St. Lucia's Attorney General has been launched
The Choiseul contingency headed by Rufus Bousquet rolled into the launch area with a motorcade of about thirty seven vehicles including buses, trucks, cars and motorcycles.
The immediate area of the launch was a sea of soggy ground with small pools of water here and there. The area was recently graded and the intermittent showers saturated the soil thus making the ground very muddy.
All members of the party were present with the exception of Janine, whom as this post is being written, heard “Jouk Bois” say that she has resigned from the party. One could sense an aura of confidence among the occupants on the stage as speaker after speaker confirmed the audience’s hope, that UWP will win the next general elections. Spider was rather forceful as he tore to shreds a number issues which the leader of the opposition mentioned sometime ago….one being the calling of elections on its anniversary.
Lorenzo “Doddy” Francis was the man of the moment as introductions by both his wife and daughter gave credence to the man. Mr. Francis in culminating his speech closed by saying, “Doddy, gets it done.”
The gathering at the rally looked more less like about six to seven thousand making Pep’s launch look like a house party, so said an Anse la Raye supporter.
Ricky T provided much entertainment for the massive crowd; off and on using his versility to merge a little politics in his repertoires. These was humorously received by everyone.
Seeing the reactions of the supporters of Labour in certain pockets in the community of Choiseul, as Sunday's motorcade rolled through the district on its way to Culdesac, it left me to reflect a little, and left a question which still lingers on my mind. Are the majority of Labourites in this district noisy and insultive persons, who tackle the supporters of the opposite side on their personal business rather than political issues? Was it meant to be so, or did 'Choiseul Labour' design it to be so? Food for thought? The video below is a clip of Ricky T.
Please take the poll on the right. Thank you.
