Youth Arm President Speaks Out
This is how nasty politics get in St.Lucia when politicians ask citizens to engage in criminal acts against another government minister. Propaganda has plagued the St.Lucia Labour Party platform for a number of months now during their vicious electioneering campaign. Harold Dalson’s statement on a platform in the Choiseul village is a wakeup call for us Choiseulians and by extension St. Lucians alike to realize how low some politicians will stoop to strengthen themselves. Mr.Dalson’s statement, “The people of Choiseul/Saltibus when you'll see Rufus Bousquet stop him and push your hands in his pockets and take your money.” This statement is towards the Parliamentary Representative for Choiseul/Saltibus Rufus Bousquet, whom Harold Dalson allegedly claimed misused Taiwanese funds which were allocated to him.
Now here I stand as the President of the UWP Choiseul/Saltibus Youth Arm analysing this statement made by Mr. Dalson on Wednesday 26th October 2011 at a public meeting in the Choiseul village. This statement only contributes to violence which we are trying to control in our country. Not only is the statement asking persons to engage in criminal acts, it's disrespectful to the people of Choiseul/Saltibus, Soufriere /Fond Jacques constituency and the entire population of St.Lucia.
So we the youth of Choiseul/Saltibus stand united and demand an apology from Mr. Harold Dalson and the St.Lucia Labour Party.
