KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – Persons interested in investing in this country do not have to be candidates for sainthood, Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves said at a press conference on Monday.

Gonsalves was speaking in response to a column in a local newspaper, in which Patrick Ferrari accused him of being unwilling to speak to Buccament Bay Resort investor Dave Ames.

Ferrari said the international airport being built at Argyle “cannot survive without Ames”.

“Ralph don’t dare pressure Ames because of the airport … It cannot survive without Ames so they can’t afford to vex the colonial marauder …” Ferrari wrote.

But Gonsalves said that some individuals in politics, along with newspaper columnists and callers to radio programmes, “a lot of times … have so many axes to grind.”

“What kind of rubbish is that?” he said of the column.

“And anybody who knows me, thinks that I will give somebody who is doing something that is wrong a free pass? But I don’t have to come out and say the way the Prime Minister of this country deals with A, B, or C investor. “That I not checking to see if anybody who is owed? What do they know what I do? They ask me? They have the common decency to come and ask me? But they just want to run off their mouth or run off their pen,” he said.

He said that it seems that only candidates for sainthood should come here as investors.

“I don’t know where they exist. And I hear they say that this fella … was bankrupt and yet they are allowed to come here to do business.

“Donald Trump was bankrupt two or three times and they were even looking at him seriously to run for the presidency of the United States.

“American Airlines, on which they come down from Miami or New York …, they flying in bankruptcy; Air Canada for quite a while.

“Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U.S. is a mode of proceeding,” Gonsalves said and added “… bankruptcy is not a contagious disease, you know.

“It is the way people arrange their affairs if they find themselves in difficulty — a court-sanctioned way of getting themselves out of the problem to continue to do their business.”

He further said he wants “persons to be practical in going forward”.

“I want to know which businessman, which modern businessman, modern capitalist, I want to know where saintliness comes in. They [are] in … business, they are not charitable institutions. You want to make money.

“Of course, everybody has to abide by their obligation to pay their taxes, pay their bills. [If] they offend workers there are laws and so forth.

“But let us don’t appear as though we are just, at least some people, … going along and losing their practical sense as to how we have to live by holding firm to principles,” Gonsalves said.

The Buccament Bay Resort and Ames have come under scrutiny recently as some categories of workers there have not been receiving their salaries consistently.

There have been questions about the legitimacy of Ames and his companies even as U.K. residents sue Harlequin Properties (Caribbean) Ltd., a company registered here, over monies they deposited to build cabanas on a beach resort in the Dominican Republic.

  1. patrick ferrai is really a whole lot dumber than he looks.He need to shut the hell up with his dotishness and get a life.

    1. Jeannine James says:

      I have no idea who you are and it matters not. Concerning Patrick Ferrari, I have had the opportunity to share a neighborhood with this man for a period of time and to have spoken with him on several occasions. There is nothing “dumb” or “dotish” about Patrick. You may not agree with what he says but that is hardly a good reason to descend so rapidly to pointed, personal remarks. Berating another adds nothing to the discourse. Further, there is no telling where this nonsense will end and I am just sick and tired of this genre of response to matters of public interest.. It’s not even amusing. Surely, you would not wish to have others (who may not even know Patrick) following your lead on this thread?. .

  2. Kenton, thank you for your due diligence in transcribing and publishing the intricate portions of Prime Minister’s public statements. Often, portions, such as this, gets lost.

    Now this statement deeply disturbs me. Is the Prime Minister seriously saying that as Minister of Finance, he does not consider whether of potential investors is a “candidate for sainthood” (hereinafter “saintliness”) as part of his fiduciary responsibility? “Saintliness”, as used by the PM, was made akin to not ever declaring bankruptcy, and less to having sound ethical principles.

    In order to properly evaluate the Prime Minister’s assertion, let’s put this scenario in layman terms. Your cousin borrows money from all your friends and never pays them back (because he is bankrupt). He comes to you to borrow, would you seriously lend him with a history of not paying? Most likely not! If the argument is that bankruptcy is used as a legal means of absolving oneself of financial obligations and that it is “justified” in some cases, would you, as Minister of Finance of a tiny nation as ours, get involved with someone who smirks their financial responsibilities. In layman terms, your sister wants to build a house and gets you to co-sign on a loan. She (your sister) decides that she is not paying because you will have to pay given that you co-signed and you are legally responsible for payment. Are you okay with this use of a legal technicality or process?

    The Prime Minister pointed to several companies (Air Canada and American Airlines, both of which have been operating at a loss for years), and prominent individuals, were allowed to come here and do business. It is one thing to provide a service (transportation, in the case of American Airlines), but it is quite another to join forces with questionable investors/developers when our hard earned tax money in our fragile economy. At the end of the day, you will be stuck with the financial responsibility for servicing debt if they fail to hold their end of the bargain for whatever reason. Even Americans were smart enough to extinguish Donald Trump’s presidential hopes!!

    Enter the true virtues of “sainthood”. Let’s talk about big companies and prominent individuals who did not take their ethical responsibilities seriously: Enron, (formerly Sir) Allen Stanford, Martha Stewart. While many seem to get away with stealing here and there and other forms of financial unethical behavior, it eventually catches up to them, with disastrous consequences. While some may argue that Stewart is still doing “well”, her ability to rebound from a fall from grace is far from SVG’s ability to do the same. I would argue that with our dependence on tourism, we would not survive the negative publicity and, hence, cannot afford to suffer that fate. If we continue to allow unscrupulous business men and women to take advantage of us, we too will be seen in an unfavorable light by the more ethical investors. Instead, we would continue to be bombarded with plunderers.

    The Prime Minister’s argument could be pushed further: the deduction that sometimes we need to do business with less than perfect investors (lacking saintliness) in order to progress. In layman’s terms, if we getting a dollar, we don’t care who it is from, what they do to get it, or what we have to give up in return for the dollar. Let me ask you, if your household finances are critically strained, would you let your son or daughter go prostitute his or herself to make money? Now, sadly some of us would. However, the point is, we need to set boundaries. I feel that some of Prime Minister’s boundaries are, at best, questionable. If a person has displayed unethical behavior, such as absolving themselves of repaying their debts by declaring bankruptcy, he or she is highly likely to not pay salaries earned by our hard working Vincentian people, were the act of paying these salaries to interfere with his or her financial reward. Would you see trouble and run straight into it? And if you would not, why not incorporate an investor’s “saintliness” into your financial decision making? You don’t have to have worked in the loans department of a bank to see that not doing so is bad news from the start.

    The fiduciary responsibility for St. Vincent and the Grenadines rests with the Minister of Finance, our PM, who, based on his on-paper credentials, and I may be wrong, is not learned in the realm of finance. To compound that deficiency with a complete disregard for the role that proper due diligence (financial and ethical) on prospective investors, and to even joke about it, shows a lack of understanding of his role as PM and Minister of Finance, a lack of care for the taxes collected from our citizens, and a disrespect for his accorded responsibility for securing the future of our blessed nation. Running a country is much more complicated and onerous a responsibility that deciding whether to lend a financially delinquent cousin money or prostitute one’s children, and so we should expect our financial leaders to treat it as such. Common Mr Prime Minister; do better than that!

  3. You cannot compare the Chapter 11 type of administration of the US with UK bankruptcy, when a person or firm is declared bankrupt firms are shut down and directors in many cases if proven to have done wrong are not allowed to be directors for a number of years after that, or even for life. This is something totally different to what GONSALVES is talking about and he fully well knows that, once again using his knowledge to fool the people.
    AMES name was not in the directors list of UK companies for a number of years, his wife and children held the directorships.

    Sainthood, there is another red herring from GONSALVES. To be a decent upstanding business man is not the path to sainthood, just more misleading crap, from our master liar. To be a decent and honest businessman you need not be saintly or even religious.

    Forget what Ferrari said, look at what FRANCIS said, he said the airport and Buccament are one, one cannot survive without the other. What Ferrari said was what most intelligent Vincentians have concluded a long time ago. Ferrari is another switched bon intelligent Vincentian business man, that can see right through GONSALVES and this crap administration. We must also remember Ferrari has been knocked by Harlequin, they owe him a shit load of money and will not, or cannot pay him.

    I actually believe that AMES was mislead by GONSALVES about the airport, I also believe that AMES doesn’t care one way or the other, its a good reason on his part for telling investors that the airport is the reason for the project failure.

    Giving people a free pass is one of your traits GONSALVES, there is a good instance, how about employing the three criminally convicted policemen, isn’t that a free pass? or was is it repayment of a debt? I am asking the question.

    And as for comparing Donald Trump with an Essex barrow boy, that is just yet another red herring. And then to compare American airlines, who are not flying in bankruptcy, they are in Chapter 11 Administration, something totally different. What a bunch of idiot you all are listening to this kind of morronic crap from GONSALVES.

    GONSALVES said “It is the way people arrange their affairs if they find themselves in difficulty — a court-sanctioned way of getting themselves out of the problem to continue to do their business.” We are not talking about court sanctioned Chapter 11 situation in the case of AMES. So why even mention this crap again, GONSALVES quit the crap.

    GONSALVES said, “going along and losing their practical sense as to how we have to live by holding firm to principles.” Now you see that is what we must have, ‘principles’, its you GONSALVES that have no principles, and by saying such a thing is evidence of such. With your previous admission to being a liar, links well with this admission also.

    I JUST HOPE THAT PEOPLE HERE AND IN THE DIASPORA SEE RIGHT THROUGH THIS RENDITION BY GONSALVES, WHAT A LOAD OF HORSE $hit.

  4. vincy in bad shape says:

    ‘anybody who knows me, thinks that I will give somebody who is doing something wrong a free pass’….. oh my god!!!! this man is the best ever. hahahahahaha.

    let me see: daniel, hans king, you ralph yourself….. Ralphie you are the best hahaha

    1. benjie, lawrence, 3 policemen found guilty, the Agriculture ministry red rats, the Housing ministry red rats, the Treasury department red rats, the Airport red rats, the DPP ‘passes’, the illegal Million $ 1 financial regulations transgressors, those who didn’t report on the sudden acquisition of the hefty raw cash US dollars shareout to family friends and party hack, the excessive banking by party quacks in St. Lucia, the secret investments in Dominica . . . .

Come on Mr Prime Minister; do better than that!

  6. On reflection the statement by Gonsalves about our investors not needing to be Saints, that is a disgraceful statement not worthy of the office of prime minister. What he is saying is, they do not need to of good characture. If he speaks like this what does he think, what does he not tell us. It really is time for this nasty little fat liar man to go, he obviously has wrong mixed up with right, he is out of control and in urgent need of medical attention.

  7. Check out the latest blogs on previous article ‘ALBA under threat in Bolivia [OPINION]’ it will open your eyes.

  8. It turned out that William Wise wasn’t a Saint either. By the way who did he visit in SVG three weeks ago, stayed for three days. Who and why did he visit?

  9. VINCYPOWA, are you that stupid, I am asking the question, if I knew I wouldn’t ask, you gormless idiot.

    See how quick you are with stupidity, when asked on numerous occasions about the plant and trucks purchased by the Argyle airport, or ask you about the US$1 million in cash, you stay quite. Your obviously not a Saint, Gonsalves will be pleased with you.

    By the way I checked out the opposite to Saintly, here is what I found.
    http://www.wordhippo.com/what-is/the-opposite-of/saintly.html

    The opposite to saintly is evil.

    The opposite to saintliness is evilness

    So what GONSALVES is saying he doesnt mind if investors are evil, well, well, how about that then.

  10. VINCYPOWA, Chapter 11 is an American procedure, it or its equivalent does not exist in the UK. In the UK if a company knowingly trades when the company is insolvent the directors can be held responsible for the debt. They can also be struck off and may not serve as directors of companies for a set term.

    From what I understand and am led to believe, and I may be wrong, Dave Ames was personally bankrupt, twice. A personal bankrupt cannot be a director of a company. Cannot obtain credit, borrow money, take a loan, enter into a contract, sign a lease or contract, unless he declares to the lender, person, company or institution, that he is an undischarged bankrupt.

    I suppose any UK people who signed agreements of any kind with AMES should determine if he did any of these things before he was discharged, it could be prison.

    The whole crap by Gonsalves is totally irrelevant in the case of AMES.

    GONSALVES said, “It is the way people arrange their affairs if they find themselves in difficulty — a court-sanctioned way of getting themselves out of the problem to continue to do their business.” This is crap and Gonsalves knows its crap, the procedure cannot be related to a UK bankrupt. Gonsalves was trained in law in the UK, he knows what the UK law is, so his statement can only be designed to once more fool the people.

  11. STEVE_HUGGINS says:

    VINCY POWA going totally overboard, now. When the haste, frenzy, and paranoia from you and commie gunny ?

  12. VINCYPOWA, at least I am not involved in all that dsigusting sexual filth that you practice in mens toilets. Tell the people about your cottaging, tell them about your arrest pattern.

    And you have the audacity to call me evil, you are a disgrace to Vincentian society.

    1. PETER, it seems like you’re LOSING IT.

      By the way, I guess I do not have to PAY BACK the PEOPLE of CALLIAQUA their MONEY, because I have now morphed into someone who has an ARREST PATTERN. LOL

      You are a JOKE, PETER.

      Where am I TYPING from, eh PETER, BELLE ISLE, HER MAJESTY PRISON, GOREE ISLAND, ROBBEN ISLAND or ALCATRAZ?

      Then again, maybe I am at a RESTAURANT somewhere out there in the world or maybe I am HOME JUST LAFFIN at YUH SILLY AR…

      What say you, eh Peter?

      That said; my NAME says it all.

      You’re not going to FIND a MORE PATRIOTIC and NATIONALIST VINCENTIAN than VINCYPOWA. It is why I am here to make sure a LOUSE like you and the others DO NOT get away with the NEGATIVE PROPAFANDA and SCAREMONGERING that could LEAVE a LASTING BLIGHT on the MINDS of the people of on my BLESSED St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

      PUT DAT IN YUH PIPE and SMOKE it, PETER THE DEVIL.

      1. VINCYPOWA, I decided for some time now to stop reading comments made by those idiots, however, for the past two days I was reading again.

        My view:-
        1. I continue to see “CUT AND PASTE” so nothing for me to comment about.

        2. 2015 approaching very quickly- the GADFLIES are becoming more desperate!!!

        KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, POWA!!!!

  13. VINCYPOWA, what is PROPAFANDA?

    Its no good you getting annoyed and acting childish. Your name only reminds us that you are a serial liar, because what you are not and do not have is POWER or POWA, whatever that means.

    BUB

  14. VINCYPOWA, thank heavens that almost everyone that visits this site knows you are a liar and deceiver, they don’t need me to help them with that.

    Your sole aim is to try and make sure that people don’t believe the truth, everything that you write is tainted with lies, innuendos, and downright misrepresentation.

    You have been at it for so long, all over the internet on many different web sites, that we all know you as a liar and deceiver.

    1. PETER, REPEATING a LIE doesn’t make it TRUTH.

      Frankly, you’re PROJECTING thoughts of self unto me. But that has been your MODUS OPERANDI on this blog from day one, so it is not surprising that you are still preaching the same line to this day..

  15. By the way why has the killing of the Venezuelans and the Customs officer at Union Island been pushed into a corner of the cupboard of secrecy. Even if this was a mammoth screw up, we the people deserve to know.
    No guns found, no cocaine found, no crime committed, 4 people dead.

    Isn’t it amazing, if a boat load of drugs or contraband was found Gonsalves would of been jumping up and down claiming it was success in which he was in some way responsible. But when things are screwed up, its hidden, not a word from the great liar king.

    TELL US THE TRUTH, WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE LIES.

    1. Peter:
      Could it be that he is busy mourning the millions (of dollars) that the country doesn’t already have to compensate the Venezuelian families major screw up? Note: It’s just a question. I am no privy to his thoughts.

  16. seriously?St.Vincent doesn’t have to be a country of morally bankrupt/degenerate prime ministers and investors,you know if a certan peron wan’t pm he’d make a killing repreenting william wise etc in their criminal cases

    1. JAHU, R U STUPID or just ACTING like you’re?

      Dr. Gonsalves was one of the BEST LAWYERS in the ENTIRE CARIBBEAN, so quite naturally people are going to want him to REPRESENT them in a COURT of LAW.

      By the way, it seems like you and the rest of the RALPH HATERS are just JEALOUS and ENVIOUS of Dr. Ralph Gonsalves’ ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

      It is as if you VEX with the man for WORKING HARD, DAY and NIGHT, to get to where he was then and where he is now while you probably sat on your BUTT doing nothing of SIGNIFICANCE to IMPROVE your SITUATION in LIFE.

      You should THANK the MAN ABOVE that you have a GOVERNMENT under the LEADERSHIP of Dr. Gonsalves who is now GIVING VINCENTIANS who were not born with a SILVER SPOON in their MOUTHS the OPPORTUNITY to WORK their way out of POVERTY by GIVING them the OPPORTUNITY to further their EDUCATION and to SECURE FREE SCHOLARSHIPS for them in COUNTRIES all over the GLOBE.

      Of course, we cannot forget the LAPTOPS for STUDENTS programme, the YES programme, the student loan programme, the NO INCOME, LOW INCOME and MIDDLE INCOME programmes and other PROGRESSIVE INITIATIVES of this PROGRESSIVE GOVERNMENT.

      For example, Kenton Chance probably would not have gotten the OPPORTUNITY to STUDY and gain his BACHELOR and MASTER DEGREES in TAIWAN if it wasn’t for the STEADFASTNESS of this ULP GOVERNMENT.

      I want you to tell me what the then NDP GOVERNMENT did for 17 years to ELEVATE the LIVES of POOR PEOPLE in this COUNTRY?

      I know what you’re going to say so I will say it for you…the SQUATTING PROGRAMME and the 50 dollars so-called POOR RELIEF PROGRAMME.

      Those were the two programmes that the NDP initiated to elevate the LIVES of the POOR in St. Vincent and the
      Grenadines for over 17 years.

      Yes LADIES and GENTLEMEN, that is the PARTY these FANATICS and the VULTURES of the NDP want to govern this BLESSED LAND once more. They MISSED the SQUATTING and the 50 dollars POOR RELIEF stipend.

      1. STEVE_HUGGINS says:

        In the 1989 SVG General Elections season, U.N. Ambassador Johnathan PETERS bluntly accused opposition MNU candidate Ralph everard Francis/Gonsalves of having been “BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON IN HIS MOUTH”.

        You would ah never know that ‘Gunny could tun RED so. Ralphie turned all kinda RED.

        Now this purblind minion is COPYING the JOHNNY PETERS’ CASTIGATION OF “RALPH BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON IN HIS MOUTH” – – – to apply it to Gonsalves’ political opponents. Thank you, John PETERS. IF it wasn’t for you, plenty ah we woulda never be know.

        Yuh nah hear ?

        Ralphie barn with a silver spoon in he mash mouth.

  17. seriously?St.Vincent doesn’t have to be a country of morally bankrupt/degenerate prime ministers and investors,you know if a certan person wasn’t pm he’d make a killing representing william wise etc in their criminal cases…but the ulp is a get rich quick scheme for a few people,tha ponzi scheme is on the verge of collapse

  18. We already know that investors don’t need to be Saintly, when GONSALVES takes blood money from Iran for investment in the Argyle airport.

    Iran torture’s, murder’s, executes, imprisons’ Christians, just for being Christians, in return for their money we turn a blind eye and even condone the killing of Christians in Iran, we vote in the favor of Iran at the UN, that’s the price we pay for their money. The airport at Argyle ‘The Christian Blood Airport’ [CBA] is cursed by the taking of money based on the blood of Christians.

    The curse taints every politician and investor that knows that the Iranian money is Christian Blood money, if you invest your money with that based on the blood of Christians it may be that you and your family are also cursed.

    SAINTHOOD is out of the question whilst under the Marxist regime of GONSALVES, he ensures that you will never be Saintly. Remember he told us he only does Obeah for the Lord, that should ensure he will never achieve Sainthood.

    IS THE ULP A PONZI SCHEME?

    WHERE DID THE US MILLION DOLLARS IN CASH COME FROM? PROVE TO US IF YOU CAN THAT ITS CLEAN MONEY.

    TIME TO TELL US THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT THE UNION ISLAND MASSACRE.

    WHEN WILL THE CASE AGAINST THE NYPD POLICE OFFICER, INSULTED BY THE BOY GONSALVES COME FORWARD? TELL US ABOUT THAT. WE JUST NEED TO KNOW THAT THE UNDIPLOMATIC BEHAVIOR BY THE BOY IS BEING PROPERLEY REWARDED.

    TELL US IF THE WORK OF MAURICE BISHOP THAT YOU HAVE DECLARED YOU WILL FINISH, INCULDES COOKING THE BOOKS, TAPPING PHONES, SHUTTING DOWN NEWSPAPERS AND RADIO STATIONS, IMPRISONING CITIZENS WITHOUT TRIAL, TAKING INSTRUCTIONS FROM CUBA.
    BECAUSE THESE WERE ALL PART OF MAURICE BISHOPS WORK, FACTUALLY RECORDED AND HELD AT THE PUBLIC RECORDS OFFICE IN GRANADA.

    TELL US WHEN THE ALL THE LAND OWNERS WILL BE PAID FOR THEIR LAND THAT WAS CONSFICATED AT ARGYLE FOR THE CHRISTIAN BLOOD AIRPORT..

    IS THERE GOING TO BE AN ENQUIRY INTO THE PURCHASING OF PLANT AND MACHINARY AT ARGYLE?

    WHAT HAS HAPPENED ABOUT THE CATERING SCAM AND THEFT BY FRAUD AT ARGYLE? HOW ABOUT AN UPDATE.

    TELL US SOMETHING CREDIBLE THAT WE CAN BELIEVE, ABOUT WHY YOU GAVE DAVE AMES ECONOMIC CITIZENSHIP.

    TELL US AGAIN WHY YOU GAVE A MAN A DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT, A PERSON WHO WAS NOT A DIPLOMAT, A MAN THAT WAS CAUGHT CARRYING A KILO OF COCAINE WHILST USEING THE DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT AT LONDON AIRPORT.

    ARE YOU HAPPY THAT PEOPLE IN SVG AND WORLD WIDE ARE STILL ASKING ABOUT THE FIVE INDIVIDUAL SEXUAL ACCUSATIONS THAT WERE MADE AGAINST YOU?

    TELL US WHY THERE ARE CUBANS WORKING IN OUR MINISTRIES?

    TELL US WHY YOU TOOK US INTO ALBA WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OR CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE.

    TELL US ABOUT THE ALBA MILITARY SCHOOL, HOW MANY VINCENTIANS HAVE HAD MILITARY AND POLITICAL INDOCTRINATION THERE?

    TELL US HOW MUCH MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT BY GONSALVES FOR AND WHILST TRAVELLING, DURING THE LAST 10 YEARS.

    TELL US ABOUT YOUR HOUSE IN ENGLAND.

    TELL US HOW MANY OFFICIAL CARS HAS GONSALVES AND/OR FAMILY GOT USE OF.

    TELL US WHY YOU CAN GO TO THE DIASPORA AND DISH OUT FACTS FIGURES AND STORIES THAT YOU NEVER DO IN SVG?

    TELL US WHY WE CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT YOUR DOING AND SAYING FROM REGIONAL, FOREIGN AND ONLINE NEWS REPORTS AND STATMENTS BY YOU, THAN WE CAN LEARN FROM SVG NEWSPAPERS WHO DARE NOT SAY A WORD, OR YOU DON’T GIVE THEM RELEVENT INFORMATION, WHY?

    1. PETER, STOP being an IDIOT for ONCE.

      Using your ILLOGICAL LOGIC, China “torture’s, murder’s, executes, imprisons” their own people, yet AMERICA is CHINA’S BIGGEST TRADING PARTNER. Not only that, CHINA OWNS over a TRILLION DOLLARS of AMERICA’S DEBT.

      Using more of your ILLOGICAL LOGIC, AMERICANS KILLED THOUSANDS of INNOCENT IRAQIS, LIBYANS and AFGHANISTANIS, but America still have DIPLOMATIC and TRADE RELATIONS with those countries.

      PAKISTANIS KILLED CHRISTIANS but AMERICA still have DIPLOMATIC and TRADE RELATIONS with PAKISTAN.

      SAUDI ARABIANS KILL CHRISTIANS, but AMERICA still has DIPLOMATIC and TRADE RELATIONS with SAUDI ARABIA

      ISRAELIS KILLED INNOCENT MUSLIMS yet AMERICA still has DIPLOMATIC and TRADE RELATIONS with ISRAEL.

      The FACT of the MATTER is this; having DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS with a COUNTRY doesn’t mean that the other country CONDONES whatever it deems to be against its POLICY.

      Look, I can go on and on to show you the STUPIDITY and NAIVETY of your arguments, but that would be just WASTING time on your DISTRACTING tactic.

      By the way, the INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT at ARGYLE, which ARNHIM EUSTACE, the NDP and their IGNORANT and NAIVE FOLLOWERS called a PHANTOM PROJECT, is coming along NICELY.

      It is only the ULP GOVERNMENT with its VISIONARY LEADER, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, who could have MADE this POSSIBLE.

      They CONTINUE to do the PEOPLE’S WORK while Eustace and the NDP continue to make a MOCKERY of themselves.

  19. MESSAGE TO ALL CARIBBEAN LEADERS:

    If you invest in LIAT, you will be given a written guarantee of SAINTHOOD from the LIAR KING, who I think is an expert in signing worthless agreements.

  20. My fellow Vincentians, and friends of Vincy, IF VincyPowa is a NATIONALIST, and he has succumbed to up-holding the SOCIALIST ideology of Commie Ralphie, THEN that would make VINCY POWA a NATIONAL SOCIALIST – – – i.e., a NAZI.

    NATIONALISM plus SOCIALISM = NAZIISM.

    Mine Fueher ADOLPH HITLER [ sic Schigglegruber ] was the worshipped cultist mis-leader of THE GERMAN SOCIALIST WORKERS’ PARTY, or the NAZI PARTY. Deutche Socialiste . . .

    Maybe it should not be any wonder that the grovelling ‘vincypowa’ worships his Duvalierist PAPA DOC with such blind, pagan, idolatry. Like the deluded denizens of ANIMAL FARM . . . NAPOLEON IS ALWAYS RIGHT !!!

    Sieg hail ! Das Fueher socialiste uber alles. Hail hitler. National ‘SOCILIST’.

    I KNOW the true Vincentian NATIONALISTS, ‘powa’, and you aint come yet.

    It is the SVG NATIONALISTS WHO WILL CLEANSE HAIROUNA OF THE BLIGHTED rabid ralphie’s COMMUNISTS.

    Cubans, GET OUT OF ST. VINCENT. CUBANS, GO HOME. To hell with dotish castro, if he wants to go there.

    Vamoose, mendicant commies.

    LEAVE SVG ALONE.
