Leader of the Opposition Arnhim Eustace says his family was threatened Monday night.

Eustace did not detail the nature of the threat when he spoke about it in Langley Park Tuesday night at the beginning of his New Democratic Party’s “Ring De Bell Island Tour”.

“Some people say the worst things; I get accustomed so much, I don’t even bother with them. It don’t bother me.

“Up to last night, I had threats against my family. I ain’t going   into the details of that, but I get that. None of them frightening me,” Eustace said.

He further said he is confident that the NDP, which holds seven seats in Parliament, compared to the ruling Unity Labour Party’s eight, will be elected to office at the next general elections, constitutionally due in December 2015.

“The New Democratic Party will take the reigns of government in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, that is what I am convinced about. And once we do that, we will work with the people of this country to improve the livelihood of all,” Eustace said.

This is at least the second time that Eustace has spoken about threats against him or his family.

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves has told the nation that he of multiple threats against him (Gonsalves).

    Whats the point in telling folks, how someone “threatened” you and then in the same breath, saying that you not going into details…really? Sometimes, you have to wonder if these threats are really legit or a figment of these politician’s imagination.

    If someone threatened you and your family, take it up with the Police…or put these people on blast, give time and place…and if you know name, put it out there and let the police do their job. OR GO AND BUST A HARD SLAP OR CUTLASS ON THE PERSON(s) WHO TALKING RECKLESS.

    RING DE BELL!!!!

  2. I think I spoke to soon about NDP not in election mode: It appears the NDP is on the move. I like the slogan “Ring the bell”. They should beat this like a road march right up to Election Day. They should open and close every meeting with that song. All the NDP has to do is up the tempo to get the people singing and dancing to the tune.
    Someone was admiring the young carnival queen contestants and opined how SVG has beautiful women. I wonder why Ralph and many of his supporters didn’t see or know that. Many marry foreign women, but still want to fool around with Vincy women. Wait! How many times did Ralph get married? I don’t believe any of his wives are Vincentians. Isn’t that something! Yet if you check out many villages and towns you’d find a Gonsalves.
    This is why I believe the next song to beat like a road march in Ziggys “Vincy Sweet, Vincy Nice”. I tried to get Lynch to play it last election, but he ignored me and talk about bald head Astafan instead. Meanwhile women were calling into his show to complain about how they were being treated. He totally missed the boat on that one, especially since the alleged rape issue was making the rounds. I believe women are still being abused in SVG and this is still an issue; to rings out loud and clear, so the men would begin to treat our women with respect.
