Leader of the Opposition Arnhim Eustace says that his party is looking into the matter of opposition lawmaker Nigel “Nature” Stephenson having driven an unlicensed vehicle for several years.

“What has happened in that matter, Nature, at least, has had the guts to come out and say honestly what has happened. The New Democratic Party has to deal with that matter and we are doing so at the present time,” Eustace said Monday on his weekly radio programme.

“I am not going to make any further statement yet. But, at least, he has had the honesty to come forward and admit … And we will deal with the matter,” Eustace further said.

Stephenson admitted to I-Witness News last Friday that he has been driving since 2010 a vehicle he knew to be unlicensed.

His admission came after Minister of Transport Julian Francis told Parliament in December that an opposition lawmaker had not paid a cent in vehicle license since 2009.

Francis, however, did not name the lawmaker.

Stephenson told I-Witness News he obtained the vehicle from a used car dealer in 2009 and has been paying for it over time, but when he tried to renew the licence in 2010 he was unable to do so, because he did not have document to prove ownership.

  1. THE OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE REALM OF THE NATURAL MYSTICS

    In regards to the public confession of Mr Nigel “Nature” Stephenson, elected Representative of South Leeward-on the issue of driving an unlicensed vehicle;we wish to make it abundantly clear that we do not support such dotishness; how could anyone with a modicum of common sense, not obtained the necessary paperwork for a vehicle that they are buying? Not to mention having already paid $20,000 for the vehicle; it is the height of stupidity to have gotten into such transaction in the first place.

    We wish to state categorically that Mr Stephenson is infallible. However, this was a one time momentarily lapse in judgement and in no way should this event be construed as some inherent character flaw of Mr Stephenson. Mr Stephenson’s character is beyond reproach and has never been called into question since he was born and is looked upon as the beacon of goodwill and hope in his community. Mr Stephenson have such congenial disposition, that a car dealer could take 20,000 from him and yet convince him that the car still belongs to the him, the dealer. But Mr Stephenson effervescent personality even goes further in embracing his detractors; many a stories have been told by the elders,how his fiercest critics have been intoxicated by his words and deeds that they too have come to the profound realization that he is a great man and they all shouted in great voice…Naaaaturrrre!!!…albeit at your own peril.

    Mr Stephenson is so great that he once woke up in the middle of the night and climbed a coconut tree in a three piece Dormeuil suit and aubercy shoes where he picked 36 coconuts and put them in his Tom Ford alligator duffle strapped over his shoulder with a smile on his face with hardly a glimmer of sweat on his brow in the searing heat all for the old decrepit senile people in his community who wanted to drink coconut water but for some ungodly reason is reluctant to climb the tree such is the magnanimous disposition of the man Nigel “Nature” Stephenson.

    Let it be known that Mr Stephenson firmly believe in the laws of this country and strive to uphold them unequivocally. We strongly believe there is no need for further disciplinary action against Mr Stephenson as we believe the public humiliation is enough of a cruel inhumane and unusual punishment to begin with. And will respect any fair and reasonable steps taken by the DPP, to look the other way, in the event that Julian Francis should make any attempt to recover the unpaid licensing fees owed to him.

    Respectfully yours, may Lucifer eat your porridge.

  2. Yesterday 5th. January 2015 , In your News you had someone who posted a picture of a Vincentian Passport , and a Headline stating that the current Government was selling Passports to Foreigners .

    The person did not give a link to that story which was a very blatant LIE . If you or a member of your staff had done some research or requested that ALL persons MUST PROVIDE EVIDENCE that what they are stating is ACCURATE .

    Now if you check the JAMACIA OBSERVER dated 5th. January 2015 , You will find word for word that SAME Article , in the NEWS SECTION . The truth is that this article was about an
    Iranian who OWNS A ST. KITTS / NEVIS PASSPORT , and is under scrutiny by the USA .
    NOWHERE , was there anything regarding ANYONE in possession of a St. Vincent & the Grenadines Passport .

    I sincerely hope that incidents like this are handled appropriately by You & Your Staff in the Future . Failure of persons to provide concrete evidence that what they state is accurate , is going to reduce not only your readership , but your News would be treated as being akin to Faux Noise , aka Fox News .

    Thanking you in advance , for allowing me to correct a very serious error .

    Veridical
