It is with deep regret that I inform you that a letter, “Open letter to The Vincentian newspaper” which I wrote, and asked I-Witness News to publish, was deeply flawed and contained a number of incorrect and untrue statements.

On Monday June 8 2015 at 2.03 pm London time which is 9:03 a.m. in St. Vincent, I wrote a letter from London entitled “Open letter to the Vincentian Newspaper” which I emailed to the Editor of the Vincentian newspaper at the times stated. In that letter I accused and stated as fact that The Vincentian newspaper had not made any reference to the matter of the Garifuna and Arnhim Eustace. That which I wrote about on that subject was totally untrue. I also wrote some disparaging remarks for which I apologise and withdraw.

From the date and time of my emailed copy of my letter, I never received a reply or comment from or by the Vincentian, or any request to withdraw it or change and correct the content. Still up to the moment of writing this communiqué I have had no contact with or from the Editor of The Vincentian and no complaint whatsoever from them.

I-Witness News has brought the error to my attention with a rebuke.

This matter came about because I of a mix-up in the dates of the newspapers.

But regardless of that I wish it known that I unequivocally apologise for the content of that letter to the Vincentian, I also apologize to any media that posted it.

Sincerely

Peter Binose

    I apologize in no way for my comments following your first letter that print journalism is a dying media form and that The Vincentian newspaper is destined to be the first Vincentian casualty.

    I trace the origin of its demise from its purchase by Uncle Metro. If you look at papers from the early days (in the archives), you will know why.

  2. YOU really are a piece of Work , hence my decision to call you a Jester . Your Artistry in
    Cutting & Pasting is legendary . Frankly your Credibility is just about ZERO . What is very dangerous , is the fact that some in SVG are drinking the Kool Aid that you are selling .

    If you keep on doing your Cut & Paste artistry , there is no doubt in my mind , that you are
    going to apologize a number of times in the future . Perhaps you believe that you can get away with spreading false news throughout the Region . One of these days you are likely to
    land in the Big House .

    I find it interesting , that you mildly chided Mr. Chance for not publishing what you wanted him to publish . Perhaps he is beginning to see through You . Not to long ago , I had to pull you up in this very online newspaper . Let me quote an old adage to You :

    ” TIME LONGER THAN TWINE ”

    VERIDICAL
