Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, on Sunday, laid into some of the main opposition New Democratic Party’s candidates as the campaign for Thursday’s general elections moved into the final days.

“First of all, they say that they get Bramble to be the man to talk for the youth. Bramble introduced heself as a humble youth. Bramble is neither humble nor a youth,” Gonsalves said of the opposition New Democratic Party’s (NDP) candidate for East Kingstown, Dwight Fitzgerald Bramble.

Bramble, an economist, and former teacher, national footballer, and diplomat, is making his first bid to retain the seat, which the NDP has held since 1984.  

Gonsalves said:

“If Bramble was involved in a trade, he would have been arrested for mis-description, false representation, because everybody know he nah humble.

“Bramble is 59. Bramble is 59 years old. He just had he birthday and Bramble say he is a humble youth. In the NDP, you have a old youth say he wah talk fuh youth,” said Gonsalves, 74, who is making a bid for a fifth consecutive five-year term as prime minister, at the helm of the Unity Labour Party.

“And they say the other person who talking for youth is Kay Bacchus,” he said, referring to the NDP’s candidate for West St. George, a lawyer who is making her first bid to become an elected MP.

“Kay Bacchus old like Julian [Francis] you know. They’re the same age. They head knocking up 70. Bramble is ah old youth and Kay Bacchus is a mother young gyal,” the prime minister said to laughter.

“Both ah dem ah me friend you know and I ain’t saying nothing bad about them. I’m dealing with youth,” he said at the event that featured the singing of gospel songs.

“But look here, Orando [Brewster] is youth, Luke [Browne] is youth, Sabby [Saboto Caesar] is youth. Carlos [James] is youth. Dem ah youth,” he said, referring to the ULP’s candidate for  Central Leeward, East Kingstown, South Central Windward, and North Leeward, all of whom are in their 30s.

“Gomery younger than Kay, Mini younger than Kay,” he said, referring to Montgomery Daniel, who is seeking a fifth term as MP for North Windward, and Mineva Glasgow, a retired social security expert who is making her first bid at the polls.

“There’s nothing wrong with being 69 or 68; nothing wrong with it. But yo’ cyah pretend that yo’ young.

“In my case, I am a strong 74-year-old man. Strong. As you see how I move up and down, I ain’t one day younger than 74. But I am like old wine; it cure. It taste sweeter and better,” the prime minister said.

  1. He is really losing it and scraping the bottom of the barrel for things to say. And I notice camillo is not youth?

    Well PM you talk a lot of crap for an old man. No person is responsible for his or her age. It would be good to hear you talk about your record of 19 years and how Vincentians have benefitted from your period in office.
    Most Vincentians have benefitted very little from your period in office. You have helped the rich. Crushed the middle class. Punished the poor. Your have made women and chidren suffer. That is a shameful record of your period in office. And I haven’t mentioned increased poverty yet.
    PM you must go now. Don’t RUIN SVG any more. In any case you must know by now. You are a POLITACAL DEAD MAN WALKING.
    NDP leaders put forward a brilliant case against you in the political campaign. The Jurors. The VOTERS will find guilty on Thursday. You will get your political burial on Friday. PM you will be happy, dressed all in RED your coffin in the colour RED as well. Your political grave diggers and their tools will be in the colour RED.
    Now there is a problem. We must give you the hounour of PM at your political funeral. We must drape your political coffin in the SVG flag. And we not sure you like those colours, green blue and yellow. Especially YELLOW. Because yellow is the colour of NDP and it is the people dressed in Yellow made case against you.
    You must be running scared of the colour.
    There is a further issue. You can’t have RED earth around your political coffin. Because the EARTH belongs to SVG. NOT the ULP.
    PM there will be no political rising for you. You had enough time to make your political WILL. Them say you passed you political things to your son. As the leader of ULP you can do that. But the Office of PM is not for you to passed on to your son. This Office is in the hands of Vincentians. The VOTERS. They will vote for the PM they want.
    PM I did admire some of you qualities: your political strenght, your eloquence, charisma and so must more. You are a brilliant man. Brilliant, briliant. The pity is you did not used your tallents to benefit most Vincentians. If you kept away from some of those big projects and focused on those things that affect Vincentians daily. If only you cared for women and children more. If only you grew the economy to reduce unemployment. If only you built a new hosppital. If only you distribted income fairly.
    Now I know doing all of the above would have been difficult. But you never tried in most cases.
    Before I go PM I must point out another one of your weaknesses. You lack MATURITY. You should never have said
    that you would make SVG UNGOVERNABLE.

    The only thing that is strong is the smell of self praise, linked to the gluttony makes is a double sin in the eyes of the Lord.

    All the good in your life comes from Christ and all the bad comes from you. Your righteous deeds are filthy rags. You deserve nothing, but Christ allows you to breathe. If you must boast, then boast on what Christ did for you on the cross. Humble yourself and let someone else praise you. Do all things for the Glory of God not to show off. If someone does praise you, then remain humble.

    1. Jeremiah 9:23-24 This is what the LORD says: “Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches. But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the LORD who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the LORD, have spoken!

    2. Proverbs 27:2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.

    3. Isaiah 64:6 We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind.

    4. Matthew 6:2 So when you give to the poor, don’t announce it with trumpet fanfare. This is what hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets in order to be praised by people. I can guarantee this truth: That will be their only reward.

    5. 1 Corinthians 13:3 And if I donate all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body in order to boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.

    6. Galatians 6:14 As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world has been crucified, and the world’s interest in me has also died.

    7. 1 Corinthians 1:31 Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the LORD.”

    8. 2 Corinthians 10:17 But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

    9. Proverbs 29:23 A person’s pride will bring about his downfall, but the humble in spirit will gain honor.

    10. Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom.

    11. Proverbs 8:13 All who fear the LORD will hate evil. Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance, corruption and perverse speech.

    12. James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the Lord’s presence. Then he will give you a high position.

    13. Psalm 25:9 He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way.

    14. Proverbs 18:12 Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.

    15. Luke 18:11-14 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people–robbers, evildoers, adulterers–or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

    There are hundreds of verses about gluttony, but I think those about self praise are to the current subject.

    Comrade as a good person you cannot even begin to be an equal of Kay Bacchus, she is so your superior being.

    Everything you currently say and do compounds the fact it is time for you to go, then perhaps this disrespectfulness of your superiors will stop.

  4. Can’t some one help this giant toddler? , clearly need help. where are those Christians who are supporting this man? thank God, hell is rreal
