|Did I do thaaaaaat.....?|
At present, most St Lucians only hate Labour for what they can see and feel - the contraction of the economy. But while Labour is not totally deserving of the credit they get for the economic downturn, they are working on something that is totally their fault.
If you watch closely, you will see that the geniuses and intellectuals in the Labour vanguard are currently teaching the whole world an advanced course in:
How to screw up St Lucian foreign relations.
The following is a brief summary.
|I know he knows what I know that he knows I know|
First, you have to say you know something about Richard Frederick, but not tell the public no matter how many times you promise that you will.
Then you have to lose an election to John Compton because you gave him and his modern band of misfits too much time to organize against you. You have to do this against the advice of all your best counselors so that even people in your own party are vexed like hell with you. Of course, when John Compton kicks your butt with his most senile foot in the 2006 election, you must behave yourself until after he passes away and the pinheads who were under him start to fight amongst themselves.
That is when you have to run to international agencies in Barbados and elsewhere to trying to trigger off investigations into the extra-judicial killings.
Once the international investigations are triggered off, you use what you can as campaign kerosene. But once you win the next election, then you must refuse to co-operate with the international agencies and in fact, you must write to the State Department asking them to discontinue the investigations that you made them start.
|Making Kenny look like a bluffer since 2006|
And still, you have nothing substantial to say about Richard Frederick. You are beginning to look like a bluffer, but that is okay for now, because based on your strategy, it seems you are trying to look like something much worse than a bluffer. It will look like you are a protector and a collaborator. People close to you are beginning to suspect bad things, but they are staying silent because they love Labour more than they love St Lucia. More than they love themselves.
You have successfully alienated some of your base, disappointed many left-leaning independents, eroded your own credibility and given America legitimate reasons to be totally pissed off with you, when in fact they wanted nothing more than your co-operation and you could have called some creative shots on them to relieve the plight of your people. Genius.
Now while all of this is going on the economy is contracting like Guy Joseph in labor.
The Taiwanese are the only ones of all your friends who have free money to help relieve you, but you must resist the temptation to write proposals for agricultural restoration and construction of production oriented projects. Instead you must anger the Taiwanese by continuing your fruitless flirtations with Beijing. So now, your number one protector and your richest friend are both angry at you. Excellent. Great work. But you are not done yet, are you, Doc?
To all of this error, you must add the hope that Allen Chastanet would not become leader of Flambeau and repair relations between Taipei and UWP. Oops. Talk about error of judgment. Talk about shades of 2005. You are now in a bad head space, which apparently was your plan.
Instead of quickly trying to patch up with Taipei in order to head Flambeau off at the pass, you must ignore all good sense and try to join ALBA, knowing bloody well that it is infected and corrupted with Chinese influence and Iranian money.
Now, you are alarming both America and Taiwan at the same time. Incredible. No one would have thought it possible. Yet you have done it. Now your best friends in the world are people you do not even have diplomatic relations with. Iran and the Peoples Republic of China. You must be so proud.
And still, you have not said a word about Richard Frederick, who you made such a big deal about. An interesting game you play. It keeps everyone confused about your intentions. No one can read you. You are unreadable. Hooray. Unfortunately, this is not your game, so it looks like you are the one who is confused and does not understand what is at stake.
IT IS MUCH TOO LATE IN HISTORY FOR THIS STALINIST BULLSHIT
