The entire country – including honest St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party supporters – was appalled on hearing of the letter written to the Canadians urging the withdrawal of support for the new pier.
Already working for the Dominica CBI and against the interest of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. Douglas displayed his lack of loyalty to our State.
Dr. Douglas has every right to oppose the sitting government. Such is the nature of our political system. However, his angst must not go to the point of betraying the State.
Now the acts of betrayal continue in the letter to Ralph Gonsalves re the presence of the RSS on our soil. He said that he took no responsibility for crime but now he is saying (implying) that the safety of the people is not at his heart. The RSS is here to help in protecting SKNLP, PAM, PLP, CCM, NRP supporters – THE CITIZENS!
It is hard to accept that in a country of 98% literacy, even persons who went to university are referring to the RSS as a Foreign Force. The RSS is not a Foreign Force. If so, then the West Indies Cricket Team is a Foreign Team.
St. Kitts and Nevis has members in the RSS and our service people have served in other places. Also it has to be emphasized that the RSS is grounded in Law. And the RSS has been here before, eg after storms.
The right that Dr. Harris is employing, ie a legal right, is the same that Dr. Douglas had while in office. But Dr. Douglas is known for his disrespect for fairness, moving the goal posts.
The Douglasites are maliciously using terms like Mongoose gang, Tonton Macoute. But per usual they forget what they did to the people and the opposition in their 20 years.
Many families can speak of the experiences of their children getting beaten up and harassed by the service people. Jam Down Manners was hauled into courts for wearing a shirt or holding a poster.
In the 2004 elections Kimberly took pictures of the illegal voters in #4. Her house was raided by army and police and her camera, phone, computer etc. taken. Many young men were arrested and later challenged their cases of unlawful arrest.
The whole Nation saw when Lindsay Grant was brutalised by the police. All with the instruction of one particular person. Dr. Douglas was aiming to bring into our lives a military State.
The letter is not only an act of a traitor, but the dilemma existing in the region. Dr. Ralph Gonsalves has been made OECS head since his last election, the results of which are in the courts.
Ralph Gonsalves has been here on the Labor platform, and to SKNLP conferences. This is the man Dr. Douglas is writing to.
Dr. Harris, is the leader of St. Kitts and Nevis and this position demands respect. He has the right to make decisions for SKN as Ralph Gonsalves has for St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Where is the principle of “Internal Affairs”, so touted by Douglas and Gonsalves.
Is Dr. Douglas asking Dr. Gonsalves – his Labour comrade – to decide on matters affecting the National Security of St. Kitts and Nevis.
He and the Douglasistes have a history of blocking the entry of the RSS as they did at the RLB; today they are attempting other means because they savour chaos. The RSS has to be more versatile as it relates to entering our OECS State. There has to be a sea option or fly in; and they tek like a boat.
It is this thus clear that Dr. Douglas is looking the help and bias of his Labour comrades in their CBI and is now hoping for the co-operation of Dr. Gonsalves to block an effort to provide security for the people of St. Kitts and Nevis.
He wants to see chaos and crime take over St. Kitts and Nevis. He took no responsibility for crime in his tenure and today, in opposition, he is hoping to benefit for his legacy of Law and Order.
He told the people in 1995 that Law and Order would be his priority. But in 2004 he said that he was taking no responsibility for crime.
Dr. Harris is urged to keep up his efforts in providing the support in the fight against crime. His actions are those of a responsible leader, not a man who said that he “Bad Since Me Barn”
The criminals saw the type, the ally in the person of Denzil Douglas. Dr. Harris is right to let this group know that they will find no friend in the Unity government.
The letter to Dr. Gonsalves from Dr. Douglas is a letter of a traitor! The traitor writes again!
