Comrade Ralph accuses the NDP of going overboard

9/02/10 SVG Today

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves thinks that the opposition New Democratic Party (NDP) has gone overboard in relation to persons they have recruited to help them with their election campaign.

The PM said that he is planning to send a letter to CARICOM that highlights what he calls the “unpatriotism of the Opposition New Democratic Party (NDP)”.

“I have drafted a letter and I will send it out to the people of the Caribbean and to every leader of the CARICOM member states to say to them that the New Democratic Party has involved former colonialists from Britain and those who have no interest in our country, like the Tea Party activists who fighting Obama who is trying to help the black people in America”, said Gonsalves recently.

According to the Prime Minister, the opposition New Democratic Party (NDP) has aligned itself with persons who have in the past done work for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). Speaking recently, the PM described the action as, “dangerous” as apart from other things the NDP is conducting fundraisers abroad at which they are asking persons for money, “to save St. Vincent and the Grenadines”.  The persons who the PM said the NDP are using in what he thinks is a smear campaign are United States businessmen Dave Copps and Blake Burris.

“The NDP has aligned itself with the colonialists, the Tea Party types, who are against Obama to try to bring down the Government of St.Vincent and the Grenadines and to defame us,” said Gonsalves while describing some of the things persons are saying abroad as, “a dastardly lie”.
