In his independence speech at the Victoria Park on Friday 27th October 2017, Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves warned citizens to beware of “ False Prophets and the Apostles of Gloom and Doom”.
“ Avoid those in whatever political garb they come, to pull down SVG, those who never see anything good within”.
Gonsalves further told Vincentians to be mindful of those who wish bad for the country.
“ Those who would see our country burn, Metaphorically, only for them to be Kings and Queens of the resulting ashes”.
Gonsalves said such persons are always in a condition of permanent dissatisfaction, truly be aware of them he said.
“ Sadly, such persons also encourage others to be in a permanent state of dissatisfaction as well”.
The Prime Minister told citizens to always remember that public policy is serious business for a serious people.
