After four terms in office, it would appear that supporters of the Unity Labour Party are a bit tired, and have spoken out publicly about such.
Complaints of the party’s radio program not attracting new persons, the slow pace and unsavoury remarks about the recent killings, along with numerous complaints about various representatives, some have gone thus far to ask if the leader is tired and ready to give up.
But the head of the party Dr Ralph Gonsalves said he is far from being “Tired”.
Gonsalves speaking on the radio last Friday said, people, see him and see how he functions, with new initiatives among them.
“ The thing is I am not tired, but it is important for us to have within the leadership new blood and I have been involved in that exercise”.
“ We are refreshing the leadership”, Gonsalves said.
Gonsalves said that critics had noted Montgomery Daniel to be a weak candidate, with Roberts, Woods, Daniel and Baptiste all contesting against him and lost.
“ I don’t bother with nonsense, one of the reasons why I have stayed ahead of this game is because I don’t worry about what “unscientific school children say”, you know.
“ I observe things and analyse them carefully”.
Gonsalves said some persons who present things as received wisdom, when you analyse it, its pure folly.
“ Social media is one of those places where you find such stupidity, a lot of it”.
Gonsalves says he pays social media no mind. Am simply told whats going on, he said.
