SVG Newest Industry "Pulling Down Ralph"

St Vincent and the Grenadines has a new industry, that’s according to Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves while speaking on WEFM last Sunday.

Gonsalves said while persons are estimating SVG, he was speaking about Caricom endorsement of SVG’S bid for the UN security council seat, those at home are doing the opposite.

“ You have an industry at home and abroad, all they care about is removing a government at all cost, and to see how they can punish those persons here in government particularly Ralph”.

Gonsalves said this goes beyond the normal competitive language which you will use during elections, or during the normal rough and tumble of politics.

“ You may recall in the year 2000, just before the elections of 2001, a man name Nano said Eustace borrowed money from him and never paid back, some $300,000 or whatever the number, and they have the evidence and all the rest of it, Eustace said he would sue, well he did not sue, that does not what Nano was saying was true”.

Gonsalves said form his side some persons started the propaganda saying that Eustace is corrupt.

“ You would recall I entered the picture and I said in the absence of any evidence, if I have to choose between Eustace word and Nano’s word, I would choose Eustace word any day”.

Gonsalves note that supporters were angry with him but leadership involves saying what is nonsense from what is not.

He said it’s not the first time he has done that, but you have to draw some lines somewhere.

“ I remember Matthew Thomas on an MNU platform criticise Sir James personal domestic life, and went as far as saying, quote and quote has is concubine living with him in the Prime Ministers residence”.

“ I took the stage immediately following that and told those listening, I don’t share that view as leader of the MNU and am not getting into that type of discussion, Matthew was vexed with me, but I told him you cross the line man”.

Gonsalves said you have an industry which has grown up, concern with just pulling down Ralph and anybody close to him, to see if they can hurt.

It’s a short step where they go, having Ralph and St Vincent as co-terminus, we overlap we are one and the same thing, so you have to pull down SVG.

Gonsalves said all these ties in with the petitions and it is not just an ordinary petition, it would be remembered, that one broadcaster for which he believes was subsequently charged, essentially encouraging persons to rebellion, trying to stop a government from being sworn in.

He said one thing is sure, you will not find Ralph’s name or any other politician name involved in anything, but there is a political price for that sort of behaviour.


  1. Quite true when these criticisms are defamatory, scatalogical, demonstrably false, grossly distorted, deliberatley exaggerated, or otherwise inappropriate.
    Constructive or restorative criticism based on hard and verfiable facts, however, should be welcomed in a true democracy.
    Unfortunately, most of the garbage and nonsense that has been written and posted here and elsewhere by Ralph-haters and those whom the Prime Minister has rightly called Internet crazies only serve to harm the reputation of the country while calling into question the sanity, credibility, and true motives of the accusers.

    • The real truth is that most of the false, distorted and deliberately exaggerated remarks are coming from Ralph Gonsalves himself, but toward the opposition, such as what he did to Ms. Fredrick. Look at what he did to a disadvantaged citizen like Yugge Ferrell.
      One of the techniques of politicians, especially Gonsalves, is to accuse your opponents of that what you youself are guilty of. It makes people believe he is “holier than thou”. It is much like Hillary Clinton accusing Trump of collusion with Russia when she herself is far more guilty. Not just because she arranges to sell to Russia Uranium to make nuclear bombs, but much, much more.
      It is not difficult to observe that the dirtiest politician in the country is a master of fooling the people, it is too bad that even a few highly educated people are easily fooled by him. Most educated Vincentians have however figured him out. Only a large segment of those that have been pushed into the very-poor class, waiting for a free house or building supplies remain blind.
      An example here at home of such tricks and deceptions of one in his party is when Julian Francis attacked G. Friday for quoting the bible when in truth the politician that quotes the bible more than any, is Ralph Gonsalves. Part of the reason is to scare Friday from using Bible quotes because that is reserved for Ralph’s party alone. Maybe because he was appointed by God and his son is like Jesus.

  2. Lostpet I exactly! Just to add, there are so much that these people of this illegal regime has done is unforgiving. They’re also very arrogant people who are sucking the life blood out of the people and the country in a whole. Who the hell does HE and the rest think they are?! How dear HE challenge the will of the people! If you have to go you simply have to go! NO politician nor his government does anyone any favor when they do something or even good for that matter. They’re paid to do what they’re suppose to for the people’s benefit and country. What nonsense! Behaving like they’re not suppose to be moved. Out of place! And when people were fed up with Mitchell and his bunch and they were criticizing, were they deemed as Mitchell’s haters? Your masters (the people) have ALL right to criticize you regardless! They owe you nothing! If you stand the heat get out of the dam kitchen!! Anyone who succumbs to these politricksters psychology is a fool! Nuff said for now.

  3. Get rid of Ralf Gonsalves and the ULP. How is this UN move going to benefit the poor people of SVG? At almost 50 percent overall unemployment and much higher youth unemployment. Are we to follow this idiot over the cliff? Or sit down and take it and say nothing. I don’t know why some people want to pretend that this is not happening and that the criticism is unfair. God when you get back from vacation, please answer us.
