On the eve of the 36th anniversary of Independence for St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. the Hon. Denzil Douglas, has reiterated that his St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party will continue to fight for the ideals of the masses, especially in relation to justice and economic stability.
“This was the vision for our country to which every Kittitian and Nevisian would fall heir! This was the vision and mission that propelled twenty years of progress and prosperity under the former Labour administration!” Douglas noted.
He, however, suggested that the vaults of opportunity in the federation have been bankrupted by the present Unity administration and warned that the vision and dream of our national heroes is in jeopardy.
“The Treasury of hope has been pillaged, All that has been given to the people are useless promissory notes that have failed to deliver any real or tangible benefits! The cheque of healthcare has bounced, The cheque of quality education has bounced. The cheque of affordable housing has bounced. The cheque of good governance has bounced. The cheque of morals and principles has bounced. And most importantly, the cheque of Liberty, has bounced. Our country has been bankrupted in more ways than can be counted,” Dr Douglas stated.
The opposition leader indicated that his SKNLP NextGen Team will restore the Bank of Justice and Opportunity once again in St Kitts and Nevis.
Dr Douglas said it was time to bring an end to this long night of captivity and celebrate the joyous day break of hope, opportunity and prosperity in St Kitts and Nevis.
Douglas also paid tribute to all the national heroes – their Right Excellencies Sir Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw, Sir Caleb Azariah Paul Southwell, Sir Joseph Nathaniel France, Sir Simeon Daniel Dr. Sir Kennedy Simmonds- for the indelible mark they have left on the shaping of the federation.
