In these modern and enlightened times, there are certain propagandists who claim in effect that the real Labour Party is the PLP that is the People’s Labour Party.
They claim that the PLP is the real Labour Party simply because it has People as part of its name and the St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party does not.
Those dim-witted persons do not use logic or common sense nor do they go back in history. A short travel back in history would show the true roots of the St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party and the fact that it came into being to improve the lot if the common ordinary man and woman in the street.
The PAM Party like the PLP has people as part of its name that is The People’s Action Movement, but just like the PLP, the PAM cared very little for the people during the PAM’s time in Government.
A reading of the Commission of Inquiry Report by Sir Louis Blom-Cooper would reveal some of the most important of the tricks practised by the PAM Government against the people of St. Kitts and Nevis.
It must be remembered that PAM was not formed to protect the rights, benefits and privileges of the working class people, but to stop the Labour Party from being able to do so.
So the word People in the name People’s Labour Party is of no real significance except as a propaganda item inserted in the name just to fool the gullible and the uninformed.
The PLP knows that the greedy and corrupt persons within our society who love wealth and riches would do anything for the sake of money and so the leading members of the PLP sought out those greedy and corrupt persons and fooled them into believing that the word People in the name of People’s Labour Party means that the PLP would provide greater and better things in Government than the Labour Party did.
The country is now suffering as a result of the gullibility of those greedy and corrupt individuals in our society who expected Heaven on Earth from the hands of the PLP. The PLP has offered only Hell on Earth to the people instead.
People’s Labour Party or no People’s Labour Party, the St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party has been the greatest political party to govern the country of St. Kitts Nevis since 1952.
The St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party has excelled in the areas such as in the fields of Political Development, Constitutional Development, Financial Development, Economic Development, Agricultural Development and Social Development.
We cannot forget that it was a Governing party with the word PEOPLE in its name that raised strong objections to the liberalisation of Secondary Education, the introduction of Social Security and move to the Independence of St. Kitts and Nevis.
