The serious and concerned nationals of St.Kitts have been pleading with the Team Unity Government not to carry out its risky, dangerous and foolhardy plans to build the new Basseterre High School on the Basseterre Valley Aquifer.
Team Unity is well-known for its habits of putting into effect the most stupid, foolish and dangerous and inappropriate programmes and policies. So the good people of St.Kitts are requesting the Team Unity Government not to build the new Basseterre High School in the area that has been proposed.
I would suggest that in all decency if the Team Unity members want to proceed with their piece of recklessness then they should lay down a guarantee that if the Basseterre Valley Aquifer should become contaminated then each and every member of Team Unity would hold himself responsible for the damage and the repair of the damage.
Team Unity should not be allowed to damage to our Aquifer and get away with it.
Team Unity has been advised time and time again not to build the proposed new Basseterre High School on the Basseterre Aquifer.
Also, Team Unity has been advised time and time again that there is nothing seriously wrong with the old Basseterre High School on Victoria Road and that all that the school requires to make it useable is a good scrubbing and hosing down with a potent antiseptic or antibiotic.
It is safer and cheaper to go back to the old Basseterre High School on Victoria Road than build a new High School at enormous expense on the Basseterre Aquifer and contaminate that aquifer. The Team Unity should govern the country in a responsible and respectable manner and not to play “snakes & ladders” with people’s lives and well-being.
St.Kitts people have never had to run out of St.Kitts and Nevis and go to another island for safety. The people of Montserrat have had to run away because of the danger of the earthquake and volcano. It seems that the Team Unity Government wants to run St.Kitts people out of St.Kitts to avoid the risk of drinking contaminated water.
With all that has been said of Dr. Denzil Douglas, no one can ever say that he has ever exposed his people to the risk of drinking contaminated water. Dr. Douglas tended to his people, a fine example similar to that of a good shepherd to his sheep while we have Dr. Harris on the flip side who is willing and ready to expose his flock to the risk of drinking contaminated water.
Our first National Hero His Excellency Sir Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw and the late great water engineer Stanley Sebastian made provision for Basseterre people to drink nothing but the purest and best water. Here, we have another national leader who is prepared to give his people contaminated water to drink.
Bradshaw, our first and greatest National Hero, gave his people LIVING WATER to drink. But our current National Leader is prepared to provide WATER OF DEATH for our people to drink.
The choice is easy. The greedy and selfish saboteurs who all planned the sabotage of the Douglas Labour Government have all been paid off. There is no danger in going back to the use of the old Basseterre High School. Our National Leader should redeem himself and go back to the use of the Basseterre High School on Victoria Road.
The Team Unity Government has been on a long search now to find a suitable piece of land on which to build the proposed new, state-of-the-art High School. So far, the Government has been unsuccessful. This ought to suggest something to the Government that our Father in heaven does not at this stage want the High School at Victoria Road to be removed to any other location.
Please Mr. National Leader, take the hint and return to the seeing the High School restructuring on Victoria Road as an option for further use of an institution of secondary teaching and learning.
