Opposition MP says “People Want To Mash Up The Place”

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): A leading politician is suggesting that some opposition supporters fed up with the delay in the hearing of a motion of no confidence, are advocating the use of violence to resolve the federation’s political crisis. Speaking on WINN FM’s Breakfast Show on Thursday, PAM’s Eugene Hamilton said he was aware of the impatience of some people who are pushing for more decisive action to resolve the impasse.

Hamilton confirmed being told so, while distancing himself from the use of violence to deal with the no confidence stalemate matter. “People want to mash up the place – those who speak to me want to mash up the place,” Hamilton told WINN FM’s Clive Bacchus. The PAM official had earlier admitted that he shared the frustration being expressed about the lack of attention being given in parliament to the motion of no confidence in the Denzil Douglas administration.

He said he could understand the pro-violence rhetoric fueled by the motion stalemate. Hamilton said his own reluctance to embrace violence in the current crisis was “because of the scars of 1993” when there was political unrest that turned violent.

Prime Minister Denzil Douglas was at the time the leader of the opposition, and many accuse him of have orchestrated the violence, an allegation his Labour Party denies. “I am not so sure how much more tolerant other persons will be,” Peoples Action Movement deputy leader Hamilton said, while referring his own professed anti-violence stand in the current impasse. He also chided civil society and the private sector for not doing enough to help resolve the political crisis.

People, please have patience. In time justice will roll down like water. It seemed like apartheid was not going to end, but it finally came crashing down. Justice may be delayed, but it will not be denied. As the song says Hold On Just a Little Bit Longer. The longer the Prime Minister takes to call elections, the more obvious the Full Incompetence looks. Be careful of a lot of froth and very little morby. Be calm, it will not be long before the Federation stop doing the DCH. Some people are devoid of a conscience.

Sounds like a subliminal invitation for violence. What are the Courts for?
