I am ready to debate Douglas says Harris

 

Political Leader of the People’s Labour Party, PLP, Dr. Timothy Harris is intimating that no one should give too much credence to recent remarks of Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas, who says all is well in St. Kitts and Nevis. Harris attacked Douglas on his credibility, reminding the public of what a High Court judge once said that the Prime Minister is a stranger to the truth.

 

Harris has asked, “For how can all be well, when we have suffered four (4) consecutive years of negative growth? How can all be well when we have one of the highest indebtedness in the world?”

 

Last week Wednesday 12 March, while giving a radio interview in St. Vincent, Dr. Harris said he was ready to debate anyone on the true state of the economy and that Dr. Douglas was not giving an accurate reflection of the socio economic realities of St. Kitts and Nevis.

 

 

Harris also questioned, “How can all be well when on a per capita basis we ranked consistently among the ten (10) worst countries in homicides? How can all be well when we have an unemployment rate of 25(%) percent and a poverty rate of nearly 33(%) percent? How can all be well when one of our premier high schools had to suspend classes because Labs were contaminated?”

 

In a scathing attack on his political rival, Harris said the Prime Minister “is living in a convenient world with Lex Consulting and its phenomenal multi-million dollar transactions while the poor could not pay their electricity bills, cable bills, water, medicines and mortgages.”

 

To further illustrate his point Dr. Harris also made mention of the medical facilities in the country, asking, “How can all be well when our main hospital Joseph N France (J.N.F) has deteriorated in its delivery of health care to such an extent that patients have to send out of the hospital to buy medication for their treatment because none is available in our hospital?”

 

He also pointed out that a number of businesses in the country are closing.

 

Dr. Harris said he was prepared to debate anyone on the state of the economy and declared “None can gainsay that our economy is under performing!”
