How sick is Ralph Gonsalves?

Dr Ralph Gonsalves

Vinci Kallaloo joins with all Vincentians to wish Dr Ralph Gonsalves a speedy recovery. We urge him to get some rest and re-energize himself to continue the work for which the people have chosen him. We are aware that he is a very hard worker with a tendency to over-exert himself. While that is admirable, the body can only take so much. We therefore join in the call for our esteemed prime minister to take it easy and please follow his doctor’s orders.

Even as we wish the prime minister a speedy recovery, we must also express our grave concern about the nature of his health issues. At first, Vincentians were told that the PM was tired and perhaps had succumbed to severe exhaustion. This necessitated some rest in accordance with his doctor’s advice. So, the PM remained in a hotel in Barbados taking some much-needed rest. Then, we were told that he was hospitalized for the treatment of an abscess and a skin infection.

What really is the situation? How sick is Dr Gonsalves? What is the true nature of the health problems with which he is afflicted? What underlying condition, if any, could have given rise to a “skin infection” and an “abscess”. Are Vincentians being told the full story?

Already, there are some rumours emerging from the medical community regarding the true state of the prime minister’s health. We will not repeat these rumours here. There is need for further investigation. Suffice it to say, should these rumours prove to be correct, the social and political consequences for this country could be quite devastating.

In the meantime, we wish  Dr Gonsalves well. We hope that he enjoys his rest and get back to good health soon.

  1. Some recent comments and decisions seem to call into question whether or not he is not pre-ceding the supposed ‘internet crazies’. For sure, some body in Vincyland seems to be mad. Somebody UP IN “whitehall” seems quite mad.

    LIAT business NOT intended to make a profit.

    DEAD-BEAT borrower virtually PUTTING A GUN to the collective head of the NATIONAL INSURANCE SCHEME ( NIS) and DEMANDING and MANDATING that the NIS BE FORCED TO LEND HIM EVEN MORE MILLIONS – – – even more than the MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT HIS BANKRUPT ADMINISTRATION HAS FAILED TO REPAY THE VERY SAME NIS.

    ANYBODY WHO DISAGREE with this avowed MARXIST-LENINIST [aka COMMUNIST] PROPONENT is nothing but “wutliss dirty dawgs,” “NDP dogs”, and “Internet Crazies”.

    I know, and proclaim, near on a week before the event, THAT IF I ATTEND THE FUNERAL OF MY NEMESIS AND MOST VOCAL POLITICAL AND RADIO TALK-SHOW CRITIC that there will be a great disturbance ESPECIALLY BY HIS HOMETOWN SUPPORTERS AND NATIONAL RADIO LISTENERS AND CONSTITUENCY, and so I will NOT be going — YET I GO NEVERTHELESS in order to maximize FAST-FADING POLITICAL SUPPORT by communistically PROVOKING THE WELL-ANTICIPATED DISTURBANCE AND DISRUPTION OF THE MAN’S FUNERAL.

    Well, you got more than you gave.

    And, the hoped-for political resurgence HAS NOT IN ANY WAY MATERIALIZED.

    A FAILED COMMUNISTIC GAMBIT.

    NO MATTER the political strong-arming and persecution of the church.

    Somebody “up dey” IN THE POLITICAL DIRECTORATE seems to be totally mad.

    WE should properly site the mad-house at Mangrove.

    Erika, you are such a fraud! You aren’t wishing him well! Luckily, the Comrade is well and will be around for a damn long time! You could go screw yourself with your bullshit!

    We all wish him a speedy recovery. But we would all like to know, what is the true nature of his health. I guess the Anesia Baptiste fiasco has overshadowed this important piece of news.

      The Anesia Baptiste issue overshadow other thing too. Like the Millennium Bank man being arrested in the US and threatening to spill the beans re his Vincy connection.
