The headquarters for hard-hitting discussion on issues and sharing of up-to-date information deemed to be relevant to Choiseul/Saltibus and the St. Lucian diaspora generally. The mainstream news media have not always lived up to our expectations in publishing our views or news and information about us. The POWERHOUSE attempts to fill that gap. We encourage everyone, everywhere to participate by sharing news, views, ideas and opinions about any topic of relevance.
THE POWERHOUSE IS GOING PLACES!
The Choiseul PowerHouse is “powering ahead” in Cyberspace with the speed of light. Some claim we are hard-hitting and controversial; some claim we are intellectual and academic! Some even claim we are political! Everybody is right! We are all of those things! We have a diverse global audience and it is our pleasure to stimulate your intellectual taste buds and we make no apologies for that. The bottomline is we are independent and have no affinity to any organisation: political or otherwise! We will continue to publish our "power articles"
We wish to extend special thanks to followers for their support. We also encourage you to post your comments and feedback on the Blog using the comments link following the Articles.
Welcome to the POWERHOUSE family blog!

SOUFRIERE AND SLP: MAN AND WIFE
The Chairman (Conrad Theodore who was returned to office unopposed) delivered an impressive report. Among other things, he encouraged Parliamentary Representatives to continue to be an integral part of their constituencies, “Too often district reps move away from the constituency group that helped to elect them”. He implored Parliamentary Representatives to remain loyal to the cause of their constituents.
Guest Speaker Sam Augier was in fine form. He started his presentation with a dissection of the November 28 General Elections and argued that it was the most complex, the most difficult and most brutal campaign he’d ever fought in the history of our electoral politics; but he said it was also the most rewarding. He paid tribute to the people of Soufriere for “staying the course” despite "Ti Pwen Tout's" multimillion-dollar campaign to buy their votes. He added the victory was impressive but instructive!
Sam went on to proffer advice for the way forward: (1) continuous registration of voters, (2) dynamic constituency structure and organisation, (3) maintenance of a strong, sustainable “symbiotic relationship” between gov’t and party, (4) thorough screening of candidates to ensure there is a level of “RED” in their DNA and that they are in the struggle for the long haul! Sam boldly asserted: “They (candidates) must have ‘balls’ and must be committed to their constituents. In the Labour Party, we want loyalty and allegiance - not political opportunism!”
Sam concluded his presentation by affirming that Soufriere was no longer a swing or battleground state - but Soufriere was now married to Labour and ended with the dramatic pronouncement: “I now declare Soufriere and Labour man and wife”.
Dalson was next. He presented an impressive slideshow highlighting an array of sterling achievements in the Soufriere/Fond St. Jacques constituency. He was (by and large) cerebral in his discourse, exhorting his prodigal supporters who went astray for a few dollars to "come back home!".
