Peter Binose: When talking of Argyle, our greatest fear is La Soufriere Volcano

By Peter Binose

Our greatest fear is La Soufriere Volcano, and even so, we just go about our business as usual, like … it doesn’t even exist.”

The Unity Labour Party, or/and the government, or/and the comrade, or/and the family dynasty employ a man to trawl the internet looking for comments about any of the foregoing names or entities. If those comments are damaging to the foregoing names or entities, even if true, this man will either deny or attempt to make wrong appear right. He is a propagandist of the worst kind telling lies and fabricating stories, part of his trade. Doing and saying anything in an attempt to protect those afore mentioned who may be exposed to the hurtful truth. He uses the alias Vinciman.

Vinciman is an intelligent person, some believe he is the prime ministers press secretary, others believe he is the prime minister himself or some other member of the family dynasty.

He at least is achieving confusion of the minds of ULP and comrade supporters, particularly the ignorant and bigoted among them, which are the majority.

Vinciman knows everything that the government is doing and what is has previously done, he is well informed with first hand inside information. Many of his comments have demonstrated how close he is to the regime by his obvious excellent inside knowledge which he imparts.

But even the best of propagandists make mistakes from time to time. Vinciman made a grave mistake when making comments on this story-

  • when he said “Our greatest fear is La Soufriere Volcano, and even so, we just go about our business as usual, like … it doesn’t even exist.”

[I recommend you read the same article on this media]

You will notice that Vinciman used the royal “we” when making that statement, meaning not he, but the regime, the comrade.

I believe that what he said was actually relayed to him by comrade Ralph Gonsalves, designer and inventor of the Argyle airport re-election political propaganda machine.

We now know the greatest fear of Ralph Gonsalves is La Soufriere Volcano erupting before Argyle officially opens. Because if that happened that would definitely be the end of the Argyle airport project, no airline would ever fly in there after that. There is definitely the possibility that it will erupt in the future, perhaps even some time soon.

At the time that Vinciman wrote that I wrote the following reply “I am glad you mentioned La Soufriere Volcano and being worried about it erupting, so you should be. Because it’s very much a live volcano and according to records is overdue to erupt. If that happens all aircraft sitting at the airport will be lost because the hot ash will destroy them. They will end up as scrap metal. They certainly will not be able to fly in the ash cloud and the airport is within an area where hot rocks will rain down. Argyle may become an insurance nightmare for resident and visiting aircraft, with runway subsidence more than a possibility, huge winds when not expected and now a live volcano to take into account.”

The fact is La Soufriere Volcano is an active volcano, it last erupted in 1979 and there is always steam and gasses rising from it, although it is currently resting. Looking at the record of La Soufriere’s past eruptions and the intervals between them, an eruption is now long overdue. So it’s not ‘if’ but when, and the regime knows that and that is what has frightened them. And as I previously said, “so it should”.

Argyle is within an area which has previously been devastated by the volcano’s erupting forces. Rocks, volcanic debris and copious amounts of ash have fallen at Argyle each time Soufriere has erupted. So much so it even blocked all the streams and rivers with ash at Argyle.

Argyle Airport would be put out of operation instantly by hurtled volcanic rocks and ash spewed from the volcano. The airborne ash would stop aircraft from taking off or landing, even overflying, and rocks and ash falling on the runway would ensure that it was totally unusable. Aircraft on the ground would not be able to take off and would become piles of scrap as the corrosive ash attacks engines, operational parts and fuselage alike. There is also a great possibility of the parked aircraft being struck by the spewed rocks and debris.

Is that a risk international airlines should take? I would say not, but the problem is until Vinciman exposed the government fears of eruption it has not been voiced by any writer before. No one even thought of that possibility of events, except that is the comrade.

So now we know, and thinking about it I hope the airlines now pick up on this very serious matter, a further safety risk to passengers and aircraft.

Thank you Vinciman for your blunder “Our greatest fear is La Soufriere Volcano, and even so, we just go about our business as usual, like … it doesn’t even exist.”
