Simply beautiful . . . or paradise gone down the toilet?
St. Lucia the land of leave it where it died! By this I mean, all the old abandonded vehicle carcasses left roadside, rusting/ rotting stripped down hulks. Whereever it died it is left. Absolutely disgusting! You people are not deserving of such a beautiful place.

Oh boo hoo hoo put a sock in it Toni. Whenever we go overseas and we come back home we always like to vent about our hometown like before you left you did not or forgot it was a one horse town. Where did you go Don One Singapore ?? Well it is what it is. Number one huh? Okkkkk if they say so.

So we know all that but what about the people who consistently vote for these contemptuous people! What does that say about them especially when they come on the internet to support politicians in all their criminality – legislative or otherwise!
Rick can Kenny say and do anything in this country without your criticism? I know he fired you but it’s time you let that go before you pass.
Rick wrote: “By all I gathered from our several exchanges over the years, not all of them friendly, I daresay Francois despised his fellow politicians, their lack of character, their cowardice, their palpable hypocrisy, their Neanderthal proclivities, and their demonstrated contempt for the hands that feed them.”
Gobats Cry For Justice! I share your heartbreak, the absence, the promise, the pain. Knowing he who feels it knows ... in my short memory we in St. Lucia have suffered and criminal is the word. The lawlessness by ordinary citizens and the police - from Terry James, Yamaha, Corbeau, Paul Mathurin, Winston Brown, now Ollie, the list goes on. We need to demand more from our leaders or toof!
It is time for the talking to stop and people need to demand action from our leaders, the police and all those responsible. We need to come out and march, engage in peaceful protest, whatever it is, but we must come out. Saint Lucians let us stop all the senseless name calling and blame game and let us take back our country from lawlessness at all levels.
When I read this article and follow the comments it saddens me. Our country is in a mess, our education system, economy, industry and people! We have a prime minister who we continue to elect based on his charisma and ability to win the vote of the poor and ignorant with promises of a land of milk and honey. A prime minister whose track record is synonymous with gross mismanagement of projects, cost overruns, VAT, shady secretive foreign deals and that is his only legacy. I’m trying to be objective; Mr. Chastenet appears to be a leader with vision who can drive industry and bring new ideas and investment to St. Lucia. I believe that a strong opposition needs to be in place so as to bring constructive criticism because of Chastenet’s conflicts of interest (Hotel & Family Businesses) to set boundaries for his power. Last Thursday 20 November, you had me completely bamboozled (kerfuffled?) while watching TALK on DBS television. I couldn’t for the life of me guess who exactly you were referring to and why you showed those clips of amateur models advertising dresses for a local store, and another of a ‘culture dance’ featuring the hard banging of pelvis to pelvis and bosom to bosom.
It all came together when I read last weekend’s STAR. The attack on you by the Prime Minister’s mouthpiece, the deliberately plastered physiognomy intended to portray beauty, was shocking. But it serves you right! And you know why? The objection to the amateur models may be based on fear that somebody’s impressionable little girl may grow up and emulate the amateurish sensual simulations. One cannot be too careful in this broken and promiscuous age. No mother wants her daughter to become pregnant at fifteen or younger, as a result of watching those stimulating TV adds.
There are laws to protect the morals of the society and to censure lewd, suggestive sexual conduct and even risqué movies and foul language. If the Prime Minister’s help can write to a private business establishment demanding that the owners take its television commercials off air because her daughter thinks they “suck,” then what next, Rick?
