SLP TARGETS TEEN! If St. Lucia vote UWP or SLP this time I personally moving to Cuba . . . I rather live with a future than live in the past . . . we Lucians have to stop the political vampires or we will never see the light. Forward ever.
--- Jackson Price Kenny Dumbtony’s arrival into the leadership of St. Lucia in 1997 was the birth of the death of St. Lucia. A big red tick just sucking the life blood out of the island. Now, St. Lucia is on her death bed and countless red ticks are consuming and getting fat while the average St. Lucian is seeing a misery that you would find in Haiti. At least we both speak French creole.
-- Doubting Thomas Lucians are so full of shit, Rick. I wonder why they don’t from constipation. I watch all your shows and I see nothing wrong with what the young man said. I too am a youth and yes I too have thought of certain thing similar. We are frustrated. We see no way forward for us in this country. We are sick of the politicians and their hacks. The SLP has an army of people on the ground ready to attack. People are scared of speaking out because of those hacks. We are threatened into silence. Yes hacks. We are FRUSTRATED and we blame the SLP for our present situation. Kenny lied to us. Yes he did. He tricked us into voting for him. But, fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you. Kenny will not fool me a third time.
---- I am Lucian
PRICEY BRIDGE OPENING Anytime construction and governments of any country are involved, corruption in the guise of cost over-runs are a byproduct. St. Lucia is enslaved to an economic model which is killing business growth. You can’t keep borrowing and just think taxation will take care of your debt; the very tax brings despair and hopelessness. Kenny is in the process of creating a plantation with NICE roads and bridges. What next? The air port?
--- Doubting Thomas The little extra cost must be VAT induced. Must be a special kind of bridge, it can swim when the river rises.
--- Doubting Thomas It is telling, that in St. Lucia success is defined as a bridge built with borrowed foreign money, at greater expense than planned and opened with a lavish ceremony. It’s just basic infrastructure that most countries would just complete as a matter of course. With so many issues to deal with and so many people suffering it really does look a class apart.
--- baz PETITION TO SAVE TROUYA BEACH SUBMITTED I hate to say it, but successive Governments have pushed St. Lucians to the brink for mere pittance from foreigners and this even more bankrupt Government is no different if not worse. Unless we take stock now we will one day wake up and find everything we value in the hands of foreigners and Lucians going to whatever lengths necessary to reclaim their heritage. Even violence and bloodletting. Our politicians are doing to us what the British and colonial powers did to African nations which see the kinds of events which transpire in Zimbabwe today in a misguided attempt to right the wrongs of the past. It is when these places start to go up in flames and Lucians stricken by poverty begin to behave like the people in the streets of Haiti, and these businesses start to require heavy military like security (like I see all over certain Latin American countries) to guard their turf, that our politicians will learn. Or when arnachy begins to transform this once peaceful tranquil paradise into a war zone and our loving people take up arms against their own government, and civil strife and disobedience becomes the order of the day, that the gargoyles and parasites which see no evil with the treachery of elected officials will be satisfied to say enough is enough and pull support from these jackals we are forced to elect election after election. I may sound harsh and crude if not insane, but the stage is being set for future homegrown acts of terrorism in the name of freedom. Make no joke, when hungry bellies and abused people see the the only spoils to be enjoyed are but by a privileged few and they know the spoils were stolen from them and their forebears, it makes for a dangerous concoction of deadly revolt. History is replete with it; modern society is filled with the results of the now generation fighting back and ravaging their own countries to roll back what took many generations to bring to fruition. Is this what we want? No!!!. So it is time to tell the corrupt politicians Stop!!!!
--- John Joseph Rick that beach have a long history - 45 years ago my dad almost got shot when he broke down a gate the then owners of the surrounding land put to keep the locals out. We selling all our beach property to hotels for quick cash when we can make more if all hotels were at least 1/4mile from so called queens’ chain. We destroying the very thing that attracts rich environmentally conscious tourists. Well done Compton, well done King, well done Kenny . . . tick tock
--- Jackson price Kenny wants a hotel on every beach; he is selling St. Lucia at jammet prices and we are talking jammet specials. The only place all the neg will be able to swim is in the river mouths.
