GIVE VIEUX FORT A CHANCE

The Star (St. Lucia) - - BOOK REVIEW -

All good and said Josey. First of all the Govern­ment of St Lu­cia needs to out­right own the land the air­port sits on. It’s like leas­ing a car from the bank and then go­ing out and buy­ing fancy rims for it. Why has no sit­ting prime min­is­ter ever sought to ratify that treaty with the United States? How much is that stipend worth? I have al­ways been an ad­vo­cate of ces­sion; Ge­orge Od­lum would have had my back on this. For too long Vieux Fort and its as­sets have kept the glit­ter of the north shin­ing so I am not against de­vel­op­ment. Out of ev­ery dol­lar that comes from Vieux Fort, 75 per­cent goes to fund­ing the north of the is­land; this needs to change. This is one time I am not against the busi­ness­man. - King Majesty
