  1. 13 effing years people. 13 years and 3 administration changes. Wow! Just wow! Incompetence beyond imagining.

  2. P.M. stop embarrassing yourself, this structure is not a hospital, neither was it built as such, it never did neither can it function as a hospital in todays’ world. It was a Clinic from the beginning and at best, its still a glorified Clinic; good try but no Cigars; you will be getting the same response from me as long as you as M.P. insist in bending backward to Some haters in the Cabinet N.B. King Cobra & the drug Baron. The people in the Southern Sector, Laborie, V/F North and VF South deserve better i.e. a modern Hospital; tell the Baron and Heliar to stop finding a buyer for the standing Structure: build the New Hospital. Lord help St.Lucia. Amen.

  3. I used to think that the SLP government under PJP would have been different from the UWP, but I have learnt that they are all the same, squandering the state’s money right under out watchful eyes.

    Take St Jude Hospital project for example and the decision to continue with a rundown and dilapidated structure rather than continue with the new and better one. But no! Kickbacks won’t be received because a contract was already awarded to another company for the new building. So they move to the run down structure and starts off by awarding one of their cronies a five million dollar contract to clean and fence. Something that could have been EASILY done for under $2M based on what is being paid to the sub contractors. And guess what – we the masses will have to bear that cost right to the clutches IMF if that trend were to continue. But not for the crooks – the Excess 3M is shared amongst themselves – corruption in plain sight. So PJP, stuff your progress report – we all under what corruption is when we see it. And the St. Jude reconstruction project epitomizes that.

  4. Selling the freedom of our ports for a mere 47 million and squandering all this money to simply clean and fence up? At this rate the cost and spending has only just began, dont forget every building st.lucia is mold and mildew problems when u see that rotten concrete building paint start peeling n turning black u will see mold galore zobie vole gogorment.
