  1. Are you SLP leaders Mad? Immoral? Obtuse? Simply inept? So self absorbed you cannot see the forest for the trees? Unwilling to clean your own stables? So lazy you do not want to work hard? Happy to just go from your air conditioned home to chauffeur driven cars to plush office to have peoole fawn over you, while doing no work?

    Your attempt to deflect fron the required solutions by constantly pointing at the public to handle the crime situation is pathetic. How in hell can joe public do anything about the proliferation of high powered guns in the island? All of us are now frightened about the wild west attitude out there. The reports now coming in are staggeringly scary. Are the reports about the security forces and public servants collusion with the gun runners correct? Are there govt ministers with nefarious pasts connected to the criminality? We cannot now even go to some parts of this country in fear of our lives- not even Reduit at nights. Report things to the police – so that it is passed on and we get targeted? You all are disgustingly incapable of leadership!

    There is only one solution. Things are so far gone that a drastic, unprecedented attack on criminal activity has to take place. There has to be a state of emergency declared. Massive well positioned External forces and resources brought in and utilized efficiently and with cold and calculated manner, within the law. The rot is too deep to think that local resources will be effective. These are totally compromised.
    But this will never happen because you SLP incompetents are lost in the dark with no mindset or skillsets to deal with this problem.
    I greatly fear that sometime shortly an event will happen that will completely compromise our economy, particularly tourism and then it will be too late for solutions.

  2. The majority of you’ll commenting especially in the wake of violence in st lucia r just a set of morons pouring more fuel on what’s happening as govt trying their best to deal with the influx of homicides take place on a daily basics. Crime is everyone business. STOP YOU’LL BULLSHIT. When LUCIA goes down, ALL LUCIANS SUFFERING


  4. Emma You can do yourself and a lot of us a favour by resigning then
    ask your Boss, the Rep for Castries ctr to go down to Soufriere to cool the boys
    with this killing business. You and him with with all the top Reps signed to sell
    our prized patrimony, Castries & Soufriere Harbour one shot, in one short meeting without consulting anyone like it doesn’t affect anyone else, you were there, you sold out like you are doing right now – in a place where I spent much of my youth (I’m deeply hurt) I’ll never see the lovely PITONS anymore.
    Phillip arrived in a job too big for his experience/his Deputy is green with envy/the Baron wish he had the job, but, you can say that again. Father God we need you right Now.
