  1. Joke’s on you chamber. People have no money to spend. Fuel too expensive so we using it sparingly and only for important things. Not for bon temps.

  2. Tuesday 3 January included in entertainment going until 5:00am Wednesday. That sounds ludicrous. We should be back to productive work by 7:00am that day. Too much time fete that’s why we are a non-productive nation.

  3. the Saturday half day nonsense still going on in that place? you people holding on to old ideas that are at least 50 years old.
