  1. wow thats great news ,now those are the guys with money those saudi arabians i hope this money they donate finishes the hospital though

  2. Archieeeeeee where hart thou old boy, (in your school of thought today) damn that Pierre he is destroying this country, if it’s not the Russians he wants to bring here, now it’s the damn Arabs just now St Lucia will be ground zero for terrorist.

  3. Right connections: What can I say ? Moving on up in a seemingly right direction. I wonder what the opposition is thinking. This development is a thong in their skims. Hopes it bears fruit though.

  4. It was a Diabetes Center with Jufalli, which we never got. Hope it is not another Jufalli. What is their interest this time. SLP is good at keeping the WHOLE STORY away from the public.

  5. St.lucia just sold her soul, the Arabs are going to buy their citizenship, then they’re going to own st.lucia. Keep begging others for help, you will learn nothing in life is free.

  6. I think it’s utterly ridiculous that st.lucia sells her (soul) citizenship to the highest bidder. Their going to line the politician’s pockets with a few bills then have their way with st.lucia, makes st.lucia look like a prostitute.
