  1. its high time the minister of tourism push in cabinet for carnival to be made public holidays

  2. Has it not occurred to a people that they have one man – the Minister of Tourism – who have nothing to offer to them, but that ‘Ungodly, ugly and noisy’ thing that they call, Carnival. A people Spiritually blind, cannot see that the Lord God is grieved that they take more pleasure in the things of the flesh rather than that of His Holy Spirit.
    It is sad that the Preachers of today do fail to do that which is absolutely necessary at a time such as this. It is well known that we are living in the last days, the devil is busy looking for those he can devour, and there are many of those who take pleasure in the things of the flesh, the loud music, vulgar dancing, drinking and bad behavior. Do not think that the Lord is delayed in His promise that He will return, as it is written ‘ He will come like a thief in the night’ so be sober and vigilant and be prepared. St. Lucia as is, is in a lot of trouble; I do not know what the Lord is planning for this sinful Nation that kills each other for the things of pleasure, the things for just a time. [worship the Lord while there is time]

  3. Why do they behave so vulgarly? Hardly a tourist attraction except those of a like mind, and who wants them here?!

  4. The traffic management this year is SHIT! Tell me how you are supposed to pick up your à reveller at Mega J when Vigie roundabout, union roundabout and marisule are ALL BLOCKED at 8.15 p.m.
