  1. Take out the 555 part and ask RF. He is well aquatinted with the criminals on island that’s why the impact report is jumping from limb to limb. Soon it will become public information because it will be declassified. On the other hand they maybe trying to slip out/in so pages.

  2. Since 1997, our country has faced serious challenges under the SLP leadership. In 1996, the homicide rate was just around 8 per year, but by 2002, it had surged to 40 per year, a staggering 400% increase. The Debt to GDP Ratio also skyrocketed during this time, with little benefit to the country. The SLP government has been in power for 4 out of the last 6 terms and shares responsibility for these issues due to their failed policies. You can verify these facts with a quick online search for “macrotrends Saint Lucia murder rate chart.” It’s time to get informed and take action. Let’s rally and urge our government representatives to do better, embracing proven strategies that can steer us toward a brighter future.

  3. Oh Really, you are stoll living in the dark ages

  4. Re Article/ Really.. Please stop blaming the Government’s due to the infestation to criminal activities in St Lucia and the world..
    We have simply run-out of disposable income and we must address our current situation Asap..
    We must address our current slave wages system and implement a fair living minimum wage system not less than $10+ per hour based on hours worked Systems and collect applicable taxes and create employment and we will all win.
    I’m fed up with the lack of leadership skills in St Lucia… They are too busy Blaming the other one..
    Stand up and lead our island to prosperity and not Mayhem..
    I endorse my thoughts and observations..
