    Honestly as a St. lucian I am ashamed. Yesterday he was denigrated as toujou su, Lara, Bounty and all the degrading things as described by our Prime Minister in his book. Not fit to run a country. Today and by the same persons he qualifies four our nation’s highest award.
    Is that what we will teach the young in our country? Is that the kind of start and respect the government will give to that award.
    Is that a sincere award based on national merit or on political flip floping
