    Sad 4 But 4 True, what the hell that have to do with Chastanet? you are very very sick and you need a check up, and I mean a serious one to. This is a French national and that have nothing to do with St Lucia. One of these days you will pay for your tongue. Remember when you go about accusing people like this it normally back fire on you. Do your self a favor and stop your nasty politics.

    Sad but true it has to be a mentally demented person to accuse Chastanet for the cause of this woman jumping from the tower. This happened in Martinique (Words deleted).
