      You are so sad. To believe so much in politics. It has poisoned your heart. The wonderful thing is that, there is hope even for misguided soul like you. I hope you realize the big picture one day and release yourself from the puppet master’s web.

      True, but pedestrians also have a responsibility to ensure they cross the roads safely. Make sure it’s clear before crossing and do not estimate a vehicle’s speed

    Why do all you guys blame politics for people death. Your’ll need to check what all you saying. Not because it’s a horrible situation for the coutry, that people should believe it is evil works. Stop thinking such negative thoughts about your’ll country. We should be one nation not ten. My condolences to the family.

    I pray for the family and pray that God strengths them . Our drivers need to take precautions on the roads and reduce our speeds. We definitely need to have things in place to start charging drivers for speeding .

    Sad but True, I am convinced that you are really a UWP supporter, planted to make Labour Party supporters seen vile and insensitive. I am angry, that many times the SLP was blamed for everything, including the Morne Sion Disaster. It was painful to read the comments and some of those peopke who made these comments have been visited with tragedies, because hate begets hate. I believe as much as Chastanet is a fool, as much as we share the feeling that this land is under a spell, we should never make light of such tragedy. You remember the hoax gang rape on the square and the other hoaxes of threats on the lives of Juke Bois and Rick Wayne, these are some of the sins this country has to atone for. Stop making SLP supporters look bad and if it is not benefitting SLP and UWP is, I say that is what you are. And if you are really SLP, it is not our way (Words deleted)

      Oh he is SLP alright.
      He doesn’t realize that his constant rants actually builds more support for Chastanet.
      Let him carry on please.
