    Crime has escalated since Evil Chastanet got elected by the poor black St. Lucians, with ching ching en posh, along with their Bye Bye Kenny chants. But now it’s getting worst since the firing of all NICE workers. Today marks day-1. And the tourists are now victims of Evil Chastanet’s anti St. Lucian policies.
    Evil Chastanet, we will excuse your mental maladies if you resign. Heck, we will even forget you aren’t St. Lucian.
    Just step down and resign. I will personally ship all your fings for you back to your homeland, Martinique.

        Ignorant people just talking (Word deleted). Nice people spent more time on sick leave and working 10am to 1pm and getting more money than Community Health Aides and Health Center Attendants. People that works from 8am to 4.30pm. The program was not functioning on the Northern part. Talk about how the government wasted monies, on political NICE staff while permanent staff salaries are less than Nice Staff. Their uniforms were ordered from Trinidad costing Government even more money talk about that. Lucians wake up and stop playing politics.

      Sad-But-True is what you call and internet troll. His remarks are meant for you to respond the way you have. It is his aim. The only way to defeat a troll is to ignore him. They get off on your comments and smile as the number of people who reference them increases. I have witness people falling for this trap over and over again. Do not fall for it again. IGNORE HIM!

    Sad but true or what ever alias you using. So tell me it seems only poor black people votes in St. Lucia? Time and time you are suggesting the prime minister is not Lucian. Does this disqualified him for holding the office of Prime Minister? Note Sir John Compton was born in St. Vincent . I am a big supporter of free speech but inciteful, silly statements that are ambiguous or plain nonsensical doesn’t help any situation.

    Oh stop the fighting and let’s give the government a chance is it now?? It’s a pity the same curtisies were not extended to Labour while in power! Under this lot of incompetent idiots crime has surged despite the Pee M bragging how he had the formula to combat crime during the election campaign! However well done to the City police for getting another piece of scum off the streets temporarily!!

    Oh my goodness…. y is it that when something happens the 1st blame goes to government. I am so sick of this nonesence. Labor and UWP have nothing to do with the crime idiot. Ppl need to start raising their children properly and start taking responsibility for their action. Crime happens despite who is in power. We are all entitled to our opinion but does the opinion have to be so ignorant and bias?

    Sad but true I agree with u . It’s high time Lucians respect people’s opinion. Give them things to talk about you. Good job city police. Majority of those writing emphasizing on what sad but true is writing and not the actual issue. Leave the man or woman alone. Let him or her vent. Focus on the issue and not sad but true.

    Now if only it were humane to chain each chain snatcher to a post, pillar or pole in the city with the sign “CHAINED FOR BEING A CHAIN SNATCHER.”

    Finally some positive news on police behavior. Good job guy’s.
    But this little nigger child needs to be dealt with harshly. Parade the little bastard around Castries with a sign hanging around his neck reading “thief”, and have his his parents follow behind him carrying a placard reading parents of de “thief”. I’ll bet that’s the last time this greedy nigger pulls that stunt.

    enough already! My business is way down. I think alot passengers are staying on board de ships. Word on Castries is getting out. Now I paying for little niggers evils.

    People like ‘sad but true’ have a internal strife of inadequacy; their only voice is to shout from behind a wall. Thing is they don’t even realise how stupid they are.

    Glad to hear the City Police being effective, we need our tourists to be unharrassed and enjoy their time to recommend our small beautiful island to all their friends and family.
