We also extend our sympathies to the staff of the British High Commission here in Saint Lucia and to our friends in the United Kingdom. Our thoughts are with you at this time.”

While condemning the attack the Prime Minister also expressed solidarity in the fight against acts of terror. Said the Prime Minister: “We stand with Britain at this time and condemn this act and all acts of terror.”

    Your people killing each other everyday and Britain you feeling pain for.

    The same Britain you can technically say have a major role to play in the attacks being mounted against them.

    Here’s one of you favourite words “Projection” – at this rate St Lucia is projected to have 60 (Unsolved) homicides in 2017.

    Go and deal with that quick!

    I agree Anon1

    Ensure that your own is taken care of first! Why Britain not standing with us with the record crime rate we are seeing? Just sying
