      Is there a storm here now? No. You just don’t want to work.

      If it was carnival time no one would take it on.

    What is this new government trying to achieve??? Hardship is already here, over 2000 people lost their jobs, and more to go. Businesses and government run offices have closed down. Is this what u r referring to as achievement??? What I see is bad judgement, and no consideration for the citizenry in this lil Helen of the West – Saint Lucia. The IMF will be here soon. At this time the only government radio station that the nation would be having round the clock weather update was closed down smh
