    What a joke! This Is why St Lucia will always go backward.
    No one has yet been held accountable for the loss of St Lucia’s priceless historical memorabilia in that fire.
    We have a history of fires destroying our patrimony yet no adequate precautions were taken to safeguard our heritage at the FRC.
    All the ‘educated elites have been covering each other for this tragic failure.
    And unfortunately this is happening all over St Lucia where our educated elites give no value for money and we all give them a pass.
    I ask again. Who was responsible for the lack of planning and management and the loss of our patrimony?
    When will there be a forensic audit of this travesty and accountability to be had?
    What was actually lost in the fire?
    When will this cover up stop!
    Millions up in flames and the so called ‘elites just keep quiet
