  1. When I heard this,I fell at his feet as though dead . Then he place his right hand on me,and said :”Do not be afraid .I am the First and the Last .I am the Living One ;I was dead,and behold
    I am alive for ever !(And hold the keys of death and hades
    “Write, therefore, what you have seen,
    what is now and what will take place later”.

  2. @ ANt, you are definitely bitter and hypocritical . This administration inherited a deplorable economic management situation in the midst of a covid pandemic. The former administration did practically nothing to address the escalation of violent crimes. This is time for national unity and nation building from the burden of enormous debt and fiscal mismanagement.

  3. I believe in standing up for what is right. I don’t think covid cares with your political affiliation. It’s 2022 and we need to wake up and take precautionary measures to protect yourself. Forget about red or yellow, it’s about life on the line if we don’t change from our ignorance. We need to grow up, elevate our minds and act responsible. I’m doing my part in protecting myself and my children and I hope others do the same. People this virus kills, stop the foolishness and unite to save lives.

  4. So if you state the obvious about this incompetent, devious, clueless administration you are ‘bitter’.
    Mention the incompetent, immoral makeup of Cabinet- you are bitter.
    Mention the inaction and failure to deal with civid- you are bitter.
    Mention reneging on pre election promises – you are bitter. Where de $1,500 for three months. Where de tax breaks.
    Mention instances of illegality- you bitter.
    Mention no economic plans going forward – you bitter.
    Mention the escalating crime rate – yu bitter.
    Mention no more civil agitation from the various Middke class actors who have hypcritically gone quiet – yu bitter.
    I would rather be bitter than support these clowns .

  5. Shut you’ll ass on here. When you stupid St. Lucians are put in quarantine you’ll give the staff and nurses a hell of a time. Serves you’ll right, let yall stay home and feel the full force of COVID. Well yall parade the streets infecting those yall come into contact with

  6. They accused Allan Chastanet of using the hotels for isolation because his friends owned the hotels. So because you have no friends with hotels you are not doing the right thing? Go back to the same damn friends of Chastanet to get the sick people isolated. People are dying and you guys still playing politics in government.

  7. 24 of 412 (known) cases in hospital. 3 people near life expectancy range passed away. Man the sky is falling.
