  1. That is really something. To see how ALL these politicians pushing for carnival whilst people are dying. Cmo on lock!!! When chastanet was in charge she on my TV every night. Politics is something else.

  2. How would it feel to be a old lady 75 dying I. A hospital bed from covid 19, all because your grandson came home from one of these carnival shows with covid? Ernest Hillaire, Alva Baptist and Co will pay for their callous behavior and non carish attitude to older folks. People are dying from covid, infection rates are way up, and you all are still pushing for carnival? Where’s Musa? Where’s the cmo? Merle Clarke took moomoo tablets after the leakage of this missive.
