  1. Who or what comes first, people or money? tonight the jump up comes first, the Covid is next; but worse yet, Monkeypox in the house. What will it take for the Authorities to wake up, and people to take attention, where a whole generation of young people are affected. Now beside your childish behavior with the silly excuse of the economy, take your pick, health/economy which one comes first? don’t ask your Government Ministers, they don’t have a clue, but you can go to the Hospitals and ask the patients, maybe they have an answer. Now, be careful with the school children – some Nut threw a Molotov Cocktail at a statue in a Church – BE CAREFUL. (teach your children how to pray/God is a Spirit/a good Spirit/I daily refer to the Lord Jesus.)

  2. Welcome to sweet st lucia when you can party freely in gros islet on a Friday night with rising cases daily cases and no hospitals as we open the doors to Monkey Pox. Our brilliant 👏 government has the perfect plan. PPF Putting Pockets First.
