  1. Are you for real. Are we so blinded by this politics drama? I don’t care about uwp or slp what I care about are the choices made by the ones who are currently serving us. We need to stop defending parties when they do wrong. Wrong is wrong even though it’s your party in power or the next party. I believe at this point we need to be responsible for ourselves and do the best we can. I see so much hate in our people over this politics.

  2. wow beautiful beautiful all of you that rather a FETE than the safety of your lives carry on smartly. Whose ready for carnival and Gros Islet street friday jam part two!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! say yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  3. Its only when one of the ministers get the worst strain of covid, that is when they will realize how serious it is. Philip Pierre, you need to be more innovative and proactive. Carnival will not solve the economic crisis here, you must think outside the box. Ask for professional advice. You are pulling this country down the drain. Why dont you fix the hospital for the people in the south.

  4. The only person that can heal Covid is the mighty god. He can stretch his hands upon our land and eradicate Covid he he so desire. The Bible teaches us how he healed any that we’re sick how he raised Lazarus from death. He can do it for us if he so desire but our mighty god will allow us to pay for our sins. We are doing everything contrary to what he asked us to. Our leaders are dishonest, selfish, greedy etc. we preaching one thing and doing something else. Carnival is part of the bacanal the Bible spoke of. We are living a life where money is what matters. The Bible had taught us that if God can take care of the birds who are we that he cannot take care of and that we should trust him to take care of the morrow. Men will be pleasure of money and material things rather than him so let’s rethink reanalyse ourselves and turn to god.,develop a conscience and do what’s good. When we learn to do that we will see gods hands upon our land the. We will not have to worry about tomorrow. We are to much about making money and ourselves to build huge houses , buy expensive vehicles instead of thinking about the poor man or woman who cannot buy a meal for today far less tomorrow. Wr are to focus on punishing another because he or she did not like what we did and comment about it. We are to hasty Tobin e the story about another because they do t like the person. Carnival and the bscanals in the name of money will be our destruction. Peace and love
