  1. Too much crookedness at the top!!! Hill-air is the worse of the lot. He and his ‘man’ Fagdius put everybody’s life at risk for them to make $$$. May I help myself? Got a 3 day visa and look show. If you didn’t launder $$ you would not have your visa taken. Sad that we have all these crooks causing us pain and anguish.

  2. @Brandon Forde; are we saying that some high level Cabinet members have put the ‘shut up sign’ on the top level Medical staff? that would not surprise me, knowing the small Island mindedness we got right now. BE VERY CAREFUL, THERE IS A SHORTAGE OF MEDICAL STAFF OF ALL LEVELS IN NORTH AMERICA. We can see a stampede very soon, not only in St. Lucia, but throughout the Caribbean; no one can compete with the salaries being paid up here. Sorry to say, the attraction that once was, for a qualified person to return home, is no longer. Too much crime, Opportunities for children leaving school etc etc. think about it; respect for CMO and all Med staff should be paramount.(Blessed Lord, Bless St.Lici)

  3. Where’s the cmo? Hillaire says she needs to shut up and boom!! Where’s Merle Clarke? She sent out that letter and received a call from Claudius crooked teef and boom!!! Is St. Lucia a real place?

  4. Chas what’s about the 7.3 million dollars you gave to your friend for the vaccine? How soon will you repay it?

  5. Is that all after the Bacanal, I would hope this is it, but our people just wouldn’t listen after all the lecture. There is a religious sect on the Island who preaches no vaccination what so ever. What can anyone do with such a mindset, its their belief; may the good lord help them.
