  1. This is all Kenny Anthony’s fault. If he had jus fix the roads in cul de sac and anse la for none of this would happen. They need to bring Compton back and burn all these harry potter books.

  2. We are all lawless. We expunged the criminal records of felons and give them a clean certificate of character to facilitate their entry in the USA and Canada. Those persons who were convicted for breaking the Covid 19 laws prohibiting large gathering and wearing of mask convictions were overturned because of promises made, and making the Police look stupid in the process. These actions taken by a group of incompetent persons in office have givens the criminals, vagabonds and tugs the green light and embolden them to commit murders and terrorize the citizens of this Fair Helen knowing very well that even though they are caught they are likely to go scotch free or they can obtain a clean certificate of character to get a visa to the USA or Canada. This was a wicked and spiteful act aimed at undermining one man not realizing that the entire population will suffer and are suffering as a result of irresponsible action taken by selfish people.
    by visionless people.

  3. PM focusing on special prosecutor whilst our national security is at high risk. WHERE IS THE NATIONAL SECURITY MINISTER. PM YOU HAVE FAILED ON NATIONAL SECURITY RECRUIT A NATIONAL SECURITY MINISTER NOW. WHERE ARE THE TRIED AND PROVEN EX HIGH LEVEL COPS IN YOUR CAMP…..PUT YOUR PRIDE ASIDE AND START PROTECTING US. SHOW US YOU’RE SERIOUS ABOUT PUTTING US FIRST.

  4. Meanwhile Kenny and Tony chillin in Cul de Sac- Not a Word, Not a Word. No ideas no leadership NADA. Cyah wait to hear the Mayor.

  5. Oh not V/Fort again, this place needs a good dose of deliverance prayer; but its all over the place, how can you blame the Police. Beside hotels on a Beach, its hard for investors to risk investing in an environment such as this. I am convinced that one of the answers is the Noose, sorry to say its got to be, an eye for an eye, ‘ if you kill – you hang’ that’s it: go tell your Mama.

  6. The crime situation in St.Lucia is really terrible. Our hospitals are becoming overwhelmed. Nevertheless, the Department of Nursing at SALCC is really not helping the situation. As reported the administration of that department is a main catalyst for nurse migration. Authorities please, please, please save our health care system by changing the administration of the Nursing Department at SALCC.

    • This statement regarding the administration of the School of Nursing as the “main catalyst” for nurse migration is uneducated to say the least. You need to study more about the topic before making such rash comments! Try Factors that promote nurse migration you may find some great answers there.
