    • That's what I cannot understand of SLP supporters. THe people have spoken therefore you do not respect the will of the electorate and that is why your party is in the position it is currently in. We do not need your luck mister, if you are a St Lucian and want to see the country move forward bury your pride and jump aboard the train or be left behind in ignorance.

      • You have just misconstrued my statement on several fronts. I happen to be independent. I refuse to leave you in ignorance.
