  1. Bio what? Bio who? With so many ignoramuses in the SLP from head to toe, you talking about technology? For Saint Lucia, that is putting the cart before the horse. Look at the PM. Does that Castro copy-kat know just about anything about technology? They don't teach that in law school. Except for his time in SVG, he was raised on a plantation. So you are calling an agricultural hoe, a shovel, and a cutlass technology? You killing me! Woye! You want to bet that most of these SLP idiot clowning MPs can hardly use a computer? Listen to them on the market steps. Do they sound like they are in the 21st century?
