  1. Long live the memory of Brother George! A true and patriotic son of St. Lucia.

  2. One of St Lucias' GENUINE politicians.

    Such a shame about these idiots (Red and Yellow) we now have a politicians, they're mainly see their positions as income.

    Real genuine politicians careless about the salary and perks which accompany the position. They change for their people.
