      • Marlin, thank you for the advise, I will try to be more objective and positive as a none voter, but have you ever consider what a $10,000 phone bill a month is for one Government minister at the expense of Tax payers? That is one out of seventeen ministers.Do we really know what these people are actually costing the country and Tax payers per month apart from their salaries? Lets be realistic and face the realities that exist in our country we are being taken real ride. Have ever taken the time to check what percentage of your salary goes towards taxes? Maybe you should take the time add your income tax and all the other taxes that we pay and take for granted add it up to see the real value of your earnings and then we can try the many road that takes us to Castries and you will realize that each road that take you to Castries will take you there at a different cost. The Governments of St.Lucia for the past 38 years has been and continue to be a waste of time and resources.
