  8. Amazing Alan just came into office and his on vacation , that's the way to go you might as well stay on permanent leave. Just recently you started a tour meet the workers, you should be in office to address those issues you encountered but it's better to go on vacation . When will we st lucians learn and decide who we put in office to represent us.
