  5. zANDOLEE,
    Why call the bloggers "DUNCE" when you do not seem to be displaying much intelligence.Use of
    context clues by you is non-existent.
    The blogger said"Here we go again;another overseas trip.Do the people benefit from all of those trips.
    The blogger is complaining about the continuous travelling being done by Kenny Anthony.Also of what benefit to St.Lucians(including you and lucian observer) are the majority of those trips?
    These are highly relevant questions considering the fact that St.Lucia is stuck in a quandary.Shouldn't Kenny's time be better spent staying at home trying to solve the huge economic and social challenges that confronts the country.If Kenny was prioritizing his trips(cutting out those that are of little value to the country(of course these are of great importance to his ego)he would be spending 90% of his time at home trying to fix the problems he created through bad policies.
    Almost every week a press release states he is going somewhere.How many press releases are issued upon his return telling us what was accomplished(of what benefit was the trip to St.lucia?)
    Aren,t you interested in finding out what transpired considering its tax payers money funding the trip?
    Even when the trip is funded by an agency or another country,travel expenses plus other living expenses do come from the Government treasury.
    This trip he should attend,but there have been numerous ones he could have opted out and stay at home to correct the problems his bad policies created.
    Do you remember that a few days after being sworn in as PM (2011)he took off to attend an ALBA meeting as an observer?Was that trip more neccessary that staying at home to get the government up and running?
    You would recall that instead of meeting with vice president Biden he chose to go to Cuba.
    BY the way,did Phillip j Pierre tell us what was discussed at that meeting?
    I guess my two friends are not interested in finding out.They are only interested when persons ask relevant questions which any concerned St.Lucian should be asking and for that they are called "DUNCE"

    • Lol That's part of being prime minister "travelling" , improving relations with other countries ...and his going to a United Nations General Assembly ...Dude the UN!!...if st lucia wasn't part of the UN it would be dead right , and that alba thing you people raging about "anti-American Ting"
      ALBA members are part of the UN , America is part of the UN.
