(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – Mrs Meg Williams, the British Government’s Consular Regional Director for the Americas and Caribbean, made her first visit to St Lucia on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th February.

Mrs Williams is responsible for overseeing the delivery of assistance to British people living, travelling and working in the region when they are most in need, including in times of crisis.

Included in Mrs William’s itinerary were calls on the Ministry for Home Affairs and Security, Police Commissioner Severin Moncherry, Director Fernanda Henry at the St Lucia Forensic Science Laboratory and the Vulnerable Persons Unit of the Royal St Lucia Police Force.

Mrs Williams, who concluded her programme by hosting a reception at the British High Commission, thanked a wide range of partners in government, the tourist and hotel industry, transport and other sectors who play a key role in ensuring British visitors to the island have an enjoyable and safe stay in St Lucia. 70,000 thousand British tourists visit St Lucia every year, making it one of the UK’s most popular Caribbean holiday destinations.

Mrs Williams was joined on her programme by Consular Officials from the British High Commissions in both Castries and Bridgetown.

  1. And many St. Lucians opine and wonder why the colonial, subservient mentality continues to be allegedly so pervasive --- simply read the press release.

    In part, but not limited to:

    "Mrs Williams is responsible for overseeing the delivery of assistance to British people living, travelling and working in the region when they are most in need, including in times of crisis."

    "Included in Mrs William’s itinerary were calls on the Ministry for Home Affairs and Security, Police Commissioner Severin Moncherry, Director Fernanda Henry at the St Lucia Forensic Science Laboratory and the Vulnerable Persons Unit of the Royal St Lucia Police Force."

    it is very interesting to note how those seeming 'fair weather' columnists that revel in making money from writing paragraph upon paragraph asserting convenient self-serving populist dog-whistles such as 'patrimony', 'indigenous', 'colonialist' and other such terms seem to steer very clear of writing on such events and press releases.

    Perhaps there exists an ironic hypocrisy in the seeming selective silence of the wannabe socialist-for-the-people pundits.

    Based on present appearances, it would appear to be a badge-of-convenience for said wannabe socialist-for-the-people pundits when they choose to cart it out for their selfish purposes.

    God bless.
