  1. Improving St Lucia's domestic situation and attracting more tourists are not mutually exclusive. The Government needs to tax big overseas companies - and probably some home-grown ones too - proportionately. St Lucia is almost a tax haven for companies whose USP is "all-inclusive" - all inclusive profit for them. They should be paying for an overhaul of the criminal justice system so blatant breaches of the law are punished, they should pay for real training and job opportunities, particularly for the young men of St Lucia. Most importantly, they should pay for the right to do business in St Lucia in the same way they would pay everywhere else. We need tourism, and we need to treat people right when they come, offer good value and expect people to respect the island and its resources.


  2. Yet more money being shelled out by the government on tourism - consultants here, committees there. All this takes money. Isn’t it time to look at the domestic situation in St Lucia. This is just papering over the deep cracks in the society in which the locals must exist.
    Make it safe on the island for locals, give them satisfactory health facilities. Sort the crippled justice system as a priority so that it can deal efficiently and in a timely manner with the desperate crime situation. Why isn’t money being put into a new court building - now, not in years to come. Too many are waiting too long for justice - an outrageous situation. The government said it would sort the justice system. This is the second time the Court has closed over the past years. It doesn’t seem Justice is a priority. How can the Police and legal profession do their jobs effectively?
