  1. I wonder when will responsible St Lucians get bored with Chastanet's ceaseless traveling? I would have thought at a time when the country has just been hit a storm and more bad weather is expected the country needs his attention more than ever. I think this man has a superiority complex and I don't think it will be long before the rest of the party get pissed off with this "all important attitude".
