  1. Those who did not want the other party to collect monies for their pocket are doing the same thing now. What is not good for one is good for another. No voting for me next election. Waste of my vote.

  3. More damn HANDOUTS. With all his so called intellectual pedigree, why the hell can't Kenny Anthony come up with ideas which are
    fruitful and sustainable for our economy? This man is useless and clueless. Worst leader in the caribbean. Every 2 freaking days he's out of state (per diem $$$$$). All these conferences in England, Monaco, etc how have they benefited us? In no way. How have they benefited kenny? In a HUGE f......G way. Look at it from Alva to Jadia to Robert Lewis - just take a look at the lifestyle changes, now take a look at the average Lucian's? This is PLAIN wrong. Ppl need to open their eyes. If it's not Grynberg, it's Jafferli...WAKE UP PPL

  4. What a bunch of idiots and stooges, the biggest of all being Harold Dalson. Now tell me Mr. Dalson, shouldn't that money be going towards improving the health service at the Soufriere Hospital? Isn't the hospital Soufriere's major problem at the moment? Isn't the health of a nation the wealth of a nation? You know Plato was right, "the punishment for not taking part in politics is that you get to be governed by your inferiors."

    • I am subject to correction, but remember Taiwan broke away from mainland China. It is not part of the UN and as such it might not be viewed as a state and so international recognition as eroded. St.Lucia who is a UN member state has diplomatic relations with Taiwan and because of this relationship it can be a strategic advantage for Taiwan on the international scene. So hence the reason you would see these sort of contributions etc.

    • Simple. It is the money of the tax payers in Taiwan. Part of it will end up in the pockets of Lucian politicians and their friends. The other part will end up in the pockets of the Taiwanese diplomats and their friends. Taiwan is well known for this fraud in many countries.
