  1. Hey Kenton
    Two men fron Chato are hospitalised and are in critical condition at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital from the same accident. They were standing by the roadside in close proximity to where they were part of a contingent that had gone to Layou to participate in a frienfly domino match. I am not sure if your information about the two ladies are correct or if its additional info.

  2. The post didn’t give enough information leading up to the reason for the car running off the road.However,if it is not brakes or tire failure then I believe it must be speeding. A lot drivers think that all roads in St Vincent are really highways and drive so recklessly on these small roads it is disgusting.

  3. I drove through Layou on Saturday and dodging the holes in the roads is tantamount to driving through a minefield.

    Lets hope this isn’t something else we can lay on the Francis boy. Get down there Francis and check out the holes. Perhaps the people should fill them with cement if you can’t afford to do them.

    Driving under the influence is the norm in SVG, pot holes are the norm in SVG, death and injury through these norms are becoming the norm. Not that I am prejudging what happened in this case, I am generalising.

    The Francis and Gonsalves team are to blame for our roads. They told us that the airport would cost us nothing, that was a lie, to date it has bankrupt the country. Therefore we cannot repair roads or buildings unless the EU help us. Don’t expect anything from ALBA, unless we have to repay it as a loan, interest rate may be low, but we still have to repay. Of course we are in a worse state because Venezuela stole $10 million from us that we paid for Cuban wages, unless that is, Gonsalves lied about them paying the Cuban wage bill.

    Time to discontinue the the airport until we have repaired the roads, repaid the NIS, and all the others that we have taken advantage of and failed to pay. Then when we have paid our debts restart the airport, but only after putting proper planned funding in place.

    If the airport is such a great deal, how come ALBA has not funded it. Forget all the crap about petrocarib, that was just an election ploy. Remember the cooking gas, what a load of crap and our people gobble it up.

    WAKE UP AND SMELL THE SULPHUR

    have to fully agree with this because after listening and doing an analysis on 2011 Budget, I felt this was best move to make and also to use some funds to help generate more micro and small enterprises and get back to airport in another 3 years of so….
