  1. Why is the OPPOSITION LEADER Mr. Arnhim Eustace, the man who claims that he wants to be the PRIME MINISTER of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, not attending this IMPORTANT OECS meeting?

    Kenton, if you’re a true INVESTIGATIVE reporter, your INSTINCTS should be telling you to FIND OUT why Mr. Eustace, who missed the LAST MEETING of the HOUSE of PARLIAMENT, is not attending the meeting of the OECS ASSEMBLY.

  3. VINCYNEEDSASHOWERPOWA, Poosey, why do you find it necessary to keep attacking Mr Chance. If you can’t behave yourself, like the fat man can’t behave himself, go elsewhere and be rude.

    You have spent years attacking me. Telling lies about me and everything that I say. Attempting to stifle the truth and honest decency.

    I really didn’t need Gonsalves and a whole hoard of ministers to go tripping the airways, squandering yet more of our money. It only takes one person to go to such a meeting, it looks like the annual ULP jolly-up is about to take place.

    In any case its Panorama day, the national holiday, they should all remain at home, it may prove to be one of the most important events in the year.

    On Tuesday everyone should blow their horn whilst driving past the financial centre.
