    I don't believe we should describe the former first-lady in the manner which [jobsz] chose to describe her.

    In a society people behave differently.

    The new first-lady along with her husband have shown love and care for people in all classes of society.

    We all knew and still know that a former first-lady will not mingle with "poor-people" or people who does not speak with American accent or walk with a put-on style etc etc.

    Andrew Fahie and Mrs Fahie,did not wait to be in political life to be friends of the nation,
    Mrs and Mrs FAHIE served people with a level of respect for all.

    So,therefor I can say that people are different and there is a difference in attitude with a former first lady and the present first lady.
    The present first lady has a good attitude toward people.

    One love.

    It’s about time we move on and stop talk stupidness. VIP won the election but all we talk about is NDP why can’t we move on. The First Lady wouldn’t like you disrespecting other ladies. I don’t know her but she seems to be a loving humble and respectable lady so please let’s congratulate her and stop the name calling. Be over with it.

    Lovely photo of the Premier and his wife who is a sweet and charming young lady. I do not however condone the very nasty attitude being displayed by some regarding another first lady. While that lady was not born in this Territory she came her as a very young girl and went through our educational system. She served this Territory exceptionally well and gave bac to it during her service as a public officer. We are in a better position today because of her and we should be grateful for that.

      Your post is absolutely rubbish. She takes more than she gave. Which First Lady you hear take a job and call it interim for 8 years. Is to say you backward and no succession planning. Belittle her husband like she wear the pants. Height of nonense. Nothing far from bloodsucking and a raid or ether yet rape of the land and people. The world need to know this bad example.
