    I am proud of our Hon. Premier Andrew Fahie who was selected to speak at President Clinton's Foundation event in Perhaps it is the first for the territory. It shows clearly that the Premier can rise to the World Stage and associate with some of the Most Powerful in the world. Despite all the bashing he was getting from his people during the debate over the Immigration Amendment Bill.

    It shows when you are chosen by God, you are qualify the speak anywhere in the world on any tonic. I would like all the critics to be silent , especially Hon. Fraser, Turnbull, Alvera Maduro and Marlon Penn. The world recognised the Premier and he will be there for a long time. Hats off to the Premier.

    Do you people not read or do you just forget? The Clintons, Mr and Mrs are not or ever were good for Black people. Mr Clinton with his 3 strikes bill in the 90’s, imprisoning young men to life sentencing when some of their crimes did not warrant a life sentence, and Mrs Clinton’s group who stole all of the money that was supposed to be for Haiti building housing recovery. Invitation or not, I wouldn’t have gone to STT to be pictured with the enemies of our people. We as a people should always inspect the hand that want to shake ours.

      It's not enough for you to bash members of your own newly elected Government,
      You have to bash others too?
      I don't think you have your facts straight.

    Human beings have emotions:

    I don't expect a supporter of the VIP to criticize our beloved Premier.

    It must be understoodd that its just 3 months ago the NDP lost the elections.

    Supporters of the NDP are still hurting,with emotional pain.

    Premier fahie is an honourable man,both in private and political life..

    One love..
