    What's the obsession with St LUCIA. There's Jamaica, Antigua, and more.

    St. Lucia again. Is it a coincidence that St. Lucia is front and center all of a sudden in meeting some of the territory’s service needs? Is St. Lucia being given preferential treatment because it step up to house our most dangerous prisoners after the hurricanes of 2017?

      I wish my BVIslanders could travel more. They are to sheltered and thus have a closed mind. That way they would stop being so small minded.

    Tell me where a BVI company can go to St Lucia and win a bid. Tell me where a BVIslander can go to St Lucia and be a CEO of their Ports. All these moves are the NDP's spiritual evil strategy. Put people in place who are demonically aligned as they are.
