      The PM is hoping to be rewarded at the ballot boxes, he got some calypsonians covered, so they would muzzled, he will make some judges, give out some handles, Sirs etc. and make permanent positions in the last dying days of his captaincy.

    Class and elegance shines through this lady. She will serve this island well, especially at a time when morals and common sense is headed for the door. Dame Sandra is the antithesis of another uman seeking higher office, and she knows what it is to be a mother…not a mother. For you political optimist harbouring thoughts of success in this year’s general elections, there is nothing fake about Dame Sandra’s legal career. She has ALL the degrees needed to proudly say she is a real Lawyer.
    God rewards the honest individual.

    @Big Man. Luther is clearly not a man of his word. He promised to go on a hunger strike a long time ago and is still not dead. He cannot be trusted. Don’t believe a word he says.
