    • I wish I could be there to witness the touchdown. Shame on the negative talks, I am really bored with it. Our Airport is a reality now.

    • It is not over until the FAT LADY SINGS. Instead of a HOLIDAY. Pay the workers from Buccament Bay Resort some of that money that you keep wasting. Taxpayers money that is. They still need to buy food and pay their mortgages and send their kids to school. It is still a hard environment to exist in. These conditions were brought about by the hard economical conditions that exist on the Island and the Budgetary Bills that he keeps introducing on the Taxpayers of SVG every year. He has Mortgaged the future of every woman, man and child in SVG for all eternity.

  1. Enlighten me what will one day cost “US”? It is declared a public holiday but if you run a private business you can open full day or half day. Why are we against everything in this country.

  2. Secondly, I can tell you first hand America does the most begging of any country not assumptions. Facts. Ask me how I know I dare you. You sound like you are NDP voter which is fine but the issue is they say ralph divides the country yet both sides do the same. Embrace the damn day, stay home or go to the site and get ready for work on the 15th!!!!!

  3. Whether it is a public holiday or not it’s going to happen, you don’t have to come and be part of it. You can stay home and on the 15th of February open up your device and blog away with your negativity.
