  1. As our Prime Minister goes to Address the NWU Conference in St Lucia in Oil-rich Venezuela things could not get any worst. The country is facing one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises, according to the United Nations where some mothers are even giving away their babies while many children are now living on the streets. One must ask could things get ant worst there?

    And while all this is going on, we have a “Venezuelan national Abraham Edgardo Ortega, 51, previously PDVSA’s executive director of financial planning, pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering on Wednesday 31st Sep in the Southern District Court of Florida.”

    As this executive pleads guilty to the $1B money laundering scheme, one has to ask again what is it with these so-called socialist. We often know people by the friends they keep and we in this instance do know who President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela best friend is in our state.

    They often say birds of a feather flock together, that is people of the same sort or with the same, outlook, politics, tastes and interests will often be found together.
    Therefore, it would not be surprising to find President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela, former President of Brazil Dilma Rousse, our Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, the former Cuban leader Fidel Castro and former President of Brazil Lula da Silva in the same grouping. What at light does this observation throw on our state of affairs in SVG?
    With the Carwash scandal claiming its latest culprit as Peru’s Keiko Fujimori jailed until bribery case trial we have to ask ourselves what next?

    Is this Ralph Gonsalves really having a laugh on us too?
