    President? We have a President? You must be talking about that old puppet residing in that palace in Roseau?

    I am saddened by the continued slow response of the telecommunications ministry. 3 years post Maria and almost the entire eastern district has been ignored by both companies to restore internet and cable services. How can schools operate online if students are unable to connect to wifi services? Who will be responsible for expensive top up for limited data service? The government seem only concerned that their private offices have the fastest internet speeds while the poor people continue to suffer to put a little data plan every day. When will the government address this?

    What is this tool talking about? School going on nah for him to be talking about wifi in schools. Is Digicel and Lime going to cut off everyone who doesn’t pay bills this month? Is there going to be a grace period? What about top ups and people who depend on data on their phone for info- as is the norm on the entire east coast?
    Coming here talking cheap DLP propaganda and not speaking on real issues on hand. Allu want people to stay indoors, what happens when people run out of food, the ability to talk to others via phone/ whatsapp, watch tv, access data- most importantly when people get hungry!!!

    Mr Senator Oscar George….Digicel has always been a failure in times like these..why is emphasis being placed on them? If this is a colaborative effort why not give Flow its due since we are all in this together.

    I myself don’t even know what’s going on in this damn country. I thought when a state of emergency was declared according to our constitution, we were supposed to see more of the President taking control, since he is supposed to be the non political figure that represents all of us regardless of our political affiliation; but here it seems as if after a state of emergency, the president goes deeper into hiding, while Roosevelt Skerrit, one man, takes full control to do whatever he wants man. To me, State of emergency here is like when a doctor is about to perform a surgery, they give you an injection to sedate you, so they could do their job undisturbed.
