    I hope the bill for the Roseau bi-election is on the agenda. Why should Ms. Charles be sworn in and there is another seat that has to be vacated?

      Hmmmmmm……this bill will never go to parliament as long as the recent BIG case “allegedly” involving prominent people is pending. Mark my words.
