    well Objective,

    Why dont you form a new Democratic party and take the st.kitts / nevis PM to court for all the corruption that you states is going on in St Kitts, or maybe you have more sense that the UWP in this country .

    Sharma seems to be the one preoccupied and scared by the approach 2012. I guess he/she is unsure of his/her salvation.

    If you are a God fearing person living your life right you should not be preoccupied with dates. That’s for the heathen.

    LOUBOUR RULE TILL 2012 CAUSE THERE WILL BE NO MORE ELECTION

    Given the numerous voter irregularities that occurred in this election and given that all concerns of the opposition (both in St Kitts and Nevis) have fallen on deaf ears, it would not be surprising if Labour is returned to power. But obviously, when the time is right, God will get them out. It is just so blatant when hundreds of persons who never ever lived or worked in the key constituencies could be allowed to register there, just to prevent the opposition from winning. The corruption in St Kitts has put Dominica in the shade and has made the Dominica nPrime Minister look like a saint. This corruption has been totally sanctioned by two Dominicans – you would be shocked to know who they are.
