    If anybody out there is still in any doubt what this National Youth Council and this National Youth Parliament is all about let me tell you this, these guys in particular the President of the Youth Council were all handpicked by Skerrit. They are blind followers of this man and his corrupt doctrine.

      Your statement about this youth council is the immaculate truth. Everything Roosevelt touches becomes tainted. It is not fit for consumption. Because of the hyper apart mean politics practised by Roosevelt and his goons, the combined potential of these young people goes to waste.

      How do you find yourself in a position that you hate someone so much that you wish permanent harm to them? Did she do some really bad thing to you or someone you loved? This post is full of hate. I hope that you are exorcised of the demons and toxins that torment you so that you can enjoy the freedoms and pleasures that Mrs. Knight championed.

      Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 0 Thumb down 8
