The Chairman of the FNM Sidney Collie is a lost soul. Since the election, he has been cooling his heels in town waiting we hear on an appointment to be Ambassador to Washington (God help us!).

Mrs. Carron is a twit with nothing better to do with her time, […]
Dion Smith who was treated like a criminal when the police mistakenly kept him in jail overnight looking for two speakers, a computer hard drive and a TV set. Turns out all the stuff belonged to him. The police descended shortly after the general election with guns drawn (semi- automatics) if you please, and ski […]
