    St. Vincent was probably the backwaters of the British Empire outside of Africa.

    They build us a really beautiful prison in the centre of town. Right next to it is a wonderfully designed Courthouse, it's an architectural wonder. A few blocks away, the magnificently designed Police Headquaters. You get the drift.

    It slipped their minds to even consider building a school or library. They were so good to us, we really need to thank them for the jail, the police station and the courthouse.

    I get the drift You think thats bad the prision is located next to the Antigua Rec(cricket ground) what dey trying to say. Antiguan fans cant control themselves so bad that they have to have the prision so close as reminder what will happen? Really good to see when you leave the stadium after a victory in Cricket or Football (but I dont normally sit that end so im cool )

    I think that had St Lucia been British only, we would have been much further along. Having been the most embattled of the islands for sheer beauty (and perhaps strategic location) has left us halfway there. St Lucia was 7 times British and 7 times French. Now we are stuck in a rut trying to appreciate patois as a language, no one trades in patois and it makes no economic sense, yet it should be embraced. It is glamourised now by the PM trying to speak it and now all rich people trying to speak it too (albeit badly). Perhaps it may the fault of the authorities at independence time that decided where we are now.

    I think Guyana has a lot to show after having been colonised by the British, the Dutch have also left an indelible impression by the seawall and some of the place names.
