We need an international airport to do what with ? We cannot afford it at all , half of the countrys labour force is suffering with the current health care system , I have chronic asthma yet every blasted time I go to the hospital I cannot get nebulized properly , CAT scan ain't even Workinq , they don't have enough scales to measure babies much less to do a blood transplant and you Tlkinq about international airport , lissen me countries lie st.kitts yes , they are smaller than us but guess what theybhavenall developed their other sectors of their economy before they dealt with factors such as an international airport ,you say that we need to put the country before the party ! Precisely why we need to fix our health care sector , the transport sector alll other sectors before be address a intl airport . Further more we need to divesify our Economy , why should we capitalize on tourism alone ? Why can't we try something else ? Tourism as a main revenue earner is not sufficient enough to run this country MUCH LESS AN AIRPORT ! You know how much money it is to run an airport ? To buy all the equipment ? Have you forgotten that the airport further more has to be approved by the American security because of recent terrorism worldwide and because of the high importation of illegal drugs ? If the airport doesn't meet these requirements no one will Come to svg ! And before we even talk about people coming don't forget that there is a cutback in travel because of the recent GLOBAL economic crisis !!! And countries like Haiti would easily get poor relief from the big dogs in the game --- USA ( even though they are in economic trouble too) china etc , remember we keep on affiliating ourselves with CUBA --- who have had bad history with AMERICA so , do tell me -- what is the plan ?---- talk Is cheap but it takes money to buy wine and my dear lady we have no money at all -- NONE and CARICOM can't even help us , i am A strong ULP supporter but my views will remain as such , however , this plan to make an international airport will lead us into futhur debt , causing my great grand kids to have to live in this debt for generations to come .

Now that the airport is well underway and seeing the on the dawn of the 2010 General Elections, the NDP's Leader, Arnhim Eustace expressed support for the Argyle Internatinal Airport, I am wondering what all you folks who opposed it are saying now. It really shows how myopic you are and how you are unable to make your own decisions

Which good ? Obviously you haven't looked deeper into the issue .. So everyone who has guts needs a "big hand " well why don't we give a big hand to Osama Bin Laden for having the guts for blowing up the twin towers , and perhaps a hand for the guy who chopped off stacey's head at the bus stop , he had guts too right ?... Maybe you should do some thinking before you type next time .
