  1. Lets be real lets be honest for once…The PM is on point literally and figuratively. Bars are difficult. One drink and head gone

  2. I am still at lost when it is said that bars are closed when some bars remain open day and night. I speak in particular to a bar in Browns avenue where many police officers are seen daily. This bar continues to operate openly, and the main patrons are police officers.

    Commissioner Rodney, you need to deal with your officers. It is really a fact that the system is two-tier: one policy for the ordinary poor people and another for the well-connected.


    • Not to mention the “illegal bars” that remain operating despite curfew because policemen visit them. These are double standards, no compliance and no enforcement of any kind of the law.

  3. I’ve got the solution….just require proof of vaccination to work at or patronize the bars!! They’re all protected…right…right…? The vax works right…right…?
