  1. Am I missing something here….didn’t Scotia want to sell it’s operations to a foreign entity and the PM himself intervened. How is it that he is entertaining the possibility now that FCIB can sell to a foreign entity?

    • What you are missing is the implementation of the New World Order in your face…government ownership of everything

  2. i think we should buyout the st Lucia branch instead and bring in some foreign exchange. We will be sending a lot of money to Canada/barbados during the buyout.

  3. Surely local banking as the only option is a bad thing ?
    Please leave one foreign bank so commercial, private and personal customers still have a choice.
    Competition is a good thing.

  4. Politics have really turn our brains upside down. GB is doing the correct thing with the banks. You can have different perspectives but everything isn’t about this foolish political game. The problem with you UPPITES, opposing everything that are proposed without offering any solutions will not make lives for Wadadlians. That’s is of the many reasons you couldn’t govern Wadadli properly. You guys are so filled with bullshit.

  5. ACB,in opinion is stretched too thin,at this time. Plus APUA owes them a hefty sum of a loan. ACB stay on your journey. Do not let that stached one take you off of it.
