  4. Ground fakings are so normal for Gaston Browne. He is pretty good at it, he pull these projects out of his bag of trying a ting.

    Enough of these photo opportunities with grown folks acting like this is for real.
    Why are you not empowering the Police to solve crimes, provide them with more transportation and increase neighborhood patrols.
