“I wonder if I can convince him to say ‘Labour love?’” Could this be what a very pensive Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, left, is thinking at Colonairie, a community in North Central Windward, which he represents in Parliament, during Prince Harry’s royal visit on Saturday?

    God save the Royal family. May they long rule over us!

    Nothing but love for our colonial masters. And to show how much we love and appreciate your continued control, we’ll bring out the bells and whistles and stop at nothing to show you how happy we are for you to just grace us with presence. Oh how I love my colonial mentality! I don’t care what anyone says, I love the state of affairs.
