  2. At 80 years; I don’t expect to live 80 years more, therefore I would have sent the one-man rogue regime rotting in hell for eternity!! I wouldn’t allow a man who’s far from being 80 robbing the resources of the island to drag me to court like that, the one-man rogue chichi family would be left to mourn!!!

  4. I hope their lawyer put up a good defense as to why the speaker of the house is now free for something he was part of and had his time in court for. Is committing a crime right once you join the ruling party. Belle Beff.
