Ellie (who claims to be unaffiliated politically): I see no reason why he should go; that’s the man’s personal business. If he wants everyone to know what he’s doing it’s still his problem and his business.
Nick: I think he should be removed. I don’t think he’s a good example and I think he should redeem himself. I would feel ashamed if he was my father.
Gemma: Well, he knew what he did was bad. I guess that’s why he removed himself from government.
Talia: I thought about it and at first I said he doesn’t have to resign because that’s his personal life and everyone falters sometimes. But, I really feel terrible for his wife and children. They should remove him because that’s not the first time and he represents the country. I don’t support either party presently.
Etan: I personally think he should be removed because that’s the second strike. The first incident I was in and out, I didn’t think he should resign because it was personal what he was doing with those women. But, in this case he was speaking about his responsibilities as minister for the public service and this is information you shouldn’t share in those circumstances. I never know which candidate to vote for until Election Day.
Tahnee: I think he should stop cheating on his wife and learn from his mistakes. If he continues then he needs to resign because he cannot be respected or trusted. I still support the UWP though.
Fayola: He should resign and check into rehab effective immediately. The man has an addiction. I will always be a Labour.
Macka-me: If you are doing something, do it privately. But you lying, lying and lying to people and now you’re exposed. The simple thing to do is resign. I think the prime minister should send him home. You are a government minister and must set the example. Because if I do it nobody will take an action against me because nobody is looking up to me. I am no side.
Phil: The politics in Saint Lucia stinks; just a bunch of kids running around. As he said he’s in a position that he should set an example and if people are looking up to you to do right by the people, then you must be able to conduct yourself because you’re supposed to be a disciplined person. I’m from Saint Lucia but I live in England. If he was in England he would have to step down or they would sack him.
Donavan: It was the right move. He should have been fired and that should be the protocol for all government officials moving forward. He put the country at risk. I support the UWP.
John: He should not have resigned or been fired or whatever the case was because he was set up and I think he should be given one more chance. I am a UWP supporter.
