SVG Not Tagged!

The "Tag Manager" of the UK Guardian wrote a peice at

that mentioned in passing that St. Vincent and the Grenadines was the only country in the world that didn't even have a tag in their system, much less a tagged news story in 2010. I added the following comment:

'm surprised that you have no tag for St. Vincent and the Grenadines. We suffered as much damage from hurricanes in 2010 as St. Lucia. We just had an election that was quite close and quite nasty that took place on December 13 and which the leader of the opposition threatens to challenge even though the Government invited international observers who praised the handling of the election and certified its validity. Both of these were events that were as worth covering as events that happened in other Caribbean countries. It would be fair to say, I think, that the reason St. Vincent and the Grenadines has no tag in your filing system is the fault of your system and not the lack of internationally newsworthy events happening on St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

You might review the last few years on St. Vincent and the Grenadines if you look at my blog at:
