WHERE did that notion of giving a new government 100 days of grace come from? Well, if it is an ordinance from heaven I will adhere to it. Father Lord Jah, did you give such an ordinance?
No! OK, then.
Well, this cabinet is a real manjékochon. Father Lord I did not mind the UWP winning the election but Chastanet Lord? Chastanet! But your wisdom and mine cannot be compared.
What is a Ministry of Equity? The man inventing things or did that come from the Minister of Innovation? So we move from cutting the grass behind the grass to ministry in a ministry and the ministers in there is a minister under a minister under a minister.
But the man not listening. He is hard of hearing. He gave everybody a ministry and he wants to reduce VAT. He did not have to listen to me; I know I am a nobody but he could have listened to the counsel of Sir Arthur Lewis. As a student of Economics he must have encountered his work. He played a deaf ear and is sending us to the desert; the cultural desert. Arts and Culture have disappeared. So much for a Ministry of Arts. Who oversees carnival and calypso?
A Ministry of Job Creation? Is not job creation the responsibility of every ministry and more directly a function of the private sector?
Oh, the jumble up! One person is responsible for Economic Development and one for Economic Growth. I don’t get it. What is the difference? Gender Relations is dividesd from Family affairs. Oh no, that disappeared as well.
Does the Prime Minister have to be the Minister of Finance (especially one whose history is not a testament to frugality). Is that enshrined in our constitution? Why does the prime minister want all these people so close to him? Bradley Felix: Minister in the office of the Prime Minister. Dominic Fedee: Minister in the office of the Prime Minister; Ubaldus Raymond: Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Economic Growth, Job Creation, External Affairs and the Public Service. Is the Prime Minister going weight lifting? What a load! I thought was King that was the heavy roller but it looks like Chastanetpwen tout. Jimmy Henry. I won’t even lament that. Did the Prime Minister have people advising him on the arrangement of ministries? Some of these mixes sound so illogical while some of them read well. So much to deconstruct. Now I think I should leave this mangékochon alone. It is after three in the morning and I don’t think pigs eat that late. But if they do, boy, do they have something to munch on.
And the cost of redoing all those letter heads and the signage for each ministry. Now spending start. But we not going there.
If nothing else I am happy though that the people in Vieux Fort got to put a little “chingching” in their pockets.
