That hastily-constructed budget shows absolutely NO creativity nor any financial innovation in responding to our recurring problems. So the Ministry of Finance is just doing the same darn things over and over again and the framers of this budget expect a different result? Really?The Minister and Ministry of Finance show little control of the mechanics and the mechanisms they are proposing. To the discerning eye no controls are in place. Where and what are the milestones and benchmarks to give even a ray of hope that any of the goals will be achieved. Is the Ministry of Finance still wrapped up in the era of sterile discussions related to introductory economics? Where is the needed sophistication? Where is the absolutely necessary balance? If you choke off spending alone by cutting wages and salaries, is that the same thing as growing the economy. Will it grow all by itself because of the cuts? Some people can read well. Nice oral speaking! One cannot help but conclude that this Finance Ministry is over-loaded with stand-up comics.
Jadia's quotation attributed to the Prime Minister sounds a lot like a threat or ultimatum that may actually serve to preempt discussion in good faith.
Had Kenny not turned out to be such a con artist. The Public Service and by extension the People of St Lucia, would definitely have been willing to make the sacrifice.
Simply put: The PM with this lousy one-man PS-constructed budget has not yet made a case for the ill-conceived hodge-podge measures planned. Tell us what is going to be done with each tax yield, and cost saving, piece by piece, or call an election. It is time to put an end to stupid country-boukey government.
Cut the salaries and prepare the teargas.
Absolute tosh! Nobody has challenged the comedians in the Ministry of Finance to explain when and where in the world has any economy grown from negative territory into 10% growth in any one fiscal year. Now if, to my recollection and reading, it has never happened anywhere before, why are these jokers proffering such risible bilge in lieu of cogent argument for the draconian steps for economic depression their are advocating? Why?
