    Nothing but a junket & a chance to play some golf. What is the ROI for this vacation?

  6. question says:

    Is he really taking credit for “…our progressive forward thinking approach to tourism investment and development”?

    It’s his lot that still call an investment that stimulated the economy and gave us 5x return on our money “giving money away to billionaires”.

    He’s a die-hard incurable firkin moron.
