    Hopefully she will use this Town hall Meeting as an opportunity to apologise for the ‘lack of financial discipline, waste, and abuse’ that the Education Minister found in the Education Ministry during preparations for the Budget. After all, the Premier has been Finance Minister for several years; she must bear some responsibility for this. Perhaps she will also tell us how many of the 500 or so civil servants in the Education Ministry, who must have been overseeing all this lack of discipline, waste and abuse for the past few years, will lose their jobs.

    Ct, surely you are not hoping for any admission of irresonsible fiscal accountability from this Premier/Finance Minister are you? Hope you have good lungs. You will need to hold your breath for a long long time. The water under Flatts Bridge stands a better chance of freezing first.

    Not a chance that anyone will be disciplined let alone lose their jobs. This 12 year old PLP Government has shown its contempt for rules and procedures as demonstrated and confirmed in so many well publicized occasions. “Unethical but not illegal” seems to be the polite description. Smuggling in 4 immigrants overnight, aided and abetted by the present Minister of National Security; failure to follow procedures of the TCD facility as confirmed by the person responsible; 3 qualified audits the responsibility of the present Minister of Finance and the list goes on. What’s the reaction? Call on the Private Sector and International Business to do more! Hopefully at the meeting tonight the Premier will explain why no Government jobs have been lost while redundancies and layoffs continue in the Private Sector, the source of Government funds.

      Unethical behavior was not accepted by a large segment of the community. The reinstatement of col. Burch was the final straw for many in this community, many people expected a new fresh start with honest people in ministerial positions. You can hold a hundred town hall meetings, but I refuse to sit next to someone who dishonest and deceitful.

    Action Speaks louder than words. We all know the Premier has a big bag of words don’t we.
