  3. Squideyee says:

    and he came here to the tourism office and had meetings with staff……wonder why?

  4. Keep doing what you are doing, Minister. Proud of you!!

    Two days at the most in New York and ground travel is $321.83? Exactly where did he travel on the ground that cost US almost three quarters the price of air travel? Did he have private limo service at his beck and call?

  6. Pink says:

    This looks perfectly reasonable. Stop looking for things to complain about. What do you want him to eat, McDonald’s and Taco Bell?

  7. whip lash says:

    14.24 for meals, hardly doubt it.

    The lure of the Jet .

    Next trip, or can that be done on the phone to New Zealand to bring the “New Zealand Cup” event here,
    all you got to do is make it worth while to them, like another $70 mil to fill in something .

    Jim Bob could have won the AC only if he listened to his geometry teacher.

    J.S. you don’t need go to Timbukto to buy Taco Bell.
