  1. We are lucky Guy is not in power, had he been, with Chas by his side all this money would vanish and nothing will be achieved.

  2. Between 2011 and 2016 every time parliament met there was a bill to borrow. Chastanet criticized Kenny Anthony for that.
    Between 2016 and 2021 every time parliament met there was a bill to borrow. Pierre who was deputy to Anthony criticized Chastanet for that.
    Now from 2021 Pierre has been borrowing and borrowing.
    With Hilaire by Pierre’s side I hope some of that money does not make its way to purchasing range rovers or to Red International.
