  1. We have a situation where over 80 percent of private sector workers earn 2 to 5 EC dollars an hour, living in poverty . Where agricultural is just selling our produce by the road side …

  2. Absolutely despicable; this is the news of so many of Ira’s friends to find out that he has passed, and this idiot who comes on as Freemason talks his usual boring subject of $ & C. I wish someone could stick a loaf down his throat just to put some sense in his head.
    Ira was a good friend of mine, I remember him well dancing at one of our W.I. dances, telling his dance partner, ‘come down’ while he wind his way down to the floor, never was that taught at Law School, but Ira was a fun guy wherever he went.
    Good passage to the new Kingdom my friend, hope you’ll be shinning bright when I arrive.
