  1. Those politicians waiting when the next election is near , to enact a minimum wage for certain sectors in the private sector from hotel workers to security guards

  2. That’s what Hilaire have been waiting for, now show PjP how its done. Speak with a sense of clarity. Incidentally, see where this is to be held – in St. Vincent; what did Gonsalves say that happened there? sounds familiar? at that conference you will have an expert, the one who took over from Dr. Horrace Chang, the present “Chairman of the Council for National security and Law Enforcement,” he is supposed to be in the best position to give the best advise to the St. Vincent Police and Government how to go about the apprehension of these criminals; then after that, he should unload the burden of that Chairmanship of the Council for security and Law enforcement, something he was too much in a hurry to accept. The thing to watch is, some wise guy may suggest a Federation of the Eastern Caribbean States, and if so, where would the Federal Capital be? its only a thought, what would yours be?
