  1. Chinese done collecting back money under the disguised for the repayment of the hospital, stadium VF, air and sea port. You think Dem mun wasting time. Vote for pjp again please

  2. I was out of state for a while and could not follow the politics.
    I am surprised to hear Guy is the Deputy for uwp, what a disgrace, you mean to tell me uwp cannot attract any new blood? Wow
    As far as I am concerned, uwp is the caused of this 2.5% levy. They misused the fund they had and now they are talking. They gave 7.3 million for no vaccine, 30 million to Locker B, 54 million to Panama, 24 million to Sandals, borrowed 863 million and we cannot see where it went to , if ass this money was put into good use there will be no use for the 2.5 %.

  3. i have a question. Why is it called Health and Citizens security levy and i am mainly stressing on the health part. does any one know

  4. but desmond, i guess guy has more experience than any new blood that would come and he is in a better position to fit the job.
