        Alvina was a health and family life teacher, she went back to school for that. So she had an idea about health. Mary issac worked with the unions.

      Even thoughyou have more ministers the cost is much lower than 14 ministries, a minister is just one salary and that of his secretary….but a ministry comes with an entire list of staff, from ps to dps, to accountant, secretaries , drivers, etc. So this approach is much cheaper than having 14 individual ministries

    SMH, Jobs for the Boys and Girls
    So, VAT is off the Table I see. Where are they going to get money to pay all those ministers. Because they’ve increased in great numbers.

    Zot Kai Tan!

      small matters. Labour people worry about such titles. The constitution does not address this as far as I am aware so in reality its a non exist-ant title created for convenience. Mallet never Insisted on being called such although he was regarded as such, the only person I know insisted on being addressed as such was Mario. PIP seemed to have accepted the title but I am not sure I ever heard him make fuss about being addressed as such. In the King & Lewis administration I don’t even thing such existed, but on that I may be wrong.

    Um, I am trying to understand why the public is paying the wage of contestants who failed to win their seat, surely they are supposed to now go away and find work, and Oh, Dr Raymond…., tut, tut, tut.

    Um, why are those contested who failed to win a seat employed by the public, I thought it was normal that those who fail to win sought work outside of politics. Ooh, and Dr Raymond, tut, tut, tut …..

    All I see is duplication of ministries/ministers . for one, doesn’t economic growth and development come together?
    Can someone please explain to me whether these ministers will be replacing the role of permanent secretaries?

    Please do not slam me.. I just want to know more about this new structure.
