Better Governance For Montserrat

Better Governance For Montserrat

TMR’s attention was drawn to this which reportedly appeared on Social Media with the request to ensure that our print readers do not miss it… 

As a visitor of Montserrat residing in the United States of America, it is with great disappointment and shame that I have opted to address the governance situation on the Emerald Isle of Montserrat. Since adopting Montserrat as my homeaway from home several years ago I have been following the happenings there on a frequent basis.

I read an article published by MNI Live which spoke to the termination of Dr. Fletcher (CHRO) a national of St. Lucia by the DG who I am reliably informed is from Montserrat but what I found interesting was the speed in which it was dissemminated by an independent media outlet.

Upon carrying out an investigation into the matter, quite a bit of collusion was uncovered which seemingly points to attempts to undermine the performance of Premier Donaldson Romeo’s governance. A high-ranking Officer targeted the distinguished Doctor to create mayhem against natives of the Emerald Isle to further create a discord regarding the Governance of Premier Romeo. It is believed that after the learned Doctor failed to carry out the wish and tug the line of the propagandists who are hell-bent on undermining the Government of Premier Romeo.

It is evident that Premier Romeo has taken a very different approach to that of his predecessor former MCAP leader Rueben Meade, in the process he has been able to impress upon the British Authorities to get renewed support which seemingly is to the dislike of some political opportunists.

My investigations also revealed that Dr. Fletcher wasn’t the first TC to be terminated in a rush but what is interesting to note is that on every occasion when the terminations were carried out by the Governor and the Deputy, Premier Romeo had travelled overseas on Government Business. He was never consulted or informed which must be deemed unacceptable.

Leader of the Opposition Hon. Easton Farrell Taylor claimed in his presentation on A Live Talk Show Program Aired Via ZJB that the Donaldson Romeo’s Goverment was prepared to terminate Montserratians from the Civil Service in preference to TC’S who are paid three and four times the amount in monthly salaries which could only be regarded as propaganda. Hon. Farrell Taylor is fully aware that the Salary for Dr. Lewis and the other TCs is negotiated by the DG and HR which the DG oversees. MP Farrell Taylor must be aware that the DG negotiated a salary superior to that of TC’S, as he is Chair of the Public Accounts committee so he can inform the public as to the salary the DG negotiated on her behalf.

It’s indeed appalling to see how some supposedly Black Conscious so called Politicians and Administrators are colluding with the British Agenda to stifle economic growth and progress for personal gain being fully aware of the treatment meted out to our Black Brothers and Sisters who journeyed to England in the WINDSONG ERA as well as the legislation that was recently passed in the British Parliament to further control its colonies.

Montserratians the world over, take stock of the British Parliamentarians attitude to you as a people, strong representation is the key, I urge you to support those who are prepared to represent your interest and rebuke those who are prepared to spread propaganda in an attempt to hoodwink the electorate for power and personal gain.
