Jus wonderin if the Government ministers going to diaspora don’t see that all them doing is instead of begging the outside haves they begging just de same in diaspora rather than telling them to organize to help the needy and jobseekers right where they are.

Jus wonderin if the UK government believes Montserrat can ever be viable based on the outcomes of our “historic connections” with the “mother country”.

Jus wonderin if the UKG’s policies on Montserrat, as reflected by their actions and timing, are only designed to enable us to barely survive and that’s what they mean when they say “the Government remains committed to meeting the reasonable assistance needs of Territories where financial self-sufficiency is not possible, as a first call on the aid budget.”

Just wonderin whether Montserratians’ British citizenship status and that of other OT British citizens regarded as closer “kith and kin” is equally beneficial.

Jus wonderin how the stoppage, interminable reviews/second guessing, and other delays of essential projects (we thought were already approved) contributes to the recovery of our ailing economy or fulfils the White Paper’s “pledge of UK help when needed.”

Jus wonderin who bears ultimate responsibility, and why nearly 20 years after the onset of volcanic activity, Montserratians remain at significant risk from the hospital, secondary school, homes, government offices and public roads declared as unfit for purpose along with inadequate ports (air
and sea), et al.

Jus wonderin if the UK’s meaning of the phrase ‘help when needed’ is very different from most reasonable people’s interpretation.
Jus wonderin if and when the long-awaited 2015/16 Budget Aid Memoire stating the UKG’s financial commitments to GoM will be made public.
Jus wonderin (poor me) why it took me so long to realize that when PDM talked about “Putting People First – A Fresh Start” on the campaign trail, ‘people’ didn’t mean everybody and they literally meant starting from scratch and to hell with the immediate consequences.

Jus wonderin…Are we are putting psychopaths in positions of power where they can cause irreparable harm to the rest of us?

Jus wonderin if every politician, public officer, and directors and staff of government agencies (including commissions) ought to be assessed periodically and certified as to whether they are of sound mind and competent to fulfill their terms of employment.

Jus wonderin if all public service job candidates should be subjected to lie-detector tests.

Jus wonderin if we have any say in the selection or appointment of DFID or FCO personnel who influence what happens in Montserrat.

Jus wonderin how we know that the people DFID recruits are competent.

Jus wonderin if wondering is worthwhile.

Jus wonderin bout de mul employee with children who spend all she Time Out from till past midnight nearly every day.

It recommended the re-launching of MDC on the conditions of there being a concerted effort to recruit a CEO and senior staff, reconstitute the Board and improve governance. This, and other lessons learnt will inform any follow-on support to the MDC or similar institutional arrangements to ensure an integrated approach to developing Little Bay, improving the access infrastructure, promoting trade and FDI and providing advice and support to local businesses.”
Jus wonderin if a no true wa Di-fid say in a dem July 2014 Review of MDC dat:  “The reasons for slow uptake of FDI are two-fold. First, without upfront public commitment to port development it will be difficult to obtain private sector commitments. Second, MDC is hampered in its efforts to attract private sector investment due to the lack of an Economic Citizenship Programme (with resultant loss of potential investment estimated by MDC at $US 62.5 mln).”
Jus wonderin if D-fid no trus dem previous resident representative an dat dem a review evry ting de doc try fu do to help a we so a we a move backward.
Jus wonderin wa Di-fid ha fu hide ’bout dem involvement in a dee MDC.

Jus Wonderin – Septmber 8, 2014

Jus wonderin…. Should we help spread the wealth by voting in the new scamps in order to get rid of the old ones?

Jus wonderin if all nominated candidates should be professionally certified to ensure they meet all the qualifications required to stand for elections.

Jus wonderin if we have at least a hundred thousand (100,000) reasons to disbelieve certain candidates.

Jus wonderin…. Did Reuben resign as Director of Development to run for elected office or was his resignation due to the accusations arising from his effectiveness and efficiency in disposing of the sea-island cotton as well as his failure to provide a satisfactory explanation for being found in possession of a car he knew was stolen?

Jus wonderin if holding high office enhanced Reuben’s ability to dispose of valuable government metallic assets even more efficiently and effectively, without the consent of the Legislative Assembly.

Jus wonderin why none of the newly created scrap metal firms obtained a license to operate as required under the Old Metals and Marine Stores Ordinance.

Jus wonderin if it’s easier to avoid criminal conviction if you are government minister.

Jus wonderin if HMG wanted to abolish the right to trial by jury in the Montserrat constitution because they observed that jurors have delivered (as they put it) ‘perverse judgements’ in cases involving ministers of government, even when there’s overwhelming evidence of their guilt.

Jus wonder if GoM will try to recruit Reuben for the vital post of Chief Economist or if he should be left to spend his retirement engaging in his favourite hobby, construction work.

Jus wonderin…. Is it true that the most important natural resource for development is what lies between our ears and that it’s foolish to neglect it or take it for granted?

Jus wonderin if it’s true that rhetoric is about making what is worst appear to be the better.

Jus wonderin if a true wha sweet nanny goat hear poison e mind.

Jus wonderin if HMG dispenses aid based on the risk-of-embarrassment model, only rushing to partially fulfil the least-costly one from amongst their raft of strategically delayed promises when faced with shame like when the 19 people died on June 25, 1997 or the fatal and near fatal accidents involving Fly Montserrat, while the rest of their promises wither away slowly into nothingness.

Jus wonderin…. Will HMG will punish only me for making the above comment in spite of my plea to please leave the rest of our population out of it because unlike me, they are most grateful for HMG’s assistance?

Jus wonderin how long a we a go ha fu live wid de temporary evacuation docks at Little Bay and Heritage Quay?

Jus wonderin if Operation Exodus is still in active operation.

Jus wonderin what the status is on the $150,000 MDC invested in Fly Montserrat, the $500,000 MDC and GoM ($250,000 each) invested Twin Islands Ferry Service, and the unknown amount our Social Security Fund invested in the Davy Hill housing project.

Jus wonderin who started the colour thing (yellow, I think).

Jus wonderin how come when MCAP vilifies PDM it is considered to be positive and true but when PDM attacks MCAP’s record it is considered to be negative, divisive and character assassination.

Jus wonderin if we’ll ever receive balanced news reporting from the media so we hear what every political party and independent candidate has to say about whatever subject is being reported on.

Jus wonderin…. Considering all the divisiveness, abysmal performance,

flagrant lies, unrealistic promises, and unsubstantiated slandering being

delivered by most of our current crop of politicians and some want-to-be

politicians, should all those who cast a vote for any of them on September

11th be struck off the electoral roll on the ground of unsound mind!

Jus wondering if some politicians are praying to win their seats and then stamp their authority for leadership.

Jus wondering if they are playing dead to catch cobo.

Jus wondering if it is memory lost, being under the influence, maybe, home problems, job, election pressure or is he just a DAMN liar!

Jus wondering if it is another case of six years then pension why the man did not take over leadership.

Jus wondering if they can take another five years of being trampled on by the man they all complain about.

Jus wondering if some “politicians” study the art of misleading the people.

Jus wondering if it is too late now for prayers which is very close at hand to them.

Just wondering why the heavy roller did not run in the race.

Jus wondering if he was afraid of the truth about him or the lies that his partner in crime is capable of telling.

Jus wondering why are there so much lying and fabrication in the 2014 elections.

Jus wondering who is the main culprit.

Jus wondering who is sleeping with who, not sleeping with who and who beating up who, who putting up with and who leaving who, in that soap-like at the top behavior.

Jus wondering when the book will be published, or re-enactment put on screen.

Jus wondering if the battle lines are drawn for after the election wars.

Jus wondering why some politicians face is always swelling and shining like they took one too many.

Jus wondering Mr. Editor Sir, why they are so lie?

Jus wondering if it is because the Word is so close!

Jus wondering out of the Indians which nine will be really best for Montserrat.

Jus wondering if we will all have a party or a coalition government after elections.

Jus wondering who would like to bet me that we will have many chiefs and very few Indians.

Jus wondering if, the Primier knowing he is a liar, but, pretends he is not a liar, knowing full well that he is a liar, is a damn fool.

Jus wonderin – August 29, 2014

Jus wonderin if the malignant narcissist will ever get a chance to resurrect this line from his first budget speech:  “I know that there is a God because I am the one presenting this budget here today and not one of the members on the opposite side who’d be presenting a backward budget.”

Jus wonderin why MCAP’s #1 pledge in its 2009 Manifesto is:  “We pledge a new approach to leadership, with a team of strong, competent and compassionate leaders who reject ‘one-manism’ and embrace the concept of team spirit and shared responsibilities.”

Jus wonderin if there is a slight chance ‘one-manism’ could be construed as ‘shared responsibility’.

Jus wonderin if all dem oder minister demand some de MCAPlegislators love de one-manism so dat dem stap dey an a praise de king of one-manism.

Jus wonderin if a de one-manism a de same as dictata.
