Jus wonderin – August 15, 2014

Jus wonderin if it is true they did a scan of the Premier’s heart and found an icebox instead.

Jus wonderin who rememba five years ago one week before elections TMR publish wan stoary pon Samuel Joseph, fus Muntserratian fu obtain PhD in a physics.

Jus wonderin if e a go be now de fus wan fu contest a seat wey two o dem plan fu tek over a member’s ministry in de same party.

Jus wonderin who all dem dead people wey name pan de voters list a go vote fa.

2009

Jus wonderin if domestic violence stops at the physical and whether the drunkards need a representative.

Jus wonderin if telling the truth is considered to be in bad taste, eh!

Premier utters

Jus wonderin if the following recent statements by the Premier are meaningful:

* “We are at a point where we should be in a position to move beyond where we are, still looking at the three-year time frame.”
* “The PIU is governed by the relevant and applicable laws of Montserrat.”
* “We are a welcoming people; so, don’t see our Montserratians who had to go overseas for a range of reasons-one of which is volcanic-that in fact, when they come back, we can’t appreciate them.”
* “The budgetary aid mission is done twice a year, basically to review the performance of government of Montserrat in relation to its budgetary performance and to be monitored on the basis of some monitoring indicators. It is not one where you are negotiating for money.

… The capital program, for the first time, was included in detail in this meeting.

..  Normally we negotiate the capital program separately.. We are hoping that

.. by the mid-March that we will have an aid memoire from them basically indicating, from their side, what they have agreed to do and indicating as well what they are expecting of us to take forward the finalization of the negotiations.”

The poor and disabled

Jus wonderin, is the recently announced $120 increase to $720 in monthly social welfare payment for 160 disabled recipients the fulfilment of MCAP’s promise to the elderly, the physically and mentally challenged “to ensure coverage of the cost of a basic food basket”?

Jus wonderin, is $720 per month today not equivalent to less than $600 eight years ago?

Jus wonderin, what does a basic food basket cost today, if a DFID study did not say it is over $1500.00.

Jus wonderin what that means to the ordinary resident in Montserrat.

Jus wonderin if those who who wrote these Jus Wonderins obsessed with exposing the perversity of MCAP or just doesn’t understand words read or heard.

Jus wonderin if the Speaker of LegAss only hears considered infractions from her left.

Jus wonderin if MCAP never asked questions or criticized government when they sat on the opposition bench.

Jus wonderin why the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee just lay their report for 2004-2009 on the table of the Legislative Assembly without explanation or comment.

Jus wonderin why when I check the Gazette for details of SR&Os, as advised by the premier, all I find are their number and name.

Jus wonderin why de 2014 Gazette full of appointment notices going back to 2009.

Jus Wonderin – August 1, 2014

Jus Wonderin if it is true that QC also among other things stands for Quiet Children.

Jus wonderin if de premier worthy of his nickname, Twisty.

Jus wonderin, should I vote for a violent drunk and bully to represent me because people say he’s (some kind of) an eloquent speaker?

Jus wonderin, is slapping children part of MCAP’s education strategy to improve students’ oral reading skills?

Jus wonderin if the Premier understands what he reads and how government works.

Jus wonderin why Reuben insists that he can just go out and borrow money when every Appropriation Act passed under his administration restricts borrowing unless approved by a UK Secretary of State and the Montserrat Legislative Assembly.

Jus wonderin whether Kato and Reuben both telling the truth about MDC tendering of the four Little Bay Marine Village bars when Reuben says: “No, in the case of Little Bay, that is a direct labour; it’s not a tender process; direct labour” while Kato says MDC issued tenders for labour only contracts which all came in over budget.

Jus wonderin whether telling the public that when the Premier was chief minister the first time, he admitted he received travel allowance while driving a government vehicle is character assassination or an indication of his integrity.

Jus wonderin, is it okay to steal if I say I give away the proceeds to people in need.

Jus wonderin if knowingly buying stolen property is unlawful.

Jus wonderin, is it criminal intent or bad judgement when an economist buys a car for $44,000 that he knows is worth at least $145,000 and goes to court to try to defend it?

Jus wonderin if MCAP is soft on crime and setting a good example when its leader tells the public:  “there was also a member of parliament who illegally went in and took out metal from government buildings in Plymouth and used his parliamentary privilege to ship two, at least one container load of metal out of Montserrat without appropriate permissions.  In some jurisdictions that would be called theft.  We left it alone.”

Jus wonderin, how diligent is the MCAP administration about following legal processes and being truthful?

Jus wonderin, is a cash bonus the same as a pay increase?

Jus wonderin if civil servants will fire the MCAP leader for derailing the budget proposal for a consolidated civil service pay increase from 1 April 2014.

Jus wonderin, what is a consolidated civil service pay increase?

Jus wonderin, why is DFID punishing civil servants for the premier’s actions?

Jus wonderin who feel DFID still have confidence in the MCAP administration?

Jus wonderin if guvment a lie when dem tell DFID dey a go reduce the public service headcount to 955 full-time equivalents, o dem a lie to a-we when dem say dey no send nobody home.

Jus wonderin if GoM’s outsourcing exercise didn’t “result in the removal of 31 staff or 13.5 FTE (Full-time equivalent) from the public service payroll, reducing GoM FTE posts from 972 in 2012 to 959” and that “a further 7 FTE posts would be deleted, reducing the number of FTE posts to 952.”

The Public Service

Jus wonderin if GoM also assured DFID that “Further reductions through the planned GoM organisational review and outsourcing [Elderly Care, Cleaning Services (Phase 2), Security, Ministry of Agriculture Nursery Operations, and Laundry Services] initiatives should provide opportunities to reduce this [staff] further.”

Jus wonderin, how much money did Treasury collect for the disposal of the yellow school buses sporting “H” license plates?

Jus wonderin if the premier’s edicts are acts of law.

Jus wonderin if any SR&Os and resolutions from 2009 to 2014 missing from the Attorney General Chambers’ website.

Jus wonderin when the Legislative Assembly authorised the Premier to give away public property to Caribbean Metal Pro Ltd and other scrap metal scavengers.

Jus wonderin when LegAss approved the write-off of public property in the unsafe zone.

Jus wonderin, is a letter or agreement signed by the Premier a cabinet paper, like the one giving Caribbean Metal Pro Ltd permission to take away scrap metal from government buildings in Plymouth.
Jus Wonderin, isn’t it the governor who signs and assents to cabinet decisions.

Jus wonderin, has anybody found where in the Public Administration Act it says that “when hiring, Montserratians must be given priority in all forms of employment”.

Jus wonderin if the credit MCAP taking for reducing the employment rate from 13.7% in 2006 to 6.5% in 2011 is because they streamlined the economy through a 10% reduction in the labour force from 3,006 persons in 2006 to 2,718 in 2011 though the total population was the same.

Jus wonderin what happened to the 288 persons who disappeared from the labour force between March 2006 and May 2011 – wey dem gone?

Jus wonderin if the 53 employed persons who disappeared from the work force between 2006 and 2011 all retired, died or relocated overseas and what happened to the other 235 people.

Jus wonderin wha de unemployment rate in 2011 hafu do wid today’s unemployment rate.

Jus wonderin, does anybody know what the unemployment rate was in 2012, 2013 or last month?

Government Housing

Jus wonderin if a true GoM handed back all the temporary wooden family units to the owners of the properties and if any ting go so, wha difference e mek  to de people who still a live in a dem.

Jus wonderin, who own the temporary family units at Drummonds and Davy Hill.

Jus wonderin, a no guvment who tell DFID that dem ha 400 persons on the housing waiting list and a no DFID who publish it in dem Aid Memoire?

Jus wonderin, why does government maintain a housing waiting list if they don’t intend to help people in need of decent affordable housing.

Just wonderin, why is housing benefit only for those 18 years and older who relocated from south of Belham.

Jus wonderin, is it only the Lookout Force 10 houses that have safety issues requiring urgent repair and rehabilitation.

Jus wonderin, did GoM and DFID turn a blind eye to all the previous housing stock condition surveys, especially the ones about the warden supported apartments?

Jus wonderin what caused the sudden deterioration of government’s housing stock since the not-too-long-ago pronouncement that there were no dilapidated houses owned by government.
Jus wonderin what are the other “potential liabilities for housing stock that is clearly below par whether currently in the public domain or divested.”

Premier utters

Jus wonderin if the following recent statements by the Premier are meaningful: * “We are at a point where we should be in a position to move beyond where we are, still looking at the three-year time frame.”
* “The PIU is governed by the relevant and applicable laws of Montserrat.”

Jus wonderin – July 26, 2013 :

Jus wonderin if people a behave demself now, dat awe no see no more maldow in dis column.

Jus wonderin if you know that an Emergency Family Plan will only work if everyone in the family knows their role.

Jus wonderin if you shouldn’t always keep enough food and water supplies in your home to meet the needs of your family for at least three (3) days.

Jus wonderin if you know it makes good sense to organize with your community how you will work together if an emergency strikes.  Sharing plans and strategies in advance can pay off.

Jus wonderin if it is not true that when TV and computer games no longer operate, board games or a deck of cards come in handy! Arts and crafts, crayons and downloadable colouring pages are always a great distractions for the kids – so make sure you’ve stored some of these supplies in your emergency packs.

Jus wonderin if you know a guy is gay when he goes to school, beach and shopping with different bags and different occasions, such as these.

Jus wonderin if he is also gay when he notices and only comments on the fashion a woman wears.

Jus wonderin if when one woman says, “I’m sorry,” she really saying, “You’ll be sorry,” or when she says, “Do wha you want,” she means, “You goin pay for it.”

Jus wonderin if we place a critical eye on the details, on quality, on excellence, on being better than any other, then there is no doubt that we will see growth.
