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.
