Opposition leader calls on Premier Romeo to resign

Mr  Easton Taylor-Farrell

leader the Hon. Easton Taylor Farrell has been leading the questions and criticisms of the current Donaldson Romeo led Peoples Democratic Government (PDM) calling on him to, “consider taking the high road of decency and tender his resignation…”

Farrell before his recommendation expressed his concern that, “Three years into the life of this parliament – this government has nothing to show, as a matter of fact their action have pushed the countries development back between ten to fifteen years…”

He explained, “Some of these projects and systems were agreed to by our major funding partner DFID, while others were designed to attract foreign direct investment hence the reason for the Montserrat Development Co-operation (MDC). An institution set up and funded by DFID for eight years to play a key role in the development trust for Montserrat.”

The Opposition leader was speaking at the recent Legislative Assembly as he continues with what one commentator says to TMR, should be fact checked, especially that it is coming out of LegAss.

“This madam speaker was closed down with advisement of this administration. The project implementation unit set up to ensure government projects were delivered on time and within budget and to ensure that monies for projects were not left unspent year after year but this too was closed by this administration. But as shown by the government’s performance over the three years, probably there was no need for the project implementation unit after all,” Hon Farrell said.

He continued by drawing comparison between his MCAP, the previous government and present PDM regarding development on the ground. He spoke of how quickly they (MCAP govt) got housing moving by government and the private sector without any assistance from DFID…

He said, “the previous administration began rolling out projects, a vast difference to what we’re seeing today. Three years into the life of this parliament and this government has nothing to show, as a matter of fact their action have pushed the countries development back between ten to fifteen years.”

In conclusion he said, “Madam speaker If this government is unable to fulfill its mandate and if the Honorable Premier cannot assure the people of this country that he will be able to implement some of his transformation projects within the next year, my advice to the Honorable Premier madam speaker is that he should consider taking the high road of decency and tender his resignation…”

    Eastern should shut up and resign as well as he is just a waste of space
