Following the Premier’s pronouncements of the continuity of work creation in the construction field and later potential of fibre optics, opposition leader Donaldson Romeo a week ago, issued and published a statement in which he accused the Premier and his MCAP government of failing to improve the economy and the welfare of Montserrat residents.

“Montserratians are concerned about the state of the economy and bread on their table,” he said.

He continued negating the impact of the continuity of work in the construction field. “This is the third  week since school has opened and some parents still cannot find money to buy books needed for their children,” he informed, adding, “People need work and many are behind on their rent and loan payments.”

Romeo quotes ‘One leading retailer, ‘who asked him,’ “just the other day to let him know what the GoM is going to do about the state of Montserrat’s economy.  “The economy”, he said, “has never been so dead in a long, long time”.”

The opposition leader states that  “Monday, Sept 9th just past marked four years under the MCAP government led by our Hon Premier,   Mr Reuben T Meade;  four years in which they repeatedly told us we elected them to make decisions for us and apparently did not need to listen to the people.”

Romeo snidely notes that with Campaign fever is already in the air, “the MCAP government is suddenly on a roll to deliver important manifesto promises; promises they have mostly ignored for four whole years.”

He further notes, “But, election is coming, so for a while there is no longer the need to publicly disgrace civil servants and to put down its own people.  All of a sudden, it is now time to listen to the people and time for some nice sweet talk.”
