LEADER of the Opposition, Dr. Gale Rigobert is calling on Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony to deliver the policy correctives that would steer the economy back to a level of buoyancy, when he makes his budget get statement to the House of Assembly later today.

“The onus is on the Prime Minister to provide the policy correctives to problems regarding unemployment which is hovering around 25 percent and the closure of small businesses, among other things,” Rigobert said.

The Micoud North parliamentary representative also referred to foreign investment landscape in light of the Lambirds Academy affair and the impact this may have on the country’s ability to attract foreign investors.

In suggesting that the government provides some relief to Saint Lucians this fiscal year Rigobert referred to the 15 percent VAT that she says is causing a problem to the economic health of the people, a tax she said that was instituted at the wrong time since the economy then was in a tailspin.

She spoke of a proposed fuel surcharge on electricity and the taxing of vehicle licensing which she says would cause further hardship on the people.

“There is a proposed fuel surcharge on LUCELEC and as I understand it, I don’t have the finer details as yet, but we know that any time any agency, or organization is taxed that they really pass it on to the consumer. So the inevitable outcome of the increase in the fuel surcharge could very well mean that electricity charges could go up, except LUCELEC decides to absorb that difference. Similarly with motor vehicle license fees, some of them are said to be increased by 100 percent,” Rigobert said.

  1. Why is this impersonator so displeased with herself that she shaves her head bald? I used to shave my face as practiced by Christian men who enjoy looking like women and boys having no facial hair. That turned out to be a burdensome. Task, so I grow my beard the way Allah intended for the male of the humans.

    How dove Gail manage to shave this humongous head daily? Half an hour everyday? That’s 183 hours of her life each year shaving her head ? Then add another half hour to paint her humongous face and lips ? This impersonator should be charged by Chastnet with WASTING HER MASTER’S TIME AND PROPERTY.

  2. Son-of -a-man?
    You are only jealous. She is prettier than you and have solid brains in that big head. Lovely teeth and smile. Don’t you wish???

  3. St. Lucians need to grab unto this cocoa business opportunity and grow an abundance of cocoa in the hills and valleys. The strength of the British pound will guarantee a good return on investment, the timing may be right to move from the capital cities and return to the farms and highlands to put food on the tables once again. Crop production will be the way to go, there are calls for coconut products; including coconut oil, soaps etc, bananas, fruits are all in demand, let us not abandon Agriculture for Tourism just yet but why not have both, The tourist have to eat, therefore, the hotel will purchase your crops without hesitation.

    May God supply all your needs according to his riches in glory, everything you put your hand to will be blessed.

  4. Virgil,

    The woman was very beautiful, until she underwent testosterone treatment to change her gender. She has toned down the bood-red lip color, and her lips are almost perfect, but that bald headed woman? That’s too close to homosexuality, yet again that is better than the fake hair_wigs, and rope-weaves worn by some of our crazy women.

    TOM TOM said I had made many enemies talking about the bogus naked god, now I’m done – talking about the crazies wit
