Gov't announces 500 housing development program

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas has announced the Independence 30 500 housing development program. “The honorable Dr. Asim Martin… will be announcing very shortly Independence 30 500 housing development program for the benefit for our people here in St. Kitts and Nevis,” Dr. Douglas said. He hinted that this program could benefit single men in the country who are living in sub-standard houses with poor facilities. 

The St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party leader was speaking at a public meeting on Central Street in Basseterre Friday night. Dr. Douglas did not go into details of this housing development but stressed that the program will benefit those who need proper housing. “Some of you will be vexed when you see a PAM people in a house, don’t get vex…we know wah we doing,” he declared. 

Meanwhile the prime minister made a case for his party to be elected in the next election and for constituents of Central Basseterre to support the incumbent Labour MP Marcella Liburd. “This government naw discriminate; this government not like PAM,” he said. “My conscience is clear and that is why I will make sure that in Central Basseterre Jonel Powell gets the whooping of his life from Marcella Liburd.”

I commend the idea of new homes being constructed however, I think the statement about PAM people is unnecessary. Everyone in SKB pays taxes, and we shouldnt discriminate because of party preference. Jesus died so ALL can come to repentance. The rain falls on the just and unjust so who is man to tell people that they can't have this or that because they do not support you? Shame on you Douglas, you have been weighed and found wanting, the clock is ticking away and your time draweth nigh. Take heed and repent and ask for forgiveness, you might be taken seriously.

It is amazing that some of us want to continue to commend leaders who take wrong and want to make it right. There is no way 17% VAT, and 85% increase in electricity bill can be beneficial to the citizens, regardless to what party does it, be it PAM, SKN Labor, NIP, or PLP. If cost of living goes up, and income stays constant, then purchasing power decreases. Sadly some people like to try to defy logic with Voodoo Economics.

Well elections are due and anything from the playbook of DD is given priority.Houses for everybody,even if one cannot afford to pay for them.No need to worry though I have complete control of SIDF money,so SS and NBank can have a break.It would be interesting reading the auditors'report on the status of the accounts for the National Housing Authority.Quite a roundabout way to create a full welfare state.

This is a case of Longevity cultivating Tyranny, and this is the reason term limit is imperative for Prime Ministers. Most important, people want to make living wages, instead of most people just existing on an illusion of living a good life. When electricity and cost of living are so high, how many of these recipients will be able to pay for their houses, still pay their utilities and other bills. Instead of just wanting to cry because of the high electricity cost, reduce it. Also, reduce the Voter Appreciation Tax (VAT).
