The minister was responding to a journalist’s question regarding concessions on sanitation equipment that businesses import to get their establishments in compliance with government regulations.

  1. The minister is right. This is the time to tighten the reigns on concessios, and it must be done across the board, everybody being treated the same. It is good to see men and women of this calibre in the leadership. These are hard times, and we must all tighten our belts, from the top down. No exceptions.

  2. The ramen incident: I have decided to remain anonymous to protect my identity from the foolishness. last night, I became hungry and decided to make some ramen. I removed the various packets from the bowl, added the flavor and vegetables, then put the bowl in the microwave. After about a minute or two, I realized something was wrong. A terrible burning smell had filled my kitchen. I opened the door to my microwave and…low and behold…I had neglected to add water. There was some smoke coming from the bowl. Not wanting to waste the ramen, I went to the sink and added water, which filled the room in acrid smoke for several seconds. I then returned the bowl to the microwave and cooked it for two more minutes before attempting to eat it. Well….It went okay for a little while, until I discovered a globule of blackened noodles which had turned into some sort of strange crystalline substance yet seen in nature by humankind. I had a change of heart[url=””].[/url]

    • What the heck are you talking about? What are you somokin’. Chups. What has this got to do with the subject????

  3. Ok Mr Melford Nicholas, fine. So now explain why your government continue to fight Mr G and gone parliament to pass laws to take away the property that you illegally occupy with your branch office. The man voted ALP all his life and still being treated in that manner.???????.

  4. Really Melford,
    You downright malicious, vindictive specimen. You go to Parliament to rob a man of his property. Property that you didn’t pay rent for. There is not a hell hot enough for low life like you.
    God nar sleep

  5. To this day, not a single govt minister has offered to take a cut in salary yet the rest of us are expected to.

    The bullshit continues. Nothing but creative enrichment schemes running behind the scenes. Keep on voting for the same money sucking scum and our nation will continue sinking into the beyond.

    Where are the persons who ordered the hit on Nigel Christian? Did he discover who “forged” the signatures?

  6. Concession is a dirty word. Only when it involves the ordinary Citizens. Who cannot afford to give kickbacks under the table. Melford,is Yida going to be removed from that dirty word lists?
