  1. JUST SAYING when do they listen after the fact? They must have consultations and listen before the fact. By doing this they will stop making so many foolish and outrageous decisions.

  2. What you are going to Parliament to try and do now.That should have been done before that damn ACT was pass.By the way Gaston Browne,how come the people who elected you and your gang into Parliament were not consulted in this matter of the Western Economic Zones? I have already put you on notice.My land is not for sale to anyone.If you were to try and take it by eminent domain,the Courts would settle that.

  3. Public Consultations to Town-hall and Community Meetings should be a MUST, even to putting the issue to a vote on the ballot.
    We need Mid Term Elections to address these issues publicly, have them placed on a ballot, and decided at the ballot box!

    All are affected, by these types of large scale developments.

  4. They want a vote for ccj but make some foolish decisions without proper consultations and informing the public, they know what they are getting, they keep selling out and have the heart to celebrate independence, hypocrites!

    A government that cares
    For their pockets only
