Opposition Leader Jamale Pringle is calling for the Nation to take a stand against the Gaston Browne Administration because of its lack of empathy for those struggling during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Residents have been calling for a stimulus package to assist the needy and most vulnerable persons, many of whom have lost their jobs. But Browne says this will be considered only after the pandemic has cleared.
Accordingly, Pringle says the Government’s action is unconscionable.
Pringle says he believes the Government has enough finances to assist, but is refusing to spend it to ease the burden on the people.
While some citizens have declared the Government is broke, others say it is not possible.
They point to the revenues brought in by the Citizenship by Investment program; the resources that NAMCO has accrued; and the fact that Government has completed no major project in six years, and speculate that the Browne Administration is simply hoarding public funds for other purposes.
