Friends, it seems socialism has gone mad (27)! You realise the whole heap a promises that came from the mouth (14) of the orange boss (34)?

All of $100 billion (25) is being promised for small business operators. He did not say what amount of this money will be in grants, but I can guarantee you that if this is ever to come in force every one of these people in the informal economy will be pulled into the tax net.

But let us not forget the promise by a now dead (3) politician to remove tax on interest on saving accounts. When he won there were like a thousand reasons why it could not be done.

Yes, mi friend, a nuh all di time when politicians grin dem teeth (13) wid you, you must tek dem serious, 'cause most times — ask the green (16) side also — when promise mek pon platform dem nuh keep dem.

Why someone moving in such slow traffic on Hagley Park Road would kill a little puss (14)? The thing was crushed to nothing.

Well, friends, take care until we meet again.
