Mister Attorney General - Another week another citizen mauled by a pitbull. Please proclaim the Dangerous Dog Law now. With well over ninety per cent of all dog attacks and almost one hundred per cent of fatalities due to dog attacks in this country due to pitbull terriers, the argument against breed specific legislation becomes more porous and vexing everyday. You know, I know, even the pitbull owners and breeders know that the only reason we or any other country for that matter have dog laws is to regulate this breed and its derivatives, so could you please engage in some form of real leadership and do the right thing?
Mister Transport Minister - Make sure that the traffic wardens are out in force from six to nine on mornings at all traffic hotspots and intersections to guide traffic and discourage offenders. Reintroduce a highway patrol on all the nations highways and main thoroughfares to encourage road users to obey the law; work with your counterpart in the Ministry of Works to erect concrete dividers on all medians; move all road repair work to after 8:00 p.m. at night, and introduce a 'watershed' or peak traffic period (6:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.) during which heavy transport vehicles may not use the road to alleviate congestion.
Mister Agriculture Minister - Plant food. Everywhere. Fruit trees and vegetables on every square inch of State land and make it available to the public. Make fruit and vegetable plants available to the public at peppercorn prices to encourage the creation of home and public gardens to reduce the cost of living and the impact of the food bill on foreign reserves.
Mister Minister of Health - Set private sector deliverable standards for public sector health institutions, staff and equip them accordingly and get out of the way.
Mister Minister of Education - Begin the work of making all schools ten year schools to build esteem in children, continuity in the system, excellence in education and reduced traffic. Remove the name 'secondary' from the system altogether and rename all schools currently branded as such 'colleges.' This simple act would go a long way toward increased morale both in pupils and teachers and would translate to greater success where it is needed most.
Mister Finance Minister - Rein in those rapacious banks whose policies are driving inflation upwards and pauperizing the people. Set a formula to peg earnings and the minimum wage to bank profits so as to realign those profits with reality. Take steps to reduce the barriers to lending for small entrepreneurs, provide restroom facilities for customers (especially our elderly), and encourage the removal of some of those advantages nuisance charges.
Mister Housing Minister - Work with your colleague in FInance and strive to make it possible for all to OWN a home, rather than rent or borrow one from the state. Use State owned financial institutions to provide a facility where first time home owners can access loans up to five hundred thousand dollars at zero deposit zero interest terms, making it possible for two minimum wage earners to still own a home and provide for their family. This will rebuild the family and help to reduce crime.
As said earlier these suggestions could go a long way toward improving the quality of life in this country, and as implementation of most comes at little or no cost, I hope common sense prevails. Last but by no means least, Mister Minister of National Security – For the country's reputation both regionally and internationally, to help undo the belief that crime pays in this country and just to do the right thing by everybody, resign.
