Sinckler delivers Christmas goodies to constituents

Five hundred households in the St Michael North West constituency enjoyed some early Yuletide cheer yesterday.

Parliamentary representative for the constituency and Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler and his team delivered 500 hampers to several residents.

The packaging started from as early as 4.30 a.m. at the old St Stephen’s Primary School and from approximately 7.30 a.m. the MP and his helpers made their way through the constituency, starting from Deacons and travelling through Fernihurst, St Stephen’s, Danesbury, Brandons, and the surrounding areas.

The hampers contained vegetables, fruits, can foods, cereals, dry goods, detergents, drinks, and other items.

Last Saturday,  Sinckler held a children’s party at the Desmond Haynes Cricket Ground in Black Rock attended by hundreds . Many received laptops, smart phones and a number of other electronic devices.

Constituents will again be treated when the St Michael North West branch of the Democratic Labour Party stages a social evening on Boxing Day. (PR)

    Good xmas cheer is one way to look at this initiative…….or, does this speak to the fact that 500 families are finding things extremely difficult within his constituency; can this be attributed to poor management of his own ministry????????

    Some bajans so ingrunt, it aint funny. Every year ALL POLITICIANS do this in their respective constituencies at Christmas time and no one says anything. All of a sudden now sain wrong with Sinckler doing what he does annually at Christmas time and it tied to the next general elections that aint happening until 2018.

    Mia and her crew have big Christmas parties too. I pity some of yall.

    I wish that some of us would just take a break. Look go and enjoy the season and give wunna minds a rest. Go and see what yall cud do to help someone less fortunate for a change and stop focussing on what someone else is doing.

    Sick of the constant political bilge.

        I am so sorry for YOUR TYPE who behaves as though you never saw a classroom in your life and walks around with undeveloped minds spewing nonsense. It is obvious that you are heavily influenced by politics, not me though.

        When you grow up and attain some level of maturity you can come back. When you get up off your lousy, nitpicking, useless tail and go and make a difference in the society you can come back. Until then keep frothing at your mouth.

        I don’t need a hamper or handouts from anyone. My cup is overflowing and I am drinking from the saucer. I grew up with parents who ensured that our family was never in need. They taught us the value of hard work and independence and that legacy still resonates with me to this day. Never in my life have I had to ask or take anything from any politician; Bs nor Ds, thank God!!!

        Do like me, take some of what you have and go out on the street on Christmas morning and share with the less fortunate and see the joy on their faces. Doing such is far better and more rewarding than showing your idiocy in the blogs.

    MP Sinckler has been doing this for some time. No elections ain’t coming. He salary big; he ain’t got to tief. Furthermore a rolling fixed deposit at First Citizens or the credit union, etc would make him a millionaire by now. A pity Bajans would not get educated about this kind of stuff and take their money from the banks that carrying them for a ride. I wonder if they have any fixed deposits for the people of Bim? Seems not; ’cause we broke.

Politicians give a few hampers to the needy in their respective areas 500 is a vote buying exercise or he know he has made people so poor that he could buy and get the vote. Time longer than twine.

    Chris Sinckler should be ashamed to purchase 500 pep bottles of soft drinks (soda) for his constituents. Last I heard this same Chris Sinckler started taxing the said product to discourage consumers from purchasing them because of the high sugar content. I guess the Pine Hill Diary didn’t have any Sorrel, Passion Fruit or Guava drinks available for bulk purchase to a politician.

    Am I the only one that thinks that this looks really bad on a nation the had achieved development status on the world human development index of nations. 500 households to which you have to give handouts, shouldn’t they be able to afford the LITTLE of what is in these baskets? The aim of the government is to provide an environment/economy/society where people can afford to take care of themselves, where even citizens who work for the least can still enjoy a good standard of living without having someone having to literally give them food to eat. I will continue to pray for a government whose goal is not to have poor people and who realises the inter-connectivity and the relations that exist between labour, capital, business, society, economy, management and vision. For those you will be receiving hampers, enjoy and I pray that your circumstances become better.

    Oh that the Minister was as effective in managing the country’s finances as he seemingly is in managing that of his constituency since the constituency seems to have money and enough to spare in getting laptops smartphones and these other devices plus 500 hampers, and more goodies to come. On the other hand government finances seemingly always in mess; austerity measures reigning, taxes high, unemployment over 10 % and income tax and vat rebates still outstanding. Though am glad for the recipients Something seems really wrong with this picture and we may be fooling if we choose to believe otherwise.
