PM’S new ride

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has a brand new ride.

Amid all the talk about austerity, Stuart is now driving around in a sleek S-Class Mercedes Benz, fresh out of the Simpson Motors showroom at Warrens.

The S-Class is said to be valued at $350,000 duty free or over $700,000 inclusive of duties.

      The reason people are getting on is because the country is broke, his government just put crushing taxes on an already overtaxed population daybefore and they recently increased their own already high salaries by 10%, you’re not from here so maybe you don’t know what’s going on

    I will expect the new government to sell all of the high class vehicles are ride on the zr you fools. Look and see how many already drive BMWs and other high end vehicles! Nothing will change other than those who reap the sweets. The poor will continue to suffer for many years to come. I can already hear the excuses! We knew things were bad but we dI’d not know that they were this bad …. Sorry but you poor people gine have to continue to suck salt while we take the opportunity to take care of ourselves and our benefactors. The more things change the more they remain the same. The good thing is, no one person will have to bear the disappointment, there will be enough to go around.

    This is the very best thing Dumble could do if he wants to lose the next election is to have the taxpayer find another $700,000 for his new car. Even the yard fowls must be looking up from their corn-pecking in the dust to wonder how soon Farmer Fumble will run them down in his new ride.

    The nation 12 Billion in debt, but Crumble needs a car. It is obvious that THIS administration – like the one before it – “serve the people” only at their own pleasure.

    It is past time the people serve both the DLP and BLP politicians a meal of manure pie, sawdust and cow-pee at the next elections.

    In Canada a cabinet minister cannot spend more than $32K on an official car. Some don’t even take the car and chauffeur and prefer to ride their bikes to and from the Hill. It has to be a Canadian made car from Windsor or Oshawa, Ontario. No imports.

    Oh my people. It’s a mere inconvenience…… something like those lil ole potholes. It’s a fine story to tell those return vacation Canadians at one of his costly cocktail soirees. A little joke to share with them so they can laugh at us more. Then he’ll beg them to come again and bring their money. He may even offer them a FREE ride in his new wheels no Bajans welcome. Not to worry Barbados…. our Ministers are ok. Now isn’t that something positive. NO! I SAY SHAME. Boooooooooooooooo Booo Boo.

    It is time that Barbadians wake up and realise that politicians who care about people became extinct​ when Barrow die. The new generation of politicians are only interested in what they can get at the expense of the foolish voters. Wake Barbadians. Wake up!

    And when he gets kicked out of next year, he’ll keep the car & the new PM will buy another equally expensive tax payer funded ride. Expect other MP’s to do the same before the election.

    What would of been more appropriate would be to have instigated a party wide policy by purchasing an electric vehicle to promote Environment Awareness & protection.

    He can get with Simpson and bring legislation to stop poor man from bringing in cars and hit vehicles. As their sales down. Idren took his range (sports) to be serviced under warranty and for evaluation and you know those crooks devalued it so greatly and said they can’t service it under the warranty. They can service it if he pays?

    Ummmmm warranty? If it ain’t come from them they have nothing to do with it. Only in Bim. Any dealer any part of the world you can take your vehicle and hey presto stamp and delivered, Further investigation revealed that they are not registered dealers which came from the top, wow….had all we fooled. So a pure recon them ah pree and sell for lotto money. They said they can fix it as they have the technology due to diagnostics and such but he has to pay, blatant refusal to honour the warranty. Susuki of course but they are not Land Rover or jaguar dealers. Unless that’s changed. False advertising. Maybe they ironed the chinks out their armour but them ain’t no registered dealers. So you get with your drinking buddy to yet prevent poor people from etching a living in the recon market, watch this space. You are so right, probably not a new car but worth new car money. Only with threats of legal action, going to the press they bowed. Disgusting establishment. I will say it to all of you stop being a push over for these commercial conglomerics with the believe I poor and them rich. Use your poetic licence and the media carries more swag than we give it credit for.

    Be careful, you can’t trade the devil for Satan
