One of the Democratic Labour Party Government’s prized capital works projects has come to a screeching halt.

Work on the long awaited St John Polyclinic and adjoining facility that is slated to bear the name of late Prime Minister and long-standing Member of Parliament for the parish, David Thompson, has been stopped due to a serious cash flow problem in central Government.

According to reliable sources, the project’s main contractor, ADC Building and Maintenance, was owed almost $3 million before the red light was put up by Government.

    Unbelievable! We are broke because Owen Arthur and his gang spent it all.

    And Mara Thompson reported in the press as wanting some “alleged” caves under some church in St. John developed like Harrison’s Cave.

    De LORD doan like ugly!
    What a tragedy the selling of their souls by the s.e.x sellers and the buyers!
    For a piece o’ property
    a piece o’ prestige
    a piece a prominence, influence an’ popularity
    in a world that is passing away.

    Politics has devolved into pop culture like pursuits
    serious and sober governance abandoned
    as narciccism and self absorption render all reason obliterated.

    If Adrian Christie was so stupid to let the Gov’t debt accumulate to $3M before pulling the plug, he needs to have his head examined and deserves to be robbed by them…just like everybody else. There is a price for sucking up and ignoring the facts, Adrian. Seems like you’re gonna pay it.
