We the innocent, led by the unknown, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful!
We have done so much with so little, so we are now qualified to do anything with nothing!

Opposition presentations speaks of a group in disarray with no agreed position & no coherent policy position-Singh
Speaking during the conclusion of the Budget 2011 debate in parliament last night Finance Minister Ashni Singh in a part of his presentation directed at the opposition said, “Notwithstanding much of what you said was disagreed with and debunked by this side of the House, I will say that I thank you for your contributions, particularly because of the manner I regard the opportunity of the debate in the democracy. It is an occasion like few others for members of the House to outline for the nation their assessment and their view of regional development, how they shape opportunities, the macro-economic stance by Government, and to proffer alternative plans as an alternative government, and the policies to realize that vision.”
“We did not hear anything of the kinds of things we would in a serious debate. To those members who did make suggestions, I will say to those members thank you, and I will [advise the members on this side of the House to listen],” he said.
The Minister said that Corbin gave an assemblage of incoherent, belligerent, opportunistic misrepresentations, instead of offering credible arguments of what he thought should be done differently.
Referring to the trend he observed over the last days, the minister said that there is a serious contradiction in saying that the budget is an elections budget and that it had nothing for anybody.
“This hodgepodge speaks of an opposition in disarray, no commonly agreed position, no coherent policy position,” he said.
He added it is important for the people to see and draw their own conclusions. “It is important that these responses be put on public display. I thank members of the Opposition for disclosing their state of affairs,” he said.
