Promises or delivery?

"Outside of those three areas, those of us who are familiar with the annual budget exercises would have recognise all the clichés, the CNGs, the small businesses, the agriculture comments," he said, adding there was absolutely nothing directional about the budget or a change of direction.

After I read this statement, I recognised the clichés too. Seems these are some of the promises also made by the PNM over the years and which have never had delivery. I mean, for years people have been begging for help in various sectors, and for years the PNM ignored them and kept going with other, more grandiose plans.

Maybe it’s time we give a new government a chance to deliver – even if it is the same promises.
