Thank you. God blessing.

As you said Afra, the poor count only at elections, and there are enclaves of ‘sure seats’ like Belmont where I live, that are PNM and UNC. The marginal constituencies are somewhat pampered if you consider that there are distinctions between them. The point is that we fail as a nation to insist that our leaders lead us forward. The media and commerce make us consume junk and keep us poor. Many single women have to consort with ruthless men in order to feed the mouths of those not fathered by the ruthless bunch. Housing is not on their agendas anymore because feeding consumes the little they earn.
We put people first, ‘to be executed like sitting ducks’ is left out of the PNM motto. 2020 appears to be a repeat of all those past. When will it end?
