    I cannot wait to see what will be said when he meets with farmers. I cannot wait to hear what will be said when he meets with the agricultural department and the workers. The government is shifting people around, I wonder when they will shift around the Chief Agricultural Officer, Mr. Bevin Brathwaite.

      They won't move him cause he's a Lodge Man just like the one at BVIEC and HSA!

        I heard that also but did not want to say it. The thing is God is the ultimate decider. But your saying if that is the case then their must be persons in the new government who is also a part of the lodge. WOW! My eyes are beginning to open if this is the case. I have heard of the many injustices that is taking place up there and the people are scared to open their mouths- From the Deputy down to Supervisors of divisions to the lowest paid are scared... God help us all. God hear their cries and do attend unto their needs.
