Birds Of A Feather

Will someone please get Peter Permell off my television screen? Many moons ago I wrote about the other TV ‘hong’ Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj who I just couldn’t seem to get away from. Now, a failed politician and a failed financial manager have come together to berate the government – and by extension, taxpayers – for ‘their’ money. Seriously? And just in case you think this is the first time Peter Permell is making noise about losses in an investment, try to remember his recent cries on the BWIA matter. He failed there too…

Now I am of a serious mind to form an Anti CLICO/HCU Interest Group because these people are crying as if the government owes them a refund of their losses. If the government is guilty of anything, it is sitting on their fat asses and not putting the requisite controls in place to regulate things like this, but they have been doing that for years – no matter which political party is in power. They are all guilty of taking ‘campaign’ cheques from CLICO…

So let’s talk about me and my beef with this government on the CLICO issue… The government owes me money for work done – not a bailout – for work done and they had the audacity to devote one line regarding this debt in the 2010/2011 budget – one line. How much attention did CLICO get? Three pages and HCU got one… You want to talk about insult Peter? Here’s my one liner – “We have started putting measures in place to meet these commitments” Not very encouraging is it Peter? And unlike you who are speaking for people who can invest a minimum of $75,000 I have to worry about finding money to pay workers who don’t have $75,000

So Peter and Ramesh, get off your soap box and shut up. Thank the lord for small mercies that at least someone is working to see if your investments can recover through diligent management of assets (not a fire sale) unlike your advice to clients in putting money in a questionable investment vehicle. And come to think of it, why haven’t I heard you mention Duprey or any of his lieutenants’ names? Madoff made jail, Stanford made jail – why are you not targeting the people who scammed you?

We all have money problems because of the mismanagement and wastage of the previous administration, Peter. You are not doing any favours for your members by crying everyday to be at the head of the line. Po’ people like us will think that people like you always want to be at the top of the heap, no matter what. And once public opinion goes against you and your group – and it has started – crapaud smoke your pipe. Then the government will be even less inclined to help you out. Oh, and lastly, never ever give the head of government a deadline – you lost that battle as soon as the words came off your lips.
