CHECKING AND BALANCING DEM FELLAS
For decades before the Revolution, taxes on motor vehicles had remained fixed at a bearable level. Then Bernard Coard changed the formula to yield additional revenues. With more in the Treasury, he was able to pay the PRA and the many social programmes of the Revo. It's 2017, and Coard is still rolling on our roads in every vehicle you see and hear! Having left the formula un-checked; having failed to re-balance revenue collection, we lament that vehicles are cheaper in St Vincent than in Grenada.
