Wow, $10 million bail out for canefarmers?

How interesting.

What's around the corner I wonder?

Rail carts

Vishnu Mohan wants more cane to be delivered to the mills by rail.

The portable rails are very heavy and so are the rail trucks.

There are a lot of risks involved in carrying these portable rails and joining them and pulling the loaded carts to the main line.

Although it is cheaper, it is too labour intensive.

Sevens hope

Isa .... all we now have is hope as our gladiators get trampled and the world series title moves further away from our grasp.

Stay strong

Boys, the business in Paris is finished.

The one in London is coming.

Stay strong and focused.

No matter what, we will always be by your side.

Our very best wishes to you.

High rents

I just want to raise this issue about some landlords charging exorbitant rents on their properties.

I thought there was a residential rent freeze according to the Government gazette. But looking through the papers we see that even a one bedroom flat is $600-$700 per month.

I would like to ask those in authority to please look into this.

We, the working people, just cannot afford the high cost of rent these days.

Even nowadays the cost of living is rapidly going up, but the working class are suffering while others benefiting.

Please, I ask again to look at the problems we are facing right now about the high cost of rents.



Changing times

Good to read that four major pieces of legislation are being overhauled by the Ministry of Employment because they contain laws of the colonial era, which do not suit today's changes.

While at it can we look at other laws that belong to the colonial era?

Let's not find out the hard way when something comes up and suddenly find ourselves in problem because of outdated laws.
