Talk Fuh So

Mr. Barry Padarath, Opposition MP for Princes Town is just one of the many members of the Senate and House of Representatives of the past regime that invoiced for exorbitant monthly phone calls that have presented itself as a blatant disregard for tax payers dollars, as well as an abuse of power and the treasury between 2010 and 2015, with his invoice for phone calls being the highest.

The graph below shows a total number of 18 invoices from the last quarter of 2010 to the first quarter of 2015 with the highest invoices being $90,459.06 in February 2015 and $35,832.08 in January 2015.

Why was there not a reasonable base cellphone allowance offered to Senators and MPs where any breach of cost beyond this allowance would be incurred by such Senator/MP in order to effectively monitor these privileges?

    This is totally unacceptable, all MP’S should be given a certain amount of money to use on their phone, after it is used up, they should pay themselves.

    But when the minister’s phone was roaming and the bill came up high the opposition blasted her for that. Barry was in Trinidad and his bill came up to that and was paid with tax payers money and not one word from the then prime minister?????
