    This has to be a real joke. What has he done to be given that task? At home he has been a dismal failre. Agriculture is at its lowest ebb ever under stewardship.

  2. Minister Caesar is the best possible choice for my money. I have been monitoring his interactions with stakeholders in Antigua at CWA 2012 and here in Guyana for CWA 2013, he is a Ministers who pays attention, asks intelligent questions and seems genuinely interested in his portfolio.
