Is Den­nery Wa­ter Cri­sis at an End? - 24 De­cem­ber, 2016

Den­nery alone?! The wa­ter cri­sis in the south is be­yond state of emer­gency. The “po­lit­i­cal wa­ter com­pany” as I call it needs to be dis­man­tled and re­vamped on a se­ri­ous level but we all know how that goes al­ready; it's like try­ing to get vend­ing space at the air­port! Once again the south­ern­ers do with­out so the north­ern­ers can wash up ev­ery day.

I man in the hills, I have my own pri­vate stream which I am quite gen­er­ous with, but I de­cided to ven­ture down to Vieux Fort for Christ­mas to meet a few bud­dies and at­tend a few po­lit­i­cal lun­cheons with the leader of op­po­si­tion, and hear what the man in the street thinks of DHS. Need­less to say the wa­ter is­sue was a pinched nerve for ev­ery­one I spoke to. If you are go­ing to have in­vest­ments on the scale of what's been “scammed” one would be­lieve the Blood of Life would be in abun­dance to meet any ad­di­tional de­mands on the cur­rent retro sys­tem. Or will there be a “spe­cial” pipe­line for “them” while the pil­grims con­tinue to bathe out of drum pans? Ev­ery re­sort on the is­land is never with­out wa­ter. Even those at higher el­e­va­tions that re­quire sig­nif­i­cant pump­ing are never a day with­out wa­ter. Mind bot­tling isn't it?
