Tools, Mr Minister

 SIX hundred million dollars for the purchase of helicopters and drones for security surveillance in the fight against crime proudly announced by Minister Gary Griffith. 

Please Mr Griffith, go to and purchase some cellphone jammers that the prison services have been clamouring for and the Prime Minister had promised. They are available from as low as US$90. 

Although this suggestion may seem ridiculous it is not half as ridiculous as prisoners being able to make unregulated calls from within the prison walls. 

Much less talk and much more action please! This is also directed to the Opposition that use every chance to criticise, but offer no worthwhile solutions.
