  • NO STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARED ON MONTSERRAT


    27th March 2020


    March 27, 2020 GIU, Davy Hill Montserrat– The Government of Montserrat is informing the public that there has been no state of emergency declared on Montserrat.
     

    His Excellency, the Governor Andrew Pearce today (March 27, 2020) signed a proclamation to bring section 18(1) to (8) of the Montserrat Constitution Order (Cap.101) into force. By doing this, it allows for emergency powers to be effected under the Constitution, instead of the old Leeward Islands (Emergency Powers) Order 1959; which has already been revoked in the other British Overseas Territories to which it had applied.
     

    The signed proclamation – SRO 21 of 2020, can be viewed at the following link:

    Report on Government Services – Productivity Commission


    The Report on Government Services is an important source of information to the community and all Australian governments regarding the effectiveness and efficiency of government services.


    The Report looks at a broad range of indicators relating to the cost, quality and timeliness of important services to the community and covers:


    • Education

    • Justice

    • Community services

    • Health

    • Emergency management

    • Housing and homelessness


    Expenditure on these services makes up around 70 per cent of Australian, State and Territory Governments’ expenditure, or around $247 billion dollars.


    “Getting Policy right in these important service areas is critical, and this Report provides important information for governments to learn from each other and consider where changes may be needed,” Michael Brennan, Chair of both the Productivity Commission and the Steering Committee said.


    “It’s also vital that this sort of information

    2018 Platform | Libertarian Party

    Libertarians want all members of society to have abundant opportunities to achieve economic success. A free and competitive market allocates resources in the most efficient manner. Each person has the right to offer goods and services to others on the free market. The only proper role of government in the economic realm is to protect property rights, adjudicate disputes, and provide a legal framework in which voluntary trade is protected. All efforts by government to redistribute wealth, or to control or manage trade, are improper in a free society.

    2.1 Property and Contract

    As respect for property rights is fundamental to maintaining a free and prosperous society, it follows that the freedom to contract to obtain, retain, profit from, manage, or dispose of one’s property must also be upheld. Libertarians would free property owners from government restrictions on their rights to control and enjoy their property, as long as their

    Government Grants – Federal Grants

    With the US economy in a state of recession, many Americans are feeling the crunch when it comes to their money. They are cutting back on their spending and even on necessities, but this doesn’t have to be. What many Americans don’t know is that there are billions of dollars at their fingertips that are being distributed in the form of government and private sector grants and all they need do is apply.

    This is free money that does not need to be repaid and that many companies and organizations continue to fund because of the great tax breaks, among other benefits. In fact foundations are required by law to give away 5% of their total assets each year to maintain their tax-exempt status.

    Government grants are free cash donations that are funded by tax dollars. There are over 1500 Federal grants programs managed by 57 different Federal agencies and

    Libyan rebels backed by American progressive democrats lynch a black man in Benghazi

    No one should be surprised that many on the American right support military action against the regime of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Attacking countries that pose no threat to the U.S. is typically cheered by many American republicans, especially those of the neocon variety.

    What’s surprising is that many on the American left support the current aggression against Libya as well—surprising because American democrats typically like to portray themselves as anti-war and anti-imperialist.

    What makes the situation in Libya especially ironic is that American “progressives” of the left may, without knowing it, be supporting Libyan rebels who have committed—and may still be committing—atrocities against soldiers and civilians suspected of being aligned with the Gaddafi regime. These atrocities, by many reliable accounts, have included the lynching of black Africans.

    Yes, American liberals are throwing their support behind mobs
