    Not fit for Speaker, not fit to chair committee.
    Time limit baloney completely unacceptable.

    Woe to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left and you live alone in the land.

    Perhaps if Cavendish Farms had not refused to continue contracting with a significant number of smaller growers a few years ago, there would have been lots of Island potatoes for the plant. It appears Irving wants greater yields and fewer farmers to control. You can be assured it will not be the farmers who will reap the benefits of increased yields – Cavendish will take care of that. The destruction of our “rich red soil” will be the price to be paid for such a plan as this.

    Thanks for this analysis, Kevin. As for Ms Casey and her forgetfulness re time restraints – disgraceful!

    I am more concerned about the Monks than the Irvings. What is going on here? They have enough money to buy the whole island and they have already claimed it for Budda.
