Forgive me for not understanding this new ferry issue. How is this government, which is always crying broke; no drugs in the hospitals; looking feverishly for money to pay public servants every month; owing a large debt to contractors and paying debts generally, can out of the blue have $120 million (TT) to purchase a brand new ferry (not withstanding it is slower by more than an hour) for the inter-island service?
Now understand I have no problem with the government having another ferry to add to its fleet. Proper repairs to the two current boats to service the inter-island should add a few years to them.
