THE POWERHOUSE IS GOING PLACES!
The Choiseul PowerHouse is “powering ahead” in Cyberspace with the speed of light. Some claim we are hard-hitting and controversial; some claim we are intellectual and academic! Some even claim we are political! Everybody is right! We are all of those things! We have a diverse global audience and it is our pleasure to stimulate your intellectual taste buds and we make no apologies for that. The bottomline is we are independent and have no affinity to any organisation: political or otherwise! We will continue to publish our "power articles"
We wish to extend special thanks to followers for their support. We also encourage you to post your comments and feedback on the Blog using the comments link following the Articles.

WORRIES OF FRAUD
"On Thursday November 25,2010 Bousquet held a meeting with members of the Choiseul Village Council to chart the way forward for the construction of the proposed mini stadium. In addition to the $830,000.00 already in an account at the Choiseul Credit Union Bousquet informed the Council of a further US$30,000.00, which isd a donation from the Portugese Government.
The total amount towards the construction of the stadium now stands at $911,000.00. An estimated target of $1.5M is the proposed target.
Bousquet went on to disclose his vision for the stadium. He sugested that he would like the two fields merge into one major complex with a learning centre,the stadium and a parking area.
A meeting has been slated with all stakeholders for Tuesday November 30, 2010. to chart
the way forward.
The Rep also disclosed to Council an allocation of $150,000.00 as aid to assist with the recovery effort of hurricane Tomas. This decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting held last Monday.
Incidentally today marks the 52nd birthday of the Rep and he couldn't more pleased that handing to Choiseulians the wonderful gift.
Happy Birthday Mr. District Rep! Also today is the birthday of the author of this blog and Lucy Nicholas."
What worries us (and indeed many Choiseulians) is that Bousquet/Tucker will not divulge the source of the funds for the construction of what he calls "Mini Stadium". Where did those funds come from? WHY IS HE ALLEGEDLY A SIGNATORY TO THE VILLAGE COUNCIL ACCOUNT? We also need to know the details of the Portuguese donation. We need to see the documentation. The question is: Was that the amount that he received? Why is there so much sinister secrecy about the Portuguese donation? Should it have been channeled to a dishonest politician? Were there any protocol breaches and what are the avenues for redress? Why does the District rep insist on being a signatory to the accounts for those monies? Is that right?
The PowerHouse is investigating an allegation about the allocation for the Playing Field. Was the allocation $1.5 million? And if that was the Case where is the other $670.000? Has in gone into an account belonging to Rufus Cenac, JMD 2nd or Bruce Tucker? This is one the many issues faced when a politician is a fraudster with multiple identities. It becomes very difficult to track his degree of accountability.
We have previously submitted that the Choiseul Playing field should not be a priority at this time, especially when many people all across the constituency are suffering from the effects of Tomas. $150,000 will do nothing. The people of Mongouge, Saltibus, Gertrine and many other areas need help to restore their lives in order.
In any case, the people of Choiseul/Saltibus need to know how this money is going to be spent. We hope it will not be campaign money for Bruce Tucker!
We are beginning to worry about the potential fraud that may be involved in the use of those monies.
Happy Birthday to my good friend Lucy and also to Gilo.
OUR NEXT ARTICLE WILL BE A FEATURE PRESENTATION ON THE DISTRICT REP WHERE WE WILL SHOW THAT HE CANNOT BE TRUSTED WITH A DIME TO DO ANYTHING FOR CHOISEUL WITHOUT QUESTION. YOU CAN'T MISS THAT!
