I daresay he hasn’t”Bond said judges and magistrates are still writing their fingers off, while they are still without research assistants. He spoke of the unfortunate conditions of noise nuisance and cramming in the courts.“That is no dream,” he stressed, further pointing to the high incidence of police brutality.“That is no dream, that we have no Ombudsman to check the excesses of administrative bodies, even though last year we went through this….this is no dream.”PPP MP Nanda GopaulWhile highlighting the employment rates, the migration rate, the percentage of persons living in poverty and the hardship of owning a home, Bond said the Guyanese dream is to,Jerseys From China, “Get the education then leave.”Prior to Bond making his contribution, Labour Minister and PPP MP Nanda Gopaul gave his take on the budget.  He commented on the development of infrastructure and the moving forward of the working sector. He defended the ministry’s non intervention in the contentious RUSAL issue, answering the question posed by an opposition member.The minister said while the ministry entered the GPL issue because it provides essential services, it is not the same with RUSAL, adding that the trade union has its right to take legal action for affected employees. The minister also spoke of the shortage of locally skilled labour which in turn, contributes to overlapping projects.He said he was disappointed at the generalisation of the 2013 budget which he believes is the most complete in recent times.He concluded by asking AFC MPs Khemraj Ramjattan and Moses Nagamootoo to “come back home to the PPP” where there is value in working together.
