Comment Facebook Mr Pierre Laporte resignation

Post  Sirop14 on Wed Jan 28, 2015 1:33 pm

Good morning Friends, how was it at the Clubs last night. May we address something - did not have a drop - Facebook do not allow quote - at least we do not know how to use it. Mr Gill first comment - Many may judge we have been winding everybody with our cabbage issues last night - having said we visited countless Churches in France, Austria and prayed other issues we do not even mention. Mr Gill talk of the budget cut by the former current Minister Laporte and hence the very difficult if not terrible situation STB is in. Have noted the % and amount in Rs million. Mr Gill with my frog singing all the children songs and Mr Laporte grew up in that village and the frogs in the rivers and fields  as children - How many remembers the many issues we drove with our Heraldric/heraldry workings - very high important issues of then Old STB school at Belombre - we did not use a budget of $1000 and yet under President FA Rene and Mr Savy set the Foundation to our Hotel Industry and then Air Seychelles. We had tried to make Mr Pierre Laporte of these workings. Since the demolition of that Old Tourist Hotel School and the rebuilding of New one the many important contributions we have made using our heraldry/Heraldic disciplines - You had/landed in that mega earthquake and Tsunami of 2004/5 the 250,000 death and more, $150 billion in economic damage in the region. Seychelles got $30 millions compensation damages  - we talk of our Illuminati like that frog singing - everybody choose to forget we have such discipline and mechanism.  Using h same discipline we drove the building of the Qatar Hub development and other issues this is not just any manure - we helped the very Mr St Anges join the Tourist workings instead of lending a helping hand or hands as they do in Switzerland, France Germany right across Europe he set dogs on us and our workings - and we got very angry - short of praying heaven for another Earthquake and Tsunami. There are  those in France who know very well this discipline - we know the statistic of the Tourism Industry - we are not in Africa - it is not right and proper that we use such important discipline, we drive Seychelles Tourist , Airline and vast many issues then when you lot do the reporting  - what methods and manner you/is used to do this reporting - anywhere else this would have been sorted t very differently - respect our workings and discipline because it could get very worse. We helped that EY, all three big global accountants have representation in Seychelles to help this process and workings - what has been the results and outcome.  By the way we gave you Mr Pierre Laporte.  We brought Lehman to Seychelles and a very long list of others - we all need to go back to children time and learn to sing songs with the frogs. One or two may still be around across the Old Bel- Air historic Cemetery. May be that will help us. We are not permitted to be offensively Blunt in public.
