How it works in Samoa today

Dear Editor,

Re: Doctors row brewing 

In other countries, doctors are paid the highest public funded salaries but in Samoa H.R.P.P. M.Ps are paid the highest public funded salaries and they keep giving themselves bigger raises to go along with those money-stuffed envelopes that certain people keep giving them. 

It’s important to note that these envelopes are tax free for some reason that only the government can rationalize.

I guess those who don’t understand the government’s rational on this one are just those stupid people the P.M. keeps referring to every time he is questioned (Sarcasm). 

This must really bug the pastors. 

Now the H.R.P.P. have alienated pastors and their flock as well as Drs. How on earth can they still win in elections? 

Oh right, the elections are not clean. 

When only H.R.P.P. run in a general election then the results will be a Parliament made up of a majority of H.R.P.P. members towing the government line and passing government bills in 15 min after 3 readings. 

They all do this in the hopes of securing a lucrative Cabinet or Associate Minister position. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out.
