Dear Sir,

ONE tut tuts and shakes ones head with disbelief when you read how Mugabe buys his support by handing out food only to his supporters but blatant vote buying is much closer at hand. The latest misuse of taxpayers money is Calvia's pronouncement that they intend to give a 30 Euro cheque (to be spent in restaurants and other tourist establishments in Calvia) to around 5'000 families in Calvia to, ”form a family cohesion and to add dynamism to Calvia's businesses in the low period”.

I urge all sensible thinking residents to make sure that they are registered to vote and in Spring next year to vote the current spendthrift socialists out.

Enough is enough!
