If thumbing your nose at the only conceivable source of significant funding desperately needed to restore the island (half) to any semblance of normality won't cause the government to fall, what would? Particularly if it happens often, over other (less important) stuff.

It is one thing for one person to ignore the plight of the citizens. For him to remain in office will require a majority of the members of Parliament to do so. Could become a very different dynamic.

Couldn't have said it any better myself. Most of the St. Maarten politicians are in it only for themselves. Not all of them, but for sure most of them. It is about time for their constituents to demand they do what they were elected to do--and that is take care of St. Maarten residents. I can't for the life of me imagine why the same bunch of thieves who have lied to them in the past over and over keep being elected.




Sounds like Congress.

The only way the Government can fall is if the partners in Government quit.
