  1. These duty free concessions on barrels are discriminatory job-killing policy.

    They are discriminatory because only those with close family overseas benefit from them.

    They are job killing because they represent unfair completion with established retailers who who hire more people if they didn’t exist.

    Many rich holiday visitors like me also barrels down to themselves.

    Much of the produce sold on the streets of Kingstown come a from these barrels.

    This is just a vote reaping gimmick.
