Committee chairs receive extra pay above an MP’s base salary.

‘Very significant penalty’

Premier Steven Marshall said Mr Duluk decided to resign his position after a discussion between the pair.

“This type of behaviour is completely and utterly unacceptable,” Mr Marshall said.

“Sam Duluk recognises this.

“He deeply regrets the actions of late December.

“He has apologised and now he has received the penalty.”

He said it was a “very significant penalty” but he did not need to resign as an “excellent Member for Waite” because of his “error of judgment”.

Labor wants Premier to take more action

Labor deputy leader Susan Close said Mr Marshall needed to do more.

“This Liberal MP has clearly sexually harassed a woman in the workplace,” Dr Close said.

“Connie Bonaros is a woman of integrity and that is what she has stated has happened.

“The Premier should remove this person from all public roles and should be publicly condemning this activity.

“It is unacceptable in today’s day and age for someone in a workplace to slap another person and for a person to speak inappropriately and behave in a sexually inappropriate manner.”

Ms Bonaros has been contacted for comment.

Yesterday, she said she had taken legal advice in relation to the matter.

“All women should feel safe in their worksite,” she said.

“All men should understand that their harassing conduct can have a terrible impact on how safe women feel at work.”

BONES – Knock On Wood Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
I’m like a well-oiled, money-making lyric machine
It’s only beautiful things in life I quietly see
I admire the things that life silently brings
With little effort on my part, I acquired the means
Ain’t grow tired of blades, so watch how you come up to me
I yellow tape you then hastefully say there’s nothing to see
Do enough for the rain
Had up to here with the sleet
The game without me’s like the me without the ambition in me
The world itchin’ to see what SESH gon’ do next
It’s like a mission to me to be a stress-free mess
No one’s speaking to me
I’ve been turned on to many times
Like, what you see on the TV
Too many lies being told to my face
Like I’ve been shipped down a dead end
And this rapping [?] a waste
But I escaped, just by the skin of my teeth
Still got the heart of a peasant
I got the music of king

Blind shades, brighter days, you know what you mean to me
Darker hues, I feel used
I don’t know what you see in me
I thought I told you that we won’t stop
I thought I told you that we won’t stop
I thought I told you that we won’t stop
I thought I told you that we won’t stop

[Verse 2]
The syllable killer, the illest of villains
I’m banana clip peelin’, if you tryna get near me
I got the MP with me and the Desert Eagle near me
Even if you found me sleeping
One sound and I’m up tweaking
I’m shooting at the wall, hoping that you fall
Screaming nothing at all, and hooping at the park
Like it’s just light work, but I’m ’bout to make it dark
It’s imminent when I spark, bullseye every target
You better plan on ending it, if you plan to start shit
I’m shooting up to Mars in the death star ship
I take it to different lengths, I bless and I pocket tanks
I’m good like no thanks, I brought my own things
Resources by the vault, I purchase no matter costs
I can say a whole lot without even having to talk

Blind shades, brighter days, you know what you mean to me
Darker hues, I feel used
I don’t know what you see in me
I thought I told you that we won’t stop
I thought I told you that we won’t stop
I thought I told you that we won’t stop
I thought I told you that we won’t stop

Chuck Strangers – Style Wars (feat. Joey Bada$$)

[Verse 1: Chuck Strangers]
I wanna thank god for this vibe
I’m just layed up high
Thinking fuck a job I’ll rather boss up on somethin’ I believe in
Sonic aesthetically pleasing
Niggas claiming they the best while Rakim still breathin’
Do your Googles nigga I’m in control of things
God and I move together is two
Manifesting a move steady reppin’ the crew
We warriors with the rhymin’
Shouts to Oakland but the warriors from Coney Island
On them rooftops lit one up for 2Pac
Because this is murder rap
Think how quick we grew up low key insane
My best friend she snort cane guess life is like a dice game
Should I risk it with the biscuit that’s when the cops came
The dynamic of my whole block changed
Yo it’s a John Stark
New York mentality
Faded and miseducated 24 years and made it
Now niggas can express they selves
Times I need to be alone
Turn off the MP shut off my phone and just zone
I think of home when I need to be strong
Been rollin’ up no more hittin’ the bong
It’s different phases I’m on when I be writin’ these songs
You can have my heart sing the tales of the light
That the dark run the dark sing painting prosperity
Chopped and new shipment now I got all my equipment
So now I’m plottin’ on some necklaces
Mercedes or the Lexus shit
You can see it in my eyes I got nigga rich endeavours
They gon’ try to hide and make it sound clever
While a metronome tick like a fake Rolex
I wonderin’ who owns next
I just wanna fuck you
Singin’ ass bitch don’t take the curve personal
I’m just tryin’ not to work with you
I’mma be stuntin’ on all the lame niggas who pass me

Popcaan Eyes Major Investment In St. Thomas

Popcaan has his eyes set on a major investment in St. Thomas, a move he hopes will drive development in the rural Jamaican parish.

Last month, the Unruly Boss met with St Thomas, Member of Parliament for Eastern St Thomas Dr Fenton Ferguson where the two discussed the bad roads in the parish and the need for development. A rep for the dancehall star told Dancehall HipHop that he plans on not just talking but take action and is planning to use his own money to invest in the community.

“We have a number of ideas that we are planning to act on and so far we are getting outside investors interested in our mission,” his rep said. “Poppy spoke in depth with the MP and the two have agreed that the parish needs some development of infrastructure and business activity. It’s almost like St. Thomas is being left behind and this has been going on for years where we are neglected by politicians.”

Popcaan leads a protest last month in St. Thomas where he called for the government to fix the deplorable roads in the parish. “We have been trying to get the Government’s attention for a while now, and still no change,” Popcaan said. “St Thomas is a parish where we don’t have a lot of things, but right now, we’re just asking for the road.”
