On a collision course
Decisions have been made and are being made without any forethought or consideration for the consequences.
There has been recent talk of yet another low-cost housing project, and yet the Grand Atlantic development was hailed on its presentation as the answer to affordable housing. Only one unit was sold and yet another white elephant remains.
The people’s land, Morgan’s Point, was given in exchange for a much smaller property, Southlands, which was projected to be part of our national parks system. So what do we have? A failing Morgan’s Point project, and, correct me if I am wrong, little or no progress on “Southlands National Park”.
The country is running out of money, but what action is being taken to recover unpaid fines, employment tax, land tax?
It appears that the speed limit being observed by the average road user is at about the 65km/h mark. Posted speed limits are not observed and neither political party has the guts to bring in legislation to crack down on these illegal activities — guess it would be politically unwise.
I wrote to you back in 2000 after being in Anchorage, Alaska, where persistent offenders had their vehicles confiscated and sold, with the proceeds going into the local coffers. If the motoring public realised that there was a chance of losing their transport, maybe, just maybe, the speed limits would be observed.
When one is sitting in the House of Assembly with a big, fat salary — way above any minimum wage advocated by our representatives — why spoil the status quo?
Decisions that should be made are just not happening, and yet our politicians can quickly violate court-mandated decisions.
Unfortunately, one has to look around the world and see this is the norm with other governments, exacerbated by the present incumbent in the United States.
