Why we need an inquiry
February 7, 2011
There seems to be an insidious “don’t rock the boat” atmosphere regarding allegations of corruption pervading this lovely little island. That is to our shame.
The rationale for this, as I see it, is a group who say: “Well it’s not good for the Island’s image “ or “not enough evidence”. If that is the case, with all these constant rumblings of corruption circulating around the Island, then all the more we should pursue a Royal Commission so that the accusations can be seen, verified, or put to rest once and for all.
This Government needs to get on with governing this Island so that they can deal with The People’s Business, but if any of the accusations prove to be true we should invoke a vote of no confidence immediately.
If the above is not dealt with we will continue rattling around, wasting time and money under the weight of rumours, which in turn makes the government impotent, as is the case today.
Surely by now we have become aware of our image to the world. So every effort should be made to make it evident that we will follow the money and root out corruption, and not leave a stone unturned to regain that most precious prize of being an Island of Integrity.
