From Richard Day.
IT seems that even recent history teaches us little. Why can’t we learn from yesterday’s mistakes?
It does not take a memory expert to remember the pathetic performance and multi-million pounds of wasted money that we have seen over the past five or six years of waste orchestrated by our politicians, totally apart from Covid.
I believe that we now have the most undemocratic election format offering us a miserly four or five locally elected representatives. Why does democracy and common sense still elude us?
Why have the newly formed House chosen some Members to fill very prominent positions with so recent historical records of mind-blowing spending of public funds?
Zero-ten, introduced to support our wealthy finance industry, means we all have to sweat much harder to pay the overbearing extra additional percentages. This led us into GST and further taxation pressures on top of devastatingly huge hikes in the cost of living and the eye-watering and crippling housing costs.
Why appoint any minister to a position of exacting responsibility on such recent poor performance and damaging historic results?
All this has been exacerbated by the introduction of dictatorial ministerial government which has created mayhem, confusion and a distrust by the electorate.
