Premier’s excuses getting worse


The more excuses the premier offers, the more ridiculous they become. Heard on Compass Thurs., Dec. 29, 2016: when asked if he lost his cool when he resorted to pointing a finger at Peter Bevan Baker, he answered, of course not, he was merely surprised that the Green Party leader only spoke for seven minutes about the importance of the plebiscite.

Hmm, how many minutes would it take to say we have the plebiscite results and it clearly shows people want the way we elect politicians changed to Proportional Representation? The fact he mentions one of his Liberal members talked for 40 minutes is hardly a sensible or even a related comparison. It was time wasting pure and simple. Surely any premier needs to have a better sense of the mood of the people.

Does he really believe Islanders are being fooled by these inane claims he continues to offer? Honour the vote, actually become transparent, provide the answers that have been asked of you, not once but time and again. Do as you promised during the election campaign. Listen to Islanders and do business differently from the former Ghiz administration.
