First, the long awaited release of the NIB "forensic" audit has still not happened.
Third, a PLP businessman says the work permit debate is "fueled by inconsistency" by the other side. Not by him of course.
If these men were not holding the fate of us all in their hands these stories would be hilarious. But they're not funny.
The only thing about either side of these discussions is their remarkable inconsistency. However, the PLP Government has the responsibility to get these issues resolved so the country might start to move forward out of the current malaise caused by their inconsistencies.
The fact is, it does not matter if the opposition FNM party is inconsistent at this point. That matters when the next General Elections take place and the voters can decide their fate.
The naked truth is the PLP are losing credibility day by day on these three issues alone.
In relation to the NIB matter, how can auditors not share information with the person being "audited"? This is a remarkable inconsistency.
With regard to the gaming issue. Both political parties have been all over the map on this one, with each trying to out do the other. Just get on with legalising it!
Finally, with the Atlantis work permit issue, the PLP were out of order by picking a person up that is legally entitled to be here under the terms of our laws. Simple.
No amount of speechifying will change the facts in these three cases alone.
Government mismanagement is the source of the confusion. And supporters of both political parties are not innocent bystanders either, we allow our false beliefs in the politicians we support to get in the way of sensible public policies.
So yes, politics is rife with inconsistencies. The big question is, why do we allow it?
I move that politicians and many political supporters should wear name badges shown in the graphic above; Hi, I'm a Politician and I'm Consistently Inconsistent.
