This was my blog heading two years ago on 26th February 2014 as I remarked that the rats were jumping off a sinking ship!!! Sadly the ship didn’t sink but sailed on with the same old boys at the helm. Now we await the outcome of the scandals of PNP and E gaming court cases, lawyers are rubbing their hands together in glee, just thinking of all the money they will make at our expense. And the Liberal ship of fools sails on and on and on and on, oh the pain.
Our young ex-Finance Minister Wes Sheridan, is gone!! Wes quietly resigned this week and walked away. However, before leaving he said the following, I want to help my replacement liberal candidate win the election, but I don’t want to do it while still on the tax payers dime, how thoughtful.. His great achievements will cement his place in history for all time. We Islanders will long into the future remember his financial accomplishments. How he proudly introduced us to the Harmonized Sale Tax, and left us with the largest deficit in the Islands history. It is not enough to just say goodbye to Wes, I think we owe him much more. I propose we Islanders ask the new leader to not pay Wes the usual severance and pension. He deserves much more than a petty severance package and a meager pension. I suggest in lieu of the above we gift Wes with a large block of our island shares in the amazing Geo Sweep. I real reward indeed.
God Bless and keep reading.
