Surprise, surprise! Government does not believe that it is an appropriate time to investigate and assess independence issues. Did anyone really think it would happen?
Same old. Independence is not feasible. We can present no evidence but believe us – we’re politicians.
£24,000,000 is well
gambled spent on Pinewood agreements. We can’t provide evidence but believe us – we’re politicians.
We live in a low-crime, high-detection rate, safe place to live but the police urgently need sweeping, draconian powers. There will be major problems for our Home Affairs Minister if he doesn’t succeed in persuading Tynwald to accept the Bill. We can’t prove any of this but believe us – we’re politicians.
Why on earth should we believe any of this? With the prospect of Stasi-style statutes being introduced there are those who speculate that while we are now being asked for our opinions and our agreement should these measures be successfully introduced then our opinions would be no longer necessary. The state would be able to clamp down on any situation that might arise. Could this be true? Why risk it? We don’t need this garbage and the Bill should be placed in an appropriate receptacle.
