That this Assembly cannot, or many will not, overlook their own petty differences, pet hates and proclivity for points of order and completely unnecessary speeches – we are now seeing what permitting them to remain in place during this crisis will result in. Little or no progress, or too late altogether. Amendment after amendment issued on the hoof, most being nitpicking and unnecessary. Furthermore, being issued at a few hours notice provides Islanders with no input through any channel at all into the democratic decision process. Given this behaviour and many in this Assembly, there is absolutely no likelihood that any realistic, Island strategy will emerge using the floor of the House as the forum. Most members are barely equipped to contribute to most debates but certainly not on matters of such import as our Island’s future and most particularly our economy.
