Some questions

The on-going Furbert/Tweed/Government argument is confusing me and I think there are some questions that I have not seen answered, that would help clear this up.

  1. How often do Government Ministers view work permit applications? Is it dozens every year or once every ten years?
  2. Who gave the Minister the file (it seems accepted that she did see it.)
  3. What is the average time for a work permit application to be approved?
  4. Why does the Rev Tweed need a permit anyway?

Only four questions but they would put the whole argument into perspective and, depending on the answers, could make a very compelling case for one side.

Personally, I think that until those answers are forthcoming Mr Furbert should hold his fire – holding the Government (hence the country) to ransom over this issue does not seem to have gone down well.

I am sure he wants to protect someone he sees as ‘dear’ to him – but the way it has played out so far comes across as being hypocritical given his role the People’s Campaign to stop Pathways to Status.

At the same time, I sincerely hope that Government is also not playing games and trying to ease out someone they see as an effective and vocal opponent.
