Dear Editor,

Why has the CIP government not given Mac Maokoroa the infrastructure portfolio? 

 

He is the most experienced, has a degree, has worked in the ministry and WATSAN and he won the party an important seat.

So why is he being ignored for the Penryn newcomer Robert Tapiatau, who seems to me to be blinded by the big city and bright lights of Rarotonga?

Oh, there it is – I just answered my own question. Give the new guy a portfolio he knows nothing about and then tell him what to do, just sign here.... yes, we always use T&M Heather for our contracts, no need to change now.

And I can hear our leaders saying it now: “Oh, no, don't be silly, no need to fix Muri roads, they didn't vote for us, so let them suffer longer.”

There are good people in this country going to waste, but hey, might as well go the whole hog and allow a convicted criminal to be in charge of the criminals by being given the new Corrections portfolio. 

What a laugh. In my opinion, this government has no scruples when it comes to orchestrating the complete mismanagement of the Cook Islands so we can open our arms, land and ocean for the Chinese to ride in and save us.
