It is amazing how things get done when it affects government members personally. Police, teachers, nurses asking for a wage rise, are told it will happen over the next three years, but MPs get a 45 per cent wage raise immediately.
It’s good to hear Cook Islands government will introduce legislation attempting to curb drink-driving tragedies.
Condolences to the grieving family, but please consider that a proposal to lower blood alcohol content, helmets for all, and driver education is just not enough.
The purpose of this letter is to offer the public an explanation in respect of a posting on the Democratic Party Facebook page on Thursday 30 January 2020.
Some are heralding as leadership the Prime Minister’s suddenly discovered burst of enthusiasm for mandatory wearing of helmets for all bike users, banning phones and earphones while driving and reducing the alcohol limit.
