Clock is ticking
Re: “Charter rewrite vote delay,” (BP, Sept 25).
Given the absurdly high salaries we are paying our “representatives” and their aides, one would think they could at least fake representing the people, but apparently not, as they slink out the back of parliament to avoid the people and head to their mansions after basically failing to do anything about a charter rewrite.
It seems clear to me that parliament has no intention of making any changes to the constitution that will even come close to satisfying the people, but I suspect they will go on dragging this out for as long as possible, so they can go on living the good life on the taxpayer’s money.
I don’t know how long this government can go on doling out miniscule amounts to the millions of poor to keep them from revolting while they collect big salaries for basically doing nothing but I imagine the money will run out one of these days and the students will be less than pleased to find they are heavily indebted for the rest of their lives because of this big nothing that they are now being forced to pay every day now.
