We hope it is a sign of things to come, for a working relationship with all Cabinet ministers is absolutely essential for transparency to be seen to be done and for the Government adequately to get its message of good governance across in the democratic manner it believes to be equitable for all. And who fits the bill as a maverick more than the Minister of Bling, he who tells it like it is and he who suffers no fools gladly?

The broken promises last week from one stumbling government brief after another have resulted only in feral cats having their way in an extended and island-wide open house.
