THE 'POWERGATE' SCANDAL & MY EMAIL
Here is the email I sent ILM
I have no idea what has happened to you these last couple of days but I can assure you I was shocked at your appearance on CTV this evening. The venom you showed towards Graham Power was nothing short of a disgrace, especially from a Sitting Minister. You have turned into Judge,Jury and executioner, this coming from a former Magistrate, how has this happened.
Remember what Andrew Lewis said on the original suspension
"In addition, of course, the Chief Officer cannot comment and has not yet had the full opportunity that the process allows to answer to these matters and to defend himself. Any debate would thus be unfair to him as the full facts are not yet known."
Your comments when asked about Graham Power retiring 3yrs ago shocked me, i,m under no illusion what you plan on doing next week.
Don't you realize its not just us who are looking at this shambles, we have outside media following the blogs, and you are prepared to hold a 'Kangaroo Court' and I wonder why my government is in such a mess
This is just the beginning Senator, your political future and reputation is going down faster than a zero-ten tax policy, we are not mugs or fools.
The only person who should be having a briefing next week is Graham Power not States Members, how many State Members will know anything about what you plan on bringing to the states?
I believe in being honest Senator and speaking my mind, you are a politician and represent me, I believe you have failed in your handling of the Graham Power suspension. I believe, and this is my own opinion, that you should Resign, you are about to bring us back into the dark ages, you are prepared to hold court with just the prosecution and no defence, this from a former Magistrate, plain crazy.
I know the local media will be fully briefed and all favors called in, its just how it works, we will have the big headline Graham Power this Graham Power, but we know Wiltshire was the beginning of the disciplinary procedure not the end, we also know that if Graham Power had retired in November 2010 he would still be waiting, have you forgotten about your p30 scrutiny hearing when you said the process would take over a year.
What happened to the poll topping Senator who said there was no one in the house who was fit to be Chief Minister? I think we can scratch you from the list
A Shambles A Complete And Utter Shambles
Next week will be full on i,m sure as ILM takes us back to the Dark Ages. If anyone reading this is not happy about what's going on then email ILM and let him know.
He is a politician and represents you
