    what is the point in the tender process anyway. just a waste of time. Gov is going to do what it wants, when it wants, where it wants. We are so very lost in this country.

      That’s the problem with you idiots. Y’all are uninformed but like to air your mouths and spew your ignorance. The RVIPF is not controlled by the elected government. The Premier can’t just use the RVIPF like he could use Public Works to patch roads etc. The Governor can give the order to the commissioner but not the Premier. Plus the police isn’t a security firm so they won’t do that as a daily chore unless they received a threat everyday and have to do their actual job.

  7. Transparency says:

    Why can’t we see a list of all government contracts. Is there a register with all of them on it. How much they cost who gets paid and which minister agreed the contract
    The lawyers must be costing lots of our money for the COI so they could list it all for us including how much they get? Bet they got a waiver.

  8. Lol says:

    I truly believe this Government does not understand the meaning of the word Governance. I truly believe they think once they sit and agree to waive a rule all is well and they are justified.

  9. COI says:

    They just keep doing wrong. Even under the watchful eye of the COI. Can’t fix stupid
