0 #2 Risky Approach by ChrisMosses 2012-09-13 09:08
The enthusiasm of the Minister in pursuing matters that may not have full support from the government is my concern. There are many aspects of his (and the department’s) approach that need scrutinizing. This process is happening; Wednesday 12th, in the Legislative Room was the start in public but only two thirds of planned questions were aired. What subjects in the remaining questions?
Our inexperienced Ministers and MHKs could become an embarrassment to some good practices of the governments far and wide. Does the community want us to wear coloured stars to show what level of social support we have been assessed to receive, by standards that are subjective and people that are driven by accounting (didn’t apply to bailing out the finance market). The ParaOlympics have demonstrated the complex system of appraisal of abilities and appropriate ratings - deemed to be ‘fair’. What is Chris trying to take on for Social Services?
