To "A BUSINESS MAN": Do I take it from your comment that you and professionals who enter into a term of politics are doing us "lower people" a service and we should bow while backing away as you walk by? Please correct me but can one member actually hold the authority to delegate such money to a scholarship? The story seems to indicate there were more members involved.

the minister makes it sound that the government gave out these scholarships. lets make this clear for the record that it was taxpayers that made these scholarships possible, not some overpayed politicians.

Actually, the politician who is responsible for managing the taxpayers' money made the decision to make these scholarships possible. Also, note that I have decided that with being a politician would leave be underpaid given my law degree, business degree and current portfolio of investments. personally, I am too selfish to serve the government; I would rather line my pockets. Thus, we should realize that many politicians are missing out of lucrative jobs by serving in politics.

You're joking again Business Man, right? A retired 20-year Constable making $150,000.00 on the street? Imagine being paid that much and the best he can do is make a major announcement of $12,000.00? Goood as Susan Sullivan, same salary, soliciting names of Seniors for a plaqaue.
