Seriously: Where has the privacy commissioner been? This has been happening for years, with impunity.

Sometimes, one is driven to think that we are living in the 'raw days' of communist Russia...when it comes to opportunity, for 'us' mere mortals to seek redress of problems/concerns involving a Government ofice, or Member. The Executive Council, from where 99% of the more significant decisions are made each day, is the most inaccessible entity on the face of the earth. Anything can be said, denied, trumped-up and the Executive-Member is sheilded from being held accountable. Decisions are made, they cannot be challenged...they are 'drop-dead' permanent....forget about the notion of veracity, or facts....BECAUSE THE CABINET, AND DECISIONS MADE THERE ARE UNTOUCHABLE, UNDEBATEABLE....IT IS A BRICK WALL. It is a very well-worn phrase used by weak-ling politicians should any constituant seek a redress from government....sorry, nothing I can do...it was a decision of Stalin....ooops!, sorry, of Cabinet, and all decisions are final...except for Cabinet Members, governing majority of the day....don't forget that...the Liberals were no different...the ND?....we may never know...then, there's no reason to think they wouldn't be as totally controlling. The bottom line of the problem if the electorate...we have short memories....and we always need a new 'wharf', a new road, a new school, an inside favor.....and, that's the problem....we are! WE HAVE TO CHANGE...AND CHANGE CAN BE PAINFUL, AND SOMETIMES COMES FROM PERSONAL SACRIFICE IN THE SHORT HAUL...AND WE, THE VOTES, HAVE NEVER REALLY BEEN PREPARED TOMAKE A SACRIFICE FOR THE COMMON GOOD...ELECTIONS ARE ALL ABOUT ME, ME, ME! aFTER THE ELECTIONS IT BECOMES ALL ABOUT 'POOR ME'....WE REAP WHAT WE SEW! But, but, the good news is we can change...we just need a leader who isn't in the game for their own personal good, or pockets...a genuine human being, whom we can take at his/her word.....we had One, a long while ago...and we crucified Him! Maybe that's why we can't find a saviour!

Nothing would surprise me about this government at this point. They are making their own rules as they go to suit themselves. In three years time NL will be broke and on it's knees.
