Please be more critical of our MLA

Isn’t it about time your paper became a little more critical of the behaviour of our MLA?

Isn’t it about time your paper became a little more critical of the behaviour of our MLA?

It is unbelievable that you cannot write a report in your newspaper that tells both sides of the Paralympic athlete and the disregard for anything MLA.

Having said that, let’s congratulate our hero. She has singlehandedly shown by the use of modern technology that there is no need for an MLA office, a legislature and all the government offices and personnel. They can now go anywhere in the world, do as they wish to conduct the business they were elected to do, either lying in the sun or racing their wheelchairs.

Wow, what a tax savings to us pensioners, wage earners and families who can’t make enough to keep their heads above water by staying in her constituency. Congratulations “Mickey,” go for it. Get out there and lead the way (as you so often proudly tell us).

Hopefully the people who don’t have the electronic gadgets, wages and expense accounts you have, can read a report on what your real achievements are, in a newspaper that can get back to what real reporting is all about.
