The Tamils and the Oceanic Viking

Posted on: November 19, 2009

Some time ago after he was elected and then appointed Immigration Minister, Chris Evans publicly announced that he was not happy with the fact that his office was not transparent and set about to change the situation. For that alone we suggested that he deserved an accolade for making a rare comment in the National interest instead of Party interest and we wished that his tribe may increase.

A sharp sense of duty from politicians is indeed rare. Sharman Stone of the Opposition has much to learn from the facts rather than the perception. Firstly,the safety of the ship and her crew, who were outnumbered ,would override any and every other consideration while they remained on board and I especially focus that comment on the Greens to reflect on their sense of duty to the Nation rather than themselves. Any means at all to get them off the vessel has no argument, least of all a political one.

So what, there is or was a deal? Just what deal would Sharman Stone make or Sarah Hanson-Young and the Greens make, if members of the crew were held hostage and the ship hijacked to ransom of one kind or another?
