Gibraltar Parliament Walkout!

Gibraltar Parliament Walkout!

The opposing government in Gibraltar, the GSD, staged a walkout in protest to unanswered questions relating to Credit Finance Ltd.  During an interview with YGTV, Daniel Feetham, leader of the GSD, said that ‘it is a very, very important issue and I have to say that I have never, come across a situation, in either our parliament or in a parliament outside of Gibraltar, where you ask the government of the day a question about how £344,000,000, is being spent and the government refuses to answer.’

Mr Feetham is referring to Credit Finance Ltd and savings underwritten by the Gibraltar Government.

He continued that the opposition felt they had no choice other than to walk out, in order to focus peoples minds on the seriousness of the situation, if these investments being made by Credit Finance Ltd go pear shaped it is the tax payer that will have to pick up the bill.  Mr Feetham continues to explain ‘and this is a potential millstone around the necks of not only current but future generations of Gibraltarians.  He goes on to state that this private company has loaned money to the Sunborn project to the tune of 40 million pounds.

He also makes interesting reference to the modern day uses of Facebook and Twitter as tools of instantaneous communications and has even received further information through such social networks regarding other investments.

But will Mr Feetham ever get the answers he desires?  Does he have a right to ask?  And should he be worried about using Facebook and Twitter as other individuals in Gibraltar have been threatened for speaking the truth on such forums, even threatened with legal action by the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority for daring to get the truth out there.

But the really big question is – why do all roads seem to lead to Ocean Village?
