The Deafening Silence

What is worse than the back and forth between the various government officials on current affairs and ongoing access issues, is the deafening silence of the private sector.

No Chamber of Commerce to call for urgent action.

No Small Business Association to demand answers and solutions to help members who depend on the ferry to ensure they can supply their customers.

No Hospitality Association to cry about the effect to bookings.

A quiet Taxi Association who benefit from day trippers.

As long as the government remains the only voices we hear, there will be no impetus for making changes that bring results.
