New Transparency Motion I moved is not a topic on here - is it "Man Forums"?

Must be an election forthcoming... you won't be getting my vote

Electioneering politicians are two a penny. We'd be more interested in the commercial confidentiality issue you were rebuked over.

So much for transparency there eh?

Probably a bit of a non story.

Council of Ministers probably have a point.  Anyone who becomes an MHK knows they have to complete a declaration of all their interests (even some of those seem overly unnecessary).

I would agree that some people may find it far from ideal to have to lay their financials lives bare only to be unsuccessful at election time.

It is their private business and at that stage should remain so.

Thats the problem not many people understand the Post Office as a Business  - only one part doesn't have commercially sensitive information - So do you want all the other suppliers providing parcel services knowing what they are tendering against for their businesses - IOMPO doesn't have their information provided?

This issue was being discussed in one of the other threads a bit somewhere I think. Brought up share holdings and the like.

I agree with you.  People seem to have some sort of obsession with commercial confidentiality but it is needed in many cases.

It is fascinating when people have what is known as a Damascene Conversion.  I can remember alleged conflicts of interest in the past where school officials were alleged to be giving work to 'close' friends.

It be great to know what your talking about to investigate what you allege to know?

Yes on principle I will leave a party when told I can't do something because it was a question to a Minister that needed to be answered for a constituent.

Please can we ban electioneering on here. We like to discuss no hopers, time wasters and halfwits without the bother of reading what they have to try and say.
