There was a time in Gibraltar, during the period in office of the GSD, when it was normal to see information in the press about the estimated cost of official projects or the proposed investment in infrastructure by the Gibraltar Government. Questions were answered in parliament and in general terms the media had access to information and the possibility of printing stories which could be openly critical or unsympathetic of the administration’s management of public affairs.

In a recent article in YGTV on the 30th September 2019, it was inferred in no uncertain terms that I was not thinking because I referred to the upcoming election as an “early” election. Rather than focus on the substance of my piece, which is the clear and shameless, electoral exploitation of the fear of Brexit by the GSLP/Libs coalition, Mr. Daryanani chose to focus on a trivial detail. At Together Gibraltar we have been thinking that a corruption-free, transparent and innovative economy is what we need in order to overcome challenges like Brexit. We believe that the people of Gibraltar have been thinking this too. After listening to the debates and hearing the words “safety, stability...” uttered ad nauseam, I’m sure that many among us are finally smiling and nodding in agreement.
