This initiative drive aims to suppress voices for a just immigration policy. It also serves as the opening salvo in a scurrilous campaign to return the Council to arch-conservative control by raising a rallying cry against Stuckart and intimidating his allies. Any politicians who believe they can work with the far right are sorely mistaken. They will be taken for a ride as their own policy preferences are derailed. So will we ultimately have another so-called compromise? Temporizing with fanatics gains nada, zippo, zilch.
We don't want a facade of independence, or empty words of independence. We want an investigative Ombudsman independent of Internal Affairs. President Stuckart and the Council are absolutely in sync with public opinion to demand nothing less. An independent investigator is not a disciplinary authority. An independent investigator does not interfere with protected bargained due process. It is a smoke screen to claim transgress of legal rights. Honor the citizen approved charter, Mr Mayor.
