Editorial: Complete supervision

Apparently, the Kingdom Council of Ministers has learned its lessons from the failed supervision it imposed on St. Maarten in the nineties of last year. The move to oblige the Schotte-government in Willemstad to submit all its decisions immediately for approval to Governor Goedgedrag firmly closes the door on any hanky-panky to get around the Kingdom instruction.

How this will work out remains to be seen. The governor is only able to look at what is submitted to him; it still does not exclude the possibility for Schotte to pull a few fast ones. The Kingdom will only find out about such maneuvering in the dark when it is too late.

And then what?

In a country where Helmin Wiels advises MAN-dissident Cleopa “to order a coffin” anything is possible.

For the moment, the Schotte-cabinet is the laughing stock of Caribbean politics, but most people are not laughing at all. They wonder how much worse things will become before they get better.
