    Given the vast size of the Civil Service one would presume there is at least one Assistant Financial Secretary who could, and should, stand in for the ailing Financial Secretary. Or does that make too much sense?

    Why is the PLP shadow finace minister the Chairman? It is clearly a conflict of interests.

    What is the aim/goal of the PAC? What would they have done for instance if Zane had admitted to corruption? Do they have the power to stop the airport deal if they deem it to be not in the interest of Bermuda? If they have no powers to make a difference what are we paying them for? I assume they are getting paid.
