The truth will come out

The political stability of this country cannot be put in jeopardy by arguments about which party or minister appointed more people to the public sector in the past or who is responsible for the economic train wreck that saw the public debt and deficit go off the rails.

Of course these questions will have to be answered in due course, but this should be done in a manner that is strict and unbiased, without embroiling the country in the processes of investigative committees and the vicious cycles of political animosities that have undermined such efforts so often in the past.

A committee of “wise men” could be put together to collect and investigate evidence from the past few decades in order to discover the truth of the Greek fiasco. The numbers will speak for themselves. Because the fact is that the public does have a need to know the truth and to come to its own conclusions regarding what went wrong and why, and, more importantly, who is to blame.
