It’s blatantly obvious that,in the upper levels of parliamentary Members and public service Bureaucrats, SOMEONE IS NOT DOING THEIR JOB!

127,683 is the number quoted by the RBV as the number of cruise ship passengers who arrived on our shores during the first six months of this year – a 15% increase on 2012.

Of this number, how many passengers didn’t disembark, though? Can you imagine some of the reports that must get back to the folks at home?….about our public transport “hospitality?” About the arrogance, ignorance and disrespect for the law and common decency – displayed by bus and taxi drivers at the wharf on cruise ship days?

The fact is that Tourism (and as part of that, cruise ship passenger arrivals) is hugely important to Vanuatu, especially economically.  Yet again, to re-iterate – SOMEONE IS NOT DOING THEIR JOB!

Local business income is being adversely affected as a consequence of some passengers refusing to disembark because of the abhorrent and obnoxious behaviour of some of these idiot drivers.

Why haven’t the Police and/or VMF stepped in before this?

WHO is meant to be in control of this farcical situation? WHO does the buck stop with?

What are the relevant Government Ministers doing about it? Nothing – from what I see. Frankly, I really don’t give a you-know-what as to WHO is responsible. Whoever it is though, needs to get off their Public-purse-paid backsides, NOW…. and DO THEIR JOB!
