THE EDITOR: It is about time our politicians came to their senses and stopped wasting taxpayers money to pay overseas companies to search for oil which we haven't got any more of. It is far better the government now set up a diversification programme and try to reap the harvest of our more substantial resources.
If they continue to throw away our remaining wealth the colony is going to falter and more borrowing will become necessary putting the nation into more debt.
I am fully aware that this message will fall on deaf ears. It is, however, worth trying in the hope that someone in authority will get the message.
