ENDANGERING THE PUBLIC INTEREST AND DAMAGING PRIVATE INVESTMENT: THE REX ACQUISITION
The election of a party into Government does not bestow an exclusive licence on the winners to define and declare the public interest to suit their whims and instincts. Otherwise, there would be no need or place for a Constitution, the Courts, judicial review or the tort of misfeasance in Public Office. The planned acquisition of the REX is not pursuant to policy, process or political philosophy. Therefore, its instigation may well be found in a playground of sorts.
