On board a ship there is usually only one captain. He is "God", empowered to marry you and bury you, should you happen to die at sea, that is. In other words, the buck stops with him and no amount of excuses shall exonerate him from bearing the ultimate responsibility for the safety of his ship and crew.
Now that the Royal Commission of Inquiry report, here, on the VK Lingam tapes affair is out and the rogues galleries of so called "conspirators" are on the front pages of the news media, I do not particularly care for a witch hunt. But to all the apologists out there, remember that everyone should be held accountable for their actions in the past and present. While we point fingers here, there and everywhere, lets not forget to call to account the one man who, if its all true, should bear the final responsibility, i.e., where the buck stopped.
Any guiding force for future better governance has to be built on the foundation of what is just and right, not on what is convenient or politically expedient. Those who are found guilty should of course be made to pay the price.
