Feedback is welcome, and I just received the following email (which I'm publishing anonymously, though it was signed):
Dear Mr. Turner,
I was pleased to read your letter in this week's Independent regarding the poor turnout in the recent By-election. I agree entirely with your comments regarding the lack of openness and transparency within the St. Helena Government. Right or wrong, must confess that I was one of those who did not bother to vote. I thank and admire you for publicly speaking out and wish that more of us would have the courage to do so.
