The RHI inquiry into the scheme which trashed Stormont, has started

"November 7th 2017"      News report and 3 minute video of the opening session.

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/rhi-scandal/rhi-inquiry-thorough-and-fair-investigation-promised-how-day-one-unfolded-36297220.html

The speaker in the video, making the opening statement, is the inquiry's senior counsel David Scoffield Q.C..

"RHI Inquiry: Thorough and fair investigation promised - how day one unfolded"

"The inquiry into the botched Renewable Heat Incentive scheme held its first public evidence session."

"It heard how the botched green energy scheme, which ultimately brought down Stormont power sharing "struck at the heart of Northern Ireland's democratic institutions". "

"Inquiry head Sir Patrick Coghlin told the opening hearing at Parliament Buildings, Stormont, that the inquiry team has already examined one million pieces of documentary evidence."

Etcetera...

"Inquiry hears Arlene Foster pressed on with RHI launch in face of concerns"

"ARLENE Foster's eagerness to launch the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) meant flaws were not addressed when they were brought to the attention of her department, the inquiry into the botched green energy scheme has heard."

Etcetera...

All that will happen here is a slap on the wrist. 
Love like you've never been hurt,
Dance like no one's watching,
Sing like no one can hear you.

That point was addressed by the inquiry's council in the video in the news report of the opening session.

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/rhi-scandal/rhi-inquiry-thorough-and-fair-investigation-promised-how-day-one-unfolded-36297220.html

The inquiry has a website, which includes daily transcripts of the hearings.
https://www.rhiinquiry.org/

https://www.rhiinquiry.org/timetable-and-transcripts-oral-hearings

It should have been broadcast live online via video and the recordings of those videos should have been made available online, and there already is an online livecam facility available in Stormont.

I would predict that the carpet will be lifted and the broom will come into play, but one lives in hope.
Justice for the innocent victims of Soldier F.

Obviously the whole `scenario` was run by muppets for the gain of both sides of the `friends `from both political
spectrums .
Both are equally responsible-check out both sides.
It merely just shows how incompetent and self seeking for their `chosen ones`many politicians and the so called
Civil Service-which is anything but-are corrupt.
The Civil Service for one in my opinion needs a really good cleanout in N.I.
The man/woman in the street are treated by those in power as if they are `morons`,they will just go the road they
dictate.
They will just accept what their birth into certain political and religious boxes they have been placed.
Well,I for one am not in a `box`-well not until I have been placed in one by the Undertaker.

I have little or no doubt that some minion will get the rap for this. ::)
Be careful out there folks because they aren't.
