Suttyhudeo Tengur : “I am not a political stooge” Featured

Written by
Recently nominated at the head of the Standards Council, the trade unionist and political observer, Suttyhudeo Tengur, argues that his nomination is solely based on meritocracy and according to the legal framework. The ardent political observer also points out what should be the government’s priorities.

But ask them if they agree with being taxed at 16, or if they think they should have more rights - to buy alcohol or have a say in their parents level of intrusion in their lives, for example - and they could go on for hours. But surely is not that about politics, legislation and rights, too?
