I don’t see the PM’s point


Share post:

“I HAVE NOT HEARD it said that the honourable member, in respect of whom that matter was referred, should be prevented from coming to the House, but I’m hearing a lot of fuss now because a newspaper report has said something about your honour in your honour’s private capacity, not in respect of any matter concerning any of the privileges of this House,” – The Prime Minster Freundel Stuart.

[The Speaker] should do the honourable thing and step down!

You talk about wanting to attain First World status, so that is what anyone who has such a position in a First World country would do.

Comparing the case of Burton Hinds, who became Speaker of the House of Assembly under Tom Adams in 1976, with that of the present Speaker of the House of Assembly is like comparing apples with oranges.

I don’t see your point about if he were a doctor.

Some lawyers have been guests of Her Majesty at that hotel in St Philip, and, as far as I recall, there is still one languishing there.

Mr Hinds was charged with contempt of court for an article which he wrote in the Truth paper which was well known in the 1950s and ’60s.

Also, Mr Prime Minister, what message are you – and above all the Speaker – sending to the people of our country, and especially the youth . . . ?

Do you really think that no damage will be done to the Democratic Labour Party, or is that some form of wishful thinking?
