We have heard a lot of comment over that past few days on the reason for the defeat of the PLP at the polls on May 2nd.
I believe it was for a singular reason - the PLP is still our father’s PLP.
In May 2002, the new PLP administration started brightly, with PM Christie promising a code of ethics with which to guide his party’s conduct in office. It did not take long for the PLP to resume its’ original persona, with victimisation, nepotism, corruption, bribery, deceit and secretive governance the order of the day. Not to mention their abhorrent attempt to undermine the independence of the judiciary, and their attempts, once again, to usurp the will of the people at the ballot box.
