You gotta love it. The leader of the only institution that uses legalised force to accomplish its goals is accusing someone else/another group of having no moral authority to accuse them of such acts.
Let me put it this way. Mr. Perry Christie (PLP), Prime Minister, has suggested that the Opposition FNM have no moral authority to accuse his party of conflicts of interest when they have done the same thing.
Here's no less than a lawyer and the leader of the Government suggesting that conflict of interest is okay if someone else does it.
When will we mature enough to simply do the right thing?
By suggesting that conflicts are bound to happen in our small country excuses him in this case is not satisfactory at any level. There are established protocols and guidelines, maybe even laws, that require certain steps before contracts are awarded, that Mr. Christie should want his government to follow whether his predecessor in office did it or not.
When did partisanship provide license to commit wrong doing? And even if a party supporter thought this was acceptable, shouldn't the Prime Minister disabuse them of such thoughts instead of encouraging the behaviour?
