Surprise. The media takes advantage of a slow news period by stepping up calls for Public Access to Information legislation and, of course, that means a mass anti-PLP conspiracy must be afoot. Nevermind the fact that most people seem to agree that we need such legislation and have agreed since long before the Royal Gazette decided to run a series on it. Nevermind that it was the PLP themselves who originally proposed such legislation or that the UBP also thought it was a good idea and were willing to impose it upon themselves. No, it must be a mass conspiracy to bring down the PLP because an election is just around the corner, right?
So here we go again. The evil oppressive media is out to distort and manipulate the minds of the people. The race traitors are out in full force and anyone who doesn’t condemn those supporting PATI must be anti-PLP and likely racist. Nevermind the message, shoot the messenger.
Remember when there were those of us who wrote about the pointlessness of expressing independent thought? This is why.
It makes one wonder if people care about accountable government. If we don’t need PATI, why do we bother having the government report on anything at all? Should they not be allowed to do as they please? Should we bother having any rules or laws apply to government? Should it be acceptable for anyone to speak anything but praise for all actions of government?
Is it just me or did the PLP not just win the election? How then can this be a conspiracy to bring them down? Why is the present any less worthy of a time to pursue what most agree is the right thing to do? Ask yourself; if not now, than when?
