What is wrong with this picture?
The Picture: ( A Poetic Commentary In Blank Verse)
Fifteen months ago the present Bain Town MP was unemployed
He contests a seat Wins Appointed PS More money than he is known to have ever earned
Car Personal driver
He is fired
Makes a rather sophomoric address to Parliament
Announces his continued commitment to the FNM
Because his vote is not for sale
Within a matter of days announces the start
Of a consultancy
Press speculation that he had contract with
Government or with non-government entity
But with government support
Same day in the newspaper touting the expenditures $100,000 to help constituents with roof repairs
Do these realities raise questions such as:
Where is the money coming from?
Who would go to a consultancy headed by this
Was he correct to say that his vote was not for
sale because he had already sold it and the
Law does not allow the sale of the same item
Whatever the answers does this picture
And questions such as these do anything to
Build public trust in the system?
