LETTER: Green leader calls a spade

During the recent sitting of the legislature I have seen the Premier and his caucus consistently sidestep questions and avoid addressing issues. From PNP, e-gaming, whistleblower legislation to the Water Act, all came under fire from opposition.

Although Richard Brown may be proud of how they were dealt with, I doubt many others who paid attention would agree. Each piece of legislation was carefully kept under clutch of the Liberals. To call the debate that happened in the latest sitting a farce is a simple and sad truth.

During that time I (and anyone else who cared to watch) witnessed plenty of unparliamentary behavior from elected MLAs. Constant interrupting and even heckling while others were speaking came from MLAs, including Paula Biggar, Allen Roach and even the House Leader, Richard Brown. This behavior is by any standard, unprofessional, disrespectful and, I would dare say unparliamentary.

To call a spade a spade, which is exactly what Peter Bevan-Baker did, is not.
