With due respect to the attorney general who made the statement reported today by Jasmine Brown re the issue of the Opposition "now" appreciating the medical advice, the word now is misplaced. It is not just now. We have always been aware of the medical advice. We have our own party task force headed by a medical doctor and a ph.d in public health.
Our view and objection to the first order had to do with its imposition by the FNM Government without explaining properly to the public for the record why it was necessary and further without consulting the Opposition, which might have resulted in some of its provisions being properly or differently drafted. Our position is vindicated through the AG himself and the Prime Minister who have amended order three times since the first order. Please set the record straight with this. I saw a letter in the Nassau Guardian by former Justice Jeanne Thompson suggesting again that somehow the opposition got it wrong the first time. The course of events clearly shows we got it right the first time and it is the Government that has had to change its position.
