Mar 20 - Government Insists ‘People in Glass Houses Should Not Throw Stones’

government logoCommenting on the Chief Minister’s Visit to Washington, following the GSD’s recent insistence that the Government announce who invited Mr. Picardo to the Candlelight Inaugural dinner, the Government has said that their response will not change, no matter how many times, or in how many different ways the Opposition may raise the question.

A statement released by the Chief Minister noted, ‘it is surprising that the Opposition should consider it scandalous that the individuals or companies who facilitated this trip should not be named. When the GSD were in office, they refused to provide these same specific details of a breakdown in the lobbying vote when the information was requested of them.

This is yet another example of the double standards of an Opposition who like to behave as if they were never in Government and as if they have nothing to answer for.

Indeed, the Government had already obtained a detailed breakdown of the GSD's own lobbying vote which contains information that has not been made public before and which will make interesting reading whenever it is published.’
