I want to set the record straight

Dear Sir,

A couple of weeks ago my letter appeared in The Royal Gazette with respect to the vicious, sexist and disrespectful comments made by the not so honourable Member of Parliament and Leader of the Opposition, Mr Marc Bean, towards a female Member of Parliament and political opponent. I noted the stunning silence from the esteemed female Members of Parliament of the Progressive Labour Party.

Since which I have found out that Honourable Member of Parliament for the Progressive Labour Party Mrs Kim Wilson did in fact have the courage to speak out publicly. Luckily, I saw her while in the mall shopping and gave my apology, which she graciously and humorously accepted.

Just wanted to set the record straight.

Yours sincerely,

CHERYL POOLEY

Proud to be

a strong woman

Kim Wilson
