Burt delivers a spotty argument

David Burt

Dear Sir,

Your report in today’s Royal Gazette (January 19), concerning the transparency that David Burt is offering concerning the Progressive Labour Party, brings to mind the adage that a leopard does not, and cannot, change its spots.

In 1998, there was a surplus of more than $1 million in the government coffers and, 14 years later, there was a deficit of more than $2 billion. Where did all that money go?

I would also like to remind Mr Burt, of Ewart Brown’s famous words: “We had to lie to you.”

In case Mr Burt feels that this is a new PLP, I would point out that one is judged by the company you keep.

As I said, a leopard does not change its spots.
