PM not to blame

 I have observed that many are casting blame for the reported misdeeds of the two dismissed ministers on our Prime Minister.

 I put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the two individuals, now relegated to the back benches where they rightfully belong. 

The Prime Minister is not a parliamentary nursemaid. She is not responsible for anybody’s personal bad habits nor is it her responsibility to account for what they do in their private lives.

She has acted very well in these matters and she must be applauded for that. I would have been the first to oppose her had she not acted.

The ship of State sails on amid a school of Opposition sharks snapping at the heels of the Prime Minister for wrongs, perceived and ima­gined.
