Think, then talk

 Camille Robinson-Regis, last week Tuesday during the debate of the Judges Salaries and Pensions (Amendment) Bill, made a remark which could be interpreted by many as offensive and obnoxious. Even the People’s National Movement political leader, Dr Keith Rowley, did not appro­ve of this distasteful comme­nt.

Who are these “rats coming out of their holes”? Was she referring to the members of the public who simply voiced their concern over this piece of legislation?

I am disappointed as a citizen to know my views could be cause for such a reckless comment. It is my knowledge that parliamentarians represent the people, so shouldn’t our opinion be of utmost importance?

As a child, I was taught to “think before I talk”—and today I urge Camille Robinson-Regis to do the same.
