PM looking for a scapegoat but there is still room for negotiations

godfrey smith

Telemedia was nationalized in August of 2009 and more than a year later, not even discussions on compensation have been held. This morning, attorney Godfrey Smith said that the PM is looking for a scapegoat but that there is still room for negotiation.

Godfrey Smith, Attorney

“This prime minister to my mind has showed a clear predilection, a clear tendency where he doesn’t get his way, where you open your mouth and say anything he will in the words of the NTUCB isolate and try to humiliate you. So if you have a problem why didn’t you sit at the table with the people who you are taking advantage of and abusing and negotiate, sit around the negotiating table.  If they throw out a crazy figure say hogwash that noh di gel, sih our evaluation ya. More than a year has passed and nothing and we have his public pronouncements.  So yes the answer to your question in my view is yes its political.  He needs a scapegoat.  He took Telemedia, he said oh this is a war which the so called Ashcroft Group cant win.  He will do this, he will do that and if he cant get it done, if he finds that he cant get it off his hands he needs convenient scapegoats to say well you see I tried but da dehn ya people ya.  All of it can be avoided and can still be avoided if people are prepared to be rational, reasonable, and sit at the table and decide how were going to resolve differences.”

    True dat,. Adults talk when they have issues. Our PM too proud for his own good. A great leader talks to his people, takes constructive criticism n can admit when he’s wrong.
