Attorney says PM’s attack is wrong in every way

Godfrey Smith

Attorney Godfrey Smith also weighed in on the release from the Office of the Prime Minister, and he wasn’t bashful about it. Smith says that the PM deciding to enter the fray at this point, and using his office to do so, is just plain wrong in every way.


Godfrey Smith, Attorney

“I think it is embarrassing to the Prime Minister. I think it is irresponsible for what was said in that statement to have been said. I think it is wrong to use such a high office to issue not so veil threats of criminal action against individuals who speak out, who exercise their freedom of expression, to speak out about a particular issue like the continued tenure of the judge based on a bar Association resolution which went to the process strictly to the process of extending the judge. And I think again, the open threat—not veiled at all—that a course of action will be taken to effectively deal with the Bar Association I think is something that can be characterised as a modus operandi of the Office of the Prime Minister. And it is divisive and,  as I said, scandalous, embarrassing to that high office and plain wrong.”

    “Divisive, scandalous, embarrassing”, hmmm. Those words are absent from the soul of a Narcissist. They have no sense of guilt and a high threshold for shame. In essence, they have no soul. This bravado resonates well his “macho” constituents. For the rest of us, it’s another long running story of the disrepute that this man has brought this great office into. Nothing new!
