I see Mr. Christopher, the press officer of the PLP, is quoted in todays RG concerning Mr. Furbert’s interest in joining the PLP. I agree with Mr. Christophers’ estimation that there is no reason why Mr. Furbert cannot join the PLP, however I am wary about any suggestions that Mr. Furbert could sit as a PLP MP. Obviously, should he join the PLP while sitting as an Independent (yet UBP elected) MP, he would automatically become a PLP MP. That being said I think it would do more harm than good for the PLP to have Mr. Furbert as an MP. Nor does it do much credit for Mr. Furbert, after the numerous and harsh attacks he recieved from the PLP while leading the UBP (or for that matter, the same PLP attacks would reflect back on the Party). Accepting Mr. Furbert as a PLP MP would be sheer folly for the Party. I for one (for what it’s worth) would strongly oppose any such development as being contrary to the PLPs aims.
