The photo of the Prime Minister’s doodling during a no-confidence debate last week caused quite a furore, with radio shows inviting listeners to call in and interpret the symbols. The most outraged were parliamentarians, who passed a motion restricting press access in parliament. The upshot is that journalists will no longer be allowed to sit in the gallery above the members, but will be limited to a 6 x 6 foot press box. So now press restrictions in Jamaica are literal, not only figurative.
The only conclusion I can come to is that parliamentarians:
(a) have no sense of humour
(b) are behaving like petulant children
(c) have got something to hide
(d) all of the above.
