DIAS VS TMR

Linda A.S. Dias The attacks on Mr. Browne by the Montserrat Reporter are getting a bit monotonous now, don’t you think?

The Montserrat Reporter When is suggesting to do the right thing and to speak truth an attack?

Linda A.S. Dias When it seems as if there may be a personal vendetta against him in quite a few editorial headlines.

It’s one thing to be on a quest for truth, but it’s quite another to deliberately target an individual.

Whilst I respect the Montserrat Reporter’s perspective, it’s just a bit disappointing to read articles such as this, where the author is confronting both GoM and the MDC on their intentions during the consultation process, and yet the Montserrat Reporter’s caption on the Facebook article post is “MDC CEO still wrong…” (…especially considering that the current CEO was not involved with the MDC during the consultation phase).

I’ve looked forward to reading articles from the Montserrat Reporter for many years now, but I’ve noticed a very deliberate, negative undertone in some of the headlines relating to the MDC and Mr.Browne lately. I completely respect the perspective of the Montserrat Reporter, but it’s made me question if expressing the truth is the focus, or if attacking a specific individual is.

That being said, the article by Ms. Osborne was an interesting read (despite the seemingly inappropriate Facebook caption attached to it).

The Montserrat Reporter Your opinion is quite respected and very welcome. I will say however that it does appear that you are not understanding what you read, in terms of your idea of an attack on Browne.

You fail to see where his credibility lies. It is he who said (as you say he was not present at the Charette) “I know for a fact…” that certain things took place. I am grateful that someone else took this challenge of ‘consultation’. My biggest issue, (and I suspect you were might have been a part of this hence your interest) the lack of understanding of MDC’s OBLIGATION to provide information to Montserrat. I had not yet said one word of criticism on MDC in the newspaper, (others opinions were published) except to call on them to make meaningful information available for publication what was going on.

My “attack” as you chose to call it came when Browne who had not made a single effort, to speak to the people, certainly not through TMR whether by advertising or otherwise, but then admonished his management staff not to have anything to do with TMR.

If indeed you have read what I have written, the challenge is yours and I always put the challenge out for anyone to dispute what I say as anything less that the truth. Do bear in mind that I am much closer to the things I say than you can well imagine. Please read and you may then have some advice for Mr. Browne. Not everyone at MDC really has Montserrat’s progress in any part of the crevice of their minds. I would like to at least hear otherwise, so to be convinced. The negative undertones are a call for an effort to correct. Unfortunately some people see it only as negative. My hope is to discourage deceit and deception and get real ‘positive’ action. I will be pleased to publish these exchanges.
