Amidst all of the controversy and opposition forces that have rose up against her, the Prime Minister has time and time again emerged victorious. If one follows the tenure of our first female Prime Minister, it is clear to see than her calm, caring and statesman-like demeanour is underpinned by a very strong and confident disposition.
Imagine a woman who rose to lead this beautiful twin island republic was told by those opposed that her coalition government could not last, yet she managed to keep it together for a full five years. Later, the allegations from emailgate against her and members of the government, where she again rose victorious. And, many times in between, whenever she was called upon to make difficult decisions, she did so without fear or favour, always putting country first.
This latest development involving Mr Warner is yet another example of her readiness to do what is right. Having dismissed Mr Warner from her government, he has launched a series of attacks on the Prime Minister with the hope of bringing down her government. I wish to commend the Prime Minister on the excellent work she has and continues to do for this country. Like all the challenges that came before, this too shall pass, as you emerge yet again, victorious.
