Conspiracy theories flying low. Duck! Is there a doctor in the house?

One of the wonderful things about the Internet is that when you ask questions of the data it contains you get back more than the simple answer. I typed in ‘fenton ferguson conspiracy’ and what did I get back? First, was a story about Dr. Ferguson claiming a government conspiracy in 2011. The Gleaner article stated that the doctor had claimed “There is a conspiracy against the duly elected member of parliament in this constituency. We have seen them working through the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, bringing out what they call rehabilitation grants. Bringing out gifts as it relates to other kinds of welfare things.” To the extent that claims like that bring forth images of people being stabbed in the back, I found it funny that the picture with the story had the doctor administering ‘medicine’ to one of his constituents by way of a then-popular dance that rhymed with ‘staggering’.

Just what the doctor ordered?
Just what the doctor ordered?
How interesting, then, that the doctor claimed yesterday that there was another conspiracy, this time to boot him out of office, adding that people want to ‘paint him as an under-performer’.

The thing about paint is that it only adheres to surfaces that have been properly primed.

I’m not a politician or a political analyst, but I would suggest the best thing to do is to just stack up for the people the ‘achievements’ and the ‘failures’ and let the record stand for itself.

Nothing wrong with taking pot shots at people, but wild accusations have a way of bouncing back from where they came.
