look opposition leader dr. peter
phillips is again defending the choices
he made for his shadow cabinet at a
press conference on monday he was asked
why doctor dayton campbell who was the
shadow health minister was booted this
time around
dr. campbell supported peter bunting in
the leadership race and for dr. phillips
he signaled his intention to reorganize
the shadow cabinet long before there was
a leadership runoff know where dr.
Campbell was but we also know where
other members of the team were they have
been appointed reappointed some have
been left out I am struck that the
assumption is made that the leaving out
has to do solely and exclusively with
the position that he took in the
campaign it’s not supported by has a
logic or evidence a curfew has been
imposed in East Kingston following last
week’s flare-up of violence in a section
