BLP MPs sworn in

joyinbeescampIt is not every day that the island’s Governor- General has to stand and sit 16 times consistently in one day in order to oversee the signing of documents for 16 people.

This morning, that’s exactly what happened.

Imediately after being sworn-in at Government House, each of the 14 Opposition MPs and two senators sat at the right hand of Sir Elliott Belgrave and affixed their signatures in the books from which they recited the oaths of office.

Some parliamentarians felt the occasion was so special, that at least four of them decided to use their own pens, rather than the one provided by His Excellency, to sign their names. (EJ)
