Locking up the press

Read and digest the anti-democratic sentiments behind this:

Meanwhile, Public Safety Minister David Burch was on Hott 107.5 yesterday, claiming that this newspaper should count itself lucky because some in the PLP want to lock them up and have sanctions, penalties, consequences and fines.

In an apparent reference to Government's withdrawal of advertising in The Royal Gazette, Sen. Burch said he was disappointed not to have seen more favourable coverage despite hitting this newspaper "where it hurts most".

"At what stage of the game do you figure out that those people really are crazy?" he said.

Just to reiterate:

...some in the PLP want to lock them up and have sanctions, penalties, consequences and fines.

So, the PLP during the election were against locking up violent criminals but are apparently for locking up the press.

Very, very scary.
