MINISTER in the Ministry of Education and D’Abadie/O’Meara MP Lisa Morris-Julian has sought to clarify the context of one of her Facebook posts which has attracted criticism online.
In the post on her personal Facebook profile on Thursday morning, she said, “You are big and you have sense. Me to all who messaging me since 4am: Make sensible decisions aka the best decision for you and yours.”
“Multiple calls were made by individuals alerting me of their intention to traverse compromised flooding areas and also drop their children off at school. Additionally, they were also requesting my permission to venture outdoors and into flood-prone areas.” Despite her pleas, she said, people left their homes anyway. She said one man from Peytonville, Carapo, who decided to venture out told her, “If me and my children dead, it will be your fault.”
It was this comment that led to the Facebook post.
