Editorial: Classy behavior

POSTED: 06/17/13 11:37 AM

Education Minister Silveria Jacobs left office in style yesterday with her head held high, no regrets and all the best wishes for the new government.

That is a refreshing and encouraging approach to politics that deserves some attention after all the bickering of the past month. Last year outgoing ministers launched venomous attacks on their successors in press conferences, leaving the electorate behind in a befuddled state of mind. It was not exactly a demonstration of good manners or even the most basic civility.

Silveria Jacobs may have set the tone for the future, acknowledging reality when she sees it, and leading with her classy behavior by example.
