DNA deputy leader Chris Mortimer, Montagu candidate Ben Albury and a group of party supporters staged a demonstration yesterday morning outside the Office of the Opposition on Parliament Street.

They were protesting recent media reports that quote Mr Christie as stating the law firm representing BPC had consulted with him at some point in the past.

Davis & Co, the law firm of PLP deputy leader Philip "Brave" Davis, represents BPC along with Graham Thompson & Co.

The company wants to drill for oil in the Bahamas, but the DNA and others have raised environmental concerns.

Mr Albury said: "Mr Christie is the one who said he's involved, he admits to being a consultant . . .

"I would for like to ask Mr Christie to do the honourable thing and step down as leader of the opposition and resign as a candidate for Centreville."

Mr Albury added that Mr Davis should "definitely step down" as well.

Mr Christie could not be reached for comment, but Mr Davis denied there is any conflict of interest.

"How does it become a conflict? I'm not in government. When I'm there, then the question might arise, then I'll know what I have to do," he said.
