Arthur ‘has no time for the masses’
Tue, November 06, 2012 - 12:08 AM
OPPOSITION LEADER Owen Arthur has been accused of being a politician who has little interest in the masses.
The charge was laid by the ruling Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) main economic spokesman Chris Sinckler, who said Arthur was interested only in “classes but not the masses”.
Sinckler accused Arthur of not being in Parliament to debate almost every piece of social legislation introduced over the past four and a half years.
These included the workers’ rights legislation, the National Youth Policy and the recently passed financial assistance for women who are not receiving support from delinquent fathers. Sinckler also said Arthur missed the minimum wage debate. (GE)
