Say sorry to us! William Duguid. (FP)

As the Barbados Christian Council calls for an apology from the parliamentarians involved in Tuesday’s fracas in the House of Assembly, indications are that Opposition member William Duguid, who was at the centre of the dispute will give a full explanation of his actions today.

When asked yesterday if he was going to publicly apologize Duguid stated: “We’re sorting that out.”

The Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) is scheduled to hold a Press conference today.

However, yesterday the Barbados Christian Council called on all parliamentarians involved to apologize to the country.

Chairman of the Barbados Christian Council, Monsignor Vincent Blackett, issued the call as he condemned the incident in which foul language was heard.

Inappropriate conduct in Parliament has become the norm, and it is reprehensible.

Whether it is this matter involving Dr Duguid or the alleged gun incident with Dr Estwick, both actions are unacceptable and require the strongest censure by the House and public.

Such parliamentary disrespect should not be tolerated and allowed to drag on for years without rebuke or the parties involved receiving sharp reprimand.

A new low in the disrespect and arrogance that the BLP and its parliamentary members have for the people of Barbados. Sadly. it appears that as far as the BLP goes, nothing is sacred in Barbados anymore.

Instead of seeing after the peoples' business for which they were elected, politicians from both sides of the aisle are engaging in childish, counter-productive activities.

Gentlemen, think about the example you're setting for the citizens of our county, especially the younger ones with the use of vile, filthy, unacceptable language in a place which is supposedly one of great honor and dignity. Please don't tell us that such behavior has been occurring for years because that won't make it right.

You need to cease the churlish behavior, cease the personality clashes and get on with seeking ways to better our country. We badly need more statesmen in our country. GOD-fearing men and women of integrity, decency, honor, character, intelligence who will put our country's needs first in all things. Those who are willing to stand up for truth, justice, fairness and the like irrespective of the consequences, and just govern our country with divine wisdom.


Christians, let's continue to pray for our beloved nation. Let's hold up every politician and leader before the Lord's mighty throne. Thanks.

"We're going to sort that out?" What kind of answer is that? It was 'he' and not 'we' who made the utterance. Stupse.

WELL I AM APPALLED BUT NOT SUPRISED, AFTER ALL "THE APPLE DONT FALL FAR FROM THE TREE", IF ARTHUR CAN DO IT, WHY DO WE THINK THAT THEY ALL FEEL THAT THEY CAN DO IT TOO?
LET YOUR VOTE REFLECT RESPONSIBLE LEADERSHIP
