Former Prime Minister Owen Arthur has called on the National Organization of Women (NOW) and church leaders to speak out against what he termed a “nasty onslaught” by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler on June Fowler, chairman of the Barbados Investors and Policyholders Alliance (BIPA). Speaking Sunday night at a Barbados Labour Party (BLP) public meeting at Savannah Road, Bush Hall, St Michael, Arthur read from what he indicated was a transcript of Sinckler’s speech at Clevedale, Black Rock, St Michael, last Friday. He called the attack on Fowler “the purest political sewage that has ever infested a political platform in Barbados”. Pointing out that Fowler had only tried to correct a mistake which she perceived Sinckler had made when he spoke about the CLICO situation last week, Arthur lamented: “A decent Barbadian woman, just seeking to correct a mistake that Chris Sinckler put in the public domain and she is subject to abuse on a scale that churns and sickens the stomach."
