Arthur on the move

Former Prime Minister Owen Arthur wants the impasse with Opposition Leader Mia Mottley settled without acrimony. “I am trying to be civil about this matter,” said Arthur, in a brief comment to the DAILY NATION at his West Terrace, St James home yesterday afternoon. Arthur, who was conspicuously absent last Tuesday for the meeting of members of the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) parliamentary group, had just arrived home after attending a meeting at an undisclosed location with MPs who appear to favour him as BLP leader. Arthur greeted the NATION team at the front door, opened it slightly, and said he was cooking and disliked being disturbed. He, however, asked if the NATION had a copy of the letter sent to Mottley requesting her to attend a meeting on October 18. When the team responded in the affirmative, Arthur said he would talk to us at a later date. (MB)
