Arthur: Stuart loitering on job
OWEN?ARTHUR thinks that Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is loitering on the job.
The former Prime Minister was speaking at the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) launch of its campaign for the January 20 polls at Edgecliff last night.
Arthur said that Stuart had sadly not stepped up to the plate since the death of former Prime Minister David Thompson in October.
Freundel Stuart is performing and carrying the same portfolio that David Thompson said that he wanted to carry in his final weeks. That is what Barbados has come too. Thompson said he wanted to reduce his responsibilities because his sickness would not allow him to work past a certain stage.
“So the Prime Minister of Barabdos in 2011 is exercising the same set of responsibilities as a dying Prime Minister in 2010. Barbados has a crisis, a serious crisis and it starts at the top.” (MK)
