Arthur has no control
Opposition Leader Owen Arthur heads a political party over which he has no control.
This bold statement was made on Wednesday night by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler at a Democratic Labour Party in Coach Hill, St John.
He said this situation now exists because of the way in which Arthur, a former prime minister of Barbados, ascended to his position as Leader of the Opposition, which Sinckler described as “a second coming”.
“He and his parliamentary colleagues, the male ones, took an opportunity to emasculate the political leadership of Mia Mottley,” he told the crowd gathered.
“So we know he has that strike against him” he added.
Sinckler also lambasted Arthur who he said promoted himself as a regional integrationist, but was now prosecuting Mara Thompson, the DLP candidate in the upcoming St John by-election, because she was born in St Lucia. (CM)
