Todd gives Mia failing grade
Illogical and off base!
That’s how a minister of state today described opposition parliamentarian Mia Mottley’s response to Monday’s presentation of Government’s Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure for the 2012-13 financial year.
Patrick Todd, Minister of State in the Ministry of Housing, also took Mottley to task for heavily criticizing last year’s David Thompson Memorial Football Classic.
Todd told Lower House members that Mottley came to Parliament well made-up and dressed-up for the occasion, but that her actual response “defied logic and lacked substance”.
“It is clear the Barbados Labour Party does not demonstrate the necessary maturity to propel Barbadian society forward. The people will not accept them opposing everything for opposing sake.
“I gave her (Mottley) a failing grade when it comes to substance. She knows better than to come to this honourable chamber with illogical arguments,” Todd said.
The MP for the City of Bridgetown said he was “amazed” to hear Mottley complain about Government increasing the financial allocation to the Rural Development Commission (RDC) and the Urban Development Commission (UDC) in the next financial year. (BA)
