Duguid issues apology
BARBADOS LABOUR PARTY Member of Parliament (MP), William Duguid, today said sorry to Barbadians for his shocking outburst in the House of Assembly last Tuesday.
Admitting he had fallen “far short” for the traditions and standards of Barbados’ 300-year-old Parliament, Duguid told a media conference at the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Office this morning that his outburst, which has been widely publicized on the Internet via Youtube and Facebook, was provoked by a Democratic Labour Party MP’s insult of his family members.
“I now humbly apologize to my constituents and to the wider Barbadian public. The outburst was the result of the most grievous of provocations, which came from the mouth of a DLP parliamentarian. It would be improper of me to repeat the insulting words used, but I will say that they constituted the gravest possible insult to my wife and to my children,” he stated. (RJ)
