Stuart: My call
Asking what the fuss was all about, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart insisted last night that elections would be called when he says so and that the date had been fixed in his mind since the St John by-election two years ago.
Giving his “unequivocal and emphatic endorsement” to Democratic Labour Party (DLP)?candidate for St Michael South East Patrick Tannis at the opening of the latter’s constituency office in Marsden Road, The Pine, Stuart also said the Opposition Barbados Labour Party’s boycott of Parliament Tuesday was a happy one.
“It was the happiest day I spent at Parliament since we were there. All of the sources of pollution were absent, nobody had to fear that their mother was going to be cursed, and of course, we didn’t have to worry – so we thought – that when lunchtime came, we could get in a queue and orderly go and get our lunch,” he told the gathering.
He said the Opposition had not boxed him into a corner as some had suggested and its members would simply have to wait.
