SAY WHAT’S WRONG with Mia Mottley or shut up.
That’s the challenge political scientist Tennyson Joseph has thrown out to former prime minister and Barbados Labour Party (BLP) leader Owen Arthur.
Joseph, a University of the West Indies lecturer, was part of a four-member panel on Brass Tacks Sunday on Voice Of Barbados yesterday which weighed Arthur in the balance and found him wanting in his recent comment at not having confidence in Mottley’s leadership.
Other panellists in the David Ellis-hosted programme, titled Barbados At The Crossroads, included political strategists Peter Wickham and Reudon Eversley, and Editor Emeritus of The NATION, Harold Hoyte.
Joseph said based on his elevation of Mottley to be his deputy during his tenure, there was no compelling argument Arthur could present now not to endorse her.
And he said Arthur’s recent letter read at a meeting of the BLP’s parliamentary group in which he rejected Mottley’s leadership, as sounded “like a child stomping”.
“If there is something that we don’t know and you feel so strongly about, let the country know,” Joseph told Arthur.
