DR DAVID ESTWICK and his Cabinet colleagues seem to be heading in different directions.
Estwick confirmed last night that he was not asked to present his “alternative economic plan” to Cabinet yesterday afternoon and declared: “The Cabinet has agreed to a path and I will decide my next move.”
The three-term St Philip West parliamentary representative also savaged Sunday’s meeting to which he was invited at the home of Cabinet colleague and Democratic Labour Party general secretary Donville Inniss, saying it was “a deliberate political strategy”.
That near five-hour powwow – which last night Estwick described in language too strong to print – was attended by Cabinet ministers Adriel Brathwaite, Chris Sinckler, Maxine McClean, Stephen Lashley, as well as Speaker of the House of Assembly Michael Carrington and Chairman of Committees in the House, James Paul.
On Tuesday, Estwick, who is Minister of Agriculture and Water Resources, put the Freundel Stuart Cabinet on notice that if they ignored him on an alternative path to deal with public sector job cuts, they risked his breaking rank.
