What started as a political spat in the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) over the controversial municipal solid waste tax has erupted into a full public brawl as others have entered the fray.
Party chairman Senator Jerome Walcott said a public declaration by St James Central Member of Parliament (MP) Kerrie Symmonds on Sunday about not speaking at last Sunday night’s mass meeting in Bridgetown would be dealt with at the parliamentary group.
But an accusation of “snakes in the grass” by St Michael East MP Trevor Prescod at the same meeting has brought a fresh war of words. 
Tension between Symmonds and party leader Mia Mottley spilled over yesterday from Sunday when Symmonds made it known that he did not agree with Mottley’s approach on the solid waste tax.
