Owen quits BLP
In a dramatic move yesterday, former Prime Minister Owen Arthur quit the Opposition Barbados Labour Party.
He walked alone into the party’s headquarters on Roebuck Street, The City, and handed in his resignation from the party he served for 43 years.
Arthur said the decision was a painful one, but the party “has lost its way and has lost its soul”.
He will continue to represent St Peter as an Independent.
