AN EMBARASSMENT and total disrespect.

That is how Opposition Member of Parliament Dwight Sutherland has described the treatment meted out to him and his St George South constituents by the Transport Board yesterday.

A livid Sutherland called the media after driving from St George where he said about 400 of his constituents were stranded waiting to be picked up from 9 a.m. to be taken to the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) annual Heroes Day picnic at East Coast Road, St Andrew. He arrived at Weymouth after noon.

Sutherland produced a contract and receipt for seven buses he had chartered from the Board.
