THE IMPASSE INVOLVING Opposition Member of Parliament Dr Maria Agard and her Barbados Labour Party (BLP) leader Mia Mottley seems to be escalating.

A meeting aimed at seeking a resolution did not materialise Wednesday evening, sources said, after Mottley reportedly was a no-show.

Reports are that Agard, supported by parliamentary colleagues, attorneys George Payne and Ronald Toppin, turned up at the party’s Roebuck Street headquarters for the 5 p.m. meeting and waited a considerable period before leaving.

Sources indicated the proposed meeting was also to include party elders Sir Richard “Johnny” Cheltenham and former Minister of Public Works Vic Johnson. (TS)
