Arthur raps BLP over Bill
FORMER PRIME MINISTER Owen Arthur delivered a further blow to the Barbados Labour Party and its leader in the House of Assembly yesterday.
In a no-holds-barred contribution, the independent MP accused Mottley and other Opposition members of engaging in a “juvenile and jejune exercise” unworthy of a Parliament.
He launched the scathing attack in response to their stance on the Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016.
Arthur, the Member of Parliament for St Peter, who parted ways with the BLP two years ago, charged that the Opposition had brought an argument to the House of Assembly that had no bearing on the matter before the Parliament.
The senior parliamentarian argued that the amendment was consistent with what he regarded as one of the most important accomplishments of the former BLP-government, which he led. (WILLCOMM)
