It’s not us in third party!
PROPAGANDA. That’s how some familiar faces in politics reacted to reports that they had joined forces with a newly formed third party called the Barbados Integrity Movement (BIM).
“I am not a member of any new political party. Unless they expelled me, I am still a member of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP),” former Member of Parliament and Cabinet minister Lynette Eastmond told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday.
The attorney-at-law who served as Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs under an Owen Arthur-led Government said she was still very much a political enthusiast and was looking forward to the next general election.
“Everybody should be involved in politics,” she said, while declining to speculate on the outcome of the next polls. (TS)
