UPP man gets boot
The United Progressive Party (UPP) has suffered its first casualty.
During a 12-minute live broadcast on Facebook Sunday, party leader Lynette Eastmond confirmed that candidate Charleston Taylor was out of the race.
Taylor, who was running in St Philip West, came under criticism last week for a Facebook post in which he referenced that if marijuana was not legalised in this island, “blood will flow in the streets”.
Eastmond said the UPP intended to return its judgement today but on Saturday Taylor did an interview in which he maintained he did not regret posting his comments. (SDB Media)
