Where’s the morality, bishop?


Added 21 June 2018


These are a few questions for Bishop Joseph Atherley and his spiritual advisor, Rev. Trevor Daniel.

Where is the morality and spiritual integrity in Atherley – having convinced the constituents of St Michael West to vote for him as a member of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) team – simply switching to become an Opposition to the said BLP without first reverting to the said constituents for their consent or approval?

Don’t the principles of morality and spiritual integrity require that Atherley go back to the people for a new vote – a by-election?

Similarly, in light of the fact that Atherley received some 3 000 votes to the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) combined total of some 33 000 votes, where is the morality and spiritual integrity in him thwarting Prime Minister Mia Mottley’s proposal to amend the Constitution in order to permit the DLP to appoint the two Opposition senators?
