Ignore David Estwick, Arthur tells BLP
Ignore Dr David Estwick and focus on the work of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP).
Former prime minister and BLP leader Owen Arthur gave that advice to the party faithful tonight, as he urged them not to be distracted by the actions of the Agriculture Minister or expect the Government to fall by street protests.
Speaking at the Christ Church West Central BLP branch meeting at the Christ Church Foundation School, Arthur told some 50 members that he had come on a “pilgrim’s progress”, as he advised members to concentrate on the work of BLP as a political entity.
He described the the public statements by Estwick of dissatisfaction with government’s economic policies as “a pantomime being played out in the theatre of the absurd”.
Arthur advised party faithful to ignore the actions of Estwick, saying: “We have to stop being taken in by whether Estwick will come to Parliament or not. Estwick is fishing in a dry pond. Leave Estwick alone…Estwick’s business is not our business, our business is the people’s business.”
