Not me and that!

Former Prime Minister Owen Arthur has refused to be drawn into the raging controversy between Opposition Leader Mia Mottley and parliamentary representative for St James Central Kerrie Symmonds.

When pressed for comment by members of the media in Parliament Yard today, Arthur, who is an ardent cricket supporter, quickly switched the conversation to the current test series between India and England in the UK, saying with a broad smile:

“The match between India and England was a most exciting affair.”

He further stated in jest: “Leave me alone, I am tired of being the centre of controversy.”

    Owen need to stop acting like a spoilt child and thank God for the time he given him to Govern this beautiful Nation. Verona show me what part of Owen is statesman like ,it mean you need to revisit our history and look at Mr. Barrow ,Sir Grantley and Sir Lloyd. Owen is too power hungry and acting like Barbados owe him something.

    Owen is right, he recognized a long time ago that Mia is an idiot and not ready for leadership. A true leader needs to review all the facts are plan an effective strategy, clearly kerie did that but Mia prefers to be a bull in a china shop.
