Why her?

Eastmond embarrassed by BLP’s actions

A former Government minister is baffled as why the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) is so intent on punishing Dr Maria Agard.

Lynette Eastmond, who contested the 2013 general elections in St Philip West on a BLP ticket, represented Dr Agard, along with Hal Gollop, QC, at yesterday’s disciplinary meeting with the BLP’s National Council.

Dr Agard, who along with her attorneys eventually walked out of the meeting in protest, was later expelled from the BLP.

However Eastmond is at a loss as to why.

“For me politically I just cannot figure out having had political colleagues on both sides – from the BLP and Democratic Labour Party – I cannot figure what Dr Agard has done that so offends the leadership of the BLP. I just do not understand what it is,” she told members of the media shortly after the trio exited last night’s meeting.

“There are all types of politicians over the place as all of you know and I do not understand why it is that as  Barbadians would say, they are picking on her when people have been guilty of all other kinds of things.”

Furthermore, Eastmond said she was disappointed and embarrassed by the BLP’s management of the situation.

“It is just absolutely remarkable. I am shocked by it and I am embarrassed, because this is a party I have spoken very highly of and I am totally embarrassed by what’s happening.” (RB)

    We are not , all DEMS, or BLPs, people, just consider for a moment , we are an educated island people, but thinking back , to the beginning of the year, remembering , the arrogant , rude , disgusting behaviour, of many politicians , and others at the upper end of management in Barbados. Its about time , this bad behaviour must stop, which is being imposed on our kids, the same kids we moan about for they behaviour, so where they are getting it from.

    This matter , need not to have been , out to the public domain. could have been handle more constructively.

    But you must also smile , seeing how in the past the government and the unions , didn’t behave any different,.

    Amidst all the legal arguments re procedure ( which is nothing but a red herring), the substantive and fundamental issue is ” Are the charges against Dr. Agard true or false?”
