Sinckler at one with Arthur on Dr Agard affair

Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler isn’t too concerned at all about the hype surrounding the expulsion of Dr Maria Agard from the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), although he agrees with former BLP leader Owen Arthur’s position on the matter.

“It’s not an issue for me, it is an issue for the BLP people to sort out among themselves and I am not really going to make any comments personally from my own side.

“But if I did have to make a comment, I think Owen Arthur’s comments last night pretty much sum it up. Let’s just put it this way, he would have spoken for me in what he would have said,” Sinckler told Barbados TODAY this afternoon.

Arthur launched a vicious attack on BLP Leader Mia Mottley yesterday following the decision of the party’s National Council to expel the Christ Church West MP after she and her attorneys walked out of a meeting
on Sunday.

Labelling the action as nothing short of “despotism”, a visibly upset and emotional Arthur broke his silence on the matter in an interview with reporters on the steps of Parliament, saying he had a voice in this country and he intended for it to be heard.

“Mia Mottley is a menace . . . she is a menace because she is a despot [and] she believes that she has a right to be a despot. She tried to be a despot with me and I want to end by saying this, my parents sent me to school so that I will not be a boy in the yard for any despot in this country and I will be true to them and I will be true to my children by fighting this despotism that is taking place in Barbados,” Arthur contended.
