Sinckler and Estwick should go – Prescod

Government should accept responsibility for the “absolute bungling” of the water crisis facing the country and the problems at the Barbados Water Authority (BWA), the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) spokesman on water has charged.

At the same time, Shadow Minister of Water Resource Management Trevor Prescod has called on the Freundel Stuart administration to stop looking for scapegoats.

Prescod was reacting to calls for the resignation of BWA Chairman Dr Atlee Brathwaite.

“It is not fair for ministers to shirk responsibility and throw the chairman of the BWA under the bus. The chairman of the BWA clearly was given an assignment without the necessary financial and other resources and indeed, adequate policy direction,” Prescod argued.

The Member of Parliament for St Michael East suggested that if there were any heads to roll, they should be those of Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Chris Sinckler and Minister of Water Resource Management Dr David Estwick.

He contended that an ongoing squabble between the two had resulted “in all of this confusion” and had left Barbadians struggling with water problems.

    Trevor Prescod, really! The DLP administration is, indeed, a circus act with clowns jostling for the first position in the greatest idiocy that can be demonstrated in the arena of political foolery. But, your BLP are not a far cry behind. The island’s needs are not important to the ideals and political aspirations of a giddy head few. You, both, have spewed enough of your filth to be not trusted with the people’s business. There is no show of change from either of the parties that inspires Barbadians to feel that either or can provide the necessary impetus to make Barbados great again. It is a sad reality, but a daunting set of circumstances that proves time and time again that the visions of tunnel thinkers are marred in the blindness of one-eye-nism and the inevitable outcomes all point to one of the same thing each time -nothing for the masses but all for just the elite few.
