tend to just buy the Sunday papers and rarely watch national news so it was with amusement that I learnt of the kefuffle with the Minister of Finance suggesting that the Leader
of the Opposition (who just happens to be a woman) to go …………… lol.
The Naughty Boy!
Yes we know
the behavior was akin to a little boy tantrum and more disturbing because this was
the second occurrence in recent times that the esteemed Minister had made a
deprecating remark towards a woman.
to get caught up in the political venting and posturing, suffice it to say that the
Opposition Leader, Mia Mottley called for a parliamentary vote of no-confidence
and a public petition was targeted at the Minister of Finance, Chris Sinckler wherein thousands of signatures
went along to the Rally in Queens Park which was supposed to be non political and
I must admit the early speakers kept it cool but by late evening the trash talk
and good old Caribbean ‘bacchanal” played out.Ms Mottley came on stage to thunderous applause, she is such an eloquent speaker!
Queen's Park, beautiful setting for a Rallly
rationale behind the motion was to have the Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart
remove the Minister of Finance from his portfolio.
dismissed the rally to be a political stunt to gain mileage.
it was and I’m not political, but I do support Ms Mottley for taking exception
to the Minister of Finance comment that she,
the Leader of the Oppostion Mia Mottley should “strip naked and run down Broad
Street in her attempt to get attention”.
Chris, Mia Amor Mottley, Queens’s Counsel, Member of Parliament and Leader of
the Opposition gets attention without trying.
is a woman who receives accolades for her oratorical skills, is beloved by her constituents,
young old and in between, is at ease with the boys on the block, at home with
Heads of Government, comes from a wealthy middle class family; at 29 was one of the youngest Barbadians ever
to hold a ministerial portfolio, a political lineage to equal that of Errol
Barrow and you say she is seeking attention .... I don't think so.
Mr. Minister, if she does not become the next Prime Minister of
Barbados I’ll eat my hat; ooops! So maybe you should go and wash your mouth out with
Any more disparaging remarks
towards women and my female friends and I may just vote Sisterhood!
