As a realist it is clear to me that in order to WIN the next general election the internal BLP drama between Owen Arthur and Mia Motley must be resolved.
Each day the drama continues diminishes the party’s ability to effectively focus on regaining government from the hands of the DLP. As a BLP supporter it is time for BLP leadership and Owen Arthur to take the “GLOVES OFF” and give Barbados publicly the “REAL” reasons why MM should not and cannot lead the BLP party or Barbados … being a question of “LEADERSHIP and MORALITY” not “GENDER” as many would have you believe.
This approach against “our own” is unfortunate and will initially surely cause some heightened political pain for the BLP. OA is the only one in Barbados with the political clout and weaponry to withstand the MM
counter attack which is sure to come.
There is a fear of reprisal component to going up against MM and her cronies that many are not prepared to risk especially in a tough economy where jobs are important. This “cultivated” fear component which is a part of the MM political mode of operations, is in itself a factor in the reason why MM should not lead the BLP party or Barbados, NO matter how brilliant she is.
I understand the historic effort of seeking to become the first female PM in Barbados, however we expect our elected officials to put the people of Barbados “FIRST” before personal glory seeking first.
I like many welcome the day that a “woman” will lead our great nation as PM, unfortunately MM is not that woman.
