I am not surprised at the attacks that are being launched at the leader of the opposition Owen Arthur by the supporters of the DLP. They remind me of rats that are trapped in an area without an escape route and are prepared to attack any one or anything that gets in their way of survival. But the public understands the problem the Dems are having. With their King dead and the Kingmaker finding difficulty extending his tentacles into the organ of the party as he would like, they now lies an eager eleven fighting to remove the present leader. Having no one to save their sorry asses in the next election, their supporters are looking to attack the opposition leader on any and all fronts. Good luck with that.
Here is some advice for you [DLP]. Check your house before you go throwing stones at glass windows. I hope you are aware that you have lots of glass in your windows also. Let me advise you of a few inhouse matters you may want to investigate instead of wasting senseless attacks on Mr Arthur’s apparition and private life. Take some time out to investigate why work has suddenly slowed down at the Barbados Water Authority’s new location. Instead of attacking Mr Arthur you should find out why the Minister of Agriculture – all of a sudden – threatened to resign from the Cabinet. Is it for the reason he has put forward or is it an escape route for him when the sky starts to fall in on him?
You must also take time out to investigate why the tender document was not recalled and sent back out for tendering after two of the three contractors who sent in tender documents for the new complex asked for clarification on various sections of the document and their queries were not answered by the tendering committee. However the contract was awarded to the third construction firm in the bid. You should also take the time to ask yourself the question: why was the document not withdrawn and sent back to tender again? Instead of attacking Mr Arthur, investigate for yourself why the cabinet has not given the OK to the central bank to back the forty million dollar loan on behalf of the government to carry out the same project.
Investigate why over two hundred and twenty thousand (220,000) square feet of land at the cost $8.39 per year for ninety-nine years has been leased to a construction magnate at Coverly by the the NHC. It means that for two generations the name Bjerkhamn will make millions of dollars off Government and two generations of Barbadians businessmen and women will have to pay extravagant rental fees to that name.
Investigate why one of your leading minister’s name is being discussed in bars all around Barbados about his fortune and the amount he has been able to accumulate in such a short time (four and a half years), and why he is now known as 5 and 10 in his community.
You must investigate why a Minister is claiming 77 houses at rivers when only seven has been built. These are just a few matters that can occupied your mind instead of attacking the opposition leader. If at the end and you still have time to attack Mr. Arthur I will be back. This is just the tip of the iceberg…. No pun intended.
