Minster Chris Sinckler in October 2013 informed parliament during a no confidence motion brought against him that his life had been threatened – see Barbados Today report. BU is surprised there has been little public reaction to this startling revelation. A threat to kill anyone is a serious matter and if it involves a minister of the crown more so. Anyone observing Minister Sinckler since the announcement has hardly observed trepidation on his part as he moves around Barbados.
If BU had the authority to commission an investigation into this matter we would consider it money well spent. For a second time in 24 hours when opining about the action of a leading political figure we hesitate to call Sinckler a liar. Sinckler, the government and the police owe it to Barbadians to bring closure to this matter. Barbadians do not threaten our politicians. We do not even throw eggs or tomatoes in their direction when they upset us. There was that one time we marched for naught.
