Arthur: Failure of leadership


Share post:

OPPOSITION LEADER Owen Arthur says the global economic downturn is not the biggest issue facing Barbados, rather it is “a recession of leadership”.
The former Prime Minister said if it were possible, the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) would give its top annual honour – the Grantley Adams Award – to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart as the person who had done the most for the party in the last year.
Arthur was the final speaker Sunday night at the official opening of the Christ Church South constituency office on Maxwell Coast Road and attended by candidate Jerome Walcott, the former MP.
“The man has said that we have awoken a sleeping giant when we knew all along he was asleep,” Arthur said of,?Stuart. “If he in fact was asleep for the last two years, he really ought to return the money to the Treasury.
