Opposition leader Owen Arthur Friday night described the late Sir Branford Taitt as a great orator, a man who had a passion for Parliament and one who set high parliamentary standards.
Before addressing a large crowd at a Barbados Labour Party (BLP) meeting at Oistins, Christ Church, Arthur expressed condolences to Sir Branford and his family on behalf of the party.
He said Sir Branford was a man usually full of life and it was difficult to come to terms with the fact that the former president of the senate was dead.
“He was my friend”, he told supporters.
Arthur added that part of his appreciation for the late politician who served the Democratic Labour Party for many years, was that although they were happy warriors who shared politics from opposing sides, their camaraderie extended well pass the political arena.
He noted that young politicians could learn from this type of politics.
Sir Branford who had been ailing for some time, passed away yesterday morning at his home (CH).
