Do the work, future MPs


Share post:

FORMER?Cabinet Minister Sir Richard “Johnny”?Cheltenham says there are too many people not prepared to work hard, but who aspire for high political office waiting for a tsunami  “to wash them  into Parliament”.
Speaking at the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Women’s League meeting at party headquarters on Roebuck Street yesterday, Sir Richard said there were  a lot of “lazies around hoping for high tide”.
“There are those who want to be MPs, who are not prepared to work consistently hard but seem to think that if the tide is high enough, they can wash ashore, they come true, they can be a winner,” said Sir Richard, who spoke on the life and times of founder/leader of the BLP, National Hero Sir Grantley Adams.
Sir Richard, 71, who from 1991 to 2003 represented St Joseph,  the constituency of Sir Grantley, told the DAILY?NATION, there was  a crisis of leadership  in the country.
