Thompson: Chris ‘hated’ because of policies


Share post:

‘Everybody hates Chris’.

This was the theme of former Barbados Labour Party cabinet minister Liz Thompson’s speech at Deacons Farm, St Michael on Wednesday night.

Thompson said Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler is not “hated” because of his background, but because of the policies that were put in place since he was the Minister of Finance. 

“People hate Chris not because he went to the Garrison [Secondary School], but because he is stopping their children from going to the university.”

People hate Chris because of all the extra taxes; the National Social Responsibility Levy and the fact he said he would have raised VAT from 15 per cent for a few months but three years later it’s still here,” she said. (TG)
