Share post:

Nine-time calypso monarch and Cultural Ambassador Anthony Gabby Carter has given his fellow calypsonian John King a ringing endorsement as the Barbados Labour Party candidate for St Philip West.

Also making a surprise appearance at a BLP meeting at Six Roads, St Philip on a chilly Friday night, was former Trinidad and Tobago calypso king, Winston Gypsy Peters.

Peters, a former Member of Parliament in the twin-island Republic, said he encouraged King to get involved in politics.

He said King is a man of integrity who understands the people’s needs.

Peters also pledged his support for BLP party leader Mia Mottley to lead Barbados.

He said Barbados means a lot to him as it is a place where his children live.

Meanwhile, Barbados Labour Party candidate for St Philip West John King extended sympathy to his Democratic Labour Party opponent Dr David Estwick on the passing of his mother.

King put politics aside briefly as he started his speech. (EZS)
