Barbados Labour Party still split in factions – one side accuses other of technological sabotage! DLP victory for St John assured as late PM’s widow agrees to run!
Mrs Mara Thompson, Widow of Barbados’ 6th prime Minister has decided to throw her hand in the By-Election ring for the seat formerly held by the late David Thompson, you’ ll recall Nomination Day is January 5th and voting slated for day before Public Holiday – Errol Barrow Day who also happens to be a former MP from the same DLP of that very same Constituency.
Meanwhile, instead of coalescing all available forces to fight an almost unassailable victory for the DEM’s – the Opposition BLP remains divided and the latest development is renewing accusations that files were removed from the Opposition Leader’s office in West Wing in the City on Upper Broad Street. How can a crime be established when all equipment seems normal?

Hello? Hello? Hello?”
There are allegations that Opposition Leader O. S. Arthur is not in the country and is on a Cruise, the only credence we can lend the rumour is that Arthur definitely appeared to be absent when Deputy Opposition Leader Dale “Dirty Harry” Marshall launched the BLP’s St John Constituency office recently to a less than meagre turnout.
If Owen is Missing, perhaps a notice should be taken out? Oh wait, see above!
