“APOLOGISE, MINISTER SINCKLER!” by President of the Young Women’s Christian Association of Barbados (YWCA), Ms. Andrea C. Taylor
Unacceptable! This is how the Young Women’s Christian Association view the recent statement made by the Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs, Christopher Sinckler relative to the Opposition Leader.
At a time when national attention is being drawn to the issue of domestic violence in this county and when we are experiencing an obvious decline in our values relative to our treatment of each other, we cannot afford such irresponsible and disrespectful comments from our leaders. Our youth and citizens in general need to have confidence in our politicians to inspire and motivate, particularly at this time of economic uncertainty.
In light of this we expect that Minister Sinckler will come to Christian understanding and issue an apology for this unfortunate and unacceptable comment.
