FORMER PRIME MINISTER FACING POTENTIAL LAWSUIT: FATHER OF OPPOSITION LEADER CLEARS AIR (#1)

Barbadian Politicking sank to a new low in making a grown man cry. The F. Lee Bailey, Johnnie Cochrane or Perry Mason of Barbados… Elliott D. Mottley QC broke down and wept when clarifying against a statement made at a ruling DLP political meeting which was then emphasised by former PM Owen Arthur in a subsequent press transmitted on Facebook Live by Barbados Today.

Both the meeting and Arthur (an erstwhile BLP has-been) sought to insinuate Mr Mottley’s daughter, Opposition Leader and Political Leader of the BLP – Mia Amor Mottley – tried to acquire a tax break for her father in Owen’s cabinet of ’94 to ’98 in these YouTube depositions of which this is the 1st part…

Mr Mottley cites evidence and documentation showing his daughter was not even Deputy PM at this point! His anger is clear, he sought to pay the principal and get clemency on interest & penalties from a 1986 tax burden, a decision which only involves the Finance Minister not Cabinet, take a wild guess who the Finance Minister was? I wonder why Mr Arthur was incapable of recollection? In siding with the DLP like a political quisling perhaps created a stupor not unlike intoxication of power similar to when he was a Prime Minister?
