Barbados DLP Candidate Targets Gline Clarke In No Uncertain Terms
“This is one election where the incumbent (Minister of Public Works Gline Clarke) has to get back down on the ground. He cannot send people to canvass for him, he cannot canvass by telephone or via email. I’m going to force him back down on the ground to canvass.”
“…Today is officially the launch of operation ‘Get Gline Clarke’…”
… Colin Spencer. DLP Candidate, St. George North in The Nation News
Colin Spencer says that he and the DLP will stick to important issues during his campaign leading up to the election. That means that Gline Clarke is in big trouble: for there are questions that Mr. Clarke cannot ignore, but for which he has no satisfactory answer.
What Can Clarke & The Government Possibly Say About Unethical Land Dealings and Accountability?
Minister of Public Works Gline Clarke sleeps every night in a house built upon land that was originally expropriated by the Government of Barbados for “Public Housing”.
No Integrity Legislation exists in Barbados. As a result, powerful Government Ministers like Mr. Clarke do not have to declare their assets or explain how it is that, as a Member of the Cabinet that approves the expropriation of privately-owned lands, a Minister of Government comes to live upon a choice building lot that was forceably taken from an owner – using the full power of the Government.
DLP Candidate Colin Spencer Is Correct
In the midst of a very aggressive and issue-centred DLP campaign, Minister of Public Works Gline Clarke will have to go public to respond…
But that means that Mr. Clarke will have to come out from hiding behind the skirts of his “special lady friend” to explain his actions to the public, and so far, he hasn’t found the courage.
