Barbados Labour Party website: “Mia Amor Mottley, Political Leader of BLP”

Owen Arthur is not shown as Opposition Leader on the BLP website!

One month after former Prime Minister Owen Arthur led a coup that deposed Mia Mottley as the leader of the Barbados Labour Party, and at the end of a disasterous annual conference where Owen Arthur’s faction was accused of vote-rigging, the BLP website welcomes visitors with a photo of Mia Mottley and the words,

“Mia Amor Mottley, Q.C., M.P.

Political Leader of BLP”

This begs the question…

Is the BLP in such disarray that the pro-Mottley faction still has control of the party’s website?

  1. good move


    A web site up in such a short time.

    For Barbados that doesn’t often happen.

    Someone is paying attention.

  2. Sweet Mia

    to ‘good move’, the blp website been up for years. the point is (I think) that Arthur took over the leadership a month ago and the blp website says Mia Mottley is the ‘Political Leader’ whatever that is.

    Strange happenings go on round this place. was the blp website always say Mia is the leader and it never be changed since the coup? Was goin wit owen on the website as leader until the weekend and then it changed for the conference? What is happening who can say?

  3. get ready

    Soon Mia can expect a writ for libel and sedition by the Old Boy’s Network.

    How dare she!

    It can only get better.

    I don’t think there is anything ulterior; clearly the site just needs updating

    Hi Politics

    We will see. If, after this article the website remains the same, then the Arthur faction can’t update the website. There’s nothing about the annual conference on the website either. Nothing about the leadup or events.

    I’m not as sure as you are that it is an oversight. The BLP Blog is much the same way.


  6. I noticed it too, I loved all the juicy stuff here so I included mention of it in my analysis of the Annual Gen Conf over by me, may need Kevlar after this…

    Who has the password calls the tune!!

  8. just watching

    Most likely explanation is that OSA has bigger things to deal with than the website.

    BFP is once again trying to make a mountain out of less than a molehill here…..

    Oh, please, in this day and age getting access to the password to a website is not a problem.

    This simply shows that in the changing of the guard, the BLP has gone from young, vibrant leadership in touch with the times and technology, to the old guard out of touch with the times, technology and how to connect with young people. Hope they are not out of touch with economic issues as well

    What company host the website? A must be hosting it. The password word really is a sorry excuse as the company hosting the website would have total control…..TRY AGAIN.
