Owen Arthur faction declares war: Mia Mottley ejected from BLP website
Will Prime Minister Freundal Stuart call an election with the BLP in chaos?
When Owen Arthur and his pals deposed then-Opposition Leader Mia Mottley last October, did they think the BLP could heal itself and come together in time for a snap election call? If so, it looks like they miscalculated.
As we pointed out during a recent series of articles, it isn’t smooth sailing at the BLP. For two months after Owen Arthur took back the leadership, Mia’s people refused to surrender the passwords to the party’s website and blogs. We’ve heard rumours about some bank accounts too!
What’s happening now?
Ian Bourne is reporting that the Owen Arthur faction of the BLP has now gained control of the domain name for the Barbados Labour Party and they have thrown up a very amateurish website with no mention of Mia Mottley! Tit for tat, I guess.
The BLP blog is likewise looking like the work of an 11 year old with a “Websites for Dummies” book in one hand and Snickers bar in the other.
With chaos and war still raging within the Barbados Labour Party, will Prime Minister Freundal Stuart smell blood in the water and strike now?
