Owen Arthur's pre-emptive strike
I guess silly season's officially on now. At a branch meeting in St. George yesterday, PM Owen Arthur appealed to voters not to reject his Barbados Labour Party "just for the sake of change".
Predicting that the Opposition Democratic Labour Party would be pushing the "time to change" ticket in their upcoming election campaign, Arthur stated that "this is not the time to gamble with the future of this country". He warned voters not to put "a bunch of adventurers, a bunch of wild boys" in control of the government.
Well. You've got to hand it to the PM. He ambushed the DLP just like George Dubya Bush-whacked Saddam. Just because you can't see the weapons of mass destruction doesn't mean they aren't there, right PM?
The coming months should be very interesting....
