(Barbados Nation) Blasting the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) as a Government in shambles “with a serious void of leadership”, Opposition Leader Owen Arthur has declared that the current administration has a moral obligation to “fix” the CLICO insurance problem.
At the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) headquarters on Roebuck Street last night, Arthur said that the Dems, with former Prime Minister David Thompson tied to the CLICO fallout, should make the issue a priority.
“They have a moral obligation because a former leader of the Democratic Labour Party was at the scene of every decision that was made by CLICO, that has brought CLICO to this sorry mess and it is about time that we start talking in these terms about David Thompson.
“The Dems have an obligation because CLICO was not brought to this state without David Thompson being aware of everything that CLICO was doing. The DLP, who are the inheritors of his legacy, have a duty to those who have invested in CLICO, to fix that problem and fix it now,” he said.
