P.M. Barrow Admits He Has Few Worlds Left to Conquer

Dean Barrow

According to the Prime Minister, today was a good day in terms of his back problems, but there are increasingly fewer of them. With his main goal of this term – a renegotiated Superbond – off the table, he admits there are few other things left to accomplish, canning corruption among them. So he is looking for his exit spot – perhaps by Independence Day of this year, or after the municipal elections next year if the U.D.P. carries another majority? We asked and he responded.

“Are you eyeing particular milestones? I believe September, Independence Day, has been mentioned; municipal elections next year has been mentioned. Are you eyeing particular milestones in that regard?”

“I’ve said, remember, that I didn’t want to go until we had sorted out the Superbond situation, and I think that’s been sorted out; so there has been nothing else that I’ve set myself – I don’t want you to – well, not you, but I know Jules, he will start to say that I am behaving like Alexander the Great, who cried when he had no more worlds to conquer. Not that at all, sir – it’s just that my limited objectives, and the last one that I set, has now been handled so I do feel that I am at greater liberty to make that decision. But I insist it’s not that I want to go; it’s not that I have had it; it’s not that I am fed up to here with politics. It really is that I have to be fair to all concerned, and this thing which is not getting any better – if in fact, it continues to get worse and it begins to affect me mentally, attitudinally as well as physically, I will have to look at the option of an earlier departure.”

 

Prime Minister Barrow has served nine years in office, like predecessors Manuel Esquivel and Said Musa, but over three terms and not two. He is about two months behind Musa in terms of total time served in office.
