PM Barrow Blames PUP for Obscene Land Giveaways

In responding to Hyde’s criticism, Prime Minister Barrow says that the vast amount of properties acquired by the so-called big landowners took place under the tenure of the People’s United Party.  Likewise, he says that there is a process in going about reacquiring land and that oftentimes that series of action is frustrated by legal proceedings.

“All that huge acreage that you are talking about, you can bet the cook, [they were] given by your party, by your People’s United Party.  And it’s not so easy to come and say a wahn acquire it in lieu of taxes.  There is a procedure to go through and that procedure is always when you make the effort completely stymied because di big man dehn weh you di talk bout weh unu give di land to da people with monies to pay all sorts of lawyers and ah hope dehn woulda give you some ah dehn job you know because something ih look like you got wahn lee problem with Barrow and Williams.  We don’t ambulance chase and I’ve asked Rodwell fu try send yoh some lee business.”
