John Briceño and Patrick Faber Spar in the House

Patrick Faber

On the matter of the Philip Goldson International Airport, the debate got heated on Monday between Leader of the Opposition John Briceño and leader elect of the U.D.P., Patrick Faber. Since his election as leader elect, Faber has mostly been doing party work. So when he called on Briceño for his party’s position on the reopening of the P.G.I.A., Briceño told Faber that instead, he should be worried about the leadership crisis in the United Democratic Party.

“If he wants to oppose the opening of the airport then that is what he should do. I did not hear him say that outright so he is playing games in a normal way that he does. Before the Prime Minister stands to wind up the debate I really want to hear the leader of the opposition who is the champion all to get the airport open. In fact in a more reckless way than ever back in those times. Now that all of thee guarded positions have been taken and regulations about to be put in to secure a safe opening of the airport I really love to hear his position.”

“I think the so called leader of the U.D.P. should be worried about, why is it that you don’t want to make him Prime Minister? Why is it that the honorable member from Pickstock is resigning? Because he said you are not get to lead him. They don’t want you boy. They don’t want you. You are suppose to sit down right here and watch where they got you and next time when you come back you are going to be sitting on this side. That is what you are worrying about.   It is because of that infantile behaviour the Prime Minister had to be personally calling ministers and standard bearers to support him and with all of that the man only won by nineteen votes. Papa Mena is laughing right behind your back right now. By nineteen votes you won boy. At least you should be humble. Be humble my boy. Anyway, Madam Speaker again to make my point very clear, I was in favour of opening. I prepared a paper because I thought then, as I believe now, that it was the right thing to do.”
