Shyne Describes Faber’s Domestic Woes as a Pattern

Shyne Barrow

The move to recall Faber’s leadership of the United Democratic Party, according to the new Leader of the Opposition, is in part the result of Faber’s refusal to seek help for what is being described as a pattern of domestic issues.  Barrow told News Five earlier today that Faber’s apology was a first step, however, he needed to go beyond just saying that he’s sorry.  But what about Shyne’s own detractors?  They have also raked him over the coal for a domestic incident that allegedly involved him and his wife.  It’s an accusation that he maintains has been publicly retracted.


Shyne Barrow, Leader of the Opposition

“Here, I feel, is an opportunity for us to take corrective measure, to go beyond the perfunctory apology and say, “You know what, there is a pattern, I need help to seek help.”  And that was the suggestion of the executives, I know at least one executive made that suggestion to Patrick, that why don’t you take a leave of absence and say to the public you accept that you have a problem and you are going to seek help and you will return.  He outright rejected that suggestion and that really is what led to his demise. You know the interesting thing about those that are now saying he without sin cast the first stone, so that means none of us could be in parliament, none of us could at any level of leadership because certainly everyone is with sin. Though I had been accused, there was no, that process ended within a few hours.  There was a retraction and my wife went on to endorse me, but that has made me hypersensitive to the matter of gender-based violence, as it should.”
