Faber Wants to Rebuild, But Does He Have Moral Authority to Lead?

Patrick Faber

Plagued by allegations of domestic abuse, Patrick Faber’s image, according to members of the party, is not the wholesome appearance that needs to be portrayed while the U.D.P. rebuilds.  But if you ask the embattled party leader about the root cause of the turmoil he is facing, he will tell you that it’s the old faces conspiring to have him deposed.   For his part, Shyne Barrow insists Faber does not have the moral standing necessary to lead the United Democratic Party.

“I’ve said to my colleagues, unu gih mih wahn lee chance mek ah rebuild di party, man.  Unu cyant di show up ya if people seh unu da di problem.  Unu cyant demand fi run again and be at the forefront when unu lose by all ah den margins deh.  Wih have to study weh di people seh, unu gimme wahn lee time.  Ah di seh it eena Creole mek unu undastand what happened.  Gimme wahn lee time mek ah piece di thing back together, mek ah put up wahn good force eena di National Assembly, the Senate and the House of Representatives, mek ah put up wahn good shadow cabinet with faces weh people wahn be encouraged and she “bwai, Faber really di put things back together and reform the U.D.P.”

“How is it then that you will lead that charge to set a standard for candidates, to set a standard for behavior if you are not at the paragon of your actions and your conduct?  So I definitely think having a leader that people can rally around and that has that authority where nobody cyant seh well, “How could you tell me…?”  Because that’s what the masses in the party are saying now, “Well, you said that you wanted to get rid of us and we should not run again and we should hide in the bushes because of our images, because our images are bad for the party.  So now what about you, Mr. Leader?”
