“How much do you miss the political life? How much do you miss being in the spotlight and being in the hot seat?”


Dean Barrow, Former Prime Minister

“What is there to miss? On a serious note, I am very happy with being a sideline observer, playing from time to time privately, or within a very small circle, armchair quarterback. That is enough for me. There are people in the Party, some of our colleagues, with whom I’m still very close and we chew the fat periodically. And so I, to a certain extent, am vicariously involved through them. And, that is absolutely fine for me.”
