Prime Minister Gaston Browne has blasted his party colleague’s poor performance and his “complacency” as reasons for his loss in All Saints East and St. Luke.
“This idea of going into the Senate and serving as a Minister… Not when you lose twice,” Browne told Pointe FM.
Browne recently released his eleven appointees to the Senate and former Senator Colin “Tin Tin” James’s name was noticeably absent from that list.
The Colin that made the list was Colin O’Neal, a radio host on the Browne-family-owned Pointe FM.
It was on this programme that the Prime Minister explained that, “when you lose twice in my government, you can’t command a portfolio.”
“He has only himself to blame,” Browne stated..
“All of the other candidates followed the game plan to the tee and they all came through. He’s the only who deviated.”
Browne also pointed to the 100 votes that he had lost to former MP Joanne Massiah in All Saints East and St. Luke in 2014 and commented that Massiah’s vote count plus the “national swing towards the Labour Party” that should have guaranteed his victory this time around.
Browne went onto to say, however, that James would be “taken care off” but did not say in what capacity and to what extent.
