(Barbados Today) Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development Donville Inniss has weighed in on the public row between his Cabinet colleague, Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, and Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados Dr DeLisle Worrell.
However, unlike his other colleague, Minister of Housing Denis Kellman, who on Friday made it clear that Government would not back down in its efforts to fire the Governor, Inniss did not come out in support of Sinckler.
Instead, Inniss Sunday told a joint meeting of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) St James Central, St James South, St Michael North and St Michael North East branches that neither the under-pressure Sinckler nor the embattled Worrell was bigger than Barbados.
“Today there is this issue with the Governor of the Central Bank versus the Government and Minister of Finance. They say these matters are before the court and therefore you should not speak on them but there are so many matters before the court that if you are told not to speak on any of them, you would have nothing to say on anything in this country . . . . What I would simply say is that Barbados is bigger than Dr DeLisle Worrell, Barbados is bigger than Chris Sinckler, Barbados is bigger than Donville Inniss . . . it is bigger than each one of us,” the minister said.
