But Prime Minister Dean Barrow didn’t have a similar response for his colleague Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Patrick Faber who prior to Hon. Espat’s comments, had gone off on a tirade.

Faber was in full attack-mode, it seems, because in one of his statements he attacked the Opposition, Kremandala, COLA and even the National Teachers Union in one swoop.
