On the heels of a massive election loss for outgoing Prime Minister of Barbados Freundel Stuart, columnist Sir Ronald Sanders, ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda to the US, charges that his termination by his country's electorate can be traced to his recent assault on the institution that is the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ). Sir Ronald offers that the scary proclamation of his intention to withdraw Barbados — one of the first four signatories — from the appellate jurisdiction of the CCJ, without consultation, created a worrisome situation for the country. The ambassador says it was a measure of haughtiness and rashness symptomatic of the'illness' of hubris. Read his diplomatic chastisement on Page 4 of The Agenda.
