And while Tony Herrera says it has nothing to do with grudges or grievances, Philip Willoughby preferred to remain mum on the issue.
Philip Willoughby: “Very proud. Ecstatic and I’m glad to be here doing this along with the caucus for change.”
Reporter: But how would you answer the counter criticism that man you had it out for Mr.Faber from he allegedly I heard he never really did put you out of the office at Roger’s Stadium. It’s just a beef you got against the man. How would you answer that criticism ?

UDP’s Freetown Standard Bearer, Orson Elrington, tip-toed around the question when asked to give his views on the current internal friction.
Orson “OJ” Elrington: “I have had several discussions with many of the parties involved in the current situation as you call it and as I’ve expressed to them it is my hope that cooler heads will prevail and that we will do what is in the best interest of the party and what is in the best interest of the country by extension. We at this point in time do not need to focus our energies on any enemy except the enemy of trying to fight crime, of trying to fight poverty, of trying to ensure that we have good governance. And so those things should be our focus and I continue to ensure that those things my focus and whoever will listen that I ask them to ensure that those things are their focus.”
