What’s Next for the UDP?

As Faber holds on for dear life as the UDP’s Party Leader, it seems that those in the high echelons of the opposition are far away from singing kumbaya. Turmoil continues under the red and white tent, but as the old adage goes, “the show must go on”. Today, on The Morning Show, UDP’s Chairman, Michael Peyrefitte, conceded that lines were crossed in recent months, but that it must all end now.

Michael Peyrefitte, UDP Party Leader: “What we have to do is to get people in the same room and say let’s make a start with that. We get you in the same room no cellphones, no disruptions, no meetings, no appointments let’s sit in a room for a couple hours say what you have to say and then we move forward and then we take definitive steps to set meetings and to set as a priority us communicating with each other on a constant basis and it is from there, I guess it is upon that rock you build your party back again.” 

Troy Gabb, Morning Show Host: Have we reached a point of no return for some persons ? 

Michael Peyrefitte, UDP Party Leader: “We haven’t reached a point of no return but indeed lines have been crossed. I spoke to the party leader and to the Honorable John Saldivar last night and I basically told them listen you need to stop and I noticed right away from what I was told, because I don’t have social media, that both sides immediately stopped when I realized what was happening. Lines are always crossed you know the problem is I always say politics is a full contact sport. It’s not for the faint of heart and when you get involved with politics you have to be prepared to take some licks and give some licks. In my view some lines have crossed and I think that we have gotten to the point where it needs to stop, it needs to just stop and we sit down and we sort out our affairs because then we’re not doing any service to the country by being not a United Democratic Party.”
