“I will be writing my memoirs in three phases. One is called a country boy giving a perspective of what it was like growing up as a country boy in Barbados…and the one I like the most is my Jamaican days.
“I spent 10 years between 1971 and 1981 living in Jamaica I have started to frame that up as well what it was like living in Jamaica in those tempestuous times and of course I am arranging all of my Prime Ministers papers…and I will put them together so that there is a collection of Prime Ministers papers all in one place,” he told reporters.
Arthur, who served as prime minister for 13 years before he was defeated in 2008 and again in 2013, was among members of the main opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) sworn in as legislators on Monday following the February 21 poll that was narrowly won by the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) by a 16-14 margin.
Arthur, who said he was not “bitter” at losing the election to the DLP, said he was also looking forward to the new session of Parliament and that he intends to serve his full five year term.
