BLP’S gift’


Share post:

The Barbados Labour Party (BLP) says it is ready to bring the economy back to life.
The party’s Valentine’s Day gift last night turned out to be a philosophical promise to get employment back on track, reduce taxes and even give back money it said was previously taken away by the Democratic Labour Party (DLP).
The BLP made its largest push of the 2013 general election campaign at its Eagle Hall, St Michael stomping ground by producing an 84-page manifesto that offered Barbadians tax relief, and more disposable income, as well as protection of the elderly and the country’s law enforcement officers.
The proposed tax relief is expected to cost just under $80 million in the first 12 months if the Bees return to Government next week.
A large crowd of mostly BLP faithful heard that an Owen Arthur-led administration would reduce the value added tax from 17.5 per cent back down to 15 per cent, as well as further reduce the tax on electricity bills, local food, hotel food and hotel accommodation.
