Dems ‘have done good’


Share post:

PRIME MINISTER Freundel Stuart says he has taken to heart an Anglican leader’s warning about the dangers an exclusive and self-serving government can cause.

However, Stuart told Canon Wayne Isaacs of St Paul’s Anglican Church that while the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) had not been perfect, “we’ve done good for Barbados” and there was nothing about which it should be ashamed.

Describing’s Isaac’s comments during a service yesterday that ran for almost three hours as “both timely and appropriate”, Stuart said his party had tried to be as inclusive as possible in a bid to deliver “good and transparent governance”.

Rather than being self-serving, DLP leaders had been constantly reminded by the party’s elders that they were not in politics to pursue personal gains but to perform a solemn civic duty, Stuart told the congregation at St Paul’s, which included members of his Cabinet, diplomats, former Prime Minister Sir Lloyd Sandiford and former Deputy Prime Minister Sir Philip Greaves.
