Looking to Barrow


Share post:

PRIME MINISTER FREUNDEL STUART says he will be guided by founder leader Errol Barrow’s principles and lead the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) to its third straight general election victory.

Stuart, who is leading Barbados through two terms of economic difficulty, said even though Barrow died 30 years ago, for the DLP he still lived because the things he stood for were deeply rooted in the hearts and minds of party faithful. And so when they felt challenged by the pressure of events, they looked to Barrow’s examples.

Speaking to his Cabinet colleagues and party members attending the annual Errol Barrow Memorial church service at the Crab Hill New Testament Church of God in St Lucy yesterday, Stuart said to loud applause: “Do not get distracted by the incoherent noises you hear from time to time. Those issues are going to be settled on a date that I will determine and we will root out adversaries and put them to flight.”

He used the example of a race horse preparing for competition and looking very fast while training by itself. However, he said on race day when the animal came face to face with real competition, it was realised that the horse was nothing at all. (LK)
