Mottley invites Bajans to march to show disgust

OPPOSITION LEADER Mia Mottley has called out Barbadians to show their disapproval of the Freundel Stuart Government by participating in a march of disgust on March 11.

At a press conference held minutes ago, Mottley said the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) could not in good conscience allow the Government to limp towards a constitutionally due finish line.

Mottley also called out Stuart for the comments he made to Democratic Labour Party faithful at an event in New York last weekend, saying he would not get involved in the impasse between embattled Governor of the Central Bank Dr Delisle Worrell and Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler.

“No way could I have imagined as callous and as indifferent a response to the state of the social and economic affairs in Barbados today,” Mottley told reporters.

She said the issue involving Worrell and Sinckler transcends consideration of jurisdictional authority.

“It goes to the heart of answering the question whether Government will be able to come up with the money to meet its end of month commitments without the Central Bank printing money and buying Government securities,” Mottley said.

She then called on Barbadians to join the BLP on a national march of disgust on March 11, aimed at showing the Government of the day they were no longer willing to accept the way the country was being managed.

“It is now time for Barbadians to be given an opportunity to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with this state of affairs in Barbados,” she told those gathered at the Opposition headquarters in the Parliament buildings.

“We call upon all civic minded Barbadians to join with us in sending a message to Freundel Stuart and his Cabinet that their style of Governance is not cute,” the BLP leader said.

Mottley noted Barbados could no longer bear the weight of indifference and of Stuart and his Cabinet for another 12 months. She added the march would be just the first salvo by the BLP to let it be known “enough is enough”. (BA
