DLP questions Opposition’s plan to march


Share post:

THE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR Party (DLP) is questioning the true motivations behind the Opposition Barbados Labour Party organising a march for March 11.

Yesterday opposition leader Mia Mottley urged Barbadians to join in a march of disgust against Government.

Among the problems she identified was Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler’s attempt to fire Central Bank Governor Dr Delisle Worrell.

During a Press conference today at the DLP’s George Street, St Michael headquarters, DLP general secretary George Pilgrim drew reference to the BLPs’ firing of former bank governor Winston Cox.

“We decided to do what they did at the Central Bank and now all of a sudden they marching. Every week a splinter group emerges from the Opposition ranks and Barbadians are supposed to believe they are ready to take up office as they continue to mix fact and fiction?

“Every ‘solution’ coming from the Opposition is in some form of disruption. From February 2013, the shock of our second term had led for fresh calls for elections and a duty from the Opposition to make Barbados ungovernable. The first thing the Opposition will do should they return to office will not be to focus on economy or foreign reserves – they want the keys to the treasury, not the economy,” Pilgrim said.

The general secretary then questioned how a party could claim to understand the struggles of a people yet could find the resources to fund the printing of thousands of T-shirts and design full colour ads. (CA)
