Sea of red at Bath


Share post:

BARBADOS LABOUR PARTY (BLP) and its supporters are still on a high from their resounding victory at the May 24 General Election.

From around 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., hundreds of supporters, most of them clad in red, blanketed Bath Beach, St John, for a celebratory picnic to rub shoulders with their Members of Parliament, ministers, senators and each other.

 Prime Minister Mia Mottley arrived around 3 p.m. to much fanfare, and that was the case for most of the Government members.

During the afternoon, Jamaican dance hall artiste Beenie Man made an appearance and spoke highly of Mottley in her role of Prime Minister.

“It’s always a stronger meditation and dedication to the people to know that the Prime Minister is down-to-earth, and she is one of the people you can hail. It’s always great to know that,” the artiste said.

“Without a woman we wouldn’t be here you know.
So I support women in power, women in ministry; because I am not threatened by a woman’s independence and I love when a woman is strong,” he added.

Mottley, in a brief address, urged the public to remain disciplined and remember the country needed to work together.

“In the same way you have to exercise discipline in what you eat or how you exercise . . . we as a country are going to have to exercise discipline together.

“And as I speak to you in the next week and outline some of the things, we will hold faith with you, because my word is my bond.

“But equally, I will also ask you to recognise you have a role to play in saving this country,” she added. (AD)
