De Peiza: Walk with me


Share post:

Re-elected leader of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP), Verla De Peiza, is asking Barbadians to take a walk with her, as the Dems continue their rebuilding after last year May’s 30-0 General Election defeat.

“The time for action is now and we step out confident that, having regained our own footing, we are geared up and ready to do battle on behalf of the people of Barbados. We will learn the lessons of our history and apply them with renewed fervour to our plans for the future,” she said in her address at the DLP’s 64th Annual Conference at party headquarters, George Street, Belleville, St Michael yesterday.

“This country is in dire need of rescue and it is our intention to reclaim that space in the hearts and minds of Barbadians that this is the party of choice to look after their interests. We can no longer watch and wait.

“Timothy Callender long ago taught us the danger in just watching. To use his analogy, it is two minutes to two, but we will not turn our heads. Our eyes are ever on the prize but we will not just sit and watch. Come take that walk with me,” she stressed. (RA)
