Verla punches back


Share post:

PRESIDENT OF THE Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Verla De Peiza is advising Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley that rather than fire potshots at her, she should concentrate on the real gunfire that was claiming the lives of Barbadians on a monthly basis.

Speaking hours after the island recorded its 40th murder for the year on Saturday night, she also suggested to Mottley that burdening taxpayers with a monthly salary for crime consultant, former commissioner of police Darwin Dottin, was not a strategy that was showing any success.

During the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) 81st Annual Conference in Queen’s Park on Saturday, Mottley described Opposition Leader Bishop Joseph Atherley, De Peiza and Solutions Barbados’ leader Grenville Phillips as “Eenie, Meenie and Miney” who were poor alternatives to the BLP Government.

Mottley went on to refer to De Peiza as a “political watchman” who, according to her, was simply “waiting for the real batsman to come in and take over”; as well as a political water lily hopping around trying to find a home in elective politics.

De Peiza told the NATION the Prime Minister should have instead taken the time to speak to the safety of Barbadians and let them know if they would be seeing the backs of Dottin as well as Attorney General Dale Marshall.
