Sorry Dems


HOW MANY MORE TIMES must the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) apologise to Barbados, some party members asked yesterday.

And in the case of former attorney general Adriel Brathwaite, he wants to know what areas the party should be saying sorry about.

The contentious issue was raised yesterday on Voice of Barbados’ Sunday Brass Tacks call-in programme on when moderator and political analyst Peter Wickham hosted a four-member panel from the DLP. Along with Brathwaite were former St Andrew candidate Irene Sandiford-Garner, and potential candidates Ryan Walters (St Michael North West) and Simon Alleyne (St Philip North). They also spoke about the reasons for the party’s 30-0 wipeout in the May 2018 poll after ten years in office and about rebuilding and issues affecting the country.

Former minister of social care Steve Blackett and former minister of foreign affairs Maxine McClean joined the discussion by phone.

While his colleagues said sorry, Brathwaite was firm that the cry for an apology was part of a narrative coming from the ruling Barbados Labour Party (BLP) and some people had been caught up in “the lie”. (AC)
