The DLP had a meeting in St. Michael for five constituencies and it is reported that only 130 persons attended total for all five constituencies. Now compare that to the BLP Dwight Sutherland’s St. George South Branch meeting held on Sunday the 25th March at St.Luke’s Brighton Skills Training Centre which featured Opposition Deputy Leader Dale Marshall and former political leader Mia Mottley where over 100 persons attended.
What is happening in St. George South is beginning to happen all over Barbados as the election grows near, finally the people of St. George South will get the kind of representation they deserve in these challenging times from its BLP candidate Dwight Sutherland. Dr. Suckoo has “not” served the people of St. George South well, and she has done a “poor” job as Minister of Labour. The labour force in Barbados and the people of St. George South want more that seeing their representative “cheesing in the newspaper every day” saying and doing absolutely nothing tangible for her constituency in St.George South, or bajan people.
Bajans are starting to see through the smoke screen of poor governmental leadership and under performance coming from the current DLP administration and does like Dr. Suckoo. To make matters worse our nation is suffering from a “PM LEADERSHIP CRISIS” which no one is talking about but many Bajans know it, including some DLP supporters. I call him the “Accidental PM”, which may be a good title for a book or movie after he is out of office, but in “these times” with “these challenges” PM Stuart is not the “one” to lead Barbados.
Fortunately, Bajans are beginning to understand that the current DLP has “NO” socio-economic strategic vision for Barbados, NONE AT ALL. The DLP slogan of “they are trying to build a society” in the midst of an economic crisis is simply “pure nonsense”, and you don’t need to be an economist to know that (mark my words that slogan is going to come back to bit the DLP). The best evidence to date of this lack of a strategic vision is the 2012-2013 Barbados Budget Estimates. The DLP budget shows NO evidence of the kind of comprehensive fiscal vision needed to slow our growing national fiscal deficit, it does nothing to get government expenditures under control, and adversary impacts economic growth.
“MAN CALL THE ELECTION, YA KILLING WE”
