2018 BLP Manifesto Scorecard

The Barbados Labour Party (BLP) launched the obligatory manifesto to support its 2018 general election campaign. There has been a lot of public commentary about the importance of a manifesto and the degree citizenry is equipped to hold political parties to account when it takes office based on promises contained therein.

The blogmaster proposes on the 30 November 2018 the BU family performs an appraisal of the BLP performance based on its six month plan. The government was elected to serve us, it is incumbent more Barbadians become engaged in our system of governance.

A link to the BLP Manifesto is provided to access greater detail about the issues listed in the table below. This post will be added to BU menu and from time to time accessed to support blogging.

    There is no opposition, the citizens, the majority population who gave the government it’s mandate, must now become more involved, for their own beneft.

  • I have no problem with this, David.

    To whom much is given, much is required.

    When they read what is happening on BU, it would keep them on their toes so that their stated goals would be achieved.

    Nice. This matrix is nice.

    An online collaborative GANNT app might be of additional use to detail what steps she takes in the interim

    So as opposed to macro goals we get to see her interim steps which she announced

    I have sent a brief of the first tier of the platform to you under confidential cover

    Ah guess a lot of hopes, dreams and plans got dashed when the electorate turned militant and revolted en masse…upsetting the old con game.

    Am sure Mia knows who is what she better had, the theatre is priceless, it gives many of us less postimg to do in the months ahead, it narrows the focus.

    That was the best thing that could ever had happened for the people and island at this stage…the people should congratulate themselves.

    Glad to see one newspaper taking a stance on this, social media has been pounding this topic of FOIA for a long time, Mia should act on that promise as soon as she can….

    “It was encouraging to say the least, to hear Prime Minister Mia Mottley’s open promise to reporters immediately following her swearing in last Friday that as soon as new integrity legislation is fully enacted, the next item on the legislative agenda of her new Government will be passage of the long awaited Freedom of Information Act (FIA).”

  • It is about being fair, based on historical, politicians start with the most honorable of intentions than along the way are sidetracked. Looking forward to a good six month review.
