The Barbados Labour Party (BLP) today rallied its troops to “answer the call” by Barbadians for leadership, good governance and programmes to put people back to work.
Gathering in large numbers at the Queen’s Park Steel Shed on the second day of their 74th annual conference which climaxes tomorrow, party faithful were told by an upbeat chairman Dr Jerome Walcott that they were on the path to victory and change in Barbados.
Noting that the attendance at nominations had seemed more like public meetings and had been “attracting the sort of crowds and interest never before seen outside of an election”, Walcott urged his comrades to answer the people’s call.
“Let us answer the call of history, to once again provide leadership, good governance and programmes to put Barbadians back to work, to put money back in their pockets, to put back our country in its rightful place far removed from junk status. And let us again make it possible for Barbadians to dream, aspire and achieve beyond the circumstances in which they were born. We are ready, united and strong!” he said to rousing applause from members who created a sea of red in their t-shirts.
