Opposition MP Mia Mottley says they are still waiting for The Budget to be delivered.
Mottley, in delivering The Reply to the Budget this evening in Parliament, said "we waited and waited" but got nothing in what she described as the longest Budget speech that she has recalled.
“This is a Budget we will address with sober optimism because Barbadians deserve no less than that," she said.
Mottley said she sometimes feels that this Government lives in a dream and refuses to connect with the average Barbadian.
The MP says she will, on behalf of the BLP, address this country’s circumstances through analysis and by answering the following questions. “Where we are; where and why are we still here; where should we be and how should we get there.”
