The Barbados Labour Party (BLP) says the recent CADRES/NATION poll which gives it an upper hand in the next general election is backed up by growing support and a recent surge in party membership. And chairman Dr Jerome Walcott has sent a warning to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and the now awakened sleeping giant of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) that the BLP is “wide awake” and ready for battle. Walcott disclosed yesterday that there had been increased interest in the Opposition’s message and alternative policies, with more than 2 000 members joining the ranks of the BLP in the last four years. “Not even during our successive tenure between 1994 and 2008 have so many Barbadians joined us in our mission to change Barbados for the better,” he said at a Press conference to announce plans for the party’s 74th annual conference, with Tyrone Lovell, chairman of the conference arrangements committee, adding that the majority of those new members were young people.
