THE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR Party has accused the Barbados Labour Party of spreading “mistruths” about the country.

The charge came from general secretary George Pilgrim in a release issued today.

“The wedge of disunity that has become the political tool of the Opposition has reached an all point low in recent past. Barbadians should take note that despite the unemployment figure hovering below double digit in the recent past the Barbados Labour Party release an unemployment figure online that the government had sent home 33 500 people over their period in office.  

“Barbadians can be rest assured that this party will not be idle as the paid mischief makers in Opposition earn a salary as they unmake the profile of Barbados,” he said.

Pilgrim commended Prime Minister and party president Freundel Stuart on the completion of Saturday’s FACTs Mid-year Conference at Queen’s College.

The point must be made that the party is busy doing the research to determine the date and time such an event occurred under the last administration where live unedited reports were delivered by Cabinet members.

This party has placed on record a live report to the people of Barbados and ensured that all presentations were uploaded for further dissemination,” he said.

Pilgrim said the DLP would soon launch phase two of its movement to sensitise Barbadians to the “FACTs” of the nation's progress over the last nine years.

 “The massive distortion online has the attention of the Democratic Labour Party's councils and we shall not let it gain currency. The idea of berating our country and laying claim to love of Barbados is a political paradox. The party very soon will communicate to Barbados on our FACT movemen," Pilgrim added. (PR/NB)
