THE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR PARTY (DLP) yesterday accused the Opposition of paying people to march with them on Saturday.

The accusation, fiercely denied by senior member of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), Dale Marshall, was made by general secretary of the DLP, George Pilgrim.

The two, along with chairman of the newly formed United Progressive Party (UPP), Lynette Eastmond, and Grenville Phillips II, of Solutions Barbados, were taking part in Starcom Network’s Sunday Brass Tacks post-mortem on Saturday’s Step Up If Yuh Fed Up “march of disgust” and rally in The City.

“Yesterday’s march shows us how money can influence an election,” Pilgrim said. (HLE)
