Bring your answers, Mottley
RECENT STATEMENTS by Opposition Leader Mia Mottley on the state of the economy indicate that she is very concerned about the performance of the economy for the first six months of the year and about Government’s failure to produce any plan to indicate that they have given thought as to how we should move forward.
She has the right to be concerned, and as Barbadians we should all be concerned about the economy because it affects all of us.
However, I have always believed that if you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem.
I therefore urge the Opposition Leader to bring any solutions that she and her team have to the table, in the interest of the country as a whole.
I believe the time has come for us to stop relying solely on Government to provide all the solutions to the country’s problems and to put our collective wisdom together (Government, Opposition, economists, business leaders and church leaders) to come up with plans to help Barbados negotiate this global financial crisis successfully and to take the country into the future.
Just in case I am accused of being partial to the Democratic Labour party. let me state for the record that I pledge allegiance to neither party.
I pledge my allegiance to my country Barbados and I am therefore committed to supporting and working with whichever party has the true interests of the country at heart.
