DLP ‘mired in inertia’
OPPOSITION LEADER OWEN ARTHUR says Government now found itself in a position where it could not implement any of the main economic proposals in its Manifesto, Medium Term Fiscal Strategy or 2008 Budget.
Addressing supporters on the final day of the Barbados Labour Party’s [BLP] 72nd annual conference at Deighton Griffith Secondary School today painted a picture of the Democratic Labour Party [DLP] Government as one mired in inertia.
“The inertia in the implementation of plans and programmes that were intended to support the development and growth of the economy, especially, included most of the measures contained in David Thompson’s 2008 Budget,” he said.
Arthur went through a series of promised initiatives which he deemed that “nothing had been done” and raised a similar chant from the crowd as he read the list of DLP proposals. (WG)
