Sydney decides to leave DLP
ONE long-standing member of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) has announced he is severing his membership on the weekend the party is holding its annual conference.
Sydney Burnett-Alleyne called the WEEKEND NATION yesterday to say he is fed up and he no longer wants to be recognized as a life member of the DLP.
Burnett-Alleyne, a retired arms merchant who has been in exile in Britain for more than 30 years, says the DLP has failed to implement the Constitution of November 30, 1966.
He argues the tens of thousands of Barbadians who live overseas have been patiently awaiting “political equality in the society to which we belong” referring to the fact that they do not have the right to vote in Barbados. (ES)
