STORIES OF DOOM AND GLOOM were heard last night at a People’s Forum during which Opposition Leader Mia Mottley lambasted Prime Minister Freundel Stuart for his “inertia”.
Mottley said she became emotional when she heard of the heartbreaking hardships facing Rodney Grant of Pinelands Creative Workshop and entrepreneurs Peter “Prophet”?Grant and “Uncle” Eddie?Warner.
Both Peter Grant, who operates in Swan Street, and Warner, who has had a stall in the Oistins Bay Garden for nearly 20 years, said they were struggling more now to meet their financial obligations.
Grant, who made a call for the vendors to have a place in the Bridgetown Development Plan, said he was now behind in his mortgage payments and urged Government to inject some capital into the economy.
