‘Confidence in Dems gone’
Barbadians have not only lost confidence in Government politicians but also in Governor of the Central Bank, Dr DeLisle Worrell.
That’s the opinion of the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) Leader Mia Mottley, who said people have become more distrustful since Prime Minister Freundel Stuart’s announcement last Thursday that based on the advice of Worrell, Government must cut $400 million in budgetary spending to address the current deficit in the economy.
“Do you have the confidence that the same men that put us into this can lead us out of it?” She asked a gathering of over 150 supporters at a BLP St George South constituency branch meeting yesterday evening. “If you don’t, then you have a duty to stand up and speak out.”
She contended that properly implementing a $400 million cut within the remaining months of the current financial year ending in March 2014 was unworkable. (GA)
