THE TIMING may not be perfect, but the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) says it’s ready to debate a motion of no confidence against Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler if forced to do so tomorrow.
This was one of the messages the BLP delivered at a four-hour mass rally in Queen’s Park, where the party said it had collected more than 5 000 signatures for a petition seeking Sinckler’s removal.
Several hundred people, some in the red party T-shirts and others in formal church wear, turned up to hear platform speakers such as former Prime Minister Owen Arthur and adviser on financial matters Clyde Mascoll blast Sinckler’s economic policies and to join in the battle cry: “Enough is enough!”
Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley said the party would have preferred parliamentarians and other Barbadians to be given a chance to examine the formal charges against Sinckler contained in the resolution before the debate got under way in the House of Assembly.
