Hoyte blasts BLP and DLP
BOTH OF BARBADOS’ major political parties were slammed for contributing to a bloated public service and not having the courage, when they had the opportunity, to take the unpopular but appropriate decisions to fix it, says Editor Emeritus of The NATION, Harold Hoyte.
And he lamented that given the obstacles to decisive political action from both the Government and Opposition, Barbados’ future looks bleak.
Hoyte made the charges last night as he addressed the third People’s Assembly meeting organized by the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) at St Leonard’s Boys’ Secondary School, Richmond Gap, St Michael.
The eminent journalist said in order for Barbadians to come to grips with “the unrecognizable reality of Barbados today, we must first acknowledge that . . . our politics has been and continues to be a major contributor to our dilemma”.
