“WE HAVE been infested by political ticks sucking the lifeblood out of our people.”

That was how Opposition Leader Mia Mottley yesterday described how Barbados was being governed, when she delivered a two-hour-long address at the Barbados Labour Party’s 76th annual conference.

Speaking to a packed audience at the St Leonard’s Boys’ School, Mottley continued to paint a picture of doom and gloom, saying that all of what Barbados stood for was quickly being eroded.

Dressed in her party’s colours, Mottley touched on almost every issue that has faced the country, including the fiscal deficit, the laying off of thousands of public servants, tuition fees at the University of the West Indies, the health-care system, energy, the outbreak of chikungunya and the location of the infectious diseases isolation centre at the old Enmore Clinic.
