Bees draw the line
NOT EVEN THE RAIN could stop the combative Barbados Labour Party (BLP) as it launched its first mass meeting for the year with a withering attack on Government last night.
A major target of the meeting was embattled Speaker of the House of Assembly Michael Carrington, in whose constituency it was held, but speaker after speaker attacked the ruling Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) record on housing, tourism, education, labour, employment and trade unionism.
Despite the rain, Barbadians turned out in large numbers for the meeting off President Kennedy Drive in St Michael, many armed with chairs and umbrellas for what looked more like the beginning of an election campaign.
The theme of the meeting was We Draw The Line – Country Comes Before Party as the BLP called for Barbadians to put aside political differences in dealing with the problem enveloping the Speaker, a lawyer who was recently ordered by the High Court to return nearly a quarter of a million dollars withheld from a client in a private matter.
