A “SWEET DRINKS BUDGET”, coupled with ongoing suspicious actions involving the Dems, is making Barbadians poorer and adding to the national list of chronic non-communicable diseases (CNCDs).

This is the view of Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate Ian Gooding-Edghill, who opened last night’s BLP meeting under the theme of The Sellout Exposed just outside the home of two former leaders of this country, National Hero Sir Grantley Adams and his son Tom Adams.

Edghill, in a strongly worded presentation connoting unfairness, pointed out that since 2008 when the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) entered office, Barbados had witnessed such an unprecedented escalation in the “instances of highly suspicious actions involving Dems, that we now have to add to the national list of CNCDs such as diabetes and cancer, a new one of . . . sellouts”.
