Lines drawn on Agard decision Day

Social Share

PERSONS PASSING BY the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) Roebuck Street headquarters may have thought it was election day.

Several members and supporters dressed mainly in red, with some bearing placards, are gathered outside anxiously awaiting the results of the outcome of the case against Dr Maria Agard.

It, however, is evident that members of the Christ Church West Constituency are not supporting Dr Agard, their parliamentary representative.

Several of them voiced their discontent with her stewardship with some even saying they want her expelled from the party this evening.

“The BLP is bigger than Maria”, “Time go Maria”, “Mia all the way” were some of the slogans which the crowd held up in their hands and waved.

“She is bare drama,” a man from the constituency told the NATION ONLINE, stating he wanted Agard removed so the constituency could “start fresh”.

Former public relations officer of the branch Lillian Williams who held up a slogan, “Bye-George not this time!”, was emphatic she would not be supporting Agard.

While several are patiently awaiting the outcome of this meeting, it is clear that there are deep divisions within the party.

Those dressed in red want Agard expelled, those dressed in white are supporting Party Leader Mia Mottley, and the few dressed in black are supporting Agard. (MB)
