Pilgrim predicts BLP leadership challenge
A PREDICTION HAS been made that it is going to be a “red October” in the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) camp.
General secretary of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) George Pilgrim is predicting that a number of “leaders” will emerge from the BLP annual conference this weekend.
He was speaking to the media hours before the BLP votes for the candidate to run in St Michael North West and complete its slate of 30 candidates for the next General Election.
“In four days at Lester Vaughan [Secondary School] a red October will take place, where you will see at least three leaders emerging for the Barbados Labour Party conference. That party is in crisis with leadership; it has not been resolved since the last Prime Minister and leader Owen Arthur,” Pilgrim said.
He added: “The truth will come out after October. Stay tuned.” (YB)
