Devaluation talk ‘wicked’, says Jones
WICKED WAS how Minister of Education Ronald Jones described members of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), which he charged was on a strategic mission to create uncertainty in the minds of Barbadians with repeated talk of devaluation of the Barbados dollar.
Jones’ comments came during a joint meeting of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Christ Church West and Christ Church East Central branches at the Arthur Smith Primary School on Sunday evening.
Voicing the same sentiments expressed by his political leader, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart as well as Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, Jones insisted that Barbados is not on the road to devaluation.
In fact, he responded to such chatter by levelling a biting attack on the BLP, stressing that the constant harping on devaluation talk by the Opposition served to destabilise the economy by attempting to create doubt among citizens. (SDB Media)
