Mia: My back is broad

“My back is broad.”

That was Opposition Leader Mia Mottley’s simple response moments ago when asked about the collective tongue lashing she had received from the Democratic Labour Party’s campaign launch Sunday night.

Just after completing her nomination process at the St Matthews Primary School, the Barbados Labour Party leader said she was in no way surprised by the attack on her character by the Dems.

“I am not worried about it. I will stay focused on the job at hand. The truth is that the Democratic Labour Party has not been attracting a lot of people to their meetings and they are doing this to bring a level of excitement to their campaign. But I will not be distracted. I will stay focused for the Barbadian people,” she told reporters before leaving the school.

Mottley, who arrived with an entourage of around 100 supporters, said she had found extreme gratification over the last 48 hours, based on the traction from the party’s campaign lift-off Saturday evening at Weymouth, and another meeting held in Wildey last night. 

She said the party would reach another level when their manifesto is launched Thursday. (BA)
