Dems: We’re a government in waiting


Social Share

Democratic Labour Party (DLP) members and supporters went down memory lane yesterday.

The party remembered its founder, the island’s first Prime Minister, Errol Walton Barrow on his birthday with a special tour that started at DLP headquarters at George Street, St Michael, and ended in St Lucy, the birth parish of the National Hero.

Along the way, stops were made at Barrow’s bust at Independence Square, the old National Insurance Scheme building on Fairchild Street which will soon be demolished to make way for a national park, and the rural parish of St John, which Barrow represented with distinction from 1958 until he died in 1987. Stops were also made at Codrington College, Gall Hill and Wilson Hill Community Park.

DLP president Verla De Peiza, and third vice-president Andre Worrell said yesterday’s event could be just what was needed for the Dems to circle in the wagons in an attempt to regain the government. (BA)
