Freundel: Bajans worse off
Former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart says Barbadians were “betrayed” by the Mia Mottley administration after it took office in 2018.
In his first appearance on a Democratic Labour Party platform since the January 19 General Election was announced, Stuart finally broke his silence Monday night, telling constituents of St Michael South, whom he represented for ten years: “I am here tonight to tell you that three and one-half years later, Barbados is worse off than it was in 2018.
“I am also here to tell you that the fundamental values to which you have subscribed in Barbados since Independence 55 years ago have been betrayed by this administration. If you are interested in your own welfare, in your children’s welfare and in the welfare of those yet unborn, you have no choice but to go to the polls on the 19th of this month and hound this administration out of office,” he added.
Speaking in support of his successor, St Michael South DLP candidate Kevin Miller, at a spot meeting at Reece Land, Brittons Hill, the former DLP leader said: “This is the first opportunity that I am having to thank all of you here in St Michael South for the warmth of your hospitality and the charm of your manner for the three terms I was down here . . . .
