National Hero and “Father of Independence”, the Right Excellent Errol Barrow is probably turning in his grave at the current state of the island, said Democratic Labour Party (DLP) general secretary Guyson Mayers, who charged that under Prime Minister Mia Mottley’s watch since May 2018, Barbados has been hit by the emergence of an “industry of begging”.
“All of Barbados is challenged at this time, not only the DLP. People have to find ways to cut and contrive. I am saddened to say that I have seen an emergence of begging in Barbados that I have never seen before. We have an industry of begging in Barbados. That is a situation that Barbadians have never been proud of,” Mayers told a large crowd in attendance at the opening ceremony of the party’s 64th annual general conference on Friday night.
“Errol Barrow must be turning in his grave when he looks on what is happening in Barbados, when somebody who used to call him ‘Uncle Errol’ could be inflicting this kind of pain on Barbadians,” he added. (SDB Media)
