The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) has slammed the Mia Amor Mottley Administration for painting an image on the international stage that all was well at home, while ordinary Barbadians suffer.
DLP president Verla De Peiza, speaking yesterday at a press conference at Charlton Chambers, Whitepark Road, St Michael, gave the Government a failing grade, adding it was not meeting the social needs of Barbadians.
“The people of Barbados have to be at the core of whatever policies are being made,” she said. “You cannot have policies that take the country somewhere internationally but leave your people behind. It is a recipe for anarchy and dissension.
“When you have conversations overseas about climate change and how it will impact people and environmental policy, but at home you are pumping sewage into the sea, garbage is piling up everywhere, with rodents and flies on the increase, and diseases in the offing, how can you give anything other than a failing grade?” she asked.
