"Mia Mottley is ready and able and poised to hold the post of Prime Minister."

The current leader of the opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) was today heralded for her time as Minister of Education and Attorney General by BLP stalwart Dame Billie Miller.

 

"We of the BLP are carrying her forward. She will press for progress and fairness. We must all think however of how we can contribute to the island," she said to thousands in a sea of red at the Weymouth Playing Field, St Michael.

Dame Billie bemoaned the fact that this is the first time she has "seen it so bad in Barbados," she said referring to the ongoing stink of the South coast and the transport system. "The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) has taken Barbados back 27 years. There is raw sewage and Barbados is unable to pay its debts. It's shameful! The BLP must yet come again to the rescue," she argued.

The Dame highlighted how she would love for Barbados to go forward in such a way that a US Secretary General can still marvel at how a little island can punch above its weight timelessly.

As she referenced the great tribulation and the 1930s riots, Dame Billie called on the young people to utilize the power as members of the electorate. "Voting is very free and empowering," she added.
