The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) has come to share licks

“All gloves are off! There is too much at stake for this country today and for the foreseeable future, for us to sit back, be calm and collected. We have to get up and let our voices be heard over the next two weeks in particular, put some licks in the Barbados Labour Party, but I don’t mean physically, even though some may want beating.”

This was declared last night, a couple hours ago by the Industry and International Business Minister, Donville Inniss at Carlisle Bay in St. Michael in front of the Prime Minister’s offices.

With some people commenting about the ruling Party acting as though they are not gunning to retake the government, he challenged his colleagues saying, “We have to really and truly behave as though we have the best to offer this country.”

And he threw his support behind his colleagues adding, “I am satisfied that this Democratic Labour Party team has the best to offer Barbados in the foreseeable future.”

He said that the DLP is a cut above the rest.

“When you match us man for man, woman for woman, we have the best; from Kellie in the North to Michael Lashley in the South, all over we have the best team.

“We are running not just on the better policies for the country going forward, but also on a good track record.”

Inniss charged the BLP for painting Barbados with a negative brush, “You would think that Barbados is going to hell in a basket and it has not done that. They like to continue to talk about how bad the economy is, nothing functions in this country according to them. When I look around this Barbados that I was born in…I see an island that I am still extremely proud of.”

Asserting that the team wishes to take “all the red shirts off the streets”, he said that the DLP has done "a lot in the last 10 years" to deserve another term.

Inniss asserted that Bajans should not be fooled. He said, “We have a lot of info to defend this party, to defend this government.” He said that without fear they can lock horns with anyone. “Don’t believe their propaganda and negativity!”

As it relates to their track record he pinpointed examples from the Ministry of Health including the standby generator at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) and helping Barbados to have “the best ophthalmology department”.
