That’s how the leader of the Barbados Labour Party’ campaign team feels about the party’s chances in Thursday’s general election.

Campaign Manager, Jimmy Serrao, speaking in the wake of a second CADRES poll in two weeks showing the BLP was favoured to win the poll, today urged all involved in the organisation’s campaign not to be complacent.

In an electronic memo he said: “The BLP remains cautiously optimistic about Thursday’s result, however, we caution all of our supporters not to rest on our laurels.

“The only poll that matters is on Election Day. If we do not go out to vote in our numbers, we will not win. Sunday’s poll was a wake-up call that we must take no seat or no vote for granted.

“Over the next 72 hours much work will need to be done to ensure that every BLP supporter makes it to the polls and votes. We need your vote. We need your support. And, most importantly, we need you to take action.

“There is so much that needs to be done over the next 72 hours. If you want to ensure a victory for the ‘Team for a Better Tomorrow’, I need you to sign up to volunteer now and help us with the final push for victory! Now is the time. Volunteer,” he said.

He spoke in the context of what he said was the latest CADRES survey showing “Barbados Labour Party up eight per cent with an anticipated swing of seven per cent to the BLP”.

“It further shows Owen Arthur edging Freundel Stuart 37 per cent to 32 per cent – just outside the margin of error for the poll. It predicts a 20-10 BLP win,” he noted. (SC)

    I am afraid for the future of Barbadians if the BLP get into power again. Their policies will destroy Barbados.
    What has the private investors who are funding the BLP demanded and expects in return.
    What is the true price Barbadians will be forced to pay, when those investors demand their pound of flesh?
    A vote for the BLP means democracy out of the door; Barbadians marginalized in their own country, Bajans will no longer be the majority and the eventual return of slavery, and do not for one minute believe that it cannot happen in this day and age.
    Do not let the BEES sell off the rest of Barbados, when there is nothing left to sell, they will come for you and your children, VOTE Bees OUT!
    A vote for DEMS is a vote for YOU, your CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, and for ALL BARBADIANS.
