The last buzz
bees gather to hear final message before election day
“Feels like the night before Christmas”.
And with those comments by one supporter to describe the party atmosphere of the Barbados Labour Party’s mass rally in Bay Street, St. Michael, the party launched into its business, interspersed with entertainment.
An ocean of red filled Bay Street, spilling into the streets from the adjoining esplanade as the faithful came to hear the last message from their favourite politicians and certainly party leader Owen Arthur, who was expected to address later tonight.
It would be the last chance most have to wear their bright red shirts which declared for the past three weeks — “Things dread, we voting red”, because when polls open tomorrow, neutral tones must be the order of the day, particularly around the dozens of polling stations.
Only time will tell if the campaign has done enough to clinch the government away from the Democratic Labour Party after tomorrow’s count. (LB)
