Stop playing footsie!

Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley is telling the Freundel Stuart-administration to “stop playing footsie” with the lives of Barbadians.

Mottley insists that Government is engaging in a public relations stunt as retrenchment talks continue between ministers and trade union officials, and she is having none of it.

“A meeting that should have lasted all of 15 minutes is now going into its third day, as they build the hopes of workers for this great joint announcement that a caring government and an eagle-eyed trade union movement will make on or about Tuesday, a few hours before the dawn of the 15. This is public relations madness,” the opposition leader said in a media statement.

Both sides were on a collision course, political operatives have sought to stave this off by suggesting they meet and each shave a little something off. Now, we are told the Prime Minister will be brought in.”

Mottley was speaking ahead of the first People’s Assembly put on by the opposition Barbados Labour Party last night at the St James Secondary School.
