Economic strangulation, bondage and bad governance.

All of this has been a feature of the Democratic Labour Party’s term in office.

So said Barbados Labour Party candidate Desmond Sands, who is seeking to emulate his late father Duncan Carter and represent Christ Church East Central in the House of Assembly.

He was speaking tonight during a BLP’s rally at Haggatt Hall, St. Michael.

“Some of you are here tonight because you can’t endure the economic strangulation and bondage of the Freundel Stuart Administration. You can’t take no more of the lack good of governance,” the attorney-at-law told the large audience.

“But there is hope. We (the BLP) will have our chance… We have had enough of them.

“When the time comes you all must go out in your hundreds, in your thousands and you will use as your instrument, not a weapon, but the instrument of the vote,” he added.

He also said Christ Church East Central would say goodbye to DLP at a time when Barbadians continue to struggle to pay their light and water bills.

“You will get your chance and when you get this chance on the 21 (of February) you will vote for the Barbados Labour Party,” Sands added, noted he was confident about winning the seat represented for the last two terms by Minister of Education Ronald Jones.

Christ Church West Central Margo Durant Callender shared these sentiments, saying: “The time for action is now! Now is the time to rescue this country from Freundel and the eager 11.”

The grandmother of two said she was concerned about the future of young people, the ones who “suffer most when we are unable to provide for our families”.

“All over Barbados today families are feeling hopeless, all over this country we are feeling that there is no hope, but I am here tonight to tell you don’t despair, keep hope alive, we in the Barbados Labour Party will do everything in our power to restore that hope,” she stated.

“Your children deserve that hope, we all deserve that hope so you go out there in your numbers on February 21 and vote. Vote for your children’s future, vote for the Barbados Labour Party.” (SC)
