The ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) today announced eight months of activities in celebration of its 60th anniversary.

General secretary George Pilgrim told a media conference that the celebrations will begin in April and end in November.

The announcement was timed to coincide with the DLP’s observance of the second year of it’s second consecutive term in office.

“Two years ago on this day we were all busy running around taking voters to the polls, two years later

we are . . . announcing plans for our anniversary celebrations,” noted Pilgrim at Almond Caterers in Christ Church, where representatives of the party’s 30 constituency branches were meeting to plan the celebrations.

One of the highlight of the celebrations themed Celebrate 60 – It’s all about members, will be President Freundel Stuart’s presentation of 60 awards to longstanding party members.

“It’s important to celebrate and acknowledge how we got here . . . through the support of our loyal members,” Pilgrim added.

      Well done? He praising himself for not doing anything. HeKnows stated he is not moving, don’t want no opportunistic noises in his head and wanna is sanctimonious hypocrites. I seriously think he’s suffering from amnesia , he kept none of his promises after being elected, he ain’t saying nothing, he’s definitely clueless, a complete solid waste of time and he is the worst prime minister Bim ever had.

    Barbados has many wealthy visitors and ‘locals’ – probably more so than the likes of Greece and the rest of the Caribbean so its situation is not comparable. In addition Barbados has a disproportionate amount of high end hotels and eateries for its size – where is the money going?

    Yes, there was a global recession but most countries have bounced back – where is the money from high end tourism going? What impact has there been from the recent ‘municipal waste tax’?

    Given the state of Barbados, rubbish everywhere; rampant Chick V; rats and cockroaches all over the place; crime increasing; high levels of unemployment; the state of it’s one tertiary hospital and list goes on – what is there to celebrate?

    This government are not in touch with the mood of the electorate and almost appear to despise and dismiss them. The celebration money would be better spent elsewhere, in my view.

    I regularly return to Barbados, the country of my birth and the place I love most in the world. It breaks my heart each time I return home to see yet more evidence of decline. Rather than party the DLP should hang their heads in shame.
    Shame on you DLP!
