Mottley laments lack of hope and leadership

The Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) is raising concern about what it described as “a lack of hope and leadership” in the country, amid a season that should be full of hope.

In fact, BLP leader Mia Mottley argued that “all around our society today we see the scars of disappointment, a lack of hope and too many signs of a people longing for relief from the harsh conditions they are forced to endure in their living circumstances”.

“This is a time when leadership is most needed in the face of uncertainty and against a backdrop of the requirement to provide hope; a time when an understanding of one’s purpose is most crucial to the effectiveness of the impact to be made in the society,” she said in her Easter message today.

Mottley therefore called on those who have been entrusted to govern to emulate some of the examples of the Easter story.

“. . . To exemplify the commitment of Jesus, who acted not in his own interest but in the interest of others; to bring hope to situations that appear otherwise dire,” she said.

“We are further encouraged at this time, when leadership is endangered, to emulate the life of Christ – to be humble and sincere in representing the interest of our people.”

In the meantime, Mottley promised that the BLP would continue to stand at the frontline for citizens, “to labour for a better life for our people”.

    More alarm and despondency from the Barbados Labour Party. They are good for nothing else. They want people to believe that if they vote them in before 2018 all the “ills” they keep listing will automatically disappear.

    Their Lust for power is really overwhelming. “Govt. at any cost” is their motto.

    They dont fool me, the Barbados Labour Party is chuck full of degenerates. They are the reason for a lot of the problems in Barbados.

    Ms Mottley, in whose interest did you act when you organized the march against the solid waste tax?How humble are you when you make it known at every turn that you want to be the next Prime Minister? I always thought that it was the person who has the support of the majority of his or her colleagues?

    She should lament the disunity within the BLP that disqualifies them in the public’s mind as a plausible Government alternative….ask herself if that disunity was really worth it?
