DLP to step up its online campaign in response to BLP, says Pilgrim

The ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) is giving itself a pat on the back following last weekend’s mid-year conference at which Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and members of his Cabinet sought to present the ‘facts’ about Government’s performance over the past nine years.

“The point must be made that the party is busy doing the research to determine the date and time such an event occurred under the last administration where ‘live’ unedited reports were delivered by Cabinet
members,” said DLP General Secretary George Pilgrim in a press statement issued Monday following Saturday’s event held at Queen’s College.

“This party has placed on record a live report to the people of Barbados and ensured that all presentations were uploaded for further dissemination,” he added.

At the same time, Pilgrim accused the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) of waging a campaign of “fear and corrosion” and of using “paid operatives” to peddle “mistruths” about the country by way of social media.

“The wedge of disunity that has become the political tool of the Opposition has reached an all point low in recent past. Barbadians should take note that despite [having] the unemployment figure below double digit in the recent past, the Barbados Labour Party released an unemployment figure online that the Government had sent home 33,500 people over their period in office,” Pilgrim said, while suggesting that “this kind of distortion has become the norm for the Opposition”.

He also warned that the DLP was not about to lie down and play dead.

“Barbadians can be rest assured that this party will not be idle as the paid mischief makers in Opposition earn a salary as they unmake the profile of Barbados.

“The Democratic Labour Party will soon launch phase two of its movement to sensitize Barbadians to the facts of the nation’s progress over the last nine years.

“The massive distortion online has the attention of the Democratic Labour Party’s Councils and we shall not let it gain currency. The idea of berating our country and laying claim to love of Barbados is a political paradox. The party very soon will communicate to Barbados on our FACT movement,” he added.

    The DLP is like a man that a lover has rejected but cannot come to terms with the fact that she done wid he. George, get over it. We done wid DEM. King Saul had the same problem when God rejected him & chose David instead. His life ended in ruins just like the predictable end of the DLP in its last year in office. There will be no respite, you’ll be hounded out of office. A fitting end to your destruction of Barbados’ economy & society.

    @Georgie, I know for sure you were not lying down when you were telling your lies especially about the unemployment figures, how is it that your figures could be in single digits? before the layoffs the figures were not in single digits and since all those workers were sent home you`re saying that all of them found employment? After 9 years you`ll going talk now, tell the people how you get the country in the hole that the MOF spoke a bout a few days ago.

    Nation’s progress over the last nine years – know that will make interesting reading, after 18 downgrades, doubling of the national debt, foreign reserves at a low level in the middle of a “bumper tourist season”, transport, water & sewerage in a mess, QEH, etc. I can hardly wait to hear their progress………

    Spin this George, we dont want no more downgrades, no more lies about the economy, no more lies about foreign reserves, no more lies about unemployment figures, no more lies about lending to small business, no more lies from the DLP. just call the election and witness how much Barbados does not want wanna.

    “The Democratic Labour Party will soon launch phase two of its movement to sensitize Barbadians to the facts of the nation’s progress over the last nine years.” Really??????? I am baffled by what progress the country made under this administration!!! Stand-up Comedians!!

      This DLP administration has been a total disaster and history will not be kind to them.

    Barbados Today got it wrong and long again. The article should correctly read……. The incompetent ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) is giving itself a hard slap on its head which the headless Fruendel Stuart and his divided disgruntled cabinet sought to present the true facts of his government’ NON- Performance over the past nine long wasteful years. That would have been a better report on truth well told.

    The Barbados Labour Party wont know what hit them.

    Plus there is the question of Morals and Ethics within the the Barbados Labour Party which will be brought to fore pretty soon.

    The Barbados Labour Party is full of people who live in glass houses. When the rocks start pelting a lot of glass will be shattered.

    In politics the best way to fight fire is with fire.
