Pilgrim: It was a rent a crowd

The ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) is charging that Barbadians were paid to participate in yesterday’s national March of Disgust organized by the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP).

Speaking on a local radio programme this morning, DLP General Secretary George Pilgrim charged that yesterday’s march, which is said to have attracted about 10,000 people, really was a reflection of how money can influence an election.

“Based on my knowledge, people were offered money to come and march,” Pilgrim said on Starcom Network’s Down to Brass Tacks programme.

“The fact that people were willing to turn up to the march and receive a gratuity for just turning up speaks [volumes]  of what Barbadians should fear going into the next election,” he said.

A section of the massive crowd which attended yesterday’s march.

Pilgrim further claimed that the BLP has opened “a call centre” with paid staff to mobilize people for the march.

“The amount of people that were called yesterday for the march, there had to be a call centre in place. That is one thing I want to thank and congratulate the party on, it’s assisting Barbados in reducing the unemployment figure.

“It is clear to me that the amount of people that were employed over the last five days that they have made a significant contribution to that [reducing the unemployment figure],” he stressed.

Pressed to substantiate the claim, Pilgrim responded: “The supermarkets were bursting on Friday.”

Here, BLP candidate for St Michael South Kirk Humphrey holds a placard reflecting his disgust with the Freundel Stuart led administration.

BLP representative Dale Marshall, who was also a guest on the programme, rubbished the claim. He explained that the party got volunteers from every single constituency to man telephones at its headquarters.

“I know because some of my young people went down to party headquarters and manned telephones. They do it during the general elections, they are not paid a cent. Not a person was paid for this so-called call centre,” Marshall insisted.

Many vented their frustration with the Government.

Pilgrim also alleged that Barbados was being sold out by the Opposition BLP, while warning that as far as the ruling DLP was concerned “Barbados is not on the auction bloc”.

He said: “If Barbadians took note of what has been occurring in Barbados they have to ask themselves, . . . ‘who ultimately stands to benefit if Barbados is auctioned . . . by the Opposition?”

“They cannot deny that they are telling investors not to invest in Barbados,” Pilgrim said.

However, Marshall took issue with the suggestion, saying for the DLP to even allege that yesterday’s mobilization had cost “vast sums of money that the BLP could only get it off the ground if they sold out to the highest bidder is rubbish.

The St Joseph Member of Parliament pointed out that political parties in Barbados get a small subvention from Government.

Therefore he said: “We all have to go out there and approach our base. There are old ladies who contribute $10, there are some individuals who will contribute more and . . . the reality is that until we reach the stage where political parties in Barbados are funded by the state we have to go out there and we have to get contributions,” Marshall said.

Meanwhile, the Leader of the newly-formed United Progressive Party Lynette Eastmond said there was need for a serious discussion about election campaign funding.

“I don’t know that there are any rules in place with respect to maybe a rent a crowd, but there certainly are laws in place with respect to the bribing of electors, and individuals who bribe electors and those who receive those bribes are committing a criminal offence under the legislation in Barbados.” she warned.

      But have you not seen the several alternatives put forward year after year by the BLP…I note BIM said it will legalize marijuana its okay to say you will do some stuff but the devil is in the detail. Yes I am a supporter of the BLP but I will not be fooled by any party if they do sumting I doh like I say it…but after DLP said they will do dis and do that but never gave the details of how it would be done where did that get us? Are we willing to just go for legalizing marijuana? I did read solutions barbados policies and though I may agree with some of them I’m afraid to support people who are afraid to show their face and publicly speak out while Barbadians grapple with these devastating social and economic issues.

    Ten thousand people turn out . Small number .

I more than likely won’t vote either for the same reason . I always voted BLP but last election I did not vote although I did support the DLP last election . Results of next election might be surprising to some people . BLP might not win especially with these other parties now that will take away votes .

    I wonder if George mentioned that the Life in Leggings March was politicized when his party gave money to ensure that this event continued. Did they pay for influence then in hopes that this would reduce the number of persons attending the BLP protest?

If they can only attract 9,000 marchers from the 74,027 who voted for them last election, may God Help them at the one constitutionally due next year. Yuh mean to tell me that with all the advertisements and robocalling , only 9000 marched.It was a monumental failure taking into consideration the day and time of the week when workers were off day and had no fear of losing a day’s pay. Where were the other 15,000 Owen BBBBBBB’s who were at the political meeting in Bay Street in 2013? All the insinuations about which of the two marches you should have attended, ignore them.

After all the advertisements on radio, on t.v, in the newspapers, robocalls and driving through the communities for two days with loudspeakers inviting people to the march, only 9,000 of their 74,000 supprters at the last elections turned out yesterday.

    DLP General Secretary George Pilgrim:-yesterday’s march, which is said to have attracted about 10,000 people, really was a reflection of how money can influence an election.
    How True Mr.Pilgrim.

    “Based on my knowledge, people were offered money to come and march,” Pilgrim said on Starcom Network’s Down to Brass Tacks programme.
    Mr.Pilgrim, is that an “Alternative Fact” or is it a Real Fact, and if so where is your PROOF.

    Mr.Pilgrim:-The fact that people were willing to turn up to the march and receive a gratuity for just turning up speaks [volumes] of what Barbadians should fear going into the next election,

    Oh Yeah???? Then What goes around does really come around, Yes???

    Mr.Pilgrim:-The BLP has opened “a call centre” with paid staff to mobilize people for the march.

    For Your Information Sir!!!! This is how people are Mobilised all over the World, and it would only be wrong in Barbados if we were NOT Part of the World.

    Pressed to substantiate the claim, Pilgrim responded: “The supermarkets were bursting on Friday.”
    Mr.Pilgrim, maybe if you have a Wife she does the Shopping, when i am Home, The Popular Discounts at the Bottom of my Gap, is ALWAYS Crowded on Fridays, I am 100Yds away and i NEVER shop there on Fridays.

    Pilgrim also alleged that Barbados was being sold out by the Opposition BLP, while warning that as far as the ruling DLP was concerned “Barbados is not on the auction bloc”.
    Oh Yeaah??? you better shut up before the Chinese Hear you, and do to Barbados what they did to Grenada.

    I am going to put you on the Same Level as Trumps Mouth Piece Spicer.You Both sound Silly.

    Hi Observing
    That is how you would like to see it play out. There has never been an election in Barbados during my lifetime that the electorate was fed up with both DLP and BLP. They don’t want another five years of Freundel and they don’t trust Mia for political and other reasons. Owen supporters don’t think that she is fit to be Prime Minister. The Bim drinks chaser talk is good fun for entertainment. That doesn’t bring back Owen and his people to Roebuck Street. Mia’s BLP supporters aren’t enough to take the party over the finish line on election day. The Party needs Owen badly but he says that he will make sure that she doesn’t win the Government.. The minority Parties stand a very good chance of picking up some seats and keep the MP’s from both Parties in check.

    Fellow Bajans what can one expect from Mr. Pilgrim. Is he being not paid to utter word “Rubbish”? If he does not perform in these manner he would be long gonen and on bread line by now.
