DLP still has the winning formula, says Ince

Government Senator Jepter Ince is confident that having provided the blueprint for the development of Barbados, the incumbent Democratic Labour Party (DLP) will be returned to office whenever general elections are called.

Ince made this bold prediction today while speaking at DLP’s lunchtime lecture at party headquarters, George Street, St Michael.

“I have said it before, and I will say it again, and I will continue to say it, I am confident that whenever the Honourable Freundel Jerome Stuart sets the date for a general elections in this country, the DLP is going to be returned to office.

“I have said it over and over again without fear and trembling, the people of Barbados are going to make a decision on who is better able to lead this country. I am confident that when the comparative analysis is done that they are going to come down on the side of the DLP and Freundel Jerome Stuart,” Ince maintained, adding that “we have a case to put, and we have done well.”

Ince, who is the parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs, further argued that “the DLP is the greatest institution this side of the world.

“So when we look at the years 1966 to 1976 and we begin to speak of this blueprint there are a number of things that we can look at. The DLP transformed Barbados, free secondary education in 1962 [and] introduction of school meals against the threat that opponents of the programme were going to punch hole in the pots and pans and roll them down Gunhill, St George.

“The philosophy of the DLP was that hungry children cannot learn. You know when you are hungry you cannot see, you begin to see all kinds of colours. [DLP founding father] the Right Excellent Errol Barrow said his party would give the children hot meals at ten cents. It worked and it still works from 1963 until now,” Ince said.

The DLP spokesman said the party understood clearly about diversifying and restructuring the local economy as it was doing today.

He contended that it was Errol Barrow who brought Barbadians from the plantations picking pond grass at “four cents a day or three cents a day”.

“ Can you imagine being paid three or four cents a day for picking pond grass. How much pond grass can you pick in a day? So you understand what I mean when I say the blueprint of Barbados is the DLP?”

The Government senator argued that achieving independence was the turning point for the development of Barbados.

Showering high praise on his own party for the establishment of the National Insurance Scheme in 1967, Ince said: “What for me was the greatest piece of work of the DLP was the establishment of the National Insurance Scheme. Even with the introduction of free education, even with the construction of the Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology, even with the establishment of a hotel school, the greatest thing that ever happened to Barbados was the establishment of the National Insurance Scheme.

“It touches every possible area of Barbados. It offers financial benefits in several areas of life and provides a pension for the retired in their twilight days. The NIS is a lifesaver. If you are thinking about social development you look at the NIS and if you are looking at economic development you look at the NIS. The scheme also provides funds to Government for major capital projects,” Ince added.

    Jesper or Justso; Free lunch and free education has not done much for you. Speaking about Independence, Gearbox could have gotten it because Barbados was no longer an asset to the mother country so why would she want to hold on to Barbados and what Independence? when you`all still have to get permission from the Queen and want those handles such as “Sir” to your names. You speak of pulling pond grass for 4 cents an day which probably went further than today`s and Barrow gave $20 and a penny to pick or cut the same pond grass years after, when he won the election. One of the best things that happen between the 60s and the 70s bajans found a way to get out of Barbados in big numbers. Now your government is the biggest beneficiary of the NIS., plundering and misusing the funds in a way that it did not meant for, so don`t say to the people what the BLP did, tell them what your party has done for the 10 years, tax, tax, tax. Good riddance fella.

    for 2 terms, when you look at the things to do list of a government , they cant show a tick
    anywhere , yet still they have gotten away with staying in office, the opposition failed miserably
    at challenging a failed governing , this is because they couldn’t , the right to do so doesn’t exists……
    ………………………Thats why I totally agree with (Mr. Jepter ) the only challenge to the government , the (Today Forum and the 20,000 march which happen because the white folk joined the group ……….. The question which needs to be answered , if the present government is returned to office what would bajans do……….
    We would then have for a further 5 year term , the same failed government who cannot manage (Barbados LTD) Then how could we the people be rid of the same …………………………………..
    A politician said we need … a code of practice what would that do , nothing because politicians has embedded they themselves in our political infrastructure and the control of the voters who seems very scared to come out democratically in public to explain themselves………..

    For me again I am saying the same, we need an act of parliament namely so ( Accountability Act 2017
    which give our voters the automatic right to use the same votes which put the MPs in office ,is used to have them remove , in they are not working on behalf of the people ……. What is change worth if the people want change but scared to bring about change , we will never see the light at the end of the tunnel , we must be careful or else we will always be standing in line begging with tin cup in hand, never be able to do for ourselves, being a nation who is scared of itself………………

    Any Party who gets in power has a hard task a head. DLP had a hard time power with no real experience in their ranks except Mr Estwick. I hope they leave some money for the next Government to put programs and measures in place.

    Legal measures need to be put in place for ministers who abuse their appointments, lt looks like a lot of ministers have foreign bank account after being in power, something needs to be put in place to lock them up with so many people suffering. As usual nothing will be said and those said ministers will get away with it.

    Too many things have happen without a reaction from the prime minister, the only time he reacts is when it is said overseas.

    All in all legal measures need to be in place for ministers who are clearly crooked, just like any other country in the World

    Do we need another political party from the dorm of the DLP and BLP to take the reigns of the country?

What is interesting is that you BLP people seem to have forgotten the reasons you were voted out of office in the first place and behave as though you are now saved and sanctified, went all the way to heaven, was born back over and now you are without any sins.

      Nobody has to try to make the DLP look bad, they are doing fine all by themselves.

      With respect, parties who live in glasshouses should not throw stones on the issue of lifestyle, whatever aspect of it you may be addressing.

      Check the history of the DLP, it certainly is not as pure as driven snow and falls very short on all counts. Suffice to say that after destroying this country, impoverishing 98% of its people and enriching 2%, sterile accusations about lifestyle and morality are not going to cut it next election, don’t care how hard people try. Broken promises, lack of performance, poor policies, failure to take advice from any quarter. These are the things that people are going to decide the next election on.

    He is a political Scientist and he was dead wrong;

    How can one man be so stupid? Imagine in 2017 he is talking about picking pond grass,well of course he was addressing a bunch of old people who would know about pond grass and being paid 3 cents.Jester would have to be the greatest clown no pun intended in Barbados.

    Randolph:
    If you don’t know where you are coming from ,going in circles can take you where you started .
    the problem we now face is simply this : not too many of us are prepared to plant of sew any thing : except maybe Ganja, but you cant eat that , and too many of the working class of old has not passed on the work ethics to this or the last two or three generations ,
    do you see his comments only in the context of POND Grass ? i see it in deeper sense.
    maybe you should pretend it is a BLP that wrote that and see if it make any sense to you.
    But do you know what was the value of# Cents back then ,can you imagine our national dish is made from corn and we import 100 % of the corn to prepare it , 300 years pass and we cant make Dried Salted Fish , we import Molasses and we love Rum , we don’t have a single sweet drink made at home we should not be too critical about picking pond Grass , do you know of any ponds that has Pond Grass ,maybe the grass spray has destroyed that as well . i Picked pond Grass . i had a sheep and my Cousin had a Goat , my Family raised Pigs . so if i was passing and i see pond Grass I picked it and took it for the animals ,I hope you find some Thing Here to digest.
