For too long we have been denied a REAL VOICE, we have sung in the choir but were not members of the Church. The time is now right under new leadership for Barbados to start on a new path of honesty, decency and INTEGRITY in politics, as in recent times we have lost our compass. The best way to lead is by example and we expect that from those we have entrusted with leadership.
We have had the BLP, who in fifteen long years could not restructure our economy in times of plenty; now they come again with the same faces, singing the same song, but the people have wised up and will have none of it. For the old men/women, young women/men, the middle classes and those of whatever hue, who have the interest of Barbados at heart, should come out in a burst of yellow as bright as that in the Pride of Barbados flower and vote for a better tomorrow.
“That Freundel Stuart may lead and become
A channel of [your] peace
Where there’s despair in life, let him bring
Where there is darkness, only light
And where there is sadness, ever joy”
So that those who have money and more to spend will understand that we will not be bought, and the election is not for sale, we will not sacrifice all for a few dollars more. That we may stand between the portals of the greatest building and declare to all who will listen, we as one are a people of INTEGRITY.
