Member of Parliament for The City Jeffrey Bostic is blaming Government inaction for the problems facing the country.
The Barbados Labour Party (BLP) legislator said the Freundel Stuart administration had ample time to put measures in place to avert social decay, but had done little to that effect.
What is more, Bostic charged that instead of sticking to promises to lower the cost of living, a socially balanced, environmentally sound and economically viable society, the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Government had overseen a significant increase in the cost of living, social disintegration, an unsound environment and an unviable economy.
“We see what is happening within our schools, in our communities and all aspects of our lives,” said Bostic, who expressed disappointment that the DLP members of the House did not address these issues yesterday during the opening of the debate on the Barbados Sustainable
Recovery Plan (BSRP) and the 2018-19 Estimates.
“In terms of good governance, that will have to be decided by the people of this country whenever that time comes. The people will make their decision and we will know exactly where we are with that,” he said in reference to the pending general election, which is constitutionally due by June.
