One of our readers in New York City alerted us to the fact that Barbados Opposition Leader David Thompson is speaking today in New York City at 4:30pm. Either this wasn't very well publicised or we just missed it.
Here are the details as we see them in the New York Daily News article by Jared McCallister…
Barbados opposition leader David Thompson will speak today (Sunday June 4, 2006) at Brooklyn's St. Alban's Church hall, 9408 Farragut Road (between E. 94th and E. 95th Sts.) at 4:30 p.m.
The event is part of the Friends of Barbados D.L.P. Association's Errol Barrow Lecture Series. Call Lennox Price at (718) 241-6123, Mona Byone at (718) 251-3928, Annette Alleyne-Merritt at (718) 493-2723, or Shirley and Audrey Hair Concepts at (718) 363-2656.
There was only one mention of this online – a New York Daily News article published just this morning, the very day that Mr. Thompson was speaking.
Not very well done DLP
I just wish that the DLP and PEP could get themselves together somehow – as Barbados lacks an effective Opposition, and has become pretty well a one-party state. That is not healthy for any country.
But before the DLP talks about running a government, perhaps they could learn to not wait until the morning of the event to announce that the Leader of The Opposition is speaking…
… unless, it is just not that important.
Here Is An Offer To Barbados Political Parties
The Barbados Free Press is read by thousands of people every week from Barbados and around the world – and consistently returns page one listings on Google and other search engines. If a political party or organization wishes to announce any meetings or special events in advance, then drop us an email and we will make the announcement online for you.
This might be of special interest to the two Barbados political parties that don't have any online presence at all.
