You know who I am and that I have been a faithful DLP member and supporter (as in money and time) for as long as anybody including me can remember. Please keep my name to yourself for obvious reason.
After 52 months in office and having been in opposition for the last 14 years, our Democratic Labour Party MPs seem not to have come to grips with the fact that we are now the new Government in power. A number of members and supporters of this party are catching hell trying to find work and all we are getting are promises and “a lot of long talk”, but you can’t take the promises to the supermarket.
If you check the statutory corporations, we still have a large number of BLP members and supporters on these boards after over four years and we still feel like we are in opposition. It is time that DLP members both on the front and back benches are reminded that it is us the party members and supporters who put them there and not “God”, so stop treating us like strangers, because 5 years will be up next year, and we will know what to do.
I am calling on you Mr. Prime Minister as leader to meet with your disillusioned DLP members and supporters. The ministers we try to talk with are always promising to call you back, and they don’t have the decency to return your call, and I think that it is time for some of them to be fired.
As of today, I and more than a few fellow disillusioned DLP members and supporters have decided that come election day, we are going to have a picnic on the East Coast Road from 7 A.M to 8 P.M., so that we can mobilize ourselves into playing a vital role on that day.
By having a picnic and doing nothing else except enjoy ourselves.
Disagreeable, Disillusioned Member of the Democratic Labour Party
