Barbados Labour Party welcomes latest CADRES poll: Opposition Leader Mia Mottley says figures show huge swing against ruling DLP

The League of Young Socialists (LYS), the youth arm of the Barbados Labour Party, met recently at Harrison College, Roebuck Street. The meeting mainly focussed on a restrategisation of the junior branch, however one of the LYS was seeking to understand the multitude of figures posed in the print media which outlined a survey done by CADRES, UWI lecturer Peter Wickham’s organisation which seeks to supplant Dr Basil Springer’s Systems in assessing various entities across Barbados.

The usual response from most folk who do not get top billing is that the person seeking the poll usually gets answers they wish to hear, showing she’s far and away above such childish matriculations – Political Leader of the BLP and Opposition Leader of Barbados, Hon.

In the BLP Leader’s own view, Barbados is getting way too tribal in its political outlook, this in turn led the poll to have an Undecided factor of 42% – which if the LYS play their part correctly can build for the BLP whenever next Elections are called

Ms Mottley does not usually find credence in Wickham’s assessment (Who claims his surveys are culled from all 30 constituencies; what is not clear however is it 1,000 Bajans per constituency or 1,000 people for all 30 seats represented?), but this time around there seems to have been more research than usual with an answer which has surprised many but not all Barbadians {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

Last year, she noted, there was a 20 point difference between her party and the current DLP, yet here it is now in 2010 where the differnce is shaved down to an Eight Point margin – this is a swing of 60% in 12 months

More on the Opposition Leader’s interaction with members of the LYS will emerge in a subsequent entry on this Web Magazine…
