It would appear that some outspoken activists of the Unity Labour Party are seemingly becoming disoriented by with their party’s performance.
Since entering their fourth term, the ULP which holds the reins of Government has been experiencing political turbulence.
The Opposition appears to be laying it on with no stopping, as they intend to take the crown in 2020.
From Election Petitions to conditions at various Health Centers across the island, Accountability of public funds, Villagers complaints of bad roads, and high unemployment amongst the youth.
Lately supporters and activist of the party have also been voicing their discontent about issues openly on the social media platform Facebook.
News784 spoke with Tammy Kirby, a fierce defender of the ULP, who appears to be sympathising with some issues brought by the Opposition.
She told News784 on reflection life is too short to hold animosity and enemies in the name of politics.
“You only get one shot at life, “ One,” I say love your brothers and sisters like there is no tomorrow”.
Kirby told News784 that while she maintains support for the ULP, she has great concern about the way politics have become.
“We have been brought to ripping each other apart, am done and in that regard, I am dropping the lawsuit against Margaret London”.
Kirby told News784 that supporters of the party are suffering more than those that support the New Democratic Party.
“Our supporters are being brushed aside; there are people who act as if they support the comrade while undermining him, but who’s listening”.
ULP Activists who spoke with News784 said while the ULP has done projects such as the Argyle Airport and the Education Revolution, which has benefited the country immensely, they feel the party losing its grip on the electorate base on the groundwork they conducted.
“There is no serious internal strife that I am aware of, but it would appear that ULP is engulfed in a crisis one which has to do with the economy”.
“People don’t have disposable income; the average man would tell you the money is with one section of society, this is not idle talk, we are listening, we wish those in charge would listen to us,” another activist told News784.
