CARICOM Double Talk: Barbados Must Give Up Sovereignty To Keep Sovereignty

His Excellency The Most Honourable Professor Kenneth Q. Hall recently lectured the 9th Annual Meeting of the CARICOM Legal Affairs Committee…

Concept #1: Barbados and other CARICOM members must transfer significant sovereignty to the larger group if CARICOM is to work…

Kari Levitt, Lloyd Best and Clive Thomas are of the view that the Single Market could not be effective without a significant transfer of sovereignty.

Concept #2: CARICOM nations need to have their individual sovereignty "validated" by the group…

Small nations such as those in the Caribbean not only need to work together in the context of a concerted effort to promote closer cooperation among themselves but also need the support of international organizations to validate their sovereignty and protect their interests, particularly in the climate of an aggressive unilateralism pursued by some members of the international community.

Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk…

As if Barbados needs to have it's sovereignty "validated" by other nations any more than it is already.

For Barbados, CARICOM is primarily about importing cheap labour from other countries. Period.
