BLP Blog & Government Minister Both Silent As Land Scandal Continues
As of 12:01am September 9, 2006, the official blog of the ruling Barbados Labour Party had not posted a new article in over a week – with the last entry being made on September 1, 2006.
During the same week, the Barbados Free Press published a series of hard-hitting articles dealing with perceived corruption by a Government Cabinet Member after the expropriation of privately-held lands.
Other BFP articles for the week concerned an important court case being watched by the international investment community, and the BLP Government’s 12-year failure to introduce Integrity and Conflict of Interest legislation.
Cat Got BLP Bloggers’ Tongues!
After 5 months of extensive postings, the BLP Blog fell silent for a full week – notwithstanding that various BLP members of government visited the Barbados Free Press during that same week – some even posting comments defending the actions of Public Works Minister Gline Clarke.
But the BLP Blog remained mute – seemingly not daring to write anything – let alone writing about the growing scandal.
