We are puzzled by the seeming ignorance of these Caribbean government leaders. For really, it is the Caribbean governments who are hosting the Cricket World Cup.
Therefore, we expect that they would have ensured that the interests of the region and its peoples were protected.
If, as they are now trying to have us believe, they were not fully apprised of the CWC negotiations, they really should not be running the affairs of the region.
For simply put, what Dr Davies, Dr Mitchell and Ms Mottley, who was vice chair of the Caricom security ministers committee, have now told us, is that they are guilty of dereliction of duty.

Mia Mottley’s “It’s Not Our Fault” Speech Just So Much Rubbish
The editorial in The Jamaica Observer says everything we’ve wanted to say about the Deputy Prime Minister running for cover during her pathetic little speech last week. Except for the fact that Mottley is our Deputy Prime Minister and head of the CARICOM Security Committee, she sounded like some 9-year old telling the teacher “the dog ate my homework.”
We can’t explain it any better than the editorial writer at The Jamaican Observer, so take the time to read their excellent piece.
