Barbados Forum Photo: Shadowy Hallam Nichols – One Of PM’s Inner Circle
The Government Can’t Keep Bajans Quiet!
We can’t help but notice that in the short time since the Barbados Government slapped down Voice of Barbados radio journalist David Ellis, Bajans are becoming bolder on the various blogs and chat sites. They are naming names, asking questions and exchanging information about the political and economic elites who for so long have enjoyed immunity from real accountability.
The Genie Is Out Of The Bottle
… and it will be quite a job if the government decides to tries to put that genie back into the bottle.
The Barbados Underground today published an article on Hallam Nichols – one of the shadowy figures constantly seen hanging about in the background when the Prime Minister is handling any crisis.
This article was picked up by the discussion group over at Barbados Forum, who came up with the above photo of Hallam Nichols. The discussions at Barbados Forum are becoming much more freewheeling than in the past.
Bajans have obviously decided that enough is enough. Citizens will discuss political figures and politics in the manner and depth that they choose.
“The Government Can’t Sue Us All”
Minister of Tourism Noel Lynch made a big mistake when he stormed out of the Brass Tacks call-in radio show – but that was nothing compared with the subsequent pillaring of journalist David Ellis and his gun-to-the-head apology to Minister Lynch.
Barbados strongman Owen Arthur may find that his strategy of controlling the media, journalists and citizens by threats of legal action is becoming less effective as Bajans realise that it is nothing more than a sign of his guilt and fear.
