Well this is my first time writing to you guys, not sure what the procedure is, but I hope I can get some of this info online to those who may not already know.
For the the sake of those who are not already aware, what happens in Barbados on the political level is not by chance. The exploits and mis-adventures of our political representatives is merely a symptom of the greater problem. Yes greed and corruption are the order of the day when it comes to these dubious “projects” around the island and D/BLP (yes that is intentional, I see no distinction) and associates are wholly aware of what is wrong.
There are powerful forces shaping the socio-political landscape of this and other caribbean islands, and our government “leaders” are not the innocent puppets they will claim they were when the truth finally comes out. The tactic is to keep the population distracted enough with mindless diversions, the youth with the entertainment and elders with established religion (not to be confused with true spirituality which I will go into later if I am allowed). Keep your population divided and disorganized, continue to fuel the xenophobia of peoples of our region (Trinidad, Guyana?) and promote the love of the true foreigners “up north”.
Sell your infrastructure and base your economy solely on fickle industries (tourism anyone?). A few questions should be on our minds (amongst others I should hope)…
– If things are so grand why is the IMF around again?
– If not the barbadian people who does Owen truly answer to?
– What was the true motive for Kensington Oval?
Any way thats just some food for thought I hope I can post more in the near future, some really serious stuff.
