I’ll be darned…
According to an email that just arrived at Barbados Free Press, the Opposition BLP are at this moment considering whether or not to publish their copy of the Government’s Throne Speech – with commentary – on the BLP blog.
Apparently they wanted to take their time in responding to the Throne Speech, but calls are being made to see if they can beat the government in making the speech available to citizens.
If they have what it takes to pull this off, the BLP will have embarrassed the government from day one. We note that since they lost the election, the Opposition BLP have continued to utilize the internet to have two-way direct communication with citizens, while the Government DLP has abandoned their blog since achieving power.
This should be interesting…
Here’s the BLP Blog Link.
Government Abandons DLP Blog
We notice that the Government DLP Blog hasn’t published a thing – not even a thank you – since January 13, 2008. It sure does look like the DLP just used the blog and then abandoned it when they achieved power. No more direct communication necessary with the citizens, I guess. Perhaps now that they have achieved power the DLP prefers methods of communication that they can control.
It kind of fits right in with the Throne Speech issue, doesn’t it?
Nope, I don’t like the feel of this at all.
