UPDATE: Not One Word About Integrity, Transparency, Accountability Legislation In Two Hours Of Radio Show
1:15pm – The programme is now over. David Ellis and the carefully chosen callers never mentioned the government’s failure to implement the promised Integrity, Transparency and Accountability Legislation – or the broken promise to immediately adopt a Ministerial Code.
Peter Wickham came on and repeated the lies that are in his Nation News column today.
Business as usual folks… with a cowed David Ellis facilitating the lies by his silence. It looks like he and VOB Radio are still cowering after allowing Noel Lynch to wash out Ellis’ mouth with soap last year. (background here)
Time for the Barbados Integrity Party.

The show has started, but both the DLP and BLP representatives are “late”.
11:10am – BLP Opposition Senator Kerry Simmons has shown up, but David Ellis won’t say who is coming from the government because he doesn’t know!
11:20am – DLP Government representative Senator Maxine McClean arrives…
We shall listen in with everyone and comment later, although our main points of reference are…
1/ The BLP Opposition is totally without credibility because they are unable to criticise the government on most of the big issues – because their performance when in government was reprehensible. Think about the BLP complaining about the DLP failing to implement ITAL? Hilarious!
2/ The DLP Government was elected in good measure on their promise to embrace ITAL – Integrity, Transparency, Accountability Legislation. Words no longer count for the DLP Government – only actions.
There has been no action on ITAL – nothing at all – and less than that, David Thompson lied during the election about his intent to adopt a Ministerial Code on day one.
There is really little reason for the DLP Government to send a representative to attend Brass Tacks today because we already know everything we need to know about their ITAL initiatives from the government doing nothing.
Regarding ITAL – the DLP Government’s words don’t count any longer. They don’t mean a thing.
