Barbados Government’s 140 Days Of Broken Promises – In Four Easy Steps

UPDATED: December 19, 2011

Here we are after almost four years of Democratic Labour Party government and no Integrity Legislation that the DLP promised. There’s no promised Freedom of Information law so the politicians can still do what they like and hide. No accountability. No conflict of interest rules so government officials can award contracts to their own companies. In the last four years several officials have done just that and continue in their employment.

This post was originally published in June 2008 when we decided that we had been fooled. LOOK AT THE COMMENTS by the DLP supporters calling us down to the lowest. We were called everything under the sun because that Integrity Legislation was right around the bend.

Where are these DLP apologists now? What do they have to say four years later?

The DLP lied to us. They are lying still, and so are the BLP. Who are you going to vote for? For me, my vote goes to “Anybody except the DLP and BLP”.
