How Many Hundreds Of Millions Of Dollars Did We Pay For The New Prison?
The inmates burned the last place down, so we had to build the new one.
What a great idea! Put hundreds of the most vicious, anti-social men we can find all in the same place and shut the water off for a week – because (according to a Nation article here) the storage tanks that are supposed to hold enough water to keep the place going for a week have NEVER worked.
Yup. Unfortunately that sounds like the Barbados I know and love… where hundreds of millions of tax dollars can be overspent on “consultants” but our “new” Kensington Oval didn’t have lighting for the Cricket World Cup finals. Where eight of twelve ambulances aren’t in service at the hospital – some because of stupid little things like a bearing that could be fixed in an hour, but we just don’t have what it takes to MAKE IT HAPPEN.
And now we learn that the water system at the prison has never been installed correctly.
WHO – WHAT PERSON – is responsible for this?
I’ll tell you who… “This is Barbados. No named person will ever be held responsible for anything.”
