Message To The U.K. News Media: British High Commissioner To Barbados Is NOT Our “Barbados’ Head Of Trade”

“During the Trade Visit, Thomas had the opportunity to outline Akome’s services to Barbados’ Head of Trade, British High Commissioner Duncan Taylor. On his recommendation, Akome approached BICO.”

UK Press Release: BICO Ice Cream Gets A New Roof In Barbados

The story came to us as a press release and is actually a very interesting and informative piece about how Akome Energy helped BICO slash energy bills in half with a few changes.

Barbados Head Of Trade? I Don't Think So!

Barbados Head Of Trade? I Don't Think So!

But last I heard, Barbados is no longer a British Colony. We’ve had our own government and Trade Minister for at least a couple of weeks now.  ;-)

A small point, but it just shows you that some folks still have the same image of Barbados that they had 50 or 100 years ago.

Am I being too sensitive here, my friends?

    You are not too sensitive. Good job setting the record straight in a friendly manner.

    How about the fact that the British standard of journalism has fallen.

    Would an Advocate or Nation reporter be chastised so gently?

    Well we need to stay in the Brits good books so let us just call it a likkle mistake.

    And now for something different.
    I listening to VOB and just heard Creditel give a list of people they are trying to contact.
    Very unusual.

  3. uh?

    that seems to be a user created press release ie, not from media house but from a company’s PR person

    Sloppy writing. They meant to say that Britain’s Head of Trade in Barbados is British High Commissioner…

    Yes barspecs, probably, maybe, a case of sloppy writing but we are sensitive to THIS mistake. 400 years of history has made us so.
