An American Tourist Considers Sam Lord’s Castle
I decided to post these pictures anyway: first, to show what future renovators are up against; second, to show CLICO’s attitude toward the property.
If I may speculate upon Bajan politics, on analogy with American and British politics, I think what we’re seeing here is an extortion tactic. “Nice place you got here”, says CLICO; “shame if anything were to happen to it”. The longer they make the government wait, the more urgent the problem becomes.
