“There is no surer mechanism for guaranteeing transparency than a Freedom of Information Act and the various regulations that make it work. It is long overdue in Anguilla. Here, it is nearly impossible to obtain any information on the programmes or activities of any department of Anguilla. Most government activity in Anguilla is a state secret.
It is long overdue that we bring that abortion of a system of government to an end.”
Don Mitchell writing at Corruption-free Anguilla
A shame that our corrupt Barbados politicians have never, and will never, pass Freedom of Information and Integrity Legislation. We recently heard that former BLP secretary and current MP Dr. William Duguid said quite unambiguously that Barbados politicians will never pass such legislation because it is not in their interest.
Quite right, Dr. Duguid. You should know.
