Greg Cozier sidesteps Vaucluse Raceway lawbreaking

NO PERMIT WAS ISSUED but Crozier and his friends said “Piss on the law, we’ll build anyway.” and that is exactly what they did.

Damage Control over Bizzy Williams telling the truth!

Dear Barbados Free Press,

You haven’t written about Greg Cozier’s reply to your Bizzy Williams’ “piss on the law” story. Did you miss it in Barbados Today?

“Anyone reading … [timeline of events regarding Vaucluse Raceway] would immediately see that, on one hand, branches of the Government of Barbados supported the creation of Vaucluse Raceway while, on the other hand, other branches of Government opposed it,”

Greg Crozier quoted in Barbados Today Blame Gov’t for conflict

Mr. Cozier is one of the principals behind the Vaucluse Raceway and it looks to me like he tried to do some damage control after Bizzy Williams pointed out that Crozier and his friends broke the law by building the racetrack. (Bizzy also admitted that he didn’t obey the law either when he built Bushy Park track.)

Cry “Government Red Tape” for public sympathy

Barbados Today says “Greg Cozier clears air regarding bureaucratic red tape with Vaucluse” but there’s no “air clearing” that I can see. Mr. Crozier attempts to justify his lawbreaking by blaming “government red tape”. He ducks and weaves all around the truth: When he and his partners couldn’t get their own way, like Bizzy Williams they said “Piss on the law” and just went ahead anyway.

It is true that some government departments (like Industry) supported Vaucluse, but it is also true that many more in government oppose the raceway including the local MP. After a study the Ministry of the Environment was dead against it and refused to issue permits and the Ministry go ahead. Agriculture is against it.

Thousands of people in the area and on the access routes are dead against the project because we put up with HELL whenever there is an event at Vaucluse Raceway: noise, garbage, traffic congestion, drunks and bad behaviour and that is when the crowds head in before the racing starts!

At night the sound of the engines carries so far and it is LOUD. We have one of the highest population densities in the world and we don’t need more noise.

Most at the Barbados Tourism Authority are luke warm to Vaucluse at best because they recognize that we have so much willy-nilly development on the island that we are in danger of losing the beauty and feel of Barbados. This is more willy-nilly development because there was no plan at any stage. Vaucluse started as a dirt track with no approvals or permits. Crozier and his friends just did what they wanted to do and to HELL with the rest of the community especially the nearby residents.

Don’t be fooled by the Barbados Today interview and article. Crozier will either get away with breaking the law, or he won’t. Whatever happens to him will be an example to everyone else.

The “red tape” that Crozier is talking about are LAWS that he and his friends didn’t comply with. The “red tape” is our government saying “NO” based upon the rules and standards we have in Barbados.

NO PERMIT WAS ISSUED but Crozier and his friends said “Piss on the law, we’ll build anyway.” and that is exactly what they did.

Murderous North Koreans mourn Cubana Flight 455, ignore their bombing of Korean Air

No tears for Korean Air Flight 858

“The story of Kim Hyon Hui, the beautiful North Korean agent who planted the bomb, is truly compelling. You see, she once lived in Cuba where her father was the North Korean Ambassador to Cuba…”

On Thursday, October 6, 2011 our Barbados diplomats in Cuba stood shoulder to shoulder with the North Korean Ambassador at a memorial service in Havana for the victims of Cubana Flight 455.

I have to wonder if anyone at the service was thinking of how North Korean government agents planted a bomb on Korean Air Flight 858 and murdered all 115 people on the airplane in 1987.

What do you say to the Ambassador of a country that murdered children flying home to see their parents? What do you say to the Ambassador of a country that kidnapped people at random off Japanese beaches?

What do our diplomats talk about with the evil North Korean despots? The weather? Or perhaps “How are those executions by bulldozer coming along? Quite efficient, saving on ammunition like that. Would you like another glass of wine, Ambassador?”

North Korea’s leadership are truly evil, and I’m not just talking about a few big ups at the top. The evil permeates all the way down. Did our diplomats not feel just a little hypocritical as they watched the North Korean Ambassador lament the loss of lives on Cubana 455? I’d like to know.

If you don’t know about Korean Air Flight 858, you owe it to yourself to take a few minutes.

The story of Kim Hyon Hui, the beautiful North Korean agent who planted the bomb, is truly compelling. You see, she once lived in Cuba where her father was the North Korean Ambassador to Cuba.
