“Google search engine is pulling your pig image of Prime Minister David Thompson in its search mode. The image may have been hacked or intentional, but nevertheless, I do not think that it should remain in its present state. Not sure if you are aware, but a lot of us would appreciate that it is rectified. For me its not about politics or how we feel about a person, but rather its more about respect to a memory of not this prime ministers only but every one of them. Hope you understand.”
Should Barbados Free Press remove cartoons of deceased politicians?
Well folks, what do you think? We haven’t created any new political cartoons of David Thompson since he died because 1/ We have a new Prime Minister in charge of corruption, and 2/ We don’t think we should create disrespectful political cartoons of dead people, at least in the immediate time after their passing.
We are aware though, that had David Thompson lived he would have been savaged in the coming election for the breaking of his election promises regarding integrity and transparency, his corrupt actions relating to the CLICO fraud and many other actions of the DLP piggy government.
Should we remove the David Thompson political cartoons? All of them? Some of them? Just the piggy ones? Just the ones deemed ‘disrespectful’ by our readers?
Should we remove the one about David Thompson’s corrupt relationship with Leroy Parris and his free use of a corporate jet when the Barbados Government provided favours to the corporation?
What do you think?
