Barbados Government censorship of news media a diversion for 3,000 workers fired at Christmas!

It seems to me that both the “Child Porn” (the teens’ faces were blurred, and the sex act is not well-defined) against the Nation and this latest salvo per Speaker striking a comment and paper carrying it is merely Government trying to build a case so as to muzzle The Nation. It is only a matter of time before they come after other news media as well. Why attack 6 weeks after the event? Prime Minster Stuart knew the 3,000 workers sent home was afoot an he and his DLP Government are scared as IMF is here for “Management”! This is nothing but a diversion. This is nothing except something to occupy the public’s attention while 3,000 families are gutted at Christmas.

I believe there might be a minor infraction in the Nation’s 10th paragraph that reported on a matter struck from parliament’s record – but it is minor. The fact that the DLP Government took six weeks to refer to the police indicates the smallness of the offence and a witch-hunting approach with backroom zealots poring over every report looking for media (Nation) slip-ups.

Dearest BFP: please reprint the Nation article, and ask everyone on the internet to reprint it. We must not let freedom of the press be gutted by a bunch of corrupt bastards.
