Sandals Resort Bombardier Challenger jet burns duty-free fuel… Minister Inniss tells hotel industry to shut up about Sandals Resort concessions

“Stop begging for handouts and asking for all sorts of concessions and start doing more to help local industry,” said Inniss.

Too bad Inniss didn’t say the same thing to Sandals Resorts because they don’t serve one drop of Bajan rum. Not a fucking drop.

Just a few days ago, Minister of Industry and Business Development Donville Inniss chided Barbados hotels to stop begging to receive the same concessions given to the Sandals Group. Minister Inniss made it clear that local hotels should shut-the-f**k-up about the government’s incentives to Sandals.

So… STFU you ungrateful Barbados hotels who are exploiting the masses! You deserve nothing… not a single inflated dollar of tax relief!

Meanwhile, Sandals fills up their corporate jets with duty-free Jet-A and 3,000 Bajan families go to hell for Christmas courtesy of government layoffs.

Thanks, Prime Minister Stuart! Thanks Minister Pornville!

It make everything clear.

Inniss tells Bajan hotels to shut up!

Stop begging for handouts and start being more innovative, and use more local produce.

Minister of Industry and Business Development Donville Inniss issued this piece of advice to operators within the hotel sector this morning as he delivered the feature address during the opening of the Sunbury Harvest Agro-Processing Plant.

Players within the hotel sector, over the past few weeks, have raised concerns regarding a number of food and beverage concessions offered to the Sandals Group by the Government, saying that they too should be given such concessions.

Speaking to a small gathering at the St Philip location this morning, Inniss said: “In terms of our hotel sector, let me be candid about this.

“Stop begging for handouts and asking for all sorts of concessions and start doing more to help local industry,” said Inniss.

    He sound like he is an untouchable, Power Hungry, Power Mad, Power gone to the head, I say five years is enough for any Party ( particularly ) after they showed that they did not have a clue on how to run a Country, after that they become Power Mad and Untouchable.

    Owen and Mia are no better. If anything they were better thieves.

    Bad times are on the horizon. Worse times than we have seen since independence.

    I have fears for my country and my neighbours. Crime is getting so bad. People are breaking and it hasn’t gotten anywhere as bad as it will be.

    Rules/laws – whichever you want to call them must be applied fairly and squarely and with no exception otherwise they will be seen as giving preferential treatment to the few. Or at worst a spot of bribery involved for favours granted. But hey which politician has his constituents at heart ? NONE

    As a hotelier, I would like to beg for a Challenger 300 Corporate Jet.
    I understand they currently cost only US$24 million each and have an operational cost of US$5,000 per hour. In the spirit of things I would also like to have my initials on the tail. Instead of N991GS (Gordon “Butch’ Stewart, could I please have N991AL.

    If you working in Barbados you or others must make sure you feed your self , , for they will make sure you loose your work.
    If you a plumber , carpenter, mason so on , you will be fine or even a grass cutter..
    All of this is tied up in the Land , When some one else is on top , They will Show what these crooks have been doing for years.

    Plantation Deeds

    I said I won’t live anywhere else but these jokers my even force me to move .

    Well for Sandals to have come this far and have been this successful, they have certainly been doing something right. Adrian, I can’t help but to think that you are jealous of Sandals Success. You always seem to get personal and seldom have an intelligent debate. Your article about there not being any local rum at Sandals bars is completely false.

  12. Nomad

    Yes Nickie French, i do agree that Adrian does come over a bit personal as if he has an axed to grind with Sandals. I see the Sandals ads on US networks like Fox, CNN, NBC. Their marketing machinery is huge and like all the other islands they are in Barbados stands to benefit.
    I have been asking friends who live in Antigua where Sandals has been since the early 90s and they have credited Sandals for attracting Airlift to Antigua especially from the US. They are a stable company that appears to be well run. Its a ray of fresh hope for Barbados.

  13. Nomad

    Unfortunately Santa has already comeand gone but I am sure butch will put you Adrian at the head do the list for next year. Nevertheless, he needs to make sure that the initials GS that’s currently on the plane needs to be much bigger, to compensate for the size of your head, if it needs to change to AL.

    We all hope the Sandals ray of hope will not be a ray of false hope; but given that, as a private company, Sandals does not disclose any information about its financial condition or financial details of its Barbados deals we do not know if it is stable.

    Only time will tell.
