Dr. Worrell must consider himself a very important and powerful person

This is so typical of the Bajan elites’ contempt for freedom of the press and the right of citizens to hold government officials and institutions accountable.
Central Bank Governor, Dr. DeLisle Worrell, took issue with a story about the central bank as published in The Nation. So does he ask the paper for space to present his thoughts to the citizens? Does he demand an apology, retraction or correction? Does he write an article to be published in the media or on the bank’s website?
Nope… he bans Nation journalists from all bank events. Worrell wants to control what the press says about him and this is his stupid, thuggish reaction to an article he disagreed with.
Maybe I’m missing something here, but banning journalists doesn’t seem to be the smartest option.
Then again, as former Prime Minister Owen Arthur has often commented in so many words: DeLiesle Worrell never was the sharpest pencil in the box.
