When the governor of the Central Bank of Barbados had his little hissy-fit against The Nation, do you think that he envisioned the worldwide condemnation his actions attracted?

  1. PLANTATION DEEDS FROM 1926 TO 2014 , MASSIVE FRAUD ,LAND TAX BILLS AND NO DEEDS OF BARBADOS, BLPand DLP=Massive Fruad

    Deal with truth , If he is telling the truth then no problem , covering up lies for the BLP or the DLP or the new DBLP Party need to be told,
    Both sides can not be telling lie?
    seek truth then fix problems .

    Audit General told the truth
    CB , now telling the truth , watch the path,
    VAT and UDC fraud and the IDB seek the truth on clear titles to land
    None of the 2000 families they were to help had none ,
    MOF said so ,
    PLANTATION DEEDS HAVE THE DEEDS ,
    BARBADOS FRAUD SQUAD HAVE SOME COPIES IN FILE BUT REFUSE TO IN FORCE THE LAWS.
    FOR THE LIES PEOPLE MUST GO HOME, AND DOWN GRADE KEEPS GOING DOWN,
    NO CLEAR TITLES OF LAND IN BARBADOS ,, BUY NOTHING

  2. just want to know

    Barbados is becoming a one party state. If one listen to the A. General & the top cop on the police force; one see where this is going,and this morning a top attorney in the paper saying this is not so. He is seeking redress for the police officers who was over looked for promotion. This does not argur well for us, & to top it all what’s happening at the NCC and the workers. If one is a supporter of the DLP one has a job, if you are not out you go, no opposition must show their heads. Are they going through the voter lists for those who voted for or against, & look where they are going for help to China, who is not a Democratic state, & if one protest they are murdered. Does that say something to Barbadians?

  3. In Defence of Dr. Delisle Worrell Part 2
    My heart burns each time I take up a newspaper and read the comments of the dishonest Barbadian economic gurus who believe that Barbados is quarantined from the effects of the harshest recession ever suffered by nations worldwide.
    Following the news that one of the local commercial banks is laying off staff, one of the gurus is predicting more layoffs due to the mishandling of the economy. While he was forecasting gloom and doom in Barbados, Barclays was announcing the lay-off of 19,000 employees and Royal Bank of Scotland 34000 of their 120000 staff worldwide. Headlines and URL’s are as follow

    (2) RBS to cut 30,000 jobs in bid to be the ‘best bank’ rather than the biggest one

    The above mentioned banks aren’t the only ones which are retrenching staff. J.P Morgan and a few others are following/have followed suit.

    Job losses aren’t the only problems which are affecting workers worldwide. There are many, who have been lucky to have a job but they can’t feed and house their families.

    Every one of the Barbadian gurus has access to the Internet and reads news daily concerning the financial markets worldwide . However they hide the facts and publish half truths hoping that the Barbadian public would be gullible enough to believe that they are experts when they criticize the handling of the Barbadian economy.

    Dr. Worrell, I know how painful it is as a public officer to be put in a position where you can’t respond to these half-baked economists who can’t bring water to wash your feet where economics is concerned. Your academic achievements and your working knowledge put you on a pedestal way out of the reach of these jealous upstarts.
