In case anyone hasn’t noticed, opposition to the new Solid Waste Tax is turning into a national cause – uniting taxpayers across party lines. It may well be the proverbial ‘straw’.
The sight of Opposition Leader Mia Mottley cursing the government for introducing the tax is laughable though – considering that it was Mottley and Arthur and their BLP who robbed de place bare when they were the government. Had the BLP government acted properly when in power, Barbados would be in much better shape today.
We’re broke. Something has to give and both parties are responsible.
But this tax is not going to fly. People haven’t got it, and they can’t pay what they don’t have and won’t ever have.
Freundel Stuart should read some books on what happened 1937.
Different situation, I know, but this kettle is already boiling and the Municipal Solid Waste Tax just turned up the heat.
