Barbados Free Press Cartoons

A BFP reader requested a re-print of one of our header cartoons and that developed into this page where sooner or later you’ll see some of your old favourites. We’ll add a few every week in no particular order.

In the case of headers and cartoons that don’t fit this page size, we’ll put up a thumbnail that will take you to the full-sized cartoon.


David Simmons Virgin Chief Justice Barbados

Above: September 25, 2008 – Opposition Leader Mia Mottley is upset that Prime Minister David Thompson accused the BLP of stashing stolen money in offshore bank accounts… but she isn’t fool enough to sue Thompson!

    I think whats going on today over there

  2. Michael

    I think Nasia, what we will see is nothing but an increase in unemployment as is already evident and a Prime Minister who continues to lie to the people of Barbados and then be ratted out by the Governor of the Central Bank (God bless her heart) and you can expect an election to be called in 2010 where the DLP will be washed out of office like they were never there, however what will be left is a spade of increased debt and evidence of economic recklessness.

    Have a good day 🙂

    u know it is interestin how you all sit around and cast around blame u allow yurselves to be sucked into the absurdities of campignes around election time and then when all the ‘glamour’ of elections have passed and you are left with people who cant tell adam from eve you want to complain you guys put them there so get over it and deal with it. whining can’t do a damn thing now. the only thing left to do now is w8 for the next election and this time listen and analyze wat your’e politicians are sayin so u can make the best decision. that simple.

    calling on the christian communities in Barbados to a new way to celebrate the birth of Christ.A day to study the teachings of Jesus and make new commitments to honour the life of Jesus by following the commitments made.Instead of exchanging gifts donate to the poor ,the orphans both in your communities and in tne Caribbean.Let us put Haiti as a priority for this year.

    Let’s have a Truth & Declaration Act (TDA).
    ALL POLITICIALS to fIle this with a special Commission set up under TDA.

    IF THEY are unwilling or unable to do so for whatever reason then there be an ASSUMPTION OF MONEY LAUNDERING.

    You will see what will happen. Mass exodus/immigration of the volchers and politicians.

    i dont think anybody should talk about anybody because you’re not in their shoes. you don’t know how hard their life is. you don’t know what they go though everyday.
