Oh the irony!

There must be some good reason why a country on the day it celebrates its Independence would abstain from voting in support of a people seeking only non-member observer status in the United Nations where, 46 years ago, that independent country, Barbados, asserted its identity with the Errol Barrow dictum: “We will be friends of all and satellites of none.”

What an irony!

Should we await the reason, or will we hear more about political ornaments, scamps, pickpockets and snake-oil salesmen?
