Bajan to the bone

The Government of Barbados has been giving us the right economic information all along. Yes they have been assuring us that the economy was “swell”.

What they have now revealed in pure Barbadiana is that they were correct, the economy was and is “swell” — that is, “pregnant” with pain and woe.

It is we who did not understand that the various spokesmen were, over the years, Bajan to the bone, even in the dry bones of the economy.
