    They should have kep the disruptive person inside and let everybody else out. Once again, everyone gets punished for the actions of one person.

    There are more fools today than they ever were in a World of foolishness.
    What has now been made clear is that Barbados or bajans are not exempt from danger or potential danger.
    The whole World is a ticking bomb waiting to happen .I don’t think anyone should be surprised if a major Catastrophe occur in the West Indies in the not too distant future,with all the lunatics that are trying to be seen and /or heard.

    Up to last Friday night a LIAT plane had to return to Barbados, because some person spot a laser in the cockpit of the plane and the pilot had to abort landing and return to Barbados.
