    Wanna see this government they ain’t easy, they already know that Bajans hopping mad about the Independence celebrations, so what do they do for the foolish gullible Bajans, bring Rihanna, and all of our problem will go away, boy oh boy, this just like cornbeef and biscuits politics. Not me fah nuttin, i am not supporting this farce until i feel and Barbados feels as if we are going ahead and not backwards.

      Who are these bajans against the celebrations? Do you really believe that you can book Rihanna just like that?

    @ , Tricia M, hail , hail, on the button that’s how they treat bajans still as you say ,the corned beef biscuit and don’t forget the rum political attitude , which is still the way….
    We are suppose to be moving towards 50 years of so call ( Independence) (Dependency) but we are so far from being ready to take on the journey towards the 51st…..

    Yes, I hear you both. Rihanna is not to blame though and we should be delighted that someone as famous as her still has time for her country no matter what. The problems would still be there even if they had invited someone else. A change of government is what’s needed.

    Can you this excuse we have for a Prime Minister couldn’t find it possible to call a press conference and speak to the people respectfully on many serious issues that have been affecting them for sometime. Like (and the clowns can snt chime in) the laying FF of 100’s from NCC and taking 3 years to ay them against the laws of Barbados,the down grade, the increase in taxes, non payment of VAT and income tax, the garbage crisis, the water crisis, the transport issues, the problems with declining university numbers, none of these things that relate to both the quality of life and the standard of living of our people,not one word.
    He really has bajans class up as slown like him since they had pity and voted him a second term not considering how difficult the first term was for us. He got a second term and has disrespect even single mothers as recent as last week. He has the most intelligence in Barbados and his mother was the only light mate single mother ever. His intelligence has lead him to believe that if he makes bajans feel good for independence and fix a few bad roads over the next year and he comes and beg hard enough we so IGNORANT we will vote for this clown again. Bajans wake up,Bajans wake up,Bajans wake up… That’s all all I will say. Freundel Stuart does not have any more sense than any of us despite how this respectful,condescending.and uncaring man continues to show off ang try to create a holier than impression.

    Phil your comments about the radio personality at Starcom Nework are very unflattering and unfortunate. By the way, would any of these white frens qualify for miss universe? Those comments were not worth repeating. As responsible mature adults, we should know that name calling is a no no. When we do it, how do we tell our children and grandchildren not to do it?

    What comes out of us defines who we are, not who anyone else is!!!

    I am sure she is at a place in her life where these types of comments are like water on a duck’s back.
