Of luxury cars and leaders of our unions

Of luxury cars and leaders of our unions

It is an age-old tactic used with telling effect sometimes to discredit and neutralize critics who are either causing discomfort for politicians, or have considerable clout to influence significant blocs of voters to act in ways detrimental to the interests of these politicians and the parties they represent. The tactic involves taking a sensitive issue, […]

A future made by hands of love and care

A future made by hands of love and care

As Child Month –– and, by extension, Family Month –– grinds to an end, few other features of the period would have been as reflective of profound caring of the child, and satisfying of the family, as that which manifested itself in the planned and executed hearing of the formerly impaired two-year-old J’dae Prescott-Griffith. On […]

Rotten apples we can well do without!

Rotten apples we can well do without!

Vice president of the Human Resource Management Association of Barbados, Donna Hope, made several insightful points yesterday at the launch of a World Of Work Showcase slated for June 20.

Facts at times just cannot be ignored

Facts at times just cannot be ignored

In an inherently conservative country such as Barbados where people generally display an automatic tendency to resist, as an emotional response, any issue that raises the idea of change, the decriminalization of marijuana is, admittedly, a touchy subject. Emotions can have such a powerful impact on human behaviour that in adopting this approach, persons hardly […]

Getting one’s retaliation in first to win?

The story of the British and Irish Lions’ 1974 rugby tour of South Africa is a fascinating one. It was one of the most controversial outings, as 32 amateurs made up of teachers, a doctor, a member of the Royal Air Force, a steelworker, a solicitor, a banker and farmers set out to challenge one […]

Thankfully, the longest day has an end

Thankfully, the longest day has an end

It seems, at long last, that the ailing Barbados economy is starting to recover from what easily has been the longest period of combined decline and stagnation in the island’s 50 year history as a sovereign, independent nation. Verification by an independent, reputable and authoritative source of what the Government and Central Bank have been […]

Abusers of the old must feel court’s wrath!

Abusers of the old must feel court’s wrath!

Vile is not often used to describe things in Barbados. In fact, for the most part, it is reserved for abominable acts such as that we witnessed in horror making the rounds on social media this week The scenes of abuse in the video showing a helpless 84-year-old being kicked, beaten and insulted triggered rage […]

A royal mess in this our 50th year

A royal mess in this our 50th year

Recent rumblings within the legal fraternity have once again highlighted another aspect of the unfortunate state to which the judicial system in Barbados has seemingly descended. Notwithstanding the frequent berating which our judiciary receives from the Caribbean Court of Justice, daily occurrences suggest that the morass which tended to relate mainly to systemic sloth, has […]

Bad timing reinstating MPs’ 10%

Bad timing reinstating MPs’ 10%

In politics, as in the waging of war, timing is always of the essence. Choose the right time and you hold in your hands a passport to almost certain victory. Choose the wrong, and you find yourself with a passport to almost certain defeat. “Nothing ever happens before its time”, the saying goes. The real […]
