A welcome word from Dr Lowe

After disappearing from the public spotlight since the start of June, it was pleasing to hear the Minister of the Environment and Drainage back in the news yesterday, even if it was only to clear the air on the operations of the Sustainable Barbados Recycling Centre (SBRC). On that occasion, Dr Lowe did not hold [...]

Festival lessons for the learning

With all the trouble that has been brewing in the Barbados Labour Party camp of late, some folks have been heard to say, and not in the most hushed of tones, though clearly in jest, that “there are two Kadooments in town –– the BLP’s and Crop Over’s”. This is not to take away anything [...]

Ms Mottley’s back against the wall?

Two recents statements by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart this past weekend are worthy of public record. The first was in reaction to Owen Arthur’s sudden resignation from the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), and the next to the BLP Leader Mia Mottley’s “white march” last Thursday. For Mr Stuart, Mr Arthur’s resignation from the Opposition Barbados [...]

When Owen Arthur dared to march all alone

The time must come when Barbados’ waste disposal management must be dealt with strictly along apolitical lines. To politicize the issue and divide the country along party lines will do nothing to address a serious situation that has the potential to get worse before it gets better. The simple fact is that if Barbadians generate [...]

Bajans are in a mood for answers

On a day when scores of Opposition demonstrators took to the streets wearing white in an appeal for economic salvation from a burdensome tax, more than the estimated 3,000 plus were in the mood for answers. As political activist David Comissiong rightly said yesterday, there is a general feeling in Barbados right now, today’s march [...]

Time to take action, Mr Minister

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. –– Mark 12:17.   Margaret Sivers and her team at the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) must be smiling all the way to the bank, or so it would only appear, given the current slew of taxes which we all [...]

When the silence is not golden

Defiant action is gaining momentum in the quiet, rural parish of St John, as the future of one of its historic landmarks languishes in doubt. The 219-year old Society Primary School, which was bequeathed to the island by Christopher Codrington, along with Codrington College and The Lodge School, was closed by the Ministry of Education [...]

To repeal or not to repeal

“If it is me alone, I shall walk!”   With this bold declaration Opposition Leader Mia Mottley is already lacing up her marching shoes and preparing to make a “B-line” straight for Government Headquarters this Thursday. Her stated mission is to secure a repeal of the controversial Municipal Solid Waste Tax, which Ms Mottley suggests [...]

The voice of the people is the Voice of God

The week would have ended much better than it started for some taxpayers, who no doubt would have welcomed the newly announced Municipal Solid Waste Tax ease. We refer here specifically to those senior citizens who own small properties, including a few derelicts, with an improved value of $190 000 or less. Owners of agricultural [...]
