    I keep saying this place will not get any better. Things are ripe.

    I’m reading that 13 people have been shot. This is a sad moment for Barbados. Our business is tourism. Does anyone think that this will not hit the news in Great Britain, Canada and the US? This could cripple us. We need to look at Kadooment and how it is run. This does great harm to us.

    This is very very sad. My sympathy to the relatives and friends of the victim.

    While I do agree with you, why does our Foreign affairs ministry no issue travel advisories to our nationals travelling to Britain, France, the US, Jamaica, Trinidad or other countries with high risks?

    Are our nationals not visitors spending foreign currency when we travel too? Some of us keep behaving as though our visitors live in the promised land, and we live in the wilderness. I really do think it’s the opposite. Those countries need our money as much as we need theirs, our money creates employment for them as well. From the Airline staff, to the sales people in the stores where we shop.@John Everatt

    Even the promise land got endless gun fire and bombings daily. And I bet no one can say why. Any quiet Barbados is done. This is what happens when you take a tree and bark it.

    The AG said he was very concern about the 2 young “ladies” that one stab the other . First he must look into the constant reports of “these young girls keep going missing” and not a word from him. On top of that we get the “cassette tape play from the RBPF” , person (a) has been found, thanks to the public”……end of story.
