    God have mercy on Barbados which is being governed by the most incompetent group of people ever to hold political office in this country.Yet Sinckler would not resign and Stuart would not call elections.How much more can we take?

    Is this the price Barbadians have to pay for EGO?
    Where is the PRIME minister?

      No. It’s the price you pay when you are too timid to get out there in your numbers and make your demands known to all and sundry. elsewhere in the world thousand would be on the streets everyday.

    In Barbados the party does well when in Opposition criticizing.
    It has shown over and over again.
    All who play dominoes will know you always see all the shots while you are not sitting at the table.

    The government is at it’s wits end. They are like the starving dog which eats her pups in order to survive. Private sector is sucking the honeycomb dry.. and have no desire to produce honey locally. As long as government keeps folks employed I have to give them some support, cause sending home a couple thousand people right now will cause major suffering and still wont be enough to help us avoid the International Mine Field. (IMF) Private sector must step up in a big way.

      @Epaphras D. Williams; You would like to be employed and not getting a paycheck. Well I would employ plenty like you in a heart beat, have you check with CBC lately and ask them why they walk off the job a couple days ago? CBC of all places where the talk show hosts are their biggest defenders and sympathizers who condemns the Civil servants and the Unions for asking the government for a raise of pay which they have not had since they took office, 10 years now. If you`re not getting paid, you could as well stay at home.

    The MOF and the PM both said they didn’t care about rating agencies.

      @Jason Greenidge; earlier in the week people like you wanted to send that economist to hell because she said Barbados economy is in trouble, a couple days later S & P painted a very dismal picture of Barbados and now you`re attacking them too, well you and the others that accused people of Doom and Gloom could wait for a miracle, there`s nothing more to say because the PM, the MOFailure and the rest of the “16” don`t have a clue.

    Kicking the can down the road is what everone is doing. If S&P had any real integrity they would do the same to the much cherished USD. They are broke too. They defaulted back in the 70s. They just lucky they got oil in dollars and a printing press. Lets watch and see how the Fed will unwind 4.5 trill. Gonna be fun to watch

    Political action is gridlocked in Barbados, and the truth of the matter is that the DLP is merely prolonging the inevitable, viz: devaluation.
