    Our Royal Barbados Mounted Police horses should be glistening with equestrian sheen., their tails flowing with reflection from a brilliant sunshine we wish; their cords lilly white and gartered socks like snow covered mountain tops. Lances with ribbons draped as the mountee holds them with white gloves port armed. The captain’s white horse draped with the national colours and he wearing the coat of arms sashe and officer’s sabre. May the day be blessed with law and order.

    To Helicopter(8P) :

    I see that you are still hovering on the Planet Mars in your ‘copter ! ! !

    When the aliens on Mars are finished performing the medical operation of replacing the ” air bag ” between your ears with a ” brain ” , then you should try returning to Planet Earth .

    Oh , and BTW . . . . have a safe flight back to Earth.

    Irrespective of party politics our island nation must continue to perform the few ceremonial occasions to an outstanding quality. For these are the only occasions when drill and discipline are truly exhibited especially to the young.

    Let’s embrace the new GG with the pompt and pageantry afforded to the high office. Whilst in parallel, continue to keep the South Coast sewage matter high on the publicity agenda. Recent coverage by Barbados Today has been excellent.

    As for Lord Admiral Nelson. Well in due time his statue will be replaced/relocated. The Lord, not Lord Nelson’ has been the people’s guide for the past 3 hundred years…
    …with him on the people’s side
    …we have no doubt or fears..
    .. upwards and onwards we shall go…

    Take pride in the nation, take responsibility for your own actions whether minister or Joe Public.
