Our West Indian Cricket Shame Only Deepens

How  shameful  it was to witness the gleeful rejoicing of the members of the West Indies cricket team in the wake of their fortuitous and totally undeserved victory over Scotland — a non- test status, associate member team of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

A Heather Cole Column – Beyond the Boundary

Cricket! Glorious cricket! CLR James wrote a book entitled ‘Beyond a Boundary in 1966.’ It was a book that describes cricket as the mirror image of what happened in West Indian Societies. So much so that it is the best medium for explaining anything that happens in our lives across the wide spectrum from politics […]

The Adrian Loveridge Column – We Can Do Better!

From my very early days in the tourism industry I have never really thought that there was anything overly complicated about the sector which necessitated even remote levels of rocket science. But there are just some people in key decision making roles, who simply do not understand what it takes to function properly. Having just […]

The Jeff Cumberbatch Column – Absurdity-at-Law II

Last week’s first installment of this essay dealt in part with the immediately undecipherable and hitherto undeclared mischief behind the draconian criminalization of the cultural practice locally, and in many places elsewhere, of riding a bicycle on a road or a highway, without, according to Regulation 117A (1), “wearing a bicycle helmet” [not otherwise defined, […]

Waiting for the Bell to be Rung

Every where one turns in Barbados the discussion is about when will the prime minister ring the bell.

The Grenville Phillips Column – Be Careful What You Wish For

Our financial professionals are warning us to prepare for the bitterest of medicine for at least the next 5 years.  They recommend that we go cap-in-hand to either China or the International Monetary Fund (IMF). We are already being indebted to China, and the details of those loans are being kept secret.  Secret dealings rarely […]
