On a point of observation I could not help but notice the look on the face of the Finance Minister Mr .Chris Sinckler in a recent clip from the luncheon meeting held by the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which was held at the Barbados Hilton on the 25 January 2012 and aired on the CBC news the same night, and a pictured of the Minister in the Barbados Today News, page 41 25 January 2012 [see embedded image].
In my opinion it was a face of distraught, a look of someone lost in the forum which he was in at the time. Is this because for the first time in the last three years of the Democratic Labour Party’s governance of this country, the Prime Minister has taken the lead in his [Sinckler] Ministry by delivering his first address to the Member of Chamber? Is it a face of worry wondering what next, would it be the Estimates and then the Budget that he will deliver?
Well Minister Sinckler, maybe the PM has just decided to start dealing with the eleven MPs who allegedly sough an audience with him to discuss his leadership style, or is it that he has the feeling of his Ministers falling short of the mark lately?
First he had to find ways to get the teachers back to school at Alexandra School, which the Minister of Education could not do even after giving him all the support needed including providing him with a super pack to get the job done.
In addition the PM had to contend with you, Mr Minister, having the Prime Ministers of St. Vincent and Dominica denouncing any discussion with you or with any agency of your Ministry in-accordance with investments of their NIS funds in the Four Seasons Hotel Resort Project, and you Sir trying to clarify your position by stating you were speaking on the subject under correction as indicated in the Nation News Paper dated Friday January 20th 2012. This occurred in your address to the Barbados Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre as indicated in the Nation paper dated 11th January 2012.
Judging from the level of public outcry this did not sit well with educated Barbadian. In other words it was a poor excuse and you were surely misleading the country. But that’s not all Mr. Minister, after saying to this country in a recent debate that it was the bright young economist minds in your Ministry that put together the Medium Term Economic Program that this country is been run under, the IMF in the Barbados Today back page 19th January 2012 under the caption IMF Shots says that it is their prescription been followed by the Barbados government.
Tell us Mr. Minister why are you misleading this country? Guess the PM has had enough of it. Do you think you can get away with this Mr. Minister? BUT WE GOT YA.
