The acceptance ceremony to officially recognize Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison by UNESCO was staged today (16/6/2012). It is a recognition all Barbadians should be proud, those concerned with preserving our history and recognizing the added value to our tourism product.
It is therefore unfortunate the opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) did not attend the ceremony, We have reached a period in our existence where how we practice politics in Barbados has become unacceptably divisive. This evening’s occasion is one where the political directorate needed to show the nation we are Barbadians first and political adversaries second.If we continue along the current path, to wear red, blue or yellow will become very problematic a la Jamaica. BUT it has already started!
