Yes Minister, but please tell the truth about the Pierhead Marina Project.
Can you believe anything the Minister of Finance said yesterday on Brass Tacks?
No you cannot because the Minister of Finance is a stranger to the truth. A bullshit artist from beginning to end, a man determined to lie his way through politics in Barbados. A man who is all show and little or no substance, a man who has, by himself, destroyed the confidence the people of Barbados place in the office of the Minster of Finance and Economic Affairs.
Take the Pierhead Marina as an example. The Minister said categorically yesterday that the Pierhead Marina project is proceeding but he conveniently forget to tell the people of Barbados that he, as Minister of Finance, brought a Cabinet Paper to Cabinet a few weeks ago making a number of recommendations, including:
The contract with SMI be terminated immediately
The Pierhead Marina project be suspended until the Barbados economy was not in a recession.
