Transport Board Video Resurfaces With a Twist
There is a widely held view that the ‘Transport Board’ video played a significant part in the return to office of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP). Informed political pundits suggest it was one of many events that worked in the favour of the DLP government. Of course there was the now famous second poll by Peter Wickham of CADRES. What we know for sure is that current events have given lie to what was broadcast in the video and endorsed by the DLP reported to have been produced by the personal aid to the late Prime Minister David Thompson.
It appears that Barbados Labour Party (BLP) sympathizers have responded to the fact it was outmaneuvered by the DLP in 2013 and floated what BU now describes as an Oped Video. The General Manager of the Transport Board (TB) Sandra Forde was forced to issue a statement disassociating the TB from the video and shared that the bus seen in the video was rented.
Why has BU reposted the videos?
There is a propaganda war members of the political class will unleash in force on the public in the months ahead. In fact some will agree it has already started. Will the majority of Barbadians demonstrate the intelligence to be able to withstand the onslaught? The BU household has serious doubt.
