A Grenville Phillips Column – Lunacy

Jo-Ann Haigh

She was the most visible demonstration of rare competence during the last DLP administration. Despite everything falling around her (low water pressure, water outages, water leaks, sewage in the streets, etc), she made us feel that the BWA truly cared and were trying their best.

She appeared to single-handedly manage two national crises that were not improving, but getting worse. Yet she performed to a level of excellence that is not normal in the public or private sector of any country on this planet. As Communications Manager, she seemed to be on call 24/7/365 and consistently on point – an impressive level of commitment.

Most persons appear to receive national honours for doing work for which they were already paid to do. If there was ever an exemplar of a person who went far beyond the call of duty in putting Barbados first, and the needs of Barbadians over her own, it was Joy-Ann Haigh. For her demonstrated consistent level of excellence, she was deservedly given Combermere School’s alumni’s Flame Award, normally reserved for persons after a career of exemplary service.

Joy-Ann Haigh was the BWA’s most valuable resource, without doubt. Therefore, it took a special level of lunatic management to place her name on a lay-off list, and incompetence of the highest order to actually send her home.

If such a critically important post is being made redundant as reported, then we have the rare misfortune of witnessing, within the BWA, a demonstration of the next psychological state after madness, whatever that happens to be. We were told to simply elect and watch, well, watch on with dismay.

    The Worthing beach closures should have sent such a message six months ago
    Next would be the total collapse of the sanctuary enviroment which would cost the taxpayers millions of dollars to clean up and replace the necessary growth and nutrients that are essential to plant and animal life an eco system that is necessary and important to human survival

    “If we can employ all these foreigners”

    Any smart lead knows that is it wise to use the talent of the emigrate to improve the standard of living of a country … some of the most gifted and talented people are emigrates because they come with a passion and desire to improve their lives, and this burning passion and desire brings out the best they have to offer their adopted country…
    American leaders have been good at identifying the talent of the emigrate and employing in such away as to build the country, but an educated xenophobic … intellectual arrogant and an egotistical narcissist like GP … with all his wisdom and knowledge isn’t wise enough to comprehend this fact.

    BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — JOY-ANN HAIGH — Naked, here is Joy-Ann Haigh and David Estwick, at Hoodies, talking out there all by their lonesome, in the dark. This photo was taken the same night she was fired from the Water Authority — she is even wearing the same clothes.

    Naked, David Estwick kept promoting her while she was at the BWA and giving her big money. Now, we all wonder, what will he do for her? Wuk fah wuk ain’t no joke! Estwick better come up with a plan soon, if he expects to keep on tapping that tukalacka. Anonymous
