Is Chief Town Planner Blocking BLACKman’s Fight for Justice @Clarke’s Road?
One comment posted to the Nation newspaper Online edition (see below) summarizes the plight of Arden Blackman from Clark’s Road, St. James. The story of Arden Blackman has been ventilated on Barbados Underground, Facebook and there was a piece done by Roy Morris before he was fired by the Nation newspaper.
It boggles the mind that a government elected to serve its citizens would allow an ex-pat by the name of Pat Brayshaw to break the law with the potential to cause harm to residents of the blue collar district of Clarke’s Road.
The blogmaster is tempted to include what quickly comes to mind- if this had occurred in Fort George or one of the built up neighbourhoods the member of parliament would have intervened to expedite the matter in 2003/4 when it first surfaced. There was a time a more militant blogmaster would have pulled the race card by asking why a White foreign woman is allowed to brazenly break the law in a majority Black Rh country.
The comment below appears to have been posted to Nation news by Phillip Tudor a senior official at the Ministry of Transport. The time has come to give Mr. Blackman some justice Town Planner Browne, Kerri Symmonds and local authorities. If what is posted is the reason that prevented the closure of this matter, we weep for our country.
