Difficult Conversations – Mene, mene
Submitted by Grenville Phillips, President of Solutions Barbados
The word among those who claim to know, is that the BLP will win a sizable majority on Wednesday’s Election Day. Across Barbados, there is a sea of red posters that appear to support that view.
The established media are playing their normal role by suggesting that a BLP result is obvious, and the only unknown is how little the number of successful DLP candidates will be. I am hearing different words. They start like this.
Mene: By forcing Barbados into a Republic, without the peoples’ consent, the BLP administration has come to an end.
Tekel: By formally establishing thrones over Barbados for every demon under heaven, the BLP administration has been weighed in the balances and found wanting.
Peres: For discriminatingly dividing Barbadians into vaccinated and unvaccinated people, the new Government will be a coalition of several political parties – that will have to learn to work together.
The BLP administration started in the most excellent manner. They promised Barbadians that all ideas must contend. So impressed were we by this refreshing promise of leadership, that we laid our political swords at the feet of our political competitors.
We made ourselves available to be deployed to fight the enemies of Barbados outside of a general election season.
The BLP’s promise of allowing all ideas to contend would consistently be broken. That resulted in a absence of any balance, to the worst possible economic advice that the BLP continually received – and tragically for us, accepted.
