The Soviet Union of the United States of America

Submitted by Nathan ‘Jolly’ Green Let there be no doubts whatsoever the United States of America is on the slippery slope of becoming ruled initially by Democrat encouraged anarchists then becoming a real Soviet-style Communist Country.

Is Ralph Gonsalves an Honorary Member of the Cuban Communist Party?

Submitted by Nathan ‘Jolly’ Green Watch out Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Gonsalves got you in the doodoo again. By using Cubans to build our airport at Argyle, to develop and man the specialist hospital at Georgetown, and to bring the unnecessary Cuban doctors and nurses to manage our COVID 19 situation, the US will punish us, some think rightly

A Time for Choosing

The following was submitted to traditional media and Barbados Underground by Khaleel – David, Blogmaster Like most Barbadians, I have not been tempted to engage with the debacle surrounding the statue of Lord Nelson. Many of us realize that, instead, now is the time to look toward meaningful change for people and address burning problems in this country.  The inequitable

Is Bridgetown Dying?

Submitted by Roslyn Stanherd The haphazard approach to the ‘development’ of Bridgetown has robbed it, not only of character but of foot traffic. Too often landmarks/enterprises are closed without the certainty of a replacement. The Waterfront Café which closed in March is a classic example.

Beware the Trojan Horse @Ministry of Education

  One of the many observations made about the “useless” Auditor General reports is that the obvious corruption exposed private sector players to have been involved in questionable government contracts.
