Submitted by The People’s Democratic Congress (PDC)
Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France identified Barbados as a tax haven
A resounding “NO WAY” to citizens voting for economists running as candidates in any of the next constituency elections in this country – is the central theme of a commentary that the PDC has done, and that it was on the verge of submitting to BU for publication as this week’s PDC article.
But, that particular commentary (has) had to be stood down until the next PDC installment, primarily because this present submission which the reader is reading now, as this weeks PDC article – seeks to somewhat describe and explain – a far more timely and exacting fundamental matter – why Barbados will continue on a path of becoming a second rate Third World developing country within the next 10-15 years, taking more and more orders from people like the OECD, if the BLP and DLP are NOT within the next 6 years electorally removed from the Parliament of this country for ever.
Already, BLP and DLP governments have failed to lead the way in repositioning Barbados in a manner and state that sees the country benefiting, materially, financially, politically, etc. from the extant shifting of the balance of power in international relations from the West to the East (a situation that the West can do little about on its own).
Africa has haplessly watched the insanity of NATO in Libya, the AU has passively watched French and English military jets being used as the air force for the rag tag rebels in Libya, and today Africa listens attentively as Westerners say they want to bring humanitarian aid to Libya, a country that owes no debt to anyone, a country whose US$70 billion has been illegally confiscated by Western powers, indeed a country that has been the AU’s major funder for years.
This writer broke in tears listening to a rebel in Libya saying “we built this entire infrastructure with Gaddafi, and we will build it again. We are capable of building our country.” He had been asked by a journalist why he was wantonly shooting at buildings and smashing windows. To me this was a sad sight of a young African being spirited back to colonial domination, being used by Western powers to destroy what took forty years for Libya to build, and totally lacking consciousness over the meaning of national independence.
We have a sad reality where the destructive acts of Libyan rebels are celebrated as freedom fighting; while we are told to ignore the threat the continent is facing by allowing Western war planes to rampage our cities at will. I feel so powerless to stop it, yet so powerful to fight it all. This is a time when one feels like doing anything possible to hit back, anything thinkable or imaginable. This aggression by Westerners can be for long but it won’t be forever. The current African Union is a bunch of cowardly bucolic boofheads totally mesmerised by Western donor funding. They look pretty scared as they seem all determined to avoid angering the Westerners. What an unthinking lot of hopeless traitors!
