Thank you for visiting, and welcome.
We are a group of men and women who love Barbados, treasure our reputations, and plan to offer ourselves as candidates in the next general election in order to give Barbadians a competent alternative. While we have twenty-five candidates, we need five more – hence, the following.
Accomplished men and women of demonstrated integrity and leadership, who love Barbados, treasure their reputations, and are willing to present themselves as candidates in the next general election in order to give Barbadians a competent alternative. Prospective candidates must not view politics as a career, but as a brief time of exemplary national service.
If you love Barbados, acknowledge the guidance of God, and have demonstrated competence in any area, then we want you and Barbados needs you. We would like you to consider being a Solutions Barbados candidate in the upcoming general election, to finally give voters a competent alternative to those who have brought us to the brink of economic ruin.
The door is now open to you – send me a message.

At the time of our independence, we had a merit based well-managed civil service, and were perhaps the most likely of all nations to succeed. We then squandered that legacy by politicizing our civil service, resulting in the typically poor-managed services to which we must learn to adapt. After decades of lobbying for improvements, it has become clear that lobbying is the most ineffective method for change for those not politically connected. Therefore, we have developed workable solutions and are assembling a group of 30 leaders to implement them after the next general election.
We started Solutions Barbados and published this site on 1 July 2015. A summary of our main solutions is described on our Policy Solutions page. They are designed to address the main problems hindering Barbados’, and therefore your development. You are encouraged to comment, and we will happily engage you in discussions of how they may be improved. The improved solutions will become our promises to you. Our weekly column in Barbados Today, solutions to topical issues and notices about public events are provided on our Blogs and Notices page.
Our Guiding Principle
Our guiding principle is to provide an environment where all Barbadian citizens and residents can become healthy, prosperous and educated if they choose to. Our Solutions are designed to accomplish this.
Current Main Political Parties
Despite their failings, we should count ourselves very fortunate that we have been led by persons who seemed to genuinely care about Barbados. Therefore, both political parties should be thanked for their past service. However, we should be under no illusion that it takes any special competence to spend borrowed money. As a country, we are very deep in debt, and useful unsolicited advice appears to have been ignored as we plan to go further into debt.
One political leader recently revealed that only those in the political trenches had the right to have their advice on national issues considered. Since we do not plan to stop offering unsolicited advice, and we have no desire to engage in futile exercises, then we have no choice but to reluctantly enter the political trench. If the Government or Opposition parties follow our advice, then we will leave the trench as quickly as we entered it – the choice is theirs.
The greatest obstacle to improvement lies within you, the reader – the voter. This obstacle is the fear of change. People would rather stay with what they know, regardless of how incompetent, than with what they do not know. Hopefully, after reading our Policy Solutions, you will at least know what we support, and to what we object.
It has been said that good managers try to do their best with the resources available to them, while leaders change the environment to allow for better management. We intend to lead.
