WANTED

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.  Expect: long working hours, vicious personal criticisms, no pay, a slim chance of being elected, and an exciting journey.

  1. I read, with interest, your document and applaud the sentiment. I was fortunate enough to have lived in Barbados in the 1970’s during which time I was a teacher at Queen’s College. It was a wonderful country with “old fashioned values” and a place in which I felt very comfortable and welcomed. On my return for vacation in 2003 I found a very different situation. I will not go into detail as the current political and social environment in Barbados has been widely published.

    Your party has obviously recognised that something needs to be done in order to return Barbados to its previous values, albeit with the caveat of taking into consideration the needs of modern society. From my point of view what is missing is a budget. So my question is, “how are you planning to fund and manage the recommendations you have outlined?” I would like to see the “numbers”. Sincerely, David Barrett.

    • Dear David:

      With respect to the numbers, please note that most of what we are proposing will either not cost any money or will save money when compared to existing expenditure, as noted below.

      1. Improving Governance – Net saving.

      2. Improving the Regulatory System – Net saving.

      3. Improving the Criminal Justice System – Net significant saving.

      4. Improving Government Procurement – Net significant saving.

      5. Improving Education – Net saving.

      6. Improving Transportation – Net significant saving.

      7. Improving Health Care – Net saving.

      8. Improving Welfare – Net saving.

      9. Improving Business Development – Net increase. However, typical large capital cost will be avoided by allowing the existing post offices around Barbados to offer development banking services.

      10 Improving Taxation – Net saving, since reducing tax rates has normally resulted in increased revenues in Barbados.

      11 Improving Agriculture – Net saving from fines.

      12 Improving Infrastructure – Net balance.

      Best regards,
      Grenville
