UPDATED: Barbadian designer thinks two Lottery presenters have room for improvement – Blogger regains temper and looks at issue not idle speculation

Sorry for taking so long to update, had a very busy week – Facebook is incredible, as I mentioned back in September – it was via this internet social network tool that Surfer’s Cafe promoted a comedy show and used no newspaper advertising and had the event sold out!Separate to this, in Heat Magazine I have seen Kingsley Thorne at war with Clairmonte Grazette over who has the oldest model agency, he also hosted Fashion Police there and did some ratings on various personalities, word reached the Barbadian blogosphere, and ex-Madd man Peter Boyce was annoyed when he wasn’t included – well, he finally made the grade, probably as he helps to promote Thorne.

Yet, apart from that, as we all know I present Lottery but it’s my aim to please the owners, not Kingsley, right? Yet he chooses to display the following on Facebook, granted this wannabe Blackwell has the right to share his views, but he should expect responses (Thorne had so many typos I had to correct, someone really needs to show him the Spell-Check button) –

Now, let’s get this straight, I appreciate his right to speak out but he has to remember – I also can deliver my own opinion! In addition, for the most part I do Double Draw, it’s on Saturdays at lunchtime therefore I wear a plain tee-shirt and slacks under a navy blazer. It’s only on a few occasions where I hosted Mega 6 and would use my Mandarin suit, so if he’s gonna critique, understand not only the circumstances but also the whole nature of the product!

But I mean really, what is so special about Kingsley Thorne anyway? Ladies, would you be caught dead in THIS outfit?

  3. Most “Dunciest” Baseless Waste of Internet Time and Text: Kingsley Thorne Review parts 1 and 2.
    He should have his own show. Barbados’ Next Top Adult Education Student. The premise of the show: ‘duncy’ people over the hill sit down and try to outwit each other at such challenging things as;
    Subject and Verb agreement
    Conjugation etc.
    I take personal offence that my blog wasn’t even mentioned in his tirade, then again, there may be a part 3.
