Formerly humorous Barbadian Blogger gets serious – Attacks West Coast Development and launches petition

Kool Barbados has been doing a lot in a short time, from wry looks at the Middle East from a non-Israeli perspective – on its sister site Baruba Post, on their own site? KB has taken askew glimpses of of popular alleged visitors and a campaign on American Idol’s favorite villain…

Then, out of the blue, something which appears to be completely different to paraphrase Monty Python’s opening credits;-

?We the residents of Checker Hall, Half Moon Fort, Shermans, Maynards, Mile and a Quarter and Six Mens urgently request that the nasty gash through our beach be filled-in and the beach restored to its original condition. Until the dredgers came to rape our beach, we, from the region north of Port St. Charles, were able to walk the beach from Half Moon Fort to Speightstown and back without hindrance.

?Now we?re forced to walk around the Port St. Charles gated compound on the highway to get to Speightstown. And if we try to walk onto the small slither of beach between the bridge and the channel (also seen clearly above) we are often accosted by uniformed security personnel with fierce dogs. Trying to keep the beach private for PSC residents and visitors.

?This is no idle matter. When Port St. Charles was built we were told it was for the good of the island. Now we know it was only for the good of a few already wealthy investors. Through the building of Port St. Charles all the people of Barbados alive today and those as yet unborn have suffered tremendously.

For the rest of the tale you must check Kool Barbados!
