Series two: “DLP’s Time-Wasting Sequel” Parliament: Next Tuesday, 4:00 pm
It would seem that the result of the recently conducted poll – serves our DLP Government notice that: “its’ dangerous mismanagement of the Barbados economy” and its ‘willingness to hold Barbadians taxpayers hostage and punish them with increased taxes,’ each time the DLP gets it wrong – has consequences and will no longer be tolerated.
The honeymoon is long over and a bitter winter with the DLP would be guaranteed.
If dumping the DLP is what is required to save Barbados – then that is far preferable to waiting until our country is downgraded to junk-bond-status or finds itself again in the hip-pocket of the IMF.
I keep hearing the surprising argument that despite a US downgrade, United States’ bonds and stocks are being gobbled-up. I would think that the reason for this is very simple. It has to do with protecting your country’s domestic interest.
In this regard, China might even buy more US debt – adding to the some $2 trillion it already owns – as oppose to ‘selling what,’ or even ‘any of what’ it now owns. The simple reason is that – the more dollars China sells on the market, the US dollar will fall. “For China, that would mean that the Chinese currency, for example, would then become more expensive, making Chinese exports more expensive on the world market.
This is what you call: ‘a government, acting in its country’s national strategic interest.’ It would seem that the Chinese, like other countries – are extremely concerned about their exports becoming more expensive, which would have implications for economic growth within their respective countries and also, implications for domestic employment.” This shows the folly of: “the DLP’s hard-line; iron-fist, inhumane immigration policy of ‘willy-nilly’ deporting people from Guyana and the OECS,” many, whose only crime is, that they were the victim of Barbados’ lapsed immigration policy.
The OECS was Barbados oyster, buying some 52% of our exports. Secondly, it did not occur to the DLP that Barbadian Agriculture needs immigrant labour from Guyana and the OECS, hence the need for harmony between our country’s immigration policy and its agriculture policy. And the DLP talks about ‘food security!’ This is another example of a long list of reasons why the DLP was shown: “The RED CARD,” in a recent poll. It is further proof that next Tuesday’s exercise at 4:00 p.m., in Parliament – will be series two of the DLP’s: time-wasting sequel.
