JOKE OF THE DAY: BARBADOS’ PM SAYS CONCRETE ACTION NEEDED FROM SUMMIT, WHERE IS HIS?

So they’re trying to silence the truth? Legislation for the bloggers? You mean to tell me that they don’t have more pressing matters to deal with? What about the integrity legislation? That needs putting in place, but that would lock up half of them. What about dealing with trigger happy police robbing families of their love ones? What about the economy? Don’t those downgrades concern you? What about the illegal guns on the streets that every johnny that listens to Vybz Kartel feels he is a badman walking about with one? What about these illegal scramblers on the road with the c**ts pulling wheelies through broad street daily? What about the failing sugar industry that going somehow miraculously do even better next year? What about the tourist industry that wanna does pump millions of dollars into and it only benefits the 1% in Barbados? What about women on maternity leave waiting on their cheques, or the unemployed people wanna laid off and can’t pay them their monies? What about my tax returns? What about these huge f**king potholes that my road taxes should be fixing? What about giving the Clico policy holders justice instead of bulls**t? What about the failed Caricom agreement that doesn’t benefit Barbados in no way? What about the shite gas wanna keep buying from Trinidad at extortionist rates? What about the meds and equipment needed by the hospital to give good health care? What about the money wanna propping up Liat with and to travel regionally just as expensive as international travel? What about the destruction of the free education model that helped made most of you all qualified lawyers and doctors? What about the brazen nepotism by you all, putting square pegs in round holes and sending home good decent hardworking people to suffer?

If you all would put the same amount of effort into fixing the sh*t I mentioned above that you are putting in to silence the bloggers in Barbados… We wouldn’t have one f**k to blog about!

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is hopeful that coming out of the CARICOM-US Summit, concrete action will be taken, so that the people of the region can “feel the effects of the relationship between the Caribbean and the United States of America“.

(EDITOR’S NOTE – We hope same Stuart will put as much effort as Dr Timothy Harris of St Kitts who pledges to have a monthly press conference and Premier of Nevis Vance Amory who explains where he travelled and why, yet taking a $70,000.00 EC annual pay cut to be repaid into their treasury)

Mr. Stuart made this comment ahead of the start of the Summit, which got under way in Kingston, Jamaica today. At the meeting, CARICOM Heads of Government and President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, are expected to discuss critical issues of interest to the two sides, including competitiveness.

Insisting that the region was not looking to larger countries like the United States to "do for us what we can do for ourselves", the Prime Minister, however, stated that as small island developing states, the nations of the Caribbean faced challenges which "had much to do with the economic and political behaviour" of countries in the North Atlantic.

I think the time has come for us to say exactly how we feel about some of these things, very respectfully of course. I do not think we can continue to meet for photo opportunities, when in fact the people of the Caribbean are looking on, expecting concrete results from encounters, such as that which we are going to have with President Obama,” he contended.

Pointing out that the region had a diaspora in the United States that contributed significantly to the development of that country, Mr. Stuart stated that he hoped that President Obama saw the need for his country “to do a little more” for the people of the Caribbean.

“If nothing more comes out of the meeting, [we would wish] a commitment on the part of the Unites States to sit with us for a much longer period than we are scheduled to sit [on Thursday] to talk through our challenges, not in a way that puts the US in any position of verticality in relation to the people of the Caribbean, but in a relationship based on horizontality,” the PM with barely any Press Conferences said.
