    With the recent location of the Lord Nelson statue to the museum, there is now a need for us to look to the future. Barbados has an illustrious history that boasts of our 96% education achievement along with our prowess in sports, especially cricket. I would like to recommend a replacement who fits the bill […]

  3. Difficult Conversations, Part 2 – When Truth is the Enemy

    During our lifetimes, we will likely care about things enough to do something about them. We may feel compelled to speak, write, march, or simply stand with those doing so. That is activism, and the aim is to influence our elected politicians to change government policies. There are two types of activists. There are those […]

  4. “Denny, Nelson, and the Dishonourables” by Grenville Phillips II

    Yesterday (Sat 22 Aug 2020), David Denny led a protest against Nelson’s statue. I promised Adrian Green that I would join Denny, if anyone could provide any credible evidence supporting the claims made against Nelson. No one did. I have repeatedly stated that if Nelson is really this evil racist enslaver, and white-supremacist mass-murder of […]

  6. Solutions Barbados: “Nelson The Astronaut”

    There is more evidence to support the claim that Nelson built a space shuttle, went into Earth’s orbit and brought back the cow that jumped over the moon, than for Nelson being a racist white supremacist mass-murderer. In both claims, history would need to be invented. Nelson modifying his ships to improve their performance during […]

  7. “Nelson to be Moved” by Grenville Phillips II

    Government decided that Nelson’s statue should be moved – based on thoroughly discredited information. The Government has chosen to believe false claims that Nelson was a racist, white supremacist mass-murderer. There is no credible evidence supporting the reckless accusations by our historians and political activists. The Government now wants to know where to put the […]

  8. “Follow Pattern” by Dr Victor H. Eastmond, GCM (Different Stance on Nelson Statue)

    I would like to join the debate pertaining to Admiral Nelson’s statue located in Bridgetown, Barbados. I am aware that this debate followed the “Black Lives Matter” demonstrations with which I fully empathize but today, it has mushroomed into other areas such as toppling/removal of statues and racial equity. I would like to only focus […]
