Sir Roy’s call

Sir Roy’s call Sir Roy Trotman. (FP)

The Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) has called on Government to implement immediate initiatives which would stimulate business while improving Barbados’ image as a place in which to invest.

Speaking yesterday at a news conference at Solidarity House, BWU general secretary Sir Roy Trotman said the “stated policies” of the Freundel Stuart administration to deal with the economic crisis facing Barbados “are much too ‘iffy’ for our comfort”.

He was at the time speaking about the recent downgrade by the international credit rating agency Moody’s.

He said the downgrade was of major concern but added that “what we cannot afford to do is to close our minds and surrender our judgement to any of the self-seeking gurus who seem hell bent on twisting the evidence which is before us . . .”.

In 24 hours we see if America goes over the cliff and then we all follow suit.If the biggest economy in the world is in a mess what say Barbados? Clyde Mascoll,Owen Arthur and Chris Sinckler none of them went to Harvard.I also doubt very much anyone of them could even have met the entry requirements.
