The Nation’s Associate Editor, Sherie Holder-Olutayo takes a look at what’s trending today in Barbados.
Today’s front page story on contractor Al Barrack has our online readers buzzing. Many of them have expressed disbelief that he has not been paid any of the money that he has been awarded, especially after finding a buyer. Here are some of their comments.
James Wlkinson: I often wondered if Al Barrack had a name like "Cow Williams" if government would hold back his money.
Kenneth King: I'm really sorry for Mr. Barrack and not receiving his due money owed. However as I read about the former Prime Minister arguing about helping out REDjet while his government did not close the deal they made with Mr. Barrack leaving an open bill now of 75 million which must be paid by the tax payers of this country. The Government does not have that money at this time to pay in a big sum but I will suggest that we make some sort of deposit before it gets worst. I respect our governments when they try their best to balance out economy but what I can't take is wasting tax payers hard earn money on projects that are not of significance because it's sitting in our Central Bank. They tell us to cut our spending but by example this is not shown in their management.
Angela J. Thomas Branch: Another broken promise.
Africat Charms: Wait! He ain't get back he money yet? Well well, well smh. I thought he get back he money and gone for a cruise but like they cruising with he.
Wayne T. Griffith: He will probably get the money in the upcoming budget. After all, elections are around the corner.
Devaron Bruce: But going seven years is a long time though, too long.
