The Nation’s Associate Editor, Sherie Holder-Olutayo takes a look at what’s trending today in Barbados.
The story that has our online readers talking today is Inniss, Mia clash on ‘education cut’ in today’s Weekend Nation. The two politicians were caught in a heated debate in the House of Assembly. Here’s what some of our online readers had to say.
Kenneth King: I would like the Barbados Labour Party to stop changing our system each time they are back in Government. We have a special system of education and health standard, why would a politician want to cut on education or health benefits in this country. They are paid so much money from hard working tax payers of this country with all the best medical benefits there is to offer and will fight to deprive others from becoming what has been fought for by our father of Independence that no one should suffer or deny the rights to a free education. I cannot understand why we keep following the American system that is breaking them because of their lack of care and the medical system, that only cares for profits, be it doctors or the insurance companies. Instead of fighting for our cause we seem to be copying systems that would only cause more hardship to this country.
David Hall: Inniss is catching at straws. Anything to distract from the latest poll.
Carl Harper: Whenever the elections are called, I can see the DLP candidates on political platforms producing "secret documents" that fell off a truck, accusing the BLP of everything imaginable under the sun — the usual dreamed up conspiracy theories.
