The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending in Barbados today.
This morning readers are reacting to the story quoting political scientist Peter Wickham who termed Prime Minister Freundel Stuart’s appointment of a Commission of Inquiry into Alexandra School as a political blunder.
Wickham further believes this move is not one from a man who wants to win the next general elections.
These are the views of some of our readers.
Melvin Skeete: “I feel sorry for the DLP, the party I love and support. Mr Stuart don't seem to understand the reality of politics. A few months ago he assured the Nation that he will settle this matter without fear or favour, and now this. I will be very surprised if the DLP win seven seats with Mr. Stuart as leader.”
JCP: “…..I'm sure Mr. Stuart is a wonderful person in person but Barbados is a fickle place to lead and he doesn't quite have the right mix.”
Barvester King: “…We have a Prime Minister that make decisions not for political reasons but what is best for the country . A Prime Minister that is not into theatrics and cosmetics but moves by what is right and what is best for the whole country. A Prime Minister who speak when he has to, not when the media wants him to speak.”
Another story trending this morning is the closing of NewEdgewater Hotel yesterday. This hotel has now fallen into the hands of receivers KPMG.
Readers had this to say.
Vince Holder: “Recession really taking its toll, shame.”
Andrew Ward: “Last time I was in Barbados I remember sitting in Edgewater on a Saturday morning looking out at the ocean. That memory will be with me forever. It was such beautiful sight.”
