Let’s hope the win is not blown

Whoever wins the political battle of all battles in Barbados 2013 will have to blow their political bagpipes in “The Win”.

The air of that prospective win is filled with promises that they say are sustainable. But it is always a “wait and see”.

The wait is now short, but the “see” is pregnant with suspense. There’s no doubt that the economic clouds are very dark, so innovation must be the order of the day – and the economic night.

I take no side, but my stance is innovation, and to effectuate our national motto of Pride And Industry.

More national sustainable industries – only tourism, on decline due to the recession – for more foreign exchange, with more foreign ideas.

Barbados has some of the brightest political and economic brains in the Caribbean and indeed the world, due to our free good education and literacy rate.

So “The win” Government, when the time comes, should capture this, along with innovation, to change things for the much needed better.

A win is a win is a win. And a loss is a loss is a loss. But whoever wins should not lose it five years from the present due to the loss of ideas and innovative implementations. Otherwise they would blow “the win”.

An open letter to my fellow Bajans.
If you want another 15 years of a gender biased party, more golf courses, more enclaves like Westmoreland and the Crane, providing jobs for maids, gardeners, security guards, cleaners and porters. The BLP is for you.
If you want to support a 5 year administration who ignored the Palistinian UN vote, for Zionists crumbs from the master`s table or granting 15 year concessions to non-nationals to open a business, providing jobs for cashiers, shelf stackers, security guards and cleaners.
The DLP is for you.
Agriculture provides more jobs than golf and your belly will be full every day with good organic produce.
Be very careful in making your choice but by all means cast your vote.
Good luck,
