What’s Trending:Hammie’s plea for REDjet
The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending in Barbados today.
MP Hamilton Lashley’s call to let REDjet, “poor man’s airline” fly again has not gone unnoticed by some readers this morning.
Lashley made a plea today as the airline remained grounded for the tenth day.
He said he would tell Prime Minister Freundel Stuart as well as other regional leaders, to put some money in and let the airline fly again.
This is what some readers had to say.
Bentley Williams: “Wait Hammie La didn’t get the memo? They have gotten enough already. They don’t deserve anymore.”
Tracey Ashby: “Well said.”
David Aplmac: “Headline should read ‘Lashley calls on *Regional TAXPAYERS* to help RedJet!’ Do you want to help REDJet? I don’t care if it folds or flies. If it can’t self-sustain, why should the taxpayers support it? I’m sick of paying other people’s bills.”
The faces of the two people charged in connection with separate killings over the weekend also had some tongues wagging this morning.
Angela Wright is accused of wounding with intent James Jackman, who died Friday night after being stabbed at his home, while Renaldo Mikhail Trotman was charged with causing serious bodily harm to Sylvan Trotman.
