The PM and Lowe are not prepared to address issues relative to transparency, but are finding justification for the CAHILL project to start. Since both men are adamant the project must start, I felt it was in the best interest of the island for us to examine the economic/financial implications of a WTE.
Notice each time Lowe is challenged he resorts to engaging in “political distractions.” Remember when Mottley questioned him about CAHILL, he recited his autobiography in parliament, letting us know how poor he grew up and displayed unverified copy of his doctorate, while saying Mottley did not have a LEC to practice law in Barbados. The resident DLP yard-fowls obviously ran with this as it took “centre stage” for discussion, thereby distracting from the issues of transparency and accountability as it relates to CAHILL.
AG Brathwaite promised to investigate if there was any truth to these allegations. However, since he has NOT RETURNED to the public or parliament with the RESULTS of his INVESTIGATIONS, we can safely assume Lowe was LYING.
Moreover, a VIGILANT and RESPONSIBLE MEDIA (in the interest of transparency) would have REMINDED Brathwaite of his PROMISE and pressured him to REVEAL THE FACTS or EXPOSE HIM as a FRAUD and LIAR if he FAILED to do so, since enough time has elapsed.
Now we are witnessing Lowe, in the face of criticism, again refusing to answer questions about CAHILL and resorting to attacking social media. He is fully aware this source of news, especially BU, has kept the flames burning under CAHILL, while the Nation, Advocate, Barbados Today, CBC and experienced journalists such as David Ellis continue to give him a “free pass,” $200 for passing GO, and a “get out of jail free” card.
What is more comical is the Nation’s lack of interest in exposing CAHILL and other IMPORTANT ISSUES affecting Barbados, but preferred to send an “undercover reporter” to EXPOSE a WHORE HOUSE or featuring two “skippers” as a front page story. If that media house in interested in sleaze, perhaps they should send “undercover reporters” to Bridgette International Bar in Nelson Street so as to inform us about the variety of nationalities of women who sell their “wares” in that establishment.
BU must be congratulated for continued efforts in highlighting CAHILL with commendable zeal and remaining steadfast despite the DLP infiltrators trying unsuccessfully to “politically spin” the issue.
