Submitted by Beresford Barbados is now in its most absurd position, of having to pay a much greater price for the garbage out of the mouth of its Prime Minister and DLP government than dealing with the literal garbage that is a plague on the nation. At the bullseye of the economic disaster everyone and […]
In the last report, we merely reported the allegations of Agard contained in her affidavit. We did not comment or editorialize. We also warned that we had not had sight or a bare recitation of any defence filed by the defendants Mottley and Walcott, that allegations of Agard were not proved in a court of […]
The government and DLP supporters are pleased for the distraction the Maria Agard disagreement with her political party offers. […]

Submitted by Beresford In dire times, while the society rallies in national survival mode, driven by personal crises, there is always that element that crassly exploits the desperate times for solely their own good. As Barbados struggles and becomes daily weighed down under the onslaught […]
Submitted by Douglas Press time… nothing like the Opposition Leader smiling in the dailies with people that once thought very little of her. Mottley is now faced with a public relations fiasco going into the next Annual Conference […]

Submitted by Douglas DEAR Mia, It has been over a year since we parted company as party colleagues. I thought it provided us with an opportune time to reflect on the progress we have made on our separate political journeys. I must say M, I feel refreshed and invigorated since […]
During the Presentation of the Financial Statement and Budgetary Proposals 2015 the intelligence of Barbadians was trivialized (or was it) by the debate whether Lowe has earned a Doctorate or leader of the Opposition possesses the requisite qualification to practice law in Barbados. Former Prime Minister Owen Arthur has routinely described contributions to debate in […]
Barbadians listened with rap attention to the demolition job inflicted by Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley on the government to expose the Cahill Waste-to-Energy scam. It boggles the mind OUR government would be swayed […]
It is the turn today (16/06/2015) of the Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley to reply to the 2015 Financial Statement and Budgetary Proposals. BU has little doubt the four hour period allotted will be used to poke holes in many of the proposals the minister of finance delivered yesterday. […]

1. George Payne vs Eddmond Hinkson an unnecessary high court suit still not resolved since the start of her term as opposition leader OFF AND STUMBLING!

3. Wasted opportunity :Appointing the biggest disappointment in Christ Church Dr “smut matters most ” Walcott to the senate. Does he lead the young and un impressive Wilma Abrahams or is Wilma leading him ?

The following is a statement issued by the leader of the Opposition Barbados Labour Party Mia Mottley. The action by Mia Mottley may prove to be a defining moment for her in the battle of public perception over BLP leadership. If she is able to rally her troops on Thursday, it will go a long […]
At a time Barbadians are crying out for leadership the official Barbados Labour Party (BLP) has pursued a strategy to retreat into political obscurity. In the same way many believe the government is responsible for rolling out policies that are heavily influenced by the dictates of international lending and credit rating agencies so too the […]
Submitted by Political Commentator It seems as if Trevor Precod is hell bent on reducing further – if that is really possible – his already less than impressive political career.
