Barbados: Labour party blogging

Barbados's incumbent Barbados Labour Party seems to have taken to blogging like a fish to water — at least for now. Four posts in the last four days, on topics such as why the “two major media organizations” in the UK and the USA contacted blog Barbados Free Press for a story about the Barbados Labour Party blog instead of contacting the party directly, an online poll, and the deficiencies of the rival political party's newly launched web site.

    BARBADIAN PAPARAZZI

    Is David Ellis being recruited to run for the DLP in Noel Lynch’s riding? Sources close to the DLP recruiting committee have not denied or confirmed that Ellis met at a secret location with top DLP people on several occasions in the very recent past. Ellis is considered a well-balanced and educated individual, suitable to make an excellent candidate. It is felt he has the qualities to be groomed for possible high offices within the party. It is also felt that he will garnish a high number of sympathy votes resulting from his one-on-one with the arrogant minister of tourism. Many feel he, [as a media practitioner] was abandoned by the powers that be in his own profession.

    Would it not be ironic that after the next elections, he has some input to hand out a TV license? A word to both the market vendor and his assistants. “The same stone that is cast aside, eventually becomes the cornerstone”
