I have to agree with you. This is the irony of it all...rich and yet so backward. I believe the politicians have no interest in the welfare of their citizens and to think that this is the 21st century. Kem Barbados was a slave colony and our health care system can match with some of the bigger countries. (The leaders here are not perfect but their vision for their people is so different from those of African countries. African countries have some of the best minds and yet this continent seems to have lost its way. If the leaders of these countries want to do something they can do it...BUT they choose to line their pockets and provide ONLY for their families....THESE FOLKS JUST DON'T CARE.
