Congratulations to all Bajan contributors in this forum
Save

As a regular visitor to Barbados for almost 20 years who has relied on this forum for a lot of information regarding travel to Barbados, I wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate all Bajans on Barbados obtaining its independence yesterday and becoming a republic! I also wanted to thank all native Bajans and Bajans-in-training (like myself) for their continuing contributions in this forum that has made them ambassadors for Barbados and made all visitors to Barbados feel very welcome even before visiting Barbados! Yesterday's Independence Day is a defining political occasion and I can only wish all the very best to all Bajans moving forward into the future!

For greater clarification (and before I get a lot of negative comments) about this post, I would like to clarify that I am aware that Barbados obtained its independence on 30 November 1966 and has already been independent for 55 years and my congratulations above relates to Barbados becoming a republic yesterday!

Robeny Speaking as a very proud Resident rather than Citizen of Barbados , thank you for your good wishes

Regardless of what Barbados lovers around the world think of this decision, unless one is Bajan born, no one has a right to criticise what has been decided for the good of the future of Barbados . Anyone who truly loves this Island and her people can only wish the best for them and their future.

God Bless the Republic of Barbados

Barbados is finally solely in charge of its own destiny, as it should be. Pleasing to see they will retain membership of the Commonwealth. Remember the past, but do not dwell on it and embrace the obvious friendship that exists. As Westie says we can only wish Bajans all the best for their future.

Thank you Barefoot Jo (post #3) for understanding the tone of my original message. My comments were not intended to be political but simply made to express my sincere good wishes to all of the people of Barbados that have been so welcoming to everyone and deserve all of the best moving forward as a republic. Thank you also to Westiegal (post #6) for similarly understanding my intentions. These two regular posters (and others like them) deserve all of the praise for all of these years that they have been assisting travelers with their questions and I truly appreciate all that they have done to make this forum a success that will hopefully continue as we all share this uncertain future.
