THE MOVE by Government to acquire a property on Bay Street for the controversial Hyatt Centric Hotel has nothing to do with a public purpose.
Rather, it is the Government showing its arrogance and taking property from a Barbadian to give to a foreign entity, charged Senator Caswell Franklyn as he called on Barbadians to stand up to an administration given to excesses.
“We need more people in this country standing up to this administration letting them know to hold back … because you are taking away too many rights, now. You are taking away people’s property under the guise of public purpose.
“This is not a public purpose … This is a purpose to facilitate one of the people you hated a few months ago. What has changed . . .Why is this Government doing this?” he asked in the Senate yesterday.
