The silly season has begun

Beware my fellow Barbadians, for the "silly season" has started. For all those non-Bajans reading the blog, the "silly season" is the name given to the period leading up to national elections. During that special time, the electoral candidates try to out-fox each other to win the hearts of the electorate.
Although elections are not constitutionally due until 2008, the increase in the number of political meetings being held is a sure sign of the advent of silly season. Just recently it was announced that fuel prices were decreasing and that several housing projects were in the works. Coincidence? Who knows? All I can say is that we're in for a lot more announcents to be made at public meetings.
I'll be off for a few days but feel free to post your thoughts on the "silly season".
