FECTAB: “Something’s Require Wahn Dictatorship”

David Almendarez

FECTAB’s demand for equity in the distribution of tourism relief is in the interest of small and independent tour operators who they say are constantly overlooked by government and industry regulators.  While there are requirements to access financial assistance, representatives of the federation are adamant that the monies should not be disbursed by those persons tasked by government.

 

David Almendarez, Tour Operator

“I believe it is not the B.T.B.’s responsibility to be making those decisions at this point in time.  The crisis, you know something, before wahn hurricane hit you, the first thing yo hyah da wahn tropical disturbance deh by Cape Verde islands.  We done get this tropical disturbance warning two weeks ago, wahn month ago, you got wahn sickness out deh.  Your two leaders get together, sihdown da wahn press conference just like this and none ah unu media ask ahn why yoh noh di shutdown the airport.  Ah wahn tell yoh something right now, at the beginning ah dis week the great United States of America had less than a thousand case confirmed coronavirus, the great United States.  As we speak today, before the end of the day dehn wahn got twenty thousand confirmed cases, plus.  Anything happen to America affect we, yet your airport still open.  Somebody could buy wahn flight right now fi one hundred and seventy-five dollars and your leader noh have di vision, your Leader of the Opposition noh smart enough fu decide lock that off.  I wahn tell you something very serious and unu media ih wahn affect unu to, eena di next couple ah weeks things wah di get soh hard your lee paper money noh wahn worth nothing, unless we have wahn dictatorship weh tek ova di wata, weh tek ova di light, weh tek ova your internet and tell di bank yoh cyant collect no money this month, tell di rent man yoh cyant collect no money this month.  Unless you do dat, you wahn have wahn problem and that da weh your seventy-five million dollars supposed to di go towards, noh Mrs. Karen Bevans or nobody else di mek dehn simple decision.  If yoh have wahn real leader, some things require wahn dictatorship.”
