BARBADIANS WHO CRITICISE children for displaying lewd behaviour have been deemed as “hypocrites” by Minister of Education Ronald Jones.

Speaking at a graduation ceremony yesterday evening at St Ambrose Primary, he made reference to some of the behaviour by adults on Kadooment Day.

“A licence to behave badly is not given on Kadooment Day. The licence is given to parade on Kadooment Day,” he declared.

“I know a lot of what I see can’t be fun, it is too crass. There is a possession of evil in the midst of merriment.”

Jones said that despite this, adults turned their tongues on the young ones.

The minister’s comments came on the same day some Barbadians expressed their strong disapproval of a video showing an apparently under-age boy gyrating on a full figured woman at a weekend fete. However, the organisers and a relative have insisted that he is older than he looks.
