I posted about this re-opening over the weekend. What has amazed me is that although there was intermittent grievious noise about the situation, the public never really protested the prolonged closure (openly?). As such I believe this led to the two year closure. I wonder would such a situation have been allowed to happen in Jamaica?

I think Jamaicans have greater cultural disposition to protest than Barbadians. If it happened in Jamaica, I could guarantee that our media houses would be flooded with complaints.

Nevertheless, there has been much lamentation in the Nation News regarding the closure.
