The Caribbean Island of Barbuda is to change its name to Singapuda after a 73 year legal court case. Since its birth, Singapore had always contested that it and not Barbados was the geological father of the idyllic Caribbean hotspot. Singapore had claimed that it and Bermuda had a one night stand at the Triangle in the Atlantic Ocean but was not told about the child. Using the latest fossil taxonomy research it was proven without a doubt that the Island was fathered by the popular far eastern paradise destination. Although the Barbados name is dropped, Singapore will have no legal rights over the infant island as the courts agreed it would be too disruptive to break up "a warm bond" adding that Barbados had been "a perfect father with some of the best beaches".
Singapore has claimed it will appeal the courts ruling and is seeking compensation from Bermuda for loss of tourism.
