(10) Unspoken Truths About A Few Things In Barbados

Submitted by Austin

  1. Barbados is not ready for a homosexual or lesbian PM, maybe someday but not today.
  2. Owen Arthur is the best national leader alive capable of navigating Barbados back to prosperity.
  3. Extremely unwise economic and fiscal decision have been made by the current government which is impacting Bajan households in a significant way, an example of this are our high gas prices at the pump,  while oil prices are down.
  4.  The personality type of our current PM is not what Barbados needs at this time .. we need a lion  not a turtle.
  5. The next PM elected in Barbados will determine the future of Barbados in a very significant way.
  6. Elites in Barbados must be forced to share the wealth.
  7. The import export industry in Barbados is draining the life from Bajan households at the cash register.
  8. Priding ourselves on our high education standard is a waste of time if we have no jobs for our youth when they finish school.
  9. Government is too large and too inefficient; it’s time to trim the fat.
  10. We are as a nation horrible at marketing our national brand and must improve.

  2. @ Austin;
    Barbados already experienced leadership at the very top from people of this persuasion even if from the closet.
    Owen will not be the next PM. Hell will freeze over before the voters go back to the frying pan. They may be in the fire but the frying pan is not what they want. As things are looking the shadow might not be around to attend this coming event.
    Let us know how you will force the elite to share their wealth when they are protected by the political elite including the man you want to see back on stage.
    It is at the cash register that the wheels of economic activity are greased. How are you going to change that?

    @ Just Asking:
    Your PR exercise on behalf of CS has already been addressed in another thread.

    I like how you handled Austin on this one!

    A man who is now top dog confessed in an interview to be being tutored by his mentor CT an Oxonian with a tremendous grasp of the Queen’s English but with a rear guard action and preferred to operate from “behind” the scenes as king maker. The top dog admitted to spending many a long night at the feet of his intellectual hero from whom many habits have been adopted.

    Am I putting two and two together to be on all fours like Cornwell?


  5. @Austin

    Arthur has not put anything in the public domain which suggest there will be a departure from his policies of the past i.e. selling land and feeding a model of consumption expenditure. We need a new way of doing things.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Ah hahahahahahahahahaha! I laughing, but this is serious stuff!
    I like it! I like it! (Not the action, the expose/joke!)
    Hahahahahahahahaha!

    IS THIS TRUE Miller? Sounds like material from the famous Lie Factory set up in GEORGE STREET by the same CT.

    “AT THE FEET OF HIS INTELLECTUAL HERO!” Is that where he was? Shades of CLINTON/LEWINSKY? Hahahahahahaha


  7. @ Truthman Buton;

    I am glad you you find the thread rather funny and loaded with innuendo !

    But I am not familiar wit George street other than en passant! Don’t make any link here whatsoever!


  8. I disagree. Barbados is ready for a good , capable , fearless and articulate leader. Why should we worry about the sexual orientation of the person? As long as the person divorces his/ her personal from their professional life,: do not marry anyone in public, or flaunt any same sex partner in public.
    I could not care less. I prefer this rather than someone appearing in public with a wife and children, yet living another secret life with someone of the same sex on the down-low. At this time we need to stop the discrimination in Barbados and choose someone of whom all of us can be proud. Cast the first stone if you can truly determine the sheep from the wolves in sheep clothing.


  9. @ shellya:

    I agree totally! here is a thread I submitted earlier to a different blog!

    “Come on! In this age are you still saddle with that homophobic monkey on your back lark!

    I also place the ??? over anyone who appears so strident in denouncing people because of their sexual preference. Maybe it’s that person way of hiding their true sexual leanings, suppressing their desire to act out their fantasies or desperately trying to leave the closet.

    Or would you prefer the person you accused of being “that way” to stay in the closet like many of those on both side of the political divide. If JW was an elected member and was vying for leadership would you say the same thing? What about RS, RJ & MC or even PT- all good candidates for your moral microscope?

    There is a well known saying: “birds of a feather usually flock together”. It is felt that a well-known business person who is at the centre of a serious financial mess has such leanings that you- implicitly- fervently condemn. Yet this same person was able to openly flaunt his cosy personal association with political “has been” and their replacement(s). Using your method of assessment and reasoning can we conclude that some kind of dalliance took place between the parties involved?
    Any person, whether straight, gay, or in-between has a right to pursue their lifelong goals. However, any form of deviant behaviour or pervasion- whether sexual or in any other form of abuse (political / financial)- should be condemned and where those actions hurt or injure others, dealt with severely either through the criminal justice system or by social and political ostracism.

    Remember the moral injunction: “Those who are without sin throw the first stone”!


  10. @ millertheanunnaki

    I have a question for you, why do they seek refuge in politics and espeicially elective politics? One has to admit that their numbers in politics are greated than the national average, or is it that their lifestyles is more pervasive nationally than we believe?


  11. I have no problem at all with a gay Prime Minister. I’ve never voted for anyone because of their sexual abilities, after all I don’t plan to sex with the PM, whether he or she is gay or straight. If he or she is bright, hard-working, and honest I don’t care what they do with their sex lives as long as they close their bedroom door while they are doing “It” as as long as they don’t do “it” to a child, an animal or a non-consenting person. And if they wish to marry their partner that’s fine by me, and if the partner agrees to come to public functions with them I don’t care either. I just want the PM to do a good job. That’s all. He or she can then go home and sex with any consenting ma(e)n or woma(e)n.

    Its none of my business.

    None of your business either.


  12. i have known and mixed with what in my time we referred to as bullers and wickers all my life. they were generally quite respectable persons who did not flaunt or attempt to impose their behaviour/preference on no one; on the other hand, they were a few who flirted their behaviou rbut quickly retreated when exposed.so even though i empathise but frown on such irregular sexual behaviours, i have nothing against a lesbian or homosexual leader especially since prominent persons with such irregular behaviours have been accepted and idolised in our society during my short lifetime of observing the social and political scene in this hypocritical country of ours. so i do not know where mr arthur is coming from in his admonition of miss mottley especially after previously castigating those who had suggested such as mischievous in addition to his support for dr walcott and those from the DLP who were pushing this chorus since miss mottley became opposition leader. i had to remind the DLPITES that known homosexuals held high office in BARBADOS as representatives of the DLP. ALL I WANT IS A COMPETENT, EFFICIENT AND ARTICULATE LEADER WHO CAN MANAGE THE FRAGILE ECONOMY WWITH WHICH A COUNTRY WITH LIMITED RESOURCES LIKE US IS SADDLED.mr arthur did that well in his term of office but sadly i have lost confidence in his pronouncements leading up to the election and since then.


  13. Again we can rationalize all but Barbadians are a conservative lot, some will toss in hypocritocal and showing double stands but it is the reality. A government usually if done right will reflect the feelings of the people. Most Bajans frown publicly on homosexual behaviour. They will not want a ‘declared’ homosexual to be PM.

    … because we need real substance, not just empty flair.


    • It is amazing how we confer accolades on people simply because they sound good and play to the gallery.

      Corn beef politics is still alive and well.

      Is there truth to the plan that the late Thompson and Mia had an understanding?

    on “Chris Sinckler … still not the PRIME MINISTER OF BARBADOS … because we need real substance, not just empty flair. ”

    WELL SAID padre … well said

    balance

    You have a problem with people doing “it” with animals but you do not have a problem with people “slaughtering” them now do you .. Are you standing up for the animal?


  17. @ Random Thoughts:

    Well said! Your thought on this issue is solid and goes straight to the bull’s eye (no pun intended)!

    @ balance:

    ALL I WANT IS A COMPETENT, EFFICIENT AND ARTICULATE LEADER WHO CAN MANAGE THE FRAGILE ECONOMY WWITH WHICH A COUNTRY WITH LIMITED RESOURCES LIKE US IS SADDLED.

    Without out this kind of leadership this country is sailing up a creek with no paddle and heading in serious socio-economic trouble.

    It is amazing how Bajans like to boast of enjoying a so-called “first world material lifestyle’ but at the same time behave in a manner suite to a real third world republic or Saudi Arabia with its religious police when it come to granting people equal opportunity, accepting others for what they are and valuing their contribution to social and economic. If you want the West material trappings you should also accept the values system

    We need to stop focusing on people’s private and assess their potential and competence to mange the affairs of state.


  18. “They will not want a ‘declared’ homosexual to be PM.”

    BUT they would want a declared womanizer to be PM though. But what if it is a he or she or a closet manizer or womanizer? Would they be any wiser?


  19. I ain’t so sure about that BAFBFP…

    That’s like advocating the spread of STDs…!

    And don’t give me no crap about condoms, either! They don’t stop the spread of viruses that can’t cure!

    If people actually know what the dangers of having sex of many people are, I’m not so sure they would want to do it…!

    And if they still want to do that, well…they’re smart enough to deal with the ramifications!


    • This comment is for Albert Brandford of the Nation.

      BU has been as strident in publicizing the issue of the Pier Head.

      In your article you gave credit to mainstream media and forgot BU, most dishonest of you because we know you lurk on BU.


  20. @ Annunaki
    You neglected to mention that the vessel of conveyance is a brown paperbag, voyaging down the faecal effluent mainstream without any method of automonous propulsion.


  21. @Austin
    Point #6 the wealthy/ successful must be forced to share their wealth!

    What is your definition of wealthy?

    What proportion of the population is so defined?

    Are we taking their money regardless of whether earned legally or illicitly?

    Let’s say i am worth $10mn and you take it all and let’s say 200,000 Bajan’s are defined as needy then they would receive $50 each! They would most likely spend it all quite quickly, many at the Rum shop. However, I was planning to build a new development, with my group, which would employ 150 people for 3yrs and 50 people in various roles in the long term. That plan would be better or worse? It surely would not occur under your plan and other wealthy people would be scurrying to get their money OUT of Bim

    Suppose the Americans had taken Steve Jobs first $1BN then we would not have had the Iphone which has helped busy people send emails etc more efficiently on the fly so the DRs, nurses, Emerg responders etc would not be as effective. Would that have made sense???????

    Now if you are saying encouraged by Tax Policy etc to offer scholarships, build clinics, sponsor poor school kids etc that is very different.


  22. @ David

    While this does not look good, it is important to remember that the opposition only has two seat on the PAC while the DLP administration has three. It is also important to note that the BLP has the only attorney (former AG Marshall) on the committee while the DLP has the only engineer, Richard Sealy.

    All that not withstanding, I would be surprised if the DLP administration allows the PAC to meet and investigate this matter considering that ” a tree of often felled with a wedge cut from its onw branch”

    It is distinctly possible however that the DLP opts to get its demons out of the closet by leaving DB to fend for himself.


    • We forget Minister Sealy is an engineer and would have done some wonderful work on the soon to be Barrack building.


  23. Quoting moneybrain “Let’s say i am worth $10mn and you take it all and let’s say 200,000 Bajan’s are defined as needy then they would receive $50 each!

However, I was planning to build a new development, with my group, which would employ 150 people for 3yrs and 50 people in various roles in the long term.”

    And what if your 150 + 50 people spent it all quite quickly, many at the rum shop? And what if the people who bought in your development did not pay their mortgages, instead they spent their pay cheques quickly, many in the rum shops?

    Sincerely

    The Devil’s Advocate


  24. @David We forget Minister Sealy is an engineer and would have done some wonderful work on the soon to be Barrack building.

    And John Boyce is also an Engineer, responsible for the Cock Up junction near Lime /Courtesy Garage, and the ring of roundabouts around Warrens.


  25. IF Chris Sinckler is not bright , shining, willing able and capable -who is ????
    IF Chris Sinckler is not Prime Minister material -who is ???
    CAN you who criticising Chris and others get up parliament or anywhere else and make a speech without biting up wunna down tongue or drink about 50 different concoctions to even start ???
    SHOULD I steuuuupseeee ?????
    WHY dont you all respect these bright and capable Barbadians and stop denigrating our people from both sides of the political divide ???
    WHEN will the nonsense stop ???
    WHEN will we respect the abilities of our sons and daughters and stop pulling them down ??


  26. Look all you people who are of the belief that Sinkler is the best thing since HD TV, cast your mind back three years when he was still head of an NGO that was completely opposed to the signing of the EPA (Eu Partnership Agreement) but changed his song within days of gaining a seat in Parliament. … No scruples .. None! Future PM my ass …!


  27. @ JUST ASKING

    Can you ask Stinkler about the $40 million paid for a redesign of the marina at the Pierhead, specifically these questions:-

    a) Is it true or not that the redesign of the marina and the master plan, described as by the developer as turning Bridgetown into the Monoco of the Caribbean, all about CASINO gambling?
    b) Is it true or not that the redesign of the marina and the master plan, described as by the developer as turning Bridgetown into the Monoco of the Caribbean, calls for the demolition of a church and London Bourne towers?
    c) Is it true or not that the redesign of the marina and the master plan, described as by the developer as turning Bridgetown into the Monoco of the Caribbean nothing more than a scheme for the collection of tens of millions in fees?


  28. Energy Star

    Please, now is the time to submit an article to BU for comments. This will be a good thing for all. Come on get it off of your chess, personally I want to hear more. These political parties need as much expose as is possible … Put the article up there man


  29. @ BAFBFP

    Fear not my friend, the Pierhead marina issue of which the so-called master plan (recently described by Stinkler as the Bridgetown Improvement Master Plan) is a part of the scheme will, if OSA has his way, find its way in the public domain. Stay turned for:-

    a) The TRUTH about the Villages at Coverly.
    b) The TRUTH about the Pierhead Marina redesign & master plan.

    I suspect a) is the secondary rocket booster for the BLP and b) is the primary rocket booster.


  30. @ Energy Star:

    I will bet you a million dollars that OSA does not have the intestinal or testicular fortitude to expose these crooks.
    You must remember that DB outside point man is Banny who was (or could still be) OSA 10% man. All you are going to get from OSA is a lot of circumlocution and innuendo and side stepping (as in the case of MAM’s lifestyle exposé). OSA’s political sparring with a smug look on his face is all the dodo public will see.

    We the political sleuths at BU know what’s really going on at Coverly. Hence the obvious volte -face of the British born bull dog who, previously with repetitive barking, would have attacked and bitten any one from the other side in the house of talk.
    Leasing government land for such long period for peppercorn rent requires such a bold leap into the pit of corruption that can only be compensated by overseas kickbacks.

    But OSA is caught in a dilemma (between a rock and a hard place). Should he cash in his stakes into the political poker game (hence upping his chances of returning to power by exposing the DLP and its cronies) or should he just spit in the air hoping it does not fall on himself. It is possible that OSA has a number of skeletons in his cupboard whose knob might be pulled by the same barnacles he might be seeking to remove from the fishy dinghy in the marina.

    OSA might therefore heed the adage: He who lives in a glass house should not throw stones! But OSA by playing to the public gallery will only go through the motions of pelting a big rock, when in truth and in fact it is just a piece of rolled-up paper (marina design contracts).


  31. Things that make you go Hmmmnnn….

    Sometimes the things unsaid are more interesting than what was said.. According to Branford’s article Arthur said at a public meeting that he had given certain instructions to Minister of Tourism Noel lynch and Chairman of BTTI Darcy Boyce “that there is to be no hanky panky in the tendering and who gets the work”

    Why would the PM advise his Minister and a senior civil servant about observing the rules of probity in the awarding of a contract? Immediately the mind starts to wonder about the approval process of previous contracts and whether any rules were observed or if they even existed.

    If these rules were more honoured in the breach than in the observance something is rotten in the state of Denmark


  32. Bottomline, the DLP accused the BLP of corruption before coming to office and 3 years hence NOTHING.

    The BLP now in Opposition have accused the government of corruption at Coverley and the Pierhead Project. We shall see where this goes. Firm bet, no where.


  33. Sargeant wrote “he had given certain instructions to Minister of Tourism Noel lynch and Chairman of BTTI Darcy Boyce “that there is to be no hanky panky in the tendering and who gets the work”

    That was just shite talk on a political platform……..Unless he perceived these two to be predisposed to thievery or they had been guilty of prior bad acts.


  34. Wait David we got a politician who is a declare homosexual? Who de body is? I like I miss sumtin. Tell de people ef yuh know nuh.

    I wants to know if I cud vote for de body and effin I think dem is PM material. Man tell we nuh.


  35. To David:
    As I read these pieces and the pieces on the NIS money disaster, spear headed by that joker marshall, I am wondering if all of us realize that a government can go broke. California is a state, but when it went broke the governor’s house was sold. Could we sell government house; will it be possible just now to buy the ministry of finance. I know that barack already owns the ministry of housing. Given that scenario are we really looking hard at who we elect to govern us. This matter is truly becoming a very serious joke but in the end all bajans shall be bawling. I know that a number of people come on this blog with their political bias but people this matter at hand is about all of us, not the election of your favorite people or woman or manizer.


    • @lemuel

      If educated Barbadians cannot rationalize that we are in deep doo doo then we deserve what we get.


  36. I am not too concerned about educated Barbadians, for they shall dust off their visa, that they have spied so hard for like Peter spy man Wickham and flee like lice off the dying body of they host. I am concerned about those who truly believe that this government is not about to go broke just now. Sinker and his crowd guaranteed that Coverley project; that means that if those house do not sell, the people of barbados have to look foe over 300 million to pay the contractors. We are still paying for the beautiful offices of the chief justice, the eric holder center, the prison, the coast guard building, the pier head project, and add to that joker marshall and his intention to prop up the paradise project. The general trend is allow things to fail and the external agencies may decide to allow this up the creek with out a paddle attempt at governance fail. We seem to be feeling safe with the impression that barbados is of some significance globally. The white shirt stiffs who only travel first class like our globe trotting ministers who bring NOTHING (useful that is) back home shall let this littel boat sink, even if it is another dastardly experiment to see the out come. As I said up a creek with out a paddle politics is what we are seeing.


  37. @ santa:

    Would you take your filth elsewhere!!
    This is a forum for serious discussion especially in these challenging times that require tremendous brainpower and human energy to see this poor country through the pending rough seas.


  38. @ lemuel:

    Barbados is seen by the economic chess players working in the international monetary factory in a similar light that military generals play war games.
    The game goes like this:

    How come a 2×3 developing country- with little or no natural resources, with a small population primarily of African descent and with a colonial past in which the natives never fought for political freedom or removal of domination of its economy by foreign corporations – can punch so much above its weight and provide its people with a high standard of material living, free education up to university level, health and other social services that are the envy of the so –called developed world?

    We must find out what kind of mettle these people are made of. We will lend them some big money to buy Japanese and Chinese consumer toys to make them feel they have arrived to first world status. But like true loan sharks we will make them pay through their teeth and keep them on the treadmill of debt and dependence.

    Will they jump off and land safely or like their other third world cousins fall off and crash?

    Stay tune for the outcome of the game in 6 months time. The players are in town and ready to take the filed of play.

    Not filth but serious stuff that has implication for national affairs
    Can you imagine Ilaro Court being run over by reindeers


  40. To Millerthan…
    I tried to spell the rest did not succeed; however, I am not too worried about the chess players; I am worried about the starve out, hand to mouth politicians that we elected to govern us, both sides of the isle. The “chess players” come from an environment where they play out their games theoretically before they try it actually. They will give our politicians anything so as to get them to go along with their little experiment. Barbados is only a village globally. When we are allowed to fail then models can be constructed with the what ifs to see how that would relate to profits on a larger scale. Right now much of europe is ripe for the taking. But remember the technique in the world war 2; they ensured that some place was designated as a safe haven for their money. Something needs to fail for they have to be sure how to protect their wealth.


  41. @ santa:

    No! My imagination can’t stretch that far. But I can see you being taken there on a sleigh by the same reindeer for your annual colonoscopy at Xmas time. Or maybe a jackass cart with you in front and the product of the no. 2 business in the cart would be more suited to the environment in which you operate.

    Leave the woman alone! One can only know the intricate details of another person’s private activities if you are an integral player in the game.


  42. @ lemuel:

    Miller the A will be fine!

    What is your take on the proposition that the village Barbados will soon (say by July 2012) find itself having to undergo “special measures” in order to shore up its foreign reserves. It might have to cash in some of its gold bullion reserves to make ends meet if its residents don’t reduce their thirst for foreign consumer goods and big living (overseas luxury travel). Some of that figure of foreign reserves reported by the CBB is just a lot of paper work and book-keeping recordings of non-liquid assets.

    I doubt very much if that level of foreign reserves in liquid or near-liquid forms are floating around in the banking system.


  43. To MillerA:
    That special measures move maybe the fulcrum that the game players are waiting on. That will be the opportunity to craft a special deal to supply a source of foreign funds at a cost. Sandi did it. He took the funds; reduced salaries by 8%, reduced severance payments and set the field to destroy the NIS, which that joker Marshall will marshall over until the job is done. The american and european games theorists are at their wits end to find a model; Barbados might just be ripe for the picking at the right price with the right hand to mouth politicians to legislate it into law. They must have a guarantee that their funds shall be safe. Unlike some european countries we have nuff nuff resoect for the law. Notice our chief justice hails from the bowels of the beast called the usa. The europeans used that models to steal the south african and surrounding countries lands. They learned well from Hitler, who did the executed the same model in Germany. Who will the one to take the twenty pieces of sliver, which will be safely squirrel away to sell out the little boat with out a paddle who is up the creek?


  44. To MillerA:
    The hacking of the various sites or system in Barbados may not be coincidental it may be deliberate attempt to garner the prerequisite data for compilation of the game at hand. One has to know if one’s attacks can be countered.


  45. The way things are panning out makes interesting reading.
    Eric Holder (who?), our newly adopted son of the soil is turning out to be the most inept and reviled AG of recent times.

    Now an admitted perjurer, complicit in the supply of guns to Mexican drug cartels in return for federal protected cocaine imports into the US, and we name a building after this crook?

    Says a lot for Bajan standards, what next the Leroy Parris Centre for Enterprise. based in the old Hardwood Housing building at Six Roads.

    Very soon the GoB has to make a defining decision for once.

    After Israel’s soon coming attack on Iran, what side of the fence will Humpty Stuart fall on, the new willing benefactor – China, or the old, soon to be bankrupt- USA, willing to invade at the drop of a hat, desperate to retain what possible resources they can grab.
    Although frightening with the the real threat of WW3, but illuminating to the student of global power plays, when old empires are challenged by new.

    We live in dangerous times (weeks).


  46. @RT
    You are on the right track ie most people end up spending their money at the rum shop! ( or equivalent wasting) The homes built adds to the wealth of Bim, if some buyers are too greedy or get divorced etc and lose their homes, that is not my problem assuming I did not offer ridiculous mortgage financing. People have to take responsibilty for their actions.


  47. Mia , why dont you leave the female discriminating BLP and along with some of the other neglected and disrespected BLP and DLP females and males form a new, formidable party. Many Barbadians love you and appreciated your representation of this country as a strong, confident acting prime minister and opposition leader. Your confidence and articulate speeches are sadly missed. Your time is now.


  48. In Keeping with Globalization Barbados with the rest of the world, it is necessary to integrate Gaylesbian legalization , As a developing country whose main economy is Tourism we really cannot afford to appear anti gaylesbian


  49. No. No matter how long this recession may last, leave my donkey there because I am not selling my ass…
