Prime Minister Stuart, It Is time To Ring The Bell

Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart

The eagerly awaited Peter Wickham Cadres poll has been leaked to the media. Based on the report Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart appears to be viewed as less likely to lead the DLP to victory. It is bad enough the DLP government has had to combat managing the economy in an austere environment, to float a damaging poll  at this time is perhaps the final nail in the coffin. One did not need a poll to assess that Prime Minister Stuart does not have the national profile or support at this time. Who can forget Minister David Estwick wearing a red short on the morning of the tragic event.

It is sad that a BLP government which was voted out of office less than five years ago will probably be returned without having to revamp or promise any radical policies to Barbadians. At this stage BU is somewhat nonplus about what the political landscape is likely to be. What is sure is that it will be more of the same. Prime Minister Stuart the best advice BU can give you is to ring the bell. The country cannot afford yet another political cat fight.

A people will get the government it deserves.

  1. Some good ole bajan sayings dedicated to Sinckler and Hartley Henry (who was advisor to the dearly departed UWP King administration in St. Lucia – hence the urgency in “advice” to the DLP gang who couldnt shoot straight) – yuh could hide and buy land, but yuh cant hide and wuck it….the things yuh do at night, one day will come to light….ONE DAY COMING SOON

    People can speculate all they want. It is not the moderator confirming or denying anything.

    Quite frankly, I sometimes wonder if CCC is not multiple persons; for example, a group of persons on a specific agenda rather than an individual. I note with curiosity the meandering levels of language and arguments and while the agenda is consistently on the behalf of the DLP, the arguments are much more fluctuating as if the individual or individuals doubt themselves.
    Anyway, the blogs gives expression to one writing in their names or assuming other identities and I respect that.


  3. One suspects that the job of MoF& E A is too big for the “every body hates chris” competence. One cannot bullshit in that job for too long before the sh*t hit the fan. I think he is looking for a way out. Get the top post, qualify for a big pm pension and give back the government to the able BLP to run the economic affairs of state.


  4. I thought that Mr Persaud was asking for 50 million dollars. Now I read that it will be 60 million, who increased the dollars? If this was the BLP you would hear the likes of CCC saying the BLP corrupt. By the way, is this in Barbados currency or US? Just asking?


  5. Another factor that BarbadosToday reported that no one on the blog is considering is the expressed concern by members of the DLP parliamentary group about financing for the next election not being secured as yet whereas in 2006 they had already secured financing for the 2008 election. Is Sinckler favored by potential financiers? Does this mean in the absence of the CLICO Money Train to Paris, they have to execute this overthrow of Stuart to secure their campaign finances? The Sapphire meeting now looks very suspect…and the plot to remove Stuart as PM appears to be real and true as confirmed by Kellman and Stuart himself.


  6. A party in power usually does not struggle for campaign funding, that is a pretty basic rule of politics, so that dog won’t hunt when trying to justify the actions of these rogues.

    There more probable reason is that the campaign financiers (the st.peter boys) won’t finance with FS as the PM given that he is not capable of being bought outright. The DLP should tell those funders to piss off, the word on the street anyway is that they have returned to OSA and the BLP with offers of big, big money.


  7. BLP jokers in a feeding frenzy.

    You all are so easy to bait. So much mindless chatter on this thread only Barbados Labour Party members and supporters can apreciate it.

    Hogwash in the yesterday’s Nation newspaper, a newspaper well known for false reporting from its inception. All one has to do is send a tip to the Nation no matter how ridiculous and they will run with it, no facts checking because the truth might get in the way.

    The conclusion one can draw from this thread is the fact that a tremendous amount of money is being wasted on education here in Barbados. My dog in my backyard has more sense than almost all who are writing on this thread and he didn’t go to Harrison’s Collage or UWI. It just boggles my mind that people who call themselves educated could be writing such foolishness in this day and age. I think there is also a man here on this thread who says he is pursing a PHD. Is this what education in Barbados has come to?

    We seem to producing a bunch of educated idiots!!!! Then again sensible people don’t support the Barbados Labour Party.


  8. @CCC

    There you go again! Stuart, Kellman, Sir Philip Greaves. Do any of their comments tell you that there is a smokescreen? Did Peter Wickham go into Brass Tacks because of a rumour? Time shall tell.


  9. @ CCC
    And that is why you are trying to fool us? Based on the comments of PM Stuart, Minister Kellman and Sir Philip Greaves I am convinced that ‘Sapphire Gate’ is true.


  10. @Enuff

    I am honoured to be in your good company against CCC. The Nation and the BLP and even BU will be on the receiving end, but CCC knows the truth and dare not tell.


    • @George

      Wonder why you would use the word even in your last comment? Is it that the BLP posse believes BU is run by the DLP?


  11. @CCC

    You wrote: ” I think there is also a man here on this thread who says he is pursing a PHD. Is this what education in Barbados has come to?”

    Assuming that you meant me; and assuming that you meant a PhD I can assure you that I am not to be underestimated. While you may pull cotton wool over the eyes of some, you will not so easily deceive me into thinking there was no attempt to persuade FS to move aside. As I have said, time is longer than twine and we shall see. I am sure that you know that I have many of the details (first hand at that). The stupid parliamentarians that tried to commit political suicide met last night after being refused an audience with FS unless they were willing to meet individually to discuss what issues they had. FS is an attorney and he knows full well that he holds the cards and not the dissidents. FS is also the intellectual type and I am sure that after seeing the stupidity of his team, he knows that Barbados cannot be led by any of them and hence Plato’s philosopher king will hold the seat of power until he decides differently. CCC what has got you up a creek is that FS outfoxed another Foundation School boy not of the same vintage and another who for some reason was well-received by the predecessor but holds no berth with the incumbent. CCC retreat from me now, for your ways are not mine and your wishes are not those of the electorate of Barbados.

    “We seem to producing a bunch of educated idiots!!!! Then again sensible people don’t support the Barbados Labour Party.”

    CCC. we now understand why the dlp smart guys keep good company with Leroy Greenverbs. Birds of a feather tend to fly together, even Mr. Physical Deficit will Inc(e)h his way to the front of the class to climb the tower of intelligence in Paris(s).


  13. @David

    On the contrary and I am sorry that you would have interpreted it that way. In fact, what I write on the blogs is not commissioned or influenced by the party machinery. I write out of my own volition to do so.
    What I did mean was that CCC will selectively attempt to cast blame to the sources of information and label them because for the most part, it is obvious that a sinister plan was underway.


    • @St. Georges Dragon

      Ronald Jones has been the Acting PM when the situation requires.

      @Morris

      Don’t know what matter is on the Order Paper because the Barbados Parliament website appears not to have been updated.


  14. @ George C. Brathwaite | December 12, 2011 at 5:49 PM |
    “CCC what has got you up a creek is that FS outfoxed another Foundation School boy…. ”

    Did John the laughing hyena attend Foundation? Or are you thinking of HH the pr kingmaker man with a Healthy??? Heart who in hypocritical pharaonic tradition buried himself along with his dead king?
    The garrison pony boys ran true to form: You can’t make a silk purse out of two pigs’ ears neither can 2 jackasses out fox a fumbling thoroughbred.


  15. @ millertheanunnaki

    Have you ever seen any of those pictures taken at recent events (past few years) wherein a number of Foundation Old Scholars were present? I noticed a few recognisable persons and some are of good standing in the society while some are standing to look good (no disrespect intended). To name a few in no special order and not reflecting the two categories I named were: Freundel Stuart; Marston Gibson; Orlando Scott; Peter Wickham to name a few.


  16. Doesn’t an Acting Prime Minister have to be appointed when the PM goes off-island? Who is it, Mr Sinckler?


  17. @ George C. Brathwaite | December 12, 2011 at 6:26 PM |

    Reading you loud and clear! But it seems that the local spy man has more clout than the English “funny” spy man Burgess from the cold war days.
    This is really a foundational breach of allegiance to the old school on the hill. If FS had attended the Mafiosi school in waterford bottom where ties of bull(y)ing run deep he would not be so betrayed by such a rear guard attack from a pollster parading as an objective journalist.


  18. To Miller:
    Was Mia in on this attempt to topple Fruendel Stuart. Did she take full opportunity at the foot ball games to try to advise Chris Sinker about how, where and what to do. I do not see Peter the spy man Wickham doing this without her input. Let the Spy Man also know that the BLP can bring spying or espionage charges against for he spied when they were in power; there are no limitations for the act of spying. Peter make sure you get your T&T passport soon.


  19. To Miller:
    I would have you know that Caswell is a former member of the waterford university, and may take objection to that remark about deep ties with the act of buggery.

    “The conclusion one can draw from this thread is the fact that a tremendous amount of money is being wasted on education here in Barbados. My dog in my backyard has more sense than almost all who are writing on this thread and he didn’t go to Harrison’s Collage or UWI.”

    You see what I tell ‘bout that glass house you live in! A few months ago you were on this blog bragging that your wife and daughter were students of the University of the West Indies. Now you lambasting UWI students and comparing them to your dog. You know what you did Carson, you have included your wife and daughter, who are UWI students, in your “dog in the back yard and educated idiots” analogy.

    I hope your wife read the blog and put you in the dog house. But then again you would be at home with the dog, because you are not an educated idiot and you have identified your dog as having more sense that UWI students. Carson and Ca-DOG-an together in the dog house. Wuh loss!!!


  21. @ lemuel | December 12, 2011 at 6:44 PM |
    Are you suggesting that it was during his stay at this august institution he forcefully acquired the skill of shooting from behind a fence at the rear of the school? I would bet my last bottom dollar that you did not attend the university of waterford. You are not well rounded enough in your views of life to have passed through those gates and climbed those stairs. But then again there will always be some who fail to live up to the motto and remain hiding in the closet just like your colleague caswell.


  22. @ lemuel | December 12, 2011 at 6:38 PM |

    Leave Mia out of this. She is a loyalist. Ask OSA! Besides, the poor woman has had too much of her own to deal with this year alone. Ease off and focus on the backstabbing incompetents who are managing the affairs of our government.


  23. Without a palace coup
    Without a cadres poll
    Without a silent PM
    Without an ambitious youngster
    Everybody knew that the DLP was doomed to failure.


  24. The Prime Minister is a man of intelligence, and integrity. That alone will bring out the wolves. This “attempted coup” was ill advised, ill timed and clearly not thought through. The relevant knees will be cut off “in due time.”. The media has achieved its aim, plenty chatter, plenty speculation, and plenty sales. Antz and miller…kudos for your contributions. Our political and economic history is being written as we speak, with a similarly sordid past as a reference point. Correct action by our leader will render this blatant and bastardly insubordination a futile attempt at folly. Country first, people after, party naturally and inevitably follows. Principle and philosophy over personal gain and partisanship. FS now has the advantage on the party and national chess board…..will it be check or checkmate? “time longer than twine.”


  25. To Miller:
    I sorry I could not defend the university of waterford, but before long one of its illustrious ones shall fix you. Remember the gays and homos from there are respected as human being they are not shunned. That is one thing you can say about the old boys and girls from Combermere.


  26. Off Topic.

    I have consistently said that the last 3 years or so have witnessed the dimunition of good political leaders across the globe; they are few and in between. Follow this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-16150384. Can you imagine that you are by stealth gaining information and now speaking about diplomacy for your drone to be returned? Madness.


    • Come on guys, we have serious issues at play. Show by your comments that there is some recognition about the weighty issues which confront us.


  27. (1) On Friday Parliament will meet to discuss a’Tax Bill’

    (2) Ronald Jones consistently acts at Prime Minister in the absence of PM Stuart


  28. Anyone can fool the Nation newspaper.

    All you have to do is to email certain people at the Nation with some thing that sounds sensational knowing full well that they will not do any type of checks and the next day it is headline news.

    What list?

    There is no list!!! It was all prank pulled on the Nation newspaper to further discredit it. True to form they ran with it and as they say the rest is history. The Nation newspaper can be relied upon to continue to mislead Barbados Labour Party members and supporters.

    Move along people there is nothing to see here.

    Hahahahahaha


  29. @David
    weighty issues are not for everyone. If all is true as said then then the stability of a country, not a party is at risk.


  30. To show some level of solidarity, the government M.P ‘s must come together and make a statement showing support for the P.M, failing to do that will mean there is some truth in what is rumored or better still being discussed.


  31. @ The Scout
    What rumour what!! Stupse it is FACT, you mind CCadogan ’bout prank. Cadogan as an insider should tell BU who commissioned the poll and why its release now.


  32. “lemuel | December 12, 2011 at 7:42 PM |
    To Miller:

    You probably got one on board and you don’t know it. Self aggrandizement or self-mutilation was not part of the “Religione, Humanitate and Industria” curriculum, dear old Harry Sealy (RIP) would agree that it was “Up and On” and don’t bend down.


  33. Since you guys (and gals) know so much about the workings inside the DLP, How come none of you are able to name the eleven ‘rebels’?


  34. @Cornwell

    Why remove the intrigue or decrease the value of 1 of the 11 breaking ranks and coming clean with the PM and Barbados. Do you know the world over that whistleblowers are highly respected even if not by their own?


  35. Antz

    There more probable reason is that the campaign financiers (the st.peter boys) won’t finance with FS as the PM given that he is not capable of being bought outright. The DLP should tell those funders to piss off, the word on the street anyway is that they have returned to OSA and the BLP with offers of big, big money.
    ********************

    Lets hope the coppers find its way to the right account this time


  36. Ok people round two will be a series of Lawsuits against the NATION NEWSPAPER for libel and defamation of character.

    Just as with the St. George Secondary School pornograhy myth!
    The Nation newspaper loss that time around and they will loose this time as well.


  37. @CCC

    If that does happen, by that time the DEMS will be writhing in pain some where on the opposition benches. After all you know that justice in Barbados while being sure could be quite slow.


  38. To Island:
    Why are you cussing for trying to help Carson Cadogan. He is a man who needs friends at this time, and as I told him I do not care who cuss. Island leave muh nuh and let me assist the man.

    To Carson Cadogan:
    You and Clone and that crowd made the Nation newspaper publish the full list and pictures of the eleven rebels or Dems in a hurry to get rid of Stuart. I do not know how I can help now with this thing so wide in the open.


  39. To Miller:
    Are you trying your best to tell me that your boy friend is from cawmere. I leave you to Caswell and that crowd form that waterford institution. Harry sealy shall always be a good man, and a role model to many including those at cawmere.


  40. FREE MONEY, FREE MONEY, FREE MONEY.

    Starcom network paid Muscle Mary $6000.00 for one wrong question.

    Let us multiply eleven by $60000.00 that is somewhere in the vacinity of $660,00.00 and counting. Plus Lawyer fees.

    The Nation newspaper walked right into the trap.

    Let the Nation newspaper produce its “evidence”.

    FREE MONEY, FREE MONEY, FREE MONEY.


  41. We do not have the luxury of a caretaker PM given the state of the local and world’s economy; and no one in the DLP has demonstrated the ability to effectively lead the country!

    The current PM seems to duck all of the difficult issues in favor of entertaining tourist visitors at his residence.

    Enough time has gone, since the passing of the former PM to allow the current PM to demonstrate strong leadership and deal with some of the critical issues.

    The strategy seems to be to pass the ball to Sinkler and a number of other ministers to steer the rudderless ship and for the PM to function in a diplomatic role.

    This approach will not get the job done!


  42. What they the rebels have succeeded in doing is ensuring that they can not ever try this move again. Stuart shall be PM now until he decides to leave and that shall only be by way of the ballot box. None of them can even in the dark make comments about Stuart’s leadership again. they have just made him the maximum leader and I know he is enjoying that status right now. Stuart is very familiar with these moves remember him dealing with Thompson.
