Submitted by the People’s Democratic Congress (PDC)
In the final paragraph of the BLP’s column in last Friday’s Weekend Nation, the statement is made that “with the BLP, comes realistic hope of returning to the good times it created”, and towards the end of the paragraph/column there is mention made of what amounts to be some slogan: “Rescue, Rebuild, Restore.”
But, what is so duplicitous and disgusting about the use of these words in that final paragraph, is that they were really intended to be used by the author(s) of them WITHOUT the author(s) conveying any real confirmatory meaning to the critical thinker/reader of them.
For, any reasonable, sufficiently recollecting mature person in a position to recall some of the political times of the near 14 years of BLP misrule (1994-2008), must truly scoff at the folly of those childish words, and must truly point to any available evidence that they have to support the view that these are just plain vain empty stupid words being spewed out by the noviciate BLP column writer (s).
Hence, what the PDC will CONTINUE to do, from time to time on BU and elsewhere, is to provide evidence of certain words and statements (positive and negative) that the principals of these old dreaded factions constantly use – whenever they are not at the helm of the government – for the consumption of the average potential/voter, in their attempt to hoodwink as many potential/voters as possible that they are worthy of their votes, but which in the face of many incontrovertible facts will show and prove that these words and statements and their meanings could easily have been used against them when they were in government in earlier times, but which when their principals happen to use them, later on, again, esp. when not in government, would show and prove how lying and deceitful they are/have been, and why therefore they and their parties are not worthy of being elected based purely on what these principal members misleadingly say, or what false criticisms they make of the other party, or the unrealistic promises they make to simply get voter support.
Obversely, what the PDC will CONTINUE to do too, from time to time on BU and elsewhere, is to provide evidence of certain words and statements (negative) that these old musty factions almost NEVER use against themselves, whenever they are at the helm of government, but which, by any serious examination of part of the historical circumstances in which they were governing, would show and prove that – when out of government – their use of such words, statements and their meanings against the other party governing – whether directly or indirectly used – could easily have been applied by they themselves to the times when they were governing, if they had been that truthful and honest enough with the majority of people when governing or not, and instead were not that interested in simply taking turns at applying the same words and statements to the other party that is governing, when they themselves are not the party governing, but which because they ever so wish to get back into government they seek NEVER to USE such words statements and meanings against themselves, even though warranted, but to use such words, statements and meanings against the other party governing simply because their quest is to provide emotional and psychological momentum for their supporters and others towards winning government, thereafter to do similar things in line with the words statements and meanings that they use against the other party governing.
So, the PDC will use the above approaches here and elsewhere to show that the BLP, under Mr. Arthur, Ms. Mottley, Mr. Marshall, etc., and the DLP, under Mr. Stuart, Mr Jones, Mr Sealy, are the same ESSENTIALLY, and are NEVER about providing any hope to Barbadians, or about any rescuing, rebuilding or restoration of Barbados at any time.
So, the fact that the gross government debt went from BDS $ 2.4 billion in 1994, to BDS $ 5.3 billion in 2007 (Dec)(Central Bank’s economic and financial statistics 2008 (Feb), showed that, in this case, the jackass BLP never cared about providing hope to the country, then or in the future. For, they knew that the people would have to bear the repayment costs – costs which they knew would continue to rise tremendously in the country.
So, what foolishness about providing hope to Barbadians, what!!! So realize that the BLP are not going to use the words: “the gross government debt is so alarmingly high”, now, although it is so, since to do so would mean that they would implicate themselves in having played a role – when they were the government for almost 14 years – in this debt having reached unmanageable proportions – for this coming fiscal year this DLP Government is projecting debt servicing over BDS $ 500 million – and would open them up to political scrutiny in the future, with regard to their present plans to increase the gross government debt.
So, Down with the BLP and DLP
