BULeaks#2 – Denis Lowe On The Hook

Minister Denis Lowe (1) Peter Allard (r)

Some may say that BU is ‘picking’ on the Honourable Denis Lowe, he should be assured it is not personal. Unfortunately for Minister Lowe his name is the one most recognized in the McKenzie Files. BU remains hopeful that other prominent names will be revealed soon. It is difficult to fathom that a deep-pocket like Peter Allard – who owns significant assets in Barbados – would not have been able to lure other politicians in to his lair.

The taciturn communications policy of the government gives little hope that the implication of the emails attached will provoke a response from Minister Lowe or the government.

  1. Perhaps to be fair to the government there is no evidence we have found – so far – which suggest that the DLP and government is associated with the act of poor judgement by Lowe. Bear in mind Lowe was a Senator at the time.


  2. “Perhaps to be fair to the government there is no evidence we have found – so far – which suggest that the DLP and government is associated with the act of poor judgement by Lowe. Bear in mind Lowe was a Senator at the time.”
    while you are at it; can you tell me if there is sufficient evidence to link mr thompson with the demise of clico and its responsibilties to its policy ho;lders.


  3. none of you have any idea what you are doing so try not to pretend and shuffle papers around to make it look so.
    you just waiting for lunch and go home and check your offshore bank accounts,useless idiots all or you.go away and find a real job.


  4. What struck me was how they referred to Denis Lowe’s candidacy as a job he is being paid to do and also how they organised to thwart the development of the water park. Fast forward 4 years and we are now lamenting about a stale tourism product with no new attractions and in some cases less including the same anti-Splash establishment.
    They touting of transparency and integrity is also laughable given what we have read on BU.


    • Perhaps the most insightful comment to be found in the two emails:

      “…we want constant info and reports from
      him [Lowe] as to plans, problems, interactions with the DLP caucus and his own staff
      and voters in his riding,” is disturbing.”


    • In any enlightened democracy Lowe would have to explain his relationship with Allard, in places like the UK and US he would probably have been forced to resign by now. We talk about democracy? A joke!


  5. David,
    You shining light on Lowe has him ill again. David Thompson should have fired Lowe and but condoned his behaviour by foisting him on Christ Church East and shifting him from ministry to ministry! But Stuart will not touch him because he is part of his firewall with Sinkliar!!


  6. Has Lowe ever publicly and properly responded to anything? Has he ever given any statement of substance? Is it me or could he be considered political dead weight and only useful for keeping internal number on Freundel’s side?

    Just observing

    But why should this come as a surprise to anyone? For the past 5/6 decades the governance of this country was orchestrated by the grand puppeteers of Cattlewash and the Yacht Club.


  8. Bajans have a perception of Canadian businessmen as “choir boys”.

    They are ruthless capitalist except they smile more than Americans.

    You should also know that lobbying politicians is allowed at every level in Canada.


  9. @Enuff | November 3, 2012 at 7:47 AM | Good point. Have you noticed that after he gets the water park idea closed, Allard the philanthropist in a fit of pique because he was not getting precicely what he wanted, proceeded to close GHNS?

    Frankly, I am torn by the fact that we must protect our ecology, but not at the expense of our people. I therefore have to face the facts that (a) GHNS is in an area between the airport and Bridgetown and therefore prime development; (b) there is talk of a new hospital on Kingsland lands just a short distance away (whether you believe it or not is not relevant, there is talk and therefore smoke which does not exist without fire); (c) ours is a small and densely populated country; (d) our main (really only) resource is tourism, without which we are frankly screwed, since no party seems to wish to address the mess in the courts that has completely destroyed our off shore investment.

    So what it boils down to is GHNS ecology versus income for the good of the people and, of course, for politicians to teef. But Lowe Life was getting his money from Allard and therefore the GHNS that was stilumating the sort of mass interest ascribed to it in the fevered immaginations of Allard and his stooges alone, was allowed to prevail over a water park that would have generated far greater interest and income than GHNS ever dreamed of, except in Allard and Co.’s wettest dreams.

    I am sorry to hear that Lowe is ill again. However, I am comforted by the fact that he can afford the very best medical treatment courtesy of his finishing off the water park, unlike other less fortunate Bajans who may have been able to afford it had there been a water park.


  10. amused your comment shows a lack of understanding and appreciation of how nature works to protect us all the ecology is one of the many important aspects and beauty of nature that provides us with a good and healthy life its helps to protect us from mass devastation when nature has to correct the damages inflicted on earth by humans throught the various ways of polluants the fact that all you can see is dollars signs shows your lack of knoweldge about the ecologolical system and the many benefits given to mankind and changing it or upsetting the way nature has designed it to be for the protection of everyliving species can reaped devastating results in the future you might not be around maybe in another couple hundred years or so but your children childrens would be the ones to feel the warth and fury because some one thought it best that the destruction of the ecological system was worth more than saving it however at some point and time others pay the price because of someones ignorance, there are some things in life money cannot buy and of those things which nature as afforded to us at not cost we should not tinker with but show respect and not disregard .nature designed set plans and knows best and has yet to be proven wrong.


  11. @ ac

    You mean like approving the mining of metal in a residential neighbourhood without comments from the Environmental Department and the TPD and the absence of an EIA? The truth is that the mining of metal and the operation of garbage burning incinerators pose far great environmental threats than a water park.


  12. David wrote “Is it lobbying we are dealing with here Hants?”

    You want me to get sue? I can’t tell you what I really think especially since my identity on BU has been “compromised” since Pat appears to have found out where I come from.

    your above comment is enough evidence as to why man should not upset or tinker with ecocological system as it is serves as a protectant barrier for all living species since man kind has the ability to do and act irresposibilly ,ecological system is not a fluke of nature its ability to protect us should not be taken lightly had not for it with all the natural disaters we have we will all be dead as man is reckless in the choices they make giving no thought about cause and effect .

    • Pat Hoyos is a publisher and business writer.”

    More pearls of wisdom from a Kolijian scholar.


  15. @ac. Did they teach you at Alexandra School how to write a 225 word comment without a single punctuation mark? That would have had to have been in the dark ages pre-Broomes.

    You say, inter alia, “amused your comment shows a lack of understanding and appreciation of how nature works to protect us all the ecology is one of the many important aspects and beauty of nature……” However, I fear that everyone, including you, may well fail to appreciate the beauty of nature if our children, to whom you later allude, are suffering starvation, deprivation and death as a result of sacrificing major tourism potential to the upkeep and preservation of a lot of non-indigenous wildlife, like flamingos. Or even the preservation of indigenous wildlife that exists in other parts of the world anyway. All of which brings few visitors and little (if any) income.

    So, I repeat. I am happy to see all that ecology preserved etc., as long as it does not come at the cost of ours and our children’s well-being. Including their education which would prevent them from writing 225 words without capitals and punctuation.

    I agree with Enuff – completely!


  16. when one look around at natures wrath in the places where the ecological system has been destroyed and replaced with modernisation and urban sprawl one can only conclude beyond a shadow of a doubt who is right and who is wrong as the evedience is there for all to see so amused in conclusion i wish you a happy 225day top off with a punctuation mark !


  17. @ David:

    Do you know if Minister Denis Lowe attended the DLP Ch Ch constituencies branch meeting held on Sunday gone at the Foundation School and at which the PM spoke?

    Maybe Carson the dogged Cadogan can confirm.
    If the miller had any say he would be advising the BLP on its pending return to power to rename that school after the late Sir Harold Bernard St. John.
    That is one memorial trophy Freundel Stuart has his eyes on. But over the BLP’s dead body.

    That call will certainly arouse the sleeping dog Carrion Carson Cadogan!


  18. ac | November 5, 2012 at 5:59 AM |@ac | November 5, 2012 at 5:59 AM | I am looking at places like Monaco and Gibraltar where there are few if any natural resources, but which thrive on their off-shore markets and tourism, unlike Barbados where the judiciary has eradicated the off-shore market and the Chief Justice seems dedicated to making sure it remains dead. I note that Gibraltar has a protected species of apes that are indigenous. And despite the urban sprawl that so upsets you, they thrive. So maybe the lesson is that these species are meant to adapt or to die out, like the dinosaurs. And I am delighted that you have managed to learn some punctuation, even if it is restricted to an exclamation mark. Keep up the good work.


  19. @GEORGIE PORGIE,

    YES I WAS.

    GP ON YOUR COMPUTER, HAVE YOU TRIED HOLDING DOWN THE CTRL KEY AND HITTING THE + KEY TO MAGNIFY YOUR SCREEN.

    IT WORKS FOR ME ON MY LAPTOP AND DESKTOP COMPUTERS.


  20. @ Hants

    what compromised what!?! I did not mention your name nor where you from, nor the 3 houses yuh built down deh, nor yuh curly hair… If I lay muh hands pun yuh, den yuh gine sih compromised. ha, ha, ha.


  21. Amused
    you are missing the point the ecological system is a chain that both human animals and all living organisms are a part of. if those monkeys are living in their natural habitat and the chain is not broken then their is no problem but the problem arrives when the invasion of urban sprawl starts to disrupt and impact their way of lifeand a link is broken you mention adapt we as humans find it very uncomfortable and hard to adapt so what do you think of animals first they become angry and resentful and lots of times they withdraw which usually leads to death and a rapid decline in their species from your advantage what a person see might be adaptation but from the way ecology is designed to sustain and provide for that animal it is in its natural habitat it is disruption and can be destructive.


  22. @ GP and Pat
    Why the two o’ wunna don’t leave Hants alone nuh? Wunna trying to chase Bushie’s only fan from BU?
    Obviously Hants wants to keep a low profile – he real sensitive ’bout the lotta money he got pile up in Canada and Barbados….not to mention that 5- Series Beemer he rocking….. 🙂

    Wait GP, the screen magnifier seem to have worked… The only blogger who could get you to make that change from Caps was Hants. Bushie feel that Hants was your form captain at school..


  23. Hants
    You cheap SOB…..you got money…and never offa to buy Gibber or Miller lil souse, not even send lil $$ for a grog?….MF Bushie got you exposed all bout tonite….


  24. An ecosystem is an interactive and changing system that includes the soil, air, water, plants, animals and microorganisms within in a defined area. It is a natural system in which energy and nutrients cycle between plants, animals and their environment. Ecosystems provide critical services or functions to the environment, known as “ecosystem services”. These services sustain human life and include:
    •critical habitat and many other benefits
    •providing filtered air and water
    •nutrients to soil
    •food sources
    •flood control
    the above supports all that i have said in my previous comments.


  25. enuff i would really like to cut and paste yuh a..a..sss with tar and sit you out in the middle of a wetland. yuh dumb d..k head.

    Does that mean the DLP should rename Combermere after the late David Thompson?


  29. @ Sargeant | November 5, 2012 at 8:59 PM |

    Listen up Sarge, and pay rapt attention.
    Hell will freeze over before that comes to pass. There are over 1,000 names on the list before girly DT can make the grade. Sir Frank, Sir Wesley, Harry Sealy are high on the list. Major Nook received his recognition and commendation but the ‘Cawmere’ family tree has many branches from which to pick the fruits of success, achievement and outstanding commendation.
    Even Onions and Bushie are ahead of the Sweet Cakes or even Clydie.
    The miller begs to decline to partake in any Mafia dealings. (LOL!!!)


  30. @Miller
    It was you who brought up the suggestion that the BLP rename the school after Bree St. John, don’t you think that a school which has celebrated its bicentennial would have produced many outstanding citizens more deserving of the honour?

    If the BLP wants to rename schools it should start with CP, the school could do with a new name I propose the Owing S Arthur Comprehensive.


  31. @ Sargeant | November 5, 2012 at 10:03 PM |

    I don’t believe schools should be named after politicians. They should be named after genuine benefactors, outstanding teachers or some brilliant student of the same school who has made tremendous contribution to national development and community service.

    I was being naughty about Bree St. John and Freundel Stuart both of whom seem to share a similar political path and would go down in history for being gamblers who were both back-raised for being political lightweights, of little charisma and lacking in strategic planning skills.

    Let the Foundation school remain as is or name it after Dr. Bobby Thomas or even after the late Major Barker; (or even Peter Wickham – what a ‘gay’ moment that would be– “gay” used here in its original sense or meaning LOL!!!).


  32. @David | November 5, 2012 at 9:28 PM |
    “No Lowe sighting in recent days.”

    Carson Cadogan must let the BU family know what’s going on here. Denis Lowe’s non-appearance at Sunday’s meeting leaves a number of concerns that must be discussed.

    Is he hospitalized or confined to bed?
    Carson, we need to hear from you, doggone man!


  33. Miller
    Well Bree went to Foundation but I think he also attended HC, but “Peanuts Morrison” is a true Foundationer and you know that Peanuts denied Bree the opportunity to be B’dos PM when Bree was in his prime.

    Peanuts wouldn’t oppose Bobby Thomas as there is a family relationship and you might even get Mascoll to support it as his wife is part of that clan.
    Speaking of names how about naming it after Enid Lynch who was headmistress of the Girls school for many years ( CH CH Boys School or “Water Street” Street is named after her husband Milton) or even Lee Harford Skeete, Major Barker is a newbie.

    Just a little tongue in cheek to show I know a little CH CH history but the Old school names should remain as they are.


    • @Miller

      Are you so genuinely concerned about Lowe on humanitarian grounds?

    IF you had money?!?!

    ….skippa, you was rich from back in HC days.
    The only reason that you poorer than Donald Trump now is because you does spend all your time catching all the people fish…and throwing them back in….if Dat is what you call WUK. 🙂

    “Real-real” rich people does live in Canada, and have a house in Barbados.
    According to Pat, you live in Canada and got THREE houses in Barbados.

    Dat is what ya call rich.


  35. @ David | November 6, 2012 at 9:24 AM |

    The miller also went to Sunday School and one of his favourite tales from the Christian story book of morality was that of the kindhearted man from Samaria. There is still a measure of human compassion that should be shown to those who have gone down the crooked and corrupt path of political life instead of serving the interest of the people.

    Yes, David I do wish him speedy recovery for I would not want to see the forcing of the hand of the PM in another matter. After all, he is the man with the magic date in his back pocket. I leave that up to greater forces outside the realm of our simple understanding of worldly matters. God forbid otherwise!


  36. Bushie wrote”….skippa, you was rich from back in HC days.”

    Rich in intelligence and creative talent but I wasted it instead of following fellas like Dr, GP.

    Doan mind Pat. If I built 3 houses in Barbados I would not be up here wukkin in de cold.

    I would be sippin single malt wid de likes ah you an Miller.
