A DEM View Of the Recent CADRES Poll

Prime Minister Stuart eases pass Arthur in recent CADRES Poll

Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart eases pass Opposition Owen Arthur in recent poll – photo credit: Nation newspaper

According to the latest Cadres Poll, Freundel is out front. Wow!!! With that said, the DEMS must, therefore, press home the advantage as a result of our favourable showing.

However, I am somewhat sceptical about Wickham’s findings, that despite the fact that Freundel is ahead of Arthur, the DLP is still marginally trailing the Bees. I wonder if it is a case of who pays the piper, calls the tune! We all know the obvious bias of the Nation Group of companies. But, however you analyse the poll, it’s a body-blow for the Bees.

I am no political scientist, but I believe I have more than a modicum of common sense. It stands to reason, and rightly so, that if Freundel has surged ahead (in my humble opinion, he was ahead for some time) he would consequently bring along the DLP.

So, it must have been heart-wrenching for the Nation and the know-it-all Wickham, the avowed nemeses of the Prime Minister, to admit that Freundel Stuart is ahead of ‘Owing Arthur’ in their latest poll. Only last month, they were arguing it will be a landslide for their side. This must be a bitter pill for them to swallow.

The DLP cannot be attracting MASSIVE crowds at every turn, and still be trailing. Look at the West Terrace meeting. The struggling Bees said we had only 4,000 last Friday night. Well, if that is how they estimated it, from here on in, we will be attracting as much as 20, 000 at all of our remaining mass meetings. Lord have mercy!!! Can you imagine the PEOPLE? As they say, it would be like Federation. You do the math – which venue will hold the people?

For some time, and I see it day after day, night after night, the people of Barbados have been warming to Freundel; not only Dear Loving People, but a cross section of Barbadians – even reasonable Bees. And, do you know why? He is DECENT. They don’t have any dirt on him. No scandals, no cussing, no infelicities – just a calm, cool, steady and astute leader.

We have constantly reminded the public what Harold Wilson said decades ago in Britain (1964) ‘a week is a long time in politics’. Remember, the Bees were beating their hollow chests a few months ago. So, we have to stay the course, and be on the attack. The BLP will not take these poll results ‘lying-down’. Those guys will go on the offensive and will be ultra-aggressive. Lies, accusations and dirt will rain down on us, as only the Bees can dish out.

I guess the last poll was done more than a week or so ago – because I detected a more sober-sided and restrained Wickham, while he hosted Brass Tacks recently – and I suspected his findings weren’t very self-satisfying. If the poll were done between last Wednesday and Friday, we would have gone clear. But, you know what! My reading of the mood of the people is: WE HAVE GONE CLEAR. IT’S NOW A SPRINT TO THE FINISH

So, as the momentum grows, we have to be vigilant. Stick to our message, and attack them and counter-attack them without offending the sensibilities of voters. We have to be like the proverbial Boy Scout – Be Prepared! Remember, to be forewarned is to be fore-armed.

With God’s help, we won’t be the ones seeing red come Thursday night. COME OUT AND VOTE, AND URGE EVERBODY YOU ENCOUNTER TO DO LIKEWISE – VOTE DEMS, VOTE DEMS ALL DAY.

Now, as far as ‘Owing’ Arthur is concerned, we have to go after him as a failed leader. Since the BLP has been promoting leadership as an issue, we must continue to dissect Arthur’s leadership, his mismanagement and his abuse of power when he was at the helm.

There are countless instances of his autocratic and ruthless style and his impetuous temper that left scores of Barbadians not only scared stiff of him but also offended, hurt and devastated. Too many persons were paralysed with fear of OSA, to the extent they became immobilised. We have passed that point; we cannot go back to arrogance and oppression. Those days are behind us. WE WON’T GO BACK.

It’s senseless returning to warm-over, greasy soup. The old people always tell you such a diet isn’t good for your stomach; it gives you Montezuma’s Revenge – aka diarrhoea – ask the wind-up doll, Muscle Mary.

  1. The point here is not the substance of this note.If I am being told that it is innocuous,then a reasonable question would be why did Mr.Arthur deny its existense?The reason you can all posit.John public too has its own opinion.


  2. @ Damani…Would it not serve a very useful purpose if one of you guys who were so visible here on BU all last week just offer a response to Dr. Estwick’s presentation?


  3. A doormat does not spend hundreds of thousands to continue being a doormat. It is a common sense thing. The party faithfuls continue to be set up, there is a sucker born every minute. Ask Mia Mottley.


  4. I really don’t have the time right now, but I have a piece of correspondence with Arthur’s hand writing, am no expert, but I will compare and see if this is not another one of Stuart’s sneaky tricks to once again mislead the taxpayers.


  5. @ millertheformerneutral…Where have I taken the name of the Lord in vain?Mine was an honest and most sincere conversation with the Lord I once served whole heartedly.Do we now need permission from you guys to do such? If my prayer is answered then the word vain becomes applicable only in relation to the miller’s veiled attempt to have us deny the obvious.{you is a undercover drone}Yes I would prefer the Dems to win,but if all I got was the defeat of Owen Arthur,Noel Lynch and George Payne,from the mountain top Hammy Hill shall gladly proclaim VICTORY.


  6. @ David ..No he will not…and he never does.They call him.At sometime he or the economic maestro Clyde Mascoll has to shoot down the kite that was launched by Jepter Ince and then staked out by Dr.Estwick.


  7. Owen Arthur says, “The BLP is in the process of rebuilding. To win a government while you are rebuilding is always going to be a stretch.”

    People of Barbados let them rebuild in the opposition, not during these difficult times.


  8. Isn’t the BLP still fractured? I think so…..

    Arthur says “I was prepareed to say the BLP family was fractured, and also when repairs had been complete.”

    During the campaign Barney Lynch told the people of St.Joseph that Dale Marshall could be the Deputy Prime Minister in the next BLP government. Hear how Owen Arthur describe that comment.

    Arthur says, referring to Lynch comments as a bump in the road. ” There is always an occasional hiccup during a campaign,” he said “we might have had one that may have influence the polls. The poll was taken at a time when we were on the back foot because of some statements made by one of our candidates in relation to the future of the party.” Arthur further opines. ” We are satisfied that the public is concerned about that issue.”


  9. @ HAMILTON HILL | February 18, 2013 at 11:00 AM |

    The miller also had a sincere talk with the Lord called Elohim and he said that he has reviewed your list of BLP rogues and vagabonds for political assassination and will add (with the kind and fair permission from the guy on Morality Hill called Hammie) the following:
    Michael lashley, the money launderer;
    Dennis Lowe, the lowdown contract kickback kid
    Chris Sinckliar, the King Kong of Liars.
    Donville Inniss, the king of porn and baron of bestiality holding the patent on paternity testing.

    The same way Owen could swap Mia for the Eager 11 with The man of Integrity we can do a similar deal with your Lord Croupier called Medici.
    After all, “do fuh do ent nuh obeah”.


  10. most people must have to the concconclusion having reading that notethat OSA is not normal . something got to be wrong with the brain. for such actions are out of the realm of normalcy. to think he would give the opposition that kind of ammunition is mindboggling


  11. @ ac | February 18, 2013 at 12:19 PM |

    So Peter Wickham is now embraced by the DLP as the once prodigal black sheep now returned to the camp as their blue eye boy from whose backside the Sun is now shining?

    Is he the same pollster who only 4 months or so ago came under a barrage of vilification and abuse from you ac wishing to put a pole up his wide asshole?

    Barbados has a date with its economic destiny is on a collision course with reality.
    We shall see if the DLP is reelected how Freundel the High Priest of Integrity climbs down from his “Not under My Administration Privatization” pulpit.

    But then again he has a few bishops and deacons to lie to the people that the DLP never dismissed Privatization as an option to “diversify the economy, create a culture of black entrepreneurship and enfranchise Barbadians with a greater involvement in the ‘commanding heights of the ‘black’ economy”.


  12. Let’s analyse the note
    “I sent a note to you by Hal Gollop to the effect that I will not get involved in your affairs. That stands.
    I know only too well what is involved in holding a party together.
    You can help me by taking Mottley.”
    Did Mr Stuart ask for Mr Arthur assistance in solving a problem? Most likely he did hence the respossnse,“I will not get involved in your affairs. That stands.”
    Mr Arthur then in all probability tries to offer support to him (Mr Stuart) by stating “I know only too well what is involved in holding a party together”.
    We all know that Mr Arthur is very witty thus “You can help me by taking Mottley.” As he says it was light banter.
    Is this an election issue?
    Please tell us how you plan to fix this junk hole that we are in.


  13. As fuh ac i not all that excited by the POLL. cause wickham got he ass to cover.it is evident that he saw which way the wind was blowingall this polling by wickham is just a game of one man upmanship


  14. Watching wrote “As he says it was light banter.”

    Blullstiitt.

    Owen expressed exactly what he meant.This is his fuddle duddle moment.
    Sargeant and Pat understands.

    Happy family day to my fellow BajCans.


  15. @ac
    It appears as if the poll was flawed, Mr Wickham told the Nation about and offered to redo it free of charge, but they refused and still went to press with it.
    That is why Mr Wickham had to redo the poll. By the way it was done while he was out of the country.
    Two friends of mine were polled and what I gathered is that the respondents could not give the answers they want to give because the interviewer stated they must respond according to the pre-set answers on the questionnaire.


    • That’s why i was telling you all to wait until the problem was corrected.

  16. @Hants that your opinion and I accept as such. No need for the strong language because my opinion differs from yours. By the way how is this debate about the note going to help us out of this “junk hole” have not heard anything yet from Mr Stuart to that effect. All that he and his team are going is finding fault with the Oppostion hoping that we would be side-tracked by all the long talk. Maybe Hants you can lend him a hand in solving the situation or at least offer some suggestions.


  17. Now to add insult to injury “a flawed poll” what de fuc..k. I hope fuh wickham sake that story about a flawed poll is not true cause it can cause much damage to his credibiltyu which most see as questionable.


  18. Speaking of the “flawed poll” but then a new poll with confusing results would only help to mobolise the DEMS with a vengance killing two birds with one stone which can end the career of wickham and OSA


  19. Watching wrote “Maybe Hants you can lend him a hand in solving the situation or at least offer some suggestions.”

    If you have been reading BU you would see that I joined others in making viable suggestions that include..

    Food security,stopping the importation of gas guzzling vehicles, importing Hybrid and Electric vehicles, building solar and other energy plants to reduce the dependence on imported Oil etc.etc.

    But wunna want everything that we can buy up here. But when the (economic)hurricane come…

    Read this in Nationnews. “Owen Arthur said “I’ve given Mia Mottley more opportunities to rise in Barbadian politics than anyone else,”

    Really Owen. You have given her?

    My interpretation is… But she failed so I had to take back the leadership of the party because she does not have the acceptance of the Barbadian hypocritical public.”


  20. @Hants
    My apologies! Your ideas are laudable however we have a very serious current account problem. We cannot pay our bills without borrowing from the NIS each and every month to cover these recurrent expenses. By way government is collecting more monies in taxes and dues now than ever before yet we CANNOT pay our monthly bills and these are not expenses for capital projects. Help them please!


  21. I simply cannot understand what’s the fuss about. I see a ‘note’. no date, so name that was supposedly delivered by a scribe. If I was a lawyer, I would have ensured the letter to to forensic tested and it was from the recipient. Third and fourth party submission no good. Suppose you was set up Mr. PM?


  22. Tell me why
    You are making sense. This silly note is only a red herring that is of great significance to dummies——-but then again, most of the populace is of that ilk!
    But all is going well. This is the Bajan portion of the lead up to the events of Rev 17 & 18. Quite amazing


  23. Let us compare OSA’s note to the 17 point indictment Freundel Stuart wrote on David Thompson. Freundel Stuart is in no position to pull down OSA bearing in mind what he wrote on DT was worse.

    David Thompson for President of the DLP 2005 Delegates
    “The Decision is Yours”
    50th Annual Conference of the DLP

    1. From1994-2001, David Thompson lead the DLP with a free hand to do as he saw fit. Did we not end up with the unusual act of the people of Barbados voting against the opposition in 1999?

    2. Where is the IMF letter supposedly signed by Owen Arthur which was to be produced in Queen’s Park?

    3. Where is the St John Development Plan?

    4. Why was there a mass exodus of several of the candidates who ran in both the 1994 and 1999 elections?

    5. Why would a number of former candidates who are still members never want to take part in an election again under the leadership of David Thompson?

    6. Why was a BLP member Delisle Bradshaw [resented to the DLP as a candidate instead of Undine Whittaker in St Michael South East in 1999?

    7.Why was Patrick Todd not permitted to run in the City as the preferred candidate in 1999?

    8. With all the supposed financial attraction in 1994 and 1999, why is it that the party is highly indebted after these two lections?

    9. By whom and why were the seats already lost by the DLP in the 1999 election declared vacant?

    10. Why was our manifesto of 1999 distributed 48 hours before Polling Day of January 20th?

    11. Can anyone explain why the supposed most popular national figure as DLP leader save only two seats in the 1999 general election?

    12. What has transpired since the resignation of David Thompson six weeks before the 2001 Annual Conference to encourage me or you to want the member for St John to lead us any where at this time?

    13. What level of commitment has the member from St John given to the Administration of the party or support offered to the Parliamentary group to justify support to become President and Chairman of this party at this time?

    14. Do we want to return to the days of internal hate, in fighting blood letting, cursing and ruling by division?

    15. Can we expect a sudden resignation again from the post of President if the member for St John is not soon made the leader of the opposition by the six sitting members in Parliament?

    16. Can we expect to ask for the support of the voters of Barbados if we present them a leader which they so clearly rejected in 1999?

    17. THINK!! Would you want the candidates already selected replaced?

    Vote for Stability and Continuity
    Vote Freundel first on August 21st
    Keep Freundel Stuart President of the DLP
    ……………………………………………………………………………

    So Freundel knows about stabbing people in the back! After what he did to the now dead king, tell me Freundel, you really got the gall to criticise OSA!


  24. Tell me Why

    Owen Arthur is being bated !
    If the note was not authored by him…..only he can deny it !
    Owen Arthur has a penchance for calling on his legai team ( he even did it during this 2013 campaign ) . If the note has nothing to do with him……let him put his legal team to work !

    Imagine MAM reads this note and realised it was authored by OSA when he was telling her……she was the sweetest rose in the BLP !

    Oh how FRACTURED they are !!!!


  25. Is David Thompson the new Elvis? I thought Thompson was dead but apparently there have been several sightings of him in Barbados.


  26. Prodigal Son,

    Your horse, OSA , while on a morning gallop around the Garrison (all by himself) fell and broke his foot.

    There is no coming back for him……he has to be put down.
    Freundel will put him out of his misery…..tomorrow night will be good time start !

    GANGNAM STYLE !!!!

    Stay tuned


  27. @ Sargeant | February 18, 2013 at 3:45 PM |

    Good one, Sarge!
    ‘Some do like it hot’ whether dead or alive in Dad’s Army, you know old boy!
    We are most amused at your British sense of humour.

    Trust you can handle their humorous sexual innuendo in most meanings conveyed, if you know what I mean, ‘wink, wink’, ̀Allo!, ̀Allo!

    Now Carry on smartly, Sergeant!


  28. If the bees are really serious about having MIA as leader the one person whom many belives is the right person for the job. they would have to get rid of the gang of five on Thursdaythat would secure her chances of becoming the potential leader and PM In the not too distant future. with them around her chances are virtually nil.


    • Don’t worry ac she will become the first woman PM in B’dos sometime before the end of this BLP term finishes and she will have her own two terms. This will make you happy i am sure.
      Sent from my BlackBerry® device from Digicel


  29. When was this note written? In 2010 in the height of the fracture between Mia and Owen? In any case, the date is inconsequential because it seems to be a joke.

    What I’m curious about is what caused Owen to restate that he wants nothing to do with Frendel’s affairs and that he knows how to hold a party together. It sounds like Frendel had problems that he publicly stated he did not have.

    However, the eager 11 wrote a detailed letter about why exactly they wanted to get rid of Freundel Stuart. That was written while the party was in government (not in opposition) they claimed they never had problems because of it and never publicly mended fences. Just saying.


  30. “boy MIA has her work cut out for her .having to choose between love of her party and RESPECT for herself”
    POIGNANT COMMENT AC BUT LAYING YOUR BIAS ASIDE WOULD THIS NOT APPLY TO MR DENIS KELLMAN AND MR DAVID ESTWICK BOTH LOYAL AND WORTHY REPRESENTATIVES OF THE DLP WHO WERE BOTH KICKED ABOUT BY MR THOMPSON PARTICULARLY MR KELLMAN AND DID YOU CARE TO IGNOE THE PUBLIC SPECTACLE OF A NOCONFIDENCE MOTION BY HIS OWN PARTY REAN AND OH BO ACMR DAIDA AL


  31. @Damani

    the note was not written in 2910, But does it matter when it was written. The crux of the matter is that ur party leader is judas iscariot, plain and simple..


  32. The note from Owen to Fruendel offering to traffic Mia to the DLP is fatal to his ambitions to be PM again. This is the height of conduct unbecoming of elder statesman seeking to be PM again.


  33. All good and decent BLP supporter should send OSA a message by staying away from the polls on Election Day.


  34. @AC

    it is clear that the blp is following the dlp stratgies. This morning on my way out, i noticed that the dlp had the natioanal colours wrapped around some poles, They look real sweet, This evening i saw pieces of red cloth not properly wrapped around the poles. one can tell that they have been hurriedly done. Further on the same poles where the blp cloth is wrapped, i see some dlp pictures to the bottom of some of the poles. Hope that they were not torn down.


  35. TTP; You are really good at spinning. The whole affair of the Note shows clearly that the Judas Iscariot in the matter was Freundal jerome Stuart NOT Owen Arthur. Owen Arthur wrote him a note, that to all accounts and purposes, was confidential. The note appears to have been primarily about the Eager 11 affair and OSA promises to keep out of that affair. Then in finishing off the note he indicates that FS could TAKE mottley. Nte that he is not offering FS MOttley since Mottley could not have been his to offer. He says you could take her. Doesn’t that connote to you and your followers that negotiations were in train between Mottley and FS for her to go over and Owen was merely saying (perhaps in banter) take her isf you want.

    FS was the Judas Iscariot here as he himself published part of the contents of a confidential note for the filthy silver of electoral gain knowing full well that the note had nothing to do with Owen offering Mottley to FS.

    Ask him to publish the full note with Owen’s signature and the portion that is left out. Then we can talk.


  36. @Hants

    it was more than bullshit. Thats the nature of the man, he is deceiving, disgusting, despicable, dilusionary. He cusses every body, thats the man that cuss stephen alleyne and few hours after he had a heart attack.

    Thats the man that contributed to the low moral in the public service, by determing who whould be promoted or not, under the guise of public sector reform. Thats the man who wasted about half a billion od eduteckway and what do we have to show for it.

    ,


  37. TTP; the wrapping of cloth by the DLP appears to be the DLP playing follow pattern. At least in my area the BLP had the red wrappings up long ago. As in everything of consequence in this campaign the DLP is playing catchup. The only thing they are’nt playing catchup in is discussing programmes in depth on their platforms as they are concentrating on lying on or misrepresenting Arthur and hoping some of the mud will stick.


  38. Balance times have changed or haven.t you notuice this election is all about ethics .no more banana republic ways if doing this. this election must be having a lot of the ole politicians feeling lucky cause a political revolution is taking place turning an about face from the politricks of yesterday. for some this is just the begining.


  39. AC and TTP; The only forward looking discussion offered so far on the DLP platform has been Estwick’s presentation on the Economy and the proposals for Alternative energy programmes that are merely slight additions on the ongoing programmes left by the BLP. All else has been froth, horse teeth, bare pooch cats, etc.


  40. Check-it Out

    You have a pumpkin on your shoulders. It can be a confidential note and a bit of banter/joke (Owen’s words) at the same time knucklehead. If it was a joke then it does not have the air of confidence about it.

    It is a foolish mistake by a man who cannot resist even manipulating those whom he had already wronged. He has no moral minimum and probably never deserved to be a Prime Minister in the first place.

    He is a national embarrassment to all good, decent and right thinking Barbadians.


  41. @ Rendered Assistance | February 18, 2013 at 5:10 PM |

    For real!
    Fumble must have real dirty and sordid secrets on OSA’s dealings to shut him up so suddenly.
    Because OSA knows some dark and open secrets about Fumble.
    OSA knows that Fumble dick Stuartie was a private student of Cammie Tudor, an openly gay man with whom he spent many long hours at his knees and extended conversations over the phone (by Fumble’s own admission).

    He, OSA, also knows that Leroy Sonny Pokey Parris a well known botsy mechanic aka buller and bullee is a very good long standing bosom buddy of Fumble (by Fumble’s own admission). Dead David would not have disowned Greenverbs or even with big dick Dopey looking on waiting for his turn.

    No wonder the man Fumble dick is a confirmed sexually indecisive bachelor. But it requires just one spermatozoa and the right time in a moment of sexual experiment to prove one’s manhood to be a father of a child from an unwed mother.
    Fortunately, lesbians are more easily provided for at the sperm bank and with an injection of sperm from an unknown source.

    Come on OSA, you are known to get dirtier than what Fumble has thrown at you.
    Seethru, you need to get in the gutter and expose the blasted bulling liar calling himself Mr. Clean from Integrity Ville instead of Buller’s Avenue.

    The electorate has to decide between a lying drunken thief who can manage the economy and a pretentious lying closet buller who keeps company with other bulling thieves but does not know his elbow from his arse where management of our frail and vulnerable economy is concerned.

    Now don’t be hypocritical since a similar sexually oriented moral litmus test is applied to MAM.


  42. @Check- it Out

    So FJ Stuart is Judas eh? That biblical reference got me thinking now who is Pontius Pilate? None other than OS Arthur who tried to wash his hands off the whole affair.


  43. @check it out

    refute what estwick presented. he unmasked the lies and freudel show what a scamp owing is. Lord come fah yah world. One should have confidence in a pm, but then again he did not respect beverley.


  44. @ Hants | February 18, 2013 at 6:49 PM |

    Because the miller speaks the truth.
    The same way that Leroy Parris is a long standing friend of Freundel the miller also knows longstanding pals of both Freundel and Cammie Tudor.
    Get my drift?
    Freundel has laid down the integrity gauntlet and he has to deal with the sword of truth which will reveal his hidden closeted past.


  45. @ millertheanunnaki so can we use the Canadian standards recently reinforced by the new Premier of Ontario who has declared that she is proud to be the first OPENLY LESBIAN Premier of Ontario?

    Will we now expect that the closets will be opened and homophobic,anti gay,anti lesbian, Bajans will accept that our future leaders may lespian baconeaters and botsytechologists?

    Barbados needs a dose of liberalism or not.


  46. THE ECONOMY NEEDS OWEN ARTHUR.
    STRAIGHT !
    ALL THE STUPID TALK AINT GOING TO FIX THE ECONOMY
    STUART AND HIS GOONS HAVE NO CLUE


  47. @AC

    what a desperate group? Are they the siad persons that said they have nothingto do with CBC. Again u cant tek owing seriously, such a blasted liar. a drowining man will catch at a straw,


  48. TO THE POINT, you and AC going to know what is desperate in a few hours. about 4 hours. then it starts.

    i warned you jokers not to pull at the lion’s tail. now man up and face the lion.


    • The new poll is out, interesting reading. 22 – 8 in favour of he BLP….. And O.S.A is 5 points ahead. I told you to wait. Thanks for your patients.


  49. @Just Asking 7.35pm
    I agree 100% with your position and conclusion.The Dems are clueless as to how to manage our resources and are notorious for Lies,Deceit and Nastiness.

PERMIT ME TO POSIT THAT IF I WERE VOTING IN THURSDAY’S ELECTORAL CHARADE PASSING FOR DEMOCRACY, THE NOTE WOULD DEFINITELY NOT IMPACT ON HOW I VOTE. IN MY VIEW AND PERHAPS MINE ALONE,THE ‘NOTE’ IS COLD SOUP WARMED OVER UNLESS IT IS OF RECENT VINTAGE. THE VOLATILE FALLOUT BETWEEN MR ARTHUR AND MR MOTTLEY WAS BITTERLY AND VICIOUSLY VENTILATED IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN FOR OVER A YEAR TO THE EXTENT THAT THE SPILL OVER TO THE ANNUALCONFERENCE ALMOST FRACTURED THE BLP HENCE THE COINING OF THE APT ACRONYM ‘FRACTURED BLP’ YES, THE ‘NOTE’ DOES SPEAK TO MR ARTHUR SUGGESTING TO MR STUART ‘TO TAKE MOTTLEY’; BUT IT ALSO SPEAKS TO MR ARTHUR SENDING A MESSAGE TO MR STUART THROUGH HAL GOLLOP TO THE EFFECT THAT” I WILL NOT GET INVOLVED IN YOUR AFFAIRS”. IT GOES FURTHER ” I KNOW ONLY TOO WELL WHAT IS INVOLVED IN HOLDING A PARTY TOGETHER”.
    I COULD BE WRONG MR FRACTURED, BUT THIS COMMENT IS INSTRUCTIVE. IT SUGGESTS TO ME THAT THERE WAS SOME PREVIOUS COMMUICATION/EXCHANGE/BANTER BETWEEN THE TWO CONCERNING THE DIFFICULTIES BOTH WERE EXPERIENCING IN THE LEADERSHIP OF THEIR PARTIES.AT THE RISK OF SPECULATNG BUT IT WOULD NOT BE FARFETCHED EITHER TO CONLUDE THAT MR STUART HAD SOUGHT MR ARTHURS GUIDANCE TO DEAL WITH THE EAGER 11 NOT ONCE BUT TWICE AND HENCE THE RESPONSE FROM MR ARTHUR CULMINATING IN ASKING MR STUART TO HELP HIM TOO BY TAKING MISS MOTTLEY.
    BUT FRACTURED WHY DO YOU WANT ME TO UNEQUIVOCALLY ACCEPT THE WORD OF THE PROTAGONISTS IN THE DLP THAT ALL IS WELL AND FORGIVEN BUT NOT SO IN THE BLP. TELL ME WHY.


  51. Can’t wait to see the backs of these hacks on Thursday February 21st 2013!

  53. But balance the note sheds more light on the man OSA and let people see for themselves not by hearsay but actual evidence the vindictiveness of OSA which can influence their vote questioning wether OSA is worthy of their TRUST and their vote.

    SORRY AC I HOLD NO BRIEF FOR STUART NOR MR ARTHUR BUT RELEASING OF THE NOTE TO DISCREDIT M R ARTHUR MIGHT VERY WELL HAVE BACKFIRED TO MR STUART’S OWN DISCREDIT WHERE INTEGRITY IS CONCERNED. HE IS LAYING HIS INTERNAL PARTY PROBLEMS AT THE FEET OF MR ARTHUR AND THEN BACKBITES MR ARTHUR. YON FREUNDEL HAS A LEAN AND HUNGRY LOOK; SUCH MEN ARE DANGEROUS


  55. Balance have you consider the woman vote those are the people that the note was intended for.most men would not understand what it feels like to be mistreated publicly. But most woman can identify wich her humiliation and there is where the power of the note lies


  56. Though I fully expect the BLP to gain more seats and hence take the government come Thursday / Friday, IF and that is a BIG IF, the DLP won, I would also expect that Chris Sinckler and not Stuart would become PM of Barbados.

    At the minimum BLP would get ten and 11 out of 20 is a majority.It is the person that commands the majority who goes to the GG as PM.

    Biding time and acting at the right time is the key.

    So, whichever way it goes, Stuart will not be PM come Frday.

    So, you should be comparing Arthur and Sinckler, not Arthur and Stuart.


  57. @ac
    Had the DLP called elections closer to the dischord in th BLP, then they would have gone clear. Too much time has passed. Too much window dressing and making up has happened, and the BLP support has converged upon itself completely.

    If the DLP wins it won’t because of any backlash in the female vote.

    Just Observing


  58. Could jokers like “balance” and whoever else is doing it please STOP using CAPS for their entire argument. I will not be reading anyone who types their entire message in all caps
