Well guess who, it is Nomen Nescio again. I found it interesting reading the comments to my post that perverted Roy Morris will be returning to the self-dubbed family newspaper or Nation Newspaper. Thank you David for your comments against those doubting Thomases such as, in particular, Plantation Deeds and BAFBPF or Baffy. I will respond to them at the end of this update.
Since the posting of the article more cutting edge information was received which I felt compelled to share with the BU family. As I first suspected and was confirmed by impeccable sources, the resurrection of Roy Morris was triggered by the Board of the Nation Publishing Company, which as I said before is chaired by that hypocritical Harold Hoyte. We going get to the salacious on him after we deal with the facts of the matter. And I’m going to be fair to all.

The board did not initially set out to hire back Roy aka ‘DOGGIE’ Morris. The board felt that revenue was down and Return On Invest was paramount. So instinctively they said we need to fill the post of Editor-in-Chief with someone who could bring back the coppers (not policemen). So they looked internally and the two most likely candidates from inside were Eric Smith – who now runs the newsroom and Sanka Price, who acts running the newsroom when Smith is on leave. Now some of you were wildly guessing that I Nomen Nescio is either Sanka Price or Eric Smith. I felt grossly insulted when I read that. Eric Smith is a wolf in sheep’s clothing – always take what he tells you with a pinch of salt. And Sanka Price is known as the Sultan of Slime, the greatest ass kisser every born in Christendom. His rise at the Nation has been synonymous with bad talking others and kissing derrieres. A man who would concoct ‘I confess’ articles to increase circulation.
Yes the DLP want some stiff lashes, but Imagine Sanka Price who on two occasions was the editor for Liz Thompson’s campaign magazine when she ran as a candidate, now ‘bout the place pretending that his column is an impartial one and that his criticisms of the government are about the interest of Barbados. Imagine a senior journalist who at the time would have been overseeing the newspaper’s campaign coverage was the editor of a candidate’s campaign magazine. Hold on doah, Liz’s godfather Harold Hoyte, who at the time was the Editor-in-Chief also had his input in her campaign strategy. Yuh mean he couldn’t even say cuh dear Lizzie, uh is yuh godfather but how it going look if I as Editor-in-Chief play a major part in your campaign. Wish she well but have principles. So you all could big up people like Harold Hoyte because you all don’t know better. That mealy mout’ one who want to pretend that he so holy and wash in the blood of the lamb; if yuh ask me he wash in the blood of swine that yuh does mek puddin’ and souse with on Saturdays.
Oh shite the train went off the tracks there for a minute or two. Talk ‘bout digressing. So the board felt that that the bottom line was Return on Investment, looked internally and turned down Eric Smith and Sanka Price. So of course Morris’ name was them placed in the mix. Given that at present he is Editor in Chief of a newspaper, no matter how small, it was felt that this warranted considering. The board felt that he had the skills for the job. So after agreeing that he could do the job, they were confronted with the elephant in the room (maybe I should have said the doggie in the room). How would it look bringing back a man who only five and a half years ago yuh had to fire – yes fire, he didn’t get nuh package I understand– because he couldn’t see the young girls, including interns’ pokeys, (wait yuh could pluralise pokey) and leave them alone. Anyway you don’t find morality in the board room, yuh does find greedy phuckers.
She got she faults but to be fair to Anne Gittens she objected to Morris’ return. And don’t talk bout this was because she jealous, cause back in 2007 Anne was reluctant to fire Roy since she liked how he ran the newsroom and they worked well together. But, the weight of his past, the then allegation and his impending charging by the police was just too overwhelming to keep him in the workplace. And don’t fuhget when Roxanee Gibbs had Roy hiding out Anne knew where he was hiding and visited him at least once, so don’t accuse the woman of being jealous.
Anyway, given that the majority of the members on the Board were looking at the bottom line, or as the young people would say was only interested in ‘paper’, Anne was out-voted. Subsequently Anne threatened to resign and call it a day. It was only because of the persuasion of her husband that she not collecting unemployment cheques today.
Now it will be interesting to see if his departure will result in the closure of the Barbados Today (BT). Very reliable sources say that sometime last year the Nation was approached in an effort to see if they would pay a sum for BT and incorporate it into their corporation. If this happens this is something for the Fair Trading Commission to look at with regards to antitrust practices that deals with monopolies and competition. But then again Kiffin Simpson buying up all the gas stations in Barbados which means soon from now if yuh getting treat bad at one dealer yuh can’t carry yuh business nuh place else, and yet FTC not saying anything. Money talks and bullshit walks.
What would be interesting in the case of Roy and Barbados Today would be if would abandon those workers who he lured away from the Nation. If yuh ask me Roy ‘bout Roy nuhboddy else.
I promised earlier to touch up that one Harold a bit more. Oh shite I shouldn’t really use that phrase in this context. Pieceuhderock (POTR) wrote on July 20 at 12.28 p.m. that contrary to my allusions Harold (people hold him in such high esteem that wunnuh knight he before the GG could lift he sword – if wunnuh only know) has an insipid chuckle and an eccentric way of life. That was very funny and clever POTR. And that he was only interested in big botcy women; uh huh, fool yuh self. Leroy Parris would know though. Who you all think organise for Harold to get he personal money out of CLICO when people ‘bout here praying to get theirs out. Yuh think Leroy only do it because they used to walk every morning a 5 a.m. Wunnuh think wunnuh know this Barbados.
Well Plantation Deed you had quite a few things to say and David actually dealt with you appropriately. But let muh get muh piece David. Plantation you wrote that you were sure that there are more people more guilty than him that still in place wrecking Barbados. So this is the little sin, big sin argument. But you know what for a rape victim your issue might be the little sin and theirs the big sin. I find it interesting that someone like you who is seeking justice would be so comfortable with such skulduggery as rape and repeated targeting of teenage females by a man a man now in his early fifties and someone whose position should engender trust. It tells me a lot.
And yes BAFBPF, better known as Baffy. I must confess your comments surprised me, since you always seem like a person interested in justice, especially in your criticism of governments (including those outside the region). I realise recently though that you were reluctant to criticise the permanent secretaries; I guess you mekking sure your government payments for your business don’t get block. Boy everyone, including you know what to do to survive, even if it means turning a blind eye. I still like when you used to call Brass Tacks. So Roy Morris could be excused because he is an effective Black male? And I am still waiting for you to tell the BU family how Doggie Morris got set up. I agree that rape accusations are always difficult since they are hardly any other witnesses but a rape accusation is not far fetch for someone who targets teenagers and has a history of female harassment.
