Who Blight This Rock?

Amid all the bad news we heard about JetBlue

Am I right or am I wrong, when I say that Barbados like it under some sort of omen? Somehow nothing seems to be going right in this lil rock we call home. Pause a minute though, just nowadays? How long now since we had  the St. Peter’s school teachers and all its embroil?  Plenty bad business that could  draw up quite a long exhausting list. It seems like a never ending continuum. As soon as one down, up pops another. People enough have gone on sabbatical. Sometimes too, like they not coming back,  intentional or not.

So why then are we seeing all these dark shadows and mini horrors? There is talk surfacing that from the time des witches came here and had their convention and séance (up near Sam Lords), bad luck and trouble seems to have beset our gates. Some say they have cast a spell on this once bounteous land.

Seems like we now need to seek out a Merlin to reverse their ominous spells. All this of course if you are superstitious. If you are not, then one must consider what has transpired , in an all out effort to understand why this once time “good girl” Barbados, now turn BADD…

Indeed a tough one…..now don’t say Myrie. LOL

  1. Word is that a resignation soon to be tendered gives Barbados a chance at a second spring.Problem is that the government in waiting is plagued with problems in relation to its structural integrity.Simply put, there are three factions in that party.


  2. What has this to do with JETblue? I’ve reliably informed that JETblue is introducing a new aircraft and its first flight will be Barbados. This new plane has improved seating, which even as it is right now is supirior to A.A. There most be a reason why they chose to introduce the plane to Barbados first


  3. onions,

    You may be right. Nothing seems to be going right in this country, everyday you wake up, you have to wonder what next.

    Today we heard that Mc Enearney will be restructuring and jobs will be lost.

    onions, boy, it pays to cry on TV. One man cried on TV last week saying that he cannot get his projects approved, next thing the de facto PM……Donville Inniss and his sidekick the AG met with the mighty crier and just so these two approved both projects.

    Can anyone tell BU where on earth is the man who is supposed to be the PM of Barbados?
    Is not Town and Country Planning under the PM?
    What right does Donville have to approve planning?
    What right does Adriel Brathwaite have to be dealing with a matter certainly not under his portfolio?
    Who is really in control of this country? Is it really Donville, Adriel (the worst AG we have ever had) or Stinkliar?

    In the meanwhile, the mighty crier gets what he wants! What a country we live in!


  4. Why pontificate about the dark clouds hovering over Barbados.. This was what the people voted for in February 2013..People with money realize that the DLP jackasses would continue to be a disaster so out they went with their money. Tek dat now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Laughing at the Guyanese. Trinis and jamaicans would be a thing of the past. The gun crime has reached our shores.


  5. THE DLP IS A BLIGHT ..I HAVE SAID SO MANY
    TIMES

    HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO PONDER

    AND NO STINK MOUT DLP SUPPORTER CAN REFUTE THIS

    DENGUE, GUNS .H1N1 .SHOOTINGS
    ROBBERIES, WRECKED ECONOMY,
    SHATTERED LIVES, MYRIE FIASCO ,
    PLENTY LIES, MOSQUITOES, COW ITCH , MORE BUSH THAN 60 YEARS AGO, HOSPITAL VIRUS, LAWLESSNESS –AND THE BEAT GOES ON

    WHEN YOU HIDE AND DO WRONG THINGS WITH ORDINARY PEOPLE LIKE BUYING VOTES,
    DO YOU KNOW HOW THAT ENCOURAGES THEM TO DO WRONG AND DO YOU KNOW THE RIPPLING EFFECT IT HAS —


  6. JUST ASKING
    YUH GOT DEM DLP YARDFOWLS ON THIS BLOG UNDER PRESSURE
    FIRE BUN THEM IN THEIR RASS AND THEY PASS——OUT !


  7. Prodigal

    Can anyone tell BU where on earth is the man who is supposed to be the PM of Barbados?

    I think the supposed to be PM may be in Washington using his oratorical best to convince IMF to go easy on BIM


  8. Can anyone tell me why are all/majority of the houses that were built by the DLP are covered with bushes. Our hard earned dollars just rotting away. More of our tax dollars to carry out repairs before they are sold. If it ever reach that selling stage.
    Then again break in an unoccupied housing unit and maybe u will get one of those houses.


  9. RUN THEM OFF THE PEOPLE BLOG
    THEM DLP SYCOPHANTS –OUT OF HERE -YOU IMBECILES

    NO STINK MOUT DLP SUPPORTER CAN DENY THIS


  10. The answer to “who blight this Rock” is simple ….. us!!

    Do you even know the significance of the word Rock as it is used here or are you just using it because you came up and found it in use?

    Figure that one out and you will figure out what we have to do!!


  11. “Am I right or am I wrong, when I say that Barbados like it under some sort of omen? Somehow nothing seems to be going right in this lil rock we call home.”

    OOB, The present MESS we are in as a nation, ain’t got nothing to do with either the BPL or DLP; yes, as respective governments, they have both contributed to the terrible ‘spiritual’ plight we are in, plus each and everyone of US, either to a greater or lesser extent, the ‘Church’ included.

    We have called ‘EVIL’ good, and ‘GOOD’ evil, we have and are promoting wanton, SINFUL* debased, revelry, as a means to generate foreign exchange, CAN’T WORK!

    We hold so-called Church services, in official government splendor, a show of NOTHINGNESS, paying lip-service to Almighty God, then blatantly and arrogantly, DEFYING His Righteous, Holy Name, CAN’T WORK!

    Those who name Christ as Savour and Lord, NEED to repent of their of their lukewarm condition, and get serious with JESUS.

    Those who DO NOT know Jesus as Saviour and Lord, better get Saved, as we ARE approaching the END-TIME of Almighty God’s LINEAR Time table,
    UNLESS, we as a people, individually, as families, and as a NATION, REPENT, TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAY, we are NOT COMING OUT OF THIS FINANCIAL MESS!


  12. On his dying bed, the dead king perpetuated the biggest sin on Barbados……he declared Chris Sinckler the Minister of Finance and this was further perpetuated this neophyte on finance on Barbados. Sinckler has continued to fool Barbadians that he knows what he is doing by his arrogant, bullying, obnoxious stance when challenged.

    That he is totally out of his depth is very apparent. It is there for all to see the state of our economy, he CANNOT continue to blame any recession. You have a government that has taken in more revenue than ever before yet overspend every year:

    2008/2009 Revenue 2.6 BILLION yet overspent by 256 MILLION
    2009/2010 Revenue 2.3 BILLION yet overspent by 557 MILLION
    2010/2011 Revenue 2.3 BILLION yet overspent by 647 MILLION
    2011/2012 Revenue 2.5 BILLION yet overspent by 284 MILLION
    2012/2013 Revenue 1.8 BILLION yet overspent by 260 MILLION

    The problem is other than two bus shelters in Oistins, the still unfinished highway project, the unoccupied fowl coops, I cannot see what all this money was spent on. And yes, the apologists will say they were repaying debt…………give me a break.

    To add to this, the Central bank has been printing money as if it was going out of style. The de facto PM reportedly recently told a business man that things are so bad that they have no other option than to continue to print money. Barbados has now been embarrassed on the world stage having to withdraw a bond tender issued on the international market. What a shame! Can we continue to blame this on a so called world recession?

    No this is a result of a man totally out of his depth. In other words, a monkey handling a gun!


  13. Prodical

    In case you did not read my response to Peltdownman in the Barbados Tourism: Plan versus Actual blog, who said “What is needed is for the Auditor General to tell us where the money is really going.”; I am copying it here.

    “Wouldn’t it be great if the Auditor General COULD tell us where the money is going – or has gone.

    This is from Chapter 1, General Issues, in the Report of the Auditor General for the year 2012.

    “1.2 It has been five (5) years since Government has been switched from the cash to accrual basis of accounting; however, there continue to be considerable shortcomings in the accounts presented which have so far resulted in the Audit Office being unable to verify that the financial statements are presented fairly and in accordance with International Public Sector Accounting standards. There were numerous omissions from the financial statements presented, and these included over $150 million which was owed to the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.
    1.3 Revenue continues to be recorded on a cash, rather than an accrual basis, and numerous items on the balance sheet such as Plant, Equipment and Furniture, and Accounts Receivable could not be verified because of the absence of adequate supporting schedules. There is a need for an urgent examination of accounting currently being practiced by Government since, in many instances, there is no adherence to International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) to which the Government has subscribed. Regrettably, as in previous years, I have to report that my Office could not certify that the financial statements which were presented gave an accurate picture of the financial position and operations of the Government.”

    So the Auditor General CAN’T tell us where the money is going or where it has gone.

    How can anyone trust what the MOF or the GOB say if they cannot keep an accurate set of books?

    How can anyone trust anything the Government says?
    QEH cannot pay $20 million owed to drug suppliers (partners).
    BTA has $13 million of past due payables, according to the MOF in his budget speech. How do we know it is not $23 million, or $33 million.
    How can Government expect to raise money on international markets, when it can’t keep the books?

    This is much worse than DD could have imagined.

    IMF to the rescue please.”

    The problem is of course not totally the fault of the out of his depth MOF, nor wholly due to the global recession, but rather the financial crisis in which Barbados finds itself is the result of the entire Government spending $2 billion (17%) more than its revenue in the past 5 years. The five years of overspending is greater than its total revenue in 2012-2013. And, given the Auditor General’s comments about the inadequacy of the Government’s financial records, the deficit spending may be much worse then has been reported.

    It is obvious that no one in Government or Cabinet, including the business guru Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development ( who is spending his time with Bizzy opening a Burger King) could see this coming.


  14. Due Dilligence

    That is part of the parcel. It has been this way (goverment accounting) since Adam was a lad. If you don’t know what you
    have how do you know what you can spend? Finally things have caught up with us. MOF has now resort to raising the debt ceiling like he is Obama a real stupid move when revenue sources are dis


  15. con’td
    disappearing as tourism and Intl business is on the decline. USA can make such moves as they have resources. Chris buddy all we got is sea water ,people and sand.


  16. @ Due Diligence | October 11, 2013 at 11:13 AM |

    Excellent post, DD

    Did you read my post re the “financial guru” according to your assessment…….where the financial guru and the AG gave the crying business man the approval for the projects he cried that he could not get approved. Mind you this is not the financial guru’s portfolio or the AG. But hey, the PM aint leading, so why not the General Secretary?

    No wonder he was invited to open Burger King!


  17. Prodigal

    Yes I did read it – well said

    BTW, has anybody seen or heard from the Minister to whom Town and Country Planning reports since he left for his one week “private” trip to Canada a couple of weeks ago?


  18. I asked that question of many persons and every one said, we have not heard or seen him neither I have not even seen his official car on the road.

    Maybe he is overseeing the construction of the canopy and installation of the elevator for which $800,000 plus was voted. This is the kind of wasteful, unnrecessary spending of which we speak.

    Illaro Court is only two stories, what is so wrong with the current occupant that we the taxpayers have to shell out over $800,000 to install an elevator and a canopy? What’s wrong with him that he cannot climb a flight of stairs? If he is not well, give up the job as it seems as if he is not in control, Donville seems to be calling the shots!

    Is the installation of a canopy and an elevator a PRIORITY at this point in time? Our backs are to the wall, can the PM not make a sacrifice? Every last man except DEMS, has had to make sacrifices. If it is that necessary, I would have no problem at another time but this delusional Central Bank Governor we have is printing money at an alarming rate and we are still up shit street drowning in debt and unpaid bills.

    Yet according to the worst Minister of Tourism we have ever had and the disc jockey minister, cancelling the football tournament in honour of the dead king was not an option. This tournament cost $600,00 last year, what on earth could cause it to go from $600,000 to $800,000 in one year?

    And I am yet to receive my 2011 tax refund, never mind the 2012 refund. The latest I heard on that was that refunds are ready but the Treasury does not have the money!

    I pray the good Lord hear our prayer and send help for poor Barbados!


  19. Prodigal Son,

    Here is the answer to your question : Who blight this rock ?

    The true answer: Prodigal Son and Owen Seymour Arthur have blighted this rock.

    No wonder , Owen Arthur , is so quiet these days .


  20. Illaro Court is only two stories, what is so wrong with the current occupant that we the taxpayers have to shell out over $800,000

    Does the Prime Minister live at iIlaro
    He must be ILL


  21. If they were smart and he (PM Stuart) is really ill, now is the right time to garner some public sympathy, remember, i said if they were smart, you can’t sympathize if you don’t know.


  22. wuh zoe the churches right up there with govt nuff pomp and pageantry and feeding off the fatted lamb.; show me anything of significance that modern day church has contributed to stemming social ills .anyone can argue that the church is just as or even more corrupt than govt while falling prostrate at the throne of GoD.. .

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Now if you knew your history and had not been brainwashed you would realize Bajans at one time were mostly non – Anglican, …… and did not even go to Church!!!!

    They did not believe in the need for a priest to stand between a person and God.


  24. wuh JOHN BOY guh back to sleep we talking politics here and the church is equally political as govt or even more so …… uh at what time in histry did bajans not go to church,,,,,,maybe i am just a nee bit high,,,,,,,,,,um i meaning the church and its political gangsters are the ones to set moral standards i guess this is what the issue is about in reference to gun violence ..however over the years the church has failed miserably and it s moral compass is brokenand the sheep have gone astray……so then if what you say is true then there is no purpose for the church as it seems according to your little diatrabe everthing was honkey dorey .


  25. Look here you ac and one John……

    DONT TRY TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT…..question is is PM Stuart ill or not?

    Fractured
    Definition of blight (OD) :a disease that causes the subject to wither….. How long now ur rashes been here ? Two terms….now kindly rehash your comment. Festering now …is in plain sight to see even the dreaming pensioner…..Q.E.D


  26. wuh jac assing ..you sound like a real jack ass fuh trute ,, you certain jenkins dismiss you,, or you jump the fence and ran away,, all day long the same B/s maybe sumbody must have put obeah on your bacside cause your sure sound like you got the runnings of de mout,

    …………………………………………………………………………………..
    The Anglican Church was for ever in bed with the plantocracy, and it was the duty of plantation workers,and most of their children to attend the church which was heavily “offer-ined” by their plantation manages / owners,who occasionally attended church,and had reserved pews at the front of the church for him and his family , who very rarely attended church. The back of the Anglican churches were chock- a -block with “Bajans”, and woe betide any son-of- a bitch, who dared to sit in one of those hallowed pews reserved for the plantation manager.
    I know of one radical priest, who on his first Sunday at his new church chided the planter class for continuing this blatant segregation,”Come ,next Sunday”,he said ” I want to see every body sitting together.”
    Next Sunday and there was no problem, because the planter class put an immediate stop to visiting that church, followed by the many “Bajan” in the congregation from surrounding plantations, who went off to other churches,leaving a handfull of aged faithfuls.


  28. ac the lunatic…HUSH……tell us about Stuart. That’s what we want to hear.

    Why has he not returned yet from The land of Maple ?


  29. Note to the DLP’s who are still trying to defend the indefensible………………you can like the truth or lump it but it is a FACT that under OSA, Barbados was respected internationally, it prospered, people went to UWI free, people had access to free health care and medicines, the people developed their lifestyles, the people prospered. We had a building boom, people built proper houses and every body was happy except Dems, it seems! Now you look in the faces of once proud Barbadians and all you can see is despair!

    And Fractured, just for your information, I have never had a government job nor fed off the fatted calf. OSA has EARNED the right to keep quiet and watch the Dems self destruct and in the process destroy Barbados. He has earned the right to say after, I told you so!


  30. @ Prodigal

    If only you knew how much the truth duz HURT……..man they reeling and wriggling like the wretched of the earth. They know all these things and now the people TOO as well…..Days of lies and foolmongering have come home to roost. Even they own that gave them support askin questions. Doan mind that yarr-fowl Fractured….he hurting too ..knowing that they have failed to deliver (anything other than free bus fare for the children) MISERABLY……cuddear…..

    Is a real belly hurt man……DEM in pain..believe you me.


  31. what truth ……..wunna digusting and distasteful attitude against wunna own country. wid spreading half truth and misinformation among the populace the latest now having the KING of all POLITICALY ARDFOWL OOB walking around talking trash. about the PM ..,this spiteful and vindivtive behaviour is almost akin to “drive by shooting” who would target his victim no matter who gets in the way except this time it is the nation reputation and the economy who is being targeted and sprayed with political slander by the BLP yarfowls. mafiosa style,


  32. WHO BLIGHT BARBADOS ?

OAS , Mascoll, Enuff, Miller and yours truly begged you all to stop this nonsense ever since 2009… to stop the madness and allow the rock to recoup lil GROWTH..but No no …more parachutes were placed on this struggling aircraft..till the oleyo wheels could take it no more and collapse….now we like jackass penguins can’t never get airborne again without external help….

    You all will never learn…….Life in Farmville is to back….(leme search fot it)

    BLIGHTERS !


  35. Life on Farmville

    Farmer Brown inherited a thriving farm from a noble benefactor. Brown was elated. His pigs were plump and healthy.Hens laying eggs by the droves.Living in the barn was a wise old owl called Olie.He also had geese, ducks and a team of work horses, he called Taxes. Taxes was a robust five horse team that worked day and night if asked never refusing Farmer Brown’s ask. Farmville was so lovely a sight to see, that it became a tourist attraction, with visitors paying good money to see the geese and sheep n hens do their thing. money was flowing….
    All in all life on Farmville was sweet. Brown was most pleased and one day said “Whatever could ever go wrong on my farm, I say to you come, for you shall be punished with laughter, or your mountain I shall give way to my mice.” Oh what a mistake that turned out to be as the Sun Goddess Ula heard foolish Farmer Brown challenge. So too did wise owl Owlie in the barn and he was astound.

    Next day Ula decided not to look the way of Farmville, instead the Rain Goddess Ravish saw this opportunity to open the flood gates on the fields below. It rained for two days non stop and Farmville turn almost to a sponge. None of the visitors accustomed visiting could no longer make the trip and Farmville was losing money. Farmer Brown knowing this, the next day woke up the team of work horses Taxes, and said somebody got to pay for this, and with that he drove them into the fields to do some most onerous work.
    Wise owl Olie saw what had happened and called Farmer Brown aside and warned him of his follies. ” Brown, what kinda poppet ask you is doa? Like you wanna kill these work horses. Look that ent the problem….working Taxes so hard…you need to apologize to Ula above for your stupid ways…you is a mad man or what? Farmer Brown knowing Olie was right but being the proud pomp he was said..” I have nothing to apologize for….don’t you know who I am? I am Nero….look that up you stupid ass Bird you. With that he resumed over working Taxes, until one day the team could take no more and just so, up and dead like neblett goat..BLAm. Just picture twenty foot up in the air. Farmer Brown could not believe his eyes…sorrowful but unremorseful, he decided to hold til the sinew,… and went a bought a new tether and a accompanying new team of work horses.Wise Olie saw again and stupess…He aint listening to nobody…D same thing gine happen again…Sweet Life duz don’t Last too Long…..when your ears hard….

    You know she was right. By year end the mountain labored and gave birth to a louse… Farmville was taken over by new owners.Within 8 months the country was on the verge of a standstill with crime escalating and no money in circulation……Oplus Fingus Omni Dofulus. They will never learn.


  36. wait how de phuced are the bills going to be paid ,, when every thing was going good nobody thought about the bills having to be made ..nobody thought that one day all the sweetness would come to a streeching halt,,, everybody belly was full the fattedlamd was carved and served to all but the country and the poorest among us..but let me tell yuh dis OOB ,, now the coin is flip .. no more fattted calf … the once full bellies gpnna feel pain cause wunna didn’t give a rats ass about reserving and planning a future for all,, wunna didn’t give a damm, so why wunna now crying,, ever heard no pain no gain,,, well that is where the country is at … thanks to 14 years of wasted plenty,,OOB ,, Always remember .. Never FORGET,,,,


  37. Listen 90 % Goat ..10 % rope………you all were handed a bountiful and affluently economically prescribed country by the Gran master himself….sounds as a Bios boom box….. and you all with the aid of a Thompo and a CLICO worn sought about to drain the Bios. Tell me i lie again ?


  38. Dun know you had to HUSH…cuz we aint campaigning now…..Is now time of truths……no more Ads of dreaming pensioners riding buses….the honeymoon ova……Tell us where is the PM at least…..who then is acting PM?..who at the helm?…….ac


  39. I am speaking of a time in the 1600’s and early 1700’s when Barbados was being built up from scratch ……

    It is a simply proven historical fact that the so called plantocracy did not attend church.


  40. Again we reiterate…..figures don’t LIE

    snip (Prodigal)
    hat he is totally out of his depth is very apparent. It is there for all to see the state of our economy, he CANNOT continue to blame any recession. You have a government that has taken in more revenue than ever before yet overspend every year:

    2008/2009 Revenue 2.6 BILLION yet overspent by 256 MILLION
    2009/2010 Revenue 2.3 BILLION yet overspent by 557 MILLION
    2010/2011 Revenue 2.3 BILLION yet overspent by 647 MILLION
    2011/2012 Revenue 2.5 BILLION yet overspent by 284 MILLION
    2012/2013 Revenue 1.8 BILLION yet overspent by 260 MILLION


  41. The word “plantocracy” only came into use during the 1840’s!!!

    Before that time, there was another word used ……


  42. .Hamilton hill | October 10, 2013 at 8:01 PM |

    Word is that a resignation soon to be tendered gives Barbados a chance at a second spring.Problem is that the government in waiting is plagued with problems in relation to its structural integrity.Simply put, there are three factions in that party.

    Look boy you are a waste of space you like herpes you recur and irritate. I don’t give a rats ass who born you or where. Neither do I give a cow’s crutch if you went school in St.Peter or you sponge off taxpayers money at Cave Hill. When you speak ill of Barbados as you did I will confront you. You low islanders have a long culture of bad mouthing Barbados none more so than your leaders. I don’t give a f**k about you or your leaders. Your island has big crime and economic problems denying and lying your fanny off on Barbados isn’t going to solve them.


  46. “Listen here lover……this is just temporary, don’t reach for the punch-a creme yet….this is Barbados you speakin of….”
    ———————————————————————–
    Onion, nobody wants Barbados to fail; but you have to remember that Barbados, for over 300 years, had been the most dominant island in the Eastern Caribbean; while Dominica and St.Lucia stayed at the bottom. So it is naturally ok for Barbados to take a slide to make way for the Dominicas and St.Lucias. Hey, everything is cyclical.


  47. old onion bags | October 12, 2013 at 7:29 AM |

    Again we reiterate…..figures don’t LIE

    Except that, according to the Auditor General, the Government can’t keep the books; so the figures may very well understate the overspending


  48. @ Onions

    When I first got a glimpse of this article bout dis “Rock ting” I said, “whuloss, dem finally gots an article bout me, yes siree, dem get my real-real name and it all ovah”

    Onions, I thought the article did say “Rock is a Blight” en ‘sincing’ my real last name pretty close to Blight (no not Shi*e), i did planning to write to David[BU] en lodge a complaint.

    So, after de wife lef fuh town, i tek pen to paper or fingers to keys en start to type dis to you.

    I agrees wid you Onions, obeah is in de air and de offender is Richard “he who sees Spirits while he talking to de media” Sealy!!

    Dis is de man dat does be looking up in corners whenever he talking to any body seeing dem disembodied spirits dat you talking bout!!

    en you might axe whu is de cure fuh de obeah blight dat is upon we, an unbroken ring of salt around the whole island, the width of the salt barrier must be exactly 7 inches wide!!

    If it is more then legion shall be upon us on the 7th day of the 7th week of the 7th month of the 7th year of the DLP rule. If it it less salt, then Owen Seethru will be upon us in a sooner time, a timing which i recommend that you ask Mia for the specifics.

    If there is not enough salt to make this ring in these exact proportions than one can use the alternative of putting a circular ring around Parliament buildings which must not be crossed by man, woman, bird, beast of burden or politician, sorry i repeated myself when i said politician after beast of burden.

    De madam has returned so i must leave this dark secret that i hold of my alter ego Clark Kent, i will be with you again when she who rings my bell leaves the house

  55. WHO BLIGHT THIS ROCK ?

    THE DLP
    IS A BLIGHT.

    EVEN BEFORE THIS POST, JUST ASKING HAVE HAVE SAID SO MANY TIMES ON THIS BLOG.

    EVERY TIME , THE DLP FORMS THE GOVERNMENT, THEY DOES RUN DOWN THE COUNTRY. In the1986-91-94 period, they shut down Barbados; everything went down. BLP gets in –suddenly the country is firing on all cylinders and did so for 14 years -You don’t know that the stupid ignorant dogs called the DLP want to take credit for the 14 years of prosperity.

    EVERY THING GETS DIFFICULT WHEN THE DLP GETS IN POWER AND THEY AND THEIR GULLIBLE SUPPORTERS COME UP WITH EXCUSES AND BLAME EVERYBODY ELSE.

    You don’t know the DLP would want to take credit for the 14 years of prosperity under the BLP but they do not want to accept responsibility for what has transpired under Dem from 2008.

    The DLP WANTS TO TAKE CREDIT for 14 years of prosperity but the BLP must be held responsible for what the DLP has done to this country from 2008—

    This is the logic of a wicked political party that is contributing to polarization and the upsurge of violence in this country. That kind of logic resonates with their supporters and they in turn manifests this in illegal activities. Ask those criminals who are shooting up the country , bringing in drugs and committing crime which party they support or sold their votes to in the last BUY -ELECTION .

    THEY ALL SUPPORT THE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR PARTY–ALL THE CRIMINALS

    THE DLP IS A CRIME MANUFACTURING MACHINE. (statement of the year) THIS IS WHAT THEY HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE COUNTRY. –CRIME AND VIOLENCE

    THE DLP IS BAD .
    THE DLP IS VERY DANGEROUS AND SHOULD NOT HAVE FORMED THE GOVERNMENT WITHIN 30 YEARS OF THE 91 -94 debacle of a Government.

    PIECE OF WORK -THAT DLP PIECE OF SHIT

    CAN NEVER GET IT RIGHT;THEY CONSTITUTE A BLIGHT


  56. To substantiate the point……we can no longer call these errs and blunders ..to which many manny articles have been written on this BU blog…but a better term nowadays is ” BLIGHT…”

    Here look I just paid my good $2.50 as investment in a Sunday Sun..and here this is what I reading….

    Wickham’s article page 25 A ….”Last week Minister of Finance Christopher Sinckler confirmed that his 2013 Budget contained errors of a typographical nature and ended speculation about interpretation of two provisions.”.. Whaloss …in a Budget?…wait nobody dont read and re-read them for errors?…Imagine that….rules that hard working bajans will be called upon to live by and they plagued wid errors.BRASSBOWL !

    Next up… page 24 A Hoyos article ..A Solid Waste of Time…re : the introduction of the new land tax ..again mo errors ( had Donville too in noughts).. the gist …I quote from the article…”While you can call it anything you want to, it is a really Part Two of the land tax, as is calculated on the same bands used to figure out your land tax. Except that while your land tax is set at 0.6%, the municipal solid waste tax, AS ANNOUNCED, was set at 0.7 %.”

    That ent all….blunders again with the Consolidated Tax rates ..but I ent going there now…enuff to say there was similar confusion for business places ……

    NOW TELL ME WHO F@*%ing up and BLIGHTING THIS ROCK?

    Q.E.D

  60. RHIANNA CONCERT CANCELLED….

    comments: ” Who will save Barbados now?
    ***************************

    Looka Peoples….I tell all ya these people GOT D BLIGHT….dem got D blight ya…


  61. They said it was Postponed not Cancelled. Postponed until next year. But I believe-it is -CANCELLED, Somehow I believe that one week before the concert that Ticket sales are not what they should be. I am sure I heard Richard- Sealy indicating that ticket sales were going well with 3000 tickets sold overseas etc, especially Trinidad.


  62. “Looka Peoples….I tell all ya these people GOT D BLIGHT….dem got D blight ya…”

    Expect the DLP yellow feathered crew to blame the BLP for the cancellation of the “RI RI” concert.

    The mantra promulgated by the DLP is one of “the BLP is spreading doom and gloom scaring of the investors and keeping away the tourists”.

    The DLP next move will be to blame the BLP and the white people for sending their money overseas and causing the government to go the IMF.

    Pity the country can’t afford the circus clowns anymore. What a desperate lot!


  63. Lets face it, maybe the postponement of the show was the best thing given our present circumstances.Picture those who would have over extended themselves to be their at any cost…..and they would have been many at this show.
