The Hilary Beckles Deception

Submitted by Pachamama
Sir Hilary Beckles, pro-vice-chancellor, University of the West Indies

Sir Hilary Beckles, pro-vice-chancellor, University of the West Indies

In the national waste paper, otherwise called ‘The Nation’, we see Hilary Beckles praising that ‘organization’ and more importantly reverting to a language from his previous life in an effort to achieve two competing and contradictory goals. First, Beckles is seeking to promote a reparations agenda which he feels will bring resources to institutions that pretend to act in the interest of the country/region. Secondly and on the down side, in his mind, by appearing to resort to a language of confrontation, Beckles may be seeking to somehow insulate himself from the collapse of the neo-liberal project which, with the aid of buddy Owen Arthur, he has greatly benefitted from, now that what he sees as his legacy is in great and mortal danger.

To put this artificial and renewed interest in Black empowerment, which Beckles now feels confident to mouth, it is necessary to locate his circular and convenient logic within its proper historical context. Beckles came back to the region some decades ago and located himself within a bureaucratic apparatus which was to give him certain protections. It was, and still is, an institution which suborns narratives about Black disenfranchisement, by people like Keith Hunte, as a lever for their personal advancement. So like Hunte, Beckles, in this most recent reincarnation in using the same idiom for personal advancement. This is a brazen initiative for self. Not even his mentor, Keith Hunte, came back to that narrative more than once.

That Hilary Beckles has the gall to now make reference to the ‘‘Mutual Affair’’, in public, after selling out his compatriots, actively refusing to recognize those events in his professional profile and by assigning the book that chronicled those events to a publisher’s death, must represent a grotesque socialpathic or sociopathic or psychopathic mind. A mind that is incapable of having a real sense of feeling for Black people, unless in pretense, when imposing itself on us as some though leader. We strenuously object. Beckles does not and should not have the moral authority to represent the sufferings of Black peoples after his most recent crimes against us.

When Beckles was taking money and land from White people in Barbados, a pittance, in whoever’s interests, it was then inconvenient for his to be a truth speaker. We vividly recall him like the proverbial Sambo and with a deceitful smile on his face taking money from Geoffrey Cave. Now that he has mustered a false courage to speak truth again we must wonder whether the well of White patronage has dried up. We must wonder whether it is now impossible to avoid a narrative that the whole local political-economic structure is at an end. We must wonder whether this new found interest for Black empowerment and Black economic citizenship is not about the narcissistic personality of Beckles. A narcissism will rooted within the Bajan elites.

Any gains made during The Mutual Affair were to be squandered in the service of the personal advancement of Beckles. For it was Beckles, as a careerist, who aided the corporatists at The Mutual, now Sagicor, to demutualize the organization. Thereby turning a company that was owned and controlled, ostensibly, by the policyholders of Barbados and the Caribbean, into the private fiefdom of elite corporate interests. This is the man who now comes with the unmitigated gall, after surrendering the most valuable ‘public’ asset to private hands preaching about the empowerment of Black people. Herein lies the Becklesian contradiction. Yes, your interest in Black enfranchisement must be limited to the likes of Harold Hoyte and Dodridge Miller and other Black elites. For you were never really interested in any real democracy or freedom that you could not control, benefit from or not of your own making.

Now that he has gotten the five million dollar a year for the so-called high performance centre, the buildings in Bridgetown and in Cave Hill, a number of acreages of land from various interests and the personal directorships on various boards, this traitor feels that it is now time to cuss White people again. We must ask what was happening for the last 15 to 20 years? It was the very Beckles, who witnessed Owen Arthur, close up, creating conditions in Barbados where questions of land reform, reparations, Black empowerment and income mal-distribution were left to deteriorate. In fact, thanks to his buddy Owen Arthur’s free market project for the commodification of land in Barbados land reform may now be an impossibility.

As a member of the boards of Sagicor, WICB(C) and LIME the ‘Black talk’ will not normally be encouraged and Beckles is no man well known to rock any boat unless some scheme is afoot. We suggest that the mask be stripped from this interloper as Chenwezi demanded. He has never earned and does not deserve the trust of the peoples of the Caribbean. As though using the playbook of Hunte, Beckles, ‘this big Black empowerment figure’ slavishly accepted a knighthood from a queen of the colonial power under the guise that it was really a Barbadian honour. He was not like the Great George Lamming who rightly told Sandiford where to put that dishonor which was improperly directed. So today we are to live with the irony that this miscreant could walk about here with a title stained with the blood of African peoples while, in a perfunctory fashion, shouting ‘Black enfranchisement’, ‘Black economic citizenship’. What is load of poooooooh!

Let us look to the radical legacies of John Cumberbatch, Leroy Harewood, Bussa, Glenroy Straughan and the other real heroic figures from our recent and not so recent history. People from the 1930 and the 1960’s and 1970’s who had a genuine commitment to empowerment of all dispossessed peoples. Down with Beckles the, consummate lackey!

    Pachamama 5 stars@ This was one POST I read each and every word.
    We at PLANTATION DEEDS see your points , Agree with out proof for the back side of This Crook, Liar and Scumbag,
    Other post we put up will stand with what we see of another Knight Hood raper of the Bajan History.
    This fool is a Fraud, Lets look at it,
    He is to be one or the one on the Island that is to know about plantations history and played a role with Owen and MIA to Launder the Land , As you can see and hear the 10 greatest Shes of Barbados , He or they Do not add Beatrice Henry or Violet Beckles to the list, Help hide or remove the the plantation deeds from the books of Barbados along with the National Trust .The land they using for UWI , Yes We have the Plantation Deed for that and so does the Fraud Squad,
    As you can see the Police and the PM AG and most of the Ministers know who we are , For who did not know we told face to face , all said they will get back to Us but never did , Even the Newly appointed Senator and Appointed Ministers that lost their seats in the last Elections,
    Votes were bought and then the looser were bought by appointments to vote for the PM in case MIA get her way along with BMW and RR cars.
    So vote Buying is still going on and we hope to learn if this is part of the open land scape ,
    Just think how Beckles hold the minds of the people and talk of out dated names in history and remove names to suit the agenda of the crooks MOVING THE LAND TO PLEASE , ,, like COW and company,
    To help with this picture all you all have to do as a UWI project look at the names of the people in government offices ,
    Archives , water company, land tax, inland rev, land registry, National Trust, Land and Survey, CJ, UDC. COP, NHC, ect,
    A picture of Gate Keeper added by greedy Masons Brothers and Crook Police fooling the people in the street with false news , A clean lawyer will cost to much for the basic Person to jet justice, Crook Judges on the bench will block you if you reach that high.
    Your in an accident and your lawyer and the defendant lawyer work for the same law firm MMMMMM, Now Masons lawyers flipping signs in court to each other and you think you will WIN? Its a show , a play a joke on you,
    We are nothing but monkeys in the middle of all the crooks, liars and scumbags in Barbados,
    When ever you Ready We done,
    Thank you for the POST and BU , BU is the closet thing we have as Freedom of Information and a FREE PRESS, Sham Gar

    Wow, Pacha, so you finally managed to unmask Emperor Hilary stripped naked of his robe of deceit, lies and narcissistic camouflage? His fiefdom of a make-believe empire is about to fall; for without the large financial contributions from the Government of Barbados that institution cannot survive in its present form.

    The Knight of Cave Hill smells his demise as Lord Superior and has jumped on the reparations bandwagon to save his sorry image, only to be kicked off by the UK Minister who made it clear there WILL BE NO REPARATIONS PAYMENTS for slavery. Have we heard a response from Sir Hilary the Head of the Reparations Committee?

    It would serve the selfish grandiose interest of Sir Hilary, honour the memory of those exploited and abused slaves and contribute to the greater interest of the descendants of those slaves if a different approach is employed to advance the Reparations cause.
    He needs to demand that Britain fund the full cost of educating and training children of Afro-Caribbean descent for the next 50 years in areas of national development either at the UWI or at UK universities or tertiary training institutions.
    The British Minister knows very well the day the British people are asked to pay out cash for reparations that money in less than 5 years would end up in the coffers of Chinese and others who know nothing about Trans-Atlantic trade and the institution of slavery in the West Indies.

  • Finally somebody has called out Beckles! I do recall him saying that the National Democratic Party was going to undo all the gains made by the BLP/DLP. I asked myself over twenty years ago , why he was so interested in destroying a third political party. I also asked myself whatever happened to all those who were fighting the Mutual for economic and investment equality and could not figure out why only Beckles ended up with the sweets. I have often asked myself how he rose to prominence so quickly when there were historians such as Trevor Marshall , who have toiled so diligently and have worked so hard to eliminate socio-economic inequality from our island state. I personally defended Beckles years ago, in the press, when Ralph “Bizzy” Williams accused him of bringing “foreign” ideologies into Barbados. However, I became concerned of the Professor when I realized that he was pushing an elitist approach to education by saying he wanted a graduate in every household , clearly meaning that a mechanic, electrician, plumber or any such citizen was irrelevant to his grand educational plan. Now we may have graduates in every household , who cannot find work. I realized a long time ago that Beckles likes to run with the hare and hunt with the hound.
    Good job Pachamama.

I still hold to the position that he did not bring any “foreign” ideology to Barbados and Williams was out of place. I like any other progressive do not allow the white/black folks to get away with branding any black who says something they dont like. However Beckles has played the political card very well. Last thing I heard him say is that he looks forward to being a senator. Quite frankly , he is one of the first academics around here , who is very media savvy. And for that I give him a A+.

    Enuff you can have fun with any question you want on line and you will get answer .Ask any Bank, Credit Union, Ask Light and Power.
    Tell Me who goes to the Police With their Deeds and with books no longer printed from 1920 for over 3weeks taking notes and singed 40 pages,
    . We have a better History than All of Barbados , for the , owner of the land goes back before 1756 till NOW, Clear titles ,,, And the Blood line still lives , with even more owner than before,
    So when ever BU want to have a town meeting so all can ask and see and bring your own deeds so we can see which crook lawyer and bank took funds ,
    If you were defrauded by the Bank or lawyer , you dont have to pay the note if they cant show you clear title,
    But you will have to pay rent which is much cheaper
    We are the owners and we dont need to rip no one off

    You all are running to the wrong person for help, remember the crooks cant help you, Only the True owners,
    When you see the BLP or DLP can help you with truth what will you do.

    Dear William: Your statement is a gross misinterpretation. Wanting a graduate in every household has nothing to do with being elitist or making trades people irrelevant..in fact UWI has been a major employer of trades people in the last 25 years, and many fine tradespeople have become even better working on UWI construction projects.

    I graduate in every household means that if Barbados has 78, 936 households as stated in Table A of the 2010 census http://www.barstats.gov.bb/files/documents/PHC_2010_Census_Volume_1.pdf

    then Barbados should have at any given time 78, 936 university and college graduates in order to spur and sustain its economic and social development. And some of these fine people will have graduated from the Barbados Community College and the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic, and some wil have graduated from more than one institution, and will have graduated form colleges and universities abroad.

    I don’t see how anybody can argue that if Barbados had 78,936 well educated people we would be worse off.

    When these bright young people graduate from college/university in Barbados or return from leading universities around the world, they are expected to go work for the bizzy’s, cows, jadas, simpsons, ram all the little indian/syrian stores et al on the island, the black government (s) considers them nuisances and would not give them leeway to share all their experiences and newly acquired talents, skills and intelligence, they are told point blank ‘wanna think wanna could come back here and change things?’ in other words, the black governments do not want to see any positive change coming about from the same young people whom the taxpayers educated/continues to educate. The government jobs are saved for their lodge members, relatives, yardfowls, mistresses and male lovers….ergo, no change will ever occur in Barbados due to this sick and nasty environment.

    Case in point, Ronald Jones through his own inadequacies would prefer not one child from Barbados go abroad to be educated…….he feels much better about himself if they stay on the island to stagnate, he much prefers to see them working for the bajan whites, syrians, indians, instead of using their skills to become self-employed and developing an island that is not forever dependent on the minorities, that can be said for each and every black politician in Barbados, as long as that child is not their relative, lodge buddies, friends or some other relationship, they do want to see them spread their wings and aid in the development of the island.

  • Untrue!
    Added by Emmanuel Joseph on November 15, 2013.

    Sir Hilary Beckles is not telling the truth!

    That is what Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler stated categorically this afternoon in response to Sir Hilary’s assertion on Wednesday that the Government had withdrawn, after agreeing to guarantee a $30 million loan from the then Barbados National Bank to construct three student dormitories at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies.

    Sir Hilary had also said the country could have earned between $10 million and $15 million per year from the rental of these three buildings to international students. But Sinckler told Barbados TODAY that the files of the ministry had revealed that this pronouncement
    was untrue.

    “Having read that file, I have satisfied myself that the Government of Barbados did not provide a guarantee for that project or intended to,” he insisted. “In fact, the instructions of the then Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance, which were signed off on and agreed to by the late Prime Minister [David Thompson] who was the substantive Minister of Finance, was that a letter of comfort would be provided for the University of the West to borrow $31 million from Republic Bank to construct the dormitories, and I believe there were three of them,” Sinckler said.

    “That letter of comfort, from what I have seen on the file, was issued. The letter of comfort, Senator [Darcy] Boyce had indicated, would be limited only to the construction phase, since the projects were being marketed, or promoted as revenue-generating, and therefore they could sustain the payments of loan.”

    Sinckler observed that Senator Boyce’s instructions were crystal clear, that the proceeds in terms of the revenue earned, from the rents charged, should be assigned specifically to servicing the debt.

    “And in that case, therefore, there was no need for a sovereign guarantee, and that’s really what the files said. So, for the principal to say that the Government agreed to provide a guarantee and then withdraw it, is technically not correct; it is not accurate,” the Cabinet minister argued.

    Sinckler informed Barbados TODAY that he had since spoken with both the Minister of Education and Boyce “who was then the Minister of State, and they have both confirmed what the file says”.

    He said he was not sure what happened that the university could not eventually get the 431 million eventually, “but I will have to investigate that”, sinckler promised.

Because I cannot see how anyone could speak ill of the land of his or her birth, but I’ve realized that this is a common practice among a lot of Barbadians on some of the island’s threads. Which leads to ask this question: where is the Barbadian sense of nationalism that has come to definded the Jamaican? You can say whatever you wish about the Jamaican, but I can assure that you would never hear a Jamaican besmearing the national character of his island; even when the social, economic, and political situation has reached crisis conditions. call it escapism or whatever you choose, but in the enclave of negativity, the Jamaican always has a position word for his or her island.

    What do you mean by calling me a “stick in the mud”? Wxactly what are you referring to? Of course I know of Jamaica’s propensity for a better work ethic. The difference between the outlook of the different peoples sis easy to discover. Barbadians have a good work ethic, but their tendency is to be more secure and take less chances. Barbadians put their funds in housing and working in a secure job (civil service; customs government jobs etc), buying a home and so on. Jamaicans tend to be more entrepreneurial; opening a little shop, producing things, importing agricultural products from their homeland and being extremely nationalistic. I admire these things. Bajans willl be more critical of their own; even their own country, and more admiring of others. This is our problem. Even if our people are right they are more ikely to say to, and in front of others, that our people are wrong.

    You know, it is funny how some of us are still enveloped in this hierarchical / tribalistic way of viewing our world.
