  • And BU responded that Morris has pulled back a little by the revision. The truth is many rank and file Bajans do not care about the quantum quoted, given Parris’ reported renumeration over many years and Duprey’s modus operandi he is obviously a rich man. Chances he has several more million scattered around Barbados on other financial institutions.

    All BU wants for Christmas is for some poor Bajans to get back some money and for some others to wear stripes.

    Someting fishy;

    The single Roy Morris Sunday Sun paper reported in one place “several hundred thousand dollars” and in another paragraph of the same article; “in excess of 8 million dollars”. Do you see a serious conflict there? What is fishy about that? Could it have been done to bring the hard paper article in line with the online version of the article which might not have wanted to spread the enormity of the sums involved over the entire internet.

    Could several be eighty? How many “hundred thousand dollars” is equivalent to one million dollars? How many hundred thousand dollars is equivalent to eight million dollars? Couldn’t eight million dollars be truthfully described as several hundred thousand dollars?

    Where’s the smelly beef?

  • Barbados is not used to this kind of nastiness in high places.We have always held certain professions in high esteem largely because there was a sense of decency which prevailed in the Barbados of old and morality was a given,with the influence of the Anglican Church lending its values and mores to the mix.
    Headteachers had authority and responsibility for turning out good citizens as a result our 7th standard delivered solid and properly prepared young people for the work force.Manners maketh man was the mantra and thats why tourism became a successful industry.
    A big able newspaperman tried to get a copy of the probated will and was told there was no way that could be had.It was in a woman’s handbag for safekeeping.The FOI Act would take care of these bleeps and foulsup but wait for it.Trinidad has one so guyz like Afra and the Express can publish and
    sometimes create havoc in high places.
    Out of that Clico commission of enquiry came the news that Duprey was receivinig a figure like 90 million a year.Is there a surprise that we were told the Barbados Clico was a separate company to the Trinidad clico? Successive governments have allowed its citizens to be exposed to nefarious schemes and
    plain outright thieving by so called “Good Corproate Citizens”only to realize that their hardearned savings have been stolen and the recourse is replete with hoops and hurdles and deadends because of the Protection Rackets aided and abetted by politicians who vowed not to lie,cheat or steal .

    Does that tell us something about our society? In most other places the Newsmen would have hatched a plan to get sight of the document, even if slightly illegally.

    Does the embargo relate only to copying the document or to actually seeing the document and memorizing portions of it? Could a case be brought against the new registrar to allow the public to view the document that must in some way summarize the achievements of their beloved former king? What would it take for some independent lawyers and other legal professionals to do the necessary to allow the document to be viewed, if not copied?

    I am beginning to worry about the silence on these matters of Amused and the other Lawyers who occasionally post on BU.

    “However, I will be researching this gentleman as much as I can and if he is anyway tied to the BLP in a photo, handshake or a verbal, I will let you know and it will be exposed.”

    it is not a man, it is CIBC.. why is it that in this island which still shows evidence of a banana republic, that every single thing, opinon, man, woman, you name it, has to be aligned with some political party?

    do you people not yet have the intellect to understand that the majority of citizens, denizens, etc do not care about a political party, only about doing what is right?. no wonder Barbados is now in the position of want and ‘hand-to-mouth’. Those that could progress the country are cast aside for one of the political parties (BLP or DLP) which from evidence are rift with characters who are black, care not for the people and go from pauper to rich as soon as their party wins the elections.. really, really pitiful.

    Listen fishy man, here is something you should put your nose up “into” to see if it stinks to high heavens.
    Instead of splitting hairs over if Greenverbs stole hundreds of thousands or 8 million of policyholders’ money why not ask Pornville (instead of Roy Morris) how come he is promoting the serious reduction aka restructuring of the public sector workforce.
    Is this the same King of Porn who last year accused the BLP of planning in a secret meeting to send home thousands of public sector workers whereas the DLP had no such plans if returned to power?

    Is this the same damn lying prick who today said he is all for the significant reduction of the public sector (and has held this view for a long time) and is on a campaign to see many of the functions currently done by the public sector divested/outsourced to an expanding private sector?

    You should ask the King of Porn if the amount of vulnerable workers- which his party used for electoral purposes and now about to abuse- to go from the public sector is in the hundreds or thousands.
    When you are able to hook that answer from the twisted mouth of the lying porn king ask him if he is able to tell us if the Kingsland hospital will be Government operated or would it be a private sector project that would be charging private sector fees for services provided.

Politicians of low no morals . thieves. supported at every turn by attorneys. politics and the legalized criminals, are our biggest nightmare. the Bar Association is a national disgrace. the court system is 80 years outdated. politicised. relationships. there is no justice.
    learn from at Clico / Parris / Thompson / Haynes QC / ELLIS / Stuart. . what happened to the criminal charges against the Directors……nuthin!! and nothing WILL continue.
    floating on top of us; supported by our taxes and fees is the scum. corruption. big money. Clico / Parris sucked in so many attorneys / politicians / business people in to its web of money laundering and corruption. the authorities that should move and take action cant. wont….because the Civil Service and the watchdogs are all roads leading to Ministers…politics. look at the cheques written to politicians. the loans handed out by CLICO the tax dodging all helped by big up accountants and attorneys . you want a lot of names and details….easy. check those who flew the private plane. look at all the attorneys involved . all friends . look at the relationships. an attorney learns to lie and cheat in as a junior. there boss becomes a judge!! influence; connections. is the Inland revenue investigating Parris? or Thompson? Haynes? Leslie Haynes was in the middle of all that. knows all. Haynes is now caught up in the middle of a $40 million fraud with a well known hotel in Christchurch with his business associate Clyde Turney .

    Do you see the beginning of “the staking out and differentiating” of territory here? Note that Donville Inniss, arguably the brightest and busiest of the DLP lot, also indicated that he would be meeting with Mia sometime to share info on his projects and programmes.

    His statements re. job right sizing in the public service and privatization and private sector growth are strong and actually insightful but one wonders if the “in your face and volte face” attitude is best at this time for a member of a Government that was forced by its PM (In order to win the last election) to lie transparently about layoffs and eschew privatization which its MoF had earlier championed.

    Of course those positions he took today are diametrically opposed to everything that he has been quoted as strongly representing in the past 5 years.

    Could this be the opening salvo in the possible formation of a coalition and the possible ultimate jettisoning of an inept PM? It will be very interesting to see if any of the other DLP parliamentarians adopt a similar tone, particularly re. collaborating with the Opposition.
