Dr. Agard Elected by the People but…

Dr. Maria Agard, MP for Christ Church West

Dr. Maria Agard, MP for Christ Church West

For many months now it has become crystal clear to BU that Dr. Maria Agard, the member of parliament for Christ Church West, is on a hit list of the hierarchy of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP).  Last weekend we learned that the Christ Church West constituency meeting to elect a new Executive had to be suspended because of alleged irregularities to a voting list. Earlier this year the Barbados Today newspaper reported that ”Dr Maria Agard raised strong exception to what she saw as undue interference in the inner workings of her constituency branch. The Shadow Minister of Health expressed particular unease over a proposal by some branch executives to convene, without reference to her, a meeting to discuss the 2013 general election results in Christ Church West, which saw Dr Agard narrowly defeating the ruling Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) candidate Verla DePeiza in what has traditionally been a run away BLP constituency” – read report Unease in BLP’s Christ Church West camp. 

To add to the intrigue playing out in Agard’s riding, Barbadians read about an anonymous source who shared an opinion that representative for Christ Church West Dr. Maria Agard does not have the backing of the BLP – see report Agard under fire. So far Agard has not been provoked to comment on the matter and BU will reserve further comment until she does. However, based on our observation we smell a big stink rat!

What the BLP should be concerned about is fielding a slate of ‘fresh faced’ candidates who are enthusiastic to share a message of change relevant to times in which we live. So far we have seen the nomination of the Reverend Joseph Atherley and Attorney-at-law Ralph Thorne has expressed an interest to run when the next general election is called.  So far the majority of the nominees are steeped in the a tired old time politics that has led to a large number of Barbadians becoming disengaged from the voting process. What Barbadians are witnessing in 2015 is an inability of the two major political parties to reinvent themselves to remain relevant. Mia Mottley like the late David Thompson promised so much, however, we have not seen her able to cloaked herself in a new narrative  to give hope – the audacity of hope.

In 2011 when Mia Mottley withdrew her nomination to run for the Chairmanship of the BLP, she did so on the grounds that the constitution of the BLP was being trampled as it relates to the eligibility of members to vote. Several months later there is a reasonable expectation by BU Mottley would have addressed the issue of democratizing the way business is done by the party. It seems politics in Barbados has been reduced to the politician who can make a promise stick or sound ‘purty’.

Who will disagree that Barbados has found itself stuck in political neutral. We are going nowhere fast.

    Oh no Piece, you could spoon feed Kevin that argument, but I ain’t buying what you’re selling at tall. Because the 2013 BLP defeated was due in part to its failure/inability to supply a counter argument which would have undermined DLP message and thereby, rally the collective conscience of the nation in the other direction.
    So in essence, what you’re actually saying is fact the that BLP allowed the DLP to outfox them thereby securing its victory. lol

    That was excellent work by the DLP, Dompey (and I am being sarcastic)!

    …………….and look how good that victory is working out for us who live here.

    Extracted from flying fish & coy cou

    WUH-LOSS. It is pure bacchanal in the beehives all across the south of the island. The stinging bees, the giant African killer bees, even the queen bee were all buzzing around the place.

    MONDAY MAN: Gibson as busy as the…
    MONDAY MAN: Keeper warns: bee-ware…
    STREET BEAT: Let them bee . ….
    For the first time there is a roly-poly brown bee and one which was looking to sting somebody, anybody last Sunday evening.
    This bee, whose gender is uncertain, is like a fly in the ointment. Just imagine this bee wants to be in charge. But the real queen bee, who is often seen leading her swarm down in Harts Gap and the posh areas along the South Coast, is not afraid to defend her hive. So there is no free honey there.
    In the meantime, Dr Dolittle is flying around watching and waiting to see when to take over the hive.
    But the buzzing like it is going to heat up in other parts of the south, where the swarms are gathering in places like Wotton and Kingsland. The bees are feeding on the sweet flowers all around, with one sweet-mouth bee who has a lot of pretty antics being bitten by another bee who was in camouflage all this time pretending to being a bee hummingbird operating independent of the queen bee. But with time drawing nigh, the camouflage had to come off.
    And talking about camouflage, it will soon come off around the other hives in Brittons Hill and Highgate and even down in Martindales Road and Marl Hole Gap, while real stingers will be out in the centre of the island when it’s time to eat that honeycomb there.

    The picture above….with Mia’s lips pursed..you ain’t had a better picture to put up?

    Seeing that there is 1. Alleged tension between Ms. Mottley and Dr. Agard!
    2. Dr. Agard is a female and Ms. Mottley’ s alleged proclivity to exert dominance over the fairer sex!

    The picture of Ms. Mottley above gives a distinct impression of this dominance……lips and all!

    You know that I have balls of steel and could care any of the personal reprisals against me, but what concerns me most is your reluctant with respect to redirecting Bush Tea and Piece, when the both of them seek to alter the nature of the discussion here with they personal attacks. But when I respond to their egregious and atrocious sentiments you seems to caution me incessantly, and deliberately ignore the fact that others are taking stock of your actions.


  5. David September 26, 2015 at 4:56 PM #


    The reason is simple, you post alotta shite on the blog. An like your partner, your hignorance knows no bounds.

    You have the unique and peculiar ability to reduce all blogs on BU to nothingness. Further, it appears like your partner you clamour;yearn even, for the attention of BU the family possibly linked to a psychological challenge.

    You may have the last word likely to be steeped with your usual loquaciousness.

    @ Donkey

    You ask if de ole man evah was at Jenkins and if I knew the Professor

    I knew Professor LaHa very well, he was a cousin of my family and though rather eccentric he was not a madmans like certain peeple…

    While I did not go to Jenkins I used tuh work at a hospital for the mentally ill or mad peeples of which I BELIEVE YOU TO BE ONE and deo ole man gine show you why.

    At 3.40 pm you accost Bush Tea and ask him “if the zoo doan close pun weekends nuh more?”

    Then, at 4.01 p.m. 21 minutes later after de medication wear off, you run crying like a beatchhhh to the Blog Master asking for his protection because, and de ole man gine quote you here “he have not reprimanded Piece and Bush Tea” fuh “engaging character – assasination and adhominem”


    Now Dufus, even if you was axing fuh de protection uh de Blogmastah would it not make sense for you to have kept quiet and plead his protection FIRST instead of attacking us wid ad hominens, the same behaviour you axing he to reprimand we fuh???

    My question to you is have you ever been to Jenkins or to any mental institution in Murica?

    What medication are you on as a result?

    You do know that it is a fact that the flicker rat of cuntputer screens can induce your mad spells?

    The same advice that I does give AC, I gine give you, Keep way from de cuntputer okay??


  7. Dompey September 26, 2015 at 5:09 PM #


    That is a matter of opinion David, and I am quite sure many would disagree with you and many would probably agree with you as well. But to be quite honest with you David, in my own judgment, I do believe that AC is much more intelligent than all of you all banded together. Now that’s my opinion take or leave it!


  8. pieceuhderockyeahright September 26, 2015 at 5:27 PM #

    Oh dear me, he may possibly cry and has called for the other half of the dynamic duo to help him in that offhanded, drowning man catch-at-a-straw plea to the intelligence of the the other cretin

    She must be at one of the Saturday evening cuntstituency meetings rousing on the DLP rabble sorry faithful or else she would have come to the ingrunt swine’s rescue

    Dompey asking the blogmaster protection man dont mek mah laugh nah. Asking the blogmaster protection is analogous to a Christian standing in the heart of Hell and asking God’s protection, so let’s not go there anymore old one yah hare.

    Now I had aa mine that you dah know Professor, you spend sometime with de man en Jenkins and come on hay on BU blowing it off as though Prof is yah wife family. Man came again with your sob story, but this time make a little more realistic yah hare Old One ?


  11. Donna September 26, 2015 at 5:44 PM #

    Again, Lord have mercy!


  12. Dompey September 26, 2015 at 6:04 PM #


    I bet if you see me in de flesh you would put one between my eye and nose because that’s how piss you are with me right about now because you have taken this discussion to another level.

    But don’t take it personal it was all meant to be in fun Old One. Now with respect to Professor yes… there was a certain eccentricity about that man and even though at times he did exhibited periods of psychotic episodes when his medication regiment wasn’t what it ought to have been.

    But Prof had had a wide grasped of the lexicon and would have probably given Dr. Don Blackman my childhood mentor a run for his money because he had had that much of a grasped of the dictionary, as far as I could remember.

    @ Dompey
    “……I bet if you see me in de flesh you would put one between my eye and nose because that’s how piss you are with me right…”
    You probably got something right there Domps…

    Wuh shiite …. if YOUR OWN THREE SONS seem to have had it with you… what would you expect from BU strangers who now have to put up with your shiite day and night ..(now that you are afraid to sleep with both eyes closed…)?

    LOL @ David(?) BU
    “The reason is simple, you post alotta shite on the blog. An like your partner, your hignorance knows no bounds.”
    ha ha ha LOL …..ohhhh shiirt!!!
    …NO WAY this is the real David…. ha ha ha
    TOO SWEET!!!

    The REAL David is too much of a saint and diplomat …to be so honest and direct …even with Domps…

    Sounds like the wifey or the big daughter…. LOL!!! 🙂

    Yes Bushie, David is a good guy … but unfortunately when it comes to his politics it seems as though he exercise poor judgment. We wouldn’t mine having David on the DLP side of thing, but this would forced you into retirement because you would be devoid of somebody’s legs to hid in between when the pressure becomes overbearing.

    Lord have mer-er-cy!
