Denis Kellman M.P. Minister of Housing

The following letter is a reply by Minster of Housing Denis Kellman to a Barbadian who exercised her right under the Constitution of Barbados. We have always found Kellman to be approachable – as all ministers of government should be. That said, one must question […]

    I think that the Minister is trying to tell Claire Worme that plenty of planes and ships full of garbage coming to Barbados is a good thing for Barbados, as we can charge those ships and lanes port fees etc.

    “Gain opportunity costs” is a contradiction so regretfully I can’t explain that.

    I think that the Minister meant that he was both surprised and pleased [NOT shocked] to experience that the windmills in Kenya are so quiet that people are able to have and hear conversations even while standing near to the working windmills.

    Don’t thank me.

    Today on Brass tacks the Minister of transport called Dennis Johnson after a number of highly intelligent calls on the subject of the ZR business. perhaps he just wanted to capitalise on the trend of discussion about how the BLP had demonised these black business people and tormented them with taxes etc.
    …but shiite man… He is a lawyer?

    He sounded about as coherent as Kellman – wuh shiite man, even Dompey tends to occasionally sound sensible.

    ahhmm ummm errr …we are planning to look at this…

    I want to support both your keen observations re the ERT.First and foremost it’s a waste of taxpayers’ monies.Its another example of members of parliament who are lawyers,making laws to earn them money when they are kicked to hell out of public life.
    Secondly,Codrington is piss poor:-to look at he is a disheveled looking impersonator of what an attorney should look like.The man needs a woman to dress him,to groom him,to upgrade his personage,to tell him to stop putting his hand over his mouth when speaking,to speak distinctly and clearly,to stop squirming in his chair like he got piles or some such discomfort,to present and represent his client with dignity,charm,wit,precise English and the occasional Latin phrase,all these tools of trade as seen from the chairman Gollop,a staunch BLP trained school teacher who like he never stop teaching whoever he talking to.Now that he switch to the DLP,he can’t forget old habits.If you cross the line he pulls you up short and he letting you know who in charge hey whether you be D or B.Personally,I think Codrington out of his element.He lucky he never had to face Tom Adams or Bree St John in a court.Worse yet Errol Barrow or Grantley Adams.Codrington can only benefit from the strings of the Fatted Calf,another poor rakey example of what and who represent the Dems,a 3rd division team if we talking cricket,like when Police bowl out Empire for 24…..

  • Kellman has no right to be critical of Brasstacks.

    It is his own fault. He feels he is popular so he thought he had the right of way on every programme. Every day he was calling talking shiite and one day he let his mouth run too much…….I left home on my way to an appointment and he was on…………..I got to the appointment, he was still talking and I said to myself his mouth is going to get him in trouble.

    I think David Ellis realised that he was getting into dangerous waters and tried to haul him back but Kellman would not shut up. Next thing Dodridge Miller called in and said he was going to write to the PM over Kellman’s comments.

    What an exchange between David and Dennis Kellman. Years in the spot light have made Dennis Kellman believe that he is the evening and morning star. That his writing is at a higher level than all and that his logic cannot be challenged. Sounds everything like Alvin Cummins and the AC brigade. If he can be a politician and be so deaf and ignorant to the nonsense that he and his party are doing than I am convinced more than ever that these people are oblivious to wrong because it’s all right in their eyes. No wonder why this shite would castigate BU. Dennis Kellman, I am sorry to say this, but you are a real shite indeed. All this nonsense about doing what is right for Barbados is bare smoke and guns. You are a mere simpleton in a minister’s chair and because you are part of the decision-making process and an obvious party political puppet being pulled by strings, I can understand why the Cahill deal to you is the sweetest thing since lead pipes. May God help your ass on a fast track out of government power. You are dangerous and a puppet pretender.

    When last anyone heard about Santia Bradshaw or any other minister of the BLP for whatever causes done,i am hard press to remember or think of any of the Blp ministers name unless there is a bruha within the party , Ask me their names personally i have to go on the BLP website to remember them
    The fact that the DLP ministers are frequently mentioned here on BU ac does not frowned upon but adheres to the policy that better to have publicly than no publicity ,
    BU IMHO keep up the good work.

  • As anyone can see, David is a “friend” on Kellman’s face book page. Judging from Kellman’s response, he did not take it too kindly that David posted this article and the subsequent “licks” he has received so far as a result.

    David is now trying to “back pedal” by writing such as “Say what you will, Kellman is the longest serving member of parliament, decode that!” in an attempt to appease Kellman.

    So what if Kellman is the longest serving member of parliament? What David (and Kellman) should have us “decode” is a list of what he has been able to achieve on behalf of his constituents during this time.

    You missed the boat by a wide margin based on your last comment. The reference to Kellman’s length of service in parliament is meant to show he has the support of the people. In effect you et al are saying the people elected an idiot.

    In this time, when politicians are silent on most issues, it is good to see one venturing from the nuclear shelter and actively exchanging ideas with others.

    Barbados is a very small island, so there is not this marked distinction between st Lucy and the other constituencies, It might be self serving to consider yourselves as superior to the people of st Lucy, but your truth and reality may be quite different.

    I am not an authority on the many pronouncements of the minister.

    However, a case like this is easy to decide, Array your experts against those from the minister; throw the information into the ring and let the readers decide.

    To debate his position or your position without having the facts is an exercise that is not profitable to any of the parties.

    And to besides,Kellman was made a minister not because of any special talent but because he was the longest serving member of the DLP in the House.Taxpayers must put up with this semi brain-damaged, physically challenged shorty shopkeeper gaffer.
    ………………………..

    After the 2008 election and David Thompson announced his cabinet omitting Kellman, I asked a hardcore DLP friend of mine why was Kellman not given a ministry……he told me……………”ministry what…..when Kellman learn to behave himself he will get something.” To tell the truth, so much had gone on in the DLP, I had forgotten that he and David Thompson were enemies.

    So Kellman was never going to get a ministry under Thompson. But good luck for Kellman, the grim reaper came for his arch enemy. Well you know on the morning of Thompson’s death, the DLP MP’s had to vote for a leader……. we all knew that Thompson thought the DLP was his and so he “willed” it to Stinkliar. A vote had to be taken and it is alleged that after the second round of voting, he told Freundel ………….if I vote for you, I want a ministry!

    Amazing how we ended up with Kellman as a minister………the loweman got sick and a door was opened!

    “You know I got real dizzy reading this letter.”

    I have not written here in a long long time. This article had me dizzy as well and when I read Islandgal I just rocked in peels of laughter and said ‘so true.’

    I was dizzy. I felt like I was in Kenya between the windmills and turbines that were not explained and still don’t get the relevance. There is the info that MP Denis went to Kenya.

    Others tried to explain and asked for Claire’s letter which I also thought could have been posted for clarity. However from the dialogue with David I wondered if it would make a difference reading Claire’s letter. So I just respect the fact that he actually replied.

    I am delighted that I know that there are various mental challenges and that the Psychologists have a week of activity, and that we need to know when it is time for therapy physical and/or mental.

    Islandgal thanks for the therapy, “a good laugh worketh good as a medicine.”

  • The Government via the Barbados Water Authority and the Ministry of Transport and Works continue to put the lives of many road users in this country at risk. We heard recently that much, if not all, of MTW’s trucks and equipment are out of service, awaiting spares.Therefore the many potholes, and the excavations made mainly by the BWA maintenance crews , cannot be safely reinstated,and as a result we have seen many excavations made by the BWA all across the island , being filled in with the same mud and dirt, and sometimes old and dirty traffic cones , jucked in the middle of the highway “grave’, right in the face of traveling motorists,seems to be adequate.
    I thought that BWA,especially ,would have learned from its mistakes, when some years ago, it left a similar exacavation on Maxwell Main Road,which cost a young Light and Power employee, Mr Thorne , his life while trying to avoid this obstruction one night.

  • @David, well said earlier re Lucyians electing an idiot if Kellman is one too. If there is one thing that is pellucid over all these years of political life is that citizens get exactly the representative for whom they vote.

    To denigrate Kellman as idiotic or lacking intelligence is amusing to me because that effectively says that a number of family members of us bloggers on BU here who live up there are blinking idiots too.

    @Caswell, and maybe I am also an idiot even though I do not live in St. Lucy because quite frankly despite the “disjointed, incomprehensible letter” it seemed relatively clear to me.

    Simple Simon explained the planes and ship re full of garbage and landing fees although you are correct that it is quite incomprehensible that cargo planes would be used to transport garbage. But otherwise likely that’s what he means.

    The Kenya windmill reference can be linked to wind-farm turbines for green energy of course.

    And the seemingly strange remark about “having discussions” and “near houses’ while there would surely be a reference to the proximity of the WTE plant close to homes and the impact of production/operational noise pollution. He is suggesting it would not be an issue.

    But again it remains incomprehensible what a wind farm and a gasification plant have in common in that context.

    But generally though if I was a CP grad who stood cheek and jowl in the House with the almighty Bajan scholar and PM Thompson and also took him on mano-a-mano and I am the one left standing then I think I would be a tad arrogant too. Particularly when my early criticism of him as evil have been shown to be correct.

    Whatever you think of the man he is still there; others – deceased and otherwise – are long gone.

    Well, maybe I would have to say that Stephen Lashley gets some marks…..Crop Over came off well.

    Kellman should keep off Facebook and do the work he is being paid to do. I heard a lady on Brasstacks saying that she applied for one of the houses at the Grotto……..Kellman would do well to tell Barbadians what is the NHC’s position with these houses which have been paid for (Mark Maloney again). Does the minister not know that you cannot keep houses closed up for so long?

    As it stands, it appears that the only pumping that has been done, is the taxpayers money all the way to the bank, to Mr B’s and his usual cronies accounts, and of course a piece on the side for the other interest party.
