The 50th Anniversary Letter

50thAs part of the 50th Anniversary celebration the following letter will be mailed to Barbadian households. On the face of it there is nothing wrong with the Prime Minister communicating with his people about what it should mean to attain Golden Jubilee status (50 years of Independence). The question Prime Minister why not communicate with the same vigour about other matters of public interest.  This is the reason many are disappointed and have labelled you as just another politician who has seen an opportunity to pursue political self interest.  Almost 8 years in office and how many press conferences have you held? How many Q&A briefings after Cabinet meetings?

    That’s how the ACs get when their well orchestrated set up of the BU folk don’t work…that is no joke, all that hard work of psychotic yardfowlism yesterday was for nought..she must be exhausted this morning and cant put in an appearance until later.

    “Minister Kellman’s quick and arrogant dismissal of the recent Poll results, tells us what Kellman and his government think of Barbadians.”

    If you were to read Kellman’s comments relative to National Housing Corporation’s debt of over half billion dollars, you would also give you another idea what he thinks about Barbadians.

    In the Sunday, February 14, 2016 edition of the Sunday Sun, the minister is reported as having said: “You DO NOT have the BANK FACILITIES. You do not have the LOAN FACTOR [nor] SUBSIDIES coming from Government but yet the projects are being completed. They might not be completed at the pace that people would expect but it is one thing to think anything from a theoretical point of view but I have to be very practical,” he said, noting that progress was ATTRIBUTED to more EFFICIENT MANAGEMENT.

    The new report went on to state that Kellman said the DEBT WAS NOT CREATED by the CURRENT BOARD.

    Kellman says he is an accountant, but even a 17 year old who has done CXC basic accounting would know that, if the NHC gave away units free of cost, thereby reducing income by significant amounts, and in the absence of bank facilities, loans or subsidies, the corporation would OWE suppliers for materials if it completed the projects or OWE third party contractors for constructing the projects. In other words, under both circumstances, the NHC completed these projects “on credit.”

    Mr. Kellman should tell Barbadians how was the over $40 million the NHC received in monthly advances WITHOUT PARLIAMENTARY APPROVAL, was disbursed.

    He should also account for the $87,945,336.13, which, according to items 2.40 and 2.41 on page 26 of the Auditor General’s Report 2014:

    “There were a number of advances for the financial year for which THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE that they were made from any capital appropriation.”

    “There was no EVIDENCE that these ADVANCES were VOTED by Parliament. It should also be noted that these entities are wholly owned by the Crown and HAVE LITTLE OR NO MEANS OF GENERATING INCOME TO REPAY THESE ADVANCES.”

    Is this what you call efficient management, Mr. Kellman?

    Wunnah see wuh I tell wunnuh? The ac consortium is nuff, nuff idiots, hear.

    If BU’s CAHILL INFORMATION is FRAUDULENT, then “those who might have ACCESS and PARTICIPATED in such FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY” would not have ANY REASON to FEAR David being a “snitch” and suggest that “he can no longer trusted.”

    As such, common sense would suggest that if the “participants” believe David is indeed a snitch and can no longer be trusted, it obviously means the information they gave him HAS to be AUTHENTIC, and they may be experiencing some anxiety because he RIGHTFULLY exposed the documents for Barbadians to read.

    Additionally, no one from this DLP administration (well….. except the ACs) has gone to the media or any other forum to refute CAHILL allegations or presented any proof to substantiate that the CAHILL documents are fraudulent.

    No comments, no progress on the project, no investors, no construction in sept as promised by Cahill,no EIA submission or publuc notices, no communication, and WHY???????
    Because all the proof of the scam published by BU is correct and true.
    Face it AC/ac you’re handlers have misrepresented everything related to this Cahill monstrosity and you the mouthpieces of the lame duck ministers have been duped also.

    David et al

    This week on Brasstacks someone keeps calling in and saying that a company is about to fold due to debts of 50m thereby creating more unemployment……..does anyone know about this?


  7. Vincent Haynes February 26, 2016 at 1:28 PM #

    I hope you all appreciate how caring this govt is….The MoH has found land for squatters at $5.00 a square ft,this is a great help……just a minor matter of qualifying.


  8. Colonel Buggy February 26, 2016 at 2:43 PM #

    And the same dismissive Minister of Housing is about to purchase land in the Church Village area to establish yet another White Elephant, like those at the Grotto, Coverley etc etc. I would advise the squatters in the Belle and elsewhere to move onto the lands at Church Village as soon as Kellman purchases it. A precedent has already been set pertaining to squatting in Church Village. Leroy Parris has some $5Million of poor Bajans money squatting in the vaults of the Central Bank.
    Who owns the land around Church Village which is being offered to Kellman? Indian, Dlp-ite or Bizzy?


  9. Well Well & Consequences February 26, 2016 at 2:51 PM #

    Since Leroy Parris has finally been seen by the high court as using fraudulent means to steal policyholders money and bank it in various commercial banks and the central bank…..will the DPP and police now get an arrest warrant for that thief and arrest him for theft and fraud, they can only file so many appeal documents, until the court says….no more, give the Clico judicial managers the money for the policyholders and lock Parris the hell up.

    Who is that dude Watson and does he have qualifications as an engineer to make these statements….being a senator dont mean squat..


  11. Peltdownman February 26, 2016 at 3:37 PM #

    I want to be fair to Senator Watson. Barbados Today is well known for taking a comment and completely turning it around to mean something else. I think they must have after-hours sessions when they take turns to find a twist. I would never make a statement of any kind to that publication, and even though Senator Watson was a little naïve in his comments, I do not believe that he is “All for WTE in the form of plasma gasification for Barbados”, or words to that effect.


  12. Redfactor101 February 26, 2016 at 3:41 PM #

    What has he looked at ???? A desktop study??? There is no other plasma gasification plant this size any where in the world that is operational NONE!!!!!!!!!
    He is right about a few things 1.there isn’t enough garbage to feed the beast.
    2. The substantial maintenance will be enormously expensive as it won’t work
    Clearly he hasn’t been watching AIR products Tv1 TV2 in the UK…..
    Plasma gasification at this scale is totally unproven … Arewe to be the guinea pig plant for alter NRG??? Who have stepped away from Cahill.
    Clearly he has no clue about the use of plasma gasification at this scale
    Other key questions are. why did he look at the Cahill project ?? And what did he look at???
    There is not enough info for any meaningful review to take place.

    Did you also note that, along with confirming the original order for holding the $4.5 million at Scotia Bank along with the $3.3 million that DT was primarily responsible for placing in LP’s coffers in the first place, that the Judge has removed DT’s estate from consideration for returning part of the 3.3 million, at least, to CIL.

    I wonder how that will go down for LP?

    Will we see a future headline where LP will ask for the DT estate to pay the funds which DT might be considered to have extracted from it? After all DT will have been asked to pay that amount twice if he loses the 3.3 M along with the fees already paid to DT.

    Will he willingly bear the brunt of the judgement or will there be some other accomodation made?

    Is there something more in the mortar here than the LP pestle?

    Did the Nation report fully and accurately the various aspects of the judgements so far?

    Also, could any other party, eg. the BLP, be expected to pursue the DT estate aspect of this matter in the court of public opinion on the basis that LP did not, on his own, cause the 3.3 million to magically move from CIL to LP’s now frozen account, with some attrition on the way, that somehow might have found its way into DT’s estate coffers and now seems to have been excluded from the calculations.

    I suspect that the game is now afoot.


  14. are-we-there-yet February 26, 2016 at 4:39 PM #

    I forgot to add above that it seems to me that the opposition parties now have enough ammunition on this matter to keep the Government on the defensive until whenever elections are called and thereby consign the republican talk to the dustbin, if they are so disposed.


  15. Well Well & Consequences February 26, 2016 at 4:59 PM #

    Are we there yet…very good questions indeed, I did not bother to mention it and like you will watch the outcome, one can also get a copy of Justice Gibson’s decision to read what the Nation Newspaper nelected to say on that Thompson Estate matter, since it’s now public record.

    Don’t hold your breath on oppostion leader Mia doing or saying anything to rock the Leroy Parris boat re who will pay for what, seeing as she is god mother to Thompson’s kids, at least one or two of them and Mia, Harris, Parris are all be in bed together……they will be busy dancing around the whole issue with legalities.

    I do believe they are all B & DLP extremely afraid of each other and just watching to see who will unleash first…lol

    Who is that dude Watson and does he have qualifications as an engineer to make these statements….being a senator dont mean squat..
    Having Engineering qualification in Barbados does not stop some of them from talking crap. Take the engineer ,who a few weeks ago advocated the banning of all American type toilets , because of its design, with a fallible flapper valve. He was taken to task by two hands-on technically qualified Plumbing Technicians,and quite rightly so.
    Over the last week we heard Ministers Kellman and Lowe, severely criticising some of the best trucks to come out of the United States, just because their Government failed to carry out its due-diligence procedure when purchasing equipment,and subsequently neglecting to properly maintain same equipment.

    And these are the guys the 4 amigos will get to maintain the plasma monster.
    A toilet flushing guru and a back Street low cost bike mechanic mascarading as a plasma guru because he owns a 60″ plasma TV.
