The Jobby Must Stop – Chris Sinckler Misled the House

Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler has been caught ‘misleading’ the country during the 2016 Estimates Debate in a Lower House last week. The fact that the House is presided over by a thief only serves to expose another strand that will be interwoven with the others to create the legacy of the Stuart government. In the process the psyche of the Bajan and the reputation of Barbados continue to be battered.

Surely when the leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley raised the issue of whether Sinckler was a member of the Cabinet that approved an increase in fees for Directors of the Board of the National Insurance Board, it should have been a case of yes or no. If he was absent from Cabinet meeting one must assume the Cabinet Secretary circulates minutes to record positions taken by the Cabinet. Further, even if Sinckler got it wrong (let us give him the benefit of the doubt) not a single colleague on the front bench felt duty bound to sotto voce a clarification?

NIS-Fees Document

After the leader of the Opposition went public with the ubiquitous document which fell from a truck only then did Sinckler do the honourable thing and publicly admitted to erring on national radio. One can speculate the reason the Attorney General Adreil ‘Searching for Mia’sLEC’ Brathwaite and the teefing Speaker referred a matter to the Committee of Privileges is connected.

What BU cannot understand is why has Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler not tendered his resignation or asked to resign from Cabinet. Is there no honour left among honourable members of parliament?

The shit must stop!

    Understood, given the modus operandi how this government has handled communication we need to be so wary when ministers out of the blue begin to call the talk show. It must be part of a plan.

    It seems to be a large and bitter pill for the AC consortium of yard-fowls to swallow that Sinckler admitted he lied.

    I’m sure the BLP operatives GOT EXACTLY what they were HOPING for.

    After years of being accused of “misleading” the country with manipulated economic data, Mottley (and Chris Sinckler by his own admission) PROVED BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT the MONIKER “Stinkliar” is ACTUALLY APPLICABLE to Sinckler.

    In the lead up to the 2008 general elections, Brass Tacks facilitated the DLP’s political agenda by allowing DLP MPs, candidates, members and supporters to call the program on a daily basis or sit in the studio with moderators.

    Art…that bitter pill should choke them, they rejoice when politicians lie to taxpayers, steal from them, sell them out, practice corruption against them, all so yardfowls can benefit from those wicked acts…let them choke to death, they like to enable, condone and justify evil…serves them right, let the world see the uselessness of yardfowls.

    This is exactly where these scamps are going with this.

    Watch carefully as this starts to read like a page out of the Book on “How Political Parties must show that they Care” pg iii under Introduction and again on page 14.

    “A government (must pretend to be) committed to ensuring people from diverse backgrounds can access social services that are specific to their needs.

    “When challenged about blatant lies, one should gently retract the lies while not loosing face, generally best effected by a lick pooch specialist at a call in radio programme with a doggie sucker who will not probe too much (David Ellis)

    “In the face of incontrovertible evidence showing you to be a liar, depending on the extent of the lie, it may be best to have some sort of national red herring that will take the brunt of public opinion off you. Things like Water Shortages, or pending strikes, permit one breating space”

    Note bene. “Around Election time it will be necessary to be extremely vigilant with documents in the registry and items that you may have signed or sent by email”

    “Shredders are critical and the transfer of staff at one’s registry and file keeping offices MUST BE managed with care so as not to let people know that they are being shifted because of their possible allegiances”

    If one’s government has wire tapping machinery, this type of equipment is best deployed and managed by trusty pooch lickers and, in the absence of such staffing requirements, hire bullers, wickers for whom you have evidence of their indiscretions or persons who are financially strapped and who you can buy (Hamilton Lashley)”

    If all this fails, employ the Ronald WeJonesing strategy of cracking a few skulls and killing a few people under a carefully executed “national security” exercise where the Chinese Military equipment under the bilateral aid agreement signed by your Attorney General Adriel Nitwit, can be mobilized against the Peeple.”

    Happy Independence Day and 50th Anniversary

    Barbadians need to critically ask a lot of the actors in our House of Assembly. We need local media to step up and play its role as a watchdog in our system of democracy.

    Who listened to the Senate debating the Appropriations Bill?

    “@Artax: You are of the view VoB actively and knowingly promoted individuals of a DLP leaning?”

    @ David

    Firstly, let us “critically analyse” “Brass Tacks,” “Tell It Like It Is,” and the moderators. It is interesting to note that during the lead up to the 2008 general elections, both call-in-programmes utilised the services of approximately 12 (or more) individuals to perform moderator duties, who (coincidentally) were either PRO DLP or SYMPATHETIC to the DLP’s cause. This fact was evidenced by their REACTION and BEHAVIOUR towards callers who presented a “BLP perspective.”

    Of the resident moderators, which included David Ellis, Dennis Johnson and Stetson Babb; Ellis always played his “the devil’s advocate” role in favour of the DLP, while Johnson and Babb, more often than not, remained neutral.

    Secondly, (also coincidentally) there was a CERTAIN GROUP of CALLERS who, on a DAILY BASIS, CALLED both programmes in the same “BATTING ORDER,” to criticize the then BLP administration and speak the “gospel according to the DLP.”

    Thirdly, members of the then DLP Opposition and prospective candidates were seemingly given the opportunity (with extended time) on both programs, to articulate proposed DLP policies, without any meaningful challenges from the moderators. Coincidentally, they were able to “get through” to the programs, ESPECIALLY at those times when CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS were MODERATING.

    Fourthly, after the 2008 general elections (again coincidentally), those SPECIFIC MODERATORS were REWARDED by being APPOINTED to the Senate, as BOARD MEMBERS or CONSULTANTS at various statutory corporations.

    Since I’m not one who believes in conspiracy theories and I am not suggesting such. Perhaps the evidence, which suggested “VoB actively and knowingly promoted individuals of a DLP leaning”, may have been circumstantial and the chain of events was merely coincidental.

    @ the cunt AC

    Mottley cannot open a can of worms when worms were already crawling out of the can. It was just a matter of time before one was able to pinpoint and find evidence as to where that stench was coming from. You really think, Sista Pimp, that Mottley had to provide evidence that Chris is a bold face liar, that the 3PM is a wolve in sheep’s clothing, that Donville Inniss is an acting rogue, that the Gaw darn cotton picking DLP administration are into the practice of cover up and hide. Do you not realise that this government believes that the best way to keep their shite hidden is in the open. They are banking that repetitive shite doing is a psychology upon the minds of bajans, whom they all think are all ignorant, would eventually result in acceptance. No amount of strategy is going to work for this administration in the coming election. The only way they can win this next election and win more than three seats is if they got more money to buy votes than the last election.

    What some farmers and university researchers need to do is find out how we can turn the common grass on the field into eatable food because after all the measures to fix the economy is done that is all that the poor people will have to eat. Thing frigging hard already. anymore taxes will make people shite out their pores.

    This is the proverbial classic Orwellian type ‘fessed-upped’ cycle of life.

    ” Alabama (USA) bill demands teachers take class on how NOT to have affairs with students in state with highest rate of such trysts ”

    Clearly a similar bill in needed in Barbados for our Parliamentarians: How not to succumb to the trysts that offer the gratification to double and triple your net worth on the pay of a MP”.

    Oh lawd….life is so amazing!

    And then ISIS brings us back to reality so forcefully!

    I read in Nation News that Mr Sinckler had apologized to Ms Motley, but if you read what he is reported to have said, he admits to having made a mistake , but nowhere do I see an apology.If you admit to a mistake, does it automatically mean you are sorry?


  20. David March 25, 2016 at 10:32 AM #

    He stated on the talk show that he conceded to Mottley’s point or something to that effect.

    I’ll say it really clearly: There is no justice at all. Polite people must work more than 8 hours a day just to satisfy their basic needs. Most of them are facing the “vicious circle”. Yes, this all is caused by this system, which supports bad people like politician (or just thieves). I’m not from USA, but I think, it’s similar in the both countries. I’m a truck driver and expect for the navigation system which I got from the government ( ) I didn’t get nothing else. I have survived 3 accidents and guess how the country rewarded me … Nowise!!! C’mon guys, it’s time for a revolution

    What then did he actually say to prompt all and sundry to conclude it was an apology?
