Dwight Sutherland Serving Two MAMs, Mottley and Maloney

There is the saying, ‘if yuh start wrong, yuh gine end wrong’.

A lot has been written and said about MAM (Mark Maloney) and his latest Town Planning Department (TPD) breach (controversy) Hard Rock Cement. His name was mentioned by Governor Delisle Worrell when he delivered one of his closed door Economic Reviews. In the recent No Confidence Motion brought against the government by MAM (Mia Mottley) Maloney’s name was again mentioned several times. In the same way she catapulted the Cahill Energy Scam to wide national attention, she has apparently done the same to Mark Maloney and his company Hard Rock Cement.

The BU household has joined many who have become enthralled by the reported exploits of Maloney. The current debate over his refusal to respond to an enforcement order issued by the Town Planning department (TPD),  who then flipped it to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Charles Leacock, who has since requested additional information from Chief Town Planner Mark Cummins to clarify the order is the stuff Hollywood is built.

Although Barbadians have been labelled creatures who have a short attention span, surely we have not forgotten it was in January of last year Mark Maloney announced that a top of the line cement plant would be constructed next to the flour mill on Barbados Port Authority lands. The verbal indiscretion and insight into how decisions are made in Barbados have now come into the light. His announcement then forced a hurried response by Chief Town Planner Mark Cummins to the effect no building construction application had been made. The Business Development and Operations Consultant Dwight Sutherland was given the job to explain away Maloney’s ‘faux pas’ of sorts which he attributed to overexcitement.

During the No Confidence debate Mia Mottley was relentless in her prosecution of Maloney and the authorities who have not been able to respond to what she labelled TPD breaches. While on her feet government member using sotto voce were quick to ask about Dwight Sutherland’s role in the Hard Rock Rock Hard affair. She responded that it would be INVIDIOUS of her to deal with the Sutherland involvement during the motion.The meaning of the word – likely to arouse or incur resentment or anger in others. Members of the BU household immediately discussed what she meant and concluded she did not want to upset her junior colleague.

BU is of the view given the aggressive public position the leader of the Opposition and Barbados Labour Party Mia Mottley has taken – and rightly so – makes it easy for Sutherland to resign his job as a Consultant with Maloney’s Hard Rock Cement company. Given Sutherland’s role and his public mouthings as a representative of Hard Rock Cement, it is obvious that he was involved in TPD discussions. It is obvious he was privy to the direction the company was about to take last year. Even if he was not aware the time has come to select one master. There is another saying – you can’t serve two masters.

It is a matter of principle Mr. Dwight Sutherland M.P. and Business Development Manager and Consultant. All are watching you as you construct a career in public service.

    Art….nothing in the DLPs manifesto has been realized, just the opposite…lots of hiding, sneaking around, lying, stealing money, colluding with crooks, signing scam documents, withholding information on the economy from the public, ignoring the auditor general’s report, they are useless as leaders, penny ante…I would not want them cleaning up after my dog, they have no loyalty to the taxpayers.

    Just give them another year and ya will hear how many lies and outright deceit they will be coming to the taxpayer’s with…..because they need those black votes….less than 10 thousand minorties on the island cannot return them to parliament. … I am sure they are practicing their lies all like now.

    Right AC…

    The DLP is in power and the voters can crtique there performances on what they have been able to deliver and what they have not.
    As for Mia her willinginess to distance and separate herself from social and economic issues is not a pox or a plague in the dlp but should be of concern to herself and members of her party along with her supporters who are asking for change and in depth transparency

    AC…DLP will be kicked out.

    Why you did not speak to Bizzy on BU this morning…ya like to kiss ass and be a yardfowl, that was the perfect opportunity…lol

    @ac June 1, 2016 at 9:37 AM “Mia has yet to give clear and concise views on…same sex marriages which has social and econmic ramificiations with the potential of regulating many changes in a country.”

    I have said it once before and I will say it again. Unlike Europeans and Americans, and Middle Easterners (both Muslim and Jewish) who are all OBSESSED with marriage, Bajans are not that into marriage. Not heterosexal marriage, not polygymous marriage, not homosexual marriage, not LBGT marriage, not religious marriage, not civil marriage.

    The truth is that we as a people are NOT that big on marriage.

    So why should we expend time and energy, and thought in embracing the Middle Eastern/Eurocentric OBSESSION with marriage?

    Mia should say and do EXACTLY NOTHING about marriage. Not heterosexual marriage not homosexual marriage, not any marriage.

    Let the marriage OBSESSED from any place, religion or culture do their do about marriage.

    Leave us out of it please.

    However she (or the DLP, they still have plenty of time) should do something about maternity benefits which have not changed since 1967.

    Shame, shame, shame on ALL of the political parties in Barbados none of which have done anything about this situation for more than 49 years.

    The reproducers of the next generation of Bajans have been constrained by a 12 week period of maternity since 1967. We know tht 12 weeks is woefully inadequate. The Barbados government (us) have agreed with the U.N. that babies (the next generation of Bajan workers) should be solely breast fed for a minimum of 26 weeks, and yet for nearly 50 years we have denied our infants their due.

    The question is: Why?

    Anybody can answer “B” or “D”

    And yet we worry our heads about what big people do in their bedrooms; and about whether MP’s deserve their 10% which they lost a year or two ago; even while we are content to tief 14 weeks of breast milk from every Bajan born since 1967.

    Shame, shame on us as a people who are so eager to embrace other people’s issues while neglecting our own infants.

    The calypsonian was right “the white people laughing at we.”

    “The DLP is in power and the voters can critique there (their) performances on what they have been able to deliver and what they have not.”

    @ AC

    Mia Mottley is definitely residing rent free in your head.

    Former DLP political strategist Hartley Henry said the strategy he used for the DLP to help DEM win the 2008 general elections, was to place a significant focus on the leadership of Owen Arthur. You seem to be pursuing a similar path.

    This piss poor DLP administration has been performing so poorly that you want to use Mottley as the scapegoat in an effort to shift the focus from piss poor Fruendel Stuart and his team, to Mottley.

    Unfortunately for you, only yard-fowls will buy into that strategy.

    However, don’t worry, I will critique the DLP’s “performances on what they have been able to deliver and what they have not,” based on the promises made in both the 2008 and 2013 election manifestos.

    what ever works bro ..whatever works however bear in mind she has a long history compromised with plenty illegalities some of which OSA and her members made reference Her political vine has plenty low hanging fruit which would not be hard to find
    Her only refuge would be to give the electorate defined and distinct alternatives to the challenges of the barbados economy which would definitely separate refined and improved her image as a serious contender for becoming PM
    the fact being that she has overused her strategy of scrutiny and criticism and a bigger window asking for change via solutions would emerge becoming larger as the election gets closer
    Either she has the answers or she does not


  9. Well Well & Consequences June 1, 2016 at 7:58 PM #

    AC…why you stuck back here, frighten for the other links.

    They exposing all the nasty things DLP been doing to taxpayers for the last 8 years, lies, deceit, corruption, Bizzy said bribes….all the nasty things DLP did to the people.., hmm, hmm, hmmm.

    But don’t worry we know BLP did it too, but they were not the ones doing it for the last 8 years.., that is where ya got a problem…lol

    And Freundel Stuart “gives the electorate defined and distinct alternatives to the challenges of the Barbados economy which would definitely separate refined and improved his image as a serious contender for becoming PM again?”

    Extra long Stupse!!!!

    Donville Inniss is silently fielding in slips waiting on Stuart to edge the ball.


  11. Well Well & Consequences June 2, 2016 at 2:37 AM #

    Both Donville and Stuart are useless to the island’s economy, Donville is salivating to become prime minister with his nasty attitude and sense of self importance….. bad for the island.

    Fruendel is trying to wash all the filth off himself, but cannot bring himself to disowm thiefing Leroy Parris…bad for the island that thieves and friendships with thieves takes precedent over the welfare of people on the island in Fruendel’s playbook…..bad for the island.

    The electorate will make a tactical and fatal error trusting any of these politicians.

    Can anyone recall if Mr. Sutherland attended the prostest that was held by the leader of the opposition?


  13. ac June 2, 2016 at 7:47 PM #

    So Mia dressed in white is symbolic of what? Like agard said a sleeping giant can be awakened but there is no cure for a demon dressed in white
