Walter Blackman is BACK!

Walter Blackman - Actuary and Social Commentator

Walter Blackman – Actuary and Social Commentator

Walter Blackman the doyen of talk radio of the 90s is back!

An actuary by training who honed his skills in the business environment of North America for the past 21 years has returned to Barbados to establish a business of his vocation. Of note to the BU family is that he has declared an interest in being a member of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) by throwing his hat in the ring to be considered as a candidate in the next general election.

 Here is a comment posted to Barbados Underground by Walter Blackman on the 29 June 2016.

I have always put my actuarial profession ahead of politics.

In 1995, I left Barbados with the objective of acquiring 20 years of actuarial experience in the USA. I intended to use that experience to provide quality actuarial services on my return to Barbados, which turned out to be 2016. 21 years. The timing of my return was strictly professional.

I incorporated an actuarial consulting company in Barbados called Actreks Partners. I have now assumed the role of President & CEO and am in the process of building this company.

A lot of Barbadian business owners are moving towards retirement and are not setting aside enough funds to adequately provide for their retirement needs. I design pension plans for business owners and advise them how much money they can contribute to the pension fund yearly. The contributions they make to their pension plans enable them to minimize or eliminate the company’s corporation tax.

Besides designing pension plans, Actreks Partners will be providing a suite of services, including risk management and business consulting, to businesses and Government.

If my company is successful, I would be creating long-term, sustainable, white collar jobs for Barbadians. All I want you to do is wish me luck on that one, rather than talking about going back to “Murica”.

On the political front, you are hinting that I am committing political suicide by sticking with the DLP, whilst Are-we-there-yet, believes that, like clockwork, my mind is systematically ticking and carving out a path that leads to becoming prime minister. These considerations have not even entered my mind.

This is how I see it:
If the DLP wins, I have to work.
If the BLP wins, I have to work.

It has always been that way for me. I hope you understand why I am not interested in hopping on a bandwagon…

    @ Donna

    I read Alvin’s contribution re: “Alvin Cummins July 4, 2016 at 8:56 AM #: @Donna, You wrote:…” You must take us into your confidence and tell us what needs to be done, how much pain it will entail but what benefits we will eventually reap. …”. Erskine Sanford did this, to his honour, but he suffered “the slings and arrows” even though he was proven right.”

    “There is a severe penalty, ably assisted by yard ducks, for the honesty and integrity called for, especially when persons from the other side start out from a position of skepticism and perpetuate the dissemination of disinformation, misinformation and downright lies, to scuttle the ship even before it is in deep waters.”


    I have to agree with Alvin’s comments, Donna, he is absolutely correct. However, his comments are not confined to the political party of his choice.

    I recalled that, after the death of Tom Adams on March 11, 1985, Harold “Bree” St. John was appointed as the 3rd Prime Minister of Barbados.

    At that time, the unions were requesting ridiculous rates of salary increases for the public sector, which ranged up to about 15% at the bottom of the scale (I write subject to correction). Bree told the unions that the country was not in a position to offer such exorbitant rates and suggested more reasonable rates, which were subsequently rejected by the unions.

    I also recalled the famous Richie Haynes’ “back raise budget,” which was immortalized by the Mighty Gabby in the calypso “Back Raise.” The following year, on May 28, 1986, the DLP won the general elections with 24 seats to the BLP’s 3 seats.

    After Errol Barrow became Prime Minister, the unions returned to the bargaining table and ACCEPTED MUCH LOWER RATES of salary increases (LOWER than what Bree offered), because Barrow said that what was what the country was able to afford.

    Similarly, Bree was HONEST, “but he suffered “the slings and arrows” even though he was proven right.”

    And Alvin’s comments re: “There is a severe penalty, ABLY ASSISTED by YARD DUCKS, for the HONESTY and INTEGRITY called for, especially when PERSONS from the OTHER SIDE start out from a POSITION of SKEPTICISM and perpetuate the dissemination of disinformation, misinformation and downright lies, to scuttle the ship even before it is in deep waters,” are also APPLICABLE to Bree St. John’s situation.

    Members and supporters of BOTH political parties often ADMIT that Harold St. John was an HONEST Prime Minister. This is also the case with Erskine Sandiford.

    Do you see why I believe there are no DIFFERENCES between the BLP and the DLP?

    Piece…ya rocking, this must be the mantra for the next year and a half to remind voters what politicians are capable of….last elections someone was arrested for selling their vote…..

    Fruendel and Adriel swore they saw vote buying in the 2013 elections and as prime minister and attorney general never did anything about it or called the buyer’s names……..voters have to now make sure the vote buyers get their day in court too, by covering their own asses….

    You are the man….Piece.

    I wonder how the ACs like this “STOOPID” poster.


  5. TheGazer July 5, 2016 at 6:50 PM #

    The Gazer is back.

    Walter, please remember that a number of us are using pseudonyms whilst you are using your ‘real’ name. Many off us are not even invested in our comments, but you want your comments to inform us about the true Walter.

    You must exercise a great degree of caution in what you write and say.

    PUDRYR may be the creator of “stoopid cartoons” and may downplay his inteligence. I have been watching these “stoopid cartoons”, and I can tell you that they are good; you would think that some were created by some PR firm in New York; they are quite slick. Engage with caution.

    Take the advice given by Bushie and DPD.

    ACs…that’s the spirit, we want both political parties on board, keep everyone honest, the “stoopid” posters are being shared everywhere, it will keep the politicians honest and the voters out of jail.

    I am so glad you like them….is Piece not a genius, it’s pure genius, I am sure Fruendel, Adriel, Lashley and Donville loves them.

    @ TheGazer

    I am of the opinion that with each successive evolution and iteration in governance, the calling to politics does not attract our best, it brings our very worst.

    I am starting to understand how this battle that we face will unfold.

    Look around us.

    Our church populated by pederasts and pedophiles,

    Our schools with the same.

    Our students rebelling and TREMBLING their parts as an industry to be exported…” to quote a feller here … commercialization of wukking up… the next thing I expect to hear is that WeJonesing is going to be “streaming” the best boys across the island and giving them a “special prize” for the childrun are is reading well and private reading for the best boy,

    Any no Gazer it will not be a pubic reading “dat is whu de Minister of Eduhashun say sorrry he said “the teachers have to be more careful and when they use the bathrooms, not to leave their public hairs all over the toilet seats”

    Our police are now full of criminals, and the pubic service doing as they please.

    When every single phone and every single email of 300K bajans and 40K illegal guyanese get to see these “Stoopid Cartoons” and those who can vote, do vote to get rid of these bunglers, the grandson going keep helping de ole man,

    Of course it is possible dat dem going get head office to gi he a promotion and carry he way to Caymans but until den, he going help do ole man


  10. de pedantic Dribbler July 5, 2016 at 9:51 PM #

    @Pieces you know of course that too far east is always west or in simpler terms if you were to really get your wish (not 1 effing seat) that you could be spending some time at Jenkins, right !

    Mottley would lick up and lock up every shittee. And your backside first and foremost.

    So leh Dem get a few seats. If Walter is one then he would be able to start he lotta big foot moves to take over de organization and initiate these wondrous changes in ethics that he has promised.

    I too “am of the opinion that with each successive evolution and iteration in governance, the calling to politics does” bring out some terrible candidates. But on the face of it for Walter he is arguably as arrogant, intelligent, ambitious and willing to usurp the entrenched brigade as Errol Barrow was.

    Do you believe that the Errol Barrow of legendary brusque yet disarming manner and intellect would have presented here on BU any differently – assuming of course that he deigned to even enter the fray?

    Anyhow I know that ‘not 1 seat’ means kick dem to the curb as a minimal minority party so it should be all good.

    Consider as well, that it would be great governance to have a local pol who who comes back pon BU weekly and like Jeff give a real lesson on the affairs of government to us denizens here.

    Vote for de man for that reason alone…after he PROMISE that he will honour that weekly pledge. of course…LOL

    … And this time NOT like how his DLP had promised to be transparent and keeping the citizens informed. The lies of politics.

    @Are-We: I have not gone off the brother. It’s just that like you and most of BU I thought that he was going to enter the fray as part of a new party…a new Solutions Barbados maybe. So I too was shocked that he was back under a DLP tent.

    However, his fundamentals are still sound (to all that we can see) so if we were confident behind HIM last year then I can’t see no reason (yet) to change my support for him.

    But frankly I never was a partisan animal so I can vote the ‘best’ personality with no problem…that is not a norm in Bajan politics obviously.


  11. de pedantic Dribbler July 5, 2016 at 10:00 PM #

    LOLL, some would call that double negative (thus a positive) a real “F…” slip. Freudian, that is.

    No such intent. So to be better stated, accept a change: I can no reason (yet) to change my support for him.



  12. pieceuhderockyeahright July 6, 2016 at 6:37 AM #

    @ De Word

    I shall do that which our noted batsman and swordsman and decathlete is (was?) noted for doing here recently

    “@Pieces you know of course that too far east is always west or in simpler terms if you were to really get your wish (not 1 effing seat) that you could be spending some time at Jenkins, right !

    Mottley would lick up and lock up every shittee. And your backside first and foremost.”

    When the DLP beat the BLP 24:3 or when the BLP beat the DLP so resoundingly and left only David Thompson and Denis Kelman in the House of Assembly would you call either of these circumstances rather historical facts “too far east is west?”

    Then to continue to examine you normally, sensible comments here, and speak to your imputation, ON BEHALF OF THE LoE, Mia Mottley, or any previous and subsequent LoE, are you saying that a “pretend political strategist” who would want to try to show de grandson that his talents with the “stoopid cartoons” are of great use and that, if wisely positioned> could be a revenue stream?

    Are you further inferring that Peter Wickham, Lucille Moe and Debbie Hughes should, based on their recent foray into the St. Lucian landscape, doing no more or no less than de poor ole man is doing, should themselves face the wrath of Kenny Anthony when he gets back to power?

    It is that your are imputing some dastardly “terminate with extreme prejudice” qualities on the honourable leader of the Opposition of the Barbados House of Assembly Mia Mottley?

    Is it further sir that you my buddy whom I visit periodically in cold Climes of Canada would seek this day to warn me that, for the same activity that Mia and her Strategist Team, I would be imprisoned, or confined to the Green Gates Hospital or shot by the missing Remington 30.07 that disappeared during the stint of the former Commissioner of Police, who it is purported was dismissed from service for Wiretapping to former Prime Minister Owen Seymour Arthur?

    So you are saying that through some Divine Intervention and Heavenly Telephone that you have become aware that I, ole and decrepit man that the ole man is, is now on a hit list?

    Would that I were able to invoke some erstwhile blood oath between some band of merry soldiers of fortune or some grouping of state sanctioned assassins, or just plain hitmen extraordinaire, would that I were able to scream “Wolf” in some foreign tongue like Spanish perhaps “El Lope” and summon to my fallen corpse some retribution from beyond de poor ole man grave or cell at the Green gates.

    Would that such were available to these poor ole hands to reach out for such assistance, but sadly I do not have such luxury afforded me.

    So alas de ole man shall only do that which is afforded to him now, and mek a Poster to immortalize your words which veil some portentous thing called death, which many, having not tasted its cold fingers, are like you, wisely driven to give warning to kindred spirits.

    “Whuloss de ole man getting ole in trufe and “de tremblings of the cranium” setting in”. Sadly, its the case for us all @Pieces. For us all, alas.

    I noticed above I amended one error and in so doing created another. Wha we going to do.

    You said before ” the calling to politics does not attract our best, it brings our very worst”. All true, but as they say, in a world of blind men, a one-eyed woman is a great Queen.

    Keep your head and de grandson’s low and the posters high!

    Many people are shocked that there are those who actually have the talent and strength to challenge anything in the island, they have gotten used to decades of accepting everything including wrongdoing and crimes against themselves and families in silence….they have gotten used to being victims…Stockhom Syndrome.

    This is a brave new world…and in case no one is noticing…the politicians, ministers, their bribers and fellow criminals, have much more to lose, much more embarrassment to suffer….and all are currently exposed for the world to see and be aware of…..and monitor.

    ” There are countless other Barbadians and non-nationals who do business here with stories to tell.”

    Anyone of you BUvians have a story to tell ?


  22. Well Well & Consequences July 6, 2016 at 9:15 AM #

    “It’s so wrong, so wicked and greedy, so unfair, blacks, whites, in between, local and foreign people complain of this level of petty corruption each and every day on the island….but it has become so acceptable…use your video and voice recording devices…post attempts of corruption, extortion and bribery online…shame them, it willl reduce significanrly.

    As far as I know public servants are not supposed to take bribes or gifts…in any country…neither should they extort money from the public or busness people…expose them, do nothing and they will continue their extortion of everyone, I know these claims to be true, despite being paid a salary, they are still greedy, still steal.

    I know of one foreign person who cannot get his acres of land subdivided because ministers and civil servants from both governments want 2 acres of his land to get approval, he has had site visits, it’s just to pay the extortion money, so he has been waiting over 10 years while they wait for him to die….all scum.

    “MANY YEARS AGO I attended the wedding of a friend. It was held at Sam Lord’s Castle, so you can understand how long ago that was
    While eating dinner with some friends, one, a Bajan, who had just set up a branch of his pretty successful tourism-related company in another Caribbean country, spoke of his experience with corruption.

    A senior member of the government, he reported, met him at a social function and enquired of his immigration status and pointed out that with his investment he should have citizenship.
    The Bajan said he had never even given it thought, but the official insisted and directed him to a specific person at the Immigration Office, instructing him to tell him who had sent him, and that he give him a “tip”. By the end of the week he would have all his documents.

    So said, so done, he said.
    At the time we were boasting about how “honest” and “corruption-free” we were in Bim.
    I now venture to declare that if Barbados was ever free of corruption, it is no longer so. Corruption is endemic and no matter how much we pretend, it will not change the reality.
    Here are just a few of the incidents of which I am aware that convinced me corruption is deep-seated, pervasive across the public and private sector and has been present for a long time.
    Perhaps now it is more crass:
    Some years ago a member of my family went to the Barbados Licensing Authority (BLA) to take her test for a driver’s licence. She completed the course and when she got back to The Pine was told she had failed. She was disappointed to the point of tears. A few minutes later, however, her instructor returned with a message from the tester – pay him $250 and you will get your licence. She did and went home a qualified driver.
    Did she fail the test, or was she failed in order to provide supplemental income for the BLA employee?

    Some years ago a “very close personal friend” was preparing to build his home. It was his first experience with such a matter and he really did not know all the steps or the time frame within which he would be constrained to operate. What he knew was that he had the money and he was anxious to start.

    He reported he was told it would take a few months to get his plans through the Town and Country Planning Department and could not help but show his disappointment. He was taken aside, he related to me, and told that for a small “fee” of $500 he could have his approved plans back by the end of the week.
    So paid, so done!

    Some years ago a Barbadian businessman with a heart decided he was going to donate some land to a charitable cause, and he made his intentions known publicly. He covered the cost of all the statutory requirements for subdivision of a large tract of land and took those associated with the donation to show them what he was giving. They were delighted.
    Then it came time for the various civil servants to review the plans and give their approval – or denial. He reported that the process included a site visit, which went off without a hitch. At the end of the visit, however, one senior official pointed out to the businessman that with his wealth, it would not hurt him to “donate” the adjacent lot to him, the official.
    The businessman, in his usual style, told him – with a number of colourful metaphors included for emphasis – that it was not going to happen.

    Apparently, he did not know how right he was, because more than a decade later he is still awaiting word on his application and the charitable donation is still to take place.
    Some years ago one local firm bought another and sought approval to expand its footprint for manufacturing purposes. It was to facilitate a regional project that would have created several jobs and earned foreign exchange for the country. The plan was not approved and the operator appealed for a review.

    Site visit
    As part of the process he was invited to a site visit with officials from several Government ministries and departments. By the end, he said, he was almost 100 per cent sure the multimillion-dollar venture would be approved.

    At the end of the tour, he reported to me, he was asked by one of the officials with a background in financing for “a drop back to town” and he reluctantly agreed. When he got to the man’s office, he said, “he would not get out of my car and in the end he wanted to know if I did not have ‘something’ for him.
    “I cuss he so stink you would not believe it,” the businessman told me, adding that when permission finally came years later, the project was already dead. Neither the jobs nor foreign exchange ever came to life.

    I could offer a few more, like the BWA disconnection employee who some years ago told a customer whose water he was about to shut off, he would leave it running for a few more hours to give him time to go to the office and pay the bill – but first he had to give him “a little somet’ing”. But what’s the point of me quoting more stories. There are countless other Barbadians and non-nationals who do business here with stories to tell.

    Maybe this story might help to put Roy Morris’ seeming righteousness and “be honest with Bajans and sell some more papers” ploy in focus.

    Donkey years ago dere was a well known shop Keeper in Mia M cuntstituency whose name was always in the newspaper.

    “Police are questioning *** for being in possession of US$ xxxxxx” (he musee was related to Michael Lashes, and “Police are questioning *** for being in possession of stolen tools to the value of xxxx, and police are questioning *** for being in possession of stolen liquor (no body said Goddards Food Fair in Fontabelle) and up to now the RBPF MUST STILL BE “questioning” for receiving stolen goods and up to now no charges were ever laid.

    Our problem must be so deeply engrained because, as is shown by the use of asterices here, and by the language used many of us who have editorials, or TV shows, or Radio stations, and all the rest, we are a people fearful of the repercussions of libel and defamation by broadcasting unsubstantiated rumours.

    The fact is that, if Roy Morris, or any one of us really wanted to be a “force for change”, as opposed to just talking pretty bout these things, there would be so many things that we could do to make this happen.

    For example, much like Walter was proposing using the wukking up of the pubescent young girls as a foreign exchange earner, de ole man have now a service for all of wunna people’s called “De Sting” dat is going to be an earner of $$ for de ole man.

    For any of wunna peoples who wants to do one of dese exposees, de ole man is going to give two options

    (a) De poor man option – which is a podcast version and
    (b) De big man version – which is sound, pictures and video and ting

    Dis LiveCast service will be beamed right into the homes of malicious and officious bajans who wants to

    (a) busy up in people business 97% of de population
    (b) crush the occurence of Bribery and Crime and Graft 3% of the population
    (c) Do Dem Job to stop de graft e.g. the Police dem and de Courts 0% of the poop-ulation and (d) Do dem self appointed job to stop de dissemination of information related to people who tekking graft and bribes 5% of the poop-ulation

    I know dat de percentage add up to more dan 100% but Chris Stinkliar is me accunt-ant and as Minister of Fine Ants he gots to know how to c(o)unt. Whu After All

    Ammmmmmmm….yessss de ole man know dat some uh you going say, “why deep kicking de PPK man while he down and all uh dat.

    But wunna must remember dat de DLP, of which he seeketh their endorsement, STILL IS VERY MUCH ALIVE and kicking – KICK YOU AND ME TO THE JAWS OF DEATH!!

    That is the best tool, the public servants and minister aint want that…at all, at all, but it’s the only way to keep them all in check. ..that would undo the Peter Harris CCTV scam where he uses his information to bribe them and bend the ministers to his will….everyone will be starring in their own movies…

    …..and if the government ministers had any smarts, they would be making movies of the Harris, Parris, Maloney, Bizzy, Bjerkham, Tempro bribing events too, just to cover themselves, but they too dumb….I bet they are the only actors in their movies, taken by the bribers…lol

    Those recording devices are very powerful, a client recently used one on an attorney who thought he was being a smartass on the island, selling the client to the defense, client recorded his nonsense because the client felt that he was also recording the conversations for the defense.

    Client showed him the recording device, got back the file and then sent him a copy of the recording…checkmate.

    That would keep him quiet and anytime the client is in a pissy mood…act on the recording.

    The technology can be used wisely and carefully.

    @ pieceuhderockyeahright,

    We still have to give Morris his due for what he wrote in a so called mainstream newspaper.

    It adds to what the BU maguffees have been saying on this blog.

    Now that we have cell phone cameras and digital sound recorders people will now be able to expose some of the “corruption”


  31. Well Well & Consequences July 6, 2016 at 11:32 AM #

    Lol…Piece…it was that donkey 50.. aka Fiddy cents, with no sense.

    Your grandson is a genius Piece…he will find his niche, there is one there..particullarly for front end and backend engineers, he will know what I mean. Barbados is still 10-15 years behind in such things. That’s the way the ministers want it, keep everyone backward and pimps or yardfowls.

    Hants…everyone knows what the ministers and too many public servants do.

    The dude with the land I spoke about is an elderly white dude…very, very good and dear friend of mine…”racist” that I

    Having not seen for the last 39 comments and 4 posters+1 with a 5 point on how to stop votes buying in 2018, It seams the WaltHer PPK has been push farther underground or off the ground


  33. Bush Tea July 6, 2016 at 3:10 PM #

    @ Watchman
    Skippa, why don’t you leave Walther alone ..and get back to your campaign to remove the blockage of the canal with boulders nuh? You don’t see that the rains are here? You waiting fuh another Carew-type flood?


  34. ac. July 6, 2016 at 3:31 PM #

    Walter did the right thing stop the blp operatives dead in their tracks and move on. In any case all the swords were broken not even a show of blood on one of them.steupsee


  35. Watchman July 6, 2016 at 8:29 PM #

    @ Bush Tea

    You must have seen on TV and heard in the news how the PM, ministers and top civil servants love to please the Red and White people, the blockage was built/done by a White Person, a Black man Frank Thornhill, the CTO of MTW, to this day refused to do his duty
    If you ask the PM of Barbados what he (PM) think the Black man in his campaign to have the blockage in the watercourse corrected should do, I am sure the PM would say let a CAREW TYPE FLOOD correct the problem, Bushie, the newest well arm ( WaltHer PPK) DLP campaigner is a BU Poster/blogger, ask him what he think .


  36. Hants July 6, 2016 at 10:43 PM #

    Thanks to cell phone camera video the truth of the execution of another black man was just shown on cnn.


  37. Bush Tea July 7, 2016 at 7:12 AM #

    @ Watchman
    Boss, you too smart fuh Bushie…
    Yuh right though … the politicians all seem to be modified house niggas ..whose mission in life is to please whitey and transfer our money into their hands.

    Have your friend considered building an even BIGGER (and higher) road on HIS side of the watercourse? He could start with some big-ass rocks….

    Shiite!! …wuh if they let the white woman build one …how they going stop him?
    …and if they move his…they would haffa move hers too – ent it?
    Hint Hint!!!
    No charge – send any donations to the Red cross society. 🙂


  38. Bush Tea July 7, 2016 at 7:19 AM #

    @ Hants
    Those white people will eventually kill all-o-wunna ….one by one.
    But apparently wunna like the albino-life enough to put up with the risks.
    Anyway, since wunna living in THEIR place, they ain’t much wunna can do.

    Yuh mean here in Bim, where BLACKS running things, with the opportunity to run a FAIR AND BALANCED ship, we are having the same shiite…with albinos doing as they like?

    Now THAT …is what you call “brass bowlery”.
    Wunna just have simple “wickedness”…


  39. Walter Blackman July 7, 2016 at 7:41 AM #

    Thank you for what you do.

    Of course, you would have noted that I disregarded the frantic warnings of my “advisers” and opted to honestly and openly tackle the issues and questions which were hurled at me. These issues and questions ranged from the friendly to the deadly.

    My positions, on all of the issues raised, have been neither whimsical nor vacillating. In fact, I have defiantly stood up and defended my points of view whilst at the same time expressing my agreement with alternative opinions which I considered to be reasonable and fair.

    In answering these questions, I deliberately opened the “window of my soul” to BU readers because I firmly believe that if I am offering myself to someone, that person has a right to know what he/she is getting. To BU readers, all I can say is that I have given you what I have, and now I am asking you to give me your vote* of confidence in return.

    David, you would have also noted that some snide, underhand insinuations were made by “rabble-rousers” to suggest that you are giving me special treatment by creating this post.
    I would recommend that you build a profile of each and every candidate who will be contesting the next general election, and create a similar post here on BU for such persons. You can start now with the “certainties” and invite them to share their ideas and answer some questions here on BU. Fair is fair.

    We will then be able to determine those who are willing to stand up to BU scrutiny.

    Again, thank you.

    *I think it was Hants who reminded me that I am a politician and will be treated like one on BU. I am now reminding him that a good politician must never leave without asking for “the vote”.


  40. Sargeant July 7, 2016 at 7:43 AM #

    There is another video making the rounds showing the aftermath of a police shooting of a Black man in St. Paul, Minnesota.


  41. David July 7, 2016 at 8:05 AM #


    We do what we do based on the judgement of the BU household and not to respond to voices driven by ‘agendas’. Continue to share your ideas. You have courage, with the exception of Donville not another boy, or girl dare to post under their name on BU.


  42. de pedantic Dribbler July 7, 2016 at 8:09 AM #

    @Hants, I am not trivializing the topic of your 10:43 PM post but other than the descriptive connotation “Black man” not sure why you posted in at this ‘Blackman’ blog!

    Bajans absolutely do feel this basic pain because their police dept does not operate in this cavalier manner but in every serious sense the real connotations from this execution is seen in many areas in Barbados. State sponsored executions the Bajan way.

    So frankly your post could be better placed in any of :

    ** “…Final Refutation of Hal Gollop’s absurdity”: The blatant execution of honestly discussing issues.

    ** ‘From Magistrate to Judge….”: The complete breakdown of a turgid, out dated criminal justice system that executes the minds and lives of so many.

    ** ‘… Governance In An Age Of Intergenerational Conflict, Revolution & Change’

    ** ‘Fearmongering and Security at our Peril’

    … or even the most recent blog,’The Human Unemployment Rate in Barbados…’. Those lost in these bogus stats are those executed mentally daily.

    By the way they say that over 500 people about 20+% of them Black have been killed by cops so far this year…and that was increased by one more overnight. There have been 16 police killings – some justified surely – in these 7 July days so far alone.

    The US is the only developed country that maintains such a strong gun culture and the only one with these astronomical state sponsored killings. This July rate alone will surely outstrip that in UK for the entire year. US cops kill more perps in a day than UK cops have done for some entire frigging years!

    Just like Bajans accept alarming corruption and are seemingly powerless to change it, American Blacks (from PhD’s to peons) accept that they MUST respect and obey law officers despite the alarming disgust they face from these officers.

    And the real serious issue is that there is no end to this folly in sight, whether out-of-control immediate death by ‘corrupt’ cops or slow death by corrupt politicians!


  43. de pedantic Dribbler July 7, 2016 at 8:20 AM #

    Oh my gosh, I need to refill that prescription for the Alzheimers meds.

    That should read: Bajans absolutely do NOT feel this basic pain because their police dept does not operate…


  44. Sargeant July 7, 2016 at 8:26 AM #

    Not sure why you are picking on “Hants” but there are many posts unrelated to the topic prior to his post as is the BU norm.

    If you didn’t appreciate it ignore same and go back to the subject at hand as is your prerogative.


  45. Watchman July 7, 2016 at 8:41 AM #

    @ Bush Tea
    @ Walter Blackman

    You ask Watchman to leave Walter alone, the watchman have more respect for Walter than the Leader of the BLP and MP for St. James Central,


  46. Sargeant July 7, 2016 at 8:49 AM #


    The title of the blog is “Walter Blackman is back” and we have heard that he is vying for the nomination of a constituency in St. Michael which leads to the question “Is he the only declared candidate”? Walter may be a respected individual with strong opinions but winning the nomination and winning the GE are not sure things and there seems to be a tendency to coronate Walter by DLP supporters on the blog and denounce him by others.

    Of course I am overlooking the notion that the fix may be in and he is the “preferred candidate” and will win the nomination but the BLP will give him no quarter so my point about winning the GE still stands.


  47. David July 7, 2016 at 9:11 AM #


    Have been trying to find out who are ‘working’ the constituency for the nod with difficulty. BU’s position has always been that a candidate should have as a prequsite on the bio a track record of serving the constituency. Not sure of Walter qualifies if this is a criterion.


  48. de pedantic Dribbler July 7, 2016 at 10:14 AM #

    LOLL, @Sargeant “picking on Hants”. You normally distill information more astutely than that. I used Hants posts to link my ‘rant’ of police sanctioned deaths to the indifference in general Bajan society.

    What is there about Hants’ post to pick on him! LOLL. But you are doing exactly what I did right…’picking on me’ to post your rant . LOLLLL.


  49. Alvin Cummins July 7, 2016 at 7:57 PM #

    The Poster Master,
    Whoever that is. Red words in a red background don’t cut it.
    Donna, don’t forget it was once 26to 2, or some figure like that.


  50. Hants July 7, 2016 at 8:37 PM #

    @ de pedantic Dribbler re your post July 7, 2016 at 8:09 AM #

    I was going to respond to you using flying pucks eh but……


  51. de pedantic Dribbler July 7, 2016 at 9:28 PM #

    @Hants, you were the path for my post not a target. How could you be a target of wrath on a subject like that!!!!!

    Glad to know that you figured that out before your ‘flying pucks’. I’ll remember next time to use the blogmaster as my glide path to a response….as I generally do.

    But at that time you were the only one who had touched on that subject.


  52. Hants July 7, 2016 at 10:21 PM #


  53. Donna July 8, 2016 at 5:24 PM #

    Trust one-eyed Alvin to misinterpret in an election mode. Skippa, my 29:1 referred to Walter’s believing that one man, himself, could change the culture of the DLP. The 29 referred to the other 29 candidates. The 1 referred to Walter, the Lone Ranger. So 29 to 1 is murdah.


  54. David July 8, 2016 at 7:09 PM #

    Suppose Walter wins the SME nomination and seat it gives him the opportunity to institute unprecedented changes in the DLP. We never know what the future holds. And history is replete with examples of one individual making a difference.


  55. Watchman July 8, 2016 at 9:00 PM #

    @ David

    In 2008 a man, by the name Of David Thompson, was given an opportunity to institute unprecedented changes, not only in the DLP but also in Barbados, that individual is dead,but in the 2 years he did make a difference, we are seeing and feeling the worse opportunity cost to the Barbadian people for an opportunity granted, Thompson put in motion some DLP cohorts on a depleting mode,

    @Walter Blackman, will you ask Chris Sinckler about the yacht Amazing Grace down at Port Ferdinand..

    @AC, what’s the name of Dale Marshall’s yacht? No honor among thieves!


  57. pieceuhderockyeahright July 16, 2016 at 2:34 PM #

    @ Walter

    As you will see from the attached poster i have kept my promise not to show your face in posters that relate to you.

    I guess that by that alone it would mean that I am not a politician because I have kept my promise (SO FAR)



  58. pieceuhderockyeahright July 16, 2016 at 5:49 PM #

    And for Walter who I know has not moved from his computer and has been hitting the refresh key for 35 minutes here is the much awaited item.

    “Fumbles is hit for six”

    And If you think that the poster is a doozie, wait until you see the comic

    And the animation

    And the Video Skit

    Already a deal is in the making with Lucas Studios for “Hit Us Six Times” Part 2

    In this sequel it gets real rough when all 16 of the demons get hit six times a piece with a Newbery Cricket bat.

    Due to the violence in the cartoons Parental Advice Warning have been plastered all over the videos.

    The only part of the movie that has sex in it is when they ask WeJonesing what is his sex and he insist that the bat is any ways that is exposing too much of the movie.

    If wunna want more wunna got to wait till de movie launch
