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…

    Methinks that you flatter yourself too much

    So let me first disavow you of that notions.

    While it might be hard for you to believe there is a party called the Demonic Lying party which has been operating in Barbados for a number of years pre independence and post independence.

    You might not have heard this but for the last 9 years it has been effing up the economy.

    They are my target and you are just going to be collateral damage so to speak.

    Because two men whom I respect greatly have begged for you I will try to see that my grandson wont put put your face on any of the posters but the rest of them going get them fecundity posterized to the max.

    Perhaps Walter you should include the Minister of Health in this lot.

    I don’t know that I want any Trade Minister looking out for my health.

    When I have a health problem, I don’t go to the trader in my village (good man though he is) I go to my doctor for all things health related.

    I have said already on this blog and will say here again. I have had a child become so sick from sub standard food (for which I paid top standard dollars) that the child required 2 visits to the doctor, 5 days sick leave from school, and he lost 20% of his body weight during that week.

    We seem to forget that children eat these foods too, and that contaminated food which will not kill a fat guy like Donville can nearly kill a small child.

    Remember: OUR CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN EAT THESE FOODS TOO.

    I don’t want ANY Minister of Trade to be the arbiter of whether or not food is safe to eat. It is entirely a conflict of interest.

    pieceuhderockyeahright,
    Fifty years ago, the Barbadian economy could be described as small, fragile, open, weak, and vulnerable.

    Since then, Barbadians were told that so much restructuring has taken place (including public sector reform), and such a strong economic foundation has been laid, that Barbados is well on its way to achieving first world status by 2020.

    Today, in 2016, the Barbadian economy can be described as small, fragile, open, weak, and vulnerable. No change. The boasts and promises made were just meaningless propaganda.

    I have now given you an idea of some of the first set of faces that you should put on your posters. “Reid” my lips.

    Your threats have me trembling like the posteriors of those young girls that David showed on the video. Therefore, please convey an extremely frightened “thank you” to the two gentlemen for me.

    pieceuhderockyeahright,
    In very much the same way you have succeeded in running some Barbadians from BU, I guarantee you that you will succeed in running many BLP supporters from the ballot box.

    Before the 2008 election, Gregory Nicholls practically told the Barbadian electorate, “We don’t need your votes. The score is already 4-0.”

    Now, before the “2018” election, pieceuhderockyeahright is telling BLP supporters: “You can afford to stay home. I, the BU bully, have already determined that the election results are : BLP 30, DLP 0.”

    I sincerely hope that you suffer a serious backlash from a sea of “yellow shirts” for your premature bragging.

    @Walter, many moons back now it seems I mentioned that you were doing yourself a great disservice by your various retorts. You were unmoved and choose to remain uninformed.

    So not surprised that it didn’t take too long for you to get side-swiped by @Pieces with his “… ‘trembling like the posteriors of those young girls that David showed on the video…’ The words of aspiring DLP politician PPK right before he went to sleep on July 4th. Well we can only guess where his mind is…”

    Pay attention of course to the last sentence!!!

    Look, I don’t know what bassa-bassa it is with you and Pieces but you have already lost a few points to him in this game (not sure if the right analogy is cricket or tennis).

    Everyone knows you are intelligent, accomplished and all that but other smart men have had their backsides trapped due to their ‘arrogance’ of intelligence. So although this palaver here is rather innocuous yet you get caught in a sticky mouse trap already.

    So as an onlooker, I say again do not do yourself an injustice. The man Pieces wid he grandson is as sharp as tack despite his old synapses. And whereas we know that you know you just as smart consider that he ain’t gotta watch his words and can use yours to fecundity you up!.

    Look how he ketch you so ‘looking at young girls bottoms’. And he didn’t even worry to brandish that Black female asset item. That one was a dozy.

    So continue to practice your serve or bowling or whatever but either up your game or get a better AC type person to help with your trigger finger. You have a long road ahead…and even though this is Barbados you still need to minimize certain type of gaffes; checking young girls backsides would be one of those!

    And by the way, this in got one iota to do with nah Lord’s anointed. The Lord would wash the bunch of corrupt politicians straight to hell if he really handled this as he should!

    “I sincerely hope that you suffer a serious backlash from a sea of “yellow shirts” for your premature bragging.”

    Does that “sea of yellow shirts” include the ‘Rent-a-Vote’ electoral cowards who were ‘b(r)ought’ at the voting booths in their large numbers in February 2013?
    Do you plan to witness (just like the AG and PM) these electorally fraudulent transactions and do nothing about it because they would be to your advantage in ensuring a seat in the once august but now pathologically corrupted and ‘yellowed’ HoA?

    The thing is, Walther (the sharpshooter in the game of moral hit and miss), that the bankrollers of that 2013 ‘bought’ campaign are seeing the writing on the electoral wall and- like opportunistic greedy rats- are jumping ship; from the self-declared financially-embarrassed Parris to the embattled jumped-up Maloney who has declared his intentions to stop all investments in BIM and declare the country to be persona non-grata to foreign investors. No investments simply means no future returns in the form of guaranteed government contracts and certainly no 5 &10% lowedown kickbacks to ministers, party and friends.

    So where would be the source of funds for your DLP 2018 (or before) electoral outing?
    Who will be ‘backing’ this ‘Blackhorse’ in a race where a large proportion the voting punters are unemployed youths living in some of the most depressed conditions in the St. Michael conurbation.
    Will it, Wally, come from the war chest still lying in the family First account?

    Surely you remember that well thought-out and catchy DLP slogan used many elections ago in another riding of the East and which once brought a smile to the pursed lips of a former PM:
    ‘Who will back a Johnny (C), vote D H for DLP!’
    Now you would not want to see Fumble undermine your chances in your targeted SME riding. So just don’t mention anything about this vote-buying business, ya hear!

    Maybe PUDRYR, the grandmaster of the BU Lodge aligned to the Order of Melchizedek, could design a poster to ‘Big-up’ the current underdog Wally:
    “Who would back a Wally unless you are full of Folly”: DLP 2; BLP ???.

    As for the Bizzy, Maloney clowns, they both thought themselves the true leaders of the parliament and country for so long that neither of them thought it possible that anyone would challenge them, the slaves in parliament enabled them for so many years, they thought that it was time to publicly assert their dominance over the ministers, they were too impatient though and that backfired.

    Maloney is talking out of his a**, he can’t even brag and boasst these days, he is too busy working on damage control since the bloggers let him know what for, he is now more worried about the investors he gets money from dropping him like a hot potato, now that they know the truth about him and his nasty, fraudulent ways and that is his current reality…..lol. He has no power to stop investments from going to Barbados, because if his reputation, investors would avoid Barbados.

    The people will have to determine that idiots and weak bribetakers should not occupy their parliament as leaders the island ever again, get this crowd gone once and for all…they are a train wreck which the island and people cannot afford any longer.

    Speaking to some folks yesterday who no longer keep up with news and they were shocked to hear that a government could become so inept and weakened by corruption, men and women with no vision outside of what is destructive….people who can no longer be trusted and shoudd never be leaders of anything or anyone again.

    Eyes will now have to stay peeled to monitor vote buying, the recording and video devices will have to be used by the people, to make sure government ministers and other politicians are kept in check.

    Any politician, yardfowls or pimps try buying votes, video and voice record it and post it online so that the police can make their arrests, post the proof online where it cannot disappear or be tamoered with, the police will have no choice but to do their jobs ….Vote buying is a crime and ya can have them arrested…..get your devices ready, don’t let them reduce you to a bribetaker so that they themselves can be elevated to a status to take million dollar bribes…enough is enough.

    That is the best revenge.

    Piece…I am counting on you to get that poster ready to show the people on the islabd how to video and voice record politicians, yardfowls or political pimps trying to buy votes from the people they ignore after being elected to win an election, show the people how to lock up the vote buyers using their smartphone cameras and audio…you the man for that job.

    de pedantic Dribbler & Bush Tea,
    Are the two of you “fuh real”?

    David posted a video on BU and asked me to make a comment. I clicked on the video. I don’t know the names of any fancy dance moves, so the best way I can describe what I saw on that video is “THE POSTERIORS OF YOUNG GIRLS WERE TREMBLING.”
    By writing those words in “caps”, I am letting you, Bush Tea, and pieceuhderockyeahright know that you are quite free to guess and speculate where my mind is right after I woke up on July 5th. I have the right to remember, describe, and refer to what I saw on that video anytime I like.

    The next 18 months in Barbados will witness hectic political activity. I believe that every Barbadian, whether B,D, or independent has the right to come on BU and express their views. Whatever their view is, it should be treated with the same level of understanding, empathy, and compassion as the others.

    Some faceless people have come on BU and have appointed themselves as members of some secret Sanhedrin to determine whose voice is worthy of hearing. Others have decided to operate like privileged ancient Roman senators and are trying to hound and bully BU participants out of town. Others believe that they have strategically planted sticky mouse traps and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) all over BU. As soon as a phrase is uttered that they believe fits their destructive agenda, they gleefully shout “gotcha”. I intend to take all of those mythical traps and IEDs and fling them into Bush Tea’s brass bowl. Big, hard-backed men playing boyish games.

    I am a Barbadian, and I will betray the norms, mores, and values of the society from which I sprang. There will be times when I will exhibit the extreme human emotions of anger and mirth. I am not a god, so I have no intention of portraying myself as one. I have faults, and very often, my shortcomings will reveal themselves to you in a naked , raw, and unencumbered fashion. In advance, I ask for your forgiveness.

    I am only human, so there will be things about me that you like, and there will be things you don’t. I promise you that I will accept your praise and castigation with equanimity.

    You can say whatever you want to and however you want to. No one is bullying anyone nor is anyone (certainly not me) playing any gotcha game (Whenever a politician starts down that road I get very worried).

    Words can be twisted in many ways and its up to you the speaker to ensure that they are as crisp as possible but of course even then they can get a person in trouble. In politics is all about ensuring that your supporters are not swayed by wrong headed interpretations…but …

    Was Donald Trump’s star an antisemitic dig? Was the US AG’s tarmac meeting with Bill a very innocent happenstance?

    I said it before; “To explain yourself you have to expose yourself!”

    So one has to very carefully choose what one needs to explain and the best way to avoid embarrassing areas that are impolitic to try to explain. Over 400 posts, of which your contribution might be around 100 or so, is a mob-a-ton of exposure and increases the probability of releasing lots of unwonted explanations! Quantity is not quality and the higher the quantity the greater the probability of reduction of quality and the proliferation of gaffes.

    Those with eyes to see have seen the gaffes, including the DLP power brokers, and they now have another unforced dimension for their assessment of whether or not you should get on their ticket.

    Did David show you the video with the little children in the background? That has to be some sort of child abuse! What chance does a child have for a good life when growing up on such a diet? That is why I take these things so seriously. These children are being brought up to see women as being nothing more than asses.

    Now you said you had nothing to gain by lying to me but if your intention is to win a seat you have everything to gain. Even so I’m going to give you a free pass on this one and implore you to look into these matters because George Griffith is not wrong when he speaks (in today’s Nation) of the chaos that is to come.

    I notice that CBC is giving high profile to Bashment Soca competitions with the likes of Rameses Browne and Lady Essence featuring prominently as having given a wonderful performance. This nastiness is fast becoming mainstream. Is this what our so-called National Festival has become? Where is the culture in this?

    But this is only natural progression. Last year I complained to Cave Shepherd’s management about the music being played in the background. Every song was about a woman’s posterior.

    de pedantic Dribbler,
    I agree with you about the twisting of words.

    I wrote the following words:
    “trembling like the posteriors of those young girls that David showed on the video…”

    You and others apparently believe that those words I wrote have gotten me into trouble, or ought to have done so. I do not share that belief.

    If, because I do not share that belief, I have to stand accused of being a maguffy, so be it.

    You are an incidental casualty in this fray Walter you are a bright fellow in the classic sense but you have the classic flaw – you like me are human.

    As piece uh de Rock Yeah Right! I can come here and ogle Fleur or whomever in fact as Reid lolol I can come here and ogle whomever, you cannot, because that is the unspoken, hypocritical rule of public life, you are supposed to rise above these human failings.

    When I, and several others, have, and will, come here to test our Kryptonite on you, you become flustered and annoyed

    Yet you say to all here “I Walter am an open book” examine my credentials, financial and otherwise, I am without blemish.

    You did a fawning of the Bilingual Well Well and Consequences per her skills to advance financial products in the arrondisements of Martinique and Guadeloupe but that fawning was debunked by one who knew how the French system works and that annoyed you

    A few here are National Association of Securities Dealers accredited financial planners and, licensed to practice in several US states and can make one call to confirm or debunk any claim by another per such.

    The audience here on BU where you invited yourself for scrutiny, IS NOT NAKED DEPARTURE!!

    Most here are serious thinkers and posters be we black, white, Chinese, Syrians, who seriously want to make a change to what is not working.

    You claim to be a premiere financial manager of pension funds and other related services.

    I claim to be nothing of that sort my sole claim in both my alter ego and here on BU, is to have a love of my country, national penguin that I am, unable to fly away from the Rock.

    My skills are in, well, I …., I can’t say what I was trained in, so just let me say that I have no skills that you and many others would be proud of

    My practicuum of Hail Marys it’s therefore one to right those things that I have done with the Hope of the penitent thief on the Cross next to Jesus.

    You can’t put yourself up as being what Barbados needs and clamours for, in one breath, and then, when Watchman, Enuff, the Anunnaki, Bush Tea and others come and say to you “we have had other shysters come before you to claim “that theirs is the way and true pathway to progress” and, just because it is you, recently returned from Murica, with your enlightened self, like another Downlowe, we ingrunt Bajans must bow to you.

    Get some balls Walter.

    Furthermore here is some advice.

    Pressure brings out the true nature of men for the most adept of spies, who claim to be citizens of one clime, under pain, curse in the language of their true clime. Unless they were natural born.

    You are the man who put the foxes among the hens when you spoke of your Sandiford Gambit and for me that caused me, a practitioner of let us say, bait of a certain type, that caused me pause.

    It was not necessary Walter, it did not do credit to you, in fact, after I had sipped the cup, I was in awe, Walter, albeit the young Walter, would do this AND REPEAT IT? 20 years later? for what reason?

    You brought the rope and gallows for the hanging in Dodge City and I, the least among whom you refer to as Cyber Bullies looked at the rope and said “huh?”

    You are displaying the same belligerent arrogance of the BDLP of years past but there is a group of people, of whom I am only one, who unabashedly say “Enough is Enough”

    You shall be collateral damage to these verbal IEDs and even though you invoke the Protection of the Lord, remember too that Lucifer is said to constantly bring our sins to the Throne as well so your quoting and his seeming proximity will not nullify what He Will Decree

    “So one has to very carefully choose what one needs to explain and the best way to avoid embarrassing areas that are impolitic to try to explain. Over 400 posts, of which your contribution might be around 100 or so, is a mob-a-ton of exposure and increases the probability of releasing lots of unwonted explanations! Quantity is not quality and the higher the quantity the greater the probability of reduction of quality and the proliferation of gaffes.”

    are-we-there-yet,
    I sense that you are trying to offer me some advice. I will be honest with you and admit up front that I am unable to fully grasp the exact nature of your counsel.

    You mentioned avoiding “embarrassing areas that are impolitic to try to explain.” This brought my mind back to the topic of conflict of interest.

    My position is that a person finding himself/herself in a situation of conflict of interest should declare it and let everyone involved know. Many persons wear many hats and perform many different roles in business and government on a daily basis. In the course of our business transactions, situations develop where the objectives of positions we hold clash with each other. A conflict of interest then naturally occurs. SOME OF THESE SITUATIONS SIMPLY CANNOT BE AVOIDED.

    pieceuhderockyeahright’s position is that if I had any integrity, I would tell BU readers that I would avoid all situations involving conflict of interest.
    It is because I have integrity that I could not make such a pronouncement.

    In whatever way I can, I try to contribute to public education. Hence, my decision to answer the question. You might hold the view that I ought to have carefully chosen the best way to avoid what you consider an embarrassing area that is too impolitic to try to explain. If you do, I don’t agree.

    Many years ago I asked the young people of the church youth group I supervised to bring their music to our meeting. They brought that same sort of stuff of which we speak and told me their parents didn’t understand the lyrics. I had to alert them to the dangers in perpetuating this total disrespect for women. Not even the girls had made the connection. It wasn’t about them. And now we have deteriorated into a culture where the camera has totally bypassed a woman’s face and zoomed in on her posterior. Do they even know what the woman’s face looks like? They could probably recognize the dimples on her backside better than the dimples on her face! I always liked it when a man appropriately complimented my total presentation but felt insulted when he focused only on specific body parts. These women seem to take it as a compliment when the men roughly express their desires as they pass. What low self-esteem! “Bashment soca is the best!” said a beautiful young lady on CBC news this weekend. Mr. Lashley? How about a documentary to counteract that?

    Whether or not I get on a DLP ticket is a decision that the Executive members of the DLP must and will make.
    A political party, for its own survival, must learn to accommodate different viewpoints ranging from those on the extreme political left to those on the extreme political right.

    In case you haven’t noticed, the DLP has never lifted a finger to censure or expel me for any position I have taken on an issue.

    Walter;

    re. your 10:33 am post, which I only just saw, let me just explain that:-

    From your historical postings on BU I formed the impression that here was a man whose implicit intellect, courage, knowledge, skills and forthrightness appeared to be of a fortuitous mix that was far superior to any other on the political landscape in the DLP at this time. I thought that Barbados needed someone of your calibre to lead us up from the quagmire in which the Stuart regime has placed us. Your declaring yourself a potential candidate for a DLP seat in the HoA rang some warning bells in my consciousness but I sought to try to understand the portents of those bells by trying to understand the strategy you were using. In doing so I grudgingly accepted that seeking a DLP nomination had some strategic sense at this time even if it was counterintuitive.

    Then David provided the opportunity for you to interact with us on BU on a one-to-one basis and it went downhill.

    The tenor of your resulting posts seemed to me to suggest a psyche that was essentially intolerant and dismissive of alternative views; that would use standard political double-talk to wink at possible wrongdoing in your party of choice; that hinted of a possible narcissistic tendency, etc. etc. The posts never added to the count of the various positive attributes that I (and some others) had readily accepted from your earlier interactions with the BU family.

    The apparent disconnect is unsettling and might explain not just my reactions but also those of some other posters like PUDRYR and DPD and Bushtea who appear to have moved somewhat from their original positions of support.

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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    “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.

    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.

    David,
    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”.

    @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!

    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.
