Attorney General Adriel Brathwaithe | Liar and Politician

Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart and Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite both admitted that they spotted voter irregularities during the 2013 general election. Up to now they have done nothing to address it as promised.

Recently the BU household observed in awe the incident where a Republican candidate vying for a seat in the US Congress body slammed  a journalist for asking a question about the contentious health care system. The incident was “straightoutta” Hollywood. Greg Gianforte the Republican politician at the centre of the furore went on to win the seat to add to the storyline. Gianforte was charged with a misdemeanour offense that resulted in him having to do 40 hours community service. The most surprising part of what has transpired surrounding the incident is the blind support by Trump supporters who have justified his behaviour by spouting the Donald Trump narrative that the mainstream media is about fake news therefore any anti media cause is a noble undertaking.

Members of the BU household live our humble lives ‘undergirded’ by traditional values to determine what is right and wrong. What Gianforte did when he body slammed the Guardian journalist was wrong and President Trump, Republican leadership in the Congress, Senate and the public at large should have immediately forced Gianforte to resign from the contest. Instead the incident was glossed over and the opportunity for a teachable moment was missed. Imagined all the impressionable minds that were influenced by the incident and the likelihood how it will manifest in undesirable behaviours in years to come. Who are the gatekeepers of public morality if not the people themselves.

In Barbados we have our version of the Gianforte incident being played out. At a time when the economy continues to underperform despite the best effort of the government we have a prime minister who pleads ignorance about the fact his government has purchased two luxury vehicles in recent months with a combined cost of greater than $500,000.  Where is the morality in those decisions is the growing cry.

Wrong is wrong!

However this is not the local equivalent of the Gianforte incident. Here is an extract from a 2015 BU blog:

During the Presentation of the Financial Statement and Budgetary Proposals 2015 the intelligence of Barbadians was trivialized (or was it) by the debate whether Lowe has earned a Doctorate or leader of the Opposition possesses the requisite qualification to practice law in Barbados. Former Prime Minister Owen Arthur has routinely described contributions to debate in parliament as ‘po-rakey’, now there incontrovertible  is proof.

Let us for argument sake accept that leader of the Opposition does not possess a Legal Education Certificate (LEC) and therefore does not have the right to practice law in Barbados. Let us accept that she and three other lawyers who were afforded a waiver at the time there was the transition to the LEC certification is invalid. Let us further assume that Mottley has been illegally practising law in Barbados and other Caribbean countries for the past 30 years. Let us also assume that several Registrars of the Court and Attorney Generals from both political parties were wrong not to have dealt with the matter in the intervening years. What is also WRONG Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite is you rising on the floor of parliament in June 2015 to promise Barbadians that you will investigate the matter of Mottley’s LEC and two years later not delivered. What sensible Barbadians must conclude is that there is no evidence to support the claim that Mottley has been practising law illegally in Barbados since the late 80s or you have been playing politics read the ass with the issue. BU suspects it is very much the latter.

The issue after 30 years of practicing law is not for Mottley to produce her credentials. It is for the Attorney General to deliver on his promise to share the results of his investigation of 2 years in the making. The public is also reminded that it is Adriel Brathwaite who joined Freundel Stuart immediately after the 2013 general election win to promise Barbadians that voting irregularities witnessed by them would have been addressed in some form or fashion certainly before the next general election is called.

The reputation of Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite will be forever sullied by his silence on the matter of the findings of his LEC Mottley investigation. Even if he were to deliver on his promise tomorrow by sharing the results of his two year investigation, he has earned the right to be accorded the reference –the worst of the Attorney Generals produced by Barbados post Independence.

    Oh, shut you darn dribble, you stupid idiot. Dennis Lowe is not honourable. He is a foul mouth arrogant crooked son of a bitch who came into the politics to get, not give. He may have the heat on Mottley, who is also a piece of nasty work. However, the Low Lowe has no more honour than a cockroach. So when you are going to defend these crooked ignorant bitches as it is yard duck thing that you tend to do, try hard not to ignore their crookery, because Dennis Lowe might be right on the Mottley not having a LEC, but he has proven himself to be a nasty stain in running cess pool. Honourable my ass?

    As a former educator it would have been usefull if you had watched the video and googled more on how the Finns are turning their archaic educational system,very much like ours,around in order to have given an informed critique of it.

    I support your suggestions for the primary school,some of which in Ag. I was involved with as an after school activity decades ago but it has to be part of a comprehensive exercise up to tertiary level catering to the 25-50 year vision for our country.

    I am loving it…..Lowe got a fake PhD that can be bought in any street corner in the US…come out things.

    Barbados’ territorial maritime dispute with Trinidad.

    • The Hon Mia A Mottley QC,
    Deputy Prime Minister, Attorney
    General and Minister of Home
    Affairs, Agent for Barbados
    • Mr Robert Volterra, Co-Agent,
    Counsel and Advocate, Latham &
    • Professor Sir Elihu Lauterpacht
    CBE, QC, Counsel and Advocate
    • Professor Michael Reisman,
    Counsel and Advocate
    • Mr Jan Paulsson, Counsel and
    Advocate, Freshfields Bruckhau

    This is the best reason in the world why no one should demean and degrade themselves to become yardfowls and political pimps for politicians and government ministers.

    I am loving it…..Lowe got a fake PhD that can be bought in any street corner in the US…come out things.

    I keep telling you all that Lowe’s qualification is believed to be fraudulent.

    From the time he came on the scene, OSA talked about this fake PHD on a platform in Christ Church East.

    Clyde Mascoll who was the then Opposition leader said at a public meeting at Tyrol Cot that so concerned were they about the allegation that the party asked his wife to investigate the matter.

    She reported back to the party that there seem to be truth to OSA’s allegations.

    At the meetng Mascoll said that he was surprised to see that Lowe was now presenting papers as proof of this PHD but in a totally different field………meaning to say that what Lowe was currently saying that he is qualified in is not the same discipline he previously claimed he had this doctorate.

    I seem to recall OSA saying that the PHD was from a Bible college which did not even offer a PHD programme.

    Dennis Lowe’s PhD is fake, it cannot stand up to US scrutiny.


  9. Prodigal Son June 13, 2017 at 5:51 PM #

    Did I not tell you here on BU that no one in the legal field has a good opinion of the AG.

    I was at a gathering over the Christmas season and there were many lawyers there and not a fellow had a good word to say about the AG or the CJ.

    In another setting where I was there were some visiting lawyers who were here to consult with the AG. One asked me where we get that AG from, he does not know anything about LAW.

    Mottley did not attend any of the law schools in the Caribbean administered by the Council of Legal Education, prior to being admitted to the Bar of Barbados.

    However, he strongly argued that this fact did not preclude her from practising law in the region.

    “Such attendance was NOT necessary at the time. It was NOT a pre-condition to the right to practise,” argued Sir Henry.

    ” It was NOT a pre-condition to the right to practise,”

    So Mia Mottley was practicing LEGALLY according to Sir Henry Forde. NEXT!!!!! (as the late John Gibbs would yell at we fuh tekkin too long to order. lol

    Wunna bending over backwards to accommodate evil.

    They are four “Lawyers” without LEC’s operating in Barbados.


    What is this saying?

    Why everyone else who wanted to become a Lawyer had to enter the legal profession through the front door. Why a selected bunch were allowed to enter through the back door?

    What back room deal was cut?


  13. Hants June 13, 2017 at 6:35 PM #

    Fact check.

    He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, which he obtained in 1984.

    A year later, he achieved his Masters in Education from the University of Cincinnati.

    He was awarded a Doctorate in Education from the same university in 1989.

    And yet Lowe is as dumb as a door, cant handle his job, waste management, garbage collection, nothing…that dissertation must have been in bribe collection.

    Is that 2 PhDs or one.


  17. Artax June 13, 2017 at 8:37 PM #

    It is ironic that CCC wrote “Wunna bending over backwards to accommodate evil,” in reference to a lawyer.

    I recall the same CCC, his yard-fowl accomplice Angela Cox-Skeete and the DLP exhibiting contortionist skills to similarly bend over backward to accommodate the evil Michael Carrington perpetrated against his former client John Griffiths, relative to with-holding (a fancy word for stealing) the wheel-chair bound senior citizen’s funds for a number of years, and had to be ordered by the court to repay the sum with interest.

    Michael Carrington is in possession of a LEC, but was involved in nefarious and dishonest act.

    If the yard-fowls are of the opinion Mottley is illegally practicing law in Barbados, surely they should accept that Michael Carrington is a thief.

    “Vincent, You still don’t get it, do you? This is CLEAR EVIDENCE of the failure of our educational system.”

    Am….. was this “clear evidence” tested in court under cross examination? If not, then such evidence is “hear say” and that, according to the author, is the rule of law.

    Therefore, “hear say” is being used to cast aspirations on our educational system.

    Or is this “rule of law” only applicable to Leroy Parris and Hal Gollop?


  22. angela Skeete June 14, 2017 at 8:24 AM #

    Ratted! Mottley once again on her soap box muttering her usual rants and raves while sticking her nose in Union business.
    As if enough spotlight is not on her not able to produce a Legal Education Certificate. It seems like one of her desires is to see barbados have chaos in the street.
    Dont understand the rationale behind her ridiculous rants when she knows better.


  23. Well Well & Consequences Observing Blogger June 14, 2017 at 8:44 AM #

    Carson….again, I know yardfowls lack commonsense, but this is easy, if Mia never received her law degree from UK, it means she was never a lawyer, why aren’t any of you stressing on this, have any of you seen her UK law degree….and why aren’t any of you talking about that.

    The LEC is secondary to a lawyer trained in the UK, graduated and having a LAW Degree and required to have an LEC, back then after 1983, to practice in the Caribbean…..and we all know about the D exemption for Mia to practice without LEC….a nonissue…..but the question is, dud she graduate with a law degree from the UK, have any of you seen it, why dont you ask fir it, if ya did not.

    Now to Dennis Lowe who seems to have a PhD for every season and for every reason…lol


    “He was awarded a Doctorate in Education from the same university in 1989.

    A doctorate = a PhD.

    Ah heard about Lowe having a doctorate in theology from a religious university that has no such PhD program.

    A doctorate in education = PhD

    A PhD dissertation in social climate = PHD

    An accepted dissertation in anything = PhD

    So would Dennis Lowe’s real PhD….please…..stand…..up.

    Any of you care to explain the discrepancies.

    Alvin….ah know ya gotta be pimping around the blog somewhere, this one is just for you…lol

    “People Who Constantly Point Out Grammar Mistakes Are Pretty Much Jerks, Scientists Find
    But you probably already knew that.
    Scientists have found that people who constantly get bothered by grammatical errors online have “less agreeable” personalities than those who just let them slide.

    And those friends who are super-sensitive to typos on your Facebook page? Psychological testing reveals they’re generally less open, and are also more likely to be judging you for your mistakes than everyone else. In other words, they’re exactly who you thought they were. That sounds pretty obvious, but this is actually the first time researchers have been able to show that a person’s personality traits can actually determine how they respond to typos and grammatical errors, and it could teach us a lot about how people communicate (or miscommunicate) online.”

    Well Well

    You should see the one on people who constantly blow their trumpets of self praise. It says they are idiots in their thinking and morons in life.

    Carson C Cadogan

    Dennis Low Lowe is an honourable crook. He will be honoured shortly for his contribution to making the Democratic Labour Party look petty and pissy. I hope that the pretensive opposition leader will launch an investigation into Low Lowes doings, but we know she will not do one shite. She will show her true colours just like the Dees has shown theirs. It call DEEBEE politricks, and it is wukking fuh both parties.

    MORNING david

    TAKEN FROM FACEBOOK(you can delete this if you like)

    but it is not going away

    “”Imagine… What does it feel like to sit in a court representing your clients…only to find out that the Judge has issues with his call to the bar, one opposing lawyer has issues with her call to the bar, another opposing QC was the person who moved the application on behalf of the female lawyer with issues, another QC who was representing a “co claimant” was the AG “at the material time”.

    Everything will come out.””

    This is not going away, FRAUDS AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF THE BLP.

    If we were dealing with a Medical fraud the Royal Barbados Police Force would have already intervened.

    Use your common sense for a change.

    if some one of the rank of The Hon. Dr. Dennis Lowe challenge your legal qualifications in the Parliament of all places in Barbados, would you not within an hour produce your LLB and LEC to shut him up as he did to her?

    Not come TWO YEARS LATER DISPLAYING O levels certificates.

    One would especially want to rubbish HIS CHALLENGE especially if one IS ALSO A QC.

    Is this why OWEN ARTHUR has been fighting for years for her not to become Leader of the Barbados Labour Party and possibly a PM in Barbados? He had to know this all along and the danger it poses to Jurisprudence in Barbados if this became known. We recall OWEN ARTHUR made Clyde Mascol “”CO-LEADER”” of the Barbados Labour Party.


  29. Well Well & Consequences Observing Blogger June 15, 2017 at 7:17 AM #

    Carson….so why arent you challenging if MIA has her law defree from UK…why are you stuck on an LEC….

    First prove that she did not graduate with a law degree, easy to prove if she did or not, dial up the law school in UK…they have recirds going back centuries of lawyers who earned law degrees, by that standard Mia’s law degree is young, they can find her records easily.

    All that long talk about an LEC…when a law degree is required to even be a lawyer.

    Prove she is not a lawyer and has been fraudulently practicing law…or shut up.


  30. Carson C. Cadogan June 15, 2017 at 7:21 AM #

    Well Well

    One thing at a time.


  31. Well Well & Consequences Observing Blogger June 15, 2017 at 7:24 AM #

    BTW…Dennis Lowe is too incompetent for his claimed qualifications to not be also called into question also

    And all these accusations you have against lawyers and a judge who have been practicing for decades, you only found out when, yesterday.

    If true…….both DBLP politicians and ministers have known about these frauds, all have helped cover up these frauds against the people for decades.

    So dont try to convince me that yall crooks found truth and religion, try someone else.


  32. Well Well & Consequences Observing Blogger June 15, 2017 at 7:26 AM #

    No Carson….the most important thing first, the law degree, yall do everything assbackwards and always have to be scrambling .

    I know wunnuh lions gine bite off my head fuh stickin um in wunnuh mout, but wunnuh doh tink is time fuh leggo BOAF uh dese lickrish political Parties?

    BOAF uh dem had 50 years wid de LABOUR name but dese days NEIDAH ONE doan give a rat’s a$$ bout de poor or middle class (= labour), all dem concerned about dese days is lickin dem mout in Parliament and tellin nuff nuff lies. While dem linin dem pockets, of course, lewwe doan fugget bout dat.

    De two ah dem had 50 years dancin dixie pon Bajan heads, lemmuh suggest dung hey at de bottom of de barrel is time we trow out de baby, de baffwater AN de baff, and lookah different people fuh run we national affairs.

    TWO “Labour” Parties now alternate power, and BOTH of them have TOGETHER brought us all the way into national and international bankruptcy – IMHO Fumble actually seems to be proud of it.

    Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is called a symptom of insanity – I can’t believe Bajans are that crazy, but we seem to have some politicians who are stark raving bowgally insane.

    May I respectfully suggest that at the next election we at least, as they say, “send a signal”: That is, give both current Labour Parties a minimum four-year vacation and vote for Granville Phillips (or some other non-Labour Party), take a chance to see what their performance is like.

    At the very worst, in the future we would have a minimum of three valid Parties to choose from – and not have to choose between TweedleDumber and TweedleDumbest (as we have to now).

    How much WORSE can some other Party be than these two current bunches of braying, lying, self-centered incompetent jackasses?

    Wuhloss! Lunch time!!
