  • With all the hype Fcuktured BLP was giving, I thought this morning the electronic & print media would be filled with “breaking news” relative to the DLP meeting at Deighton Griffith school.

    This inept DLP administration cannot defend its 9 year/8 month tenure in office.

    But for reasons of political expediency and to distract our focus from the real issues affecting Barbadians, these idiots are on about a LEC, which everyone knows that Mottley does not have.

    If they had a neutral lawyer, the discussion of the issue would have some credibility. However, bringing Stuart’s legal (and otherwise???) partner, the dishonest Hal Gollop, (who received$ 1.5M in legal fees for services rendered in connection with the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) new headquarters in the Pine under mysterious circumstances), to speak on the matter, is “playing politics” to appease gullible yard-fowls.

    Clearly for reasons of political expediency, Fcuktured BLP is purposely and conveniently ignoring an important point.

    Mottley did not wake up one morning and admitted herself to the Utter Bar of Barbados.

    Her admission to the Utter Bar was FACILITATED in 1987 by a DLP administration and DLP Attorney General, Maurice King.

    ++++++++++++++++++

    Fcuktured BLP, don’t post a précis, of the news article.

    She and her DLP yard-fowl friends are essentially IMPLYING that the people who were involved in process of ensuring Mottley possessed the requisite qualifications to be admitted to the Utter Bar either FAILED in their duty or MISLED the Bar.

    Marie MacCormack, who was the Registrar of the Supreme Court at that time, would have been “responsible for preparing the file and noting any irregularities for then Chief Justice Sir Denys Williams.”

    According to Sir Henry: “It was the duty of the Chief Justice to ensure that the applicant meets the legal requirements for admission to the Bar,”……… “if there was any doubt he would have referred the matter to then Attorney General and Leader of the Bar, Sir Maurice King, QC.”

    “It is therefore in the public interest that the outcome of this investigation is publicly revealed so that any slur cast against the late Chief Justice Sir Denys Williams, the former Attorney General Sir Maurice King, and the former Registrar, Madame Marie MacCormack, and of course Miss Mottley and myself, may be removed,” added Sir Henry.

    And look who the DEMS brought to speak on the issue…….. the dishonest Hal Gollop who received $1.5M in legal fees (under mysterious circumstances) from the BWA and who sold out the former NCC employees, preventing them from being paid their total amount of severance payments.

    Rather than waiting every Sunday to combine two constituency branch meeting to give people the impression a crowd is following DEM and then wasting the evening talking about a LEC, the DLP should me confident enough to defend their 9 year/8 month tenure.

    Hal Gollop LEC………. if the BWA bought the land at Lot E, in the Pine under the NHC Act, why did he include in his 1.5M invoice to the BWA, fees for regularizing the title to the land?

    Richard Byer LEC……charged Caves of Barbados a fee of $766,855.24 to PROVIDE a LEGAL OPINION on a $25.7 million loan………… a service that was similarly provided by another lawyer for $19,550 associated with a loan agreement of $33.7 million.

    Michael Carrington LEC……charged BIDC $1M for services rendered in connection with the sale of a building at Newton Roundabout, in Christ Church.

    Michael Yearwood LEC……. charged the SSA $1.5M for the CAHILL project.

    Guyson Mayers LEC…… the DLP Cabinet agreed to hire him for 15 months and pay him $300,000 to oversee the National Risk Assessment and Mutual Evaluation Exercise of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Financing of Terrorism Regime of Barbados, when the Director of the Financial Intelligence Unit should be the person for that job.

    It’s only the blind DLP loyalists and yard-fowls that are buying into this shiite.

    My argument is……… similarly to how Stuart, for purposes of political expediency, used the note from Arthur, in which reference was made to Mottley…….. if the DEMS had information about her lack of the requisite qualifications, they would not hesitate to bring it to the public’s attention.

    Given all its hype, I thought yesterday’s meeting would have revealed information relative to Mottley practicing law illegally in Barbados.

    Instead, the DEMS used a silly strategy that LEC shiite would be more convincing if the rhetoric was endorsed and repeated by a lawyer.

    You have hit the LEC nail right on its legal head!

    If Ms MAM is practising law ‘illegally’ in Bim why not automatically revoke her licence which has to be renewed each year or so?

    Will she be given a renewal next year or would the AG advise the relevant authorities to follow the law as required under the Legal Profession Act?

    Why is the Bar Association allowing such ‘utter’ nonsense to pass as ‘informed public debate’?

    Doesn’t such an important professional body have a role in informing the public about the validity of such outlandish claims against the professional standing and personal integrity of one of its longstanding members who served in one of the highest legal public positions as enshrined in the country’s Constitution?

    What does management do when the Board is beholden to some misfit potentially bribe-taking minister like the Lowedown?

    Transportation might be seen as a public good but one that can be more efficiently and effectively performed by the private sector even within a regulatory framework. The generation and distribution of electricity is done within such a regulated private sector framework.

    Why not public transportation and even water; just for the sake of the nation’s economic future?

    Former Peterborough Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro and his cousin David Del Mastro have announced plans to build a solar farm in Cuba – even though their earlier plan to build one in Barbados never got off the ground.

    The Del Mastros are in business together: David is president and CEO of Deltro Group, and Dean is vice-president and chief financial officer.

    In late 2015, they announced they would be building a $40-million solar panel manufacturing plant and solar farm in Barbados. It was expected open in the spring of 2016.

    But Barbadian media reported on Wednesday that it was never built, though Del Mastro told reporters there this week that it’s still in the works – and that Deltro has plans for yet another solar farm in Cuba.

    Dean Del Mastro couldn’t be reached for comment Friday.

    He’s on bail these days, having applied to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada his conviction for overspending on his election campaign in 2008 and taking steps to cover it up.

    In February, Del Mastro told Barbadian reporters that Deltro had received the municipal approvals needed to allow construction to begin construction on the solar farm in Barbados.

    But he said the project was delayed because $4 million in tariffs had been placed on the manufacturing line that he’d had shipped to the island.

    Meanwhile, a press release issued this week by Deltro Group states that the firm has been awarded a new contract to build, own and operate a similar solar farm in northwestern Cuba.
