The Grenville Phillips Column – A Bunch of Hypocrites

Grenville Phillips II, Leader of SB

As I engage the younger generation, who we are training to manage Barbados after we have gone to the great beyond, I am normally impressed with their general boldness and ability to articulate their concerns.

I recently saw a young fellow who appeared to have just graduated from secondary school selling newspapers.  I bought one and then gave him a $10 tip as I explained to him that I wanted to encourage him to keep doing the right thing.  He politely accepted the gift, and I was impressed by his politeness.  He should do well in business, because he was selling a high-demand product in a high-trafficked location, and he was polite – which is a valuable asset.

I also encountered persons selling mangoes.  Some had no fear about explaining that they had picked them from a neighbour’s yard.  They felt justified since they did not pick all, but left some, that were harder to reach, for their neighbour.  They also felt entitled to the mangoes since they previously chased the monkeys from stealing the fruit.

They asked me what I will do about police coming into their community and taking bribes for looking the other way.  They laughed when I informed them about the Police Complaints Authority, saying that it is a joke.  I asked them whether they had ever made a complaint, and they admitted that they had not because it is a joke.  I explained that they should first make a complaint, and then observe the response before they conclude that it is joke.

They agreed that this was a rational approach, but then countered by stating that they were tired of all of the hypocrisy in Barbados.  Why is everyone preaching “do as I say but not as I do”?  They then asked some pertinent questions.

Why are obese health officials preaching that the public should not enjoy the unhealthy foods that they seem to be enjoying in abundance?  Why are people with high salaries telling those who are barely getting by to tighten their belts?  Why are people who are always drinking preaching that others should drink responsibly?
When I asked about their choice of job, they tried to justify their choice of employer.  What is the difference between having an employer who tells you to use substandard materials and methods, and having a gang lord who tells you to sell drugs?  In both cases, the employers are doing wrong, customers get hurt, and if they get caught, you will be out of a job.  So what is the real difference?

Why do the police leave the men who pay and receives bribes, and the restaurants that dilute drinks, and contractors who do bad work, and shops that sell defective products, and supermarkets that sell expired food alone, but want to arrest the fellows who are selling drugs?  How is that right?  I agreed that it was not right, and that in a Solutions Barbados administration, they would all be treated equitably.

This brings us to the political poster issue.  The Barbados Light and Power formally requested all political parties not to place posters on their poles.  One reason given is that they can seriously injure workers.  Respect for private property is a basic human right in Barbados, and is protected by our constitution.  Politicians who want to write our nation’s laws, but unashamedly violate constitutional property rights in full public view, are extremely poor examples for our youth.

Fortunately for all of us, there is an upcoming general election and an opportunity for us to select better political models for our nation’s justifiably cynical youth.  Your responsibility in this regard is to simply note every political candidate on a utility pole, and do not vote for them.

    Dont the power company workers use cherry pickers to reach power lines, I thought climbing poles was abandoned decades ago in favor of buckets which are much safer.

    If Grenville is saying the opposition is disregarding the power company’s rights to not want posters on their poles…well yes….I dont see where posters are needed anyway, the days of impressing voters with folly are long gone, politicians should create other methods of convincing voters they will not be just as corrupt, incompetent and neglectful as the present government, instead..

    Putting up posters so clueless fools can say “I voting for he/she, I like he/she is now dark ages…everyone, who is not clueless, hates politicians, they lie too much. .

    I can say a lot about that 10 dollar tip, but wont. Hope it was not followed by any political clap trap.

  • That 10 dollar bill was no gift.

    It was an expression of what’s wrong with our society, political hubris!

    That high school graduate cited would truly be independent were he to live in a country which had a radical land reform.

    If he went to schools and was properly educated to know the likes of you are and have been impediments to the very egalitarian system you pretend to want but everything you say goes counter.

    If he knew that people like you are clueless and are not seeking power to empower but for and of itself, to better serve the elites.

    This handout may very well be a signal that you are prepared to spread some of the ‘mother’s milk of politics’ liberally, or at least create such an illusion.

    Such largesse could only come from a limited number of economic rats dwelling in the sewerage systems of the coasts.

    You need to add to your list of hypocrites those religious nutters preaching about a white Jesus bringing them materialistic happiness (in return for greenbacks) through the Prosperity Gospel in which you are an ardent believer and follower.

    Praying for blessings of material things does Not make for ‘good’ Jesus-like behaviour.

    Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

    Will you be that man, G P 2?

  • Sewage flowing in the streets along the south coast……..having negative effects on health, tourism and the environment……….

    ……………and all Grenville Phillips II could come up with is an article using a preamble of shiite to get to his main point re making the BLP TAPING (not stapling) posters on utility poles a “serious” political issue and as a reason NOT to vote for the BLP.

    ………….and William Skinner & SSS want to convince me to vote for Solutions Barbados.

    The problem I have with Grenville Phillips II is, (although he means well), he should have selected “shadow ministers” from his 29 candidates and delegate them to speak on various issues…………..

    ……………rather than assume the roles of attorney general and “shadow minister” of finance; health; tourism; education; foreign affairs (he made a mess of that in a previous article on the UN vote); sports, youth affairs & culture; social care, constituency empowerment and community development; labour, international business and the other ministries (some of which, in my opinion, are unnecessary)…….thereby presenting HIS OPINION on ALL issues in Barbados.

    Phillips II could have used the south coast mess as an opportunity to demonstrate to the electorate, the “TRUE METTLE” of his candidates as they address pertinent issues derived there from. For example, he could have assigned different candidates to speak on the repercussions of the sewage on health, tourism and the environment respectively.

    However, while addressing the BL&P/poster issue, he could have also given an opinion on the BL&P CHARGING customers $500 for a utility pole and using that same pole to facilitate the connection of electricity to other customers FREE OF COST……….. as well as allowing FLOW, DIGICEL and other companies to use that pole, FREE OF COST, to connect their services to customers.

  • Despite having the full complement of 30 candidates, Grenville Phillips II continues to be the “face and voice” of Solutions Barbados, choosing to speak on ALL issues, since the party was established over two years ago.

    It seems as though Mr. Phillips II has not IDENTIFIED nor has CONFIDENCE in anyone from among his candidates to address SPECIFIC ISSUES, such as the economy, health, education, tourism, international business or matters falling under the attorney general’s portfolio.

    It is about time he realizes that introducing candidates does not only mean demonstrating to the electorate SB has 30 candidates and thinking highlighting their years of working experience is enough to convince people to vote for them.

    Mr. Phillips II must let his candidates show they are deserving of the electorate’s support and vote, by allowing them to use Solutions Barbados’ column, social and traditional media to discuss issues affecting Barbados and articulate policy solutions.

    As the leader of a new emerging party Mr. Phillips II should concentrate his efforts on being “refreshingly innovative,” by introducing a new style of politics, rather than going down the same line as the other political parties.

    The above caught my eye and my response is “plus ca change plus c’est la meme chose”
    Circa 1960 we had to “purchase” a pole to facilitate receiving electricity in our home, immediately after that our neighbours applied for and received electric power via the same pole, we paid at the time what would be a Queen’s ransom for a working-class family but it was either that or kerosene lamps with “Home Sweet Home” chimneys or those gas lamps that one used methylated spirits to light. We never received any compensation from BLP for the other business that pole generated for the company

    That a utility company which enjoys a monopoly in providing its service to its customers would still be billing for poles in 2017 is unconscionable, it would be interesting to know what profit BLP obtained from that one pole since 1960 as well as the profit it now enjoys from “providing” poles to new customers.

    Very good response to ‘pretty petty’ nonsense.

    Would they be demanding the ruling DLP party cease and desist from putting up posters to emulate the Opposition?

    Clearly if the DLP put up posters of some of the ugliest politicians on God’s beautiful earth then the BL&P would have no problems with the monkeys tripping the wires on those poles because those monkeys would run a thousand miles away from those creatures from the black lagoon in George Street.

    How come the same Emera did not insist that the DLP remove immediately those “No Privatization under the DLP” posters which were still ‘adorning’ some of the BL&P poles long after the last set of elections?

    The local lapdogs for Emera should be more concerned about the widespread overhanging tree branches on the electricity transmission lines.

    An ugly poster might be able to attract a voting monkey but a broken-off tree branch on a transmission line can certainly kill both the seller and buyer of votes.

  • ac,

    You are a damn liar……….you well know that Peter’s polls were right.

    As a matter of fact, you dems are ungrateful because as a result of Wickham’s polls, you deceitful, lying people were able to flood the constituencies you stood to lose with tens of thousands of dollars.

    ………the PM knew who distributed money in St Michael South, he saw it first hand
    ………the AG knew and saw voting buying in his own constituency
    ………HammieLa has tens of thousands to flood St Michael West Central
    ………Steve Blackett’s bagman had tens of thousands to flood St Michael Central
    ………when Donville called George Street to say that he was in trouble, the Stinkliar told him dont worry reinforcement is on the way………

    You dems have destroyed the sanctity of our elections so much by your actions, you have destroyed the faith people had in political parties that many disgruntled politicians are forming their own parties, you have so destroyed everything Barbadians hold dear that we have them now thinking that the two parties are the same…..

    Never!

    You should be thanking Peter for his polls instead of lambasting him every day. You sound just like Straker’s Tenantry on VOB…………..
