Rock Hard Cement, Hyatt Hotel, Villages at Coverley AND Mark Maloney

At the BCCI luncheon in November 2017 Mia Mottley- the featured speaker- shocked many with the revelation that one company (individual) in Barbados was able to secure ONE BILLION dollars in government contracts. The company (individual) is Preconco (Mark Maloney) of course.

Those who traverse the ABC highway airport stretch cannot help but notice the many houses at different stages of construction. A reminder this is a failed Mark Maloney project.

Those who have reason to travel by the proposed Hyatt Hotel location on Lower Broad Street all that is visible are two Robinson Crusoe like thatched huts. Clearly the contentious Hyatt hotel will not be completed during the tenure of the incumbent government. Another Mark Maloney project the government has been unable to mobilize.

Another contentious Mark Maloney initiative is the area located on the Barbados Port Authority compound where Mark Maloney stores his Rock Hard cement. As far as the BU household is aware a stop order was issued by the Barbados Courts for Mark Maloney to cease and desist from constructing the shelter where rock hard cement is being stored. To the surprise of many BU observed recently that Mark Maloney has continued construction of the storage area. Did the court give Maloney permission (in secret?)

Should Barbadians be fine with one man securing so many projects?

  • These are the types of issues Solutions Barbados should be focusing on.

    Imagine, Grenville Phillips 2 writing about the BLP taping posters on BL&P poles, but chose to ignore that, under the current DLP administration, Mark Maloney deliberately ignored a Town & Country Planing and court orders not to construct a cement storage bond on the port’s compound, and what about the gas station built at Coverley……and no words of condemnation from the minister responsible for T&CP or Solutions Barbados.

    Although the Hyatt matter was before the court, Maloney went ahead to have a ground breaking ceremony at the proposed Hyatt site on Bay Street…even constructing two huts.

    It makes me wonder what is Phillips 2 real agenda of being very over critical of the BLP, while continue giving the DLP and its operatives a free pass.

    Then Phillips 2 & Solutions Barbados must be a “bunch of hypocrites” too.

    Same with with Richie Haynes. He was the ‘heir apparent” and was competent enough to lock horns with Tom adams. However once he broke with the DLP, he became “power hungry” and both the BLP and DLP launched a well executed campaign against him and his “wealth”.

    You are perfectly right. They enter clean and come out dirty. Therefore, where solutions party is concerned, they are not seasoned and marinated in the skulduggery of the type of pretensive politics presented by the Bees and Dees to be label seasoned campaigners or rogues of the ruthless and rotten bad apples. They political entry is in the youthful stages and the wherewithal that is needed to be effective and proven is still in the trial phases. However, for me, that is enough. I prefer to test an untried new set of politicians rather than going with the tested and tried to be given another dose of what they have been dishing for countless years. I certainly cannot go wrong with a solutions party at this stage because there is nothing of the two old ones that would entice me to vote for them.

    I asked Mottley to come clean and present a campaign base on facts; the admittance of the wrongs her administration has done in the past; and address the issues of the auditor general reports, since those reports continue to highlight the shite of both political parties. Yet, she chooses to ignore those and go on the rampage about Mark Maloney receiving a billion in government contracts. Has she forgotten her own lack of transparency during the time the BLP run the country? Jesus H Christ, the people of Barbados already know the shite the DLP has done. There isn’t a local blog that is not throwing licks in the DLP and their idiot leader Stuart.

    Mottley wants to show that she is different, that her party will be honest. How the heck you want to show you honest when you rid yourself of Maria Agard and keep that pompersetting, two face shite who like to wear a bunch of stupid hats that arrogant is pee hole. Why doesn’t she tell the pain in the ass to change his ” I is more than you look” because I got a lot of money and can afford to show off because that is all his image portrays. Mottley does not want honest politicians she wants loyal politicians. So all I am getting from her is the same deceitful and pretensive mix that will look like they doing something but all it will achieve is putting a lot of money in their pockets. Different party but the same shite.

    Barbadians already know that the cunt for Prime Minister days are numbered. But, I guess it is perfect campaign strategy to highlight the idiocy of a self absorb Prime Minister and his renegade ministers. I guess it sweetens the loyal idiots that follow her party. She would do well to confess to the country that though her party did a lot of shite too, her intension is to clean it up and give the people what they want. MORE TRANSPARENCY, MORE ACCOUNTABILITY, and launch investigations.

    You let me down man, you let me down

    You cant understand that de dribbler has a big psychological problem?
    He is a wannanbe

    Because he did poorly at the 11 plus exam, this left a scar on his brain and psyche so that he thinks he has to prove to himself………and hopefully the blog, that he is an intellectual.

    So instead of saying “twinkle twinkle little star” he has to say “scintillate, scintillate O diminutive asteroid!

    Instead of saying “Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water” he must say “”Jack and Jill ascended the premontary to engage in aquatic acquisition”

    In so doing he talks verbose INCOMPREHENSIBLE shite!

    He is so stupid, he once sought to contradict my medical knowledge. idiot!

  • How many more weeks before an election date is called in Barbados? How much longer after the Government elected begin to serve Barbados? How many years will they act in the best interest of the people in creativity, hard work and decency.
    In 2008 the people of Barbados voted a new party into power with expectations of new leadership, having abandoned an out of touch leader.

    Ten years on let us review one of those promises made to us as a people.

    Promise #1

    Housing Every Last Person – The Government signed a contract with a company associated with the “golden boy” which effectively provided the financier to build houses upon lands of the Crown. The subdivision at Coverley designed to include over 1000 homes was spaced as close together as the name villages immediately support. Houses built of wall panels were erected and offered for in excess of 275,000.00 Barbados dollars, between 800 and 1000 square feet. Local reports of the development and the design of the homes was unforgiving and less than expected, with several complaints. The Government also signed on with the golden boy to buy back any houses constructed and unsold, ultimately to predict failure of the initiative when considered from a commercial position. Today the development sits with a few dozen occupied homes on streets with scores of unoccupied and unfinished properties.

    The development included and the contractor/developer/golden boy constructed a gas station in the housing village and constructed an island at the highway entrance that would expose drivers to extreme danger and certain misfortune.

    It is unclear what success the developer/contractor/golden boy has made for himself or his shareholders from a commercial standpoint, however it is reasonably clear the promise to the people, has not been fulfilled as far as this initiative is concerned.
