Donald Trump Declared Persona Non Grata

President Donald Trump

DECLARATION OF THE PEOPLE OF THE CARIBBEAN


(A Declaration that was authored by the Pan-Africanist and Socialist popular forces of

  the Caribbean nation of Barbados at Bridgetown, Barbados on Saturday 13th January 2018, and

  submitted to the people and civil society organizations of the Caribbean for their endorsement and adoption)

 

U S PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN DECLARED

  “PERSONA NON GRATA”  IN THE CARIBBEAN


We, the under-signed representatives of the sovereign people of the Caribbean, hereby declare that President Donald Trump of the United States of America is “Persona Non Grata” in our Caribbean region!

We further declare that as a “Persona Non Grata” President Donald Trump is NOT welcome in any territory of the Caribbean, and we hereby confirm that we – the Caribbean people – will petition our Governments, vehemently protest against any Trump visit, and engage in popular demonstrations designed to prevent President Donald Trump’s entry into any portion of the sovereign territory of our Caribbean region.

As sons and daughters of the Caribbean, we hereby affirm that the continent of Africa is the revered Motherland of a sizable majority of our people and that the Republic of Haiti — the seminal architect of the destruction of the system of chattel slavery that held our ancestors in bondage — is the foundational cornerstone of our Caribbean Civilization, and we therefore consider that any insult or attack that is directed at the African continent or at the Republic of Haiti is intrinsically an insult and attack that is directed at us as well.

We further affirm that we Caribbean people — in light of our history of experiencing, resisting, and surviving the most horrendous forms of enslavement and colonialism — consciously regard ourselves as champions and defenders of the dignity and fundamental human rights of all Black or African people, and that we are guided by an over-arching and non-negotiable principle of zero tolerance of any manifestation of anti-Black or anti-African racism or discrimination.

It is against this background that we, the people of the Caribbean, have determined that by describing the nations of Africa, the Republic of Haiti and the Central American nation of El Salvador as “shithole” countries, U S President Donald Trump has committed a despicable and unpardonable act of anti-Black, anti-African, anti-Brown racism that has served to further energize and fortify the vile White supremacy system that the said President Trump has self-consciously sought to champion and lead.

We — the sovereign people of the Caribbean– hereby declare to the entire world that we vehemently and unreservedly denounce President Donald Trump and the evil and inhuman White supremacy value system that he represents!

  • A couple of points here, yes, the minimum wage has increased in some States effective Jan 1 but these increases were due to State legislatures passing bills to mandate those increases long before 45 came descended from his golden tower (almost said showers but that’s for the Ruskies). As to Walmart bonuses this was the classic “sleight of hand now you see it now you don’t”. Simultaneous with the increase Walmart closed 63 Sam’s Warehouse stores and the employees didn’t even have any prior warning they turned up for work and found the stores closed. It also announced bonuses of up to $1000.00 but to qualify for that $1000.00 you had to be employed at the Company for 20 years which pro- rates to $50.00 per year. Walmart had previously announced that they couldn’t afford to give employees increases despite billion- dollar profits and some employees were reduced to obtaining food stamps to supplement their income.

    The continuing economic upturn in the first year of 45 is due to Obama’s policies, let’s see how the economy performs going ahead but the smart money is getting out of the market as the Dow can’t sustain its ascent over the long term and is due for a “correction”.

    BTW “Lawson” could luxuriate in his Union negotiated earnings and his inflation adjusted pension while the Republicans whom he supports have “right to work”’ laws which deny the right of workers to unionise and earn living wages.

    @ lawson

    Your above comment demonstrates that, irrespective of an individual’s country of abode…..it seems as though their “political ideologies” are somewhat similar.

    You are essentially suggesting Americans (and more so those of African descent) should vote for the Republicans because they “freed the slaves in America.”

    And this reminds me that many Barbadians are of the opinion since Errol Barrow and the DLP were responsible for taking Barbados to independence and introducing school meals, “universal free education,” NHC and the NIS………….

    ……………Barbadians should forever show their gratitude to Barrow by voting for the DLP. (And this is perhaps why the DLP never neglects an opportunity to mention Barrow in that regard).

    I don’t care about “the leadership of the blp and her clown of characters.”

    But, you must admit the leadership of the DLP is not without his clown if characters as well. Let me start with three (3).

    The number one clown is none other than the “Court Jester,” Jeptar “Physical Deficit” Ince. Microsoft Word recognizes the name “Jeptar” as an incorrect spelling of a word. Ironically (and coincidentally), the first suggestion Word’s “spell check” gives is “JESTER,” (i.e. a clown).

    The second clown is Michael Carrington, who was hoping to with-hold the property of his former client long enough for him to die and then dupe the ailing, wheel chair bound senior citizen of his property.

    The third clown is Chris Sinckler…….here is a man doing the same shiite and expecting a different result. 23 credit rating downgrades, economic policies that continually fail to achieve the desired objectives and the man has a problem with decimals………..and abysmal failure as minister of finance.

    The biggest clown is Freundel Stuart……who continues to allow Sinckler to hold that portfolio, when it has been proven to date the bombastic idiot is an abysmal failure as minister of finance.

    This will not go away….NASA is a nasty racist organization, always has been, always will be…and to think if it were not for the genius of Black women, those racists never would have made it into space to begin with…

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/nasa-pulls-black-crew-member-iss-mission-article-1.3773764

    “NASA is facing allegations of racism in the wake of its decision to bump Astronaut Jeanette Epps, who was slated to become the first black crew member on the International Space Station, from its upcoming expedition.

    Rumors surrounding her prompt removal have swirled since NASA on Thursday announced Epps would be replaced on the flight by Serena Auñón-Chancellor, a member of Epps’ astronaut class slated to launch later this year, according a news release.

    Henry Epps, in a now-deleted Facebook post, alleged racism was at the root of his sister getting pulled off Expedition 56-57.

    “My sister Dr. Jeanette Epps has been fighting against oppressive racism and misogynist in NASA and now they are holding her back and allowing a Caucasian Astronaut to take her place!” he wrote on Facebook Friday, linking to a MoveOn.org petition that demands NASA reinstate Epps.

    Many of its signatories also question whether the move was racially motivated and demanded an explanation for the crew change.

    “We’re not taking your racism anymore,” wrote Debra Woods Jenkins. “Reinstate Dr. Jeanette Epps as the Astronaut for this June’s mission immediately.”

    However, a statement in your contribution is justifiably applicable to Barbados’ situation re: “like the Barbadian voter who put that assine (asinine) jack.ass in Ilaro Court….”

    It’s also ironic you refer to Donald Trump. Similarly to how the Democrats in the USA were convinced Hilary Clinton would have won the 2016 elections and wrote off Trump, calling him all types of names and that he was unfit for the presidency……

    ……..the DLP and their yard-fowls have already written off the leaders of the BLP, UPP, BIM and Solutions Barbados, because they are convinced Freundel Stuart will be victorious at the upcoming polls.

    Perhaps after the results of the elections, similarly to how the USA Democrats have not accepted defeat by Trump and one year after they are still licking their wounds……..

    @ lawson

    With the exception of ac’s contributions…….I have never seen so much shiite posted to BU…… and especially from a man who says he intelligent.

    Based on his comments and actions, it is clear Donald Trump is a racist.

    (1). “When a black woman asked to rent an apartment in a Brooklyn complex managed by Donald Trump’s real estate company, she said she was told that nothing was available. A short time later, a white woman who made the same request was invited to choose between two available apartments.”

    “The two would-be renters on that July 1972 day were actually undercover “testers” for a ¬government-sanctioned investigation to determine whether Trump Management Inc. discriminated against minorities seeking housing at properties across Brooklyn and Queens.”

    According to the Federal Government, in the 1970s Trump’s real-estate company tried to avoid renting apartments to African Americans and gave preferential treatment to whites tenants.

    In October 1973, the Justice Department filed a civil rights case that accused the Trump firm, whose complexes contained 14,000 apartments, of violating the Fair Housing Act of 1968…..and alleging that African-Americans and Puerto Ricans were systematically excluded from renting apartments.

    (2). Do you recall the “Central Park Five?” These were 5 young black men who were WRONGFULLY convicted in 1989 of raping a woman that was jogging in New York City’s Central Park.

    On May 1, 1989, Trump reportedly paid $85,000 to take out advertising space in four of the city’s newspapers, including the New York Times. Under the headline “Bring Back The Death Penalty. Bring Back Our Police!” and above his signature, Trump wrote: “I want to hate these muggers and murderers. They should be forced to suffer and, when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes. They must serve as examples so that others will think long and hard before committing a crime or an act of violence.”

    In 2002, The Central Park Five were subsequently exonerated of the crime and eventually awarded a $41 million settlement from New York City in 2014. But over the decades, even as it became increasingly clear that the Central Park Five were innocent, Trump has continued to call for their deaths, and even criticized the city for its multi-million dollar settlement.

    (3). Trump accused Obama of being born in Kenya and falsely stating he was born in America…… and asked him to produce his birth certificate.

    For years Trump was one of the leading voices in the birther movement, a racist conspiracy theory that questioned the legitimacy of the nation’s first black president.

    Read Trump’s tweet: “An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that @BarackObama’s birth certificate is a fraud.” — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 6, 2012

    (4). Trump began his 2016 presidential campaign by saying Mexican immigrants are criminals and rapists.

    (5). I’m sure you recall the cases in which the plaintiffs allege Trump University duped them into paying tens of thousands of dollars on the belief they would be trained to learn Trump’s real estate strategies.

    Trump said the judge presiding over the case U.S District Judge Gonzalo Curiel may be biased against him because of his Mexican heritage.

    (6). In June 2017, Trump allegedly stated 15,000 recent immigrants from Haiti “all have AIDS” and the 40,000 Nigerians, once seeing the United States, would never “go back to their huts” in Africa.

    Trump’s “antecedents” proves he isn’t any DIFFERENT from “the ones that rode around in bedsheets scaring the hell out of everyone.”

    So…despite’s Trump’s racist rhetoric…. and because you still have “a soft spot for the party that took (you) out of shackles,” you are PREPARED to EMBRACE a man who wants you WEAR those SHACKLES AGAIN.

  • If there is one thing I admire about…..it’s your honesty.

    You have a penchant for using metaphors to accurately describe yourself and syllogisms to describe others. And your insults are often based on “reflections” of your personality and actions.

    The metaphors in your comment re: “…….like the sewer system yuh like to spill nuff poo,” is an accurate description of your contributions, while the insult re: “…….really dont know if its your lack of capacity or your oversized bloated ego,” is an accurate description of you.

    You already tried to convince BU that “for within any given month it is totally impossible for (you) to be actively involved every single day on BU.”

    Remember: “ac March 20, 2016 at 1:32 PM #: “Sir much of my time is spent administrating and managing a large company and at intervals would comment within a working environment that can be a cause for me to be distracted…” But we know that is a blatant untruth……. you were on record as having the most contributions to BU.

    How do you use syllogisms to describe other contributors? “Your lack of capacity” causes you to conclude: “The BLP criticizes the DLP…….people criticize the DLP………therefore, all critics of the DLP are members of the BLP.”

    You are also an “EQUIVOCATOR,” which is characterized by writing ambiguously, (e.g. “oversized bloated ego),” not telling the “whole truth” and using unclear expressions (equivocal language), usually to avoid commitment or in order to deceive and mislead contributors.

    “Having illegal immigrants out of the picture it paves a way forward for the low end labourer and opens another door forcing employers to pay a wage that is comparable and decent or close to the america growing economy.”

    Why don’t to shut your sluice gate sometimes to stop the leaking sewage from your mouth?

    So how come such a turnaround of economic prosperity for the low-paid Bajan workers did not occur when your dirty lying party rounded up the Guyanese, Gestapo style, and sent them packing back to Guyana?

    The modern American economy is built on immigrant labour whether with black slave labour or poor-great West Indians like you to clean the white people shit, look after their brats and cook and serve their meals.

    @Miller, it extends well beyond that as iI am sure you know.

    That mamouth US economic engine must be greased with cheap labour. Those who come over from South America legally on seasonal work permits or those of us from the Caribbean who immigrate is one quite small component in the total mix.

    The explosively growing trade deficit between US and China is significantly more indicative of a US dependence on cheap labour for their heavy consumption.

    Higher base wages in US will not be driven directly by better control of the supposedly illegal work force but rather by societal ‘pressure’ of the liberal minded and the ‘so what’ attitude of the corporate chietans who can still book awesome salaries and enhance shareholder values.

    Tax breaks will blow the deficit but that is not a big deal for the US as the rest of the world MUST continue to finance its debt (see China above as an example)…thus this Republican tax policy will be to their political benefit.

    Justin Trudeau announced major Trade agreement without United States

    Published 6 hours ago on January 24, 2018 By Viswajith

    Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau announced on Tuesday that Canada — along with the 10 other remaining countries in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) — would work toward creating a revised trade agreement.

    The Canadian PM said in a statement that the countries involved — not including the U.S. — finished talks in Tokyo on a “new Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).”

    In the statement, Trudeau said that “strengthening Canada’s economic relationship with countries in the large and economically fast-growing Asia-Pacific region to support prosperity and create jobs for our middle class is a priority for Canada.”

    He said Canada had always said it would agree to a deal that is in Canada’s best interests.

    “To that end, Canada has been working very hard on the new CPTPP, from spearheading the first meetings of officials in May 2017 to proposing several suspensions and changes to secure better terms for Canadians throughout this burgeoning region,” he said in the statement.”

    “Eleven Nations Just Told Trump To Go Screw Himself In Switzerland After He Has Temper Tantrum

    He’s an embarrassment on the world stage.

    By Sharon Cox 02059

    Adding to the increasing evidence that President Trump has no business going to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, 11 countries have just gone ahead and signed a trade agreement that excludes the United States. Were it not for President Trump, the United States would also be a signatory on a new version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    According to Bloomberg News:

    The 11 members of a Pacific trade pact abandoned by U.S. President Donald Trump have reached a deal on a revised agreement, with the nations expecting to sign a final deal by early March.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday negotiations had concluded on what is now known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership. The deal was reached after two days of talks in Tokyo, and came just hours after Trump imposed tariffs on imported solar panels and washing machines — his first major move to level what he says is a global playing field tilted against U.S. companies.

    The 11 countries in the trade pact are, in alphabetical order, Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. Speaking today from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, according to Bloomberg News, “The agreement reached in Tokyo today is the right deal. Our government stood up for Canadian interests and this agreement meets our objectives of creating and sustaining growth, prosperity and well-paying middle-class jobs today and for generations to come.” Trudeau understands that there is both mutual and individual country gain from such trade pacts, as does most of the rest of the world.”

    Yes David Mr Blogmaster, cheap labour is crucial. But what makes Donald Trump so freaking brilliant (and frightening) is that he has completely adapted the american corporate mantra of profitability/shareholder growth as a populist narrative and hoodwinked masses.

    He speaks out against supposedly one sided trade pacts and loss of US manufacturing and industrial jobs. Yet he (and his family of entrepreneurs) only had their ties and shirts and other consumer ptoducts made outside the US.

    He also operated at the high end of the real estate market as a brand principally.

    The point not lost on those other than the Lawsons of this world is simply a realization that this pied piper is playing a beautiful tune to grow his profits and brilliantly incorporating mass appeal to achieve that result.

    He creates great angst against illegals and jerks the DACA folks around. But of course it’s all political long term calculus. Illegals can’t vote and DACAns if they EVER get that right will likely be just another segment of those 3 mil plus extra popular vote lost in blue states anyhow…

    Men Only: Inside the charity fundraiser where hostesses are put on show
    FT investigation finds groping and sexual harassment at secretive black-tie dinner
    © Tolga Akmen/FT

    JANUARY 23, 2018 380
    At 10pm last Thursday night, Jonny Gould took to the stage in the ballroom at London’s Dorchester Hotel. “Welcome to the most un-PC event of the year,” he roared.

    Mr Gould — who presented Channel 5’s Major League Baseball show — was there to host a charity auction, the centrepiece of a secretive annual event, the Presidents Club Charity Dinner.

    The gathering’s official purpose is to raise money for worthy causes such as Great Ormond Street Hospital, the world-renowned children’s hospital in London’s Bloomsbury district.

    Auction items included lunch with Boris Johnson, the British foreign secretary, and afternoon tea with Bank of England governor Mark Carney.

    But this is a charity fundraiser like no other.

    Auction lots included a lunch with foreign secretary Boris Johnson and former England cricketer Ian Botham
    It is for men only. A black tie evening, Thursday’s event was attended by 360 figures from British business, politics and finance and the entertainment included 130 specially hired hostesses.

    All of the women were told to wear skimpy black outfits with matching underwear and high heels. At an after-party many hostesses — some of them students earning extra cash — were groped, sexually harassed and propositioned.

    The event has been a mainstay of London’s social calendar for 33 years, yet the activities have remained largely unreported — unusual, perhaps, for a fundraiser of its scale.

    The questions raised about the event have been thrown into sharp relief by the current business climate, when bastions of sexual harassment and the institutionalised objectification of women are being torn down.

    The Financial Times last week sent two people undercover to work as hostesses on the night. Reporters also gained access to the dining hall and surrounding bars.

    Over the course of six hours, many of the hostesses were subjected to groping, lewd comments and repeated requests to join diners in bedrooms elsewhere in the Dorchester.

    Hostesses reported men repeatedly putting hands up their skirts; one said an attendee had exposed his penis to her during the evening.

    WPP, the FTSE 100 advertising conglomerate, sponsored a table at the event as it has in previous years. Martin Sorrell, chief executive, was not present this year — though he has attended in the past.

    Andrew Scott, its chief operating officer for Europe, hosted the table in his absence. Other table sponsors included CMC Markets, the UK-listed spread betting company, and Frogmore, the London-based real estate investment business.

    A seating plan for last week’s event seen by the FT listed those due to attend as including well-known British business figures such as Philip Green of Arcadia Group, Dragons’ Den star Peter Jones, and Ocado boss Tim Steiner.

    Financiers on the seating plan included Henry Gabay, founder of hedge fund Duet Group, and Makram Azar, the head of Barclays’ investment bank’s Middle East business. From the world of politics were Nadhim Zahawi, newly appointed undersecretary of state for children and families, and Jonathan Mendelsohn, a Labour peer and party fundraiser. It is not clear whether those listed all turned up on the night.

    The comedian David Walliams was the host for the evening. Previous attendees have included Michael Sherwood, a former vice-chairman of Goldman Sachs, and Poju Zabludowicz, a Finnish real estate billionaire and Conservative party donor.

    Current and past supporters provide a roll call of British wealth and business influence: patrons include high-end developer Nick Candy; former Formula 1 magnate Bernie Ecclestone; and TV presenter Vernon Kay. CMC Markets founder Peter Cruddas is also a regular attendee.

    The event has a laudable fundraising aim with prestigious prizes offered for auction. During the three decades The Presidents Club has been running, it has raised more than £20m for charity. Thursday’s event alone raised more than £2m.

    The organisation’s charitable trust has two joint chairmen: Bruce Ritchie, a Mayfair property developer who founded Residential Land, and David Meller, from the luxury good specialist Meller Group, who also sits on the board of the Department for Education and the Mayor’s Fund for London.

    But the auction offers a hint of the evening’s seedier side. Lots included a night at Soho’s Windmill strip club and a course of plastic surgery with the invitation to: “Add spice to your wife.”

    The accompanying brochure included a full-page warning that no attendees or staff should be sexually harassed. The glossy auction catalogue distributed to attendees during the evening included multiple images of Marilyn Monroe dressed in revealing, tight dresses.

    The nature of the occasion was hinted at when the hostesses were hired. The task of finding women for the dinner is entrusted to Caroline Dandridge, founder of Artista, an agency specialising in hosts and hostesses for what it claims to be some of the “UK’s most prestigious occasions”.

    It’s a Marmite job. Some girls love it, and for other girls it’s the worst job of their life and they will never do it again

    Caroline Dandridge, founder of Artista agency
    At their initial interviews, women were warned by Ms Dandridge that the men in attendance might be “annoying” or try to get the hostesses “pissed”. One hostess was advised to lie to her boyfriend about the fact it was a male-only event. “Tell him it’s a charity dinner,” she was told.

    “It’s a Marmite job. Some girls love it, and for other girls it’s the worst job of their life and they will never do it again . . . You just have to put up with the annoying men and if you can do that it’s fine,” Ms Dandridge told the hostess.

    Two days before the event, Ms Dandridge told prospective hostesses by email that their phones would be “safely locked away” for the evening and that boyfriends and girlfriends were not welcome at the venue.

    The uniform requirements also became more detailed: all hostesses should bring “BLACK sexy shoes”, black underwear, and do their hair and make-up as they would to go to a “smart sexy place”. Dresses and belts would be supplied on the day.

    For those who met the three specific selection criteria (“tall, thin and pretty”) a job paying £150, plus £25 for a taxi home, began at 4pm.

    The backgrounds of the dozen or more hostesses met by reporters were varied: many were students, hoping to launch careers as lawyers or marketing executives; others juggled part-time jobs as actresses, dancers or models and did occasional hostessing work to make ends meet.

    Upon arrival at the Dorchester, the first task given to the hostesses was to sign a five-page non-disclosure agreement about the event. Hostesses were not given a chance to read its contents, or take a copy with them after signing.

    At first, hostesses were assembled in the Dorchester’s Orchard Room, where a team of hair and make-up artists prepped women for the evening ahead. During the pre-event preparations, some of the women new to hostess work sought advice from those with more experience. The feedback was mixed.

    A number of the hostesses seemed excited about the evening ahead. It was a fun night, they said, especially as — unlike most hostessing assignments — you could drink on the job.

    One experienced hostess acknowledged that a portion of the men were likely to be “arseholes”, but said others were “hilarious”. “It really depends on the luck of the draw,” she added.

    Others were more apprehensive. One woman who had last worked at the event five years ago sighed to herself: “I can’t believe I’m here again.”

    Towards 7pm, during a staff buffet dinner, Ms Dandridge entered wearing a smart black suit and gave a briefing; she said if any of the men became “too annoying”, the hostesses should contact her.

    Hostess uniforms were distributed — short tight black dresses, black high heels and a thick black belt resembling a corset. Once dressed, the hostesses were offered a glass of white wine during the final countdown to their entrance into the ballroom.

    As the 8pm start time approached, all of the hostesses were told to form two lines in height order, tallest women first, ready to parade across the stage as music began to boom across the venue: “Power”, by British girl band Little Mix.

    Entering in twos from opposite sides on to a stage positioned at the front of the ballroom, hostesses presented themselves to the men before walking towards their allocated tables alongside dinner guests. This continued until all 130 women were spread across the room.

    With the dinner properly under way, the hostess brief was simple: keep this mix of British and foreign businessmen, the odd lord, politicians, oligarchs, property tycoons, film producers, financiers, and chief executives happy — and fetch drinks when required.

    My time undercover at a men-only event
    Play video
    A number of men stood with the hostesses while waiting for smoked salmon starters to arrive. Others remained seated and yet insisted on holding the hands of their hostesses.

    It was unclear why men, seated at their tables with hostesses standing close by, felt the need to hold the hands of the women, but numerous hostesses discussed instances of it through the night. For some, this was a prelude to pulling the women into their laps. Meanwhile champagne, whisky and vodka were served.

    On stage, entertainers came and went. It was soon after a troupe of burlesque dancers — dressed like furry-hatted Coldstream Guards, but with star-shaped stickers hiding nipples — that one 19-year-old hostess, recounted a conversation with a guest nearing his seventies: who had asked her, directly, whether she was a prostitute. She was not. “I’ve never done this before, and I’m never doing it again,” she said later. “It’s f***ing scary.”

    According to the accounts of multiple women working that night, groping and similar abuse was seen across many of the tables in the room.

    Another woman, 28, with experience of hostess work, observing the braying men around her said this was significantly different to previous black tie jobs. At other events, men occasionally would try to flirt with her, she said, but she had never felt uncomfortable or, indeed, frightened.

    She reported being repeatedly fondled on her bottom, hips, stomach and legs. One guest lunged at her to kiss her. Another invited her upstairs to his room.

    Meanwhile, Artista had an enforcement team, made up of suited women and men, who would tour the ballroom, prodding less active hostesses to interact with dinner guests.

    Outside the women’s toilets a monitoring system was in place: women who spent too long were called out and led back to the ballroom. A security guard at the door was on hand, keeping time.

    At 10pm, the main money-raising portion of the evening got under way: the charity auction, where the lots on offer ranged from a supercharged Land Rover to the right to name a character in Mr Walliams’ next children’s book.

    An image from inside the Dorchester during the Presidents Club event captured by hidden camera

    Richard Caring, who made his fortune in the retail sourcing business before scooping up a long list of London’s most fashionable restaurants, including The Ivy and Scott’s, rounded off the money-raising portion of the evening with a successful £400,000 bid to place his name on a new High Dependency Unit at the Evelina London children’s hospital for sick children.

    It was a moment of respite for the women, most of whom had been allowed to return to the Orchard Room. Some were excited to have been offered jobs by men in the room. Others had been offered large tips, which they had been obliged to decline. One woman struggled to re-apply her eyeliner. “I’m so drunk,” she said apologetically, blaming tequila shots at her table.

    The women filed back into the ballroom at 11pm for the final hour of the main event, which would be followed by an “after-party” elsewhere in the hotel.

    Most hostesses had been told they would be required to stay until 2am. One was told that this final leg of the evening offered a chance to drink what she wanted and seek out those men she found “most attractive”.

    The after-party was held in a smaller room off the main lobby at the Dorchester, packed tight with guests and women.

    According to the 28-year-old hostess, while men danced and drank with a set of women on one side of the room, a line of younger women were left seated on a banquette at the back of the room, seemingly dazed. “They looked shocked and frightened, exhausted by what had happened,” she said.

    Meanwhile, in the centre of the room, Jimmy Lahoud, 67, a Lebanese businessman and restaurateur, danced enthusiastically with three young women wearing bright red dresses.

    By midnight, one society figure who the FT has not yet been able to contact was confronting at least one hostess directly.

    “You look far too sober,” he told her. Filling her glass with champagne, he grabbed her by the waist, pulled her in against his stomach and declared: “I want you to down that glass, rip off your knickers and dance on that table.”

    In a statement the Dorchester said it had a zero-tolerance policy regarding harassment of guests or employees. “We are unaware of any allegations and should we be contacted we will work with the relevant authorities as necessary,” it said.

    The Presidents Club said: “The Presidents Club recently hosted its annual dinner, raising several million pounds for disadvantaged children. The organisers are appalled by the allegations of bad behaviour at the event asserted by the Financial Times reporters. Such behaviour is totally unacceptable. The allegations will be investigated fully and promptly and appropriate action taken.”

    Ms Dandridge of Artista stated: “This is a really important charity fundraising event that has been running for 33 years and raises huge amounts of money for disadvantaged and underprivileged children’s charities. There is a code of conduct that we follow, I am not aware of any reports of sexual harassment and with the calibre of guest, I would be astonished.”

    None of the trustees of the charity provided a comment for publication.

    Harvey Goldsmith, a former trustee, said he was “gobsmacked” by the accounts of sexual harassment taking place at the event. “I’m totally shocked to be quite frank,” he said.

    The BoE said: “The Bank of England did not approve any prize for auction on the occasion described nor would it have for that organisation under its guidelines for charitable giving.”

    Mr Walliams declined to comment. Mr Caring said he “was not aware of any of the alleged incidents”.

    Barry Townsley, a well-known stockbroker and lifetime president of The Presidents Club who helped to set up the charity, said he had not attended the dinner for a decade. He added that it was previously “very nice and civilised” and a “mild-mannered charity”. “What goes on now is not my business,” he said.

    This article has been revised to make clear that the Jonny Gould referred to is not the radio and TV presenter who has worked at (among others) Smooth Radio, talkRADIO, and Sky News. We apologise for the distress caused.”

    ‘S–thole’ remarks hang over Davos as African leaders still angry
    BY CHRISTOPHER BRENNAN
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Thursday, January 25, 2018, 7:46 AM

    President Trump has left the relative comfort of Washington, and now faces world leaders still angry over him calling their countries “s–tholes.”

    The commander-in-chief arrived in Davos, Switzerland, on Thursday, where he has pledged to preach his “America First” message to the global elite.

    But some leaders refuse to let an insult from a previous news cycle, where Trump said that he did not want immigrants from “s–thole” countries in Africa, slide.

    “The continent is deeply shocked by the message of hatred and the desire to marginalize Africa,” Moussa Faki, a Chad native who heads the African Union Commission, said Thursday.

    He said that the continent “has yet to finish digesting” the remarks, and cannot remain silent about them.

    His remarks will hang over the meeting, though it is unclear how strongly they will be addressed.

    The President is expected to meet with Faki’s colleague Paul Kagame, the President of the African Union and Rwanda, on Thursday at Davos.

    Beyond Kagame, Trump is also expected to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his first day at the tony ski resort town where celebrities and business leaders have gathered for the World Economic Forum.

    Kathleen Wynne is going to establish a Ministry of Loneliness to help the PC’s through the long winter, meanwhile I recommend two Gordon Lightfoot songs, “Songs for a Winter’s Night” and “The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”.

    @Northern
    I don’t think Leitch will play well in the 416 or 905 areas, remember “barbaric cultural values”? I hear Lisa Raitt is on the short list but it will be the female MP from Ottawa

    The male party members will throw her under a bus….lol. She says “Brown is guilty….I believe women”. Is Ghomeshi guilty….does it matter?

    @Sergeant, it is one thing to be rude from the WH. Absolutely different dynamic to be rude TO the WH.

    That type of sense of humor could get a person terminated.

    Well at minimum the Guggenheim will get loads of free marketing for next few days.. might even get some donations and more sales at their auctions….

    What does Robbie Burns have to with Barbados? 😊

    The “Golden Throne” is a piece of art and was on display at the museum, the museum just substituted one piece of art for another. This was right down Trump’s alley have you ever seen photos of the Louis XVI chairs he has in his penthouse?

  • Make America white Again

    President Trump reportedly referred to Haiti and countries in Africa as “shithole countries” and called for more immigrants from places like Norway at an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers.
    Donald Trump wants to make America white again. He wants all the defective genes from Caucasians in Norway & other European Countries. Read the studies below.

    CNN -Sperm counts of men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand are plunging, according to a new analysis published Tuesday.

    Among these men there has been a 52% decline in sperm concentration and a 59% decline in total sperm count over a nearly 40-year period ending in 2011….
    No significant declines were seen in sperm counts of men living in South America, Asia and Africa.

    Higher cancer risk for those with blue eyes

    People with blue, green or grey eyes and fair skin are at greater risk of eye cancer, according to new research. The increased risk is linked to pigmentation genes that dictate eye colour.

    How a ‘red hair’ gene raises skin cancer risk
    Red-headed people make up between 1 to 2 percent of the world’s population, but the rates are higher among people descended from Northern European stock.People who have a gene known to cause red hair also have a much higher-than-usual risk of skin cancer.
    The gene appears to raise the risk of cancer-causing mutations, even when they don’t go into the sun.

    Skin Cancer Skyrockets in Norway

    Number of Norwegians who were diagnosed with skin cancer has increased by 27 percent in the period of 2007-2011 compared with 2002-2006, according to the new figures from Kreftregisteret.

    GLOBOCAN 2012 v1.1, Cancer Incidence and Mortality Worldwide: IARC CancerBase No. 11

    The highest cancer rate for men and women together was found in Denmark with 338 people per 100,000 being diagnosed in 2012.The age-standardised rate was at least 300 per 100,000 for nine countries (Denmark, France, Australia, Belgium, Norway, US, Ireland, South Korea and the Netherlands).The countries in the top ten come from Europe, Oceania, Northern America and Asia.

    N.B No shit hole countries in Africa made the top ten on this list.
