Barbados Integrity Movement Criticizes the Barbados Labour Party for ‘LOUD’ Election Campaigning During the Christian Season of Lent

The following Voice Note was received from Neil Holder the leader of the Barbados Integrity Movement. His audio feedback about observing the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) engaged in a ‘loud’ electioneering tactic during the season of Lent in a country regarded by the many as being Christian minded (BU’s interpretation) is likely to be controversial.

  • This so-called integrity movement is no different than people like William Skinner et al, people with mentalities from a bygone era, who would seek to enslave us with their anachronisms

    The Nlp is right in a season of political warfare to ignore quaint rasssoulery like easter.

  • BIM,

    Why dont you complain about the sewage flowing on the streets of the south coast and the adverse effect it is having on businesses there?

    Why dont you complain about the fact that ordinary Barbadians cannot get buses on a timely basis?

    Why dont you complain about the stupid Amendment to the Road Safety Act that has upset many Barbadians?

    Why dont you complain about the state of the QEH and that ordinary Barbadians are left to suffer in A&E waiting for care for hours and hours?

    Why dont you complain about the lack of garbage trucks to collect the garbage spewed all across our island?

    Why dont you complain about the fact that Parliament has dissolved itself and that this PM refuses to call the election?

    Why dont you complain about the fact that DLP politicians are viewed as corrupt?

    Why dont you complain about the fact that schools are in chaos and that schools are starved of funds to do even the basics even to supply toilet paper?

    Why dont you complain about the state of the roads in Barbados?

    Why dont you complain about the hundreds of young Barbadians who have had their dreams destroyed because their parents cannot afford the tuition fees to send them to UWI or that they cannot get into BCC?

    Why dont you mount your platform and tell people what you are going to do and stop wasting time? Do you think people can wait forever on Fumble?

    What dont you direct your criticism to the PM, have forgotten that he is the PM?

    Just took a peek at the 2010 census where 52,676 Bajans have declared that they are NOT Christian.

    I’ve just come from a Christian church, but I have nothing against going to a political meeting right after church. My parents did that, my grandparents did that, so why not me?

    And Mr. Holder has further got it wrong. Lent is NOT commemorated all over the world.

    Truthfully the majority of the world’s people declare that they are NOT Christian.

    So even while the majority of Bajans are Christian, in truth in the rest of the world Christianity is still a minority religion.

    if he does not know these things, or knows them but chooses to mislead, I wonder what else he does not know.

    And he would lead us?

  • What the h-e-double hockey sticks is this guy complaining about? There is never a bad time to attempt to begin the process of removing a failed government that has dragged the masses kicking and screaming below the poverty line. It’s not as though most of us believe that that MIa and her merry band will be any less mendicant but they could not be as incompetent as this bunch. At least, even if they are it is better to take the chance. The odds demand that we do. If these guys are returned we KNOW we will be on a swift descent into h-e-double hockey sticks. Jesus is said to have fasted for forty days and forty nights but some of us are on a forced Lenten fast brought on by the policies of the DLP government. Let Jesus or His earthly representatives feed the four thousand if they want peace and quiet for Lent. Man may not live by bread alone but without it he shall surely die.

    In an effort to further his illusion and ego that no man or woman can read him, he allowed Parliament to dissolve. He wants so much to hold on to power that we are now into the Lenten season. He somehow ignored his advisers and felt that he could go where no other PM has gone before.

    I am guessing the Fumbling idiot forgot that schools are used on polling day. CXC exams are fixed dates and written exams normally begin May 1/2 and finish late June. So tell me if schools are unavailable where does he plan to set up polling stations should he go past April?

    Is it really in his plan to create a crisis, hence the importation of military equipment?

    Barbados is worse off than under the austerity period of 1991-1994 under Sandi. They borrowed millions from China. After the 21 downgrades they went and borrowed 30 million dollars from FCIB to put into a development bank in Brazil…………I dont even know what became of that money.

    these newly minted ministers never remember anything about young people and do everything in their power to deprive the young of progress in their lives and work overtime to keep them stagnant.

    its the same ugly practice by government ministers after every election cycle.

    Can you even imagine this loiterer in office, though?

    This is a man whose rhetoric prior to his unfortunate rise to a position he never deserved to be in and who is now holding us to ransom……..was so anti white and anti plantocracy that I cannot understand how he could oversee a cabinet who has given even the kitchen sink to three or four white men.

    He previously hated whites judging from his rhetoric……..so why does he want to be in the Queen’s presence? What a hypocrite!

    The dems said that the poor black man was to get 40% of all government contracts…….these money donors in turn returned our tax dollars to the dlp in various forms. The poor black did not even get 4% but yet they would want these same black people’s votes.

    They who previously hated the white man has bent over backward and given away our……the taxpayers assets to these few white men and has even given one the high honour of sitting on the board of our Central Bank and one on LIAT’s board……..a man who is hardly an intellectual and dont know crap about an airline.

    Excellent contribution there, Prodigal!

    This is not only the ‘perfect’ example of hypocrisy at its ‘apex’ but also the betrayal of a people whose pride has been shattered to pieces as a black nation once considered a model for what could be achieved without violent revolution or stifling dictatorship.

    He Lord King Fumble Dumble Stuart has sold his own people down the river to the modern-day plantations of Bjerkham and Maloney for less than a mess of pottage and like niggers in a woodpile he has pulled wool over the faces of his own poor black people.

    This is the same ugly man with ‘massively’ big social-class chips on his shoulders.

    This monstrous hypocrite -with his ‘weighty’ hang-ups about which secondary school he and his poor-rakey low(e)class ministers attended- needs to drop the pretence of playing to the working-class gallery.

    Didn’t Ministers Messrs Sealy and Inniss and others in his Cabinet attend the so-called elite colleges?

    What is he saying here other than his Minister of Education has been an abject failure in not levelling the secondary education playing field as he so boastfully likes to claim by nauseatingly invoking the now failed Errol Barrow’s experiment in social engineering?

    Can that deceitful lying pompous arrogant jackass who has been pushing the Barbados Republic agenda for the longest of time tell his dear loving people why he still wants to savour (for his last time) the intoxicating pomp and pageantry in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen?

    Hasn’t the ugly fool ever heard of the saying a political cockroach has no right to attend a fowl-cock party?
    The man would be nothing but a politically expired misfit standing out like a bleeding thumb only to be the butt of jokes at the expense of poor devalued Bajans.
    As my Jamaican brethren would say:
    “Darg among doctor, cockroach among shaver.”
    To translate and explain for the non-Jamiacan:
    “A dog among doctors, a cockroach among shavers”.
