A Heather Cole Column – Beyond the Boundary

Heather Cole

Cricket! Glorious cricket! CLR James wrote a book entitled ‘Beyond a Boundary in 1966.’ It was a book that describes cricket as the mirror image of what happened in West Indian Societies. So much so that it is the best medium for explaining anything that happens in our lives across the wide spectrum from politics to even instilling fear. The book was about politics explained through cricket.

A present we have a situation where Fruendel Stuart the Prime Minister of Barbados has decided to go beyond the boundary of the Parliamentary 5 year term and is refusing to call an election as is customary. As many other have called it Parliament has closed and Mr. Stuart and his merry men are still loitering on its steps.

Picture it, the last ball has already been bowled on the last day of a test match at Kensington Oval. The opposing team has left the field, so too have the umpires, the grounds men have taken up the wickets, the fans have left Kensington but a man is still at the wicket demanding to bat. His team members have gathered.

But truth be told there was nothing that this batsman did prior to close of play that was spectacular. There were no sixes or no fours. One did not hear Andrew Mason as he almost gave someone a heart attack say “straight through the covers! 4 runs!’ Or, ‘a mighty shot, clears the boundary, into the stands! 6 runs and the whole of Kensington erupts.’ There was none of that from him or any other member of the team.

As the crowd left Kensington one could clearly see disappointment etched on their faces. It was the kind of performance that one wants to quickly forget and bury in some box. The few that are willing to talk are upset because that batman refused to leave. There is no joyous celebration in the air and others try to understand what happened at Kensington today, trying to be consoled by believing that the batsman did not understand the game. Yet others are too upset saying they wasted their money and could have stayed home. The complacent say his stats were never good anyway. Yet others shake their head in disbelief. The batting conditions were perfect, nothing was wrong with the pitch and there was no rain to make the outfield wet; yet the entire team failed to perform. It was a dismal and embarrassing performance.

The commentators were left trying to explain the phenomenon. Truth be told, none of us understand this, it is perplexing to our psyche, outside of our narrative. All we know is the tale of the errant school boy, who when he got caught or bowled pulled up his stumps or took his ball and went home effectively ending play.

There must be a reason why Fruendel has decided to stay beyond the boundary of a close of play. Is it because of the length of time that it takes to convey land? I am referring to Clico’s lands and one must note that the judicial manger has not made public an audited list of the lands of that company. I am of the opinion that it is illegal after the close of parliament to create new laws, disperse funds from the public purse and share out government contract or conduct any business on the behalf of the government except in the case of an emergency situation. There is no transparency, no accountability and no recorded approval by Cabinet.

However, one is certain that Fruendel Stuart is starting to realize that beyond the boundary is a very strange place to be as no one can predict the sequence of events that will unfold. One wonders if beyond the boundary there is a cliff from which some of his Ministers will jump. Mara Thompson has already stated that she will not be a contestant in the next general election. One wonders if Denis Lowe will be available. It is significant to note that Fruendel Stuart is no longer in control of this situation. The best way to describe it is that he has opened Pandora’s Box. Not only has revelation are revelation occurred regarding the activates of his government; for example the giving away to Crown lands to Pharciple with the conveyance now in possession of Jada Construction, a London newspaper has written a negative but accurate assessment of the island’s situation and Germany is warning its citizens about the sewage crisis. Alas, stranger than fiction he is responsible for creating a spectacle of general elections as a person who is renowned for less than a stellular reputation has entered the ring to be a contestant for the City of Bridgetown and taken the spotlight from him. Another person has also declared his candidacy for Christ Church West Central on Facebook and one wonders if Tom, Dick and Harry will do likewise. That being said it is time for Fruendel to ‘ring de bell.’

    It is time the majority population put their feet down and burn these politicians and ministers for stealing from the people to give to their minority bribemasters and their personal friends like Leroy Leper et al..

    Stop allowing minority thieves and their business partners to believe themselves more important and special than the majority population, without whom there would be no treasury contracts or millions and pension fund millions to steal from……….that gotta stop, permanently.

  • PM Stuart is no ‘Gentleman’ Hants. A gentleman’s gentleman perhaps, but certainly no Gentleman. He is a bitter, spiteful, lonely old man who, deep down, is fully aware that he is a failure, and always has been. He covers it up with the superiority complex that will be his spectacular downfall. His only ‘friends’ are people like the illiterate thief, to whom he can feel easily superior, and a group of sycophants whose worthlessness he is aware of, but it matters not, as he can bask in the drooling and fawning which feeds his ego.

    He is delusional about his ‘place in history’ but will cling on to that even once sorely defeated.

    His appalling treatment of ordinary Barbadians, his oversight of the destruction of Barbados and the mutual contempt between him and his ministers will haunt him long after he is written off and forgotten by his countrymen and women. And so it should be for what he has done (and not done).

    “PM Stuart is a “gentleman””.

    Are you putting a new meaning to the term ‘A Gentleman’s Agreement’?

    Now who is supporting all the Privatization deals taking place behind the scenes with the obvious blessings of the same PM of a stool pigeon who- on a visit to the great cold North- told you and your fellow Can-Bajans that there will be NO Privatization under his watch?

    The PM Stuart is no’ gentle’ man in any form.

    Real gentlemen take ladies as their consorts, not yard-fowls, into court Ilaro or elsewhere in St. Philip.

    Gentlemen do not renege on their commitment to innocent naïve people like what Lord Fumble did to the working-class BCC students looking to pursue studies at the UWI of which he himself is the perfect example.

    Neither do Gentlemen tell contrived untruths to innocent school children about elections dates which have come back to bite him in his black backside like the bitch called Karma.

    If the coming elections date has not been written already on a piece of paper to be retrieved from his back pocket, then it has to be on the broken watch in the fob pocket of the Minister of Fine Ants who will soon be shitting his pants to find the forex to pay for the next shipment of oil and imported processed foods from Trinidad and Florida.

    From the GIS
    “The Ministry of Health is advising the public that the Branford Taitt Polyclinic, Black Rock, St. Michael, has temporarily ceased extended opening hours to 6:30 p.m. and will close at 4:30 p.m. daily until further notice. This is necessary to address challenges being experienced at the facility.

    According to the Ministry, there has been an escalation in unruly behaviour by some members of the public while on the compound, which has negatively impacted the ability of staff to carry out its duties, and has also affected other persons seeking care. Reported incidents have ranged from verbal abuse to acts of intimidation and threats.

    In response, the Ministry is working, in collaboration with the Division of Defence and Security as well as the Royal Barbados Police Force, to institute a number of measures to improve security for staff as well as members of the public.”

    And since I know that our Dearly Loved Prime Minister is a lover of the classics, let me quote the English writer Jane Austen “It is a truth universally acknowledged that single man in possession of a good fortune [or a real, real nice pension] must be in want of a wife”

    Our boy Bizzy took a new wife when he was about the PM’s age and according to all reports things working out nice, nice.

    For complex conditions the wait time at the Hospital for Sick Children is 4.3 hours, and here all of the patients are children sometimes newborns, although for a minor or uncomplicated condition they can see you in 2.6 hours.

    At Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center the wait time is 9.3 hours, although for a minor or uncomplicated condition Sunnybrook can see you in 2.7 hours.

    A hospital emergency room is not a like bakery, where you grab a number, the clerk yells “next” and you are outta there in a flash.

    As we can see from these data delivering care in an ER is time consuming. It ain’t like on TV where the doctors assess, treat and discharge half a dozen patients in the course of a one hour TV program. Delivering good care is time consuming in Barbados, in Canada, in the United States, and without a doubt in EVERY other country in the world.

    I have not confirmed it, but one of my peeps informed that in the nationnews paper, the Shit for Brains Prime Minister is urging Barbadians that if bribe money during the elections is sharing out, to take some. I told people on here that usually, the one who says ahh ahh first when the fart got everybody reeling from the stench is usually the first suspect who probably did it. When this pretensive deceiver stated in the last election he saw vote buying and never did anything about it was because he knew, beforehand, that money was flying around to persuade persons to vote for his party. By saying that he saw the act of vote buying with his eyes was convince the general public that he was not a participator or an encourage. Therefore, what better way to remove yourself as a suspect then by confessing that you saw it happening, and condemning it in open confession. Freundel Stuart thinks that Barbadians remain the gullible and naive fools they always have been and that it does not take much to keep them blinded and believing stories. I hope Barbadians wake up to this fraud and understand the motives of the DLP fully since they are hoodwinked tactics. Get these people out, and get investigations on the way after they are out. Will the other pretensive deceiver in the form Mia Mottley do anything to bring the DLP’s crooked pigs to fine market?

    A doctor in private practice is seeing patients who are less sick than those people who go to emergency rooms, so he or she can move patients along. The doctor in private practice has likely seen his patients many times before and knows the patients and is familiar with their medical histories.

    In an emergency room the doctor is dealing with “strangers” most of the time. The doctors are dealing with people who are severely ill: asthma attacks, heart attacks, strokes, traffic accident injuries, burns, near drownings, stabbings, miscarriages, unexpected labour, bee stings, children with dangerously high unexplained fevers, burn victims, people who have been raped, shot or stabbed (the rapes stabbings and shootings done mainly by men)

  • There are several people from Santo Domingo that were allowed to reside in Antigua during the tenure of the former UPP administration…….under questionable circumstances. I have been told of instances where these non-nationals exploited the lax registration laws by going into the grave yards, taking the names of deceased people, claiming them to be their grandparents in an effort to gain citizenship.

    Do you know many location signs in Antigua are in Spanish and the news is read in that language to accommodate the Dominicans?

    When the Gaston Browne ALP was elected to office in June 2014, his administration “corrected the wrongs.” I’m sure we all know, for example. about his stance on the tax free concessions given to Sandals by the UPP, which Butch Stewart was allowed to exploit and with-hold approximately EC$101M in taxes.

    When I take into consideration the lengths Stewart is going in attempting to ensure Browne lose tomorrow’s general elections……….. I’m not surprised about these money laundering and drug trafficking allegations.

    Many Barbadians (and Guyanese living here) are noticing the Guyanese and Jamaican cultures are slowly creaping into this island. The Guyanese and Jamaicans have taken over the entire compound where the old Fairchild Street Market was located, with illegally erected stalls and are selling food and beverages there WITHOUT the appropriate LIQUOR LICENSES or HEALTH CERTIFICATES. Each time the police order them to close because of the lack of these documents, they wait until the officers leave and reopen.

    If you read the pejorative comments Guyanese and Jamaicans make about Barbados and Barbadians in their respective newspapers, you would wonder why they come here and don’t want to leave.

    But when we highlight these activities, we are accused of being xenophobic or that Barbadians are living in the USA and Canada illegally as well.

    These are only 2 of a list of countries who had Cambridge Analytical/SCL interference in their election, unfairly winning the election, but when you are sleazy and corrupt as a government, it always comes out in the end….for the whole world to see…

    “St Kitts and Nevis

    In 2010, SCL managed the successful parliamentary campaign of St Kitts and Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) incumbent prime minister, Dr Denzil Douglas.

    St Vincent and the Grenadines

    SCL was present in St Vincent in 2004/5 when they discussed representing the New Democratic Party (NDP) prior to the 2005 elections. However, their demands were reportedly so great that the NDP leadership refused to engage them. They wanted a payment upfront, a payment on winning and control of selling Vincentian citizenships/passports if they won.

    At the same time the NDP discovered that its previous leader, Sir James Mitchell, had been appointed to their board and was engaged as the Caribbean political adviser to SCL. That was the final straw for Arnhim Eustace, the NDP leader, and the NDP refused SCL’s assistance to win the elections.

    SCL were nevertheless later alleged to have been behind the ‘Vote No’ campaign in St Vincent and the Grenadines in 2009, when current prime minister, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, accused the opposition NDP at a special press conference of using the services of SCL to run the ‘Vote No’ campaign against a constitutional reform referendum put forward by his government.

    Gonsalves further accused the NDP of courting, and being funded by groups who wished to expand the practice of citizenship by investment – which he called “selling passports”, and benefiting economic migrants and tax exiles – mentioning in particular Henley & Partners, specialists in economic citizenships in the Caribbean and elsewhere.”

    You understand legalese….
    Unlike Bushie- who thinks them all to be the scum of the Earth.

    So…
    If the six-month extension to the political term was put into the constitution to facilitate the odd case where a national emergency or some natural disaster forced us to postpone elections…

    …and if the resident Jackass utilises this grace period – simply because he is a retarded clown

    …and if some grave misfortune was then to befall this shiite place – say in May 2018…
    What the hell will we do…?

    More importantly,
    If a bushman can see the folly of this dangerous gamble by this ugly clown…

    How the hell do the resident BB legal elders (old fools) not see the serious potential exposure that this foolish action has placed the country into…? …and do something about it?

    Steupsss
    Now that we have built that satanic monument at the Garrison -with the pitchfork emerging from the earth, who could be surprised if Jenny decided to kick – and wash way the Canadians’ power company?
    …or if the wells that BWA digging to dump the South Coast shiite turns out to be connected to the Belle ….and get nuff brass bowls lick’ up?

    …or is this where the emergency powers come in?

    Where on Earth are there more genuine brass bowls?

    C.O. Williams should be doing the road for free considering the the tens of millions of taxpayers dollars they have received in contracts from the Govt. over the past eight years.”

    I like the attitude of these people doing their own road.

    Barrow´s deep state with the many lazy civil servants is no salvation for Bim, but gloom and doom.

    We pay the highest taxes and food prices in the region and get no proper benefit in return for it.

    As long as Barbados has more than 20,000 civil servants, the country will be a non-developing country on the level of South America and Africa. They simply cost too much. Cutting down the civil service is a national duty.

    ok to like it, but the negligent, careless government ministers will likely dig it up, claiming its illegal, while still not accounting for the hundreds of millions of taxpayers money they collected in 10 years in 20 different taxes or the tens of millions in taxpayer funded contracts lowlife Carson Cadogan confessed they gave to Cow the crook, within the last 8 years, just look at the horrible conditions of the roads.

    citizens should not have to turn around and take their hard earned money out of their pockets to pay the same crooked Cow to finish an incomplete road, they are paying twice.

    the civil service should be chopped in half, so too should cabinet, let them all get off their lazy asses and learn how to use their brains to survive for a change.

    the minority parasites Cow et al who have sucked the treasury and pension fund for decades have to be cut loose completely from living off the backs of black people, let them use their brains to find new ways to survive for the first time in their greedy, parasitic lives.
