Buy, Steal, or Disappear?

Submitted by George Brathwaite (Ph.D)

“A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman thinks of the next generation.” James Freeman Clarke.

The announcement of May 24th, 2018 as the date for the next general election in Barbados has come as a relief for most. The May date signals a ‘mayday’ call and it has churned out possibilities and probabilities for those likely to govern the country in the aftermath of economic failures and societal decline. High taxation and high crime rates have added immense suffering to the lives of Barbadians; this fact is given the numerous episodes over the lost (last) decade. The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) through its political leader and other surrogates are suggesting that the party will be returned to the seat of governance with a bigger majority.

Noteworthy, there remain doubts about the DLP’s full slate of candidates with Dr Dennis Lowe sidelined for health reasons while the nation’s health is in a compromised position with garbage build-up negatively impacting upon communities across the island. There is speculation that Dr. David Estwick, after having repeatedly labelled the DLP’s economic policy framework as a dismal failure but voted for such, may jump over board at the last minute. Dr Estwick’s decision is also said to be tied to the persistent overflowing of sewage on Barbados’ south coast which reached crisis proportions since 2017 and continues to the present moment. The shock effect of Estwick withdrawing at the last minute brings back memories.

Quite frankly, the DLP seems adrift in terms of its readiness to contest the elections despite Donville Inniss, another critic of the DLP’s ‘silent’ leader. Inniss insists that the DLP’s machinery attracted problems for itself because of poorly communicated expressions that would amount to a prosperous Barbados. It appears laughable that PM Stuart would say “a date has been set, and the battle has now begun in earnest” when in fact, there is a glaring absence of energy from the DLP’s candidates and political machinery. The clouds are hovering over the DLP in what has been described by some, to be an election that forever will determine future governance in Barbados.

The political climate after the announcement prompted one of the most foreboding statements in the immediate days following PM Freundel Stuart’s forced call. George Payne of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) is mulling over the incredulous approach of the ruling DLP. Payne noted that the DLP campaign team, planners, candidates, and blind-supporters will “have to buy the election,” or that “they plan to steal it or they plan to disappear.” This statement is relevant in the context of the popular discourse and it mirrors much of the uneasiness and distrust that has developed throughout the DLP’s years in office.

The electorate’s ignorance on corruption is the power holding together the DLP. Nonetheless, the DLP’s credibility has sunk to an unenviable low against the several pieces of real evidence pointing to what was once described by Mia Mottley and the BLP as a politics of stealth. The politics of stealth revealed secret deals and signings, significant concessions to business entities such as Sandals which only became known by leaks. There was the CLICO debacle, the peculiar relationship with a local business magnate, the Cahill fiasco, the sales of the Barbados Hilton and the Blue Horizon hotels which all left speculation of infelicities, malfeasance, and corrupt practices on the streets of Barbados.

In addition to the problems presenting real issues of trust for the Barbadian electorate when it comes to the DLP and its candidates, the many veiled attempts to shut up citizens complaining of the austere measures and practices of deception by the DLP have given new zeal to those believing their rights have been trampled. Ordinary citizens are mindful that a Speaker of the House refused to recuse himself in circumstances wherein the said Speaker was accused by an elderly member of the population of misappropriating the man’s funds and then failing to immediately comply with a court judgment.

Moreover, with the arbitrary attempts followed by legal challenges to deny Commonwealth citizens from registering to vote, represented another indication of a callous and mischievous DLP. The paltry performances of the DLP over the last 10 years coupled with the desperate rhetoric to serve yet another term, prods the citizenry to become suspicious of the DLP’s tactics. Prime Minister Stuart on numerous occasions has refused to show the empathy that any other leader would show when the plight of the poor has worsened, the burdens on workers and their unions have become unsustainable, and the neglect in the provision of services has been abominable.

Under the leadership of Mia Mottley who has grown in the position of Leader of the Opposition and in her attempt to pull all aboard for a better and prosperous Barbados, the BLP is nascent. The annual BLP picnic on National Heroes Day, the biggest since inception, suggests that it can only be by wickedness in high places should the DLP mount more than a handful of seats. The BLP’s vitality is for safeguarding today’s people and the generation of Barbados to come. On the weekend, Mottley asserted that: “I want to do right by the people of this country, but we can only do it if we join forces to bring the best Barbados possible.” Undoubtedly, the BLP-inspired hope is an emerging light capturing the attention of vast numbers of the electorate.

Anything short of the BLP attaining a commanding and overwhelming victory, suggests that the ballot box would have met with undue interference of some sort by those in positions to act selfishly and undermine the very institutions that Barbados has been prided – free and fair elections under the People’s Representation Act. The DLP objectively has situated itself in history as the worst-performing administration in the annals of Barbados. So, will the DLP attempt to buy or steal an election victory, or will that botched party do as most Barbadians now hope, and disappear?

  • The new paradigm will not permit stealth interference, the future will prove past, there is an already heavy burden to bare by those who have deliberately faltered their civic responsibility by gross acts of ineptitude and will be held accountable.

    One leader is not responsible for the style or traits of another, neither are their concepts the same. Where applicable, the record of character of a leader is known by their intent and achievements not at the based but by intellectual fortitude, make no mistake, many have awaken to the art of trickery.

    Back to the future, everything is recorded by all eyes, the mend is well engaged.

    • Gregory Nicholls on Election Day borrowing ” bribe money 💰 ” from a man trick the voters in St. Michael North West !

Family heads more often than not, sway the youngsters in their home to vote one way or another. This article is full of excuses if the BLP fails to win. Vote buying occurred on both political ends. There is a sub-section of the public that do not want MAM to become PM for reasons we all know but will not highlight on here. The older population who actually go out and vote leans towards the DLP. Old ladies love PM Frenduel. As far as I know the DLP wil retain SPW & SPN, but it will not be so easy for them in SPS but they have a chance because the BLP candidate was a SPN reject, a poor choice and not well liked.

    Today’s “People’s Parliament” focused on corruption. When lawyers came under scrutiny, Adriel Brathwaite was no longer available to participate in the discussion, especially after one of the program’s guest made a statement, which could have been interpreted as a reference to Michael Carrington.

    You should remind Fcuktured BLP that Michael Carrington with-held the funds of his former client……..a wheel chair bound, senior citizen John Griffiths……. and refusing to respond to the gentleman’s requests for payments.

    “With-hold” is just another fancy word for “steal. It would have been a clear case of “steal and disappear” had not Mr. Griffiths filed a civil suit to recover his funds. (I’m sorry hedid not file a criminal suit).

    You should also remind the Fcuktured yard-fowl that Michael Carrington is facing ANOTHER civil suit for with-holding the funds of Ajax Construction.

    As recent as June 15, 2017, Carrington’s colleague, Minister of Social Care Steve Blackett, acknowledged “World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2017.” According to the June 14, 2017 edition of the “Barbados Advocate,” “the Minister responsible for this vulnerable group is reporting that many of them continue to suffer from FINANCIAL ABUSE.”

    “He reminded that the May 2012 San Jose Charter on the Rights of Persons in Latin America and the Caribbean, to which Barbados is a signatory, not only EMPHASISED the OBLIGATION of Government to ERADICATE the VARIOUS forms of abuse, but it underscored several key actions which are necessary for elimination of elder abuse.”

    Recall John Griffiths’ civil suit was heard in December 2014……approximately 2 years and 7 months after “the 2012 San Jose Charter on the Rights of Persons in Latin America and the Caribbean”……..

    Under these circumstances…….. rather than REMINDING Carrington of the 2012 Character and ADMONISHING the dishonest lawyer for that committing that “abomination,”…………

    ………..Steve REMAINED SILENT………while Freundel ADVISED him to “get a lawyer.”

    And ironically, we have not heard anything from Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite relative to an attorney’s ethical and fiduciary obligations/responsibilities for handling funds collected on half of clients.

    …I have never encountered such evil minded people, they all want exposing worldwide and suing for that type of abuse of the elderly and everyone else they refuse to conclude their cases….

  • The headline on Barbados Today is ….Still No Returns…………

    The people have awoken, they know that this government is trying to pull wool over their eyes. People have been waiting on the returns which were :being stuffed into envelopes as I speak” and that was some 2/3 years ago.

    And the PM thinks he can win a third term?…..dream on Fumble………..not even all the votes you all are going to have to buy will save your sorry tails.

    Sometimes I think that the lawyers forget that the senior citizens have children, and grand children, and great grand children, and dozens of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews, all of who have a claim on grandpa’s/grandma’s estate.

    When we die, our estate does not die with us, and a lot of us are sensible enough to include our children and grandchildren in EVERYTHING that we do.

    Slimy lawyers beware.

    Simple Simon

    You can check your bank account every 5 minutes for the next 5 years…….you will never receive your 2015, 2016 and 2016 income tax returns.

    Why????………because you have already filed those returns and they are not “returnable.”

    I believe you’re looking for your income tax “REFUNDS”…….

    Simple…the lawyers in Barbados will spend another decade frustrating the beneficiaries of your exstate too, I guess you missed that memo..

    if the lawyers handling your estate dies, you go to another lawyer and that dirtbag just continues the frustration until you or they die and the new dirtbag lawyer frustrates your beneficiaries…until your whole family line dies off and the lawyers tief your estate and money, keep it or sell it off to minorities..

    … niggas will always be niggas no matter their fake titles and fake QC designations, they are still niggas to their core, who will rob you, in a never ending cycle of evil, doubt me, see for yaself…even the dirty DPPs are in on it, this new one is no different to the last corrupt deceased one….it is a scam that has been ongoing for over 30 years

    “Andre Thomas’ life has been on pause for the last ten years and five months. Those who know him best related how he is now a shell of himself. He’s no longer the fun-loving personality who enjoyed laughing, chatting and having a good time. Indeed, they said all the….”

    There is a pattern of evil that has been in progress from the lawyers of the bar association in collusion with the office of the DPPs, either now deceased or retired and the court system for decades….former CJ Simmons and others were famous for these crimes against bajans unable to fight back.

    you cannot get justice or any work done when both governments have been staffing these entities with their yardfowls….office of the CJ, DPP, GG…etc, they cannot function….that is why the court system has ground to a complete halt, too much corruption has made the court and its process toxic.

    It also has something to do with all the lawyers belonging to the same filthy repulsive cult lodge, you cannot find one good lawyer to trust on the island…not if they are a Lodge member, which most of them are and are also sell out niggas to their empty souls.

    So stop pinning your hopes on the probate system and dirty lawyers, I know of one case where Caroline Herbert, deceased lawyer was trying to steal some prime property from a deceased lady in Mount Standfast by forging her will, someone stopped the probate before she succeeded, her beneficiaries who were still alive who were about to be robbed took the case to David Thompson, now deceased….. he barely lifted a finger and what he did only created a situation to cause the matter to continue lingering indefinitely.

    since then all the immediate beneficiaries on and off island are deceased, they were elderly to begin with…of course the matter is still tied up in the supreme court just waiting for the thieves of the bar association to rob the estate….and that is but one example.

    I sincerely hope the young beneficiaries of all the deceased beneficiaries may be gangbangers from NYC or wherever and goes into Barbados and teach these extremely dirty lawyers a lesson….they will bite off more than they can chew and meet their match some day and they will all end up dead, before any sick building can kill them.

    I believe that this quote goes into servant leadership because you are there for the people and you want to help them achieve their goals and that a group with higher spirits towards their leader will be more likely to follow and be inspired to achieve great things…

    Unfortunately in Barbados Civil Servants have become the Masters of the people and their Example to Raise Nation to Higher Heights is Not what has been the Fruit of their Labour. Instead they have Fattened themselves and Sucked the Life Blood out of the Multitude!
