Politics of Bombast and Bombshells Preferred

I can go further back to ’86 when Richie offered unlimited home repairs as a write off on income tax and David Thompson in 94 invited all and sundry to Queens Park where he was going to read an IMF letter written to Owen Arthur and Sandy in 91 countering Henry’s facts that thousands of public workers going home post election, by saying not a man going home, the economy performing like Garry Sobers..All a bunch ‘o liars worse than Ananias.

One of the major disappointments of the blogmaster 19 days from election day has been the level of discussion by those representing the political parties, supporters AND the general population about the issues affecting the country. The concern is given context when one considers the economy has been in a perpetual state of flux for nigh ten years and the social landscape has been deteriorating. So disappointed has the blogmaster been, there is no fire in the belly to comment on political issues in recent days.

One would have thought with the Governor of the Central Bank confirming what all sensible Barbadians already know i.e. that all economic indicators support the view that the economy is in stall fall mode, it would have unleashed a torrent of commentary from independent voices on the Hill, NGOs and wider society.  Instead we have the leading media house in Barbados overseeing the punctilious exercise of being ‘balanced’. It should not be about being balanced if the mandate of the media is to play the watchdog’ role, the channels of the news media can function to promote government transparency, accountability, and public scrutiny of decision-makers in power, by highlighting policy failures, maladministration by public officials, corruption in the judiciary, and scandals in the corporate sector.21 Since …Sep 15, 2007 1 Chapter 8 The Fourth Estate What is the role of the free press in …

Clearly the ministers lining up to call the media houses on the eve of a general election is opportunistic and should be dealt a retaliatory response by saying NO, we are not fools, pay for your message. The number of homeless people and vagrants to be seen in Bridgetown and its historic environs is a sure sign the mantra of the incumbent government  is a mythical concoction meant to deceive a gullible public if for no other reason it has been unable to implement.

The blogmaster has resigned himself to the view that the politics of bombast is preferred by Barbadians. The colourful political vernacular utilized by the politician on the platform; the theatrics, stokes the excitement for many who eagerly look forward to sitting on folding chairs in the ‘dew’ and listen to platform speakers deliver bunkum and balderdash.  Is this why Prime Minister Freundel increased tertiary level cost to Barbadians because he assessed that it was money better spent in other areas?

Unlike many the blogmaster will be meticulously read the social contracts of BOTH parties, otherwise described as manifestos, to determine if there is a new thinking which is required to lead Barbados out of the economic and social morass the country remains firmly lodged since 2009 .

In the next few days thousands will venture out in the night air with the expectation the party their support will deliver the Queen’s Park or Haggatt Hall bombshell message. Will we ever Rh learn?

There is a tide in the affairs of mean, Which taken at the flood, leads on the fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries.

    Mr Blogmaster, you are indeed a harsh critic…but balance is ALWAYS good.

    Even the PERCEPTION of balance even is truly desirable. Lacking that perception the calls of a biased or fake media are loudly made in attempts to mute the impact of that ” mandate of the media … to play the ‘watchdog’ role” of which you so boldly speak.

    We can’t have it both ways Mr Blogmaster.

    Your asessment of “.. the ministers lining up to call the media houses on the eve of a general election is opportunistic […] we are not fools, pay for your message” obscures the other business angle about which you speak!

    Surely it’s not lost on you that payment comes in different forms. A heightened political season can demand either higher rates for ads (regular ones) at this time or more generally drive higher audience participation which translate to significantly higher annual advertising audit metrics. That in turn allows the media house to increase overall ad rates for the next Starcom budgeting year. In the absence of more paid political ads rather than the ministers’ speak money is still being made now or later!

    All that to say that indeed we may in fact be “the fools” … as the nuances in this “game” are many.

    Case in point: Despite all the political harangue in US market, the ad revenues during political campaigns go through the roof … despite the fake media tag, media houses like NYT and MSNBC hosts in particular have enjoyed tremendous revenue growth from subscriptions and greatly improved viewership respectively , all from balanced news and opinion (thus biased) reporting on the political going ons. And all of them do a significant amount of free minister/political hacks interviews in their space.

    Ellis and his counterparts at the Nation basically do a miniature replication of that …because like the others they have a business to run to make money. Politics is one of their best products to ‘sell’….

    Thus even as they beat up on the politicians and their shenanigans they shamelessly use them to generate interest to sell advertising.

    Watchdog, you say…well yes, but the dog must be fed in order to be a diligent watcher…What wonders to behold!😐🙃

    This proposal has been discussed on BU before but with little or no traction.

    There is absolutely NO need for Bajans to be using scarce forex to import vehicles in excess of 1600 c.c’s for private or domestic use on their country’s makeover cart roads.

    Our Canadian colleague, “Hants” has been distinctly one of the contributors instrumental in pushing it to the fore but with little notice from the powers-that-be.

    It has been argued before that the government, despite all the Alternative Energy PR, has little interest in seeing its taxation cash cow (fossil fuels like gasoline and diesel) go up in smoke.

    How difficult would it be to convert pump islands at the Central Purchasing depot to charging stations to facilitate the new breed of electric Mercedes Benz, BMWs and top of the line SUVs allocated to the parasites so precisely identified by “Tron”, my friend of similar thought?

    Too besides, (to take grammatical liberties like Jeff C.) what would BL&P do with its Spring Garden dinosaur? What would happen if the BWA, QEH and other large government –managed institutions go off grid during the day?

    How can the Government of Barbados- paradoxically possessed with all the attributes of a small island developing state (SIDS) to make it extremely vulnerable to the vagaries and exigencies of climate change arising from the excessive use of fossil fuels- promote a programme of offshore drilling for fossil-based fuels as a plank for economic sustainability while pushing an agenda of Alternative Energy to help fight the battle against the same climate change?

    Are solar powered cars commercially available? On electric vehicles, it is not just about tax concessions on importation but also the infrastructure to support the vehicles, for example who would be responsible for providing EVCPs? In any event, a focus on electric vehicles must form part of a broad transport strategy that also looks at public transportation, streets, cycling and walking.

    From all that has been discussed in Barbados going all the way back to the seminal work done by Prof Heatley on solar/alternative energy sources and even the work by other local UWI experts on reefs, oceanography and alternative systems from that end one would expect your assertion to have been looooong ago integrated to our strategic outlook as a key tourism component.

    Another example of Arthur’s failure to manage the economy competently. I dealt with this issue in one of my Notes….A fiscal policy initiative would have been fairly basic: every child would be entitled to an educational savings fund from free: earned income would be invested, allowed to grow tax free, and withdrawals at age 18 would also be tax free.
    That sis the role of government.
    The other part would be the responsibility of the financial institutions, banks and insurance companies in the main, who would offer the products, the design and management of which would be the responsibility of the companies, under close supervision from as the regulator and an investment protection fund.
    Such an initiative would have served two key purposes: the financialisation of the small and medium business sector; and, more importantly, would have gone somewhere towards resolving the controversial issue of the funding of higher education.

    LOL @ DJ Sargeant no small coincidence that the band’s name is Queen….because the Queen of the BLP will be PM of this country!!!!!!!…..The BLP’s campaign officially lifted off. Is it no small irony that the DLP campaign “start” will be at a dilapidated structure which is just as dilapidated as DEM when it comes to running a government and economy!!!!!!!

    Ah wonder how the old house negro and spokesperson for the minority crooks on the island Carson C. Cadogan feels today, after his violent defense of Kutappa-Harris, just because he gave both BLP and DLP 100,000 dollars each for their election campaign in 2008….

    I thought Carson Shitmuncher would be the first to comment on that excellent article seeing he was so protective and cussed me out ……only to live to see him use his online newspaper to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the judiciary and those complicit in its incompetence, corruption and destruction over the years… for which I have to admit I admire his guts in doing so, whatever his reasons may be….it is priceless and show up the house negros in the system exactly for what they are…absolutely useless…lol

    Everyone noted that disloyal Carson never said a word, a comment about the article what a fraud.

  • Distasteful politics, a global televise event has ushered in more “downgrades” of our people and country. To see monies spent on such lavish staging to bash political opponents is merely mockery of the governance construct.

    This launch could have been spent on at least the party performance in benefiting the average man , but to state that issues of policies going forward will be address in platform campaigning going forward is to deny a greater audience of their plans.

    Type “characters” was displayed as “role models” by former leaders and aspirants.. not impressed.

    How strange the commanding of silence by FJS on the audience … you can hear a pin drop.. magic spell?

    DISAPPOINTING INDEED.
