Politics of Vitriol

Hypocrisy rears it’s ugly head again in Barbados. When a DLP leader is spoken about in the worst way none of the sanctimonious hypocrites from the BLP or otherwise have nothing to say in fact they embrace the comments. The DLP launches an attack on the BLP leader who happens to be a woman and these people want to rush back to a moral code. In all of this the question is was the current BLP leader in charge and responsible for the projects that were identified during the presentations?

James Paul (DLP Candidate for St. Michael West Central)

The day after the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) delivered a stinging rebuke of Mia Mottley’s leadership  at their kickoff political meeting, it has been interesting to monitor the feedback. Although anecdotal, the blogmaster senses there are many who were turned off by the torrent of invective hurled at Mia Mottley from the DLP platform on Sunday night.

Why should Barbadians be surprised? Politics is a blood sport some say and clearly the DLP will devise the strategy they determine is best suited to win the upcoming general election. If Mia is able to withstand the assault then it will make her worthy of the position she holds as leader of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP). The blogmaster has no issue with the DLP focussing on the capacity of Mia Mottley to lead or on her record of achievement in public life. Attacking the leader is an established tactic adopted in team sport with good result. The fact that Mottley is a woman will encourage the irrelevant emotional argument.

In a press interview with the Prime Minister after he was nominated to contest the St. Michael South seat, he expressed satisfaction at the  level of response the DLP kickoff meeting has aroused in the population. Clearly a key plank in the DLP’s strategy is to focus the campaign on Mottley.  To state the obvious, it will be up to the voters to decide on the 24th May 2018 its effectiveness.

The blogmaster noted the excuses proffered by campaign manager Bobby Morris at the DLP kickoff meeting on behalf of Denis Lowe and Kim Tudor. Denis Lowe is reported to be recovering from a knee operation AND Tudor was said to ‘under the weather’. Inquiring minds want to know if there is a possibility Tudor – the woman – didn’t have the stomach to be present on the DLP platform during an attack against the woman Mottley.

It will also be interesting to observe how the campaign develops now that the kickoff meetings of the weekend are out of the way. So far the BLP has to be given more points for engaging in a lower level of vitriol. However, for the sensible among us, we will be listening to how Mottley and the BLP plan to stabilize and restore prosperity to Barbados in the coming days, the same for the DLP. The DLP will also have the task of defending its record in office for the 2008-2018 period. An incumbent running for a third term is always challenging. Doing so having presided over an extended period of austerity moreso.

In summary, we will have to determine if the government has managed the affairs of state satisfactorily given the hand it was dealt. It will have to be careful in its explanation why it has not implemented Integrity and FOI laws after ten years in government. The blogmaster notes the BLP has promised to make this a priority on the first working day of parliament should they be elected to government.

What is the state of its waste management program? Although Lowe can boast of a spanking new SSA headquarters located at Vaucluse, the island continues to manage waste collection and disposal in the same way its predecessor did prior to 2008.  When the Cahill Energy deal crashed…. Interestingly, the Barbados Water Authority finds itself in a similar position with a spanking new headquarters, BUT, unable to efficiently distribute water to parts of the island. A situation that gave rise to the ‘water warriors’. This is a ministry which also has responsibility for waste water management. Enough has been recorded about leaking sewage on the South Coast.

Other big ticket items is the inability of government to adequately maintain the infrastructure- roads, buildings, vehicles to name a few. Why has Barbados not been able to earn Cat 1 aviation status for the country given its majority holdings in LIAT. An unhealthy NIS Scheme. An unsatisfactory transportation system.

Of course there is the economy stupid where there has been negligible growth in the economy in last decade supported by plummeting foreign reserves and skyrocketing debt. All the above however are symptoms of the lack of vision the country has not been able to benefit from in the last 20 years by implementing a relevant governance framework.

This is not an exhaustive list.

    Thank God that President put a Spoke in their wheels or they would be a Green Light all the way had Killery reigned! Much Respect to the man with Back Bone in these times in which we live! Both Obama and Killery’s right arms were Iranians, Valerie Jarret and Huma Abedin and the White-house was Plagued with the Muslim Brotherhood!

    From an Article from early 2016 where I Noted back then… “Few have determined what Obama is all about, and why his policies (both domestic and foreign) have been so executed. If we connect the dots correctly, the answer becomes obvious. Obama’s audacity has always been on a trajectory that surpasses the position of the Presidency of the United States. It appears that this position has simply been a stepping-stone for him to become …

    I thought it would take Obama at least Two Years after leaving office to take up the Position where he would be King of the World.

    Well it was expected that all the DEMs would deliver from their so-called “launch” would be drivel and vitrol…but like the Space Shuttle Challenger it barely left the ground and blew up into a million little pieces!!!!!…the DEMS have absolutely ZERO political mileage to campaign on!!! So they resort to the one thing they can do and what they are good at, which is to get on like the wild boys they are!!!!…Bajans just want an answer to one question…What do the DEMS want another 5 year term FOR? To do WHAT!!!!! It will be so SAD but at the same time so GLAD to see Miss Mottley single handedly BODYSLAM the bunch of half assed men running for the DLP at the polls!!!!!
    The DEMS theme for their “launch” was leadership, attacking the leadership of Miss Mottley of the BLP….Now i could only laugh because they do this when their so called “leader” is the biggest CLOWN to ever hold the Office of PM!!!. Let us examine some of the “brilliant” things Senor Froon has done just in these past 3 months..Firstly he literally waits 5 YEARS has expired in this parliamentary term to call elections….waits nearly two months after that to set a date which is a date almost of last resort because they still had to allow for nomination day. He also waits AFTER parliament dissolves ITSELF to install a candidate for St. John. That candidate does not come from that parish, is not familiar with the constituents and gives him only 1 month to campaign!!!. the DEMS do this while alienating a long time DEM that actually comes from that parish causing him to be motivated enough to run as an INDEPENDENT!!!!!…..The people of ST. John need to stop punishing themselves by electing on based Barrow’s memory!!!! Pray tell if two former PMs could not help bring that parish from becoming the laughing stock of Barbados pray tell how this group of JACKASSES posing as a govt can do it!!! I BEG the people of ST. John to help throw out the garbage called the DLP and vote for change!!!!..The DEMS are treating you all with contempt!!!!
    Senor Froon also declared that he didn’t shuffle his cabinet because he didnt want to embarrass those particular ministers. This has to be the biggest bunch of foolishness i have ever heard coming from a Prime Minister of Barbados. Anybody with sense would fire the PM after hearing that. it is IGNORANCE of the highest order…..This declaration may be the single most reason why Barbados has gone backwards in every ASPECT in life.

  • Please forgive me for going “off topic,”……….

    ………..but as it relates to Freedom Crier’s post in which the author suggested former US president “Obama Announces Bid To Become UN Secretary General,” I read information that suggests this claim has been proven to be FALSE.

    On 22 February 2018, the Your News Wire web site published an article reporting that former U.S. president Barack Obama had announced plans to become Secretary-General of the United Nations:

    “Barack Obama has announced plans to become secretary general of the United Nations, allowing him to advance his globalist agenda on the world’s stage.”

    The only source cited by Your News Wire for their article was a October 2016 report from a Kuwaiti newspaper, named “Al Jarida,” which was described as “far-fetched” and UNCONFIRMED by any other news outlets and does not name any of its sources at the time it was published.

    It is a known fact that any individual cannot achieve the position of U.N. Secretary-General simply through a process, for example, of how one would CAMPAIGN for the US presidency. A candidate for UN-SG must first be NOMINATED by the U.N Security Council…………. and then APPOINTED by the General Assembly, which comprises of 193 member states.

    However, people pushing certain agendas would obvious quote, as fact……from websites and other sources of information that support their particular agenda, without “fact checking” to verify if the information is actually true.

  • Ironically, I watched a youtube video about Obama’s alleged intentions, in which the narrator read from the AL Jarida article………. and the comments “mirrored” those of Freedom Crier.

  • Heard the hyprocrite Trini Dem and the J/A ms Decided trying hard to justify the disgraceful behavior of Sunday Night,s DLP Meeting.However kudos to Lisa Gale for her handling of the Trini Dem,who most Moderators allow to rant and rave without challenge on Brasstacks.Ms Gale asked her directly if she agreed with the appalling behavior and she dilly dallied saying she was neither agreeing or disagreeing with the behavior and Ms Gale rightly told her she felt sorry for her.Imagine a female agreeing with that nasty behavior,But obviously she is a Dem yardfowl so she could not be critical of the Dems,Ms Undecided,would obvo=iouly agree nothing better is expected of the simpleton,just spouting rhetoric she hears in George Street,The three female candidates Mrs Sandiford-Garner ,Ms Depeiza and Ms Byer Suckoo,should hold their heads in shame and should not get any female votes,neither Mr Blackett,Dr estwick or the PM,in my view.Noticed Ms Tudor of NISE was absent probably could not take the planned approach good for her.The most disgraceful Meeting I have ever seen or heard.Where are the women,s group in all of this?
