Rush to Sell Hilton: Benedict Peters???

The two main political parties held national political meetings on the penultimate weekend BEFORE the May 24 General Election. After wading through much of the rhetoric and palaver three questions peaked the inquiring mind of the blogmaster. Hopefully they will be answered in the public interest BEFORE the general election.

  • Why the haste to sell the Barbados Hilton hotel BEFORE the 24 May 2018?
  • What is the involvement of the candidate for the City Henderson Williams?

Go to 3:00hr point on the YouTube video to listen to Mia prosecute the Hilton matter.

  • Will Mia Mottley respond to the Benedict Peters charge levelled by the DLP platform?

 

See pre-action protocol letter sent to Sinckler from lawyer Leslie Haynes on behalf of Benedict Peters.

  • How is any manifesto to be taken seriously if it is not a social contract AND performance by both parties confirm a cherry picking of the promises to be implemented.

  • Look miller the dlp went into their first year of goverence being told that barbados was running on all four cylinders and the foreign reserves had reached their desired levels with the economy holding a billion surplus in financial support
    Sound good on paper but what was not expected by govt was a high level of debt which for all purposes eroded much of the gains and govt having to depend on populace to make sacrifice in order to pay the external as well as internal
    Yes the govt did lay out a plan as given the financial statictics of the period going into 2008 which by all means shown a healthy economy
    Now i rather not remind all and sundry as to how barbados economy was also hit by the financial global meltdown which is on record for all to see.
    Now in 2018 we are where we are looking for a better or alternative solution to tackling barbados debt
    However no one in their wildest dreams would have expected that the blp opposition lead by Mia mottley would use a fiscal pork barrell strategy to lie and deceive the public all in the name of getting votes knowning full well that barbados high debt cannot absorb the kind of election giveaways she proposes
    Yes it is not as if she does not know of barbados debt problem but for Mia to take the electorate along a course of furthering the economic stress of barbados economy is blasphemy.
    All of what she knows and states in her manifesto most of which are boldfaced lies and the type of election engineering to fool the people mind exposes her character and the need for desperation to what she belives is a privilege to entitlement

    Every way I go, I hear people cussing OSA every time he opens his mouth………..I am so over him and so disappointed in the way he has treated the party which made him.

    That certainly answers my question…so barbadostoday did also get a cease and desist letter from the Peters/Harris attorney Leslie Haynes re mentioning boko haram …

    ..now is that not a conflict of interest somewhere in there..Haynes is the senior attorney for CGI Insurance Harris, now also the attorney for the aggrieved Peters, send a warning letter to Harris’ newspaper, on behalf of Peters…..when will the lawyers/QCs in Barbados stop that clearly unethical and dishonest behavior..

    The level of instruction the senior attorneys on the island have gotten from their insurance company clients is one of dishonesty, lies, deceit, corruption and destruction and abuse of the lives of claimants while misusing the supreme court of the land.

    How is it no one likes when the shoe is on the other foot…Harris of all people bitterly complaining through his newspaper…… complaining while he is still abusing injured people in the supreme court.

    “We may not always agree with everything Mr Sinckler says, but on the point of us having a right to ask questions with a view to knowing “the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth”, we are certainly at one with him.

    And having, also like him, been threatened with legal action for merely seeking to find out the truth in an editorial last week about Mr Peters’ involvement, if any, in Barbados, we are also of one mind with our Minister of Finance in terms of how we respond to ridiculous and downright stupid threats.

    In fact, it makes us question sometimes the level of legal instruction that some of our most senior attorneys have been exposed to.

    For since when is it illegal to ask a question in Barbados, particularly of the leader of the Barbados Labour Party Ms Mia Mottley who aspires to be our next Prime Minister?

    Is this no longer a democratic country and is it not the duty of the fourth estate to keep those who aspire to leadership to account?

    We vividly recall that on the last occasion that we dared ask Ms Mottley to come clean on her legal qualifications, we were threatened will all manner of legal fire and brimstone.

    Now, lo and behold, a week after Ms Mottley was asked by us “to set the national record straight on the BLP’s relationship, if any at all, with Mr Peters and indeed Boko Horam”, another poisonous package of weak legal smoke arrives, couched in cowardly threats and making malicious claims that were never once made by us. If you doubt us, visit our website and re-read our May 7 editorial entitled We need not court trouble with any Boko Haram for yourself.”

    If the bar asdociation and the disciplinary committee were not themselves so clearly corrupt, none of these decades old destructive things could ever happen in the supreme court.

    On every document I have seen, it’ states very clearly that Haynes is the lead defending attorney for all of CGIs/Harris’ personal injury cases, he even turns up in court to try to intimidate and frighten injured people I am told and saw for myself on one occasion him believing he could intimidate an elderly badly injured claimant..

    …..all the other times his little useless minion junior lawyers appear in the court to delay the court process for years on end, as I have seen on more that one occasion,,,…..so why would Haynes’ office be sending a cease and desist letter to an entity belonging to his own client Harris …on behalf of a new client.

    And people want to take issue with the CCJ..for clearly understanding that this level of dishonesty in attormeys is part of the problems plaguing and aiding in the destruction of.supreme court.

    “We vividly recall that on the last occasion that we dared ask Ms Mottley to come clean on her legal qualifications, we were threatened will all manner of legal fire and brimstone.”

    And what did the author of that statement so full of Arthurian vindictive bile do?

    Did Ms Mottley “come clean on her legal qualifications” or did she slap a law suit in your backside costing your electronic rag sheet a tidy sum settled out of court?

    Since Ms Mottley has not yet produced her LEC to the Registrar why have you stopped prosecuting the LEC case against Ms Mottley?

    Didn’t she figuratively tell you to “F” off; a luxury the corrupt Chris full of misplaced braggadocio dare not entertain with Benedict?

    BTW, K J, Ms Mottley will get the money to buy garbage trucks from the same NSRL collected from Bajans from September 2016 to May 2018.

    Why don’t you ask the same pathological liar why was the money collected not used for the purposes given in his 2016 budget which would be ring-fenced for the purchase of garbage trucks and related equipment along with the funding the public health services?

    Since you like asking questions why not ask the same compulsive liar why he cannot come clean on the Four Seasons sale or even the Brandons Performing Arts Centre to be grant funded by Chinese since 2012.

    While you are in your investigative mood why not ask him if he is still in fear of his life; not from Mr. Peters the Benedictine monk in the Friar of Boko Haram but the two imaginary assassins in Barbados whom he told Parliament about a couple years back.

  • If we were smart, we would ask ourselves the question:
    Why would ANYONE want to take on responsibility for a broke, dilapidated, shitty, little place that is highly in debt and in which multitudes of problems abound?

    It then becomes clear why KNOWN COMPETENT potential leaders (some of whom we can name) have shown ZERO interest in the role.
    If they did, we would expect them to; be forthright, be open, to have a workable plan in mind, and to seek to bring ALL Bajans on board with their recovery plan….
    Smart peoples would SEEK OUT such persons and ENTICE them to lead us to safety…. but NOT brass bowls.

    On the other hand, we should expect that vultures would always be waiting to pick the national skeleton of any remaining meat…
    Such vultures would of course be secretive about their intentions – holding back any ‘manifestoes’ to the last minute; refusing to be forthright about their “vulturistic” background; attacking anyone who questions their intent; and having no SENSIBLE plan of recovery – but of course making promises of ‘bliss’ to entice the brass bowl carcass to be as compliant as possible…

    It is REALLY interesting that politicians should now seek to use libel suits to resist providing answers to questions that SHOULD have been unnecessary in the first place – as this information should have been provided UP FRONT in the name of transparency.

    But the nature of life is such that stupid animals get themselves eaten every single day by predators and vultures.
    There is a level of idiocy at which Nature kindly allows the vultures to do their work….
