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.

    OSA “hubris” is a multiple negative, as per the comments, 90% saw right through his verses, The DLP was happy about his former defeat from office of PM, party leader, being held hostage as an Independent and his declaration of exiting politics, while the BLP respectably sees him as Former Leader with possible negative agendas, not even by way of advice. He had time and opportunity. SAD.

    @NineofNine. That so-called $80 bIllion of ” INVESTMENT”, multiple times our GDP, is hogwash. Where are jobs and green field projects to show for it? That $80 billion is just an accounting electronic flow and nothing else. It does nothing directly for the real economy.

    @Artax, one political writer noted that politicians can often win the populace with a minimum of analysis and details by playing strongly to an emotive point of interest.

    Phillips has generated ZERO emotional connection with his economic platform and surely as you so rightly highlight there is also ZERO substance also.

    Where is the report from the economist validating his one year turn around?

    Where is the internal analysis from his economic experts showing HOW the turnaround will happen?

    This continual line of reasoning from Phillips re the 40% cap is infantile as you suggested and frankly irrelevant now.

    We (people) apparently support Phillips because he has the confidence to come forward and the fortitude and nous to have crafted a full team of like-minded change-agents….hooray.

    SB initially offered “hope”. That ‘hope’ has decreased. It was never appreciated one doesn’t have to recreate the wheel. Barbados is in need of a good housecleaning. And the public mismanagement has steadily deteriorated, to the point where stopping the downward motion, and making repairs is a monumental job in itself. Too many moving parts are malfunctioning.

    The B’s mini Manifesto is a joke, nuff sweet sounding titles, but when you examine the content within each heading, it is weak. Very weak. Their only excuse is they are unsure what they’ll find.

    The Hilton sale is very smelly. At a time when politicians are only to happy to take credit for anything they can spin as “good”, the silence and stealth guarantees something is amiss. Not one RH word on Paradise either?

    I wish Owen would make up his mind, he claimed he did not approve tax waivers but now also hints he does not know if Mia went behind his back and approved one to her father…how could he not know, was he not minister of finance and actively holding that portfolio at the time.

    He however states….

    “The Prime Minister also said that during the merger of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Barclays into FirstCaribbean International Bank (FCIB), a circumvention by a member of Cabinet had cost the country $87 million in property transfer tax and stamp duty.”

    If she cost the taxpayers 87 million dollars while kowtowing to the bank, just say she did it.

    If that was the reason some say he fired Mia as AG at that time, just come out and say so….they are so used to the deceitful secrecy, they still cannot be forthright, not even when the island has been totally destroyed and now need people who are forthright just to survive this social degradation caused by ministers and politicians over the years..

    , apparently once elected, none of the ministers believe the people need their money and just up and give it away to whomsoever will, then take whatever they want for themselves, as it pleases them, it has been a pattern with both governments for decades..

    Somehow they all believe the money, tax breaks and concessions are theirs to do whatever they feel and as they please without the knowledge and permission of the people…they are very disrespectful of the same people who elected them.

  • Politics is a real nasty game in trute

    Maybe two years ago we were cautioned by William Skinner, when we argued that the DLP will loose the coming elections.

    We could not have envisaged that a DLP regime which has brought Barbados to such ruination could still have a fair change of even coming near to competing, far less winning again.

    Yesterday, as seen above, we tried to tell this emerging tale, with significant push back by some elements. And we expect more twists and turns, both ways.

    Little did we know, at the time of writing, that OSA would make our reading prophetic.

    We must admit that when we heard FJS, on Sunday night, in the ‘Lower Green Market’, keying up OSA for an intervention we imagined that these two had that planned.

    Only an asshole that such a thing happens out of thin air. The next question we are considering is whether OSA intends a ‘Don Blackman like’ intervention.

    OSA has sworn that he will never leave the BLP or Barbados with MAM in charge. He has failed in the first but may feel able to prevent the second. He may well be a game-changing variable.

    In the same way, when we heard about the Nigerian money in the campaign, and the possible involvement of Benedict Peters, a man not unknown to this writer, and knowing a few other things about some other personalities involved, we imagined that there was the possibility of fire from whence came smoke.

    Notwithstanding, most people here, not excluding David, seek to repel from certain truisms.

    We even had a ‘scholarly’, christian, jackass mustering the temerity to venture that Sinckler was not able to repeat his claims, when he had done so the very night before, in more visceral terms.

    Politics! Nasty yes, but interesting as well.

    Neither does he (Stinkliar) have to be afraid of the two imaginary men who were overheard by a senior law enforcement official to be plotting to kill him.

    Stinkliar’s imagination is so creatively infused with alarming fertility in that he has painted in the heads of ‘Christian-minded’ Bajans a picture depicting the jihadist presence of a Boko Haram type group amid the local Muslim community on Kensington New Road recently visited by Mottley.

    Stinkliar would be apologizing alright- even if not in the glare of public acknowledgement- the same way he was forced to apologize to the same Mottley in Parliament regarding the big lie he told of not knowing about the increase in remuneration for the Chairman of the NIS.

    Stinkliar is a pathological liar supremely suited to Machiavellian type politics and it is his dying wish to attend Codrington College to actualize his lifelong goal to pupate into another ministerial form and become a man of the cloth.

    Let’s vote Stinkliar for Bishop of Barbados!

    That ploy can only fly if MAM is arrested and charged for defrauding the Treasury between today and next Tuesday. But this can only take place if other very senior civil servants who would have ‘administratively’ executed the fraud are placed in the same accused boat and treated as prisoners awaiting bail.

    The same way ministers of the Crown are not accounting officers and cannot be charged for the illegal disbursements of taxpayers’ monies so too they are not empowered to write-off tax liabilities unless approved by Cabinet.

    Otherwise, it would appear to be mere electioneering poppycock being displayed by a politically irrelevant disgruntled 2013 loser and an out-of-touch fumbling fool who cannot see that he has no political clothes on jut like the eponymous Emperor strutting on the stage in front of innocent children called the young voters?

    How could that coward who cannot handle ‘Opposition’ politics be so deceitfully wicked as to take full responsibility for all acts and omissions- both good and bad- which occurred under his leadership from 1994 to 2007 can now be turning his quisling back on his “Mea Culpa” persona?

    I could not agree with you more, David.

    After all that Stuart and the dems did to him in 2013…….after he helped Fumble to remain leader by not siding with the gang of 11…….he took a private note passed between the two of them and exposed OSA’s hatred for MAM……OSA lost in 2013…….so that was good until the Stinkliar was trying to get help last year and then Fumble who is said to be very spiteful got his ultimate revenge on OSA by publicly humiliating him by not allowing Stinkliar to give OSA the pick as Head of the Advisory Council on Economics.

    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.

    No wonder Billie Miller is taking to the platform this week!

    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.

    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.
