Mia the DESPOT…Cometh the hour, cometh the Woman

Submitted by SSS

Mia AMOR Mottley. There is nothing more that can be said about Mia Mottley that has not been already told except for secrets not yet spoken about. She has been the subject of the good, the bad, the ugly, the downright wutless, and plenty of praise and hyped up talk from political loyals and would be lackies.

There are those who will defend her and the work of the BLP with venomous spit fire, and any criticism laid at the feet of this now looked upon prodigal saviour, results in a relentless attack of justifications, and the presentation of BLP achievements, all intended to persuade and convince.

In other words, we are not to speak about the axe the electorate put deep into the BLP tree stump on two consecutive elections due to the propensity of this party to behave like renegade monks a few years into their elected term. According to BLP supporters, what the people must do is believe in the BLP, even if it means showing them (by the way of a vote) how fed up you become of their boastings, arrogance, giddy head displays, lack of transparency and accountability, and personal prosperities.

What matters now is far more important than what the BLP did back then. So, vote BLP, because you are better off with them even though you are aware of their many shortcomings and personal self-serving interests. It makes no sense dwelling on or highlighting any past controversial issues or allege corruptions because they are irrelevant.

On the real issues, this despot who has begged Barbadians to make her Prime Minister, has given mere plastered promises of what she will do to tackle corruption. Her’s is carefully made utterance on the matter of corruption. It is just like the pinch of salt given to address the issues that the Auditor General has highlighted under the governance of both the DLP and BLP. And, it is just like the PAC report she produced just before the elections, which, more than likely, was intended to only highlight but not investigate.

So far, Mottley has dished out the accustom promised soup mixed with all the enticing ingredients to fatten the kiddy in order to bite he in the bam bam, later. One would think that Mottley would have learned a valuable lesson in not making erroneous and unrealistic promises that might not be possible to fulfill. I mean, why go down a similar road as the imbeciles on the DLP side when there is enough fodder to feed into the truth ‘grill’ that alone can augur your party’s chances to be the next elected government. But, no. The script remains the same like all other past elections campaigning: Promises made to win; win and articulate after why you cannot.

Will we finally see the reality of laws supporting anticorruption, accountability, whistleblower legislation, freedom of information and so on under a Mia Mottley formed government?

The SSS has made it clear that she sees Mia Mottley as a rogue. And, until a different side of her is presented than the one that says: she-MUST BE IN CONTROL OF ALL THAT SHE SURVEYS, Mia Mottley will remain in my eyes as a self-serving, power hungry despot, who might have Barbados interest at heart, but her personal desires are greater.

  • Yuh rass got it wrong! The despots are the Deplorable Lying Party. Mia will be the next PM of Barbados! Put that in yuh pooch and smoke it! If you say she begging Bajans to elect her as the next PM what did the dead King David do? What is the present pm doing? He begging baddd so badd he mouth so lying he now got to pay for it! They say talk cheap but his talk gine cost him some warm dollars. The Deplorable Lying Party of dishonorable members are fighting a losing battle. They may as well give up now and as the GG to ask Mia and BLP to form the new government. Barbados is disgusted with the performance of the Deplorable Lying Party. Look what they have accomplished in the 10 years in office.

    The increase in VAT was supposed to be 18 months.

    Barbados received 23 downgrades under your leadership
    EVERY economic plan FAILED
    Lied to the people when you said you wouldn’t send home public servants nor touch tertiary education. Oh and that you would follow the Last In First Out process for retrenchment.
    You said the NSRL revenue would address the problems at the Sanitation Dep’t., the QEH and give to public servants a coping fund – none of this was done
    The PM disrespected the people by refusing to speak to them directly but rather send messages via the media while he addressed his party faithfuls.
    This DLP administration asked the people to share the burden, yet took back their 10% while many can’t even get their tax returns.
    Citizens pay their road tax yet the money isn’t used to fix the roads.
    Over 3000 dropped out of UWI because they couldn’t afford it and the MOE said they could apply for grants to help – most applied and didn’t get them
    Not one single transport board bus or garbage truck has been bought
    There were approx. 260 buses in 2008, now in 2018 there are about 50
    The Minister of Drainage said a garbage truck costs around $200,000 and the MOF said it costs $700,000. Someone is lying.
    You purposely refuse to address or investigate the Auditor General’s reports or the Public Accountants Committee report
    The Foreign reserves are at the worse it has been since 1991 under a DLP government.
    Investor confidence is either extremely low or non-existent
    Public servants have not received a pay increase
    Cost-of-living is through the roof
    The south-coast sewage issue is still not fixed.
    This is the worse government in the history of Barbados.
    The lowest sugar production in the history of Barbados.
    Now the underhand sale of the Hilton rushing to get it sold before Dem leave office. Why the rush???

    Let it be known that the “failure” of former BLP administrations in falling short of delivering must be placed on the former leaderships of BLP administrations and NOT MIA AMOR MOTTLEY.

    When investigations reveal the gravity of loss of the Barbados economy, the cost of implementing “promises” will appear miniscule. To warrant confidence in any party engaging the electorate must lay policies, solutions and remedies.. all are promises until acted upon, given the opportunity to do so.

    M : PROTECTOR
    AMOR: LOVE
    M: DIVINE FEMININE.

    Mia Amor Mottley is roots oriented, communicates, delivers, a no nonsense person not a rouge, despot or controller, one that seeks dialog, INVESTIGATIVE, protecting. As a lawyer is articulate, knowledgeable, sharp with foresight, a workaholic, loves her communities and her country passionately… this much I personally know throughout her lifetime. Like all persons, negative influences has their roll to play until they are dropped from ones environment, their reality and actuality. We all are challenged in this existence.

    @ SSS

    I, being chief among the persecutors, will try to speak to this issue a little bit.

    I will try not do any of the expected prevarication which will assuredly follow this sensitive submission of yours (BARRING THE CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THE MARIPOSA CREW which will come.)

    “…corruption can flourish and exacerbate the conditions of people around the world who already have little say about their own destiny…” (a quote teifed from the internet)

    Corruption, though inanimate, DOES NOT EXIST IN A VACUUM, it is resident in people and thrives when good men and women say and do nothing.

    It has, and continues to thrive across the length and breadth of Barbados because people permit it to do so, if only SELECTIVELY. If it is my “fahr or muddah”, or some relative of mine, or brotherhood of the rose, we tend to selectively close our eyes to their malfeasance.

    Let me cite this example that shows how corruption is alive and well in our dear Barbados.

    Recently a policemen came here on BU and alluded to the names of a few of the drug cartel that exists here in Barbados

    He went through a list of aka’s and THEN FEARFULLY provided innocuous directions like “de drug dealer man who lives next to the house where them does tie out the black cow on the pasture…” and things like that BECAUSE HE, LIKE YOU AND ME?, fear “deading” at the hands of these drug dealers.

    Here we have a policeman, a lawman who we would figure would be protected by the Long Arm of the Law, who is baulking when exposing the names of these criminals, BECAUSE HE FEARS THE REPERCUSSIONS.

    His action, or is that “his inaction”, is even more frightening when we realize that even though he was an anonymous poster, HE WAS SCARED.

    That simple example of our fear to speak up is just a small representation of the wider disease that permeates our society.

    Such is the state of Corruption island-wide. We jes frighten to say anything cause we frighten to dead.

    The issue IS NOT Prime Minister Mia Mottley or Freundal Stuart or Chris Decimal Bonds Stinkliar it is US, because, WE THE PEOPLE abdicate our responsibilities and fear to speak out about what is right and what is wrong.

    Like IslandGirl, mine is the belief that “the incoming Prime Minister will tackle corruption because she has no choice …and because she KNOWS (definitively) that her legacy depends on how she governs Barbados…”

    Barbados is at the absolute bottom of the barrel and …AND… THE ONLY WAY OUT OF THE BADWORD THAT WE ARE IN, is through a re-calibration of this country anticipated under a new administration, one that will be led by someone who has the intestinal fortitude to make the change.

    Neither you or I, notwithstanding our written passion for and commitment to a vibrant, reformed Barbados, neither of us has proffered our-self for national duty, as has Prime Minister Mottley..

    It is also a fact that neither you, NOR your humble servant, is there AMONG THE 29 OTHER POTENTIAL REPRESENTATIVES, advancing a national anti corruption agenda.

    You do know that people on the outside looking in might be inclined to say that this our “cyberspace commentary”, this “collective BU internet warfare”, is just verbal flax.

    In fact, my fellow internet blogger, Dr GP, often has reason to speak of our Rum Shop gatherings in precisely this context.

    We can only pray that the outcome and Prime Ministership of Mia Mottley will be one with a much improved Barbados.

    The fifth estate MUST remain vigilant.

    Why do the people fear? You may seek to justify what you think is the main problem, but all fingers point right back to what elected parties have been dishing for years. Every organ of government tends to function in mediocrity, with the minister at the helm deciding on the day what might be right their eyes and not necessarily according to established protocols. If the rogue has anything to prove is that she will not allow herself or her administration to decide foolishly on the path in which Barbados must go. Not the same shite routes of doing business that create the most controversies, but ecstasies. She is not without fault. She has done a lot of corrupt things as well and not a boy can convince me that this rogue is gonna do the things that governance needs her to do.

    Why are you cussing me, girl? Telling me what the shites in the DLP have done is not going to bring any of them to justice. All that they have done to f-up the island is going to go down into the long halls of history’ past without any consequence to any of them. My focus is no longer on these shites. What matters the most now is what the next government intends to do in the name of good governance and that they understand fully what the electorate wants. If the rogue Mia Mottley is going to be the next Prime Minister then she must come clean, come good and prepared to do all the things that were not done when her party was in power, and all the things that were not done under the crooked DLP. My interest in all of this is good governance. WHAT PART OF THAT YOU LOYAL LAPDOGS DO NOT UNDERSTAND? Mottley and the DLP are not without spot or wrinkle. Focusing on what the DLP has done is not what is important at t his juncture; it must be on what the next forming party government will do and if the next government is willing to investigate what has so far been revealed from reports presented. Since the third parties have no chance and Mottley’s BLP party is the second half of the bad (yes the second half of the RH bad), then she and her party’s heads must be put to the plough. Our number one biggest problem is what the Auditor General reports every year and it is not reflected in one party who has formed the government but TWO.

    So will the rogue seek to do the following:

    —-Address the issues of the Auditor General’s reports
    —-Follow up on the PAC report published by her
    —-Set legislation in place to address the issue of corruption
    —-Increase the powers of the Auditor General
    —-Establish the politics of Exclusion when ministers do shite just like they establish the Politics of Inclusion
    —-Change the legislation and powers of the PAC to make more relevant and to function under a body of persons exclusive of politicians
    —-Will she punish any ministry that does not produce financials on time

    All you shouting Mottley, Mottley, Mottley, like if her ability to articulate well instantly translates into a good leader. She has the best opportunity to prove her worth, but she is rogue, a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and not a boy on here can convince me that she is good.

    If my last post seemed defeatist it is not meant to be.

    I try to test people’s mettle in the oddest of ways by using the only means available to me – skin in the game.

    I mean we can and do come here and talk all we like and make pretty posters and thing but at the end of the day what’s our “skin in the game?”

    We agree that, given our disturbing 50 years of independence, few of our politicians have been statesmen and, based on your prosecution here in this blog, one which noticeably has not garnered the comments of the big guns as yet, you have your reservations.

    So what can you do or what can be done? as a means to ensure that we go in that direction you are speaking of?

    “Transparency International consists of more than 100 chapters – locally established, independent organisations – that fight corruption in their respective countries…

    Corruption does not stop at national borders. The chapters play a crucial role in shaping our collective work and realising our regional and global goals, such as Strategy 2020. Transparency International’s multi-country research and advocacy initiatives are driven by the chapters…”

    It would seem the only logical progression, barring you leaving the comfort of the EU, and running for elected office, that, as a more serious and tangible element in this equation, for you, and others like you, to “up their skin in the game”

    Alternatively I’d like to suggest something less strenuous but which may elicit a similar outcome.

    Our country needs new pathways urgently for energizing the dying economy.

    You are part of an ecosystem that can bring worthwhile resources to the economic table with specific provisios as would be MUTUALLY respectful and symbiotic for you as a diaspora denizen and Barbados.

    Specific provisios is a euphemism for if dem going try to ef up your relationships in the EU you will exercise your exit clauses and implement your safeguards

    After all, no parent wants to see their child suffer, no matter how old the child is for anything that they have done. Any parent would want to shield their child from any malicious talk.

    He was clearly upset that a matter that had been settled years ago could now be an election issue ……….designed to inflict damage by two flawed men…….OSA and Fumble. Fumble once described OSA as a lonely old man without friends but it does seem as Fumble is in the same position now……….his loneliness seems to be causing him to be a bitter evil wicked man…….desperate to hold on to power at all costs.

    And to think that Freundel could mock the man tears tells you all you what manner of man is Freundel Stuart!

    For the rest of us, it’s probably in the interest of the populace this happened. MAM when elected owes her father a debt of respect for what these charlatans inflicted in her him. While decency would dictate that she not go after them personally so as not to appear vindictive, there is nothing wrong with her Attorney General doing what has to be done. Assuming of course that her AG is not a dummmy like you-know-who.

    What big guns you talking about. I wrote a few scathing remarks about Mia Mottley and the loyal rug rats came out with guns firing. Look, at the end of the day I know what I know about Mia Mottley. Not everything is hidden and in order to know one has to be part of ‘the collect’ to know the truth about this rogue. I am not going to take anything away from her that she does not already possess. If she wants to prove that she will a leader who wants to make a difference then she must show that she will lean towards the people and not to party. To show Barbadians that she is serious about changing the way we have been conducting current and governmental affairs, the following will please me and I believe the people very much if she will deal with all the things that she knows that is wrong with how Barbados is governed, and the mess that is the judiciary. She has been reading BU and plenty of things have been said about our bad political governance. Prove to the people that she is serious about correcting those. I do not care about her fancy speeches or jugging board promises. If you are going to be the next Prime Minister then be one who will be praised and love and not dislike like the idiot that ran the country into ruin for 10 years.

    My dearest SSS,

    I am feeling what you are saying…

    Some of us BECAUSE WE REALLY WANT a better Barbados and because we have seen what the litany of maladies have brought our country to WOULD PRAY THAT Prime Minister Mottley WILL BRING CHANGE.

    My big guns remarks refers to those bloggers who generally comment on BU but, BECAUSE OF YOUR TOPICS TITLE, will be afraid to even venture here,or if they do WILL NOT PEN ANY SUBMISSION because they fear some repercussions.

    Let me ammmmm shift the topic a bit to bring the context of that “big guns” statement into full perspective dear SSS.

    Suppose I was to invite you to go with me to a DLP or a BLP meeting.

    Would you go with me?

    I am sure that you would because your thought would be “I am going to evaluate the points being suggested by either party”

    And if I was to suggest that we stand up to the front of the meeting (because I of course would want everyone to see me with your pulchritudinous self) you would not flinch because you are not fearful of anyone SSS.

    What if de ole man was to tell you that IF I WERE TO EXTEND THAT INVITATION TO OTHERS HERE, many would not go BECAUSE THEY FEAR THAT IF THEY ARE SEEN AT THE MEETING OF EITHER OF THE TWO PARTIES they fear being branded the supporter of the BDLP?

    What if I were to tell you that motor cycle helmets and baclava sales in Barbados have skyrocketed because attendees of these meetings have been hiding their faces from the cameras?

    This is the mentality of the fear that I am talking about and this aspect of fear permeates the BU halls EVEN IN THE ARTICLE’s bloggers.

    Many (understandably?) fear “repercussions” SSS and therefore will avoid this submission lest their name is seen under “Recent Comments” which for them reads “Recently Departed” heheheheheh

    Why should I fear? None of the parties cut any cloth for me. I might use my favourite cuss words to express my frustration with the political system that has brought Barbados to its knees but I am not about spreading defamation. You will not hear me make any utterances about any of the politicians that is conjecture. I might dabble a bit in innuendo, but innuendo base on what they say and what they do. Take for instance the ignorant, stupid, arrogant shite that thinks he could be silent to Barbados for 10 years and after announcing the election, believe that he can come now and talk to them. He has provided enough ammunition to shoot his ass straight out from ever being elected again, and Mottley should simply approach this election with the truth, not crazy ass promises. That is why I am no longer interested or focus on the Stuart and the Dumpsy DLP.

    Mottley, on the other hand, is my focal point. This rogue has everything at her disposal to be a Prime Minister with a difference, but instead of exercising humility and restraint she has to promise a whole host of not possible shite, in instances providing a time lime when it will occur, and then making specific sounding back peddling statement that Barbadians should not expect everything to happen or be fixed immediately. What she can fix immediately is the shite policies put in place by these CUNTS from the DLP. What she can change immediately is putting in place the appropriate legislation and powers to make the Auditor General’s office a place for all ministries and departments to fear. And, by that I mean, powers to investigate without ministerial influence or involvement and the power to seize documents, and to affect procedures towards charges against any minister, PS, Department head whose financial practices lead to accountant anomalies. What she can change immediately is the PAC. Let the Auditor General and other light minded souls who understand accounting, make up the PAC so it can be relevant, and free of the foxes responsible for protecting the chickens. What she can change immediately is the politics of inclusion by introducing the politics of exclusion. What she can change immediately or introduce is a ministerial recall. What she can change immediately is this notion that no civil servant can be fired. If persons are repeated absentees, troublemakers, shirkers or counterproductive, replace them with persons who are apt and qualified to do a better job. What she can change immediately is the stupid NRSL, the ridiculous taxation system established by the liars in the DLP, the hurtful increase on the VAT, the wastefulness associated with projects of political choice, and the lack of the people’s say in national development. I want Mia Mottley to prove me wrong right throughout her time as Prime Minister, but reserve the right to continue to believe that she will remain, rogue, before there is any truth.

    You may or may not know this but all cancers are not the same and the rate that one will progress in your body changes from organ to organ from individual to individual and incredulously from clime to clime.

    There is a statistic even that states that once Korean men are diagnosed with these terminal illnesses that the die more rapidly than other nationalities

    But that statistic does not consume the hope in all victims irrespective of the coming together of all the other variables in perfect (dis)harmony

    Even while you see cells metasticizing in front your eyes YOU CANNOT GIVE UP HOPE ELSE WHAT WOULD BE THE PURPOSE OF LIFE?

    I, who am chief among the prosecutors, am prayerfully hopeful that Prime Minister Mottley WILL DO WHAT WILL BE RIGHT FOR BARBADOS AND BAJANS.

    Without a faith that is founded in My God and without that intangible hope that a good change will come, what would be the purpose of this?

    The proof ultimately will be in the eating of the pudding as you have pointed out.

    I too will watch vigilantly…

    No there are not, but they all head towards one inevitable ending, and that is: death of the whole by killing off those cells that are well.If you do not catch them early they spread to where they feel like but mainly to tissues more susceptible to their nourishing, most of the time tissues that are vital for sustaining life. We have had the plague of two cancers, one manifesting itself differently over 14 years in power, and the other, in 10 years of spreading its deadly cells throughout the entire root and trunk that use to be Barbados’ firm foundation and a punch described as being above its weight. Barbados has never had a female Prime Minister, and, therefore, history will be made. After history comes the rule. Her rule will be determined when she starts show Barbadians how different she will be and what she intends to do in fixing what we all have been complaining about for a long time. I do not trust the woman, but I am willing to say to all, including her, that I was wrong and humbly apologise. If she proves me right, I am going launch nothing but attacks on her and her administration and speak those things that I know to be true about her and not false. That I promise.

    @Northern, who wrote so intuitively: “Loved the cry show though, no wonder Bim has so many people in ‘acting positions’.” Excellent. Absolutely propa.😁

    Good actors have certain cues they can summon in order to generate tears as needed…whatever his was (even if genuine dismay and hurt) it was a great performance.

    You guys have laid out some awesome observations but yet I don’t see anything trending which explains the basic query of this soap opera: what really is Arthur trying to achieve? (Thrasing Mottley’s character/suitability as leader to change minds surely CAN’T be the alpha or omega intent here. We all know of her awesome character already)

    Mr Arthur spoke with too much specifity on finance/social economic minutia at the presser to produce such an embarrassingly inaccurate, careless presentation on the issue of taxes and interest payments.

    So unless this is a false flag intended to tease out other facts one can surmise that to take on your own former lawyer with possibly defamatory accusations like this …1. You are losing it (suggested above), 2. You have already lost it or 3. You believe you have a powerful get out of jail (or put him into jail) card.
