Prime Minister Mia Mottley Appoints Cabinet

Prime Minister Mia Mottley has hit the ground running and less than 48 hours after receiving an overwhelming mandate to govern, she appointed her Cabinet. It is a large Cabinet but one can argue two points 1. the enormity of the task requires the resources to efficiently manage, AND, there is the politics, she has 30 members to manage! As she solidifies her powerbase one expects she will consolidate as required or face the political fallout. The blogmaster will be fair and allow a few weeks for the BLP action plan to emerge before critique.

  • This is a reminder to those who are paying attention: Civil servants were part of the electorate and are waiting patiently for the fulfilment of the election promises as well as the forgotten appointments. For the last 10 years, apart from January 01,2008 when appoints were left as a mandate by the Owen Arthur Administration, the only appointments we’ve had were the political ones that were advertised and filled. There are persons who missed out that were acting from February 01, 2005 until today. They too, need some consideration.

Simple economics that even your late and not great economic guru a.k.a.

    I have no doubt that there will be many stumbles and failures with the new government over time. They have been cut from the same cloth as all the rest of us (including lepers) but now is not the time for childish and imbecilic tantrums as is seen on here. Give it time and you too will be able to have something realistic to gloat about but put a sock on it for now before you appear and make greater asses of yourselves.

    I am not normally one given to spitefulness but it is my opinion that the thirty zeros who were just dismissed should not be the only ones to be punished.

    David Mr Blogmaster, blogger Doc Martin gave a link for Caribbean elections results but any Google search would return credible sites…..so not sure why the data queries!

    Anyhow, we can use stats to create ANY spin we desire if we are shrewd and some of the above remarks trend in that direction.

    As was noted yesterday, our nation (according to Electoral & Boundaries Com data) has not surpased 65% (in that range, dont have the actual # before me) voter turnout since late ’70s. So yes it’s accurate that this year’s 60% may be low BUT it’s very much well within the 62%-64% turnout in last 30 years.

    We have dismissed govt twice in this way….with these turnouts! …. So yes the zero seats for DLP is unprecedented but it is also UNPRECEDENTED that any Bdos government had shiiittee flowing in our streets and lied about, obfuscated and incompetently mismanaged the problem.

    The statistical details of this election are really not as unexpected (they are startling and without precedent, true) as they may appear at first blush…just study the numbers.

  • Thanks David.

    Those numbers makes perfect sense and line up with my thinking on the matter if we reflect on the mood of the populace at the various periods.

    2003 people were moving away from Arthur and the blp but the DLP had not fully gotten their act together and therefore was not seen as a reliable option AT THAT TIME.

    By 2008 once again the talk of massive corruption & wastage with the blp, via the unprecedented cost over runs in almost every project,the growing arrogance of the administration etc all led to a foregone conclusion that there would be a change in government.

    2013 people had sympathy for the administration following the death of Thompson and the rough economic situation they met when they came in 2008.Plus there was the factor of the second poll done by Wickham which silent dems found offensive and so people who had intended to stay out 2013 election came out to vote to register their dissatisfaction.

    I have my views about this 2018 elections which I am still pondering on and fleshing out but it is clear to me that this was not a vote to put the first female PM or even a vote for the Bees – because everytime a man – in – the -street poll was done a large majority of the voters said they were fed up with both parties.This really was a strong vote against the dems for their various mis-steps and mis-calculations.

    Sorry to have to say it but people are going to sour on this government real early because of what I believe will be some bold ‘in your face’ actions ( aleady seen by the largest cabinet in Barbados history) which would have contradicted all that they and the academics at Cave Hill,the private sector people,Unions,media practioners and others have been lambasting the last government for.

    There is no euphoria in this victory and even the day after people kept saying there was a strange atmosphere in the air as though people were now coming to terms with what they have done and the implications of their actions.

    I for one will be watching the constitution with a keen eye.I trust the Underground family will do the same and I am particularly referring to those who have Country at heart and not party.

    Last advice to the dems who have been blogging on this site you need to up your game and don’t reduce your part any further.Think through your arguments before you make them.Forget those who clog up this site with multiple posts saying sweet nothing – we need reasoned arguments right now not nuisances.

  • From a very superficial review of electoral data from 1994 to 2018 I have come to the following conclusions; the average %voter turnout is about 62%, the average support for the BLP was 55% and for the DLP 45%. The BLP support has been more consistent while the DLP support has been quite variable. This contradicts the view that Barbados is DLP country. I would hypothesize that the BLP can count on at least 40% support of active voters regardless of the party’s performance in or out of government. The DLP should be very concerned because it appears to me to that it no longer enjoys committed through-thick-or-thin support. Should the BLP under Ms Mottley perform well (as is expected) over the next five years, the BLP will not only solidify their committed support but the DLP may actually disappear as a serious electoral force.

    The consistent 40% of the electorate that do not vote may be an attractive electoral target BUT much research and analysis needs to done to understand why these persons do not vote.

She must not only learn to delegate, but to have confidence in her ministers. Barbados is now an autocracy.
