Senator Caswell Franklyn Fired from the Nation Newspaper

The blogmaster regrets to share the news that Senator Caswell Franklyn was dismissed this week (12 June 2018) from the role as a columnist at the Nation Publishing Company. Senator Franklyn has established a reputation as a  social commentator who is never afraid to challenge kith or kin. One would have thought given the paucity of Opposition in the House of Assembly the Nation newspaper would have seen the benefit in giving a platform to one of two Opposition Senators in a configuration where the Lower House is represented 29 to 1 and the Governor General had to exercise a razor thin judgement to appoint the leader of the Opposition.

The blogmaster hates the idea that the Senator was fired because he was critical of the government in his one and only column as an Opposition Senator.

    The Opposition is a “farce” because your beloved DLP government was a farce; and the people made the decision that the DLP lacked the requirements to be the government or opposition. A decision that was fueled by the behaviour of the DLP inside and outside Parliament, including yours here on BU. #watchmuh #watchwe

    You are missing the point big time. Here is a comment the blogmaster posted to FB.

    The point is that Caswell who has been a tireless advocate against wrongs in our little island is required now more than ever given what transpired on the 24 May 2018. The ease with which some of us are happy to accept some old irrelevant rule of engagement ignores the bigger issue. The blog is dealing with Caswell and his track record of public service.

I was never so proud of Barbadians than I was on the 24th when collectively they said no to the continued degradation of our country by a corrupt government. If Mrs. Motley becomes corrupted like they we the people of Barbados will vote them out too.

  • “……….so far what is to be seen is a govt holding press conferences with no voices to critically analyze what is being told to the public is that of the truth and that should be a red flag which should be of major concern to all.”
    +++++++++++++++

    Rather than answer any of my questions, you wrote rubbish.

    If Mottley holds a press conference during which she accuses the former DLP administration of some wrong doing, what PREVENTS the DLP from holding a press conference to explain their side of the story?

    I recall a few days after the contract signed between the Port Authority and Global Ports Inc. was exposed, the DLP issued a statement in the press explaining the reason behind their decision.

    The DLP does not have a presence in Parliament, yet a few days after this new BLP administration delivered its “mini budget,” 4 DLP members held a press conference to criticize it.

    Solutions Barbados’ Grenville Phillips II and UPP’s Lynette Eastmond also commented on the budget…….reinforcing the fact that Barbados REMAINS a democratic society.

    If the DLP, SB and UPP were prevented from expressing their opinions, then I could agree with you that we have to be careful of a dictatorship. But this is not the case. Freedom of speech and association still exists in this island.

    But for you to suggest that a government should hold a press conference and invite people to refute statements or give an opposing view, when such has never been done before…….is ludicrous.

    I suspect that, because of the 30 -0 situation in parliament, the DLP’s strategy is to stir up Barbadians by mentioning, in innuendo, that the society is set to become a dictatorship. And that is your role in this forum. However, they should have allowed someone that is much more intelligent than you to “spear head” the agenda.

  • Mariposa has long gone past the defeat of the dlp. However it seems to be a narrative in play to keep dlp supporters mouths closed when criticising this govt
    My focus will remained on govt interaction with the populace and its truthfulness as to whether the govt sole purpose is to ride on an agenda to keep the eyes of the populace close while in doing so delivers a pseudo form of subliminal dictatorship which is hard to see ir undermine but easy to partake
    The red flags of such interaction with the public are already put in place and staged as repetitive news conferences with suttle phrasing and repetitive words to sensitive the mind that what govt is doing is right

    Already such concerns have been highlighted by international creditors after Mia had a news conference to tell public barbados had defaulted on its loan but fail to give relevant and pertinent details as to how she made the decision and who where those economic advisors in agreement with here decision
    Here now at the eleventh hour barbadians are being told that those creditors to whom barbados has defaulted was not involved in the decision making
    This is a matter which goes to truthfulness and to how what and in which manner the truth would be told to the people

    I believe any individual has a right to support and defend the political party of their choice and to criticize any party they choose to.

    However, what I am currently seeing is the DLP and its supporters have been using this forum to stir up disharmony in the country by constantly pushing their dictatorship narrative, not based on factual evidence, but “manufactured evidence”……..and in circumstances where the current BLP administration has not done anything, so far, which suggests a dictatorship is on the horizon.

    So far, we have seen a government that is willing to engage the public, stakeholders, special interest groups and the social partnership………something unheard of during the DLP’s ten year tenure.

    I believe what these people are doing is wrong.

    The evidence of which i speak is clearly shown or reflected in dictatorships which use the media to control the way people must think or behave because the voices opposing are muted since they have no way of acessing govt documents in ways that can refute or disclaim
    Here in barbados the media has not been shy in advocating a political bias for this govt
    So therfore a question which should be asked who will bell the cat.
    For certain not a blp supporter or anyone having an affliation with the govt be it Union Private Sector or media

    Haven’t you heard Mia saying in her first or one of the early press conference where she outlined what she intends to do and stated – watch me?

    Thompson in a few of his early press conferences asked the people of Barbados to ‘wrap themselves around the bdos flag’

    Now contrast the two -‘watch me’ and ‘wrap yourselves around the flag’.

    If there were honest pollsters around this election result would be dissected for :

    (1) What it said and;

    (2) What it did not say

    And then the mouthings would be different and some people would feel less intimidated to voice dissent – or else the red brigade would jump down their throat telling them ‘Redwash’.

    Don’t only listen to the very loud voices of some of the BLP CALF EATERS – BUT PAY ATTENTION TO THE SILENCE OF A LARGE SEGMENT OF VOTERS – the majority in fact who did not vote for Mia or any party or voted for one of the other parties.

    Long may the third parties live.

    You are a tower of joy, wisdom, strength, and spiritual course
    You are a vision of love, and power with the almighty as the source.
    In a world so cold where the single mothers cry
    A vision of love, for your children you stood by
    When confusion is abundant and too hard to bear
    The vision of love from wisdom’s womb, you are always there
    It would take one thousand lifetimes to express my gratitude
    You are a vision of love daddy and I truly, truly love you.

    What we are seeing here to some degree is the Americanisation of our political discourse. They are “polite terrorist in our case” if we disagree or stop or don’t start to drink the “kool-aid”. Yet we all gladly embrace the right to freedom of speech and freedom to assemble and associate written into our constitution.

    The press or journalist are attacked by some segment of the party faithful. A “you cant believe them because … ” campaign is being waged; on both sides. As DJT once said “they are good people on both sides”. DJT never elaborated on what exactly they were doing on each side.

    I will simply say this. If Any in the BLP or DlP or any other party, think/feel that all knowledge resides within their party HQ then we got a demi-god in our mist. Apparently at least 4 gods given each individual party’s mouthing during last election cycle. (So god(s) in some fashion is a Bajan?) I for one don’t think that will ever be the case.
    Our competitive politics framework doesnot always see the cream of the crop in our society dreaming/aspiring to be politicians. Honestly the “elected 30” are chosen from the selected among the party ranks. If you think about it the political parties official membership as a percentage of the adult population in Barbados is relatively low.

    The man who they said made 18 misstaments of facts in one morn tweet storm (one can be deferential and not outright say the President lied) is being heralded by you as ‘calling it like it is. Good joke dat.

    And the same man who has a cabinet secretary operating in the palms of lobbyists and doing rather unethical things but whom he likes and refuses to dismiss you boast is destroying political shennagans in govt. 🤣.. as the bloggers say: oh loss, ma belly!

    Very good routine you have here on BU…an invitation to Comedy Central or some other comedy club is definitely in your future…keep the jokes flowing!

  • “I am glad Mr Trump loves the US…but quite disappointed that such professed loves appears by the cascade of his words and actions to be firmly located in a discriminatory place which hails the actions of white supremacists and supports divisiveness”

    Where were these according to Mr Stuart ” incoherent noises” when former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan Robert Byrd was occupying a life long seat in the USA Senate on behalf of the Democratic party whose members love black people and which has been garnering majority black support since the sixties.

  • Interesting that Barbados Today now features a column called “Opposition Speaks” by Opposition Leader Joseph Atherley. The blogmaster notes that the last column posted by Senator Franklyn we called it “Senator Franklyn Speaks”. Clearly the rules of engagement for BT do not agree with the Nation newspaper. Continuing to observe.
