Verla Da Peiza is President of the Democratic Labour Party

[BARBADOS UNDERGROUND] It is official, Verla Da Peiza was elected president of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) at the 63rd Annual General Meeting. The blogmaster extends congratulations and wish her every success in the task of resuscitating a party that was rejected in an unprecedented way on 24 May 2018.

Both major parties have females at the helm, we wait to adjudge if this will translate in better governance of the country.

Da Peiza has something in common with Prime Minister Mia Mottley, both logged public utterances which are uncomplimentary to social media. Da Peiza labelled the blogmaster a traitor for posting the voluminous Cahill documents that exposed malfeasance and mismanagement at the highest level of the former government. The blogmaster will write off her comment as a DLP Senator toeing the party line.

Again Congratulations Verla!

  1. RE the Bim Scholarship like the free education system was to enable the indigent – at the time a large portion of Bim- to be able to go beyond secondary school by excelling at A levels now CAPE or whatever they are called these days.
    WHERE IS THIS WRITTEN DOWN ANYWHERE AS FACT?

    i once looked in depth of the scholarship winners and save for one all came from well to do families who could afford to pay uni fees or were in a better position to do so than other bajans.
    LOL
    GO LOOK AT THE BOARDS IN HC HALL
    TAKE DOWN THE NAMES FROM THE BEGIINING
    CHECK OUT THE PEDIGREE OF THOSE WHOSE NAMES ADORN THESE BOARDS
    COME BACK AND TELL ME WHICH OF THESE WINNERS WERE INDIGENT


  2. Trust fraudulent Fruendolittle to blame social media for his own inadequacies, incompetence, arrogance and that of his ministers and their corruption.


  3. Everybody, please relax, do not fight each other!

    There won´t be any new debts in foreign currency in the nearer future anymore. Problem solved. Barbados is so bankrupt and tainted, nobody will lend the island a single US- oder EU-Cent anymore. I do not wonder that there is no resolution with the IMF yet.

    Before the IMF hands over any USD to the island, MAM must fire lots of clueless civil servants and must privatize or shut down half of the state corps. Alternatively, she can opt to devalue the local Mickey Mouse-currency to a sustainable level where the formal value matches the very low productivity.


  4. @James Greene August 13, 2018 12:29 PM “free at point of service uni education was brilliant for a time- to create a black educated middle class to serve the civil service with excess going to the private sector- its time is up. we can no longer afford it.”

    I put it to you that we need it even more now.

    And who the hell do you think is paying for this “free at the point of delivery”education if not the same black middle class? In my last 20 years at work I was paying between $16,000 and $24,000 per year in income tax, plus property tax, plus VAT. For that kinda money you don’t think that my little Susie and Johnnie deserve a “free” education?

    If the government don’t spend the money collected on the tax payers and the tax payers children, we know that the political class will find a way to steal the money and deposit it in American and other foreign bank accounts, so that that money is available to Americans and other foreigners to educate THEIR children, while our number of college graduates drops, and drops, and drops until Barbados in back in the 1930’s again.

    I don’t know if some of the old men on this blog understand MORTALITY, that is to say some ALL of the 1930’s scholarship winners are dead, dead, dead, and so are most from the 1940’s. So we have to constantly replenish the stock, that is we have to replace the old people and the dead people.

    No point talking about the scholars Adams, Barrow, Adams, Thompson etc. and their collegues in medicine, law, engineering etc. Those generations are dead or dying. [the life expectancy of a Bajan man is 74.]

    WELCOME TO THE 2018 SCHOLARSHIP AND EXHIBITION WINNERS.

    You are the young people. We need you badly. We cannot survive without you and your youthful classmates.


  5. @Mariposa August 12, 2018 11:36 PM “ask Mia how much money she is paying Jong from the public purse to spread fake news and propaganda”

    Maybe ’bout $5,000 per month, which if the Americans are right about Donville would have be enough to pay a Jong type for 14 months. Maybe if the DLP had paid a good man or woman $5,000 per month, the DLP would not now be crying in its collective soup.

    So the DLP=not only incompetent, but cheap as ass too.


  6. @Looking on August 13, 2018 11:54 AM “I thought barbados wasnt ready for a female prime minister.”

    i waiting to hear from Maureen Holder of CBC fame on the election of Verla.

    Maureen Sweetie: Where art thou?


  7. Tell them Simple..don’t know who these clowns think pay into their pensions, what they need to do is put pressure on the Mia government to stop allowing the greedy business people to force the government ministers through bribery to marginalize and sideline these scholars when they return to the island to contribute and open businesses or the jealous minded lowlifes in the civil service and elsewhere who tend to drive the scholars out when they attempt to contribute via job placements to make a difference and roll back the 1950s mentality by bringing meaningful changes to the minds of those who are yet to climb out of their slave mentalities.


  8. @William Skinner August 13, 2018 5:55 AM “The now hated Owen Arthur a few short years ago said that Mia Mottely was unfit to be Prime Minister and she will not find favour with the electorate. Today Mia Amor Mottley is Prime Minister of our country. Errol Barrow almost three or more decades ago made a statement about Gertrude Eastmond regarding sex. Kerrie Symmonds when a Dem, now minister of Tourism as a Bee, once insulted Mia, Liz Thompson by reffering to them as 1000 pounds of fat , or words to that effect or some other insulting adjective. Mia was kicked to the curb and back stabbed by the men in the BLP a few short years ago. So both parties have a history of despising and insulting women.”

    What Owen Arthur may not have understood is that we women, the majority of the electorate, did NOT share his views of Mia.

    What Errol Barrow did NOT understand is that when he insulted Gertrude Eastmond he was also insulting us, our mothers, our grandmothers, our great grandmothers, our daughters and our granddaughters. They say that elephants and women never forget. 30-Love in the DLP’s tail. And tell Barrow and the old boys that that “love” has nothing to do with sex.

    Ah yes Kerrie and the 1,000 pounds of blubber. We waiting fa Kerrie. We have not forgotten, although we did punish him in the 2013 election. Did he think that we fat women did not feel insulted when barbs were thrown at Mia, Liz etc. We heard. Election defeat in 2013 in ya tail. And we still waiting. We are patient. Very, very, patient.

    And as for the short (and tall) men in the BLP. We ain’t faget ya neider.


  9. @T.Inniss August 13, 2018 9:16 AM “Chris Sinckler valiant efforts in keeping the bdos dollar’s parity with the U.S. dollar intact – ,the reduction of the national debt, – his success in holding together the various arms of government and ensuring that public servants salaries were met,- our foreign and local debts were paid, – the Hospital was funded, – schools and school meals systems were provided for.”

    Valiant my ass.

    We have not forgotten that Chris as Minister of Finance raised VAT from 15% to 17 1/2% for an 18 month period he said. Nearly 10 years later we are sill paying 17 1/2% as the VAT bleeds us dry.

    We were paying for everything Chris did, AND paying his salary and now his pension too. Don’t you start patting him on the back yet. We are still bleeding money.

    30-LOVE in ya tail.

    And that LOVE has nothing to do with sex.

    Lolll!!!


  10. @ All Who Are of The Opinion that the IMF Will Be Implement a Punitive Regime

    For there to be a “buy-in” by the IMF for a BLP spearheaded recovery programme, THE BLP GOVERNMENT MUST HAVE SOLID RECOVERY INITIATIVES which show the clear pathway to recovery.

    It cannot, as Brother In Arms Bush Tea has posited, be the traditional “shifting of the chairs on the deck of the Titanic”.

    The IMF going see through all those smoke and mirror schemes AND WILL NOT GIVE A FELLER A CENT.

    So all those ingrunt schemes of “resizing the Public Service” OR “moving people from one ministry to another” JES AINT GOING CUT IT

    Mia and HER THOUGHT LEADERS have to bring tangible realizable projects to the IMF table.

    Projects that have reasonable, realizable turnaround times.

    And not air fairy speculation like “making aquaria from the rusted bodies of old fridges” sort of idiocy that certain of her 1st Eleven team is ONLY ABLE TO PRODUCE.

    And this is where the rubber hits the road

    So all the posturing that her mouf giants been selling her with the snakes skin oil dat going gots to go.


  11. @ Simple Simon

    Many of these commentors here DO NOT UNDERSTAND, NOR CAN THEY IDENTIFY WITH, the poor people that are going to the University of the west indies.

    They think that WHATEVER THE ARBITRARY FEES THAT ARE COOKED UP FOR THE UWI, the sheeple must pay.

    Now of the many commentators one (or is that two ?) spoke of a means test to determine if a party should be made to cover the full economic costs which has yet to be calculated by a means other than pulling a number out of the behind of one Ronald WeJonesing and Chris Stinkliar and one Head Boy Boyce.

    BUT HAVING SAID THIS, we still arrive at the same endgame of shifting chairs on the titanic if all we are producing are lawyers and civil servants and have no plan to diversify the economy AND WITHOUT THOUGHT LEADERS who know how to do this, we still doomed arent we?


  12. @Sargeant August 13, 2018 9:33 AM “If a week is a long time in politics what is a year or two? Two weeks ago, the odds favoured Donville taking over the reins of the DLP and look where we are now.”

    But, but, but, a week ago we did not know what the Feds had on file. I did not hear about the charges against Donville until after 7. p.m. of Monday 6 August, 2018.

    So what do we know about any others of the political class?

    i say virtually nothing.

    So how do we predict their political futures? Right now we can’t.


  13. @James Greene August 13, 2018 10:35 AM “why in this day and age should uni be free?”

    Because as I said before it free because it int free.

    We the parents of the students are paying for it through very high taxes. It is we money. We want it spent on education, and health. Not on fat salaries, and pensions and fancy houses, cars and holidays for the political class.

    And as I said before if the government does not spend the money on us and our children we strongly suspect that some of the political class will steal our money and stash it overseas.

    So spen’ it on we children I say.


  14. We wait and see if the feds have anymore grand jury indictments or any other country has any other bribery, money laundering complaints against former ministers etc before doing anymore predicting..lol


  15. David August 13, 2018 11:21 AM

    Let them bray, hard ears they win hear…

    The full saying is “hard ears you won’t hear; own way you will feel”.

    Right now the 30-0 DLP feeling. On the morning of May 25th the look on Freundel’s face tell told me that he was feeling.

    The bracelet on Donville’s ankle tells me that he is feeling.

    Hard-ears, hard-ears, hard-ears.

    The old people had no formal education, therefore they had to be very wise.

    Hard-ears you won’t hear. Own-way you WILL feel.


  16. @Hal Austin August 13, 2018 11:43 AM “While we discuss rubbish in this blog about rescuing the failed DLP and read the nonsense the chairman writes, 11000 children from across the region have just failed to get any marks in their CXC exams. How many of these were Barbadians? If so, which are the guilty schools?.”

    We need better parents, better students, and better teachers but unfortunately those things are not readily available in the market place.

    Even so CXC did not say “11000 children from across the region have just failed to get any marks in their CXC exams.” What was said is that 11,000 did not get any PASSING marks. So if for example 50 is a pass, some got 49. Zero marks and 49 are not the same. The student who got 49 may return next year and mat earn between 50 and 70 next year.

    Some of those students in formal public schools, and at “lessons” places will go on to earn the CXC’s needed for polytechnic, community college, or university entry. Some will then enter technical and trades schools, some will go into service industries where no CXC’s are required, some few may make a career as entertainers or sports people.

    What we must not do is write off our young people because they failed to get passing grades on their first attempt. better to give the young people a second chance than to have so much money knocking around that the political class are tempted to engage in money laundering.

    I say spend MY tax money on our young people.

    No member of the political class–NONE–needs or deserves a Beemer.


  17. During the BLP reign between 76-86 Tom almost gambled out Bim to Kow. Tom used to lose so much that in order to pay Kow he gave his contracts to build road etc. Drugs became prevalent during that time and vindictive Tom caused a certain school friend who used to work at a popular hotel on Bay Street not to work in Bim. Vic who was the minister of transport bought a plantation in St Lucy. Another Bold fella bought one in St Thomas and a certain Lammie said if you are not B you should starve or words to that effect. Lammie came thru the airport loaded with pharmaceuticals and nothing came of it.

    single sex schools became integrated – one of the biggest mistakes i would posit

    during the 3 term reign of Arthur the political includer the scandals are too many to enumerate but these are some-

    The VECO bribery scandal to build Dodds. VECO was a tainted corporation that a internet search easily revealed yet it got the contract. The Feds had an operation on VECO and numerous recordings and documents. VECO confessed that it bribed ministers in the Caribbean for contracts

    for political favours a prominent fast food owner paid minister huge sums

    The Gems of Barbados project – Arthur bailed out the indebted hotels of longstanding BLP yard fowls and the same fowls went on to manage the statutory organization overseeing said hotels . well what happened… millions of dollars vanished with no one held accountable.

    husband of a minister given the contract to build all the firewalls on government housing units, paying him up front and work never done. the same person got the contracts for asbestos removal from govt building

    $700k spent on 10 x 10 public bathroom on Silver Sands

    Minister got a Benz for purchasing old Benz buses from Brazil. Transport Board now have to spend $500k on maintenance on said buses

    disappearance of files of prominent drug on alleged orders from the Attorney General at the time. Said drug dealers went to the opening of parliament.

    The highly questionable 3S contract to expand the highway by said minister

    the contract to Barrack when Barrack had never built a building more than 2 storeys

    the World Cup scandal. Instead of building a purpose built cricket oval for $5mil Kensington was refurbished for over $25 mil. Cruise ship was hired to house excess visitors for Kensington. Minister got a cut and the cruise house about 100 people made up of the crew and the minister’s friends. The minister then bragged and said he will never be poor again. He then brought a farm near Gregg.

    the BIM public was assured that CLICO was a sound investment

    Minister of planning giving permission to cut up agriculture land and zone 1 land for a price

    Wuk fuh wuk

    the hardwood scandal

    the redirection / M/L of close to $1 mil of campaign donation

    said man settled his divorce for over $2mil

    minister diverting $5mil from the funds of a minister of prime

    PM saying that he hired Guyanese who has no permission to be in Bim to work on his house. Nothing was done to the man who admitted he broke the law

    it is during this time that land and house prices skyrocketed. wages never kept pace.

    the population was told that land was only an asset when they complained about the wholesale sell off of the West Coast. Barbados’ priced assets were sold off in order to make Bim a first world country. the govt borrowed and spent and the average bajans followed suit. so drunk was he with selling off assets that he argued that Oistins police station should be relocated and that beach front property sold and even Coleridge and Parry it was rumoured was on the chopping block.

    bajans shopped in Miami sometimes on a monthly basis. and slowly bajans turned into Americans. we ate American food turning our backs on stew food, cou cou and the local fare. we were well on our way to becoming first world with all the attendant problem- huge debt, greed and a voracious appetite for every American gadget and latest style including obesity from junk food. our goose was cooked. that is where our down spiral if not started was exacerbated.

    according to Grenville Phillips the DLP tax citizen to finance Bim and the BLP borrow. there is sometimes this talk that when the BLP is in power White people spend and money circulates. Money is around is true because the BLP borrow and spend it but it is not spent by the White business sector it goes into their coffers. A lot of the 7 bil according to Phillips borrowed in Arthur’s time went to the same sector, which represents a huge transfer of wealth to the private sector from tax payers. and even with all this money in the air no black business of significance came about.

    It is true that the last iteration of the DLP was an abject failure but the BLP hands are far far far from clean


  18. @ Simple Simon.

    You know some days you does get it right spot on!!

    You said and I quote

    “…What Owen Arthur may not have understood is that we women, THE MAJORITY OF THE ELECTORATE, did NOT share his views of Mia.

    What Errol Barrow did NOT understand is that when he insulted Gertrude Eastmond he was also insulting us, our mothers, our grandmothers, our great grandmothers, our daughters and our granddaughters. They say that elephants and women never forget…”

    My dear lady dese people do not understand what you are saying a-tall, a-tall, a-atall!!

    And therein lies the rub.

    If you go back to the week before elections you will note that de ole man made mention of stopping a specific thing.

    And that was related to the Kerrie Simmons attack on women while on the BLP platform!!

    It was distasteful and derogatory YET NOT ONE OF THE DLP COHORT was able to comment on this distasteful display.

    Not one…mostly because dere sleeping giant was confident in his win.

    And here they are talking about Verla being an interim leader until they regroup!!!

    Simple Simon let me tell you something DEM GOTS ANOTHER THOUGHT COMING WITH THAT BADWORD BADWORD girl.

    But we gine left dese big guts menses who does lie about de size of dem parts, (OF WHICH DE OLE MAN IS ONE) to their follies

    Watch Muh Now!!


  19. Which only goes to prove that they al…l DBLP cabal …want locking up for selling out the majority population who pay their salaries and pensions…and whom they have sold out to the minority parasites, crooks, thieves, drug and gun traffickers, bribers and money launderers, for the past 52 years..


  20. @ President of the DLP Ms. Verla Depeiza

    You are not going to be any interim President IF YOU LISTEN.

    Now mind you, remember that de ole man dislikes de DLP like poison but what has to be done is Barbados MUST SURVIVE ALL TWO BOTH OF YOU

    Because in your current configuration WUNNA IS DE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

    So Here is your game plan

    https://i.imgur.com/Uo5bBMO.png

    If you follow it, you will be there in 2023 AND REMEMBER DO NOT RUN IN ST JOHN.

    I would tell you where to run today but dat would declare what is the Seat Perilous to the BLP and yuh cant do that yet


  21. @ the Honourable Blogmaster

    Your assistance please with an item for Simple Simon.

    @ Grenville II

    By the way, this is also your game plan in fact this is the gameplan for any 3rd Party


  22. The CXC registrar said only 20% of the region’s students get to do CXC exams. !3% of those entered to do CXC exams get no acceptable grades in any subject. That means that only 17% of the region’s children get a cxc certificate of any kind. Given the poor social and economic outlook of the Caribbean, which comes first, the low educational attainment or the poor economic state?


  23. No. I haven’t read a book since I left elementary school in July 1967.

    Should I have done so?

    If so why didn’t you tell me this before?


  24. David – “A person should have a basic resume to recommend for a job at first instance.”
    Quite. What a pity the disaster Obummer didn’t.

    You dun see Artaxerxes’ comment at 10.34 a.m?

    He said “…Freundel Stuart has blamed the manipulation of social media as one of the contributing factors for the DLP losing the May 24 general elections and has asked for a regularization of these sites.

    David……..you and PUDRYR immediately came to mind……but more so PUDRYR, because of his “not one effing seat” campaign.”

  27. David August 12, 2018 10:46 PM

    “Walter how do you like the post general election DLP team? Is it the dream team capable of kickstarting your party from ground zero?”

    David,
    Let me say up front that I am not a spokesman for the DLP.

    Whether it is at the national level, or at the level of the political party, the process of change can be managed in a structured positive way, or it can become cataclysmic.
    Barbados and its major institutions have silently opted to go the cataclysmic route.

    Just over a week ago, big men with big egos were getting ready to tout their big achievements in a big effort to become the big boss of the ” big able” DLP.
    Today, these men have become so small in people’s estimation, that they are now restricted to playing pool with atoms and molecules in our minds.
    How come that, in the darkest hour of the DLP, not one minister in the Thompson/Stuart administrations could stand up as candidates for a post within the party?
    Cataclysmic change at work, and a lot of Barbadians now suspect that it ain’t over yet..

    From a harsh political perspective, the DLP is fighting for survival. The institution is struggling at a time when the results of the 2018 general elections show that thousands of DLP members and supporters turned their backs on the party in shame, disappointment, and disgust. Rebuilding will not be easy, and the notion of a dream team is nothing more than a luxurious fantasy at this time. Ground Zero? The DLP is in a hole. That is ground minus something, not zero. They now have to fight to get back to zero.

    Yet, when all is said is done, at a time when not one big man in the DLP could rise and stand up against charges of bribery, money laundering, betrayal of the public trust and a wide range of infelicities, the weight of the institution fell upon a woman, with no opposition.

    Recognizing that many political parties have died in Barbados before, those of us who would like to see the DLP weather this storm of political embarrassment and then rebound, must wish the new President and her team good luck.


    • @Walter

      All the big shot political scientists suggest a cooling off period is a good idea given the shellacking of the 24 May. Some go further that the party leaders who will emerge must shed themselves from the scent of Stuart et al administration.


    • @Walter

      The latter point you made is an interesting one. DLP supporters – captured in Stuart’s address yesterday -seem comfortable that history is bound to repeat with the DLP rising from the defeat of the 24th like others have done through the ages the in similar circumstances.


  28. @Georgie Porgie August 13, 2018 6:51 PM “waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait YOU LEFT PRIMARY SCHOOL IN 67? I THOUGHT YOU SAID YOU IN YOUR 70’S.

    So who is to say that I didn’t spend a few years in standard 7.

    You think that I bright like wunna?

    So who is to say that I int lying, then or now?

    This is a blog, not a church nor university classroom, nor a court of law.

    Trying to findd the source. I’ve captitalized six words and assume I3% =3% and as a result I am disputing your numbers…
    3% of 20% is 0.6% of the total. Making it that 19.4% get a certificate of any kind.


  31. Mariposa and the J/A T Inniss although I do not care what happens to the Dems after,their disastrous rein 2008-2018,i am still of the view that both Ms Depeiza and Mrs Sandiford- Garner are perennial losers and political lightweights,who seemed to be place there to hold on for the time being.Neither of the two has done nothing of note as Senators over the years,but that is the choice of the Dems so let them live with it.


  32. “So who is to say that I int lying, then or now?

    This is a blog, not a church nor university classroom, nor a court of law.”

    lol..sometimes I wonder about them, I really do, amazed at the antics and exceptions on an anonymous blog.


  33. “Manigault Newman’s book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” is set to hit shelves Tuesday, but has already made national headlines and paints the President as an ignorant narcissist who routinely spews racially charged and sexist language.”

    Am here trying to put my hands on a free copy, don’t plan to pay a dime for free entertainment..lol


  34. Dear Verla DePeiza

    I was reading on Barbados today (forgive me Honourable Blogmaster) the following words of the deposed and hopefully debarred former Prime Minister Fumbles while speaking of George Pigrim

    He said and i quote “…“I hope that after a short respite, he will make himself available for service as an officer of the party again. George’s energy, commitment and inspiration can still be of great benefit to the Democratic Labour Party…”

    IF THERE IS ONE PERSON THAT YOU MUST ENSURE NEVER FORMS PART OF YOUR CADRE is is this charlatan George Pigrim.

    IF YOU WANT TO LOOSE then encourage him as part of your team, mark de ole man’s words

    “@Walter

    David,
    You and I have watched enough bank robberies and money heists on TV to know that there are two things you do after carrying out a a “job”: Stash the dough, and lie low, in that order.
    In the Barbadian case, is this what “all the big shot political scientists” are referring to as the “cooling off period”?
    Suppose whilst they are “cooling off”, someone else is turning up the heat? In all types of saunas, political and otherwise, big men end up sweating profusely.
    I think “that the party leaders who will emerge must shed themselves from the scent of” Uncle Sam.


  36. @TheoGazerts

    should be 13% (thirteen percent) get no acceptable grade. So 87% of the 20% get some kind of certificate. 87% of 20% = 17.4% which rounded off to nearest whole number = 17%


  37. The DLP is a Blight – and cursed by their pronouncements of 1974 and what transpired from the Pulpit
    and the lips ar St. Michael’s Row, Bridgetown,

    DO NOT COME BACK NOWHERE ROUND BAJAN POLITICS

    DEMS THEN : DEMS NEVER EVER AGAIN
    VERLA OR NO VERLA

    THE PEOPLE OF BARBADOS MUST NOT FORGET THE DLP
    1971 to 1974- 1974 -1976 – BARBADOS DESTROYED BY THE DLP
    1976-1986 -BARBADOS SAVED BY THE BARBADOS LABOUR PARTY

    1986-1988 – 1988-1991 -1991 -1994 BARBADOS DESTROYED BY THE DLP
    1994 -2008 -BARBADOS SAVED AND RESUSCITATED BY THE BARBADOS LABOUR PARTY
    2008-2013- 2013-2018
    DITTO –
    The foolishness that is the DLP must stop and if that Corrupt Bankrupt Political waste of a Party known as the DEMS cannot see that, BARBADOS must not give them the chance to wreck this Country ever again. Be off you waste

    DEMS THINK THAT People Foolish ?

    JUST ASKING

It is patently clear that neither Verla nor Irene can distance herself from the record of performance of the DLP 2008 to 2018 as they both were representative of the DLP Government and defended its policies robustly spitingly in the case of Verla and urinepoorly in the case of Irene the Dean of political failures of the Fatted Calf Brigade.
    Hopefully we have now seen the last of the incompetent former PM on CBCTV screens and as negroman,one of Dem said he can ride of into the sunset and write what he can remember of his experiences in a job to which he brought neffin and from which experience he will carry neffin.


  39. Dear Verla,

    To all of those people who are saying that you are an interim caregiver de ole man would advise you to say this

    “How many of the EITHER DLP or BLP supporters earned $72,000 BDS last year?”

    The fact is that 83 percent of the female population does not earn that sort of money.

    In fact de ole man would hazard to say that 60 percent of the population which is predominantly females according to the 2010 census does not earn $36K a year., the amount that pornville is purported to have stolen

    You really do not have to appease de men Verla.

    All you have to do is to appeal to the women and you gone clear

    Your message WITHIN AND WITHOUT has to be one of equity.

    Be that access to education, to job opportunities and to being paid what you are worth be you man or woman you have to show people that a woman is entitled to a fair day pay for her work

    And not one cent more NOR DOES SHE HAVE TO ACCEPT ANY WUK FOR WUK.

    Some of us men have and had mothers (some of us did not) but you see this corruption thingy that Donville is purported to have done you have to give everyone the message that IT IS WRONG, IF HE IS GUILTY.

    Do a video Verla, SHOW BAJANS YOUR LIFE as a mother and a professional woman.

    Do the same for Irene and show how our mothers and grandmothers and our sisters HAVE TO WORK HARD.

    In that census report as one reads the economic activites that women HAVE TO WORK AT you see who are the single female heads of household and that your are at least our equals in all aspects of life.

    Use the soft touch Verla and get the assistance of your brother(s) Francis to weave the logic in your message so that we males do not feel threatened by you but are comfortable with your programme.

    Show them that you are in this for the long run and that you WILL BE HOME FOR XMAS

  40. Balance is critical in this likkle rock called Barbados.

    So as not to allow either of these parties to feel that after May 24th 2018 THEY CAN RIDE US BAJANS like they have been doing for the last 48 years de ole man thinks dat it is time dat a few good men draw a line in the sand to say “thus far AND NO *** FURTHER”

    To this end the grandson has composed this article that fellers like T. Inniss and one Mariposa does like to piss parade pun but do nothing about.

    Again de two uh wunna gots to understand dat DIS IS ABOUT I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO MY COUNTRY BARBADOS AND TO THE FLAG… and not about these assorted DBLP slime bags.

    Either they rise to the occasion or we going vote dem to *** out and during thier tenure let dem know that GOD DOES NOT SLEEP so we his servants will keep awake cause HE so commands

    As i said the article was emailed to the Honourable Blogmaster and he will post it AS PER HIS PREFERRED & ESTABLISHED SCHEDULE

  41. “I think “that the party leaders who will emerge must shed themselves from the scent of” Uncle Sam.”

    Lol..now why would we want them to do that when am so enjoying the movements of the feds these days, we do not only want the criminal cabals/enterprises and cartels on the island broken up permanently. …we want them to be too afraid to regroup.

    …where millions of dollars are concerned and of which they have become accustomed since the 80s…they will none of them not want to let go free money easily…we want to rip them all away from their comfort zones of not paying any consequences for their criminal actions.

    As things now stand the majority population have been given a slight reprieve from the decades of corruption and thefts so dutifully undertaken by the minìsters and minority business people over two generations and are finally for the first time in their disenfranchsed lives well placed to monitor the criminals in the parliament and in the minority business community….it is in the majority population’s best interest to constantly keep eyes on them.

    Fruaudulent Fruendolittle should himself be wearing an ankle monitor for his collusion and enabling of Leroy Leper and Clico when both him and Donville jumped in the newspapers with threats to futher victimize clico policyholders in order to cover up their friend leroy leper’s thefts…and then there was thiefer of the house Carrington’s crimes against a wheelchair bound senior citizen and Lowe crimes ……and…..and….

    I always knew Karma would not let go that clear case of victimization by two ministers against vulnerable people who pay their salaries and pensions…may those federal ankle monitors spread far and wide and for a very long time.


  42. As a matter of fact, as a blogger in another forum said…ALL the ousted former ministers, senators etc….really need to take a well deserved trip to the good old USA our favorite satan, where they all love to launder money.


  43. this is an excerpt from something that Grenville Philips wrote-

    “The Democratic Labour Party believes that we finance our development; the building of our roads, airports and these things by taxing people. The Barbados Labour Party believes that we finance the development of our country by going into debt. Debt financing, you borrow money and then use that money to build,” Phillips said while recounting the country’s debt history.

    “Errol Barrow [the first Prime Minister] got the country and it was debt free and after his ten years we were $259 billion in debt. Tom Adams came along with the Barbados Labour Party and after his ten years $3.1 billion in debt. However, we had an airport and good infrastructure. The DLP came back and Erskine Sandiford struggled with the high debt and we were left with $4.3 billion in debt, so the Barbados Labour Party took over but they took the debt to $9 billion . . . .The current DLP led administration has now taken it to $14 billion,” he charged.

    we often blame the DLP for financial issues in Bim but if this quote is true, the problem is seen clearly. massive borrowing equals high debt equals repayment equals taxes equals austerity equals borrowing equals a false economy equals bloom and doom equals the IMF.

    Like you, J.G, Mr. Phillips Jr. has got his figures all knotted in his father’s accounting knickers.

    If you swallow the financial filth you must regurgitate politically-tainted crap.

    Where did Mr. Philips (or you his politically coloured parrot) get that figure of “$9 billion” of debt left by the BLP administration in January 2008?

    Can the Central Bank- the custodian of Barbados’s monetary matters- attest to that “$9 billion” politically-fudged figure?

    Why not show the BU audience the validity of your regurgitated political red-herring
    by ‘fishing’ that same $9 billion dollar whale of a misleading figure of indebted obesity out of the Central Bank’s vault of monetary statistics?

    There are three kinds of LIES: “Lies, damned lies and statistics”. Which one are you vomiting this time around?


  45. No response to James Greene August 13, 2018 5:06 PM

    Wonder why. Is it because most of what he wrote COULD be true ?


  46. @ James Greene,

    Are you suggesting that the so-called progress made by the Owen Arthur government was really the accumulation of debt? How terrible.


  47. My first impression on hearing the makeup of the new DLP executive was ” Scraping the bottom of the barrel”
    But maybe history would prove me wrong


  48. Hal,

    The last DLP did a real disservice to Bim thru lack of problem solving and general indifference. I understand they were under financial pressure but they could have at least communicate better.
    But that is not to say that past BLP administrations were scandal free or great.

    During the BLP reign between 76-86 Tom almost gambled out Bim to Kow. Tom used to lose so much that in order to pay Kow he gave his contracts to build road etc. Drugs became prevalent during that time and vindictive Tom caused a certain school friend who used to work at a popular hotel on Bay Street not to work in Bim. Vic who was the minister of transport bought a plantation in St Lucy. Another Bold fella bought one in St Thomas and a certain Lammie said if you are not B you should starve or words to that effect. Lammie came thru the airport loaded with pharmaceuticals and nothing came of it.

    single sex schools became integrated – one of the biggest mistakes i would posit

    during the 3 term reign of Arthur the political includer the scandals are too many to enumerate but these are some-

    The VECO bribery scandal to build Dodds. VECO was a tainted corporation that a internet search easily revealed yet it got the contract. The Feds had an operation on VECO and numerous recordings and documents. VECO confessed that it bribed ministers in the Caribbean for contracts

    for political favours a prominent fast food owner paid minister huge sums

    The Gems of Barbados project – Arthur bailed out the indebted hotels of longstanding BLP yard fowls and the same fowls went on to manage the statutory organization overseeing said hotels . well what happened… millions of dollars vanished with no one held accountable.

    husband of a minister given the contract to build all the firewalls on government housing units, paying him up front and work never done. the same person got the contracts for asbestos removal from govt building

    $700k spent on 10 x 10 public bathroom on Silver Sands

    Minister got a Benz for purchasing old Benz buses from Brazil. Transport Board now have to spend $500k on maintenance on said buses

    disappearance of files of prominent drug on alleged orders from the Attorney General at the time. Said drug dealers went to the opening of parliament.

    The highly questionable 3S contract to expand the highway by said minister

    the contract to Barrack when Barrack had never built a building more than 2 storeys

    the World Cup scandal. Instead of building a purpose built cricket oval for $5mil Kensington was refurbished for over $25 mil. Cruise ship was hired to house excess visitors for Kensington. Minister got a cut and the cruise house about 100 people made up of the crew and the minister’s friends. The minister then bragged and said he will never be poor again. He then brought a farm near Gregg.

    the BIM public was assured that CLICO was a sound investment

    Minister of planning giving permission to cut up agriculture land and zone 1 land for a price

    Wuk fuh wuk

    the hardwood scandal

    the redirection / M/L of close to $1 mil of campaign donation

    said man settled his divorce for over $2mil

    minister diverting $5mil from the funds of a minister of prime

    PM saying that he hired Guyanese who has no permission to be in Bim to work on his house. Nothing was done to the man who admitted he broke the law

    it is during this time that land and house prices skyrocketed. wages never kept pace.

    the population was told that land was only an asset when they complained about the wholesale sell off of the West Coast. Barbados’ priced assets were sold off in order to make Bim a first world country. the govt borrowed and spent and the average bajans followed suit. so drunk was he with selling off assets that he argued that Oistins police station should be relocated and that beach front property sold and even Coleridge and Parry it was rumoured was on the chopping block.

    bajans shopped in Miami sometimes on a monthly basis. and slowly bajans turned into Americans. we ate American food turning our backs on stew food, cou cou and the local fare. we were well on our way to becoming first world with all the attendant problem- huge debt, greed and a voracious appetite for every American gadget and latest style including obesity from junk food. our goose was cooked. that is where our down spiral if not started was exacerbated.

    according to Grenville Phillips the DLP tax citizens to finance Bim and the BLP borrow. there is sometimes this talk that when the BLP is in power White people spend and money circulates. Money is around is true because the BLP borrow and spend it but it is not spent by the White business sector it goes into their coffers. A lot of the 7 bil according to Phillips borrowed in Arthur’s time went to the same sector, which represents a huge transfer of wealth to the private sector from tax payers. and even with all this money in the air no black business of significance came about.

    It is true that the last iteration of the DLP was an abject failure but the BLP hands are far far far from clean.

    This was posted earlier.


  49. James Greene

    Honest analysis would concur with all you have said about the BLP’s method of governing and their responsibility for putting us in Debt.

    Listening to the former P.M. Freundel Stuart Speech at the Party Conference – former P.M. David Thompson – wrongly in my estimation – decided that the situation (financially in 2008) was so dire that he was not going to go digging up dirt on the former BLP Policians but would work at getting Barbados back on track financially – and this he did until his death in 2010.

    The BLP ARE NEVER SO GRACIOUS – and worse if it is Mia – so all sorts of charges of Corruption being thrown up -to keep the public agitated – and to give her a covering for her actions.


  50. “Minister got a Benz for purchasing old Benz buses from Brazil. Transport Board now have to spend $500k on maintenance on said buses”

    that former minister sell out extraordinare’s Benz now looks like shit, just like the transport board buses, is that old sell out related to the current AG by any chance, asking for a friend.

  52. Charles Skeete.saying that the DLP has resorted to scraping the bottom of the barell makes for a full belly laugh when comparisons are made as to those with likes of AG George WAlton Payne and Dale Marshall whose names are now being linked to land fraud allegations
    Not to mention the leader whose name has been linked to illegalties like vote tampering recorded in the court docket filed in the case between Hinkson and Payne

    Don’t take it personally.
    You will now have less time to be part of the ‘Mariposa crew’ no doubt….
    In any case, it is more like scraping the bottom of the topsy…
    LOL
    ha ha ha


    • I don’t get it many political scientists/alchemists and yardfowls seem to have written Verla’s epitaph, even before she had completed 48 hours as the President of the DLP. Some of you consider her as lightweight and some sort of stop-gap until a real leader has emerged.

      I really don’t understand how people have reached those conclusions without ever seeing her perform at that level. But I must ask, how many of these clairvoyants know Verla, or have ever spoken to her? I have met and engaged her on more than one occasion and I do not recognise her as the person that is being portrayed.

  54. Old fowl..the land fraud and thefts from the elderly were around under the exgovernment for 10 years as well..and what did any of them do to stop it, we should ask Donville right?


  55. Bush Tea
    The largest topsy there is in Barbados right now is the sewer system
    I guess you are right Bush Tea cause i see the govt is making good use of Wilfred Abraham to empty it all over social media


  56. @ Senator Franklyn

    You are so very correct but here is the thing Senator.

    She was a dark horse that the DLP AND ITS PATRIARCHAL CONSTRUCT, DID NOT EXPECT TO WIN EITHER.

    So what they have taken to doing, AS IS THE STYLE OF THESE SPECIFIC MALES, is to decry the woman, and her literacy and more specifically her gravitas.

    She is extremely articulate and now that she has found her own space, outside of the shadow of the DUFUS Fumble, she will define a new agenda.

    Most of these commentators see dimly through a tainted glass though complexioned by BDLP loyalties read biases.

    You know something Senator Franklyn.

    You may not like me nor I may not like you, and we may both have our reasons but WE RESPECT each other.

    You are a man of the poor man and the underdog and I am a poor man and an underdog so you going appeal to me.

    You hold no brief for anyone AND THEREFORE YOU ARE FEARED FOR YOU MOUF. I wish that when i get older I could be just like you.

    You know Ms. Depeiza unlike like many others here.

    If you were to use your normal style you could easily share that she was in a jackass race and for a while brayed but you dun know that she is NOT A JACKASS.

    THis is why de ole man is suggesting that she does a few things to highlight WHO SHE IS TO (i) HER PARTY, TO (ii) BAJANS and to the (iii) INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY.

    She cannot continue to keep her light under a bushel ESPECIALLY WHEN MIA AND HER CREW using government resources to highjack peoples computers et al.


  57. @ Piece Uh De Rock Yeah Right who wrote to Caswell ” I wish that when i get older I could be just like you.”

    So all this “de ole man” and de grand son ” is just smoke and mirrors. lol


  58. @ Caswell
    So when did you become a judge of people’s capabilities? …especially women?
    Certain types only gotta smile in your direction and…..
    Looka…!!
    Do you want Bushie to expose your human weaknesses now…?

    Is this the same Lawyer dat was on TV every damn time Bushie turn on … along with one of the ‘Hal jokers’…?

    Steupsss…
    BOB….
    (bottom of the barrel…)


    • Bushie

      My weaknesses have mostly been exposed and to tell the truth I enjoyed my weaknesses when I could. Exposing the rest now would not cause me to change.

    All of your posting are ignored, with results of BLP 30, DLP 00. The DLP is in a deep hole of all kinds of Shiite. you, Mariposa and T. Inniss are trying to empty the monkey shiite on Bu now, after an INNISS get lo stay with Uncle Sam, the guts of you DLP yardfowls will be on

  61. Mr Franklyn I normally agree with you ,I do not know what you see in ms Depeiza ,a lady who stated she had no problem with her colleagues cussing ms Mottley ,a woman like herself,which when taken with many of her lacklustre presentations in the Senate along with the poser Mrs Sandiford -Garner,cannot possibly rate her as any serious challenge to Ms Mottley,going forward and would have to be in my view a stop gap.The question to be asked is why would the others withdraw and other what conditions for her to be unopposed?.As for Piece I will ignore the conspiracy theorist,until he,runs out of gas,as nothing he posts will stop Ms Mottley from trying to revive the country from the,deep do do it is in because of the try a thing government.


  62. While the blp yardfowls kicking Depezia. The real Pain of Mia default is kicking local businesses
    Finally these dunderheads who were calling for quick intervention by any means necessary is now being awaken to the reality that Mia so called approach of fixing the Barbados economy is turning out to be a major pain in the arsr for them
    Waiting to hear Enuff and Lorenzo goobbly gook response


  63. In his swan song the former PM fudged the truth as usual by laying claim to building the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.The QEH,a modern Seawell Airport,Government Headquarters on Bay St.and the modern Port are all the handiwork and vision of the Grantley Adams led Barbados Labour Party
    It is remarkable that the man called Doolittle can tell his party faithful that they provided housing all over Barbados but the man failed to mention the mother of all housing given aways by the administration he led.Not one word of Barbados’s biggest real estate giveaway and scam aka the Villages at Coverley.Its like COW the land giant who gave away a piece of land at Farmers 10 years ago to a fellow who now complInaing that he has no papers for the supposed giveaway.Most people think COW was hoping to get the remaining land sold at market prices.


  64. @ Lorenzo of Enuff

    The Theorist will continue to present the facts as they are and until you gents show differently none of you can stop the thousand of people from seeing AND connecting the dots.

    Mia Mottley has two pressing questions to answer 60 days into her regime

    Why did she lie about White Oak’s accomplishments?

    AND

    Why is she lying about Charles Jong?

    https://i.imgur.com/mt2Nffn.png


  65. And Mariposa wants to know Why Mia lie about fixing the south coast sewer system
    Why did she lie about putting money in peoples pocket
    Why did she lie lie lie and continues to lie about being transparent
    What a god dam liar


  66. @Piece Uh De Rock Yeah Right August 14, 2018 1:17 PM “DLP AND ITS PATRIARCHAL CONSTRUCT,”

    Patriarchal construct what?

    You mean male chauvanist pigs.

    I am glad to see the back ‘o dem..


  67. Lol…yep…chauvinist pigs who now they are afraid to go to prison for all the crimes they committed against the people and country…are pushing the women in front until things cool off…

    Simple…they think we don’t know how dirty they are…the frauds.


  68. I can only say that Peter Wickham got it right with his evaluation of Verla Depeize

    He said and I quote “…“I think that Verla should start off by saying what went wrong. I think she needs to do that post mortem almost immediately; get that out of the way and then start the process of rebuilding . . . looking for new candidates, and starting a candidate selection process that is grounded in democracy so she would need to go an rebuild the constituency bases…”

    Both Tennyson Joseph and Dr George Belle are far off base with this one BUT TIME WILL SHOW THEM WHO IS RIGHT & WHO IS TALKING DRIVEL


  69. @ Brother Hants

    Did you read that story too?

    Now here is a test question for you.

    What is a former AG doing in barbados examining a 9 year building?

    I dun with that …


  70. Senator Cas- I know nothing of the goodly lady and i trust your judgment with regards to her personal persona but my comments were not directed to her personally but the entire makeup of what has been selected as the DLP’s political top brass.At political level Ms Depeiza has been a failure so far and her certain of her actions and pronouncements have been far from enlightening but as i did say “History might prove me wrong.


  71. “What is a former AG doing in barbados examining a 9 year building?”

    And from all reports a tainted one as well. It was disgraceful not to name that complex after Lloyd ‘Boychild’ Smith who made a sterling contribution to that parish as their representative for a number of years.
