Sir Charles Williams

I followed this matter in the print media of the Sunday Sun last week and have since heard of a banter on the radio program “Brasstacks” between Sir. Charles Williams and Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite regarding this issue! At this juncture I wish to state very clearly that I have been privy to three occasions prior to the elections where I have personally engaged Sir Charles on this subject on behalf of Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite with both gentlemen present.

In my opinion, Sir. Charles had exhausted every avenue to have the gifted lands approved by the Town and Country Planning Department from inception. From our initial meeting, Sir Charles profusely apologized to Ambassador. Ryan Brathwaite for the protracted delays experienced over the past 9 years citing the then Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart as being the hindrance to the handing over of the lands with the relevant approvals.

In his usual candour Sir Charles gave us a dossier of a multiplicity of correspondence to the Town and Country Planning Department and the Ministry of Agriculture to outline the arduous process and the status to date. This was followed up by an introduction to Sir Charles’  Physical Planners who in return forwarded every iota to both Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite and myself spanning the 9 year period.

It was upon confirmation of receipt of the documentation that Sir Charles gave me full authority to pursue the completion of this matter citing the possibility of my placing some political pressure on the government to do right by Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite. Both gentlemen were extremely frustrated for obvious reasons as Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite wanted to acquire the lands and Sir Charles wanted desperately to deed the gift offered with the relevant permissions.

When asked why Sir  Charles did not alternately choose to offer up a parcel at Apes Hill, the initial reason for the location of the agreed and substantive parcel was that of the locale in relation to the village (Hillaby) where the Ambassador grew up. This was all cited by Sir Charles in the media of recent.

As I came to be acutely aware that Sir Charles had indeed exhausted all channels to acquire the relevant Permissions; I instructed the Ambassador not to engage the media on the matter in the presence of Sir. Charles in the hopes that we could have approached the Hon. Fruendel Stuart in order to have the file reviewed with every expectancy that it would be favourably granted the permissions sought.

To my dismay some two (2) weeks later there was an article in the electronic media where Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite allegedly spoke at length with the press regarding the issues. This was against our mutual agreement in the presence of Sir. Charles and my subsequent admonishment not to go to the public domain with what was at present a very sensitive issue. When Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite was confronted on the matter, his response was that he received a telephone call from that specific media house to query the progress to date on the approvals.

My verification with the media house concluded that Ambassador Brathwaite reached out to them to give the story even against our admonishment and his agreement not to do so in order that we could engage the Prime Minister. By this time I became aware that Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite out of total frustration was becoming devoid of reasoning.

I contacted Sir Charles to apologize for the matter having reached the media which was contrary to our last agreement and understanding. Sir Charles was quite gracious and we then agreed to proceed as planned to have an audience with Prime Minister Stuart.

Once more to my shock and dismay during a conversation with Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite it was revealed to me that he had high hopes of selling the land in order to pursue funding for the preparation process leading up to the World Games qualifiers and the 2020 Olympics.

At that juncture I grew very concerned that an athlete of this calibre was not being subsidized by the Ministry of Sports. I immediately tried to reach out to the then Minister the Hon. Stephen Lashley who refused to accept calls from both Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite and myself. I was later informed that the minister did respond to the Ambassador through a subordinate and gave assurances that he would also have the planning approvals garnered through the Hon. Fruendel Stuart, Prime Minister.

This matter has indeed been a political football that has been kicked off field for reasons only known to the Democratic Labour Party Administration which up until election time has never addressed the issuance of permissions for the subdivision.

It is my hope that this will vindicate Sir. Charles and also engage the attention of the Hon. Mia Mottley Q.C, M.P, Prime Minister where a positive outcome will be concluded.
Let us be true Patriots and reward our Citizens who Excel beyond expectation.

  • This scenario definitely fits in to the well known saying “beware of Greeks/Jews who come bearing gifts”
    The land in question was definitely not a gift.
    Since Ryan now needs money, he should press for the value of the land.

  • Williams is a major land owner is he not? Why not give Brathwaite another piece of land, or cash equivalent to the value of the land? Sometimes we give not because we are compelled to, but we give just because we can. I don’t have land (to speak of nor money (to speak of, yes I can buy food and pay my utilities). But I have healthy blood, and over the past 26 years I have given that, 72 times in all, even though I am under no obligation to do so. I freely give of what i have just because I can. And when I give I have never said, nor will I ever say, that my blood is not for rich, old, white men, nor for poor, black, young women. I don’t seek to exclude anybody. My blood is good for black and white, Christian, Rastafarian, Muslim, Jew and non believer. For men, for women, for children, for the newborn and for the dying.

    Sometimes we need to give just because we can.

    “To give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wound, to labour and not to ask for any reward, save that of knowing that we do God’s will.”

    I would encourage Williams to do similarly.

  • Cow is an old fraud who should never be allowed anywhere near taxpayer’s contracts ever again, should not be allowed anywhere near the NIS Pension Fund belonging to the elderly retirees ever again..

    Cow should be forced by government to pay back every dime of the hundreds of millions of dollars he robbed the pension fund over the years and if he refuses, because he never believes he should be made to pay back black people’s money…lock his thieving ass up for fraud..

    Both governments have colluded with and enabled him and his fellow thieves to rape the country and rip of the majority population because he believes he is entitled to….the Mia government has to put an end to that or suffer the consequences.

    These two governments are despicable to allow this to happen to their own people, then the last government had the nerve to play this game in the Ryan land matter fir 9 whole years while allowing Cow to literally steal from the elderly, what a real nasty bunch.

  • You talking about land fraud is right where the discussion should be, all the land thieves need to be arrested, but what about those lawyers from the last governmentweho boldfacedly ripped off state agencies over 1/4 million dollars in consulting fees, funded by taxpayers while these thieving lawyers sat in parliament as speaker of the house and some even took bribes from the same known land thieves, what about those.

    Hopefully Marshall will put his money where his mouth is and lock up these former ministers and others as well….as soon as possible…none of them can run off island because am sure the feds are watching flights…lol…lock them up.

    “Toppin, the current minister holding responsibility for BIDC in the new government revealed in parliament Tuesday that Carrington, an attorney and ex-speaker of that law-making body, had charged BIDC $353,225 for consultation on sale of a property valued at $16 million.

    But Toppin said that the established rate for legal fees on a transaction of this value is $161,250, and hinted that the state-owned company was pressured into making the abnormally high payment to a then member of parliament who was part of the government of the time.

    This information of an official of a government over-charging a state agency which it was elected to protect comes against the backdrop of a recent Barbados government document stating that BIDC, which was established to increase exports and employment through investment, has an outstanding debt of $19 million and accumulated arrears of $10.7 million.

    The state corporation has had $$5.315 million approved in funding for the 2018-19 budget year.

    News of the corruption charge against a minister in a former Barbados government and the apparent fleecing of this state entity comes weeks after attorney general of the new administration, Dale Marshall, warned of an intention to pursue and prosecute public officials suspected of corruption as far up the ladder as former government ministers.”

  • I have a copy of the fees list for Barbados attorneys somewhere about and I know that lawyers are not supposed to charge above the established rates particularly for non contentious matters….particularly sitting MPs who believe they are entitled to be bandits and rip off the state agencies funded by the taxpayers they are supposed to protect.

    Marshall should have moved on this already and made a complaint to the Commissioner of Police about this particular ripoff of BIDC..while he is at it he should also start an investigation into just how much money Cow ripped off from the pension fund, how many ministers were involved and start putting pressure to have the money repaid or supoenas prepared to lock up the thieves.

    ..I remember Donville gushing about all this money they gave Cow….not their money, pensioners money.

    @ Neil Holder Leader of the Barbados Integrity Movement

    This matter involving Sir Cow Williams and Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite is pure idiocy.

    And de ole man will explain this idiocy using your own quote.

    “…In my opinion, Sir. Charles had exhausted every avenue to have the gifted lands approved by the Town and Country Planning Department from inception…”

    Even if Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite is an ass and insisted of accepting the gifted lands and Trojan Horse in Timbuktu From the canny Sir Charles, if Sir Charles was serious about gifting the young man lands that he could live on IN TRUTH AND IN FACT an honest knight and giver would have said to the donee “(idiot) if you take these lands next to your home YOU CANNOT BUILD A HOUSE BECAUSE THIS IS AGRICULTURAL LAND”

    It becomes obvious that the recipient was naive and that Sir Charles was deceitful given that his ulterior motive was to coerce Town and Country Planning into a change of use scheme WHICH THEY WOUKD HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO GO BACK ON if they had followed his and your coercion.

    I can understand Ambassador Brathwaites dilemma but please…to ascribe his abklity to raise funding for his continued Olympic interests is to say that he was unable to vreate a GoFund Me website and seek alternative solicitations for 9 years.

    You are sucking up to COW who is a real estate developer who would have been aufait WIGH the restrictions of the gift to Ryan and should have advised him thusly.

    Fumbles is a chvunt of unmatched proportions but in this single regard he made te right choice.

    You are trying to emote support for what is a faulty principle of converting arable land into development areas on the whim of Lady Hoagies husband

    That Mr Holder is unconscionable

    You guys have yet to understand the battles that you need to engage in and the Waste foop endeavours.

    …..it’s not like the black governments care…just remember some years ago when the private sector and government ministers and the opposition joined forces to shut the blogs down because Cow said there should be no internet in Barbados…well that was the fight we had back then…they went to the ends of the earth and back to keep black bajans as unaware dummies just good for being robbed and kept mentally enslaved, but the people still managed to break free and take down a whole government…wiped them off the political landscape….their actions against the population are returning to haunt them…and it has not even fully started yet.

    What is Ryan Brathwaite doing confiding in him as a go between Cow and himself. You trust COW at your peril. COW, Bizzy and the ostensibly non black cabal perfected the art of targeting the treasury of Barbados. Foreign investment is an after thought . The massive deals with government over the years have made the white elite super rich. At the same time consolidating the commanding heights of the economy and landownership in the hands of COW and his mates.

    There were rumors of Brathwaite falling afoul of his international sports sponsors who allegedly were unhappy with his progress. It is disturbing how fast he fell from world champion to an also ran. He’s still a great sports hero although his light went out too quickly. Cow is Cow. Words to describe Holder would violate the etiquette of the blog. The man and his alleged political party are the stuff of comedy. Brathwaite should seek alternative counsel.

    The salient part of my comment was not about Olympic/World Championship medallists you jackass. It was the principle of using the planning system i.e. the grant of approval to extract public benefits. I said athletes because RB is one but it could apply to other areas where a Barbadian excels–a Grammy/Emmy, Miss Universe/World, a patent etc. Nevertheless, the fact that we don’t win anything regularly does not mean that it wouldn’t happen; therefore, asking Cow to set aside some of the lots is being strategic. The land would not ‘spile’ but in the event someone wins something on the world stage, instead of scrambling, the whole of Bim would know a plot of land is available–“Winners Avenue”. While we await a winner, the lots would be open spaces in the area kept clean by Cow. Empty lots in Bdos is not new. Instead of talking shiite use your best friend Google and you’ll see that in jurisdictions where similar legal obligations or conditions are used, developers are required to contribute millions toward public infrastructure, job training, schools etc. They deliver them directly or pay the equivalent in cash. The act governing town planning is discretionary in nature and in many instances public benefits can be used to tip the scale in favour of approval. The same principle Cow is adopting in this instance–approve because our World Champion would benefit. I repeat, allow Cow to subdivide but attach obligation/condition. You too should stick to what you know–conspiracy theories.

    PS: I am an expert and before May 24. Rest me!

    There is enough land in the land bank for government to set up a “Winners Ave” ..for their people…why is an old land thief the one chosen to provide this when all the land sits in a land bank controlled by government.

    A gold medal means a lot to an individual but all you will get in Barbados is a smile and a well done. It will not get you a job like cricket did in the old days.

    Sometimes you have to know when “to fold and walk away…”

    9 years At 30 while a belly searcher is not an insurmountable obstacle

    @ Ryan Brathwaite

    Let de ole man suggest this.

    Create a Non Governmental Organisation called

    ” Outside the Winner’s Circle” with the tag line “the ultimate support mechanism for aspiring athletes.”

    Have as your landing page your story showing why you created the site.

    To assist the “almost there” athletes. The girls and guys like you; with talent and no money.

    Reach out to Rihanna for funding.

    Make the site into a virtual avenue for other athletes Ryan.

    There’s a lot of things you can do with this site young man.

    Avoid the rabble trousers like Neil who wishes to make this a political football.

    Go to COW and ask him to fund it. He is not a bad man as many of us here would like to point him out to be BUT as a minority one can understand these natural defences

    I would get de grandson to help you with the concept Ryan.

    In fact Ryan de ole man will go a bit further and give you the contact information for a feller who would give you a patentable idea pun dis seeming hurdle Ryan something that would permit you to generate real money

    And would make the name Ryan Brathwaite a world legend in a valley yet unfound

    The problem with these so called leaders, both the political ones and Chaiman Mia Mao ZeJong ‘s own, is that they CANNOT THINK.

    Like COW and Enuff of Lorenzo duo they are tied to the physical land and like Mia CANNOT SEE THE FUTURE AND THE OPPORTUNITIES.

    Some of us get that.

    And it’s a sad realization when you be a thoroughbred in a jackass race.

    Give it some thought and then if it makes sense reach out to de ole man for that referral

    OR NOT, cause OLE MAN notes that when the offers come wunna does mysteriously disappear heheheheh.

  • I figured out some years ago that the self inflicted infestation and mental disease running through the legal fraternity, the judiciary and in the political landscape, the parliament …STILL ARE….they are keeping this destructive practice in play that if the black population needs ANYTHING…and mind you what they need already belongs to them…the wicked system set up by the aforementioned pushes and forces the people to either have to go through the evil minded low rent lawyers, the politicians or the low class thieving minorities on the island or the population cannot get anything done OR move forward, but now it has reached such a state of stagnation from that nonproductive practice that the island has completely STOPPED moving period…

    Look at yasvelves the same way others have observed you and figured it out…figured out what your self inflicted problems are…gosh.

    I repeat it is the principle so therefore it could be applied to other cases. I am not familiar with all the details of this case, but from what I gather from Cow’s comments on VoB he OWNS the land and appears to be looking at LOTS, he even mentioned providing some for staff.

    And in the usual autocratic style of Chairman Mia Mao ZeJong supporters Enuff of Lorenzo duo comes to BU and says to us “lesser minds” cause we are not from the House of Assembly ilk “I have the solution, it is called planning obligations, Google it”

    You see the problem de ole man gots withese mightier than thou Chairman Mia Mao ZeJong supporters?

    The disdain they have for their fellow countrymen

    Here she is on the internet refusing to share the details of the concept with us, like her boss refused to share the details of Jong’s terms of reference.

    But she wants us to ammmm believe that she is discussing the matter with us sheeple as an equal.

    I am not bothered by the illiterati. We have been subdividing/changing use of agri land for eons–it is not new. Furthermore, the rigid approach to land use is obsolescent but that’s another discussion. However, with some progressive policy (not ignoring the need to keep certain lands in agri use), we could extract substantial public benefits from such approvals by embedding a more robust and transformative planning gain framework into the planning process. Mind you the damn opportunity already exists in the law but has not been used. Instead we have a know-it-all, who admits she does not know what is a RH planning obligation, talking shite. The other Oracle, a pseudo-specialist in malware, twists, turns and changes the argument when he’s been
    evaginated. He is so comatosed, that he interprets my recommendation as being focused on the “physical”, when in fact it is multi-faceted: fairness, equity, transparency, social and economic development and recognition and rewarding of our people who excel against the best in the world in a dignified manner. As we speak, I know someone who is involved in a scheme in the UK and their company must provide a medical clinic and a school as part of their development as an obligation to get planning approval. In Bdos meanwhile we are struggling to synthesise the concept of Cow being obligated to contribute a few lots to the public good. I’ll let the brayers continue to bray.

  • what Bim needs to do is develop a land sale law whereby land that is now in foreign ownership can be sold from foreigner to foreigner but other lands and that coming back into Bim ownership must be leased. leases could be 99 years. this would ensure that we do not find ourselves as tenants in our own country. if we want to copy and paste an appropriate law we can look at Fiji or most recently NZealand. land price is now around 15$ a sf, and that is for the cheapest. who in Bim can afford that and then have to build a house. ridiculous.

    but we need foreign exchange so i dont it will happen.

    You are aware this is a discussion that took placed in the Arthur administration when Dame Billie was the foreign minister when alien land holding legislation was touted.

    Bushie is so disappointed to discover that you have the same damn mendicant, albino-centric attitude that guided the DLP parasites to genuflect and kowtow to COW, baloney, jerkham, bizzy and the other symbols of the old plantocracy over the past 10 years.

    Imagine the Barbados GOVERNMENT sniffing behind a cow’s ass for incentives for our WORLD CLASS athletic champions..
    Why is the Sports Council there?
    What does the Arts & Sports Fund do?
    Who audits the BOA?

    Bushie was hopeful that you had learnt enuff on BU to understand the need for SELF RESPECT to drive national policy.
    Instead, wunna are off and running along the IDENTICAL course that Stinkliar and Froon just recently disgraced.

    Just hearing of the deal with Coverley and baloney alone turns Bushie’s stomach…
    Small ‘deals’ with the Devil ONLY EVER lead to total capitulation…

    How soon will the Hyatt commence – now that you and YOUR ilk are set to benefit from the crumbs?
    Is the deathtrap at Coverley now acceptable – since your party became the new baloney poppet?
    How about the cement bond at the Flour Mill? has that now passed the shiite test…?
    Is the BWA building scam now sanctified…?

    Steupsss… There is NO HOPE for our asses.

    Everything in Barbados seems to mimic the sewerage plant….

    Why the hell in this day and age should young, talented athletes be exposed to the albino-centric whims and fancies of the parasites of society?
    Why would a talent like RB not have been SIGNED-UP into a program that would guide, nurture and PROTECT his future career and LIFE – once his immense talents were discovered?
    Why would such a contract not have ENSURED that all ‘gifts’ and incentives ( and THREATS) intended for him be channelled through a foundation managed by sports professionals along with his managers /parents ?

    Every time a little talent shows its head these parasites jump out of the woodwork looking to jump on board…. and rather than come with a NEW approach guided by SELF RESPEC, enuff keeps talking about “what has been done this way for decades….”
    No wonder mendicancy is rampant….

  • Bushie would prefer that JUSTICE be seen to be done.
    What is the arrangement that sees ownership of this piece of the country being structured as it is?

    Why is this arrangement accepted as a fait accompli? What has taxpayers contributed to it? What do taxpayers now own /benefit from it?

    Perhaps the Coverley plant should be even expanded, but it should be done in a way that ensures that TAXPAYERS are treated fairly.

    You know the answer to your question. It was touched on by others on this very blog. Where in the pecking order do we position sports and culture related activities as a people? Which government will reallocate resources from health, education, agriculture and the traditional sectors to drive a relevant youth/sports program?
