    I know Comrade Prescod, I honestly agree with you. Let’s wait and see. Comrade Glenroy Straughn and I had similar battles trying to defend beach vendors almost thirty years ago.
    We need to put a stop to this nonsense immediately.

  • “Prescod is not known to suffer this kind of thing gladly.” Who the eff cares? Wuh he going do? Tek the Israel Lovell drummers down there and beat de bongos till the Jones run away screaming?!

    @PLT, I am quite poor and powerless. Am I not on BU?! I am tired of being powerless and supporting a losing side! So why not support the rich and powerful even if they would piss on me given a chance at least I am not deluding myself that I matter but hey don’t let me rain on the parade!

    I would bet that not one person who is bothered by this fence has brought it to the attention of the authorities i.e T&CP office or the NCC. It’s easier to moan on Facebook and BU.

    Since I made my tongue-in-cheek post there have been 20 posts, most confirming that we are just full of hot stale air!

    And things did not work out too well for his son Hans Kristian Rausing, the one who when his wife died was too drugged up to make a single simple phone call to the undertaker, and left her body in the house to rot, to become a stinking, rotten mess.

    More money than sense.

    @ Ms. Peggy Green

    I read what you said and i quote

    “…A judge, also not believing, sent him to the Green Gates for psychiatric evaluation and observation – his story was also not believed here. He said he became so scared after no one listened to him that he could not speak…”

    Let the ole man talk to you a second about the phenomenon of the terrorist and the inadvertent radicalization of a clean skin jihadist

    Your response is going to be like many others here “what the badword…” But I have a purpose albeit a dual one, and I will share it with you.

    When Islamic men are incarcerated in the populations of 1st word countries many are beaten and raped.

    Beating is “psychologically acceptable” for any man. We sit and plot revenge. And sometimes get beaten again.

    Raping IS NOT and culturally this is anathema for such individuals and breeds a venomous hatred against the societies these guys find themselves in.

    If an examination is made of these specific examples it will be found that the radicalisation of certain of these persons has taken on a specific profiling to attract the silently venomous…

    That said let me continue.

    That young man is perfect material for radicalization

    He was “raped” by this system and has every right to go to Marl Hole to the nearest “***”, engage the services of Smith & Wesson as his attorneys and Judge and exact a poor man’s justice.

    THEY know who then can do that to.

    IF THAT HAD BEEN THIS OLE MAN I WOULD NOT BE HERE WRITING THIS DRIVEL BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE *** THE HOMEOWNER WHO CALLED THE POLICE AND THE ZEALOUS JUDGE.

    IF YOU TAKE WHAT IS MINE, LIKE THE JIHADIST YOU CAN BET I WILL TAKE WHAT IS YOURS.

    And if you doubt me just ask Mariposa and she will tell you that de ole man ent lie.

    So there we have it.

    A word to the wise is sufficient.

    I got the grandson to create a Facebook account so de ole man got de grandson composing a 60 minutes video for the Ermine Atwell family members.

    It will take some time BUT …once it is finished…they can start to publicize the affair with a different more ammmmmm emotive video

    No. I do not believe the BLP or DLP governments are ever on the side of the people. They see protests as being a nuisance. They are on the side of the dollar.

    @ Mr. Hal Austin

    Hal, you may recall riding in a Rocklyn Bus with the conductor spanning the back wheel to take the fares of passengers in the 3 back rows (two of which faced each other)

    Both the driver and the passengers were disposed to tell an conductor to come in their row when the bus was approaching a narrow walled area AND HE WOULD LISTEN!

    These politicians remind me of the newer ZR rabble who when you tell the conductor that he is dangling dangerously from the overpacked ZM in the starwell, HE BUSES YOU YUH FADDAH AND YOUR MUDDAH badword as is recorded gy Dr Duguid in the house of assembly not too long ago.

    Small minded men and women DO NOT UNDERSTAND CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.

    Have you ever attended a town hall consultation in Barbados?

    From the time you take the microphone you are seen as the enemy!!!

    And while you say that “protests are a nuisance” de ole man would say that “merely opening your mouth is seen as dissent AND FOR THAT YOU ARE TARGETTED”

    You try it, and you will see that UNLESS YOU HAVE A GOLD SPOON IN YOUR MOUTH, you are heckled by the planted supporters of the administration that is represented on the podium AND THE CHAIRMEN (Mao) always smile and conveniently do not call anyone to order during the exchange

  • @Hants the best way to delineate beach front property is to use Gabby’s suggestion: the first grain of sand belong to Barbados and Bajans. End of story. Everything will be clear after that.

    @ Brother Hants

    you asked the question and I quote “…Why don’t you suggest a better way to delineate beach front property than using a ” High water mark ” ?…”

    I learnt this about 40 nuff years ago during a class introducing the Systeme Internationale.

    “… In ancient times, the body ruled when it came to measuring. The length of a foot, the width of a finger, and the distance of a step were all accepted measurements.

    Inch: At first an inch was the width of a man’s thumb. In the 14th century, King Edward II of England ruled that 1 inch equalled 3 grains of barley placed end to end lengthwise…”

    With each change of the king the measuement of the day changed so the small hands Donald Trunk would have similar challenges regarding the amount of land he could claim as King.

    Now armed with that detail you would be right to ask what de badword de ole man is talking about?

    But bear with me my brother i getting there

    De old man would change the rules of the town and country planning for the entire island

    I would create a “SWATHE” a virtual band that would allocate the measurement of the widest beach in barbados TO ALL BEACH FRON PROPERTY and then deed the virtual usage of the part of existing structures in the SWATHE to owners at 2018 ON A TEMPORARY BASIS.

    IF such SWATHE IS 50 feet wide from the hightide then whatever property that you have between 50 foot and the sea IS TEMPORARILY ALLOCATED TO YOU and your heirs for a long as I the owner of Crown Lands so deem fit.

    As to that finger thingy and its connection

    I would go to the centre of the road that is closest to the coast in any area of barbados and let beach owners take out their “appendages” if male, or reveal them IF FEMALE and determine the amount of land that is theirs by virtue of the distance that they are able to project their urine while being observed by other bajans on TV streamed by Mr Charles Jong regionally.

    You think that would solve the problem heheheheheh cause fellers like Pain and Teets would not want all Barbados to see their “shortcomings” heheheheheheh and as we get older you dun know that we cant even pee one foot away from our bodies heheheheheheh

It made for good pre- election fodder to come down on the side of the “poor” vendors in opposition to a maguffy like Doyle. How dare he come down to Bim and take advantage of us natives even as he is pouring his money into the country. There were three blogs on this issue and many of the people have largely disappeared, does anyone remember the criticism leveled at the last Gov’t about this issue?
