Prime Minister Mottley’s Father Awarded Knighthood

@Enuff
“Up to now you can’t say why the man is not deserving. In a small country how do you escape proximity to “power/decision-making”?”

Once I see you heading down this road, I know things bad.
No, No, No.
The onus is upon those conferring the honour to highlight the contributions, which are being recognized. Period.
Is Barbados, the country conferring the knighthood, doing so for work in Bermuda, Belize, Caymans, Turks and a little in Barbados too. Or for the leverage used in the BLP leadership battles.
Seems like another Marston Gibson were a Bajan leaves home and spends much of their career working elsewhere, only to return home and be knighted.
To me, if the PM had an ounce of moral decency, she would avoid selecting her father at all costs, especially in the first few opportunities she gets to bestow such an honour. What’s the rush? Is the man ill? – Northern Observer

To be honest the blogmaster does not pay too much attention to the New Year Honours list. The selection appears to be less than transparent and more importantly we are not enthused by a system that awards titles that is anchored to an irrelevant colonial past.

The New Year Honours List for 2019 released by the Government Information Service is as follows [blogmaster’s emphasis]:-

The Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the following awards in the 2019 New Year Honours:

KNIGHT BACHELOR (KtBach)

  • Assad John HALOUTE for services to the hospitality industry and philanthropy

KNIGHT COMMANDER OF THE ORDER OF SAINT MICHAEL AND SAINT GEORGE (KCMG)

  • Elliott Deighton MOTTLEY for services to the legal profession, diplomatic service and the community

ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE

COMMANDER OF THE ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE (CBE)

  • Dr. Frances Louise CHANDLER, OBE for services to agriculture and sustainable development

OFFICER OF THE ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE (OBE)

  • Ms. Cynthia Joan WILLIAMS for services to nursing and the community

MEMBER OF THE ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE (MBE)

  • Reverend Hughson Carlos INNISS for services to youth empowerment and the fight against HIV/AIDS
  • John Wayne Anderson WATTS for services to environmental health

The decision to award Elliott Mottley a knighthood has attracted robust and muscular public comment across the length and breath of Barbados, notwithstanding the din generated by the holiday season. There is no need to be prolix with this matter. A repost of the blogmaster’s too brief comment to Northern Observer is enough.

Agree with this comment, the optics are bad and the brazenness of doing it in the first year of term is a foreboding act.

The opinion of the blogmaster is not meant to ignore Elliott’s Mottley’s contribution in his field of work. However, if the Prime Minister is serious about being a change agent she must avoid decisions that will distract and deepen citizen apathy. The herculean task to turn the country around is bigger than the aggrandisement of any family member. Even if that family member is her father. In fact some will suggest with good reason that the controversial waiver of the tax and penalties (NOT TAX DUE) in the amount of $1,051,872.28 to Elliott Mottley which came out of an audit of Mottley’s accounts is reward enough.

A word to the Prime Minister should be sufficient.

    I used both the Fairchild Street and the Princess Alice bus terminals without difficulty and without long waits. All staff were courteous, and al passengers were a joy to be around. We deservedly cuss the political class, but ordinary Bajans are still the good, decent Christian people we seek. An old woman dropped her 45 in error, a young man picked it up and ran behind her in order to return it. Young men and women rose on the buses without being asked and let their elders sit. Now if only we cold fix the political and business class. 45govt suggested emasculation, but I am not yet ready to cut off the balls of these good young men I encountered today.

Where is the social conscience of the BLP government?
    We have people who are hungry, many of them suffering from malnutrition, yet there is talk about feeding Ross University students in government facilities. Are Bajans collectively mad?
    But, as I have said on a number of occasions, it will all end in tears.

    Where did I mention anything about everybody, or anybody, or nobody going to church on Sundays?

    At what point in Barbados’ history was Barbados’ values rooted in “thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all they heart, with all thy mind, with all thy strength, and thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”

    Barbados was born and grew up in the in the sin of slavery, where people who called themselves Christians, enslaved God’s African children. This continued for hundreds of years. Is that the period referenced by you and by John as Barbados’ Christian period?

    From 1838 to 1938 there was legal freedom, but the exploitation of God;s African children continued, so much so that the people rose in rebellion against their mistreatment. Is that the period referenced by you and by John as Barbados’ Christian period?

    As you never tire of telling us modern Barbados is a failed state. Is is possible for a “a society whose values are rooted in Christianity” to be at the sme time failed state? Would you or John call modern Barbados “a society whose values are rooted in Christianity.”

    Please do not come on the blog and cuss this portion of the electorate. The DLP yardfowls spent years doing that, and how did it work out for them?

    Because one hates the Prime Minister and/or her father [and I’ve never met either of them, so I don’t know enough about either to love them or to hate them. They are both strangers to me] that does not make the person a traitor.

    A traitor is one who betrays the their country, who betrays the state.

    The Prime Minister is not the state.

    The Prime Minister’s father is not the state.

    There is no divine right of Prime Ministership or of Kingship, or of Queenship. We all know this, as does the PM, and her father. The Prime Minister was put there not by God, but by the ordinary electorate, and when the ordinary electorate is ready we will remove her.

    if you wish to defend the PM and her daddy, as you have every right to do, then you must come respectfully and intelligently, and truthfully

    In 2007 I spent half a day at Batts Rock .It was memorable and I saw the ruins of the Bearded Fig Tree Disco ( one of my old hang outs.

    That day there were about fifty Bajans enjoying the beach and the sea.

    Now Bajans have to navigate a path to the sea.

    I give up. The youngsters will have to decide if they want to accept the continuing loss of beach recreation.

    @ in the Name of Common Sense.

    Lest you succeed with you mission and detract us from the goal here is and item regarding the murder of Rebecca Middleton in Bermuda when Sir Mugabe was Attorney General and delivered his stellar services.

    The news item which you as an educated reader and writer reads

    “…The incident is remembered as one of Bermuda’s darkest moments, and led to a drop in tourism due to negative publicity and boycotts by those who believed a gross miscarriage of justice had occurred.

    To this day, Mr Middleton (the father of the murdered woman) believes that the powers that be in Bermuda were more concerned with protecting the island’s reputation than securing justice for his daughter. (DOES THAT INFORMATION BLANKET REMIND YOU OF ANYTHING??? LIKE THIS YOUR ATTEMPT TO HUSH UP THE BLOG ARTICLE???)

    “Just about everything that could go downhill, did go downhill. The Attorney-General (Elliott Mottley) told me he hadn’t lost a case in 10 years and was going to get a conviction, and he ELLIOT MOTTLEY, left town two weeks before the trial.”

    IS THAT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU TO SHOW YOU THE REGIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE BENIGHTED MOTTLEY??

    Ecce Homo behold the man, father of the woman who put up his name for national honours, who in the face of such a heinous murder, gets out of Dodge City, at such a critical point

    Yessiree, for according to you we writers do “viscerally hate de Mottleys for no reason at all” and all this publicly available dereliction of duty and moral turpitude present ample reasons why WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD GIVE MOTTLEY THE KNIHHT & MOTTLEY THE TYRANT OUR UNWAVERING SUPPORT

    It shows to all bajans that Mugabe Mottley DOES NOT GIVE ONE FVCK ABOUT WHAT ANY OF WUNNA THINK

    And this IS THE MOST FRIGHTFUL THJNG!!!

    You are getting side tracked by Peter Harris matters

    Even my Brother Hants tossed in Batts Rock and while it is understood that this is the focal point of the blog @today we have to understand attention span of 10 seconds.

    Keep hitting hard, like T. Inniss is, focus on the optics.

  • @Mariposa,

    The ethical confusion of the prime minister’s father’s knighthood is that two members of her family who deserve recognition are caught up in this general condemnation.
    Ernest Deighton Mottley, former Mayor of Bridgetown, and her paternal grandfather, was one of the most formidable architects of social policy in the post-slavery history of Barbados, who the trivia of party politics, the malice and envy of Errol Barrow and the intellectual weakness of our social historians have combined to reduce to the margins of our political history.
    He it was, not the nonsense of Barrow’s free education, who brought quality secondary education to the children of ordinary working men and women; he it was who fed the hungry through his free Queen’s Park kitchens; he it was who provided clothes and cash to the poverty-stricken.
    Also Elton Elombe Mottley, the prime minister’s uncle, is the most outstanding cultural historian and analyst of his generation and it is a blatant disgrace this economy-obsessed government has not found a place for as a consultant in the NCF – which he more than deserves.
    All this is overshadowed by an ethically bad decision to award her father a knighthood. When added to her choice of consultants and senators, it says a lot about the prime minister’s moral moorings.

    I voted in the hope that the expected 30-0 drubbing would send a message to Mia and Co. that a similar fate of ignominy would befall them if they didn’t repent and change course.

    Alas it appears to have sent a message to them. But the WRONG ONE! She has taken it as carte blanche to do whatsoever she pleases and slap us in the face with a KNIGHT’S GAUNTLET!

  • I doubt very much that this knighthood was about Sir Elliott who looked pretty frail the last time I saw him (on TV). Perhaps it is about Lady Amor, because after all Barbados has NEVER honoured any of its women who like Amor, who like my mother, and probably yours too, have essentially spent most of their lives being excellent wives and mothers.

    In Barbados no political party, NONE acts as thought it believes that being an excellent wife, and being an excellent mother is important work. Work which has tremendous social and economic value.

    I mean looka, we have set up statues everywhere to MEN, especially to political men, but do any of us even know the names of the MOTHERS who raised these eminent men?

    For example look at the Wikipedia entry for Frank Walcott “Frank Walcott was born in Saint Peter, and his policeman father died when Walcott was very young.” From this we don’t even know if this eminent man was even born of a woman. Yet since his father died when he was very young, his MOTHER very likely raised them. How come then she is treated as a nonentity? A person unworthy of even being NAMED?

    So if this award it to the eventually widowed Lady Amor [women typically outlive their husbands] for her contribution to raising our Prime Minister I have no problem with it.

    Raising a prime Minister must be a pretty difficult job. I haven’t managed to raise one yet, although I am still working on it.

    But on the whole we Bajans [heck, the rest of the world too] must do more to honour the excellent work that MOTHERS do.

    MOTHERS don’t only give birth, a little thing which typically takes only a few hours. MOTHERS reproduce the society.

    Like

  • @ Simple Simo,

    The rest of the world? Evidence. In the UK we have organisations such as Wages for Housework, in which a Barbadian was/is prominent. And the contribution of homemakers is recognised in law. Half the marital assets must go to the wife in a divorce. And, in a now famous divorce case, in cases where the husband is wealthy and makes most of his money post-divorce, he still has to provide for his ex-wife, even if she re-marries. Further, pensions in divorce is a specialism in pensions law.
    Barbados, that democratic Republic with a foreign Monarch, is not the world.

  • Thanks for the confirmation my brother. The confirmation that Sylvan Greenidge and Rovell Morris has been relieved of their jobs at the Grantley Adams International Airport. Their contracts we’re cancelled.

    The only sin committed by these two gentleman, whose work at the Airport has been stellar, is that, in the case of Mr. Greenidge, he deared to resign from the BLP because of the direction it is heading and in the case of Mr. Morris, he is the son of former DLP minister, Mr. Bobby Morris.

    Really now, is this way Barbados wants to take it’s politics? That whenever a government changes political knives are sent out to chop down persons who do not share the incoming government’s political point of view. Maloney enjoyed work under the DLP and now the BLP. Is it only because he is white?

    If this is the BLP’s style then my heart bleeds for Barbados because the country is far too small to engage in that kind of political canabolism.

    I am informed that the common courtesy was not even extended to Mr. Morris to be taken home by the company’s messenger after the keys to the company vehicle he drove was taken from him.

    Who remembered the lot of talk and empty promises made in the Covernant of Hope? The BLP’s promise in their 2018 Manifesto of building a new Barbados.

    What is the real state of affairs at the Airport? We heard that the Airport is being leased to a foreign entity. Now we are seeing efforts to suggest that the government is restructuring this operation that already makes millions of dollars in after tax profits. Thanks to the works of these two gentlemen and their former colleagues.

    A job to continue building an efficient Airport was too good for these two black working class Barbadians but Maloney, COW, Simpson and the rest of the white shadows will continue to reap the economic benefits of this country.

    One recalls the so-called bitter hostility that appeared between mia and Maloney, but that has now quickly become a marriage of convenience.

    Well if Barbadians can’t see where their country is heading then God help them.

    Nevev met him, but have met his brother who worked as a teller at CIBC on Broad Street about 20 years ago. If they share the same parents, and by appearance they do, Maloney is what is called “white Bajan”

    However I don’t know how he defines himself on the census form. I’ve worked as a census taker, but not in his neighbourhood, but in the neighbourhoods where I worked I met both “black” and “white” Bajans who defined themselves as “mixed”
