Follow the Witnesses Trevor Browne!

The following was posted to the Unionists BEWARE! blog on the 8the December 2018.

Caswell Franklyn
A prison officer was caught stealing diesel from the prison. He is now suspended pending his own trial and now he is one of the persons accusing Browne of maliciously endeavouring him away from his duty. Another is a female prison officer who married a former inmate. Her case is pending for years. It is a dismissible offence for a prison officer to associate with former prisoners.

At present, I do not know what the prison authorities have holding over the heads of the other two but I am certain that they did not report this matter of their own free will.

Browne is charged for allegedly inciting prison officers away from their duty. But why is no one being charged for impregnating a Jamaican prisoner. I suppose that the woman, now safely back in Jamaica, would keep quiet while the blackmail money continues to flow.

Wade Gibbons
Wade Gibbons Caswell Franklyn I remember the prison officer ‘lady’ very well….covered that situation years ago when she got impregnated by an inmate, married him on his release from jail, all contrary to the Prison Act, and still kept her job. She is not a credible witness and if the others are cut from the same cloth Browne has nothing to worry about. Apart from being Judases, this must be their way of currying favour from the authorities to remain in the system. And then Bajans have to be subjected to people in suits sitting down around a table in parliament [remove yourself from that bogus gathering, CF] on some select committee talking cnut about corruption in Barbados. Lilliput is alive and well!

Although the blogmaster is pleased to read of Trevor Browne release from prison on $1,000.00 bail the circumstances surrounding his incarceration remains a concern. His matter was adjourned until 18 February. Something smells rotten in Denmark. This is a brief comment is to remind all parties- including the DPP and AG- that Barbados is a nation of laws!

    Any sentient beings would know by now that there are no differences between Ds and Bs and would have already seized their power, by any means necessary. Even Barrow admitted that!

    Not only are you right about ‘the people’ but the elites can reasonably depend on the only response the people know – waiting for five years to pretend that they are important.

    But sometimes – the Haitian Revolution, the French Revolution, the Glorious Revolution (1688) were historically important and exceptional moments – deviations from the norm. Unfortunately, only moments in time!

    We should also have stated that any attempt at real revolution is always associated with a counter-revolution.

    And the counter-revolution almost always wins.

    The Russian Revolution (circa 1917) too had to fight off a counter. A counter-revolution which was militarily supported by the then Great Britain and others. Iran is another example of a successful revolution against both foreign forces and internal counter-revolutionary actors. And they are others as well.

    In American, in France, in Britain and most other places it is the counter-revolutionary or reactionary forces who generally win. If not immediately, by other means.

    I don’t know Nurse but I know a whole lot about Browne. He is a very responsible FAMILY MAN. I would imagine that he carries that type of attitude into his work. He is no anarchist but he does not stand for foolishness. I would put my money on him anytime.

    A few interventions before,I made the observation that we have to be careful in choosing persons for leadership positions. The leadership criteria that are fit for a particular position are not the criteria for selection to other positions. Crisis management is not civil management.

    Take what happened last year. An incompetent immoral DLP brought the country to its knees. The country was ripe for disruption, then elections were called, people voted and in the space of 24 hrs disruption was abated.
    But the truth is nothing changed, all the problems that were the catalysts still remain.

    Why is that?

    It is not that people are docile or submissive, instead people have bought in to the notion that the ballot box is the safest and most civil way to disrupt. This of course is nonsense but people take comfort in it because as Bushman says they are brassbowls and they will always choose what is easiest rather than what is right.

    What we need in Barbados are strong active professional non-partisan organisations who will provide citizens with the facts, details on best practice and recognised global leaders and analyses of our current systems regardless of who is in power.

    When faced with overwhelming facts, examples of good governance and best practice even the most insular of brassbowls will become activists and recognise the fight must continue regardless of elections, leaders must be held accountable from the first day on the job not 7 months in and leaders must have a vision and they must share it, justify it and defend it.

    I disagree.

    The police officers, the prison officers, the fire officers, the customs officers did NOT join the military. if they had wanted to be soldiers they would have joined the Barbados Defence Force. They did not.

    Civil servants. Civil discipline. If you try to impose military discipline on civil servants they will vote with their feet. Barbados thankfully is not a concentration camp. People can leave, and people will leave.

    Next thing we know people like you will be seeking to subject old ladies and gentlemen with canes to full MILITARY DISCIPLINE.

    Nope.

    Just yesterday I was saying that Barbados is still very much a post-slavery society. There are always people like you seeking to compel others, as though you feel like you is some kinda slave master, as though you feel like you own somebody.

    You don’t own anybody. In all likelyhood you can’t even discipline your own self, and seeking to dragoon others.

  • @Gabriel January 3, 2019 7:26 AM “The nonsense that resulted in the burning of Glendairy Prisons facilitated by the stupid actions and comments of one Gordon Matthews must never happen again in Barbados,”

    Glendairy prison burned because the prison was designed to house 300 people, and WE had permitted 1,000 human beings to be housed there. And then we acted surprised that the prisoners rebelled and burned the place to hell down. If you put 1,000 rats or 1,000 dogs in a place designed for 300 they too would rebel. What is truly surprising is that it did not happen before. And note that I am NOT blaming Mia since Glendairy Prison was over crowded long, long before Mia was born. Long before she was even conceived.

    My house was designed for 6 people. If you stuffed 20 people in here and kept the doors locked most of the time, we a loving family would also cut each others throats or burn the blasted place down.

    But I blame all ‘o WE. We by our inaction LET it happen.

    WE are to blame.

    You should ask former Deputy president of the Senate Harold Crichlow if his life was threatened by some goons of the DLP, arising out of a stinging sermon he delivered live on Rediffusion just before the General Election in 1976 and for which act of preaching that sermon the Rev Gordon Mattthews called on Errol Barrow,Prime Minister to revoke the broadcast licence of the same Rediffusion.Gordon Matthews the “honorary white” who was so anointed by the apartheid regime of the Boer regime of South Africa who saw nothing wrong with denying Bajans the right to hear the ills of the society and was allowed into Glendairy under the cloak of religion and encouraged the prisoners to mischief,Then when Mia moved at lightning speed to save Bajans and tourists from marauding prisoners on the streets of Barbados the DLP spread untruths of cost over runs and all kinds of innuendo and lies fed by an inside source dubbed the Quisling.The DLP has always been the vagabond element in politics Barbados from when Tudor told tenants in the government housing districts not to pay rent.The DLP mindset is to commit any act that gives them a political advantage and the devil take the hindmost.

    I know Nurse from the time we were boys at Combermere and we had been friends for a long time. He chose to opt out of our friendship when I, as an industrial relations officer at NUPW, represented a member of staff at Dodds prison, who Nurse had violently abused. He turned on a hatred for me because I was performing my lawful duties.

    On the other hand I met Trevor Browne much later but I can endorse your testimonial.

    For Gabriel’s information, prison officers formed a division in NUPW up to 1982 when they decided to for an association and were tricked by Tom Adams into a legislated entity that took away all their trade union rights. As the law now stands, it is a criminal offence to even attend meetings of CTUSAB.

    When Nurse was appointed, he found a civilian prison and he set about transforming it into his own Glendiary Defence Force. He even recruited ex-soldiers who superseded most of the other officers and of course problems would start, as they did, but prison officers were hamstrung by the 1982 amendments to the law, which they came to believe was unconstitutional.

    In order to settle the question of unconstitutionality, the then Attorney General, Adriel Brathwaite, suggested that the officers should take the matter to court to have the matter settled. When the case was filed, certain persons in the prison, who were convinced of the officers case and who did not want to see their power reduced, started to make life extremely difficult for the officers who approached the court in a representative manner.

    In Browne’s personal case, he was interviewed for the post of Orderly Officer and was placed on a priority list. When his time for appointment came he was superseded despite the provisions of the Public Service Act. He went to court and was vindicated. As a result, the High Court made certain orders that so far the Government has refused to implement.

    Gabriel, how is Browne a villain in these circumstances.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Not necessarily true.
    Gabriel probably don’t know this Browne from the other Browne that the nation mixed up his picture with.
    Bushie also doubts that he knows Nurse – except in passing.
    Gabriel is quite simply a BLP yardfowl.

    When the DLP was doing shiite, Gabriel made outstandingly valid, principled contributions here on BU.
    We all thought that these positions were built on the PRINCIPLE of rightness.
    This change in government now allows us to identify the TRUE basis of his contributions
    – the PRINCIPLE of BLP self-interest.

    Gabriel is not alone.
    Prodigal Son was among other outstandingly principled defenders of what was ‘right’ – when the DLP was doing shiite.

    It is now CLEAR to Bushie that if the DLP had turned out to be a righteous government, then these bloggers would have been cussing and insulting them – like we have seen with some DEFENDERS of the shiitehound party-interests.

    The MOST IMPRESSIVE thing about BU to Bushie has been the UNEXPECTEDLY large number of persons whose PRINCIPLES have transcended that of the political shiitehounds we have been cursed with.
    Caswell stands out for his PUBLIC, high-profile stances….. but Piece, Artax, WARU, Donna, SSS, and so many others here have been able to base their positions on RIGHTEOUS PRINCIPLES, that Bushie is almost tempted to think that we have a chance of survival…

    Most of all of course, Blogmaster David has been a paragon of virtue and principle
    – even when he allows his optimism to cloud reality…

    BU is EASILY the most EDUCATIONAL entity to have impacted Barbados in the last decade,
    HOWEVER, unless these principled persons take a stand to influence NATIONAL policy, we will ALL end up in the plimplers….
