Senator Caswell Franklyn Speaks – Diplomatic Passports for Mummy and Daddy

amor elliott mottley

Photo credit: Barbados Today

The seemingly small gesture of Prime Minister, Mia Mottley, of recommending her father for a knighthood speaks volumes about the way how she intends to govern, or should I say rule, this country. It is another clear clear indication that Miss Mottley is hell bent on establishing the closest thing to royalty in Barbados, with her friends and family as the upper class.

The people of this country should not be surprised by the indecent haste with which the PM procured the appointment for daddy dearest. It would appear that indecent haste is the hallmark of everything associated with this new Mottley administration. The indecent haste of amending the Constitution to secure the appointment of friends to the Senate. The indecent haste of terminating public workers, ostensibly to save money, rather than go after tax defaulters who owe in excess of one billion dollars to the Treasury. And let’s not forget the indecent haste of rushing legislation through parliament to forgive tax defaulters who failed to pay their taxes between 1968 and 2000. They are many others but these are just a few examples of the haste and bad judgment that has characterised this administration so far.

However, I want to concentrate on the recommendation to Her Majesty the Queen, to award the Knight Commander of the Order of St. Michael and St. George (KCMG) to the Prime Minister’s father. It looks bad. Someone close to the PM, maybe the knight himself, should have told her how it looks.

Like many, I am not concerned about the criteria for awarding the knighthood, since over the centuries, the monarch of England have granted such distinctions to a variety of scoundrels for service to the Crown. That is not to say that any of the current recipients of high honour are scoundrels. For example, a pirate, Francis Drake, was knighted for service to the Crown.

To my mind, the appointment has less to do with service to this country and is more about setting up an upper class in this country, with the Prime Minister and her family as the queen and court. From now on Sir Elliot and his wife Lady Mottley have the right to parade around the world with a Barbados Diplomatic passport as long as they live. Again, to my mind, this particular knighthood is more about the perks than the honour itself.

Gimme the vote and watch muh take care of my friends and family to the exclusion of all others.

  • To the contrary David,
    The author’s posit “is not concerned about the criteria”.which eliminates building a foundation that would have given the reading public evidence in support of his opinions and the optics of such opinions.

    Trappings, royalties, perks, diplomatic passports, (merited) contribution, and distinctions are some of the descriptions leveled. These posits are not by a long shot definitive nor criteria established for knighthood yet arguments build without it.

    See, Law is sometime made mockery of as this debate is lacking a definitive criteria to establish any argument for or against Knighthood whether to friend, family or foe…..

    May you can posit such information to the benefit of the public.

  • @nineofnine January 5, 2019 5:43 AM “Which one of you would not honor your parents?”

    I would not bestow a national honour on my parents, siblings, spouse, son or daughter, grandparents, aunt or uncle, or spouses of the same.

    I would honour my immediate relatives with my love, my money, my time, my blood, my kidney, or anything else that is mine.

    And indeed I have done this all the days of my life. It is called love of family, and it is a perfectly ordinary thing to so.

    I also would not grade the 11+ or CXC papers for any of the above either.

    Why do you think that both the Ministry of Education, and the CXC orders those who grade papers to declare if they have an immediate relative taking the exams. Why do you think that doctors are forbidden from looking their immediate relatives?

    People with a diplomatic passport still have to apply to the U.S Embassy for an “A” diplomatic visa. Just as the rest of us have to apply for a B1/B2 visa in order to visit great aunt Gertrude in Brooklyn for her 100th birthday.

    A diplomatic passport does not guarantee the the dip passport holder will receive an “A” visa. The U.S. government maintains ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY over the granting of diplomatic “A” visas.

    Countries can give dip passports to their whole population if they feel like it, but the “A” visa is issued, or NOT issued by the U.S. government.

    There are not many countries in the world that can successfully arm wrestle the U.S. government.

    Do we all think that Barbados is one of those countries which can successfully wrestle the U.S. government to the ground?

  • And just in case wunna think I making it up, here it is straight from the horses mouth:

    https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/other-visa-categories/visas-diplomats.html

    “Diplomats and other foreign government officials traveling to the United States to engage solely in official duties or activities on behalf of their national government MUST obtain A-1 or A-2 visas PRIOR to entering the United States. They cannot travel using visitor visas or under the Visa Waiver Program. With the exception of a Head of State or Government — who qualifies for an A visa regardless of the purpose of travel — your position within your country’s government and your purpose of travel determine whether you need an A-1 or A-2 visa. Immediate family members of diplomats and government officials receive A-1 or A-2 visas, with few exceptions. Personal employees, attendants, or domestic workers for diplomats and government officials (holding a valid A-1 or A-2 visa) may be issued A-3 visas.

    To qualify for an A-1 or A-2 visa, YOU MUST BE TRAVELLING TO THE UNITES STATES ON BEHALF OF YOUR NATIONAL GOVERNMENT TO ENGAGE SOLELY IN OFFICIAL ACTIVITIES FOR THAT GOVERNMENT . The specific duties or services that will be performed must be governmental in character or nature, AS DETERMINED BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE , in accordance with U.S. immigration laws.”

    So my reading of this, and i ain’t no lawyer, not even a peica fireside lawyer, is that under U.S. law only Sandra Mason and Mia Mottley are exempt from these rules.

    Uncle Sam say so.

    If anybody want to arm wrestle Uncle Sam, go ahead, but i int behind you.

    If this holds true, then someone, committee or other body FIRST created a list of nominees and supposedly shortlist it.
    That final list is then submitted to the GG.
    It is at this stage that the PM is involved in confirming/ratifying it.

    Well, the question is, did MAM submitted her list to the selection committee or influenced it at the beginning stage or was it completely unknown to her prior ratifying it. Surely it would have been a surprise, and if so, did MAM seek the counsel of the GG on its brevity or does the GG retains absolute finality with limited input from the PM? …(speculation)

    If you go deeper, those who own and controls business have their “family” controlling most if not all aspects of the organization.

    Why does it extend in the medical fields or that of education?

    Simple, they are NOT “entitled” to any free benefit from the “profession” (A DESIGN OF DEMOCRACY) yet as in education, we find the minority singularity in “top schools” regardless of earned merit.. and again this is not questioned even to the point where the said separatist agenda extends to techniques of curriculum, placements and quality of plants.

    Your comment on January 4th at 7:25 a.m is expected from someone who feels real pain when he perceives that the BLP is under attack. I know that it would have bothered you but for you to suggest that I have stooped to gutter level in this regard suggest that over the years I have given you more credit for common sense than you really deserve. You also recommended that I should suggest persons who are deserving of such honours. Well I hate to disappoint you any further but in the context of an independent Barbados after 52 years, I think that awarding British honours to locals for service to this country is an insult. I would go as far as to suggest that persons, who accept them, have no national pride. But you see this award is merely to qualify daddy dearest and mommy for diplomatic passports.

    Please follow the link below from the Sunday Sun of November 4, 2012 to get an insight into my thinking in respect of British honours.

    You have said this specific thing 3 times AND you are not a man who says anything, ESPECIALLY 3 TIMES, WITHOUT THERE BEING FUEL TO YOUR COMMENTS

    De ole man will revert to some practices from times aforetimes.

    The Homeland Security Presidential Directive 6 informs on two pertinent matters The WatchLists and the no-fly list of the United States.

    Because of the matrix of agencies involved, this HSPD-6 will also extend to the DoJ and, as was the case with Pornville, prove to be the mechanism through which he was apprehended recently.

    a request for the contents of any such list, while it would confirm what you seem to be alluding to, WOULD NOT EXPOSE THAT INFORMATION TO ANY CARIBBEAN BANANA REPUBLIC government.

    because we are not trusted to keep secrets

    Getting information on US citizens on these lists is hard and vetting information on these two Mugabes will be really hard.

    But I want you to bear in mind the recent gift of the US Advanced Passenger Information System to Eddie Hinkson in the Ministry of the Interior heheheheh.

    suffice it to say that the *** is much more proactive today than it was in 2003 and, should any 3rd world player attempt these money laundering and diplomatic pouch drug smuggling actions, with a view to relying on immunity provisions, dem got to think again.

    Barbados is a country without laws and inept court systems and corrupt government agencies and ministers operating above the law.

    However America has grown to understand that there are both religious AND ECONOMIC Terrorists.

    and that both of them can have disastrous affects on American lives.

    Despite so called Regional Security Collaborations with Caricom member states, and the seeming Collaborations with Barbados using APIS, Mia Mugabe has long been elevated to “a threat to the Democratic Archipelago of the Caribbean”

    It is only bajans who stupid like dat but your girl’s game is known

    But that is enough speculation about this new Prime Minister for today.

    while she can do as she likes in Barbados she cannot do as she likes in the U.S. and their government will continue to monitor her despotic actions and wait for any opportunity to clip her wings.

    And those of her family WHOM THEY ARE MONITORING DOING DEM TING.

    BUT WHILE YOU IN THIS “PURPOSELY REPETITIVE MODE”, WOULD YOU CARE TO SHED ANY LIGHT ON THIS TANGENT OF YOUR CONTINUED WRITTEN INTERVENTION?

    Have your customs and immigration people said anything?

  • Why should a knighthood qualify one for a diplomatic passport? Is that not an abuse of the Vienna Convention as such diplomatic status suggests the person is on official duty for the state. If this is true, should it not be raised internationally and regionally, first with Caricom, then with the United Nations?

    It seems as if you have difficulty in maintaining your enemies lists. One blogger already pointed out that you had four categories instead of three. Now you excluded BT and included me.

    I want to know why Grenville Phillip did not make your list? After all, he is the man who has a political party and is looking to take your party’s place in 2023. Do you fear that mentioning him would give him visibility, validity and free publicity?

    Why do you worry about a keyboard warrior like me and let Grenville Phillip get a free pass. Mention him as well.

    I wonder about the division of labor in the Mia’s defense force (MDF)…
    Enuff – talk nuff sh!te and making issues more confusing
    Lorenzo – maintains the enemies lists Gun trains on “piece” and any of his perceived allies
    Artax – slap poor Mariposa around. Nitpick small issues
    The good English nice name fellow – Geez, forgotten already. Send him back in
    Gabriel – I forgot what is his claim to fame
    Crusoe – He is now into blockchain technology. Think he wants to sell mMoney, but this is above his head.
    Watchman – Poor boy, lived on the island all his life and couldn’t find a fisherman friend to help solve his problem.

    Note to Mia…. Mariposa by herself is doing a better job than the full MDF
    Would suggest giving Artax the pick that Enuff has,
    giving Enuff Artax’s pick,
    firing the rest and
    send in a new team.

    I knew that was a lie because Inland Revenue would have filed unpaid tax certificates in the High Court and those books are still there…”

    So for Mugsbe and party to hide away these transgressions they would have to do a “backstory replacement with a

    1.the government printers which they have farmed out to Trevor Prescod

    2.Lose the tax returns for 10 years which 3 senators claim they or their avents had already done. BTW could you confirm the names of these senators? Lucille, Lynette and Jerome? That would be consistent with Mugabe’s inner circle

    3.And as WARU is hinting, disappear the UNPAID YAX CERTIFICATES

    Now you see how de conspiracist (note dat I drop shy$e from my name cause dat shyte ting is reserved to Dr Jerome heheheh) hou see how fe ole man would say dat T. Inniss needs to come here and tek lessons from giants like you?
