The Mottley Saga – A Promise of Change but More of the Same

Submitted by Sunshine Sunny Shine (SSS)

Posted to Imgur

When the Mottley led BLP were in opposition, startling revelations by them suggested that the then DLP Stuart led government was corrupt, dishonest, and happily kept silent on important matters that should have engaged the public’s interest.

Mottley, agitated by the sequence of disturbing events unfolding under Stuart and his team, fought to have a moral basis established in Barbados politics. She pursued this basis by first tabling a move to have the then speaker of the house, Michael Carrington resign on grounds that his action in a money matter involving an elderly gentleman was unethical and immoral. So incensed was she, that several walking out of parliament became the protest action norm against this obvious condoning of inappropriate conduct.

She furthered her quest for moral politics by bringing the integrity of Freundel Stuart into the spot light. Stuart who wanted persons to believe that he was honest and upright, lied to the Barbadian people when he said he was unaware of the doings in the Cahill deal, when he had signed of on it many months before.

Fast forwarding to the Mia Amor Mottley who is now Prime Minister of Barbados, we are left to wonder what happened to that ethical and moral compass she brought to bear against Stuart and his DLP colleagues. A compass that many felt would be the change that Barbadians long for. Unfortunately, it was short lived.

For starters, there are serious accusations against two of Mottley ministers in the form of Payne and Marshall that have not once been addressed by her. If Carrington’s action was unethical, then any claims concerning inappropriateness by two ministers should have brought her moral compass to bear down on them.

Then there is the matter of her bloated cabinet versus those struggling civil servants sent home as the sacrificial few to keep the whole intact. Why only the bottom and not the top. Certainly this is ground to bring your ethical compass to forefront of things and show Barbadians that you everyone must make sacrifices including the top.

Then there is the tweaking of the constitution to accommodate two friends, but no investigations launch into the financial issues surrounding those of the Democratic Labour Party accused of corruption. Or. no quick move to have legislation put in place to deal with minister corruption, collusion, and wheel and deal.

The SSS has frequently stated that Mottley is a rogue and if she is to believed, otherwise, it certainly cannot be proven when she wants to bestow upon her father a knighthood that is not deserving at this time.

  • Again to be FAIR, many of those Haitians that arrived in Barbados were duped by unscrupulous individuals into believing they were jobs available here.

    Although they were granted the mandatory 6 months stay, those Haitians came here with airline tickets that were valid for three (3) weeks and satisfied immigration they had enough resources to cover their living expenses for that period of time.

    Their plight came about after they did not find employment and their airline tickets expired.

    It should be noted that, in 2008, “scam artists” used posters to advertise jobs were available in Barbados with at pay rate of US$10 per hour and duped several Nigerians and Ghanaians into coming here in search pf those jobs.

    What should be of CONCERN is the EASE with which illegal immigrants have been able to ESCAPE the custody of immigration officers. Over the years, several Africans have escaped custody, many of whom were captured in Bridgetown.

    There was a time that, despite calls from immigration officials to “turn themselves in,” 16 illegal Africans were being housed by Barbadians.

    Do we in Barbados have a law on our books authorizing the confiscation of the proceeds of crime?

    If we do then that surely answers the question – what immediate good would it do for Bajan pockets to pursue the corrupt practices of politicians past.

    I’m just asking and saying.

    As to the pulse of Bajans on this shitehood issue –

    I was round and about taking that pulse yesterday in my usual loquacious way. I met only ONE person who defended it by the specious argument that it was the Queen who did the shiting. Well, if the queen did the shiting Mia gave her the laxative. And it STILL STINKS!.

    Two Saturdays ago a man stoutly defended Mia and thought me unreasonable for holding her to manifesto
    time frames. He disregarded the lies as usual political campaign strategy and urged me to give her the time she has asked for to get the island back in shape. Last Saturday I had to inform him that she had awarded her father a shitehood. His response –

    SILENCE.

    Couldn’t she phone; text; email; whatapp; facebook or carrier pigeon a note to her Ministerial colleague(s) about the legality of the action? Notice one of the supporters of the Gov’t on this blog has said that the Gov’t is improving communication ah wonder if Jong is on vacation.

    This should be a simple matter it is either legal or illegal if it is illegal the Gov’t should remove the obstacle and bill the responsible individual(s) but if “many hands make light work”, “too many cooks spoil the broth” and we are cooking an unpalatable stew.

    As I told David I don’t know where you live and whose pulse you took though I suspect that it was only a few persons of similar mind to you. I can assert that if CADRES was to commission a poll at this moment the vast majority of Bajans (90%) would Express indifference with the knighthood and the other trivial things that you all raise incessantly, with the other 10 evenly spread between agree and disagree.

    A General Comment

    I have neither the time nor the stomach really to respond individually to the comments of WARU, Piece, SSS and Mariposa (T. Inniss is a lightweight in comparison to those 4). So I will let a general comment suffice. Here are few inconsistencies that you all spout regularly

    A. Mia is Mugabe according to you all yet she cozies up to business according to you all.

    B. You criticize the govt for supposedly rushing through some things and supposedly getting them wrong, yet you want her to rush through anti corruption legislation although it seems to matter so much to you all that I would have thought you wanted it done properly. WARU (or Piece, can’t remember) went so far as to proclaim that in light of what happened under the Dems and the campaign promises of the Bees it should be rushed through (obviously then with little thought just knee jerk)

    Those are only two of the most glaring but as I said I haven’t the time.

    To finish up, there is NO evidence that Haitians are overrunning Barbados. Those few folks were part of an unfortunate scam. With any new policy there will be teething problems. With any policy at all there will be cracks for people to fall threw. Vehicular accidents are one of the biggest causes of death internationally but we don’t stop driving. Rather we encourage safety, wearing seatbelts dont drink and drive etc.

    Finally as I told David I am NOT Mia Mottley and I am NOT a member of Cabinet. Neither am I the PRO or the BLP nor do I want to take Charlie’s job as Director of Communications. The point of saying that then is to say that i am not bound to agree with everything Mia, the Labour Party or the Government does. I do believe the anti corruption legislation should be retroactive, I do believe we need FOIA and strengthen the Audiotr Generals power. But I also understand the trepidation of a new govt at doing such things but notwithstanding they are the right things to so and should be done. I pay taxes so I have the right to know from the Auditor General on a regular basis the accurate financial state of the various government departments and SOEs and the same for FOIA and all the others. So I think that if you all feel so strongly about it you should shut up for once and actually do something. I think you all have gotten so carried away with this Mugabe nonsense that you forget we live in a democracy where we have a Select Committee of Parliament that is taking memoranda from the ordinary citizenry. So I encourage you to write them, detailing these thing because you do have a few good ideas. If you’re not satisfied with the response organize yourselves into a movement calling upon govt to act. That is when democracy works at its best not when folks sit around the house complaining about everything. Just as you demand the govt to act it is incumbent upon you as a citizen to act when you feel something isn’t being done to your satisfaction. I suppose though that many of you are too comfortable safely hidden behind your pseudonyms and would never venture to such public action.

    So who are the local facilitators in that “unfortunate scam”?
    Isn’t this a case of blatant illegal people trafficking against which Barbados is a signatory to the UN convention on such immoral and dastardly activity equivalent to a modern-day version of the trans-Atlantic slave trade?

    Why haven’t the local ‘connections’ in the trafficking scam not been dragged before the courts or is it another case of blatantly corrupt hypocrisy similar to the ‘protection’ given those involved in the sex trade of imported ‘foreign’ meat?
    Now where is the ‘mouth’ of the Home Affairs minister?

    BTW, we value your ‘Common Sense’ approach to road safety, tips and all.
    How about adding ‘No Driving’ while under the influence of drugs including the much maligned Mary Jane? Why not put her on the same legalized footing as her commercial rival Mr. Alcohol to create that much talked about in business circles ‘Level Playing Field?

    There is a lot of money to be made from those nouveaux arrivant Ross University students by ‘selling’ some Bajan-grown organic Highlife instead of the forex-leaking imported chemically compressed variety, not so Ms ‘Common Sense’??

    Messaging is important I agree. Thats why Mia doesn’t think there’s a problem with it. Oerhaps because the majority of people dont care as I’ve asserted a few times. I’ll tell you something: walk down Broad Street tomorrow and select the first five persons you see (dont choose them do it purely by chance) and ask them their opinions on the messaging of the knighthood. And dont be one of those smart pollsters who ask questions in order to lead respondents to the answer that you want. Ask them a closed question: do you care about the PM awarding her dad a knighthood. Report back your findings and then if it is as you say I would be willing to cede that the messaging is bad. Please be honest. That’s my challenge. Take it or leave it (including leave the issue alone).

    My responses are few but yet you and the CUNT Lorenzo love the initials SSS. Trust me when I say, you both will have a lot to talk about shortly. I asked you three questions you answered what you believe to be a true response. My interest in all of this is about legislation. Legislation to protect the fragility associated with government finances, and to stop the ease at which local politicians have been able to enrich themselves and their business associates. But, you believe there is no corruption on the BLP side, just the DLP. You believe that such laws need time. Well, how much more so in so time you think they need? They had 14 years of ruling the country, implementing policy after policy, manipulating the constitution according to their whims and fancies and not an iota on the implementation of the prevention of corruption laws. They had ample time to address the old outdated corruption laws that you alluded to. But, no Siree that was never a matter of priority. That is why none of these parties intends to cut off the hands that feed them with legislation that could make them starve. No one on here has to constantly repeat what most Barbadians already know. It is common knowledge that Barbados political system is enablers of corruption. That is why any laws to prevent corruption and penalise wrongdoers never piques the interest of these two parties.

  • “While I am not as resolute as you in terms of devotion to the Labour Party I support the better part of what the Party does……”

    In the Name of Common Sense

    LET’S BE CLEAR. I NEVER MENTIONED I’m a supporter of or DEVOTED to the Barbados Labour Party.

    My questions to the goodly gentleman were hypothetical, because it seems to be of paramount importance to him if he knows whether or not I’m a BLP supporter, which I find disturbing. He has already FORMED that opinion, calls me a “limited range chicken,” then goes on and on and on about it

    The basis of my question were, of WHAT BENEFIT it is to him if I admit to him I’m a BLP supporter?

    When I responded appropriately, he “says” I’m “too thin skinned,” but also states: “Going to leave you be from here on,” which indicates his IMMATURITY.

    There are so many issues we could be discussing in this forum, as you mentioned, “how to fix the transport problem, economic problem, social problem, crime etc,” rather than dedicating precious time trying to find out who supports the BLP or not.

    Anyone reading Mariposa’s contributions, for example, would reasonably assume she is a DLP supporter. But she constantly denies it…….and it’s not a problem.

    It’s ironic I used the term “to be fair” to defend Sinckler as it relates to the Credit Suisse loan, but it did not provoke the ire of anyone.

    The problem with many contributors to this forum is that they sometimes come with one-sided, biased arguments and points that are not entirely true or accurate. When an individual brings “the other side” or present facts, they are quick to label him/her as a BLP or DLP supporter.

    When I’m ready I make my contributions. When I’m attacked, I retaliate.

    All of you need to explain that. Where is the access to justice for the people? The system is a mess and the participants in the system are busy patting themselves on the back and awarding themselves titles.

    Seems to me they did a wonderful service tor themselves and their families.

    How about the A.G. ‘smiley Marshall – he ain’t got nuttin to say now ?

    When he was in opposition and was shadowing that ministry – he could not stop talking and offering nuff advice to the then A.G. Adriel Brathwaite.

    Listen to the excuses that comes out from people like Ellis and Price on VOB – it is no longer a government problem – but it is the fault of Parents,and society ,and the fear of crime rather than the crime itself etc .

  • Artax,

    We who have the people of Barbados as our agenda know that you are not a BLP yard fowl. You are balanced and fair and base your analysis on more facts than most people here do. I rely on your facts and figures to remind me of what I have forgotten and to draw things to my attention that I did not know. You are a treasure trove of information. I have seen you criticise the policies of both Dee and Bee. You may argue hard but I have seen you concede on certain points when an alternative view is posed that seems to make more sense. You do not seek to deny a person even the RIGHT to an opinion. That is quite unlike some people here who have NEVER CONCEDED ON A SINGLE POINT! And that is how one can identify them. The defense team. On EVERY topic. On EVERY point. On EVERY minute detail. One party is right. The other is wrong.

    Now we all know that that there are no two people who think EXACTLY ALIKE IN ALL THINGS. The members of Cabinet we KNOW argue at meetings. But in the public space they all sing from the same hymn sheet. THAT IS THE WAY OF POLITICS IN BARBADOS. A RIDICULOUS CHARADE THAT FOOLS NO-ONE. We all know it but still they play on.

    So….. those who are pursuing a political agenda, putting party ahead of country will present a united front. They purport to agree on EVERYTHING.

    And by this we shall know them.

    It’s quite easy really. That is if your intentions are pure.

    Dear Dame Donna, continue to ‘fool’ thyself!

    “Voted for a servant”, what! Plebs don’t vote for servants; they hire servants to make themselves look important. People vote for leaders; not followers or servants.

    If you are so much against the whole archaically foolish social medallion award system why not argue for republican status for Barbados in 2019 where every man is a Sir and woman a Dame like you?

    Then you would see how stupid Bajans and their politicians would look awarding knighthoods to their friends and family.

    Don’t worry too much my dear, for one day coming very, very soon your wish will be granted; one continuing monarchical way or the other republican ‘knighthood’.

    The problem with our criminal justice system is largely the fallout from a small clique of people who, largely for no good reason, got it in their heads they are the ruling class of Barbados.
    They know, along with the white community, that their offspring will unlikely have to go before the courts, farless go to prison, even when they shoot their children.
    This being so, Dodds is for the working class and lumpen proletariat. But, as I have said, it a cultural thing which flows from Cave Hill.
    Here are some examples of what passes as scholarship at Cave Hill: one so-called political scientist claiming that all forms of capitalism are the same; presumably this is what he teaches his young charges.
    Another so-called political scientist advising the nation to abandon the Westminster model, but what that is she could not say. We have another that claims that the form of government we have in Barbados is a democratic Republic with a foreign Monarch.
    And in today’s Nation another fool, in defence of his call to abandon the 11+ (nobody says what is wrong with it, another Bajan discursive feature), claims that Cyril Burt created the 11+, presumably as part of his racism against and Pakistanis. The 11+ was created in 1944,, and the nation of Pakistan did not come about until years later. How did we select kid to go to Harrison College, Queen’s College, etc before 1944?
    @T. Inniss, we are a nation on the precipice of being wiped out. Only last week we had one of our keyboard warrior talking about culture suggesting that it is biological thing. He was trying to reprimand me, but when asked to be precise he vanished.
    The church too has filed to give moral leadership; just look at the warfare they had over the appointment of a Bishop – and his first promise to his flock was to put the economy right.
    I am still awaiting an objective analysis of BERT; I see the UWI is now going to have a debate about the policy, I hope they stream it.
    Sadly, Barbados is a nation full of self-confidence, a nation which celebrates mediocrity as scholarship; in which punching above its weight is part of this self-delusion. It is all going to end in tears. Let us have a mature debate about BERT.
    Barbados is a failed state.

  • A leader should always be a servant of the people. That simply means that he/she leads the people in the way that will be beneficial to them. That is true service. It does not mean that a leader just follows the foolish dictates of the people. It means that he/she convinces them to follow the way that will be beneficial to them in the long run. A leader gets the people on board. He/she does not leave them behind.

    I am not fooled by this system I know that these people do not see themselves as servants. And as a rebel I am always in favour of doing away with the queen. In the 1950 s my mother was beaten at primary school for not singing “God save the Queen.” My fisherman grandfather went up to the school and threatened violence if they made that mistake again. They did not dare! I dropped out of the guides at age eleven because the pledge stuck in my throat. Do you really think I care about shitehoods?????

    I did not say the poster said culture was biological. I asked if it was since there was an assumption (by me from his definition) that it was. He did not reply. Googling is not an answer, since it cannot explain the context in which the author meant the term. That, for simplicity, is called asking for clarity or precision. I also notice you shift the discussion to a previous one.

    I may have learnt English as a foreign language, but I know when someone is being deceitful.

    This is what you do best. You write generalised nonsense that is always opened to interpretation, so if you’re challenged, you could manipulate the words and twist the argument in your favour and then say people are silly, learn by rote or they don’t understand the English language.
