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

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.

    Barbados is said to be punching above its weight and still having people collecting water in public village tanks in 2019.

    As Barbados continues to punch above its weight in 2019 Teachers are being asked to:

    Even though Government has stuck to its promise that teachers would not be touched, retrenchment in the public service has taken a serious toll on the school system, president of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) Sean Spencer has charged.

    This morning Spencer revealed that since Government opted to send home 34 of the 43 general workers in the primary school system, occupational safety and basic tasks at several schools, are now compromised. As a matter of fact the BUT president told Barbados TODAY that the situation has got to the point where teachers and parents were now cutting grass at some schools to have them ready for the new term.

    “We are left with nine general workers to look after 80-plus schools and it is really a poor situation. I can tell you that at one school, at least one or two teachers and members of the ancillary staff, have been pressed into service. You also have parents cutting grass at some of these schools, which are rural schools and therefore require specialized equipment,” he said.

    General workers are tasked with the responsibility of repairing damaged furniture, moving heavy equipment around the school and assisting with the general maintenance of the compound. With the removal of the majority of them from all primary schools and some secondary, several of the country’s learning institutions are in a deplorable state, the teachers’ advocate charged.

    “We have a state of neglect because we have grass which has been unattended for the past three weeks during the Christmas recess and the school plants are overrun in some cases. This is a situation that we have long lobbied against allowing to happen,” said Spencer, who warned that the current situation did not augur well for the summer maintenance programme.

    The BUT president lamented that even without the challenge of less general workers, the summer maintenance programme was poorly run and he therefore feared things getting worse.

    “It really doesn’t spell well for what is to come in the school’s summer maintenance programme, which the Ministry [of Education] undertakes every year. That has been inadequate where it starts late and some of the work has not been completed while the completed works have been compromised by either inferior material or poor workmanship,” Spencer explained.

    Last month vice-president of the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) and former president of the BUT, Pedro Shepherd first raised the issue. He charged at the time that the retrenchment process under the International Monetary Fund (IMF) approved Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) programme, had resulted in untenable work conditions for teachers across the educational system.

    “The general workers in the educational system also assist the janitorial staff in terms of removing large garbage receptacles. So what we are seeing now are schools with litter thrown all over the place with grass areas now growing out of control,” Shepherd told Barbados TODAY then.

    The former BUT president contended: “Whereas teachers might not be affected upfront, we are seeing that there is some added pressure to the system. This movement of general workers for example now poses the problem of health and safety… We have very large schools, 500-plus students and the work of the general worker is extremely critical.”

    Shepherd also claimed that clerk typists have been sent home from schools as well as the Ministry of Education, resulting in an increased burden on teachers. He explained that these shortcomings were not only visible in schools but also affected the efficiency of the Ministry of Education.

    Recently, Spencer also revealed that government’s decision to send home a number of security guards from schools across the island had compromised the safety of teachers. This concern came into focus earlier this week when teachers at one rural school were forced to flee when an intruder entered a classroom and threatened staff on the premises for a meeting.

    “A number of the staff members, both teaching and non-teaching members of staff [found themselves] having to secure themselves basically to escape what seemed to be some mentally-challenged individual,” Spencer recalled.

    The very people to whom you allude as my tag team would tell you, they hardly comment to any of my comments as I do to theirs. Mariposa will tell you that I clash with her several times on her defence of the crooks now on the opposition side. Donna and Waru will tell you that we hardly converse commentary wise on here. The views expressed are independent of any persuasion or influence, particularly in the case of Donna and Waru. The jury is still out on Mariposa. So you are the one trying to create a red herring that does not exist. The SSS speaks for herself, and in the case of your rogue PM, the SSS knows that she is a far cry from integrity and honesty. Hers has always been the elevation of her personal aggrandisement versus doing what is right, It is for that reason that in spite of how bajans would feel about her knighting her father, she would still do it anyway. What you need to understand, you intellectual clown is that timing in the case of Barbados’ predicament means everything. Her timing so early in her PM role is just wrong and off. Knighting her father smacks with arrogancy and is a slap in the face of those persons now on the bread line, and the many bajans suffering under the pressure of austerity. If timing is everything, she had the best time to implement the much needed legislation to prove that she would not be mekking sport with the financials of the island. When it comes to laws that would keep politicians and business persons in check, the move is far slower than a slug. However, this is not a priority matter on her list of must do. Her father having more status was a major priority and the list of tax evaders, some of whom did not paid taxes because of their close relationship with political figures, was the next.

  • After the previous administration added over $2 billion to the national debt over the last four years, the Mia Mottley led-Government has vowed not borrow any new funds for the remainder of this parliamentary term.
    This assurance comes from Minister in the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Marsha Caddle. This morning Caddle, who was delivering the feature address at the start of the 2019 planning conference for the Barbados Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors at the Hilton Hotel, contended that the net result would mean there would be significantly more unencumbered savings.
    “Over the next four years the Barbados Government will not borrow any new funds. To put the impact of that into context, over the past four years the Government of Barbados has borrowed almost $2 billion. That is $2 billion of new Barbadian savings that were drawn into and trapped by Government debt,” Caddle revealed.
    Revealing that Barbados’ debt had already declined from near 170 per cent of GDP in May last year to 124 per cent this year, Minister Caddle said in bringing the economy to this new place, Government has also settled one of the largest domestic debt restructurings exercises in history.
    However the minister contended that unless Government provides new safe avenues for persons to invest, those excess funds run the risk of sitting idly in banks, as the current rate of interest being offered is close to zero.
    “Where will the $2 billion of new savings go over the next four years? If we do nothing these savings will only compete for existing assets while the banks will be awash with more deposits than they know what to do with. The bank interest rates are going to remain near zero. Government bonds that seem plentiful today will be short supply, while equity markets will see prices skyrocketing,” she explained.
    In painting the picture of the future with zero Government borrowing, Caddle noted that some of those scenarios will be helpful, as it would bring back liquidity to our market, make it easier for those with long-term bonds after the debt restructuring to sell them and revive the local market.
    However the Government economic policy maker made it clear that even with these potential benefits, the exercise would be a waste if at the end, more Barbadians did not achieve economic enfranchisement.
    “If this is all that happens it would be a wasted opportunity. It would merely represent a wealth transfer to those who currently already own those assets. Economic enfranchisement for all Barbadians requires new assets. It requires new financial thinking, institutions and instruments that are well regulated and will tap these savings and mobilise them to invest and develop our economy,” she said.
    This is the way to permanently break out of the recurrent trap of low growth, low levels of domestic investment and low levels of broad-based wealth creation, she added.
    The minister further pointed out that there was more to safe investment than land acquisitions and the time had come for Government to be creative in developing alternative safe avenues.
    “Real economic enfranchisement means, for example, creating safe, financial instruments, with better rates of interest than available in the bank, to allow Barbadians to invest, alongside the public and private sector, in financing this country’s development and to do so within a framework they can trust,” she stressed.(Quote)

    Is this now part of the BERT policy? Or is it more waffle? Her Ms Caddle repeats the prime minister’s claim that debt to GDP has declined in six months from 170 per cent to 124 per cent – a reduction of 46 per cent. At this rate the debt can be reduced to manageable numbers within 18 months. Can she please tell the nation (and Japan Greece, Spain and other nations) how this magical number has been achieved.
    Is she really the minister for investments?

    When you listen to Marsha Caddle,Prodi -girl and Babb from VOB and the Nation newspaper shouting about these 2 upgrades.

    Its a bare joke.

    What they are not telling you is that these 2 upgrades are for local debt which came about because of the shafting of the pensioners and retirees with their investment in government paper – now retirees suffering with very very very small payments as opposed to what they had contracted to receive – and their principal being pushed back to 15 years instead of 5 years.

    The upgrades are not on the foreign debt – which is the more important thing – so clapping yourself on the back for taking harsh measures against the most vulnerable in society – that is ,the elderly – is disgraceful.

    All the while your big fat cabinet and your consultants and political advisors -enjoying a charmed life.

    But it should also still be remembered that this country has stained its spotless record of always paying its debt – by defaulting.

    These 2 upgrades are nothing big to shout about.

    Olivier Blanchard – former Chief Economist of the IMF questioned the idea that reducing elevated levels of public debt should automatically be a priority for govt.

    His thesis is that if the market interest rate at which a govt can borrow is lower than the economy’s expected growth rate,then there is little social cost from the debt because the govt can simply roll over its borrowing when it becomes due – without having to raise taxes – or cut spending – and without risking a dangerous debt spiral.

    Blanchard’s view is the same view which I expressed in this Blog and elsewhere,especially on the domestic component of the National Debt. I also pointed out that GoB debentures held by overseas creditors are simply held to maturity since Barbados had the reputation for not reneging on its obligations. Financial reputation is an intangible asset in the Financial World. It is built on trust and past behaviour. One should never squander it.

    The national debt world wide is three times that of world wide GDP. i.e 300%. Most of it generated by the UK and USA. Check the reports.

    Weaning ‘…Weaning is the process of gradually introducing a infant mammal to what will be its adult diet and withdrawing the supply of its mother’s milk…”

    What is the significance of an upgrade? To be fair concerning Rogue-Works, you have to give up something in order to get something. We have given up a segment of the public sector to austerity, and in return received two upgrades for doing so. Therefore, an upgrade is enough for us to spew with glee that we are punching above our weight again and that is a positive sign for investment purposes I presume. Does the upgrade speak to the crisis debt we are still steep in? I do not want to come on here and criticise Rogue-Works just for criticising purposes. Where credit is due, credit will be given. Where criticism is warranted, criticism will be presented.

Here charged is that she has gathered enough evidence to prove deceit, corruption, and theft is at the forefront of the land dispute involving Six Mens Bay and that political figures are at the stirring wheel of this nuff years in the John Johnny-land fraud court. This is a chance for Rogue-Works to show how serious she intends to be at serving the people and not a special few. Intervene in this matter, Mia Amor Mottley. Poor black people with prime land are getting it taken away from them in the name of legal frauding.

    Indeed you must be jesting!

    Mugabe Mottley will never champion any anti-corruption investigation

    That will mean that she will be making decisions that will affect her friends and the people to who she has to bow down to AND THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN

    You must never forget that Chinua Achebe quotation “…An old woman is always uneasy when dry bones are mentioned in a proverb…” Things Fall Apart

    we have to be wise Dearest SSS and not forget the things that Mugabe would like us to forget…

  • T. Inniss,

    Blanchard has long rejected the Washington Consensus in an about-turn. Quite clearly this has not yet reached the architects of BERT. We have a situation in which the IMF, OECD and leading economists have predicted a slow down of the global economy at best or a deep recession at worst.
    How will this impact on BERT? Why has the public meeting at the UWI to discuss BERT been cancelled? There I a fog of disinformation surrounding this government’s economic policies. We need deep analysis and clarity.

  • All the smoke and mirror promises that Mia made during campaigning has come back to bite the fools in the a.sss
    All the jumpin up and down about transparency legislation has been folded up and thrown into the garbage bin of history
    I really got to laugh that today of all
    all days the blp yardfowls mouths remained close shut and not a peep about the up grades barbados received off the backs of hardworking barbados
    But i must agree with Hal as he stated that if Mia and her economic advisors are so great and successful in bringing down barbados debt they ought to send the formula to Greece
    However all and sundry knows that barbados debt portfolio is a mixed bag of smoke and mirrors and vodoo economics
    However i must applaud govt for saying a freeze would be put on borrowing for the next year
    But i cautioned myself that Mia promises are comforts to fools

    My Sweet Piece

    Mia Amor Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados promised to communicate with the Barbadian people and bring a level of transparency in governance that will separate her from all other Prime Ministers, namely Fruendel the silent clown. She also said that she will make government operations accountable. Therefore, she must be held accountable. We need to see the level of transparency she promised. Yeah right. We done know Rogue-Works will not do one shite. Hear ma na, I want the rogue to publish the names and amounts of money each of the persons who owed the government tax monies. I mean if Rogue-Works can forgive them she should not have any problems publishing names in the name of accountability and transparency. Piece, I know Rogue-Works is not going to do one shite. She likes scoundrels, that is why she has no problem whatsoever keeping controversially accused Payne and Marshall in her line up. As far as she is concerned the accusations against them is false as they have proofs that their operations where legit. Anyhow sweety, I got to try so I am asking Mia Amor Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados, to come to the aid of this elderly woman and her land dispute. The woman has not given anyone permission to squat on her land so Madam Prime Minister, help this elderly woman. LAUNCH AN INVESTIGATION.
