Open Letter to Mr. Kerrie Symmonds – The Lack of Representation by MP for St.James Central

Submitted by Alden Blackman

Sir, this is the second time in the past 15 years the BLP is the Government of Barbados and you as a Minister and MP for St. James Central. Yet with the knowledge of and repeated promises, you have failed to obtain a correction to the dangerous situation of an “illegal encroachment” by an Ex-pat White land owner who commissioned the building up/out a garden-cum-an illegal private botched road in a watercourse between Chapel Gap and Clarke’s Road in St.James.  Said road “encroachment” as you have seen and know, obstructs and redirect flood flow from the original course to the Black low working class residential area of Clarke’s Road.

Sir, although the officials of MTW/Drainage Unit, led then, by CTO Frank Thornhill, DCTO Philip Tudor, and other government officials know the encroachment is illegal, and posed a risk, yet, they showed indifference to this dangerous situation by not having it corrected.

Again highlighting what seems to be a lack of representation and or possibly indifference.

  • Barbados needs to have some form of local government.These parochial needs will not readily attract the attention of ministers,although in our system of governance it should.

    Barbados also needs a full week of a national clean-up campaign just like the 3 days of national prayer to some deaf white-man god.

    The white visitors are clearly not impressed with the current state of environmental terrorism perpetrated against a country which was once seen as a rival to Bermuda when it comes to public cleanliness being next to godliness.

    Where is that national clean-up proposed by the previous DLP (deceitful laying party) administration and promised also by the current BLP ( blasted lying party) administration; both of which agreed to put to productive use the NSRL and SSA Contribution to make the now dull Barbados sparkle again as the Caribbean jewel in the Atlantic Ocean?

    Just what we need more local Gov’t mouths sucking on the dry nipples, yuh gotta feel somewhat sorry for Mr. Blackman after all the time he spent ridiculing the former representative (Hutson) and the last Gov’t about his situation, now he finds himself in the same position….. here come meet the new boss, same as de old boss—something happening…..

    Never fear, many hands make light work and we have been reliably informed that the Gov’t has 4 years and 3 months left so someone is bound to come to your aid sooner or later……

    BTW the MP is busy establishing the ferry operation along the West Coast so hold some strain and be patient.

  • Talking Loud Saying Nothing

    Here is the legal definition of tort by Farlex:

    “A wrong that is committed by someone who is legally obligated to provide a certain amount of carefulness in behaviour to another and that causes injury to that person, who may seek compensation in a civil suit for damages.”

    We are fools if we expect our politicians (such as the honourable MR. KERRIE SYMMONDS ) to show empathy towards common working class blacks; and to uphold the law of tort when the harmed party is poor and black-skinned.

    Ultimately we can not rely on our politicians to do the right thing. Too many of them have been compromised over the years to make rational decisions that will benefit the country in a positive way.

    The black population must be cognisant that they are the majority. They alone should start to exercise their power en-mass by questioning and dismantling all such structures which are having a detrimental harmful effect on them and within their community. They must realise that action is the only voice that counts and that talking about the problem will not aid them.

  • Watchman, are you trying to weight the scales in your direction by implying that “…… and Mr. Symmonds failed to obtained a correction to the dangerous situation FROM 2004 TO THIS DAY from MTW/Drainage Unit?”

    I wish that I had the time and desire to debate this matter with you and your Seal Team One, but I would suggest to you that this is not a hill worth dying on. No doubt the BLP and it’s ministers, if they remain true to form, will eventually display normal political and human traits and will make numerous mistakes, fail to listen, become pompous and all the other shortcoming that made them lose the confidence of the people and the government in the past.

    At that time I will join with you and all other Barbadian patriots in soundly condemning them until and unless there is a change in direction. But until such time, the trivial and sometimes insignificant kites that Seal Team One tries to launch compares to the vitriol of a spurned lover. Get over it!

    Just give Mottley and her government time to clean up the sordid mess left behind by the most incompetent gaggle of political bunglers ever to be vested upon this nation and then your trough feeding cohorts will be given the opportunity by the people to LEAD US BACK TO FINANCIAL RUIN as the parasites gorge themselves again on the fatted calf provided by the BLP.

    How do you “dummify” a people?

    We have over the years come to accept the behaviours of these politicians as the norm.

    It is as if as part of our evolution that, much like sports or technology brings out something more noticeable than its former achievements, politics, worldwide, brings with it a devolution embodied in the more corrupt and despotic.

    It is like if politics is the Olympics of the Corrupt and each iteration brings with it Olympians of turpitude much like cricket brings the Laras and football brings the Peles, so too will politics bring the Hitlers and Mottleys.

    And all audiences sit back in awe and admire the turpitude nationally

    So, whereas in Clarke’s Tenantry, we can see the flood waters all these 15 years, AND REMAIN QUIET, cause speaking out about thus injustice is “unduly confrontational”, there are other “flood waters” which equally discommode entire swathes of our population.

    Take for example, the Wiretapping Laws being enacted by Mugabe.

    Almost every bajan, barring Andrew Pilgrim, now is part of a docile audience AND ENT SAYING ONE SHY$E

    Or with the changes to the constitution, every single bajan, other than Caswell Franklyn, is equally dummified by this Constitutional tragedy

    Scant Disrespect

    Let me explain these two words.

    Mr Alden Blackman is perceived by consecutive governments as an insignificant person who, while justifiably aggrieved IS AN UNIMPORTANT VOTER.

    His value is assessed in the leverage he has in his community and that value of his expatriate white neighbour.

    To rectify the problem has a cost.

    Either it will affect the white woman’s clientele and touriseses (if they ask her to take dowN the wall, or they dig down the blocks, AND HER RETAINER WALL FALLS)

    OR

    Affect the voters in Clarke’s Tenantry (which seems inconsequential to the voting box count for these past 15+ years)

    OR

    Continue to flood out Alden at no cost to them other than BU blog articles (or effect a whole rectification of the land in question)

    This is no different to Abijah Holder.

    “A number of issues are being discussed and investigated with respect to your challenges not the least of which is the cost of a solution, because this is not a small matter”
    ***** In your mind, all you need is a bobcat to change the course of the stream, but it is more than that.
    The water cannot go back to its original course on that woman’s property and you don’t want it flooding your property.

    [NB: My FBI team could not decide if “your challenges not the least of which is the cost” means “Mr Blackman cannot put together the cost to GET the solution that he wants. Government or Mr Blackman’s? Was this a mild solicitation?”
    “I am willing to arrange a meeting to discuss the same with you”
    ******* Bring along watchman and the change in your piggy bank and let’s get down to business as we discuss “the challenges not the least of which is the cost of a solution”
    “for which I am not to blame, you can be a little less confrontational”
    *** I am not to blame and you need to suck-up if you want my help.
    “being unduly confrontational about this matter does not help your cause. Frankly, it actually makes it harder for me to get people to work towards resolving your case”
    *** suck-up to me if you want my help. Without you sucking-up, I will not put people on the job.

    Conclusion:
    Mr. Blackman has been warned that he needs to approach this 15-year-old matter with less enthusiasm.
    In addition, he needs to approach the minister on bent knees and plant his lips on the minister’s butt.
    There may be some costs that Mr. Blackman has yet to considered, but the Minister is willing to meet and update him on the challenges and costs.
    We would urge Mr. Blackman to meet but to keep his money in his pocket as he has more years in the wilderness.
    We do not believer that the letter is threatening, but warnings are spread throughout.

  • @ Watchman,

    If you and Mr. Blackman want to get the problem solved you need to get PRIME MINISTER MIA AMOR MOTTLEY involved.

    Get someone you trust to to help draft a letter that would appeal to her sense of fairness.

    ALL ROADS and watercourses lead to the PRIME MINISTER.

    You and the residents of Clarkes road are in danger as evidenced by previous flooding.

  • People who live in glass houses should be wary of stones, thus when the Minister writes about methods of communication I reflected on his outburst of 300 lbs of blubber while on the campaign trail and his more recent gratuitous insult to the former PM again while on the campaign trail. I welcome this new found decorum, long may it last.

    The briber woman from whereever she came from paid her bribe to drown the residents, she is the one to pay to remove the obstruction….but she might be too white for the airhead Symmonds to approach and tell her to pay to remove what she paid to put there, the slaveminded minister might think it will offend her or disrespect her cause government officials are dependant on her bribes.

    Last year, before election Mr Symmonds got lost, trying to find Mr. Blackman house. He called Mr. Blackman land line asking him which gap he live in.On arrival, he had a man with him that is, or was into construction, he did all the talking about how remedial work can be done to the watercourse. Can this be a mild solicitation, or one of his comfort promises. the watercourse need to be restored.

    You said and I quote

    “…Judging from November 29, 2016 flooding, it can happen, on that day the ex-pat white, and guests were high up on her balcony having fun watching the flood passing down Clarke’s Road…”

    It would have been perfect to have taken pictures and videos of these guests and de white woman enjoying your plight.

    De ole man has found that pictures and video AND EMAIL AND SCREEN SHOT FOOTAGE has a way to emote public sentiment and court systems in one’s favour.

    If you get a court dat that is GIVEN THAT THE CURRENT AG IS WIPING ALL CASES OLDER THAN 10 YEARS OFF THE SLATE!!!

  • The need to repeat that back in 2002 the greed of a British Ex-pat white woman who bought a parcel of land from a Black Barbadian and then realized the land ended in the center of a watercourse, with or without knowing the law pertaining to watercourses in Barbados, she commissioned a Black contractor to prepare the spot, the contractor removed the watercourse edges, to get to the site. After the house was nearing completion, said contractor returned, and placed boulders in the watercourse, elevated and backfill to the boundary mark, that process, encroached about 4-5 feet into the natural watercourse, he leaved the site, and did not replaced the edge on the other side.The Black Arthur/contractor knew the law pertaining to watercourses, and what he did was wrong. Of all the officers, Mr. Blackman pleaded to from 2003, at MTW/Drainage Unit, CTO Thornhill, and Deputy CTO Tudor are more despicable than the perpetrator. The CTO, and DCTO told Mr. Blackman the encroachment is illegal, yet it remained

  • Talking Loud,

    I have a very decent friend who works with some of these tourists. Her vocabulary is rather more extensive than the average person and so she puts them in their place without resorting to obscenities. She actually ends up making THEM look uncivilized and shamefaced. But the jet ski operator, I would hazard a guess, does not possess her ability and so he reacted in a way that they could film and use to promote their agenda.

    And speaking of civilized societies – they lied. Scotland is having a hell of a time with violent crime.

  • Mr. Symmonds the BLP MP for St. James Central was asked to help represent Mr. Blackman in obtaining a remedy from MTW /Drainage Unit and failed. When the said Black Arthur/ contractor returned, this time working for BWA, laying pipes, he did a second wrong to Blackman. Arthur placed the pipes in the dig-out part of Blackman’s land in the watercourse, he knew it would happened, because of what he did in 2003. Mr. Symmonds was asked again in 2006 to help find a solution to the dangerous situation and he failed, although his BLP was the Government.

    I am wondering if it happens only in Barbados. Spotty memories

    We have some who can remember only what happens after May 24, 2018. It is almost as if they were on a continuous high during 2005 to 2018 and ncannot remember anything.
    .
    Then we have those who are now in a daze after May 24, 2018, can remember every event from 2005 to 2018, but had memory loss between 2000 to 2005. nI suspect that Mr. Symmonds is in this latter category and does not have a clear recall of events in 2002 and 2003.

    I got this from my cousin TheOGazerts 234. I now suspect that he uses google and may not be in the FBI..
    “Selective memory is the phenomenon by which a person deliberately chooses to remember what he or she wants to remember and chooses to forget the rest. Selective memory does not apply across the board, the way not paying attention does. It is directed at specific events or specific aspects of an event”

    Stay strong brother.
