Don’t Come Prince Charles – Purging the Monarchy Growing a Republic

prince charles lady camillia

Prince Charles and Camillia

(Barbados Nation) Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will pay an official visit to Barbados on Tuesday, March 19, as part of a Caribbean tour. During the visit, they will participate in several events, including a parade and wreath-laying ceremony at the Cenotaph in National Heroes Square and a reception at which they will be able to interact with a cross-section of Barbadians.

A great deception of the last decade was the promise made by a Stuart led government to move the country to a republic. To quote former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart …”he said he found it awkward in the year 2015 to have to stand up and pledge allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen.

This is one of many examples how members of the political class demonstrate little compunction by making empty promises to a gullible public it swore to serve. A public that tolerates a level of disrespect by not holding them (members of the political class) accountable for their repeated empty mouthings.

If there is one thing that makes the blood of the blogmaster boil, it is the ignorance of so-called educated Barbadians meekly swearing allegiance to the Queen.  Surely it makes a mockery of the idea we are a sovereign country by any definition. As a people how can we inculcate values in our people – especially young minds – to nurture a feeling of patriotism? Isn’t it the feeling of patriotism that must define us?  Why do our parents not feel a level of abhorrence listening to our leaders swear the oath of allegiance to the Queen?

Disgusting!

All people have a history: ours (Black people) is the never ending struggle to overcome a deep psychological scar resulting from the practise of slavery by people from a country we continue to swear an oath of allegiance.  It is the responsibility of  an educated Barbadian class  to purge symbols and messages which are the vestige of a colonial past and serve only to create a conundrum about life for our people.

A story appeared in a section of the British media last week that reinforced a view. Here is a quote from the article:

Racist letters penned in the 1920s by the then Prince of Wales about Aboriginal Australians – calling them ‘revolting’ and comparing them to monkeys – will be explored in a new documentary.

The future King Edward VIII, who was then known as David, expressed his disdain for the Indigenous population during a Royal tour in 1920, when he visited all six Australian states.

His opinions were revealed in letters to his then mistress, married English socialite Freda Dudley Ward. She was the future King’s lover between 1918 to 1923 and they remained close until 1936, when he met American divorcee Wallis Simpson, who he gave up the throne for later that year.

Full article in the Daily Mail –

The most revolting form of living creatures I’ve ever seen’: Edward VIII’s racist letters to his mistress comparing Australian Aboriginal people to ‘monkeys’ are explored in a new documentary

How is it possible for a majority Black nation (Barbados) to continue to swear allegiance to actors of a country which harboured virulent racist sentiment?  There was a time we had to slavishly sing along to rule Britannica. We need to purge all references to the British monarchy to save to our young minds IF we want to grow a proud nation – independent and free.

    Distinction between the monarch and the Crown]
    Whilst the Crown frequently refers to the monarch, it should be noted that where this reference is made in re the monarch (as opposed to the state more generally) this reference is to the monarch in their capacity as monarch, and does not refer to that individual in their totality of ownership interests and actions.

  • David since they have all but avoided Barbados as a Republic let me assist here if I may…

    Without the consent of “We the People”? This is nothing more than a ploy to take the people’s minds off pressing economic matters; it has shifted the debate to a Trojan horse?

    We in Barbados are too small not to be affiliated with larger powers, we have self-rule. All Laws, Treaties and International Agreements are carried out by a Barbadian Legislature.

    What Barbados has to gain from having a Ceremonial Head? First and foremost is a sense of responsibility by the United Kingdom for our security? In a world that is in upheaval is makes sense to stay under the wing that can offer such protection, as we are not living in the Millennium where everyone is good and it is a Paradise. Remember Grenada, if it wasn’t for the Governor General, Granada would be Communist now and we would have a big enemy at the door. Are our memories that short that we have forgotten Guyana which became a Republic under Forbes Burnham who was a Dictator that destroyed his Country?

    “Politics Is The Art Of Making Your Selfish Desires Seem Like National Interest”. Thomas Sowell. Those responsible are playing with the lives of the people present and future generations to come. Is this what “We the People” want and are willing to make this gamble to have the name of a Republic. All power tends to corrupt; and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. Lord Acton. The UK has not yet abandoned its friends.

    We need to learn from History or we are destined to repeat the mistakes of the past. The Root Cause, once you understand this everything else falls into place. Socialists and other statists have been wildly successful at selling government as a kind, caring, and protective parent figure, which provides for the citizens/children in response to their need. Statists have done this by constantly repeating the lie that coercive government’s reason for taking people’s money and running people’s lives is to exercise compassion in one way or another. It never works; it is a slow process of Rot!

    I am concerned that fellow Barbadians can be so gullible. We need to see pass the disguise and the distractions and look to the heart of the matter. Arouse you Faculties and get informed, People are destroyed for lack of knowledge. We Must Become Alerted and Informed. We need to value our Independence and Interdependence or all will soon be lost. There is more power in the people than people in power. Politicians are public servants of the people not the other way around as they would have you believe.

    Barbadian’s have the right to choose not have something this important stuffed down their throats, we need a referendum. The debate of what are the consequences of their choices should happen, but do not leave out what the financial cost of such a change is. Can we afford the price tag as a small country like Barbados? Who benefits? Certainly “Not We the People”!

    For general diversion

    .R v Dudley and Stephens
    November 7, 1884; December 10; 1884

    This was one of the most famous and gruesome cases in English law. Can necessity ever be recognised as a reason for killing someone? The defendants, Thomas Dudley and Edward Stephens, were shipwrecked 1600 miles from the Cape of Good Hope along with another man and a cabin boy, Richard Parker. After 18 days adrift in an open boat, for seven of which they were without food, Dudley and Stephens decided to kill Parker and eat him. The other man refused to take part in the plan but on the 20th day adrift, Dudley and Stephens cut Parker’s throat. They lived off his flesh and blood for another four days before they were picked up by a passing ship. Dudley and Stephens were arrested and tried. The court ruled that the killing Parker was an act of wilful murder; even the extreme situation they found themselves in was no defence. Both were sentenced to death, but there was another twist to the story: out of compassion, their sentences were later commuted to six months.

    In the listings it may be R v Joe Blogs, but the prosecution in outlining its case states it is the Crown prosecuting; prosecutors do not say it is Rex’s case, or Regina’s case; they say it is the Crown’s case……The authority is the Crown. That is why we have a Crown Prosecution Service, not a Regina Prosecution Service.

    I know nothing about the constitutionality of Canada, nor am I that interested. In the UK the Crown prosecutes, not Regina (or Rex) or the Queen. I am sure not even in Canada does the Queen prosecute in her personal capacity.
    Do Canadian prosecution authorities do so in the name of the monarch? Or of the nonagenarian who resides in London SW1? We must separate the Crown (the state) from the Queen (the individual).

Even thought for many years that their blood, Royal, was really different from mine. But that is not the gist of your piece and what I really like about it. I find your questioning of our educators and the people in general of Barbados inability to hold leaders and persons in positions of authority accountable for their behaviors and the insularity that in ways reflect a kind of a sub-culture to be right on target.The lack of this has created a boys club that has led to the decadence of the island over the years in all forms and fashions.

The title Queen (or King) symbolises the state in such situations. But s/he is also an individual and we must separate the two.
    When we swear allegiance to the Queen, we are doing it to the state, not the individual, so it is silly to say, even in jest, that swearing allegiance to the Queens and her successors is to swear allegiance to the Queen and her family. It is simply to swear allegiance to whoever is head of state.
    One lesson we must learn, we can be wrong for a number of years, all it means is that we have been wrong for a number of years. Time does not correct a wrong.

    By the way, I am still waiting for someone to tell me what having the last word means, apart from the literal meaning.

    “You may have the last word ” is an oxymoron or is that misnomer, when it is used here

    The party stating it usually means dat “dem dude wid you and that subject”

    Much in the vein of “a fool convinced against his will is of the same opinion still…”

    One decides that it is no longer worth the effort and you cease and desist permanently

    In the early day here on BU I grew to love seeing the classic “thine hignorance knoweth no bounds” and that would oft proceed “you may have the last word” or it could be a standalone

    I was referring to the “dividing of the Word”.

    Coming on BU has thickened my skin, thankfully. The worst insult I got here was being called a yard fowl. I used to favour the DLP and voted for them (sometimes reluctantly) except for the last election.when I had to face the fact that they were bankrupt of ideas and corrupt. I never belonged to the party or attended meetings and I was quite delinquent in participating in any political activity.

    Now I have some serious problems with how this current administration is governing and each time I exercise my right to comment that birdbrain Lorenzo flits by, lumps me together with Mariposa et al and has degraded me to the level of pooch picker. At first I found that imagery very hard to take but eventually I grew another layer of skin. He has done me a favour.

    Nobody has to respect me if they don’t want to. Not even my mother is obligated to love me. Everybody is entitled to make their own choices. They can choose good or they can choose evil. I have to learn how to grow strong enough to deal with it. I am much happier since I accepted that fact. I no longer dwell on what is said about me or what is done to me. I focus on my response and try to make it constructive for me. That is the only factor over which I can exercise control. Anything else is just a waste of energy that could be better used.

    Emperor Tewodros II’s Hair Will be Returned to Ethiopia by the UK
    The Ethiopian Emperor’s hair was stolen by the British during their invasion of Ethiopia in 1868.
    The British are in a giving mood, or rather, a mood to return what they initially stole from their plundering of African countries. The locks of hair which were taken from Emperor Tewodros II following his death, are to be returned to the Ethiopian government in a few days according to the BBC.

    The British invaded Ethiopia in a battle known as Maqdala in 1868. Among the numerous artifacts that they looted and have since gone on to display in various museums across the country, were the locks of hair which were taken from Emperor Tewodros II. In protest, he had refused to be taken as a prisoner by the British and instead decided that committing suicide would be a more honorable death for him. His son, Prince Alemayehu, was also taken along with the artifacts that were stolen. The locks of Emperor Tewodros II’s hair were then passed on to the National Army Museum in London about six decades ago.

    READ: A Stolen Ancient Egyptian Artifact Has Been Returned from a UK Auction Hall

    A spokesperson for the National Army Museum told the BBC:

    “It’s definitely not a precedent. That’s the only one that’s been requested. They have to be formal, written requests to the director with a case”.
    However, in contrast to the spokesperson’s statement, Ethiopia requested that ALL its looted artifacts, worth millions of dollars, be returned to them.

    It is ironic, if not preposterous, that African countries are tasked with having to formally request (in writing) that their own stolen treasures be returned by the thieves. These same thieves who have even more absurdly insisted that the artifacts be returned “on loan”. Fancy that.”

    YES JESUS IS COMING SOON FOR HIS CHURCH AT WHAT IS CALLED THE RAPTURE

    THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES ABOUT THIS EVENT IN

    I THESSALONIANS 4:13 TO 18

    But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

    14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

    15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

    16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    THIS EVENT IS ALSO TAUGHT IN I CORINTHIANS 15:51 ET SECQ THUS

    51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

    52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

    54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

    56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

    57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

    PLEASE KINDLY NOTE THAT ENOCH AND ELIJAH WERE ALSO TRANSLATED TO HEAVEN WITHOUT EXPERIENCING DEATH

    Why can’t little England follow suit by not only ditching the monarchy after old Lizzie fades away but also the harlot of religious mumbo-jumbo called the whoring daughter of Henry V111?

    The last political war which was waged in the selection of the local chief sambo was a clear indication that irrelevant institution (like the monarchy) is not fit for purpose for an Independent 21st century Barbado(e)s and needs to be indigenized in the most miscegenous of manners.

    “The Freed American Slaves Who Came to Live in Trinidad
    on October 11, 2018

    More than two hundred years ago, almost a thousand freed black people from the United States were taken to Trinidad and settled there in several communities that exist to this day. They are the Merikins and this is their story.

    Corps of Colonial Marines
    After the Napoleonic Wars broke out in Europe, Britain attempted to blockade US trade with France, accused Americans of harbouring deserters, and did its level best to harry American settlements by supporting Native Americans in their raids. It all became too much and, on June 18th, 1812, President James Madison succumbed to pressure and declared war on the United Kingdom. Black soldiers signed up on both sides but the British Vice Admiral, Sir Alexander Cochrane, offered freedom to any slave willing to join its Corps of Colonial Marines. More than three thousand left the plantations to either work or fight for the British who were already overstretched militarily as they were also fighting in Europe. Adept scouts, the new recruits also proved themselves on the field of battle, being described as the “best skirmishers possible for the thick woods of the country” by British Rear Admiral George Cockburn.

    The British, aided by the Corps of Colonial Marines, inflicted heavy defeats on the Americans and were even able to burn Washington D.C. in 1814 but public opinion in Britain was against the war and peace negotiations began in 1814. The British began withdrawing and offered to resettle the black soldiers and their families in one of its colonies. Hundreds took them up on their offer and were initially taken, with their families, to Bermuda but were then re-settled in Trinidad at the request of Governor Sir Ralph Woodford who wanted to populate certain parts of the island. Five hundred and seventy-four former soldiers and about 200 women and children were taken to Trinidad aboard the ships, the Mary and Dorothy and the Lord Eldon.

    Each of the six companies of the Corps was given land to form its own village under the leadership of
    a corporal or sergeant. The villages were named after the companies and some, such as the Fifth and Sixth Company villages, still retain their names. (How cool is that!!) Each Marine was given 16 acres of land and many became farmers, growing their own food.

    The Merikins
    The Merikins as they called themselves or came to be known were Baptists but many also practiced African traditions including communal help, herbal medicine and Obeah. Prominent Merikins include Althea McNish and Brent Sancho. Their contributions to Trinidad society and economy are tremendous.”

    The priests preach what the congregation wants to hear. They like pep talks. That is why the congregation voted for one person and the priests voted for the other for bishop. Gibson is more of a quiet teacher and Rogers is a dynamic preacher. The congregation does not want deep thought. They want entertainment. Those who want to know about the Bible go to Codrington College and do the diploma as I did.

    PS. I can also define “Arian” and “gnostic’ etc. Learnt all that up there too. Books still in my bookcase.

    At Codrington College I learnt the origins of some of the stories in the Bible and the similarity to stories from other cultures and religions. Noah and the flood was one of them. They are quite thorough and truthful up there. That is why I am open-minded and not overly attached to particular stories. To me they are teaching tools.
