Open Letter to Barbados Minister of Transport, Works and Maintenance

The plight of Alden BLACKman was carried by Caribbean News 13/03/2019.

March 12, 2019

Hon. William Duguid JP,

Sir, I write to you as the new Minister of Transport, Works and Maintenance. To informed you, and seek clarification, and rectification of a dangerous situation.

Sir, I lived adjacent to a natural watercourse from 1982, and never once saw the course edges overflowed, until 2002, after a British Expat White Woman, obtained the services of heavy equipment, and encroached onto said watercourse, levelled down the edges and made a path/road across, to prepared her lot for building. That process started the alteration of the course.

In late 2002, nearing completion of building, the heavy equipment returned, entered the said course, and proceeded to further altering, by placing boulders out, up, and along the land marks in the centre. That resulted in narrowing the natural course, for an increased of land from within the course, to form a yard-cum-private road that joined the levelled down path/road across the course on her side. The levelled edge to the outer side was not rebuilt.

Those actions brought the first flooding in 20+years. At that stage, I was the most affected by flooding. Thereafter, I was made to endured the consequences of yearly redirecting flood flows to my home causing damages to house and surrounding.

Sir, years of Complaining to Drainage Unit Officers from 2003 and MTW Officers from 2004, to this day, brought no relieved, no remedy , only comfort promises. The top Officers from MTW. Former CTO Thornhill and present DCTO Tudor, the two Officers, I held hope in, for a remedy to said altered course, showed inaction to the plight of this Black man.

Sir, no need for me repeating what was done by Arthur’s Construction when laying pipes for BWA, in said course.  After the pipes were biased laid, the results from heavy rainfall became worse, started to affect the Black Residents of Clarke Road, but MTW/Drainage Unit Officers continued disregarding my pleas, and blatantly overlooked the dangerous situation, and the fact that Black Barbadian lived below the risk.

The effort of MP. Hon. Minister Kerrie Symmonds, did failed by 2008, no remedy was done.

The following 10 years, MTW/ Drainage Unit Officers blatantly continued disregarding the plight of Black Residents of Clarke’s Road, by inactions to the root cause of flooding, for the purpose of allowing a British Ex-pat white woman to have a private road, that was discriminatory maintained with paving, by MTW, leading up to the General Election in 2013.

Sir, the Black Residential Area, road was then, still is deteriorating condition, because it became the new watercourse, due to the altering of the original watercourse in 2002. But was not paved, leading up to 2013 General Election.

While MTW/Drainage Unit Officers kept overlooking the risk. similar actions, were done by a Mr. Clarke in 2010, while preparing his lot behind the White land owner. Mr. Clarke: also got the services of heavy equipment to removed, the remaining edges, from above the across road, to upstream where the floods flow emerges. That deep part of the once natural course, is now a garden.

Its clearly seen by me, and persons with integrity, that the said Officers of MTW/Drainage Unit have afflicted this dangerous situation with blatant disregard, unjustified and discriminatory actions.

Concerned persons acted for the safety of me and my family plight. In late 2010 assisted us with erecting a short protection wall, “on what appears to be a drainage course”, is not the original drainage course, but due to years of erosion from redirected floods flows, caused by the narrowing of the original course in 2002, and the directed wash over floods flows, from the road across the course.

Sir, due to statement from you” as the new Minister of MTW&M”,  in reply, to a an email from me, on 24 Feb 2019  you stated “I have asked for the Town Planning enforcement notice”  this is the first stage.

DCTO Mr. Philip Tudor, email to me, on the 20 Feb 2019, stated  “As I had mentioned to you at a site meeting which we had some time ago, this matter was referred to Chief Town Planner, Whose Agency is responsible for issuing enforcement notices. Please note that no demolition of this structure in St. James could have been carried out by the Ministry of Transport and Works without the authorization of Town and country Planning Department. To date, we have received no such authorization. I will however contact the Chief Town Planner in an effort to see if this situation can be remedied before the 2019 hurricane season”.

Sir, I never met Mr. Tudor, my telephone conversations with Mr. Tudor ceased when I realized that my pleading and hoping were misplaced. Clarification Is needed from Mr. Tudor as to what structure is to be demolish, and for what reason.

Sir, I was informed of further Discriminatory practices against me, “to demolish my protection wall, built in late 2010,” as the “MAIN PROBLEM” that caused flooding to my home, and Clarke’s Road Residents since 2002”, and not the White woman private road, “built into and across the watercourse in 2002”.

Did DCTO Mr. Tudor in 2004, seek to obtained an enforcement notice from the Chief Town Planner, to removed, what he told me, is “an illegal boulders wall private road into, and along the natural watercourse”. why was the road across said watercourse allowed?

This is 15+years later in which Mr. Tudor inactions as to this dangerous situation was as blatantly showed, as the others Officers.

Sir, I now appeal to you for a justly, “right to a wrong” that Residents of Clarke’s Road and I had to endured for the pass 15+ years. Please, see this watercourse site that was once a define natural watercourse, and judge for yourself.

  • Placing boulders in the watercourse and building an impervious road at the edge of the watercourse increased the danger of destruction in a flood.

    Over the last 15 years houses with paved driveways have been built east of this area thereby increasing the volume of water flowing down to the watercourse.

    Hurricane season officially runs from June 1 through November 30.

    There is still time to correct the problem.

  • I am writing in the aftermath of the horrible, terrorist attacks on two mosques in New Zealand and the subsequent, irresponsible attempts on the Barbados airways to conflate “fear of foreigners” with condemnation of Christianity in Barbados. The persons responsible need to be reminded of the massacre at the Mother Emmanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina. The statements follow the ill advised attempt in the same public space to question the suitability of referring to the Right Reverend Michael Maxwell as the Bishop of Barbados. The contribution of Christianity to the settlement and growth of Barbados is well documented. The personal foibles of a few cannot ‘trump’ this work of the church. There is no other cleric who bears responsibility for the ‘cure of souls’ and by implication the ‘care of bodies’ on every square inch of Barbados than the leader of the Anglican church and who throughout our history, even after 1969, remains the focus of unity among Christians in Barbados. Christian communities in Barbados have been led by, have cared for and educated countless persons born in foreign lands. In fact, if the political class would take counsel from the Christian church with respect to the implementation of csme and the incorporation of “the other” into our communities, they would do well. I personally find it disrespectful of the vast majority population, when there is this attempt to de-legitimize their Christian faith with baseless and irresponsible diatribe. Barbadian Christians care deeply about Barbados. Bishop Maxwell cares deeply about Barbados and all Barbadians and others resident here. Therefore, Bishop Maxwell is without doubt, the Bishop of Barbados. Let us express our deep horror of what has occurred in New Zealand and pledge to do our utmost to prevent the same from happening here. Pray for the souls of the dead and for the physical, emotional and spiritual recovery of the survivors and unequivocally condemn those who see it as an opportunity to try to divide Bajans by equating Christianity and “fear of foreigners”.

If Rogue-Works cared about the plight of the average man she would have directed the Transport Minister and all the players that were involved in this unjust act to investigate and rectify. Rogue-Works can’t move a muscle to assist because corruption is involved and she has pardoned all previous corruption and is focus only on dealing with corruption under her watch as Prime Minister. Mr Blackman, your’s is looking and sounding very much like a lost cost.

    How can she be wrong when she is allowed to get away with it? If Blackman is describing an injustice how could it be an injustice when it is allowed to continue? It is obvious that her money has allowed her to purchase a bit of clout, and so if she has violated others rights, but those who have attested that she act illegally with the installation of these boulders have done nothing about it, how in tarnation is that her fault? The fault lies squarely at the feet of those who have given her the Ok do what she pleases. Appealing to what is common decency is irrelevant in this matter. Blackman does not have the means to purchase a bit of common decency because if he could he remove the darn boulders as suggested and wait and see how many worms come out of the woodwork in support of this woman’s illegal act.

    Count the number of people in the various ministries and departments who have been passing the buck on this matter over the years. Do not be surprised by the number THAT IS THE BAJAN WAY.

    Don’t blame the “White” woman. She did none of the work herself. Money talks. That too is THE BAJAN WAY.

    I have just passed the one year milestone in not getting any concrete answers or compensation to the problems- financial and health wise- I went through and still face as a result of the South Coast Sewage brek down and cascading in the street and on private property-mine included.

Be courteous remembering that she only made requests- they were met.

    Mr. Blackman told MTW/Drainage Unit about the dislodged boulders, inaction continued from Officers.

    After November 2016 big flooding, Mr. Blackman pleaded to MP. Symmonds, promises were made, boulders still there. in 2018 MP Symmonds turned up with more comfort promises. boulders still dislodged, illegal road still across and along the watercourse.

    Seriously? Who has the ultimate responsibility to resolve this situation instead of absolving themselves from it? Mia Mottley. Certainly not the white woman, she has done her part; permitted to do so, unfortunately, under the authority of those who give consent in the name of whatever bribe empowered them to do so. The last time I recall, temptation was never accused of being a sin; only those who give in to it. Therefore, this white woman tempted, the greedy brutes took, and all responsibility to this matter has been absolved and overlooked for 15 years. Blackman needs to remove the boulders in the name of protecting his property since the authorities permitted a road to be built in a known watercourse and granted permission for their benefactor to erect boulders there.

    The responsibility lies with Mia Mottley. Mia Mottley is now the power elite. A citizen has a matter that threatens his property and she should look into it and determine what influences led the governing authority to grant permission when such action was condemned as illegal. The same way how Rogue-Works intervene in the constitution to change it for her friends, she can show she cares about the plight of all bajans by attending to the 15 years a son of the soil has been crying out for resolve. Blackman is wasting his time. He should remove the boulders and wait for what comes next. Then you will see the true mantle of our despicable justice system played out in this case.

    Why should she be considerate? She was given permission. If no permission was granted then they would be no case. Why target the darn woman when she is simply using our double standard system to get by. Target those who continue to get away with doing bare shite in the name of officialdom.

Both Officers must have known, “The Prevention of Floods Act Cap 235” and who have the responsibility to carry it out, in a case like “The dangerous situation posed by a watercourse in Clarkes road, St. James”.

    The said CTO of MTW, did inaction to the illegal private road that caused the risk, but sent Mr. Innis from Drainage Unit to sink a 20ft well in the wrong place, floods flows bypassed well, to Clarke’s road.

    MTW,CTO Frank Thornhill next unjustified, discriminatory action, was to task MTW work men to paved the said private road within and across the watercourse. Even though he told Mr. Blackman in 2004 the road is illegal and he will have the boulders removed.

    CTO, Mr. Frank Thornhill, had the duty to protect Mr. Blackman, a Barbadian taxpayer, from the risk of a created situation, of which he had the authority to remedy.

    CTO, Frank Thornhill promised an Officer of MTW that he will remedy the dangerous situation at Clarke’s Road, right to his retirement from MTW. The dangerous private road remained a risk.

    Why don’t you learn to get your facts right? Did Mark Cummins had any legal authority to grant or refuse the cement facility planning permission or only to serve a stop notice because of the erection of a structure without planning permission? Stick to the Alden Blackman matter and stop conflating issues.

    Hello my sweetie. I am sure if you read again you will see that my only comment with respect to Mark Cummins was that he was given a PS post so that his part in frustrating Mark Maloney’s efforts to continue constructing his Cement Barn House would come to an end. Now how in the name of pooch licking did you arrive at me muddling facts? I do not see any reason why I should decipher between Mark Cummins authority to refuse to grant or Mark Cummins authority to serve a stop notice blah, blah, blah, when it so obvious to see. The point is that a thorn was pulled out from Mark Maloney side and Mark Maloney was freed by those who were bought with his campaign financing.

    You have to expect that sort of attack for any dissenters against Mugabe

    Let me list the methods

    1.They do the classic GRAMMAR POLICE ATTACK. Under this frontal attack they seek to tear down targets by speaking about your English

    Like they did with the young UWI student Kemar who showed that Mugabe’s BERT was poop

    They attack your looks and or skin colour or your significant other’s skin colour, your bald head, weave, drooping breast, known sexual prowess, sexual deviancy, child rapist status.

    Remember how they used to talk about the skin tone of the Honourable Blogmaster some years back

    They attack your profession

    Like they did with the Luminary Jeff Cumberbatch when he first came here and almost left in a week

    They attack your character and associations Leroy Paris the Leper, Michael Carry way a ton, the late DPP the Guyanese

    Then the call you names.

    Mine is the Conspiracist and the Wearer of Tin Foil

    You are Miss EU Marketing Manager

    They don’t know how to cope with people who embrace their names

    But they get fearful of the ones with the data and the materials stored spreadsheets which are not on the drive they accessed, data that these dissidents will not hesitate to publish when challenged.

    It’s a really terrible thing to be in situations where you say something AND IT IS RECORDED, but you can’t delete the records BECAUSE THE VERY DELETION IS AN ACT CONFIRMING YOUR GUILT!

    I mean, when the originals AND THE DELETED VERSIONS are compared, what happens then?

    That is not for you Dearest, the reader knows who it’s for.

    but Those are the ones they fear. The librarians.

    One final thing.

    I am going to be politely crude because I have found that crudity makes sure people DO NOT FORGET THE SUBJECT LESSON

    Just imagine That you and I meet at say 5.19 pm on Saturday 16th 2019, we start to get touchy. note the time reference and go back to 5.19 pm and see the meaning to my story

    The two of us take to a liking of each other, I, in my fairytale story, am totally blown away by your ravishingly spectacular looks and you find my 5.4 foot frame and round belly, cute

    At 6.10, almost an hour after you tek pity on me and say let’s have “sex”, I agree

    But then I say that I want to have “unprotected sex” with you, WOULD YOU AGREE?

    I DONT THINK SO DEAREST yet if you look at that 5.09 and 6.10 pm response between you and one of the BU BORG, that is precisely what you did.

    Now it’s Sunday morning here at 3.21 am and de ole man ent feel like getting up and going to de virtual machine and downloading that picture day you were sent but I caution you about these files Dearest

    If you have to use their pictures use screen shots DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY OF THEIR PICTURES my sweetest

    Forgive my crude imagery BUT I have found that after I speak and use that type of example PEOPLE NEVER FORGET THE MESSAGE AGAIN

    Imagine you and this rooly polly 300 pound 5.4 inches old man in bed!!

    you will never forget my message won’t you?

    In July 2016 the court granted Rock Hard a stay, blocking any further sanction against it until its own appeal was heard in the High Court. Maloney by law could continue to build while the matter was in the court and I can recall a BU contributor making this point. Cummins became an acting PS in February 2018 and it is understood that the former PM granted permission just before the 2018 elections. Admitting that you should not “decipher” between permission granting power and a stop notice, is an admission that you should not comment. Good analysis starts with sound evidence. Again, stop conflating.
    P.S: I don’t support a “Cement Barn House” next to a flour mill.

    LOL. You are funny. You know that the SSS has earned a reputation on here for being nasty. I mean, I will be the first to admit that of recent, I seem to have found Jesus. Normally I would have ripped into Puff Lappy already. But, the bitch in me seems dormant or more like getting tired. I am not bothered at all about Mottley and her spyware nor the sweet pooch licker Puff Enuff. Puffy should know that titles are not given to you up here because of political affiliation. You have to know your onions if you want to continue in that wash pan of money. He just jealous that my salary is more than Mottley per year and that I do not have to lie, steal, and make deals for kick backs. And, Mottley can track me down however she likes through her communication specialist, she is not the only one that has computer experts at her disposal. Besides, I still got what the old man has begged me not to reveal to bounce pun her wicked ass in due course. You think she clean, trust me piece, Mottley is a complete rogue.

    You are hilarious. There was tic for tac between Maloney and Cummins ever since the stinking DLP decided to put him into all the money bearing projects. Maloney even charged that he felt the then Chief Town Planner had a bone to pick with him as Mark Cummins continue to act in accordance with Town and Country Planning Rules. So since Markie Mark was not having it with any more of Mark Maloney shenanigans, the DLP foot the move easing Maloney’s pressure. Early or late, they plan the plot, soon after that plot showed clearly why it was the plan. Dahhhhhh!!!

    You still have not demonstrated, either by way of FACT or sound reasoning, why there was a need to promote the former CTP to PS to get him away from the “Cement Barn House” when all Maloney had to do was get permission from the PM, which he knew was forthcoming, and the enforcement would be quashed. But you carry on with your cohorts like TinFoil, who thrive on lies and conflation. It is always about reading to respond rather than to understand. By the way you could never rip into me and I think you know that very well.

  • I am asking all Black Barbadians from all social classes, to look again, at what befall the Black Barbadian Residents of Clarke’s Road, something similar, can happen to you or your family anytime.

    From 2002, until this day, the BLP Black Barbadian led Government, have unjustly allowed, and the DLP Black Barbadian led Government have discriminatory maintained and continued to unjustly allowed a British ex-pat White person to have a private road across and within an active watercourse above a Black Barbadians Residential area. Even though, it is seen as illegal by all Officers of MTW / Drainage Unit.

    This part constituency of St. James Central, is represented by BLP MP Kerrie Symmonds who have failed to obtained a remedy to the dangerous situation, from MTW, when his BLP was the government in 2006.

    A former DLP MP George Hutson who ably obtained the discriminatory actions of the MTW to paved said illegal road.

    Mr. Blackman and I thank you for your support.

    Institutionalized corrupted Officers of MTW/Drainage Unit would sat at a desk, and allowed a person to altered and destroyed a natural watercourse, by placing a private road within and across the course. Then blatantly showed inaction to the risk, and disregarded the fact that poor Black Barbadian lived below the risk.

    Watchman and Mr Blackman

    Greater awareness is what is needed in this matter since the political pretenders and the minions they have operating under their direction are all profiting at the expense of the average Barbadian. Time after time we have proof that politics and operatives of the politicians are responsible for the sickness on the island. Rather it increases crime, lawlessness, suffering, inflation, the epicentre of all of this is the wickedness that takes place at the political level and the trickle-down effect that follows it. There is no way in heaven or hell that the events leading up this flood matter can go without blame. Alden Blackman has provided proof that his house and property is under threat of flood waters, and that the watercourse has changed track towards his property and whoever else affected, because of the encroachment of a road with boulders from a rich woman peddling her consent to do as she was directed. Time to up the war and help Alden Blackman against the compromised political double crossers of the Democratic and Barbados Labour Parties.
