Freundel Stuart to SPEAK!

ccw-v-depeiza-dlp

 Verla De peiza, Leader of the DLP

Former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is being promoted as the guest speaker at the St. James South branch meeting scheduled for May 19, 2019. The first reaction from the blogmaster to the news is that after one year the giant appears to have been coaxed from his slumber by the Goddess of Isis.

The topic of his speech has not been shared with the public – this is consistent with Stuart’s style of communicating with those he was elected to serve. Why would he change now? The fact he presided over a political party discombobulated at the polls will never be a consideration for him.

An interesting debate has emerged as to why the DLP would invite Stuart to address a branch meeting. And why would Donville’s constituency have extended the invitation at this time.

June 24, 2019 is the date set by the United States Federal Judge Kiyo Matsumoto to hear the case filed by United States prosecutors against former International Business and Commerce Minister Donville Inniss.

Is there a story line to be read from the tea leaves? Many prefer the DLP to die and for something new to rise from its ashes. It supports the view that like the mortals we are, entities also have a shelf life.

The blogmaster has shared the view that Verla De Peiza has no significant power base within the party. She has a weak ‘brand’. Her position is undermined with the appointment of Irene Sandiford-Garner, regarded as a political light weight. De Peiza has been selected post the 30-0 defeat of the party as a stop gap leader because it is a role any sensible political aspirant will spurn at this time. This may explain why she lacks the political courage to overrule the invitation by the St. James South branch for Stuart to speak.

  1. Will the Clyde Mascoll/David Thompson story line be repeated.
  2. Will Stuart’s delivery be a mea culpa?
  3. Will Stuart continue with his Mount Olympus philosophical musings?
  4. Well Stuart- for once- embrace the role of a statesman and share relevant insights to a political party with the scent of the political dustbin it is nostrils?

Time will tell.

  1. FUMBLE HAS NOT YET SPOKEN BUT 125 POSTS!
    HOW MANY POSTS WILL BU BRIMBLERS WITH LOTS OF TIME —–LOTS OF PRECIOUS TIME- PRODUCE WHEN FUMBLE ACTUALLY SPEAKS?

    You know that there will always be loyals who will support both political parties regardless of their worse showings. Be that as it may, the 30 love showed clearly that the larger percentage of the populace made their feelings known at the poll towards Stuart and his bandits. I know that you also know that the majority of those loyals are loyal because they can speak of the good hands that bail them out of a stranglehold, or the two or three jobs given to family members during dire straits situations. Since you are crunching the numbers, further extend the statistics towards the percentage or approximate numbers that abandon the DLP party for the excessive burdens placed upon them, while feathering the nest of a select group of rich elitist. So regardless of those who still want to hail King Stuart, one cannot negate the fact that it is several of King Stuarts hails and committed atrocities that lend heavily towards the falling out with the DLP. The numbers will correlate to show the difference between loyal lap dogs and those who no longer lap at the DLP feet are several percentage points, at the moment, higher than the paltry 3000, who are bounded by gifts and bailouts that bind. This is a case where the majority counts. He may address his loyal following, but 3000 is just a drop in the bucket with a very small ripple effect.

    Fraction BLP

    We felt the effects of Stuarts extraordinary-ism-skism. We also heard his lavish and arrogant words about when the DLP are finished fixing the economy, then all will say that this DLP was the best administration ever to rule in Barbados. We also heard is extraordinary temperament in keeping silent on issues and lambasting others on mundane things too personal for him to overlook. If he kept Barbados out of the IMF hands, the price he paid for doing that resulted in a South coast shit street, stinking piles of garbage all over the island, pot-wells in the road network, escalation in crime, controversial decisions on important matters, several charges of corruption, and borrowing like there is no tomorrow with nothing to show for it. You are so darn right Fraction BLP, King Stuart is indeed an extraordinary individual he deserves to continue to speak to the blind, while he remains blind himself.,

    I believe you are confusing two different issues. You need to understand there is a significant difference between a former PM addressing the general population and a former president of the DLP addressing his constituents.

    Why is it that, during Stuart’s tenure, we were able to separate PM Stuart addressing the nation from Stuart as the DLP’s president, addressing the membership. Yet we are now unable to separate the two, where in this instance, the only variables that have changed are, he is no longer PM, so he does not have to address the nation; he is no longer president of the DLP, but as a member and former president of that party, the party reserves the right the invite him or whoever they wish as a guest speaker.

    Yes, I understand your point re: “the percentage or approximate numbers that abandon the DLP party for the excessive burdens placed upon them.”

    However, their “percentage or approximate numbers” are irrelevant to this issue. They may not want to hear anything Stuart has to say and would fall into the same category as those people who rejected him and the DLP. As such, they fall OUTSIDE his “threshold.”

    I used the 2,757 votes (Stuart = 1,083 and Inniss = 1,674), and since the meeting is slated to be held in St. James South, I also included Inniss’ votes, as an example to indicate they may garner support from those numbers.

    Remember, of the 153,745 valid votes casted in the last general elections, the DLP received 33,985 votes (22.10%). That was 33,985 voters who CONTINUED to SUPPORT Stuart and the DLP, DESPITE the number of people “that ABANDONED the DLP party for the excessive burdens placed upon them.”

    Hence, your comment re: “The numbers will correlate to show the difference between loyal lap dogs and those who no longer lap at the DLP feet are several percentage points, at the moment, higher than the paltry 3000, who are bounded by gifts and bailouts that bind.”……

    ……. is speculative, unless you have proof that a significant percentage of the 33,985 voters LEFT the DLP after the party lost the elections.

    So, I wholeheartedly agree with your comment re: “This is a case where the majority counts.” Because it is the majority of 33,985 who are ready and willing to embrace Stuart that counts, as well as those who, for one reason or the other, did not vote for the DLP in last’s year’s elections and now see it fit to reconcile with the party.

    Therefore, it’s not for you, me or the 119,716 people who did not vote for the DLP, to decide if Stuart speaks at any DLP event. It’s a decision that has to be made by the DLP hierarchy, the 33,985 DLP voters and others who may have returned to the fold..

    I also believe it is a bit presumptuous for us to make any assumptions, because “nun uh we don’t know wuh de man gine talk ‘bout.”

    France has Joan of Arc, la Pucelle d’Orléans, we have Mia the Strong from Sandy Lane
    +++++++++
    I agree with you as you have a willing convert here, let me add to your thoughts Mia should issue a Presidential edict (we are not a republic yet but that is a trifling issue) and declare that Freundel shall be prohibited from speaking at any meeting private or public for eternity. And henceforth any person that names their child Freundel shall be subject to a fine or a term of imprisonment or both and they shall be banished to an offshore island (again small details).

    I await further posts with great anticipation


  5. @ Sargeant,

    For naming your child Freundel the parent should be punished by having to repeat David of BU 100 times an hour a day and reading BU for the rest of the day.

    What the people of St. James South (SJS) should hear from Lord King Stuart- the fumbling slumbering giant who is about to rise like the Phoenix from St. Michael South-is his express support for the former representative of that constituency (SJS) and a former heavyweight Minister of the Crown in his Cabinet.

    How come Leroy Greenverbs Parris is so deserving of such showery adulation of being called ‘an estimable gentleman and successful businessman’ deserving of being called an intimate friend while poor Don is being treated as a genuine social leper?

    Since the Don already has a high profile lawyer, would Lord Fraudel give the Don of porn and con a political fig leaf to hide his naked greed and love of kickbacks and extend a hand of forgiveness or would he be sold down the river like how OSA tried to sell him MAM?

    There is no confusion of the issue here. You may stick to your point regarding whom he speaks and why it is ok for him to speak. I am sticking to my position that his voice is not exactly the voice that appeases or ever pleased, where good management was the concern. He used his voice more often than not to stir up controversy for himself. Unfortunately, I am not a pragmatist like you and so I have difficulty differentiating between the two ideals of the man because the man to whom you speak is one of the same regardless if roles are now switched. His dumbfounded legacy as PM is still fresh in the minds of many, and I am sure that countless others would wish him to remain silent as all that he is good for is parables and giving sermons. I cannot differentiate between the personality that exhibited the Stuart factor while as Prime Minister, and forget what that man did just because he has slumped back into the everyday ease of things.but you are right, he may speak, no one needs to listen but the fed 3000.


  8. @Hal Austin

    You continue to criticise this blog and it’s contributors on a daily basis, believing you are the brightest dude who posts here. Yet you repeat David of BU and read BU for the rest of the day.

    Would you mind telling us what you’re being punished for?


  9. @ Artaxerxes the Archiver

    Were it only the issue that Fumbles was addressing the party faithful AND IT WAS AN INTERNAL MATTER, de ole man would be inclined to say that you have a point here.

    But as my Dearest SSS has said and others have appended, it is the incompetences if this man at the level of first among equals that has to be assessed

    THE BUNGLING INCOMPETENT LOST SUPERLATIVELY!!!

    And as Miller says, I am not sure if this is the Sage, but his style is similar in its acuity, Fumbles seems to be shifting to Pornville’s seat 💺 under this guise.

    This is Verla De Pieza fault to have left the seat empty for so long as opposed to doing two things

    Namely orchestrating silently to fill Pornville’ s and Fumbles’ seats

    Verla is going to be ousted and Short me Crutch Hitler Stephen Lashley seems destined to rise

    Though he is a Hitler too who does dip he hands in tings dem


  10. My Sweet Piece

    It really is pathetic when from the pool of DLPites likely to rise to the front of leadership, you have no choice but to try to find competency amongst incompetency. To think that amongst them Verla De Peiza was selected as president and leader of the party would tell you upfront that there is not much to pull from when you can choose her. I would think that Irene Garner Sandiford would have been a likely choice but she featured too prominently amidst the squander that led many to feel the pain of squalor. Stephen Lashley- I do not think so.


  11. @My Dearest SSS

    I too would err towards Mrs Sandiford Garner among those that remain since she is devoid of many of the faults that many of the others have. She is said to listen by the way.

    However I am examining the existing power base in the party.

    Those who are within that command respect big more importantly support.

    I anticipate that they will be back to campaign in 2023 and de ole man IF STILL HERE, will campaign against Mugabe and scum like Lkl Hitler Minister of Wuk Ups.

    http://imgur.com/gallery/7SGGU

    The thing about the fight going forward Is to introduce a viable ANC competent Third Party Movement that will put both of these parties on notice.

    They have to do their own dislodging of their waste f**ps bug at this time, with Stinkliar hated and Michael Lashes out of the CONTENDING because of his drug associates AND HIS FACE , Pornville in prison, and Bulldog Estwich on medication the only Male in contention is unfortunately Lil Hitler.

    To dislodge him Mugabe would have to let the financials of *** fall off a truck.

    But that is not in Mugabe’s interest is it?

    I will send a new request to the Honourable Blogmaster to send you my new email okay?


  12. “Were it only the issue that Fumbles was addressing the party faithful AND IT WAS AN INTERNAL MATTER, de ole man would be inclined to say that you have a point here.”

    PUDRYR

    But that’s not exactly wuh um is???????

    Stuart is slated to “address the party faithful and it’s an internal matter.”

    But than again, I’m appallingly ignorant as a result of learning by rote, so the level of this discussion may be too high for me to understand.


  13. @ ARTAXERXES – Superlative Archiver

    My tangent with regard to Fumbles AND THE WHOLE HORDE OF PARLIAMENTARIANS lies in their service to country

    Everything else is of little importance because the sole denominator of that position is service to country.

    I ent no DLP nor BLP supporter U am about country.

    In this regard Fumbles and Stinkliar ARE TRAITORS OF THIS PRECEPT and at best should be locked up AT WORST WELL I LEAVE THEM TO PACHAMAMA…

    So when any oc these men are allowed to speak, even at a parent teachers meeting, I CONSIDER IT TO BD AN INSULT TO GHE CITIZENS of the country which they pledged to support.

    I hope that explains my position properly


    • If it is a post mortem the party wants to be engaged then do so behind closed doors IF Verla is concerned with the sensibilities of an electorate that discombobulated the party under Stuart at the election. This blogmaster has already stated a political party should not be divorced from civil society. What internal matter what!


  14. “We don’t need a mistress we need a servant of the people!”

    don’t know what these jackasses think this is..they are stupid SHEEPLE..unable to think for themselves, president Mia IS A SERVANT..paid by THE PEOPLE…she and all her half-assed consultants and useless hangerson.


  15. My Sweet Piece

    I am not looking to any of the DLP for one shite. The opportunity for them to run the country on principle turned out to be 10 years of messes and shouts of corruption. They have a proven track record of failure post the Sandiford era. And to think I actually supported these jackasses. Crisis is the best time to test one’s mantle and this party is not crisis prepared or crisis driven. They are pathetically filled with excuses and the fact that they could funnel so many millions into one mans hand also proves that they were all in it to meet at the meeting point to get their share of the spoils. So they are corrupt like Donville. Notice how stinking Dennis Low Lowe drop off the map, how stinking Chris Sinckler drop off the map, how Michael Lashley all of a sudden is the most sought after lawyer for the moment not interested in what is happening in the DLP. Perhaps its strategy, but all I smell is stink.


  16. Hal Austin

    I prefer to be obscene and profane, rather than two face and corrupt. Our system of government under these two parties would make anyone obscene and profane, don’t you think? It makes me sick to the core. I hope you notice that on here only two obscenities come from the tips of these fingers. The C word- only for stinking pooch licking loyals like Lorenzo, and Mariposa Aka AC. The word shite – use to vent my frustration towards the political system and other clowns on here writing a bunch highfoluted shite to sound intelligent. I never use the RH word or the F word. So I am not as obscene as you think hehe.


  17. RE If it is a post mortem the party wants to be engaged then do so behind closed doors IF Verla is concerned with the sensibilities of an electorate that discombobulated the party under Stuart at the election.
    SUGGESTION
    LET THE DLP CALL IN DEE PEDANTIC DRIBBLER
    HE CAN SHOW THEM HOW TO DO AN EMERGENCY POST MORTEM
    MURDA


  18. That is the problem with a lot of Barbadians today … wunnah have bare talk and nah action … Our focus should be on how do we return Barbados and its people to its respectable place in the Caribbean.

    Nevertheless, it makes little or no sense talking about the past … GP and the Old Man sense wunnah got so much time on wunnah hand …get one morning and pick the garbage from around the island and in so doing y’all will in essence teach the young people the concept of volunteerism.

    And lastly, don’t ask what your all pollutians can do fah wunnah … ask what wunnah cah do fah wunnah country ..


  19. William,
    One of the good things about BU is that it allows you to see in to the mind of how a certain sector of Barbadian society thinks. A party ruled for ten years and was wiped out at the last general election. We need to know what internal, regional and global battles they faced; why they failed to introduced policies that looked obvious to the rest of us. They are intelligent men and women so something must have went wrong.
    The only way of dong this in Barbadian society, an oral culture, is by allowing the key players to talk about it. In some societies those players will go off and work in think-tanks, write books and long reports, etc. By denying former DLP ministers a platform we are cutting off knowledge from the Barbadian public, which in the long term s more damaging. We are doing a disservice to the very society we profess to love.
    Censorship is the action of fools and fascists. Hitler burned books, jihadists burn books; dictators burn books. Equally, fundamentalists censor new ideas, fools are comfortable with their ignorance.(Quote)
