STOP Playing Tit for Tat Politics

wayne-cadogan

Submitted by Wayne Cadogan, Retired Garment Manufacturer, Trainer, Consultant

It is very difficult for me and many others to grapple every day with the fact the DLP is referred to as the opposition party when nine others parties contested the elections and not one of them won a single seat with the BLP winning with a clean sweep of the thirty seats contested. 

Why is it that former members of the DLP are speaking out on issues as the opposition when there are eight other parties that are in the same boat as the DLP without a single representative in the house that can consider themselves as opposition members too? 

The  most pressing issue that is currently hurting the country severely is the spate of murders and which has become a very troublesome issue for the government, people and international reputation.

The former Attorney General Mr Adriel Brathwaithe has some nerve to tell the present Attorney General to resign over the current gun violence that is currently bringing this country to one of fear and despair when all of this started under his watch during his spineless reign as Attorney General.

It is about time that the politicians in this country get serious about what is really happening to this country before it gets to a point that it cannot be reverse. This tit for tat tactics that both parties use against each other is not politics but a bunch of immature politicians whose behaviour is similar to that of kids growing up. 

 

This country is facing serious problems and sailing in dangerous waters that it has never traversed and we all need to put our heads together to turn this ugly situation around before it completely destroys our fragile tourist industry we have to depend on for the only source of foreign exchange.

The politicians in this country need to act more mature and businesslike and realize that running a country is not child’s play, it is serious business to run a country and it needs competent people.  

 

It would be in the best interest if the members of the DLP if the party is to rise from the grave as a political party in this country again, to stop being so negative and criticizing everything that the government does, praise them occasionally for some of its efforts in trying to get the country back on track that they helped to destroy.

  • Prime Minister Mia Mottley has signalled her intention to forge deep ties with countries outside of North America and Europe.

    The latest effort saw a delegation of government officials and key business figures meet in the Moroccan capital of Rabat, where the Prime Minister, along with Foreign Minister Senator Dr Jerome Walcott, pledged to good relations with the North African nation.

    Mottley said: “Traditionally, Barbados has had a destiny that has looked north and has looked to the Caribbean region.

    Rogue Works is no friend of mine, nor are certain deceitful members in her line up either. But you really need to come off the defense of the wicked is ass DLP. There is nothing about the BLP that can convince me that they change from the last 15 years of doing Me- First shite to Saints intended to save the suffering. The suffering was magnified and intensified under two face deceitful shite of Prime Minister called Freundel Stuart, and his out to get money bunch to crooked bandits. How in the name of roast beef can you defend these shites and the shite you did and come out with guns blazing at the BLP. Stop defending the crooks and focus your attention on the new set yet to reveal their art of treachery. Pisses me off to see at times you can be so logical when talking about the BLP and their motive, to a total sheep-goat when trying to defend a thieving bunch of shites from the DLP.

    You are right on 3 points

    1…The total absence of a Followup on Charles Herbert considering that the last article here exceeded 650 comments AND THE HONOURABLE BLOGMASTER HAS DONE FOLLOWUPS FOR LESS.

    2…The obviousness of THD MUGABE REGIME BLACKOUT on particular topics as directed by Mugabe to her MINISTER OF DISINFORMATION.

    3…THE STUPIDITY OF MUGABE TO BE OUT THERE LEADING INVESTMENT MISSIONS when she is seen as the very head of the Sovereign Default of Barbados

    Instead of leading indigenous diversification strategies she flying all over the world looking to fool people to come to Barbados where they will probably get robbed or shot by the disturbingly structured 100 member strong Gangs who are perfecting state sanctioned murders?

    There is a thing nuh?

    Imagine that the Mugabe regime’s Attorney General SEEMS INCAPABLE OF removing the SCOURGE of this obviously ordered gangland activity

    It is almost like if HE AND HIS MASTERS, DO NOT WANT TO ERADICATE THEM!!!

    “World Premiere of the story of a young man from Trinidad whose life’s journey gave him a place on the world stage.

    Wednesday July 18, 2018 – The highly anticipated World Premiere and Official Launch of Frances-Anne Solomon’s feature film, “Hero: Inspired by The Extraordinary Life and Times of Mr. Ulric Cross,” will be as the Opening Film at Trinidad and Tobago’s prestigious Film Festival, on September 18, 2018 at NAPA, in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

    Republic Bank is the Title Sponsor for HERO — a Tall Caribbean Tale about a young man from Trinidad who, in 1941, leaves home to enlist in World War Two. Miraculously, he survives the bloody carnage to become the RAF’s most decorated West Indian. Then his life takes another surprising turn and he finds himself at the centre of a remarkable historical moment. Cross’ long life spanned key events of the 20th century and included the independence struggles of Africa and the Caribbean.

    The international cast includes top screen stars from the Caribbean, the UK, Ghana and Canada including Trinidad’s Nickolai Salcedo in the lead role of Ulric Cross; Canada’s Peter Williams (Stargate-SG1); the UK’s Joseph Marcell, (Fresh Prince of Belair), Jimmy Akingbola (In The Long Run), Pippa Nixon (Panic), Fraser James (Resident Evil) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (Julie); Ghanaian superstars John Dumelo and Adjetey Anang; and featuring cameos by well-known East Enders star Rudolph Walker and Nollywood star O.C.

    Is this air-sandwich an attempt to counterbalance the negative news we recently received about Bitt. I read the story twice and there is NOTHING about the contribution that impresses me. I can only conclude it is counter programming.

    Highlight of the contribution “otherwise it’s incumbent on us to fight for the best deal possible and not be overly concerned with veiled threats of what might happen. It may happen, it may not happen, this is so far still an equally-balanced negotiation.”

    Let me see if I can match this brilliance
    We should hope for the best weather possible and do not be overtly concerned with veil threats of an overcast sky. It may rain, it may not rain, but so far it is not raining.

    Perhaps, I underestimated the man. After that statement, I just feel brilliant.

  • Real GDP growth slowed down in 2018 to an estimated 3 percent compared to 4.1 percent in 2017, owing to the decline of agricultural value-added growth, which was only partially compensated by otherwise good performance of nonagricultural activities. Mining activities contributed the most to growth apart from agriculture, mostly driven by phosphates production and exports. The unemployment rate slightly decreased to 9.8 percent, yet it masked a protracted decline in the labor force participation, which dropped by 0.5 percentage point to 46.2 percent. With an exchange rate pegged to a basket of euro and U.S. dollar, inflation remained below 2 percent.

    Over the medium term, economic performance is expected to improve enabled by sound fiscal and monetary policies, more consistent sector strategies, and an improved investment environment, all of which are aimed at supporting gradual competitiveness gains. While growth is expected to drop to 2.9 percent in 2019 due to low projected increase of agricultural output after two exceptional years, growth will stabilize around an average of 3.6 percent over the medium term.

    There you go. Keep your focus on the BLP. Jepter Ince can take his disclosures and follow Stuart’s building of a broken merry-gone-wrong to keep him busy and out of the spot light for CH ever. Take note that Rogue Works is no longer addressing certain issues or matters as she indicated in her plans to update GP (General Public) on a regular basis. She decided to find a high paying position for another one of her pals in the form of Press Secretary Roy Morris instead. What makes her any different to Stuart who was not talking to the people? Does a Press Secretary convey the same reassurance as a Prime Minister to whom the people are looking for leadership and guidance on matters developing and SITUATIONS that need addressing? When the Rogue Cuts the simple folk and create serious money earning positions for the folk holding her panty strings, how can we not be wondering about her motives at this time? One person mention about what happened to her rubbing shoulders mission. The best person to address that would be ALDEN BLACKMAN. She rubbed shoulders with him until she became Prime Minister. Rogue Works Mottley would do well to understand that when she ignores the simple folk under the guise that she has more important matters to attend to, but can grant tax amnesty and elevate her father with a knighthood in the shortest possible time so he can be above the average Joe during her first few months as Prime Minister, she is setting up herself for serious criticism and charges that will take her down the same road as Idiot Freundel Stuart. If she had publicly showed help for the plight of Alden Blackman imagine what that would have done for her image. Then there is the matter of promises made that are certainly not being kept, Certainly she can address this by giving reassurances. Instead transparency and accountability is presented by them with a lot of talk but little disclosure. Let things like that, and other matters arising from the things she is trying to convince Barbadians that are expedient but necessarily lawful, be your focus. The DLP kill themselves. Not at boy can convince me to listen to one shite they got to say even if it true and legit. They are all liars, frauds, scumbags, insulters, thieves, and schemers. If loyal lapdógs want to follow them, go right ahead. The blind can never convince me again, and those who hurt an entire island for their personal gain, will reap the scorn of the SSS. THE DLP ARE DEAD!!

    There you go Mariposa. Let the blasted DLP go and search for the oasis, and upon finding the waters, let them be poisonous to the whole entire lot. That is how I feel about the stinking lot that has tarnished the party I once loved. They are no longer in the focus. The hands that must be held to the plough is the party holding the reigns. To whom much has been given, the returns so far are in my opinion minimal. We know that time is not enough to rectify the overall and to see signficance returns towards real progress. However, haste was the order of the day for certain things, and snail pace is the decision that has been made for things like integrity legislation, anticorruption legislation, whistle blower legislation, and establishing a new portfolio of rules for the auditor general which includes powers associated with a contractor general. Not enough protection and guards to keep the treasury free from political indulgences. You keep on raising the Charles Herbert matter because Donville Inniss matter is highlighted. Donville Inniss deserves to be highlighted. He is the first politician to provide the proof that corruption is rampant and wild in BIM and that every single politician, past and present, must be held to greater scrutiny and accountability.

    Going to support Minister of Maritime Affairs and the Blue Economy👍 Kirk Humphrey👍 in this matter.

    I think he has to hold hard on this position and do not waiver or grant waivers.

    One misstep was the ban on importation in April of this year as this ban should have been put in place when the policy was first announced September of last years and order that were already approved be grandfathered in.

    The minister has to be very careful with this matter. The salemites and pick-a-noise crew will be following this story and asking “Is it a ban or is it a scam”? If he starts granting waiver left, right and center, this will be seen as just a way to shakedown businesses and put money in someone’s pocket.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++=

    What we need to hear from the same Minister Humphrey is if he plans to be the Humpty-Dumpty who sat on an environmental sea wall as far as the banning of the importation of other countries piped water in single use plastic bottles.

    Why should poor Bajans be left to suck salt in trying to satisfy the IMF loan-shark called BERT while millions of forex are frittered away by importing stale water in plastic bottles to be disposed of in the already clogged-up gutters by the ‘poor-great’ middleclass wannabes?

    We as concerned citizens of the environment should not be harsh as Marie Antoinette and demand the government completely ban the eating of ‘imported’ cake and ordain the eating of and drinking of only homemade bread and beer for the sake of forex go(o)dliness and environmental cleanliness.

    But why can’t the same Minister think outside the plastic bottle instead of the Styrofoam box and offer incentives to those Bajan water drinkers who are prepared to carry their locally produced water- either boiled or infused with some healthy herbal organically grown concoction like parsley, basil or mary jane?

    I am sure there would be a thriving market to be exploited by the budding entrepreneurs which his country-boy colleague in the Ministry responsible for ‘Small Business’ is pushing with all his small grant funding might.

    (2) Instead of targeting Queens Park in a two-day blitz they should , have regular meetings at two school in every parish. As an example [St Lucy: Selah (January), Half Moon Fort (July)].
    Take the education to the people and stop hoping they come to Queens Park. A nationwide attack on the problem.
    (3) Prepare pamphlets and have them available at health centers, hospitals and every doctor’s office, schools, post offices,
    government offices and police stations
    (4) A one-hour program on healthy cooking on both the radio and television – weekly
    (5) A doctor on TV and radio explaining the complications of heart disease and diabetes – weekly
    (6) Organized weekly hikes/ 3 ,mile ‘marathons’

  • A member of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) is taking the party’s executive to task for failing to show up in their numbers at the funeral of former DLP parliamentarian Dr Erskine Simmons.

    Dr Simmons died at age 82 at the Bayview Hospital, earlier this month, after suffering from an undisclosed illness.
    Former St Michael South East MP Hamilton Lashley, also wants the DLP executive to say why, Dr Simmons, who also represented his riding from 1986 to 1991, and served in the Senate under the DLP from 1991 to 1994, was not given the honour to lie in state at party headquarters.

    Lashley, who attended the funeral at the Holetown Methodist Church on Thursday, said he was shocked to look around the church and see only a few DLP members in attendance.

    When Barbados TODAY contacted DLP President Verla DePeiza, she had no response to Lashley’s comments.
