The Grenville Phillips Column – The Curse of Special Magic

The historical record of Barbados shows that Barbados welcomes responsible development.  To ensure that developments are built in an orderly manner, the Town and Country Development Planning office has published, and maintains a Physical Development Plan to guide developers.

Every developer who wants to build something in Barbados, whether a house or commercial building, must apply to the Planning office for permission.  If the development is found to be within Planning’s guidelines, then it is normally approved.

Sometimes, a developer may wish to build something that is outside of the Planning guidelines.  The developer may still submit an application, and the Planning office would inform them of any additional regulations for the application to be approved.

That is the normal method of obtaining approval to build.  But our political leaders have allowed a special way of getting building approval – just go and see the Minister.  At these meetings, our Ministers, who are normally woefully inexperienced in construction, are supposed to magically transform into development planning experts.

Tragically for us, the magic on which our politicians rely, by writing such loopholes in our laws, does not appear to work very well – for us.  Special developers tend to out-smart, or out-magic, our Ministers.  It is quite mysterious.  They not only get our Ministers to approve their developments, but they also get very favourable concessions, like not having to pay the normal.  Thanks Ministers.

Since the Government must still pay for public education, health, transportation and infrastructure, the taxes that the specials avoid paying, must be added to the taxes that the rest of us already pay.  Sometimes those taxes are hidden in higher costs to obtain public services, like higher bus fares and water rates.  However, a convenient way for the Government to make us pay their costs is to increase land taxes.  Thanks specials.

Specials tend to rebuke the public if they dare question their Minister-approved developments.  We tend to get rebuked for not seeing the blessings to Barbados from their developments.  Perhaps in their rebukes, they can explain these benefits to Barbadians?  I have tried to find the benefits, but I mostly find curses.  Let me try to inform them.

There is the curse of discriminatory business practises, where you can build what you want because you are special, while we cannot.

There is the curse of an unfair market-place, where you do not pay taxes that the rest of us must pay.  You do not do this by legal tax avoidance, or illegal tax evasion.  Rather, you do not pay these taxes just because you are special.

There is the curse of a corrupt market-place, where Ministers decide who wins and who loses in Barbados’ economy.

Perhaps the most damaging curse of all is that of mendicancy, where the next generation stops trying.  They give-up because they can easily see that a person’s effort in Barbados does not matter.  They can see that prosperity in Barbados does not depend on merit of your efforts, but on whether you are special.  We have gone backwards as a nation.

The problem with the curses of the specials, is that the curse only falls on those who are not special.  Perhaps the next time that they plan to rebuke us, they can explain their superior magic of getting our Ministers to both approve their developments, and lay their massive burden of tax obligations onto the rest of us.

  • Did you get a lot of attention from the traditional media when you first came on the seen as a political party?

    At that time you had a lot of mass appeal which you have lost over the few year.

    The traditional media is looking for mass appeal and thing that will drive an audience to them – this help them attract advertisement and pay they wages and bills. The E.media is cutting into their money.

    Now stop griping! The other parties with less mass appeal then you are not complaining and I am sure that since the elections your (one man party) had more exposure than all of them put together.

    By now it should be clear to you that if you need the exposure in the traditional media, you will have to pay for it.

    You do not need to do an article every week to try to stay relevant. A “once in a while” article that hits home would be more effective then the weekly “warmed over old soup”

    There are a lot of structural flaw in you party that needs straightening out before the people or mass/traditional media will take you very serious again.

    Your party is seen as a one man party so you should be surprised that you are being treated as an independent!

    Also, there is now an (un)official opposition party.

  • Grenville Phillips wrote a Very Good Article it identifies one of the Problems of Barbados that Distorts the Economy and Spreads the Burden among all Barbadians. Freedom Remembers when Sandles Developments were going to save Barbados or even Cost U Less was going to Reduce Food Prices and what we have seen is overly Generous Concessions with Minimum Benefit to Barbados. For Example Sandles Import Every Single Item they use Duty Free so the only Benefit to Barbados is some Foreign Currency paid out in the form of Wages, Electricity and Gas.

    This Distortion does not only apply to the Tourism Sector, it applies to Protected Industries. For Example the Chicken Industry and the Food Manufacturing Industry resulting in Very High Prices to the Barbadian Consumer, (if they allowed Chicken parts to be imported it would cost Bajan’s 1/3 of what Bajans are currently paying).

    THESE THINGS OUGHT NOT TO BE. When Barrow was alive, we had THREE LEGS to the Economy, Now we have ONE and that ONE is not Growing! Therefore, I am Very Happy to read Mr. Grenville Articles where a Politician Recognises the Problems and keep bring them to our Awareness as no one else is doing it.

    As an experienced and highly successful structural engineer have you ever seen a project get off the ground without that vital financing in place?

    You have previously expressed you support for the construction of the Hyatt hotel.
    But have you ever stop to consider that there is more to a structural erection than ministerial approval, in whichever shape or size?

    Don’t you think if there was US$ 100 million sitting in some account ready to be drawn down to finance the Hyatt construction that any ministerial approval or disapproval could ever stand in the way?

    At this stage of the country’s foreign reserves health, the addiction to FDI is analogous to nectar to honey bees. No foreign money (nectar) no sweet life (honey) for Bajans like you.

    Why don’t you raise that most vital question about money for the Hyatt erection and see how quickly you would become a Barbados ‘underground’ pariah in Mal(m)oney’s book of Bajan traitors to his cause?

    DOES THAT MEANS YOU ARE BELOW ME?

    I do not or do I intend to write any article here or in any other blog especially not to please anyone who was just waiting a chance to show off!

    I will continue my usual comments when I feel like it.

    Barbados is a democracy and so far BU has been operating as a symbol of that democracy when anyone can express their views on any topic or submissions.
    Why is it that if I disagree with GP2 or his methods you have to see it that I am trying to pull him down?
    Are you trying to pull me down or silence me when you disagree with me ( about GP2)?

    I took just a quick look at one of you articles and a few of the comments and I will give you this – if you are one of GP “minions” maybe you should help him with his writings or maybe he can let you write some articles on behalf of SB.

    GP2 as a weekly editorial writer who is just trying to inform the public some of his topics are ok ( similar to those of BU’s weekly lawyer and tourism “editors”). As a leader of a politically party that is trying to make gains with the public (IMO) they are poor.

    It is people like you that if GP2 continue to listen to then will see no progress when the next election comes around.

    I noticed that he tried to bring some “new soup” in this article (no wonder it was because of our criticism), however, politically the new soup was cold – hence why the low number of supporters!

    I have already touched on the “foolishness” he put at the end.
    it is like when he tries to make a political point he just mess up his article(politically)

    Now I don’t see why you should be I here trying to defend you leader unless he is a weak leader.
    I think you would be more helpful to him if you can assist him with writing his article than trying to pull down everyone that doesn’t see “eye to eye” with you or him and let it be know.

    We all are free and free to share our opinions about any article or comments. – that’s why there is a comments section after each article.

    It seems that you are missing something. I did not start out to form a political party. That only happened because PM Stuart decided that only those in the political trenches had standing to be heard on the economy.

    The voters will have a chance during the next general election to choose prosperity for their households, and an end of corruption and mismanagement, or more of the same mismanagement and corruption that both established parties regularly accuse each-other.

    Solutions Barbados owes it to Barbados to offer ourselves only once more, because Barbadians finally deserve to prosper. If voters choose to suffer, then they will be without excuse, and I will no longer feel obligated to tolerate comments like yours every week. I will simply follow Jesus’ guidance of shaking the dust off my feet and going to others who desperately need help.

    In the interim, you have a choice. You can wither continue ignoring the substance of every weekly article and keep your remarks personal, or you can resist the orders of your masters – the choice is yours.

    You also have options of not taking my remarks personal/ ignoring them,
    or continue to take them personal and try to hit at me with ” your underhand snide” remarks – I have no master but the same one as you and I take no orders from no one but him.
    But politicaly it is good that you have a little nastiness in you. You just have to learn when to and when not to hit out with “your snide remarks” to score maximum politically points. Used in the wrong way/time it will affect you negatively like your constant bringing of warmed over soup etc.

    You might as well hang it up today and continue on to the other who desperately need help!

    Currently, the DLP which has more mass support the SB will find it very difficult to even win one seat, w hat make makes you think that SB (that is public seen as a one man’s party) has a ghost of a chance?

    According to you comment, any one who is interested in joining or being a candidate for a third party should now look to probably the UPP who more seem to be in the game for the long haul.

    This thing about Barbados will only prosper under SB and will suffer under any other party (or any of the two establish party), you may believe this to be true, to the average man it will come across as you seeing yourself as the economic Jesus which we all (including you) know you are not.

    As an Engineer and a Political Leader you must pay better attention to details…there can cost you a lot to correct!

    Relevant? – Yes

    Recently came up? – NO!!!

    This topic has been in the (political) arena for a few years now!
    As FC pointed out, the EXCESSIVE CONCESSIONS to the two companies brought it out even more

    As recent as the last budget – MAM did a “chapter and verse” about granting excessive concessions. We al know that because of that stance, Sandals (temporary) halted construction in St Peter.

    You tried to bring new soup (you get marks for that – that means you are finally listening).
