Senator Caswell Franklyn of the Opposition People’s Party for Democracy and Development Exposes a Big Problem

Senator Caswell Franklyn of the People’s Party for Democracy and Development (PPDD) shared the following email (email addresses were redacted from the email) with the blogmaster. The contents of the email is not new and there is no need for the blogmaster to be prolix except to say-  trivializing the process of law making exposes AND compromises the governance system.

We must do better.

I am forwarding this email that I just received a few moments ago.  It is informing us that there will be a meeting of the Senate on Wednesday, August 14th but it did not tell us what we would be debating.  How much later must we wait for the Order Paper (agenda).  Invariably, we will find out on Wednesday.

    UNTIL YOU CREATE A SITE WHERE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE CRIMES IS VISIBLE FOR THE VIEWING PLEASURE OF ALL BAJANS, all that you are doing is a waste of BLOGGING space.

    What you are failing to understand is the mindset of your bajan audience.

    Marches, dissenting social media campaigns AND BULLHORNS!!

    1.Marches

    What are your party’s colours?
    Can you amass 50 people, 100 people or 1000 people? Tomorrow?

  • The astute politician expects hurdles to be in place and if necessary be capable of extemporaneous speeches to counter said.

    As an aside how is it that a minister in Trinidad and Tobago can be arrested and charged by the police for stealing the people’s monies and not one Barbadian politician has ever been arrested for any misdeeds ? Are the Barbadian politicians so squeaky-clean ? How is it that the police in Trinidad can launch an investigation into corruption by persons holding high office and the Barbadian Commissioner of Police. sits and does nothing about investigating the alleged misdeeds of Donville Inniss and company ? As usual, Barbadians are observing radio silence (as though a war is going on) about this matter occurring next door, in the hope it will just go away: an inconvenient truth.

    What is the big problem Caswell Franklyn exposed?

    Let’s face facts. This type of thing was exposed by both the DLP and BLP. It has been happening in Parliament for years. I heard Mascoll and David Thompson complain about it. Read the DLP’s 2008 manifesto.

    During the DLP’S 10 year rule I heard Owen Arthur and Mia Mottley complain about it too.

    You are assuming that corruption is so rife in Trinidad that the only recourse is the one taken. Implicit in your statement Barbados appears to be less corrupt. Barbados is equally as corrupt but the corruption is swept under the carpet. The ranking giving by Transparency International is a joke where Barbados is concerned. Barbados refuses to acknowledge the pervasive nature of its corruption: A well known journalist cautioned about the affect on Barbados’ reputation of airing such claims.

    “Is it possible for Barbados to learn from the Trinidad experience and implement triggers to create a similar response sooner rather than later”.

    The response to the above is never unless. blood is shed. Corruption is endemic to Barbados, even the Attorney General had to admit so when he said that several businesses had reported that bribery was an every day occurrence in Barbados. The hypocrisy is rife here and until that trait is removed the status quo remains in place.

    There are 5 bills before the Senate. Two were read for the first time, laid and published in the Gazette since June, one since the middle of July and the other two published 5 August and laid in the Senate 7 August. The Order Paper shouldn’t surprise the Senator, the 5 bills are on it. By the way the Senator received the notice of a meeting at 10:22am yesterday, when did he receive the Order Paper? It is already on the parliament website. The government is wukkin, week after week after week and both houses are busy. Maybe the system of appointing senators need to change from selection to election, with a full-time salary rather than a paltry stipend.

    You bold yeah. Bajan politicians are masters at victimization and intimidation. I hope you got you own business and do not have to depend on government for no employment. But, but, but, you telling the truth and politicians in Barbados do not like the truth. Bajans are conditioned, programmed even, to accept the wrong and evil that politicians do. And, because of this, politicians have no fear whatsoever because everything is nicely protected under the system they develop. They control the police, the judiciary, the treasury, and a large percentage of the population through bribes, help me outs and handouts, and a lil job to keep their asses loyal. How in tarnation you expect a set up like that to bring any politician to bending knees. We, the idiots, rid ourselves of the crooked DLP and forgot that we kicked out the crooked BLP for doing shite that was enriching them left, right and centre, too. All that time, none in the BLP was corrupt. But, but, but, when we kick out the DLP, the BLP was shouting out how corrupt the DLP was, just like the DLP was shouting out how corrupt the BLP was too. Seems like we conveniently forgot the BLP wickedness and in desperation to rid ourselves of the DLP deceitful shites, we put back in the to other deceivers BECAUSE a female Prime Minister promise all sorts of things including dealing with the corruption but the moment she got the power turn it into: where there is evidence they will be an investigation. So Rogue Works wants evidence, and all the corruption talk done wid. All the stuff she had on the DLP that made her and her team talk about corruption vanish upon assuming office. Power made she sing a different tune. Ya think it was difficult for she to write off all those who owed taxes? Not at all!Think on this goodly Doc. She father owed a lot of taxes but that was not bad enough for her not to knight she father. I would think that anyone who gine get a knighthood should got a relatively clean record coupled by conduct that is not questionable. He not paying the taxes means that he is questionable because he avoided payments for years under some nice little arrangement. That alone disqualified him for any knighthood. But, but, but, not in Rogue Works eyes. You see Doc Lucas, wrong doing is overlooked by the few good things esteem sons of the soil does. Carrington did wrong and was esteem. Thompson did wrong and was esteem, Parris did wrong and is esteem. Elliot Mottley did wrong and was elevated with knighthood and still esteem. We do wrong and we asses hauled before a judge for lockup and payback. You feeling me here Doc like wuh my sweetpiece wud say? These people wicked and bajans dumb is shite. Dumb I tell ya.

    Ideally, the second chamber provides checks and balances on the lower house. But in Barbados and other small islands it is just a show. It lacks the expertise and the governing party s allowed to appoint too many senators. I doubt very much if the president consults members of her Cabinet.

    Nobody is questioning the need for the Senate to be flexible. If it is legislation is coming down the pipeline fast and furious then an offline discussion helps to deflate concerns.

    @David Blogmaster, your post re “You must ask where is Trinidad located on the corruption index and the extent to which the level of corruption now forces the establishment to respond in the way we are witnessing.”… ON POINT

    Anyone attempting to parse current TnT political arrest without context of the looooooong corruption mess of that country is playing a Hasbro monopoly money game in this real ‘I Have Bros’ world life game.

    Having not followed TnT politics as closely as I previously did I really can’t speak definitively on this recent political arrest in the Dr. Rowley led government but I suspect that your further comment/query (really) is also quite on point…

    When you noted, “Is it possible for Barbados to learn from the Trinidad experience and implement triggers to create a similar response sooner rather than later” … I hope readers here (astutely experienced and even the naive) can reflect on the fact that TnT corruption was so rife that a crusading, former Attorney General Richardson was assassinated…YES ..killed, dun way did because of his purposeful intent to name names … and that case leading to his murder in mid 90s started well over 30 plus years ago.

    I hope folks remember …that the catchy phrase Money is not the problem, the problem is MONEY (my emphasis) epitomized everything about that nation..

    I hope they recall … that for years, to start speaking and initially intone “Oh…” was bad form, because immediately it was perceived that you were talking about some corrupt act related to former govt minister O’Hallaron 🤣😂!…the man who preceded Donville’s paltry bribery mess with millions of real money…not monopoly millions taken in wuk-fah-wuk!

    He and his petro $$ corruption morphed into PERVASIVE graft and malfeasance across all aspects of goveranance…(eventually leading to that assasination).

    So when we speak of this supposedly stirring arrest of a minister in 2019 and ask what Bim’s leaders can learn…I smile (laff really)…they have mimiced our Trinis bros well and got the graft thing well practicised…a sprat here or they keeps us feeling invigotated… but it’s all really a freaking game..serious one tho!

    Anyhow, a fella like Caswell gots to be very careful, however…AG Richardson was gunned down when he was enjoying his retirement …years after his vigorous prosecuting days!

    I gone.
