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.

    For every dollar earned in tourism, we spend at least 60% of it to maintain that industry.
    For every dollar remitted by overseas citizens , it’s safe to say at least 95% remain in the country.”

    we have known for years that both dimwitted governments have been DELUSIONAL about the tourism, only their yardfowls would believe their shite..

    in saying that..i have no problem with engaging with fellow Bajans to help the economy..my family contributes tons of money to the econonoy because it is the right thing to do…but to get anymore…this dumb government will have to DISMANTLE THE EXISTING SLAVE SOCIETY….they are determined to keep in play and GET RID OF THE TIEFING MINORITIES, COW, BIZZY, MALONEY, BJERKHAM, TEMPRO, ETC, THE INDIANS, SYRIANS..ETC..who have the island in a stranglehold of guns, drug, and other crimes against the Black majority……head of which is tiefing the VAT, TAX money and Pension money from the vulnerable elderly people….not to mention stealing the land from the vulnerable elderly and their beneficiaries…who include those Bajans who work in UK and US…that gotta stop..

    it may be easier to get rid of this whole blighted governemnt because they do not intend to stop the corruption…that is very clear..

    those are the conditions..she can take them or leave them…it does not matter to us..

    I think my comment was fear comment to you. I did not call you a jackass. I just referred to the occupation you spent countless hours studying for and passed with flying colours. Not easy for a loyal lapdog to acknowledge what he is expert in I see. Now I really do not know what you mean by me being full of myself. I would think that if you look in the mirror you will see what it is that the mirror is truly reflecting. Makes no sese me telling you because you already know. Me on the other hand, I do not ever remember me changing me from the me that me has always been, although I have tone it down a bit. I know it hurts you when anyone got to say anything about your bread and butter provider. i can understand why you hold so strong to seeing Rogue Works Mottley defended. But have you notice the part where I say I will praise her and even bow down to her, if she can move with the haste in putting concrete and strigent measures in place to stop the wheeling and dealing, and ease at which people like she and the other crooks does get easy money. Surely that is worth something for you to agree with me on.

    My little Johhny saw the social media photos and thought that they didn’t appear to be very serious. I checked with a friend who spent decades working with burn victims and the following formula is used to determine outcomes. If the percentage of burns, in this case 74%, is added to the age of the victim, in this case 44 years. If that number is greater than 100, in this case 118, the victim is very likely to die. So I said to Johnny very likely this woman will die. So I was not at all surprised to learn that the woman had died.

    Anybody who has worked with burns, doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians knows this formula, so I don’t see how this knowledge could be “suppressed” by anybody.

    And besides how can anybody suppress anything nowadays. People don’t just disappear. We ALL have families who know and love us, and when we have family members who don’t come home we start to make enquiries, and if enquiries to “authoriries” go unanswered people will go to the media and to social media. Nobody in the world has the power to stop that, not even Donald trump.

    I am not saying that this is true or untrue. But since I am likely the only person on this blog who has taken public transportation virtually everyday for more than decades, I think that it is my duty to comment. And I have NEVER seen this happen. In fact I have frequently seen the opposite. Public service drivers (Transport Board, ZR, yellow buses and taxis) who go out of their way to assist those people with physical and or cognitive problems. Many times I have seen ZR drives cross the street with special needs children to ensure that they were safely on the other side. I’ve seen a Transport Board driver refuse to move the bus until a pregnant lady with a toddler was seated. You should see how quickly multiple people got out of their seats.

    I’ve personal experience as well. One day I fainted in town. Not only did the taxi driver bring me to my home, but he escorted me right into the house, ensured that I was seated, and enquired whether I had anybody at home to assist me.

    As we say in Barbados when you say one, you have to say two. Even while I would never dispute the usefulness of remittances, we all must acknowledge that those who sent remittances were sending such money to support their young children or elderly parents, and that Bajans at home, including me, provided decades of “free” childcare and elder care. I asked an economist friend of mine, how come economists count remittances, and no economist anywhere in the world count the millions of hours of “free” child care and “free” elder care. His reply was that the economists had not yet figured out how to put a dollar value on this “free’ labour. But most economists are still men, and I certainly understand that there is a worldwide problem of undervaluing, and undercounting the “free” work that women do.

    I mean how much is it worth if i look after your children every Easter, summer and Christmas vacation, and your remittances look after the children’s basic needs, but they live in my home and my cooking, washing and cleaning for them, my taking them to the beach, to church, to other recreation and entertainment. How much is that worth? If you had to send your children to a summer camp from New York City to a northern New York, how much would you have to pay? And why is that camp paid thousands of dollars and granny in Barbados is paid nothing at all?

    Why?

    We shoud not undervalue remittances.

    But it is an injustice to devalue the labour of grandmothers, aunties and siblings who look after your children, and your elderly parents while you develop your career.

    Lawyer charged with stealing

    Attorney Hilary Jeffrey Nelson appeared in court this morning charged with stealing over $800 000 from an overseas client.

    The 74-year-old attorney from Bagatelle Gardens, St Thomas, was not required to plead to stealing £347 660.96, equivalent to BDS $855 000, from British national Errol Hewitt between November 12, 2018 and May 4, 2019.

    The money was allegedly for the purchase of property.

    He was released on $400 000 bail with two sureties despite objections from the prosecution.

    The accused attorney was ordered to report to Black Rock station every Friday and surrender his travel documents.

    He is scheduled to return to court on February 18, next year.

    over the past couple weeks i find myself agreeing with u more than i like. you have made some v timely and sensible comments in this thread.

    the story of the burnt lady (may she rest in peace) struck me as odd from the outset. so i am not surprised by the findings. lots of idiots on this blog who are claiming a coverup dont exactly know how difficult it is to coverup something especially in a place like Bim.

  • @ David,

    The reports in the British press claim the lady was murdered by an intruder.

    The lesson Barbados should learn is that the Police should have made a statement to the public as soon as the had evidence that there was no intruder.

    The revelation today from the COP is going to seem like a cover up.

    Will the government be pro active and do damage control in the interest of the Tourist Industry ?

    the authorities on the island cannot be trusted…they are well known for cover ups…

    if you saw the video…you will know that they are all LYING on this woman, who was horribly burnt and ya can plainly see that something flammable was thrown on her., her hair was burnt off…….it’s like the deceased KNEW they would cover it up and she was very vocal while people were trying to comfort her..people KNOW WHO THAT KILLER IS…

    …so there is something very dirty about that whole murder.

    besides, the video was circulating so long, am sure it ended up in the hands of EXPERTS…who knew she was telling the truth, despite her TERROR….or because of it, she was so terrified…..that was no cooking accident..she said she was in BED when she was attacked…

  • Thanks Hants. i looked at it. really a waste of time except for the CoP looking like a deer in the headlights. the man really need a course in handling and speaking to the press. he read and answered the questions as though he was giving evidence.

    Marshall kinda waved him to explain more when he had already done so and MAM berated him for not answering like a politician when she really added nothing to what he said. quite disrespectful in both cases.

    MAM is a real bully in truth. there was really no need for anyone else to be there. i know most people expect and want the PM to speak but she hogged it and was in her element as she clearly was prepared and wanted to answer all the questions. whilst there was too little of Freundel there is too much of MAM

    it was quite amateurish at best but informative nonetheless. Public speaking is a dying art and this pressie showed why.

    the investigation into the death of the burnt lady seemed to have been thorough and i dont know what else could be added. there seemed to have been enough forensic and witness evidence for the CoP to come to the conclusion that he did. that they are going to investigate for closure but at this stage there have uncovered nothing criminal.

    In 1991 the National Democratic Party proposed to spend 20 million dollars per year on a youth program. Included was a “ a well staffed Business Advisory Centre to encourage and facilitate the entry of youth into the world of business”.
    (Page 23 NDP manifesto 1991.)
    Almost 30 years later we hear of a new youth set up to the tune of 20 million dollars. It means in real terms that the Duopoly proposes to spend less money on youth than The NDP proposed in 1991.
    It shows once again that the Duopoly having governed this country for sixty years have no vision.
    I challenge anybody to go and read the NDP’s 1991 youth policy and tell me how come it’s taken the Duopoly thirty collective years to come up with a youth program that shamelessly proposes to spend less in real terms than the NDP proposed in 1991.

    the british woman who had custody of the decedent’s child said the lady was cooking in preparation for their visit and police said a gas bottle connector in the house near the cooker was damaged indicating the possible cause of the fire. the fire was concentrated in the kitchen and not the bedroom and forensics also indicated that the decedent was not doused with any flammable substances.

    And 2…are we seriously giving props to Marshall and Mottley for their performance before a mic. SERIOUSLY!

    A press conference is normally a very mundane, unpleasant and dry event for the average govt official but for the politician it’s a moment to parade and pompasette… whatever the circumstances.

    For two VERY accomplished pols like the AG and PM both of whom were impressively ACCOMPLISHED public speakers even from their late teens it’s laughable to be praising them for simply being eloquently effective at a presser at this stage of the game of life.

    It is IMPOSSIBLE for a video to be circulating on social media for 18 days and RBPF did not know anything about it.

    I’ll give you an example. I don’t know if you could remember a video that was circulating on social media around June this year, in which a group of men were seen talking about revenge killings and bragging about attacking their rivals anywhere, at anytime.

    The Cyber Crime Unit and CID detectives would have examined the video to ascertain its source and authenticity.

    All the victim’s relatives have to do is engage their own forensic pathologist to re-examine the body and seek assistance from UK police to conduct another investigation.

    If the victim was doused with a flammable substance, traces of that substance may not be found because the body would have been washed and prepared for repatriation. However, signs of strangulation or bruises may still be evident on the body. The RBPF could share their evidence with the UK police

That cover up would involve multiple agencies and people and would be hard to contain. Barbados – pound for pound– may be the rumour and conspiracy capital of the world, we like um so.

    @ the Honourable Blogmaster

    Please accept this comment in the spirit that it is given.

    It is normal for any blog to become infected/hijacked by a burning topical subject WHICH THE DEATH OF THIS BRITISH WOMAN IS.

    Artaxerxes made a point earlier which, BECAUSE DE OLE MAN ENT GOT NO TIME, I was not able to respond to.

    But my friend, the Superlative Archiver summarizes the matter of monitoring airwaves adequately to confirm if Collusion has occurred as to a purported wrongdoing.

    And he has provided several links to the same SO THAT WILL DISPEL INFORMATION SUPPRESSION.

    Having said that there is something that he cannot dispel and which Piece the Legend submits FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE, See the POST here @ 8.09am on August 15 which reads

    And I quote

    “…If it were anything otherwise we would see the Attorney General Teets Marshall, Mugabe and Oblong Head Symmonds on national TV commisserating on thd death…”

    So Mugabe reads it (AS SHE DOES WITH ALL DE OLE MAN’S POSTS & ssh materials which she continues to claim as her own heheheheh) AND SAYS

    “Piece is correct, we need to issue a statement about this!”

    But, since I did not send Mugabe the script, like the ssh gave her the files, she decides to ad lib it!!

    The dufus should have done the following

    Give the COP slowpoke a script that said (a) name of party (b) incident report (c) evidence collected (d) steps in process and (e) current status/determination. MSKE SURE HE WAS TOLD NOT TO PLACE POLICE IN CORNER IN CASE ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE COMES TO FORE
    Teets Marshall was to be the party who would speak about the inter agency communications with (1) the UK government and (2) the pathologist etc.

    A statement like “investigation while much advanced have so far suggested that blah blah blah..” then shut to FVUCK up”

    Mugabe bless her Stoopid soul SHOULD NOT HAVE SAID SHY$E ABOUT THE CASE CAUSE SHE ENT NO FVUCKING POLICE!!!

    That is why the retarded Commissioner of Police Griffith was there!! Bless his simple Simon looking ass.

    Mugabe’s purpose was to

    1.Speak through the camera to the family of the victim ALL THESE MILES AWAY!

    She Mugabe, devoid as she is for the feelings of poor black people was to use her bass voice and convey a sentiment of care about how children would feel when dem muddah get dead pun a trip to Barbados
