Trump Then Boris

It never fails to amuse the blogmaster when following international news- as his his wont[- to wonder how two buffoons were able to attain the heights of political office in their respective lands. Perhaps somethings are not meant to be understood and should be dismissed as the improbable made possible.

  • Yeah it will!!

    Election run with Brexit as its central theme is equivalent to a second referendum.

    Whoever wins can claim the first referendum was clear evidence of support, OR it wasn’t!!

  • Boris Johnson could soon be forced to resign as prime minister and make way for Jeremy Corbyn

    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is quickly running out of options after opposition parties agreed to veto his request for an October election.
    The agreement means that Johnson is likely to soon face a choice between breaking his promise to take Britain out of the European Union by the end of October or stepping down as prime minister.
    Johnson’s resignation would leave opposition parties the opportunity to appoint a caretaker prime minister who would be charged with delaying Brexit before calling a general election.
    Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

    Boris Johnson could soon be forced to resign as prime minister. Here’s why.
    Johnson became prime minister in July on a promise of taking the UK out of the European Union on October 31 with or without a deal.
    But this week that plan collapsed after opposition members of Parliament passed a law designed to force Johnson to seek a three-month delay to Brexit.

    I like to watch what politicians actually do!!!!!

    Doesn’t trying to avoid an election at all costs say that the politicians who want to avoid it are afraid of the outcome?

    Boris Johnson is saying bring it on!!

    Quite possible he is wrong and will lose but he has not gone to inordinate lengths to get elections to happen as have his opponents!!

    There were 3 million extra people who no one can say anything about that turned out to vote in Brexit!!

    How they voted is a mystery!!!!

    .https://www.bbc.com/news/election-2017-39922798

    So what was the turnout in the 2017 election?

    Less than Brexit, 69 % vs 72%!!

    Result was a hung parliament.

    If I was an MP who supported remaining in Europe I would be afraid of that extra 3%!!

    Parliament might cease to be hung and the Brexit lot could be in control!!

    Maybe that is too simple an analysis and I have not really been following things in the UK!!

    The electorate may not be actually “split down the middle”!!

  • If you look at the 1680 census you will see the women who owned land were mainly if not all widows.

    I say mainly because I have not gone through all the parish returns.

    But from what I have looked at all of the women who owned land were widows.

    In fact, the second largest landowner in St. Thomas was Widow Farmer, the relict of Samuel Farmer.

    She owned more than 300 acres.

    That would be (surprise surprise) Farmers and other lands.

    Quaker women were capable so being a widow was not an impediment as they had plenty ability and were treated atleast as spiritual equals.

    In fact two of the first Quakers to arrive in Boston in 1655, via Barbados, were Mary Fisher and Ann Austin, perhaps an ancestor!!

    Mary Fisher, after she was whipped and expelled from Boston, travelled alone to Constantinople to convince the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire of the Truth.

    Equal treatment of women was a no no in that era and was as heinous as the religious beliefs they held!!

    You will also find that widows often did not stay widows long.

    When they remarried often they and their new husbands worked out a legal agreement, forerunner to the prenuptial agreements of today where their children were protected.

    Sometimes their husbands imposed conditions in their wills to protect their children in the event of remarriage.

    Once a woman married, any property she owned became subsumed in her husband’s.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coverture

    The Victorian era saw the passage of the Married Women’s Property Act.

    That was of course after slavery.

    You will find Quaker women at the forefront of women’s issues!!

    Here is a link to the first anti slavery convention.

    You can see from the names of women in this link they were formidable and many Quakers!!

    Womens rights as well as the abolition of slavery are both linked to Quaker thinking and beliefs!!

    One last thing before I go back on thread.

    Until the Victorian era, it is unlikely there will be many single women who owned property in their own right for the simple reason they married young.

    The land would then have appeared in their husbands’ name unless they were widowed.

    A bequest to a female in the next generation, child or niece would have often been to her as a married woman.

    Sometimes the bequest was made in such a way that her husband could not touch the land.

    If she wasn’t married and under 21 (sometimes younger by a few years) the bequest took effect when she married or when she reached age 21.

    Most women married before they were 21.

    Until she reached 21 or married the property remained the property of the estate of the testator.

    Single women could buy land but in most cases in the rural parishes, they acquired land through a bequest.

    Back to Brexit about which I know nothing!!

    Here is how I read the turn out figures of 2016, the referendum and 2017 the election of a hung parliament.

    Whichever party offers the electorate what it wants regarding Brexit will win in a landslide.

    Three percent will tip the scale!!

    You could form a party, call it Hal Austin and his Associates (HAHA for short).

    If your party offered the electorate what it wanted, you would win in a landslide.

    If Boris and his party gets the offer right, they will win in a landslide.

    The only way there will be a hung parliament is if all parties offer the same thing …. and then I suspect the HAHA party would fall by the wayside!!

    Got it read it!!

    You forgot one right attaching to land ownersip during slavery and beyond!!

    That right attaching to property ownership which men had but not women was the RIGHT TO VOTE.

    Even free men of colour who owned land had the right to vote perhaps a century before women of any colour who owned property could.

    Women who owned land got the right to vote in 1918 if memory serves me right, end of WWI.

    If you look at the earliest suffragists you will find many were Quaker.

    Universal adult suffrage only came into being in 1951 … again, if memory serves me right …. where the qualification of land ownership was removed.

    Today we take it for granted.

    You asked me about ownership at the time of slavery not emancipation so I gave you what I had found in 1680.

    That 1680 census is important because it gives a snap shot of ownership of land, slaves and servants, both bought and hired around the end of the first generation of plantation slavery.

    Within the 28% of women who collected compensation after emancipation would have been free negroes and free mulattoes like Sarah Ann Gill for example who would have been a widow.

    I had an ancestor who was freed sometime in 1802 and produced 10 children with the owner of Burke’s Plantation.

    Her name was Mary Ann, she took the surname of the owner of Burke’s Plantation, Robert Cooper Ashby.

    She made returns between 1817 and 1834 for the slaves she owned and was no doubt compensated.

    Here’s the thing with Burke’s Plantation.

    It belonged to Mary Ann Burke up to 1793 when she married Robert Cooper Ashby. They had one son who died in 1821 without issue as far as I can determined and single.

    Burke’s Plantation became subsumed with the property of RCA which wasn’t much at the time of marriage.

    I suspect it was added to during the marriage.

    Mary Ann Ashby (nee Burke)… the wife …. died I believe in 1826.

    In 1839 when RCA died, he left Burkes, then 310 acres and Brittons Plantation to Mary Ann, the former slave, a single woman who had never married but produced 10 children with RCA.

    Her 10 children were also included in the bequest.

    She died c.1841.

    Burkes ultimately was sold by her surviving children (male and female) in the 1870’s.

    She could never vote, nor could her female children even though they owned property and would have been qualified to vote had they been men.

    Of the 192 persons in the census of 1680 for St. Thomas, there were 28 widows, 2 of whom owned no land.

    In all 6 persons owned no land.

    So 26 widows out of 186 landowners!!

    Percentage wise that would be about 14%.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Got to be careful with that % because many married women came to marriage with slaves who became considered the husband’s property.

    So it is quite possible that in reality women owned far more than 28% of the slaves at emancipation in Barbados.

    It is just that at emancipation, pre – Victorian era, the law recognized their property as belonging to their husbands!!

    So their husbands collected the loot!!

    It is possible to get a more accurate figure by going through the returns on which the compensation was based and looking to see what slaves were owned by husbands by virtue of marriage!!

    There were some 600 free negroes and free mulattoes who were compensated and many of them would have been single women!!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Married_Women%27s_Property_Act_1882

    “English law defined the role of the wife as a ‘feme covert’, emphasizing her subordination to her husband, and putting her under the ‘protection and influence of her husband, her baron, or lord’. Upon marriage, the husband and wife became one person under the law, as the property of the wife was surrendered to her husband, and her legal identity ceased to exist. Any personal property acquired by the wife during the marriage, unless specified that it was for her own separate use, went automatically to her husband. If a woman writer had copyright before marriage, the copyright would pass to the husband afterwards, for instance. Further, a married woman was unable to draft a will or dispose of any property without her husband’s consent.[4]”

    Conclusion: Let the opposition struggle for another two years. Then we should close the Senate as a retreat for the opposition. We must also drastically reduce the number of constituencies in order to merge rebel strongholds such as St. John with other parishes closer to the government. According to my calculations, we can tailor the constituencies in a way that the opposition is permanently eliminated.

    “A person directly involved in the discussions said that the removal of the Russian was driven, in part, by concerns that President Donald Trump and his administration repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.”

    REALLY!

    ‘The decision to carry out the extraction occurred soon after a May 2017 meeting in the Oval Office in which Trump discussed highly classified intelligence with Russian [officials …] The intelligence, concerning ISIS in Syria, had been provided by Israel”

    This is astonishing that a news company would so cryptically accuse a sitting President of possible national security crimes (treason ?)…or is it astonishing that the Intel services even acted as reported for the reasons as noted …

    and they shall be one flesh; that is, “they two”, the man and his wife,shall become one flesh.”

    IT IS MUCH BETTER IF BU BRIMBLERS WHO ACT AS IF THEY KNOW IT ALL SEEKING TO PONTIFICATE ON SCRIPTURE TO FOLLOW THIS BASIC RULE

    WHEN THE PLAIN SENSE OF SCRIPTURE MAKES COMMON SENSE, SEEK NO OTHER SENSE; THEREFORE, TAKE EVERY WORD AT ITS PRIMARY, ORDINARY, USUAL, LITERAL MEANING UNLESS THE FACTS OF THE IMMEDIATE CONTEXT, STUDIED IN THE LIGHT OF RELATED PASSAGES AND AXIOMATIC AND FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS INDICATE CLEARLY OTHERWISE.

    SEEK THE PLAIN, LITERAL MEANING OF THE SCRIPTURES

    The sum and substance of this most important rule is that one should take every statement of the Scriptures at its face value, if possible.
    The following is an analysis of the adjectives “primary,” “ordinary,” and “usual.”
    “Primary” emphasizes the original, inherent idea in the term.
    “Ordinary” and “usual” are practically synonyms, especially in this definition, “usual” being employed for the sake of emphasis.
    “Literal” is used to emphasize the thought that every word must first be taken literally as expressing the exact thought of the author at the time when it was used; and one is not to go beyond the literal meaning of the Scriptures unless the facts of the context indicate a deeper, hidden or symbolic meaning.

Their simplicity is only camouflage, so that the opponent is careless and weighs in safety. I remind you here of Trump’s statement before the presidential election that he didn’t need digital assistance. It was not until much later that Cambridge Analytica came to light.

    I wouldn’t say that about Mariposa. Simplicity and trickiness are fundamentally different. I only know one cunning DLP official who has his own tricks, that’s Donville. He obviously learned that from Thompson.

    @John September 8, 2019 9:22 AM “Bottom line… Parliament is thwarting the will of the people!”
    How do you know this?
    Have you or anybody else asked the people recently?
    What if the people have changed their minds in the last 3+ years?
    For example didn’t the people of Barbados vote one way in 2013 and another way in 2018?
    People change their minds every single day.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    By your logic, Brexit should have happened in 2016 and Britain should be out.

    The question for a new referendum now would be … rejoin or not?

    Brexit was the will of the people and it therefore was thwarted because Britain remains in.

    In 2013 the will of the people was not thwarted

    … neither 2018.

    We ended up with a mock Government!!

    Was the creation of a mock Government the will of the people?

    Course not!!!

    For @ TODAY, the Opposition is SENATOR CASWELL FRANKLYN!

    And you have specifically focused on him!

    That my man, IS A STRATEGIST OF GREAT WISDOM.

    Its like how Mugabe HAS SILENCED JUSTICE JEFF CUMBERBATCH forever, with Cecil McCarthy and Christopher Birch and others BY TAKING THE BEST VOICES OF THE VERBAL DISSENTERS and promoting them to OBSCURITY!

    While all of we sheeple COME TO BU and congratulate THE SILENCED VOICES.

    Yet the rank and file idiots here on Barbados continue to focus on Trump and Boris WHILE THEIR EYES ARE SHIFTED FROM THE PRIZE OF DICTATORSHIP.

    Notice how the article on THE DICTATORSHIP STYLE OF MUGABE MOTTLEY WAS CLOSED

    No Prime Minister is God. Every Prime Minister of Barbados has lost elections (except maybe some of those who dropped down dead on the job, and sadly that has been way, way too many. All of our senior officials need to take much better care of their health) because IT WAS THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

Imagine the obesity, imagine how socially dysfunctional children would become if they rarely get the opportunity to see anyone except their parents and sibling.

    Look we need a decently functioning public transportation system. A system that functions FIRSTLY in the BEST INTEREST OF THE COMMUTERS, a system that is safe, reliable, clean and of reasonable cost. And yes the taxpayer will have to chip in something, and why not? Decent public transportation is a public good. We pay for policing/security, we pay for immunizations, for education because these are good things that should be available to as many people as possible. The Transport Board may never make a profit (Does the Royal Barbados Police Force make a profit? Should it? Do public elementary schools make a profit? Should they?) but the Transport Board can, MUST become reliable, safe, clean, and of reasonable cost.

    This is another job I expect Auntie Mia to get right. If she does she will have my vote in ’23. Fah sure.

    Bolton was a ‘reckless’ war hawk when he started this last govt advisory stint and he still is a reckless war hawk, so big deal. That he is gone is actually a GOOD thing!

    However, this POTUS has now gone through THREE Security Advisors in this his first three years…is on his SECOND Sec of State , THIRD SecDef, THIRD Sec of Homeland Security, SECOND Nat Intel Chief, SECOND FBI Director, SECOND NSA Director etc, etc…That is freaking ridiculous!

    At this time of world crisis that he is arguing so vehemently with his team leaders of foreign policy and national security is beyond bothersome …that he also trusts the word of the Russian President -who is sworn to curb US world supremacy – over all those folks is absolutely frightening….so big deal about Bolton’s resignation or termination.

    The real and serious concern is the man in the WH.

    Incidentally, we talk often about how president Mia corrals her Ministers and top civil servants to do her bidding but the current episode in US of How the Weather Blows is instructive of the abusive power of a national leader!

But just before noon, Trump stole his thunder, announcing in a terse tweet that he had fired his third national security adviser in a row. “I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the administration,” Trump wrote. “I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.””

It shows how local governance positions can be influenced by what happens over the pond given our effort at following – if pseudo – the Westminster governance model.

It is obvious to anyone familiar with the Westminster model of government. But, of course, it must come from white society to be legitimate. It is the Bajan Condition.
    Same thing at present. The Mottley government, with its 29/1 majority, frequently ignores parliament in policy-making. Parliament is sovereign, not the Executive, or prime minister.
