If Not Mia Mottley, Who?

It is approaching two years since Mia  Mottley and the Barbados Labour Party were swept into government in unprecedented manner 30-0  – the question forming on the lips of some – do we have political leaders/parties in waiting to rival Mia Mottley and the Barbados Labour party?

A strong democratic systems demands a robust dissenting view.

The Mottley government has aggressively implemented an austerity program  AND had a few bad implementations.

    “Did MAM promise to rescind the concessions? Tell BU what the law prescribes in terms of granting concessions and what options exist for rescinding such concessions. I don’t know so I am asking. Leh we start on some sound footing. I am yardfowl for truth, fairness and logic.”
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    If you are Not a Bajan paling cock but a real a red rooster for “truth, fairness and logic” why not seek the solution to the following enigma?

    How can you grant concessions to a ghost? There is a luxury vehicle being driven by a mirage on the road for over 2 or so years but there is no hotel to welcome and accommodate guests; not even a Sales Director to prepare its marketing budget.

    Who then is hologram behind the wheel in that duty-free luxury ride at taxpayers’ forfeiture while the working poor people are burdened with taxes on their water bills and must make monthly tradeoffs between buying healthy foods or paying a garbage tax?

    We are not opposed to granting duty-free concessions on vehicles to people who are ‘genuinely’ employed by forex-earning businesses. But these must be genuine applications in respect of real persons and contributing to the country’s forex earning efforts; not ghosts working at imaginary hotels .

    Where did the forex come from to pay for the landed cost (plus dealer’s markup) of this luxury vehicle to be driven on the country’s makeover donkey cart roads?

    If it came from the foreign exchange holdings of the person driving around or as part of the FDI injection into the project (and by multiplication into the economy) then this would shine a positive light on the decision made by the previous MoF.

    Other than that, then, the decision to grant this concession to a nonexistent Sales Director employed by a pipedream of a hotel can only be seen through a ‘corrupted’ lens and merely as a down payment towards the ‘PIP’s electoral war chest

    “Enuff”, my man the full back playing the role of goalkeeper for the “Reds”, haven’t you heard the saying that ‘a promise is a comfort to a fool’?

    Abijah’s mum was also promised “Lady Justice” will be on her side.

    Where is Justitia today if not dying in a ditch but still blindfolded after crashing into a new roundabout and with Prudentia taken to the Coverley medical centre with a self-inflicted snake bite?

    Oh you legend!

    You run the DLP business if you criticize the BLP. If you really want to break the duopoly, it won’t work through a third party. The Westminster election system doesn’t allow that. We need a second party in the Westminster system INSTEAD of the DLP.

    You should therefore focus your attacks on the DLP, for example through your cartoons or by handing over incriminating evidence to the American Embassy. Let’s talk again about a new party once you have destroyed the DLP. In the meantime you should support the BLP.

    ever since I stepped foot in the BU hallways, you have been after CGI.
    First it was PVH, and anything related to him. Then it switched to BEB and anything related to him. In between it was about any lawyer, there was one in particular who you said was responsible for CGI’s dealing with injured clients. Now you have gone on to the Directors of CGI.
    Obviously you or someone close, was denied a claim you thought should have been paid, or paid less, or have delayed the matter in the courts ad nauseam.
    Funny how so many of your posts with local people link back to CGI?

    I saw the poll that was given as a part of this post. I will urge the blogmaster that when giving such a poll, he also give the number who participated.

    The following are all equivalent to 60%: 6000/10,000, 600/1000, 60/100, 30/50, 15/25, 12/20, 6/10, 3/5

    So whilst 56% i impressive, I am wondering if it is a statistic generated by Lorenzo and two more accomplices in a group of 5.

    Please let us know the N’s of your poll, at least the total.

    (It would also be great if we were informed of the existence of polls of this type before they are closed.
    For those who would like to put their fingers on the scale, we must demand greater transparency.)

    Atherly knows his party chances of winning govt is between slim and none and that he belives to be a for gone conclusion with acceptance
    However he also knows that playing the role of dark horse gives the blp a better chance of winning the next election
    Notice more often than not his reluctance to crticise govt in harsh response to ongoing issues that affect the economy and barbadian households
