Mia Mottley Has Become a Best Friend of Ralph Gonsalves v2.docx (read-only)

Prime Ministers Mia Mottley and Ralph Gonsalves

Tom Adams, the deceased Prime Minister of Barbados, must be rolling in his grave when he sees the cooperation taking place between the current Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley, QC, who like Gonsalves is an attorney. Like Gonsalves, she is the leader of a Labour Party, her close affiliation with Dr. Ralph Everard Gonsalves currently the disputed prime minister [disputed by a large section of the electorate] of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Jon Michael Geoffrey Manningham Adams, lovingly known as ‘Tom Adams’ (September 24, 1931 – March 11, 1985) was a Barbadian politician who served as Prime Minister of Barbados from 1976 until 1985.

Adams banned Ralph Gonsalves from Barbados, made him officially ‘Persona-non-Grata’ wouldn’t have him on the island. Gonsalves was said to escape the island under cover of darkness, covered in a stinking tarpaulin and dressed as a woman, getting a ride with a well known Bequia boat captain, Captain King, to Saint Vincent. 

Tom Adams

The Late Tom Adams

I suppose to be fair to Tom Adams, Gonsalves was banned at one time or another from two other island states as well.

Adams maintained close relations with the U.S. He was the leading proponent in the grouping of Eastern Caribbean states that asked Reagan to intervene in overthrowing the Cuban-backed communist regime of Bernard Coard, who had toppled Maurice Bishop, who was later murdered, in Grenada. Barbados was used as a staging point for some of the U.S. forces, and a nominal contingent of the Barbados Defence Force accompanied in the invasion force’s wake, not least to allow (as Barrow claimed) Reagan to gild the statistics. The Barbadian population was of two minds about Adams’ move, generally conceding that Bishop’s murder had moved Grenada too far, but being uneasy with Reagan’s U.S. heavy-handedness. Nevertheless, Adams’ BLP was tipped to win the upcoming elections at the time. 

Tom Adams died of a heart attack at Ilaro Court, the Prime Minister’s official residence, on March 11, 1985. He was the first sitting Prime Minister of Barbados to die in office. He was buried in Bridgetown, Barbados, at the churchyard of the Cathedral Church of Saint Michael and All Angels on Saint Michael’s Row.

Bishop and Castro

Murdered Maurice Bishop flanked by the late Fidel Castro and Daniel Ortega

Ralph Gonsalves supportive, and was deeply mixed up with the Marxist – Leninist revolutionary Maurice Bishop, who led a Cuban/Russian encouraged coup d ‘état in Grenada know as the Grenada Revolution in December 1979. Gonsalves was riding in his car and attending meetings and rallies and writing the speeches for Maurice Bishop.

Gonsalves also hitched a ride from Grenada in a USSR supply plane, which dropped him off at Barbados airport. The Russians wrote during the Grenadian revolution that Gonsalves was someone they could trust. That perhaps only added to Tom Adams’s intense dislike of Gonsalves. But the feeling became more intense because Gonsalves never forgave Adams for being a kingpin in the U.S. invasion of Grenada, which brought the revolution to an end and reinstated democracy. The ending of the communist era in Grenada must have been a significant disappointment for Gonsalves because he had always dreamt of SVG being a communist stronghold under his command. Now all those ideas were dashed to the ground. 

During my research for this opinion, I came across this, which I had forgotten. But since being written has become a classical part of the history of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. It is essential in the scheme of things; I recommend everyone to read it.

This article is spread through different agencies worldwide.  

Comrade, by a different means you have almost achieved what you failed to fulfil all those years ago. During these past years, you have faithfully stuck by, if not clung to, your friendship and affiliation of the Communist Castro owned Cuba. I suppose you will feel real success if you somehow-or-other get re-elected in 2020. For the sake of SVG, let’s hope and pray that never happens.

Well at least Gonsalves will not be annoyed by what he reads here, because he is proud of his past and wears it like a medal of honour. He has even written about it himself, a slightly different version of course. You too can read his book, The Making of “The Comrade”: The Political Journey of Ralph Gonsalves, only US$29.95 free shipping.

Remember Comrade,

The past is never where you think you left it.”

  • I strongly disagree. Barrow represented the jungle, the welfare state for the slackers and despotism. Adams, on the other hand, represented civilisation, meritocracy and all that is noble.

    Adams’ early death was a great misfortune for the island and allowed Barrow, the seducer of the people, to return, having already caused greatest disaster for the Barbadians with his mad declaration of independence.

    Had Barrow died instead of Adams, we would all have been spared much suffering. When the gods love a man, he dies young. Those they hate, they live long.

    It is true that Gonsalves wrote a column. It is rubbish to say it was rubbish. All one has to do is compare what passes for columns today with what was written back then.
    Gonsalves remains one of the most articulate writers to have ever graced the pages of the Nation newspaper.
    His columns were passionate and informative.
    This will be my only comment.

    @Skinner, yes “His columns were passionate and informative”…but they were also invariably heavily flavored by his Marxist leaning…just as Gladston Holder’s were flavoured by what I presume could be described as his ‘libertarian’ leaning.

    Then as now people actually wrote lots of rubbish opinion pieces… and then others like these men wrote very informed, intellectually ‘solid’ opinions and depending on your politics you CONSIDERED it rubbish or awesome!

    Both the men noted, hit hard with their ‘take no prisoners’ style (as opinion writers will do) so ‘rubbish’ is merely a commenter’s way of saying he didn’t rmuch like the writer…and less to do with the actual quality of the prose.

    After the 1986 election, where the DLP won 24 to 3, the BLP was desperate for candidates to run in 24 constituencies while the DLP only needed three. There was simply no place for her to run on a DLP ticket so she made the switch. There is therefore no philosophical divide between Mia and her pals in the DLP.

    Tom Adams suffered from rheumatic fever as an infant and child. He missed a lot of schooling as a child because of this ailment. My father, St Elmo Thompson, was engaged as a home tutor for Tom during these episodes. Dad told me that Tom was always “precociously intelligent.”

    Rheumatic fever very often damages the heart through repeated inflammation and the heart can be permanently compromised.

    After Tom’s death my father shared with me salacious details which alleged that the heart attack was precipitated by cocaine abuse. I have no evidence that these rumors have any factual basis, but they are apparently widespread. My father was a great admirer of Tom Adams, and he deeply disliked the cabinet member that he blamed for supplying the cocaine, so I suspected his personal agenda in spreading these rumors.

    Freedom has a friend who lives in St.Vincent and Freedom remarked to them that their PM is a Communist; their immediate response was “Yes he is, he has a big Photograph in the New Airport of Fidel Castro in the VIP Lounge. Furthermore, they stated that the Air Line that the Vincies calls the Cuba Airline, the Cargo on that Craft gets an easy pass through customs…their take was that it was Gonzales Communist Propaganda to Solidify Relations between Cuba and St.Vincent… That’s only a drop in the bucket! By The Way, the Airline was not a Cuban Airline, it Originated in Honduras and passed through Cuba before going to St.Vincent!

    Unfortunately most of our former Prime ministers that have Brought the Caribbean Region to Rumination and Devastation were Propagandised at University in the UK…Burnham, Jargon, Manley, Williams and Barrow all around the same age group, So was Castro.

    Regrettably PM Mottley has been Groomed by them all and some others like Gonzalves and her Communist Cousin “Commie Sing Song” the Barbados Ambassador to CARICOM!! What an Incestuous Cabal!!!

    Leaders have to make decisions: some kinds empower their subjects to make their own decisions. Other kinds take the power from their subjects and enforce their decisions. In the long run, the first will have a strong society, the latter will destroy their society.

    Regrettably, recent history is replete with countries whose leaders have destroyed them and their people because they did not promote self-responsibility or liberty and some of those countries are here next to us in the Caribbean. Next to other countries whose leaders did promote freedom and it is a glaring example if you want to look at it without “‘Rose tinted” glasses.

This is obviously not meant to be a long term solution and I wonder why it is being viewed as such. And as far as I know in the developed world one is also required to limit one’s travel. Could somebody tell me what is the significant difference between what is going on here and there? And why do you thing that difference has come about?

    Having said that, I think some discretion should be used by law enforcement and the courts in dealing with curfew breakers. That young boy/girl is in need of help not jail time. He/she has suffered and is suffering enough. S/he has been failed by parents and the system.

    On another note it seems that plain clothes policemen in unmarked vehicles are stopping essential workers on the road and asking for passes. This is a dangerous practice and needs to be stopped. I don’t know if I would stop in the dead of night for a plain clothes police officer in an unmarked vehicle. Criminals could easily use this to good effect.

I can chose to infect multiple others including the health professionals who will need to look after me when I am sick. I can chose to die. But right now, I chose to obey the public health officials.

    The Governor General is a sensible woman. Do you really believe that she disagrees with the instructions of her public health officials? And by the way how do you know that the GG does not have close relatives working on the front line? Do you think that she wishes to see the premature deaths of the young people in her family? The GG is not just an icon. She is a human being with beloved family just like the rest of us.

    On May 24, 2008, 74.78% of the eligible voters of Barbados voted for the party which is now in office. We, all of us, you too, have to respect the democratic will of the people.

    NO I AM NOT UNDER HOUSE ARREST, AND I DON’T KNOW ANYONE ELSE IN BARBADOS WHO IS EITHER.

  • This is for Baje and Eve

    NORTH BATTLEFORD, Sask. — Alice Grove was a 75-year-old widow who lived alone on a farm in west-central Saskatchewan.

    Her sister Eleanor Widdowson says Grove, a former nurse’s aide at Saskatchewan Hospital, was having breathing difficulties and collapsed in her home on March 28. She died in hospital the next day.

    The sisters last saw each other on March 13 when they met for coffee in nearby North Battleford.

    Widdowson believes her sister contracted the virus ON ONE OF HER MANY TRIPS INTO THE CITY.

    “WE HAD WARNED HER AND WARNED HER AND WARNED HER TO STAY AT HOME,” Widdowson told Saskatoon radio station CKOM. “But she’d get lonely. Anyone would, living out on a farm by themselves.”

    Grove’s battle with COVID-19 was hampered by diabetes, says Widdowson. Grove had also survived a battle with cancer.

    Ultimately, Widdowson says she made the decision to remove Grove from life support.

    “You have to be sensible about it and not take treatment away from a possible 35-year-old that can get better, when you know the 75-year-old lady’s not going to get better.”

  • The article is about Mugabe’s friendship with Ralph (who was dipping his laddle in the same pot as the other fellow. There was little issue about Ralphie’s communist leanings, Ralph used to talk nuff when he was younger and he was enamoured with Fidel.

    But he got run for the woman and she was a beautiful one too)

    You can be friends with a lesbian and not be a lesbian can’t you?

    Look at Ralphie, is he a lesbian? but yet he and *** is “friends”

    But having said that one of the things that the people and the sheeple here are becoming more aware of is the directions that Mugabe is taking this country in.

    Independent of Ralph Gonzales!!! Mugabe is no fool, if she offends the USA government the Bajan economy dead!

    And that is the best thing that can be said about this whole experience.

    People are waking up!!!

    Silly Woman bless her potato growing soul, has defined her FREEDOM differently that most of you here. She is content to pant and reap potatoes and therefore until that freedom is curtailed and she getting lock down in her house and cant speak to particular people cause it will affect her ration of potato seeds, she is going to be happy

    Freedom Croaker is in her usual Benzodiazepine-self so she should be excused cause she either sees things as capitalism of communism.

    Capitalism is good Communism is bad and there is nothing in between there.

    This CoronaVirus will bring out all the Despot in Mugabe because, with the destruction that it will bring, it will herald a receptiveness in Bajans for change in 2023

    It is then going to be seen that Mugabe is not going to permit other opinions and will openly effect certain actions which will bring other parties to a clear understanding of the Nature of the Person Arthur called Despot.

    Be vigilant

    Lyrics for Redemption Song by Bob Marley Old pirates, yes, they rob I, Sold I to the merchant ships, Minutes after they took I From the bottomless pit.

    But my hand was made strong By the ‘and of the Almighty. We forward in this generation Triumphantly.

    Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, None but ourselves can free our minds. Have no fear for atomic energy, ‘Cause none of them can stop the time. How long shall they kill our prophets, While we stand aside and look? Some say it’s just a part of it, We’ve got to fulfill de book.
