Phartford Files: Surrogate Racism, Conscience and Voting in Parliament

Submitted by Ironside

After a long break, I was hoping to postpone my return to this blog and come back with a less political issue than the recent legislation passed in parliament. No such luck! So let me get right to it.

If we had any doubt that this BLP administration is NOT FOR POOR PEOPLE, that doubt was pharted out load and clear with the passage of the Planning and Development (Amendment) Bill 2020.

Can you imagine somebody borrowing three to five thousand dollars from a credit union to repair a house or even add a “water-toilet” to a house and having to move somewhere else while the construction is in progress? Move where? Into their representatives’ luxury dog houses? Up their backsides? THAT would be very uncomfortable, Ms. Caddle!

Right now, we are just very pissed!

Did we actually vote for you to oppress us? To play God? What kind of anti-democracy is this? The time is coming; is now upon us, when we are going to have to ask and answer this question with passion: How can we achieve remission of these serial sins perpetrated on the people of Barbados by this government?

Now as far as I can see, the fronting Ms. Caddle is a black woman; same Harris colour range I see in the HOA. So is this racism? No! it is surrogate racism! This is a case where one race perpetrates discrimination on its own race on behalf of another race because they belong to the same class as the oppressing race or is beholden to that class. It’s complicated, I know. But it does sound familiar, no?

Only conscience-dead, soul-neutralized , control conniving, power-hungry, party-before-people representatives would even think of some of the provisions of this law, far less dare to pass it in the lower house where they sit as paunch-bellied, fatted calves put there unwittingly by a desperate but unthinking electorate. We already know that many of them ain’t going to get back their seats. But they don’t know that. Yet!

Some of these de-souled representatives should spend some time on a psychiatrist’s couch trying to understand why they are such control freaks! Hard job because I suspect it is more African nature than Caribbean nurture. But if you have lost your soul, there ain’t much left to psycho-analyze, is there?

But we get it! Hotels are in the dump, so we “have” to give them business! Architects can’t get million dollar work so cut out the small draftsman who charges on average $800 – $1,100 (as against about $6000 on average by architects) to help you meet TCP regulations.

I have a few questions for these architects; why wunnh doan get up off wunnah lazy arses and market wunnah services across the region? (a few do by the way). You really think you can become millionaires in Barbados by exploiting membership in or connections to a party? You think we foolish? You really want to charge a man or woman with some tenantry land $6000 to design a simple, no frills bungalow? Is he or she supposed to borrow that too? Dear God!

And just when you think some kind of investment commonsense would prevail in Barbados, we have Hyatt. Only idiots would think that Barbados needs more hotel rooms. A load of speculative crap! That is what I love about covid-19! Showed up all the shitty thinking about more hotel rooms, brands etc!

Hyatt is not about hotel rooms. It is about property transfer to the already propertied and the creation of an opportunity to rub backs, massage palms and God knows what else! And well correlated with this Planning and Development (Amendment) Bill 2020. But, no real change in the structure of the economy!

The economy was in a tail spin even before covid-19 so the government has got to divert attention from the fact that it has no real programme for creating long-term jobs, despite all the high-level consultative meetings and covid-19 rhetoric inspired by a WHO-Chinese Communist Party conspiracy.

All of this comes after sending home several thousand civil servants as part of an IMF agreement which the electorate agreed to with both eyes open! And who were the first casualties? Women: the same “mesmiated” women who more than likely will be the ones repairing or improving their homes. What a fiasco!

Excellent attempt at bull shitting, all around, though!

But we are thankful for the brave battle fought by Caswell Franklin, the PDP and independent senators. Guys you did the best you could. Now that the government knows that we didn’t grow up stupid under the trident, here is what it needs to do:

REPEAL THIS BLASTED DIABOLICAL BILL! NOT PUT IT ON HOLD, MS. CADDLE!
Please show us that democracy in this country is not dead! If you “care” about democracy, that is!

But here is what the people themselves must do for themselves going forward: keep tabs on the voting patterns of its representatives. This pharticidal, farcical excreta about “party first” must stop. Since we can’t recall OUR representatives we need to pressure their tails. Poor people should know whether representatives like Cynthia Forde voted for this bill. Having positioned herself as a champion of poor / elderly people, voting for this bill wouldn’t make sense. Our representatives need to vote with their consciences; if they have any left!

The media – including this blog – must now do its share and post the names of those who vote for and against a bill. As well as those who were conveniently absent themselves for the vote. This is not privileged information. It is the people’s information. It is a logical right of citizens in a democracy. This government pays EACH minister $17,000 plus perks per month from the tax payer’s purse. Thousands have lost their jobs! What poetic injustice! Time to yank the ropes on the fatted calves.

I repeat: REPEAL THIS BLASTED DIABOLICAL BILL!

    A lapse in judgement

    THE CORONAVIRUS pandemic has been having a telling impact on this country and may be blamed for some of the crazy and damning things that have been happening. Such has been the case over the past week given the many errors of judgment in the public domain.

    Minister of Small Business, Entrepreneurship and Commerce, Dwight Sutherland made a careless blunder when he promised new car dealers to “level the playing field” given their complaints about being undercut by used car importers.

    The public’s response was swift and condemnatory.

    If he has his ears to the ground he would know the public feels, whether rightly or wrongly, the Government is siding with big business, maintaining and protecting the status quo while small businesses struggle. Mr Sutherland should have been conscious of how the public would react and interpret his comments.

    Given his portfolio Mr Sutherland must understand the plight of struggling entrepreneurs who make significant contributions to employment, taxation and meeting consumers’ needs.

    He must also be aware of the public’s desire to get the best prices to stretch their dollar in an environment with an unprecedented number of people unemployed and struggling while trying to cope with an ever-rising cost of living.

    Mr Sutherland needs to

    explain to the country exactly what he means.

    His parliamentary colleague Mr Neil Rowe finds himself embroiled in a public controversy with a former landlord over the payment of rent for a property he used until recently as his St Michael North West constituency office at Deacons. It is now Mr Rowe’s word against that of the disgruntled landlord who has gone public with his take on the matter.

    This is embarrassing since the payment of the rent for an MP’s constituency office should never be enmeshed in any dispute based on how the long-established and organised system for parliamentarians is supposed to work.

    This is not a nine-day wonder and Mr Rowe should not expect the issue to blow away. He has a duty to the constituents of St Michael North West and by extension the Barbadian public, to outline the facts by providing the evidence to show that he has been doing right at all times.

    The biggest bungle, however, was by the Government with its Planning and Development (Amendment) Bill 2020which threatens entrenched cultural traditions. The requirement for a homeowner to obtain an occupancy certificate from the Planning Department before occupying their home after renovation work has been completed undermines the entrenched Barbadian way of phased construction.

    There is absolutely no surprise that the public’s reaction was overwhelmingly

    condemnatory.

    This terrible oversight about the way home improvement has been successfully done in Barbados to enhance people’s livelihood will be seen as an effort to hinder the poor and marginalised from improving their standard of living. The Government needs to explain and if necessary, apologise.

    These gaffes are hiding in plain sight. COVID-19 should not cause us to make such terrible misjudgements.

Fancy structures built for off shore entities, homes, hotels,factories are built and supervised by architects to international standards with appropriate quality controls. The developers of these structures know that Barbados codes/standards are willfully lacking and they are about protecting their investments. The government developed ” dog houses” are the ones that suffer.

    Codes themselves tend to be more descriptive, than prescriptive. Any ‘standard’ is usually referenced, from a recognized authority.(ASTM-CSA-UL etc etc) Generally ‘building codes’ seek to address Safety-Fire/Structural/Usage, Health-Indoor conditions/Sanitation/Noise/Hazardous materials.
    I “think” the interpretation of occupancy during renovation is being mis-interpreted. The reason to ‘block off’ areas under construction is usually safety. And occupancy would only relate to those areas. Installation of a plumbing fixture is not a reason to prohibit occupancy. Nor would reshingling, window replacement (unless the opening was being left unblocked for a period) etc etc.
    The end story is always the same….everybody is always trying to ‘get around them’, usually for cost. Like customs duties.

    “Show how building codes elsewhere are irrelevant to Barbados. ”

    Wily does not believe Building codes elsewhere are NOT RELEVANT, he does believe Building codes are an essential under the LAW and must be enforced rigorously. Not having a building code proclaimed as a law and enforced results in corruption and under the table graft to politicians, civil servants, developers to name a few. Take the recent Brittons Hill apartment collapse into a know sink hole, who financially benefited, present prime minister for one.

    Does Wily have to explain more clearly or are the red underwater blinkers showing.

    If Barbados adopted any one of numerous first world jurisdictions building codes and proclaimed them into LAW and enforced same then it would be a starting point. Wily has numerous Contractor friends in Barbados that maintain working to a set building code is not practical, well Wily fully knows that a lot if these same contractors would suffer financially under a enforced building code, they’d no longer be able to bribe their way to increased profit levels.

    A real business tycoon and hotel mogul, indeed!

    What the unemployed workers in the construction and hotel sectors would like to see materialized is the Blue Horizon [of Hope] project.

    Once that brand new renovated hotel is back in business he can direct his guests to wine and dine at his Premier ‘new’ restaurant in the Gap instead of Chefette and the Oistins Bay garden.

    Moreover, he can ‘bus’ his long-stay visitors from the Lighthouse on the Bay to his Bajan hideaway in St. Lawrence Gap for their evening meals.

    Why not ask him to put some of his US$ hoard he has stashed away for the Hyatt erection into a replacement for LIAT?
    Then you will know that the current captain of Bajan industry really means ‘Business’.

    All Mal(m)oney has to do now is to wait to be crowned Emperor of Bim Business Inc to replace the pale-skin COW about to kick the bucket while the blacks on the modern-day plantation called Bim continue to beg for reparations in order to make Indians and Chinese their new ‘property’ owners.

    Do black lives really matter in Bim when the blacks continue to be mere hewers of tourist wood and carriers of restaurant and hotel water?

    Your question is understandable. The bedrock of civilisation within the Americas was probably built on those of African descent. We just need to suspend our cynicism. Sadly, many countries find it difficult to reference Africa as a root to their own development and civilisation. This is why it is so important that we revise our education system within the Caribbean.

    Nobody ain’t disputing or denying what you say. But it AIN’T GOT NOTHING TO DO with how Hogging the Blog trying to mislead BU.

    Nobody ain’t say nothing bout international human rights laws apply to everybody else pun de earth EXCEPT Africans. Uh mean, after all, Hogging the Blog say INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS, so it would be obvious that the RIGHTS APPLY TO EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD.

    Leh we look at Africa. The white South African ethnic group descended predominantly from Dutch settlers and white Zimbabweans are of European ethnic origin. Although these white people took over and developed the two countries and call themselves white South Africans and white Rhodesians, the ORIGINAL Africans they FOUND LIVING THERE, are INDIGENOUS to BOTH countries respectively.

    We all know how dem white people treat Black people in those countries and VIOLATED their HUMAN RIGHTS. So yuh could see how the international human rights apply to those INDIGENOUS Black South Africans and Zimbabweans. Yuh could even look at what the Europeans do with the Native Americans of the USA. They were indigenous to the USA, the English and other European settlers violated their human rights and so the International Human Rights Laws equally apply to them too.

    Let we come close to home. You know that they got a Carib Village in Dominica? You know that although the Europeans “settled” the island and African descendants ruling it now, the Caribs are the INDIGENOUS people of Dominica AND NOT the Africans who were taken there as slaves? You know that the Caribs have a representative in Dominica Parliament?

    Hogging the Blog saying that Africans are indigenous to the Caribbean is NOT TRUE, it is a SHYTE ARGUMENT and because somebody say so, she interpret it to mean nobody ain’t want international human right laws to apply to Africans is EVEN MORE SHYTE.

    “Landlord locks out tenants for unpaid rent 

    “- by Anesta Henry July 7, 2020
    Tenants of Pyramid Mall at #22 Swan Street, were upset today after they attempted to enter the building and realized that the lock on the main door had been changed.

    They complained that landlord Ibrahim Noumeh took the unfair decision to change the locks because they refused to pay rent for the two months the country was on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    However, after agreeing to re-open the mall after a meeting with police and some of the tenants at his Broad Street store, Noumeh told members of the media that some of the tenants owed him as much as six months’ rent. He noted that he tried several ways to get his monies from them, including notices, phone calls and face-to-face conversations.

    At one point, Noumeh and the tenants exchanged strong words and the police had to take steps to keep the situation under control.”

    After their semi-physical manumission the blacks were given the right to hear and read from the slave version of the KJV.

    According to our BU racist John, if not for the edifying impact of the white Quakers on those savages from the dark Continent black people would still be slaves today.

    It seems the ‘educational’ impact of the Quaker has been woefully ineffective since the vast majority of blacks (in Barbados for sure) are still mentally enslaved.

    Why would an omniscient God endow people living near the equator with black skin- the largest (and most protective) organ on the human body- unless it was to serve a vital purpose for their survival?

  • yes folks, in case some of you did not know, the minority crooks buy their merchandise from suppliers in other countries and then OVERCHARGE for buying from them…all in their plot to keep you oppressed….and the rats in the parliament make sure you cannot do the same by SABOTAGING YOUR EFFORTS to be able to buy at prices that will help you make MAXIMUM PROFITS….stop buying your merchandise from minorities, go STRAIGHT TO OVERSEAS SUPPLIERS…they just want to get PAID…..they are only interested in ONE COLOR…GREEN…

    if la basura in the parliament continue to collude with them as they have done FOR DECADES to hold up your goods in the port so you ca[‘t sell anything, as they are known to do…EXPOSE THEIR EVIL ASSES everywhere…

    “Today has been designated as Blackout Day. The day has been billed as a day of solidarity in America where not one Black person in America spends a dollar outside of businesses owned by Black people.

    “This movement is an awakening of the national consciousness of Black people in America and abroad.” The website reads, “We need economic solidarity in America amongst all Black people unequivocally.”

    “In order to break free from the chains of financial servility, we will organize days, weeks, months, and years if necessary when not one Black person in America will spend a dollar outside of our community.”

    Do you really think that this reparations controversy is some recent matter on the ‘Black Lives matter’ agenda?

    Calls for reparations have been around for some time with the UK itself being the epicentre and black people of Caribbean backgrounds at the forefront of the movement going back to the 70’s and to which Hal Austin can attest.

    West Indian politicians and their gophers like Beckles (as in the case of the Mutual affair) are just there for the beer.

    You can ask the Rev. Guy Hewitt for his views on the reparations debate.

    The UK government has no intention of settling any claims for reparation in cash.

    Let’s settle for some education and health infrastructural projects.

  • This is TRENDING on FB…something else for the leaders to be embarrassed about in the 21st century, maintaining a colony using the majority population’s own money, the people whom you oppress.

    The Revolution is a separate thing.

    Traditional Colonialism

    A Catchphrase clip has resurfaced for its out-of-touch description of Barbados during a prize announcement. The question is, is the description really out – of -touch?

    The video shows the classic game show’s host, Roy Walker, telling a contestant they have won a trip to the Caribbean island.

    As scenes of the luxury resort are shown, a voice-over announces: “Tonight, our lucky winner will have a chance to celebrate on Barbados, a tropical paradise, combining rugged cliffs and gentle Caribbean surf, traditional colonialism and more relaxed pursuits.”
