2020 St. George North By-Election National Debate

The decision to have a national TV debate between the candidates contesting the St. George North constituency seat has been mired in controversy from the beginning. The result is that of the six candidates registered to contest the seat made vacant by the ‘retired out’ Gline Clarke, only candidates Toni Moore (BLP), Grenville Phillips (Solutions Barbados) and Alex Mitchell (BFP) are the three left standing. The other candidates have offered excuses for not participating, the blogmaster suspects the real reason is that there is a fear to speak to the issues publicly in an independent setting.

It is ironic that the current week has seen Barbados experiencing heavy rains which must be negatively affecting house to house and platform campaigning. What an opportunity tonight’s debate offers to convey respective party messages to SGN residents while in the comfort of their homes.

  • Hal Austin,

    Norman Tebbit, Thatcher’s loony toones far right minister, was a big proponent of deporting West Indians.

    What is ironic about Priti is that her own grandparents / parents came from over and away and now she sees herself as more British than others.

    Mind you, I would not want to meet her on a dark night. Especially not near a cemetery.

  • “No matter what the international organisations do for us, we will be back at square one in short order.”

    social engineering and that’s not even the half of it, you have pretentious leaders who are making exotic plans without thinking it through and then what, their lack of intelligence shows up for eveyone to see. They are creations, not natural, a distraction to destroy…they are not their own persons, they only believe that they are. Don’t have the intelligence to know that you cannot shed a colonial system without first putting a brand new MORE JUSTICE FILLED one in place, problem for the people those in the parliament don’t have the intelligence, again, they dont have enuff of any of it to build a new system, check out the mess they made of this one, it actually worked perfectly but NOT TO BENEFIT THE BLACK PEOPLE WHO FUND IT…..

    can you see them building anyting at all out outside of their comfort zones of selling out and being corrupt…i gotta see that one if you do.

    as i see it, they only care about self, it’s all about how the system works for them, only them, they don’t factor in how it works for the people who elected them and pay their salaries and pretensive lifestyles.

    Some people understand how all this came about, but baby steps.

  • Priti Patel has cooled with age. She was a member of Jimmy Goldsmith’s Referendum Party; her father, an East African Indian, is (was) a member of the Brexit party; Dominic Raab, the foreign minister is also a second generation foreigner, like Trump.
    Just look for the similarities and you may find the answer. Priti is not exceptional.
    This is the contradiction of immigration. Look at the Africans in the Tory party, and at who is their spokeswoman on race and equality.

  • That is the problem with wannabes and their fowls…they all want to be like the Oxbridge pedigrees who were goddamn SLAVE MASTERS….when you are a leader of a black majority country filled with descendants of slaves, YOUR BLACK ASS INCLUDED…you do not want to be just like MASSA….the pedigreed in UK are mostly the descendants of SLAVE MASTERS…and have eleveated yourselves so much in your mind that you DELIBERATELY dish out the same racism oppression and exploitation with an added twist of selloutism and corruption on black people who look just like you….the people have lost billions of dollars and estates and their beneficiaries continue to suffer because of you pedigreed THIEVES….who are now just like Massa, but Massa is not now under any type of investigation..

    that’s the problem right there, that type of elementary stuff…totally escapes them, but somehow they are educated.

    .where you think the term got coined…it’s right out of the centuries of 3 or 4 ago…after they tief so much from African people, they gave themselves a mirage of pedigrees…common class thieves, just as yall are doing right now CENTURIES LATER…and ya even too dumb to realize it…and ya aint got nothing to back it up either.

    i would more claim African royalty rather than European pedigree….THERE IS A REALLY BIG DIFFERENCE….and many of us did come from African royalty….real royalty..
