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.

  • Greenville Phillips looking for mass audience publicity
    He and all others in the fake debate wasting time
    The SGN people already stated the debates would not change their minds
    So what this so called debate all about
    A PM trying to do what she does best hig the spotlight while using the candidates as props
    Glad reifer told he to get losr
    As for those in the media who are involved
    Mia used them also by getting them all wrapped up in this nonsense and leave them to hold an empty bag
    Poor Emmanuel Joseph leaping forward to protect himself and save face but too late Mia had already spilled the bean bag

Another brilliant point was the rip off size of houses built by the NHC. He made the point that they are pig pens with an upstairs. Are these houses really worth the size. Why censor him for saying that COW is responsible for the inferior pot holes and other road works. Isn’t COW getting and doing all the major works under BLPDLP. On crime , he mentioned the conditions under which some people live. Is it not true , that while we don’t condone domestic violence in any form, that it is a known fact that financial stress and hopelessness sometimes are underlying factors of all forms of violince in cluding domestic violence. Is it not true that schools should have a proactive approach to maintenance rather than waiting until they are so bad that we have to close them down.

    There is great merit to that statement.

    Mitchell was no ‘madder’ than the other two political circus performers.

    What about GP11’s pipedream of training entrepreneurs in 2 months who would then sell their internet-based businesses to overseas buyers to earn foreign exchange?

    Mitchell’s analysis of the problem(s) at the NIS was spot on.
    Everything that Moore recommended for improving the collection of NIS contributions is already enshrined in law.

    It’s just a matter of implementing them without fear or favour in the politically-incestuous 2×3 Barbados.

    For him to be taken as anything more than a Gearbox, he would have to work on his delivery. I am not looking for an orator but he would definitely need to improve. His delivery was more suited to a campaign platform. I don’t think he is capable of switching modes. UNFORTUNATELY.

    Monday, November 15, 2004
    85 yr old Violet Beckles produced deeds showing she owned the famed Kensington Oval, the mecca of Caribbean Cricket. Thats just one of almost 200 properties in the islands commercial hub which Beckles claims she received ownership through a will from her Aunt, Beatrice Henry.
    Beckles attorney, Dr Lenda Blackman, indicated work already begun to collect rents owed and monies paid out in the past for a number of her properties.
    The purported will, dated January 17, 1984 was prepared by attorney Frederick Smith (now Sir Frederick). Current Barbados attorney general, Mia Motley, reviewed the documents back in 1990, before her current appointment, and confirmed Beckles as the beneficiary of the will.
    The Governments Urban Development Commission (UDC) recently got drawn into the controversial situation when it was reported the UDC paid 86 million to others for property that belong to Ms. Beckles. This may require the UDC pay a second time for the property.”

  • The Debate – An Analysis.

    The debate is finally over, and criticism of the debate has already begun. Allow me to share some inside information to facilitate a fair criticism.

    The moderators assigned to the debate were David Ellis and Julius Gittens. They have demonstrated their capacity to ask relevant questions, and manage debtors with diverse personalities and agendas.

    When they later declined to participate (after the PdP pulled out, and the number of debates was reduced to one), someone had to moderate, or the debate would have been cancelled. With time running out, Emmanuel Joseph stepped forward.

    CBC facilitated the debate. The ideal situation would be for debaters to appear at CBC’s studios in the Pine, where they had the capacity to manage all foreseen risks associated with broadcasting a live and unscripted debate.

    To have six potential debaters complying with the COVID-19 distancing protocols, CBC used the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre. This was a logical choice given its proximity to CBC’s Pine studios. At a preparatory meeting held to discuss the debate, the UPP, DLP and PdP requested several changes, which were generally accommodated.

    Candidates were given a deadline to respond, so that the numbers could be confirmed, and logistical decisions could be made. Before the deadline, Solutions Barbados, the BLP and the BFP agreed to participate. After the deadline had passed, the UPP and DLP went to the media and said that they would not be participating.

    While arrangements were being made for four debaters, the PdP, who had agreed to participate, later decided not to.

    The Candidates had three different and consistent styles of responding to questions posed. Toni Moore generally responded to questions at the level of Government policy. I generally responded to questions at the level of implementation plans. Alex Mitchell generally responded to questions at the level of justness.

    JUDGING.

    People tend to judge a debate performance by both the content and delivery of the responses. Some may weigh content higher than delivery and vice versa.

    Toni generally provided reasonable content and good delivery. I thought that my content was good, but my delivery could have been better. Alex did not pull any punches on his content, and his delivery was somewhere between mine and Toni’s.

    Emmanuel Joseph stepped forward, at the eleventh hour, to do the job previously assigned to two professional moderators. He did a decent job. He asked some questions that could not have been anticipated, many of which were submitted by the public.

    We were literally and figuratively forced to answer unforeseen questions on our feet. We could not ask for a few seconds to formulate a logical flow in our heads. We just had to open our mouths and start speaking. We had to do this while appearing to be in control, and thinking of a logical flow of sufficient information in our heads, to allow us to speak fluently for 2 minutes. That is no easy task for those not used to debating.

    All Candidates who participated demonstrated the capacity to think on their feet, and present a logical two-minute argument. This was the first such political debate that any of us had ever participated in. I can understand why the UPP, DLP and PdP candidates were overcome with fear, at the thought of being put in such a situation.

    CBC did an excellent job under the circumstances. The cameras, lights, and technical personnel were not intrusive. I mostly forgot to look into the cameras, and had to remind myself to do so.

    Had the UPP, DLP and PdP confirmed their absence at a reasonable time, CBC could have accommodated the three Candidates at their Pine studios, for which they had full management and technical control for an unscripted debate.

    Had the professional moderators showed up, they could have managed the styles of each debater, and forced us to debate each other. There are many lessons that can be learnt by all parties.

    I trust that this information allows people to better appreciate the challenges of the debate.

    30 October 2020
    The Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation takes this opportunity to apologize for any untruthful, offensive and misguided comments that may have been broadcast during last night’s live St George North debate that was held at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

    The Corporation recognized that in the course of a by-election, a national political event, that commentary may not always conform to good taste and took precautions to avoid the besmirching of peoples’ reputation.

    Prior to the start of the debate, the candidates were advised by the moderator that they should not make statements that could be viewed as derogatory or injurious to any individuals’ character. This was reinforced by the Corporation’s legal advisor and senior management during the break to deprecate the earlier statements that may have escaped the protocols put in place to prevent them from being aired.

    Our legal advisor and CBC management warned one of the candidates specifically about making offensive remarks and insisted that there be no more comments or statements that could be deemed objectionable.

    If our efforts failed to contain all such offensive statements, we sincerely regret this as the views expressed do not in any way reflect the opinion of the Corporation

  • It is very good to hear thst CBC has apologise for allowing the loose canon Mr Mitchell to call persons name in a derogatory manner.I was shocked to hear his responses at times.It is one thing to be on BU snonymous spouting wild statements it is another to be on national tv doing so.I would hope he has evidence to support what he said or he could be facing a lawsuit.This should be a wake up call to you David BU for allowing your blog to be used by the other crazy looney Waru to make a lot of wild, crazy allegations which often she cannot prove with any evidence.She too like Mr Mitchell is a loose canon.

    Would you also describe the Auditor General as a “loose cannon”?

    After all, the AG reports clearly confirm what Alex the “Loose Cannon” Mitchell is exposing on your national TV!
