Silly Season Time Again

A short three years ago in 2018 then Prime Minister Freundel Stuart remained in office for 90 days beyond the five year anniversary of the first sitting of parliament permitted under the Barbados Constitution. Three years later incumbent Prime Minister Mia Mottley has called a snap general election eighteen months before it is constitutionally due. 

The early ring of the bell has caused tongues to wag with rumours and rumours of rumours rolling off the social media conveyor belt. The blogmaster reconciled a long time ago that political parties are in business to win general elections and this is the single consideration to reflect on when evaluating and commenting on political issues.

Every election cycle we hear talk about the need for the enactment of fixed term, campaign financing legislation etc. When the winner is announced on the night of the 19th January there will be further calls campaign financing laws and amendment to the electoral laws etc. To be expected, nothing will be done to address the issues raised by the politicians who raised them.

This week there were howls of protests from members of the public when it was discovered the voters list was posted online with personal information. The majority of Barbadians were oblivious to the fact the Representation of the People Act was amended in 2020 to make legal what occurred. What it has exposed is the lack of interest the majority of Barbadians have in what is debated in parliament. It should make the debate promised about the Barbados Constitution very interesting.

The blogmaster will resist the usual political punditry at predicting who will win which ‘seat’ on the 19th. Given the current hopeless economic state of affairs in the country, it seems a pointless exercise to expect B or D will make a difference. Both political parties have to bear responsibility for where we are today. Do not expect manna to fall after nearly fifteen years of famine.

The blogmaster and others have blogged many times on governance issues, however, BU dashboard shows these blogs record lower hits than the others. What does it say about our ‘intelligence’ as a people? 

The government you elect is the government you deserve.

Thomas Jefferson

Will average Barbadians be encouraged to seriously debate the merits of imposing fixed term laws to eliminate the opportunity for a prime minister to attempt to manipulate the result of an election? The blogmaster is not optimistic. Stuart tried in 2018 and supporters of the Democratic Labour Party defended the decision. Mottley three years into a five year term has done similarly and Barbados Labour Party are stridently defending the decision. Around and around we go, when it will stop nobody knows.

What will be the issues this time around?

    “I have come to the conclusion that these exchanges serves as a perfect distraction for govt taking away from having comments that are geared to.crticising govt failures.”

    Hmmmm…….

    Rather than stressing yourself, you should’ve ‘SCROLLED PASS’ or ‘IGNORED,’ the exchanges, SIMILARLY to the other contributors.

    It’s not ANYONE’S fault your attention is EASILY diverted from your preoccupation with Mia Mottley and the BLP.

    Apparently, you are of the MISTAKEN BELIEF that the SOLE PURPOSE of BU is to post ALL articles for discussion that are critical of the BLP, all contributions should ONLY be CRITICISMS of that political party, and as well as to provide you with a forum to spew your biased, rhetorical political diatribe.

    By the way, I remember prior to the 2018 general elections, YOU were, ‘according to the old people, ‘piss parading’ on BU, ‘just like how yuh doing now.’

    ‘Tek care yuh beak don’t get brek again.

    That parable fairy-tale of the ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ is almost 200 years old, not so.

    So reality tells us that those who suck at the leader’s nits are particularly adept at pulling the wool across our eyes: lies become truth as alternative facts are spread far and wide.

    The remarkable thing of course is that even after the nakedness is exposed there is still brazen display of the bits and nits … no shame nor regret, atall.

    “Now pass that comment on to.the managers of govt”
    Several have tried for the past many years, none have succeeded. Sadly it has remained at a low level.
    When you have one management ante up BDD$120M to ‘re-start a project’, it never restarts, and years later the Aud Gen tells us, there is a charge against the taxpayers for BDD$124M, permitted by another management, WITHOUT any explanation? And we wonder, as a former PM posited, “How did we get back here?”
    We get back here because we have systematically disassembled the checks and balances, the accountability. If it is blue…pass; if it is red…fail or vice versa. No tangible accountability, let’s just frame it in political sound bites.
    If we are D, we ask of the CBL debacle….”who in the House voted for it”?
    If we are B, we ask….”who spent the money. Not us”?
    That is the depth to which we get. This somehow becomes “truth”.
    And the debate is reduced to which persons/entities labelled B or D, benefitted from the largesse. Point fingers. Meanwhile the people of Barbados have lost BDD$124M on exactly what, or to whom, we are not sure. The AuDG cannot even get information beyond a Total number. And not one effing soul, elected persons, public management nor board members is to say boo.

    You asked a very important question.

    I AGREE with you WHOLEHEARTEDLY “we are all trying to better the country.” I also AGREE it is very important to share information with the youth and with “the concept of protecting and readying them for the next round of challenges they will face.”

    However, the SAME individuals making these comments, PURPOSELY misrepresent the facts and are among the first persons to post to BU, unproven rumours, gossip or unsubstantiated messages in ‘voice notes’ from other social media platforms, and ‘YouTube’ or ‘FaceBook’ videos……… WITHOUT first VERIFYING the ACCURACY of the information or CREDIBILITY of its SOURCE.

    And, PROCEED to DEBATE the issues therein as though they are FACTUAL.

    Now, ‘pray tell’ or EXPLAIN to me how could people engaging in such activities, believe they “have been given the divine right to guard the city,” parading as ‘purveyors of truth,’ ‘guardians of rationality,’ with some special ability to think critically and logically, when it is clear a significant part of their message is based on blatant MANIPULATION or MISREPRESENTATION of the TRUTH?

    Is this the BEST EXAMPLE you want to set for the youth?

    Is this the DIRECTION in which you want to GUIDE them?

    So, yes…… “Who will guard the guardians?”

    Your problem is that you cannot do what I just did. I told THE TRUTH! It does not matter what nasty lies you tell about me. You will not turn me into a liar.

    Lying is counterproductive. I want to be productive. I don’t want to blow up what I build.

    That would be insanity!

    P.S. You have been issuing threats of exposure for a few months now. It has not stopped me. It will NEVER stop me.

    RE: “But I honestly don’t care what the owners of this blog tolerate or what they censor. The last time I tried to do that I was told to get my own blog or to go “elsewhere.“

    I cannot understand why some people on BU, seem to believe they have some ‘GOD GIVEN RIGHT to either CONTROL or INFLUENCE the narrative of the forum. That discussions should surround ONLY the issues they WANT to discuss and the MANNER or FORMAT in which they WANT them to be discussed, thereby purposely ignoring an individual’s fundamental right of FREE SPEECH.

    I believe the best way to proceed is, rather than worrying about or wasting time trying to ‘convert’ people, engage in discussion with those persons whose thoughts are similar to yours.

    RE: “We are constantly defending the BS of the Duopoly in some form or fashion.”

    I’m of the firm belief everyone should be entitled, for whatever reason, to support and defend the political party of their choice, and even more so especially if their arguments are rational and based on facts, rather than ‘yard fowl’ gibberish.
    And, I agree with the blogmaster for allowing people to express their political opinions. You have your opinions, while other people have theirs.
    As such, I’m not going to join with anyone to castigate any person who exercise their fundamental constitutional right of freedom of association, i.e. supporting whatever half of the ‘duopoly’ he/she chooses to support.

    However, I’ll exercise MY right to agree or disagree with them, or highlight their ignorance, while presenting my arguments BASED on FACTS….. and not, as we say in Bajan parlance, ‘what I feel.’

    Many of us are aware there aren’t any significant political, ideological or philosophical differences between the BLP and DLP. But, you MUST ACCEPT that, although many of us recognise the similarities of the ‘duopoly,’ are more glaring than the differences, ‘die hard’ supporters will always BELIEVE otherwise.
    And, no matter how detailed the ‘pros and cons’ are present in ANY debate, they CANNOT be CONVINCED to engage in a rational, reasonable discussion or change their opinions as a result.

    With due respect , there is rational and there is hypocrisy and there is nothing rational about those who come here with their back and forth about the BLP and DLP.
    Like I said the direction of BU is of no concern to me.

    Additionally, you keep ‘picking’ on Donna and she has admitted having not read your book.

    Perhaps you should ASK, “TLSN, William, Pacha and Miller,” if they READ it.

    Please note I wrote, “I’m of the firm belief everyone should be entitled, for whatever reason, to support and defend the political party of their choice, and even more so especially IF their arguments are rational and based on facts…….

    ……… RATHER THAN ‘YARD FOWL’ GIBBERISH.

    The word ‘gibberish’ was used to define the “hypocrisy of those who come here with their back and forth about the BLP and DLP.”

    We’re essentially ‘saying’ the SAME thing.

    William…we go on many platforms and only a few really cater for young people to gain valuable knowledge that would help them in their personal development and even less help them get an understanding of their true history, for that you need to have entry to information that can only be found in certain places and only certain people would be able receive it, now i have access to some very ancient ancestral information that would aid the young in knowing who they really are, a lot of it had to be interpreted, hence the reason for THIS WEBSITE..

    it was not created to showcase celebrities, it was done to EDUCATE the young about what is still being hidden from them, there may be a few celebrities on it but that’s because we are all on the same page and understand what needs to be done….but it is dedicated to SHOW THE YOUNG THE POSSIBILITIES.

    Some on BU act like i owe them something, i don’t owe yall anything, no one owes anonymous people anything and it would serve ya well to stay out of my business. Blogmaster spent his resources creating the website/blog, he gets his props…..commenters who have nothing to do, need to find useful things to enrich their lives, not going to find it with me..
