A Freundel Stuart 2022 Utterance

Former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart was promoted to speak at a DLP St. Michael South spot meeting in Britton’s Hill last night at 7PM. The blogmaster searched for a recording of the meeting to satisfy a mild curiosity about what the former Prime Minister had to add to the national discourse. Try as we might only a 1 minute clip has surfaced so far on social media.

    i have pledged to conserve my energy and don’t comment on every crazy playing out, because it’s obvious it can go on for decades, but really, both DBLP have had HALF CENTURY to GET IT RIGHT as it relates to the BLACK POPULATION they beg for votes to get temporary immunity, salaries, pensions and their hands in the treasury and pension fund BUT THEY ALWAYS GET IT WRONG and only pamper to, pimp for and protect tiefing minorities at the expense of the majority, now they want everyone to take them seriously and got the DAMN NERVE to PRETEND they are different from each other……and want everyone TO FORGET HOW THEY BOTH SHAMELESSLY SELL OUT Black people…….really…

    the population would be doing themselves a HUGE FAVOR, as well as for the young generation, by making sure neither of them enter that parliament as misleaders ever again.

    …the lies and deceit are overflowing and have become overwhelming EVEN FOR THEM..

    indeed, am sure now the realization is sinking in that there WAS NO NEED TO CALL AN ELECTION….and was only done because of what is being HIDDEN FROM THE PEOPLE…but at least they are sure beyond a doubt that they are BEING SET UP AGAIN.

    The more I hear about Freundel on an party platform defending a “record” the stronger the urge I get to drink some Mount Gay XO early in the morning. I want it to stop. It is getting more painful. I guess another reason why i want this upcoming election to end soon

    @Tron In jest I think he knew he was a pseudo opposition leader, just holding a place until he bows out of politics or until the next election was called. So to not hurt the chances of his former party’s candidate, he went to a nearby constituency that he knew he will lose in and get a chance to leave electoral politics “gracefully”

    When one wishes his or her country well , there is a passion , that is not readily understood by those, who only look at their personal comfort level. There is a deep philosophical divide between those who congratulate a student , who is capable of getting an A+ who settled for a B- and those who see a C student struggle to get a B-.
    Too many on this blog and elsewhere want to congratulate a student with A+ ability settling for a B- and that is why they cuss those who see the greater possibilities of our country. They want their comfort level to be accepted by all and sundry.
    They see reaching for bigger and better goals as criticism or “ throwing shade “ or some other puerile description. The sad truth is that this philosophical divide is more pronounced now than it was fifty years ago.
    They have a fear of being uncomfortable, so they use some bogus reason to defend the BS that is all around them. To this day they don’t know why they are voting or what they are voting for next Wednesday. However, that does not deter them from coming here trying to analyze the impossible.
    So, they feel very good when they succeed in “ running” people from the blog or branding others as “haters”of their own country or wishing their own country the worst. Theses same people then pretend they want more “ peoples’ participation, when in fact they want people who only share their views.
    But then again they are A+ students who settle for B- everywhere.
    In many instances my country is A+ in many areas but I will continue to use whatever talent I possess to see it achieve the A+ , I know it is just as capable in achieving in several other areas.
    That’s where the deep philosophical divide is present. I know we can all do well individually and be happy but there are others who are still without the basics to really enjoy their existence. And these remain my focus. These are the ones who we want to accept poverty so that we can feel comfortable.

  • I thought I was an optimist, but I am dreading the rest of 2022. What dreadful event would make Mia think that a part of a loaf in 2022 is better than the whole loaf?

    Why should she think that 8 years is longer than 10 years?

    Can you imagine the horror that she saw coming to make her decide that a certain five more years is preferable to a certain 3 more years and then a possible five more years?

    Given our choice of the lesser if two evils, did she see herself and her party as the greater evil in 2023?

    “They want their comfort level to be accepted by all and sundry.”

    they are lost and need to reclaim their identities..i can’t help them, i put tons of information out there for 9 years that would give them a fighting chance, videos, articles, information once hidden but now available, even got a magazine they can download or read online telling them who they really are….the rest is up to them….can’t make them do anything but sure as hell WILL NOT allow them to bully or lure me into any juvenile backwardness….or continue using me as a distraction to chase people off the blog who have been here much longer than i have…just because they cannot reach their level of intellect or reasoning, maybe if they paid bettery attention to what is posted they would.

    they will never move forward until the accept and understand their identity…waste of time talking about country and loving country and don’t know who you are or which direction to take…

    lots of people on the island, which pleasantly surprised me, and around the world are reading the magazine…who wants to will, who don’t won’t…more than enuff are…the continent is gobbling it up..

    don’t know how people could watch their own REDUCED to POVERTY AFTER every election cycle maliciously so a bunch of thieves criminals and frauds could be enriched and see nothing wrong with that…am sure they would shift the blame to the wrong people, if they could, instead of putting it where it belongs on the sellouts/traitors in the parliament and minority racists…

    I suspect based on your comments, your self analysis as an optimist is inaccurate.
    You only need 16 seats to win a majority in a 30 seat house?
    8 vs 10, or 8 vs 5?
    The proverbial pendulum began it’s swing, from an extreme location, immediately after the last election. The PM is betting it hasn’t reached its center point yet. But may do so by 2023. Has she calculated accurately?
    It is all good news? The D’s, while eternally hopeful, knew the ‘next election’ was an uphill battle. Now the ‘following’ election, previously 10 years out, is only 8.5, if the PM has calculated the voters correctly. If not, the wilderness maybe reversed in 3.5yrs?

If Verla believes that having this nitwit speak on behalf on the Democratic Labour Party is a good move, then she is as naïve as she is foolish. Nothing good will come out of the DLP with a Freundel Stuart in it. Its like saying we need Donville Inniss because he is innocent or that the political class are an honest, open and non corrupt bunch. Piss poor and Poor rakey Democratic Labour Party.

  • As the election draws nearer, it seems that rational persons are now seeing the bigger picture. In my lifetime I have voted as an independent thinker. Barbados Today’s editorial and Tennison Joseph article points to rational thoughts. Here we are crucifying a Barbadian who was the Prime Minister for speaking about what he felt was right and wrong. It is his opinion while the present Prime Minister hired the man that was the face of the financial crisis and she called the worst Finance Minister ever and she is glorified as a great leader. Pm Stuart spoke about the rule of law where some police officers lost their cases at the low and high court and now this government settles with them out of court for a sum of money that will be kept secret. How is that right?

    If another ‘All is Mine’ electoral scenario should play out it would indeed be interesting to see which, one this time around, will be prepared to play the part of Judas and cross the imaginary floor called the Duopoly divide.

    We certainly cannot have such another bloated obese Cabinet!

    So there would be too many MPs hungry enough for a Minister’s salary and too willing to jump ship and play that role in the seat of the LoO.

    What about the idle Hinkson; or even the retiring Pressie who has nothing to lose but his seat?

    So what happens if none decides to jump MAM’s ship?

    Would the President- under the current Constitution and according to the ‘budding’ legal luminary KK the kid- have to step in and fill the breach of an absent ‘elected’ blue-painted LoO?
