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.

    How about crime
    Meaning when one look upon the failures of this administration
    The reality is nothing has changed
    The poor has gotten poorer and no doubt the rich conglomerates has gotten rich with hand outs coming from the treasury underscored by govt policies
    Meanwhile the poor received food baskets and told to stay on course
    Well of course unless there is better

    He has stayed clear of the political landscape since the Democratic Labour Party’s 30-nil drubbing in the May 2018 general election, but tonight Former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart took to the platform in the constituency of St Michael South which he represented from 2008 to 2018 as he endorsed first-time candidate Kevin Miller.

    I would like to hear the rest of the speech to get some context as snippets can give the wrong impression, but I am unsure as to why the DLP would put him on an Election platform when he has hardly appeared before the rank and file at constituency meetings and this coming so soon after his electoral disaster.

    But does Freundel give a damn? I don’t think so, he ignored all advice from within and outside Gov’t circles and marched to the beat of a different drummer even when that drummer led him over the cliff….

    I am seeing some moments of poitical hari kiri in this election. One of them was Rev Atherley switching constituencies AFTER an election was called. If Atherley had any hope of winning a seat, I would think it would be in one that he ran in 5 times and won three times (albeit on the coat tails of party support) and with the two major parties fielding new candidates.
    He now goes to a constituency that has an incumbent running and little signs that the incumbent (Arthur Holder) will loose that seat.

    Allowing Freundel Stuart to speak on a platform 3 years after he was astoundingly rejected is close to another one. I am thinking that the electorate is looking for the DLP to disassociate itself from that administration as much as possible. To be fair it will be interesting to find out if he was asked to speak or he himself asked the party. If it is the latter then out of politeness having a former PM who did defeat Owen Arthur in an election as leader of the DLP .is no “kill cow” so to speak. In my mind he should only have limited platform time or it WILL be a kill cow moment. Freundel has an opposite effect on the DLP that a normal (former) party leader has on a party. Lets just say the less we see of Freundel right now the better for the DLP and all of Barbados.

    @David, I find the clip and Stuart’s platform appearance absolutely hilarious

    And so too the equally funny post re: “just like Biden now, don’t have a clue.”

    That’s a perfect connect to the excellent summary from @Hants’ “Former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is not going to impact this election. […] Those who supported him would have been glad to see and hear him.”

    I have long realized that there are two basics of human behaviour … you never apologize for your actions or you step back ask for forgiveness and then move on.

    Many politicians today are in the former camp – thus I found @John’s remarks so damn funny. … Stuart is one of those politicians.

    A story to illustrate …..

    Many years ago I wrote an article in a college newspaper that was a bit too sarcastic in it’s critique of a top politician … a professor took me to task and I stepped back and offered an apology … in my next writeup.

    Alas, another professor spoke to me directly and he too took me to task but for APLOGIZING. He was adamant that unless I did something truly wrong (which of course I hadn’t) that I should never show ‘weakness’ and back down to offer obsequious apologies.

    That of course I later realized is a mantra of the finest political treatises … the ‘Prince’ being one! … That Fruendel is the latest to embrace it in that clip surprises no one steeped in politics .

    So back to @Hants post … what’s there to worry about … he will not impact this election POSITIVELY [for the Dems or otherwise] and those who supported him are glad to see and hear him … let’s move on from him …

    One day he will speak about the mistakes he made and then practical folks can start to listen and learn … for now he is but a mild political curiosity!

    He doesn’t look strong to anybody but a few yardfowls. He looks like an idiot!

    Much has changed in the world since The Prince was written. Many people no longer see things as they did back then. The world no longer believes in monarchies, slavery, colonialism should be the order of the day.

    We can agree to disagree on that… I do see ANY rational thinking independent according Stuart one jot of impact on effectiveness of governance

    That would be madness … We over think these things too much.

    The former PM does NOT have the populist impact as for example a Bolsonaro or a Trump or even a Manley and definitely not a Barrow or Tom. He is a curiosity even among DLP supporters, brother.

    You heard the “WOW”, when he made that absurdly arrogant comment, I am sure.

    So @Nothern, I have no disagreement with the point that the DLP blithely says “the tact is we had a strong government, we did very well.”. Their arrogance as you state “escalated during their term,” to the point that as shi*** ran across the nation’s streets we were told foolisness.

    So yes we do NOT “somehow expect they are not still arrogant” NOR would we give Mr. Stuart ANY respect to inform our political decisions. I certainly would NOT.

    And @Donna, you are on your hobby horse… happy riding dear lady.

    I discussed this with you previously and clarified that Machiavelli is a seminal piece of political treatise REGARDLESS of era.

    It’s dicta have been implemented time after time in EVERY political cycle that I have seen (worldwide).

    The changing characteristics of human behaviours have in fact NOT changed what was noted in that work or others before (or since) like ‘Animal Farm.

    Realistically just the opposite is the case .: changing times have shown us just how insidiously politicians are ‘doubling down ‘ on much of what he wrote.

    Hmmm……

    I have long ago concluded, and proved beyond reasonable doubt, that you comment on issues based on what you ‘feel’ or misrepresentation of the facts you read on other social media platforms.

    Sometime during April 2020, ‘government’ announced the establishment of a ‘Jobs and Investment Council,’ which was subdivided into the following committees: Industrial Transformation, Services and the Creative Economy, Retail & Commerce, Finance & Insurance, Housing & Infrastructure, Digital & Transformation, and Trade & Logistics.

    Sinckler was invited to chair the TRADE & LOGISTICS group…. and NOT PLACED on some “FINANCE OVERSIGHT Committee,” as you have been adamantly .

    Perhaps his qualifications and experience in trade policy also played an important role in ‘government’s’ decision in inviting him to join the committee.

    Remember, Sinckler has a MSc International Trade Policy; lectured at UWI in Contemporary International Trade Policy issues; was the Executive Coordinator of the Caribbean Policy Development Centre, which is an organisation dealing with international trade and development issues and the implications for the Caribbean region; and has experience working on issues relating to trade liberalisation.

  • Hearing FJS statement on CBC in the full context really put to sleep this minor distraction. He was speaking about the photovoltaic industry advancement under his administration and how he piloted the legislation to lead to the rapid take off now.
    By the way things were hard in Barbados under PM Arthur last term and continued under PM Thompson and then PM Stuart. I survived it all by living within my means. Barbadians are responsible for these high debts as most of it is used for our conspicuous consumption. Where is the foreign exchange coming from for the importation of all these cars in these increasing car lots in communities?

    “Former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is not going to impact this election.”

    Correct. Looks like “local” politics to me and the new President is keeping him far from national platforms.

    “why was he allowed to speak on a DLP platform ”

    He is a former Prime Minister and member of the party. Checks all the needed boxes. lol.

    “If Stuart utterances have no impact why is this the topic of conversation on the ground and across social platforms?

    For the same reason we love rumour, gossip and innuendo. Fodder for the festive conversation.

    It may not have been glorious for you or for me, but I bet that we the taxpayers provide our PM’s with a pretty glorious life.
    Nice salary
    Big house with a very nice manicured garden, gardeners provided by us
    Security paid for by us
    Housekeeping paid for by us
    Utilities paid for by us
    Car and driver paid for by us
    Nice, nice pension paid for by us
    And finally a nice, nice state funeral paid for by us.

  • Freundel: Bajans worse off

    FORMER PRIME MINISTER Freundel Stuart says Barbadians were “betrayed” by the Mia Mottley administration after it took office in 2018.
    In his first appearance on a Democratic Labour Party platform since the January 19 General Election was announced, Stuart finally broke his silence Monday night, telling constituents of St Michael South, whom he represented for ten years: “I am here tonight to tell you that three and one-half years later, Barbados is worse off than it was in 2018.
    “I am also here to tell you that the fundamental values to which you have subscribed in Barbados since Independence 55 years ago have been betrayed by this administration. If you are interested in your own welfare, in your children’s welfare and in the welfare of those yet unborn, you have no choice but to go to the polls on the 19th of this month and hound this administration out of office,” he added.
    Speaking in support of his successor, St Michael South DLP candidate Kevin Miller, at a spot meeting at Reece Land, Brittons Hill, the former DLP leader said: “This is the first opportunity that I am having to thank all of you here in St Michael South for the warmth of your hospitality and the charm of your manner for the three terms I was down here . . . .
    “In 2018 you here in St Michael South made a choice, as did the people in Barbados make a choice. I believe in the will of the people freely expressed and, therefore, although it was a source of disappointment, the outcome I accepted and I waited to see what would become of Barbados under our successors in Government.”
    Stuart suggested that long-held Barbadian values were under threat from a Barbados Labour Party (BLP) administration.
    “In 1966 we in Barbados settled a set of values by which the society would be guided and on the basis on which it would be governed. We said in the preamble to the Constitution of Barbados that we were declaring ourselves a sovereign independent nation founded on principles that accept the supremacy of God, the dignity and worth of the human person [and] an unshakable faith in fundamental human rights, a belief in the family and the role of the family in free societies and among free men.
    “I am here to tell the people of St Michael South and all Barbadians, that the present BLP administration has betrayed the trust of the people of Barbados politically, socially and economically in light of those values on which this society rests,” Stuart said in a speech lasting more than an hour.
    While acknowledging his loss to BLP candidate Kirk Humphrey in 2018, he made no excuse for his stewardship and thanked his former constituents “for all you did for me when I was MP for this area”. ( GC)

    neither DBLP can tell anyone WHY they allow racism, apartheid, discrimination, victimization, disenfranchisement including THEFTS from the treasury and pension fund to take root and flourish for the last 55 YEARS….AGAINST THE DESCENDANTS of the enslaved, in the 21st century to keep the majority population whom they BEG FOR VOTES and WHO PAY THEIR SALARIES, dependent on every halfassed local and foreign minority crook/thief, yes, they are the ones still doing it, the minorities COULD NEVER DO IT WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION and COLLUSION…..were they not involved in promoting and SUPPORTING IT, it would have ENDED DECADES AGO…

    PM sends warning on ‘vex vote’
    Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley telling voters not to “stand home vex” but give her the “x”. (Picture by Shanice King.)
    Social Share
    Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has warned voters about not supporting the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) and ending up with a Democratic Labour Party Government.

    She was speaking on a platform mounted to endorse the BLP’s City of Bridgetown candidate Corey Lane on Monday night.

    In calling the elections last Boxing Day, she had said she needed the country to unite behind one leader and she reiterated that to party supporters.

    Quoting the BLP’s campaign song that instructs voters not to “stand home vex” but to give her the “x”, Mottley told online viewers and those in person that she was “breaking it down” for them.

    “You know them ain’t ready yet, but I talking about us. What I need from you, what my team needs from you, is a proper mandate . . . . We need people to come out . . . you can’t take no chances. You gine play that you vex wid somebody and end up with a hangman’s noose around your neck if the Dems win. I never see such foolishness in my life. (AC)

    The above article is one for the……ages !

    PM Mottley BLP on December 27, 2021 held 29 seats – in a 30 seat Parliament.

    Without , any known command / threat from Barbadians….PM Mottley had Parliament dissovled ( with 18 months left in her 5 year term )…..called a snap general elections for January 19, 2022…..in order to gain ALL…..30 sests !

    At least – most of her public comments on and after December 27, 2021……heralds that call .

    Mind – blowing !
