Becoming the SINGAPORE of the Caribbean
Posted on by David 122 comments
The pace at which Singapore has achieved so-called first world status- in a generation- has ensured mention in case studies to be found in any management volume of standing. By every account it is a well managed country directed by a relevant strategic plan, disciplined society, adequate workforce with required skill sets to execute plans, routine enforcement of laws etc. You get the picture. It is a country serious about effectively and efficiently directing its resources.

I have a serious problem with the likes of Ezra Alleyne claiming that “we” were the framers of the Oistin treat of 1652…who the hell is this “we” in the Afrikan descended population who drafted. framed or signed anything to do with our destiny….they still can’t draft their own constitution, still don’t have a handle on anything to drive their own financial and social progress, always waiting for or paying someone else to do it….but the “we we” crowd can’t see themselves..
“The conditions of the surrender were incorporated into the Charter of Barbados (Treaty of Oistins), which was signed at the Mermaid’s Inn, Oistins, on 17 January 1652.”
Yep. A pretty close analogy. Sadly, too many of us still see the world through Massa”s eyes.
William…still applicable today…
“Ijiji na eweghị onye ndụmọdụ na-esoro ozu laa n’ili.”It is only the adamant fly that follows the corpse to the grave.” -Igbo proverb”
and the “ignorant” say that our ancestors knew nothing…
I thought the environs of Bridgetown was clean and all ready for inate change until I read this
Mia trying to convince the diabolical entities, that she is about climate change and green spaces, to get more free money mean while, independence square look stink, don’t talk about the one to the top of broad Street, by courts, nasty, garbage every where,, in the middle of bridge town, the minister of health, certainly is not doing his job, or the city representative, queens Park looking shabby too, during elections she was doing optics, but she won, so nothing, then there is the river stand, bare rot, and stagnant water, , and garbage, no where poor ppl frequent, is enhanced, or even attempted to upgrade,
They could learn the art of cleanliness from Rwanda….and how to keep PUBLIC SPACES CLEAN DAILY…the information is out there, they should do the research to find it…i have posted more than enuff information on that particular and on other Afrikan countries over the last 4 years…posting less and less about the continent.
less information is more…and available.
“Sadly, too many of us still see the world through Massa”s eyes.”
and do all of massa’s dirty work too, voluntarily, without massa asking, sewing seeds of division among each other, so there will be no hope of cohesiveness….doing it publicly too, without any shame or remorse…then complain about massa too, just for good measure..the ones on BU are famous for that sideshow.
got it all down pat in my book’s new chapter….don’t know how they expected or hoped to escape these dirty deeds being published for everyone to digest the info and know who the culprits are, by their actions…..
Start with yourself on the ignorant side. You are ignorant about yourself and how your constant self-promotion all day, every damn day mades you look like a person desperately in need of validation.
DPD said it once. You seem to be accomplished enough to be satisfied with yourself. There is really no need for your constant attempts to elevate yourself artificially and denigrate all others as a profession. I have never seen or heard of such behaviour inspiring unity anywhere.
More than likely that it runs some people off BU. Nobody wants to read that shit all day!
“the ignorant” seem to think their opinions matter, i assure you they don’t, no one cares, now try contributing something to make a difference in the lives of the disenfranchised, in Barbados there are over one hundred thousand of such helpless people…….that would be something new to draw more people to BU..
.attacking the “intelligent” daily is retrograde and seen as such…
William…i stupidly, as usual….thought with all the recent big talk on here of forming some “faculty” to rival UWI, in educational OUTPUT, we would have seen some positive advancements by now…these things do not take long to put together. Some people do it within HOURS, if complex it could take DAYS…. and only fail when the REQUISITE WORK is not inputted …
.but would you know it, after a week when they thought everyone forgot….back to the same OLD TRICKS again…
had to tell someone recently about internet parasites…
I read with great interest where a black man is asking for govt help maintaing a beautification project which he built by himself
Now all and sundry knows that if a privately owned white establishment was involved in the building of such project govt would have opened the revenue tap and allowed the flow of money to reach that white establishment

That’s why I suggested David should rename Barbados Underground, the ‘WARU Show.’
I’ll admit that her criticisms of Barbados’ political environment and race relations are often correct.
But the question is am forced to ask is, since the goodly lady believes she has been “contributing something to make a difference in the lives of the disenfranchised” for the ‘past ten years,’ how come she has been unable to “draw more people to BU?”
‘In other words,’ if it hasn’t worked for her in 10 years, how ‘on earth’ would you, or anyone, achieve immediate success with a few days?
But, Donna, why worry yourself? I’m happy she has now become a member of BU’s ‘selected few,’…… the ‘intelligent.’
Remember, this is someone’s whose main sources of information were Jacky Stewart’s Facebook page and the gossip site, ‘Naked Departure.’
And, who ADMITTED to “making up things just to make things interesting.”
Angela…ya done know it’s a decades old evil habit from those who suffer from SNSyndrome to tear down Black creativity if they can’t tief it…and that’s why the island is in this position…and will not progress until they understand that CREATIVES make progress where others fail..
.what did Rwanda ask for, not who passed the 11 plus or which high school they attended, they asked for CREATIVES….entrepreneurs……there is a reason…
And the young…another valid reason..
I posted a link to support my comment and so far the link does not show
But look how quick govt would break.up.amd mash up small farmers thriving on govt land
Rather than draw up a plan that would serve these budding entrepreneurs to a gainful livelihood
Meanwhile govt would find a way anyway to transfer govt land to the high and mighty outside interest like Hyatt at tax payers interest
Waru don’t pay the naysayers any attention
Had not for your ongoing input BU would be like a broken shoe nevertheless a shoe string lol
BU has become the lone voice of govt and their lackies
Your voice irritates them because you are not singing from their hymn book
Hence criticism Frustration and temper tantrums is their best mode of response
Don’t know how they expect any of these things to hide, there are an overabundance of platforms out there..
they don’t have control over any except what they own in terms of control….
and some really high-tech forward moving ones can be found too…..can’t even find the time to peruse all…
“BU has become the lone voice of govt and their lackies

not my style or flavor…don’t do the…. somebody own me thing, and i gotta say what THEY WANT…or i can’t survive……i burn fire on that….
too independent minded, call own shots, craft my own destiny…don’t need a fella to like me, like i need a crutch…
they love to show up primary school attributes, although people keep telling them it’s unbecoming of OLD PEOPLE……
Angela….don’t know why they don’t come clean and be honest with themselves and everyone else…..it would take the pressure off them, but no, ah guess they have a close relationship with pressure…
they would like to put the blame on me for people avoiding the site, when it’s old news what they are hiding, it’s even a running joke on FB and one or two other platforms…
the least they could do is give up the facade, the charade, before it all goes SIDEWAYS.
..but dah is dem bidness, iz dem gotta go sleep wid dah dey and wake up wid it……not moi..
If not comment on the subject move on.
MUST SEE VIDEO BY ALL BLACKS IN 2022
Chinese mine manager in Rwanda sentenced to 20 years in prison for whipping local workers
That is the outcome ya want…glad to see the beeche get what’s coming to him, one shot an 8-year-old boy in Ghana earlier this year, waiting to hear they sentence him big too….
that’s the attitude they go to Afrika with, he owns no damn minerals on the continent…none..
“In the context of transatlantic slavery, was Emancipation simply a change in the terms and conditions of bondage? Do we have or have we taken the authority to change those terms and conditions? Do we have the will to define words, the world and reality for ourselves? Or do we simply wait for and accept what others put in their books?’
powerful questions…that cannot be defined or answered accurately in a colonial context, had this same conversation on another forum some weeks ago, papers are already written on the subject from an Afrikan perspective…
“With both Africa and the Caribbean almost now totally decolonised,”
obviously not living in the real world and only a propaganda mouthpiece….
How could those claiming higher education with bits of paper from degree mills…..NOT UNDERSTAND what is really going on around them, but all ready to MISLEAD THE PEOPLE….with self-massaging fantasies and fairytales…not this time…
