Prime Minister Mia Mottley Named in Top 100 Most Influential People of 2022

Congratulations to Prime Minister Mia Mottley for being recognized by TIMES Magazine as one of The 100 Influential People of 2022. Based on reports the rationale for recommending Mottley for the award was penned by  Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, director-general of the World Trade Organization.

The hope is that Mottley will be able to leverage her burgeoning global brand to improve regional and domestic economies. In recent times Barbadians have not had many high points to celebrate, the recognition of one of our own is a step in the right direction and should assist in bolstering bajan pride which took a hit in recent years.

    Last time I saw a hare in a Barbados ploughed ground was in the 1990’s.

    Not a problem now, no rabbits to get it.

    So no natural reservoir.

  • Based on what I’ve read, the “100 Most Influential People – 2022” list is subdivided into categories, namely, ‘Artists, Innovators, Titans, Leaders, Icons and Pioneers.’

    As such, it can’t be an issue as to whether or not Mottley is at position # 1, 50, 88 or 100 thereon.
    However, she is # 1 on the Leaders’ category.

    But, what does that mean? Certainly not that she is the ‘most influential leader in the world.’

    What I can ‘say’ about Mia Mottley is that she continues to live ‘rent free’ in a particular individual’s head.
    Therefore, she has to be #1 on that person’s ‘list of the most influential tenants.’

    Anything marked World as in World Trade Organisation WTO or World Health Organisation WHO is going to love any exposition such as what she put forward.

    You may well ask WTF did she say that so wowed her sponsor?

    The silence is deafening Barbados today writes and editorial to highlight the problem asking irrelevant questions to govt officials

  • There is no right to remain silent for the top cop
    Today’s Editorial
    Amid all the unfolding developments of the spiralling cost of living, the rise and fall of COVID-19 cases, preparations for Crop Over 2022, new mask mandates and everything else, there’s been a concerning spike in violence this month.
    We should not be lulled into a false sense of security.
    On May 6th, police discovered the lifeless body of O’Neal Farmer, 40, lying on the floor of an establishment at Jordan’s Lane, Nelson Street, St Michael. He had been stabbed.
    A day later, police reported that a Canadian citizen who has been living here for more than a decade was robbed when masked men, brandishing what appeared to be a machine gun, invaded his home with four other occupants.
    On May 11, a passenger and a conductor were injured after being involved in an altercation while their bus was en route to Bridgetown.
    On May 15, two men were shot in Fernihurst, Black Rock, St Michael and another at Bush Yard Gap, St Michael.
    Last Friday, a man was killed at Dash Gap, Bank Hall, and early this morning, a man was killed after being involved in a shooting incident with police at Eagle Hall.
    This rash of violence is no slur against the rank and file of the Barbados Police Service who are working around the clock to keep this country safe.
    And we are aware that they may have the intelligence about criminal activity to develop strategies to beat relentless perpetrators at their game.
    But some reassurance – indeed some insight – from the BPS high command on these troubling developments would be as welcome as it is lacking.
    Last November 1, 42-year law enforcement veteran Richard Boyce replaced Tyrone Griffith as Commissioner of Police.
    To the best of our knowledge, while Commissioner Boyce has provided an update on the latest crime statistics via a press release, he is yet to present himself to the Barbadian public after six months on the job. He has been missing from the national conversation on crime and violence.
    The police chief should step to the crease and make his delivery on what taxpayers can expect from his turn at the bat for us on the law and order front.
    We don’t expect the police chief to announce his battle plan against violent criminals. But to “serve, protect and reassure” – as the police service’s motto promises – it is now time for him to simply connect with the same citizens on whom the police must rely in the fight against crime.
    It may well be true that the perception of crime does not match the actual statistics. We still need to know.
    Last week, when Prime Minister Mia Mottley made a special appearance on popular call in radio programme Down to Brass Tacks, one caller used the opportunity to raise his concern about crime.
    He frankly shared his disappointment that this and past administrations have failed to wrestle waves of crime and violence to ground and he urged Mottley to implement tougher laws to deter criminals.
    The Prime Minister’s defence was that legislation was already in place but that the administration of justice was not yet where it needed to be.
    Despite the appointment of seven new judges – one Court of Appeal judge, four High Court judges and two temporary High Court judges – in October 2019, Mottley expressed concern with the speed at which the island’s courts are dealing with criminal matters and suggested reform of some nature might be necessary.
    She said: “With respect to the laws those issues are very much there and for the most part they provide the penalties that you are asking for. Where I believe that we are falling down is that we are not moving cases through the court system still as fast as I would like to see because we have as you know put additional judges and positions in place, but I think that you need a reform of some of the procedural aspects of how we conduct cases, particularly in the criminal law, much of which resembles regrettably too much of a 19th and 20th century Barbados.”
    But legal and judicial reforms cannot by themselves stop bullets from flying.
    It is Government’s responsibility to ensure the Barbados Police Service has the tools it needs to get the job done, agree on the implementation of crime-fighting initiatives and hold the Police Chief and the top brass accountable if they still fail to deliver.
    Equally, it is the responsibility of the lead warrior in the fight against crime to show the leadership we have come to expect from them as the nation grapples with these shootings and stabbings.
    Only accused persons have a legally enforceable right to remain silent as a protection from self-incrimination. It is time for the Commissioner of Police in the face of this bloodletting to send a message to the law-abiding and the lawless.
    In times of crisis, we demand not mere administrators, but leaders to help us all to cope, prepare and understand.

    I now see why you ‘duz keep a low profile on BU.’

    I’ve been trying to understand how the monument at the Garrison could, in seriousness, be responsible for the crime situation and perhaps everything negative that’s been happening in Barbados.

    What is equally ridiculous is the notion that “slave bones” taken from Barbados to be buried in Ghana, caused the La Soufrière volcano in St. Vincent to erupt, sending ash fall on Barbados.
    I’m now wondering what was taken from Barbados and buried where, when there was a similar occurrence after the volcano erupted in 1812, 1902 and 1979?
    “Freak storms and mayhem” were recorded in this island, prior to the bones being buried on November 18, 2019.

    “This is not the Barbados of the pre-emancipation period, this is not the Barbados of the immediate post-emancipation period. This is not the Barbados of the pre-independence period. This is a 21st century Barbados, this is a time that there is a rising consciousness among people that they don’t have to put up with what they don’t want to put up with.

  • @ Bush Tea,
    How’s it possible for a country to both conceive and incorporate the Devil’s pitchfork on its flag?

    Some years ago you commented on this point. It is astonishing that Barbadians are oblivious to the symbolism of their flag and what it represents.

    The pitchfork was a tool familiar to our ancestors. They toiled all day under the heat of the sun armed with their outdoor Devil”s tool.

    The Barbados national flag should be a reminder to Afro Bajans that the country was built on a foundation of evil. It’s high time someone replaces our national flag with a more uplifting one.

    I was the first to comment on the symbolism of Mia and her 1001 scarves. My comments were condemned by several bloggers who seemed blind in the knowledge that Mia was trying to project an image of an empress.

    Bush Tea, Barbadians lack awareness of symbolism and subliminal imagery and its connection with propaganda. Good luck.

    The scale of the fraud is so massive that we will be devoting a number of articles to diagramming it, and explaining its operation, but we want to identify the players early on, so that our readers put a face to the professional misconduct, by those who applied their specialized knowledge of law and procedure to cheat ordinary Bajans out of their cherished patrimony.”

    ‘We reap what we sow.’ ‘The wages of sin is death.’

    I’ve read Court cases from the 1950s, during which accused persons were sentenced to hang after being found guilty of committing some very brutal murders.
    From a ritual killing of a baby for money to enable the murderer to travel to Canada; a bus driver who purposely struck and killed a truck driver with an omnibus, near Queen’s Park; a man killing his former girl friend after stabbing her several times at the junction of Passage and Westbury Roads; a man casually walking away with the cutlass in his hand, after ‘chopping up’ his girlfriend and leaving her body on the roadside; to another man who fatally stabbed his wife at their home in the Bay Land.
    Some shopkeepers were charged for dishonest practices, such as selling ‘unadulterated milk,’ or over pricied goods.
    Bus drivers were fined for speeding, being ‘off route,’ and conductors for overloading.

    Interestingly, those crimes occurred prior to November 30, 1966.
    Where were the ‘flag and broken trident’ during those times?
    Or, perhaps “the Creator in his interactions with brass bowls,” used other “symbols, idols and rituals?”

    And, SEVENTY-TWO (72) YEARS AFTER, in 2022, people CONTINUE to commit SIMILAR crimes.

    Remember Genesis 6:5:
    “And GOD saw (and continues to see) that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”

    Ecclesiastes 1:9:

    But, what is annoying is BU’s ‘resident alarmist,’ who never misses an opportunity to speak authoritatively, that Barbadians are ‘blind, ignorant, unaware, unknowledgeable and oblivious’ of the myriad of issues confronting the society…… and the world in general.

  • Influence LIAT payout, Mottley urged
    By Randy Bennett
    Prime Minister Mia Mottley has been urged to use her influence to find a resolution for the scores of Barbadian former LIAT employees who have yet to receive severance more than two years after being laid off.
    The call came today from one of the distraught former workers, who, while speaking on popular radio call in programme Down to Brasstacks, said he and his colleagues were at their wits’ ends and in desperate need of help.
    He said Mottley, who was recently named as one of the 100 most influential people of 2022 by Times magazine, should be able to use her position to negotiate a deal for the former LIAT pilots and other staff members.
    The frustrated caller queried why the St Lucia government, which is not a shareholder of LIAT, had offered to pay out some of its workers and Barbados had not done the same.
    However, when asked to respond to the concerns raised by the former workers today, Mottley said she would prefer to first hear what issues were raised.
    The Prime Minister did indicate that she had been in discussions with Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda Gaston Browne on possibly finding a solution.
    “I haven’t heard the programme and you’re now talking to me about it in the middle of this exercise so the first thing I will do is just as I ask people to do and that is go out and measure and monitor. I need to know what they said and I need to see what the issues are.
    “I’ve been talking to Gaston [Browne] as well. Last week in Guyana we talked about how we can use LIAT in a more effective way as well for cargo. We have also recognized that there are outstanding issues and we’ve said to him that we need to meet. I don’t know what was said today so I don’t know how to respond other than that,” Mottley responded.
    More than 500 workers of LIAT (1974) Ltd were temporarily laid off on April 1, 2020, including around 55 from Barbados.
    To date, they have received no severance nor outstanding monies, which include vacation pay and retroactive pay owed to them by LIAT.
    It has been estimated that former Barbadian workers are owed in the region of $13 million EC dollars ($9.7 million) by LIAT.
    In May last year, Government provided a one-off gift of 2000 to just under 100 displaced Barbadian Liat workers.
    Additionally, the workers received an advance of $2,000 per month for a year to be paid back at a future date from any eventual severance settlement. randybennett@barbadostoday.bb

    I know you’ve been following this LIAT issue.

    In all fairness, what is there for Mottley “to influence,” especially under circumstances where the Barbadian former LIAT employees, having contributed to Antigua & Barbuda’s social security scheme……are owed severance payments by the government of Antigua & Barbuda?

    What the ‘government’ of Barbados did, was to pay them $2,000 per month, for one year, at the expense of Barbadian taxpayers, to be repaid when they receive payments from ANU.

    What is also missing from the ‘story,’ is that the St. Lucian government entered into an agreement with former St. Lucian LIAT non-management employees ONLY, who worked in St. Lucia, to pay them severance.

    Also remember, Antigua’s Gaston Browne administration took over operations of the airline, its assets and liabilities, and is therefore responsible for paying the severance.
    Additionally, some time during December 2021, some former ANU employees accepted a ‘compassionate payment’ of 50% of their total severance payments due, for which they were required to waive their rights to any future settlements.
    Browne reprtedly said the offer was not open to negotiations and the former employees could either ‘take it or leave it.’

    Apparently, those Barbadians who are now protesting, were among those persons who rejected the offer.
    I believe the reasoning behind the ‘protest’ is that they are entitled to full severance payments, which is true…… and since ANU offered them 50% only, which they rejected….. the Barbados government, as a shareholder of LIAT, should pay them.

  • Lil Island big ideas fuh trute lol

    AH LOTTA HOT AIR!

    BARBADOS GOVERNMENT’S JAMMED COMMUNICATION MACHINERY IS PAID EXORBITANTLY HIGH SALARIES WITH VERY LITTLE TO SHOW.

    Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley first hired St. Kitts-born fugitive with Dominica heritage, Charles Jong to serve as Director of Communications, and along with his traveling and entertainment allowances he earns $17,500.00 per month, nearly the same amount as Government Minister. He is paid this large sum of money to spy on Barbadians by way of tapping mobile and landline devices aided by Former Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin under the instruction of Political Strategist Hartley Henry. Jong has a diplomatic passport and receives immunity for any of his previous criminal offenses in other countries.

    Then, Senator Patricia Parris as Director of Public Affairs receives a combined $15,300.00 per month and leads a large and useless department of Mr. Tyson Henry (Deputy Director of Public Affairs), Miss Christal P. Austin (Senior Public Affairs Officer), Mr. Tyrone Dalton Lovell (Senior Public Affairs Officer) along with Miss Lisa Lorde (Public Affairs Officer) whose monthly salaries amount to $97,000 per month.

    Mr. Roy Morris who struggled from the inception of his role as Press Secretary has now been shifted into the manufactured post of Director of Citizens Engagement & Media Relations to earn a salary of $13,735.00 per month. His replacement Alex Downes will now collect a monthly salary of $8,240.00 per month as the newly appointed Press Secretary.

    An overwhelming outcry of deception and a great sense of betrayal on the part of the people was the response to Mr. David Ellis’ appointment as COVID-19 Public Advisor. It was seen as an attempt to muzzle his dissenting voice against the Government of Barbados and the scores of discrepancies in the execution of their mandate. Barbadians are well aware that Ellis receives $10,150.00 per month at the cost of his silence.

    Meanwhile, the role of the Chief Information Officer has been diminished but the earnings of Sharon Lynch have not changed from $12,320.00 per month to a sum of $234,000.00 in salaries per month for the now underutilized staff of the Government Information Services (GIS).

    This amounts to over $380,625.00 in salaries per month for individuals to work in the area of communications.

    Lest we forget the CBC TV and radio whose main job is Government PR 24/7; the ever-present privately paid cameramen Ricky Redman, Chris Cooke-Johnson; Stephanie Chase, a Government teacher; Roshanna Trim the social media slave whose Senate hopes never came to fruition; and others on government’s payroll who receive unknown sums of money as part of the propaganda machinery.
    The interviews with overseas news agencies are sought out and booked by these people and the publicity surrounding all international engagements is manufactured by them.
    All former leaders attended the same forums but she has carefully strategized to make sure hers secure maximum publicity.
    This is a Government of Public Relations. Absolutely nothing is being done in this country besides PR and hot air.
    Oh, I forgot to mention Virgo Communications which is owned by Stephanie Von Oppen, the girlfriend of the Prime Minister’s brother Stewart Mottley and their multi-million dollar slogan “Little Island, Big Barbados”.

    “PM Briceno has been quoted in the local media as saying that he got the link from Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley, who – after all – was just voted Time Magazine’s most influential person.

    So, what’s behind it all, and what’s the level of exposure of Belize’s and other CARICOM leaders? We asked Prime Minister Briceno at his office 90 minutes ago:

    Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister
    “Simply what happened is that Prime Minister Mottley called me on Friday and she said you’re going to get a message from the secretary general on the UN that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have said that they want to assist 3 countries that they are setting aside 15 million dollars to help – 3 of the countries that have been hit hardest by Covid and as chairman of CARICOM that they are going to contact me. I was contacted using the secretary general Guiterrez WhatsApp and the message said lets do WhatsApp, because its encrypted. I contacted the secretary general and I contacted a few other people and then it was agreed that St. Lucia, Bahamas and Trinidad and Tobago were the 3 countries that were going to. They ask for numbers, we provided them the numbers. It is only when they contacted the prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago and then he became suspicious immediately.”

    Did our government not WASH ITS HANDS and abandon its responsibilities by dumping its shares?
    Did the shiite politicians not appoint their lackie friends into positions they were clearly INCAPABLE of performing successfully?
    Did Mia not play politics by putting Arthur in charge…and then deliberately FAILING LIAT – for personal spite?

    The problem with wunna ‘economists’ (whatever the Hell those are) is that wunna think that numbers are the bottom line.
    This whole shiite place is run by hidden agendas, bribe-influence, and back-patting…. and then we try to explain it away with shiite numbers.

    It is VERY EASY for Bushie to empathize with these workers… and with the thousands of others in SIMILAR circumstances – like those at
    Collins
    Simpson Motors
    SOL
    BL&P
    …and ALL those others, who thought that they were committing their LIVES and talents to Building Barbados, only to be sold out to HEARTLESS STRANGERS who are just a pack of international mercenary predators…. and BETRAYED by a series of bribe-taking, low-minded, incompetent political pimps, who are happy to collect their ‘commissions’ on the misery dished out to hardworking citizens who mostly VOTED FOR THEM.
