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.

    Now we’re ‘you people’. We care not what your opinions are. Deification is what this article was about, in political terms.
    What we care about is the almost criminal commitment to show just one side in the midst of a regional scandal in which Mottley is the star boy.

    We simply need to agree on the definition as intended by William who owns the patent on the term.

    In Bushie’s opinion (not necessarily humble), William means “the various political gangsters who, operating from illegal, unregistered organizations that are above the law, and even above BASIC financial accounting requirements, have managed to gain FULL control of Barbados’ $$ 3 BILLION economy; drive it into $$4Billion of debt; while selling off all its assets for a bowl of porridge.

    On Bu there is a triopoly* of AC, Grenville Phillips and everyone else

    Triopoly can refer to:

    Triopoly

    A twinstick or duopoly (broadcasting) operation to which a third local station under the same common ownership has been added. If programming (and not just ownership) is the same across three stations in the same market, the cluster is not a triopoly but a trimulcast.

    @ Bush Tea

    David is quite capable of representing himself.

    But, perhaps you should explain to me what I’m “supporting?”

    Unless you’re implying stating the FACTS surrounding the issue, is an INDICATION of support.

    The Barbadian BASED former LIAT employees were NOT paid severance payments by LIAT.
    Having paid contributions into Barbados’ NIS, they were therefore entitled to severance and were supposed to benefit from expedited hearings by the NIS Tribunal.

    The Barbadian former LIAT employees, BASED in Antigua, would’ve likewise contributed to that island’s social security scheme and are legally entitled to severance payments therefrom, if such payments were not forthcoming from LIAT or the government of Antigua & Barbuda.

    Instead, ANU’s PM, Gaston Browne, offered the former employees, (including Antiguans), 50% of their severance….. and told them to ‘take it or leave it.’

    So, how were they “sold out by the Barbados government?”

    Like

  • Artax
    You are MUCH more astute that that…
    How did Gaston Browne get to have such power?
    Why should HE give two hoots about Bajan workers…?
    WHO is it that SHOULD give three hoots about dedicated Bajan workers?
    …and did SAME persons not have the POWER previous to meekly handing it to Browne?
    WHY were the interest of local (and quite frankly REGIONAL) workers treated so scantily by the Barbados Government?

    Life is NOT simple Artax.
    One CANNOT use linear equations to solve complex issues with multiple interdependent variables.

  • Skinner’s definition is well within the general meaning. A situation where two political forces dominate the landscape historically.

    Let me suggest that those attorneys practicing law in Barbados, who consider themselves to be honest, contact the American Bar Association, in the United States, dissolve the Barbados Bar Association, which is obviously part of there corrupt “Old Boy” network, and seek advice on creating a new entity, free from corruption, that has both the teeth to discipline its members, and the fortitude to do so.”

    But this is American law with international implications.

    Similarly, if someone is perpetuating a conspiracy to defraud and you assist such an enterprise you are deemed to be its author. In this case Mottley not only failed to recognize the conduct of a fraud but assertively acted in its furtherance. Their law will presume that someone of her training and position cannot be excuse based on these false pleadings of yours. No wonder American jails are full of ‘innocent’ people like you …………………………………….. and Mia Mottley.

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.

    Northern…i think he would know her voice…remember he said that they only wanted whatsapp communication no voice calls…..Rowley said the same thing, and her voice is distinctive. The only person that i know sounds like her, is her mother….and it’s doubtful she would call a fellow Caricom member..

  • Oh-ho! This is how they communicate these days, by whatsapp??? Seems a little too informal to me but what do I know!

    Okay! Seems like she alerted the others that they would be contacted and Rowley only became suspicious later on when he was asked to deposit money in the Chinese Bank.

    Apparently that happened later, after the initial contact.

    That was the red flag that we all would have picked up. There was no danger of that happening. Still don’t like this whatsapp business, though. I don’t like this casual thing with government business.

  • Dr. Ronnie Yearwood says

    DLP president wants diaspora to have more say in local affairs
    By Kareem Smith
    Democratic Labour Party (DLP) president Dr Ronnie Yearwood is calling for greater inclusion of the Barbadian diaspora in local decisionmaking processes, including national elections.
    Describing the current relationship as “one-sided”, Yearwood declared that members of the diaspora are often used only as instruments of financial assistance.
    “Too often we see the diaspora as almost like an ATM machine,” Dr Yearwood told Barbados TODAY.
    “We go to them when we need their money, we go to them when there’s a hurricane, we reach out to them for things. We recognize, for example, that remittances in the Caribbean from the diaspora are in the billions of dollars.
    We have to take their role seriously.
    “Yes, we want to encourage their investment in the Caribbean, but we also have to recognise how to give them space to contribute to the development of the Caribbean, not only in remittances and investment and projects and things of that nature but through their knowledge and their ideas,” he added.
    The newly elected DLP president is engaging with members of the diaspora on a trip to the United Kingdom. He was recently invited to celebrate with the new Lord Mayor of Leicster, George Cole, who is the first person of African- Caribbean descent to hold the position. Dr Yearwoood also intends to meet with the DLP’s UK branch in the coming days.
    He said the talks would transcend discussions about money, instead examining how members of the overseas branch of the party can play a more active role in Barbados’ development.
    “Considerations should be given for persons in the diaspora to be allowed to vote, and discussions started about what levels do we want them to vote and for who and what positions,” Dr Yearwood declared.
    Currently, only in-person voting is allowed in general elections, excluding scores of people in the diaspora.
    “These are all really, really serious discussions because we can’t continue what effectively is a one-sided relationship.
    We take and take and take, but what role do they actively get to play in the policy space for the money that they’re giving, either through remittances or whether it’s through supporting charities or investment? It cannot be that onesided relationship, so there has to be some rebalancing and we have to find a way to seriously do that,” he added.
    During the short interview, Dr Yearwood lauded the appointment of the Jamaican-born George Cole as Leicester’s new Lord Mayor, as a major milestone for Caribbean people everywhere.
    The DLP leader said he had paid the Lord Mayor a courtesy call to discuss pressing issues like climate change, crime and investment.
    “There are practical ways that these cities can help us in terms of free trade, providing for markets, and what you recognise in large countries is that cities are often the movers of a new policy and change. Because cities have certain freedoms, there are also diverse, and not only culturally diverse but politically diverse,” said Dr Yearwood.
    “There’s always high technology intensity around cities, so cities can be very helpful to help us in Barbados and the region in fighting our battles.
    “So, it is useful to understand where these cities are, where our communities in these cities are, what they’re doing and what they’re achieving and to be part of that and to celebrate that,” he added. kareemsmith@barbadostoday.bb

    Besides which, I don’t spend my days scouring websites for scandals. Everything comes out eventually in plenty of time for me to become aware. I have no desire to break news.

    I try not to blow things out of proportion. This scam had zero chance of being successful. Which PM has the autonomy to deposit money in a Chinese bank account just so. or which PM would be that stupid? Ms. Mottley received a message and passed it on. The huge red flag came AFTER her initial interaction. The only problem I have is that it does appear to have been ignored by our news media.

    That is curious and troubling.

    DLP president criticises “hot and sweaty” approach to education reform
    Government has been encouraged to abandon “hot and sweaty” approaches to education reform in favour of a well thought out, researched and inclusive process.
    President of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Dr Ronnie Yearwood said the approach to governance was one which he had discussed with members of the diaspora, during his current trip to the United Kingdom, as an area of concern.
    The educator at the University of the West Indies said a significant portion of his trip has been spent at leading learning institutions, examining the methods of teaching and the curriculum that could contribute to reforms at home.
    “Perhaps now is the time for them to do some fact-finding and to try to see what are best practices, whether in the Caribbean or in the diaspora, from our educational schools that are performing well, and what can we learn and draw from them and all around us and, importantly, learn from the experts,” he said.
    “We have experts on the ground in Barbados and I’ve mentioned this before. The government needs to stop this kind of hot and sweaty thing where we make announcements and then we have to come and say ‘oh, we’re not going to be able to do this’.”
    Throughout her two terms in office, Prime Minister Mia Mottley has announced sweeping reforms in education that include the abolition of the Common Entrance exam among other things.
    Days ago, however, she revealed that while Government is still committed to scrapping the 11-plus, the transition would take at least another two or three years.
    “The abolition of the 11-plus is not a decision that can be made today for tomorrow and whatever paper comes will probably have a minimum of a two-year lead up in order to put things in place, because what you are transitioning from is a system that has been in place for decades,” said Mottley.
    “And, therefore, whenever the paper comes and whenever the consultations start and whenever the decision is settled, then you still need to have a long lead-up in order to execute and to have a seamless transition as long as possible.”
    The newly elected DLP president said the “hot and sweaty” approach to governance was one that he had discussed with members of the diaspora as an area of concern.
    “We saw a very similar thing within the diaspora and I raised this with some of the members in terms of the Government wanting the diaspora to invest more, but not being able to facilitate that investment in a real way or not being able to have serious conversations about their participation in Barbados,” he said.

    Whatever Mottley does is well done.
    1. The classic: she became involved with a police matter involving a citizen, who had her on speed dial.
    The defense of such an inappropriate action by a PM:
    Mia is like that she talks to everybody.
    2. She goes and gets involved in some vaccine business (scandal)completely above the head of the the then Minister of Health.
    The defense:
    No money ain’t pass , so what is the big thing.
    3. Her Former Minister of Education declares that the Eleven Plus will be abolished after 2022
    Mia comes and says no way it could take two or three years to get it right
    The defense
    They can’t find one yet.
    However , I do agree with the PM that it cannot be achieved just so. I hope to express this agreement in a coming article.
    I said from day one that Bradshaw was all presentation and no content. Mia moved her from that ministry and I agreed.
    But I expect in response to this the apologists , die hards and “ we love Barbados more than anybody else “ crowd, will remind me of Cahill, garbage and buses running late.
    So, wuh evuh Mottley does is well done. And even Chris Sinckler agrees.
    Why not, same frigging party , DLPBLP, same shit different day.
