  1. I think Benn is a good candidate, but for another constituency.

    He is capable, down to earth, knowledgeable in many areas but he did not make a success of his stint in the Ministry of Agriculture. However, hardly any Minister has ever made a success of that Ministry. In his new Ministry there does not seem to be any outstanding achievements so far.

    But the work on the ground in St Peter will probably be the deciding factor. Has Haynesley done or can do enough of the hard door to door slogging that will make the difference? Has he employed or visibly helped enough people in his constituency during this economic crisis? Has Owen Arthur or his surrogates been doing their homework on the ground assiduously? Does his exposure as Opposition leader allow him to maintain his lead?

    Inputs from constituents will be necesary to gauge more clearly how this battle will turn out. Will it be close or will it be a landslide? The overall economic situation and the work on the ground together may be the determining factors.

  2. David; I don’t think so. There’s many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip.

    Of course the favourite by far must be Owen Arthur. But if Owen, for whatever reason, was not doing his homework in the constituency and if he does not have access to the kind of resources which would have ensured victory during his tenure as PM, and if the Haynesley Benn has ensured that he is personally associated in the minds of constituents with certain improvents of importance to them, the odds might get closer. AS the elections get closer and people post their experiences here with the candidates it will become clearer and clearer if there will be the expected landslides or if there are chances for closer results.

    By the way. I think the responses today have exceeded my wildest imagination. If they continue in this train up to the election, I think you would have got a winner.

    • @checkit-out

      It was a great idea!


      Checkit-out seems to have ignored the fact Arthur won his seat by securing 60% of the vote.

  3. Checkit,

    I think Owen Arthur is one MP who keeps close to his constituency, so he may have no fears this time around.

  4. If Benn can’t even control the price of corn beef….you think he could effect any change at all in St. Peter ? Alike Patricia Simmonds…he facilitating the democratic process, and doing it with a smile….

  5. What has the DLP done to assist Benn in trying to challenge Owen? The Jetty at S’town, has been in bad shape for over a year, roads that were under repair during the BLP regime are still to be finished. Added to that Benn himself , who used to be very close to the constituents, is now either too busy, or arrogent to find time to socialise with his people. Owen, now that the weight of government is off his shoulders, is finding more time to do like DT and find himself in the rum shops and people’s homes. If Benn didn’t beat him last time, his chances now is very slim, now that there is a swing away from the DLP.

  6. From barbadostoday:

    “Some vendors and northern residents had told Barbados TODAY that among other things, no one was approaching them about ideas to revive the once vibrant shopping and fishing area. It is a position with which Benn disagreed, recalling that when he was an employee of DaCosta Mannings, one of the many businesses that has closed in Speightstown, he had recommended an Independence lighting of all the businesses — a proposal from which other companies shied away.”

    Independence lights? How earth shattering Senator Benn. lol

  7. The BLP is set to assume the reins of Government once again come tomorrow January 25, 2013. The BLP under the leadership of party leader Owen Arthur completely destroyed the DLP under the leadership of Freundel Suart. The final election result shows the BLP winning 29 seats , the DLP GAINING NO SEATS and an independent candidate, a former member of the DLP winning the other seat Meanwhile former Prime Minister Stuart who lost his seat to a returning Noel Lynch said that he would retire from elective politics.

    The final result in the election is as follows:

    BLP = 29 SEATS
    DLP = 0 SEATS


    BLP and DLP same Massive Fraud PONZI team. If you all think that the only PONZI was done in the United States think again. What ever happens in America come to Barbados next.This is now Barbados turn to feel the pain of Massive Fraud. BUT the true owners of the land have a Plan to fix.

    Freedom of Information Act was talked by the DLP.
    Once in Office they see why they can not or will not pass it.
    If they pass it now All of Barbados will see the truth
    Audit of the Island Books will show that the records have been re- written and books and pages missing from the Island History.
    Archives and land Registry ram sacked , hidden , removed papers to hide what Some did ,and others covered up for gains in there over seas off shore bank accounts. Both BLP and DLP living well above their means.
    Beatrice Henry 1892-1985 Will to Violet Beckles 1918-2010 Will to her Heirs.
    After probate in 28of1986 done by Sir Sleepy Smith , Sir Cheltenham was given the Plantation Deeds to Ascent in the name of Violet Beckles.The 18 page statement signed with the Police Fraud Squad in 2009.Police took copies of over 90 Percent of the Information including Plantation deeds .
    When Violet died Aug 23rd 2010 and the PM David died Oct 23rd 2010 the police stop looking .

    The web site http://www.plantations.bb was remove this year 2012 that was to show who owned Plantation and Slaves in Barbados from 1630 to modern times 2012. .
    C.O Williams listed as to own 1 plantation cane field 238 acres. If even that is to be true.
    In 1756 on the Maps of Barbados the Maps will show 2 plantations in the name of Agard and 3 in the name of Jemmot. The Family names of Beatrice and Violet.Those name do not show up in any records of Barbados.Inland Revenue even remove Beatrice Henry and Violet Beckles from there records hoping no one will look or ask for them.
    The so-called 10 greatest Bajan and the Two Queens of Barbados not even listed as even being on the Island , The birth papers and the death papers are here and the same graves at St Mary’s Church in the City.
    The massive Fraud was looked in to and report confirmed the truth . covered up 2002 report called it a Massive Fraud.
    Moving The Land To Please was always heard on the TV and radio.
    This is why the BLP and Now the DLP have to sell over priced land to overseas people and Investors.
    Why people claim they dont know whos the owner are. Law One , All land have an Owner.
    1630 we knew 1730 we knew, 1830 we knew, 1913 we knew 1920 we knew 1926 Beartice Henry bought up 200 to 300 of the over 400 Plantations that makes up All of Barbados and of that 231 Sugar Plantation listed.
    Most whites leave the Island during WW1 and WW2 sold their Plantations, as sugar prices fell, at Auction by D”Arcy Scott.As far back as we see to Beatrice Henry.The records show us from 1926 to 1978 recorded on print out of 1980 and other Deeds showing 1926 and the next 50 years. The Family of H.W Clarke worked for Beatrice Henry for over 50 years as surveyors.
    Next CLICO.its Also clear to us that the BOOKS of CLICO was stuffed with the Plantations to boost the PONZI bottom line. To fool investors to come in with there money like British America .. 9%return on your money and the Banks was at 3%?
    The Al Barrack deal also build in the Lands of this Estate, not paid for, High Court not paid for, Oval not paid for, ABC high way not paid for, Oil in the not paid for, All dealing with land.
    This is Why things are the way they are , looking into this from 2007 front page news over 200 sites found , By DEED ALONE HIGH COURT move against land fraud. Printed but nothing was done as you see investors leaving the island for there are no CLEAR titles to be found,
    New RULES on FRAUD, OH hide it with lies for 20years and now you have GOOD title ,,NOT , Still Fraud, need clear title ,The brake in title between the Land Registry and the Archives is 20 to 30 year GAP , Most lawyers to make the land deal or sale will only go to 20 year and be done.
    Today the PM area is Brittons Hill area or the Baylands? The deed we have is for 286 acres and there is no listing for this plantation in records of Barbados , Ghost Plantation and there is more not even listed.
    Violet paid over 50 lawyers for more than 20 years to lie to her and then take from her deeds
    Land Tax Mr Ford , land tax number moved to other names with out deeds, Mr Cummings with the UDC land Bank with no deeds. Inland rev wiped names off list, Banks Kept her funds or missing, Water company turn on water for crook to make money of rentals but not the owners with deeds,
    The Estate is to have 4000 house ? and all other built buy application and with out Permission of the Owners.
    Any Questions? Ask who you look to VOTE for If they cant answer then they are Lying
    Sorry to Much to LIST.
    Ask your question here? or in Person
