Was Tony Marshall ‘Hoist With His Own Petard’?

Tony Marshall sacked as Chairman of the NIS Board

Up to a few weeks ago retired banker Tony Marshall was the ‘man’ in Barbados. According to the Systematic Survey he was Starcom’s number one talk show host. Until his 2 year term expired as Chairman of the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) last week, he occupied one of the most important positions in Barbados. BU agrees with George Payne MP who suggested in his contribution to the Estimates Debate that the NIS ranks in importance with the Central Bank of Barbados and the Barbados Electoral Boundaries Commission and therefore should operate with independence.  One wonders however if the statement was made based on ‘lodge’ loyalty.

So what happened?

A couple weeks ago Starcom’s David Ellis in response to a public query about Tony Marshall’s absence from hosting the talk show Brasstacks, explained that Tony Marshall will not be returning to the show. It is obvious any decision by Starcom to block its most popular talk show host from the airwaves must have been based on a ‘show-stopper’ issue. CEO of Starcom Vic Fernandes is a man who sees dollars first and Marshall’s absence from Brasstacks and its potential impact on advertising dollars would have weighed heavily in the decision to part ways.

So what happened?

To add to Marshall’s March Madness, Minister Byer-Suckoo announced last week that his term as Chairman of the NIS had expired and the government was not interested in renewing, no explanation was given for his ‘removal’. Any insight into how Marshall felt about the decision was gauged by his blunt reaction to Starcom’s Stetson Babb request for comment. It is known that Marshall is a DLP sympathizer who was rumoured to have been shortlisted to take up an overseas diplomatic posting which never materialized.

So what happened?

BU’s position regarding Marshall’s role as Chairman of the NIS is that he should have resigned given his involvement on the boards of CLICO companies. The role of the NIS is very important and any lack of confidence in NIS Board members was not healthy. The government would also be mindful of the political fallout which could arise from Marshall’s past association with CLICO.

There is also the NIS decision to invest in the Four Seasons after the Marshall led Board was summoned to Bay Street. Did Marshall try to exert a position which was contrary to that of government? If his term was not rolled over for reason of exercising the independence of the NIS Board this would contradict Ministers Sinckler and Byer-Suckoo protestations that the government has not sought to interfere with the decision making of the Board.

So what happened?

If the economic conditions were not challenging enough for the government, it now has a disgruntled Tony Marshall in the wings pondering his next move. Whether one agrees with Marshall or not there is no doubt he has a fan base and any utterances by him which place the government in a bad light is something it does not need at this time.

    Well! well! Well! According to ole onions: ‘that one Quick draw is really from the to draw’! Faster than Quick draw McGraw from 60’s TV fame to shoot down the phoney marshal(l). What a fantastic move to make him GG reflecting like a capstone the quality of leaders we have running the show. More appropriately though, do you thing he is being earmarked for the vacant seat in the Senate? He likes a lot of talking. Maybe he will replace Avinash Persaud as the Four Seasons chairman and project manager as a way of gagging him and giving him the chance to do what he likes best; play with other people’s money while pocketing a “medici” cut for himself.

    I dont know what prompted this government to get rid of Phony Marshall when his contract expired. They are using this as the excuse that he has gone. There is certainly more in the mortar than the pestle there.

    But I do know that he allowed the people who tell him that he was so popular on Brasstacks to make him feel he was so special and requested from VOB a bigger pay than the other moderators. So they parted company with him.

    Ken,

    You are so right. I would never forget how he treated the “senator” on Brasstacks. Once you did not carry his party colours, he treated people with disdain. I could never understand how people keep saying he was so good. I worked with him in Barclays and he treated the employees the same way. He was a black ass who got what he did not expect as far as we were concerned, the staff hated him.

    VOB showed him the door, hope it did not hit him on his way out. A few DLP diehards and Verney Hinds (though he treated Verney bad most times) swelled his head saying that he was the best moderator. I stopped listening to Brasstacks on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I know a lot of people who did too.

    As I said on this blog already, I worked with that man in Barclays and he was a real SOB. He treated black customers shabbily most times and sucked up to the white hierarchy just to be promoted. No one in the branch like this SOB.

    On Brasstacks he was always going on when the Bees were in office….tell the people….the people want to know. I never forgot how one day he tried to carry on the PRO from Transport scruffy but she stuck to her guns and he had to back down. But when he was president of the BCA you could not ask him a question or when he was on the WICB or on the NIS board. Damn idiot.

    “The BU household congratulates Dr. Justin Robinson who has been elevated to Chairman of NIS Board to replace Tony Marshall.”

    Maybe he took my advice and overthrew the fumbling marshall.

    There is more to this matter than what the minister said. How comes she said that she did not want to change horses in mid course and so the full board was told to hold their resignations but as soon as the contract expired, Phony Marshall is the only one chopped and the deputy was elevated.

    Dr Justin, did you stab the marshall in his back? Wow the Dems are eating their own. ac, where are you, the Dems are self imploding.

    Tony Marshall was only one of the Board of Directors of Clico and Baico. I believe it is very opportune and good for Barbados and all Barbadians that the Government recognised that the circumstances required Mr Marshall’s contract as Chairman of our mega million NIS fund not to be renewed. HOWEVER: given the “infelicities” (if i may borrow Leslie Haynes Q.C. delicate terminology for money laundering) perhaps Haynes Q.C. can comment on the princple of collective governance and responsibility of any Board of Directors………..especially as Haynes Q.C. was Senior Counsel to the Boards of Clico and Baico……and perhaps the same legal gentleman can explain why he and the others resigned with such alacrity;
    sincerely……more, much more….. later!!
