    I am just a Simple Simon.

    I don’t find the ad offensive.

    Did Owen really imply that Mia was not “a leader who enjoys wide acceptance and acceptability in the wider society”

    Can such a statement be viewed as anti-woman/anti the majority of the electorate?

    And if Mia is gay, so what? I doubt that the majority of us who have gay parents, siblings, children, neighbours, colleagues and freinds really care about who is gay or who is not.

    However we do care about who is good and who is not.

    Was he implying that he enjoyed wide acceptance and acceptability in the wider society

    If so why did the wider society throw the BLP into opposition in 2008?

    Ontario has a gay new Premier. A lot of our Bajan immigrants are in Ontario. A lot of our tourists come form there. A lot of investment money too.

    Let me see whether Owen will tell Ms. Wynne to her face that she is not “a leader who enjoys wide acceptance and acceptability in the wider society”

    In the 113th United States Congress there are six openly gay or bisexual members in the House — a small but tangible sign that their presence at the highest levels of government is no longer something only whispered about. The Senate has its first lesbian, Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin. The lawmakers’ partners, no longer relegated to the shadows or introduced generically as “friends,” stood beside them on the House floor when they were sworn in this month. Their adopted children are attending Congressional retreats. And this week they sat in President Obama’s presence as he insisted on equality for “our gay brothers and sisters,” words few of them ever expected to hear in a president’s Inaugural Address.

    I bet Owen won’t tell Obama he is wrong when he insisted on equality for “our gay brothers and sisters,”

    Yes, OSA is right to be concerned since the master fumbler is again at his zenith of ignorance and nadir of (in)competence. OSA has been well informed by certain contributors on this blog about the constitutional niceties and constraints that face the financial integrity of the country in regard to the Estimates for the 2013/14 fiscal year.

    And a wise one would be quick to ask Ms Mottley who it is that is paying for and running these ads, and while at it that person should also ask her why has she allowed Noot Rudder and his gay band to destabalise Ronald Toppin and why is it that the PA to Forde has been canvassing in St James North against the sex pervert Hinkson?
    Mottley has no interest in a BLP win at this election with Arthur still stumbling around the party, she will hang him out to dry this time around and send him away and run her own campaign 5 years hence forth.

    There is no one that is within the Inner circle of the Mottley dynasty that will tell you anything other than she has a plan to unseat Arthur and Payne, Marshall and Toppin all of whom set out to destroy her well being.

    There is no dispute that she has been having that destabalising program undertaken in the constituencies of Toppin and Hinkson, I know for a fact of life from the mouth of Rudder himself in a place in Black Rock and I know for a fact of three days of canvassing in St James North with Forde’s PA in Sion Hill to persuade BLP voters to vote for the DEMS, not a moment of hearsay my friend but a fact of life, you may not want it said as it dispels the rumour of peace in your party but life is what it is and Mottley has been doing whatsoever she needs to do to keep herself in the frame for the next election when Arthur will be a thing of the past.

    Also have you noticed the backward and junior position she has been assigned to speak in these platform speeches a very very junior position an also ran position.

    Ps can you see Arthur having to step down as Prime Minister and leaving the country in the hands of Dale Marshall were he to win his seat ?

    I think the real difference is that the Canadian does not have a track record of abuse of her female sex partners, she maybe is free from the history of vicious beating and furious biting as handed and bite out by Mottley.

    Nor is she one who determined if some should stay or leave the country by if that person was willing to submit her body to Mottley for it to suffer its abuse and STRAP Lashes, as one Guyanese was forced to take to have her Work Permit granted, those are immoral and sick reactions by a sick an immoral Mottley person

    i bet that after the golbal downturn that many have become informed and would think different. when people have money the last thought is that it would run out .a govt in charge of the public coffers should be the leaders in putting the country on firm ground along with educating the people it is not all about giving the people what they want but the overall interest of the country and not thinking about the next vote. do i blame the people for this lack of knoweldge in economocal affairs and the negative impact . NO! however as people become more informed about economic affairs there is no excuse for making the same mistake fifteen times .many voters this time around are more aware and well informed and not looking for pie in the sky as they have seen the damage done to the barbados economy because of govt with self interest and not interest of country.

    She, Mottley may and may not fall into the gay crowd but has not proved herself to be an effective leader for Barbados. Mottley, compared to Julia Gillard (Prime Minister/Australia) is a political misfit. She’s not in it [politics] with clean hands. Mottley herself is in the midt of the Violet Beckles case, cannot deny FACT that she had contact with Violet Beckles. See blog, The Violet Beckles Affair Separating Fact from Fiction Part V. Mottley herself has taken posession of property that rightfully belongs to someone else. Maybe. DavidThompson made effort to investigate Violet Beckles claim of which involves the BLP administration, and the National Housing Commission (NHC), a government entity. . . . . moving tax numbers from one person with deed to another person with no deed and no proof of sale. . . . resulting in massive land fraud. Mia Mottley likely has no deed nor proof of purchase, the Britton Hill property; likely there was no sale; tax number (s) moved from person with deed to her Mia Mottley. Gline Clark the same. He, Gline Clark likely has no deed nor proof of purchase; likely, there was no sale; tax number (s) moved from person with deed to him Gline Clark.

    Mottley like Arthur picks fights with the DLP and embarrasss herself, REALLY. Mottley on June 1, 2012 speaking in the House of Assembly called for Prime Minister Stewart to call an election, immediately. She, then fusses to the Nation News (July 2012) that government owes more than $100 million to the University of West Indies (UWI) Cave Hill Campus and called for an “urgent” permanent solution to the mounting debt problem. Laugh. Go ahead and laugh. Laugh, laugh, laugh. Government at moment may owe Contractor Al Barrack $77 million, a mounting debt problem that occurred because Arthur was into folly with Julie Price, had hit upon one of his drinking binges and or was sleeping. Barack has in his posession a court ordered judgement and must be paid. Owen Arthur, Mia Mottley and Dale Marshall awarded Contractor Al Barack a government contract without tender and Barack had never erected a building that size. Owen Arthur, Mia Mottley and Dale Marshall awarded VECO (Alaska) a government contract without tender. VECO built the prison at Dodds in St. Philip but had no record of building prisons. Low and behold, the prison project extended millions over budget. LOL

He and EWB fell out when EWB was in his hey day and the new knight went and formed his own party. I heard him tell Peter Wickham on Brasstacks he is no politician.

    Dangerous man he is, formed a party and then when it was time to run, he left Wendell McClean high and dry. You know Dems dont know their history, that party has always been a party of confusion. And to think that they are always criticising Clyde Mascoll.

    Caswell;
    You made a comment earlier today that I had forgotten. The 1994 Election campaign called by Sandy was almost 3 months. I was not sure that an election could be constitutionally called so long after dissolution of the house.

    It gives serious food for thought that FS could do the right thing by calling the election sometime before 11th February and also the wrong thing by setting the election date in April or May.

    But he is a student of politics. The Sandy 1994 elections did not show that a long period was good for the incumbents so If history repeats itself the DLP will lose badly. Do you really believe that FS would want to do that?

    Anyone heard if the Civil Servants are getting through with the Estimates? Since only 2 sittings of the House are normally scheduled between now and the 11 th February. If FS can get some imperfect estimates passed before 11th February he might think that that would allow him some slack to postpone the actual election date. But such a decision would be fraught with danger as it might be better not to even try to pass the estimates as the figures presented could provide a field day for the opposition to critize the figures and dissect the Government’s policy in myriad ways on the platform as well as by an unscheduled return to parliament for the Estimates discussions on the basis that such discussion was of paramount importance to the future of the Country.

    There’s some danger there for Freundel. He’s truly between the Devil and the deep blue sea. Decisions! Decisions! Not his strong point.

    The maximum period between a dissolution of Parliament and an election is 90 days. The problem with this scenario is the Estimates and the Appropriation Bill that must be passed before April 1st. The Estimates need not be ready, Government can lay Estimates and vote, say $5 million to every Head. Since the Opposition is not in the House to object, they can suspend the rules of the House and pass the Estimates in one sitting. Thereafter, Parliament can be dissolved and the elections called for May. After the elections, Government can supplement the Estimates and would not have broken any rules because those rules would have been suspended. That is why the Opposition should be in the House.

    In that three-month anything can happen to change the tide of public opinion in favour of the DLP. In 1994, the long period allowed them to save some seats. This time around they could save 16 seats. Remember, a day in politics is a long time.

I would be surprised if the improving approval rating is from real undecideds. I think the increasing approvaal rating is a chimera that is not a true guide to the future especially since OSA’s approval rating seems to be improving despite his unusual reticence over the past few months.

    Why all this over analysis?
    This is an election between two candidates who are both undesirable.
    One is clearly out of his league in terms of leadership and management, and the other is an unrepentant reject who is tainted with alcoholism, dishonesty and ongoing association with local and international conmen.

    Who does a Bajan support? A crook or a simpleton?

    Bushie would have expected the analysis from a man of your BU rating to be more concerned with how we find ourselves in such a catch 22 situation after 50 years of world class education that has produced people like yourself, BU David, Caswelll and many here on BU…..and more importantly, what we should do about it.

    When clearly intelligent people such as you, Observing and some others here on BU take political sides in this debacle, it only serves to give the impression that it ‘makes a difference’ which side wins….

    IT DOES NOT….except for the clear political yardfowls who will personally get some crumbs while their political bosses continue to sink the economy AND the society.

    Unless there is FUNDAMENTAL system change in Barbados NOW, it matters not who wins or loses this election (or even IF Stuart eventually calls it)…..this place will undergo some serious stress unlike anything that we have ever experienced before…..

    Thanks for the compliments above even though somewhat undeserving. You said above “Why this over analysis?”

    Perhaps it may be that I have nothing better to do or it might even be that I think that the situation has the potential to move us precipitately towards a BBE type denounement that would have been better if all aspects had been properly thought out and strategically planned. I actually see no clear thought and sensible strategic planning in the actions and mouthings of the PM so far, just a semblance of a willow caught in the possible hurricane of unwonted winds.

    You also said This is an election between two candidates who are both undesirable. One is clearly out of his league in terms of leadership and management, and the other is an unrepentant reject who is tainted with alcoholism, dishonesty and ongoing association with local and international conmen. Who does a Bajan support? A crook or a simpleton?

    I have’nt yet seen the proof that one of them is tainted with dishonesty and ongoing association with local and international conmen. I’ve however seen the proof that the “simpleton” is demonstrably that, as well as being someone who apparently revels in being tainted with association with one obvious local and international conman. I’ve also seen proof that that individual has practically condoned a serious amount of wrong doing in his cabinet by not calling out the perpetrators and discipling them when he became aware of such wrong doing.

    So the question is not a simple one of either supporting a crook or a simpleton. It is which one of these imperfect beings is likely to be better for the country in the near and short term, the man who has a track record of decisivness and getting things done or the man who cant make any decision until it is absolutely forced on him.

    You said “When clearly intelligent people such as you, Observing and some others here on BU take political sides in this debacle, it only serves to give the impression that it ‘makes a difference’ which side wins”

    To my mind it does make a difference and I am no yardfowl. Methinks there is an example of the biblical mote and beam here which you are not seeing.

    I actually take your point which is subliminally suggesting that Stuart’s thrashings about and machinations could lead to some good in the long run but that I think that it could well be accompanied by widespread distress and a steep downward spiral in our expectations. Forgive an old man who never had to go through such turbulent times in the past in Barbados to hope that he would never see such times here. I remember being in Jamaica, Grenada, Trinidad and Suriname in the aftermath of their turbulent times and it wasn’t pretty. We in Barbados have a stability to boast about. The Stuart continuum promises a possible future that is more like the extended downward blips in those countries than in Barbados.

    Theoretically I can also agree with you that such hard times are necessary but I think that those changes are better led by young persons with energy and vigour than by someone like me who will continue to overanalyse situations in the hope that some other more capable people can take up the ball and do something meaningful to effect positive and not disruptive change that could have the potential to put us back several decades in development.

    But perhaps Freundal is a clear thinking “boss” who is far ahead of all of us and is no simpleton.

    If that is what aging does to the intellect then Bushie needs to hurry up with the process.

    Your well reasoned and informed rebuttal can only come from a sharp mind linked to brain cells that have been fed from a pot of natural intellect, knowledge, training experience and most of all enhanced with the right seasoning of commonsense.

    I still can’t understand how Bushie can refer to OSA as a crook, conman and international gangster when the same “Simpleton” Freundel stood up in the highest Court of the Land
    and absolved the same crook of any wrong doings or political sins.

    How can he, Bushie, explain to BU how the same simpleton can get up in the same Court and clearly express his loyalty and faith in the second biggest conman in the Caribbean.

    Things just aren’t adding up in Bushie’s comparative analysis since he has made it abundantly that despite whatever, simpleton or not, he will still be voting for Stuart.
    If Bushie has such undying confidence in Stuart then he (Bushie) must be loyal and back his man on the position taken to absolve OSA of the false rumours and allegations perpetrated and perpetuated without evidence by the likes of Bushie.

    But Bushie’s last comment is well received and balanced in analysis.

    If you are saying that you have some confidence that Owen will be able to steer us to a level of economic comfort, (and you are not a yard fowl) then perhaps you know something that Bushie does not…. :)

    @ David
    The very best brains in all the world, including those from countries that have (unlike Barbados) been leaders and trend setters in aggressive economic entrepreneurship are at a loss in trying to conceptualize a successful future.
    Pray tell the basis of any expectations of growth for Bim….

    …In rough seas, success is about staying afloat and intact. Only a moron complains about being ‘behind schedule’ or being slightly off track in the middle of a mighty storm while sitting in a small boat….

    …..and Miller….do yourself a favour and stop berating the PM’s referring to Leroy Parris as his friend and ‘not a leper’.
    If anything, it demonstrates that the man is indeed a GENTLEMAN whose friendship is not “fair weather” only.
    Do you disown any former friends who run themselves into trouble?
    Are you only friends of persons in good public standing?
    Are you saying that as PM he should only ‘friends’ with certain folks?

    What EXACTLY is it you are saying…?

    From Bushie’s perspective, it makes the PM into the kind of friend the Bushman would want to have….

    What would be REALLY impressive would be for the PM to hug his friend – and then Lock his ass up….. (As Bushie and Caswell would do…. :) )

    @ Caswell
    You are the last hope for a meaningful system change that can make the needed difference…… What say you….?

    “What would be REALLY impressive would be for the PM to hug his friend – and then Lock his ass up….. (As Bushie and Caswell would do) ”

    Bushie, like the miller, you are just one stark raving mad hypocrite to the bone.
    Imagine a man who rants and rave about his moral high ground supported by his high spiritual faith in the BBE but is prepared to sell his bosom buddy that he loves down the river like Judas did to the Bushman’s friend Jesus.
    Come on Bushie, with your absurdly professed moral high principles don’t be a traitor. You are jettison your long promoted agenda of heaven on earth and perfect harmony by the following the principles and teachings of your BBE (Buddha Brought to Earth).

    How can you describe Freundel as not fit to be an effective leader but will still vote for him to perpetuate a state of affairs you find reprehensible. You exposed hypocrite!
    What about abstaining? That’s your democratic right. No one is forcing you to vote!

    As for liking the crook and swindler OSA, My God that takes the biscuit and aptly expresses your emotional state and pure manifestation of a mental affliction that you claim the miller is cursed with. Even ac will sit next to OSA in Hell and make love before you find one good bone in that crook and liar for a man.

    There is a concept that may be somewhat alien to you…. It is called PRINCIPLE.

    It is that attribute that must be slain as soon as one joins a political party or even become a rumshop Yardie of a party.

    There is absolutely nothing amiss about recognizing a true friend and at the same time administering justice to that friend, if that is your national responsibility.
    JiBut we can understand your inability to rationalize such a reality.

    As to Bushie liking Owen ….. Because Bushie felt let down by certain of his actions does not say that there are not other impressive attributes. Your “all or nothing” mentality is another casualty of our political mess of a system.

    Yours is characteristic of the kind of political mentality that guarantees our imminent doom.

    Finally, who do you want Bushie to support, given a choice between between FS and OA? …..Caswell? Stupseeee

    Why can’t we all just get along! :)

    @Bushie
    All “whats” need a who and a when…usually a how too. You’ve done great with explaining your “what” and even a bit of the how, however the who and when are very much up in the air.

    Let me also add that even with a who, a when and a how, you usually need an amenable enough “where.” Barbados is nowhere near the where that is needed for your idealistic (but much needed) scenario. and in any case, to get it to “where” it should be, the Check it outs, Davids, Millers, Caswells, Prodigals, Onions, Carsons, and exclamation marks must continue to ventilate, analyse, over analyse and plant seeds of thought, ideas, debate, dissension and yes, even doubt and disgust. Only then will the weeds eventually start to thin and plants of some substance peek out, seek sunlight and intertwine with similar ones. The ensuing chain reaction leading to a garden of flowers would inevitably follow.

    Of course, we both know all of what I’ve said is completely meaningless in the grand scheme of things.

    By the way, I’ve started to notice cracks in the armour of your reasoning and jousting whenever Stuarty is involved. Is it a soft spot for him? or for the DLP generally? or is it the disdain for all that is OSA?

    “HOWEVER, as things stand now he will get the Bushman’s vote…by default.

    I’ve never known you to be a default kinda guy. I’m tempted to ask if you are voting for Stuart literally, or for his side nationally. But then we might divulge a bit too much info in these hallowed anonymous walls. wink wink

    Just another mad salvo of rant and rave across the Bushman’s bow of pseudo- integrity.

    BU readers can attest to your constant harping about the awful lack of proper and effective managers that should be strategically placed to solve many of the social and economic problems besetting this small country. We remember the debate surrounding the Ax enquiry with you championing Jeff Broomes’s style of management as the one most suited to raise educational and wider managerial standards in Barbados. Any one suggesting otherwise on in any way critical of your stance was exposed to a barrage of verbal cannon fire with you quoting the BBE standards and expectations as the gospel to be followed, according to Bushie.

    The basic tenet you promulgate in any hiring process or even to join your BBE based political party was a screening of those offering themselves for leadership positions with Caswell being the exemplary candidate often use as the yardstick of eligibility.
    The No.1 criterion of this intense screening process is to quote: “Never put a square managerial simpleton in a round effective management hole.
    Now how can you be so treacherous to your own principles and policies?

    Barbados is at its most dangerous social and economic crossroads since the outbreak of cholera in the 1850’s and you want to back and follow a dithering vacuous nincompoop of a managerial simpleton to lead us in the right direction of survival and recovery.

    Whom do you think this sadly and poorly reflects on? The indecisive simpleton and management misfit hired by a freak (or curse) of Nature and not knowing whether he is the PM by default or if he is still in the cane field? Or the ‘know-it-all-one-size-fit-all Houdini of problem solving and human salvation, the Bushman himself?

    Who would back a johnny (man) called Fumble for leadership and elect a jackass as CEO of this country? Only a lying john(son) hiding in the brambly Bush mounted erect on a moral high horse called Barbados Biggest Equine (BBE) and pontificating principles of false hypocrisy and double standards and devoid of any partisan yellow streak in him.

    Your next move, Sir! A call for a banning of the miller or even deportation?

    The GS of the DLP, Georgette Pilgrim, has distanced her party from the subject ad in the Nation newspaper on the grounds that it does not convey any message the DLP would like electorate to identify with.

    So the question to the GS and the DLP hacks is this:
    Is the objection being made against the format of the ad or its contents?
    Are they (DLP) against the portrayal of perceived bullet holes against a picture of a wanted gangster and crook or are they against the claims of misdeeds and criminal activity carried out by the same gangster and crook with his archrival accomplice at his side in true Bonny & Clyde style?

    You are right there! Just like the vacillating Fumbler from Molasses Hill has at least eleven behind him. Only difference is that instead of bullet holes there are treacherous traitorous stab wounds the size of David Thompson’s rose hole.

It digs up the past about Owen Arthur, Mia Mottley and the BLP; it tells bajans, don’t trust them. Receipt of three S&P downgrades BEFORE 2008, Violet Beckles and Sherene Mongroo indirectly states the same, don’t trust them – Owen Arthur and the BLP. They are not satisfied with a lot of damage of which they are responsible, these especially, Al Barack and massive land fraud involving Violet Beckles – don’t trust them, Owen Arthur and the BLP.
