Grenville Phillips II is the man behind the initiative to start the next political party in Barbados. The following was extracted from the Solutions Barbados – The Next Party.
We are a group of men and women who love Barbados, treasure our reputations, and plan to offer ourselves as candidates in the next general elections in order to give Barbadians a competent alternative. While we have some potential candidates, we need more – hence, the following.
Accomplished men and women of demonstrated integrity and leadership, who love Barbados, treasure their reputations, and are willing to present themselves as candidates in the next general elections in order to give Barbadians a competent alternative. Prospective candidates must not view politics as a career, but as a brief time of exemplary national service. Expect: long working hours, vicious personal criticisms, no pay, a slim chance of being elected, and an exciting journey.
Before you contact us, please do the following.
- Read our Solutions on the Solutions page.
- Read Harold Hoyte’s book: “Eyewitness to Order and Disorder”.
- Talk to your family and put your house in order.
We do not intend to be elected to simply wait around long enough to earn a pension. Rather, we intend to govern responsibly. A summary of our main solutions are described on our Solutions page. They are designed to address the main problems hindering Barbados’, and therefore your development. You are encouraged to comment, and we will happily engage you in discussions of how they may be improved. The improved solutions will become our promises to you.
Our guiding principle is to provide an environment where all Barbadian citizens and residents can become healthy, wealthy and wise if they choose to. Our Solutions are designed to accomplish this
Current Main Political Parties
Despite their failings, we should count ourselves very fortunate that we have been led by persons who seemed to genuinely care about Barbados. Therefore, both political parties should be thanked for their past service. However, we should be under no illusion that it takes any special competence to spend other people’s money. As a country, we are very deep in debt, and useful unsolicited advice appears to have been ignored as we plan to go further into debt.
One political leader recently revealed that that only those in the political trenches had the right to have their advice on national issues considered. Since we do not plan to stop offering unsolicited advice, and we have no desire to engage in futile exercises, then we have no choice but to reluctantly enter the political trench. If the Government or Opposition parties follow our advice, then we will leave the trench as quickly as we entered it – the choice is theirs.
The greatest obstacle to improvement lies within you, the reader – the voter. This obstacle is the fear of change. People would rather stay with what they know, regardless of how incompetent, than with what they do not know. Hopefully, after reading our Solutions, you at least know what we support, and to what we object.
It has been said that good managers try to do their best with the resources available to them, while leaders change the environment to allow for better management. We intend to lead.
