Freundel Stuart can insult leader of our party, Mia Mottley, in keeping with his signal feature to show he is in charge, all he likes. That will shed no light on the questions on the Cahill controversy […], which just keep mounting.

DLP members, the few of them who feel they must follow their woeful leader and still have the gall to speak on this matter, can attack BLP members all they wish, the questions on Cahill, from governance to acquiring land, will not be answered that way.

At this stage, when the Cahill deal begs for a comprehensive statement of fact from the DLP, the Government continues to deny Barbadians the answers they deserve, instead indulging in contradictions, spin and now even threats to people exposing this by-the-night deal.

The inescapable fact is that the Cahill deal stinks and the more the DLP fights to camouflage the smell, the more rank it is becoming. There is simply no way to cover down what from every angle, on available information, amounts to the gravest misconduct by a Barbados Government and the biggest rape of our country of sellout to unproven foreign interests.

Even the hidebound Stuart, Chris Sinckler and the DLP, must know that Cahill is not some tax that can be sneaked in, or some concessions that can be given away by stealth. Too much of it is physical and cannot be hidden. The potential to sink Barbados too great. The DLP must tell the public the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

It is now almost two years since Chris Sinckler announced a deal with Cahill, “signed by four Ministries”, and that “nothing gives me greater pleasure than to say this.” That great pleasure has not included, to this day, an explanation, a detailed statement on just what is involved in the Cahill deal.

The DLP is notorious for insulting Barbadians by refusing to disclose to the public information on projects, whether it be Cost U Less or Sandals – only for the facts to reveal excessive and unfair favouritism to the detriment of competing interests and Barbados.

But the Cahill matter is apart by itself. The BLP, which first brought the matter to light, is to be continuously ignored, as the several organizations in Barbados, which have called for clarity, and the hundreds of individuals who in all forums have expressed outrage at the sellout for a potage of mess, the conduct of the DLP in the matter and voiced concern about everything from the untried technology for a plant of the size proposed to the possible health and environmental dangers.

Not a word by the DLP except for self-condemning tit-bits about a deal not being done yet and vain attempts to support what, from its shell company origins to its clearly inept CEO Clare Cowan, is somewhat of a ghost deal in which there is a deal but no deal, no money but investors and for which the people of Barbados have to bear every single bill and input into a project that binds us for as much as 60 years.

This week was the perfect opportunity for the DLP to clarify, once and for all, the issues and ease the fears on this Cahill deal.

Freundel and co. could have used the acquiring of the 27 acres at Vaucluse to deal with the truth of the documents signed, including a letter from the Prime Minister himself, that instead of being brought to the public by the Government, have found their way to social media sites like Barbados Underground and in the hands of various people.

But welded to its shadow dancing, the DLP comes and expects Barbadians to believe that the same 27 acres mentioned in the Cahill deal, at the very Vaucluse, is magically for some greening project, which is as hazy as the Cahill deal itself.

None of the questions regarding the funding of the project, the size of the plant, the time limes, the Environmental Impact Study, the water requirements, the garbage requirements, the discussion or absence of such with Barbados Light & Power, the Government’s – meaning the people of Barbados – liabilities…..not a single question was answered.

This is how Barbados is now ruled. By a mob, laws unto themselves.

That behavior took a turn for the worst in the Senate where Verla Depeiza displayed all the ignorance about the Cahill deal that is like a fog around members of the DLP, most of whom have steadfastly refused to utter a word on the subject, and all the venom of a Government that feels it is unanswerable to anyone. She should have adopted her usual stance of saying nothing. Or at least take her own advice and educate herself before becoming frenzied.

But she managed to mangle the properties involved in plasma gasification, mixing up outputs such as ethanol and hydrogen as energy sources from the plant, again in futile attempts to justify the deal.

More dangerous, in response to BLP Senator Wilfred Abrahams reading a letter from the office of the Prime Minister which confirm a deal, Depeiza, instead of dealing with the document, issued a tirade about the leaking of documents and that those who do are committing treason and should be punished according.

What an outrage! Crack heads, censure Charles Morris, threaten Dr. George Belle with sedition. Charge anyone who dares to do what the Government should be doing with treason. This is the great DLP.

And in 2015, a Senator, on a project such as Cahill, which amounts to a public project seeing how much Government has to foot and input, goes further and summons the stupidity to impart that ‘if everything was supposed to be in the public domain there would be no need for the Official Secrets Act.’

Colossal despotism from Depeiza typical of the DLP. What about the Cahill deal should not be known to the public?

On the contrary, everything about Cahill needs airing and clarification. As with so much over the years, the DLP is compromising Barbados’ good name and compounding what should be a simple matter by its refusal to come clean.

It is time for the circus that is Cahill ends. From the ignorance of Cowan herself on the proposed plant, to her missives referring to Government officials in derogatory fashion, to her reported conversations with her obeah woman. From the contradictory statements from Government Ministers to the exposure of what appears to be Government documents – not denied – to the entire world. From the dilly-dallying on what exactly is the Cahill deal to what are the binding requirements.

The DLP is fooling no one. There will be no camouflage. No cover-up.

    Cow-an and her psychic Cindy could not call Fruendel and his ministers uneducated and unknowledgeable if they had not gotten involved with her in the first place. When you lie with dogs you get fleas. Swim with sharks, you need lots of bandaid.

    They have a nerve that their response via their dummies is to think they can seek to distract by accusing concerned citizens like criminals and asking for punishment when the ministers are the ones who are treasonous.

    Verla Depeiza sat down on the platform behind David Thompson at the famous Haggatt Hall meeting in 2008 as he showed on massive TV screens documents from government files from the Ministry of Public Works for all to see.

    She had no problem then……that was all well and good as the DLP had an election to win……….there were no shouts of TREASON or calls for David Thompson to be jailed………..this was fun for her and the Maxine McClean then.

    If it was alright for DT to have government files in his possession in 2007/8 and you said nothing, you are a hypocrite to be calling out BU and Wilfred Abrahams now.

    Maxine McClean is a deceitful woman.

    On VOB’s programme she repeated said that she was not for any party. Suddenly as soon as the DLP won, she was named in the cabinet and leader of government business in the Senate. You would have to be an insider to get that pick. It is said that she also had a hand in manifesto as well .

    She went along with all the lies the DLP told……..30,000 Guyanese in Barbados that want sending home. When she was challenged on VOB after she was made a minister, she claimed they did not know …….Kellman called in and said 30,000. I still maintain to this day that it was her initial dismissive attitude that was the cause of the Myrie confusion.

    Bloody liars………….I have no problem with people supporting their party but dont lie like she did while on VOB. David Ellis said he was fooled by all of the moderators who turned out to be DLP and said it wont happen again.

    Come on, Prodigal! How can it be on when the figment-of-Cowan’s imagination investors have not yet pledged the $700 million including the cut for Minister ‘Blackmout’ and his musketeers in corruption. It was never on in the first place. It is just a scam to line the pockets of the corrupt politicians with taxpayers’ money in the form of legal fees, consultancy fees and finders’ fees and who see service in the interest of the country and its citizens as service for their own self-aggrandizement and a means of acquiring wealth on the cheap.

    But I might just be wrong. Maybe the investors for the same Cahill/Verla Depeiza project are among those queuing outside the sincere Sinckler’s office ready to invest in the All Seasons restart since 2010, the Pierhead Marina to be named after Quisling Boyce and the Sugar Point Cruise Terminal to be named after Maxine McDirty.

    “But the Cahill matter is apart by itself. The BLP, WHICH FIRST BROUGHT THE MATTER TO LIGHT (Capitals by the PDC), is to be continuously ignored”. Reproduced from the above article.

    That idiotic and lying charge (in CAPITALS above) by writer of the article can be construed by the PDC as one of the countless reasons why the Damned DLP and the Blasted BLP must totally absolutely go in this country.

    When Kammie Holder and many others from the Future Centre Trust had long time ago been helping to get the public’s attention focussed on this Cahill scandal, the ghost writer of this BLP missive was neither to be heard or seen on the matter of what was then a growing public concern, nor was this intellectually and politically backward, bankrupt and discredited BLP.

    Yet years after, some jackass writer wants to erroneously, falsely, misleadingly claim, and in a very arrogant and deliberate and reckless way, that it is the BLP that first brought the matter to light.

    More damning is that the stupid writer did and does have the intention of some what attempting to take away from the constructive and informative and educative efforts of Mr. Kammie Holder and co., in seeking to have got many sections of the Barbadian public apprised of what has now become a scandal of epic proportions.

    You see that is one of the reasons why we in the PDC are very wary of how we seek to raise many issues and problems in this country, whereby having been at the forefront of attempting to or actually having been at the forefront of actually raising the consciousness of many people in this country, about the rightness or wrongness, the truth or falsity, etc., with regard to certain aspects of these particular issues and problems, it could be found that either of those two backward and corrupt factions could – having been watching on to see where the politics and public’s interest goes – then later seek to jump on board and run with the issues, and even claim most outrageously that they were the first to highlight them, the first to get persons involved around them, etc., even without the slightest reference to the unvarnished historical facts of various people having been involved in the issues prior to their involvement (no where in that BLP article is mention made of Kammie and co efforts), primarily because it would be politically expedient for them to do so, to gain for themselves political mileage.

    And clearly this is what we saw coming with respect to the BLP (which is as equally backward and despicable as the BLP) and this Cahill scandal.

    Whereas for Mr. Kammie Holder and co this issue has long been centered on the whole aspects of the issue and especially where the public’s interest is at stake, for Miss Mia Mottley and the BLP it is primarily to do with the politics of the issue and what the BLP stands to benefit politically – and in a very partisan way – from the issue.

    So Hamilton Hill is somewhat correct, that if the poor the poor people of this country must survive, they must make sure that they remove these “two wicked, self-serving and corrupt” DLP and BLP factions.

    What members of this government have never grasped – some of them – is that communicating with the public is an important strand in the governance process, especially with a key stakeholder; the public. You cannot withhold key information from the public you have been elected to serve and do not expect other factors like leaks and a surging social media to fill the vacuum. You should not expect to spend billions on educating people and do not expect some of them will expect and demand accountability. If you (government) continue to ignore ud (the PEOPLE) there will be consequences.

    The following excerpt was taken from page 47 of the DLP’s 2008 election manifesto, “Pathways to Progress,” section 22 “Good Governance.”

    The DLP administration’s ATTITUDE to ACCOUNTABILITY WILL BE BASED ON THE UNDERSTANDING THAT AS SERVANTS AND REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PEOPLE THERE CAN BE NO SECRETS OR MATTERS TO BE HIDDEN FROM THE POPULATION. Consequently, a DLP administration will be accountable for its actions and policies and take the public into its confidence.

    Under a DLP government, the people will be kept informed of what the government is doing on their behalf through:

    • Regular press briefings following meetings of the Cabinet of Barbados

    • PRESS BRIEFINGS by Ministries/Departments to inform Barbadians of major developments and changes

    • THE PUBLICATION OF DETAILS OF AGREEMENTS AND CONTRACTS INVOLVING THE GOVERNMENT AND ITS AGENCIES

    • FORMAL MINISTERIAL STATEMENTS AT REGULAR INTERVALS ON THE PROGRESS OF ONGOING PROGRAMMES AND PROJECTS

    • A revision of and adherence to the rules regarding Parliamentary questions

    You have a point, WW&C

    Perhaps you may have realized that government ministers, including Stuart, seem to think that ONLY DLP supporters/party faithful should be made aware of government policies. Rather than engage the public, they see it fit to discuss such issues at CONSTITUENCY BRANCH MEETINGS, while those persons involved in formulating policies are accommodated at the DLP’s Friday “LUNCH TIME LECTURES.”

    Additionally, as I have often stated in this forum, the DEMS promised to introduce ITAL within 100 days of forming the government in 2008. 9 years and 10 months after, we are still awaiting any legislation associated with transparency and accountability. However, these same individuals, by their actions (e.g. the CAHILL scenario), have justified why they are so reluctant to “make good on their promises.”

    Alvin…..you totally missed the point, as usual…..the operative word is LIVE in NY, Boston Toronto Canada, London, etc where they LIVE the governments updates them on what affects them in the country where they live, the leaders in those countries do not travel to Barbados to tell them what affects them in NY etc. Bajans LIVING IN BARBADOS should not have to wait until their leaders travel to NY etc to hear what affects their lives in BARBADOS, what’s so hard to understand about that….Alvin.

    Bajans living in the diaspora could easily hear what affects the lives of bajans living in Barbados from news originating out of Barbados, this is the information age. BLP leaders are also guilty of the same thing as though Bajans living in Barbados have no right to hear about matters which affect them, a la Verla Depeiza and Maxine McClean, two ignorant females. Alvin you have a goddamn Ph.D why did I have to simplify something so elementary for you. I will charge you next time.
