One Party State

Submitted by William Skinner

Those who are not blinded by party loyalty to either the Democratic Labour Party or the Barbados Labour Party would have noticed some rather fancy political foot work, […]

over the last couple of weeks.

It seems that our struggling Minister of Finance, Mr. Chris Sinckler, is finding more common ground with our former Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Mr. Owen Arthur.

These two gentlemen have similar problems. Sinckler’s legacy will be that he failed on any and every occasion to get the economy moving in a positive direction. And we are slowly discovering that Athur’s much praised stewardship of the economy, during his three terms, is now almost demolished, by the revelations that many of the problems we have, were left unsolved. Both of them are being considered as outstanding failures.

Mr. David Commissiong, who was once in Mr. Arthur’s choir, has now determined that Arthur is a spent force; a colossal nuisance, who did little or nothing substantial, during his reign. What the erudite Commisiong failed to say is that Mia Mottley, the prime minister in waiting, has done considerably less and has far less to offer our country than Arthur. But I leave that there “fuh now” and will certainly return to it in another time and place.

We note that Sinckler is now openly embracing Arthur as a possible advisor to the DLP on economic matters. He has also associated himself with Arthur’s stand on the Dr. Maria Agard affair. Sinckler also told the students of the Parkinson Memorial School, that rougher times are ahead and Bajans need to stop complaining so much. We recall his newly found buddy Arthur saying that everybody wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die. Arthur also said that Bajans were becoming a nation of whiners. The messages are very similar: mush up de place and then blame de people.

But only those who are in deep slumber would be surprised by these developments. After all, Dr. Clyde Mascoll, who was once the major critic of Arthur’s economic policies, ended up in his cabinet!

We have a one party state peoples!

    Furthermore, the sad irony in Cow’s remarks is that his company was what the Cement Man years ago referred to as a welfare company,one which relied almost wholly and solely on bajan taxpaerys’ dollars to survive and grow.The motto ‘we move the earth to please’…is now an anachronism.

    You are so profoundly right with that remark “these are largely unread with access to the money…”

    For years now they have gotten by solely because of that money aided by 95% of a black population of slaves.

    The knighted cow, knighted by the recommendations of some of the same slaves, does now cow-tow (no pun intended) to any of the niggers who were so poor that they had nothing on their backs when they first came to word at his aptly named apes hill.

    If the apes led by their chief baboon (a genetic misnomer to be sure) were to (a) have other black apes in the same industry as Sir Cow (b) apes who were competent and could be trusted to deliver value for the dollars they solicited from the other apes the (c) if the apes would band together, the could do a Montgomery Alabama on sir cow and his racist wife Lady Hoggie, like the pet pig she has, and , for 365 days don’t buy one shy.te from the knight and let him and all de racist phvckers move the earth to please we apes.

    But that would mean dat we had intelligent apes with competence and now de sorta apes dat we got in these same industries and customers dat dem cud push we nigga heads down to the counters and ask we if we can read…

    Get closer to them and you will hear how really stupid they are…thank the lucky stars dat Dem gots money…and de Guyanese Director of Public Prosecutions in dem back pocket when dem get angry and in the stupor of the moment Lego shot dem at niggas in high gate or shoot dem…

    @ balance,
    I am not here to defend Arthur. I am saying directly to you that Mia is the most over rated politician and thinker out of the entire 30! I have followed her ministerial performance from day one and I see no evidence of anything earth shattering or spectacular.”

    Skins we have had some heated political debates right in your backyard in Atlanta concerning governance in Barbados where the majority of persons involved were pro-DLP lock-stock-barrel and when I tried to bring balance was labelled a BLP.
    I am not here to defend Ms Mottley either and all what you say might be true about her capabilities but she has offered herself for service and except for the defeat in her first outing at the polls has managed to cement herself in her constituency even when the fortunes of her party are down so much so that it has now become a Mia seat and possibly the safest seat the BLP can hold in an election. All I am saying and you seem to agree is that she is no worse than her peers and I daresay better than all of them too and if they deserve a chance to run the poor rakey parliament over which Mr Arthur presided for 14 years and again with which he seems quite comfortable then she deserves a chance too until the system of ‘ electing incompetent parliamentarians to run a poor rakey parliament’ changes.

    Just one more comment Skins. I am aware that a lot of DLP supporters who genuinely love the institution because for some reason they hold on to the myth cleverly propagandised that nothing happened in Barbados before the DLP came to power and the DLP introduced free education which opened the doors for the children of poor black people to obtain secondary schooling and the BLP in bed with the dreaded white merchant oppressors – many of these present and former die-hard supporters are ashamed at the performance of this lot in parliament representing the beloved DLP flag and criticise them with a heavy heart. The criticism is generally tongue-in-cheek.Note how they try when they offer criticism against the party they support or supported to implicate the opposition which has been out of power for almost six years.

    @Vincent Haynes,
    We must always remember: Bussa Dr. Martin King, Malcolm X. These are people who believed that we could effect positive change. Our region has produced Fidel Castro, Dr. Eric Williams, Llyod Best, Michael Manley and others. Dame Eugenia Charles, Portia Simpson etc. The major problem we have is that we are expected to be BLP or DLP. and the party leaders are elevated to god like status -they are recruiting sycophants and lackeys at all levels. Note the current situation in Christ Church West. What we have is a leader who rejects the will of the constituents; Dr. Agard does not have the deep pockets of Dr. William Duguid. Who is Duguid? Just a parliamentarian who is versed in telling his colleagues what part of their mothers’ anatomy to kiss. And I could go on- a senior attorney showing a black female colleague his back side; a speaker of the House of Assembly refusing to hand over a client’s money. That is the current status quo -it goes beyond the thirty jokers in parliament. So now COW Williams decides its his time to demonstrate white economic superiority. ” I (COW) will close Apes Hill down and turn it back into a dairy farm and employ 8 black people rather than 400. In other words I (COW) controlling ‘about here ….So we see a pattern.

    Your main point about Mia is her failure to democratise the BLP as promised?
    Skippa, that is one of the least of her indiscretions.

    Mia is an exact female(?) replica of David Thompson. Someone whose ONLY ambition is life is to become PM, and who see it, NOT as an opportunity to SERVE anyone, but to become LORD and MASTER of all.

    As Skins said so eloquently, NO ONE ELSE in local history has had more opportunities to demonstrate leadership, patriotism, commitment and love for country. However in EVERY area she has held so far, Mia has left a trail of petty, divisive, SELFISH legacies… often mixing her personal business with state business as the ultimate form of insider trading via:
    -Jose & jose
    -Arch Cot property
    -Legal services to Four Seasons
    -Unknown connections to the Dodds Contractors, The Oil Terminal people…
    -the whole Prison burning episode
    -Crab Hill police station
    -questions about the finances of the BLP being misused..
    -The whole multi-million dollar school computerisation scam -edutech
    -ICC world cup fiasco
    -Illegal bugging of Bajan’s phones with secret world cup equipment (including owing’s)
    -biting associates in unfortunate circumstances
    -threats to close down the blogs…
    …and now this seeming petty and personal vendetta against Maria…

    Shiite man, this woman is enough to force Bajans to re-elect Froon and Stinkliar…

    If the other Jackasses in the BLP can’t see this (and no doubt more) then perhaps they really are a pack of blind men in a dark room trying to catch a black pussy cat….

    Again Bushie ask of Gabriel…
    On what basis can you argue that Bajans deserve any better than we are getting…?

    I never said they were perfect. My position is that if we read The Politics of Change by Manley , we see some thinking. Same with Williams and Best. Of course the work of King cannot be denied or ignored. Castro’s influence on the region and the world is accepted. Bussa is the historical perspective. Charles and Simpson are politicians and leaders of some merit. Just saying my brother. My heroes are Sir Garfield Sobers, Muhammad Ali, Fidel Castro and Serena Williams. I have great love for the Mighty Sparrow and admire the work of Mighty Gabby. I would never pretend they have no flaws. In recent years I have grown to appreciate the tremendous contribution of Sir Frank Walcott. While Sir Roy Trotman was and remains a mentor. I am not looking for gods just those whom I believe to be a bit more than what they skills allow them to do.

    As Box Cart said, “When was the last time the populace decided anything of its own accord?” …especially a populace of brass…?

    It takes a SPECIAL quality of visionary, self-less leader, who is prepared to sacrifice themself and their own PERSONAL potential to accumulate wealth and fame – FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY.
    In addition, they need to care enough to WANT to bring a bunch of brass bowls into the light …. AND they need to have the communication skills, patience, tact and wisdom to achieve this task…

    If you look in a number of countries (like Bolivia for example,) this has happened to some extent …even where the people are no where as ‘educated’ as the local variety of brass…

    You REALLY need to lay of this ‘nay nay’ attitude. Don’t mind DIW who living up in Canada under the white man’s apron…. he could afford to talk shiite occasionally…

In addition; a lot of the above is speculative. You talking like she caused the deaths of the people at Arch Cot by selling unsuitable land or she burn down the prison for her own ends. Bushie i am surprised that you falling for this shite. Ms Mottley does not have the future of Barbados in her hands. Children of poor Barbadians have not been made to pay for their tertiary education under her watch nor has she been publicly humiliated through the display of cheque and publicly accused of diverting monies meant for party coffers to her personal bank; nor was she cited in a forensic report for receiving millions of dollars in dubious circumstances. Mr Barrow presided over scandals of monumental proportions such as seafoods; carsicott; caricargo;the harp gun; Mark Stokes;Carmen Bailey deportation; Mr Tudor was a life long homosexual; Mr Tom Adams was labelled a woman beater and all of theses honourable gentlemen were regarded as fit for high office.

    There is no doubt that Gonsalves is a charismatic leader and one who has the quality to garner automatic support support .

    Then the question is how and what would be the defining factors in the minds of the electorate for PM Stuart leadership going into the next election ,i believes his appeal has already been set and sealed in the minds of electorate by his self confidence and his determination which he has revealed in those moments of confrontation to out wit and confound his detractors in times of chaos

    “Vincent
    You can be such a jackass …and with such ease…🙂

    -Who does she lead in the polls?
    -Who took the poll?
    -Did anyone amplify her many ‘indiscretions’ prior to the ‘poll’ …as will be the case prior to elections?
    -Do you think that you should be elected PM if Petra took a ‘poll’ which showed you to be a more popular leader than Dompey?
    -What do you think will be the result of a poll now that ask “who do you prefer as PM, Froon or %%%%%”? (insert any shiite there)

    Shiite man…. these politicians DEPEND on people like you…”

    Shite man you all over the place like you choking or something.

    Bushie you really think the comments we make on this blog influence public opinion. The views on the blog has its own constituents and are but a mere microcosm of what is reflected in the wider society. That is why answers to thought provoking commentary published on BU is not even seriously pursued by the commentators and dies a natural death. I am willing to bet that a national poll if held now. would unanimously pick Ms Mottley to be the preferred leader out of all others despite the shortcomings highlighted by you and others.

    No two ways about it I love politics albeit as an armchair fan and I pride myself on being objective and logical in my approach.The rethoric does not sway me nor will I be inclined to join a party,presently I am impressed with the LoO.

    Tree falls on power lines but in an area where difficult terrain is an issue.

    24 hour response plan.

    Mobilize the DEM. Send the BDF and BL&P EMERA personnel.

    @Vincent;
    Didn’t Chomsky write a book about Corporate Welfare Bums? Any of them in Barbados?
    @Bushie. Still a few things to be added to your list. Think about it. Didn’t Rev. Matthews warn of the impending prison riot a long time and was not only ignored but was laughed at. It came o pass. Who was the minister responsible for Insurance affairs when the minister was warned by the inspector of insurances that the insurance companies were not maintaining the required balances. Ergo, CLICO

    I wonder if you and WW&Q are related ,possibly twins as you both can make sense but proceed to produce non sense at times e.g. two wrongs make a right
