The Day the Local Media Blinked

Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart it is reported held a four hour meeting with members of the local press corps and addressed several issues that have been stoking national discussing in recent weeks and months. It is reported he addressed the Cahill Energy issue and that  he confirmed the government has pulled the plug on the project, however, contrary to what some have opined, he rubbished the view that government is exposed to being held financially liable for doing so by Cahill Energy. He expressed the usual rhetoric about concerns highlighted by the Auditor General in his 2015 report. Of interest to BU was his lack of confidence in the laws of the land which permit those charged with heinous crimes to be released on bail. To quote the prime minister ‘’it struck him for six’’. He touched on several other issues during his surprisingly lengthy press briefing and only time will tell if this was a sincere leader addressing his people or whether it was about espousing the rhetoric one expects at the start of the political season.

To be honest the calling of a press briefing by the Prime Minister flummoxed members of the BU household. This is a man whose period of stewardship of the country can be characterized by the words taciturn, silent and aloof. The BU household must be given the benefit of a huge doubt about the true motive of the Prime Minister’s press briefing. How many press briefings has Stuart held since the mantle of the office was thrust on him? He has refused to honestly communicate with Barbadians except when he does it on his terms usually at constituency meetings. For those who believe BU is harsh in our assessment he needs only to refer to a few of his Cabinet minsters who have echoed a similar few.

When Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart invited members of the local media to Llaro Court yesterday it was the perfect opportunity for them to have declined and send an unequivocal message to this government that the Fourth Estate must be respected. Instead they all seemed to have been intimidated by the Office of Prime Minister or were directed to attend by the bosses.

What does the Prime Minister mean when he hints that an increase in public servants salaries is in the offing if the economy improves? On the other side of his mouth he communicates rationalizing of statutory corporations will be implemented shortly. One does not have to be a rocket scientist to appreciate that there will be job cuts.  Are we not living in a country where banks are paying .25% in interest yet the Central Bank of Barbados is paying a savings bond rate of 7.5% and engaged in the printing of money based on the most recent Economic Review. Did he say he will defend the issue of the return of the 10% for parliamentarians?

Who will hold the government accountable? This is a local media who refuses to share the Cahill Energy documents with the wider public. We have posted the Ionics Freshwater Agreement and local media again has refused to share with the wider public. We have asked for full disclosure of the SBRC agreement while local media remains silent. We are aware that Bizzy William’s companies are major advertisers with local media houses. BU has taken the initiative to send links and messages to senior reporters on Facebook. Yet daily we have to listen to representatives from FLOW, DIGICEL et al being given easy access to the public airwaves. What we have is a commercialization of media products. It is only news if it fits a definition of their making.

What is a known is that with the advent of social media the traditional media will have to reform or become irrelevant, it is only a matter of time. What is known is that our politicians will have to become more transparent in policy making or bear a tarnished legacy to the embarrassment of kith and kin.

    Case in point….everyone and their mama from US, Canada, South Africa etc have offshore companies to the tune of 80 million dollars in 2015…in Barbados….do the people benefit from 1.5 to 2.5 taxes these people pay in taxes in Barbados…lying Donville said 25%..but he is a liar…I leave you to do the math, is Barbados benefitting from this arrangement, if you say yes, I would tell you, if the island benefited, it would not be in such deep financial doo-doo.

    The Swiss got it right, they been doing it for at least 70 years, reason why they are wealthy, the changing world dictates that they weed out the most vicious criminals from the arrangement.

    They know how to take care of their citizens and the people vote by individual referendum on what is best for them, yhey dont need a shitty politician to put their futures into the hands of thiefing business people, the people make their own decisions..the same cannot be said for the clowns for leaders in Barbados…they are all about self.

    @ Balance I guarantee you have never heard such negative comments about Mia as she has always been a very sociable and engaging woman with very good social skills. Sure none of us can say that for Freundel Stuart. He found himself thrust in a position of managing one of the developing world’s most progressive nations with no experience other than managing an office with a secretary and a maid and no formal management with a big ego and suffering from a superiority complex whilst he displays pure inferior behaviors.
    When Freundel Stuart could call Al Mundy his friend and I hope you are old enough to know who he is from old movie days. You should be asking yourself if this is a leader one should be proud of.

    This press conference is, in my view, merely another example of the PM’s penchant for misleading the public.

    He chose not the answer the huge number of questions raised about his administration in the recent No Confidence Motion where the Opposition could have probed his and his MP’s answers more deeply, opting instead to provide what at first blush might appear to be a reasonable case for his and his minister’s actions in a venue stacked in his favour to elicit puff ball questions and where it seems that he apparently tricked his media guests by inviting them to a feast to discuss the 50th anniversary celebrations more so than to a wide ranging press conference to show the populace that he was answering the questions raised in the no confidence motion in his own terms.

    That the PM continues to mislead the country might be indicated by analysing his comments and seemingly incomplete revelations on the CAHILL debacle.

    First, he misled the public by presenting the CAHILL plasma gasification project as one that could at any time be appropriate for a small country like Barbados by totally ignoring the fact that only sleeping MInisters could have looked at that project and taken the first step of effecting a “heads of terms” agreement without doing proper due diligence. Due diligence would have stopped it in its tracks immediately and exposed the Canadian promoters as charlatans from day one.

    In describing why he signed the “heads of terms” agreement he indicated that the agreement was vetted and approved by the SG. However “he resisted any effort to put pressure on the SG….”. Parse that carefully and see what is being hinted at there. In the normal scheme of things why should there have been an effort to put pressure on the SG? Who would have put such an effort on the SG? Why wasn’t it also stated that agreements signed by his 4 ministers on this matter were also vetted by the SG?

    Re. that agreement he said ” The stage was reached where the promoters of this project wanted an agreement signed to BIND THE GOVERNMENT…..”. The question might therefore be asked if this was the purpose of the agreement how come the high powered lawyers for the Canadian promoters were happy to agree to a document that evidently, in his estimation, did not bind the government but, as far as I recall from the BU leaked copy, clearly indicated somewhere “this binds the government”.

    The PM seems to be indicating that the Government is safe from litigation from the Canadians protesting the effects to them of our withdrawal from the agreements signed by the PM and others. Yet at a later stage in his presentation he says, as reported in the Nation of June 6th ” I don’t know that there can be any liabilities hidden anywhere for the Government of Barbados….There could be no contracting out of the statutory obligations of anyone who wants to establish a plant in Barbados”….

    But he goes on, in apparent contradiction to the above statements, “You can never stop anybody from putting you in court. A charge is not a proven offence. A suit is not a proven case either. The tragedy is, no matter how absurd a suit may be or a charge fanciful, you have to GO and answer it”.. Is that GO a subliminal admission that Barbados may indeed have to GO to England to answer such an unlikely suit?

    It seems that the Government’s legal team might have tricked the CAHILL legal team into signing a document without any teeth. So how ironclad is the PM’s indication that there will be no penalties to Government for extracting itself from the agreement? I wonder if Jeff or Caswell would put us straight on this one. I wonder if Mia would agree with the PM’s analysis, indeed I wonder if she recognizes that she has a clear obligation to pointedly and explicitly answer all the points made by the PM in his “press conference”. I wonder, in the event of a suit being brought against the Government on this matter, especially since it has to be conducted in England, if it would have a chance of being successful and what would be the likely penalties.

    This matter cries out for proper unbiased elucidation (Perhaps Kammie can do the honours). A quick perusal of the leaked CAHILL papers on BU as well as the other matters that were brought out in the various discussions here suggest that some of the PM’s statements might well be merely wishful thinking and that we might still be in some financial peril from the seeming careless signing of various agreements relating to the CAHILL scam.

    It should be noted carefully that the PM did not refer to any of the other agreements on CAHILL, signed by 4 of his Ministers whose expectations from the project were trumpeted globally about 2 years ago and exist prominently and undeniably in the electronic public domain.

    I wonder why?

    Errata;

    In my 6:40 am post I did not properly read over the following paragraph.

    He chose not the answer the huge number of questions raised about his administration in the recent No Confidence Motion where the Opposition could have probed his and his MP’s answers more deeply, opting instead to provide what at first blush might appear to be a reasonable case for his and his minister’s actions in a venue stacked in his favour to elicit puff ball questions and where it seems that he apparently tricked his media guests by inviting them to a feast to discuss the 50th anniversary celebrations more so than to a wide ranging press conference to show the populace that he was answering the questions raised in the no confidence motion in his own terms.

    It should have read instead;

    He chose not to answer the huge number of questions raised about his administration in the recent No Confidence Motion where the Opposition could have properly probed his and his MP’s answers more deeply. He opted instead to provide what at first blush might appear to be a reasonable case for his and his minister’s actions in a venue, setting and occasion stacked in his favour. It has also been suggested elsewhere that some members of the media were apparently misled by an ostensible invitation to a feast at which a discussion of the 50th anniversary celebrations would be entertained rather than a wide ranging press conference designed to answer the questions raised in the no confidence motion in his own terms and time and thereby rubbish the statutory intent of a no-confidence motion.

    Bro AC, what’s wid you and this Angelo Dundee nonsense. The man was a part of Ali life good stuff. But what is the continued point.

    If not for Ali’s superior talent Dundee would be just another trainer/promoter. If not for Dundee, Ali would still be the superstar he was.

    You went and do a lil yahoo research and now want to show off that you got a riff that no one else running. hehehe. You is one smart cookie, fah trute.

    Ahhhh Brathwaite

    I like your style.

    In the military chevrons worn during war are not the shiny ones, you know why Brafwit

    “It is a deterrent to what is quite simply called “kill the officers”.

    We on BU now can be assured that once you have been drawn to the fray that we have become irksome “gadflies” and we MUST BE SWATTED , BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

    So de ole man gine run some interference for de other soldiers that your command has said to frustrate and destroy their efficacy.

    For you to be effective you have to be

    (a) many of you (one is not enough
    (b) employ bajan as a tool of “familiarity” but even in that exercise use enough familials to Agitate, frustrate, denigrate and discredit

    You are a brighter fellow than the others, a supporter of the BLP obviously because, in all of your posts to date, AC has not drawn and fire, just the people who are proposing serious considerations of alternatives to the Troika.

    Well wunna dun know dat de ole man cyan get frighten my wunna tactics.

    Here is one of the 3 dogs that wunna get rid of

    Maybe now de people bout heah who like you like these little pissy games will wake to ef up and get serious about our future.

    I like Martin Luther King have not been slated to participate in having a Piece uh De Rock cause I am the owner of one of them Name Branded Posters that you have started your broadsides with but Brafwit any effing night I wake up and you or any of your ilk in my house, mek sure tuh kill de ole man swiftly CAUSING I GINE KILL YOU, yah site.

    And you can throw all de salt and peppah over all two uh you shoulders pun dat shyte or rub it in you coney, bless you sweet soul

    Dear BU-ians forgive the picture of the animal, it is one of three pictures that I took to show how they were killed.

    Dumb beasts whose only sin was that they guarded and/or barked when “they” came too close.

    So you got these Brafwits coming here to jeer us and talk bajan to us, to dilute and deflate the gadfly BU because it is becoming a thorn in the side and MUST BE QUASHED.

    This is the true enemy that we are now facing, make no mistake about this one, the battle lines are drawn so dem gine come fuh we Jews, and artists, and dissenters, but pretty soon dem gine be at wunna door too.

    I’ll be yah Huckleberry

    Here’s hoping that that was Bajan enuff fuh yuh Brafwit, killers of the nation.

    Brath….lol…I did not appear on Cozier’s blog for several reasons, one being it was his memorium and if he had done something as distasteful as the politicians tend to do…I would have lambasted him..but I thought it a waste of energy as well, hsd better things to do.

    Given the bajan mentality, I am not surprised that whether true or not, they would think that black players could not get into a club without a white person…or a cinema, or a school or anywhere on earth or in Barbafos, without a white person….more often than not, that is a fallacy and lie alwsys perpetrated by blacks on the island….that is their weakness and curse and why they cannot rid themselves of blight….most bajans only found out in the last couple years that there are less than 10,000 some less than 8,000 minorities on the island and that they themselves are the black majority….centuries of lies and misinformation has weakened their strengths….so when I hear stories about Cozier or any other minority…I take it with a pinch of salt because they are quite capable of spreading those falsehoods themselves with the help of black people and if the stories are true…it just proves my point about black weakness….that blacks take delight in cultivating for themselves and their future generations, no sense of self, no strenghth of spirit, no Ali spirit.

    We are on the blog to shout whispers…lol

    PUDRYR-meister you ain’t serious right. I disagree wid you about a matter and I is de enemy that kills dogs. I speak in my Bajan patois and I is an enemy plant. I describe myself as a gadfly – which in I feel I is – and I jeering and laughing at de name brand bloggers dem.

    Brother I uses to read de blog from time to time and den one day recently decided to tek de plunge right in de deep end.

    Much sorrow to burst dat real attractive subversive balloon you floated but I am just another idiot offering lotta long talk as a escape to lack of sex, lack of social intercourse and a bunch of other lack of shiiteee.

    What is more important tho is that you either got some serious effing problems or need a new brand of dog food.

    It is one thing to be pon here talking shiiitte and playing tic-tac-toe games with udder bloggers but when people killing yah dogs yah walking bout in some serious, serious cow-shiite.

    I ain’t pon heh to attack no-body yah hear…I does see enough a-dat already so why add to that bull.

    I am just another idiot PUDRYR-meister. I wouldn’t know where to start to try to squash you bro.

    Better yet riddle me this. If I am a subversive why would I start to build a FB page wid all dem posters dem you created. I haven’t published it yet but its created and I just need to close dat out.

    I hand-stand your paranoia and wid this ting we call the net everyone should be an effing enemy until you can confirm dem wid a Mafia style blood oath. So until we mek that connection cuss my coney as you like..but I is no dog killer awright.

    Given the amount of weakminded people we have all encountered on this blog, for me, over the last 3 years and as being currently advertised on US channels…..It takes strong people to make strong people…in contrast, weakminded people make others around them, who are not strong…..equally weakminded. Just imagine what happens to the children and grandchildren of the weakminded.

    In the euphoria over the election results in St Lucia,bearing in mind a Bajan contingent played no mean professional role in its outcome,today the ruling Dominica Labour Party triumphed over the UWP there in retaining the Soufriere seat by an almost 3:1 margin.
    Denise Charles of the DLP got 1342 votes and Higgs Adams of the UWP 560.
    Peter Wickham is in the Antigua Observer newspaper today lamenting the story of bribes and other inducements being offered to Dominicans based in Antigua to return home to influence the outcome of the bye-election.I am too,not in favour of overseas based nationals flying in to vote in the likes of Stuart and his Duncy Lying Pharts and then flying out and leaving the country to the mercy of Moody’s and Standard & Poors to become the downgrade capital of the Eastern Caribbean.Look wuh buhbaydus come to neh!

    Let me be very clear Brathwaite.

    Contrary to what you may think kind sir this BU site is not a “get some steam of my chest thing” as you have suggested by your own words.

    Many of us who come here do so at great peril to jobs, well being, social standing and in some cases life ergo the nom de plumes that we use, which the Blogmaster zealously guards.

    Unlike the other place(s)

    You need to step back a few steps and since you say you have been reading the blog for a while there is something that you may have noticed – Jack Bowman the Goader.

    It is not my blog but one thing that you might have seen is that this is not a Facebook spurious commentary about some “Like me or dont like me”

    When most people come here to blog we do so, not because it is an alternative to sex, or verbal flagellation, it is because many of us fear where the cuntry is going, when we sit and do the facebook thingy.

    Your style was distinctly like a Bowman variant, since it targeted certain posters.

    We dont play that sort of game or at least I dont. Things are too dire in Barbados now my man to “play” with people’s submissions

    That you have posted the various posters is interesting “for the enemy of my enemy is my friend” but for several of your entries, you were “goading” individuals and as for me, well the rapid sensitization that I employ, seeks only to say to “cyber-strollers”, THIS IS NOT A GAME.

    We all going die, this is true, and dogs will not live long like humans, but what I want you and others here to realise is that we doan come here to talk pretty, we are a part of Barbados that is tired of the DBLP shennanigans and seek to discourse how to change it.

    This BU is not about me, Brathwaite. If i should fall tonight, by these foul means, what I would hope that it does is to show where we MUST NOT GO, and that younger men like you and younger women like Hopi continue the fight until you dont have to hide your name brathwaite.

    Baptism by fire, you are a young mind that is pretty agile, but direct that skill set to solutions not goading old fools and menses who doan have long here.

    We seek serious men/women who can take us into the next 50 years and do not have time for the games while our cuntry is being junk bonded, and our nation is led by Fumblers and liars and visionless men.

    Do you feel me young Brathwaite?

    Believe me, when you get on their radar, you too going have to guard agains their terminate with extreme prejudice mindsets.

    Welcome to BU.
