The Missing Mark Maloney Quotes

Submitted by Heather Cole

Without him even having to give one Hail Mary, we seem to have given Prime Minister Freundel Stuart a pass regarding the latest scandal in his administration. Mr. Stuart will go down in History as the weakest and most unpopular Prime Minister of Barbados. Among his failures to date are: the un-kept promises made to the electorate for two consecutive general elections, the buying of votes, the economic downgrades as well as the overall handing of the economy, increases in taxation, decline in the delivery of social services and his government’s action of not providing free tertiary education to the children of tax payers at the UWI.

He has not displayed any leadership skills either to his Ministers or to the people of Barbados. His approach does not demonstrate an ounce of responsibility towards the people of Barbados. He is so out of touch with the reality of life in Barbados that he can only be likened to a man who literally fell asleep at the wheel. Perhaps he lives in the wrong time and may have been more suitable to have been living in Medieval England as he enjoys flowery speech.

Then they are the scandals.

Under his leadership the government has been rocked with scandal after scandal making the TV series by that name quite tame. Just when you think it can get no worse, another explosion is seen and heard. The most notable of these have been the Clico scandal, the scandal involving the Speaker of the House, the Coverley Scandal, the Cahill Scandal and now the Mark Maloney and TCPD scandal.

It is a well known fact that the Prime Minister was intimately connected to three of the biggest scandals to rock the island. The first scandal occurred when the Speaker of the House was found guilty by the High Court of stealing a sum of money from an septuagenarian. It was some time during that scandal that the PM used those infamous words that have now become immortalized by every Barbadian. Amidst the allegations, when the story first broke and had not yet reached the Courts, the Prime Minister was quoted in his defense of the Speaker of the House advising him to get a Lawyer.”

With regards to the Clico Scandal, thousands of Barbadians lost their retirement savings in a Ponzi scheme involving Leroy Parris and other managers of Clico as well as deceased Prime Minister David Thompson and his wife Mara Thompson. Again in this scandal the PM delivered another quote that will remain in living memory for many years to come. In defense of Leroy Parris, he stated that “Leroy is not a Leper.”

The Cahill Scandal involved a group of government Ministers signing an agreement to build a plasma Gasification plant on the 166sq ml island without the approvals of the Town and Country Planning Department, an Environmental Impact Assessment or the usual Town Hall Meetings to involve the public. Despite the public revelation of the signed documents on the Internet, the Prime Minister’s in his own defense in a much publicized quote claimed that nothing can’t happen unless I say so.”

I cannot recall him stating anything publicly about the Coverley Scandal even the circumstances surrounding the death of young Abijah Holder.

The latest scandal involves business man Mark Maloney refusing to comply Town and Country Planning directives to remove a structure he is currently building. The Prime Minister must have commented. This brings me to the source of this article that we are missing the infamous quotes made by the Prime Minister in defense of or regarding Mark Maloney. These quotes may have again brought him into disrepute. In an effort to avoid being involved in the scandal or his name associated with the scandal or yet again having his infamous quotes on the lips of every Barbadian, the Prime Minister passed the responsibility for the Town and Country Planning Department unto Minister of Energy Darcy Boyce.

The real dilemma here is that the Prime Minister made a very short sighted judgement. While he may have won the battle, he has lost the war. He forgot the Laws of cause and effect. The Prime Minister appears to have created a psychotic monster. We now know because we have seen the evidence twice of his laughing at a young man’s death, ordering plants to be dug up and removed as well as his delusional rants that there is a ruthless, narcissistic personality on the loose. One wonders what he will do next. Does it mean that the Prime Minister himself is afraid to deal with the serial law breaker Mark Maloney? Can this lead to a matter of national security with the rise of a Bajan Mafia who believe that their entitlement puts them above our laws and that they can take out whoever opposes them? Will the rest of the population have to pay bribes to the Maloneys to get simple things done? Does it set it stone that bribery and corruption are now part of the norm for everyday life in Barbados?

One would have thought that the Prime Minister would be cognizant of the fact that Mark Maloney in fragrantly disregarding the Laws of Barbados is sending the wrong message to the rest of the population and that he would have stood up like a real man and do as the song says “I and I created a problem and I must solve it

    @ AC one more comment and then I am done with this “I say, you say and then we back to Maloney Quotes” by your man Fumbles.

    2013 was a fluke.

    THe DLP does not “win’ general elections, the BLP looses them. I will not spend any time explaining that to you because YOU WILL NOT UNDERSTAND IT.

    NEITHER IS IT MY INTENTION TO TELEGRAPH TO THE BLP their Achilles heel.

    Should one be still here, and such recourse is needed, in 2023, to deal with the Troika, you need to keep something in reserve.

    Where were you in 2006?

    I am scanning the room, in mens rea, and you “the mouther” were not there. But one of you was.

    Here is what to do then, since you were not at the table with the hierarchy of that time, go to CB who, while not in the inner circle now, is a good source of “remembrance”, go to him and ask him to comment on your simpleton remark i.e. ac June 20, 2016 at 6:26 PM #

    At the point where he responds to you, which i doubt that he will, CB does keep secrets, assimilate that response and when you have done that see if you, or the other four of you, are prepared to utter that ac June 20, 2016 at 6:26 PM # comment ever again.

    “Declaring that he is no prophet, but a Barbadian with an opinion, Stuart said: “Based on what I feel and experience out there, when the time comes, we will be returned to office because of what we’ve achieved for the people of Barbados”.

    “Keep the faith . . . . I am confident that we will all meet at the rendezvous of victory,” he told party faithful.”

    So there you have it from none other than the PM himself.

    My Sweet Piece

    He likes me a lot. But, I have drawn boundaries for anything further. I have been telling him about the island of my birth. That it is beautiful, that we have achieved so much. But, it is under severe threat by a set of vultures and preying things from two political parties. He has been reading the online nationnews and the comments on BU. He said if what he is reading is true then the leaders do not love their land or their people. So he says he will continue to do the posters as long as I provide the ideas for the design. So far it has been working out quite nicely, and we have, well been spending a lot of time together. So, you can expect some more posters. One thing he said that is so true. He said when a small country is prone to so much corruption expect chaos and the deliberate creation of confusion to follow. He says BU needs to promote the poster protest more. That a person will read a poster before first before reading a lot of long commentaries. He also said that BU needs to organise themselves like a reading online newspaper, similar to Barbados Today. He said if people are serious about saving Barbados, this is the way to go. He says you can explode your audience with that concept. Keep BU, but create a domain for Barbados News Underground. Well not sure if that one would fly but I am just telling it as he stated it.

    @ I Brathwaite

    Thanks, for the compliment and on the front of the App.

    The app was going to have a cost to dissuade the “gazers” but, as you clearly point out, what we do is about “soul” and anything else will dilute that.

    Action retracted.

    Dearest Suzanne,

    It is ironic that I Brathwaite said that word “soul” just prior to your post.

    It puts in context the enlistment of your HR and what you, while just talking to another soul, have been able to convey to a man so many thousands of miles away and have him engage in the fight.

    You know that is what absolutely confuses me.

    People who have no connection, like our “nabul” string, seeking to work to improve and change our circumstances, and to promote that which is good, that which is honest, that which is of national benefit.

    What does that?

    What is the DNA strand that does that? It befuddles me.

    As to his suggestion of Blog versus Newspaper

    I will give you the opinion of a man who knows the latter well (lololol)

    If we think that running a blog for 9 years is serious, tHe requirements of a newspaper are stupendous

    Barbados Free Press and other blogs died.

    For BU to migrate in that direction would be a huge undertaking and might cause the initiative to implode given what I have heard him say, even quite recently to Ms. Heather Cole, regarding broadcasting the message via email etc., the critical mass might not sustain it.

    Consider BU to be an optimally sized sniper team that is malleable enough to morph based on the operating environment. one man team for non conspicuousness when applicable and squadron when the occasion arises e.g. the Cahill buffoonery

    Pictures and Videos, “Stoopid Cartoons” as he pointed out are serious things which, when crafted with soul, pack a serious punch.

    Imagine what your DowLowe poster, circulated on Whatsapp, or LoopNews, are doing?

    It is all about purpose as Bush Tea said the other day, while he was explaining the concept of “perfect” and one’s/its ability to change as the circumstances require.

    This can be seen as our operations arena, where we act out our roles, as a sniper team. on this national altar of sacrifice.

    Others can do the Newspaper thing better? because they have the resources e.g. Peter Harris and Barbados Today but, and I echo I Brathwaite on this, “does he/it have the soul?”

    “My cousin Suzanne? No, my fair cousin:
    If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
    To do our country loss; and if to live,
    The fewer warriors, the greater share of honour…

    We few, we happy few, we band of warriors; ”

    That is a gender corrected version of Henry V by Shakespeare

    “We were hearing rumours of who got what in the Queen’s birthday honours list.The list seems to have been withdrawn.St Lucia announced their recipients about two weeks ago.”

    Shouldn’t this whole thing of the Queen birthday honours be done away with, given the promise made by the ruling party that Barbados ‘will’ become a republic as an indelible mark of its 50th anniversary of Independence?

    Wasn’t the Queen also warned via Her representative Prince Edward during his visit to attend the function to celebrate the 375th anniversary of the Barbados Parliament – the third oldest in the English-speaking Commonwealth aka the former British Empire- that Little England will ditch Her Majesty in 2016 in favour of a local political ass-licker, el presidente the indigenous breed of yard-fowl?

    But Gabriel why are you taken aback with the slowness of Fumble to fulfill what Stinkliar has proposed?
    A pimp title (WW&C, I crave poetic licence) for the Bjerk man the wanker extraordinaire in competition with COW & Bro for the modern-day control of the former Little England as the bigger business Duke of Bim.

    Whether it is on the Queen’s list or the local king Fumble’s slow-in-coming roll of honours, just remember that “he who pays the piper, calls the tune” (or punches the juke box or can make the download via the internet).

    All hail Sir Jerk-off Man! A knight whose contributions to bribing politicians has been nothing but stellar and of pure excellence in succeeding in turning Bim into a mafia land.

    I do not understand the position Roy Morris took in his column today.

    He seem to want to blast the public service for operating within rules and regulations.

    So because Mark Maloney is in a hurry to milk the taxpayers dry and cannot get his way when he wants, he thinks he has the God given right to go ahead and build whatever he wants, when he wants and we must sit down and take this from him?

    The average Barbadian cannot do that. Why is Mark Maloney any different from us? Hell….if banks would give black Barbadians the same treatment when we have ideas, if these black jackasses we have as ministers would give black Barbadians the same treatment that they give to Mark Maloney..wuh we would be movers and shakers too!

    Granted that a few pedophiles and Pension scammers will sometimes get through the screen but, where it comes to giving such honours away to Banana Woods Republics the British are alot more detailed in their investigations AND GLOCK WITHSTANTING, sorry notwithstanding who was holding the weapon at the time of discharge, the Queen WILL NOT sully the name of the British Empire, perpetrator of the Great Famine of India, with the name of such a one.

    I think BU is fine as it is. I believe he is suggesting the news thing because he is not only a graphics artist but designs and create web pages, design layouts for big name magazines for the organisation’s myriad of clients, and is chief editor and input advisor for our news feature and business magazine. These are just some of the hats he wears. Did I mention that he is also a top animations specialist, but that he won’t do for me free? Trust me, the posters he has done so far are all basic compared to some of the work he does for the company. I would ask him if he would be interested in putting his thoughts into making BU better. However, I doubt very much that he will. At the moment he is wearing many hats, and press for time.

Here is a perfect and timely situation for these two circus clowns to show Barbadians that they are not all callous and cold. What did the jackasses do? Confirm to Barbados that they are heartless, cold and uncaring. I bet you that these idiots will find a nice convenient reason why they did not entertain this lady. I bet one of the reasons will be that if they had given her an audience, it could send a wrong message to other Barbadians that they could do the same also. What wisdom prevail in instructing security to follow enforcement protocols, when the plight of this lady has exposed the ugly of two political parties to where their true interest lies. Cynthia Forde should be shame is shite. I dislike this woman to a T. Absolute poser and fraud.

    No amount of posters from the government can change the way they continue to mistreat their own people or enrich the few at the expense of the majority…it has gone too far.

    The republic idea seems to have been shelved.Rumour has it that the words”Republic of Barbados” will be abbreviated ROB,and seeing that this DLP administration is known as the most thieving and corrupt in the island’s short history of ‘independence’,those waiting to proudly hold forth to the diaspora that the address is going to end with the word ROB,is not going down well with Freundel and his mob.

    Ex-Nurse Wilkinson is being treated just like the elderly gentleman who was fleeced by the Speaker.
    Since that Fumble- himself permanently scarred and disabled by the curses of hypocrisy lies and ugliness- cannot tell the poor lady to get a lawyer all she has to do is to write and complain to the United Kingdom Disabled people’s Council (UKDPC) and ask them to petition for the boycott of all disabled people from visiting Barbados.
    More so, she should ask the same UKDPC to lobby the UK travel industry to have Barbados ‘blacklisted’ as a destination where the disabled are abused and their rights to justice and equal opportunities openly denied by the Government of that country.

    After the negative repercussions you would see how fast the Minister of Tourism and the same emotionally disabled PM and AG would get in on the act in a jiffy and make sure the ex-nurse gets her much deserved compensation just has fast as they did a whip-around to bail out the crooked Speaker from breaching the High Court order.

    Bang on Miller…it’s only Bajans believe that nothing can be done with the heartless beasts for government ministers and the way they treat their own people on the island…..but something can be done about them in the international arena and someone should contact this lady and let her expose what is being done to her….she has a right to treatment to ease her pain and suffering, the government and their agents are violating her basic human rights as they take such sadistic pleasure in doing to others who are injured when they refuse to pay them compensation…..it’s like an epidemic with government and the insurance companies and they have been practicing this nastiness for decades…they dont care if it’s a genuine claim, they refuse to pay particularly if the claim is genuine.

    Those 2 governments need a real wakeup call…and they will get one, they need something worse than blacklisting.

    Miller…would you believe that pimp Alvin is on the first link talking so much rubbish about this woman’s unfortunate run in with the wild animals in government. Do you believe that Alvin lives in a country that respects the, injured, disabled and people with disabilities…do you believe Alvin does not want to see this woman get her compensation, but he could never make such asinine and backward statements against any disabled person in Canada, he would be afraid…Alvin reserves all his nastiness and discrimination for his own people living in Barbados.

    Do you know there are many other injured people with claims that this solictor general’s office refuses to sign their cheques so they could get their treatment.

    Do you believe the insurance companies on the island do the same wicked things as the givernment….to injured and disabled people, they refuse to pay them compensation, refuse to pay them so they can get treatment….this needs international exposure.

    All these beasts for government ministers know to do is ROB their own people to enrich the crooked minorities and discriminate against the taxpayers….they do not adequately take care of their own people, look for every opportunity to violate their rights and disenfranchise them…..there are international laws against these dirty practices.

    There are many things contributors can do to spread the word if they feel passionate about the message. As PUDRYR suggested they can create anonymous email addresses and share with contacts. They can sponsor Facebook ads, they can post BU links to the Nation, Barbados Today and other online fora to support comment. Do you know some right here on BU – who post voluminously – manage websites and feel more comfortable posting links to the traditional media website therefore promoting those sites and NOT social media sites like BU. And they are those who wrapped themselves in the cloth of all that is good but there motives for posting are very clear to BU.

    Anyone with intelligence should know, those who live in Barbados and have to deal with the system in it’s current useless to the people state, that if positive and meaningful changes are made throughout the system, that those changes would not only benefit those people now being negatively affected….but the existing people, their children and grandchildren, who will more than likely experience the same nasty treatment…..if nothing is done, everyone will either benefit with changes or suffer the consequences without…it’s up to the people, they cannot complain if and when they too fall victim to nasty practices by governments and insurance companies.

    If all these nasty violation of human rights practices are not exposed internationally for those who have the power to push for change….the blogs will have issues to discuss for hundreds of years going forward….lol

    Word on the street indicates that Barbadians are now finding themselves in a situation where they have to choose between a lying, conniving, corrupt and a balls-less government, who sat back and danced to the pipers tune for many years ,and the arrogant , pushy ,devil-may-care Mark Maloney.

    There is a lot similarity between Greenverbs Parris and Maloney.
    Both are seen by Lord Fumble as “estimable” businessmen of the highest integrity and admired as ‘entrepreneurs’ who have made great contributions to the economic development of the country and are justified in seeing the laws of the country as red tape to be removed by whichever means.

    Both have their loyally ‘bought’ friends within the bosom of DLP as a result of heavy campaign contributions and personal gifts to a few high-ranking henchmen.

    As a result, neither pariah can be touched by the law enforcement agencies just like the importers of the tainted chicken wings condemned in the UK as not even fit for feeding to hyenas or African wild dogs on a 3 day chase.

    One is left to wonder what has become of the motto: “Pride & Industry”.

    @ David you should have a BU advertising Campaign for a week. Write a paragraph stating what BU is, what it does and welcome their participation by reading and contributing. Ask readers and contributors to share tagging 49 different friends each time they that post. We can send it around Barbados in no time. Aslo write please share when they post it.

    The position of the BU household is simple, if members of the BU family feel passionate about BU’s role as a medium then they need to step up and promote the site. We all have skin in the ‘game’.

    The posters have given BU some serious promotion. I am trying to get one or two animations but so far unsuccessful. My colleague said, a one page news letter highlighting the major topics is what he was referring too, not of the magnitude of Barbados TOday, which is too much. So I misunderstood him.

    @ David June 24, at 2:10 AM . e ” if members of the BU family feel passionate about BU’s role as a medium then they need to step up and promote the site.”

    Your blog site is like all things that grow and develop in the business world. And surely as CEO you would have made a decision on how you want your product to evolve and as obviously you are walking that path.

    But along come others who may want your operations to grow. In the business world they bring investment of $$ or talent and if you share that vision then a partnership for change is formed…otherwise they accept your offer to stay as you are, serving your client base.

    Undoubtedly, BU could use this blog as the topical driving medium for a well organized new digital newsletter, that also aggregates some news in a complete digital exposure. But that takes even more time than this and surely would only be viable, or should only be viable rather, if based on an income stream from advertising.

    Nothing earth shattering as you know, in fact its a model replicated across the net.

    So it’s all down to what you and your team want to achieve for their next eight year tenure.

    Feel free to share your ideas offline. There is an opportunity to move to a different level but is requires resources finance, time, HR etc. We can self fund, crowd fund etc. The BU household is open to ideas. We have been doing a job but perhaps the time is now to shift gears. It is time also for others to register websites and share views.

    Bear in mind it is advertising that makes the traditional website popular along with the fact they don’t cover the ‘underground new’.
