Son of the Soil Sir Frederick “Sleepy” Smith KA MBE QC 1924 – 2016

Sir Frederick “Sleepy” Smith KA MBE QC 1924 - 2016

Sir Frederick “Sleepy” Smith KA MBE QC 1924 – 2016

Sir Frederick ‘Sleepy’ Smith has died at the age of 92.

Sleepy was the first Attorney-General of an independent Barbados, former Chief Justice of the Turks and Caicos Islands, president of the Court of Appeal of Grenada, assistant Attorney General of Cameroon and a justice of the Barbados Court of Appeal. Along with his brother, Vernon Smith QC., he founded the legal firm of Smith and Smith. He also worked on revising the Constitution of the Cayman Islands. Sir Frederick was also an author and his book, Dreaming A Nation, is available on Amazon.

In later life, after his retirement, he hosted a radio talk show where members of the public could call in for legal advice. This inevitably led to a run on the services of his former law firm Smith and Smith. He will always be remembered for his selfless service to ordinary people everywhere.

Sleepy was the son of Cecil Gladstone Smith and his wife Lilian Angelique. He went to school at Combermere School and Harrison College and studied law at Gray’s Inn.

Sleepy was a founding member of the Democratic Labour Party and was on its first Provisional General Council and became first party Chairman. He was subsequently elected to the Barbados House of Assembly. In 1966, he became Attorney General and was knighted in 1987.

Sleepy is best known to the foreign press as lead counsel for the Great Train Robber, Ronald Biggs, whom he saved from extradition to the UK when Biggs was kidnapped in Brazil and brought to Barbados. The standing joke was that as Biggs departed Barbados en route back to Brazil in a private jet, celebrating on chicken sandwiches and champagne, the fees of Smith and Smith remained unpaid and have never been paid. But Sleepy didn’t care, then or later.

Bajans of all walks of life will remember and mourn the passing of this, one of our greatest sons. One who never forgot his roots and always spoke his mind with brutal frankness, not a characteristic of politicians, but which, with his laconic style, instilled calm, trust and confidence in all. BU often recalls the incident when Sleepy, in a major address, said, “It appears to me that judges in Barbados think they have a constitutional right to be stupid.” When later a colleague asked him how he could have said such a thing, the reply was typical. “Wait, did I lie?” asked a genuinely perplexed Sleepy.

Requiescat in Pace, Sleepy.

    If there is one thing one could say for ‘Sleepy’ is that he was not the regular Bajan, yes man.

    We remember well when Barrow went to Miami, on sabbatical, and left Talma in charge.

    ‘Sleepy’ argued that it was because Barrow wanted to call home to tell Talma what to do.

    Sleepy, said ‘not me though’

    It is for the historians to make the critical evaluations of his wider public involvement/s. But on its face, ‘Sleepy’ was one of the very few Bajans who seemed to be more open to ideas other that those which he was expected to hold. We think!

    And that is a good thing, even now. The popular narratives seem to be getting narrower and narrower since the heyday of ‘Sleepy’s’ generation.

    Sleep well, old man with the drooling, unique, voice!

    Sleep well, ‘Sleepy’

    “Sleepy” was a giant before he ascended (descended?) into the political arena and stands out even more today when one considers the calibre of some of those who followed him.

    ADPite to the core who was close to EWB a vigilant observer remembers his tirade against OSA for denying him the opportunity to purchase his Gov’t issued vehicle as was the courtesy extended to Jurists on their retirement.

    Lastly is Mia a NYT obit writer? She is always at the ready with quotes about well- known Bajans and other Caribbean leaders as soon as they depart for the Elysian fields. The NYT obit writers have obits prepared of many famous Americans so when they kick the bucket they only have to change a few words here and there and press “send” (Ask them for the draft of BHO or the nowhere man of indeterminate hair colour). One would have thought that BT would have approached FJS given Sleepy’s Party affiliation and service to the Gov’t and people on the rock but he must be consulting his Livy for a suitable quote.

    Well played “Sleepy”

    I totally underscore the above sentiments.

    Sir Frederick was certainly the real ‘primus inter pares’ when it comes to integrity, decency and humility in public life. He represented the true embodiment of the humane spirit that the founding fathers of the DLP (beginning with Charles Duncan O’Neal and his Democratic League) dreamed for that once illustrious party.

    May ‘Sleepy’ rest in peace as Light Perpetual guides his everlasting spirit of goodness!

    Rest in Peace Sir Frederick

    Honourable Blogmaster, your 8.54 a.m. post showed me a few things

    (a) how more and more i realise I know less and less about the vastness of this life and certainly so close to nothing of Barbados and Bajans

    (b) that we have the Joy Springers of this world who are able to craft some sterling storylines that are to be envied by any National Geographic item. It was and is indigenous and real and to be commended

    (c) that here in this video we have a real and true National Treasure that should be on our T.V day and night exhorting young bajans to strive for excellence and that real poverty as men like Sir Frederick knew is not a deterrent

    Thank you very much for that Gem of Barbados’ Treasures that you pulled from your archives.

    THis was a real politician

    @ Freedom Crier

    I have to say that I do not read what you write because, as a self confessed “Sand Nigger” your words not mine, your writings about socialism do not catch my fancy, so I scroll past your posts as many do with mine

    Today I realised how, in addition to being highly opinionated, how much of a bigot I was when I saw that youtube post on “Going Home – Andre Boye and the Mormon Temple.”

    I have seen the Mormon Church in Maryland, walked in its behemoth structure, one that can be seen for miles on the Beltway.

    I have seen from “up close” the Mormon Church and its philosophy and practice against Blacks in the USA, and here in Barbados (pretend to pray with old people, repair old people house, get the old people sign over the property to the church and discommode the black estate when the old people die and keep on renting the property)

    Added to that, I looked and the singer and I wondered about the anomaly of a black man in that den of iniquity.

    But, because the item was about Sir Frederick, and his “going home”, I clicked your item

    And like the hymnal.net of Georgie Porgie, I stood spellbound as the item played and this Black Man sung, in this racist church, and when it was finished, and the Credits came down, a thing most strange occured.

    In addition to the peace of the song, I was humbled by the fact that, even in the mist of my pre conceptions, here was a melodic voice that, like Cohen’s Hallelujah, in addition to doing justice to the recent passage of Sir Frederick, brought me to appreciate Sir Frederick’s own words per his iminent departure and the Hope that he held onto.

    The song brought your humble servant and bigot peace but showed me how GOD, in His Infinite Mercy, can work on preconceptions, at anytime and anyplace, and use anyone or anything to show HIs Will.

    There is a contradiction. You say ‘son of the soil’ and the KA MBE QC follows

    We were a bit disappointed when Sleepy actively sought to be GG.

    The competition brought back some of the useless competition about where people went to school, who was a classical scholar and who was not, who was able to change from Latin to the hard sciences, what score people got in the 11-plus exam, which school people went to, the status of ones parents, and so on.

    We thought he would have been good at anything but, in retrospect, would’ve preferred another kind of discussion.

    You have chosen ‘clients’ that are unlikely to find an impartial jury.

    You may find that the jury is deeply contaminated with personal experience.

    That there might not be a single lawyer in Barbados who has not robbed Beatrice Henry, or other namesake, appears to be infinitely impossible.

    That that question is to be your point of departure places your back against the wall, a legal wall.

    It is a wall from which the odds are great that your ‘clients’ are not likely to prevail. LOL

    We would like to suggest that those perceptions could be changed in the short run by taking 10 simple steps.

    The first maybe setting up an independent escrow agency and stop lawyers from asking people to do that which makes clients give up rights to property (posession) to members of a profession with declining prestige. LOL

    Surely, the profession itself should be asking for this protection. In the absence thereof certain conclusions maybe be drawn.

    Throughout his representation of the St.Michael South Central constituency, Sir Frederick was ALWAYS accessible to his constituents. Under his watch: housing , road repairs and employment increased and he was frank in what he could and could not do. Stories of Sleepy assisting all and sundry are legendary. He was both down to earth and a scholar of distinction.
    Barbados is indeed poorer for his passing.
    May he rest in peace.

    @Violet Beckles,

    Is there any member of the legal profession in Barbados who did not “rob” Beatrice Henry and/or your namesake?@@@

    Well Jeff the answer is Yes they are many , first of all your name is not on Beatrice nor Violet Beckles list that I or we see, There are lawyers that know who did what and turn there heads in shame, They are lawyers whos name dont show up but still move land title deed for gain even so they were told or found out the truth for self ,Money is a what make them move, All members of the DLP and BLP past and today knows,

    They look to make laws, rules and Acts to hide their crimes ,To keep what dont belong to them . The holdings of all can be found who did and who claimed not to know but did can be found out by seeking a ” Clear Title deed,and not Good title”of 20 year,If that was the true law and case Jewish would had never be able to have their Gold returned that was hidden in Swiss banks by Germans.

    As we seek for Barbados to solved their own problem we watch the levels of misconduct done by title Pimp holders we to look up to,

    If you own land in Bim Jeff, i, We ask you do you have a clear title?
    This Question is for you to see for your self, NHC nor the new UDC own no land,
    Its all Stolen by lawyer and AGs and reaffirmed by people named in other post,

    All are not lawyers, Ask William Skinner, We are not mad at him , We seek truth for the National Trust books are lies, We have the deed witch read Bay great house on the Deed that his own family have read for her self, Shara Clarke as we drive there to see the repair going on. He dont have to move but he needs to pay his rent.

    You have chosen ‘clients’ that are unlikely to find an impartial jury.@

    We all know right from wrong and so do you, A jury is there to seek the truth based on evidence , We have it , the Fraud fraud squad have it, All Ministers the law makers have it,The AG, CJ, COP DPP, and many people before Me, Have we for gotten the Oval?

    All the books that the same people put out are there We have them , so they also have to have them ,pick the plantation you live on, just one, see if you are a lucky one that is not in this.

    Barbados did not wake up one morning and the world changed, The white People of Barbados can not be blame for this , The lawyer ground ZERO is black, the AG black , the Ministers Black, the only Person who white we found down the road and looking back was H.W Clarke and now his Son Steven Clarke who died hiding the papers, That he was paid for in cutting up the land, Now it lands on his wife looking to sell her house in Rockley , Next now its his grand Son in England who now looking to hide the papers,

    So with Sir Sleepy, Sir Richard, Sir Cow, Sir David Simmons,Sir Henry, Sir Forde, Sir Hillary Sir Sir all made their rank by hiding the truth, We pay and study lies at UWI , So that part need not to be learned until they are ready to teach the people the truth of their History.

    The White businessmen are being used to make money for the ministers pockets, net worth before office during office and after office, case in point Patrick Todd, from off Baxter’s Road across from QCrook Ralph Thorne and his brothers renting a house from and Indian Woman to taking over store or shop for rent , lost election and the crook PM kept him working, A man that use to come by Violet house begging for land,

    America have its problems ,and so do Barbados and England, but ours can be fixed, We need not look for white to fix this or blame them , just like the lawyers in Bim they will ride this till the end then point blame as i am now.

    All we need is the 40 % who did not vote and the younger voters that have been living this lie for 8 years under the DLP and 14 from the time they were born under the DLP.

    Sir Smith with all his title could have should have stop these crimes against Barbados, Now I have to deal with it in St Michael South ,We hold the plantation deed for Bay and Brittons Hill Plantations , So we can help the People Have Clear title , and have the people build on land and have the banks come back to Barbados to give loans,

    Firsr Caribbean will Fall for that was Beatrice Bank that COW and HAM took over .Take your money from them , its also where CLICO played their games and laundering of fund,

    Well Well,
    How is it that you haver never gotten accustomed to the fact that you were defeated in 2008 and again in 2013, and since then you have waged a constant war against the government? What makes you think it will be any different next time around? Don’t forget the outcome of the election is not based on YOUR opinions, but on the opinions of the almost one hundred thousand people who vote. You realize that despite your protestations the water problem is being solved, the Sam Lord’s Castle project has begun, the economy has improved and keeps improving, unemployment is dropping, crime is down; despite some sensational news, and in spite of elements who have agenda, the stability of the island is being maintained. .Be patient and all will be well (well). Deal with that!!
    For Miller, as I told you, the Sugar Point project has not been abandoned,. The EIA recommendations were for the removal and transplanting of some of the Coral which would have had to be destroyed because of the dredging required. This was done, and they have to be given time to re-grow before construction could be started. Be patient.

    Alvin…the only one here with the psychological problem is you…I was not in Bim in 2008 or 2013, only you and the ACs can turn a tribute to a deceased into a political pimpinģ and yardfowl event……I dont do politics but will make sure and make an effort to see thst yall scum that turned the island into a laughing side show since 2008…never get to do so again.

    You are not a psychologist…you have never seen me let alone examined me, yet here ya are diagnosing me….and I am the one with the psychological problems.

    Ya better look in the mirror and confess ya sins..yardfowl.
