Government Blames Workers

Here we go again shortly after shameful admissions by the Director of the Urban Development Commission of the waste of taxpayers money by incompetent management now we have the Minister of Finance complaining that politicians are taking the blame for management and he mentioned Ministry’s of Water, Housing, and Environment and there are others where management is paid more than the politicians. But hold on a minute I may be wrong but are not the Ministers IN CHARGE! Do not forget where the buck stops so if the highly paid management is not doing the job get rid of them. Private companies would not and could not afford bad management and even if they had to pay off someone it would be done so why not in any Ministry. What has happened to 2 verbal warnings and a written warning and the dismissal or does that not apply to government employees?

With no clear title found out by you minister Sink man and the IDB.The land at that time was for Kensington plantation of 73 acres,Later then there was SinkMan, Todd 2 good crooks covering up to take for self after the BLP, now the DLP taking their turn teeeefing ,
    Ask the Question , Where is over 18years of VAT?
    How many people paid for land and still have no deeds from the DBLP government
    Why dont out side banks not give the people or the DBLP loan?
    Why they can not find the missing houses,?
    Why have none of these Bitches been charged?
    How much land does lawyers and white people in Bim with big money dont have title deeds to land , Just land tax biils?
    Why if COW own so much land why is he not allowing them to get water,?
    Why is it said that the DPP is from Guyana and a well know crook in Barbados? Is he?

    Why is the Global Reset going to drop on Barbados like a H – Bomb?
    Why are the banks leaving?

    The Stinkliar has me confused.

    Did not he and his ilk put all of the same non performing managers in place?

    Were these same non performing managers those who stayed the course with the DLP who were given a place at the trough to feast on the fatted calf?

    Was it made clear to them then that they had to perform and not only feast?

    Is it not a fact that these same non performing managers are the creatures of the various ministers and carry out their mandates?

    So bearing in mind all of the above, Mr Stinkliar how could you blame these lackies when they are only carrying out the rules and regulations you morons set?

    Wait, why after all, you all have performed so poorly especially yourself, Lowe, the PM …….so you cannot talk……..you are overpaid as far as I am concerned, were you to be appraised annually, there is no way in hell that you could be in the same job…..you would have been fired long time.

    Stinkliar, you are bold though……….how could you in all good conscience criticise anyone for performing badly

    This nonsense of “we the people” is the most stupid thing that happened to Barbados.We the people,to be exact 40% of the electorate decided we are not voting for either the DLP,or the BLP and look where that stupid action has landed us,in bare poop.Stuart,the 8-4 PM doesn’t have a clue and our stupidity of “we the people” got only ourselves to blame.
    Since Sinckler and the same stupid PM have realized that there is no management of the scarce resources of the country,they have resorted to the blame game.The first casualty will be the great booby Worrell.The IMF will insist on it this time around.They are coming soon however the 30% government of “them,those people” are using the 50th anniversary preparations to ward of the visit however the crap will hit the fan early in the New Year.Its going to be cat piss and pepper in George Street.

    The planned zones to shop with foreign currency are simply a test what will come soon: devaluation.

    Surely, the ministers, high bureaucrats, lawyers, pastors and their families will be paid in USD to preserve the means to buy food in Massa Super Center, whereas the masses can spend their useless BBD to buy milk and milk for 50 BBD each in some rum shops.

    That means total segregation between the 90 % of the masses without inflow of USD, GBP, EUR, CHF and the privileged 10 %. A system of financial apartheid between the BBD-townships and the USD-gated communities.

    Will be interesting to see what will happen from December on. In theory, they could sell Mercedes and all the other stuff in these segregation zones for very competitive prices. We will see how it works. Can we use our USD/GBP/EUR/CHF credit cards or do we need to pay in cash?

    As soon as we get the zones, the real value of the BBD will drop to zero without any official devaluation. Ups! Might I remind Venezuela? In other words and to sum it up:

    Devaluation from December 2016 on.

    “…….now we have the Minister of Finance complaining that politicians are taking the blame for management and he mentioned Ministry’s of Water, Housing, and Environment and there are others where management is paid more than the politicians.”

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Perhaps Sinckler should have provided evidence to substantiate his claim that managers in the civil service are paid more than politicians.

    From April 1, 2016, the PM’s salary was supposed to receive a salary of $203,175.60 per annum or $16,931.30 per month, in addition to travel allowance of $4,903.20/m or $21,834.50/m.

    The other ministers were to receive $152,382.00 ($12,698.50/m), entertainment and travel allowances of $2,014.19 and $2,715.50 per month respectively, which totals to $17,428.19

    According the schedule of personal emoluments, the “super scales,” from S9 to S1, varies from $71,025.72 ($5,918.81/m) to $147,926.19 ($12,327.18/m).

    Whereas the Auditor General, for example, receives a salary of $12,327.18/m ($147,926.18/pa), the inept minister of housing is paid $17,428.19.

    Based on the above information, is it reasonable to conclude that Sinckler has once again been a bit stingy with the truth?

    And if we are discussing blame, the minister of the environment, Denis Lowe, National Conservation Commission’s general manager Keith Neblett and the NCC board of directors should have accepted responsibility for the injustices that occurred during the NCC’s retrenchment programme, and resigned, especially after the ERT ruling?

    In the coming weeks and months this DLP government will blame everyone and everything, everything but themselves of course. This will not surprise anyone in Barbados.

    They going to blame the civil service, the private sector, the BLP, the rating agencies, the international community, the regional governments, the justice system and even the people of Barbados in the end.

    This DLP government has been a COMPLETE FAILURE in administering the affairs, economic and social, of the state of Barbados. They will have had 9 years in February 2017 to turn things around, they have not and will not be able to do so.

    I noted with much interest that the Minister Finance made not a single reference in the Budget his Home Grown Strategy to create much needed growth.

    The last thing and hope for the DLP to is buy a horse named BREXIT and ride that to the finish line. Rest assured the DLP has a horse named BREXIT.

    Barbados is one of the few places in the world where companies go bust and the gardener gets fired.

    You cannot push a rope.

    In the rest of the world promotion brings longer hours, more responsibility, more accountability. In Barbados, especially the snivel service, promotion brings the right to come in late, leave early and fire orders around; there has never been accountability.

    The fundamental problem is that politicians’ only qualification for office is popularity. The only member of the current cabinet with any business track record in Kellman and every time he opens his mouth that reality seems more like a matter of luck and less like the result of applied skills.

    There will be no economic recovery under Fumble’s Fools.

    To be correct, the Rhodesian system of democracy had an education qualification, not a race qualification like S.Africa or Greece who invented democracy. The black majority population of Rhodesia mostly did not meet the education qualification with the obvious exception of the CIVIL SERVICE.

    I bet most Zimbabweans and Bajans wish they/we had some kind of voter qualification now.

    The problem with incorporating socialism and democracy is that the majority will always vote for more freeness; but eventually every socialist system runs out of other peoples’ money.

    Before the last election the D’s knew they would have lose the elections and so they ran the economy into the ground so that the population would be able to say “see they (the B’s) can’t handle the economy”. After winning because of Arthur, they found themselves in the position they were hoping the B’s could not recover from or undo the damage they did to Barbados.

    Now they are pulling the sane nasty stunt by sinking the country even further into the dodo than that last time.

    The new Government is going to catch hell to fix the economy after the damage done by this NON administration. The Treasury will be totally wrecked of foreign reserves because of the money Worrell won’t stop printing and because of the hugh payouts to friends and family members to get their kickbacks. The construction industry for for fraudsters will flourish and that for the minorities will crumble.

    As for accountability of ‘party lackies’ called heads of departments placed there by Ministers to rig the whole system. The comment by ‘Frustrated Businessman aka ‘Nation of Laws’ my ass. August 23, 2016 at 7:04 AM’ is as correct as it can be, but Barbados will continue to stand whatever these people that should be in Dodds do to us.

    ? Is Bjerkham (the construction magnate and one of the directors of the Central Bank) advising Worrell correctly? Something is seriously wrong here.

    The article on Zimbabwe is instructive insofar as the action of “legal” dissent using social media.

    “Popular electronic outlets for citizens to air their views like call-in programmes and Internet blogs ought to have a “framework of accountability.”

    These were the words of then Deputy Prime Minister Mugabe Mottley now leader of the Opposition and soon to be the next Prime Minister of Barbados who now speaks of the “Rule of Law” much like the perpetual motion of the pendulum swinging, mercurially?, from one side to the other, depending on if the matter is for or against her.

    We here in Barbados are under similar siege by the incumbent, soon to be absent, party of the Demonic Labour Party.

    We do recall the recent rant of Senator Verla Depeiza in response to BLP Senator Wilfred Abrahams’ reading of the letter, from the office of the Prime Minister which confirmed the Cahill Deal.

    Depeiza, in classic “suck Fumbles’ pooch” style gave her now infamous tirade on how “leaking of documents is treason and those found doing it should be punished”

    For those of you who are not au fait with the laws of Barbados, Barbados states that murder and treason are punished by death by hanging.

    So imagine the crass idiocy expressed by this “pooch licker” who states that for the act of “whistle blowing which showed that the Prime Minister was indeed privy to and part of the Cahill Fiasco, the person who provided that document, as a civic responsibility, to confirm the complicity of Fumbles in the Cahill Scam WAS TO BE HANGED!!”

    Do not try to rewrite history, Rhodes was a racist, beast and thief..

    As always WWC, you are large on rhetoric and short on facts.

    I never denied that Rhodes and his gov’t were racist, that was not my point. My point was on historical fact. Rhodesia’s political system was not based on race, it was based on the qualification of individuals to vote; that qualification was education.

    Now imagine if we had a system of voter qualification based on national contribution such as PAYE, NIS, pension contributions, real estate ownership (property tax contributions) etc. etc. I.E in order to determine the future of this country you should have a stake IN IT, not a free ride ON IT.

    Would all the Grantleys flying around last election in the seas of unemployables of this country have had the huge negative impact it did? I doubt. I don’t think most Bajans are as stupid as the outcome of the last election proved us to be.

    As practical as you make it all sound, the population on the island is still less 300,000 people, it’s still a black majority nation, the less than 8,000 minorities on the island still carry the Rhodes mentality of thinking they entitled to thief everything…particularly too many of the business people, they still bribe the politicians, the politicians still extort bribes, so how will anything change Frustrated.

    As Frustrated mentioned, shopping with USD/GBP/CHF/EUR cannot be confined to a certain zone as long as everybody can shop around within the zone. Rather, it devalues the whole country.

    I have seen this development before in the former Soviet block. You could get everything at reasonable prices, provided you paid in Western currencies. The communist masses on the other hand had to wait 6 months for some bananas. Result: Official exchange rate 1:1, inofficial 1:10. The latest textbook example is Venezuela.

    Interesting discussion on the talk show just now about how vote buying and ‘influencing’ is done in Barbados. Good to see mainstream media catching up with what we have been discussing in this forum for years. Keep reading Glyne Murray 😐

    Seem to recall the late David Thompson calling a meeting in 2008 at Sherbourne Conference Centre of the heads and senior management of the statutory boards. At that meeting he read the riot act to the the hierarchy of the government agencies – holding them accountable would have been a high priority.

    The cynical future:

    “Bridgetown, 25 December 2026. After the DLP surprisingly won a 3rd term in 2018, Chris Sinckler became new PM of Barbados and Freundel Stuart the president of the new republic. Mara Thompson is Chief Justice, Michael Carrington head of the Anglican Church of Barbados and Chairman of the National Ethical Committee.

    In order to feed even more people, the government expanded the public service to 80,000 servants with 40 ministers, 100 judges, 1,000 pastors and 1,000 additional tax commissioners. The VAT is now 26 %, income tax ranges from 30 to 60 % plus 20 % solidarity tax, there is also a 20 % special special import tax, a car tax of 500 % and a 10 % tax on every other tax. Fat tax was not introduced for obvious reasons. However, Barbadians have the chance to shop in Bridgetown without any duty – provided they pay in cash with USD, GBP, CHF or EUR. And the government expanded the social welfare system: food stamps for every Barbadian family during the year and corned beef at Christmas on PM Sincklers trucks. And the exchange rate is still 2:1, a national symbol of pride and industry.

    Experts from Venezuela and North Korea regularly come to Barbados to consult PM Sinckler. Since too many of the brightest Barbadians left the island around 2020, the government does not issue passports anymore. Travelling abroad is restricted to ministers and high bureaucrats, the internet is offline. Tourists are kept in their all-inclusive-hotels to avoid contact between Barbadians and foreigners.

    Nevertheless, PM Sinckler called Barbados the freest black country on earth during the big celebration in November 2026 which only costed 100 million USD.

    Before the last election the D’s knew they would have lose the elections and so they ran the economy into the ground@@@

    Again the BLP under Owen and Mia got this Fraud going ,and took the PONZI deep, The DLP took over and ran it even deeper, So this is where we are today, All of the problem of Barbados is in the land records, This is why we were not listed last year and may not be listed this year with S&P or Moodys,

    All the what is wrong in Barbados is in the LAND. No CLEAR TITLES TO BANK ON.
    Barbados economy is the ground, earth , soil, the records the hidden replaced, removed , the changed records that dont a line with History ,
    1966 Barbados was given their History from England and the Bitches changed the History and hide it from its own people to take land for self, Then to act like the government of Barbados have land, They have none, they paid no one , they just take for self and call it CROWN land , Land that was sign over by the AG who acts like bully and sign over land to the NHC and UDC ,,and call it crown land,,,, Out side bankers looking for records of who they paid for the land there is none, Land laundering and FIRST CARIBBEAN BANK,internal internal banking and laundering actors ,You Minister of Barbados did this, the police cover it up, the AG is the head on this , approved by the PM , killed by the BAR and eat and live well were the bottom feeders of the entire scam . Taking tourist money for thing that never got off the ground with no refunds, No law court help to recover for the DPP is also a crook, Dottin also a crook , EX CJ Simmons also a crook , now the island is STUCK .
    Madoff nor Allen Stanford have nothing on the DBLP government of Barbados, none can make it on the CCJ for they know they are crooks,

    The BL&P is closing down today for an “important department meeting”. The last time EMERA did so in Canada, it had a fleet of taxis waiting outside, to transport the retrenched workers off its premises immediately after the meeting. Sarah may need to have a couple of ambulances on standby today ,as well.

    “ac March 20, 2016 at 1:32 PM #: Sir much of my time is spent ADMINISTRATING and MANAGING a LARGE COMPANY and at intervals would comment within a working environment that can be a cause for me to be distracted…”

    Taking the above ACs’ contribution into consideration, “the Minister of Finance complaining that politicians are taking the blame for management” is correct.

    Who else should we blame when politicians give their yard-fowls, especially those with limited “intellectual capacity” such as the ACs, jobs in the civil service?

    Shiite, the mere thought of the ACs as managers harrows me with tremendous amounts of fear and wonder.
