    They need to be made a prime example of all the CL Financial and CLICO crooks, it’s up to the office of the DPP and other authorities to do their jobs, a serious message needs to be sent across the Caribbean.

    It seems there is politics in every major decision we have to make whether Barbados, Trinidad or abroad. This is the systemic issue. All indicators keep pointing to a failing judiciary.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    By ‘politics’ you clearly mean brass bowlery….. and you are of course right
    Whether you are speaking of Barbados, Trinidad, the USA, Finland or Iran.
    Also, this brass bowlery is not confined to governments …or to big business, but permeates ALL sectors of our society…

    BUT WHY????

    So when do we begin the serious debate about what constitutes this universal, fundamental ‘gene’ that drives this brass bowlery…..
    ….about what causes it
    ….and about how it can be addressed?

    It is now becoming OBVIOUS why Bushie’s whacker get tek way…
    Every damn blogger have a whacker like shiite…
    Afra wukking a D9 bulldozer down in Trickidad …and brass bowlery still at large…
    It seems that the weeds have become abundantly clear to us all now…

    It is time for BU to stop highlighting the SYMPTOMS and start focusing on the roots
    ..time to ease off the whackers and apply some roundup
    else we shall all surely die….

    @ David re “It seems there is politics in every major decision we have to make whether Barbados, Trinidad or abroad. This is the systemic issue. All indicators keep pointing to a failing judiciary.”

    Gotta agree with the other bloggers but blame can’t be on judges per se only, to be frank.

    I am sure you can recall the period several years ago when ‘prosecuting judges’ in Italy were cannon fodder. Any of that group who validated their honesty and law-abiding credentials by accepting the post of mafia prosecutor generally also prepared a will and gave general guidelines for their funeral services before starting the work. A few surely were killed despite secure precautions.

    The pervasive corruption seen here or across in T&T and other places is Palermo or Sicily in Italy. Just as the Mafiosa reached a level of systematic graft that touched from the beggar in the street to the chief politician so have modern day political and corporate operations.

    The killings of agitators who try to corral the illegality is not as brazen but the tone of ‘go along to get along’ is exactly the same, particularity with those who vote.

    This Colman Report must eventually see the light of day.Thompson,Parris et al will have their day in court to confirm or deny whether Barbados sovereign wealth was spirited away in bags of currency of the realm of the Eagle via a jet plane or a bank transaction with the help of a Trini bank manager cum minister.Blacks and whites including deaf mutes are shot for less in the US and these bigass crooks literally get away with murder.

    While the insurance executives continue to rob the people and country, the business people continue with their scams to rob the treasury and the people, the ministers and politicians continue to rob the people and destroy countries…none are going to prison where they belong….the people now have to be very mindful of what Caribbean leaders copy from the US.

    Bill Clinton’s racist state of Arkansas has started a very nasty practice that should never be copied.

    The issue or point being made by Afra is the length of time this matter will take to be processed by the Court for the citizenry to receive justice.

    And that includes judges who tend to be politicians and lawyers before being appointed to the bench, that includes DPPs who are are known to be political and corrupt. ..read Barbados’ DPP. …that includes the lawyers from both sides who collude with each other so that there is no end to the case and the outcome benefits them only, read..,.decades of litigation = hundreds of millions of dollars in legal fees.

    And my point is that when it sees the light of day,the public should be more au fait with the shenanigans of those concerned in Barbados and their Trini connections.

    @Gabriel, here is one interpretation of your remark “America,once seen as the land of “milk and honey”….never was,never will be,but it is the land of albino privelege and persecution of its black citizens…”

    The persecution…facilitated by the those persecuted: “Gov. Paul LePage is being accused again of making racially insensitive comments, this time by saying photos he’s collected of drug dealers arrested in the state show more than 90% of them are black or Hispanic.”

    The ‘milk & honey’ facilitated by honey-making Black bees: 90% of the US sprinters who made the various Olympic finals or who were on the basketball team were Black.

    As WW&C said there is a price to pay for the success but those who have what it takes surely can be very successful… legally.

    That Gov may be absolutely correct and we need to come to grips and accept that reality whether we are n Barbados and dealing with the criminals in the hood and in the Assembly who look like us or in US and getting pissed when others call out the criminals who also look like us.

    Barbados is a land of milk and honey for lots of immigrants too.

    This crap should not still be happening with the leaders shouting how independent the islands are, this is an insult to their ancestors and total disrespect to this 114 year old lady who has more character in her pinky finger than any of those parasites and thieves in buckingham palace.

    What’s the use of claiming to be independent nations when you allow disrespect to your citizens by the savage animals in the UK.

    “A 114-years-old great-great-grandmother from Carriacou is being honored as one of the oldest women in the world.

    For the first time in her long life Leonora Noel has received a birthday greeting from Queen Elizabeth – but it arrived late. The first card sent from Buckingham Palace went missing in the post. A replacement was dispatched via the office of the Governor General of Grenada and delivered to Carriacou by the Governor General.

    Masima, as she is known to friends, is recognized as Grenada’s oldest resident. She lives modestly in a simple wooden house above the village of L’Esterre, Carriacou. She spends most days sitting quietly where she can watch her chickens roam around the bushes outside and spot visitors who call to wish her well. Grandson Gibson George is on hand next door to help the lady who he says was so important to him as he was growing up.

    The super-centenarian enjoys a good appetite and takes occasional trips in a neighbor’s car to the local town. Apart from help around her home she looks after herself and says she is strong and in better health than the 83-year-old daughter who lives with her. She admits her hearing is not as good as it has been but she can happily sing in tune the song she learned as a little girl in school more than a century ago.

    This remarkable lady is bright, alert and surprisingly mobile. Recently she climbed up a flight of stone steps to meet her new great-great-grandchild, a baby girl named Sarah. Her trip is documented in the short video made by a visiting British journalist, I Am Masima:

    Masima is greatly admired by the Carriacou community which speaks of her many kindnesses to local families over generations.

    Masima is obviously thought to have been born before almost anyone still alive today in the British Commonwealth – only one Jamaican woman is older. There are only four more people in the world verified as older – one woman in Italy, another in Spain, and two in Japan.

    Masima was born in 1902 in Venezuela. When she was seven years old her mother died there in childbirth. The young girl was brought to Carriacou by her father Sherman, who originated on the island, and she was raised by grand-parents and aunts.

    Grenada was a British colony until independence in 1974. Grenada remains part of the British Commonwealth and Masima is a subject of the Queen’s Realm. Many local people left the islands to seek work in the United Kingdom and scores became nurses and factory workers there.”
