Time for DISMISSALS and RESIGNATIONS over the HYATT Issue

Submitted by DAVID  COMISSIONG, Citizen of Barbados

As the Nation Newspaper rightly stated in today’s Sunday Sun front page article entitled “Hyatt go-ahead up to PM“, for the past 30 years the Law in Barbados has stipulated that all applications for planning permission to construct buildings on the “beach front” are referred to the Minister responsible for Town and Country Planning (the Prime Minister) for his consideration and decision. Indeed, the Law specifically states that such applications shall NOT be dealt with by the Chief Town Planner. (See section 18 of the Town and Country Planning Act and the Town and Country Planning Directions  that were made in 1986 under the said section 18 (statutory instrument 1986/103).

Surely, this is a legal stipulation that every Minister of Government must be aware of– particularly Ministers  who hold the directly relevant portfolios of Tourism, Finance, and Industry!

And just as surely, this has to be a legal stipulation that every investor who proposes to embark on a multi-million dollar hotel project on the “beach front” of Barbados must be aware of!

And so, we have to conclude that Mr Mark Maloney, Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy, and Minister of Industry Donville Inniss were ALWAYS fully aware that the ONLY entity who could grant planning permission to construct a 15 storey Hyatt Hotel at Carlisle Bay was and is the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mr Freundel Stuart !

Now, if the Nation Newspaper is correct when it reports that the Town and Country Planning Office recently submitted a 29 page document to the Prime Minister for his vetting, and that the said document contains concerns about and objections to the proposed Hyatt Hotel from a number of organizations  (inclusive of the Coastal Zone Management Unit, the Barbados National Trust, the Barbados Museum, and the Barbados Building Standards Authority), as well as 56 detailed conditions that the Chief Town Planner would wish to have applied to the said proposed project,

IT  MEANS  THAT  NO  PERMISSION  HAS  EVER  BEEN  GRANTED  FOR  THE  COMMENCEMENT  OF  THIS  HYATT  HOTEL  PROJECT!

And if this is the case— as it undoubtedly is — how was it possible for Minster Chris Sinckler and Minister Richard Sealy to join with Mr Mark Maloney at a so-called “signing ceremony” on the 26th of July 2016, and to support Mr Maloney as he brazenly informed the people of Barbados that he would be commencing construction of the said 15 storey Hyatt Hotel within a two month period of time!

Furthermore, how was it possible for Minister Donville Inniss to get up in the House of Assembly on the 18th of August 2016—  a full three weeks subsequent to the “signing ceremony” and after serious reservations had been raised in the public domain — and publicly assure the nation that all of the necessary studies and assessments had been carried out and that the application had been approved with conditions attached !

Haven’t Ministers Sinckler, Sealy and Inniss  been thoroughly delinquent in carrying out their duties as Ministers of Government? Haven’t they contributed to and participated in an exercise in which the country has been shamelessly and callously misled ? Haven’t they demonstrated that they are more loyal and beholden to Mr Mark Maloney than they are to their Prime Minister, their constituents, or indeed to the people of Barbados?

Henceforth, can the people of Barbados be expected to believe or trust anything that these Ministers say or do?  Can the people of Barbados be expected to repose any further confidence in these Ministers?

And haven’t we seen precisely  this type of behaviour over and over again from this current Governmental Administration ? Indeed, didn’t we see it with the Cahill fiasco?

Isn’t it time for some heads to roll ? Isn’t it time for some resignations or dismissals?

    People are starting to notice that the last 10-15 years of both governments talking about growth and progress while colluding with local and foreign crooks…the island has steadily degraded, the infrastructure in ruins…but guess who has ALL..the nice new shiny buildings, the same minority crooks who utilize taxpayer contracts given to them by both givernments over the years, to secure themselves, while everywhere else lies in ruins…and the jackholes in parliament, cannot see any of that, too busy counting their bribe money.

    “According to the town planner, there should be no permission for anything more than a 10 storey Hyatt, sane people know that the location at Browne’s Beach is all wrong..”

    Would Mrs. R liquidation imported rubbish centre be acquired to facilitate the Hyatt High Society hotel?

    So what is going to happen to that land that acts as the car park to the back of the old Manning & Wilkinson store? Imagine prime real estate used to ‘house’ imported steel donkeys!
    Why not put the hotel there?

    Why not turn the spot currently identified for the 15 storey tower in the land of Lilliput into a windows-to-the-sea vista for relaxation entertainment?

    It seems as if the current administration has some kind of curse or hex on it.
    Almost every project or act is surrounded with confusion, controversy or scam which prohibits its implementation or satisfactory completion.

    Why is this the case? Is it because the ghost of David Thompson, having been ‘read up’ from his CLICO ‘leaden’ coffin by the ‘godly’ doctor Durant still stalks the corridors of power in Bay Street? Or is it because the Reverend Bonke effect still lingers in the ghastly air of evil in George Street?

    EWB must be pissing himself with disdain at this dastardly act of shame and humiliation inflicted upon the party than once revered his name and his contribution to national development and pride.

    Even the one bright spark of hope and salvation in the passing of the Integrity Legislation in 2012 on the eve of the general elections seems to be a stillborn child.

    Mark Williams would no doubt recall the New York ‘hotel’ located a few feet down the road where MG Tucker had his Honda showroom.I am sure there was another ‘hotel’ on the other side of Bay St where chicken barn is located,so hotels on Bay St fitted in with the architecture of the area,with the tallest building being upstairs Manning Pierhead which is still there.The redeveloped Pierhed Project as touted by BS&T in the early 90’s made provision for a hotel and condos block in the area of the Pierhead and the old Baggage Warehouse. Trinidad constructed a fantastic marina with complimentary shops and restaurants in the Chaguaramas basin.Most yachts found there between June and November are from the US,out of the paths of hurricanes,I am told.

    That is exactly where this Hyatt hotel ought to be located. A much better location and more in keeping with the architectural and general ambience of the Bridgetown area with much more room for supporting facilities.

    One can only conclude that this Hyatt hotel as is presently proposed is just one big scam to rip off taxpayers by way of legal, consultancy and finders’ fees just like the other inchoate or unborn projects promised by this lying administration.

Just look at the last 8 years , nothing is working for the people, as it should, the only thing they gt from government, does not benefit them, just more taxes.

    Someone told me that land by the old harbor police is government land, if so, how did Maloney get it, same person told me that the lad earmarked for Chefette on highway 2 is also crown land.

    How much land has the government earmarked for the squatters, for the poor and homeless whose votes they need to be reelected, land that is just sitting there idle and growing bush.

    We have no doubt that we can and will grow our economy further and faster.We know we can bring unemployment down to even lower levels once we unleash the over $1 billion of foreign direct investment we have before us with projects such as the Sandals Casuarina expansion which has started, the Sam Lords Redevelopment Project which has also started, the Hyatt Centric and even the much maligned Four Seasons Project which, God willing, can get started shortly.

    I think they planned to cater to the yachting fraternity, their followers and locals who like the idea of living near the sea and the city.Ports St Charles and Ferdinand have since arisen from the ashes of the abandoned BS&T project,which still has lots of merit because it captured Bay St on both sides from the Pierhead and including Lr Fairchild and Probyn to the Esplanade.

    No doubt Hyatt started with good intentions, but got caught up with corrupt and lying politicians who is now causing their good name to be dragged in the mud. Now in order to clear their good name, it is imperative that they speak out against the culprits and go through the correct procedures to obtain their goal. Maybe even look at our now defunct Paradise Hotel (Four Seasons Hotel) with all that pristine beach. Lets see how good Mark Maloney/Bjerkham really is to bring Paradise back to life.

If the government does not see it fit to rebuild Fairchild Street Market, a few hundred yards away, for the rank and file Barbadians, and having persons in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bridgetown operating from a rat infested shanty town, do you think that they care about presenting the citizens of Barbados with a Window to the Sea?

    Bajans need to keep out the supermarkets as much as possible, buy your food from roadside vendors, keep the money circulating in the communities….punish the crooks, keep out of the restaurant…..cook your own food…shut down the greedy pigs…who are now competing to see how many fast food restaurants they can open across the island……to kill the population with NCDs

    Government cannot offer any solutions, they need to tell the public why they reentered into contracts paying Bizzy millions a months in taxpayer’s money when he does nothing to earn it, re garbage, re Ionics…but he is certainly building more garbage creating burger kings to keep the NCDs in full flight on the island.

    “TIME FOR DISMISSALS AND RESIGNATIONS OVER THE HYATT ISSUE”

    Interesting topic………. more like trying to “spin a top in mud.”

    Michael Carrington DID NOT RESIGN as Speaker of the House as a result of with-holding his former client’s property for a number of years, and had to be instructed by the court to return the said property after he was subsequently sued by the client.

    Denis Lowe DID NOT RESIGN after the CAHILL scam. After telling Barbadians LIES that he did not sign off on the CAHILL scam, but evidence proved he actually signed, Freundel Stuart still remains PM of Barbados.

    What about the Marilyn Rice-Bowen fiasco? Recall Rice-Bowen was fired as chairperson of the NHC when she questioned then Minister of Housing Michael Lashley authorizing CLICO to build houses without a contract. Lashley is now doing more shiite now as Minister of Transport. Against the background of evidence which suggests his tenure is shrouded by conflict of interest issues, he continues to do more shiite.

    Fruendel Stuart did not reprimand Lashley when he attempted to employ his relative “through the back door” at the Transport Board, which resulted in industrial action being taken by TB employees.

    After repeated denial in the press and on his face-book page, Denis Kellman demonstrated a blatant display of nepotism when he finally admitted he authorized the employment of his nephew’s wife at NHC.

    Rather than dismissal, Freundel Stuart ENDORSED Carrington’s actions by telling him to “get a lawyer,” and reserved his right to remain silent relative to Lashley and Kellman. Moreover, Stuart did not resign when it was discovered he lied about the CAHILL scam.

    WHAT WOULD MAKE any CONTRIBUTOR BELIEVE SINCKLER, SEALY or INNISS WOULD RESIGN as a RESULT of the HYATT PROJECT?

    An examination of the votes recorded during the last elections, across the entire island, shows that (a) a mere upper 40 % of the electorate voted in 2013 and (b) barring 2-3 constituencies very few were won with excesses of 750 – 1,000 votes.

    They barely won in 2013.

    These glaring incompetencies WILL, irrespective of the permanent appointments, the de bushing jobs, the free iPads and the customary vote buying, be sufficient to seal their collective fate which will be NO ONE EFFING SEAT!!!

    What Mugabe and her cohort need to plan for now is the vote rigging that is being planned at present.

    The DLP knows that it is going to be voted out and what we are seeing with this public wrangling, is Sinkliar and Pornville seeking to become the leader of the Opposition FOR THE 25 YEARS THAT THEY WILL BE IN OPPOSITION

    What Mottley has to start examining is the ballot printing, vote recording, ballot transportation, ballot certification/validation processes for it is here, after the 65% turnout has voted these scvunts out to effect this non starter topic of “Dismissals and Resignations”, that we are going to see the real lengths of thievery that the Demonic Lying Party is Prepared to sink to.

    So, in addition to the arbitrary redistribution plans for the constituency boundaries and the commensurate changes in the voter registers, because that type of gerrymandering will have a negligible effect on the “not one effing seat” results, what they will resort to is the classic switch and grab practice of false ballots replacing the real ones.

    Where is the evidence to suggest “leader of the BLP would be drawn to Comissiong associations and political affiliations?”

    And remember, Commisiong, whose views have not CHANGED significantly over the years, was a DIEHARD MEMBER of the DLP until he VOLUNTARILY RESIGNED from the party.

    Also, they are not at different ends right now. Donville is under the bus where Sinckler pushed him.

    If we were operating under the Westminster System, Donville would be required to resign. Remember John Profumo who lied to the House of Commons about a little piece he was having on the side.

    The Hyatt is the latest one, if they have all these grand ideas for a Hyatt brand……these crooks should have the Hyatt brand money…..goddamn thieves……Maloney and the whole lotta them are, just out to steal from the majority and pretend they superior.

    I heard Ronald Jones speaking/pleading with the teachers not to strike but to contact the PS and try to reach an understanding or at least take it to the law courts.Firstly,I couldn’t believe that Jones was capable of speaking in such measured and conciliatory tones.The man sounded churchillian even.But he still threw in that the ministry was following the law!If that is the case what is the point of meeting with the PS or taking it to court,the last thing any sane Bajan would do given the insults hurled at the administration of justice in the island by the CCJ and by almost every lawyer in Bridgetown including Vernon and Amused,is to go to court voluntarily.Shepherd would lose his pick in ‘less than no time’ a la Sparrow.The teachers have one remedy and that is to awaken the Chairman of the Electors.

    The only thing that was missing was the bullets or were they?

    Let’s inject a dose of reality into these comments, we all know that no one will be forced to walk the plank and no one will jump ship (keeping a nautical theme) this is Buhbadus after all and when the sound and fury on BU has petered out it will be business as usual. BTW what is the Official Opposition’s position on this development? I haven’t heard anything but I may have missed it so would appreciate if I can be brought up to date. This is a one industry town and the Gov’t can’t afford to have Hyatt withdraw its Goodwill from the island when the Sarcophagus that is Four Seasons still remains a blight on the landscape. There are a few other places with beaches in the Caribbean that will welcome Hyatt with open arms if it lifts a quizzical eye in their direction and in the Caribbean we like to compete/steal from each other an aside (some friends use to come to the Island in Winter for the Jazz festival which has now decamped to one of the neighbouring islands).

    We bemoan the lack of transparency from the Gov’t but is it worth it to throw out the baby with the bathwater? A long time ago someone decided the tourism facilities should all be on the beach, there doesn’t seem to be any impetus to adopt a different approach and future generations will wonder about our lack of foresight in planning and developing the island.

    I dont think people are noticing how quickly Commissiong gets the urgent matters heard in the high court, the same does not apply to the average citizen because unlike Commissiong, they do not know how the screwed up court system works on the island, he is able to navigate it much better because of his knowledge, for the greater good.

    Why are some people willing to stay from afar and sell their people’s souls to keep a “one industry town” in place….generation after generation is being disenfranchised and exploited because of the practice, the governments, of which there has ever been only 2….REMAIN CORRUPT and INDULGENT of the minority business people who are ALSO CORRUPT and are interchangeable,…meaning, the Bizzys, Maloneys, Bjerkhams etc….will be replaced with their clones in corruption when they die……which reads, NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE…since the jackasses in parliament will also be replaced with their clones who will be equally as stupid since they will be following the same template and carrying the same useless, selfish and corrupt mentalities…, an unbroken cycle…since neither group wants to change what’s putting free money, taxpayer’s money in their pockets, at the expense of the people.

    50 Hyatt hotels will not change that or the fortunes of the island and people from the current negative to a positive…the current games being played by corrupt government ministers and the corrupt minority businessmen….will never benefit the majority.

    Unless that bond of corruption is broken between the 2 governments and the business sector…the intelligent investors who do not want their names attached to corruption and scandals when international agencies come investigating….will rightly haul ass to less scandalous islands to build their products….leaving Barbados to attract the Del Mastros like personalities filled with scandal.

    Is this barbados understanding of reality and good goverance .very little taxes and no foreign investment. Yet having high expectations for a system of goverance to provide all that is necessary for a country to perform and supply every high expectation.
    What are the realities here just asking. Most people living in large countries having plenty resources would attest that foreign investment plays a major role in the development. Yet here on this tiny island with no resources outside of our people some can stand forceful and defiant against a reality that unless we proceed on a path the larger and more resourceful countries have done to provide progress for its people we will be doomed to failure due to our arrogance and a misbelief that we can magically progress all by ourself

    A country progress goes beyond a systematic approach of prostitution by relies heavily on those factors which are many to give the country a viable and sustainable way towards progress.

    If only Leroy Parris and his highly paid legal advisors were as ‘lucky’ as Comissiong in ‘exploiting’
    the workings of the sanctum sanctorum of the legal brotherhood.
    And we all were of the impressionable mindset that ‘Justice’ was indeed blind as symbolised by Justitia, the Lady with the sword and balance.

    If only the poor policyholders should look into their shattered mirror of dreams pray to Prudentia to relieve them of their misery through a deadly venomous bite from the serpent of deceit and lies.

    BTW, the Father of Independence, EWB, once warned his fellow ‘ordinary’ countrymen about seeking justice in the then Coleridge Street. It seems you might just have been ‘too young’ to recall the import of his advice. Even your dear loving friend admonished his followers with the following caveat:
    “Jesus replied, And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.”

    I too have previously identified this massive conflict of interest.
    SOL would not be the sole importer, distributor, and massively controlling retailer of finished petroleum ground products (except for bottled gas where Rubis would retain its share of this price controlled product).

    One wonders what role the FTC would have to play in this practically monopolistic trading situation.
    But we all know the saying: He who pays the piper calls the tune.

    You need to get around some more Jeff… you spend too much time around your big-shots pals whose forte is patting each other on the backs and re-enacting the Stockholm syndrome.

    Obviously, referencing a man like Comissiong’s use of our legal system is equivalent to referencing the fact that Bushie – a normal everyday brass bowl bajan, is rich as shiite – despite situation and the efforts of a multitude….

    But Bushie has BBE contacts that make his situation EXTRAORDINARY….

    So if Gabriel comes on BU and says that Bajans are smelling hell, and not seeing any hope for the future… Can you SANELY say that Bushie is an example to the contrary….?
