Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite Does a Pontius Pilate

Attorney General, Adriel Brathwaite

Attorney General, Adriel Brathwaite

Emblazoned on the front page of today’s Nation newspaper is the fizzeog of Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite under the headline Don’t blame me!

In a another part of the media Minister Ronald Jones the entrenched Minister of Education was heard to say  that the ministry of education cannot be blamed for the ills of society currently playing out.

These two senior ministers need to be reminded about the various messages to be found in the DLP Manifestos of 2008 and 2013. They also need to be further reminded of the DLP’s mantra of a building a society and not just an economy.  The focus of this submission is Attorney General Brathwaite.

The lack of respect members of the political class of Barbados continue to direct at the citizenry is mindboggling. At a time of national crisis if we assess the level of violent crime in our country compared to days of yore what we need is for our political leaders to stand up. The statements issued by the Ministers of Education and Attorney General as reported in the media do nothing to signal hope that the Cabinet of Barbados has a plan to lead civil society at a time of crisis.

As penance for relinquishing their leadership roles BU urge both of them to read Sections [5] Families First [6] Empowering Our young People [23] and Law and Order of the 2008 DLP Manifesto. Under [23] there is mention of the recommendations made by the National Commission on Law and Order. A simple question to AG Brathwaite, please tell the public which of the recommendations have been implemented under his stewardship. The government was complimentary of the Commission’s report and therefore it follows a DLP government well into its second term should have implemented a few of the recommendations. This is one example how the Attorney General can demonstrate leadership to Barbadians instead of his statement of nothingness as pressed on the front page of today’s Nation newspaper.

Wait a minute!

In the 2013 DLP Manifesto here is what is recorded on page 54:

Against this background it would be unsatisfactory to contemplate leaving the development of our justice system to Parliament and the Courts. It is the view of Democratic Labour Party that a Law Reform Commission, suitably structured and provided with adequate resources could perform an important function by ensuring that the legal system provides a framework that enables our society to manage contemporary challenges effectively.

The Law Reform Commission headed by a senior Attorney-at-Law, will comprise of a group of persons drawn from a wide range of professions. It’s function will be advisory. The Commission will be empowered to consider on its own initiative, or at the invitation of the Attorney General, areas of law that appear to be in need of reform. The Commission will then publish a report concerning any area of law that it considers to be in need of reform, along with its recommendations for reform.

Isn’t is obvious why a greater number of Barbadians are disengaging from the ‘system’?

The BU household has written voluminously about the need for ordinary Barbadians to understand that we have to participate in our system of government for it to work effectively for us. The time has come to wrestle back our civic responsibility from the political class for the sake of our children and a better Barbados.

    These ministers are cowards and have no shame when collecting a taxpayer funded salary while simultaneously absolving themselves from any blame OR responsibility fir the ills in society….they will come in 2018 with the same old tired manifesto filled with lies, the same stealth and vote buying.,,,.none of them are fit fir public office, they are misrepresenting the people.

    Good government ministers would be forceful in charting the way forward with a plan to FIRST…end the corruption between themselves and the business people…the minorities….end the decades old destructiveness of that corrupt arrangement.

    Good government ministers would call in and collaborate with international drug and gun enforcement agencies to stem the imports of illegal guns and drugs to the island…they would give the names of those they KNOW import these guns and drugs by the container loads.

    Good government ministers do not deflect blame and responsibility from the ills in society, they would give the names of their bribers, money launderers and human traffickers to international agencies to stop the white collar criminal activity on the island.

    You do not have good government ministers in Barbados…..you have enablers residing in your parliament. …. of all the crime, social problems and degradation plaguing the island.

    To reiterate:

    The dummy Adriel Nitwit, attorney general, Ronald Jones, minister of education, government ministers and others need educating to the fact that mothers do not get children by themselves, men are also responsible for the raising of THEIR sons and daughters….contrary to what all these jackasses believe, females are not just there to breed and populate the island, then left with the responsibility to singlehandedly support, raise, guide and educate children ALL ON THEIR OWN.

    Everytime one of the senators, government ministers, priests or reverends open their backward, ignorant mouths on this subject, it shows their blatant stupidity.

    Stop with the overt sexism and deal with the reality….yall rub shoulders with the criminals who import the guns, drugs, launder the money and traffick in humans at ya events and cocktail parties, ya smile in their faces and admire their wealth knowing full well that they are responsible for much of the crime wave on the island, without their background funding, there would not be so much crime.

    So instead of blaming single mothers….call the authorities and give them the names of your bribers, friends and business partners who fund the drug and gun running imports.

    Now you can see what is truly meant by the phrase: Barbados is more than an economy; it’s a society {that has become rotten to the core because of corrupt and incompetent leadership}.

    So what did the AG say that was wrong or a lie the AG told a Truth and if many do not like what was said “too bad’ some of these youths come from dysfunctional homes and for some of these youth the parents are not much older than the child being a statistic of teen age pregnancy unprepared and poor and incapable to raising the children in standards that are acceptable for the child care to having a proper up bringing . When poverty and bad parenting collides the end result is extreme turmoil in and out of the home which filters into civilized society and marches with aggressiveness and uncaring discipline against the normal standards and positive principles which eats away at the moral codes of a society. hence society reaps the negative consequences of an outward resentment from these lost and wayward children.
    Yes parents need to be told of their responsibilities or lack thereof and its far reaching dire consequences that breeds violence and inflicts harm and danger in its path.
    Outside of the AG taking proper steps to protect society from this criminal activity those in society who have failed their children and gave up by letting the child rule domain over them should take full responsibility as contributors to the anti social environment that has taken a foothold in this country
    Take a look at those four boys ! who were captured on Tv and booked in jail today. What was their motive and why would they choose a life of crime at such a young age am i to believe that the AG is responsible for their choice , which begs the question WHERE Are THE Parents and why did they not seek intervention before these children seek a life of crime and violence

    p.s. Why is only Bussa a national hero? Are there no other early human rights activists who paid with their blood – whereas the later politicians died in their villas and Mercedes? Do you know a single Barbadian politican today who would act like Bussa? Be hones. None. Surely, non of our present generation will ever become a national hero.

    How would Bussa act today? That is my question. In my opinion, Bussa would teach Barbadians that freedom comes along with responsbility. And that wealth demands discipline and commitment. He would rally around the world, to USA, Britain, Scandinavia, Switzerland, Germany and China, to get good investors on board – instead of begging for treasury bonds and CS loans. People who are commited to help developing countries without huge tax waiver – not Butch, Cowan and Del Maestro.

    Not everyone wants to be an accountant, you do not have the jobs to accomodate 50 thousand accountants in the next year, stop shoving these subjects down children’s throats….instead….create useful programs in the schools which will identify their strenths from an early age and nurture those strengths…..they will then focus on those strengths and grow while increasing their strengths….to achieve productivity. .

    As it stands the ministry has for years been focusing on children’s weaknesses….so that is what ya getting, weak teenagers, weak adults who focus on the negative, non productive members of the society created by an inadequate education system.

    Leadership Failure: “We have been presented with two options to choose from. Either the executive team at Wells Fargo is as corrupt as an executive team can be or they are the dumbest group of people ever to run any organization.

    5300 Wells Fargo employees were terminated last week for creating millions of fraudulent accounts to meet what has been described as nearly unbearable pressure and demands to add new customer accounts. Progress at some branches was reviewed as many as 4 times a day. The pressure was relentless.

    Nothing, not morales, not ethics, not even those little things called laws could slow down the relentless push to meet the Wells Fargo corporate initiative known as “Gr-eight Initiative.” Wells Fargo has a goal that every customer should have eight separate accounts with the bank.

    Apparently goals are more important than anything at Wells Fargo. In order to meet the goals of the initiative employees opened new accounts for current customers without the customer’s approval or knowledge. This required forging signatures, creating fake email accounts, and moving customer’s money between these accounts without their knowledge, sometimes causing a customer’s real account to go into the red.

    Here’s the most amazing part of all this to me; not one senior level manager or executive had a clue any of this was happening for the last 5 years. Of the 5300 employees terminated ALL were front line employees. Not a single manager had even a microcosm of responsibility for any of this.

    That couldn’t be harder to believe if Hillary Clinton said it.

    There is clearly a culture at Wells Fargo that says anything goes. The culture doesn’t even pretend to care about ethics. Apparently the culture not only condones the breaking of laws, it encourages it.

    No matter what else may or may not be true about the goings on at Wells Fargo this much is certain: an organization’s culture comes from the top.

    What happened over the last five years at Wells Fargo is bad, what’s happening today is even worse. If nothing changes with the management at that bank then nothing changes at that bank.

    Is there even one responsible person in a position of authority at that organization? Is there even one person in a leadership position at Wells Fargo with enough courage to say “it’s on me”?

    Wells Fargo paid a fine “for the actions of their employees.” What about the actions, or at the very least, the inaction of their leaders? There has been an epic failure of leadership at that bank. 5300 employees didn’t undertake that level of deceit all on their own, it’s time for the people who drove that behavior to step up.

    Our lesson here is twofold: when integrity goes out the window everything else is welcome in and absent integrity from those in top leadership positions there is no motivation for anyone else to lead either.”

Then one should include past AG ‘s who did not plan by having proper goals and policies in mind for attacking the root causes towards Preventive measures for the past and future generations. Indeed for political operatives to be attacking and setting standards and measurments for the current AG smacks of political hogwash and a disconnect with the realities of the criminal element that is flourishing worldwide because of a demand for illegal drugs combined with the lure of a fast and easy dollar world wide.
    If every country applies the blp operatives standards of political attacks and goal post measurements then AG whose sucess are few and far in between world wide would have to resign with immediacy .Setting a benchmark as a precedent for the sole means of political attacks is foolhardly and serves no purpose to finding solutions to a hardened and criminal drug element

    Could not careless where the blaming process starts from the past. However if the blp operatives choose to take such a route just remember that the blp govt would be at a great disadvantage for much of the blame with regards to their fourteen year reign of govt which would have been a mighty long time for the blp not implementing policies which would at least in effect slow down the process of the drug culture with a focus on alternative methods of education for these wayard youth .Also if one now finds it necessary to place blame one should take a look at the ages of those involved with a measurement to a timeline and a period when they would have had acess to the education system.
    Point being that these youth did not enter the education system five or six years ago but at a period and time when they were no sytem of governance which could have and should have been given a chance for an alternative before they turned to a life of crime.
    So now for the blp operatives to be finger pointing and doing political analysis it bodes well that they should do the same for themselves

    The generation killing each other now are the children or grandchildren of the fatherless unemployables who never had a job in their lives other than hustling tourists and selling weed.

    This problem didn’t start last month or last year or last election, it started at least two generations ago.

    I find it interesting that AB should fire insults at mothers who can’t control their children. Why no mention of the absent fathers? It’s not girls disobeying their mothers and committing these crimes, it’s male offspring.

    There used to be a social stigma attached to being pregnant and unmarried, now it is the norm in some strata of society.

    Indeed.

    Education is a discipline, even if the subject is politics, basket-weaving or some equally-useless fantasy pursuit. Any graduate who dresses properly, speaks properly, is punctual and enthusiastic is already ahead of 50% of our workforce in any professional pursuit.

    As I’ve typed before, we have a useless BDS Defence Force; they couldn’t protect us from the Trini invasion and have no other use other than as live-bodies in a national emergency (assuming they don’t all desert to solve their own problems at home).

    Now am i supposed to belive that in lite of the fact and society help in catching the criminals that there should be an exclusion to anyone who sends congratulatory messages to the RBPF.is it not a part of partiotism to form an allegiance of good will with the hope of bringing others along
    Am i now to belive that as a society we have now reached the lowest of the low so much so that we attack those who have a vested interest in the uplifting of our country image
    Am i now to belive that when a good deed is done the better alternative is to close our eyes and make no mention of the goodness
    Why are we so quick to bitch and belly ache and never quick to gave back any thing in return as much as a simple Thank You

    The police did not do a good job. These 4 youths did not kill the alleged drug dealer on their own. Who ordered the hit? Who is the police protecting?

    Of course the police need to do more to find the person or persons who believe themselves so above the law, they could hire others to commit murder. For years I been hearing about the crooked business people boasting who they can have killed or arrested and all types of criminal boasts, cause there is no one fit or honest enough on the island to arrest them for their threats.

    The police need to find the people paying for assassinations, arrest them publicly.

    Wunna need to understand AC….

    Unlike Alvin, who is actually an idiot…and possibly even believes that he is making sense, the AC consortium are in a different place. They KNOW that they are talking shiite, but it pays the bills…
    …much like any other ‘ho’ …who knows that what they are doing is wrong; …that it will destroy them in the long term; ..and who may even find it distasteful …..

    ….but they gotta eat … and they are not the brightest bulbs in the unemployment line…
    …so they gotta spread….

    To Mia Amor Mottley.

    It is said the one cannot get lower than the belly of a snake or, in the case, lower than the underside of the feet of a Christmas worm.

    Truly anything that you propose to do during your tenure as Prime Minister cannot be worse than this horde of whores you can only rise

    But here is a thing Mottley.

    You see the precedence of appointing incompetent neophytes to positions of trust so that one consolidates one’s support? that is pure waste foopism and will put you back at the same position or worse than those scvunts from whom you will take this government conclusively.

    Those pooch suckers are there on either side of the divide of your tribes but, unlike the Great Depression of 2008, you do not have the luxury of kindness that has attended these fvckers for these 8 years regarding the staving off of devaluation

    When you commence your tenure, you have to commence with people who know how to run a ministry and citizens who will make this country work from day one of your rule, therefore, you see all those scvunts like Henderson Bovell and George C Brath and Sandra and Lynette etc, while they all “mean you well” that IS NOT THE CURRENCY OF COMPETENCIES THAT THE COUNTRY WILL NEED TO REBUILD.

    That has been the trap that successive governments have been seduced by, suck poochism.

    Someone runs around at election time and gets you seats and you give them a ministry or agency and all you end up doing is giving the errand boy, the Henderson Bovells who delivered messages for the Dead King Thompson, the type of weak character who in a flash, abandons Thompson to comes to your camp, you end up giving that same messenger mentality, a ministry.

    And the thing is Mottley that, even if he or any of that similar ilk live to be a thousand, they WILL ALWAYS BE MESSENGERS.

    You need to get wise real quick and realize the putting well intentioned scvunts at the helm only encourages a form of “lesbianic governance” a new term which means “putting cvunts to rub up on a population of 250 thousand cvunts”

    And while I am no Sir Arthur Lewis de ole man can tell you that that is the recipe for failed states a la Freundel Stewart and Crew.

    You need to coopt competent nationalists men and women who love country and who are competent!

    That is totally at variance to the norm of men and women who love Mia (or Fumbles or Owen or Bree) and are mediocre because you nor Alex do not know the words magical to transmute Scunts into magis irrespective of how many Masonic rites he initiates at Salters opposite the late Theo Adams’ home.

    And one final observation Mottley.

    Defer to “no’s” which are comprehensively presented when you propose a yes and vice versa.

    Utilize the Government Information service in a new and aggressive and innovative way to educate the masses and to establish a new form of democratic participation heretofore unknown.

    When your newly constituted Ministry of Education seeks to for example float a discussion on revoking coeducation, let it be by use of that archaic CBC shyte station now augmented by interactive Sykye sessions and validated online votes from the wider citizenry

    You as the new Turk on the block have to change the entrenched lethargy and bring a citizen participation across the full spectrum of governance of the people by the people, one which truly leverages any governmental indicative programming and let’s US$236 million be realized meaningfully.

    Abandon that other model and embrace a model of true service to fellow Bajans lest we fall and rise no more

    PS for the several idiot readers, the example of Education could easily be replaced by Agriculture or Culture or WTF you like. The principle is the same for any one of them and the underlying principle is inclusion of al and measurable outcomes vis a vis public masturbation and customary ego stroking that has brought our nation here

    And Mottley do remember that, it does not matter what these effers say they will do, they are through the edoes.

    Unless you mess up.
