The Day After Bad Weather

Adriel Brathwaite, minister of Home Affairs

Adriel Brathwaite, minister of Home Affairs

From early reports the bad weather that affected Barbados from about midday yesterday did not result in loss of life. We pray that Tropical Storm Matthew projected to intensify to a Category 1 hurricane will not cause too much damage/harm on its path across the island chain.

One of the talking points coming out of yesterday’s event was the reported opening of a few businesses although the country was under shutdown. The more prominent business names mentioned are Carlton and Emerald City supermarkets, outlets of Chefette restaurant and surprise surprise Moontown owned by Minister of Housing Denis Kellman.

Although Minister of Home Affairs Adriel Brathwaite who has responsibility for Department of Emergency Management (DEM) implored businesses to comply with shutdown orders from the DEM, he was weak as far as supporting the call with what the law states. Commonsense supports the view that businesses should align decisions with the DEM in the interest of public safety.   Barbados has a social partnership that is held up as a beacon of private public sector cooperation. Why on a 166 square mile island key players are unable to agree how to act in a national emergency?

Attorney-at-law Douglas Trotman posted the following to his Facebook page.

For your information and guidance.

Essential Services in the Private Sector

Within the context of the private sector those companies/entities which provide essential emergency services to the general public in times of emergencies include:Utility companies, Supermarkets, mini-marts, shops, Pharmacies, General stores, including hardware stores and lumberyards Companies that provide public transportation Telecommunication providers

Private Sector Shutdown Procedures

On the issue of the National Shutdown Instruction, private sector entities/companies shall close their operation taking into account the following:(i) the provision of their disaster plans(ii) the security and operational procedures of the entity/company(iii) the welfare of the employees and the need for them to take their domestic precautions, especially those living in remote and flood prone areas, and(iv) the operators of public transportation will need to withdraw and secure their vehicles well before the impact. Consequently, staff not essential to the entity/company’s disaster plans should be released early, unless private arrangements can be made for transporting staff home safely.

The leadership of Barbados owes it to the citizens to clarify the matter, TODAY. During a national shutdown (national emergency) maintaining order and ensuring safety of citizens must be the priority.  What appears to be maverick decisions taken by a few business owners must be hastily explained to the pubic. There is a leadership role to be played by trade unions.

It seems we have entered a dark place in Barbados as far as leadership on the national stage is concerned.

Will the real leaders please put your hands up!

    @ Hants

    I forgot the name of the Gaul who engaged with the Romans and beat them ridiculously through skirmishes and continuous guerrilla warfare and, like Toussaint L’Ouverture chose the weapons of the enemy, in the former case open battlefield and in the latter it think it was sabres instead of cutlasses.

    And history tells us the rest.

    What i am saying it that were we to understand the mechanics of war then we would be as successful at them as we have shown ourselves to be with the limited scope skirmishes.

    I spoke therefore of “skirmish” as a successful yet not refined mechanism and juxtaposed its success against the longer term of engagement that wars require.

    Intelligence Specialists will tell you that constant unpredictable IEDs which know no target, other than this is a target are psychologically the very worst of incidents to “plan” for and, MORE IMPORTANTLY, to heal from.

    So I was not comparing the percentages but rather the strategic outcomes over time

    It is like my component of the Stoopid Poster campaign, I cannot be turned off, nor can they outwait me, for I am relentless in what i do, I do not stop and will not stop until their is one outcome and that is the eradication of the Democratic Labour party.

    When the BLP realises that, AND TOSS IN THEIR RESOURCES THEN THE DLP WILL TRULY START TO QUAKE, but de ole man dealing with lesser beings, that is not said with any derogatory content or intent, it is just a statement of fact.

    What people do not understand they fear and when you fear something you avoid it or him

    Which brings me to my friend Well Well and Consequences.

    It is not that Bizzy or COW or Baloney or any of the rest of bajan whites proactively have a hold over black people as much as in the absence of will and resoluteness, bajan whites “try a ting”

    Let me show you something that while it traversed all over the social media it WAS NOT “SEEN”

    When Rick Rick fell in the Luck Horseshoe Carpark, Rick Rick turned to his assailant(s) and faced him and lunged at him.

    There is a conditioning that his final actions in this world express and that this ole man wants you to understand.

    The emboldening of the black psyche or any nations psyche is not something that auto combusts!!

    We are a nation of wusses.

    Now do not confuse braggadocio or belligerence with “I will not fall alone here” or “be you 10, I will seek to take out one of you”.

    By wusses what i mean is that which was expressed in the actions of 3 of the 4 assailants where, even though they were armed, they DID NOT MOVE FORWARD AT THE SAME TIME, because they were wusses.

    And that, as seemingly raw as it is encapsulates the Bajan psyche.

    Gone are the firebrands like Sir Hilary the sellout and the soldiers who roared and gave passion to their message, passion sagely inflected with INTELLECT, for one without the other is as useless as Mjolnir without Thor.

    So this is not a proactive subjugation of the masses by these few whose names you mention but it is the results of an abdication and lack of edification and where there is a vacuum now these spirits like LEGION, that one in the BIBLE, occupy.

    THis is why I humbly posit that Mugabe brings more of the same, men and women without any backbone, who are similarly, if not moreso incapable of restoring any growth of the psyche.

    Eddie, Ralph and dem fellows what de ef dem going do nuh? Dale is an accoyte of the 9th degree, payne, Toppin, Cynthia!!!

    “On September 22, the deadly Hurricane Janet struck Barbados in 1955. Hurricane Janet started as a tropical wave located just off Barbados and retained this status until September 21, when within a 12 hour period, it strengthened first to a Category 1 and then into a Category 2 hurricane. When Janet hit the island, it was a Category 3 system packing winds of 120 mph!

    Janet went on to become the most powerful hurricane of the 1955 season, reaching Category 5 status with winds of 175 mph. The storm killed 38 people in Barbados alone, caused five (5) million dollars worth of damage, and left as many as 2000 Barbadians homeless.

    In fact, the only hurricane hunter plane to be lost in the Atlantic on a reconnaissance mission occurred during Hurricane Janet. On September 26, the pilot lost radio contact at 10:15 p.m., before flying into the then Category 4 storm. By 11:00 p.m. the US Navy classified the plane as overdue and the crew was officially reported missing. Neither the remains of the plane nor any signs of the crew have ever been found.

    The nature of all men, rather most me, in the face of collective suffering, is to at least pray that some relief comes from The Almighty to stave off the seeming threat.

    You have gloated in this hurricane and also projected its outcome as if you are conversant with GOD AND INCREDIBLY gone further in your pronouncements to determine the extent of the damage AND SUGGEST WHAT THE COUNTRY MUST DO.

    YOU ARE COLLECTIVELY A CUR SIR, A FEMALE DOG, WHO DELIGHTETH IN THE MISFORTUNE OF ANOTHER NATION OF OUR CARICOM BRETHREN.

    This is just part of the reason why, when our calamity comes, none of our Caribbean states will open their arms to us because our collective mentalities are seen to mirror you own.

    Not one of the beast that is Legion was able to tell your stupid self to stop that line of idiot reasoning?

    I pray that even now GOD turns this storm rather hurricane away from their shores with the power that He alone possesses and that your hopes come to nothing.

    Vercingetorix.

    I had to look it up

    “While militarily just as strong as the Romans, the internal division between the Gallic tribes guaranteed an easy victory for Caesar, and Vercingetorix’s attempt to unite the Gauls against Roman invasion came too late.”

    Another remark elsewhere states

    “They had had considerable success attacking the supply lines of the Romans and cutting off their food supplies. More Gallic nations joined in the rebellion, including several that Romans had considered trusty allies. The United Gauls formally elected Vercingetorix king, and continued to assert their independence from Rome, often by killing Roman citizens and traders in Gallic towns. Although not strong enough to meet the Romans in the open field, they continued their harassing tactics, and fortified the town of Gergovia. Again, the Romans besieged town, but this time they failed to make headway. Caesar was forced to retreat”.

    Notwithstanding in a later conflict part of the Gaul forces sought to attack the Romans from the rear and Caesar’s superior army who’s 80,000 had notably utterly destroyed a force of some 300,000 elsewhere in the many campaigns he waged from 59-53? BC, destroyed them all.

    We are are indeed a strange nation David and this shows up even in simple things like feeding the Homeless and less fortunate than ourselves

    “Hinds responds to homeless being left in cold during storm” article by Desmond Brown on October 1, 2016.

    “Acting Director of the Department of Emergency Management (DEM) Kerry Hinds has admitted authorities fell short in providing for homeless people during the passage of Tropical Storm Matthew.”

    “President of the Barbados Vagrants and Homeless Society (BVHS) Kemar Saffrey had expressed outrage that the homeless were forced to brave the elements and no one in authority seemed to care.”

    “Hinds said there was consideration for vulnerable persons during times of disaster but admitted more needs to be done.”

    “There are also other groups that we also have to consider as we do our contingency and preparedness plans,” she said during a press conference at her office this morning.”

    Honourable Blogmaster let me explain to you what the thought process was, is and will be for past, present and future Disaster Emergency Management officials AT ALL TIMES.

    HOMELESS PEOPLE ARE NOT CONSIDERED TO BE QUALIFIED RECIPIENTS OF SHELTER DURING DISASTER PREPAREDNESS EXERCISES!!!

    These people are categorized as permanent vagrants are seen as potential freeloaders who, post the disaster, MAY NOT WANT TO LEAVE THE PREMISES AND MAY BATHE THERE OR WORSE, USE THE TOILETS TO RELIEVE THEMSELVES THERE!!!

    Let me tell you something about these agencies and my so called charitable brethren and sisteren David.

    We are actors, eye servants who think that GOD whom we pretend to serve David is a man.

    So I will have that meals on wheels type church activity and feel the 2 dozen or so homeless once a week but, even thought Ms. Hinds’ job is mandated to render assistance to all people, she like you and I, will selectively decide to whom she will proffer Good Samaritan service.

    BEFORE IT HAPPENED!! AS IF YOU HAVE A HEAVENLY TELEPHONE THAT DEFINITIVELY SAYS THAT SUCH WILL BEFALL JAMAICA.

    Let me give your idiot self a lesson for possible absorption by your Imperial Hignorance

    Every time that an airplane takes off from this earth OR lands it is at risk of crashing.

    Did you know that? in fact they say that the odds are greatest at these two points moreso than when the craft is in flight.

    Imagine that you are at the airport seeing other members of your hignorant family off at Grantley Adams and I bring my “Wise Self” to the airport and stated thusly

    “AC’s relative will be flying from Barbados to Barbados on this British Airways Airbus A319.”

    “Their flight has a one-in-4.8m chance of crashing.”

    “Shortly after they will disembark at Miami for a United Airways flight to JFK on a Virgin-operated A330.

    Their Chance of crashing? One in 5.4m.

    That means that they would apparently expect to fly on that route for 14,716 years before plummeting into the North East of the US!!

    Doufus, do you understand now??

    It is not something to be said yet you persist in repeating it as callously as you said it both times before.

    This is why I am committed to getting every single one of your FVCUKERS out of the house of Assembly so that you will know that you cannot pronounce what will happen and delight in it.

    “One of the most effective ways to vote doesn’t involve elections or polls at all — withdrawing your money from the corporatist system which funds and backs corrupt politicians can be a decisive method to show your intolerance of their policies. Hit politicians where it hurts them most — their wallets — by growing your own organic food, participating in barter and trade, or by either refusing to vote in national elections or opting instead for a third party candidate.

    Be creative in refusing to validate the system that directly permits such corruption — and worse — to continue.

    When the law becomes so twisted it allows criminals to operate with impunity, that law is little more than hollow ordinance. If working within the system to change it from the inside isn’t fruitful — think Bernie Sanders — perhaps it’s time to work outside it.”

    Piece….one very effective way to stop the corruption within DBLP enclave, as you and the grandson are the poster geniuses, am sure you can work it into a “stoopid poster”.

    “On the issue of the National Shutdown Instruction, private sector entities/companies shall close their operation taking into account the following:(i) the provision of their disaster plans(ii) the security and operational procedures of the entity/company(iii) the welfare of the employees and the need for them to take their domestic precautions, especially those living in remote and flood prone areas, and(iv) the operators of public transportation will need to withdraw and secure their vehicles well before the impact. Consequently, staff not essential to the entity/company’s disaster plans should be released early, unless private arrangements can be made for transporting staff home safely.”

    Although the above states that private sector entities /companies shall close their operation ; it is my view that ” taking into account the following” gives the employers some leeway in their decision making response to the call for a shutdown which does not appear to be mandatory.

    Should we close the place down now …or take the risk of waiting for some actual rain to fall?

    Bushie gave a proper response in his usual insightful style.What I am saying is that in disaster management when you mandate a shutdown of the country,it is not to be left to a supervisor,that is a call for the top brass of the cabinet or even the GG.I recall in 79 or 80 Rediffusion was repeating a hurricane threat and for an extended period of time,Rediffusion stopped broadcasting.Then we heard the voice of GG Deighton Ward and his last words were “May the Lord have mercy on your soul”….you mandating a shutdown of the country that should come from high up the totem pole.

    …and the Law FULLY allows and supports such a shutdown.
    It is called a national state of emergency.

    The difference is that it is not done willy nilly by a bunch of second rate civil servants who are always happy to have an extra day or two off…and still get their pay..

    When there is a serious threat to the country, OBVIOUSLY a shutdown is warranted. …but equally obvious is that it must be well thought out, properly supervised and policed, and there must be a LEGAL framework in place.

    What if these DEM people ‘mandate’ that a fellow stays at home – and then the ‘hom’ happens to collapse and he is seriously injured – when he could have been ‘safely’ at work…?
    Who he going sue ….?
    …the DEM…?

    @ Gabriel,

    I don’t like to get information from people who have to read what others had to tell them.

    The Prime Minister probably doesn’t even know how to track a hurricane on the internet.

    I stand corrected Bushie.

    A tropical wave is producing a large area of cloudiness and showers
    a few hundred miles east of the Windward Islands. Development of
    this system is not expected during the next few days while it moves
    westward at 15 mph, but some development could be possible when the
    wave reaches the southwestern Caribbean Sea early next week.
    Locally heavy rains and gusty winds are possible in the Windward and
    southern Leeward Islands during the next couple of days as the wave
    moves through the area.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
    * Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent
