    If the meeting of the Social Partnership is to be televised by and on CBC can we respectfully ask that broadcasting commences from inside the brand spanking new Mercedes Benz when PM Stuart (Lord Ruler) when he makes he way to the meeting that morning?

    I don’t see the broadcast commencing before 11am as the PM is not an ‘early riser’ is he?

    I like to ignore the hypocrisy of it all sometimes because it is a time waster…. especially those with short selective memories who like to turn demons into saints.

    But a crackhead womanizing woman beater and abuser best sums up Adams…I cant stand liars and hypocrites.

    I often assume the worse because that is the experience. Simple Simon referred to a post a 6.26am (in the morning) on July 26. I looked for it and could not find it.

    David,
    Well Well,
    Why you always calling my name?: “…Canadian Clare Cowan…..Alvin Cummins Cahill scam friend…”
    You know NOTHING about me, apart from the fact that I am high educated. I am a true and loyal Bajan, who was born poor and has worked hard to reach where I am; and been fortunate enough to have lived many years, and have experienced more than a lot of people. I read care fully and do not rush to judgement. I support the DLP and have done so since 1963. I am not ashamed of that, because I know what the DLP has done for the people of Barbados. Many people panic when things get difficult; and the BLP can only win when DLP supporters panic and depart from its ranks at election time, but David always used to say: “Don’t panic.” Enough people do not read and understand what they are reading.
    The budget that is the source of so much concern is an example.
    The team from the IMF was here for the usual Article 4 consultation in May; they left on May 29, a short time before the presentation to Parliament and the people of the Budget. In their report they made certain statements and recommendations. Many people; technocrats, including the new Government of the Central Bank (acting) and the leader of the Opposition, ever members of the Consulting team. If people read the recommendations carefully they would note that the steps undertaken by the government; obviously with the approval of the consulting team, would have been taken with their approval. That means that the leader of the Opposition would hAVE BEEN PARTY TO these steps. She did not walk out of the consultation, so she agreed with the steps. Why then is she party to that march?
    The government NEEDS to raise funds, there is no doubt. Steps to raise the amount necessary will take time, and consultation. It is disrespectful to command the head of government to adhere to a timeline set by adversarial elements. These decisions are the purview of the government.
    There is no doubt that adversarial elements; since 2008, are intent on bringing down the DLP, and that they will resort to any tactic to achieve this objective. The people who have the interest of the ENTIRE country foremost in their hearts will make sensible decisions. I hope people pay attention to the chronology of events from the PM. These were not enunciated by the unions.

    Alvin, what are you stating here?

    Are you saying that your “DLP supporters” were in continuous panic and departed from the party ranks from 1994 to 2007 when the people were “going wid Owen” & the BLP?

    Seems as if history will be repeating itself very, very soon. All the elements that caused that rupture and long despair in the DLP are about to coalesce once more; not this time to send the DLP in the political wilderness for 14 long years but to witness its demise and attend its burial under the direction of a stubborn old fool called Fumble.

    But there is hope in another Messiah; not in a dead king David this time around but in a king of porn called Donville.

    However, the Don of verbal diarrhea must stop with the long talk and move expeditiously to resuscitate and reform the dying deceitful lying party by picking up the long-handle knife to cut the political throat of the selfish powful-foolish fumbling fool before he is able to administer the last rites.

    So you are admitting those budgetary impositions were not “homegrown” by a politically estranged administration about to renew vows with a distanced and pissed off electorate but imposed by the banker of last resort as preconditions for the upcoming standby funding arrangement needed to shore up the foreign reserves in order to avoid debt default later in the year?

    To suggest the Opposition is party to the imposition of these draconian measures is to assert that the then BLP Opposition colluded with the Sandiford administration in imposing the 8% cut in public workers’ pay and the raft of measures determined and dictated by the IMF including the major ‘sell off at giveaway prices of the family silver under the label of privatization.

    Alvins logic is not from Cawmere, he must have aquired that in colder climes which apparently has addled his brains or its Alzheimers doing one of its short circuits.

    The sad joke about Alvin’s efforts is that it is known that OSA had a plan for the IMF over 3 years without these strictures when our PM said no…..that plan was discussed and known…..so where did this 9 month unworkable from all angles budget come from……even if the unions did not disrupt it…..it could not garner the amount profered…..but I understand it was a “perfunctory” decision made…..a bit like Alvin’s.posts.
