Says Barbados Free Press “Allegedly Managed And Operated By Close Friends Of The DLP” – Fails To State That BFP Called Thompson and DLP As Big Thieves As The BLP Piggies If They Did What Is Alleged
The Government’s Barbados Labour Party BLP Blog just published an article DLP Gambling Deal, wherein the BLP states that Barbados Free Press is “Allegedly Managed And Operated By Close Friends Of The DLP”…
AND THEN goes on to quote a comment posted on the Barbados Free Press where a “Fundel” alleged that DLP Leader David Thompson had met with Donald Trump and brokered a deal to give Trump casino gambling rights in Barbados in exchange for campaign support.
What The Deceptive Scallywags At The BLP Blog neglect to mention is that Barbados Free Press wrote and article on this very subject (See Barbados Prime Minister Donald Trump?) and said in part…
“… We already have legalized gambling in Barbados in the form of a slot machine casino in a GEMS hotel under the BLP, and a national government approved lottery.
The issue is not whether or not Barbados will have casino gambling – that has already been decided and implemented and administered by the BLP government. The BLP Blog just seems to be upset about which games and types of casinos are allowed.
The issue is whether or not it should be legal for a political party to sell their influence. We agree it should not be legal for a political party to accept foreign money upon promise of performance if elected. If Thompson and the DLP did this, they are no different than the BLP thieves.
We call upon the ruling majority party – the Barbados Labour Party – to immediately introduce Election Financing and Disclosure Legislation – and to also immediately introduce Conflict of Interest and Integrity legislation. The BLP has a majority – they could make it happen tomorrow.
We also call upon the DLP – Democratic Labour Party to support the immediate introduction of Election Financing and Disclosure Legislation – and Conflict of Interest and Integrity Legislation.
Ladies and gentlemen of the BLP and DLP: do that and you can criticize anyone you want about unethical behaviour. Otherwise, sit down and shut up.
We citizens have had enough.
Message to the BLP: If you are so concerned about the DLP’s Thompson receiving election support from Trump – you have a majority government and (assuming the allegation is true) you can stop Trump and the DLP tomorrow by introducing Campaign Financing and Disclosure Laws.
Your call, Prime Minister! ”

About BLP Blog’s Pathetic Traffic
What a joke! I just did the math on the daily traffic at the BLP Blog … and it looks like they’ve averaged a piddly 86 visitors per day since their inception. Remove the DLP government members who visit their own blog and you don’t have much left.
OK fellow BLP Bloggers – we’ll link again to your propaganda site, but it looks like very few of your online constituents are bothering much with the BLP blog. Golly, I wonder why that is?
Posted by Cliverton in a most foul mood. I enjoy an open debate any day with anyone and I hate to see open lies. When the BLP raises a question or an issue with us, we meet it head on. When any citizen asks a question of the BLP or their BLP Blog, they ignore the question.
Well, I guess when you are the BLP government or their blog, you have to ignore the questions!
