Way to go Minister Clarke!

You broke your own record established last year when BFP carried the story of your home on expropriated land.

All Barbados is proud of your new record!

    We have to go to the next level and get him out of the house and into a jail!

    I have been acused on this blog for my inability to read the economic reports, the Central Bank Report in particular. I must confessed that I am yet to be challenged on any of the stats that I have provided thus far on this blog.

    If there is one thing that I will not do ever is to search through the garbage of the international media to find negativity on my country and then seek to promote it as the truth. If I had done that with respect to my history then surely my opinion of Africa/Barbados would be very negative. I am far more patriotic than that.

    Persons who indulged in such practices hate our country and the progress that it has made. Thompsonmiacs or in other words the relics of our colonial past are famous for this kind of behavour. What other way can you find to explain the nonsense that Jerome Hinds aka Jacka** posted on this blog.

    In attempt to pull down the high international reputation and repect of our country and its people this human desease now finds it palatable to rate Barbados among the countries in the world with the larges deficits as a percentage of GDP. That is fiction.

    What are the facts? In dealing with debt issues IMF uses overall deficit less amortization payments. This is calculated as a percentage of GDP at market prices. GDP at market prices is GDP at factor cost plus indirect taxes minus subsidies.

    What is uncertain in his idiotic submission is whether or not he is refering to GDP at market prices or factor cost. In any event the percentage used would still be grossly untrue.

    A slight glimpse at the Barbados Economic and Social Report 2005, Table 3.3-1 would show that for 2004-2005 our deficit as a percentage to GDP stood at 2.6% and for 2005-2006 it stood at 2.2% of GDP. These are the figures that the IMF would use. What is the relevance of this strange report from which Hinds got his figures on Barbados? How competent are these economists? Are these the same economists that advised Thompson? Are they the ones to blame for our economic disaster in the early 1990s.

    It is absolutely sickening to see the extent to which these thompsomaniacs would go to make Barbados and our people look bad in the international arena. Where ever our Prime Minister goes he promotes the positive aspects of our people and country. When ever Thompson gets a chance to travel on the tax payers money of this country he speaks negatively of us.

    I am sure Barbadians will help us keep Thompson and the Dems where they are currently, in the political doldrums.

    I wonder if anyone else heard that ignorant white mad man (initials J.H.) spouting his usual crap on Brass Tacks just now? Can you believe that he is the same man who owned a business (probably set up by his family COW) some years ago and when it went bellyup staff did not get paid because although he had taken money from them for N.I., he never paid in one red cent.

  6. BFP

    So Royalrumble…

    How about that integrity legislation? The BLP said it would be implemented by 1976. Can we at least have a look at the draft?

    😉

  7. BFP

    And what do you think, Royalrumble…

    Should a Minister of Government be able to build a house on expropriated land?

    Royalrumble a.k.a Judas,

    If you had any modicum of intelligence you would accept the varacity of these indisputable global statistics on Barbados…!

    The ” Economist ” is reputable institution .

    The problem for you and the BLP is that Arthur knows it too….. !

    Why Owen says he CANNOT borrow any money for the next 5 YEARS….?

    On the International scene no financial institution is willing to lend a country with a NEGATIVE
    ( – 12 . 0 Deficits as % of GDP ) like Barbados now has in 2007…!

    You are such an idiot.
    I am positive you don’t understand anything of what you have written. You know you did not learn anything in P.R about those things. Neither do you have thye capacity to understand things like factor cost etc.

    First you say that “will not do ever is to search through the garbage of the international media”
    and then in reference to the same article/source from which Jerome quoted you say …..
    “What is uncertain in his idiotic submission is whether or not he is refering to GDP at market prices or factor cost.”

    Why don’t you make up your mind …you can’t sat Jerome is making an idiot presentation and then seek to clarify the ignorance. If it is garbage throw it away.

    …but you do not have a clue…I suspect you called Mascol and he dictated a response to you that you did not fully comprehend.

  10. ?

    It is wiser to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are a fool than to open your mouth and prove it to them.

  11. ??

    ? who you referring to Jerome or no name?

    Royal Rumble

    I am assuming that the royal part is your unswerving loyalty to the monarchy ( not )

    you still don’t get it!

    Its not about the other party. Its about you having had power for 13 years and five years too many. Resign gracefully and get treatment for your addiction to power.

    As usual it is not the addict that pays the price of the addiction but rather the family and friends surrounding the addict—in this case the Barbdian citizen and taxpayer.

  13. ?

    ?? I was referring to the nonsense RR is talking. It would have been better he said nothing.

    Foolish Rumble can you estimate to the nearest million what each of your cabinet is currently worth??? Is there any truth to the rumor that Owing is running at around the $ 60 mill mark this is very remarkable for someone who was about to get out of politics because he could not live.
    I am certain in his thoughts he has planned never to find himself in that level of despair ever again hence his level of stealing from the treasury.
    And what do you have to say about the attorney general earning a living at the taxpayer’s expense while still operating a legal practice and channeling work to his firm to be fast tracked thru his office and the parliament.
    And to what sources can Lynch provide as his sources of his new found wealth, and is there any truth to the rumor that his wealth was questioned by Owing when he bought the Gregg Plantation property?
    Is there any truth to the rumor that Lynette Eastmond used the facilities of the Rural developement commission to have them build her office?
    Is there any truth to the rumor that Owing and his group of crooks got together to steal the piece of land from the poor old man at Holders?
    Is there any truth to what we have been hearing regarding Mia’s lifestyle and behaviour in her private life this does have implications for her public life as well hence the question?

    Congratulations !!! minister Clarke it is not often that one gets to break their own personal record, I am sure though that when BFP finally gives us that money laundering story even you will be hard pressed to keep this record.

  16. Buy or Rent?

    in the interests of accuracy,nothing more..

    he bought the whole of G.Pltn.?
    or is he just renting the pltn big house from C.O.W. ?

  17. Dear BFP (and readers!)

    The no. 75 ranking comes as no suprise to me. After all, The Rt. Hon. OSA is always on about making Bim a ‘world class’ country and so on and so forth, ad infinitum.

    So when it comes to having corrupt politicians, we’re just showing the whole world that Barbados is WORLD CLASS too!

    Yours,
    The Bystander.
