Ezra Alleyne Tackles Adrian Loveridge, But Avoids Mentioning Barbados Free Press

Alleyne Says He Doesn’t Want To Even Breathe The Same Air As Loveridge

Labels Loveridge As “Minor Innkeeper Who Dabbles Sometimes In The Difficult Art Of Self-Expression…”

Ezra Alleyne seems to be all upset about a Barbados Free Press article Ezra Alleyne’s Spin Doctor Mathematics written by Adrian Loveridge, so he has written a retaliatory piece in The Nation News called Of Two Hazards.

Ezra’s mathematics of success are still wildly reminiscent of LSD trips as portrayed in bad Hollywood movies. According to Erza, the fact that we spent half a billion dollars on Cricket World Cup and made 24 million in ticket sales is fabulously successful.

Uh huh.

Shhhh! Don’t Say “Barbados Free Press”

In his Nation News editorial, Ezra Alleyne names the headline of the BFP – Loveridge article “Ezra Alleyne: Spin Doctor Mathematics” but never mentions where the article appeared! Readers of The Nation News are left to wonder just where they can find Mr. Loveridge’s article and what it really said.

It is an interesting problem that faces the editors at The Nation News. Increasingly, they are forced to respond to articles that appear in Barbados Free Press, or to steal our story ideas. In media scrums, the Prime Minister is regularly asked about Barbados Free Press and he mentions our blog occasionally even when no one else brings up the topic.

The Barbados Advocate said that Barbados Free Press “is having a strong impact upon politics in this country” and several members of government frequently write in our comments section.

Yet in the midst of directly replying to one of our articles, The Nation News editors just can’t bring themselves to print the words “Barbados Free Press”.

I wonder if they know how silly they look.

    Nation news looks silly alright. Same as Ezra’s mathematics.

    BFP, keep stirring up the politics with that big coo coo stick of yours until we get all the lumps out.

  3. BK

    Keep pushing BFP. Without the BLP realizing it their obsession with manipulating the media has given rise to BFP as a pressure group to fill the void not taken by the DLP.

    Ezra’s is a simple case of one side accounting. Things are changing rapidly and more and more are asking questions. What good is it to brag about how much revenue CWC has brought in without discussing the related expenses. Ezra probably wrote the article after listening to the song ” Lucy in the sky diamonds,” a song that sadly he is very familiar with. I hope after all the accounting information on CWC is published he does not have a relapse.

  5. True Native

    BK: I may be wrong, but I have a feeling that the DLP are waiting for the tally-up at the end of the CWC, and then they will come out with all guns blazing. If not, I am going to be one very sorry, disappointed person. But don’t forget that BFP also promised us a “shocker” over a month ago, and it hasn’t seen the light of day yet. I’m still hoping.

  6. passin thru

    Methinks that two things have happened with bfp shocker money launder.

    1/ Something happend with Marcus family. He been gone for a few weeks on this blog only here once in a while.

    2/ maybe bfp waiting til after cwc.

    I hope marcus and shona are well and the family.

    Ezra should write a book on how cocaine can destroy one career instantly and make you lost all off your assets

    Ezra is now a writer of humour with the local daily.

    Yes! John….

    But what is (was) his real real profession?

    Ezra is still practicing Law in the Law Courts. I could give an example of his laughable incompetence but my identity might be compromised.

  15. Wishing in vain

    I did not know that he did coke the snorting kind and not the drinking kind.
    Anyway on a different note can anyone tell me what the Gov’t is doing with regard to the building that they are erecting at the roundabout at the Newton junction this building is about 6 years in construction by gov’t wokers how many more will it take to bring it to completetion or is there a problem with it that it has stalled for so long.
    Once again our money and we replies to our questions what really is the hold up with this project? we have invested a great deal of funding to get it to where it is and maybe we should put some thrust towards finishing it or better yet come clean and tell us why you have taken so long with completetion

    Think I saw somewhere that the Trini contractor is up for something or the other before a court in T&T or was that the USA.

    Also saw that the BIDC has put deadline after deadline to no avail.

    Standard crap.

    I hear all sorts of rumours about the actual ownership, not sure if this is one of those BOLT jobs, …. but it is sounding like it.

    BOLT = Build, Operate, Lease, Transfer ……… but just BOLT says it all.

    Does anybody know if we (as in the people of Barbados) actually own the building and the land?

    I’ll have to look more closely at the sign next time I pass.

    It seems kind of lonely all on its own up there by the Henry Forde Roundabout.

    WIN/JOHN,
    I have posted on another side of thr blog the fact that Karamath is a thief like Owen and a criminal. I also posted links with his arrest in Trinidad in relation to the airport scandal. He also owns the desal plant in T’dad and is part ower of the one in Barbados with Bizzy and Cow. There was also an investigation in relation to the awarding of the desal contract in T’dad. He apparently paid some money in order to get the contract. BIDC I maintain should have investigated this thief before. This is not the first time he is being sued for cost over runs etc. He is obviuosly good company for all thise politicians who are interested in bribes. Karamath is also building houses in Barbados. Maybe there is a link between him and MM.

  19. No-name

    sorry the above post about Karimath under anonymous was mine

  20. Wishing in vain

    Ok thanks for the heads up I have been seeing this building going nowhere and wondered what was going on with it now I know only to well more steal in there to!!!!
    Who you think that he is in bed with here, is Hallam Nicholls, Bannister and Owing the quiet partners in his projects here on the island if he is as crooked as he appears to be this same group would fit in well with his style.

  21. No-name

    I am not sure, but I wonder why no one is talking about Karimath who has a really bad reputation.Surely the nation with its connections in Trinidad should be doing some ionvestigated journalism about Karimath. Why do we encourage such persons to do business in Barbados?

    From what I hear Nicholls submits quotations for material/equipment required by any gov’t department and for every gov’t vehicle.I have been talking to some of my fellow gov’t officers and seems as though his hand is in every conceivable thing.

  22. No-name

    People in Barbados should about the type of people the BIDC and Gov.t are in bed with. I am almost certain that Karimath is building those houses in Apes Hill right next door Noel Lynch’s house. Maybe someone on the blog may know for sure.

    We need to make sure that thiefs like Karamath are not in control of our water resources especially seeing that he has interest in IONICS Barbados.Civil Servants are increasingly becoming concerned about these Gov’t Private Sector relationships/

  23. Wishing in vain

    Nicholls was Owing’s pimp and friend and money mover they wheel and deal together all the time any deal that Owing does Nicholls and Bannister share the spoils and then Nicholls is the one that moves the money around and divides up the various shares and then deposits in offshore accounts for the three of them, unlike Owing collecting and depositing his cheque for $ 750,000.00 but then again this one was too small a cheque to worry to go offshore with it.
    We have also learnt that recently there has been a cooling of the relationship between Owing and Nicholls as a result of Owing’s new marriage we understand that the most recent Mrs Arthur knowing what she did about Nicholls providing female service girls to Owing and the lifestyle that they indulged in while they were close, she has asked Owing to cease his relationship with Nicholls, therefore we are not sure how the deals are being split at the moment we will have to see how the BOLT flyovers were sorted out between themselves.
    Is there a link to the storage facility, the Jail and the flyovers? There certainly is between the Jail and the storage facility they are both being built by the same company that Nicholls and Bannister involved after they did not get the local contractors to pay them bribe money they sent the contract offshore so they could factor in their very healthy fees in excess of $ 100 mill, I long to learn the name of the company involved in the flyovers if I were a gambling man I would bet that Nicholls, Bannister and Owing are involved and either the same company or a sister company is getting the contract to Bolt these flyovers.
    What a corrupt island we have turned out to be with Owing at the head of the line.

  24. Straight talk

    WIV
    Structural Steel Systems (3S) is the company involved with the flyovers.

    I’m with you on this one, obscure companies and government multi-million projects seem to go hand in hand.

    Check previous post, and Google them ( you won’t have much luck ).

    KARAMATH PAID 1000000.00 TO ONEIL GRAHAM TO GIVE TO MINISTER THOMPSON TO GET THE CONTRACT ALL THE BUSINESS PERSONS IN TRINIDAD TALKING ABOUT IT

  26. Rumplestilskin

    Now if there were required presentation of financial reports, detailed list of expenditures filed at GIS under legislation, that all citizens could view, this could be analysed more fairly and accurately.

    Citizens are thus left to guess at costs and speculate as to who has what contracts.

    Legislated disclosure of financial statements and detailed expenditures on all projects is a MUST for citizens to be satisfied as to the use of taxpayer funds.

  27. No-name

    It was begining to look like I was the only one concerned about Karamath. I have posted several previous links to his corrupt dealings. The Gov’t surely must have done their research on Karamath before givine him all these contracts……..but then again his character coincides with that of Owen, Lynch, Nicholls etc.

    It is this sort of behavour that breeds bloody revolutions.

    …. and back to the “desal” plant here in Barbados!!

    Now here is a beast that needs to be investigated.

    Understand that and you will understand the total mess into which we have allowed ourselves to be placed.

    Funny Ionics should be involved in the Trinidad desal plant and scandal, as well as the gentleman who is/was building the building up by the Henry Forde Roundabout.

    Very funny indeed!!

    I am sure the GOB moved heaven and earth to find someone with the qualifications of the gentleman concerned.
