BLP Supporter Commits Arson Again At Adrian Loveridge’s Hotel – Help Needed

Police Continue To Do Nothing About Politically-Motivated Threats, Arson, Break-ins 

We received the following email from Adrian Loveridge earlier in the day…

Friends at Barbados Free Press and Barbados Underground

At around 10pm last night someone set fire (again) to our top meadow and the resulting effect was that it burnt through about 30 feet of our 2 inch high pressure mains water pipe.

The Hotel is currently full and we are without any water.

We are desperately trying to locate 3 lengths of 2 inch high pressure plastic pipe, 1 bend, 1 ¼ to 2 inch reducer and 2 sockets.

Being Good Friday, everywhere we have tried is closed.

If anyone is reading this blog and can help us, please call us at Hotel Peach and Quiet T 428 5682!

Our thanks to the Inch Marlow villagers, two volunteer firemen and the Fire Service for helping put out the fire last night…..

  1. Donald Duck, Esq

    How does bfp know it is a BLP supporter that caused the fire? If this is true why has BFP not reported the matter to the police?

  2. reality check

    if the new regime in power continues to permit this criminal activity and fails to act decisively and immediately, I think it fair to say that they either have no real influence ( read that to mean BLP civil service agents who control the organs of administration ) or are the same as the last lot who got thrown out.

    This messsage really needs to be sent to our foreign embassies who need to warn prospective tourists and investors.

  3. fort_knixx

    What proof do you have that the fire was set deliberately or that it was a BLP supporter? Unless you have proof, it is completely irresponsible of you to to make such an allegation.
    Adrian, I hope you have resolved your water crisis and look forward to an update.

  4. Ahem……I don’t think it was Adrian who said the fire was set deliberately, nor did he say that it was set by a BLP supporter.
    Drugs, crime (most goes unreported) corruption……… God help Barbados.

  5. passin thru

    BLP supporters have been threatening Adrian and his wife for months. Police have been told. NOTHING was done. Wha? You think it was DLP supporters? stupes!

  6. passin thru

    Adrian did say the “someone” set the fire. Wha? you think grass starts on fire on it own in de middle a de night? And maybe the ladder was put against Adrians window and the kitchen broke into itself!

  7. fool me once

    come come now- this fire was predicted and threatened and is the direct result of the police doing absolutely nothing to track down the people who sent the threats many many times

    – they have all the evidence and they have done not one ting- if it was the PM’s house there would be 24/7 investigation until the culprit was found but not when it is someone who has the bravery to speak up about problems in BIM not one thing is done-

    that is the revenge and teaching a lesson attitude that prevails on this island and even if it destroys tourism who cares is the attitude?

    watch for the fallout in the next few years where tourists dont come no more

  8. Hants

    The Police need to investigate this because it could have been a catastrophe if the fire had gotten to a building.

    Everyone has a right to security and safety and something must be done.

    I heard today that 2 houses were lost ia a fire somewhere in St.Michael.

    I hope Adrian gets water asap so he and his guests can get back to enjoying Peach and quiet.

  9. ROBOT

    barbados is a funny place boa !
    how wunna know um iz blp supporters ?

    sounds like the cut-wire situation at the dlp meeting in oistins when dj said blp supporters cut de wires——-

    lies and more lies then !

  10. Tell me Why

    Come on people, how on earth can someone jump to conclusion and states it is a BLP supporter. What about the many houses that are being threatened daily in the heights, the lows and the barely haves. Are these fires caused by BLP supporters?

    This is the time when people are listening out to the crackling of canes burning or the hissing of grass fires around homes. This is a yearly ritual, just like the Californian bush fires.

    BFP, this is were a sensational headline can caused unnecessary thrive between political parties.

    We in Barbados do not use the terms ‘meadow’, since a meadow is (a field where grass or alfalfa are grown to be made into hay). Was that the case?

    As I stated on BU, I empathise with Adrian for the destruction of the piping caused by the fire, but I am not with the talk of ‘arson’.

    By the way Hants, did you show remorse regarding the Foundation School’s fire or the many fires that threatened residence on a daily basis?

  11. Tell me Why

    By the way, Adrian’s letter did not contained blame. He was just sensitising the public of his difficulty in getting supplies, since all the hardware stores were/are closed.

    Did you all check with the fire chief pertaining to his statement of increases in grass fires?

  12. Tell me Why

    BFP. Discussions should be free with posting providing you don’t include vile statements, threats or character assassination. So why am I on moderation.

    Once posters write derogative comments about the opposition especially individuals like Owen, Mia or Mascoll. The spams or should I say ‘manual spams’ enjoy posting these comments.

  13. Justice

    BFP, it is divisive and irresponsible to headline this story the way you have. What if it were a DLP supporter who set the fire knowing the blame would be placed by you on a BLP supporter? Who says it is the same person as before? This is not a party matter…this is a criminal matter. “Arsonist sets fire”…could have sufficed.

    **************

    BFP Says

    The police have done nothing about the earlier threats by a BLP supporter to murder Adrian. This is just more of the same… BUT if the police say it is not a BLP supporter this time we’d listen to them.

    Hello? Commissioner? Police? Hello?

  14. 41

    Sounds like BFP is here for the hype just like any other ‘news’ entity regardless of the facts – ‘truth’ what’s that?

    Yes, Minister.

  15. Chris

    totally irresponsible yet again Barbados Free Press… there are way to many unanswered questions about the fire. IF it was an arson then it could have been set by a BLP supporter or a DLP supporter hopin to cast blame on the BLP OR by someone who felt wronged or threatened by Adrian.

    Your blog criticizes the mainstream media for its bias but your blog acts irresponsibily and in a sensationalist manner no better than the tabloids

  16. Hants

    Tell me Why asks
    “By the way Hants, did you show remorse regarding the Foundation School’s fire or the many fires that threatened residence on a daily basis?”

    I am in Canada and I have an alibi for any fires that occur in Barbados so I do not need to show remorse.
    However,I have great sympathy for all victims of fires.

  17. 77

    Wait a minute here … why would you have 30 feet of 2 inch high pressure main running ABOVE ground?

    Forget fire threat (as a grass fire would not affect such PVC pipes if they were laid underground), HOWEVER, any heavy duty vehicle (like utility truck doing work in the area, etc.) or whatever would be a threat too.

    Not good planning to start with! Tut, Tut.

  18. Justice

    I understand your chagrin at the police inaction, BFP. But how does a threat of murder by someone claiming to be a BLP supporter translate into that same person being guilty of arson because there is a fire to a grass piece nearby? Even Homer nods, it is said.

  19. Adrian Loveridge

    Thank you ALL for your concern and assistance.

    Almost back to normal.

    At 10pm, I think its reasonable to conclude that the fire was started deliberately.

    Regarding the repeated death threats against me and my wife, following the initial report, I have heard absolutely nothing from the RBPF.

  20. Jerome Hinds

    Police reports indicate that Owen Arthur was seen running away from the scene at approximately 10:25 p.m !

    Other eyewitness accounts………indicate Owen was running away from the scene while shouting……BLAME ME……BLAME ME !

    The………..BUCK STOPS AT ME !

    Therefore…….the charge is TRUE……it was the work of a …….BLP ITE !

    Owen de ARSONIST !

  21. Jukecheckedeyskirt

    Speculation and assumption will not prove rather a BLP supporter committed this act of cruelty. However the main fact that Adrian continues to be targeted and the police have not intervene previously to other reported matters during the reign of terror by those other people, I will say we in Barbados need to start worrying.

    The next thing we can start worrying about is that soon there will be the stirring of the racist pot in this country, particularly the manner in which foreign investment is taking over our lands. Look what Barbados has come to.

  22. Bimbro

    At night, the RBPF, are probably, safely, tucked-up in their police stations, having a nice warm cup of Ovaltine!!!!

    Work?? Wha is dah????

    U don’t know whether to laugh, or cry!!!! Plus, is n’t Adrian now a member of the government?!!!!

    If he can’t get this resolved what hope is there for the rest of you?!!!!

  23. Bimbro

    BTW, I thought Bim was supposed to be a relatively, crime-free destination!!!! Who’s fooling who, here!!!!

  24. rumboy

    Adrian, you must continue to lodge a formal complaint against every individual threat made to you. If you have had no response from the RBPF pertaining to the original complaint, then lodge another one and continue to do so until a response is recieved. Perhaps an attorney accompanying you would encourage a response and stimulate action.

  25. iWatchya

    Maybe some hidden cameras would help you catch the criminal.

    Could it be a former disgruntled employee? After all he/she would know how to cause the most damage.

  26. Tell me Why

    Police reports indicate that Owen Arthur was seen running away from the scene at approximately 10:25 p.m !
    ………………………………………………………………………………….
    People, is this the type of character that we should not have close to our Ministers, since he said that he is personal assistant to the Minister of Trade and Industry? Should we reach the conclusion that the threats and vile remarks could have been that of this gentleman along with his hand-pick supporters?

    Here we are dealing with a debatable issue and here come this finger-pointing act which could be a clear case for libel, character assassination or wrongful blaming.

    Jerome, you seems to be part of the propaganda machine leading up to the elections and maybe, you could be responsible for the threats against Adrian to gain empathy for the party.

    This is your confirmation:

    Grass fires at this time are a reality due to the plentiful dry scrubland around. As the fire chief said, there were thirty-five last weekend alone.

    Obviously there are some match happy people around, but it takes a bit of a jump to accuse a BLP supporter of such.

    Solution? If you have scrubland around your property then trim the twenty or so feet from your boundary.

    Utilities should all be buried, at least a foot or so.

    5/ How many times have you found a ladder up against your bedroom window – placed there at 3am – in the last 6 months?

    And now after 6 months of threats and multiple attacks, you say that this fire set itself!

    Chaaa!

    It looks like the same old gang is back making threats against Adrian Loveridge. What can you do? The police don’t do nothing.

    If RBPF see um running away with a can o lighter fluid they too busy investigate.

    If bullets hit a bystander police tell it not one o their guns then close the investigation.

    No one safe anymore. When we gonna get some proper policing on this isle?

  32. Cancerman

    BFP – can you verify that the time above is the correct time message sent? Want to ensure no delay in case IP address was used multiple users in the same evening.

    In terms of listening in on the IP address I think you are watching way too much sci-fi – as you type directly onto a web site abroad this is nigh impossible. But maybe you can elucidate this point more clearly. [if you mean you can read every packet sent out sure you can for an email where packets are sent in a continuos stream sure if you have a the right tools/people].

    PS. I agree with other comment it was irresponsible to use the headline you did ….. unless of course you got your training at the National Enquirer or News of the World.

    Good night and Good luck.

    BFP says,

    The message was sent at Mar 22, 7:55 PM GMT

  33. reality check

    the fires and death threats against Adrian have occurred a number of times before this date. Now we have Adrian telling us the fire was deliberately set.

    He is credible and not these BLP apologists who want not only a smoking gun but a copy of the movie showing the fire being lit or the bullet entering the body. Once they have that they will say Adrian provoked the incident and it was self-defence.

    The smoking gun IS the IP address of these individuals and Mapother who has admitted sending health or environment officials to shake down Richard Goddard.

    The Barbados constitution guarantees personal liberty. If this is a charade RBFP just keep doing nothing. The message is coming out loud and strong.

    well I dont think death threats should be taken likely but I also think that it is irresponsible to keep calling the person that is doing this “a BLP supporter ( do you know this for fact) , or making general statments like “the government,” “the RBPF is or is not doing whatever… I dont think that this is the forum for these accusations.

  36. Rumplestilskin

    BFP/ Bimbro,

    Get real. I clearly stated that there are probably persons setting these fires islandwide and therefore the land near Mr.Loveridge is no exception. How does my statement translate into ‘fires setting themselves’?

    Sarcasm does not address a reasoned thought.

    ‘Primary school children Bimbro’?

    Agreed, one can teach primary school children anything and they will follow instructions (although they are getting smarter these days).

    But a learned person analyses what he or she reads before following hook, line and sinker.

    To make a conclusion there must be a reasonable chain of reasoning and evidence.

    Sure, he has had threats and those persons should be brought to account, which can easily be done, but automatic linkage of things that bajans deal with every day and whichever warped person threatens him is not automatic.

    ****************

    BFP says,

    No problem, Rump. We’ll just ignore six months of death threats and threats to burn the hotel in our decision making process!

  37. Rumplestilskin

    Now, having stated my last post ‘above’.

    It is unfortunate that he has had no response from C&W whose network the threats are made from nor the Police.

    Maybe, if Mr.Loveridge can source one and be willing to pay a fee, there may be hackers capable of identifying whom the persons are who are making these threats?

  43. SISTER BABY

    Hi Adrain, I am indeed sorry to hear what is happening to you over there in Barbadosland. In fact it was just today I was telling some of my Guyanese people that you took an old delapidated place in Barbados and turned it into a posh boutique hotel. I decided to check and see how you are doing by coming to this blog, and I am utterly surprised at what I have just read here. I was under the impression that Bajan people were gentle and sincere people, at least that is how they come across in Guyana, but I am disgusted at what is happening to you. Look just chuck up the place and come to Guyana. Open a nice little place in Georgetown, out grand capital city and you will do well. We would love to have you. We love white people in Guyana, we do, so come on over and make yourself at home. I will send Delta Airlines to pick you up and your wife and family. Delta Airlines starts service to Guyana on June 2nd, and something special in the air is coming soon to Guyana in the form of American Airlines. I have been busy promoting these airlines to Guyana that is why I don’t come to this blog, plus I blog on my country’s blogs. Well Adrian don’t let them get you down. I can’t imagine all the stores were closed there, my, they are really Christian there, stores were open in Guyana on Friday. Bye Adrian, and Welcome to Guyana-Bienvenue au Guyane

  44. Technician

    It is amazing at the ignorance coming out of this blog about this story.
    I must say that I was a bit skeptical about the fire and the claims of arson because of the favorable conditions prevailing right now here in Barbados.
    The dried grass, high winds etc. are fires waiting to happen anywhere.
    What changed my way of thinking however, is where this fire started.
    Without going into details, my advice to others is to first see for yourself by going there.Look at where the fire started and where it ended then decide.
    I doubt that most of you even know where Peach and Quiet is actually located, yet you all come here and talk as though you are experts.

  45. Technician

    Why leave out the other comment BFP?

  46. Tony Hall

    BFP,
    It was very disingenuous of you to start your article with the caption indicating that a BLP supporter started the fire. Mr. Loveridge did not accuse anyone of starting the fire. Why should you? I am not a BLP supporter, far from it, but you cannot make accusations without facts. There are many factors which could have been responsible for the start of the fire. I noticed recently that you have been going down a dangerous path. If this is being done to excite the readers of the blog that may happen for short term gain, but if this continues you are going to lose credibility in the long term.

    ***************

    BFP says,

    Mr. Loveridge accused an unknown person of starting the fire.

    In context, we are assuming that it was again a BLP supporter – as the persons who have been threatening to burn down his hotel and murder his wife for the past six months are definitely BLP supporters.

    I suppose we could say, “In the past, the people threatening to arson Mr. Loveridge’s hotel and to murder his wife were BLP supporters as evidenced by their comments on the various blogs. We are therefore assuming that the recent arson at Mr. Loveridge’s hotel was also by a BLP supporter.”

    However, you are correct Tony. Perhaps it was a Martian that started the fire because Martians don’t like the word “peach”.

    I mean, there are many other reasonable explanations aside from the one we have chosen: that the BLP supporters who have been threatening to arson his hotel for the past six months actually did so.

  47. me

    But the point is that if you keep on with pushing this BLP vs DLP thing you are doing the country a disservice. The person that set set the fire ( if this is fact) is a SICK /EVIL individual. Period! He is not representative of a POLITICAL PARTY. What makes our democracy sop great is that out two main parties coexist without much violent strife. Headlines like yours seek to destroy that balance.

    Why promote strife???

    Give your head a shake, man!

    The official blog of the Barbados Labour Party still links to BFPE – a website that posted vile threats against Adrian Loveridge and others… and also published a poem at Christmas that was a threat to arson the Loveridge hotel and murder Adrian and his wife. Those threats are still up on the internet at BFPE.

    Don’t talk to us about “promoting strife” while the BLP still promotes the views of the people who threatened and still threaten to burn down a hotel and murder the owners!

    Go ahead and get the BLP party to take down their link if you are so concerned about “Promoting Strife” !!!

    I guess you are the only one who fails to see that the threats against Mr. Loveridge and his wife and business always have been highly political – and still are, as evidenced by the continued support of the Barbados Labour Party for the blog and people who are making the threats.

    None so blind as those who refuse to see, I guess.

    You would have us and the Loveridges keep quiet about the arson and threats then? And whom would that benefit except the people making the threats?

    Are you also such a coward where threats to your own family and employment are concerned?

  51. Justice

    BFP, you are being unreasonable.No matter the threats and the co-incidence of the fire, you cannot say that it was a BLP supporter. You could say that there was a suspicion that it was a BLP supporter, but your statement leaves no doubt as to who it was. How do you know? AL did not, and does not pose a threat to the BLP as great as David Thompson. I have not heard of any threats to him or his family. Are you sure that the threats to AL on this blog are coming from a BLP supporter. WHY? Suppose it was a DLP ploy to gain electoral sympathy?

    ****************

    BFP says,

    Split hairs all you want. After months of threats to arson and murder against Loveridge – provably coming from BLP supporters – and knowingly linked to and promoted by the official blog of the Barbados Labour Party (and still linked to and promoted by the official BLP Blog) we have a right to conclude that the arsons, break-in, ladder up against the bedroom window etc… are the work of BLP supporters.

    Further, we conclude that the reason that the Royal Barbados Police Force have failed to arrest the perpetrators is because they have identified them and are horrified at who they are.

    The RBPF also knows that the official BLP Blog links to and supports a blog that is still engaged in death threats to Adrian and his wife.

    If the police don’t like what we say, they are welcome to arrest the perpetrators and prove us wrong.

    THEN we can also talk to the Commissioner of Police about why he allowed his men to be misused by the Director of Public Prosecutions to collect back rent from Ronja Juman. We’d like to hear what the Commissioner has to say about having police officers search a woman’s vagina for back rent after dragging her out of bed at 3am.

    If the police don’t like the truth being published, then they shouldn’t allow themselves to be used as an instrument of terror by a corrupt Director of Public Prosecutions.

    The election is long over….I would think that Adrian Loveridge would have benefitted by the fact that The DLP is now the government. I guess CRAZY and EVIL BLP supporters control the Police , Cable and Wireless, the stores that sell matches, the fire trucks, etc.

    Like I said before to link every negative that happens to Adrian Loverdige to the BLP is silly and simply promotes strife.

    AL perhaps should involve the current government in his discussions with the police and C&W

    A woman lost her life in a fire yesterday…a crazy BLP supporter set that one too…

    This is not responsible reporting BFP, in any way

    **************

    BFP says,

    Then perhaps you could direct your indignation to the police and Cable & Wireless. Perhaps after doing nothing about the threats for months, they will listen to you.

    Perhaps the Barbados Labour Party will also listen to you about not linking to and promoting the BFPE blog that has been instrumental in making the threats to rape, murder and arson against Mr. & Mrs. Loveridge.

    Good luck.

    TELL YOU WHAT, ME…

    If the official blog of the Barbados Labour Party takes down the link to BFPE and the associated sites run by the same people, we’ll change the title of this story to reflect the “suspicion” rather than a statement of fact as you want.

    If the official blog of the Barbados Labour Party continues to link to and promote blogs that threaten to murder Mr. & Mrs. Loveridge, we will leave the story as it is.

    2 comments yet to be posted and BFP talks about spin…….you guys are such hypocrites!!

  54. Technician

    BFP …..AL said he was informed by a C&W official , that they had passed on the information to the RBPF.
    Give C&W some slack, they have done their part!!

    ******************

    BFP says,

    We’ll give C&W credit when we see the quality of the information they passed on to the police and also the extent of their efforts.

    C&W has a duty that goes beyond merely passing on a piece of paper and then washing their hands.

  55. Justice

    BFP, you say the threats came “provably from BLP supporters”. Did you or AL give their name(s) to the police? And this Juman case you keep mentioning. Does she not want to sue for this unlawful affront to her dignity? Most lawyers would be glad to take the case, I imagine. Or is she (and BFP, it seems) content to just say that it happened so as to condemn the police?

    **************

    BFP says,

    First of all, even a cursory examination of the BFPE blog is enough to say that the operators of the blog are BLP supporters.

    And, of course, the BFPE blog made the threats and still has them posted. Look for yourself.

    And yes, the police are aware of this and were provided with IP numbers that do lead back to the perpetrators. The police have not acted though.

    Also aware of these threats is the official blog of the Barbados Labour Party, who nonetheless continue to link to and promote the very BFPE blog that has posted the murder and arson threats against Loveridge.

    As a further reference, you might consider that 2 + 2 = 4.

    Insofar as the Ronja Juman case goes, all the documents and her statement are published here at Barbados Free Press. The fact that she may or may not have been further intimidated to take down her website and keep her mouth shut only proves the extent of the corruption that is endemic to our justice system.

    In any other country where such documents were posted, the media and the opposition would not rest until they had answers.

    Justice for ordinary folks? In Barbados? Where do we start…

  56. Justice

    Yes, BFP, 2+2=4 but sometimes it can be 22 as well! Reflect on that!

    **************

    BFP says,

    Oh yes… the elites can make them into whatever they want as they spin spin spin.

    But 2 plus 2 still equals 4 to us stupid ordinary folks.

    Now, why don’t you ask the BLP why they still link to and support a blog that has made threats to arson and murder?

  57. Justice

    I’m afraid I’ll have to pass on that request, BFP. I’m not in with the BLP. Re the Juman case, why does she not use her own initiative to get justice? You must excuse the media, some of what Ms Juman wrote may be actionable if published by the media without proof. But I am worried that the lady could be so “unfaired” without any redress. You have done your part, though.

  58. Tell me Why

    I have not heard of any threats to him or his family. Are you sure that the threats to AL on this blog are coming from a BLP supporter. WHY? Suppose it was a DLP ploy to gain electoral sympathy?
    ………………………………………………………………………………….
    I keep asking this question regarding BFP aligning the BLP with the threats against Adrian. Polititics have the same behaviour pattern like war. Both use propaganda to create empathy. Just check the articles from people like Jerome or WIV and you will see what I mean.

    I will keep saying that those articles could be from operatives without the party’s knowledge.

    ****************

    BFP says,

    EXCUSE ME, Tell Me Why!

    1/ We said “BLP Supporter” – of that there is no doubt. Read the articles.
    2/ The BLP is supporting and promoting the BFPE blog that is making the threats – such support and promotion being given through the links on the Official BLP Blog. This issue has been brought to the attention of the BLP and discussed on their blog.

    What don’t you get about this? The official BLP Blog and thus the party, has made their choice.

    We’ll give C&W credit when we see the quality of the information they passed on to the police and also the extent of their efforts.

    C&W has a duty that goes beyond merely passing on a piece of paper and then washing their hands.
    ——————————————————————-
    And pray tell us o mighty one….just what else is C&W supposed to do….put the name of the person on this blog?

    Explain to us slow people what other duty C&W has to perform in this instance.

    *************

    BFP says,

    That’s easy, Technician. We refer you to the duties of telecommunications suppliers under the Telecommunications Act. Have a look and then get back to us if you have any further comments.

  60. Tell me Why

    BFP, I will say it again and again, and hope the cows will come in. Propagandalist operates like a business especially when the stakes are high, like winning a government. Operatives are creative in pretending, implying, interpreting and playing with the minds of citizens for empathy. These people would set about abusing and threatening themselves. This behaviour represents suicidal bombers who will take their lives for a particular cause.

    I am still of the opinion that your headlines and political statements might be contributing to the instability within the political sphere.

    We are only rehashing beaten stories while our new administration remain on its honeymoon. If the RBPF is in receipt of these threats against Adrian, just one phone call by the Attorney General is all it will take to get proceedings going, or maybe, you are aligning this administration with the same behaviour as the Arthur’s administration.

    Have you ever heard

    ****************

    BFP says,

    It looks like you hit send in mid-rant, TMW. That’s ok… we’ve had that happen ourselves.

    The piece you seem to be missing is the endorsement by the official BLP Blog of the BFPE Blog that has made many of the threats… even after the BLP Blog had been advised of the situation. As far as the police go, they have been given the necessary information to identify and charge the person(s) involved, but have not done so.

    If these are not the true circumstances, undoubtedly the police will contact Mr. Loveridge with the true story.

    As far as our “headlines and political statements might be contributing to the instability within the political sphere”, we believe that any instability comes from the government’s failure to adopt a Ministerial Code immediately as promised. This undermines the government’s credibility as voters wonder why the government has reneged on its promise to impose ethical standards upon its Ministers.

    That and the lack of transparency regarding the Prime Minister’s use of private business jets has contributed significantly to instability and a growing realization by voters that not much has changed so far with the election of the DLP.

  61. Tell me Why

    how about releasing my post sent around 5.00 am your time.

  62. me

    LOL

    Simply put everything is great if the Government, The RBOF, C&W, the NHTA, all and sundry do things the way YOU BFP whoever you are want them done, in the time frame you specify and to your terms! I cant wait to see this new political party that you will be controlling…LOL.

    I maintain that Adrian should not be having any problems right now since the BLP are in the opposition!

    BUt BFP you are incredible…

  63. Tell me Why

    BFP. I post an article since yesterday and you refuse to release it. Could you inform me about your action. No vile language, threats, innuendos are within this article. Why BFP?… that’s certainly not FREE.
