Full Colour Photo Of Barbados Underground’s Race-Baiting Author “Black Woman Who Reads”

A Young Iain Deane Kneeling In Front Of Famous Actor Jeremy Brett

"I am an old black woman. I was head cook at Kingsland" - A Young Iain Deane Kneeling In Front Of Famous Actor Jeremy Brett

Barbados Underground’s Most Prolific Race-Baiting Author Is Really A Washed-up Old White Guy!

David at Barbados Underground has a problem. He surrendered his audience to “Black Woman Who Reads” and “her” supporters to allow the most vile of threats and racial attacks against people like Adrian Loveridge, the Knox family and others whose skin is not dark enough.

Now… the racists at Barbados Underground are faced with the embarrassment at the revelation that their racist attacks against whitey and Guyanese as led by BWWR were actually the work of a venomous old British white guy named Iain Deane who is a defendant in the Kingsland fraud trials. What a joke!

“Well, you know something, if it was not for old black women like me, wunnah would probably still be indentured. And because of my labour and sacrifice, I am not going to allow you to give our country away and bend the knee…” …old white guy Iain Deane as Barbados Underground’s prolific author “Black Woman Who Reads”

Mr. Deane had an agenda to support his side in a fraud trial so he created an “old black woman” persona and whipped up racial intolerance of the “whitish” old lady Madge Knox who is in the way of Mr. Deane’s ambitions. Deane called for black bajans to stalk the Knox family and other persons who are court witnesses against him in the Kingsland fraud trials.

David at Barbados Underground allowed and supported this racial venom whipped up by Iain Deane who claimed to be “Black Woman Who Reads” an old black cook at Kingsland finally taking sides against her white oppressors – the Knox family. The series of almost TWENTY major articles dominated Barbados Underground for almost a year and during that time blog owner David allowed Iain Deane and friends to rail on against whites, Guyanese and asians.

Here we are six days after the story about Iain Deane being “BWWR” broke at Keltruth Blog – but Barbados Underground has not said a word of explanation about the fact that their most prolific race-baiting author is really a washed-up old white guy who whipped up racial intolerance to suit his personal agenda.

What a joke!

    Where is the full colour photo ???

  2. Underdog

    Hmmm… white person uses “reverse racism” to further his own cause. What does that really say about us?

  3. oldrooster

    u are thick anonymous. The photo is in black and white! Don’t you get BFP’s little joke?

  4. J

    BFP wrote “Deane called for black bajans to stalk the Knox family”

    And NO black Bajans stalked the Knox family.

    Black Bajans are NOT as foolish as BWWR and BFP seem to believe.

    Ian Deane and Madge Knox are one FAMILY. Black Bajans always realized that this was a FAMILY dispute in which black Bajans had NOTHING to gain.

    Win or lose in this case a white Deane get to keep the billion dollar estate. Black Bajans as is historically true get little or nothing from the plantation system.

  5. Anon

    Black Bajans have nothing to gain from this fiasco, so why would they become involved?

  6. Straight talk

    BFP:

    What do you make of Iain Deane’s denial at BU?

  7. Anon

    Does BFP, like this white man, think that black Bajans are stupid? And can be rallied to do the will of anonymous bloggers?

    Things like this lead me to believe that BFP authors are the said same whites as this idiot in the photo, who talk down to ‘knavish’ Blacks to get them to believe and do whatever nonsense you write.

    ==============================

    Tony Hall, an interesting question from which you will not get the truth, as the truth will most likely make the BFP antagonist look like the adolescent they are on this particular article.

    BFP claims of being the number one blog has never been proven to my satisfaction. BU has never made such boastful pronouncements. Yet one factual data point that this layman will use is the responses to the average article on either Blog.

    …..I gine do my part to push the article over 50 response threshold. lol!

    ….Now to the article and what it is painfully laboring to make a point of. That BU by extension of a BU poster is engaging in or has engaged in behavior that has racial or racist overtones.

    Now really? Study this BFP statement below
    (QUOTE)
    BARBADOS UNDERGROUND’S MOST PORLIFIC RAC-BAITING AUTHOR IS REALLY A WASHED-UP OLD WHITE GUY

    Then ask yourself who is doing the race-baiting????????? LOL!

    1: That an old wash-up white guy is race-baiting?

    2:That an assumed black person is giving tacit allowance an access to an Old wash-up white guy to engage in race-baiting?

    just doing my part to make sure there is an adequate numbr of response to BFP postings. Don’t want to give the mainstream media cause for celebration. lol!

    AhahAHhAHA I love Adrian Hinds. So true, so true! BFP is fighting for ‘ratings’.. they have nothing else to brag of in life, you know.

    Anon um is so obvious. Prior to yesterday and my yeoman (no thanks please!)effort in the article “outing” this BWWR person, BFP’s last article that attracted 50+ responses was on the Jan 9th and prior to that Dec 30th i believe. I may not be exact on the dates, but never the less the high response articles have been too few, seperated by a week or two. A simple contrast with BU for the same period makes the case. After bragging as they did you wouldn’t be vex wid dah David fella at BU? …..and who does he think he is to not respond to BFP? ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    pssst, uh tell David to become primeministerial and stay above de fray, not to respond to BFP, that I gine help dem out wid responses tuh duh articles. After all David of BU wouldn’t want to do like Obama, who in an attempt to chide House republicans, made mention of concervative talk radio host Rush Limbuach thereby elevating his ratings and standing even further. ha ha ha ha ha ha

    BFP says,

    Hello Mr. Hinds. If you ran a blog you’d know that the number of comments seldom relate to the number of page views (ie: public interest) of the article. Ten people hanging out at a blog and talking together every day might leave hundreds of comments per day, but have nothing to do with general traffic.

    Now… when exactly can we expect Prime Minister Thompson to declare as policy that government contracts shall not be issued to companies owned by government officials or their immediate family members?

    Thanks!

    Why is Barbados Free Press attacking BU? They appear to be attacking BU because that blog’s call for “ITAL” stopped when their party won the election.

    DLP doesn’t keep their own blog anymore. They don’t need to because Barbados Underground has become the de-facto DLP blog.

    I thought BFP and BU coexisted fighting the same good fight? Is this what it has come to? Petty competition? It is ridiculous. Btw, still loving Adrian Hinds!

  19. Hants

    It does not mattter if BFP authors are whites.

    It does not how many hits they get.

    All that matters is that they provide a forum for us to express our views FREEly.

    With regards to the Deanes, it is sad that the good ones have to suffer through this “family war”.

    Maybe one of the “good” ones should write a tell all novel and make millions. Just load it with sax and intrigue.

    I would be willing to ghost write a character who is a cold ruthless bassard like me.Really.

  23. Oh Please

    “Black Bajans always realized that this was a FAMILY dispute in which black Bajans had NOTHING to gain.”

    The Keltruth site shows all of Deanes allegedly selling shares for $3.5 million US.

    The Keltruth site shows a government site with the Chief Town Planner as contact, peddling the Kingsland lands for $800 million US.

    David Shorey and Richard Cox with instant rezoning Norwoods connections, tie up shares thorugh Clyde Turney and ( ignore higher offer coming in ) with almost identical language as the SBG agreement ( Simmons, Bannister and Greaves ).

    Independent appraissers with some credibility left in their lives valued the lands at approximately $250 million to $365 million Barbados Dollars.

    This was never a black and white issue but rather corrupt land practices at the highest level of both races and among some family members to deny a little old lady her “fair market value”.

    This is standard operating procedure in Barbados that most Barbadians can relate to.

    Ian Deane savagely turned on his aging aunt once he had cut his own seperate deal to sell his shares.

    This is the same Ian Deane, as Executor of the Estate of Colin Deane who failed to distribute the assets set out in the will and according to Barbadian Law and actually got a Barbadian judge to say that this fraudulent action had a time limit on it. The lands willed to specific beneficiaries have since been transferred elsewhere.

    Marjorie Knox has been asking for proper audited statements including fair market valuations from day one which she is entitled to by Barbadian Law. She is still waiting for this information including proper valuations and correspondence from government on their expropriations.

    @BFP i once owned a “Invision” type forum, effectionately referred to as Rumshoplime no.2 by it’s invited members. Things were good until a PP person and others of it’s ilk infested de place and led me to close um down. This members only forum was never advertise nor did i seek mass membership or contribution yet it registered hundreds of thousands of “Hits” almost every day of it’s 1 year existence. So if viewership “Hits” or whatever is your claim to the number one spot, um is a very weak one, that is still to be proven. ha ha ha ha. In addition, i have never heard BU say anything to suggest that they are in a race or in competition with you for the top spot.

    @Hant:
    Many posters on both blogs don’t seem to care who white and who isn’t, but the same cannot be said about the overly sensitive BFP team. What is silly and has been silly from the very first time it was mentioned is BFP bragging, now they have to prove themselves, and maintain the position that set for themselves. If not i gine laugh at dem. Not wid de mainstream media though. lol!

    @Anon
    BU is not and has never been in competition with BFP. BFP’s behaviour is clearly one of a Dog chasing it’s own tail. lol! Come on BFP gih we uh a bark or two so that i may say what breed you are likely to be. cause so far your behaviour on this BWWR issue has been very common lol!

  25. Adrian Hinds

    BFP you know that i got your number, ha ha ha and dat even though your ‘sissy-fied’ over-sensitivity to all things racial is fake at best, you all are safe wid me. ha ha ha ha

    BUT
    People are noticing that while you post several articles trying to build the case that Liz Thompson was racist towards dat Goddard fella, you could not bring yourself to report equally as extensively on Goodridge and son pummeling of that lil black boy up in Highgate gardens

    People are talking about your willingness to construct several article railing against Owen Arthur’s use of the word “Negrocrat”, but refuse to be balance in your comments when the seemly disturbed “Seth” claimed racial discrimination at the hands of some white owners of a supermarket.

    need i go further? ha ha ha ha ha lol!

    Lawyers love these protracted family battles. They collect fees and hope they keep fighting.
    Some family members will eventually die of old age and there will be more legal documents for Lawyers to “process”.

    It must be just wonderful to be a Lawyer in Barbados where you make money from “some peoples idiotic “greedy?” behavior”.

    Now some of the Canadian Lawyers up here have “hit the jackpot”.

    They don’t have to play the Lottery anymore.

    Who is the elephant? The story had nothing to do with me, and i never understood or cared to understand it beyond that fact that the people fighting each other were most likely united in how they viewed persons that look like me. I don’t know how you can decieved a disinterested person. BWWR could have been queen Elizathebitch and it would not have mattered one bit to me.

    If the disputed estate is worth of $1 billion, I wonder how much all former sugar estates in Barbados are worth.

    And does this mean that they can well afford to pay reparations to those still living who laboured long and hard for next thing to nothing,?and to the grandchildren of those who so laboured also?

  30. The Artful Dodger

    Day 6 and still no response from BU except for a denial by Iain Dean under “submissions”.

  31. Sargeant

    I just read Iain Deane’s submission on BU and one thing he stresses is that he is/was an actor. I believe him and his latest role was Black Woman Who Reads (BWWR) on BU where he bored most people to tears with copious postings about a family saga involving land, theft, corruption, political intrigue, dishonest lawyers and crooked politicians.

    The only missing element was sex but I understand the final act hasn’t been written so who knows?.

    I don’t expect to see this on his credits and he can add me to the list of critics who panned his performance.

  32. The Artful Dodger

    Now BU moved his submission over to the blog page and that Pat person ovuh there backing him up. She is in it up to her neck and ain’t foolin no one.

  33. Why is AH being moderated?

    I doubt that BWWR could have been a retired plantation cook.

    I knew/know a number of retired plantation cooks.

    When those old black women retired their hands were so worn out with 50 or more years of slicing, chopping, kneading, washing up and scrubbing for the plantation people and their own families that they quite frequently have carpal tunnel syndrome and even if thie wer inclined to spend their old age defending plantocrats their worn out hands make would make them unable to do so.

    The only people who could imagine a plantation cook spending her old age typing is someone who has NEVER had to work physically hard on a plantation (but who has perhaps benefited from the hard physical labour of others)

    Plantocrats quite frequently have so little respect for their household employees that they do not even visit them in their old age nor attend their funerals. The employees know this and on retirement distance themselves from their former employers.

    Old black female cook wuh!!!!!

    Never in this Barbados.

    Dear Adrian Hinds, do you know what is going on with eaglepointe? I hear when one pay for land they can’t get a deed, and who did he bought that plantation from. Did you hear about the lady who own five sq miles of barbados and living in a shack?for 22yrs she has been paying lawers ,and not one of them are honest, mia and sir fredrick smith is some of them. waiting your reply.

  41. Adrian Hinds

    P.S. p.n, that i do not know of “eaglepointe, did not hear of or understand how someone can hand money over for something and did not recieve the instruments of the sale. No i did not hear of this lady, where she lived, whom she paid nor for how long she had been doing so.
    P.S btw, It still baffles me, how anyone can take another’s hard earned money in agreement to provide a service, and then not provide the service, and is allowed to walk bout freely without looking over their shoulder.

    ==============================

    We all make mistakes. However David’s rationale for allowing the chronicles from the “Trash Pile”on BU, is a fair one, and i don’t fault him for it. It is one thing that sets him apart from the BFP and before them another Bajan of a certain hue who ran the Original Rumshoplime. That they have a lot in common re. blog/forum management probably speaks to perceptions of class, color and creed.

  53. Knight of the Long Knives

    I never got the preception of any bias on BU. I am pretty sure they said they wanted to give an opportunity for both sides to speak their minds. I read the first few articles and then realised that I didn’t care who won the case. Although I read both, BFP often annoys me with their inflammatory headlines and excessively negative rhetoric without any proof or even specific suggestions of wrong doing by the current government. It is easy to say they are stealing but shouldn’t you be able to say as with the BLP “they are stealing in this situation and this one…”? I do agree and condone the persistence on implementation of FOI and Integrity legislation but sometimes it is taken too far.

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

    BFP says

    Integrity Legislation and thieving taken too far? PM Thompson said in public that hundreds of millions of dollars are missing and misspent and that BLP members stashed millions and millions in secret offshore accounts.

    It seems to me that what we’ve said all along is fully proved by David Thompson’s statements.

  54. Knight of the Long Knives

    Yes but what evidence have you or even conjecture that it has been done by the present government that you are constantly throwing accusations. I am not saying you are wrong for calling for integrity legislation and I understand that because of the absence of legislation that it could be happening but until there are specific instances, I believe temperance is in order. Don’t get me wrong I appreciate what the blogs have done to open the eyes of bajans including mine but it is not fair to call a person a thief without saying what they are thiefing, when they thiefing and who they thiefing from. When you do that again I will be with you but until then I will sit on the fence.

  55. reality check

    “When you do that again I will be with you but until then I will sit on the fence”

    That is exactly what a corrupt political system is betting the public will do.

    In the meantime, a minister can contract with himself, family or friends and so on and so forth.

    You are part of the problem.

    Why on earth would ANY politician want to change this?

  56. Adrian Hinds

    I support and will continue to support the call for ITAL. It is not their call, it is our call and in our interest. All of us.

  57. Anon

    BFP is inflammatory, hooked on hyperbole and often baseless in fact – but if they relied on evidence and hard fact for stories, they’d have next to nothing to write about.

  58. Knight of the Long Knives

    @reality check did you read all of my post? I am not saying that they are not or will not nor am I saying stop the call for ITAL & FOI all I am saying is you cannot say “they tiefing” and expect me to fall in line without at least pointing out where they are stealing from. With the BLP and the highway project I heard it I read it saw facts (company known for bribery, not a construction company, formed to deal only with Barbados project, formed in a hotel room, no tender, no transparency), figures (hundreds of millions) and some conjecture (deposited in O$A, Mia Mottley both millionaires) enough to say that a reasonable person will accept this, they have to now prove to me they didn’t steal. For present government I have seen no facts no figures to back up that they are stealing, apart from BFP sayso that is.

  59. Chicago

    Why didnt Thompson declare that government will not issue contracts with companies that are owned by government ministers?

    Why didn’t he do this simple thing. This simple first step a year ago?

    Correct. we don’t have any open lesbian politicians in Barbados but there could be some in the closet or just missing in action.

    There are always exceptions.

    I’ve seen a few articles in the Nation by Bob Verdun and it seems that he was using Todd’s statement to settle a beef that he has with his local representative in Canada. I don’t think any Canadian newspaper would publish that piece of horse manure.

    The Nation gives him a pulpit to preach from and puts Ezra Alleyne and Clyde Griffith out to pasture some of them still stupid under the broken Trident.

    Bob Verdun claims to be a muckraker who is who is always trying to gather attention, and if you follow the shareholders meeting of the major corporations in Canada he always turns up as a “shareholder representative” to badger the board of directors with one motion or the other. He will claim credit for some successes but the winds of change has been blowing for Corporations since Enron and the passage of the Sarbanes/Oxley bill.

    Long before Canada had any openly gay politicians Barbados had gaypoliticians and they were good at their jobs. And because Barbados is a small place we knew exactly who they were and we elected them again and again.

    For the most part they were/are perhaps better at their jobs than heteros*xual politicians because they were/are not distracted by spouses and children.

  73. reality check

    Surely we don’t have to discuss ones race or sexual preference in this day and age for political office.

    Except for the few diehard “racists” and “homophobes” that frequent the blogs this story is really about how did one skilled race baiting, vitriolic, threatening, hatemonger, hijack a Barbadian blog for a whole year using various aliases?

    Where were the normal checks and balances responsibly implemented and instituted by most blogs to prevent this hate and wonton victimization?

    Who was advising him to show restraint and to stop his threats?

  74. Perhaps the assertion made above is incorrect.

    The writer using the alias BWWR made a statement in a post on BU last year, in an exchange with one writer ‘Pat’, which leads to me believe that BWWR is other than who you think.

    Indeed, unless that statement was a deliberate attempt to ‘throw off’, the writer is most likely a local lawyer.

  75. Or rather, Pat made a statement, that inferred BWWR’s identity.

    Unless, Pat also was trying to disguise the identity, then BWWR is certainly not whom you think.

    Surely we don’t have to discuss ones race or sexual preference in this day and age for political office.

    ==============================
    Oh yes we do. We have long heard rumours and gossip about Mia Mottley’s sexual orientation, and unproven statements about specific actions on her part. The BLP, on it’s election 2008 platform often spoke about the “Nastiness” directed at Mia Mottley. Last year she recieved an out of court settlement from a magazine for publishing untruths attributed to her concerning sex, and bodily harm. A reporter attempted to ask a question centered around what has become known as the ‘Homosexaul debate” that engulf Barbados after Mia simply responded to a question about decriminalizing buggery in order to fight aids in prison with condoms. The PM at the time of this raging debate found cause to ask Barbadians to cease and settle and to leave Mia alone.

    During the election campaign tons of reference was made to Thompson’s skin color, where he was born his feminine side etc. Prior to that it was alledged that racist comments were used during the pummeling a lil black boy recieved in Highgate gardens. Prior to that two white tourist where brought before the Barbados law courts for racial discrimination resulting from a vehicular incident on the ABC highway.

    You really need a reality check.

  80. Optimist Prime

    Parliamentary representative for the City and Minister of State in the Ministry of Education said in the House that politicians should declare their sexual orientation.

    But, how can Todd, who represents the City – be so insensitive; arrogant and intolerant of the “diversity of moral behaviour” in Barbados and within the very constituency, which elected him to represent their interest in Parliament?

    Patrick Todd is now arrogantly talking down to the very people who put him in? Since he seems to dislike them, why doesn’t he tell them so?

    Why does he not go a step further and call for commercial entities in the City, which sell sex – to be closed.

    I found it amusing that Barbados Underground and its readers have been on numerous anti-gay rants in the last year. Many articles published calling down fire and brimstone against homosexuals.

    Then this week it is revealed that one of their biggest writers and leaders at BU is not only gay, but recently married a same sex partner!

    It reminds me of that comedy routine video where the black comedian is blind and doesn’t know he is black, having been raised as a racist “white power” child. He becomes a leader of the Klu Klux Klan because he wears the hood and gloves and nobody knows he is black.

    Barbados Underground and their gay-bashing readers have just learned that one of their leaders is a hated homosexual! Wuhloss!

    What is the name of that comedian I would love to see that again.?

  87. Adrian Hinds

    ha ha ha ha Chicago I am not convince that you believe what you just wrote. Do you really? Something occurs (BWWR) posting on BU, The reality is and that facts are that very few BU readers cared for the trash, yet you WISH it were otherwise, and so you seek to qualify your make-belief with a fictional story and characters from some play. I would tell you to GET REAL, but i believe such would be a lost cause unless i spell out how to. Oh what the heck, try pinching yourself for starters, and then bang your head against the nearest wall.

Therefore your original statement needs a second look, as it does not according to Bob’s article includes the person he reference.

    Clico’s collapse emphasises, precisely why the Opposition BLP might have been constantly warning Thompson of the danger of flying on Clico’s jet, since the government has a financial relationship with that company.

    Given the close relationship between Thompson and Parris, it is not unreasonable for Barbadians to feel that their Prime Minister ought to have known what was going on.

    Was our Prime Minister using his office to prop-up Clico, if so – then the DLP government cannot be “squeaky clean,” as he (Thompson) alleged at Holder’s Hill.

    Imagine, the Barbados Prime Minister is in bed with Clico, yet alleged that his DLP government is “squeaky clean.”

    Straight talk

    exactly

    Clico has had too many assets in non income producing assets ( ie raw land for development ). Now that the central bank of Trinidad has had to step in, the company will have to get back to basics and return to those assets which actually produce income.

    The 10 acres that they own which has been designated part of the Ramsar site and potentially part of the new National Park could be part of a reinvigorated South Coast renewal area creating all kinds of new jobs for Barbados able to access international funding?

  113. Re CLICO

    From the Nation website

    http://www.nationnews.com/story/293684164551888.php

    BREAKING NEWS: CLICO rescued
    Published on: 1/30/09.

    NO NEED TO PANIC!

    That was the assurance from CLICO Holdings (Barbados) Ltd. chairman Leroy Parris just a short while ago, even as parent company CL Financial tottered on the brink of financial collapse.

    Parris was speaking at a press conference convened this afternoon against the backdrop of a dramatic rescue of CLICO’s Trinidad and Tobago operations by the Central Bank of that country, where the regional conglomerate is headquartered.

    Speaking at a press conference earlier today in the twin-island republic, Trinidad’s Central Bank Governor Ewart Williams stated that they had taken over the assets of CLICO Investment Bank (CIB), an arm of CL Financial which has been experiencing serious cash flow problems in recent weeks.

    Williams also stated that the Central Bank had transferred all of the third-party assets and liabilities on the books of CIB and Caribbean Money Market Brokers (another arm of CL Financial) to the nationally-owned First Citizens Bank.

    He explained that they took these measures due to the huge regional presence and financial influence of the CL Financial Group.

    “The Central Bank is very conscious of the contagion risks that financial difficulties in an institution as vast as the CL Financial Group could have on the entire financial system of Trinidad and Tobago and indeed in the entire Caribbean region. … The CL Financial Group has an imposing presence with potentially systemic consequences for the financial sector and the economy of Trinidad and Tobago and the entire region.”

    The conglomerate controls over $100 billion of assets throughout the Caribbean and the world and manages assets in Trinidad that are worth over 25 per cent of that country’s GDP (gross domestic product).

    However, Parris has assured local policy holders that CLICO’s Barbados operations are independent and hence, stable.

    “What [has] happened in Trinidad [is] not going to stop Clico Holdings Barbados in our operation to continue to function,” said Parris.

    Parris also reaffirmed Clico Holdings’ commitment to the various projects they announced earlier this week as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations, including the construction of a school and day care centre.

    “I want to let you all know that all of the capital works projects that we spoke about on Monday would be continuing this year as we have planned.”

    Meanwhile, executive chairman of CL Financial, Lawrence Duprey, praised the Central Bank for its action and said that he did not think that the company was facing a crisis.

    “I don’t belive that this will be a crisis. I don’t believe that it will continue or get worse because what we are doing is taking pre-emptive action and this action will cure any problems that we have.”

  114. Straight talk

    But it ain’t got the cash to meet everyday demands.

    Asset rich, cash poor.

    For a bank in a sceptical world that probably spells …. BUST.

    Especially if assets have to be marked to market.

    Note the difference in confidence between a bailed out Dupree and the stern governor advocating a much stricter oversight regime.

    There is more to come in this CLICO bailout.

Adrian, this is deeper than you think since the Trinidadian Government is taking over all the financial services once provided by CIB and CMMB. Think about it my friend. My prayers goes out to CLICO especially Lawrence Duprey who fought and deliver this massive conglomerate to the people of Trinidad and assisted many Barbadians policy owners and employees to live their dreams.

    “If the disputed estate is worth of $1 billion, I wonder how much all former sugar estates in Barbados are worth.

    And does this mean that they can well afford to pay reparations to those still living who laboured long and hard for next thing to nothing,?and to the grandchildren of those who so laboured also?”

    J

    you either have decided to take up the writings of BWWR or you can’t read ( or don’t want to )

    The Keltruth site clearly states that the Kingsland properties were rezoned by cabinet order in 1993 under the driving force of none other than our present PM David Thompson running around with a Canadian developer with his red jacket and a pair of sunglasses.. Such rezonings do not lapse but run with the land.

    To compare this rezoned property ( golf courses and condos ) to other sugar cane lands and call for reparations is at best intentionally misleading.

    The reparations were definitely being paid but only to a select few and definitely not a lttle old lady who laboured on the lands all her life.

    Are you one of the select few or are do you not understand “tiefing” when you see it?

The enfranchizement of it’s majority citizens is well on the way.”

    I second that.

    Tell me why wrote “My prayers goes out to CLICO [who] assisted many Barbadians policy owners and employees to live their dreams.”

    Maybe too many people were living in dreamland; instead of living in the real world.

    Optimist Prime is Clyde Mascoll. He will never be Prime Minister so he remains prime optimist.

    Owen Arthur is right in saying that Allard finances BFP.

    Interesting. I never understood BFP tunnel vision obsession with Graeme Hall Nature Park. But now!

    Watching? where the devil are you coming from with that comment here? It is plain that BFP is interested in hundreds or thousands of different topics and causes. Wa gives?

    Hindsight wrote and J seconded it “…the lives of Bajan whites never interested me…” I am quite sure they don’t lose any sleep over that revelvation, but to put it down on paper actually reflects a problem with the writer.

    And what’s this about “The enfranchisement of it’s majority citizens is well on the way” – Does that mean that everybody is going to open a KFC franchise?

    Like they used to say in the 70’s “heavy man, heavy”.

    Duppy Lizard: Thanks for that smile before I head to my bed. 🙂

  135. Straight talk

    Nine days in from the accusation and still no response from the attack dog BWWR (or should I say no response under BWWR’s handle).

    Wonder why?
