Prime Minister Thompson: BLP “totally wasted several hundred million dollars” on failed Greenland environmental project – but he still nominated Liz Thompson to United Nations’ UNFCCC position!

“What we could have done if we could recapture…the several hundred million that was literally and figuratively dumped into Greenland? All of that was taxpayers’ money that was totally wasted,”

…Prime Minister David Thompson talks about the failed Greenland Dump project pushed by former Environment Minister Liz Thompson. Barbados Advocate: Previous Wastage Hurting Economy.

The consequences of wasting a billion dollars of taxpayer’s money? For Liz Thompson: a promotion!

If you need further proof that David Thompson doesn’t intend to hold the previous BLP government personnel accountable for the waste, theft and outright criminal rape of our future, you need look no further than watching the Prime Minister trying to suck and blow at the same time…

Suck…

A little over a week ago Thompson nominated former BLP Environment Minister Liz Thompson as our country’s choice for the prestegious job of UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) Executive Secretary.

Blow…

Now Thompson slams the very project that Liz Thompson championed – a project that failed because it was an ill-conceived disaster that would have turned into a full-blown environmental disaster had not better minds prevailed.

One Island with one Political Party

My friends, again you should take notice that the fighting between the BLP and DLP is a staged managed event much like professional wrestling. In public the wrestlers hurl verbal abuse, but the dance is carefully choreographed so no one really gets hurt.

The Prime Minister will scream about the poor judgment behind Greenland and hurl abuse in the general direction of the BLP because of the insane waste – but no one will go to jail for any corruption and the person who orchestrated the fiasco gets nominated for a cushy United Nations job!

There is only one political party in Barbados, folks. Once you accept that, the whole thing becomes very clear – as does the solution to ending this corrupt charade.

Barbados Pimp pushes “sustainable” development of sex tourism. All he needs is to recruit your children…

“It is time to stop burying heads in the sand and allowing hypocrisy and political expedience to take precedence over common sense, prudence and good judgment.

Firstly all stake holders must accept the Sex Tourism is a reality and stop pretending it does not exist. Then they must implement policy and strategy to deal with the issues head on.

Specialized training needs to be introduced to related officials, directors and managers in order to level the playing field and to be effective in minimizing the negative impact of Sex Tourism.

Conversely, it is important to note that the decision makers in the Sex Trade are working 24 / 7 and are constantly improving their recruitment, marketing, training and management strategies.”

… Charles Lewis writing The impact of the Global Sex Trade on the sustainable development of tourism at Sexxx Sells blog

Charles Lewis says that sex tourism is here, so why not embrace it?

Self-professed “Sex Industry Expert / Consultant / Lecturer” Charles Lewis is on a mission from… God – er, maybe not from God – to legitimize the Sex industry. Lewis doesn’t expect that Barbados is ready to legalize it yet, but according to him that shouldn’t deter us from structuring everything to best profit from the activities anyway.

There’s lots of foreign exchange to be made selling our daughters and our sons, so why not have our Tourism, Health, Police and Immigration officials “implement realistic strategies” to minimize the negative impact of Sex Tourism while reaping the money?

And Mr. Lewis knows just who the authorities can call to get advice on these “realistic strategies”: Mr. Lewis himself, of course.

Mr. Lewis says “Sexxx Sells”, but being an expert in the sex industry he should also know that younger girls sell better than older girls. By the time the normal prostitute hits 23 years or so, she’s getting too old and used to compete against the fresh 18 year olds and younger girls. The clients want younger girls and the industry strives to keep the customers happy! That’s was “recruitment” is all about.

Mr. Lewis tends to not mention such inconvenient truths.

Mr. Lewis also doesn’t mention the truth about human trafficking, sex slavery and the fact that legitimization of prostitution assists in the “recruitment process” – a euphemism he finds useful to describe some of what pimps do.

His arguments that the sex industry uses and supports the existing service infrastructure in the the tourism economy could easily be said about drug trafficking and drug buyers and sellers.

Charles Lewis as Mafia boss Giuseppe ‘Joe’ Zaluchi in The Godfather

Mr. Lewis reminds me of the scene from the movie The Godfather where all the Mafia bosses are discussing the drug trade and how they should control it to keep it as clean as possible because it is going to happen anyway.

Says Mafia boss Don Zaluchi…

“I also don’t believe in drugs. For years I paid my people extra so they wouldn’t do that kind of business. Somebody comes to them and says, “I have powders; if you put up three, four thousand dollar investment, we can make fifty thousand distributing.” So they can’t resist. I want to control it as a business, to keep it respectable.

[slams his hand on the table and shouts]

I don’t want it near schools! I don’t want it sold to children! That’s an infamia. In my city, we would keep the traffic in the dark people, the coloreds. They’re animals anyway, so let them lose their souls.”

Barbados does not need Mr. Lewis’ advice, thank you very much. His agenda is clear, even though it is masked in a suit and tie. He is a proponent of having our children selling themselves to strangers for foreign exchange. In my value system, and in the minds of tens of thousands of other Bajans, that puts Mr. Lewis just a little lower than toilet bowl scum.

Politicians would do well to remember that if they feel compelled to go to Mr. Lewis for advice.
