Hamilton Lashley reminds us again that “everyting is de same old, same old ’bout hey!”
About “The politics of inclusion”, our readers said…
Back in September of 2008 before Lashley left the BLP and declared himself as independent, some of our readers had a discussion. I wonder what they would say now?
Accountability for the UDC nonsense and thefts when Hammie was Government Minister? Ya gotta be joking!
Here’s a few selected reader comments from BFP’s Rumour Mill Going Crazy: Is Hamilton “Hammie La” Lashley Crossing The Floor?

He should become an Independent rather than cross the floor.
Once a Dem always a Dem or an Independent.
No politricks of inclusion.

Hammie might be a sure seat in the Pine etc. but crossing the floor again might prove that Hammie cares only about one thing…himself!

The man should start his own party based on open honest transparent governing for the little persons and then do it that way and he will be prime minister within 5 years.

“No politricks of inclusion”
Hants—exactly he needs to declare as an independent and vote his conscience on individual issues, not on what the DLP is offering him to buy his vote and conscience.
He will get more respect and be able to gain a power base, or at least, a real voice on what goes on in Barbados.
No more Politics of Inclusion

This politics of inclusion has really made a mockery of what should be a job where honesty and integrity stood as some of the supposed cornerstones.
During the last election, Peter Wickham in one of his columns suggested that the politics of inclusion was one of the primary reasons for the BLP losing the election. Yet here we go again. Politicians ignoring the wishes of the people.
The politics of inclusion if this is what this is, is nothing more that a bunch of greedy, opportunistic people seeking to take care of themselves. Hamiliton Lashley, Clyde Mascoll, Kerrie Symmonds et al. cannot and should not be trusted in governement. Hopefully the people during the next election (when ever that is) will send another message (to this government) that floor crossing/opportunistic behaviour/greed/ politcis of inclusion should not be readily tolerated.

well he said he will be an independent, however he plans to support government – not sure what the hell that means – in any event I am fairly sure that some consultancy or another will blow his way shortly – I wonder if Minister Lowe will press ahead with his plans to “clean up UDC”, notwithstanding his so-called grass roots appeal – i seem to recall quite a few issues about the operations of the UDC in the Auditor General’s report during Hammie’s tenure as Minister of Social Transformation, not sure that he can escape that stain so easily. It would seem to me that it is not that he has a problem with the BLP but more a problem with the diminished income.
