How good are the BLP at repackaging a corrupt and greedy team?

In January 2008, Bajan voters kicked Owen Arthur, Mia Mottley and the corrupt BLP gang out of government.

Now Arthur and the Barbados Labour Party are offering the same old team to Bajan voters. How good are the BLP at repackaging their corrupt, greedy leadership? How good?

Well, if the BLP was a horror movie called The Shining, they could package it just like this…

  1. I love it, wow, if you never saw the original? OMG!

  2. The point here has been missed.We should focus on how we should elect people to high office.

    There is no difference between the 2 parties in my opinion. Both parties take it in turn to dupe the public into believing they are better than the other; yet when either wind office, they carry out the same or similar agenda as the the other party next.

    Prior to the 2008 election,we were told by one party how corrupt the other party was, displaying so-called evidence.

    Four years later this claim is still being banded about. If one party has evidence to prove the other lied steal or borrowed, which may be against the law, it should proceed to bring a case against the other in a court of law and have those responsible prosecuted.

    Four years later, with no action being taken, brings me to conclude there is no truth or, those critical are just as guilty as those they are criticizing.
    If there are no laws currently on the statue books to use to prosecute, why not?

    Again 4 years have passed where those laws should have been implemented so as to halt or prevent a repeat of it happening again.

    The truth of the matter is: There is no difference between the 2 parties.The party which is in power is as guilty as that out of power.

    If one witnessed a crime or is aware of a crime committed; refuses to take action to prosecute or to take preventative action, he is as guilty as the guy who has committed the crime.
    I would like to see good governance; transparency, integrity, especially those who are holding the public purse. There is temptation in many organizations and ‘Humans’ are weak. Some kind of legislation should be on the statue books so as to deter those who weak.

    The law should be applied equally to all who breaks the law.

    It is high time now, we should be pressuring those who are in office or are thinking of running for office, if he breaks the law as applied, will be harshly dealt with no mercy.

    This brings me to conclude that neither party can claim to be credible when it comes to being HONEST with the public it assumes to serve.

    Really, that Arthur the BLP group is thrilling and suspenseful. Film producer, Michael Bay should consider them for movie making. First, Kensington oval, the stadium was built on land that belongs to Violet Beckles not the Barbados government. That woman, Violet Beckles produced land deeds proving that property on which Kensington Oval was built rightfully belongs to her. Beckles had land deeds proving she was owner of at least 200 other properties that includes the famed Sandy Lane Hotel Resort in St. James. Beckles had in her possession the land deeds and a will. The will, incidentally was reviewed in 1990 by then Attorney General, Mia Mottley. Mottley in 1990 confirmed Beckles as beneficiary of the will. Clyde Denny, another victim of land theft willingly gave up his house and land to the Barbados Government for construction of the Eagle Hall Market. Denny was relocated to Passage View, Passage View Road in St. Michael by government but never compensated for the loss of his property. So, Bajans are not surprised that the property of which sits the home of BLP member Gline Clark rightfully belonged to a private owner but seized by government.

    The Codringer family of five (all dead) suffered at the hands of someone’s greed and incompetence. Their home at Arch Cot Britton Hill you know collapsed in a cape beneath it. No building on that land should have been allowed because it was caved. Dale Marshall, a BLP member and attorney general at that time blamed no one, “it could have happened to anyone” he said. That property Dale knew was linked to the Mottley family involving Mia Mottley and the incident occurred under the BLP government with Owen Arthur at the helm. Mind blowing. That’s mind blowing but character of the BLP.

    The BLP around August 2007 created a look-alike version of the Barbados Free Press site and used their logo. The BLP attempted to confuse the public and to draw traffic from the genuine Barbados Free Press posts. In doing this, they, the BLP entered into plagiarism and copyright theft. . . Mind blowing. That’s mind blowing but character of the BLP. The Barbados Labor Party prompted a website that involved arson, rape and murder of a political opponent of the government. Arthur refused to acknowledge a letter from the victim of death threats and the police would not investigate because some of the death threats were forwarded from a computer used by a BLP member. . . Mind blowing. That’s mind blowing but character of the BLP.

    IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE IN BARBADOS. Corrupt lawyers, politicians and government workers are not prosecuted and or convicted. Otherwise, all would be residents of Dodds in St. Philip: Owen Arthur, Mia Mottley, Dale Marshall, Gine clark, Leroy Parris, etc. Bajans did not deserve David Thompson and don’t deserve Owen Arthur.

    Both the DLP involving David Thompson and the BLP involving Owen Arthur are tainted by mountains of mess but the BLP mess mountains are more immense. Stuart and the DLP cannot hide the recent S&P downgrade or CLICO. Barbados before the 2008 general election was handed three S&P downgrades. Arthur and the BLP cannot hide this. Barbados during a better economic climate was handed three S&P downgrades. This occurred during the BLP government administration with Arthur at the helm. The BLP before 2008 was not financially sound. Three S&P downgrades proves this.

    The Al Barrack mess mountain originated during the days of Arthur and the BLP. They know this, can’t hide it, that or the $75,000 campaign cheque that Arthur invited into his personal banking account. VECO is another BLP mess mountain and embarrassing. Owen Arthur, Mia Mottley and Dale Marshall gave the VECO Corporation (Alaska) a government contract WITHOUT TENDER. VECO built the prison at Dodds in St. Philip but had no record of building prisons and the prison project extended millions OVER BUDGET. The Nigerian Water Heater Project is yet another BLP mess mountain and embarrassing. Arthur invested 2.4 million in a water heater project. No water heaters were produced and the 2.4 million was lost and or unaccounted for. Seems to me Arthur and the BLP is responsible for a lot of mess-ups, want to publically advertise any and all errors linked to the DLP but hide and or over look their own, NOT WORKING.

    The S&P on July 17th downgraded Barbados to junk bond status. This was MAJOR NEWS due to Arthur and the BLP. Immediately after announcement of the S&P downgrade Arthur went about ranting and raving CALL ELECTION!!! “let us get this behind us [the election] and let all the fundamental decisions that must be made about the countries future be made in a period of calm and seriousness rather than in a period of electorial frenzy”. Arthur seems to think that Barbados needs him only him to survive in light of fact, he’s a drunk, inept and corrupt. Bajans did not deserve David Thompson and don’t deserve Owen Arthur. Arthur, during a budget debate could not remember that he actually chaired the meetings of Cabinet discussing the VECO matter. He said he wished he was there. But when told by both Minister Sinckler and the Prime Minister – ‘no Owen, you were there,’ he then said that he said something else. When pressed again, he again said something completely different and also said that he never said what he said on the two previous occasions the entire country heard him say it. Owen had apparently had hit upon a drinking binge.

    Arthur and those BLP folks though really can put on a good clown show and get laughs. The DLP government according to Arthur has a moral responsibility to fix CLICO. He, Arthur perhaps forgot that the supervisor of insurance in 2006 issued a Cease and Desist order against CLICO and he, Arthur had knowledge of it. He, Arthur alike David Thompson allowed the CLICO disaster. Interesting, Arthur and the BLP are now the fix it folks. They will fix CLICO. They will fix it. They will fix the economy. They will fix it. They will fix the national debt. They will fix it.

    Let that dog lie dead, Owen Arthur.

  10. PLANTATION DEEDS FROM 1926-2012 AND SEE MASSIVE FRAUD ,LAND TAX BILLS AND NO DEEDS

  11. LOOK

    Both the BLP and DLP are tainted by mountains of mess – the BLP mess mountains though are much more immense and overly embarrassing than those of the DLP. They, all BLP members could and should sit at dinner table, pass it all around, their own non-tasting food:

    Massive Land Theft

    Contractor Al Barrack

    VECO Corporation,

    Nigerian Water Heater Project, 2.4 Million dollar loss

    Three (3) S&P Downgrades

    Arch Cot, Britton Hill

    75,000 Campaign Cheque

    Copyright Theft

  12. justice

    the high level of corruption that went on in the BLP i dont no how on God earth right thinking bajans could put them back ,we need a new party that can seriously bring all of these person to justice and charge them all it is so sad in barbados that one day God will shake this country that they will be no place for them to hide all the money.

  13. LOOK

    Violet Beckles/heirs owns the land, almost all of Barbados. They, Violet Beckles/heirs are victims of MASSIVE LAND THEFT. The BLP government took from Violet Beckles/heirs proving they are corrupt; they took posession of the land belonging to Violet Beckles/heirs though they Violet Beckles/heirs had/has land deeds and a will. This is really rather embarrassing.

    Owen Arthur via the December 2007 You Tube Video declares he’s an honest man. His attempt does not mention the 75,000 campaign cheque linked to his personal banking account. This is embarrassing, really it is.
    Veco is another BLP mess mountain and rather embarrasing. Owen Arthur, Mia Mottley and Dale Marshall gave the VECO Corporation (Alaska) a government contract without tender. VECO built the prison at Dodds in St. Philip but had no record of building prisons and the prison project low and behold extended millions over budget.

    That man, Owen Arthur is a public drunk and embarrassing. Arthur, during a budget debate could not remember that he actually chaired the meetings of Cabinet discussing the VECO matter. He said he wished he was there. But when told by both Minister Sinckler and the Prime Minister – ‘no Owen, you were there,’ he then said that he said something else. When pressed again, he again said something completely different and also said that he never said what he said on the two previous occasions the entire country heard him say it. Either he was drunk, a suffer of Alzheimer’s disease, forgot taking his medication and or both.

    Both the BLP and DLP are tained with mountains of mess. The BLP mess mountains though are more immense and overly embarrassing. Bajans did not deserve David Thompson and don’t deserve Owen Arthur. Let that dog lie dead, Owen Arthur.

    Hope the BLP reads this article and responses.
