Liars in our Caribbean leadership

by Peter Binose

Some people lie to get attention. Some lie because they are mentally ill, some lie for narcissistic reason. Some lie because they are pure evil. Others lie to make others think that they are worthy, while some lie to mislead, confuse and deceive. Another group lies to avoid the expected punishment.   

I believe that several of our Caribbean leaders are serial liars, and they lie for all the above reasons.

Those who speak lies often write lies and should not be trusted in law courts to give truthful evidence. They should not be trusted to draw wills, contracts or agreements of any kind. In fact their profession should never be in a position of trust.

This might sound strange but in fact a large percentage of people that lie, they lie initially to themselves, even believe the lies just because they are too afraid to face the truth.

Many psychological researchers have proven that people who lie to themselves tend to believe the lies later on, and then convince others that the lie is the truth.  Continue reading

Peter Binose: Politicians, political bullies and other cowards

Rubbish Caribbean Politicians and Marxist Pretenders!

by Peter Binose

Politicians who are haters, political bullies and distributors of malice and spite are always cowards.

They like to pick on small sections of society, little groups and little people. They know that little and disorganised people can be no threat to them so they are able to administer hatred, spite and malice without it affecting very much their support during the election process.

And in any case they can always re-buy them with a few trinkets at a later date, even on the very morning of an election.

Now I actually believe that the current leadership and the people who they insult and treat with absolute scorn and disdain fall into those very categories. What we can be sure of is that all our silences in the face of assault are acts of complicity. Its the very kind of acceptance that brought about the slavery of our forefathers.

Politicians who think with their epidermis or their genitalia, or their ruling class ancestry or clan and family, entitle them to be our masters – are the problem we should not tolerate.

One does not banish this spectre of bad behaviour by invoking it ourselves. If we would not vote against someone on the grounds of ‘race’ or ‘gender’ alone, then by the exact same token we would not cast a vote in their favour for the identical reason.

Yet see how this obvious question makes fairly intelligent Vincentian people say the most alarmingly stupid things and act in the most ignorant ways. If we are willing to accept scum behaviour from scum politicians perhaps we deserve to be ground under the boot of these political bullies. Continue reading

Peter Wickham: Push pollster? Fraudster? Grenada election tests Wickham’s credibility

Peter_Wickham CADRES

Commentary claims some are labeling Peter Wickham a ‘Push Pollster’

“A push poll is an interactive marketing technique, most commonly employed during political campaigning, in which an individual or organisation attempts to influence or alter the view of respondents under the guise of conducting a poll.

In a push poll, large numbers of respondents are contacted, and little or no effort is made to collect and analyze response data. Instead, the push poll is a form of telemarketing-based propaganda and rumour mongering, masquerading as a poll.

Push polls may rely on innuendo or knowledge gleaned from opposition research on an opponent. They are generally viewed as a form of negative campaigning. This tactic is commonly considered to undermine the democratic process as false or misleading information is provided about candidates.”

D No Spin Zone: “What is wrong with this breed of Caribbean leaders today…?”

Welcome to the Caribbean no spin zone…

“Every damn time someone criticise them they threaten to sue and run to the courts to shut people up and stiffle political discourse in the country. If someone accuse them of some wrongdoing, what happen to a good old fashion rebuttal? No, not our leaders today. The court is now their weapon and sue their main woman. Hope she vote for them to when election time comes around.”
