PM Stuart rages at Opposition

by George Alleyne

A fiery Prime Minister Freundel Stuart today labelled the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) members as ‘spineless’ while describing Opposition candidate for Christ Church West, Dr William Duguid, as a ‘political renegade’ and hypocrite.

Addressing party supporters at the Christ Church West’s annual luncheon at Almond Bay, Stuart blasted Opposition MPs who joined party leader Mia Mottley, in abstaining from a vote in Parliament last Tuesday to amend the Constitution to move the retirement age of the Auditor General and the Director of Public Prosecutions from 62 to 67.

Stuart said his Government had nothing to lose in the defeated vote that killed the Constitution (amendment) Bill 2016, “but it will stand there as a monument to the spinelessness of people like Kerrie Symmonds, and Edmund Hinkson, and Ronald Toppin, and Jeffrey Bostick, and Gline Clarke”.

Including Mottley in his vitriol, he said, “she was able on Tuesday in the House of Assembly to get the people whom she leads to follow her into abstaining from a vote to clean up a mess that she created.

“A collection of spineless men – they have spines but they had them on mortgage to Mia Mottley, they were not carrying them at the time.

“If they wanted to be real men they would have to borrow their spines from her, but she has them on mortgage, and therefore they could not vote against her will … so when she says jump, they have to ask how high”.

He added, “Their spinal cords were with her, and they could only be men, if they borrow back their spines from her in order to put on the appearance of men”.

He said that Mottley and other Opposition MPs explained that they abstained from the vote, because, “they didn’t understand that is what it meant. That if only I had talked to her she might have changed her mind”.

But a fuming Stuart said, “I did not come into politics to breastfeed political infants.

“When I joined the Democratic Labour Party in 1969, I didn’t come to change political nappies, I came to embark on the serious task of making the lives of the people of Barbados better”.

The Prime Minister also launched a scathing attack on Dr. William Duguid, the former MP for Christ Church West, who recently returned as the Opposition’s candidate following the expulsion of sitting MP, Dr Maria Agard from the BLP.

Dr Duguid had resigned from politics in 2013, making way for Dr Agard, but now he is back to challenge the DLP’s Verla DePeiza.

Stuart described him as a person, “who had determined that as long as the Barbados Labour Party was not in government, politics was of no value to him, and who ran off to join his family in Canada, but who has now come back, hypocritically, to convince the people of Christ Church West that his love for them was never lost”.

    Mr Dugid will wipe Depiza off the map, with out even trying, his work speaks for it self, he should be the last to call ppl names, because every one of his MPs, except about 4, have done something shady in their 8 yrs of politics that you has a leader saw nothing wrong with, you being on the mercy committee /saying you was hit for six to hear murderers get bail, that is spineless, because you did not have the balls to tell the truth, i am glad she block it, even though it is neither here or there , but just to show you that, you cannot win all the time, go /make a new law that can make it happen, that is what this party is good at

    A PM that have overstay his welcome now chastising the opposition because they took a position not to increase the pension limit for the DPP and the Auditor General.Come these men just prevent many workers in the government service from receiving a pension but here he castigating the opposition.These said men just had their ten percent so called salary cut returned to them and they are here crying foul.Mr PM you are wrong but Barbadians I said wake up here because you all see the hardship these men cause the people of Barbados and are living large.Never again these bunch of wild boys as Owen Arthur called them should rule over us again.Come 2018 or when ever let us show them who has the power.

      Because you mentioned Owen Arthur, I will state this, he Owen also chastised the opposition for not voting for it, stating that when the Blp was in power, they were going about to do the same thing, so it stands to reason that both parties were pushing the same subject, the only difference is that the Dlp got it to this stage to implement. So the question is, why did they choose not to do that which they themselves would have done when they were in power ? That appears to have had Owen angry with the Blp for refusing to vote for it, for the sake of doing it.

Barbados’ worst and most duncy PM. You are the only PM since independence that is unqualified to speak to your country on economic matters,no wonder we are at this stage and who addresses Barbadians at 12.30 am in a budget debate when 98% of taxpayers are asleep. If you people doubt me just watch the next budget debate,a waste of a PM.

    Some of these comments are exactly what the PM is speaking of …Mr King wrote his opinion on the subject matter just because he differed from the majority he has a leaning like if the rest of you don’t have one …when the former pm Owen criticized her no one here cussed him he admitted it was them who were the creators of the problem now they don’t want to correct that same problem ….in short they should have been called spineless hypocrites

    Someone needs to tell you that PEOPLE can be DISRESPECTFUL by ACTION or WORDS and the PEOPLE of BARBADOS HAVE BEEN DISRESPECTED BY THE ACTION AND WORDS OF DEM….so wha you trying to say with your RHETORIC ?
    The EAGER X1 disrespected the PM and he ONLY threatened to do this and that….and in the end he did NUTTEN…….that was SPINELESS to a T.
    MINISTERS in HIS CABINET have been doing as they like….and he en doing NUTTEN….SPINELESS…..the PM instructed those laying off workers that the last in first out policy and that no two persons from the SAME household should be laid off…when they did the opposite….that was DISRESPECT to HIS OFFICE…….and he did NUTTEN…….SPINELESS to a T… AGAIN !!
    The PM only vex because his motion was defeated or maybe that he felt that only he can be spineless.

My only say to him , please Mr, Priminister if you came into politics to make the lives of bajans better, would you take some time out to address our nation on (TV) about the economy , crime , the infrastructure ,also as to why the only people in Barbados is enforced to pay taxes is the local bajan and the biggest ever political fraudulent corruption , the (AUDIT GENERALS ) report…

    It is a sad day when we as Bajans(the collective) look towards politicians and their cronies for moral and other forms of guidance! How can we look towards a PM or the clergy for guidance when about 50% of the intended audience will dismiss what is said due to their party/political or other leanings. We don’t or never buy(comprehend or understand) what the “other” party is saying whether truthful, factual or otherwise.

    We all went to school and can read and write, not so sure about comprehend or understand given the crap i see written on these pages. Therefore why do we forsake the Christian God for guidance when we are so sure that human kind will and have failed us. Amazingly many of us attribute to our Christian God the trait of “All Knowing & all Powerful”, but still willfully ignore any or the majority of the commands and instructions that he has given to us in the Bible.

    No wonder we suffer and complain about what our fellow man has and continues to do. In a sad way “we like it so”. We like to complain and cuss; and put our trust in the political cronies and leaders that we know will let us down..

    In conclusion we are telling our Christian God, I(we) know you have the better plan and want the best for us; but until i am on my dying bed with some terminal illness you will have to play second fiddle to your own creation machinations at governing. In other words God “the all powerful and all knowing” go f…. off.

    Reject the Bible and God and have the pleasure of enduring suffering. Sound like a great offer? Not to me though.

    Mr. Stuart please answer the following:

    (a) where was the Opposition in 2004 when this “mess” was created? Did they not realise that it was being created and seek to draw it to the attention of the then Government as any good opposition would do?

    (b) why are you blaming Ms. Mottley. You should ask Owen Arthur, who was the Prime Minister at the time, why he did not instruct that the matter be dealt with? He, like you, chaired cabinet, so ultimately he must take responsibility for any “mess” that was created, just as you are responsible for the “mess” that Barbados has become since 2008.

Now, rather than realizing fully that the DLP and BLP are – in essence – the same rubbish on stilts – you go and are seen in defence of the BLP parliamentary opposition?
