Pity them, says PM Stuart

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart last evening said that people who have opted not to celebrate Barbados’ 50th golden jubilee anniversary of Independence are to be pitied.

Stuart made the remarks at the Christ Church Foundation School after artist Corol Bernadine presented him with a portrait of himself as she launched an exhibition of her paintings reflecting 50 years of Independence.

In an obvious reference to Opposition Barbados Labour Party members who have declared that they will not be celebrating the occasion because they were unhappy with the state of the nation, including the prolonged lack of running water affecting a number of parishes, Stuart said there was much for which to give thanks.

“Celebration starts with thanksgiving, and looking back over the last 50 years, I can see quite a lot to be thankful to God for, and to be thankful to the people of Barbados for”.

The Prime Minister added, “those people who were not interested in celebrating obviously do not see anything to be thankful for. We must not be angry with them.

“We must just feel sorry for them because, it means that somehow their souls have been enveloped in a kind of darkness from which I think they need to be rescued.”

Stressing that he was in a celebratory mode, Stuart said, “that is why I feel able to lead that movement for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Barbados’ independence”.

      The fact he does not care is what strikes me as really brutal. His words are words no one should ever hear from a PM. To see he does not have interest in wanting to deal with those who are not celebrating and are unhappy shows what a callous, cold hearted person he is, one who should never have been eligible for a position of PM. He is obviously only there to give he and his family a high living.

    I love my country, but for the first time in my life I no longer feel proud of it. No need to go into all the reasons here. Just take a leisurely Sunday afternoon drive from north to south or east to west.

    I will celebrate our achievements as a nation, but I will certainly not be celebrating this failed government led by Freundel Stuart. Call me a yard fowl if you wish, but I know in my heart that we can do a lot better. I saw this country grow from a colonial backwater to the leading developing country in the world and I was so very proud of our people and governments over the years.

    I pity Mr. Stuart actually, for his legacy will be the ruination of all that we had achieved.

    I will not be around for our Centennial celebrations. I can only hope and pray that we get back on the right track and do my little part to take that first step.

        Why … just because he states that our Government has failed miserable … oh, sorry, I forgot how autocratic things have become (in our Govt and Country) as in if you’re not for something then your against it. Criticism – constructive or otherwise – is not tolerated.

        Independence now seems to mean authoritarian rule and any opposition/difference of opinion regardless of its authenticity is deemed offensive if not worse. Sounds a lot like the days before 1966.

I threaten the very Barbadian spirit nurtured by our former leaders through education, garbage collection is now a thing to cause excitement rather than a norm and I can go on and on, but I am thankful also, thankful because as an undecided voter I now know I cannot trust the DLP again with my future nor the country’s future because they have messed up and keep messing up, they have to be stopped. I’m pitiful yes but not toward the Bees I have to pity myself and all the others like me who struggle to survive these harsh times.

    It’s a pity the Citizens put their faith in you and your cartoon characters colleagues broken promises.
    It’s a Pity you’re the worst Prime Minister of Barbados.
    It’s a Pity that you’re incapable of implementing any policies or make decisions to benefit the Citizens and Barbados.
    It’s a Pity ‘Heknows nothing’ until he is HIT for six.
    It’s a Pity the entire government is incompetent.
    It’s a Pity wunna ain’t got no Pride.
    The only soul enveloped in darkness is yours Freundel cause you always sleeping.
    You’re correct Freundel, Barbados need rescuing from you, your selective hearing and long talk before you sink the island.

They are too many issues going on in this island. And even though we made it to 50 years of nationhood I believe with this government we really haven’t seen anything to “celebrate” .

So please enjoy it while it lasts, don’t waste your final days with juvenile distractions, E.g. Morality, not supporting the celebrations etc. The majority will not be deceived this time like before, personally I had little care for politics before but was motivated to show an interest by the callous actions and condescending tone of this party. Just imagine putting an obvious additional tax on the population and trying to convince them that it isn’t because you are giving it another name, this is insulting.

    This is a sad tale but 50 years later they are still against independence. I wasnt there 50 years ago on that historical moment no guarantees about 50 years later. Therefore I will sieze the moment and celebrate. Yes pity those who would mislead and try to kill nationalism and a sense of pride in this country. We have been blessed in more ways than one. Thank God for 50 years

    Celebration? I think the celedrations is for the rich and famous
    There is no patriotism in this country where you have so many different National Colours this does not call for a celebration it calls for a boycot Next thing we the Soldiers that took part in the Flag Raising Ceremony on night of NOVEMBER 29th 1966, and them on morning of DECEMBER 1st 1966 at the state opening of Parliament should be asked to take a part of the event they call 50th Celebration of Independence no
    we are forgotten old bags cast away as garbage

    Lawd wunna well cuss the PM nuh ,he was wrong for saying those words, but any way we all going come together and celebrate. This is our country and we all are thankful in some way. Stop looking at the negative side and realized that a lot of money and businesses will benefit from the celebrations. A lot of people from all over the world will be visiting so thats business. Appreciate it

    Is the issue of celebration of about what happen this year or last year…. It’s about 50 years of independence…. If this occasion had occurred three years ago complaints would have been about paying barrack or the Alexandra issue… It’s not about the current pm fate just have it that he is in the chair at this time…. We boast of being 99% literate but based on what I read here we are far from…..I can’t wait for a change of government because all our problems will be solved by the coming messiah… Sorry Mia…. Tourist will flock here because of her…. Our water problems will cease because of her… employment will shrink because of her… We will have a perfect Barbados because of her…. Wait a minute did the prison not burn under her watch…. Was edutech not under her watch…. Did she not return to Barbados saying a fishing agreement had been reach….. Barbados a fools paradise

    I just want to thank the members of the opposition,for their honesty in telling the people of this nation that in all the years they spent as leaders in government,,,that they did NOTHING that is worthy of celebration…There is hope for you yet,,as we understand how hard it must have been,for you to finally admit this.

    He is mighty and has been elevated above all people. This guy is the most condescending and arrogant clown who ever lead any country any where in the world. They have allowed our country to be downgraded affecting foreign investment. They have allowed pile ups of garbage to justify private contracts for obvious reasons and so with the water. He sits and allows the leasing of water tanks where the monthly lease is almost the same as purchasing a tank and everything has been done to stagnate our economy whilst the fat cats grow oversize and our people suffer in the process. The few who getting a few pennies will come here and try to justify the ignorance of an inept government but Bajans seem to be surely waking up. Every time he opens his mouth he insults the intelligence of our people..

    We are thankful for our independance and the progressed that has been made over the years, but unfortunately in these latter times it looks like we are moving backwards in many ways. We need to be reawakened before it is too late.

    Even if you shoot the reason into his brain that those who are not celebrating are not against the celebrations, he would still not understand. For him, his legacy must be established and he is ensuring that is. By the way thought, anyone has an idea what his legacy is?
