Muzzle Kellman!

Phillips: Time for St Lucy MP to step down

The outrage over Minister of Housing Denis Kellman’s recent social media post continues, with the man seeking to replace him as Member of Parliament for St Lucy describing it as a “joke” and “the height of stupidity”.

Commenting on the country’s crumbling road infrastructure, Kellman posted on his Facebook page early on New Year’s Day: “Can Potholes save lives?”

Peter Phillips

The post provoked the ire of an already frustrated Barbadian public, angry about the number of potholes on the country’s roads, many of which are blamed for accidents and damage to vehicles.

Now, Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) St Lucy hopeful Peter Phillips has joined the band of critics, suggesting Kellman was senseless.

“It is time that Denis Kellman step down . . . .That is the biggest joke that I’ve seen or heard from any person who has a single modicum of common sense put forward,” Phillips told .Barbados TODAY

“It is the height of stupidity really. If you look at potholes –– and they are plenty potholes all over the consistency –– sometimes you wonder if you are going through a cart road in some instances.”

The BLP candidate also lashed out at Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and members of the ruling Democratic Labour Party for their silence on the post.

“The Prime Minister will not condemn the minister for making such a stupid statement. So when a person who is supposed to be a minister of the Crown and representative of the people can make such a stupid statement, we wonder what has Barbados come to in terms of Government and people in Government,” Phillips added.

The Opposition candidate also took a jab at the administration’s road maintenance programme, describing it as “reprehensible”.

And with eyes on the next general election constitutionally due next year, Phillips led a relentless attack on his opponent, insisting constituents could no longer have “some person of that nature representing people anymore”.

He referred to a previous Facebook post for which Kellman had been roundly condemned, accusing the Government parliamentarian of making a joke of a serious matter.

In the video posted last month amidst water shortages in several parishes, a shirtless Kellman was seen “about to drink my fourth glass of water”, while boasting of the quality of the water flowing through the taps here.

“We should be proud that to have country Barbados where we can get water that we can go to the tap, take a glass and drink it. That was not a myth. That is a fact,” Kellman said after having a drink of water.

Phillips suggested it was typical of Kellman to engage in behaviour patterns that fly in the face of suffering Barbadians.

“[He was] making a joke of what the people in his consistency have been suffering with for about a year or so,” the BLP hopeful complained.

    There are times when all of you politicians and would be politicians spew drivel, and this is clearly the case with both of you here.You really saw it fit to respond this? I do believe that it is time for Dennis Kellman to just shut up at times,but to me this entire saga is not at all news worthy and for a politician hopeful to make an issue out of this for the sake of scoring some cheap points it just as ridiculous as the attention given to Kellman.

    • harry turnover January 4, 2017 at 7:12 am

      Exactly…just IGNORE the IDIOT…next time he comes with any attention grabbing stunt just leave him to himself and he will not be able to have the luxury of reading about himself.

    A Leopard can’t change his spots. Put paint on, it’s still a Leopard. You all expect kellman to change? The answer is no. He has SMS. So leave Kelly to drown in his own stew.

    this reminds me of a former minister of transport and works when they had a pothole competition in the papers, the minister instead of issuing orders to patch the holes joined in the competition, when election was called you know the rest, and he represented the BLP at the time, elections coming would not solve this or other problems its a human thing we need divine intervention

  11. jrsmith January 4, 2017 at 9:35 am

    Fruendel will NEVER even tell Kellman anything. He frighten for all of DEM. Kellman love the attention he is getting. He says things that don’t make any sense because he knows Bajans will react. He lavishes in that publicity. The man smart or what?

    @Sherlock Holmes you are truly senseless and clownish. Why should only the idi dots around you score political points despite how horrible they treat this country. The DLP is an empty careless and inept party of grabbers.
    Barbadians have been exposed to more sewage and garbage than potable water for almost two years. What is wrong with a canidate who is seeking office replying to an idiot who’s behavior smacks as disrespectful and arrogant. Why don’t you tell them to go and fix the pot holes and buy water tanks instead of leasing from their friends at the expense of tax payers. Barbadians will deal with them as they deserve shortly….

    Bajan Girl,and quite frankly we here on this blog has been constantly exposed to the sewage and garbage spewed by you as often as you try to post something worthwhile reading.You are a first class shill and the sad thing is you do not even know it,you are steeped in your political biases and as always it clouds your better judgement, then again it is impossible for you have any sort of ability to competently judge anything, my bad.
