Dems declare ‘war of facts’ on BLP

The battle for the hearts and votes of Barbadians has taken an unusual and aggressive twist, with the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) today declaring a “war of facts” on the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP).

With general elections due within a year, the DLP made no secret that it was moving full throttle in campaign mode with constituency-wide mass canvassing.   

A coach load of party supporters, decked in white tee-shirts displaying the words “DLP FACTS”, and led by General Secretary George Pilgrim, arrived at the constituency office of Member of Parliament for St Michael Central Steve Blackett to herald what Pilgrim called a war of facts against the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP).

Stating that the mission – which began with a mid-year conference on March 4 to expound on Government’s achievements – was now taking a new dimension, Pilgrim told reporters that this morning’s canvassing would be replicated across the country.

“The ‘mis-facts’ that have been circulated, the counter to it that is now surfacing is long overdue. It’s a pity that Brand Barbados has come under attack on social media. But today, we are going to knock on homes, we are going to visit the people and we are going to leave with them the old-fashioned way, the truth on a piece of paper that they can read and digest,” the DLP spokesman said.

DLP General Secretary George Pilgrim (right), Member of Parliament for St Michael Central Steve Blackett (second from right) along with party faithfuls today declared a “war on facts” on the Opposition.

Pilgrim added that the DLP team would touch people, shake hands and listen to the voters, who will decide next year whether or not to give the incumbent a third straight term.

“All of this will be done by human beings, not under some anonymous name online, spreading the gospel according to lies,” he declared to applause from the hand-picked group of supporters, armed with files of paper and gathered at the front the constituency office.

Pilgrim, with Blackett at his side, told reporters the reason for beginning the mission in St Michael Central, which adjoins Opposition Leader Mia Mottley’s St Michael North-East constituency, was to respond to the “mis-truths” told by the Opposition.

He said this month’s FACTS – Flooding All Constituencies with Truths, according to Pilgrim – would tie into a second conference on Sunday at the George Lamming Primary School in Welches, St Michael, which will be addressed by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, Minister of Education Ronald Jones, Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer-Suckoo and Blackett during a three-hour session scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.

“So the FACTS mission has taken a new dimension today, as we take to the streets of Barbados to tell Barbadians about the truth of what is happening in this country,” Pilgrim stressed.

Blackett narrowly held onto the seat in the 2013 general election, defeating the BLP’s Arthur Holder by 39 votes.

In an immediate response to today’s offensive, the BLP ridiculed the ruling party’s efforts, with General Secretary Dr Jerome Walcott contending that pressure from the Opposition had forced the DLP to react in strange ways.

“The pressure of the Barbados Labour Party’s on the road campaign and general canvassing by its team, is forcing the Democratic Labour Party to react in bizarre and unusual fashions,” Walcott stated in a news release.

He said the ruling party had started a “facts propaganda” event, which was “dead on arrival”, even as he took the DLP to task for the “extraordinary step” of streaming today’s canvassing “live” on the state-owned Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

“This was a clear sign of desperation, and confirms the BLP’s position that CBC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DLP party, rather than a Government entity serving the general public,” the BLP official said.

Walcott said the BLP would soon have its say on CBC, an entity that reported a debt of $115 million.

“Instead of being allowed to seek ways to earn money, [CBC] is dragged about and subsumed in the political machinery of the DLP,” he complained, adding that his party would continue its on-the-road and other programmes, “which are being extremely well-received wherever we go”.

      Here is a fact. NOT ONE of these 62 response comments are supportive of the DEMS. This alone should show any smart Barbadian the thinking pattern of the average Barbadian. One Blackett politician said he sees a blood bath coming with blood flowing in the streets. They are using words like “war” and “fight” Is that a threat or a promise? This is how civil unrest starts. I have witnessed it in many countries, including Latin America, Asia, Far Eastern and even in a few Caribbean islands. These remarks and reports sends a signal of instability thus investors stay away. Sent from my roaming device.

    That’s the most idiotic moniker I’ve ever seen.

    While the rest of the world has declared ‘Wars on….’ these fellas have decided to put their own spin on it — not knowing that the semiotic implications will not be as favorable as hoped.

    Spoiler alert: This campaign will always be taken as: ‘War ON Facts’ — as it rightly should be.

    Reel an’ come again, Pilgrim. Anyone worth their salt can successfully use your own campaign against you.

    Are they fighting to build the country or destroyed it. It should not be abouth either party … it about the interest of Barbados. Given the situation both parties should be working toward the best of the country.

    Ladies and gentlemen…

    It is CLEARLY time to “wipe the decks clean”, wash away ALL the BS we have LABOURed under for the last 50 years, and start afresh.

    I propose that at the next election EVERY Bajan taxpayer / voter – yes, I am speaking to you YARD FOWLS too – refuse to vote for ANY “creature” who has been ANY PART OF either the DLP or the BLP.

    Instead, I propose that from this day forward and until the election we encourage the formation and active canvassing of new political Parties to 100% REPLACE what we have now.

    The DLP and BLP are BOTH guilty of the mess we are in now, they no longer represent the people, and are abusing the “Labour” label.

    In my opinion, a 5th Form class of secondary school students could do better than this herd of self-centered braying braying jackasses – on either side of the aisle – so any group which replaces them – all two both of them – MUST be able to do better.

    Yes, they will have a hard time digging the country out from this massive debt, but the alternative is to allow the current perpetrators to continue digging down, for THE FACT IS they know nothing else.

    Fresh faces, across the board. Give those who are interested a chance to show “~ what they can do for their country, not what their country can do for them.” (John F. Kennedy)

    There MUST be a better way – but NOT under these two herds of repulsive greedy animals.

    Are YOU disgusted and fed up with this bare shyte? I am… and I am not afraid to say so.

    Fact – many dlp ministers got fat and arrogant while Barbados is suffering it’s worst period of economic struggle in my lifetime.

    Fact – the DLP promised integrity legislation but never acted on it.. why is that? Why should any minister not be happy to prove that they didn’t illegally profit from our countries suffering?

    Fact – downgrade after downgrade is a DLP thing.. y’all should print it on your stupid shirts and own it.

    Barbados is a wonderful country full of good people – but we have this one huge problem with a long-established culture of corruption and entitlement in politics and government service. International visitors to the Barbados Free Press are usually shocked when they learn that Barbados government officials are not prohibited from accepting gifts of any value—from land developers or companies that receive government contracts.As long as this continue whether it’s DDDD’s, BBBB’s or de Fleeee’s things will be the same. The hotel plantations getting richer and the working poor and non land owners poorer. But, the bucket bottom soon fall out…

    Some of your responses can be entertained, however as I said two months ago in this forum. Everyone of our systems is broken; and none of our lame duck politricians can put humpty dumpty together again, too many legal liars in the house of privileges, and the biggest broken system is religion, because few Barbadians know anything about the true GOD of this Universe, they know about the one given by our colonial slave masters, who exchanged our physical shackles for mental chains!!! We are going around in circles; simply because we cannot solve all these problems, by using the same frequencies they were created with?

    @jrsmith; I love your list of facts. On close examination of those facts, and comparing them with my list of issues dating back some fifteen years ago the several of your facts list are on my issues list.

    I want the people to flash their memory back to the BLP’s last term in office where it was a free for all, sailing like a ship without a rudder. They are the same politicians who were depositing campaign funds into their personal accounts. Remember the same scandalous warrens project didn’t go to tender, the arch hall fire station and crab hill police station projects weren’t tendered either, and the minister was removed in a reshuffle. Then came the edutec scandal of magnitude. Remember the fiasco at Greenland, the cruise ships leased for cricket world cup 2007. If we spend some time checking the facts occurring between 1994 and 2008 we will see that most of these facts are just a continuation from those years.

    As long as we keep going from one circus to the other, we will always get clowns running affairs, while their selected audience laughs at us. I honestly find it quite difficult to understand how you people can openly support either of these two parties. How can you really see a difference between them. You lot must be wearing lenses prescribed by the said parties, as in honesty the difference between them is microscopic.

    This country will heal, we will once again achieve economic growth, but the clowns will again swell the public service, they will forget about the words privatization, production, reduced expenditure, project tendering, financial prudence and all the different important things being mentioned now. If returned to office the BLP like the pirates they are, will rape the ship of it’s spoils, then the voters will hand it over to the DLP who will wreck the ship, place it on dry dock for repairs before it goes back to the BLP again.

    I will ask like babyface did in his song, “how come, how long” will we the voters continue with this circus of actors. Now the opposition has recruited new actors for training, so, once indoctrinated they can continue the play act after act for many years to come. Is this Barbados the country, the society, the economy or simply Bajan Bustop the theater drama series where the actors change, new stories are told, but with the same concept.

      @Greengiant – well said – this people ain’t looking back at anything as their MEMORY CARDS HAVE BEEN WILLFULLY ERASED. They ADORE this MERRY-GO-ROUND $hit as the music plays. But this LAST election of the Bees should do it for BIM.
      @tsquires – I am one of the TRUE AWAKENED ONES (John crying in the wilderness). Those LAME duck politicians wings have been CLIPPED LONG AGO. The mental chains and the removing of the GOD of Jacob is the problem here in EGYPT land. You will also know that time is very SHORT and closing in too. This going around IN CIRCLES IS JUST LIKE IN THE WILDERNESS BACK THEN.
