Do your job, Mottley tells Kellman

Leader of the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Mia Mottley has called on the Minister responsible for Housing Denis Kellman to spend more time doing his job and less time on call-in programmes.

“If he was spending less time on the call-in programmes and in Moon Town he would know that somebody needs to be held for this massive wastage of money and those persons should perhaps be spending time at Dodds rather than walking around Barbados freely today,” Mottley said.

The BLP Leader was making reference to the unoccupied lots at the Parish Land Development in St Philip.

Speaking to a group of journalists in the area on Saturday during a BLP ‘rubbing shoulders’ event, Mottley highlighted how the housing project which was launched in 2010 was left to rot and decay seven years later.

“You cannot have houses shut up for five years, six years and expect that people can find these houses functional,” she said.

“This Parish Land Development was about contracts, it was not about the supplying of housing. If it was about supplying of housing it would be full of little children, cars and all kinds of people but this was designed to supply contracts before the last election and empty it stands today,” Mottley added.

    People not even interested in your comments. It is a non point. There are more important issues.

      @Saga Boy, you should be given some kind of medal for your patriotism and your blind support of this dysfunctional political party, the “DLP.” Another supporter keeps saying that if or when the BLP takes the reigns people think that things will get better, did the DLP told the people that it would be disastrous to re-elect the BLP and elect them that they would no lay-offs, no privatizing and look what has happened, after 9 years they`re faulting the BLP and the world for their incompetency.

    Cheese-on-bread!!!! I find Saga Boy to be a REAL DEM-FOWL. Just anti Mia, Bitter, Vex and One-sided. She must deal with more important issues; as long as they are not Anti-DLP. Can’t please you.

  9. Lorenzo July 16, 2017 at 6:50 pm

    saga Boy ,along with a few other dem yardfowls like Joan worrell,CCC,Amtoinette Sealy Greengiant,Big Man and a few others don,t want people to criticize their party,the writing on the wall for them.Therefore no more feeding at the trough,hence they are on these blogs every day trying to distract people from the real issues but newsflash it ain,t working.this is a democracy and the people will speak and criticize the Government when necessary.

      Hahaha Barbados Today put the ban in the SSS. Why? They do not like the idea that I am criticizing their bread and butter Mia Mottley

  12. hcalndre July 17, 2017 at 5:34 am

    ltz Queen; Houses for votes? No more corned beef and biscuits, this is big league work, who is the agent?

    Two points here. The former minister who built these house get his “cut” already so it mattered little to him if they were sold. Secondly, it was always the intention of this DLP admin to leverage these houses for votes. Anything that can be done will be attemted in an effort to gain an advantage in this election. Desperate DEMS.

    It’s time the people of St Lucy wake up and vote out KELLMAN. Their is a road going towards the Animal flower cave it need repairing. I don’t HOW the residents and TOURIST drive on that road.

    • Leroy July 17, 2017 at 8:59 am

      Bad roads save lives remember, but onto bigger news as it relates to cutting the deficit and amalgamating state owned enterprises,i think the NHC will need some definition, what is the role of NHC? just to employ people?

  15. Troy July 17, 2017 at 7:04 am

    I honestly don’t know why the people of St. Lucy continue to vote for Mr. Kellman. Up to now they can’t see that he’s only interested in Social Media and the call in programmes. Heads should roll for this wastage of money. And we wonder why Barbados finds its self in such a precarious position today. It’s these illiterates that make poor decision and fatten their own bank accounts while the people of the country continue to murmur but won’t take action. Up de Ting .

  16. F.A. Rudder July 17, 2017 at 11:04 am

    So are you saying Mr Benn that we should go back to local- government days when the lower ministers hated to drive their Hillman Minx and Vauxhall Victors through rough road and would send down to D T W (Department of Tansportation and Works) for quarter inch, marl and asphalt?

  17. Gearbox1964 July 17, 2017 at 11:16 am

    Kellman is a total clown…a clown who doesn’t even know how stupid he sounds everytime he opens his trap.

  18. Sunshine Sunny Shine July 17, 2017 at 1:52 pm

    However, I will say that any idiot that can be reelected every five years got to be an idiot that doing something right, even if that idiot is nothing short of circus clown.

  19. hcalndre July 17, 2017 at 3:48 pm

    Patrick, is edutech responsible for this financial mess that the DLP created.

  20. Saga Boy July 17, 2017 at 4:09 pm

    @hcalndre. Less you forget.
    Mia Mottley, the opposition leader of the Barbados Labour Party, made an appeal with plenty of justifications, why the small 166 square mile 12 Parish island of Barbados should increase its current number of Parliamentarians. This appeal was made at a time when the island is suffering from serious economic problems that have resulted in services being depressed and neglected. It is due, mostly, to the poor management skills of the incumbent deceitful DLP government, and to a large extent, by the policies and poor oversight of government-spending by both political parties.

    One would think that with the momentum in favour of the BLP, this fork tongue speaking silly woman would continue to ride on the wave of DLP nonsense and failures that is causing many to look upon the the opposition leader’s BLP party with renewed interest and wide eyes. But, as per usual, this indifferent, but very intelligent woman (I think) has a tendency to lean towards her alternative self that has landed many of the things she think are good into a lot of harsh criticisms. To present an articulate case for more parliamentarians at a time when bajans are very upset with their parliamentary leaders, especially the highminded Prime Minister shows that the Mottley level of confidence is causing her to not think things through, thoroughly. As a result, Mottley’s proposal was given a deserving tongue lashing, as the assumptions drawn is that she must make a way for her people thus ensuring that they can return to feeding at the Treasury trough after 8 lost years.
