Arthur forgot where he came from, says Stuart

Former Prime Minister Owen Arthur has come in for a blistering tongue lashing from Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, who contends that he betrayed his working-class roots when he handed reins of Barbados’ oldest political party to Mia Mottley.

Stuart charged that Arthur, who has often referenced his humble beginnings as the son of shopkeepers, did not see it fit to elevate someone from his class of origin but instead handed the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) back to the “elitist influences that have always controlled it.”

“You got the opportunity to lead the BLP in 1993 and ran it for 15 years,” Stuart said in an address geared at rallying the base of the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) during the Opening Gala of the party’s 62nd conference, held at the George Street Auditorium, St Michael on Friday night.

“And this is what I have against you, because after 15 years of leading the Barbados Labour Party, given your origin and the support that went into your foundation, when you were ready to give the Barbados Labour Party you had not brought along anybody from your class to whom you could hand it, you had to hand it back to the conservatives.

“I said to him, as far as I am concerned, that is a blotch on your record, on the other hand ” said Stuart, who was recounting a private conversation he had with Arthur on the subject.

Stuart added that since Arthur had failed to protect the BLP and by extension the country from exclusionary and elitist politics, the burden was now on him [Stuart] to shield Barbados.

“Arthur didn’t correct it so it falls on me to correct it because in keeping with the theme for our conference I have to put Barbados first. I am not ashamed to be a Bajan and I do not believe that the best interest of Barbados will be served or can be served allowing an arch-conservative in the Barbados Labour Party to preside over the destiny of working class men and women in this country,” Stuart said.

“I have said before that I don’t attack people in politics, I explain them and the time is coming not too long from now when I would have a chance to do that explanation. I said then and I would say tonight, attacks don’t really last. People will have a good time and laugh but the effects don’t really last.

However, an explanation on the other hand, last and somebody has to put him or herself through the trouble to explain the present leader of the Barbados Labour Party to Barbadians and I am going to do it,” Stuart said to an eruption of applause from the auditorium.

    Wow. you should have been on the recent comedy show. Even though I have lost all respect for Owen Arthur five years you Mr. Stuart should be the last person that should talk about someone forgetting where they came from. You more than any other leader have shown by your actions that you have forgotten where you came from. You treat the people especially the working class people like you are above them. You don’t mingle with ordinary Barbadians, you don’t speak to ordinary Barbadian. You are chauffeured from St Philip to Bay Street, then to Illaro Court for lunch and then in the evening, you are chauffeured back to St. Philip without a thought or care for ordinary Barbadians. The only people you seem to think you have a right to speak to is a bunch of yard-fowls in George Street.

Barrow used to drive about in his Volkswagen car and Stuart is not worthy of carrying Barrow`s brief case as far as running the country. When he is voted out are you going to be his chauffeur? he has become so accustom of being driven, I want to see how he is going to get around.

    Mr Stuart, and i am not going to refer to you as prime minister because in my opinion you were never prime minister of Barbados.
    The DLP over the years has always bragged that they were for the poor Black man & the BLP was for the White Merchants of Barbados.
    In 2017 i can see that the DLP is more in bed with the White Merchants than ever before in the history of Barbados.

    What a laugh! The problem is not Arthur the problem is you,and your horrible government .
    Under the B.L.P government I worked for less and got more, now people are working for more and are getting less.
    So to my mind Mr.Arthur is a boss, may be you should sit down and have a talk with him,and find out how to run this country instead of trying to discredit a man,who had done more for the poor than you and your heartless government.

    Just look at this PM who have the audacity to even mention Owen Seymour Arthur name.
    What we have here is a man that has forgotten the history of his party post Errol Barrow.
    This clown cannot even walk in the shadow of Errol Barrow, Tom Adams, Bernard St John, Erskine Sandiford or David Thompson who have all distinguished themselves as leaders.
    He definitely shouldn’t be referencing Owen Arthur since they represent polar opposites, one being the most successful Prime Minister since independence and Stuart being the most dismal failure as a leader ever in the history of this country but we shouldn’t be sidetracked because this is definitely not about Arthur but about the fear that is permeating Belleville that is represented in Mia Mottley.
    Fraundel and his bunch of idlers are all pissing their collective pants as their time has virtually ran out and they know that the electorate will not be fooled this time and intend to put every single one of them on the bread line .
    Attacking Owen Arthur is simply to drive a wedge between what they think are different factions in the BLP but that divide and conquer method will fail just like every initiative that this administration has implemented to rescue this country from the chaotic predicament that they have put us in.

    The below is a copy of a recent Facebook post by me on ultimate buffoonery of the woman.

    Some of you people on here really deluding yourself that Mottley is national leadership material.

    No wonder the said Arthur in 2014 reportedly remarked that, this most intellectually and politically backward, bankrupt, decrepit and discredited of local parties – the BLP – has lost its soul and its way.

    ———————————————————————————————————

    Imagine the BLP Leader has been reported as labelling CARIFESTA “CARIFIASCO” at a BLP St. Michael South Central branch meeting yesterday!!

    Assuming that that was really what was said by her, it could only have been a very inept way of using language to remind many Barbadians that, when she – Mottley – had been a member of the Cabinet from 1994 to 2008, she presided over so many fiascoes involving millions upon millions of dollars and credits having been squandered by those managing the projects.

    A few of these were:

    1) The Greenland Landfill – where millions of dollars and credits were squandered and not a shred of garbage was dumped in it;

    2) The GEMS scandal – where millions upon millions in dollars and credits were squandered on giving receipts to many persons who where involved in running those properties at least one of which had BLP connections;

    3) The EDUTECH scandal – another project of which realized millions upon millions of dollars and credits having been squandered right under the nose of the then Minister of Education – who was Mottley for a time – and beyond her.

    4) The NHC Warrrens Office Complex – another disgraceful saga – in which, again, millions upon millions of dolllars and credits were also squandered by the then BLP government.

    So, what a HUGE FIASCO she is herself to have suggested that CARIFESTA was a fiasco when clearly it was not.

      Mottley and the BLP are certainly not innocent. They can be hail as saviours and still be relegated for operating like serpents. They got a lot to answer for, and so is the wicked DLP. This is reason why Barbadians should go for an alternative party because voting for an alternative cannot be any worst than voting for BLP or DLP. Both have proven over the years to be interested only in what they can get for themselves. What in the DLP would convince you or any of the other supporters that they are the party to vote back in again?

I thought members of the party elected their leader. Secondly: so the current leader of the BLP is elitist (let’s forget her brilliant mind and forward-looking ideas); how working class was Barrow, Tom Adams, Bernard St. John – and farther field, Nelson Mandela?

Barbados is presently experiencing a high level of gun related crimes, where young men are both victims as well as perpetrators and yet our Prime Minister broke his slumber to attack former PM Rt Hon Owen Arthur and making promises to explain present leader of the opposition Hon Mia Amor Mottley. I think The Right Hon Freundel Stuart should explain himself and his incompetent government of nine years that have lead Barbados into a state of economic, social and political chaos.

If Gear Box or King Dyal come back from their graves the people will gladly accept them to run the Country before they reelect the DLP under Stewart.

So sir, we don’t want to hear anything you have to say about a private conversation you had with Arthur which is seriously irrelevant at this moment (smoke screen). BOTH of you have failed this country. Both of you are responsible for its current state and both of you need to really do Barbados a favor and help us find those who are passionate to create change not just those who want to boost their own self interest.

    PM the best leader is one who has a clear vision for Barbados that uplifts all. Upper class or lower is inconsequential so don’t make me laugh.

    A clear vision where it is a given that feeding ourselves should be number 1. When you can feed yourself any number can play ’cause you do not have to bow. Check Genesis 42, v 6.

    Furthermore a leader understands the importance of constructive criticism. Under their stewardship things may go wrong but they can bounce back because they know how to get others to buy in to the plan going forward. Of course they usually lead by example but that is not happening.

    We SINKING. Stop blaming global this and that.

    Both parties have been guilty of doing such since day 1 and all 2 like dealing with Barbados’ business at the party level or over and away. (Failing grade for that)

    New blood bring it on and up de ting.

    Mottley corn beef and biscuit politics created in Bridgetown by Deighton and perfectcted by her in her constituency is the BLP strategy for governing. Bajans like it so. 🙂

    Be careful folks….they are some Bajans who would go out there and surprise us at the polls despite the foolishness these people doing. People still voting on the loyalties of foreparents that dead and gone, despite what they are seeing right in front their eyes. Let us not be distracted by his verbal diarrhea but remain focused.

    Our dearly beloved decent , well brought up christian priminster did comment on not knowing his party was and still is holding the wrong end of the bull………………. This must be the worlds first political party, who was in power for 2 terms has a list of things to do , one to a hundred and haven’t ticked any boxes …….
    Would some one try contacting him and find out , what plans he has to get barbados moving again………………………………….
    I am very worried our bajan people , have nothing to challenge him and his non productive ministers with and we cant remove them until the up coming general elections , our politicians are out of control……….We need to stop them we have had enough political pain ….. What do we do………………………

    When last i checked, Owen Arthur will not be running in the next election. What i would like you to do is call the elections and let us start to rebuild what you have torn down.

    Get rid of those 2 Mercedes benz and allow Barbadians overseas who have money in BGI to have access to their money. Did you use all the FOREX to buy those 2 high end autos? Those cars are built for speed. Which highway are you driving them on?

    Prime Minister Freundel Stewart Said :-
    “Stuart charged that Arthur, who has often referenced his humble beginnings as the son of shopkeepers, did not see it fit to elevate someone from his class of origin but instead handed the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) back to the “elitist influences that have always controlled it.”

    My First Problem with this part of His Statement is this.
    “He did not see it fit to elevate someone from his class of origin”

    Here it seems to be his Contention/Belief/acceptance, that there is still a Huge Class Structure in Barbados, irregardless of the Fact that we have spent Billions of Dollars so far Educating our People.

    My second Problem with his SAtatement, is that he is showing that he Knows SQUAT about the Mottley Family, as there was NOTHING about That family that would make them “Elitest” as they came into prominence, Because of a Grandfater who with some help, worked himself into position from the LOWEST of the Low, but saw to it that his Offspring got the best Educational Opportunities available at that time.
    I know this how ???, because my Grandmother, helped him up.

    When, How, Why??? i wont tell.
    But he definitely was not an Elitist, and fought Tooth and Nail for EVERYTHGING that he Got, regardless of how he Got It.

    I Mia Mottley can be called an Elitist, the You Sir, and Mr .Arthur can also be called such, as you are all cam cut from the SAME Cloth.
