Gill calls on Mia to present document now

Former Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate David Gill is calling on the Mia Mottley-led Opposition party to clearly tell the Barbadian electorate how it intends to run the country if it wins the next election, constitutionally due by the middle of next year.

“I am calling on the Leader of the Opposition at this week’s conference to lay out the plan for Barbados, being the official Opposition,” he told a United Progressive Party (UPP) meeting at Quakers Road ahead of the BLP’s 79th annual conference, which opens on Friday at the Queen’s Park Steel Shed.

“We do not want any bribery manifesto. That’s what they call it when you put a manifesto that they know they cannot deliver the goods. You refer to them as bribery manifestos in political language where you put out a manifesto that professes what it does not possess,” Gill added.

David Gill and Mia Mottley

Pointing out that British prime minister Theresa May, United Kingdom opposition leader Jeremy Corbin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had all published their party’s manifestos prior to facing the electorate in recent polls, Gill was insistent that Mottley should not wait until the election bell rings to cue the electorate in on her plans.

In fact, he suggested that the party should produce its elections manifesto during this weekend’s conference, while urging Barbadians to demand as much.

“Don’t wait on any manifesto that come out a week before and you have too much trouble reading three and four manifestos,” said Gill, who quit the BLP last year after losing the battle to carry its banner for the fifth time in St Michael South Central and has since thrown his support behind the newly-formed UPP.

And even though the UPP is yet to release its own manifesto, Gill was adamant that the BLP owed the electorate as much.

“We are calling tonight on the Barbados Labour Party at the conference this weekend to lay out [plans],” he told the small UPP gathering, adding that “anybody who comes to you from the Barbados Labour Party
. . . after the conference should be able to tell you what the plan is”.

    Dr. Jerome Walcott was recently reported as having said somewhere that the BLP’s policies will come in their Manifesto.

    What pathetic ignorance!!

    David Gill is correct in calling for Mottley to provide some details of the plan its has for helping to run this country, at its Annual Conference this weekend.

    But did not she do such at last year’s Annual Conference?? Where are the very farical ideas she put out there? Where??

    How could David Gill call for something that his party has not fulfilled. When he called for the BLP to produce a manifesto , he himself should have been holding his party’s manifesto in hand while doing so. Come on Gilly!

    For a minute I thought he was asking Mia to produce that document on her law practice or her ability to practice law. Boy that snot rag.

    • michael austin October 26, 2017 at 6:42 am

      Reading the headline,Jenny I thought so too.Gill is a rejected,dejected old man vexed that a young woman dun wid he.
      Gill ya is a LOSER and women doan want LOSERS.Three times he failed to rise to the occasion and he wanted a fourth chance…to do what Gilly ? to see if you could brek the sequence ?

    You tell her Gilly.
    And tell her send to London,and get an official certified copy of her long awaited Law Degree from the London School of Economics, and produce it.
    We need this matter settled once and for all Do not be a phantom lawyer…please! Or a jailhouse lawyer.
    Every Professional in Barbados has to show their qualifications to be registered.
    Why should anyone be allowed to slip through the crack. Produce the darn document!

    • Randolph October 26, 2017 at 7:58 am

      Archly Perch,what foolishness.What about Dennis Lowe is he really a Dr.?People suffering and you talking a load of crap.

      • hcalndre October 26, 2017 at 8:31 pm

    If she ain’t got it then she is a fraud. If she was a doctor practicing without the requisite qualifications she would be charged. What is so special about her?

    • hcalndre October 26, 2017 at 8:40 pm

      @Saga Boy: Do you know how many of those barbados qualified lawyers would be in jail if they were in NY., I know of one who went to jail and one who ran back, but in barbados they are untouchable because of their coterie.

  31. MARIA Holder October 26, 2017 at 6:32 am

    Mia is a born and bred Bajan. We have a certain Doctor here – non Barbadian – that is yet to produce his credentials – a convicted Abuser – Why wunna don’t harass the DLP to deal with him?

  32. E Jerome Davis

    Mr Gill, it is not too late to admit that you made a bad decision out of disappointment. If you are half the man you claim to be, you would fess up and ask for forgiveness, and return to the fold.

  33. Bajan October 26, 2017 at 6:48 am

    The government has not been able to live up to its own Manifesto and promises. They found Barbados in a good position 10 years ago, bragged after the first 5 years that Barbados has never been in a better economic position and now they are blaming everybody and everything for their disastrous management of the country. You arrogant fools have pushed Barbados back into the 50s. WE shall NEVER FORGET!

  34. andy g October 26, 2017 at 7:28 am

    ohooooooooo. lots of fun reading the ites. shut the up david ,shut them up.

  35. Harry October 26, 2017 at 7:39 am

    David I’ve known for a long time but its time i remind you “its better to keep your mouth shut and let people believe that you are foolish than to open it and confirm that you are”.

  36. Seless Semore October 26, 2017 at 7:40 am

    Gill you are a shadow of your former self. Every day you are going further down in that pothole. Tell Lynette bring hers and stop waiting and begging for ideas cause between all wanna none of you can put together any solutions to the problems this DLP government got we in at present. Stop addressing Mia start with the PM who you Lynette nor Mark don’t even know where to start with. Bunch square pegs.

  37. luther thorne October 26, 2017 at 8:21 am

    Does the PM ?
    Is Saga Boy ?
    Is Adamson a serious contender?
    Is Barbadis better off now than @ 2008 ?
    Should Mia bring Manifesto now ?
    Is the practice of holding back manifesto similar to Calypsonians holding back songs years ago?
    Should Political parties now do like the Calypsonians do and release early?
    Should Stuart declare his assets like Mia & Owen did ?
    Should Stuart act like a leader and engage the media and the Public?
    Is Stuart an Absentee PM ?

  38. Adrian Hinds October 26, 2017 at 8:27 am

    I agree with you Mr. Gill. It is high time that all political party’s release their manifesto in a timely manner to give active voter citizens time to read and discuss their plans/strategies etc.

    • hcalndre October 26, 2017 at 8:50 pm

      @Adrian Hinds; you are more stupid than Gilly. Is Gilly`s party exempt from producing their`s. It looks like Gill has leave the Lynette Eastmond`s jokers or the party is finished.

  39. Milli Watt October 26, 2017 at 9:42 am

    now now children ………language let Mr. Gill speak he is a former insider with something to say. I would encourage him to give more insights about this leader in the waiting suspect there is more he has to say and he should feel welcomed to say it among friends.

  40. Just Gypsying October 26, 2017 at 10:15 am

    For a man who purports to be an option as part of a new party hoping to win an election, and he could utter such rubbish on a political platform clearly out of misguided spite and bitterness, it just goes to show the UPP platform is a dejected, hodgepodge of former BLP misfits on a rudderless ship. Lynette Eastmond can lead nothing as mighty as an established political party as was clearly proven by the former BLP administration led by her beloved Owen, he never moved her from the Ministry of International Business for her to shine in any other ministry, juxtaposed to Mia whom he continued to place greater responsibility on up to that of Deputy Prime Minister. Therefore with the wind knocked out of her sails she convinced the other political failure, to form a Mottley hate club to donate some monies to the treasury, which is fine because it brek…but when a doctor can only prescribe medicine for other but can’t drink it something is really wrong. #putuporshutup #loserspoliticalparty #missionimpossible #crycrybabies #uselessprogressiveparty

  41. archy percha October 26, 2017 at 10:42 am

    Here are the facts Randolph and Maria Holder.
    Dr. Lowe made his qualifications a Document of the House in June 2015, at the behest of Mia herself, who had taunted him about his Doctoral title.
    Dr.Lowe holds a BA from the University of Cincinnati in Psychology 1984; a Masters in Education same institution; Doctorate in Education 1989 from the same university.
    He is a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Barbados, who I understand also holds a BA in Theology from God’s Bible College in Ohio.
    Maria, that Doctor you mentioned is NOT running for political office.
    Any criminal offenses you heard about him is irrelevant here.
    the London School of Economics can re-issue a copy of her Degree and withthe official letterhead no ?

    • ebaje October 26, 2017 at 4:03 pm

      I thought it was an LEC? The Dems can’t even get their story straight.

    • hcalndre October 26, 2017 at 8:59 pm

      archy perch; why then Feundel did not gave him the ministry of Education with all those qualifications instead of Jones, he probably did not show them to Feundel.

  42. roger headley October 26, 2017 at 10:49 am

    You know what bothers me most about persons like Gill – the fact that all is rosy when they are a part of the fold but once they are not everything is wrong.

    David this speaks to your character – if things were so bad you should not have waited until you were rejected to have a whole lot of long talk – you should have done the stately thing and resigned from the party years ago. Not only you but Lynette, Maria and all the others that were rejected. Grow up man, and get over it. Learn to tek a reject – I am sure this is not your first

  43. Helicopter(8P) October 26, 2017 at 10:51 am

    It makes no sense in today’s world or rather today’s global village for a political candidate to falsify his or her qualifications and come serve in public office. You may not know but the C I A or MI-5 may know, so it makes utterly no sense at all.

  44. Harry October 26, 2017 at 1:23 pm

    Archy the one qualification Lowe should have he doesnt Honesty

  45. Johnathan October 26, 2017 at 3:56 pm

    Since when you had to have a legal certificate to be Prime Minister. I am ashamed of Freundel to be part this idiocy. To hold a meeting called about a legal certificate about a lawyer QC with over 30 years of outstanding service to this country is just to think that BaJan are truly iliterate asses.

  46. Tom October 26, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    ” Comments are free but facts are sacred”

    Mr Gill, please get your facts right.The manifestoes in the last UK election were published after the election was called not before.

  47. janette reifer October 26, 2017 at 8:43 pm

    To tell the truth. This man is more stupid than I thought.
    Silly Gilly. You letting off a lot of hot hot air. Find a toilet and ease your bowels. You are really off.

    • hcalndre October 26, 2017 at 9:12 pm

      In almost everything, rather it be sports, an offence, you`ll hear 3 times and you`re out, 3 knock downs in one round and you`re out, Gilly you were down 4 or 5 times, do you want to die in the political ring? right now you seem to be punch drunk or have some kind of brain injury.
