Solutions Barbados to punish bribe takers, reward whistle blowers

Solutions Barbados candidate for St Joseph Jennifer Hiland this evening assured Barbadians that her party will not take the island to the International Monetary Fund if elected to Government.

Speaking at her party’s launch of candidates at Independence Square, she advised Barbadians to reject any political party that intends to go to the IMF for assistance.

She warned that Barbadians will suck salt if they elect any party that will take the island to the IMF.

    Well with that statement Solutions Barbados just lost any hope of getting my vote. I was actually looking at their platform today to see if I could vote for them.

    BT what sort of reporting is this? How many people did it attract? What else was said that was of interests? How many candidates were presented?

    • jennifer November 26, 2017 at 5:59 am

      saga, well spotted. This meager, mealy, mawga piece cannot be all this people said. ed Why downsize the presentation??

      • jennifer November 26, 2017 at 6:26 am

        I remember as a child putting salt on every piece of fruit, tamberind, apples, guava, dunks, etc. Maybe Jennifer has not realised it yet, but this people love sucking salt. Grin and bare is also they motto. DBDBDBDBDBDBDB rock hoppers. Only a coalition government will light some much needed fyah in this place. Oh yes, sort out old tow the line, minority supporting heads combined with new heads. I will keep my ears to the ground. I want to hear about education reform and majority wealth encouragement, black mindset change etc.

        • jennifer November 26, 2017 at 6:37 am

          For any real change to occur in this place the new coalition candidates must possess a certain way of thinking. From old under bridge thinking to over bridge thinking. No room for belly filling, strictly strategic maneuvers.

          • J.C. P. November 26, 2017 at 8:14 pm

            That would mean no party in Barbados can hold more than 14 seats to form a “coalition government” in Barbados. The two or more opposition parties would need (combined) 16 out of 30 seats. Else 15-15 would be hung Parliament, and 16 would be a majority.

        • Bajan Patriot November 26, 2017 at 7:49 am

          Jennifer girl i like you thinking. You and I are realistic thinkers. Truth be told. The only way barbados can make progress is with a coalition government. The one party system can not be trusted anymore. Break it up into smaller parties representing the interests of the people. In that way it will force parliament to make deals to get the best outcome for the country.

          As for solution barbados. Im all for trying something NEW. I want the New car smell for my country. No jalapy with new paint will work this time.

          Lets start NEW PEOPLE!

          • Jennifer November 26, 2017 at 8:02 am

            yep. U know (BP) when this coalition change happened in the UK people could not believe it. The new helped to keep the old in check on that integrity line. We need to make it happen. Break up these stale, stagnant, cloudy/mirky waters. The fish underneath unable to swim and need to breath some fresh air.

    Not because I support them, but excellent presentation by all those who spoke.

    Not surprised at the little coverage given by some media, they have their interest to protect. Don’t forget for one moment that every area of business in managed, and administered by citizens of this country who have the freedom to associate. Sometimes that right robs the masses of critical information, and services.

    So to all Barbadians, don’t sit in your homes waiting to hear the speakers, with offers after the election bell is rung. Get out and give some of your time to hear Solutions Barbados. Many years ago, if Barbadians had taken a negative approach to Grantley Adams, or Errol Barrow and their comrades there might have been no BLP or DLP today. Generations of Barbadians have contributed to building these two parties, we too can give our children, and grandchildren a renewed, positive chance in a new Barbados, under a new party with a 21st century ideology.

  12. Sheron Inniss November 26, 2017 at 6:47 am

    To date I like what I am hearing from this party. I shall continue to follow. I shall also visit their website and read their “manifesto”.

    The 1st two speakers were excellent and if they give me the bit about not going to the IMF aka the back stabbers in writing, signed, sealed, delivered; they can have my X.

    I was there. The crowd was small when I left after Grenville’s presentation. I left because I was tired. Nonetheless, David was a shepherd boy, he killed Goliath and he shouted for joy…..

    Pick sense from that.

    Grenville up de ting.

  13. jrsmith November 26, 2017 at 6:51 am

    Why it seems Barbados is fighting the IMF, my take our politicians is scared of what will be exposed of our island finances to the world………………..

    • jennifer November 26, 2017 at 7:05 am

      @jrsmith – it is all well and good exposing them but that will not change the fact that them politicians belly full up. And with that 90 yr old out dated, non applicable plantation merchants law as governance is right up their alley. It is the poor who will suffer the IMF tight shoe.

    It takes 2 hands to clap. The focus should be on the Bribor not the bribees. When the Bribee (the person accepting the bribe) changes the only change is the name on the Cheque. Unless you lock up and deter the Bribors ( the folks giving the bribes) they will find someone else to write the cheque to.

    • Pearl Carrington
      Pearl Carrington November 26, 2017 at 8:59 pm

    • Pearl Carrington
      Pearl Carrington November 26, 2017 at 9:11 pm

      The person who offers the bribe should be penalised since in most cases the person who accepts the bribe is usually the whistle-blower….Rewarding the whistle-blower and granting the whistle-blower immunity from prosecution in exchange for crucial material or testimonial evidence will definitely put a dent in political and corporate corruption….Miss P

  21. Alex Alleyne November 26, 2017 at 8:16 am

    @jrsmith, You are swiping in the dark with the MIF thing. Those guys always put a grip around the Islands neck that most never find a way out of how to cut away at the fingers of the strangle hold.

  22. Jennifer November 26, 2017 at 8:28 am

    Barbados today – do you think that Marsha Caddle hair as a BLACK woman is relevant to the performance of her DUTIES as a parliamentarian?????? You people are a piece of work.

    • Jennifer November 26, 2017 at 8:30 am

      Marsha needs SIMILAR black women to support her to wear her natural hair how she chooses too.

      • Carson C Cadogan November 26, 2017 at 1:14 pm

        Marsha Caddle looks too scruffy. And that is probably how her brain works as well.

        On the other hand this pretty young Lady looks well groomed, immaculate and well spoken.

        With good ideas to boot!!!!!

        • Carson C Cadogan November 26, 2017 at 1:16 pm

            Too scruffy how?????? Do you realize you are dealing with two different phenotype of these women. Well just stick to her brains. And all the talk you will NOT be voting for the well groomed woman either.

          • Jennifer November 26, 2017 at 1:37 pm

            We have a lot of men with a similar attitude like you who got our lack women funneling precious monies out of their households into other races pockets.

      I do not want to bash these people too much. This could be an oversight. But this is why I say that the thinking and tackling of issues is on my watch. And the bribe giver should not matter either. This is the same thing with the offenders and justice in this place. Lock up the offenders but no one tackles the root of the problem. And the root is very big, and web like in this place.

  29. david gibbs November 26, 2017 at 10:26 am

    It is not enough to say don’t go to the IMF. Okay after that, then what. What is the overall economic policy for reducing the fiscal deficit, reducing the national debt, growing the economy, attracting foreign investment, modernizing the agricultural sector, reducing the oil import and food import bill. The Solutions website has no overall coherent policy frameworks and strategies. It simply seem to have a number tidbits ideas about this and that. It seems to have derived from a perspective of person who has the typical private sector mindset of being anti-public sector. Some of its ideas are quite alarming too. For example public servants will not be allowed to join political parties, the abandonment of parliamentary privilege and privatization of public transport. There are a few proposals i like such as this one:
    “To address the lack of knowledge, secondary school students will learn how to develop and manage a home-based business as part of their school curriculum. A national workshop will be televised, and will be freely available over the Internet, training families in step-by-step methods, how to start and properly manage a home-based business. The national workshops should benefit persons with insufficient family income, or employees who feel trapped in unfulfilling jobs.”

    these new parties beginning to grow on me………was weary of this bunch at first but I predict a coalition and the two major parties having to court a new kid on the block to make up a government.

    • Bajan Patriot November 26, 2017 at 12:19 pm

      No not make up the government. More like share the responsibilitys of governing. What is needed is a constitutional amendment and revision to change the way government function. We need a system where 25 vote are needed to get things pass or stop in parliament. This would stop any ruling government from doing as there like.its call checks and balances. An other change that’s needed is a revision in our constitution that prevent elected representatives from holdings office as a “Head of any Ministry” build them constituency office with staff located in there Parrish of responsibility. Let them work in the field to identify the issue and have them fix. No more fancy office in Bridgetown.

    • Jennifer November 26, 2017 at 12:32 pm

      A coalition gov, will surely throw a spanner and some
      in-candescence in the works of those two lopsided parties. It would be like setting the cat among the pigeons. I will visit Grenville Web page. Since he is into business I want to know about the development of our young people into business rather than the constant funneling of their minds to work for the minority of this country. From UWI to work pipeline. We must appreciate that they will have to continue to update their ideas but something must be done about this place. We also need positive leaning to be achieved by new comers and not negative learning habits from the old regulars.

  32. Alex Alleyne November 26, 2017 at 12:06 pm

    I have not read any political party “manifesto” due to the fact that in the end you will never be able to hold their feet to the fire on anything. They always seems to be wearing a pair if fireproof shoes.

    @, Alex ,Alleyne , hail , hail, your (12:06 ) what a shot , my take we need to force our politicians to be accountable to our people , but as you say ,never being able to hold they feet to the fire , because of them having fire proof shoes …………
    The position they have placed themselves in , only require a party vote , from the party faithful with out taught or meaning ………..

    • Jennifer November 26, 2017 at 2:31 pm

      @JRSmith – But the way I see it we the electorate need to awake and set up a coalition. Put the two opposite magnets together, to send a clear message and to keep the public in the lime light of what is going on in this place. Throw the old and the new together. Let the cat claws come out. sink or swim, get on with it.

    • Jennifer November 26, 2017 at 2:19 pm

      Now CCC you barking up the right tree. And you know this answer is not so clear cut in this place. To even consider dealing with this CAUSTIC bribery situation will HIGHLY depend on who the briber actually is just to set a mare example – check out our jail. Forget about the bribee – insignificant/scapegoat. This is why any WEAK person/party may only seek to deal with the bribee and not the briber. No one will not or cannot even deal with Mia on this practice issue, let alone………..

  36. archy perch November 26, 2017 at 2:34 pm

    I have read and continue reading various comments from the naysayers, haters of politicians and haters of the ruling Democratic Labour Party, and a few natural knuckleheads. If all of you step back from the mirror,adjust your blinkers and accumulated biases and accept the fact that government is doing, and has done a good job of balancing things in a tight spot,and that it – the government- could do better if all of us channel the negative energies towards helping it keep the ship afloat, then things would quickly turn around in Barbados. Do any of you really thing that the party that gave us almost every worthwhile institution – NIS and the University included – would be so stupid as to constantly do things that would challenge their chances of being re-elected. Obviously they are doing what they have to do regardless of the fact that their decisions may not be popular withe the electorate. The DLP then cannot be accused of doing things just to be re-elected. So lying to yourselves for God’s sake and reason. The crooked Barbados Labour Party has a good many of the old rascals running again to sweeten their rewarding appetites. John King could become a millionaire in 2019 once he too gets a Ministry.

    • Jennifer November 26, 2017 at 4:04 pm

      Listen Mr Perch, we all know by now that you are a die hard Dem – but don”t let this cloud your thought process. It appears that someone tied you blinkers too tight behind your head, which is not only blocking your vision but also the blood to your brains, making you feint. Or maybe you are perch too high in a tree. Would a coalition government be a bad thing????? to keep the other old party in check. The new party will not want their reputation tarnished either. Do you not think that the mismanagement of public funds, printing of money, and missing monies are all serious issues in this place. Not to mention that every social entity in this place is currently under water. The two parties will have to work together for the good of the all. I would even recommend a coalition for the next two terms.

  37. Jus me November 26, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    I see we now past the “tipping point”.
    Lets not get carried away.
    We do need to get rid of DLP
    Replace them.with BLP.
    We also must understand 100 per cent.
    Barbados will not be subject to a miracle and our
    Recovery will be only at the cost of earning enough to pay our way.AND pay off the debt run the previous corrupt politicians.

    That is a daunting task.
    So we have to elect realistic persons
    I doubt we have them.

    • Bajan Patriot November 26, 2017 at 5:23 pm

      Girl the more i read your post the more i like your thinking. I told him he need a tech director to get content up on his site and face book page.

      I went looking for info on the meet and greet and not a word on facebook or the party page. Those pages need redesigning. I suggest you and i start advising Grenville.

      He need good sound advice from Barbadians both as home and aboard. Barbadians abroad have a lot to offer barbados. We need the new car look and smell for barbados. Lets retired them two old JALAPIES Parties. In with the new out with the old in 2018.

  40. Saga Boy November 26, 2017 at 5:54 pm

    It’s interesting that people don’t want to go to the IMF but at the same time they are not willing to make sacrifices. They are not willing to change their lifestyles because they want the status quo to remain. Employees are not willing to change attitudes and become more effecient. Businesses still want to use the same amount of foreign currency they are accustom using and consumers want to spend their money buying imported goods. The only way we will improve the current balance of payments and have adequate supplies of foreign reserves is if the gov intervene directly. Stop the importation for a specified period or introduce a quota; companies not involved in creating foreign currency should not have the same access to foreign currency as this companies which generate foreign currency like hotels. Audit all companies which have companies overseas which sell goods to their local companies on the island. Make it compulsory for all the revenue collected by hotels to declare all the money collected outside of Barbados.

  41. Ronald Callender November 26, 2017 at 5:55 pm

    John Everatt, you said that you will not vote for Solutions Barbados. You’re free to vote as you like. All I ask you to do is to make sure you record the current state of Barbados, financially and fiscally at the end of the current government’s mandate.

    Should the party you voted for wins, and takes Barbados to the IMF, I welcome you recording the state of Barbados, financially and fiscally, five years out. Then compare the then conditions with the conditions at the end of the last government. You will know if you voted for the right party.

    I believe Ms. Jennifer Hiland’s promise not to take Barbados to the IMF is a wise decision. She knows the problem will not stop with more money from the IMF. Barbados would be more indebted to foreigners, and have a bigger problem on its hands.

    Her party is called “Solutions Barbados”. From what little I heard of her, I’m not lived in Barbados, but I’m a Barbadian. What she is advancing tells me that she gave the issues that caused the problem some thought.

    I like what I know so far: not going to the IMF, will punish bribe takers, and will reward whistle blowers. This is a good start. The only thing I’ll say is that the electorate should ensure she puts all her promises in her party’s platform.

    Barbados had serious problems for quite a while. This is not the time for Democrats versus Labourites. Any Barbadian who loves Barbados should:
    + take this election seriously
    + study the different platforms
    + ask a ton of probing questions
    + discuss your findings with other Barbadians
    + reflect on everything
    +vote in the best interests of Barbados after going through the preceding suggestions or similar ones.

    I encourage you and your fellow Barbadians to tell all political parties you will only vote for them based on what is in their platform, not based on what they only promised verbally.

    Barbadians cannot avoid an austerity program. You can, but you will only be prolonging the inevitable.

    In life we don’t get something for nothing. We always have to pay the piper. When it comes to an austerity program, everybody, including all businesses, must be part of the belt-tightening. If a business doesn’t want to be part of it, it should not be in Barbados. It is free to pack its bags and set up shop in a more favorable location.

    The average Barbadian need to do one thing: ensure they elect individuals who have Barbados best interest at heart. If they do, they wouldn’t regret their decision. The opposite also holds. Take your pick.

    I’m praying for you all..

    First let me say how disgusting it is that a new political party should announce its presence publicly and NO Logan media houses felt a sense of responsibility to its public to give us prime event coverage.

    I hold no allegiance to any party in this country and therefore ask Barbadians to give serious consideration to every serious candidate presented in their constituency since you have one vote only. No one is allowed to vote party in Barbados so your only vote should be for the individual you consider is capable of delivering in your nation’s interest.

    One thing is certain, and it’d that you have had opportunity after opportunity. to see just two parties perform over some 10 to 12. previous elections and Barbados is at its lowest for all the party hopping.

    Is seems to the time has come for serious. reevaluation of our voting actions, and if in the ways of Almighty God, it is put in the hearts of others, after all these years, to offer intelligent and practical solutions, then do not even be talking about coalition solutions. Act in faith and God is faithful; He will add the blessing this country does not deserve but that He favors us with. We certainly need one big solution to this failed two-party dilemma!

    The DLP run dowm Barbados and now calling people rusty head one teeth and nuh teet. That is how the DLP see our people. The DLP needs to be banish to the wilderness. If you people knew who operates under the nick name CCC , you all would not be surprised by the comments. All I will say is not to assume that CCC refers to the gender that the name suggests.

    IMF always tells governments to cut for the poor too. So in past I believe they wanted bus fares to stop being subsidize or else to charge more for bus fares and take away more subsidies of the poor included. If you do what they say and you make the poor support themselves they will give you as much money as you want. But the poor will have to stop depending on government and will have to expect to get 2 or more jobs to support themselves if their jobs aren’t paying well.

    If Solutions Barbados does not go to the IMF, the country will take twenty or more years to come out of it’s present predicament. The Solutions Barbados presentation was very simplistic but government does not and cannot work as they suggest.
    We need serious money so that we can pay our bills and work towards job creation which is a solution to economic growth.
    It is like an individual with lots of bills can take out a loan to pay off his debts and then only pay one bill. Consolidation, my friend. Doing such will give the country some much needed breathing space.
    What has to happen after, is that there must be strict regulations on the spending of the money.

      Barbados could pay off its debts tomorrow.

      Just tell CHARLES HERBERT to tell his WHITE private sector to pay the central Govt. the $640million it owes.

      And 2, tell them TO use a portion of the more than $8billion they have sitting in the Bank vaults catching rust.

      And 3, the foreign exchange they have in the vaults on their properties, make available to the country.

      And 4, the money they have hidden in offshore accounts, bring it home.

      After all CHARLES HERBERT said that he has Barbados’ best interest at heart.

      Now is time for him to prove it instead of just running up his mouth.

        Now you see why that Bridle continues on this people. surely if these leader had big brains they would have not found themselves in such a position. I tell you the devil is roaming the earth. The chains on Bussa might as well hook back. And any new or old party forming the next government will SURELY continue with that bridle in their mouths too.

    What will solutions do against (Political Corporate Corruption ) which has gradually crept into Barbados for decades ……What will happen to the bribe makers ……… What will happen to the 900 millions of dollars missing from our treasury…….would they be a massive recovery programmer ……..

    All I want to see from bajan politicians , honesty , integrity, being able to manage (Barbados LTD) and the biggest issue for me ,,
    Accountability to our black masses ……..
    We need a piece of legislation which automatically give the voters the right to use the said votes which put our (PMs) in office him/her to be remove , if they are not working on behalf of the people ….. The ( Accountability Act 2017 ) …….

    • Bajan Patriot November 27, 2017 at 10:14 am

      Is much as many Barbadians will agree with you….Its not going to happen anytime soon. These turds will never put any power into the hands of voters to remove them from office.

      Absolute power corrupts the most well meaning person. Did you follow President Robert Mugabe behavior? At lease they have impeachment power’s in the constitution. We dont have that. A new beginning is needed in barbados.

      Out with the two corup parties and let give barbados the “NEW CAR SMELL” i voting for the new car smell. No more LALAPIES IN NEW PAINT.

    My mistake correction ( MPs)………………

    The DLP has failed miserably .
    The Sewage flowing onto the Road on the South Coast sums up the tenure of the DEMOCRATIC LABOUR PARTY – 2008- 2017.

    Enuff Said.I want Elections called Now

    2018 should start with a New Government
