Mottley under fire again from Lowe over LEC

Minister of the Environment Dr Denis Lowe is not prepared to let Opposition Leader Mia Mottley rest until she produces her Legal Education Certificate (LEC) which he insists is required of attorneys to practise in Barbados.

And today in the House of Assembly, Lowe, the Member of Parliament for Christ Church East, peppered Mottley with jabs about her failure so far to produce the controversial LEC.

Speaking during debate on the Protection of Agricultural Products and Livestock Bill 2017 in the Lower House, Lowe again made reference to the question of certification as he said the bill made it necessary for vendors of agricultural products to have a certificate of registration.

He said Mottley had attacked the Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite by suggesting that he had done some “misdeed” by certifying the legislation.

“If you walk into his office I am guaranteed that you will see evidence that he has been duly qualified to practise law in Barbados. Now that’s where criminalization will happen if you are not duly qualified but you are posing yourself as an imposture and where you will find that there are documents that have been certified by this individual and all this Honourable House has asked is that like the doctor, like the accountant, like the psychiatrist, like the psychologist, and now like the farmer, bring the evidence that you have been duly certified to practise law in this country,” Lowe told the House.

He added: “You have to ask yourself the question, ‘What has the Barbadian society become when there seems to be a propensity to say, ‘but so and so doesn’t need a Legal Education Certificate’. Why?

“Because they are a product of privilege; because they are a part of the snobbery class; because they have deserted their class origins? And now cause themselves to be in a place where they do not belong.

“What the Minister of Agriculture has sought to do is to say to every single person in the practice of agriculture, ‘Now you can be duly certified; you can take your produce anywhere, present your certificate and no one can turn you back’. That is all that is happening,” Lowe insisted.

However, the Minister of the Environment said “there seems to be this hint . . . of lawlessness emanating from the voice of the Leader of the Opposition. Where now once this Government seeks to put systems in place to protect our society, the Government is being blamed for criminalizing elements in the society.”

      What has Barbados come to?

      A Lawyer strictly by privilege, the pulling of strings, by family, by changing of rules, but certainly not by training and proper qualifications??

    It is time that you start making a contribution to the debates, and stop making yourself an idiot when ever you stand on your feet. Asking for an LEC is not go to make you get more vote neither would you a good politician.

    Is this a banana republic. The piece of paper she possesses (which we have not see up to now), would only allow her to teach law, not act as a lawyer. All she has to do is do the necessary studying to qualify to practice here in Barbados and the Caribbean. I have a neighbour whose son learnt to be a Doctor in Cuba and he has to work in another Caribbean island because the local body has its own qualifying standards. Electricians need their piece of paper; you don’t need qualifications to pick up garbage not evem to talk it in Parliament. She is heading for the highest office in government, nobody else is.Therefore SHE MUST address this issue. IT WILL NOT GO AWAY. How can/will she – once in office- demand that an Economist within the Prime Minister’s office be truely certified for the position, when she herself is a FAKE. I am not surprised that she got away with it so far though. The last name helped carry. SMH

      Saga Boy, if you think the BLP minding Lowe and his nonsense about LEC think again.

      Possession of an LEC is not going to fix the mess that this Government has the country in. It is not going to fix the potholes, get the garbage collected, put people back to work, fix the economy, correct the 20 downgrades, get rid of the thirty plus taxes or reduce them to a sensible level where Barbadians can breathe again.

      That is what the people of this country are concerned about, not who has an LEC. Besides some who are in possession of this much valued LEC do not seem to be shining examples.

      Minister Lowe should also realise that if he keeps harping on it soon nobody will hear him. It just becomes background noise.

    I agree with all of you, that we have many issues to address here in this country. National issues that affects everybody’s life. The economy, bad roads, sewerage problems, crime, transportation, education (UWI financing), health (garbage), CBC, and of course the issue of having an accreditation council, accreditation laws, and not knowing if the person who aspires to be our next leader, who has been our Attorney General, and signed on our behalf many documents critical to our international associations, and contractual obligations was, or is actually qualified to do so.

    Now for one moment, remove your political head dress and simply be a citizen of Barbados. Anyone who think that their child, sibling, relative, friend or themselves could be practising any profession in this country, gaining revenue from it, and not be qualified would get away with it. Would not be arrested by the RBPF fraud unit, charged and hauled before the courts. Represent it here. She has a right to all of you, her supporters to produce her LLB, or diploma. If it is that there was no need for the LEC during her admittance period, then the LLB or diploma was always, and still is a requirement.

    Lowe as a citizen, MP and representative of the people has a right to constantly request the declaration. She frequently called on him to produce his, and he did. So why does any of you have an issue with him asking for hers?

    I’m happy at least a Talma is around to tell Barbadians when was the first firearm used in a private secondary school where a student was shot in the mouth. No charges were filed, no student was suspended, and that was the end of that.

    This is what I would love for you to answer Mr. Talma. What has been the contribution of the Talmas in politics, and what seat did Sir E have. The seat belonged to the people and they’ve taken it back. They days of the privileged class, and the elitist has come to an end, and not returning in Barbados.

    Specific language in a Treaty which allows a person base on time lines too not require an LEC is not to be found in the Laws of Barbados that specifically determines the qualification/requirements for persons to practice law in Barbados. Why is there this disparity? A treaty cannot be held to a higher standard of acceptance than the laws of Barbados.

    Patty and Francis I agree with you. This is what I have been asking BT to do all along. BT we are calling on you to set a standard of behavior for persons to abide with if they are contributing to a thread. Cursing and disrespectful behavior should not be permitted. These comments are being read by persons all across the world. What sort of empressions do we wish to protray? Black people laughing at another black persons because their phenotype is not European? People cussing and swearing T each other because of a difference of opinion?

      i was expecting this..we are so unwise at times…Man wake up and stop allowing people to cause us black people to tear down each other. Have we learnt nothing from the past…If you read my comments carefully you would see I said we need to stop being fooled and stop being so foolish. What does cursing one another and insulting people do? Not one thing…Then again it does. It sends to our young ones a message. A message that disrespect and cursing someone as soon as they have a different view point is the new norm. It sends a message to the young to disrespect and curse anyone you don’t like. What we are sowing we are reaping. Silly behaviour for the silly season. I am not here dealing with personalities my boy. I am here concerned that we have gotten so foolish that we are ready to eat one another over politicians. This divide and rule mentality has always been used to destroy us.Wake and stop being used. It doesn’t make sense. War my foo, we are fighting against ourselves. Stop being so blood thirsty. I predict someone will get hurt this election because you folk and thirsting for war. And the politicians are smiling their way to the bank. I implore all Barbadians, you can disagree with one another, but stop this cannabalism; It is not how we do things here, at least not before…I am not here to fight with anyone or pick sides. I state common sense facts. We are fighting each other..at the end there will be no winners….Listen to reason my fellow Barbadians…And stop trying to belittle someone’s comments. I can see trouble brewing for Barbados, trouble we won’t like if people continue down these lines

        Listen to yourself. I am sure you were raised with higher standards than this. Judging people by your standards. Come on man, we are not here to fight and bite at each others throat. If someone tries to bring sanity to this page, are they now public enemy number one? Man think, we never know what will happen to us in the future. Be careful what we ask for! Barbadians were known as people who could reason, agree, disagree and still be human about it. What is becoming of us??

    The DLP needs to disband and get off the Political scene.

    Every time they form the Government since 1971 they have hurt the Country.

    1971 to 1976 – Bad Governance. 1986 – 1994- worse . 2008 to 2018- wussah. And everytime they leave Government, they leave the Country worst off than theybfound it. They hurt the Economy and the Country and left the Country mashed up. BLP came in 1976 an immediately things turned around. Tom Adams moved Barbados upward. The DEMS came with lies and stinking lies too , accuse the BLP of being arrogant and said the Country needed a change. The electorate took the good work to hold the economy
    together for granted and voted for the DEMS backraise Budget
    BY 1988 Richie cussed Sandy and pull up stumps calling the Budget of that year a Backstreet Abortion and by 1991 the IMF , the 8 % cut and the Country in a complete mess. When the DEMS left in 1994, Barbados was in a complete mess. The BLP brought back the Country to Sustainability only for people again to take things for granted and vote for these inept wild boys who cant get it right.. It is time for the BLP to rescue Barbados again

    Call Elections NOW. Elections should be on January 2, 2018

    I am on Hunger Strike as a protest to force the calling of elections.
    Starting December 1 until such time as they are called.j

    Patty while your arguments sound reasonable it is strange you suddenly appear talking about morals.Where were you pre 2008?Mr Thompson walk the length and Breadth of Barbados throwing innuendo against Mr Arthur about a secret IMF deal,about missing houses,about Minister,s corruptionand who going to be locked up,storming out of Parliament saying he ain,t coming back,until Elections are called,you remember any of this?What about bloggers calling Ms Mottley,Mr Arthur ,Mr Mascoll and their families all kind of names you saw any of this,or do you have convenient memory?My point to you is if you were good with that behavior then do not come crying crocodile tears when the shoe on the other foot,as what goes around comes around,so like I said if you cannot stand the heat stay out of the kitchen.

    1. @GreenGiant. I have this morning had your post of 29th inst brought to my attention. Most intriguing. I, and hopefully many others, would be grateful for your elucidation of para 2. Thank you kindly.
    2. As regards para 3, may I draw your attention to Chapter 7 of the excellent volume ‘Political warriors’ written by Harold Hoyte Esq. A book, I would suggest, which should be compulsory reading for all Students, and anybody else interested in the true History of the progression from Colonialism of our once great Island. The Foreword alone is a work of linguistic art before the Editor Emeritus in the following chapters takes one vividly back to peruse our transformation.
