Prescod warns of third party ‘imposters’

Two Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Members of Parliament (MP) last night levelled broadsides on the newer and recently formed political parties, accusing them of being vote spoilers, whose presence in the upcoming election will benefit the incumbent Democratic Labour Party (DLP).

Addressing a BLP rally at the junction of Strathclyde and Bank Hall, St Michael East MP Trevor Prescod and City representative Jeffrey Bostic made known their ‘third party’ suspicions as they sought to link the newly formed groups to the agenda of the ruling DLP.

Prescod pulled no punches as he warned party supporters, “do not take any chances with these imposters.

“They are paid by the Democratic Labour Party to undermine the Barbados Labour Party,” he charged.

Prescod contended that these groups were not contesting the elections to win the Government, but to steal BLP votes.

“They can’t win a seat. Some of them don’t even have 15 candidates,” he said, adding, “these mischief makers want to do all they can by targeting three or four constituencies”.

He proceeded to warn Bostic and St Michael West candidate Joseph Atherley, “there are people with ill-gotten funds from the state that want to use it against you”.

He was joined by Bostic in condemning the other parties for not saying enough against the present Government.

“It is passing strange that all these other parties, with all the difficulties and hardships going on in this country, that they cannot attack the Government for their poor performance and the Government’s poor record, but they’re joining-up, coming together to attack the Barbados Labour Party,” he said.

Indicating that the BLP planned to focus on these minority parties sometime soon, the City MP said, “their time will come” as he warned voters not to be swayed.

“All I will say at this stage is that based on the utterances of these other parties … a vote for any of those parties is a vote for the Democratic Labour Party,” he said.

    Luther, these people came out of the BLP because of the ill treatment of Mia. One thing for sure is that the BLP is divided. By the way, how is your hunger strike going? You are not a man of your word. You are worst than the worst politician. If you keep your word I will begin to listen to you. Until then you are just a mass of political emotional hot air.

      Saga boy; most of them are disgruntled losers, if they were boxers they would not given a license to fight anymore after being knocked out in their last 3 or 4 fights unless they want them to die in the ring. With the kind of beatings, there must be some kind of brain damage.

    The silly season is under way and the lies and deceit are more than obvious. These third parties are not a vote for the DLP. They are an alternative to the kind of governments we have experienced in the past. Of course the BLP and DLP will not be praising them as they are rivals. No one expects the UPP or Solutions to form the next government. But, if they can take a few seats then they can have some power. Myself I will be voting for the UPP candidate but you people have to make up your own minds. Do you want a continuation of what we have now or do you want a change?

The best thing that can happen in Barbados is a collection government. All elected representatives will be force to work together.

    here is the pot calling the kettle black. Fellow Barbadians our system of government is not to be run by a few people call the party (BLP,DLP,UPP) this party thing has led us into bondage with no check and balances. we have individual constituencies, the people off these constituencies should have the right to elect individuals who live in their constituency,mature people who have a proven track record, people who understand the needs of they fellow man. We have to elect individuals who’s loyalty is to the people of their constituency not a party. These elected people are to meet in our house of assembly and choice a leader who become Prime Minister. This is the only way we will get a government for all the people. Not a party government who only look out for the few.

    Solutions Barbados has nothing to do with either the D.L.P. or the B.L.P. We are not funded by either, and we are not here to take votes from, or give votes to either of these parties. We do not have any Ex B.L.P. or EX D.L.P members in this party. Solutions Barbados is here to give the citizens of this nation an alternative to the hopelessness and total incompetence, that exists under the current D.L.P. administration, and the carelessness, unadulterated financial wastage, and economic destruction that was created by the B.L.P. and will continue under them again if they are elected. Both parties need to be removed from the house of assembly for a very long time in our view, in the next election. So please don’t confuse us with any other third parties possible agendas.

    Solutions Barbados, thanks for declaring the facts for these people. Not a former candidate of any party, not a former MP from any party. New wine in new wine skin. No old wine in new wine skin.

    These B L P candidates running scared. I’m ashamed of both Prescott and Bostic.

    They singing Mia songs, she know this is her last mass and her internal opponents can’t wait. They prefer to spend another five in opposition than to be lead by her.

    Which meeting George spoke at so far? George got a bundle under his arm, and sales going pretty brisk too, so Pressie, and Jeffrey have to sing the songs prepared for them. I understand the B L P looking for local speakers for their platform, but they want to give the speakers prepared topics on which to speak and under their guidance too. Luther Thorne since you’re not on the hunger strike, perhaps you can speak in public for them.

    This B L P group desperate though. Anybody ever heard an opposition party declare an election campaign started. Now all the posters destroyed by the weather, even the weather appears to be working against them. From all reports, the D L P have some documented surprises for the opposition leader. Let the battle lines be drawn.

    I’m keen, because I have a quiet confidence we will see a totally new party leading us or a solid coalition government for the first time. Let the people rejoice, cause we have no choice. That’s the song we’ll be singing, not the old B L P and D L P songs.

    It would not be SOLUTIONS.
    SOLUTIONS is a joke thing that no serious person is taking seriously.

    It would not be the DLP – They have destroyed the Country, the Economy and left things Sewage — eee

    In the final analysis having said all of the above, I will support any Government – Any Goverment that puts Barbados first. Who does not feel that they are the Masters, the Kings and Queens to whom we must hold aloft or bow down and worship. Any Government that is transparent and accountable.

    The present crop of Politicians all feel or at least they appear to believe that they are more than us. Most of them live in the Massa BIG HOUSE mentality Warp. Drive brand name vehicles and wear
    certain brand name shoes. Most of them feel that are the
    MASTERS and they eat the best and drink the best or so they
    think and just like the Massa they display similar physical characteristics gained from Sloth, Gluttony and immoral acts.

    Politicians in Barbados should not be paid.
    They should be given a Stipend.
    If this was done we would not have the largest and most unproductive Cabinet in Barbados’ history with an Absentee Ceremonial Prime Minister getting BIG Salaries, per diems, quid pro quo proceeds and free food car and travel overseas AND ONLY 5 WEEKS OF COVER. Where the money gone ? redundant !

    A Career in Politics right now is about what you can get

    @ luther thorne: If I can take you at your word, as i’m still awaiting the promised ‘hunger strike’.

    If you will support any government that put Barbados first, then luther my boy, “you can’t be hoping to support either the B L P or D L P”. They have both proven beyond any doubt that they put themselves and their campaign sponsors interest first. So luther, dear luther you have to join me and support another party. We will have to see if the other parties will also place themselves and their sponsors first.

    We know what these two are about, we are old enough to know and should be informing the youth, not making the same errors repeatedly.

    have some plans that they cannot show have worked anywhere else.
    While SOLUTIONS might mean well Barbados politics is a dirty nasty game of mendicancy , largesse and handouts. Grenville Phillips look too soft and decent to wrestle with the nastiness on Barbados politics

    I dont think Grenville can wrestle with the nasty mout party supporters and with the political trickery.. Grenville feel that first of all winning is possible and that running the Country would be as easy as ISO 9000. Joke !!

    I listened to Trevor Prescod’s speech at the last BLP meeting in Bank Hall via the internet.

    And what a horrible and disjointed speech it was.

    It was easily the WORST speech of the night.

    Prescod must be retired by the majority of voters of the St. Michael East constituency in the next general election.

    His imputation that the People’s Democratic Congress (PDC) is paid by the DLP might be an indication that he is like a drowning man catching at straws in these last hurrahs before the bell is rung for the next local general elections.

    Anyhow, below are a compilation of the expressions of a few thoughts of mine upon the conclusion of his very uninspiring and ridiculous speech. Such expressions that were first addressed to a person on Facebook.

    “Also, Prescod might have been very delusional. For, later on in his speech, he went on to make reference to there being more poverty in Barbados now than at any time in the past including the time of enslavement.

    Imagine that is what he told the crowd there!!

    Prescod was very horrible, indeed.”

    ———————————————————————————————————-

    “Trevor Prescod was his ABSOLUTELY WORST.

    He needs to take a rest from competitive electoral politics.

    He is over-exerting himself and he is making too many mistakes.

    He is under much political pressure. He needs to go and relax.

    His best sell by date, if that is what it is called, has gone.

    Yes, that was a very grave insult to the recognition of the very horrific things our people would have gone through during that very inhuman and cruel period (Prescod had intimated to the crowd that poverty levels in Barbados now were WORST they have ever been in the history of our country – even WORST then when our forbears were enslaved).

    What we are going through right now is incomparable to what our forbears went through the period of enslavement in these Western parts.”

    The DLP is the worse party to ever form the Government of Barbados.

    Downgrades to Junk Bond Status

    Sewage in the Streets

    Potholes in the Road

    Not a single Bus bought in 10 years

    Public workers no increase in 10 years.

    Reserves Down

    And Mark Adamson got time to attack the BLP Opposition.
    Man look ! They got more mad not in Jenkins than they got out . Thats all I would say to that
    But people in Barbados.

    It is rather strange that third parties’ focus appears to be more concentrated on the Opposition than the incumbent against the background of the myriad of issues facing the country. I suspect there is a force greater than patriotism that is at work here?
