Barbados Labour Party’s Economist uses cheap tactic of Homophobia on a Dead Prime Minister

In Barbados it is claimed one cannot libel the dead, so seeking to what appeared tantamount of capitalising on a cheap Pot Shot at former Colleague David Thompson, the PM who died of Pancreatic Cancer in October 2010, Economist for the Barbados Labour Party – Clyde “Political Quisling” Mascoll – seemed to have implied at least twice that the former leader could have been gay. What bearing does that have on the current Fiscal Crisis which Bajans from all walks of Life are now enduring? The economist needs to stay with money matters – he says male dogs do not mate each other, tell that to the pairs remaining after being rejected as suitors for a bitch in heat, they are so keen to have anything even another dog’s butt will do!

Hearing Sandra Husbands' analytical strategy to seek the post of St James South, one can only wonder why she was overlooked for regaining her Upper Chamber seat when Owen Arthur staged the late October coup hoping snap elections would happen if David Thompson died shortly (Thompson did but the bell did not ring, Arthur desperate now)

This is the same ex-DEM now a rabid Bee who says issues and not mud slinging should be the basis for any Election. Mind you; this is the same Politician, who in Deacons in 1998, said he would never leave the DLP and become a Bee, his father had him too ingrained as a DEM for such heresy. Huh, so much for that! He was the only speaker at a St James South BLP Constituency Branch Meeting to use a Power Point to take a long time making a simple statement – while Bajans may make more money now, the current tax regime leaves them with less disposable income than about five years ago.

During the excessively long and placid presentation, Mascoll made a great play of saluting Owen Arthur as an Economist of note, which is rather surprising considering how Arthur dismissed Mascoll as an opportunistic turncoat when he left the DLP to join the Bees while under the post of Opposition Leader, an unprecedented switch under any global form of gubernatorial politics. Thus Owen ended up coining the term of ‘political Quisling‘ for Mascoll, the term Quisling is actually a Norwegian name from World War 2 when a Mayor in Oslo collaborated with the Nazis in exchange for immunity, his surname then became synonymous with being a traitor for profit. So Mascoll’s exhortation of Arthur in spite of Owen belittling Mascoll’s departure from the DEM’s seems almost bordering on what a few might construe as Homo-Eroticism? If he knew that, would he be so vigourous in praising those who smited him?

These addresses under review were part of a Main Event where Sir Richard Cheltenham headlined a St James South BLP Constituency meeting

Other lecturers that night included Kerrie Symmonds who alleged he possessed a copy of a letter sent to Freundel Stuart complaining how the Board of the Sanitation Service Authority was being micro-managed by Environment Minister Denis Lowe. Symmonds, an ex-General Secretary of the DLP now a BLP Senator picked by Owen Arthur, stated this Micro-Management if true of a Statutory Board is not only irregular but against the laws pertaining to the Cabinet of Barbados.

Most local politicians have scant respect for MP's who cross the floor either way, there are those who claim Dame Billie Miller while still City MP said that Mascoll looked like the dentally-challenged Calypsonian "Malik With Teeth" a sobriquet he's yet to shake off!

Former Senator Sandra Husbands, noted small business motivational speaker and trainer, sought to examine not only where Donville Inniss fell down in representing the seat of St James South in the past 4 years but how Chris Sinckler in her view sold UWI’s birthright for a mess of potter, not even pottage! Mrs Husband’s assessment of Bajan tertiary education may not be so astray – it is understood from pupil sources that overdue fees on books have jumped from 0.25 to $1.00 in one term while the Amenities Fee for Bajan students may increase to approximately $409 according to the UWI source we queried, be sure and watch the above video to get a full grasp of how Barbados is devolving.

  1. I do not like Mascoll in the first place, now I despise him. However, I am not moaning about a petty little man who squandered his chances – I just wanted to tell you Ian it is amazing how your small camera and your basic editing does more than CBC, no wonder you left.
