QE II’s BIRTHDAY HONOURS LIST 2012 FOR BARBADOS – Cabinet Minister gets higher accolade than Career Diplomat

Queen Elizabeth II graciously approved the following awards in the Birthday Honours List 2012.

KNIGHT BACHELOR

Reverend Wesley Winfield Hall. For service to sport and the community

{EDITOR’S NOTE – This is all well and good, while the Rev was a good Tourism Minister he was not a brilliant one, like Peter Morgan or Aaron Truss (strangely enough, non-Bajan and the next Tourism Minister for me should be either Sue Springer or Adrian Loveridge but Bim was never populated by Europeans nor Arawaks, ask LIME and their racially integrated phonebook covers for the last 30 years or so)}

ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE (CIVIL DIVISION)

Sen. Rashid Orlando Marville - For his contribution to the Foreign Service (It would be a pity if he was denied a Knighthood because he has a white spouse? Thought you can marry for love? It is also implied by some Bajans that Austin Husbands who may have a decent chance for competing as MP for St Peter was denied the chance as he too has a non-Bajan and un-Afro Caribbean wife... Strange, eh? Oh well someone should have told Barack Obama's parents, huh?)

COMMANDER OF THE ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE (CBE)

  • Reverend Oscar Holman Millar. For services to the Methodist Church, education and the community
  • SENATOR Rashid Orlando Marville. For his contribution to the Foreign Service
  • Dr. George Lincoln Reid. For services to the financial sector

 

OFFICER OF THE ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE (OBE)

  • Dr. Frances Louise Chandler. For services to agriculture
  • Hensley Henderson Robinson. For public service in the area of the electoral process
  • Carolyn Adora Sinckler. For services to education and sport {EDITOR’S NOTEThat last name, it’s so familiar? H’mm! Maybe I should consult the Ministry of Finance? Or wait ’til after June 26th?} 😉

MEMBER OF THE ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE (MBE)

  • Collis Earl Blackman. For services to labour relations
