The recently released Wikileaks cables on 30th August 2011 has left many tongues wagging, because thus far three persons within politics on the island have been identified

These individuals include, political scientist Mr. Peter Wickham, Opposition Member of Parliament Mia Mottley, and former Senator Philip Goddard.

Peter Wickham

A release of a cable which has documented conversation apparently made by Mr. Wickham has been making the rounds on the internet. Mr. Wickham has been praised in some corners for speaking what might be the truth, but hammered in others for the same.

Peter Wickham has denied the authenticity of the statements in a CADRES media release, by stating he never met with the then Ambassador Mary Kramer, nor is he privy to some details mentioned in the cables.

Mia Mottley

Mia Mottley made it to the Wikileaks website after a May 30th 2007, meeting with Ambassador Mary Ourisman.

Mottley was praise with one breath, but criticized with another. She was described as one with characteristics of abrasiveness and overconfidence. The cable even got personal about what her sexual preference might be. (not mentioned here see cable)

Philip Goddard

Former Senator Philip Goddard has also made an appearance on the good old Wikileaks site, and described by the embassy as an "excellent contact". As he disclosed according to the cable, that Mottley was not leadership material according to the kingpins of the Barbados Labour Party, due to her lifestyle.
