Comment of The Week
TO MINNIS IT’S ALL ONE BIG JOKE

The Tribune cartoonist made the point last week that every thing is now a joke to the Free National Movement.  Indeed there have been so many calls for resignations that it may seem funny but it is not funny at all.  The Prime Minister sits over a corrupt Cabinet.  Those who are not individually corrupt are adopting the corruption by continuing to sit in the Cabinet where their members have engaged in behavior that is unethical and immoral and may even be illegal. Start with the Prime Minister himself who fooled the nation that he was at a signing ceremony

RANARD HENFIELD: A DONE PAY

The man who lied on the PLP and led a group of people in black shirts called WE MARCH and is now in the Senate for helping Hubert Minnis get elected on a big fat lie, has had a rather colorful political career so far.  Quite apart from talking out of both sides of his mouth, he got himself in a bit of trouble for exaggerating his role in a robbery at a local pizza joint. Turns out he played no part in foiling the robbery at all but his take was that he was the super hero in the

LISA SWORN IN WITH PAPA BOSTWICK AND MAMA BOSTWICK PRESENT

The PLP was very kind to Lisa Bostwick Dean as she was sworn in as the FNM’s newest Senator in the Senate on Thursday 5 December 2019. No talk of swine at the trough that day. The Bostwicks have specialized as a family in obtaining all they can get from the FNM each time they are in power. The PLP issued a statement last week reminding the public that this year alone Janet Bostwick was given two national honours one a  knighthood, the other  making her Right Honourable and  then Lisa Dean follows in the footsteps of her brother whose

WHAT DOES HIRING KAY FORBES SMITH MEAN POLITICALLY

The Sad Saga Of The Nassau Christmas Tree

The comment about the badly decorated tree There is certainly a political sign when people tell you that you cannot even choose and decorate the national Christmas tree correctly.  Such is the dilemma that the FNM found itself in last week when they  mounted a Christmas tree said to have cost 32,000 dollars and the public trashed it from day one.  That was Wednesday 4 December 2019.  By Thursday 5 December 2019., the work crews sere taking the offending tree down to be replaced by a more conventional Christmas tree: no word on the additional cost but the public were

U S Diplomat Warns Us About China: Why Don’t They Mind Their Business?

Why do you think that the American government cannot mind their own business? An American diplomat one of the right wing’s school of conspiracy theorists was in Nassau last week to talk about hurricane relief. So the press asks him about China.  Instead of just shutting up and saying the relations between third parties and The Bahamas are none of our business, he proceeded to give a lecture on how we must careful in our relations with China.  No more carefully than with the United States. China has no hegemonic designs on The Bahamas. We cannot say that about the
