In one of his more lucid and rare moments, the FNM hack and ideologue Juan McCartney who populates the radio fare of the Nassau Guardian tried to defend Hubert Minnis who was being made fun of because he spelt the word “NO” N.P.O. He and Mr. McCartney were the laughing stock of the country last […]
The cartoonist Jamaal Rolle had great fun at the Prime Minister’s expense last week.
Those who say the times are a changing, perhaps they are right. But the more times change, it appears the more they remain the same. So the young Black people of this country put these folk back in power. What a shame.

We were amused by the comments of the Minister of National Security Marvin Dames, who appears to be Government’s lead spokesman on the locking up of PLP politicians.
