A SLAVE HOB NOBS WITH THE QUEEN

THE COMMONWEALTH HEADS OF GOVERNMENT MEETING

Commonwealth Heads of Government met in London for two days on 21 and 22 April.  The most momentous decision they made was to accept the Queen’s desire to appoint Prince Charles as the Head of the Commonwealth when she demits office.  So now he has a real job coming.  We think it is reprehensible that […]

DUANE SANDS CAN’T SEEM TO GET OVER CORNED BEEF

It is a point of amusement in PLP circles that Dr. Duane Sands, the hapless Minister of Health, is still running on about how Bahamians shouldn’t be eating corned beef.  The PLP got him off course as he was trying to explain that he intended to use the price control mechanism, to get people to […]

The PLP Answers The Nassau Guardian

Not since the days of the UBP when the Bethels used to cover everything in favour of the UBP where their family members sat in Cabinet has the Nassau Guardian been as prejudiced an instrument as today.

Passing An Unconstitutional Bill

Commonwealth Leaders Make A Mistake Says Gilbert Morris

If nothing proves it, the Commonwealth exposed its backwardness in selecting Prince Charles its leader. What has he ever done for ANY Commonwealth nation? Why not a non-British person as leader? Why not PJ Patterson or a team with Owen Arthur, Hubert or Perry, or Dr Brown? This is the 21st century! If British, why […]
