On Friday 5 October, the Prime Minister Hubert Minnis took off for the PLP constituency of South and Central Andros and the FNM constituency of North Andros. He did not invite nor tell the Member of Parliament PLP Picewell Forbes that he was going into the constituency. This continues the pattern of insulting PLP Members […]
It appears that Donald Trump, the President of the United States, has his way in that country and the most recent example is that of the appointment with the advice and consent of a craven Senate of a Judge to the Supreme Court who is alleged to be a rapist. This is the second time […]
If you didn’t know any better, you would swear that Dr. Duane Sands was born to great wealth and privilege. He was born to the son of parents from modest beginnings who went on to do well but should have grounded their son into the fact that their father came from Lyon Road in Freetown. […]

There is a great debate going on about the courts in the United States, but no one seems to be paying attention to what is happening to our own courts. There are reports that the Prime Minister personally intervened to get one Judge appointed and then there is the swearing in of the sister of […]

It appears that Deputy Prime Minister Peter Turnquest went a step too far when he personally attacked Clint Watson, the News Director at Eyewitness News. Mr. Turnquest described the work of Mr. Watson as propaganda. Mr. Watson was having none of that and struck back on TV. Candia Dames, the wicked journalistic witch of the […]
Death is the great leveler and Earl Thompson who was buried followed a state recognized funeral service has gone into the great beyond. This pious looking picture of the Deputy Prime Minister Peter Turnquest hides a lot of history. Of course one thing it hides is the wicked deeds of Mr. Turnquest himself as he […]

This photo was doing the rounds last week as the Minnis administration tried to fight off claims of ineptness and insensitivity and losing support. The Prime Minister Hubert Minnis was in the press last week with one device or another. He scoffed at the fact that Lionel Sands, his former close friend and supporter, and […]
He marked his 90th birthday with former Culture Minister Danny Johnson on 5th October 2018.
We come back at this again. They have built a brand new containment enclosure for the garbage but the garbage remains there. Within yards of where people have to buy fresh food, no chilling available, this nasty obtains. The Government is failing to keep this island clean and the food supply safe. The picture […]
(Editor’s note: The Freeport News’ Editor Fred Sturrup has been on the warpath for some time , having switched his tune from decidedly anti PLP to telling the FNM, it was bad public policy to buy the hotel in Freeport. We wondered what was going on. Now this week, The Tribune, headed by the journalistic […]
