FNM Can’t Finish The Fishing Hole Road

Senator Fred Mitchell in Freeport, Grand Bahama, points out that the FNM can’t finish the Fishing Hole Road project three years after they won the Government. No new projects from the FNM and can’t finish the ones left by the PLP. 12 June 2020. The Deputy Prime Minister and MP For East Grand Bahama Peter […]

DUANE SANDS CAN’T HAVE HIS CAKE AND EAT IT TOO

Even The Tribune is getting  brave in its latter years. Dr. Duane Sands really thought he was saying something when he challenged the record of what happened with the souls who went missing after Hurricane Dorian last year in September in Abaco. You will remember and we publish it below this week, that Frankie Campbell, […]

THE POLICE PROMOTIONS

An action has now been filed in the courts against the Government and the Police Service Commission on behalf of Assistant Commissioners Clayton Fernander and Leamond Delaveaux who were displaced in the recent senior promotion exercise on the police force.  You will remember that the Police Service  Commission promoted a woman now Superintendent Deborah Thompson […]

THE FIVE BRAVE MEN ON COLUMBUS

Donneldo Harris, T’Sean Mott, Amad Burns, Duran Saunders and Jerad Darville, aka The V Brave Men all appeared before the Columbus Statue 10 June 2020 at Government House and demanded its removal. The five men were joined in their campaign by an unlikely ally, The Tribune who argued that the statue had lost its relevance. […]

Black And White On The Bahamian Beaches

While people are excited about the struggle for Black lives in the United States, the battle goes on undisguised and with not so subtle but internalized racism and colourism unabated in The Bahamas.  So two people’s experiences on the Montagu Beach during the Covid 19 Crisis. The beaches are closed by law. So a black […]

The Deputy Speaker Don Saunders Stands Up To Peter Turnquest

The Budget Debate in The Bahamas is usually just an empty talk fest.  This one this year is no exception.  What it is useful for however, is that it gives the public and the pundits a chance to look behind the veil of public secrecy and determine what is really going on within the government’s […]

BRIAN SEYMOUR WRITES WHEN LEADERS LACK VISION

When leaders lack vision, poor people suffer. Today, as the government of The Bahamas celebrate the impending 1 July reopening of the Bahamas to the world, and as the government dismantles all the mechanisms and protocols that were put in place to protect its people from covid-19; the individual citizen of this country must now […]

Marvin Dames At The Heart Of Every Calamity

Marvin Dames is the Minister of National Security.  In the Minnis administration, he seems to be untouchable. He has been at the centre of every political calamity for the Minnis administration and yet though judicially condemned and a failure as a Minister and a public figure, he continues to enjoy the Prime Minister’s protection. Think […]

THE U.S. WILL FORCE US TO OPEN COVID OR NO COVID

Covid 19 is not dead.  It is still with us.  Our lousy no good government has taken 11 weeks to find that out. In the midst of their confusion, the Minister of Tourism Dionisio D’Aguilar launched the tourism product reopening.  It’s to be 1 July 2020 and there is no stopping it.  The fliers and […]

Mr. Two Passports Frankie Campbell Social Services Minister

Another one of the precious moments from the Budget Debate.  Frederick Macalpine did quite a good job in the debate and did quite a hatchet job on his colleagues in the FNM. So the  strategy of the FNM with Mr. Macalpine is to interrupt him at every turn with heckling and frivolous points of contention […]
