Speaking to the press following the announcement that his fellow traveler in politics Vaughn Miller has left and gone to the PLP, Frederick McAlpine who we said last week should join the PLP, was asked what did he intend to do. Mr. McAlpine said he was still thinking about it but he praised Mr. Miller […]
It was most remarkable. A letter was released in the public domain signed by the Minister of Education Jeff Lloyd and addressed to Elma Garraway, the Chair of the National Advisory Council on Education to say that he will no longer be speaking to Belinda Wilson, the President of the Bahamas Union Of Teachers, until […]

Pastor Hugh Roach, perhaps the most iconic Seventh Day Adventist Pastor, went to his grave in an ignominious way courtesy of the Bahamas Government and Hubert Minnis. There is no secret that Pastor Roach was a PLP through and through. His church members asked that the exception be granted to hold a church service and […]
“I don’t mind you calling me a sissy or thief. But if you call me an FNM we gan fight…..” WAYNE MUNROE
A seven year old child Reyes Williams was killed by a stray bullet in Nassau Village last week. It moved the hearts of the nation. There was plenty of outrage to go around. The outrage reached the FNM back bench and the Speaker who is the representative for the area. The Speaker Halson Moultrie couldn’t […]
EDITOR, Ordinarily the movement by a politician like Vaughn Miller from the FNM to the PLP would not warrant my attention, but I was forced to note his words ‘‘it is time for me to do what is best for me’’. This made me think of the lack of altruism in politics. In the sixties […]
EDITOR, Any doubt that the present crew governing this country have lost all contact with sense and sanity should have been dispelled for anyone listening to Financial Services Minister Ellsworth Johnson expounding the benefits of opening wide our country for anyone wishing to come here and work, study or just hang out like they’re back […]
EDITOR THE country’s broke. The Bahamas Minister of Finance says there’s lots of money. Some say that there will be a devaluation. Others say they’ll guarantee there will be no devaluation. Many say they’re taking a page about lying out of Trump’s playbook. You be the judge. For those who are encouraging devaluation I hope […]
During the past week, there was a letter circulating on line and in what’s app groups which purported to be from one of the aspirants for candidacy for the PLP in the next general election. No one knows whether the letter was genuine or not but that did not stop the FNM sites from leaping […]
So the anti-Bahamas QC from hell Fred Smith is at it again trying to stop The Bahamas government from removing illegal structures on land owned by the Government up in Abaco. This is par for the course for him. He will do anything to help illegal squatters. He has been silent, the so called human […]
There was a public report and complaint from unnamed members of the Prison Department that there is a risk of Covid in the prison that the Government was not taking seriously. The next day the Commissioner of the Prison castigated the officers for violating the rules that said that the prison’s business should not be […]

STATEMENT FROM LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION PLP Welcoming Vaughn Miller As A PLP MP For Immediate Release 23 September 2020 I received a call this morning from Vaughn Miller, the […]
The Punch is known for its lies. So why would PLPs believe a story that Belinda Wilson, the troublesome President of the Bahamas Union of Teachers who cannot get along with anyone, has applied for a PLP nomination. She has not. The PLP would not accept or nominate anyone who is not a PLP. Belinda […]
