Hubert Minnis, the Prime Minister, held a public meeting at the Edmund Moxey Community Centre in the Grove on May. At the meeting he attacked the Member for Parliament for Englerston Glenys Hanna Martin. He was fooling with the right one. Her answer below:
Statement by Glenys Hanna-Martin MP
In response to the Prime Minister
For Immediate Release
3 May 2019
I read a newspaper report where Prime Minister Minnis attacked me at his recent mini rally.
This cannot be coming from the man who has in less than 2 years secured his position as lousiest PM in Bahamian history?
The man who has proven he stands for nothing and will shamelessly say one thing and do the complete opposite?
The same man who says he hates VAT but almost doubled it up on Bahamians? The man who is that awkward gymnast in the Parliament who has mastered the art of flip flopping.
Is this the dummy who was sitting blank-faced next to Oban’s Krueger in the Cabinet Office and now the file has gone missing?
The man who prioritized eating stew fish before answering serious questions about matters resulting in the death of a young woman.
The man who fell in love with the Haitian bananas?
Is this the man who cried fake tears for Dominica but can’t hear the cries of the people of Ragged Island?
The same man who has fake love for over the hill while he hands the entire country over to the wealthy oligarchs.
This man cannot speak to the special relationship that is held between the people of Englerston and myself as their Member of Parliament where the fruit of that relationship is manifested throughout the community.
And as a foot note, he should be careful exposing his rank misogyny; women leaders don’t “row” they SPEAK for the people, which I will continue to do – morning noon and night until my last breath.
He will note that as he queries my political future, he must appreciate that I have been elected by the Bahamian people more times than he has.
