First Hubert Minnis has been packing the courts with his FNM friends. So justice is not what it ought to be, soon it will turn out to be for FNMs only. Now he further perverted the system by choosing a largely FNM corps to join the ranks of the Queen’s Counsels. This is supposed to […]
Unfortunately for Prime Minister Hubert Minnis smoking grass is not gonna help him get re-elected. He has been in the press lately and just as recently as 5th February 2020 espousing in the House of Assembly the wonders of a policy to decriminalize possession of grass and letting people out of prison who are imprisoned […]
The talk du jour these days is the corona virus that is supposed to be spreading exponentially from its discovery in China about a month ago. The news is it has killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands. The Chinese Government is accused of being sluggish in response. Its ubiquitous President Xi Jinping has said […]
So the United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had the foreign ministers of Jamaica, The Bahamas, St Lucia, Haiti, St. Kitts and Nevis, Belize and the Dominican Republic over for tea. They met in Jamaica on Tuesday 21 January 2020 and in this round table discussion, the US pressed their support for the overthrow […]
So the Junkanoo results this year remind you of the saying “ not every good-bye is gone”. On Boxing Day 2019 the Junkanoo Corporation (JCNP) announced that the Valley Boy’s A Group had won the parade. They did so by a hair’s breadth. The Saxons were hard on their heels. The Corporation said that the […]
The traveller’s in The Bahamas are not well served by the airlines that fly them around, nor by the regulator that is to be looking after their safety. Flights on each of the airlines are late routinely. They keep passengers waiting without explanation and there is no explanation at all for late departures. What folks […]
Originally appeared in the Nassau Guardian The governing Free National Movement (FNM) launched its bid for re-election last week on a foundation of disinformation, misleading some of this country’s most disenfranchised communities in a telling signal that the Bahamian people could be in for a political period marked by desperation and untoward attempts to maintain […]
The following statement was issued by the Leader of the Progressive Liberal Party about the fake Town Hall meeting held by the Prime Minister at which he then announced was the launch of his re-election campaign. This sent some PLPs into a tizzy calling on the party to get in the field and to get […]
Dr. Johnny Rodgers was in a sense to the manor born. He is now a successful businessman, built on top of a successful career in eye medicine. He is the son of another Doctor Rodgers. He has two well to do sisters both successful in their own rights having retired from the public service. On […]
The country already has the experience of the Prime Minister seeking to fool people by signing that Oban Deal for Grand Bahama with a 5 billion dollar investment tag and it turned out to be as phony as a two dollar bill.
If the Prime Minister has no confidence in the Ministry of Health, then that means really he had no confidence in the Minister.
Have you ever tried to reach someone at a Branch of the Royal Bank of Canada or Finco in The Bahamas? You should try it for yourself even if you are not “a client” as they say of the Bank. You dial a number in Nassau and someone in Jamaica picks up the phone. You […]
The Progressive Liberal Party has asked several times for the resignation or dismissal of Marvin Dames, the Minister of National Security. The cry first came out because he was condemned judicially by a magistrate for interfering in the case against Frank Smith, the former MP and Senator. He has also shown time and again that […]
The pompous Brian Moree, who is now the Chief Justice of The Bahamas, ( god help us all ) is now Sir Brian Moree. Now that he has the knighthood, he can probably retire and go back to his practice. For good measure, the Governor General C A Smith now has another title to add […]
In his New Year’s statements to reporter Leandra Rolle of The Tribune and published in 2 January 2020, the Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said that he has seven years to fulfill his campaign promise to fulfill his campaign promises. This is chutzpah of the highest order. He is clueless as to how unpopular the Government […]
(Editor’s note: The U S President Donald Trump ordered the killing of the general of another country with whom it is not at war. This is a serious issue. Gilbert Morris, the public commentator, writes a thoughtful reflection.) Gilbert Morris comments on Facebook:2 January 2019 THE SHADOW MASTER…! Whomever reads me knows, I believe diplomatic […]
We repeat a series of posts by Glenys Hanna Martin, the Shadow Minister of Transport, from her Facebook Page. Boxing Day On The Commissioner Of Police As we approach 2020 we must not tolerate the blurring of constitutional lines between the political directorate and the RBPF. We have constitutional protections as citizens in a democratic […]
That Marvin Dames is a political nitwit and an insensitive twit, the world knows it. The part that they do not know is that he is a spendthrift. Last year he signed a two million dollars contract to install something called shot spotter technology which was supposed to spot gunshots in the town and stop […]
From The Tribune13 December 2019 (Editor’s Note: we print below the report from The Tribune of the statement in support of Prime Minister Hubert Minnis by Michael Pintard MP. This does not sound like a ringing endorsement to us. This sounds like a man who is struggling to be free. We say to Mr. Pintard: […]
The people of the united Kingdom have surely lost their minds. They have now given the Government into the hands of an imbecile, albeit one educated at Oxford.
The dirty deed has been done by Hubert Minnis, the Prime Minister. He passed a whole act to create a superfluous hurricane relief agency, just to create a sinecure for Kay Forbes Smith, to whom he owes the slogan: It’s the people’s time.
The question everyone is asking and in answer to which all FNMs from the Hubert Minnis own down are blind, deaf and dumb, is how is that a man who is obviously a damn fool, wacky in the extreme, a crooked bad a criminal, continuing to be on the public payroll dissing officials of the country and there appears to be no one who can govern him?
Dame Joan Sawyer was not the best jurist in country; in fact we was one of the worst. She had a reputation for seizing a side and then bashing counsel disrespectfully in the courts.
The picture shows the now discredited Jonathan Ash, the star witness in the concocted case of the Crown against Shane Gibson. This big grown man who claimed to be a born again Christian came to court hiding like a little bitch behind seven policemen and sung for his supper, that is, got immunity to tell […]
This is but one example of the tendentious and inflammatory headlines by the press over the course of the Shane Gibson trial. They were obviously designed to create prejudice against the defendant. There is no press council or legislation to provide redress for this and the Judge on the case Carolita Bethel refused to do […]
Garvin Tynes Primary School28th November 2019
So the fake and phony Fred Smith front organization was offended this past week because someone, who they didn’t name and couldn’t seem to identify, published what they claimed were lies about the principals of the fake and phony organization that were unflattering and defamatory, so they said. In an angry press statement, they claimed […]
The headline in The Tribune last week was as startling and it was untrue. According to Dr Duane Sands, the PLP put in place a contract with a vendor called All Scripts, for the installation of a Health Management Information System. This system was designed to rationalize the billing process across all public service health […]
