In the last days of the campaign John Pinder, the FNM’s candidate for Fox Hill invaded the public space in Fox Hill to put his stamp on the Fox Hill Parade. He did this knowing that this would cause a problem with the PLPs who were already planted there. This was the problem with the campaign of Mr. Pinder, always seeking confrontation where none was necessary. In one of the speeches on the park he told the people that he was husband of one wife and children. He said that Fox Hill had to make a moral choice between Fred Mitchell and himself. We do not agree that morality had anything to do with it, however, Fox Hill has made its choice. Since John Pinder said it was a moral choice, what does the result in favour of Senator Mitchell say about Mr. Pinder and his moral standing?
The PLP should not misread what the result of the general election of 16 September means. It is true that the majority of the seats are vastly in favour of the PLP but that does not mean that every soul is a PLP. The PLP has won the majority of the votes cast. There are plenty who stayed at home and that is the question the PLP ought to be asking themselves: why did that happen and what can the PLP do to re-engage that group that stayed home? To be sure some of it must be due to the pandemic but is some of it due to apathy and if so what does that mean going forward? We just want to say to the PLP: be careful how you interpret what happened on Thursday past. It is imperative that the same thing that happened to Hubert Minnis does not happen to the PLP.
