WHITE PEOPLE NEED MONEY TOO SAYS BILLY ROBERTS

William Roberts of Abaco had a heart felt video on  his Facebook Page in which he  told the story how he had been trying to bet his NIB payments and the run around he was getting from NIB without an answer.  He said that Bahamians have this view that white people all have money but […]

Police Are Concerned After 30 People Out On Bail For Murder Since Covid

Police intelligence officials are concerned about the recent decision of the Supreme Courts to let as many as 30 people charged for murder out on bail.  Usually bail is granted to those on murder charges only after there is no prospect of a trial within three years. If that figure is correct, the police expect […]

THE JAILING OF POOR PEOPLE FOR VIOLATING THE CURFEW

Each day we read the press reports last week of person after person appearing before the courts because they violated the curfew. Inevitably these people come from poor neighbourhoods in New Providence.  This gives the impression that the weight of the law is being felt dispropionately on the poor.  The fines are disproportionate.  People have […]

PEOPLE SO HAPPY TO BE IN JAIL FOR THE COVID VIRUS

20 People Travel In The PM’s Team To The U N

It was like a pilgrim’s progress.  The PLP said nothing because complaining about the size of a delegation for travel is so stupid.  The only thing that needed to be pointed out was the hypocrisy of it all. The hypocrisy and deceit of complaining in opposition abut the size of traveling delegations for The Bahamas, […]

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE EVERYTHING…THE ONLY THING

The unlucky and then lucky people of Burkina Faso were in the streets celebrating last week the election of their new President.  This is the first newly elected President in free and fair elections in 27 years.  As they cheered and the 50 year old banker gave the ritual speeches, the press went and spoke to some […]

DON’T INCITE PEOPLE TO RIOT

  It must be a helluva thing to be born to Haitian parents and raised in this country. We think it’s neither here nor there because regardless of national origin every human being has intrinsic worth. In fact there are so many success stories of Haitian descent in this country: Dupuch, Perigord, Newry, Foulkes, Poitier, […]

ANOTHER PASTOR DEFENDS HATING GAY PEOPLE

Pastor Allen Lee is a pastor who tries to strike a reasoned and reasonable balance in his public pronouncements.  We have disagreed with most of what he says but there was no reason to object vociferously to what he has said in the past..  He has strong views about the death penalty for example.  They […]
