FNM supporters and these Union leaders in particular have a way with expressing their support that makes them seem as if they are independent thinkers.  If you didn’t know any better, you would actually believe them. The problem is everyone knows Belinda Wilson, head of the Bahamas Union of Teachers is a dyed in the wool FNM.  No question.  So the press goes to her and asks her how she thinks about the FNM and its plan to house the students from Dominica in The Bahamas as announced by Prime Minister Hubert Minnis.  Well of course being a good FNM she supports it.  Everyone knew she wouldn’t dare say she does not.  But what she actually says is that she is concerned and but she wants to know more before she can say whether she does or not.  She has to talk to the Prime Minister.  So of course, before the words were out of her mouth, she must have gotten that call from the Prime Minister because within days, she said that she had spoken to him and surprise of all surprises, she agreed with Dr. Minnis and is comfortable with the programme.  Wonders never cease. They are master speakers in “forked tongue” language.
