A word to the wise is usually sufficient. However, even those who are supposed to be clothed in their right minds in this FNM people’s time Government seem to have lost their reason. We say the words of Mark Anthony at the funeral of Julius Caesar as penned by William Shakespeare: “O judgment thou art fled to brutish beasts, and men have lost their reason.” We direct those words to Jeffery Lloyd not personally but as the Bahamas’ Minister of Education
How can you stand up in front of six hundred people, and tell a bold faced untruth that these low level workers at the Minister of Education were not hired properly? And even if that were the case, how can you threaten to fire them and to talk down to grown men and women like children? How can you a former Catholic Deacon stand up and say such a cruel and heartless thing in the name of being frank and direct and honest? Who mistreated them? Who disrespected them?
Some of those people have been on contract for as many as ten years, meaning that they may have been hired by the FNM administration. It was Perry Christie who agreed last July and announced the regularization of 3500 people in the public service in the position of being on contract without any end in sight.
You are no longer a Deacon and no longer a talk show host, you are the Minister. Your role is not to describe problems but to fix them.
How can you stay in a Government that persistently and consistently lies about the state of finances of the country and its public policy?
How can you be a part of scrapping an immigration policy which is designed to protect the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and secure that everyone within its borders are registered and we know who is within are borders and what we are doing here?
If the immigration policy is scrapped, you will open the floodgates to every illegal immigrant to come to The Bahamas. It will be open season.
One cannot be so FNM that you cannot see the truth.
Many people were counting on you not to get swallowed up in the FNM fervour.
This is too much for many to bear.
