We repeat what she carried in her editorial of 6th August:



On our web site – tribune242— a reader commenting on yesterday’s editorial had this to say: “It would be nice to know how deep Mitchell’s Bahamian pedigree does go. I am told that his father was a gentleman and his sister is quite lovely, so I guess he gets his racial arrogance from his Ma.”

In fairness to a very fine lady, we must correct this assumption. Mrs. Mitchell was a senior public servant in the Ministry of Welfare. She was the secretary of the late Eugene Dupuch, QC, Minister of Welfare, who constantly sang her praises. According to him there was nothing like the capable, efficient, charming Mrs. Mitchell. Former prime minister Hubert Ingraham, who was later Minister of Welfare, also sings her praises.

So whatever our reader thinks of Mr. Mitchell, don’t blame it on his mother. She was a fair-minded, decent lady.

We hold no brief for Mr. Mitchell.
