LET’S BE BRAVE…REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO MINNIS

The nervous ones in the PLP who are walking on eggshells because in various constituencies there is one row or the other about who is going to be candidate should think carefully before they lose it.

STILL NO HOTEL, NO HOSPITAL, NO AIRPORT IN GRAND BAHAMA

The Free National Movement is feeling pretty good about itself these days.  They have gotten rid of the troublesome Lanisha Rolle, the disgraced sports minister.  The bump which the PLP got from that shock resignation was wiped off the front pages with a debate inspired by the PLP’s Picewell Forbes and his decision to quit.

MINNIS GOVERNMENT MOST CORRUPT IN BAHAMIAN HISTORY PART 1

Dear EditorI am totally convinced that when the political history of The Bahamas is objectively told, this Minnis led FNM administration will emerge as the singular most corrupt government administration of the party era.

THE PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE, TIME TO ACT

PETER WITHDRAWING HIS CANDIDACY: COWARDICE

The weekend of 6 February 2021, Peter Turnquest, the disgraced former Finance Minister, wrote this to his campaign team: “By now you would have no doubt heard the report that I have been advised by the party leader that I will not receive the nomination for East Grand Bahama.  “I assume that council will give […]

This comment first appeared in What’s App on 10 February 2021: Not too sure who this unelected self appointed group is celebrating BPC’s exploratory stoppage, but if they were to examine closely the following wording that they quote (below) from BPC’s release, they might wish to sit down and consider how globalists think, and the […]
