FNM JUNK:  this picture circulated widely on social media showing FNM paraphernalia for the next general election.  It dropped off a truck carrying it to storage and ended up in the streets. That is where junk belongs dumped on the open road.  Our photo of the week.  It’s called poetic justice.

THE NASTY AD CAMPAIGN OF THE FREE NATIONAL MOVEMENT

The Free National Movement and Hubert Minnis have been running a set of nasty ads about the Leader of the PLP Philip Brave Davis since 2 July 2021.
