The FNM Chickens Out Of The Debate?

No reason was given but the press reported that the series of debates organized by the University of The Bahamas with all of the political parties has hit a snag because the champion competitor has taken the chicken run and decided they will not participate. We think the University is wrong to include the extra parliamentary parties in the debates with the two champions but  no decision about it has been announced by the PLP.  The first debate on youth is scheduled for 4 May 2021.

BAHAMIANS ARE NOT FOOLED BY FNM FAKE SHOW

A smart and strong Kemp Road woman spoke for thousands of Bahamians on a New Providence based television station Friday,  16th April, 2021.  She noted that our people are not moved by FNM government representatives showing up for the cameras after the hurt, pain, and damage have slayed our communities.   Prime Minister Minnis and this failed FNM government remain sadly detached from the challenges being experienced by Bahamians everyday.   Our nation is witnessing the collapse of a government that rose to power on pretty promises and a load of lies.   Bahamians are jobless,  hopeless, terrified by lawless activities, and are

Fred Mitchell Responds To Brensil Rolle

12 April 2021 Today Brensil Rolle, Minister for the Public Service, lowered the standards of the House of Assembly by engaging in dog do do talk in the House of Assembly about me. The Minister doesn’t have to be the snivelling coward that he appears to be and hide behind House of Assembly immunity. The files are all there. He doesn’t have to guess. He knows the law. Instead he engages in filth and disinformation. If you bad come outside and repeat the lies and innuendoes. I would happily oblige him and purchase a poop scooper for him and his
