GBHRA: Is the PLP government reading your emails? - May 25, 2016 - 2:23:54 PM

In doing so, he also revealed that government’s access to citizens’ private correspondence goes far beyond STB to include the emails of other activist groups, parliamentarians and even the leader of Her Majesty’s Official Opposition –a fact which should strike fear and trepidation into all right-thinking members of this society...

Dr. Minnis Calls on Bahamians to Beware of More PLP Broken Promises - May 25, 2016 - 1:49:29 AM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the Prime Minister’s upcoming address on Baha Mar:

“The people of The Bahamas beware! An election is imminent, so beware of the PLP’s outlandish promises. Tomorrow the Prime Minister plans to address the ongoing Baha Mar debacle. We can expect more overly optimistic declarations and commitments, yet never a concrete plan from the Prime Minister. The empty rhetoric which he will offer once again tomorrow will not get Baha Mar open. Nor will it bring the thousands of jobs this Government has promised.”

“But with an election sometime soon Bahamians should expect to see lots of PLP organized feel-good photo ops and boisterous declarations of false progress. Unfortunately, the people have seen it before, during the last election the PLP offered up a long list of false promises. Where is the mortgage relief they promised...
