Terneille Burrows: No More Blind Trust in Government. Unseal the Deal. - Aug 25, 2016 - 2:22:29 PM

terneille-burrows-Eduardo-Jimenez.jpg
While the Attorney General admonishes Bahamians to trust the Prime Minister in regards to the details of the latest Baha Mar agreement, I say that the citizenry should mobilize every tool available to us to demand the information be revealed. The billion-dollar question is whether the electorate agrees.

According to the July 2015 winding up petition initiated by the Bahamas government and filed against Baha Mar, "The government of The Bahamas and its entities have provided an estimated $1.2 billion worth of concessions to the respondents to facilitate the development."Since the current (and previous) government administration of The Bahamas sought fit to grant such generous allowances to this development over the years, will we the people demand transparency to be able to better scrutinize the transactions of those negotiating on our behalf?

FNM on Baha Mar: "Only dictatorial and dishonest Governments do the peoples' business in the dark of Night' - Aug 25, 2016 - 1:57:31 PM

The Free National Movement condemns in the strongest possible terms the suspicious and undemocratic decision by the Christie led PLP government to request the Supreme Court of The Bahamas to put beyond the reach of the Bahamian people the Agreement which it signed with China EXIM Bank to complete the Baha Mar project. The Government must be aware that the agreement that they signed was executed by them on behalf of the Bahamian people and as a result, the Government has a sacred duty to make the agreement public and not keep the details from the people.

Only dictatorial and dishonest Governments do the peoples' business in the dark of night and hope that their deals never see the light of day.

We wish to put both the Government and the Chinese on notice that once in office an FNM Government in the sunshine will expose the agreement to the Bahamian people if this Government does not, so that any part of it that is not in the interest of...

With Sickle Cell Month on the horizon in September, the newly revamped and reorganized health advocacy group received a donation from the bank to assist in its education and awareness activities. 

Originally established in 1982 by Dr. Patrick Roberts at a time when nearly 1 in 400 Bahamians tested positive with the Sickle Cell Trait, the organization tapered out for two decades due to a combination of challenges and expenses. Now under the management of Lady Sonja Lynette Longley, the group has returned reinvigorated, touting ambitious goals for its first few years...

The Government must be aware that the agreement that they signed was signed by them on behalf of The Bahamian people and so the Government has a duty to make the agreement public. Only dictatorial and corrupt Governments do the peoples' business in the dark of night and hope that they never see the light of day but we wish to put both the Government and the Chinese on notice that we will put the sunlight on the agreement and cancel any part that is not in the interest of The Bahamian people...”

Pam Burnside: Down the Rabbit Hole, Part 3 - Aug 24, 2016 - 3:43:40 PM

“AbracaDAbra!” shouted the Emperor perched atop a golden podium securely mounted on the armoured tank. With a flick of his voluminous red silken cape and a dramatic flourish (worthy in motion to his junkanoo shuffle) of the magic wand held firmly in his right hand across his upturned silken black top hat, the air was immediately filled with thousands of sparkling fireworks shooting straight up into the darkened Moody night sky, along with plumes of thick white smoke befitting the importance of his announcement! He would not be outdone by the fireworks of the recent Olympics, especially since he was wearing his golden replica!

His subjects, pressed excitedly against the metal barriers, turned their heads upwards to the sky to watch in jaw-dropping amazement as the stupendous fireworks erupted and crackled in thunderous abandon against the darkness...

During the last Budget presentation the Government snuck a provision through that businesses would have to apply for a Tax Compliance Certificate in order to be paid by them for goods and services.

In essence, if your taxes are not paid, the government will not pay you.

Seems like a reasonable proposition until you make application and find out that if a courier company imported something on your behalf and has not paid the import taxes you cannot get paid by the government. And it doesn’t matter if you paid your courier company...
