strongly entreat the Bahamian public (particularly politicians and the

This is the first movie by the film division of Marvel Studios and shows
that there is hope for the House Of Ideas' comic book creations on the

adventure, comedy and drama to make it fun for anyone even if they are
not familiar with the character.

Sharon Turner on the Oban deal
- Mar 11, 2018 - 7:34:06 PM
That the government lacks effective public relations is
without question. But over the last nine months and most recently with
the now infamous Oban deal, the vice grip choking the collective hope
and blocking the tide of promised good governance and critically needed
national reform is not the absence of public relations, but the absence
of public respect.
When a Heads of Agreement is signed, it is not
a deal between the FNM and a developer or the PLP and a developer. That
Heads of Agreement is a legally binding agreement between the
Commonwealth of The Bahamas and a developer. This means all of us, you
and I, are bound to that developer...
