“The embattled Prime Minister may be eager for another term, but the Bahamian people are not.  He may think that he has done an excellent job for the Bahamian people, but they know that the PLP Government has been more concerned about taking care of their foreign allies and political supporters than the Bahamian people.  Their record stands for itself – junk bond status, endemic unemployment, and rising crime, which has led other countries to issue travel warnings, scandals, secret deals, and continued mismanagement and failures...

An Open Letter to the Prime Minister - Jan 16, 2017 - 9:40:23 AM

Dear Mr. Prime Minister:

I am not often one to get into public political commentary or debate but my heart is heavy.  As someone who has watched your political career over the past 40 years, and witnessing where we are today I could not resist re-reading George Orwell’s novel “Animal Farm”.  In fact as I watch your actions and those of your most ardent supporters the words of Mr. Orwell in another forum seems to ring true, “Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.”

Your reaction and those of your goons and cronies to Mr. Alfred Sears and his offering for the leadership of the PLP is very off-putting and smacks of a serious abuse of power...
