Pintard: Tennyson’s Racist Claim Wrong on Many Levels - Feb 11, 2016 - 1:52:15 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - On Monday February 8th I read with dismay and shock the remarks made by Former FNM Cabinet Member- Tennyson Wells in which he labeled “an opinion” of Member of Parliament for Montagu Richard Lightbourn as racist.  This flippant and ill-considered comment is false and unhelpful. As a former Cabinet Minister Mr. Wells must understand the strong emotions such a statement could potentially stir up in people of all ethnicities.

Given his renewed support for the FNM, Mr. Wells’s would be much more helpful concentrating exclusively on critiquing the PLP’s mismanagement of our Bahamas and recommending ways to help elevate our nation, which is the primary focus of the Free National Movement.

DNA: Watch the Company Your Children Keep - Feb 10, 2016 - 5:06:27 PM

Crime has really become a major hindrance in the growth and development of our Bahamaland!

Some blame the drug dealers, the number houses, the single-parent home and others put major blame on the government.

While we can all agree to some degree, all governments carry the responsibility of enforcing the laws that are on the books that govern their societies, and failure to do so often times can and will take away the natural fear of breaking these laws away from its citizens...

Lundy: DNA, The Better Vehicle for Change - Feb 8, 2016 - 5:19:22 PM

There is a powerful rhetoric that has always circled throughout the nation when talking about politics: We Need Change. We are tired. We are exhausted, we are angry; we are in the need of hope.

Dear reader, my fellow Bahamians, I am here to tell you that you are the change that you want to see in this country.

There is a misconception that the Government is “in charge” of this great nation. People seem to believe that they have absolutely no say when the government makes decisions that will affect their lives...

This week in the Bahamas Commentary by Elcott Coleby: Feb 1 - 5 - Feb 5, 2016 - 4:35:20 PM

This Day in Parliament:  The Bahamas Parliament met on Wednesday, 3rd February to debate a compendium of food safety and security bills designed to protect the health and integrity of the local food chain from diseases and contamination.

Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie took the opportunity under the agenda item ‘Statements by Ministers’ to update the House on the status of specific tax exemptions contained in the Hawksbill Creek Agreement (HCA) due to expire on Thursday, 4th February. These exemptions were under review for the past six months...

Pintard: FNM Denies Headline Accusations of Expulsion Attempt - Feb 2, 2016 - 10:01:29 PM

Nassau, NP, Bahamas 2nd January 2016-The Free National Movement is outraged about the completely false assertion that the Leader of the Opposition sort to expel four Members of Parliament from the Party for failing to abide by the wishes of the Executive and Council to refrain from discussing Party matters publicly.

During the Executive Committee meeting last evening the leader, Dr. Hubert Minnis, led the discussion about the need for team cohesion and steps being taken to forge greater Party unity. At no point did the leader or members of the Executive engage in any form of discussion about disciplining any Member of Parliament or Senator...

"Unfit to Govern!" - Feb 2, 2016 - 7:28:14 PM

Over the past few weeks Bahamians have watched members of government and the official opposition, men and women who were elected to be about the business of the people, squabble publicly like a group of unsupervised toddlers.

For months now, the governing side has struggled to recover from defections in its own ranks all while floundering under the weight of the PM’s broken promises on addressing crime or the stagnant Bahamar property. With each passing day, senior members of the Christie government continue to prove themselves less concerned with moving the country forward, and more so with the preservation of their personal political legacies.

Is Bahamas Development Bank Being Misused to Support BAMSI? - Jan 31, 2016 - 10:17:50 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - The PLP continues its trend of bad management of the people’s resources and failing to provide proper oversight in a number of crucial areas. These failures have contributed to the deterioration of the financial state of the Bank of the Bahamas (Inclusive of claims that PLP politicians were the recipients of large loans that we believe to be delinquent); missed deadlines and eventual closure of Baha Mar; Non compliance with regulatory requirements at BAMSI and The Pointe and the list goes on.

Bank reform is pivotal if we are to grow the Bahamian economy and empower small and medium size businesses. Reported political interference into the daily operations of the Bank of the Bahamas and the Bahamas Development Bank has resulted in substantial financial losses to the Bahamian people...

Former MP Pierre Dupuch Questions Shayne Gibson's Reasoning Regarding Proposed Health Plan - Jan 30, 2016 - 5:08:15 PM

Before the hecklers shout 'conflict of interest' let me say that the position I take now is the same as it was when I was Shadow Minister of Health from 1982-1992 (Ask the Prime Minister, he should remember). It is true that today I have a son, a daughter in law and a nephew who are doctors here. I have a sister who is a retired nurse in Canada, two grand-nieces who are doctors in Canada and a daughter who has her Masters in Nursing and is now training operating room nurses in Atlanta. The hands on knowledge I have gained from them only solidifies my position.

I read with horror Shane Gibson's comments published in the press under the headline, "National Health and Greedy Doctors." He stooped so low and lied so much that he could have walked upright under a snake's belly...

FNM National Executive Committee Recommends a full Convention to Central Council - Jan 29, 2016 - 11:32:45 AM

The general public is hereby informed that at a meeting held last night of the National Executive Committee of the Free National Movement at my invitation it was unanimously recommended to the Central Council of the Party that, pursuant to the Constitution of the Party, a full National Convention be held not later than the 30th November, 2016, at dates to be determined by the Central Council.

A Notice of Motion was thereafter tabled at the Council Meeting, and a vote on that Resolution, so tabled, will take place at or before the next regular Council meeting...

Parliamentarians met at 10am on Wednesday, 27th January 2016 to conclude debate on the resolution on the $33 million Public Financial Management System and Performance Management Project and the $20 million Citizen Security and Justice Program, both being funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

I wish to respond to a recent article published in the Tribune on my speech to stakeholders of the judiciary at the opening of the Legal Year on the second Wednesday of January. More specifically, I wish to respond to statements attributed to the National Chairman of the Free National Movement, Mr. Michael Pintard. A link to the Tribune article is provided for ease of reference.

Roberts remarks at PLP NGC Meeting 21st Jan 2016‏ - Jan 22, 2016 - 11:16:49 AM

Remarks Bradley B. Roberts Monthly National General Council Meeting Progressive Liberal Party at the Lynden Pindling Center Farrington Road, Nassau N.P. Bahamas on Thursday, 21 January 2016:

I extent a warm welcome to all for the first meeting of a brand new year and one that will be a very busy one as were prepare for General Election 2017.

I said in my address at the Bamboo Town Branch meeting last evening that former FNM Deputy Leader Brent Symonette, a senior party member and major financial contributor was in the press no longer than yesterday calling for an FNM convention this year to settle the Party’s leadership issues. I told that PLP Bamboo Town meeting Tuesday night that if Dr. Minnis is unable to secure the confidence...

FNM Launches Election Campaign - Jan 22, 2016 - 8:58:17 AM

S-DSC_3031.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - Amongst thunderous applause from a crowd of some four hundred people, FNM Party Leader, the Hon. Dr. Hubert A. Minnis, publicly introduced Frankie Campbell and Donald “Don” Saunders as the FNM candidates who will represent Southern Shores and Tall Pines Constituencies in the next General Election. The event fashioned like a mini rally and marked the official launch of the FNM Election Campaign, as Dr. Minnis called for the return of transparency and good governance, while FNM Deputy Leader Peter Turnquest led the charge for the Party to stay focused. The combined Southern Shores and Tall Pines Constituencies monthly meeting was held at Garvin Tynes Primary School on Tuesday, January 19, 2016...

FNM: Christie's Bamboo Town show was worn out and weak - Jan 21, 2016 - 6:30:28 PM

Prime Minister Christie put on yet another worn out and weak performance. This time,in the Bamboo Town Constituency on Tuesday night. After months of empty optimism about progress at Baha Mar, where his missteps contributed to at least 2000 Bahamians losing work, and contractors in dire need of millions of dollars owed to them for work done at the Cable Beach resort, the 'King of Promise' was found singing a desperate tone to Bamboo Town constituents and the wider Bahamas. Christie has fallen from things will happen "soon", good news "before Christmas", weekly "promising" talks with the Chinese banks, to now, I have written a letter to the Bank of China and told them "I am running out of time." This Christie led government continues to fail the Bahamian people and the time has come for real CHANGE in a NEW BAHAMAS...

This Day in the Bahamian Parliament: 30th January - Jan 20, 2016 - 9:22:21 PM

The House met on Wednesday of this week (20th Jan 2016) to debate two borrowing resolutions under section 3.1 ‘LOANS’ of the Inter-American Development Bank Act (IDB Act). One was a $33 million loan to fund “a program of public financial management and performance monitoring reform” according to the bill’s sponsor, the State Minister for Finance the Hon. Michael Halkitis.

The second resolution was a $20 million loan to fund an anti-crime and social intervention program called the Citizens Security Initiative. This initiative will lead to the establishment of a parole system for the orderly and managed reintegration of ex-convicts into society...

Pintard: Under the PLP the Bahamian People Lose - Jan 17, 2016 - 11:45:14 PM

Mr. Roberts, much like a number of his colleagues with Ministerial posts refuses to speak to the crucial issues which confront Bahamians. Instead, as is his usual practice, he concentrates on personal attacks on any citizen/expatriate who criticizes the way his Party governs or he rolls out his version of ancient history that is irrelevant to the state of affairs in our country.

Meanwhile, our people face an uncertain future with no sense of the government’s plan to work in concert with the private sector to grow the economy, increase Bahamian ownership and reduce the very high unemployment rate. As Mr. Roberts hired writers penned his most recent attack on me (and the FNM leader), thousands of the people (Who we swore to serve and protect) cower in fear of crime or seek to ...

DNA: McCartney Challenges Status Quo on Capital Punishment - Jan 17, 2016 - 11:30:33 PM

Having just endured what can only be described as the bloodiest and most violent year on record, Bahamians across the country, myself included, were utterly disheartened by the comments of the Chief Justice regarding the unlikely enforcement of the country’s laws on capital punishment.

According to Sir Hartman Longley, it would take a massacre; specifically the equivalent of the recent Paris terror attacks that claimed the lives of 130 people. In 2015 the murder count in the Bahamas exceeded that number by 18. Among that number were a young teacher gunned down at a stoplight in front of her child; and a teenager stabbed in the street by one of his peers...

Minnis: Christie continues to sell false hope on Baha Mar - Jan 17, 2016 - 10:27:17 PM

While thousands of Baha Mar employees remain out of work and Bahamian contractors are owed millions of dollars for work done at the Cable Beach resort, Prime Minister Christie continues to sell false hope. This is sad. For months now, Christie and his failing government have promised the completion of the construction and the opening of Baha Mar. Christie is a proven talk first, think later, leader. As a result of the government's missteps, Baha Mar has become a national burden and an international embarrassment for our country. Former Baha Mar board members have repeatedly presented the facts that connect Christie and his government's poor decision-making which created this daunting delay saga. At a time when so many Bahamians are hurting, we have a prime minister shuffling in dreamland, detached from the glaring realities. WE NEED CHANGE...

DNA: Drastic Times Call For Drastic Measures! - Jan 17, 2016 - 7:28:03 PM

There was once a time in our country’s history when men, women and children alike, had an abiding respect for the individuals tasked with the great responsibility of tending to the country’s spiritual needs. A time when the contributions of our religious leaders were valued and respected and their lives held as a shining example of the power of God working through men.

The daring home invasion of one such individual is a sad reminder that we no longer live in that time. During the early morning hours of January 14th, five armed men forced their way into the home of the beloved retired pastor of the Grace Community Church Rex Major; subjecting him and his family to what I can only imagine was a nightmarish experience.
