PLP Chairman Bradley Roberts called on radio talk show host Darold Miller to provide evidence to support renewed allegations that web shop owners contributed to the party’s electoral campaigns.

Mr Miller renewed claims that the Progressive Liberal Party made web shop owners pay for the general election, by-election, and referendum.

The claims follow a wider discourse on public disclosure, according to FNM Chairman Darron Cash, who said on Friday that there should be full disclosure from the governing party.

On his radio show, Mr Miller said: “[PLP] make them pay for the general election, they make them pay for the by-election, they make them pay for the referendum, now they’re trying to throw them under the bus.”

In an emailed response to The Tribune, Mr Roberts said: “Darold Miller claims are untrue and your records will disclose Party Leader Perry Christie’s response on this bogus claim made in the past. I remind you that he who alleges must prove.”

On Mr Miller’s show yesterday, Island Luck CEO Sebas Bastian explained that he made contributions to candidates he chose to support directly.

Mr Bastian said: “I didn’t make any contributions to any political party as such, I made contributions to individual candidates. If I saw a young fella look like he’s gonna make a difference in Pinewood or San Salvador, if he needed sodas or some funding, I donated.”

He added: “I never needed political favours, I didn’t come up under any political regime so the notion that I have to back some political regime to ensure my success is ridiculous.”

In an interview with The Tribune, Mr Cash said that denial without supporting documentation from the PLP was not surprising.

Mr Cash said: “It has long been FNM’s view that the general election of 2012 was fuelled by numbers money and that the PLP are indebted to them lock stock and barrel. The big question still remains is to what degree is the Prime Minister personally accountable to number bosses.”

Mr Cash also called on the government to disclose the earnings and arrangements made by Prime Minister Perry Christie and Deputy Prime Minister “Brave” Davis as lobbyists for Bahamas Petroleum Company, before they were the government.

He added: “As we await debate on oil drilling we have to address the fact that both the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister were paid lobbyists for Bahamas Petroleum Company, the entity to which they granted oil exploration licenses.”

“The Prime Minister cannot expect the Bahamian people to turn a blind eye to that,” he said adding that in his opinion “they are compromised on oil drilling and compromised when it comes to making decisions even when it comes to number houses – that’s why they’re making such a mess of it.”

After his morning live on air benediction Comrade Talk Show host "Benny Hinn" Darold announced that tomorrow morning he will be staging a mass distribution of Flags and T shirts to all Bahamians who feel they are entitled to a bigger piece of the Freedom To Gamble Pie? He'll also plans on handing out a Walking Cane for a physically challenged individual? Like I keep on saying you, just can't make this comical sh*t up if you tried?

So tomorrow morning be bushy-tailed and bright-eyed if you want your Darold free stuff? I might have missed the part about who was paying for all this free stuff?

Both these men's are snappy dressers. But neither one is no Lynden O. Pindling, OK. i rebuke that silly thought from your head's.

Comrade PKM Shack believe it or not I am listener fan of both Ortland and Darold.The free admission to tune-in daily for hours of comedic entertainment is much too irresistible for my pocket.

After 40 years of political stupidity, failure and corruption it is high time for us to take our country back from twiddle dee and twiddle dum.

We should very seriously examine the Bermuda example as they had the same 40 year PLP & UBP corrupt stupidity.

Bermuda resolved the problem by forming a 3rd party "One Bermuda Alliance" (OBA) which won the government December 2012 and IMMEDIATELY made sweeping changes to the benefit of the majority, not just the usual chosen few friends, family and lovers.

See their platform and decide for yourself: http://www.oba.bm/index.php/our-plan">http://www.oba.bm/index.php/our-plan
