PLP chairman accuses FNM leader of creating hostility in beach protest

PLP Chairman Bradley Roberts accused Free National Movement (FNM) Leader Dr Hubert Minnis of creating an “atmosphere of hostility that cultivated in disorderly conduct” at a protest on Paradise Island yesterday morning.

On Monday, Dr Minnis urged concerned citizens to join him in a protest about a fence which was erected that day which blocked beach vendors’ access to Cabbage Beach.

Yesterday morning, the government announced that a temporary solution had been reached that would allow vendors to traverse through the beach path near the Riu hotel, which is on private property. Despite this, angry protestors tore down the fence around the easement yesterday.

“The record clearly shows that Prime Minister Christie quickly intervened in the Cabbage Beach access matter and the property owner, Access Industries, agreed to allow the vendors access to the beach until a permanent solution could be negotiated, that is a win-win arrangement for all stakeholders involved. In fact, the property owner opened the gates to allow the vendors to access Cabbage Beach.”

He said the entire debacle should be placed at Dr Minnis’ feet.

“He is a bad and desperate political actor and director. The PLP disassociates itself from this unfortunate spectacle as not being representative or typical of how the Bahamian government conducts the country’s national business.”

The PLP disassociates itself from a situation that they created with their lies and secret deals with foreigners and then expects credit for luckily fixing their collosal fukup? People really can't believe this mans BS

Create? No, the PLP has created the hostility. Take advantage of? Perhaps, but that is the nature of the dirty game you all play.

................................. "Prime Minister Christie quickly intervened"? .................................

Bradley Gargoyle Roberts said "The record clearly shows that Prime Minister Christie quickly intervened in the Cabbage Beach access matter"**

P.M. Christie had a full 60 days to "intervene" and totally prevent Monday and Tuesday's events from ever occurring.

Truth and fact is, PM Christie's dumb goats are totally out of touch with the electorate and never expected "usually docile" Bahamians to ever PUSH BACK!

Any "hostility" was generated as a direct result of Christie's suppressive policies which have pushed the people over the line of normal servility.....AND there is no return!

Huge, huge, congratulations to vendors, taxi drivers and all the people that FINALLY gathered together as Bahamians and pushed the government back into the box as "PUBLIC SERVANTS" where they belong!

Seems like this man and this government would sell out their own mothers, much less the Bahamian people. Bahamians have been robbed, bamboozled, overtaxed, misled, lied to, had and disenfranchised by this government more than any time in modern history of the Bahamas. Time to buy one of them ole fashion slop buckets and make sure their candidates have to wear raincoats when they come campaigning to your house and they have to take urgent showers when they leave. Just saying.

All of you dear readers please do not forget that a political organization is, by its very nature, designed to further the ambitions and/or fortunes of its members. As was asked some years ago :"Why should I join and support a political organization if there is no advantage for me in such an act?" Very often the aim of the organization is to oversee the transfer of wealth and/or influence to its members (or at least to some of its members) as opposed to those who are outside of the organization. If we are looking for altruistic motives on the part of a politician in modern times we shall have to look far and wide and very carefully. That is not to say that such do not exist but history provides us with too few examples among them the Roman farmer/general Cincinnatus and Mohandas K. Ghandi of India. However, even Ghandi admitted that "I am a politician pretending to be a saint, not a saint pretending to be a politician".

No I don't. He just started working for the Chinese potty mouth. The point is he's a lackey who does not put Bahamian interests first. And you embrace it like slaves
