‘Fnm Can’T Ask For Apology From Anyone’


PLP Chairman Bradley Roberts.

PLP Chairman Bradley Roberts said the Free National Movement has no moral authority to demand an apology from anyone, as he called on Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis and the FNM to apologise on behalf of the governing party for what he sees as various transgressions and misdeeds over the years.

In a statement released on Monday, Mr Roberts among other things called on Dr Minnis to “practise what he preaches” and apologise for sitting around the Cabinet table when the Ingraham administration negotiated the “fire sale” of the Bahamas Telecommunications Company.

Mr Roberts painted the “assortment of characters” that make up the Minnis team as being unsavory.

“The FNM will dig your eye out while denying any knowledge of the same,” Mr Roberts claimed. “They are the adulterous woman King Solomon described in the book of Proverbs:

‘Such is the way woman. She eateth, wipeth her mouth and says I have done no wickedness.’ They continue to prance around like peacocks telling the Bahamian people they are as pure as the driven snow while pointing the finger of accusation at everybody else.

“Minnis must deal honestly with the (alleged) corruption within his ranks first before pointing the finger. If he says he is cleaning corruption in government, then he must act accordingly. This political charade and PR stunt he is orchestrating is nothing more than a corrupt abuse of state power to persecute his political opponents for purely political reasons,” Mr Roberts added.

“Minnis must also not be allowed to get away with this nonsense about the PLP should apologise. The FNM is in no moral position to demand an apology from anybody. They should be busy atoning for their sins perpetrated on the Bahamian people. The devil cannot get away with calling everybody else a sinner while his sins go unchallenged and unpunished.

“The devil is always in the details just as the devil is in fact a liar.”

Last week, Progressive Liberal Party Leader Philip “Brave” Davis admitted his party made mistakes and lost the public’s trust during its last term in office, but did not give an outright apology for the PLP’s actions.

In response, Dr Minnis said he was waiting on Mr Davis to say the words “I am sorry” for the decisions of the Christie administration.

Mr. Roberts needs to be reminded no one is stopping him from going to the police with any evidence he may have regarding criminal conduct on the part of past or present elected officials and their cronies whether they be of FNM or PLP persuasion. Either he should put up or shut up, or, as we like to say locally: If ya can't fish, then keep ya trap shut and cut bait!

Mr Roberts, your memory is either short or confused. The previous government that you support wasted money like never seen before, incurring a huge debt that this and the next generation will have to pay, notwithstanding a repackaged PLP getting re-elected and continuing to waste money. Poor people and the fast disappearing middle class struggled to feed their families with even staples costing a fortune by adding VAT to everything and what do we have to show for this sacrifice -NOTHING. Projects were mismanaged, not put out to tender, jobs given to supporters even when there was no actual work to do, and the countries financial status being downgraded. Carnival failed, BAMSI is a costly joke, Bahamasair a financial money pit along with BOB. Nothing to apologise for?

The Bahamian people were long ago abandoned by the "all for me" select group of corrupt greedy individuals who have for decades acted in unison to keep the PLP under their control as a tool for amassing great wealth at the people's expense. Bradley Roberts is near the top of the list of those despicable individuals. No Bahamian in their right mind would ever want anything to do with the PLP again. A new political party will hopefully emerge, because the DNA just doesn't cut it....mainly because of its leader.
