Fnm Would Lose An Election If Held Today

EDITOR, The Tribune

MAY 10th, 2017 for the FNM party it was a red letter day they had been voted in with a very large majority 35 against four but the electorate knew this was not the real world it was the proverbial Bahamian decision when they are fed up with Party ‘A’ just vote dem out. Did they want the FNM?

Many wondered after May 10th - pre-election Minnis and his principal cohorts had attacked the prospective opening of Baha Mar incredible as there were 5-6,000 votes but they attacked it even threatened in office they will rescind all agreements to the favour of Sarkis Izmirlian (Dionisio D’Aguilar’s buddy).

Their Manifesto possibly only read by the few sort and promised much most of which is carried out would have been a strong breathe of fresh air to what we had become accustomed with under Christie & Co, but that was not to come.

The Oban Energy charade - person signing a Heads of Agreement where he forged the signature of another.

RFP for the 80MW standby generators at BP&L clearly something was adrift here. Aggreko are still in place.

RFP for Prince George Wharf Cruise Port - seems to be heading into a scandal as many the Cabinet probably own shares in Arawak Port development - a whopping piece of conflict but in the eyes of some who care.

RBDF Patrol Craft - can’t keep them operational - going aground or worse.

BP&L Costs sky rocket and after the fire no assistance coming except the exemption from VAT - $91 million owed to BP&L unsure if that includes Government probably not.

Buying Our Lucaya for $65 million on certainly not the best of terms - can it be flipped without a massive $40m loss?

Transparency in governance - great commitment now lost in the morning Fog!

Nurses are only asking to pay them what is owed! Is that too much?

Then yesterday - it was bad enough before when PM Minnis scoffed off to the press he was rushing off to eat boiled fish but to basically ridicule the Unions to a level where they were insignificant by referring to his ‘priority’ in his mind will the Saxons win Boxing Day…the Unions were annoyed before that comment now they are really ready to make sure the. Saxons don’t win. Eight-Unions have certificates to strike - is this a rational position of the Head of Government?

To be Prime Minister there is a lot of serious responsibility and respect to the People…we have not seen that since May, 2017…The people are annoyed, furious a d if there was an election would throw the FNM out wholesale even their safe seats would loose.

But what would you replace them with ? God knows you have a short memory about PLP mismanagement, corruption, etc etc. At least the IMF has been impressed.

And herein lies the problem. Yes the FNM are doing foolishness but the PLP would be no better. We have 3.5 years left of this Government and if they continue as is they will lose, which unfortunately means the PLP which means no real change for the country. Hopefully either the FNM get their proverbial straight or another party with good candidates comes on the scene.

LOL! Bahamians have not grown beyond the race card when it comes to politics! A new strong, moral party is definitely needed. Sadly, much easier said than done. My only thought at this time would be for the best of the FNM, including current and former dissidents, and DNA to join forces under a new banner for the good of Country. That would likely be a slam dunk!

We are too damn picky with our politicians ......... Its just like Bahamian women looking for decent, responsible Bahamian men when 90% (of the men) have never had a father to show them how to respect/love/care for a woman ..... Our present crop of Bahamian politicians have no "father figures" to train them ....... they are only learning the old dirty street tricks from Pindling, Hanna, Ingraham, & Co .......... Can we ever reverse that???

It will take a miracle right now.

The PLP would win at least 25 seats. The DNA (doing nothing again) would win their favorite number ZERO seats.

Hope we wont wait until 2022. Can the GG please dissolve the House tomorrow? Please?

TMHunter---The GG cannot dissolve the house unless there is a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister by members of his own party--It's not gunna happen!!

The FNM party told a lot of lies and cunning plots to win the election toggie and boggie, the "We March," the release of Mr: Fitzgerald e mails . the BAH MAR and the Chinese bad mouthing .VAT was bad. then they increased VAT.

The PLP Government is responsible for the Middle class.. The FNM Government will destroy the middle class. The peoples time voters voted for them. They should all relax and enjoy the ride.

the FNM won because of the corruption of the PLP and their gross mismanagement of the economy. Plain and simple!


birdiestrachan 1 year, 2 months ago

Corruption ? Mismanagement of the economy ? Another FNM lie. College of the Bahamas URBAN Renewal . opening of BAH MAR all PLP.. the NHI and the Air space are visionary PLP Ideas. BAMASI is also a good idea. just to name a few.
