Roberts 'In Fine Spirits' After Surgery

FORMER Progressive Liberal Party Chairman Bradley Roberts was yesterday said to be “in his usual fine spirits” following successful surgery in the United States, according to his successor in the post, Fred Mitchell.

In a statement circulated by the party yesterday, Mr Mitchell said he has spoken with Mr Roberts, 74, who was still actively “recovering” from an April 28 surgery.

Mr Mitchell, who succeeded Mr Roberts as PLP Chairman last October, said his predecessor was keeping up to date with “political and public policy developments at home”, and wanted party members and supporters to “stay the course”.

Mr Mitchell added: “I assured him that the party wishes him well and that we are praying for his full recovery.”

It is unclear why Mr Roberts required surgery, or how long he is undergoing treatment in the United States.

The veteran politician, who served in various posts during his public life, ended his tenure as party chairman on October 23.

Most Bahamians should ask why is Roberts so afraid of our healthcare system here in the Bahamas that he finds it necessary, like all of the other elitist politicians and their cronies, to flee to the U.S. to get first class medical care.

I wouldn't trust the health care in The Bahamas either after Dr. Sands has picked fights with all the nurses and doctors.

Sands met the problems.....he didn't create them. And they were all left there by Minnis when he served as Minister of Health under a previous Ingraham-led administration. If Minnis, as Minister of Health, could not handle our public healthcare problems, then I hold little to no hope of him being able to handle the many more problems facing our country.

Absolutely amazing that the politicians get medical care and educate all their children abroad, but they never cared to figure out how to do the same for the very people that enabled them to pay for it all!

These asinine failures should be made to suffer the same fate as the people they "served".

Call me insensitive, but I just couldn't care less. Legislation should be enacted to ensure that all of the political class be forced to go to PMH.

You are not the least bit insensitive here, but rather profoundly sensible, fair and balanced. As the saying goes: "What is good for the goose is good for the gander."
