PRIME Minister Dr Hubert Minnis will leave the country for Brussels, Belgium Monday to officially open the Embassy of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas Mission to the European Union.

While there, the prime minister is expected to meet with the Secretary-General and Commission of Ambassadors of the African Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, and the European Commission’s Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management.

The Cabinet Office said in a press statement Friday a delegation will accompany Dr Minnis consisting of senior government officials, including Foreign Affairs Minister Darren Henfield; Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs Carl Bethel; and Minister of Financial Services, Trade & Industry and Immigration Elsworth Johnson.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Peter Turnquest will act as prime minister in Dr Minnis’ absence.

He returns to The Bahamas on Friday, November 15.

This is a most cruel joke when you consider the Minnis-led FNM government has demonstrated time and time again that they believe they are more accountable to the foreign globalist political elite than they are to the Bahamian people.

A large delegation on a very costly trip to establish a new very costly embassy in Brussels. Meanwhile we have Bahamians in Eastern Grand Bahama and Central & Northern Abaco who have been left absolutely destitute by Hurricane Dorian only a couple of months ago. Simply unbelievable and truly cruel!!

This is proof positive the Minnis-led FNM government is only concerned about governing by borrowing more and more money, growing the size of the government and increasing taxes and fees, and yes, electricity costs too, for the vast majority of struggling Bahamian people. And then there are all of those backroom deals with foreign investors that they seem to love so much, whereby the interests of the average Bahamian again get short changed in a most serious way.

Brussels is the H.Q. city of the WTO, and the H.Q. of the "appointed" leadership of the E.U. Not Elected, appointed.

How this seems to be a priority at this point in time is very concerning to me!
