EDITOR, The Tribune.
We must size up two men to lead the country. A doctor and a lawyer. Where they differ is on character.
The Prime Minister has advanced a poor people’s agenda that has lifted many out of not just poverty, but misery.
PLP leader Brave Davis is running hard to get away from his miserable record of doing little for poor people while always being a champion for the rich and powerful.
He sat in parliament for decades as the representative for Cat Island, the spiritual home of culture. For five of those years he was Deputy Prime Minister and, in great irony, was Minister of Works and Urban Development.
Yet it took a brave decision by Hubert Minnis to kick-start a project to get piped water into Cat Island. Water was not on Davis’ agenda.
Apparently, neither is respect for the voice of the people. He co-engineered the gambling referendum and when the voters said no, he jooked us in the eye and reversed the will of the people.
He pledged to honour the outcome of that referendum then flip-flopped. Previously he supported the equal rights referendum inside parliament then trashed it when he got outside.
Cat Islanders who only now have running water know that Brave isn’t studying them.
Bahamians don’t need to roll the dice again to know that Brave can’t be trusted.
