Mitchell and 'misconceptions'

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Re: Mitchell in talks in US to clarify immigration ‘misconceptions’.
 The Tribune, November 19, 2014.

IN the late 1600’s, Sir Isaac Newton’s third Law of Motion determined that “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. It is now time our Immigration Department learned that simple fact. Bull-in-a-china-shop immigration actions in the past have produced reactions that now need to be reconciled and explained. Hence, the PM is rightly concerned about a “backlash” and Mr Mitchell has found it necessary to go to Washington, hat in hand, to meet with The OAS and CARICOM to explain away their “misconceptions”. In short, and in light of our past heavy-handed public immigration actions, others just don’t seem to trust us. Now we have to prove to the outside world that we can indeed handle the problem in a rational manner which is humane and fair. Hopefully, we can rely on our chief diplomat, Mr Mitchell, to be successful in restoring a measure of credibility to this country.

Propaganda over bailout of bank

The PLP propaganda machinery continues in full force.

LP gas rip-off

Propane is created with crude oil, butane, and gasoline. I started this letter by noting the contents of propane gas commonly known as LP gas (liquefied petroleum) because many years ago the price of LP gas went up a few times over the years and each time the reason for the increase was due to the rise in the price of oil by the barrel and it went up again in 2012 if I remember correctly.

One error in a fine article

I enjoyed reading Saturday’s recounting by Jim Lawlor (in his Writing to Remember column) of the story of Lloyd Johnson, the Harbour Island constable killed by an escaped prisoner many years ago. Mr Lawlor’s writings are always insightful and interesting forays into Bahamian history, inspired and informed no doubt by his father-in-law, the late ‘Brilander and Historian, Dr Paul Albury.
