Letters to the Editor


Is Oban deal all it seems?

GOVERNMENT transparency in how Government is doing business was one of the big election issues for the FNM - remember all the noise almost blaspheming that went on over the privacy of the Agreements on Baha Mar and The Pointe now two projects which the FNM - Minnis/D’Aguilar have taken as theirs and never speak bad about them.

Show your true self

The events that transpired in the House of Assembly on February 7th are well documented.

Back to the same old

ON May 10, 2017, many Bahamians forgot party loyalty as they voted for a change in government, a step they felt was needed for the good of the country. A change was in order they thought, and, given various promises made by the new government it was felt that a change would come.

Parliament tit-for-tat

WE have had three one term governments since 2002. One of the reasons for this has to do with the politicians’ disconnect with the electorate. They do not understand the things which matter to the people, like jobs and the desire for visionary leaders who could take the country to the next economic and socially secured level.

Where’s the Bahamians?

CABINET took a break and I suggest wasted their time visiting The Pointe site at the British Colonial as they did not discover that there are very, very few Bahamians working on the construction as we speak.

The face of misogyny

GLENYS Hanna Martin single handedly took on the thirty-four at every sitting of the current session of the House of Assembly. She was doing such a good job fighting for the little man, that Halston Moultrie, the Speaker, of the House of Assembly decided to help them.

Stagnation of The Bahamas

I would appreciate my letter being published as an open letter to the Deputy Prime Minister.

Speaker’s non-apology

THE Vote of No Confidence brought by the erstwhile “Magnificent Four” of the new PLP, led by our leader, the Hon Philip ‘Brave’ Davis, QC (PLP-Cat Island, Rum Cay & San Salvador), against the Speaker of the House of Assembly, has been debated and defeated. Of course, no sensible observer of this whole exercise expected such a motion to succeed in view of the excessively large majority commanded by the governing Free National Movement in the House.

Symonette has to go

IT is truly agonising watching people major in minor issues while minoring in major issues.

Speaker planned comments

MR Speaker’s outburst was politically planned... there is no doubt.

Shame on PM

WHY couldn’t Prime Minister Minnis take the positive initiative in the House this morning and apologise for the issue with the Speaker, Moultrie and his MP Ms Emmanuel?

Constitution cannot back illegal act

In February 2012, using easy to follow examples, I explained why children born to illegal migrants are not constitutionally entitled to be registered as citizens of The Bahamas.

Replace the Speaker now

The following is an open letter to the Prime Minister.

Say VAT? It's voodoo ecomomics

I am becoming increasingly disillusioned with the path this country is on. Our leaders seem to have no clue about how to run a country or more simply, how to prioritise their responsibilities. They are failing at managing the economy, crime, health and immigration, just to name a few.

Electric supply holding us back
