I can show you a many places up and down the Exuma cays that look about the same ..Obie is making political hay ..That's one reason its hard to market the different islands ,,they all look similar .From where I,m sitting I could get in my boat now and w/ in an hour or two show u 50 places that look like this ,,from The Exuma cays to the Jumentos or run across Exuma sound to Cat or Eleuthera ..Plus if it is privately owned ,,we are not a dictator ship that strips owners of their land
And just how does the government go about telling someone what to do w their property . Do you propose our broke government borrow to pay fair market value for Lighthouse point ..Wilchcombe and not so PLeasant Bridgewater need to pay back BOB before they voice their opinions .
Point one , if Obie was involved or getting a cut he would be telling us how good the deal is and how many jobs it would create .
Point two ,,this is privately held land and in a free society the owners have a right to do whatever they want w it .
Point three ,,if the government sees fit to get the land they have to pay fare market value for it like anyone else .If they do so through any other means it would send shock waves through any future people/companies thinking of investing.
You keep going on and on about Minnis , he maybe good he may be bad ,,but our slide to third world sh#thole did not start 2 years ago .On the family Island I Live on I went to the capital town and the main plaza ,bank etc today .I was going to take a picture of the beer bottles , Styrofoam cups from the number house ,take out containers etc but thought why bother ,,its just nasty ,,and this is an Island doing well,,very well ,,even the guest ask me about the litter ,,funny ,,Green turtle cay ,hope town etc are postcard picture worthy and spotless ..We could get into name calling and arguments and tomorrow I will just walk around the town and post the pics ,,
We Bahamian politicians born of Bahamian parents ,Bahamian union leaders born of Bahamian parents ,Bahamian board members born of Bahamian parents ,Bahamian linemen and generator mechanics born of Bahamian parents have not been able to provide reliable electrical power generation and distribution at a reasonable price for 30 to 40 years .We have not been able to provide half way reliable power at the cost of a kings ransom while BEC ran up 350 million in debt ..I no longer give one wooden nickel why .Let Shell N A come in for the love of all that is good .Apart from the hiccups in the beginning b/c of junk equipment and union push back Cell service is better now that a private company owns the majority of BTC and we even collect more revenue .Prices are better w the competition from Aliv .If we continue to settle for this and b/c of false national pride want BEC to continue to be a government company run by us ,,We are gooses .I think 30 to 40 years is enough .We are incapable of providing reliable power at any price and I no longer care why ,,PLP ,,FNM ,,UNION I don't give a sh%t .I dating a woman from Miami her power went off twice in twenty years and one of those times was hurricane Andrew ..
Anecdotal sip sip .If the other companies feel this is true there is redress in the press and the courts , and I,m not concerned about companies connected to Frankie Wilson ...
Back to?? ,,for forty years if you weren,t wealthy enough for a generator you kept candles or flashlights handy .
That's a lot of conjecture on your part .I remember the Ramsey thing and that was the reason Ingraham ditched F Watson . Ingraham also ditched his boy from Freeport when he got slimy .I don,t know yet if Minnis is straight or not .You are not a Minnis fan , if he is as crooked as you suggest the facts will come out they always do .Anecdotal evidence and opposition sip sip are not facts .There is always interference from the PMO ,that's how our system works , as in any country or business the decesions come from the top .You are anti Minnis so your post and inclinations will look for things .I have yet to make my mind up .In forty years we have been unable to produce reliable power if Miinis pulled the trigger and brought in a company that can my hat is off to him .
The public was giving a chance to buy shares in the port ..As I recall the bidding process was handled ,vetted , by an accounting firm .If companies felt it was unfair there are avenues of redress .However after the Travolta saga and Izzie w Baha mar ,as a foriegn firm I may not waste time in our courts .Truth be told from the custom officer ,to the policeman ,to the judge to our politicians ,just say many of us are lacking in integrity
there was bidding , however ,I don,t care ,FNM ,,PLP .I know we have proven w out a doubt we can not produce reliable power at a reasonable price ,,we have been proving this every year for forty years,,I know longer care why .Time to let someone who can do it ..
