It was not unchecked Haitian illegals , we have been selling our country to them since independence ,What political general did not have 10 to 50 Haitians on permit as indentured servants kicking back to them .How many immigration officers shook then down every Friday ,payday . F Hanna build a multi million dollar business w, Haitian labour b/c of his connections .Stubbs made a great living at Potters Cay getting Haitians straight ,,by the time he died he must have had 10,000 farm workers .
Companies don,t want BPL ,but they did bid to build own and operate their own plant and guarantee a 28 cent a kl rate .The thing is you have to get them to pick up the family islands also where the smaller ones are not profitable .A number of international companies bid to do this the PLP just would not pull the trigger .Bannister is really saying this ,he knows no company would pay one red cent for BPL , the companies were willing to invest 500 million to build a new plant ,Bannisters just working the numbers ,,maybe let then charge 30 cents a kl and pick up 100 million of the debt .Believe me they are well aware no one on this planet would pay the Government one red cent for BPL
There is big kickbacks in buying planes ,,ask them why in 2014/15 they did not buy the new ATR,s direct from the manufacturer but from some broker in South America
Actually this generator was not the one of the ones Fred Ramsey got kick backs for ..Remember the FNM won in 1992 ,,the Watson /Ramsey thing happened much later .The generators they too k kick backs on may have ben fine ,its the upkeep PowerSecure is talking about .This generator was installed in 1992 and they are telling you the work it needed in 2015 .Although Watson/ramsy pulled a crooked deal ,I don,t think you can blame 40 years of unreliable ,high priced electricity on them getting kick backs on the purchase of two new well produced Korean generators .
Someone high up in the PLP was getting kickback in U S dollars as part of that high salary
I will bet you she did not keep all of the 24,000 a month ,bet you about 10 grand or more of that went as kick back in US .PowerSecure and the PLP were involved in a well oiled skim to loot BEC ,a company half a billion in debt ,w outdated equipment that is only keep afloat by the Bahamas taxpayer and our ability to borrow money as a nation
You think PowerSecure walked away w all of that 9 million they got paid ..I will beat you dollars to donuts money was deposited in US accounts for the top PLPS that approved the power secure deal .This was a classic skim ,the usual when B Bethel is involved ,,PowerSecure and the PLP upper cast split that 9 million they paid powersecure . Just like all the foreign consultants they hired ,even on the numbers baloney ,,just a way to get kick backs in foreign banks and currency ..
if the PLP won they still would not be paying
Not really , what do you think top PLP were getting in US dollars in a US bank from PowerSecure ,,both PowerSecure and the top of the Christie lead government were reaping in the benefits on the backs of the average Bahamian .Wherever B Bethel goes there is a skim for the top of the PLP ,Pindling /Christie lead faction paid in foreign currency ,usually US . They did not trick Christie it was a well oiled looting of the Bahamian public , w a way for PGC etc to get US dollars ..
Go rouge nation and see what find of investors you get . Only people that want to wash dirty money and don,t mind giving politicians 20 % and toten in and out in fake diesel tanks on boats .You think Atlantis ,Baha mar , Joe Lewis ,Sandals ,Beaches ,John Bull ,Frankie Wilson , Commonweaith building supplies etc etc want their capital sitting in a New York clearing bank for months on end to be scrutinize every time they order a trailer of goods ,,lets not even talk about financing etc ,,You want the Bahamian dollar to be worth 20 cents on the US ,,go rogue .Face it we are not China ,, or The US or the European union ,the big dogs always set the rules .And your nonsense about IMF ,IDB lending us money so they can collapse and get our resources cheap ..Its us that go to them hat in hand ,,w/ Cuba closed and the tourism we have done in the last forty years we never had to borrow a dime ,However when 1 in 4 people work for the public treasury and whats left over is skim off and teefed ,,where else you going to keep borrowing to keep teefin ..We will see i f Minnis is straight ,but I figure from 2012 to 2017 a billionj YES billion to two billion was out right stolen ,,geez 200 to 300 million walk out the fron t door of BOB
