Why ask people if they think that an action is supposed to receive its corresponding consequence or not? That's like asking people if they think a person should be prosecuted for the crime they commit. In our system of government, misleading Parliament is supposed to lead to either the resignation or termination of a Minister. If that does not happen, the system of government is being violated. Educate people on what is supposed to happen.

Mr. Davis misled Parliament and therefore must resign. In the least he was negligent and not doing his job. In the U.K. or Canada, this would not be a question.

In Jamaica or Trinidad this wouldn't be a question. We are well behind our Caribbean neighbours when it comes to following the guidelines set out by the Westminster system.

The Contractor took a serious chance and he lost big time. Mr: Davis said he was under the impression the contractor did have insurance. Some body is at fault. is it some one in his office or him/? My concern is that the accused is Dr Minnis relative, The first thing the Police should always do is seize the cell hone of all accused persons to see with whom they have been communicating.. This has happened before, Government contracts with no insurance. Why did this man burn down the building?

Because he is like the majority of Bahamians and has anger management issues. Bahamians act out they do not use their words. For you to insinuate that Dr. Minnis had anything at all to do with the fire is just wrong and show just how desperate the PLP is. They hire them and theirs at vastly inflated prices saying they are giving a "hand up" while what they are doing is corrupt, cronisum, and in reality kicking every Bahamian in the teeth. They help their people while the vast majority of Bahamians get nothing. CRIMINAL. They govern for THEM, how about they govern for ALL. The PLP is a mafia type organization that looks out for itself and those in it's circle, not the Bahamian people. How any logical person can not see this is beyond me.

We should really not go there with regard to Dr. Minnis. I am quite sure he had nothing to do with the fire. Neither did Mr. Davis. However, Mr. Davis was responsible for the BAMSI project. And he (or one of his subordinates) did not do their job. Ultimately, the blame lies with him and he deserves the fall out from it.

'My concern is that the accused is Dr Minnis relative" - Lord save us. What's wrong with you???? Is there any hope for this country with thinking like this?

I see that Brave, his wife and birdie have voted no.

Responsible Parties: Mr Davis, Mr Gray, the Project Manager, the person who authorized the release of the cheques, Audley Hanna.

They are ALL responsible. They should ALL be fired. The buck ultimately stops with Brave Davis, he is in charge of OUR money on this project. If he and Minister Gray are telling us they need a building to burn down so they can do their jobs, we must get rid of them now. They are both a waste of space Minister Gray knows NOTHING, he's worse than Perry Christie.

From PM Christie down, everyone involved in this mess should be FIRED because none of them will resign on their own--and PM "Give-Them-A-2nd-Chance" Christie won't fire anyone therefore nothing will happen, nothing will change. Like an ostrich, he believes if he sticks his head and ignores the problem it will go away (because the people will forget). Sad.

That this country has been misruled by a very small bunch of kleptocrats is a given. These politicaly exposed persons and the political elite have been living high on the hog off of everyday Bahamians since independence. Because these people only care about themselves the country has suffered. Our infastructure is in a shambles, just look at BEC. Our environment is being destroyed, garbage everywhere, poaching, landfill fire. Our people destroyed, crime, under education, unemployment. People are so politically stuck that when presented with clear neglect, mismanagement, and corrupt practices, they actually defend the politicians. Are Bahamians as a people, either that corrupted themselves or are they so enslaved by crookedness that they will accept defend acts that should never be tolerated? I actually thought that Bahamians where smarter than this. Just by the above poll and the willingness of a good portion of people to actually think what has been exposed is in any way OK is direct proof that there is no future in this country. I am determined that I will be the last of my family to be abused by the government of The Bahamas.

Westminster? That does not apply in The Bahamas - There are no consequences and if you say sorry your forgiven within a week - Why fire Davis if you keeping Miller?

In a REAL country this would not be up for opinion polling. In Australia a state Premier resigned because he did not follow protocol and misled a state inquiry over a $3000 bottle of wine. Read it here if you don't believe me http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-2704…">http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-2704… Davis will never do the honourable thing and Perry Gladstone Christie does not have the fortitude needed to run this country, except for into the ground where it is firmly headed at breakneck speed.
I weep for the country of my birth. The fact is we are going to hell in a hand-basket attached to a speeding bullet. Bend over for the CLUSTERBAMSI... more of the same is on the way, except they call it hope and help and believing in Bahamians! I call it SECRETS, LIES and SHELL COMPANIES owned by close family members of Government ministers.
