Nassau, Bahamas — Bahamas Press wonders where does the PLP think they are headed with Perry Christie at the helm of the Party, particularly following this breaking news of Malcolm Adderley leaving the Parliament. Some hope it would mean a return to the halls of governance. Christie we know will do no such thing and hear why.
Readers should remember how we at Bahamas Press warned the PLP Christie spell TROUBLE for the institution. We since January 2008, became extremely concerned about how young politicians who became increasingly disenchanted with the Party. The young progressives were leaving, the branches were closed and up and coming politicos deep inside the party began exiting faster than jets lined to leave a runway.
We saw just before the 2007 elections current South Abaco MP, Edison Key, tendered his resignation and ran with open arms to Hubert Ingraham. Christie said then he did not know Key had sent a letter to his office, LATE AGAIN! Then we saw a future voice in the PLP young Kenyetta Gibson, walked across the floor of the House, calling Christie, “Arch–mediocrity, captain of all things small and petty, master of all things which are insignificant and void.” Gibson promised to never to return to the PLP as long as the PUSSY CAT led the Party. Others joined in an exodus from the branches and
shared the same concerns.
What is troubling now is the fact another member will resign and this time force a by-election. Adderley we know will leave the Lower House forcing Christie into the greatest political acid test of his lifetime.
Early this year during a debate in the Parliament Ingraham made a snap promise to Christie saying: When I go I’m taking you with me.
Boy, and now we hear Adderley is giving up his seat forcing a by-election. However, we are not surprise at this at all. Had that hard head Pussy Cat listened to BP, Adderley would not be so important today. In June of 2008 when Christie was walking through the Straw Market, the same one he neglected to build in his five years as PM, we stated, “Malcolm Adderley, PLP MP for Elizabeth, could not be found.”
Again in July of 2008 when Christie heard Ingraham in the House saying, “We ga knight him [Christie],” we stated in that article, “Yes, Hubert will knight Christie because he cannot fire Malcolm Adderley, as the MP for Elizabeth is on the Ingraham government’s payroll and answers to the minister of finance. Christie has allowed this to happen whilst PLPs look on scrapping for votes in Parliament. Who in this country believes a sitting member of Hubert Ingraham’s FNM will ever vote with the PLP on a bill?”
We knew this day was coming when Adderley would shake the PLP.
The Greenberg Quinlan Rosner report spoke to this same LAZY WUTLESSNESS character of the leader of the PLP. And the report warned the PLP of what will happen if it failed to change the party’s image. And that if it fails to CHANGE, the PLP will suffer another defeat in 2012. Christie has torn up the report with his ‘Da SNITCH’ was left telling the country, that’s old news. Hmmmmmm!
Now they say they are going into a by – election, and we say all being equal to what we know, the PLP may lose this one.
We would like to see a Paul Moss contesting that Elizabeth seat, but we know this will not happen because Christie has ‘DUTTY’ SPITEFUL WAYS!
