Did Hubert Ingraham bring the violence and mayhem with him from his vacation in the Caribbean?



The changing faces of an angry man who is prime Minister of The Bahamas (Hubert Ingraham).

Nassau, Bahamas: Word is that Hubert Ingraham is back in the capital and though no formal word has yet confirmed that to be true, one can feel the heaviness all over the city again. A murder occurred in the Coral Habour area for the first time in weeks around 9PM on Monday night. The incident quieted the silence of murder in the country becoming number 43. Since Hubert Ingraham left for Haiti on a Caribbean Cruise not a single violent episode occurred. But what was even more tragic was how a Grand Bahamian lost his life on the streets of Grand Bahama in another mangled vehicle. (*SEE PHOTO BELOW)

An eleven year old awardee of the Governor General Student’s Award has committed suicide in an inner city on Tuesday. Devante McPhee was discovered around 3PM hanging from a belt strapped around his neck, in the back of his home. The young man was discovered by neighbours with lifeless body swinging from the metal clothe line. Area residents removed his body from the strap before police arrived to the scene. The young man was scheduled to begin junior high school in September. Police are treating this incident as a accident.

later yesterday afternoon another man was stabbed about the body on Rupert Dean Lane.

The peace was broken all of a sudden now that Hubert Ingraham is back in the country. We were the first to say when he left the country, the island felt lighter. Even Tommy Turnquest amid all the quietness felt it was safe to report how quiet the city was, at a luncheon on last week Wednesday. Perhaps the Minister of National Security spoke too soon.


The Chevy Trailblazer on Grand Bahamas involved in Tuesday morning’s fatal accident. The vehicle damaged a concrete utility pole which further collapse crushing the vehicle, with the driver’s body trapped inside. Bahamas Press again says to all Bahamians DRIVE SLOW, SAVE GAS AND LIVES!


  1. lollllllllllllllll…..Morehands you better stop!!! Interesting observation…think the criminals were busy watching the Olympics for real….possibly on stolen TVs …… lollllllllllllllllllllll …….

    I feel HI needs holy water and oil for true though….lolllllllllllllllll

  2. Whoa!! I have no beef with HAI but if BP journalism is actually correct this time, this some serious coincidence. We might need to get some Holy Water or Holy Oil and anoint our leader. Where all the prayer warriors?

    Let’s not blame HAI though, Bahamians were just too caught up with the Olympics last week to commit crimes and to drive recklessly at night. Everyone knows that the olympics only get good after midnight but since all the Bahamians getting knocked out the games, there is no more reason to stay home after dark, so we back to our mischievous ways again. Ha ha ha ha. 🙂

  3. Yes, he brought back mayhem and violence with him……after all he was in Haiti. Why is he so quiet?

    Paul Moss is on about the EPA….what do you all think about Paul Moss for PLP leader?

  4. To The Bahamian Press.

    As can be seen in the article below in today’s Jamaica Gleaner, St. Lucia will not sign the EPA on September 2, 2008. This position is opposite the Bahamas since Minister Laing says they intend to sign on that date. He has also said that this agreement has been a collective effort by the Caribbean and if one nation does not agree, then the remainder nations cannot proceed…”all must agree” he said. Well, we will wait to see is position now.

    The article further exposes the insensitively of this government; they are still not prepared even to admit that there are real concerns with this agreement. We in BARF are grateful to leaders of the Caribbean who have shown tremendous courage under fire to speak out against this agreement and their willingness not to proceed. If only our leaders had a mustered seed measure of this leadership.

    Yours truly,
    Paul Moss
    ST LUCIA – Gov’t to delay signing EPA
    published: Wednesday | August 20, 2008
    CASTRIES, St Lucia (CMC):
    The St Lucia government Monday said it would delay signing the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with the European Union.
    Prime Minister Stephenson King said that his administration’s new position follows a recent statement made by the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, as well as the need for the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries to further review their position.
    “Based on the advice we have been receiving from several quarters we, as members of the Caribbean Community, are now in a better position to say let us slow down a minute and engage in a further review of the real value of the EPA to the region,” King said.
    “We are to appeal to the president of France to meet with us and consider some areas of concern and see whether we can get the European Community to under-stand and support our position,” he added.
    The signing of the EPA, which was negotiated between the European Union and the Caribbean Forum (CARICOM) countries that also includes CARICOM, is scheduled for September 2 in Barbados.
    But there has been much opposition to the accord with trade unions, academics and some Caribbean states, notably Guyana, calling for a further review of the package.
    The main opposition St Lucia Labour Party (SLP) and other political and civic groups here have called on the King administration to postpone signing the agreement. They have also called for a parliamentary debate on the issue.
    Hold back
    King said that with the decision to hold back on any early signing of the agreement, “we can perhaps take up the opposition’s recommendation that we hold a debate on the measure.
    “At the end of the day, the decision to hold back on the signing is in response to world demands – those of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the challenges that small nations like ours face as a result of the articles of the agreement and the very conditions set by the WTO,” King said.
