Nassau, Bahamas — FNMs were in the cold last Thursday night once again letting Hubert Ingraham talk ‘Obeah’ over their heads. He shied away from taking responsibility for the chaos in the Bahamian economy. And in a round-a-bout way he rejected the idea of him having caused thousands of public servants in the Police, Immigration, Customs and others departments to be sent home.
False talking Ingraham could be heard suggesting his government never cancelled opportunity by suspending the Government Guarantee Loan programme for students. He could be heard arguing telling Bahamian it was not his government who plunged into darkness 9,000 BEC customers [Causing his Abaco Chairman to resign]. In short Ingraham suggested it was not the FNM government, who has overseen the poor management of the country’s crippling economic state never seen in our nation’s modern day history. He also suggested that is it was not his government who left education in shambles [but he forget how he fired Carl Bethel]. Is it the ZANU-PF Party of Zimbabwe since it isn’t you Ingraham? Ingraham is delusional to say the least.
In short, he suggestioned that it was not him who increased the largest TAX increase on Bahamians in our nation’s history [INCLUDING A TAX INCREASE ON THE BIBLE]. It was not him who has delivered the highest unemployment rate this country has ever seen. It was not him who generated the highest national debt on the backs of poor Bahamians now approaching; $4 Billion dollars.
Making matters worse for the FNM is the crime situation throughout the country. Dead bodies lying in the road 10am in the morning and the government is paralyzed to remedy the problem. Murders up, armed robbery up, violent crimes up and Papa isn’t saying anything; and they talking about a matter of TRUST? TRUST MY BIG FOOT! In fact when he decided to report on the matter following the highest recorded year of murders, the criminals responded by gunning down their victims the next morning in the middle of the road in Bain and Grant town in broad daylight.
One woman in Lizzy said every night when she come home she quickly run out of her car race to the front door and holler to the robbers who frequently break into her home, “GET OUTTA MY HOUSE PLEASE I REACH!” Another woman said she stopped going out with friends and a taxi driver said she’s too afraid to work in the night. But again, despite the fact of these and others happening under the FNM, Ingraham says don’t blame him.
Then what is amazing in all this is that Rodney Moncur says Duane Sands is disqualified. However, “The Ghost” candidate for the FNM is all over the ZNS network telling the people he’s in the race. Duane Sands, the man being sued by Lynden Harrison for medical malpractice, is the only candidate up on ZNS. The PLP candidate was blocked from placing ads of any kind on ZNS and URCA refuses to respond to the Party complaints of bias by the broadcasting corporation. WHAT A SLAP IN THE FACE TO DEMOCRACY!
The Party, which once boasts of OPENING AND FREEING THE AIRWAYS, has reversed its once greatest accomplishment and is carrying on like Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.
Hubert Ingraham your political days are numbered and it ain’t long nah!
A member of the media hanging out at the FNM rally. Here’s a picture, which proves bias in the media. Jerome Sawyer a contract worker at ZNS joined scores of his colleagues at the FNM mass rally on Prince Charles last Thursday night. Sawyer who anchors Bahamas Tonight never carried any story the next morning but could be seen socializing and drinking partying up the place. So were several high-ranking members of the Broadcasting Corporation of the Bahamas. This is the same Corporation, which boycotted the PLP from airing advertisements. We hope the Ingraham government starts their cuts at ZNS from the top.
