Nassau, Bahamas — Cable and Wireless ad confirms BTC is sold, while this WUTLESS ‘GOOD FA NUTTIN’ LOW DOWN FNM Government has LIED to the people again!
Ingraham ministers are all over the place telling the people of the Bahamas BTC has entered into a MoU with Cable and Wireless and that the deal is not finalized. One reading an ad appearing in the UK on line would agree the telecommunications company is GONE FROM THE Bahamian people.
C&W said they didn’t pay a 3% finders fee, but we wonder what did they pay?
The ad read: Our Client…”…have just acquired another organization and is seeking an interim Head of Communications…” C&W yesterday in a statement confirmed the ad was to hire a Bahamian. Someone must explain when was the DAMN WUTLESS FNM Government going to tell the people they sold BTC?
Following BP’s circulation of the ad and subsequent questions of its appearing online at a UK based company much attention has been given to its publishing. The ad has been removed as fast as it was published and C&W has since issued a statement stating:
“In response to an online ad to fill a position at BTC currently circulating, CWC/LIME would like to release the following statement:
It is an ad to hire a Bahamian person on an interim basis to advise CWC/LIME as we are working on the transaction. The ad is for a short-term consulting appointment and is not for a BTC employee.”
You better get out that cold but rally. BTC gone, BEC next.
Why does everyone believe that because you do not support the senseless sale of BTC, that you must be a PLP. Please FNM’S read the name!!I am a Bahamian, and this sale is unjustified. I dont care what the PLP did or does, both political parties are in this together. And anyone who thinks otherwise, needs to go back to school. Oh yeah I forgot, our education system is a bunch of …..See ya at the rally tonight
OK BP and other PLP operatives talking fool about PLP for Bahamians.. This is a question posted on another website, it makes all the sense in the world.
Please answer to this: (General elections were held in the Bahamas on 2 May 2007)
On April 01, 2007, the Government of the Bahamas officially handed over the development, operation and management of the Lynden Pindling International Airport to the Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD). NAD is a Bahamian company with a 30 year lease. Executives from Vancouver Airport Services (YVRAS) lead the company.
Additionally it has been said by good sources that your government and the other one have been giving something to the sum of $50,000 a month to foreign companies via the ministry of tourism to do things Bahamians could easily do, But the fact is that no matter if one is PLP or FNM, Bahamians like to think foreign is better or they are just too lazy to look for a good local professional. In some cases they may be half right where it might be done better in say the USA or Canada, but doing things down here is not the same and many of those Foreigners fall on their backsides when they get here and realize life really is not that easy.
Bahamas for Bahamians? That has to be the dumbest thing Ive ever heard .. especially since we depend on Foreign Tourists for our survival.
SAD DAY PLEASE GO READ THE PUNCH OR THE DUTTY TRIBUNE TO FEED YOUR APPETITE.
Can’t you appreciate Bahamas Press is not your cup of tea and therefore could you please stay off this website?
Before we must take drastic steps against you PLEASE BE GONE!
WE REPORT YOU DECIDE!
You havent seen nothing yet….start your research on the selling on BEC……..This announcement should be released by the end of this week…:) you can thank me later….
Everyone keeps talking about better service and better prices when BTC is sold. Has the government provided this evidence, because I have yet to see it. By all account according to the other Caribbean countries C&W has only produced, bad service, highier prices and VERY LOW MORALE FOR THEIR WORKERS!!!.AND THERE IS PROOF OF THIS.Please provide evidence to back up these statements, otherwise they are fallacies, and this will NOT PASS WITH ME ANYMORE. You know what has been LIBERATING,the internet. You can even see how a company (C&W) whose sale is not final supposedly, is advertising in Europe for a job that should be awarded to Bahamians. LOL, AND YOU ALL BAHAMIANS STILL ASLEEP?? Get with it!!!
Message to the government (both parties): STOP HIRING THESE SO CALLED CONSULTANTS,THEN YOU WOULD HAVE NO NEED TO BORROW ALL THIS MONEY, TO NOW SELL OUT YOUR COUNTRY TO PAY IT BACK!!!! NOTE TO THE PRIME MINSITER, I WOULD RATHER SEE BAHAMIANS OWN BTC THAN GET A PUNY RAISE ROUND ELECTION. KEEP YA MONEY.I CAN NOT BE BOUGHT, CAUSE I AM AN EDUCATED, QUALIFIED GOVERNMENT WORKER. THERE ARE MANY OF US BAHAMIANS OUT HERE WITH LOTS OF EXPERIENCE AND THE EDUCATION TO BACK IT. SO HEAR ME AGAIN, I CANNOT BE BOUGHT.
Don’t agree about the way this deal is being done. Let not lose focus here we have been asking for better service and good prices from BTC, BEC and W & S. These corporation have to sell man. We can continue to operate like this. Voting out Fnm and voting in PLP aint going to change nothing TRUST NONE OF THEM. I THINK BTC IS GONE.
when it come to having faith in moving mountains, why do christians always as you to keep praying and to ignore the shovel God places in your hand.
they remind me of people who pray to win the lottery but don’t buy any tickets.
well I have in my possession a ticket to better governance called a voters card.
any shortcut to 2012 so my prayers of the FNM Government cessation can be answered.
Thank you Jesus! I pray that our prime minister hurry and table the MOU and sell BTC and open the flood gates for competition so all this fear mongoring can stop and progression can continue. The Government is not the savior Jesus is so trust Him and pray for the Government, I know we need to sell now mr PM!
Obviously a family, friend or lover.
Surely a matter of this magnitude and national should been debated in a more systematic way, that is way I will be attending the mass rally of the Bahamian workers on R M Baily park on Monday at 7pm
I was you will go as well to hear what they have to share with us
This is an affront to our people. The MOU has not been disclosed, nor the matter tabled, or debated and passed in the people’s parliament. BUT because the elected dictator has decreed that his will be done, C&W has arrogantly gone ahead and advertised the positions. Well that shows contempt for us already! Bretheren, Bahamians had better mount their horses because the Ingraham government and its colonialist and racist mouthpiece (the Tribune) want us back in the 1960s again. Their man Ingraham has contempt for his own people, so why should C&W respect us.
Truly it is not C&W’s fault its our fault. We will wake up one day and all freedom of expression will (while guaranteed by the written constitution) carry such a heavy victimisation penalty that we will be too fearful to say Uncle Tom go back to Abaco.
This entire BTC and C&W episode really has me upset. After 37 years of independence we have shown that Bahamians can not only manage their affairs but build and maintain institutions. The Bahamas has by capita the most Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Accountants etc than any country in the Caribbean. I wonder what our politicians are telling outsiders about us? Are they saying that we are lazy, worthles and dumb? That we don’t care about anything. This whole situation shows a total disrespect for Bahamians and our ability to run a country.It reminds me of a statement made by the late Etienne Dupuch of the Tribune concerning the colours in the Bahamian flag. He described the Aquamarine as the sea, the Gold as the sunshine, the Black represented the people and the white border represented White people holding the Bahamas together. Maybe our politicians also believe this.There is no other rational reason for them behaving like this!
It is truly a sad day when our (Bahamians) loyalty lies to FNM/PLP and not to their country.
Something to think about sad day.
A matter of trust,trust the foreign national movement goverment to lie to the bahamian people,tax da hell out of the yet unborn bahamians,allow thousands to go unemployed then wall out of the peoples parliament and laugh in ya face,simply the best
And Sad Day think about this, you could make ya lil comment, but ONE COCKEYE MONKEY don’t stop 250,000 daily readers from logging on and reading Bahamas Press!
We already sent the blast out on this and papa should be getting it now on his BTC blackberry.
BP remember, the C&W statement stated that “a fee of the type mentioned was not paid”. This does not deny that a fee was not paid rather, that a “finders fee” was not paid.Nevertheless, a fee of some type was paid. As to the sale of BTC, the FNM will rue the day that they did this.BTC is a fine organisation;the staff is first rate and, with the funds generated by BTC, they can bumy any technology that they want to upgrade the syste.
And More deflection and SPIN from SAD DAY! Why you don’t get your you know what off BP and stop monitoring us for PAPA! Papa does pay you for overtime? You on BP more than BP!
More lies BP just cannot help himself. Lies, lies.
