Clay Sweeting the youngest candidate in over three decades has been ratified as the candidate for North Eleuthera just minutes ago.
Change is coming for the people of NORTH ELEUTHERA! Reports coming into BP tell us the PLP machine will move through the constituency very shortly to introduce Clay to the voters of that area!
CHRISTIE IS MOVING THROUGH LIKE A ROCK STAR!
It’s a New Day with Clay!
Russel only 1 ting defanit in life yea we all gona dead. I ain tink ya kno dat man adner an what he do fa de peple in eleutra.
george is i hear sound like jalosy an ye scared a adner oh my
BOTH ARE MORE SUITABLE THAN ABNER AGREE ?
No I meant Clay is just the front man.The ones who are running the show are the ones backing him up like the Pinder family,Ryan and Gilbert Pinder.I wonder when the people of s.w. will realize that they are voting for them and not Clay,lol!!!!
Come on we know that Clay is just the front man,we really know who is running the show here in Spanish Wells….
Russell if I was you I would not bank on clay because history is a strange thing. Dacy it sounds like you know your stuff because it was not perry who choose clay it was another white boy who choos him and when dey come to bluff they did bring all kinda fish anting to giv to people fa dem to vote fa clay also if rollins so proud to be plp why he done wear no plp shirt at de rally in nassau
elections are months away and if I was a candidate I surely would not be giving away anything right now for votes and besides its against the law.I love the concern being expressed by those opposed to Clay as they realise that he is definitely ahead in the race.Who cares who made the recommendation for Clays candidacy ,Spanish Wells has a son of the soil who knows business besides law.All the way with clay in Spanish Wells as a new day is dawning and poor Abner is feeling the heat as he cannot deliver this one for Papa.
I trust that Mr. Christie will scan the horizon carefully before a Candidate for South Abaco is chosen.
I would be refreshing to have some new blood in the mix this time. Some dynamic young person who can articulate his vision for South Abaco.
Who will da PLP run in Abaco for the North and South?
As a young person (under 30), not tied to any party, but in full support of whom ever I consider to be the country’s brightest candidates and politicians; I am thrilled to see a talented Mr. Sweeting seek political office. This young man seems to have quite a successful future ahead of him. He only needs a seasoned, refined and accomplished politician, whether active or retired, to polish any dull areas he may have.
Finding such a politician is the task? Can you guys think of anyone?
if u really want to know clay sweeting is having to study to learn about his country so a under educated man u want just stop being onesided and read about both parties and way out the good from the bad and see what u get when will youll ppl will understand that them supporting the plp on spanish wells is not concerned about the country or islands they only worried bout their pockets
u think they have a say around the table or only a stepping stone to win the gov, when brent was made DPM it was aproblem with the PLP because of his colour so what the change now are clay an rayan a differnt shade of white
@ capt From my knowledge of the Brent fiasco and objections by the PLP it did not concern race but the conflict of interest issue.Persons are still apalled that someone who was fired for egregious acts of conflict of interest is now in a position to become PM.PAPA sidestep the present Minister of Insecurity to give Brent the edge.Since you remember that false story,what do you say about the Minister of Insecurity conveniently being absent from the country whenever Brent is appointed acting PM?Make that an issue and not a falsehood.
talk about the lies they said when the bohengy got to spanish wells abner had to smoke 3 cigarettes Abner Pinder was nowhere on spanish wells so how could he be to the bohengy dock in spanish wells
We report Yinner decide. Supporters met Clay on the dock, supporters came with Clay on the boat. It was a Love affair we say. Now get this, we never said Abner was there, but he is on ya mind. Where was he though, in the toilet?
so sorry someone said and for your info that dont bother abner haha
If you noticed, the story said the PLP machinery will now introduce him to the people. I didn’t say it… Read the story again/ My point was why ratift then introduce. It should be the other way around.
“Change is coming for the people of NORTH ELEUTHERA! Reports coming into BP tell us the PLP machine will move through the constituency very shortly to introduce Clay to the voters of that area”! wHEN INDOUBT READ, READ, AND READ AGAIN.
why is the man’s skin color an issue for some? He has the right to think what he wants and join any political party he so wishes. He wants to run for the PLP, so what? Why does there have to be some conspiracy theory behind his decision?
I talking to you DACY!
I for one wish more of my white Bahamian brothers and sisters would be more assertive not just in politics but in the social arena as well. They have a lot to bring to the table.
We are one Bahamas and one people. Who dont like it and cant handle that need to find another country!
Oh you mean the FNM candidate Relly? That Theo Guy? Yeah we heard that also.
We dont need another LAWYER…please god give usa pastor or bishop like Randy who is more kinky than crooked ok….too many lawyers not a good thing
How dare you lump me in the those of “the herd mentality.”
My brother go get a reference letter about me from the great Russell Johnson. Trust me, he’ll tell ya “ma bredda don’t mess wit him.” I’ll let your “youthful indiscretion” slide this time, or are you just “naive” (oh boy, I’m in a good mood today. Rest assured that next time you’ll get a good verbal cut a** (you’ll get do rite in). I keep my promises (always read the warning on the package before you open it) – THE STORM.
@Darren Thanks for attacking me for no reason other than truth.You are asked a question and due to your depth of intellect you answered in the way in which you are thinking.Pinder and Sweeting are both young white Bahamians who subscribed to the message of Christie who showed by his actions while PM that he is tolerant.Put aside your bias and endeavour to ensure that the PLP wins North Eleuthera by a 2 to 1 margin.Christie is showing that every young Bahamian can find space in the PLP and can come in with balls and leave as you came in.The PLP ran more white candidates than the FNM in the last Gen Elects and this is the message that Pinder and Sweeting are exhibiting;it was not a one shot deal.Homeboy no need to get angry the enemy is PAPA who says we as Bahamians are incapable of running anything.
So, um……….Russell, are you saying that the PLP is only using Clay and Ryan for their color? Stop being such a jack A. Do you people praise GOD, or go to task for him, as much as y’all do for these political parties, and whats sad is that some of you people suppose to be the intellectuals of this country. Both PLP and FNM have done S#!^ to this country, and i personally hate it when people who know of it, turn a blind eye to those injustices and would go to war with their brothers, over a political party. Stop being ignorant people.Many of us might not even live to see next election.
@ Dacy, STORM, Serious Thing & q
I have read all of your post and the common thread is ‘ya’ll can’t handle the truth!’. The reality is the ‘face’ of the PLP is changing!! Whether it is Leo ‘the Lion’ Ryan Pinder, Dr. Andre Rollins, Dion Smith and now Clay Sweeting! The PLP seems to have gotten the message! The PLP needed a ‘political blood transfusion’ and now they have got ‘new’ energy! So what, if these young men have their ‘own’ money, good for them! Independently, successful people breeds a successful country! Obviously, they are not in politics to make money for themselves! I could care less if they are white, black or red for that matter they are Bahamians! The problem with you guys is you can no longer use that ‘old and tired’ argument that the PLP is only for old people or is not youth friendly! Christie to his credit has put that argument to bed/rest forever in the PLP! Now it is up to these young, bright, successful Bahamian men to put a stamp on the future development of our country! I wish them all the best!
CHANGE IS ALWAYS GOOD, IT HAS BEEN THE PLP DURING ELECTION TIME WHO PULLED THE RACE CARD “THE WHITE MAN KEEPING US DOWN” SO IT IS THE PLP WHO IS CATCHING UP WITH THE TIME…WE REJECTED THAT NOTION IN 1992…SO 20 YEARS LATER, THEY SEE THE BENEFIT OF EMBRACING THE WHITE MAN…I WANT A BETTER COUNTRY FOR MY CHILDREN, I VOTED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1992, NOW MY DAUGHTER WILL BE VOTING, SHE IS A VERY SMART GIRL, BLACK OR WHITE SHE WANTS BETTER…THERE IS A PLACE IN PARLIMENT FOR THE WEALTHY WHITES AND THE POOR BLACKS…JUST MAKE IT BETTER! NOW WITH GOOD DR. HE NEEDS TO REMEMBER THE PASSING OF THAT LAWYER FELLA – WHATS IS NAME-PAUL MOSS- WHO BELIEVE THAT PERRY EM GON RELEASE THE POWER OF LEADERSHIP TO THEM. ONLY DEATH WITH REMOVE THESE GUYS. I DEAL WITH TRUTH, I BELIEVE WHEN A FELLA SEASON IS OVER, MOVING ROCK STAR IS A GOOD NAME FOR A MOVIE…PERRY, PAPA TIME AND SEASON. IF THESE UPCOMING LEADERS DO NOT STAND ON THEIR OWN CONVICTION (ROLLINS/MCCARTNEY) THEY WILL LOSE THE RESPECT OF THE PEOPLE…BAHAMIAN PEOPLE LOVE THEIR LEADER TO BE STRONG AND BIGGERTY…NOT A CONFORMIST…
I invite you to read a history book in regard to ‘race’ in the Bahamas in particular when it comes to political parties! 1) The PLP was started by ‘white’ men (i.e. Henry Milton Taylor, William Cartwright and Cyril Stevenson) But, between me and you the youth could care less about race today! We have friends of all colours and creeds (like your daughter)! 2) i don’t know where you got this idea that ‘Bahamian people ‘only’ want their leader to strong but we also want them to ‘listen’ to the voice of the people! Please do not equate ‘strength’ with ‘stubbornness’ with our current PM! Former U.S. President George W. Bush had the same mentality! That he was ‘all knowing’ and did not need to consult with anyone else as he was ‘elected’ by the U.S. people (barely) to his ‘divine’ purpose! Thankfully, in the U.S. you can only run for two terms (i.e. 8 years) for U.S. President! And speaking of ‘two terms’ it wasn’t me but the current FNM leader the country, who said he only need ‘two terms’ in office! (i.e. 10 years)! And that not only Sir Lynden Pindling ma born him to be Prime Minister! Now he has been in office for almost 15 years and still wants another 5 making 20 years as PM! Wow, that is ‘flip-flopping’ for ya and speaks of a hypocrite!! That is why Branville McCartney is frustrated in his attempts to be the next PM of the Bahamas! He took the current FNM PM at his word but some peoples word doesn’t mean anything! That is what young people are watching a mans actions not race! They are past tha issue in the U.S. with President Obama (first black Head of State) And hopefully, we are also that way now in the Bahamas. i wish Clay Sweeting well and I hope he becomes the next MP for North Eleuthra! As for me I ‘Gone Fishing’! Bye!!
THE PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT THE CHOSE, AND TO CHANGE THEIR MINDS, AND MOST TIMES THE SEASON THAT THEIR ARE EXPERIENCING MAKES UP THEIR MINDS…SO WE WILL SEE, LIKE I HAVE TOLD MANY: IF THERE ALL COME BEARING GIFTS, ONCE THE PEOPLE OF ELEUTHERA LIVES ARE IMPROVED, ONCE THINGS ARE MADE BETTER FOR THEM…I COOL-PLP, FNM, BLACK, WHITE, BLEACHED.
crooked ppl breed a crooked country what about the rest of the bahamas that the fnm as helped what the plp wouldnt even give them phones or power it aint only bout u ya know
talk about ryan the lion which as just turn into a bahamian he learnt in miami how to run this country heyhe only came back cause is family wanted him to
And the FNM allowed an AmERICAN beat they pants off. WHAT A CUT YOU KNOW WHAT! BAM BAM BAM!
you call 2 votes beating the pants off and had to carry it to election court what they havent paid yet.
The FNM Government and Dr. Sands are responsible for the election court costs.
Russell Johnson is in “hog heaven” now. Hey, Russell, how was the rally in “Lizzy” on Wednesday past (I want to hear from someone who can me give a first hand account)? -LOL
Peace Darcy,you were a dissenter but trhe majority have won so put aside your feelings and get onboard.Am not emasculated but many of our brothers were especially FNM Cabinet Ministers.
NOT A DISSENTER…NO JUST AN ELEUTHERAN…
If truly and Eleutheran you would know the positive response and excitement behind Clay – He is the one they wanted. Unanimous support in Harbour Island, unanimous support on the main land – in all settlements. That is a fact.
TRUST ME RYAN I AM TRUELY ELEUTHERAN, AS TURE AS YOU ARE BAHAMIAN AND NOT AMERICAN I AM TRUELY ELEUTHERAN, YOU SHOULD HEAR ME SPEAK,NO Hs OR A, E I O or Us (LOL)MOTHER, FATHER, SISTERS BROTHERS ALL ELEUTHERAN AND INTERESTING ENOUGH, NORTH ELEUTHERA. 🙂
He will never win, plan and simple.
That is certainly not what the response has been from each and every settlement, Clay is clearly the front runner to be the next MP, and he will win convincingly.
Perry em is not listen to the voice of the people but to the money of the white man who can finance their own campaign, we’ll see it his statergy works in North Eleuthera…
You are completely off base on this one, the people demanded Clay – it is that simple. The unanimously asked Christie for Clay on a number of occasions. The North is gone PLP in a big way.
Ryan are you serious, the people DEMANDED CLAY…? And Perry give him to their DEMANDS. How come South Beach and Kennedy DEMANDS were met?
Ah Ryan, it is what it is. SOUTH BEACH DEMANDED, KENNDEY IS DEMANING. WHAT MAKES THE DEMANDS OF NORTH ELEUTHERIANS MORE POWERFUL THAN THE DEMANDS OF THE OTHERS….DONT HURT YOU HEAD I TELL YOU…THE POWER OF MONEY, NOT THE DEMANDS OF THE PEOPLE.
@ Dacy The PLP obviously sees a win for them with Sweeting as their candidate so whats the beef if he is able to fund his own campaign?The fight is for the Govt of the Bahamas so no token candidate will suffice.Get with it and if you are a supporter of the PLP put aside personal ambition and support the candidate of the party.Can you live another 5 years with the policies of the FNM govt?Are you better off now than you were prior to 2007?Can you continue to be beaten down by this Govt that feels no Bahamian is worthy of anything? Do you agree with the emasculation of the Bahamian male by PAPA?
Russell, Do you feel emasculated by PAPA…interesting. Should I have a say in who I want to represent me in Parliment? How is Perry em know whats best for me in that regard, or it is a win in the North means that Perry is PM again and thats what is important. Russell I hope you get your balls back next year after the PLP wins…
Clay has been on the ground, settlement by settlement for months now. The people know him and know him well, in fact, a contingent from each settlement accompanied him to NGC meeting last night to be ratified.

Ryan…he is a new as you were, Perry just hoping that he gets the same results, white boys with money equal win
q get it right, dont get the FNM and the PLP MIX UP my brother,the PLP is not a one man party, I am from Spanish Well, so I dont know who those SO CALL PLPS are who does not agree with this young man. STOP LYING AND GET YOUR STORY TOGETHER. KEEP YOUR FNM SELF OUT OF THE PLP BUSINESS
u want me to stay out of the plp business and talk about lying tell me this how could Clay Sweeting get up there and say he wants to help the crawfish industry when his so called boat he helped run is killing out the product by bringing home all those under measure crawfish. He go change the measurements of the crawfish to make it right hey so stop the bullshit and you want us to stop lying u make the first step and stop cause what was just written i could prove Thank U
FORGIVE THE PRIEST “SOMEONE WHO KNOWS” PLEASE FORGIVE THE PRIEST! HAHAHAHAH!
why bring the priest now it aint like he just started doing it what you call it I call it being hypocrite you call it making a mistake for all these years hey
Bring your proof at your earliest convenience!
o i forget creature mr gilbert pinder done give them back to him
So what your saying is you have no proof just propaganda?
I can prove that Mr Pinder is a crook !!!!!!!.
That’s my point…. I understand that you need the Spanish Wells votes to win. But, will you lose some of the other votes because of this. Remember your base. Get their opinions on it. In fact I know a couple of PLP supporters who don’t agree with this decision. But, they don’t have a say. Listen to the people. Hear the people. This is a power move to sure up some Spanish Wells votes for sure. But, how can you give the people a man who is from the soil and they don’t even know.
On one hand the PLP wants BTC to get the approval of the masses, but when it comes to the inner workings, one man has all the say. It’s the same thing the PM does. It all comes down to one man. Peter and Paul. Both came up under the best. LOP. It is obvious that the inner workings of the PLP hasn’t changed…..
@q “In fact I know a couple of PLP supporters who don’t agree with this decision. But, they don’t have a say. Listen to the people. Hear the people “.You are an obvious FNM supporter who is trembling in your boots at the prospect of Sweeting getting more than 50% of the votes in Spanish Wells itself.And by the way couple is 2 so stop trying to cause dissension as this will not work.Spanish Wells gone and the Ryan Pinder and Sweeting combination will produce more magic for the PLP as it is already doing.Dont worry q the PLP has always been good for Eleuthera.
Why would the machinery have to introduce him to the voters. He is from there. Why don’t they know him. Political parties have now sheltered these candidates. Back in the day they had to go to the people themselves. But now it’s like the party has to do it. He is already the candidate, so what if the people don’t want him. I think he should have gone to them and they choose him. Not the party choose him then take him to the people. That’s backwards and the problem. Stop choosing the candidated for the people. Let the people choose. I guess you haven’t learnt yet… Same old same old.We will await to see who “you” will choose for South Eleuthera and St. Cecilia…. We will wait…
If they dont know him by now, they will never, never, never know him…hmmmmhm
@q Come now no need to be ambiqous ratification also means that the PLP leadership goes to North Eleuthera and let the voters there know of their endorsement.From the feedback that was received am certain this catapulted Sweeting towards the nomination for the PLP.Many others wanted this nomination but at the end of the process those making the choice knew that Sweeting is the best person that could bring the seat home for the PLP.Only one other PLP candidate has won North Eleuthera and that was Peter Bethel as this area is a bastion of the UBP.You nay sayers can see the handwriting on the wall as Sweeting will beat anyone he opposes in North Eleuthera.
