<<< A sign on the doors of TCBY ice cream parlour on Carmichael Road. Anne’s Ice Cream Parlor also closed it doors for good. More layoff are taking place in the government and the MINISTER SAYS HE HIRING? COME CLEAN MAN! COME CLEAN PEOPLE HURTING!
Nassau, Bahamas: An opposition member said in the House of Commons on last week Wednesday, that Gordon Brown’s government was issuing press releases, sometimes three a day, telling the people of Great Briton what they’re doing to cut the massive job loses across the country. His question to the government was, yes we hear all these press statements about relief packages, but can the government now report actual numbers to this HOUSE of what it is indeed doing? What are the true and correct impact of these relief efforts and have any of them began as yet? The question was chided as Gordon Brown told the member how he should not be questioning his government’s efforts but rather supporting them.
The Bahamas appears to be receiving the same wave of press release churned daily by members of the WUTLESS MEDIA on behalf of Mugabe’s government.
Hubert Ingraham from Washington last year had Sharon Turner forward a statement to the media saying how his government has a mortgage relief package for homeowners. The news sounded GREAT, but then when asked about it he replied months later, “GO TALK TO THE BANK!” When asked again he said no one has come to him saying they have difficulties paying their mortgage.

Then it was the announcement of a $130 million highway contract signing to the Argentine road construction company. At that signing it was a promise that works will commence immediately. Still the road highway extension has yet to begin.
Then it was the minister of labour, yeah Dion saying the government hiring 3,500 workers. A LIE worse than a statistic. People reading this blog would remember that it was this same minister who oversaw in 2007/8 the government termination of over 1,200 government workers along with the retiring exercise of hundreds more police, customs, immigration and other government department workers. In fact we’ve learn just last night that several temporary workers in the ministry of finance will be sent home this week. A single mother with three children, whose mother recently died of cancer, told Bahamas Press that she was in the ministry for over 2 1/2 years, and this coming Friday will be her last day in the office. Her contract along with several others will not be renewed. And so whilst the labour minister says he is hiring, the minister of finance is letting people go.
We can go on and on and on all into the night about the true unemployment figures now in this country. Bahamas Press is compiling a list for a later report. We are now two pages long with the names of the companies and the number of employees terminated since May 2, 2007. And guess who heading the list? Yes, you’ve guessed it right, the Ingraham government tops the list of employers firing workers in the country. NOT HIRING, FIRING!
And just last night our list grew by two more companies. Two ice cream parlours on Carmichael Road are now officially close. Anne’s Ice Cream shop and TCBY. Both companies collectively terminated 15 workers. TCBY had closed since January 19th, and guess what? We kept that news off this blog just to see if the WUTLESS MEDIA would report it.
The way this looks, only Bahamas Press is willing to talk about the way in which Bahamians are being terminated all across this country. The PLP GONE QUIET! THE WUTLESS MEDIA FIRING WORKERS THEMSELVES SO THEY’re QUIET! AND THE WUTLESS INGRAHAM GOVERNMENT JUST SPINNING LIES BY THE DAY!
The Bahamas needs CHANGE! We need people who would come forward and SPEAK FOR THE PEOPLE! WE NEED REAL LEADERSHIP IN THIS TOWN WHO WILL TELL US THE TRUTH NOT LIES! PEOPLE WHO WILL FIGHT FOR US! And confirm that whilst difficult days are ahead, we will rise out of this mess Ingraham has placed us in.
An empty TCBY location on Carmichael Road. Here’s another small business gone bust. This closure along with others is just what Bahamas Press warned will happen when Hubert Ingraham started firing everyone in 2007. Stopping contract after contract across the country. Now the economic decline has accelerated to a dangerous level. His junior minister LAING says he waiting on OBAMA PACKAGE! Boy these some jokers!
