<<< Chairman of the Free National Movement Senator Johnley Ferguson.
Nassau, Bahamas — All is not well for Spicey Picey when it comes to politics it seems. Already causing his party the PLP to issue a public apology for his outburst which resulted in the Travolta mistrial, he now has the FNM condemning him.
Local media received a statement from the FNM saying: “The FNM condemns South Andros MP Picewell Forbes for rash and irresponsible remarks which led to the derailment of a high-profile trial in the Supreme Court.”
“What MP Forbes did was clearly an interference in the orderly process of the justice system,” the press statement attributed to Chairman Johnley Ferguson read. “The protracted John Travolta attempted extortion case had already attracted much negative attention to The Bahamas. We were all relieved that the whole national nightmare was about to come to an end. Yet instead of that relief, now the international media is reporting a mistrial brought about by the misguided, publicity-seeking comments of a PLP MP at a political gathering.”
If you click on our story we reported last week, you can hear the comments made by ‘Soca’ Forbes who is really giving Obie ‘Da Snitch’ a run for it as the MEDIA HOG/BLABBERMOUTH of the PLP. Ferguson even hit on Neville Wisdom’s unauthorized nomination of Big Bad Brad.
Said the FNM: “The PLP convention was already fraught with problems and irregularities, including the ill-judged action of former Cabinet Minister Neville Wisdom. He nominated former MP Bradley Roberts for the party’s chairmanship when Wisdom was a non-financial PLP member. And thus he was unauthorized to nominate anyone or even be in the room where nominations were taking place.
“An injury of untold proportions has been inflicted on The Bahamas because of what Picewell Forbes did,” said Ferguson.
“And now we in the FNM must now re-double our efforts and prepare an agenda to ensure that such an irresponsible group remains exactly where they are – IN THE OPPOSITION.”
