The Director of BIS [Arthur Foulkes] is on Government Hill collecting another salary and the Deputy Director Sharon Turner is foot foot snapping pictures of the Prime Minister. WHO IS RUNNING The Bahamas Information Service (BIS)? Photo of the Prime Minister in the House of Assembly Wednesday.
Nassau Bahamas – Deputy Director of BIS, Sharon Turner, once again boarded a flight, this one bound for Limo, Peru, with the prime minister to take pictures. The public was somewhat fooled when pictures were taken in the airport by Peter Ramsay and published in local dailies. The public thought that Mr. Ramsay was being allowed to function in role as BIS photographer attached to the prime minister’s office. But nooooooo!! Ms. Turner was on the flight bound for Peru to snap shots of the prime minister as he did his job.
The question is, who is in charge of assigning personnel at BIS?? Or is Ms. Turner assigning herself to the prime minister’s beat?? After Bahamas Press brought Ms. Turner’s STRANGE additives to her job description to light, we came under lots of critisms. No doubt the critics are the friends of this lady who feel, out of loyalty, that they should come to her defence. Half of them have MAJOR skeletal matter in their own closets and need to shut up before the closet doors start creaking open and the skeletal matter starts dropping out one by one. Why take the chance?
So once again the public purse has been made to pay for Ms. Turner’s sight seeing trip or whatever else. Ms. Turner in no way can be compared to Mr. Ramsay when it comes to taking pictures. The lady has no talent in this regard and needs to PUT UP her cover up….err…we meant LENS forever and stop trying to mislead us that she is on a trip to take pictures.
The Opposition is sitting idly by while ONCE AGAIN the FNM is abusing its power. Why doesn’t the Opposition act like an Opposition and ask the Prime Minister the necessity of this young woman going on trips with him. And, at the same time find out why Peter Ramsay is not allowed to travel any more with the PM. The public needs to know this, so active imaginations cannot come to the conclusion that its became Mr. Ramsay’s waist might be thirty something and not twenty something and his hair is closely cropped and not flowing on his back.
Wake up Opposition!! Ask the question and stop talking bout it behind their backs. Bahamas Press is doing the job of the LOUSY WUTLESS MEDIA in this country, we cant do your job as well. How much jobs you all want us to have?
Please !! Please !! Somebody tell us why Ms. Turner is in Limo, Peru snapping shots. We wanna know!
don’t blame me i voted plp
The PM wrote the response. That’s his mentality. Bigga KNOWS that this government is not worth its salt. I cant wait for next election for them to come talk crap round my head. I will be the heckler in the back.
Who else to BLAME other than the PM, when on the campaign trail he said and PROMISED that the FNM would IMMEDIATELY solve ALL problems the Bahamas is currently facing, and all that Bahamians needed to do was to vote them into office.
Please, don’t even try to give me the standard FNM supporter “GIVE THEM MORE TIME” excuse.
Get the dictionary and look up the words IMMEDIATELY’ AND ‘ALL’ and you will realize that TIME IS UP AFTER 13 MONTHS…… THERE IS NO MORE TIME TO BE HAD.
Talk about lousy parenting —– Check out the parents of the 17 year old QC student.
Talk about the WUTLESS role models —- 20 of them sit in the House of Assembly on the Government side of the house, 1 on the bench and 2 on the other side becuase all of the seats have been filled on the Government side – THAT’S 23 WUTLESS ROLE MODELS IN TOTAL.
We do not need to preach gloom and doom, WE LIVE GLOOM AND DOOM EVERY DAY, with the high crime rate, declining economy,declining tourist arrivals, foreign investment pull-outs, exhorbitant gas, food and utility costs, and the ever increasing unemployment levels, all of which this Government seems to be at a loss as what to do in order to solve the problem.
They had PLENTY MOUTH on the campaign trail, and after 13 months NOT ONE CAMPAIGN PROMISE HAS MATERIALIZED.
All of the ribbon cutting and initiatives that this Government tried to take credit for since May 2nd 2007, were those left in place by the previous Government.
With information so easily available on the web, it has become difficult for this Government this time around to pull the wool over our eyes, and to take credit for the work of others ….. We can just as easily do the research and get the TRUTH.
So Bigga, it is a BIG DEAL that the PM could find the time to pen such a “CHILDISH COMMENT” to this site, when there are numerous problems that warrant his undivided attention.
Like I said before “I DO HOPE THAT THE SCRIBE WAS AN IMPOSTER JUST PLAYING A JOKE” because I would be disappointed that the PM of this country would stoop so low and act so INFANTILE.
WAT IS DA BIG DEAL WITH THE PM RESPONDING? DONT BLAME THE PM FOR WHAT ILLS BEFALLS DIS COUNTRY. IT IS US, DA CITIZENS FAULT. BEING LOUSLY PARENTS, BAD EXAMPLES WUTLESS ROLE MODELS. NATION LOOK UP, BE WISE FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH CLOSER THAN WHEN WE FIRST BELIEVE. WE ARE SO FORTUNATE THAT SOME OF US PREACH DOOM AND GLOOM ALL THE DAY LONG.
HAVE FAITH BAHAMAS
I was thinking the same thing but based on Media’s response, it WAS Mr. Ingraham who posted the comment – the site apparently saw his email address. But you are RIGHT, Jan. With the country going to hell under ALL of our noses, the CHIEF has the time to respond to this website. He OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT have enough to do. I cant believe this!
And AGAIN I am saying, why didnt he respond to all the other stuff. He just found it necessary to say something when this girl’s name was mentioned. Something mussee up aye?
I hope that the post to this site by “Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Hubert Ingraham” was done by an IMPOSTER.
With the economy going in the toilet, unemployment rising, crime at an all time high, persons still resorting to having cookouts to pay for medical bills, gasoline, food and utility costs going through the roof, court cases still backed up, FNM scandal after FNM scandal after FNM scandal emerging, foreign investors closing up shop, not a single house built, tourism numbers falling, the grade point average not getting any better, sick out after sick out becoming the norm …….. HOW IS IT THAT HUBERT INGRAHAM HAS TIME TO POST SUCH AN INFANTILE COMMENT TO THIS WEB SITE?
SHOULDN’T HE BE BUSY DEALING WITH SOLVING THE PROBLEMS THAT ARE FACING THE NATION?
PLEASE TELL ME THAT THIS WAS JUST A PERSON TRYING TO BE HUMOUROUS BY ‘PRETENDING’ TO BE HUBERT INGRAHAM.
Please tell me that we ACTUALLY have an ADULT in charge of this country, and NOT someone with such a THIN SKIN, where it necessitates this CHILDISH COMMENT.
Please tell me that this is NOT the SEASONED POLITICIAN WHO SHOULD KNOW BY NOW HOW TO TAKE THE HEAT WHICH COMES WITH THE POSITION.
PLEASE, PLEASE TELL ME THAT OUR PM WOULD NOT BE THIS PETTY AND CHILDISH TO TAKE THE TIME TO PEN SUCH A COMMENT TO THIS SITE.
PLEASE, PLEASE WAKE ME UP AND TELL ME I WAS JUST DREAMING.
Well I’ll be dog gone. I never thought the day would come when I saw the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas answering an online news service. SOMETHING MUSSEE REALLY GETTING HIS GOAT !!! This blog has torn holes into many things the FNM has done but the Prime Minister has NEVER responded. How come he responds HIMSELF when Sharon Turner’s name is mentioned. Now HE making me suspicious. Does she mean THAT MUCH to him?? I think the entire NATION should be watching these people who running the country. I could speak for myself – I DO NOT HAVE MONEY TO WASTE ON PAYING FOR MS TURNER”S PLEASURE TRIPS. SERIOUS TING !
I have read your comments on the story of sharon turner. I am not surprised that she is foot to foot behind Ingraham. Where is her husband ? Wasn’t she recently married? Between Sharon and Kaye I dont know which one is following him closest because if he breaks wind, they enhale it. Nonethe less he deserves good press coverage however, there are those int he employ who could do the same job, Or can they? I guess it depends on what the job is. I salute the Bahamas Press for keeping Bahamians abreast of what is going on. I salute BP because you owe no one.
Keep writing Ill keep reading and y es comemnting when the need arises. Right is right! Give those who have been in the trenches on the job, the chance regardless of their political affiliation. I could write for days because there is so much I would like to say. Another time, another day. God Bless the Bahamas and its people.
Now when we saw this posted on our blog, we could not stop laughing to the floor. The last person we would have thought to rush out of the House and come quickly online would be the Prime Minister.
But yes he did. Bahamas Press is breaking such strong news these days, doing the job of the ‘WUTLESS Media’, we never thought the Prime Minister would be so ‘locked down’ monitoring this website. But yes he is. On May 21, 2008 9:37:13 PM EDT Bahamas Press received this email from the Prime Minister Hubert Alexander Ingraham’s ( comment: ‘Thank You, Fred!’ )
Now for whatever reason, individuals keep coming on this BLOG and referencing the names of individuals is BEYOND US! Bahamas Press is a COMPILATION of writers who have band together and formed this web of TRUTH!
So NO Bahamas Press is not Fred WHOEVER nor P. Anthony White, nor anyone else. IT IS BAHAMAS PRESS!
Now Mr. Ingraham can you please answer our question or should we give an answer?
