Nassau, Bahamas — There is one serious question members of the WUTLESS MEDIA and MEMBERS OF THE JUDICIAL AND LEGAL SERVICES COMMISSION must begin to ask themselves and that question is, “WHAT WAS SIR MICHAEL DOING UP IN ‘LIZZY’ [Elizabeth] THE SAME TIME HUBERT INGRAHAM COULD BE HEARD CUSSING–OUT–STINK RESIDENTS?”
No one wants to touch it. The press is mute over it. The legal fraternity is speechless. What was the CJ doing, CAMPAIGNING WITH INGRAHAM?
Bahamas Press has eyewitnesses, including a More94FM talk show host who told his listening audience, he personally also saw the CJ in his car in the area.
Bahamas Press would not dismiss the comments made by tired Carl Bethel who rushed to the station to clear up the matter. Bethel agreed with our report saying the goons of the Prime Minister was up in Elizabeth, but said the CJ is a citizen, and he can go where he wishes. Hmmmmmm!
In a press statement circulated to members of the WUTLESS BIAS MEDIA, the FNM said:
The Free National Movement absolutely denies a mischievous rumour being circulated by Internet and radio thatthe Hon. Chief Justice, Sir Michael Barnett, was at any time on Sunday past driving through the ElizabethConstituency with the Prime Minister, or anybody else in a political capacity.
In fact, it appears that during the morning when it is alleged that the Chief Justice was driving in the area of the Elizabeth Constituency he was, in fact, attending a church service. [BP NOTES THE RED MASS WAS ALREADY FINISHED BEFORE 1230:PM]
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham was indeed driving in the Elizabeth Constituency on Sunday past. He was, at different times, accompanied by Party Chairman CarlBethel, Alfonso “Boogaloo” Elliott, Dr. Ronald Knowles, Aaron “KiKi” Knowles , and no one else.
The FNM would like to urge the Bahamian public and especially the people of the Elizabeth Constituency to be on guard against rumours that are bound to be churned out by the PLP’s rumour mill in the run-up to the by-election.
We also call on PLP Leader Perry Christie to repudiate the purveyors of this kind of mischief–making that does no credit to the political process and can do irreparable damage to our national institutions.” The statement read.
As far as damage to the institution of the Judiciary we say, the FNM has done colossal damage already!
Everyone in Bahamaland knows Bahamas Press is a bold voice in this community. We circulate information from the PLP, theFNM, the NDP, the BDM and from the Workers Party . We have the most independent voice this country has ever seen and so for the statement to suggest someone should be “quelling rumours” then they had better been think again.
We at BP are concerned, deeply concern, with the FNM’s deep, nasty and rotten umbilical ties to the Chief Justice of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. We are concerned because former CJ Sir Burton Hall warned the executive of such NASTINESS prior to him demitting office. We are concerned about this because it is strange to hear former Cabinet Minister in a New York minute turns from an Attorney General – at the beginning of the week – is CJ by the end of the week. These kinds of “NASTY APPOINTMENTS” only occur in countries like Zimbabwe and North Korea.
Bahamas Press in its full form, gripped with its newfound editorial supremacy, asks the FNM, why would Carl Bethel continue to speak for and on behalf the Chief Justice? The CJ sits in an independent branch of government and can speak for himself! He needs no help from the FNM or does he?
In any case, we in the REAL fourth estate of government – free from the claws of MUGABE – cries SHAME ON THE CJ for his political meddling in Elizabeth over the weekend and we cry SHAME ON THE FNM for responding on behalf of Sir Michael once again!
WE NEED CHANGE!
