No one could have seen then what we know now, but when Pindling FIRED Ingraham and Christie from his Cabinet in the 1980s, it was for reasons known ONLY to him at the time. Pindling knew that ‘TRAITORS’ were on board the ship of state. But today as Bahamians look around and see the state of the Bahamian economy, they now see what Pindling saw, a TRAITOR on board. WAKE UP BAHAMAS, WE NEED CHANGE!
Nassau, Bahamas: Hubert Ingraham must think that we in the Bahamas can be duped easily with his almost daily false statements to this country. With all the crime, bloodshed, collapse of the judiciary and unrest by the unemployed particularly here in Nassau and on Grand Bahama, the ‘toothless lion’ could be heard echoing from Cuba, words casting blame on the PLP.
One must wonder if Ingraham still has sense in his head to know that he was elected Prime Minister of the country for over 18 months now. He must not know that he has decided two budgetary periods as Minister of Finance, where he has lead the LARGEST TAX INCREASE ON BAHAMIAN TAX PAYER IN THE HISTROY OF THIS COUNTRY!
HE MUST NOT KNOW THAT HE HAS FIRED OVER 1,200 WORKERS FROM THE GOVERNMENT SERVICE!
HE MUST NOT KNOW THAT HE HAS LED AN ECONOMY FROM BOOM TO BUST IN less that 18 months since coming to office.
INGRAHAM must not know HE has cause thousands of carpenters, masons, plumbers, tile layers, painters and construction workers to be OUT-OF-WORK for over one entire year now, after stopping over $90 million in government construction jobs in the Bahamas! And millions more in cancelling anchor projects.
And the man who has reaped havoc on the lives of thousands of ordinary Bahamians with his OBEAH ways, could not know that HE and no one else, has turned the standards from middle class citizens in this country to near peasants since his coming to office.
What a PARADOX to see the man who once told the Bahamian people, “I am ASHAME!” [Of Bahamians], to now today have brought shame and utter disgrace to himself in the manner in which he has DELIVERED MISMANAGEMENT with the economy to the same people he hang his head down in shame of.
Then there are the LIES and deceptive talk being spewed from the VIPER’s lips almost on a daily basis. LIE # 1 recently was told about the International Airport. Ingraham had just stood up in Parliament months before and said that the Nassau Airport Development company will find its own funding for the reconstruction of the airport. He accused the PLP at the time for causing an increase of $15 to $20 for travellers. But months later, Ingraham the Prime of LIES and disgrace now says we the Bahamian people must carry a $50 million dollar debt driven up by NAD and the new tax now to be imposed upon travellers using the facility is $25 per person.
LIE # 2 was told to the Bahamian people when Ingraham said, “YOU CAN TRUST US” because he was SIMPLY THE BEST at rallies all around the country in 2007. But look today, a Bahamian economy in recession, THOUSANDS OUT-OF-WORK and BABIES CRYING FOR FOOD! In fact he had told Grand Bahamians, “We did it before [brought investments] in Grand Bahama and we will do it again!” But today Grand Bahama is fast becoming economically brain dead, and Ingraham’s word to his goons two weeks ago was that there is nothing for Grand Bahama in the foreseeable future. NOTHING? Yes NOTHING! “YOU CAN TRUST US!”
LIE #3 was in reference to the act of corporal punishment. Ingraham told his goons again that his AG was in Europe, “Defending the right for the Bahamas to uphold corporal punishment.” And in less then 36 hours later that same AG, who do not know his hand from his foot, was promising to a FOREIGN BODY, to take corporal punishment off the books. So when would we have known that? Because Hubert said he sent him to defend the Bahamas right to it. Or was Hubert being the usual DECEPTIVE TRAITOR he usually is AGAIN?
Ingraham cannot fix his mouth fast enough to LIE to the Bahamian people and at the same time RAKE opportunity after OPPORTUNITY from the young in this country. What other WUTLESS government would go to such great lengths and hang such a tight noose around the Bahamian people’s neck? Almost every time he has the chance he has borrowed money to give to a foreign company, whilst Bahamian businesses are struggling to keep jobs and stay open.
The Ingraham government recently burrowed over $110 MILLION and awarded it to an Argentine company to put tar on the Bahamians road. ONLY HUBERT INGRAHAM WOULD DO SUCH A THING TO THE PEOPLE HE IS ASHAME OF! Did not a Bahamian company tar the Tonique Darling Highway and the money stayed here? Did not a Bahamian company widen the Blue Hill road area? Did not several Bahamian companies build the extension on the Milo Butler Highway now underway? But Ingraham comes back and being the ‘LACKEY’ he is, and has burrowed money on behalf of us to give to another NON-BAHAMIAN company? WHAT A TRAITOR!
When will we all wake up and accept that Hubert Alexander Ingraham is NOT ON OUR SIDE? WE CANNOT TRUST HIM WITH OUR FUTURE ANYMORE! HE HAS BROUGHT THIS EVIL ON US BAHAMIANS! The young and old who sit at home and cannot find a job in this town. And with all this we at Bahamas Press can assure you, this is just the beginning. There is much more hardship to come, thanks to Ingraham!
