Last week the JCNP held a meeting and during that meeting LES JOHNSON announced that the OFFICIAL winners of the 2008 Boxing Day Parade is the Shell Saxon Superstars.
The next day Bahamas Press brought out the story and the WUTLESS MEDIA read Bahamas Press and started calling up Les Johnson and his sidekick Kishlane O’brien for comments and information. The story took a twist! Instead of Johnson and O’brien telling the press that the Saxons were the OFFICIAL winners, they said there would be a meeting that night to finalize things after which an announcement would be made – The FIRST crooked step in this mess.
That next day, instead of making the announcement as he told the press, Les Johnson boarded a flight bound for Trinidad and Tobago to watch Carnival – The SECOND crooked step in this mess.
Les Johnson came back from Carnival, still acknowledging the Saxons as the OFFICIAL winners, told certain Junkanoo leaders that he will make an official announcement to that end and notify them when he would do it. Instead Les Johnson, UNBEKNOWNST to the JCNP members or Junkanoo leaders sneakily made an announcement to the press on SUNDAY evening stating that the Valley Boys were the Official winners beating out the Saxons by a mere TWO (2) points – The THIRD crooked step in this mess.
After making his sneaky announcement, as usual, Les Johnson did his famous MAGICAL DISAPPEARING ACT. He refused to answer his cell phone and of course the lying staff where he works never seems to know where he is.
No one in the JCNP knows how Les Johnson derived to the conclusion he did about the Valley Boys winning by two points. No one can back up his sneaky little story.
While we are talking about this crooked nonsense the JCNP did led by this man Les Johnson let us explore the function of the JCNP. What is the function? No one really knows but to Bahamas Press it would appear that the function of the JCNP is to PISS OFF ALL JUNKANOOERS. This JCNP emerged out of the Junkanoo Development Association which emerged out of the Junkanoo Leaders Association.
The best association for Junkanoo was the National Junkanoo Corporation until Gus Cooper went crazy and tried to fight the members.
The JCNP, as far as Bahamas Press is concerned is a USELESS body led by people who obviously want to be boss over NOTHING. Les Johnson cant even lead his own group, Roots, so how can he lead a Junkanoo Association? The man doesn’t even show up to Bay Street to rush with his group. How many times has he been noticeably absent from the parade.
Over the years Johnson ran Roots, a group which was born out of the grand ideas of attorney Paul Knowles and banker Peter Turnquest, into the ground. He is NOT respected as the leader of that group and has POOR POOR business practices as he OWES everyone and DUCKS everyone he owes. He CROOKS everyone out of anything that he can – even his own business partners.
Les Johnson is a crook in everything he does and should be removed PERMANENTLY from the Junkanoo world! His expulsion from this Bahamian expression of art should begin with Roots Junkanoo group. After they are finished with him then other members of this insane JCNP need to kick him out and all his cohorts.
Les Johnson or should we say LESS Johnson has created the worse MIX UP and MAYHEM the Junkanoo world has ever seen. He out did himself this time and as usual he is nowhere to be seen.
To the Junkanooers, who work tirelessly to secure a win on Bay Street, Bahamas Press says hold your heads up and push forward to your win. To LESS Johnson Bahamas Press says with the LITTLE manhood you have left, please do this country a favour and RELIEVE the Junkanoo world by doing your usual DISAPPEARING ACT.
