Bahamas Press has learned former Minister of Works, Bradley Roberts, will once again run for Chairman of the Progressive Liberal Party.
Sources deep in the PLP tell us, “Roberts is the man, and like Hubert, he’s back! We’ve been working on his’ return from May 2, 2007 and finally, he has decided to give us front line artillery support.”
It is believed with Roberts’ return, a sweeping political machine with grab hold of the party, including a host of political writers and foot soldiers, who will move into the engine of the PLP and awake the sleeping political giant.
Roberts team landed him the name ‘BIG BAD BRAD’ in Bahamian politics, as he lead the PLP into victory as Chairman in 2002. Prior the PLP’s win, Robert unveiled a series of documents in the Parliament on LONG ISLAND. Things were quite calm in the House until back then, he charged that the Cabinet of Prime Minister Ingraham knew about drug activity in Long Island in 1997 and its connection to the construction and licensing of a hotel project in Morrisville. He charged that the FNM approved the project knowing its drug connection.
Those were fighting words for an FNM Government, which back then managed to portray itself as squeaky clean political organization. Roberts proved opposite when Ingraham challenged him to produce the evidence. In response, Roberts laid on the table of the House a heap of documents that had been circulated around The Bahamas.
‘BIG BAD BRAD‘ Roberts, then turned his CANNON GUN on FNM front line politicians and began to bury them one by one. From Tommy and Dion with the school contract scandals, to Brent Symonette and the airport contract sandal, Roberts buried them all, but did not seal their political coffins.
Another source in the belly of the party says, “We had Roberts in our Parliamentary meeting on Sunday, and boy all we saw was blood in his eyes. This time Roberts says he’s coming back to seal their political coffins for good.”
