Nassau, Bahamas – Like red devil worshipers on the most holy day of the week, the Free National Movement Leadership will have a Cabinet meeting today [SUNDAY]. Sources in the FNM tell us the government will enter the boiler room with much hostility. Once again Hubert Ingraham will land Tommy T and Dion a silly ‘cussin’ session.
A source with intimate knowledge of the FNM told BP in a secret meeting held Tuesday of last week that Papa cuss out Tommy and Dion stink. The source said, “Papa was overheard saying you two are wutless, I should have known better than to put you two in charge, I should have remembered how you two messed up in 2002. You caused me to spend plenty money in Lizzy, you two have no shame.” The source said that these two fellas careers are finished in the FNM.
It is alleged that hollering and weeping was coming from the room and the source did not know whether it was Tommy or Dion or both who were hollering and weeping. Carl Bethel was said to have pulled a Pontius Pilate, and was said to have told Papa” you fired me three times, these two idiots pulled rank on me and overrode every decision i made, it is their fault”.
But FNM Leader is already in a bind. It was just last week during the evening following the by-election in Elizabeth Ingraham told Party supporters, he will not challenge the out come of the by-election in Lizzy. Ingraham said, “We are democrats and we believe elections are held on the ground and not in a court room.”
However, only days after those words were echoed from the man who “means what he says , and says what he means”, the FNM plans to take up the matter in court and also raise issues with the election court sources in the FNM tells BP. “A planned press conference is slated for today and in that press conference, we plan to tell the people our plans to appear in the Election Court to further argue that the seat rightfully belongs to Duane Sands.”
BP has further news, which confirms that the FNM is on a dangerous downhill roller coaster ride.
Ingraham is believed to have outspent the PLP 3:1 in the Elizabeth by-election. Ingraham we know, has failed to tell the Bahamian people that one of the chief fundraisers of the UBP, Sir Durward Knowles, who raised and delivered more than $1 million for the Elizabeth by-election.
BP understands that money raised was placed in the hands of Tommy T, Dion and Carl ‘Undernourished’ Bethel. BP insider in the FNM has informed us that Sir Durward is HOT and is spitting mad following the outcome. “Sir D is strongly mad and believes that some of the money went into the pocket of one of the FNM bigwigs who led the campaign. The Party’s leadership is investigating this crime and will soon deal with the matter.”
Bahamas Press source also said, one of the persons believed to be at the centre of this was seen spending $100 bills like it was going out of style. Your BP has learnt that the Party spent more than $1.5 million outside of the funds submitted by Sir Durward and this is not all.
“This is not added with all the capital development works; road, streetlights, the drainage system, the naming of the streets and the extended hours for the clinic and library in the area.
“We spent all that money and you mean to tell me we could not muster more than 2 votes? And when you add all that up you must remember Duane Sands used a substantial amount of his own money in his bid,” the FNM source said.
We are investigating new information which has come to our attention, we have been told of an Inspector who lives in Lizzy and had eight votes in her house, it is alleged that her contract was extended on the spot, we wonder which Minister could do that? We will check with our sources in the High Command of the RBPF and confirm the name of the individual shortly.
Papa is hot as a goat pepper and we expect some of the goons who were toting news to Papa to get cuss out today. They were telling Papa that a Minister was not doing any work in a certain polling division; however, this polling division was the one that brought in the most votes for the FNM. Certain other Ministers including the one we call the Pillsbury Dougboy were in the headquarters smoking cigars provided by Sandy and eating up all the food.
Carl Bethel, Duane Sands and the Pillsbury Doughboy in Lizzy on the campaign trail.
