Woman in the crowd told BP – “Same shit -different day!” Selling Dreams 2.0! Hanna Martin keeping in touch with BP live in Mayaguana.... ‘Selling Dreams 2.0′ is on the move! Nassau, Bahamas – Christie and the crew selling dreams went to Mayaguana this Easter Monday to welcome the first Bahamasair flight to the island in five years. This is good news for the island that recently witnessed tragedy when three persons lost their lives on a runways full of holes, left in place by the Ingraham regime. But what was interesting was that Christie was just talking – again. Telling the people of that community his same ole line of peas and rice, guava duff and rum punch. There was nothing new. Looks like the government is busy having ceremonies, hauling the media along, and then, selling some new dream to the hopeful [Shake head]. As Christie spoke, the rain began to fall. The sky was crying and we know not – if it was tears of joy or sadness. Nothing is happening for Mayaguana even though the people have stayed loyal to the PLP. The times are bad – real bad. Plenty talk – no action. And so, while Christie spoke, we noticed that people started to look for buckets to catch water in the leaky terminal hanger where the ceremony was being held. The rusty hanger is just as bad as the former runway. But there was no promise to fix that. Christie said when he comes back he will talk about economic opportunities. YEAH, RIGHT! Plenty talk – slow on action… But we could not help but overhear a woman who was in the terminal who said loud enough so we could hear even as Christie spoke, she said, “…same shit different day!” We report yinner decide!  Read More →

Retiree Ruth Miller heads back to work. Mayaguana, The Bahamas – Former Financial Secretary Mrs. Ruth Miller has been appointed to head a committee made up of persons from the private and public sectors to advise the Government on the way forward as liberalization in the telecommunications industry comes on stream. The Prime Minister revealed this much to a gathering at the Mayaguana Airport to celebrate the return of Bahamasair after five years and the airport’s newly refurbished runway. Prime Minister Perry G. Christie announced the possibility of a new company coming into the Bahamas to compete with the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) in a liberalized telecommunications environment. The liberalization era comes out of an agreement made between the former Government and Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) on their majority share purchase in BTC and the continued privatization of the industry. The Prime Minister said while he did not wish to forecast it, nonetheless, new competition should result in cheaper prices and improved services which are often the results of free market competition. “This is usually what takes place,” he said. “We have embarked on the process. Bahamians will be given a choice as whether to stay with BTC or another provider,” he said. Well its looks like the New Generation of the PLP reaches back to the barrel of retirees once again. And so its official Retired Financial Secretary Ruth Miller will now head up the team to continue the plan of introducing new telephony businesses in the country. Can they CHANGE or are they the same? Another big disappointment from the Christie Regime…  Read More →

Government worker puts in 1/2 an hour of work weekly, collects a full salary, housing allowance and lives in Florida! Prime Minister Christie confronted outside the Cabinet Office by key generals from Centreville who cannot get an audience with him. Generals have warned Christie that a new day is coming in 2017. PM Christie should call for a real staff audit  in the department before the Bahamian people uncover the details on Bahamas Press Nassau, Bahamas – Some are beginning to believe a senior member in the Christie Cabinet is regularly swilling a bottle of Haitian Rum before and after he joins the Cabinet table, ‘cause when BP examines what is going on in his ministry, one can only come to that conclusion. Sources deep in the department tell us the Minister, who is MP for a northern family island seat, has promoted top generals of the opposition party within the department. But it gets worse; the employee we focus on today is a relative of the Minister. And here is where our story gets better. Bahamas Press has learnt that, since promotions within the department the employee has become an untouchable, collecting a full salary along with a lavish housing allowance – all paid for by taxpayers. In documents shown to BP, the employee’s half hour once a week contribution is communicated to the department via email from community of Port St. Lucie, Florida. And according to our sources deep within the department, the government employee has taken up a second job in that Florida community. What in the hell is dis? We are told the “untouchable” was first transferred into the department under the Ingraham regime, but was for years employed by the Broadcasting Corporation of the Bahamas. And it gets worse. Recently, the BARBANCOURT horse backing Minister hired a red gal out of one of the dying dinos [WUTLESS MEDIA DEM] to do the work of his relative so she would have absolutely nothing to do and collect money from the public purse; while we the Bahamian people wait on the regime’s indecision and lack of public education on VAT! Bahamas Press is now on the move looking through documents and paper trails of the soon outgoing regime, and we will report how another BARBANCOURT swindling MP racked up a $48,000 credit card bill on the public purse while in London for four days… Selling Dreams to the Bahamians People – das the best we’ll get from the Christie Regime! Boy I tell ya! Someone gats to be serving that Haitian rum around the Cabinet Table every Tuesday! BP will report and let yinner decide!  Read More →

Only two officers kept watch over the migrants all evening and night until this morning. They should be given a medal. Who was the captain? Were any persons drowned? Those questions have yet to be answered. Repatriation exercises are taking a toll on limited tax dollars. Some are beginning to believe this is big business for rogue immigration officers and businesspersons who are reaping thousands in the trade of humans. Already the Detention Centre in New Providence has over 200 illegals being housed and awaiting repatriation. With the additional 140 today, the centre will be housing people beyond its capacity!
