A BRAVE NEW BAHAMAS IS UPON US! DAVIS WINS BY A BLOWOUT!

brave-davisNassau BahamasBahamas Press all day had lifted up in prayer one of our finest, noblest sons who WILL serve his country well as he moves into the office as Deputy Leader of the Progressive Liberal Party. Mr. Philip “Brave” Davis is now the number two-man in the organization.

We praise him because he is like no other we’ve seen for a longtime in Bahamian politics. He is humble, youthful and READY! Like a divine messenger sent from the Most High, thousands of Bahamians across the length and breadth of this country have felt the warmth from the Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador MP. We, like Laura Williams and scores of others, had thrown our support behind BRAVE DAVIS, 100%, and here’s why.

When Hubert Ingraham decided to suspend the Education Loan Guarantee Scheme and dashed the opportunity for higher education for thousands of students, BRAVE DAVIS became the voice against this ‘VICKED’ ACTION! He told Ingraham this was wrong and offered solutions to fix the crisis. He is the man for CHANGE!

When nefarious land barons in this country were taking family islanders land, Brave Davis stood in Parliament and took them on. No one else could be heard fighting for the people’s land. No one else took on Ingraham but “Brave” was BRAVE.

When the nurses of this country were hollering all over the place for their insurance coverage and saw the time had come to protect those who stand on the front line of healthcare in this country, ONLY Brave Davis could be heard telling Hubert in Parliament to cover and protect the nurses. He is a CHANGE agent!

And when we saw the bloody acts of violence and the collapse of our Criminal Justice System, Philip Brave Davis began to suggest that the time has come for an overhaul! He is the only candidate who has addressed, in detail, this issue. Brave Davis has tackled the issue of young people being slaughtered all over our nation and has stood committed in solving our NUMBER ONE PROBLEM; GROWING CRIME AND A FAILED JUSTICE SYSTEM!!!!!!

As we heard on his commercial blitz taking the airwaves by storm, “Brave is a man with integrity, honesty and his word is his bond! He is a kind man and generous man. A hardworking man. He can reach the younger generation. Brave has been a father, he’s a mentor, he’s been a Leader, and he’s definitely a good man! He’s a God sent man and so we went with Philip “Brave” Davis all the way with this!” Why?

BECAUSE HE GETS THINGS DONE!

  1. This anti press is engaged in a serious campaign to totally discredit XChristie so am flabbergasted that some are surprised when fair minded persons come to0 his defence.I dont care what the FNM does as they have planted seeds of dissention so deep it will take generations to erase.It is mind blogging as to why some persons still support despots like Castro but from comments made on this site I see why as special interest groups you are surely a part of.

  2. To Bahamas youth, when you cannot learn how to keep the points made without cussing, I will evoke my editorial powers and delete your comments completely.

    Some people seem to think that HAI will call an election early like you claim, but i dont think so.

    If I were HAI, i would ride this thing out as long as i could. There are some signs that life is starting to come back into the US economy and if the US economy starts picking at an accelerated pace towards the end of 2010 the bahamian economy wont be too far behind. HAI has placed his bet on the US economy turning around enough to where the Bahamas starts seeing benefits from it by mid to late 2011.

    It makes no sense to call an early election when the mood of the country is not in your favor. The smart thing to do is to just wait it out as long as you can and thats probably what HAI will do.

    The PLP just has to be ready for whenever the bell is rung.

  4. @Bahamasyouth
    When is your Leader HAI going to apologise to the country for all of his mistakes in stopping,cancelling and reviewing contracts?When is your Leader going to apologise for butchering the POlice,Customs and Immigration?Stop being selective and looking at the other side of the fence when your side is mired in garbage.From now on I shall match you word for word.And now you BP how come you have not had a seperate heading for Pc resounding victory?Being the man he is he has also apologised to his opponentys in the party for any transgression he might have.Now thats a man,who will now have all the troops rally to his defence from now on.Big bad Brad am ready to assist you in rolling out the stench and garbage.

  5. Bahamasyouth :@RupertIm very calm! I just hope Altec and co listened carefully to Perry Christie’s speech. He said yes he made some mistakes and for that I finally have some respect for mr christie who admit his own Mistakesssssss and not livin in a fairy tale like Aletc and co

What Im saying is people LIKE YOU are DESTROYING ANY CHANCES of THE PLP WINNING in 2012. You want to point on all of the FNM flaws when every single last one was only of national interest when THE DAMN PLP made all Bahamians look STUPID or GREEDY. OK Its different to have some wrongful actions NATIONALLY compared to INTERNATIONALLY.
    LEARN TO TRY FIX YOUR OWN PARTY BEFORE TRYING TO POINT OUT FNM MISTAKES. STOP BEING BIAS. LEARN TO BE OPEN MINDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The PLP are making the SAME EXACT mistakes they made in 2007 UNTIL THEN I WILL SUPPORT THE FREE NATIONAL MOVEMENT.
    Boy YAl people in the PLP are so damn arrogant til its not funny….NAME ME ONE CONTROVERSY in the last 20 years which led to INTERNATIONAL COVERAGE under the FNM administration?
    LEARN to UNDERSTAND TAKE IT and CORRECT PLP’s. Im a Open minded person who just HATE to see what the plp is doing. Put Brave Davis as leader or Fred Mitchel as leader and try to BRING IN MORE SUPPORTERS instead of feeding the same old TIRED PLP’s BASE who mussy in their 60’s+ who would be Lucky to see 2012

    JOKES! BP, all the crap that you spoke about for the past few months has gotten you no where… don’t you thing its time you get on board? The PLP’s convention is just about over now, how about you using some of that energy to work on those other guys (fnm).

  10. Say Tuned Mrs. Christie, you will soon hear what we have to say about the BIG win by Christie. It ain’t long now!

    Bahamas Press/ Editor

  11. Thats not a denial BP. You said on this blog months ago when you thought your boy BJ would win that if Christie some how survived, you would be the first to congratulate him. Its been 24 hours and just as we expected, not a word from you or the boy with the girl’s name. Your credibility, if you ever had any, must be minus zero now and your maturity is non existent. I can’t say that i am surprised.

  12. BP, you are Mugabe….Erasing peoples comments…welcome to the world of being a dictator..you ‘Vicked’ traitor of free speech

  13. Picewell was a part of a bigger plan when he spoke Wednesday night and that was to promote Obie’s agenda, but you know I heard Obie quoting the Bible plenty recently, God don’t sleep and he don’t slumber! The whole thing back fired on them. This goes to the heart of ineffective leadership, Obie had all three of his surrogates speaking the night before people voted whilst the others had no one. He should have never been in charge of the convention. Save for the campaign this convention was a flop. Again if they had a different chairman one who was not involved in an election that person would have put more effort into the actual convention. I hope PC learning from all of this because next time he will not win.

    Well if your charge to lead the defeat of the PLP in 2012 is anything like your charge to lead the removal of PC as leader of the party then i wholeheartedly endorse your charginess.

    No weapon formed against us shall prosper!

  18. media :
    Bahamas Press has more than 150,000 daily readers. The PLP had less than 1,400 voters cast their ballots in this race. I’ll put it this way, DO THE MATH!
    Bahamas Press/Editor
    [Reply]

    BP, well your 150,000 readers didnt buy into your crap you been pushing for the last year and a half against PC. Had they, PC wouldnt have been RELECTED leader by over 80% of the delegates.

    I guess none of the 1,400 voters at the PLP convention today are daily readers of Bahamas Press.

    You dont have the influence you think you do my brother. Your 150,000 daily readers, of which i am one, arent 150,000 anti PC votes nor do we drink your kool aid. You dont seem to get that. People make up their own minds. Your readers arent blind followers. They dont take what you post as gospel seeing that most of the time you are wrong.

    You been prophet-lying for the longest about how PC will loose his leadership post and it didnt happen. Your dark horse was suppose to snatch victory away from the PC and it didnt happen. You lost credibility my brother.

    So your site is popular, so what. What tonight’s leadership election should have taught you is that you arent as influential as you think. But its nice to see that you are so humble after your dark horses combined only got 227 votes out of 1,385.

    [Reply]

    Dear Bahamasyouth, maybe its your youth that has you so forgetful so let me refresh your memory then i am going to bed.

    First of, maybe you have forgotten the races in 2002 for leader in the FNM after HAI said he wasnt going to run. The entire FNM field basically cleared for Tommy and Deion. Maybe you forgot that or maybe you didnt know what was going on at the time.

    Maybe you forgot how Brent pulled a Fred Mitchell and flirted and flirted with running for leader, then at the last minute chickened out and didnt run. Why you think that happened?

    Maybe you forgot Tommy T telling the country in the midst of the rumors of a HAI return that he spoke to HAI and HAI told him out his own mouth that he wasnt coming back. Tommy wasnt even the leader of the FNM for 4 good years. Why you think that was?

    Where was the cry from the FNM youth? A coup was going on right in front of the FNM youth and they said nothing. This talk about giving the youth a shot was and is a bunch a bull.

    The entire FNM establishment went behind Tommy leading up to the 2002 election. At the time he wasnt seen as weak. At the time no one was saying Tommy cant do the job. It was as the elections of 2007 drew near that the same people from HAI camp who threw their weight behind Tommy abandoned him and went back to Mr Ingraham.

    The same people who was talking bull about the next generation of FNM leaders jumped ship when HAI came back. Point ic case, Frank Watson. He was instrumental in paving the way for Tommy and he turned right around and stabbed him in his back and rejoined HAI.

    Its all about winning. Each party picks who they think gives them the best chance. The FNM dropped Tommy at the drop of a hat for a better candidate. Well, the PLP dropped Paul Moss and BJ and chose to stick with what they have in PC.

    This nonsense, that no one is challenging HAI is just that, crap. Which governing party has its leader challenged? NONE! So thats a dumb point you made. If PC was PM you think BJ, Fred and Paul Moss would challene him? I know you smarter than that.

  21. @Bahamasyouth
    When you are blind and confused anything goes.I agree the press is very powerful and obviously anti PLP.I will update on the many scadals that are unresolved by the FNM:
    (1) Granting of contracts during the Leader elect elections in 2001 by Tommy and Deon Foulkes.None went to prison..
    (2) Lost of $135,000 allegedly given to a company for an aircraft,HAI promised to collect but 8 yrs later dead silence.Former Deputy Prime Minister Watson was involved.
    (3) Bahamas Customs lost Revenue when mona vie juice tariff was decreased to benefit the family of a Minister called 10/45.He sue4d everyona and their ma to stop public discussion.
    (4) Stop,cancel review has resulted in job losses and opportunities for the who;e country all because of politics.
    (5) Cancellation of the Urban Renewal Programme has resulted in an increase in Murders,filthyness and young men turning to animals.
    I will stop now but need to know why this stupid,inept confused Govt. has fired everyone and their ma because they thought they might be PLP.CDR will cause this stupid Govt. to lose plenty sleep.We know you scared and have seen the large crowd that no longer cares what you do to them.Hope has returned and the Bahamian people just love what they will see.

  22. Bahamas Press has more than 150,000 daily readers. The PLP had less than 1,400 voters cast their ballots in this race. I’ll put it this way, DO THE MATH!

    The Tribune cusses the PLP all the time. They said Obie will make a good leader, how come that didn’t happen? This does not suggest the paper has no influence. I hope they whale Christie you know what next week!

  24. I am a voting delegate but a bit disapointed at our results in two weeks when the FNM hold there convention and elect young leaders WE WILL BE DESTROYED By the young voters my fellow PLP’s where is OUR YOUTHS IN LEADERSHIP???????????????????????????

  25. Well Jr. and to all others inside the PLP! Mark this and note this well. Yinner victor o PC will be Short lived. Mark it down, what yall do and see in the PLP is what yinner decided. BP is on the outside of the Party and is NOT, I repeat, NOT connected to the inside!

    We said then if yinner want Christie then fine, but I tell ya one thing, go into the General Elections with him and watch us lead the Charge on the PLP’s defeat in 2012. We said this before and yes, your hearing it again! BP will not endorse a PLP lead by Perry Gladstone Christie!

    Bahamas Press/Editor

  26. @media
    YES POINT HIM OUT!

    LETS SEE WHAT HE WILL DO WITH BIG MOUTH PICEWELL FORBES….

    This is the same exact EXACT reasons why I really dont like to align myself with the PLP. People Like Altec and co. always want to bring in the blame card instead of fixing their own deck of cards.

    I dont Think ALETC and Co understand the importance of YOUNG VOTER’s….. Theodore Seally stated that there were NOT much young supporters at the PLP CONVENTION. And let me remind you that THE YOUNG VOTERS voted Hubert Ingrham in in 92 and even more young voters Kicked out Perry Christie.

    WE NEED CHANGE!!!!!!!
    THE PLP needs CHANGE if they want to win the next elections. TRUST ME AND YOU….. IF Branville McCartney gets dept. leader I can CONFIRM that the PLP’s days are over. The PLP dont even have someone who is young and has some experience. Fred Mitchel is the only person who comes to mind and comes close enough HOWEVER his status (married/Single) is a serious problem.

    I guess its true the BASE of the PLP are OLD People and people who are die hard PLP’s.

  27. BP saw this beating coming. I told him weeks ago that the delegates were coalescing around PC and he was hearing and seeing the same thing but he didnt believe what he was seeing or hearing.

    I believe wholeheartedly that Fred changed his mind at the last minute and left BP and the others out to dry. BP & Co thought they were real insurgents but Fred chickened out at the end.

    I would ive anything to have been in that meeting with BP & Co when Fred told them he wasnt going to throw his hat into the ring.

  28. Altec Please learn to understand and take in Criticism. I found plenty plenty respect to Alfred Grey and Vincette Pette who was UPFRONT and understand the reasons why they lost in the first place….. BOTH said Perry is a great leader but they would perfer if he was more aggressive in making his own decisions and bringing LAW AND ORDER to his administrations. Bahamians dont like now second chances……. Atleast LET VIOLATORS know what they did was wrong and he should enforce consequences.

    Let me remind you that THE WICKED FNM ran a WHOLE CAMPAIGN On.. T-R-U-S-T and WON!!!!!!….. We all know that the Bahamians have serious trust issues with the FNM however THE PLP action showed more CORRUPTION.

    Let Me FRESH YINNA MEMORIES:
    1. Picewell Forbes speech which led to a Mistrial in The Pleasent’s court case.
    2. Cambridge (PLP TREASURE) Money laundering case
    3. Shane Gibson and Anna Nicole pictures and gifts.
    4. Pleasent Bridgewater’s court case
    5. Ron Pinder’s alleged actions in CUBA

    All of them have made THE BAHAMIANS LOOKED BAD… Furthermore Perry Gladestone Christie was leader during all these controversy and has yet issued CONSEQUENCE not TO ONE INDIVIDUAL. Now I wont touch the dial with some other controversial actions which drew in national interest.

    DONT GET ME WRONG FNM HAS ITS SHARE OF CONTROVERSY HOWEVER NEVER HAD BAD PUBLICITY LIKE THE PLP.

  29. Kim Sands :
    BP where you is? What you have to say about this? Like it or not the writing is on the wall and I think congratulation is in order.
    [Reply]

    You are not the only one who has called BP out on this. There is no reason as to why he didnt or couldnt post the voting results. He found time to post congratulations to Brave, but none to Brad or PC. Thats really weak!

    His silence is unusual.

    Well if you are a free thinker, then why is it so hard for you to admit that the FNM in 2007, chopped of a young man at the knees and installed an older man to lead them to victory!

    @Altec
    I dont think you have a grasp of how powerful it is when you are walking around when the young and the old are calling for you to return…Hubert runs a tight ship
    [Reply]

    Wait a minute Red, your changing your argument now. Your original premise was that PC is blocking the youth from coming to the forefront.

    I countered with reminding you of what HAI did to Tommy.

    Now your saying that the young and the old in the FNM reject youth leadership (Tommy T) and went for the leadership of a much older, experienced politician (HAI)?

    You are making my argument for me.

    So i ask again, how is it that when it happens in the FNM its not seen as holding back the youth, but when it happens in the PLP yall FNM’s want to talk nonsense about the old guard holding on to power?

    I remind you PC won almost 5 to 1 over BJ and 50 to 1 over Paul Moss, the man who supposedly had all the youth behind him. Truth be told, he never had the youth in the party behind him. The man only got 23 votes. 23! The PLP has way more than 23 voting delegates under 40. Paul Moss got no traction. The votes dont lie, Paul Moss as a candidate for leader never caught on.

    Stop listening to the talk shows and assuming that the response on the talk shows is reflective of what was/is happening in the party or country. Thats the mistake Paul Moss made. The man believed his own press!

  36. BP why havent you posted the election results? If i have the info i know you have it too. You need to post the election results.

    I cant believe how quiet you have gone.

    Man up man and congratulate PC. If the shoe was on the other foot i would have congratulated Fred Mitchell. We are all PLP’s.

    The election is now over, its time to move on. Do the right thing. If you post a story about Brave, you must in the interest of fairness do one for PC and Bradley Roberts.

    that was a different case all together, How I remember it is the people spoke and Tommy listened
    [Reply]

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!JOKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How is that different. HAI had previouly told Tommy that the rumors of him coming back were just rumors. Then a few weeks later at the convention someone nominated him and he didnt decline the nomination.

    YOU SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT!

    Tommy didnt even challenge MR Inraham cause word came down, YOU DONT WANT TO CHALLENGE MR INRAHAM. Tommy just folded his tent and went into the corner like he was told. Brent and his forces all sided with HAI. That was the signal, if your not with HAI, you get no financial support.

    At the PLP convention Paul Moss and BJ went head to head with PC and they lost DEMOCRATICALLY! The PLP’s leadership race was more democratic than the FNM’s leadership race in 2007.

    And thats the facts!

  39. Kim Sands :BJ is more than likely somewhere very hurt and embarrass, but this to shall pass. Not only did Christie beat him again, but he roll him out. It has been proven time and time that the people don’t want BJ, they prefer Christie. It is what it is. Congratulation to Mr. Christie on maintaining the leadership position of the PLP.

    PERRY CHRISTIE GIVE BJ A SERIOUS CUT SKIN ON THE EVE OF THIS B-DAY, HAPPY B-DAY BJ(IT’S TOMORROW)

    The Bahamian people spoke unequivocally in 2007 as they rejected the leadership and style of the PLP. Today’s elections indicates that the Party is out of step with the desires of the Bahamian people as the delegates elected the very leader that lead the PLPs recent implosion. Further, in electing Bradley Roberts the Party demonstrates their deep desperation as they once again embraced a bitter, angry, vindictive politician whose time has come and gone. The PLP has clearly said to young PLPs and young Bahamians, not now.

  41. @Altec
    that was a different case all together, How I remember it is the people spoke and Tommy listened…Look, Perry Christie will never never ever beat HAI..

  42. Back in 2007 when HAI droop kicked Tommy, i didnt hear no one in the FNM crying saying the old guard coming back and are hindering the youth. The FNM response to the party establishment electing HAI was that the election was a party matter and the party had spoken when it re-elected HAI.

    Yall FNM’s have a double standard. when yall do something its ok, when others try it yall seem to have problems with it.

  43. @red blooded
    Red, if PC is the old guard, then what was HAI in 2007?

    HAI back stabbed Tommy T, a young man, and kicked him to the curb. the FNMs then screwed youth, they wanted to win.

    You must learn my friend that its all about winning and PC is the PLP’s best chance of doing that just like how HAI was the best chance for the FNM in 2007.

    The re-election of Perry Christie as Leader of the Progressive Liberal Party is a victory for the old guard of the party and a blow to any serious reform by those who represent the worst days of the Pindling era and the more recent scandalous past of the party, among them a number of Mr. Christie’s cabinet appointees.
    The old guard further entrenched itself and turned its back on reform and renewal by also electing Bradley Roberts as Chairman, another symbol of some of the excesses of the party and one who is regarded as a political character assassin by many.
    Not only is any reform of the PLP highly unlikely, Mr. Christie and his supporters have made the party even more undemocratic by undercutting the power of the branches in favour of Stalwart Councillors who now make up some two-thirds of the voting power of the party at convention.
    The future of the once-mighty PLP is bleak indeed since Mr. Christie knows that most of his parliamentary colleagues have no confidence in him and he has threatened that there will be “consequences” for them. Some may find their continued presence in the PLP very uncomfortable if not untenable.

    Economy Press Release

    Frustrated by their own state of disarray and anxious to find an issue they can exploit in the next general election, PLP leaders persistently try to blame the FNM for the downturn in the economy. They are at it again in their convention.
    The extent of their desperation is clear, considering the indisputable fact that the economic crisis enveloping The Bahamas and much of the world is due not to any local causes but to external forces beyond anyone’s control.
    The FNM Government has buffered the effects of the crisis by accelerating public works including road building, the massive port project, the new airport terminal project, clean-up and beautification campaigns and the creation of more recreation spaces for the Bahamian people, especially seaside vistas and spaces.
    Furthermore, the FNM Government launched a multi-faceted national social programme to alleviate the pain of unemployed Bahamians and to help prepare for the future.
    The centrepiece of this initiative was the launching for the first time in Bahamian history of an unemployment benefit scheme. When it was announced, the PLP was so taken aback that they only mutter baseless criticisms such as suggesting that it might not be legal!
    Other elements of the FNM social response to the crisis are temporary job programmes, a national training programme and electricity assistance for thousands of distressed Bahamians.
    All this was made possible because of the solid economic and fiscal performance of the FNM in its first two terms in office after cleaning up the mess left by the PLP Government.

    Rad, come on man. This is a PARTY ELECTION, not a general election. Cant you make that distinction? PC now has less than 2 years to persuade the masses that he has unfinished business.

    One step at a time.

    if you cant see Paul Moss is an FNM plant you are blind…He will be rolling with the FNM next year…I bet you know his daddy was run several times by the FNM…With him goes what little youth vote the PLP has just, remember that was not a young person’s convention, Perry Christie has been fatally wounded.
    [Reply]

    Why you trying to mess up my night man? Lol!

    Red, Paul Moss never should have ran in the first place. For all that talking he only got 23 votes! Paul like BP was listening to the VOCAL MINORITY and actually misread where the party was.

    But Red, i dont think Paul will jump ship, at least not until after the election to see where things stand. If the PLP wins in 2012, he will stick around to see if PC throws him a bone. If nothing happens, Paul Moss will go over to the FNM or try to run as an independent.

  49. BJ is more than likely somewhere very hurt and embarrass, but this to shall pass. Not only did Christie beat him again, but he roll him out. It has been proven time and time that the people don’t want BJ, they prefer Christie. It is what it is. Congratulation to Mr. Christie on maintaining the leadership position of the PLP.

  50. @Russell Johnson
    trust me Russel, this is who HAI wants to face, the FNM will laugh back to parliament…Dont matter when election is called this is HAI’s election to lose

  51. Altec predicts:

    Bernard Nottage = will retire in the middle of PC second term. Nottage political career has taken a serious blow.

    Obie and Fred = their ambitions has been dashed. These 2 men will never be leader of the PLP.

    Paul Moss and Jerome = these two men are the same peas in a pod. These are men looking for what is politically expedient for them. These men arent trusted by party the establishment. Paul may still have a chance to regain the graces of the PLP if he humbles himself and learns to follow. How he handles himself over the next 6-12 months is crucial.
    Paul Moss was a victim of bad political advice.
    Jerome on the other hand isnt loyal to no one but Jerome. If he sees a crack he will take it. Jerome stab PC in the back, his selfishness was exposed, when he aligned himself with the Fred Mitchell camp as they, like BP, thought PC was done.

  54. JCN ust repeated the vote total for the Deputy. everyone shold be watching JCn’s coverage, theres is the best.

    Brave Davis = 767 votes (53% of the total votes)
    Obie Wilchombe = 401 votes (28% of the total vote)
    Jerome Fitzerald = 217 votes (15% of the total vote)

    Here is a quote from the prophet Bahamas Press for your enjoyment taken from a Sept 8th 2009 post :

    Bahamas Press has learned that the Dark Horse who will topple Christie at the fall convention has already galvanized support deep inside the high command of the FNM parliamentary team.

    Jokes!!!

  55. Yea BP. It appears as if cat stole your tongue, in sending out a CONGRATS to our Leader, Mr. Perry Gladstone Christie. TAKE DAT!!!!

  56. BP, are u waiting on the official results before you give PC his PRAISE?
    If so, Y? I see u gave it to PBD.

  57. Examiner :

  58. Connie :
    Ummmmm BP you give the number 2 man all the praise. You are missing Mr. Christie aren’t you I think I will have to remind you guys of all those negative articles you wrote. Maybe you can muster a small congrats to Perry Christie when you get over the bitterness.
    Good Night

    BP has no class Connie.

    Here is a quote from the prophet Bahamas Press for your enjoyment taken from Sept 12th 2009 post :

    Bahamas Press cannot say it enough and now the PLOT THICKENS! Member of Parliament for the Fox Hill constituency, Fred Mitchell, announced on national television Friday evening his intent to challenge Perry Christie for the leadership of the Progressive Liberal Party.

    Jokes!

  59. Bp, I want to say that you was dead right when you endorsed Brave.I want to extend my congrats to Brave and that team of workers that did him proud. I am sending a shoutout to all of you. Great Job.

  60. @Bahamasyouth
    With all do respect, Bahamasyouth, you like BP is full of crap.

    The youth didnt vote for the FNM in 2002 and the FNM lost. they voted for PC. In 2007 they switched and voted for an old man again in HAI. In other words, the young people are not loyal to any party.

    He who does the job of persuading them, gets them.

  61. Ummmmm BP you give the number 2 man all the praise. You are missing Mr. Christie aren’t you I think I will have to remind you guys of all those negative articles you wrote. Maybe you can muster a small congrats to Perry Christie when you get over the bitterness.

    Good Night

  62. I won’t hold my breath for BP to do the right thing. They wouldn’t know the right thing if it crawled up his nose and built a campfire there.

  63. @Altec
    Altec I really want you to understand what Perry Christie is up against. You and all yal PLP’s MUST LEARN to TAKE IN CRITICISM and stop living in a fairy tale. Perry Christie mightve won Leader maybe because people was scared to go up against him ORRR because their are not soo much young people within the party.

    Perry Christie needs to get YOUNG VOTERS like myself and honestly from what I understand hes not appealing. THE BEST PERSON WHO THEY SHOULD USE To GENERATE THE YOUNG VOTES AREEEEEEEEEEE BRAVE DAVIS!!!!!!!! Other than that Perry Gladestone Christie will not be a good representative against the FNM. And hope that Branville McCartney dont gets dept. leader because thats a LOST CASE

  64. BP can now show some sense or decency and point out that Change has in fact come to the Progressive Liberal Party. The nasty, divisive, backbiting, lowballing garbage that this site embodies was defeated and defeated soundly. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. If Brave’s hundred and something over Obie is a blow out, what do you call Christie’s 900+ vote margin on BJ Nottage? I’ll tell you what to call it. Call it an a** whopping. Beeeeeyotch!

  65. Votes for Chairman

    Bradley Roberts = 834 votes, 60% of the votes
    Glenys Martin = 367 votes, 26% of the vote
    Ken Dorsett = 141, 10% of the vote
    Keod Smith = 37 votes, 2% of the vote

    Now for your enjoyment, here is a quote from the prophet Bahamas Press taken from an Sept 13th 2009 post:

    This October Bahamas Press warns that the PLP parley will be the ‘bloodiest’ this nation has witnessed in its entire history. Perry Christie will be defeated as leader of the Progressive Liberal Party. His challengers will resign the deposed leader to the proverbial ‘Political Bone Yard’ where he will join the likes of the fallen.

  66. PC: 1,158 votes = 83 % of the total votes cast
    BJ: 204 votes = 14% of the total votes cast
    Paul Moss: 23 votes = .01% of the total votes cast

    Here is a quote from the prophet Bahamas Press taken from an Oct 6th 2009 post for your enjoyment :

    This coming OCTOBER, however, in less than 20 days, PLPs will converge in the GREATEST POLITICAL CONVENTION OF ALL TIME! In three days of conclave they will say NO to CHRISTIE! THREE DAYS OF THAT CONVENTION THEY WILL REJECT HIS WUTLESS LEADERSHIP! ON OCTOBER 22nd, Paul MOSS, Fred Mitchell, BERNARD NOTTAGE and ANOTHER DARK HORSE WILL TELL CHRISTIE GOODBYE!
    Four BRIGHT, ABLE, INTELLIGENT HORSEMEN WILL LOCK HANDS ON THE FLOOR OF THE PLP CONVENTION! They will together TOPPLE CHRISTIE!
    Together they shall deliver a ‘DEATH BLOW’ to the man who was apply described by Kenyatta Gibson as, “Arch-mediocrity, captain of all things small and petty, master of all things which are insignificant and void.” They shall together like the four horsemen of the Apocalypse remove the FAKE, LAZY, WUTLESS leader of the Progressive Liberal Party from office! Together they shall bring the first leg of CHANGE to The Bahamas!

  67. PC: 1,158 votes
    BJ: 204 votes
    Paul Moss: 23 votes

    Here is a quote from the prophet Bahamas Press taken from an Oct 11th 2009 post for your enjoyment :

    Well, October 22nd is the day for PLPs to ROLL CHRISTIE OUT! In just 11 days, PLPs will hold the power to KICK HIM OUT! It will be their time to tell Christie they do not want him around ANYMORE! It is time to VOTE HIM OUT! The time has come to send Christie into retirement. IT IS THE TIME to remind him once again, for a second time, he will make history again. Christie will become the first PLP leader to be toppled at a Convention!

  68. Just returned frtom convention and am happy that my man Brave whoI supported from the beginning won.Christie won overwhelmingly and Big Bad Brad is back,so watch out HAI.This is a good time to be PLP as the winds of change ushering in a new PLP Govt. is here.Young people in the PLP do not want anyone but Perry to be the bridge to the future.It is time for those who opposed to return to the fold and lift up the arms of PC and the other two elected Leaders.To our detractors I say there is room for you so jump onboard.A fired up PLP is very willing to take on this inept,and spiteful Govt.

  69. BP, where are you? i have to give you some diapers and if you be nice i will let Fred Mitchell wipe you! BOL!!!!

    PC was returned as leader by a LANDSLIDE. It wasnt even close. Paul and BJ crying all over the place saying people vote who wasnt financial. Whats so jokey is they acting like it would have made a difference. They got beat BAD.

    For over a year me and like minded posters had to put up with the name calling by Bahamas Press for supporting PC. For over a year we called out Bahamas Press for his lies, inconsistencies, and character assignation on PC.

    For over a year Bahamas Press was dutifully doing the work of Fred Mitchell by destroying the character of PC and trying to create a bad perception of him.

    Today is a day of vindication. Today Bahamas Press and all of its efforts to poison the minds of the people have failed.

    BAHAMAS PRESS WAS WRONG, IS WRONG, HAVE BEEN WRONG, AND WILL ALWAYS BE WRONG

    Everything BAHAMAS PRESS predicted about PC’s fate has now been proven wrong. BP has no political acumen at all. He cant stick his finger in the wind and figure out where it is blowing because he is filled with spite and hate.

    BP, where was the massive youth vote that was suppose to crush PC?

    BP, where is the supreme court challenge that you said was coming?

    BP, what happend to your dark hosre BJ (cough) Fred Mitchell whow as suppose to defeat PC?

    BP, where are the masses you spoke of who was going to run Christie out of the party?

    BP, what happen to PC making history as being the first former PM and current leader of a party to be voted out of office in the Bahamas?

    BP, you are apart of a vocal MINORITY within the PLP. This was your Waterloo. You have lost so much credibility now because you put so much of it on the line as it relates to PC returning political future as leader.

    Many posters told you that your hatred for PC is blinding you. I just hope you realize this and make changes for the better.

    Now with Brad and Brave, its time to prepare for the general elections.

    …………………….HUBERT INRAHAM, WE COMIN!!!!!…………………..

  70. And how much did Christie win by????????????????? BP WE ALL OWE MR CHRISTIE AN UNCONDITIONAL APOLOGY…..
