Nassau, Bahamas — The Hon. Desmond Bannister, the MP for Carmichael and Min of Youth, Sports and Culture is another of the bright spots in that otherwise dark Cabinet led by Hubert A Ingraham. As a Minister, he met a dysfunctional Ministry full of rejects in the Public Service. Most of the staff are incompetent and have been sent from other Ministries. 80 % of them should be retired in the “Public Interest”.
The Minister should be applauded for his work in bringing together some of these rejects to bring the FiFa Conference here. His PS, Archie Nairn does not have a clue and is lazy. The Undersecretary is even worse. We will not talk about all the so called ” Consultants” who are paid for nothing. Reports coming out of that Ministry confirmed that Arlene Nash Ferguson has not been seen in the building for the past two and a half years and our source wanted us to ask what is she being paid $ 60,000 dollars per annum to do?.
The Hon. Desmond Bannister has to work under these harsh conditions including exposure to Mold in the building, yet he does not complain. He is active in Carmichael and should be promoted if he chooses to stay on. The overall grade for this Minister is C-.
The Political Scientists have told us that with his general deportment and gentle nature, he can go far. He needs to stay above the fray and not get too political. Your grade has been hampered by the staff in your Ministry, you need to get rid of those ” Consultants you met there– Obama does not have as much Czars as Consultants in that Ministry. They do not show up to work and we should not have to pay them. You can bring your grade up to a solid B if you get rid of some of these people.
We will not waste ink on the Min of State for Culture and MP for Golden Isles, Charles Maynard, also known as the “Pillsbury Dough Boy”, he needs to go. He was graded an S, which is for Silly.
