Nassau, Bahamas — Desperate people do desperate things and the echo by some to support the sale of a profitable Bahamian ASSET [BTC] to Cable and Wireless, comes once again from some strange people.
The latest JACKASS to agree with the sale is Jamaican hotelier, Adam Stewart, the man who will take over his father’s empire Sandals Resorts, which operates some 20 hotels in the region.
Stewart could be heard telling members of the press, “The hotel industry deserves the best in communication,” as he promoted C&W to purchase 51% of BTC.
Now ‘yinner’ know something gats to be wrong with this damn picture. The Jamaicans telling us we need to get rid a BTC. The British telling us they want to buy BTC. The Haitians are working their way in government to SELL BTC; one in particular, is set to collect a 3% FINDER’S FEE! And the Bahamians are just sitting quiet while Hubert Ingraham and the FNM government commits another BACKSIDE RAPE on citizens.
Bahamas Press wants the pundits, the apologists, and the experts who say they know better than the rest of us, we are not ready to give up our ‘tings’!
We want them all to answer some serious questions in the meantime: Why are they in the Bahamas and not in their own crime-riddled nation? WHY? And why get up in our bed and attempt to undress our wife right in front of our eyes? BTC belongs to the Children of the Bahamas! It belongs to the generation unborn. It is our insurance for the future! It belongs to mama, who lost all her money in CLICO; that three leg one eye DEMON FROM TRINIDAD WHO RAN OFF WITH $74 MILLION OF BAHAMIANS MONEY!
Stewart should tell the people how in Jamaica where five private telephone companies exist, LIME (C&W) is the ‘wassest’ of them all. He should tell them how LIME charges every Jamaican with a telephone in their home $0.25USD per minute to call from one home to another. He should also inform us on how having telephone in the home in Jamaica is a thing of the past in that country. He should also tell the Bahamian people how when you call from a cell phone in his native country, the rate is almost double that.
Now get this, Sandals has a lovely product in the region and BP is always fascinated when we travel to its Whitehouse property in Southern Jamaica. It is nestled along the coastline of the country, which overlooks the balmy Caribbean Sea with white sandy beaches stretched for miles. The property is a place to die for, a piece of heaven on earth, and is one of Stewart’s finest.
When we were attempting to hunt down Kajani Taylor, the man who purchased two Bahamian voters cards for $1,000 from the Parliamentary Registrar’s office, we pleasured ourselves at that luxury property, so much so we forgot the mission at hand. Back then Cable and Wireless was the carrier for all Sandals Resorts in the country and we remember this trip distinctly because from the room we had to pay six [AMERICAN] dollars [$6.00 USD] for the first three minutes for a local call out of the resort. That is the rate! Now could you imagine that? Every time that pick up the telephone at Sandals it cost more than Keith’s Chicken-in-the-bag with a 20oz cold soda. Remember this now, Cable and Wireless is the carrier for all Sandals properties in Jamaica. [In Ocho Rios/Montego Bay/Negril and at Whitehouse]. We have visited them all! And if Cable and Wireless could not reduce telephone service in Jamaica how in the HELL they reduce costs here?
No matter what though, the next time we visit Jamaica we are staying at Sandals, but we just ain’t ‘ga’ make no calls. [Stewart that’s ya FREE AD].
Stewart should also tell the people of the Bahamas how back in Jamaica it is difficult for the skilled brain or for any Jamaican national for that matter to climb to the top of the ladder of the Sour LIME Corp. LIME has become a revolving door for Jamaican nationals in the executive offices and expatriates run the regional office.
He should details to the Bahamian public how much of Jamaica dollars have been repatriated back to the UK in dividends, management fees and corporate bonuses to expiate executives. And he should tell the Bahamian people whether or not he, his father or the Sandals chain has any other financial interest in LIME. MODERN DAY COLONIZATION TO SAY THE LEAST!
It is no surprise the Sandals boss has come out to support the foreign telephone company. Bahamians remember what Sandals did to pregnant women and workers at its Cable Beach property back in 2008. This same Sandals fired Bahamians like animals in the slaughterhouse and called some thieves publicly, with police never making its conclusions to the investigations public! WHAT A DAMN SHAME!
What was done at Sandals is the same thing C&W is plotting to do at BTC; FIRE BAHAMIANS! And if we as a people stand by and let this happen in our country, then we at BP might as well fold up our tent and head to Canada.
Stewart should have NOTHING TO SAY ON THIS! This is the Bahamian people’s business! Go fix Jamaica and get the hell out of our damn bedroom!
