Forget the fact that there is a snitch in the PLP, which Perry Christie would not fire. Forget the fact that Perry Christie and Hubert Ingraham are working together to undermine their party supporters. Forget the fact that Christie refuses to bring cohesion and restructuring to the PLP, which will lead the organization to a defeat at the polls in 2012. Forget the fact that Perry Christie has yet to name his possible successor IF his health fails and he can not continue as leader. And, forget the fact that the PLP today has NO party apparatus (Public Relations/radio station/Newspaper/ or MONEY) in order to assist the party in its re-election bid. By the next general elections the organization will be facing another serious problem, Perry ‘John McCain’ Christie will be the oldest man in the history of the country to run for the high office of Prime Minister. To put it plainly, that is what would be in the minds of the voters here in The Bahamas.
But against this backdrop, Bahamas Press today unveils a new shocking revelation about the mistrust of Perry Christie. A close relative of the Thompson clan revealed to Bahamas Press that Christie was the mastermind behind the standoff between the former Attorney General Allyson Maynard-Gibson and Elizabeth Thompson her Registrar General.
The prominent member of the Thompson clan told Bahamas Press the battle between Thompson and Gibson should not have went that far. Christie could have stopped the situation. However the family member said, “Christie advised us, to advise Liz [Elizabeth] not to move out of her office despite the pressure coming from the Attorney General. And so acting on those words of Christie, the situation ballooned out of proportion.”
Allyson Gibson told Parliament on the 13th June 2005, why Thompson was terminated.
She said: “She called me over and repeatedly wanting to get the job of Registrar General, that had been advertised. I gave her a chance in spite of her poor record of four jobs in four years. Rather than judging a book by its cover, I decided to give her another chance in large measure because of my respect for her mother…
“Numerous complaints were made that she completely ignored phone calls of important clients of the Registry. When this was raised with her she responded that she did not have time for that. She found time to conduct marriages, however, sometimes charging and pocketing up to $600 for each even though she had been given a directive to stop taking this work from other marriage officers.”
Politicos following the incident noted how Perry Christie at the time said NOT A WORD. A trait that has given him the name, “DO NOTHING PRIME MINISTER” and resulted in his firing on May 2nd, 2007 by the people of this country. But who believed Perry Christie did nothing was dreaming, the family member continued, “Christie told us Allyson had no authority to fire Liz and that if it came down to her getting fired, she would receive a handsome package.”
Christie then went out of his way, to find $300,000 dollars of TAXPAYERS money, to compensate Thompson.
“He undermined his own minister [Allyson Gibson] and allowed a former public servant to attack his Cabinet colleague. This is the Christie PLPs are dealing with! A BACKSTABBER WHO ACTS LIKE HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON,” the family member told Bahamas Press.
“Everywhere Thompson goes there is TROUBLE,” said a former PLP colleague of Thompson. “She was in big bust up with former Attorney General, Allyson Gibson. She was former PLP branch secretary for Holy Cross under Sidney Stubbs – Mr. Korean boat scandal. The key word is WAS. WAS! WAS! WAS!. She always causes trouble then bails out.
“She joined the FNM because she could not get her way with the PLP and people took Allyson’s side,” the former PLP colleague continued. We heard she tried to run in the last election in Pinewood because she wanted to have a boxing match with Allyson who she seems to be obsessed with.
“She practically muscled her way in the FNM and has now earned the FNM way of life which is being a big time cut throat. She is now vice chairperson in the Holy Cross Constituency under Carl Bethel. This girl is an opportunist but she doesnt last anywhere as she cannot get along with anyone. Right now she is the president of the FNM Women’s Association and the members want her OUT,” the PLP colleague concluded.
Since the FNM won the election last year, Thompson has found her way back AGAIN into the public purse, this time as the Legal Counsel for BTC. It is amazing to see how persons can get away with ROBBING the people of the Bahamas time and time again! Bahamas Press braces for the chaos that will come out of BTC, now that MISS CHAOS HERSELF is working at the company.
