Every Wednesday is opposition day in the House of Commons at West Minister in the United Kingdom. It is a fiery time where members of Parliament on all three sides of the House present questions to the Prime Minister. This is a maturity the Bahamas has yet to reach. When will a Kendal Wright have the chance to ask the Prime Minister here in this country, “When will the residents of Clifton get their ????” We are not there just yet.

However, whilst the Bahamas Parliament is not there yet, Bahamas Press is, as we are about to make this website the question centre for the Cabinet of The Bahamas. We begin today by asking some questions to the Prime Minister Ingraham on matters relative to the state of affairs here in this country and their that affects to our people. Here we go.

To the Prime Minister Rt. Hubert Alexander Ingraham:

#1 – Can Rt. Hon. Prime Minister tell us the people, who accompanied him on his trip to New York on last week to the United Nations and  what was the total cost of the trip to the Bahamian taxpayers?

#2 – Can the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister tell us the people, what is the dollar figure committed by the Bahamian government to the Haitian government for reliefs efforts after hurricanes passages through that island nation? What is the cost to Taxpayers?

#3 – Can the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister tell us the people, noting the fact that his government taunts a record of TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY to the Taxpayers of this country, will your government present to Parliament a Freedom of Information Act – already in drafted – which is intended to expose to the public, all contractual agreements entered into by government with private contractors, and if not why and if so when?

These will be a first of many questions Bahamas Press will ask the current administration. And sometime some will also be poised to the Opposition. Some questions going unanswered can resurface and perhaps end up in many public discussions if not answered.

  1. For real, Kim. I really feel sorry for those folks who getting laid off. That is certainly a lot of stress to deal with.

    BP, I will watch out for old Box Fish Head picking his fingers.

  2. People are getting lay-off left, right and center. We only focusing on the hotel workers, all around people feeling it and I don’t want to say this, but I feel plenty more will try to kill themselves. Not everybody could handle stress. Like me, I come on here to see what jokes WOW! , Drama and the others talking, that’s how I deal with mines.

  3. Unconfirmed reports COMING TO BAHAMAS PRESS suggests that some 40 workers at a hotel in the West are being prepared for termination.

    News coming to Bahamas Press has also confirms that a resident attempted to commit suicide as the individual tried to jump off the New Paradise Island Bridge around Saturday afternoon.

    On another note, has anyone seen how Hubert Ingraham nervously picks his fingers when he is talking? Someone must say, something is wrong with him when they see that….THE HOUSE ON TV CHANNEL 40.

    PS: But for me debate is now on in the House of Commons and so I get a higher level of debate there.

  4. Things could get uglier, Kim….lol….and WOW, you too wicked, man. I remember the picture like it was yesterday. When I showed it to my mother, she said, “Geez he ugly eh? You could see da Obeah dropping off him.”…..lol….I almost laughed my head off. Lets just say the brother aint too photogenic. I guess thats why he has that BIS picture taker foot in foot behind him as he travels. Maybe she trying to get just the right shot…..lol……

  5. Y’all remember that picture of him in the robe when he went to London and was bestowed with an honorary degree? He almost looked frightened as if he was being held at gunpoint. lol

  6. Kim, WOW is right. Aint nothing BP can do about that pic and truthfully its one of the best.

  7. WOW! that’s the best BP could do aye? I sound like I want them to do a miracle. I guess if that how the man looks that how he looks, aint nothing BP could do about that (lol).

  8. Kim, that’s one of his better pictures. BP only can do so much, anything else will take divine intervention.

  9. I really do not know why BP keeps using this picture with the Prime Minister. This is really an ugly picture with him. What’s makes the matter worse you already upset with all the crap his government is doing and every time you look at this picture, it makes you more upset. BP please try to find another picture, this picture is very disturbing.

  10. WOW! Everything you mention here has already been set in motion. Unemployment rate is up, the economy is doing poorly, crime is on the increase, and everything else is already frig up. This is what you get when you put people in the drivers seat, that can’t drive and for me the time is just too long before we can make any changes. By the time the next election roll around we might not have a country.

  11. Ain’t long now till we frig the country up

    Ain’t long now till we wreck the economy

    Ain’t long now till crime is out of control

    Ain’t long now till we embarrass you again
