Perry Christie buttons his suit and he readies for another show in the House of Assembly. Christie is being congratulated by Tommy Turnquest, B.J. Nottage and Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham during a recess.
Bahamas Press disclaimer: To our faithful readers what you are about to read is the result and consequence of PLP WEBMASTERâ€™S NASTY BEHAVIOUR TODAY.
Nassau, Bahamas: Chatter in the House of Assembly concluded in a statement by the Rt. Hon. Hubert Ingraham suggesting that he and his government will knight Perry Christie – the shuffler, the man described as a failure by Hubert Ingraham.
Mr. LATE AGAIN! The WUTLESS fraudster, who led the Progressive Liberal Party to an untimely death at the polls on May 2nd, 2007, is being considered for knighthood. And since the party has failed to quickly remove Christie from the reins of power, the future of the PLP ever regaining power in this country is bleak. A PERRY CHRISTIE CANDIDATE CANNOT EVER DEFEAT A HUBERT INGRAHAM. A fact both PLPs and FNMs agree on. The statement by Ingraham was thrown across the floor of the House of Assembly at last week Wednesdayâ€™s sitting.
Ingraham was heard saying, â€œWe ga knight him [Christie]â€ as former minister of tourism Obie Wilchombe quickly responded and said, â€œYeah and when we get back in power we ga knight you to!â€
These statements are nothing new in the Parliament, from time to time both Christie and Ingraham always share these short love-sessions whilst in the HOUSE. Even in Great Briton today the Labour leader Gordon Brown is arguing to give former Conservative Party leader Margaret Thatcher a state funeral whenever she leaves Godâ€™s green earth. And here the Conservative Party Leader has welcomed that kind gesture.
The question however is not whether Perry will receive his knighthood now or when he leaves the leadership of the PLP, but why? Why does Hubert Ingraham want to knight Christie, particularly when so many loyal and committed FNMs are still waiting to be knighted? Christie was so â€˜LATE AGAINâ€™ that, one year whilst in office, his list of PLPs to be knighted was late for the Queenâ€™s approval. So much for a tired leader now in need of plenty rest! And so the people of The Bahamas have sent him to his political wilderness and still the PLP cannot find the nerve to rid itself of the baggage Christie has become for their party.
Yes that is the question, why? Why â€“ if he really means what he said â€“ would Hubert want to knight the leader of the opposition and not some persons in the court of the FNM? Or is it because the Prime Minister sees Christie as a more faithful servant doing what he is asked to do? Bahamas Press believes the latter. And the last 2008/09 Budget debate proves this point.
In an exclusive with the WUTLESS TRIBUNE, Hubert Ingraham said he was shocked that he did not hear the Opposition raise concerns about the increased taxes and tariffs in his 2008/9 Budget. Now imagine this man – who decided to increase the cost of living with HIGH TAXES on the Bahamian people – saying that he is surprised that the Opposition did not warn the people that he had already cocked his gun? Of course Christie could not say anything, for both Christie and the WUTLESS media, all have been bought LOCK, STOCK AND BARREL, deep in the pockets HUBERT ALEXANDER INGRAHAM!
None will challenge Hubert â€˜the toothless lionâ€™ Ingraham. And how dear the â€˜pussy catâ€™ come and pee on that â€˜tootless lionâ€™? It was Hubert who allowed legislation to be passed on the floor of the House allowing Christieâ€™s Prime Ministerâ€™s pension. Christie did not earn a pension like Pindling, but Hubert gave Christie a pension.
Yes Hubert will knight Christie because Christie continues to keep the PLP fractured, and disjointed after their defeat at the polls on May 2nd, 2007. With some branches closed and dying.
Yes Hubert will knight Christie because Christie more than anyone in the PLP continues to lose the youthful arm of the party. He lost Rigby, he lost Gibson, and the youth branch has degenerated to oblivion.
Yes Hubert will knight Christie because he cannot fire Malcolm Adderley, as the MP for Elizabeth is on the Ingraham government payroll and answers to the minister of finance. Christie has allowed this to happen whilst PLPs look on scrapping for votes in Parliament. Who in this country believes a sitting member of Hubert Ingrahamâ€™s FNM will vote with the PLP on a bill?
Yes Hubert will knight Christie, seeing that Christie has allowed the PLP to degenerate into an OLDER clan of marching ELITEST! â€˜OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE MASSESâ€™!
Yes Hubert Ingraham will knight Christie, because he would continue to hold off PLP party radicals from attacking FNMs. More importantly, he has held off PLPs from attacking Hubert Ingraham in any arena, whether in or outside the Parliament.
So yes Hubert will knight Christie, and many PLPs will follow Christie to that ceremony saying, how deserving Christie is for what Hubert â€˜the toothless lionâ€™ Ingraham has done.
However in saying all this, PLPs will be BLIND to the reality of the colossal damages Christie has done to the PLP, all in the furtherance of Hubert Ingrahamâ€™s.
