christie-at-conventionPRESS STATEMENT BY  THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION &
LEADER OF THE PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL PARTY THE RT. HON. PERRY G. CHRISTIE PC, MP  NOVEMBER 26, 2009

I have today informed the Honourable Alvin Smith, the Speaker of the House of Assembly that I have appointed the Honourable Member for West End & Bimini Mr. Obie Wichcombe as the new leader of opposition business in the Honourable House of Assembly in place of the Honourable Member for Bain & Grant’s Town Dr. Bernard Nottage who resigned the said post in October of this year.

I again, publicly thank the Dr. Nottage for having performed his duties as Leader of Opposition Business in the House of Assembly so ably and diligently.

Now that the Mr. Wilchcombe has been appointed, I have every confidence that the high standard set by his predecessor will continue to be met as the Opposition goes about its important work in the House of Assembly.obie

My Party is presently undertaking a series of far-reaching administrative and operational changes involving the assignment of additional responsibilities, especially to our new Deputy Leader, the Honourable Member for Cat Island Mr. Philip ‘Brave’ Davis who has already been deputized by me to assume a key responsibility for the co-ordination of my Party’s preparations for the next General Elections.

    Whether its Brave vs Hubert- I would have to sit down and watch both of them during the election fever to cast a vote 50/50″.

    You are confused,so why should the PLP change their Leader because you like others fear his return to power?Please rethink your position as you appear wishy washy.

    YES YES YES…….. But Naomi…. Im no FNM…. and Im no PLP… if one party have a leader i see is worthy of my vote im going to vote for them if they are in UBP… BDM… FNM or PLP. Perry Christie was the man for the job in 2002 point BLANK!…. He had his turn and made me turn to Hubert Alexanda Ingraham in 07…. Whether is Perry vs Hubert… Ill rather Hubert…. Whether its Brave vs Hubert- I would have to sit down and watch both of them during the election fever to cast a vote 50/50.

    AND Im sure yal both know that Mr. Brave Davis was suppose to run for LEADER of the PLP and that made Perry Christie very VERY NERVOUS. So he tried to “sweetin” Mr Davis and Mr. Wilcombe SECRETLY. When he know for sure that he wouldve prefer Obie for deputy because he would never challenge him AGAIN and because he have plenty “DIRT” on him….. Im sure it was a strategic move Brave did to not run for leader…. Hes only testing the waters before he go all the way!

    Brave DAVIS is a very very good lawyer and trust me…. he has something in store for Mr. Christie VERY SOON…. I can see Mr. Brave Davis as LEADER OF THE PLP very very soon and trust me CHristie is very nervous and watching his back because of that.

  4. @FORRESTER
    At least the PLP’s leader don’t drop bomshells on appointees or dictates who he and ONLY he, wants for a post! Our party is democratic (FNM’s can’t stand to hear or believe that), therefore they can use their deep bench willingly and freely! Can the other party say the same – HELL NO !!! But, you know some people LOVE oppression and dictatorship !! Now, THAT, is not delusional!

  5. @naomi
    YOU UNDERSTAND???????….. And the sad part about it is Perry Christie is going to hurt THE PLP chances…. Do you really think there are thousands of people like Russell Johnson who honestly feel Perry Christie was flawless?…… The PLP would have an advantage if Brave Davis is leader TRUST ME ON THAT!

    But the thing is…. Russell Johnson and co. mussy forgot about months before the TROVOLTA case there were plenty PLENTY PLP supporters who felt that Mr. Christie is destroying the plp and they were going to ELECT SOMEONE on the CHANGE TEAM. But since the Trovolta case, it destroyed Mr. Obie chances…. and notice Glennis and Obie who were big contributors to the CHANGE/GET CHRISTIE OUT CAMPAIGN all started to work with Mr. Christie after the Trovolta scandal because their faiths looked very bad.

  6. @naomi
    IGNORE HIM IGNORE HIM…. Let him and his close minded self think that PERRY Christie is so PERFECT….. He’s very simple and always think Mr. christie is always right and DELUSIONAL.

  7. BY THE WAY, NAOMI, FOR THE RECORD, IF OUR LEADER (MR CHRISTIE OF COURSE)HAD ASKED ME TO RECOMMEND WHO HE SHOULD APPOINT IN THE POSITION THAT DR. NOTTAGE RESIGNED FROM, I WOULD HAVE ADVISED HIM TO RE-APPOINT DR NOTTAGE. DR NOTTAGE WAS AWESOME BUT OBIE WILL DO WELL AS WELL; WHAT CAN I SAY? THE PLP, UNLIKE THE FNM, HAS A DEEP BENCH OF QUALIFIED PERSONS TO CHOSE FROM.

  8. WE ALL HAVE OUR OPINIONS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT, NOTWITHSTANDING PERRY CHRISTIE’S SHORTCOMINGS IN OUR DIFFERING VIEWS, HIS FIVE-YEAR TENURE WAS MORE PRODUCTIVE; SHOWED MORE POSITIVE GROWTH AND STABILITY-YEAR FOR YEAR-THAN INGRAHAM’S ALMOST 13 YEARS IN OFFICE; THIS FACT CANNOT BE DISPUTED, FACTUALLY.

    Being quick to rush to judgment can be just as bad as too slow, so you are right on that. However, I will be here all day if I start giving you examples of Chrisite’s weakness and inability to make decisions. I am looking forward to Brave’s transition to Leader, hopefully it will be soon and definitely before another general election.

  10. @Naomi
    I agree with Forrester. I don’t know what all the HALLABOLOO is all about? What you all call weak, in PC is what is known as “thoughtfulness and visionary”! We are too used to fast, biggiety actions! Now we are reapeating the results! How can you be decisive in “firing, early retiring” and now providing “temp” jobs and bringing back people on contracts! Sounds confusing to me! Barve is deputy, and when the time comes, I am sure he will have a smooth transition into the leadership postion! PC may be ” slow” to most of you, but at least I feel confident – he has thought about …before he follows his plan!

  11. @Forrester J Carroll J.P
    You are right in all aspects Mr. Carroll, but why not give it back to BJ or someone young like Frank Smith? Obie is scandal ridden, the PLP really do not want to clean up their image, real or unreal, perception is 99% in politics!

  12. THE OPPOSITION LEADER IN THE HOUSE, AS WELL AS THE GOVERNMENT LEADER, SETS THE AGENDA FOR THE OPPOSITION AND THE GOVERNMENT, RESPECTIVELY. IT’S NOT A MAJOR BIG DEAL AND OBIE IS AS QUALIFIED TO DO THE JOB AS ANY ONE ELSE. I DON’T KNOW WHAT ALL THE HALLABOLOO IS ABOUT.

  13. @naomi
    Whenever Christie retires willingly the party will vote on who its Leader will be going forward.Right now the focus must be the FNM as we cannot take too much more of them and their frequent missteps.

  14. All of this nonsense about Brave being ready to stab Christie is ludricous.Whatever Christie does he is damned according to the comments posted but the latter has complete trust in Davis so this throws all arguments out of the window.In case any of you missed the other part of Christies strategy,Brave has now been put in charge of getting the PLP ready for General Elections.If you saw how he outmanoeuvred all his competition then you know its over come 2012.Christie can trust Davis who has been his partner for over 30 yrs.CDR is one of the most important and capable teams that the PLP has had since PHM (Pindling,Hanna and Maynard).One of the better persons who should have been given a QC Davis can handle himself so please listen to him when he speaks and stop listening for flippant phrases.I repeat Christie trusts Davis and Obie is one who can handle himself plus he also has support in the PLP and shows his mettle by winning the only seat for the PLP in GB.The PLP shall not be moved by naysayers but will continue to show its resolve from here on in.Party elections are over and CDR is in control.

    Its very funny that you say that Mr. Christie gives second chances whereas his second chances decisions during 2002 to 2007 has PAINTED him as a weak leader. Also, I would NOT trust Mr. Obie he’s very sly and could easily back stab Mr Christie A-G-A-I-N! Most people dont even have the slightest idea that Fred Mitchel, Obie Wilcombe. Alfred Sears and G. Hanna Martin were all apart of this team called THE CHANGE TEAM. This team was planned to DESTROY PERRY CHRISTIE for his same “second chances” idea which made The PLP loose in 2007; however due to The John Trovolta scandal…. It destroyed Mr. Obie’s chances for running as LEADER as expected.

    Yes that is true!! Obie cried when he heard that the “Change Team ” except for Glenys was not going to back him anymore. Anyway, all I can say is Brave better get his young campaign team back together, this country needs change.

  16. @Bahamasyouth
    Bahamasyouth I with you, you hit the nail on the head. Christie is afraid of Brave, he all about laughing at him and saying he don’t know how to speak, but Brave is a serious man. In fact he has been carrying lazy Perry for a long time and this is what he does to him. He trying to appease Obie after Obie says he so weak and indecisive but hopefully people will have enough sense to get rid of Perry and Obie before the next election.

  17. Russell Johnson :
    Christie is someone who gives second chances so the opcoming PLP leaders need not fear.Its a good choice as Obie despite losing the deputy Leader race is still a viable persopn to contest for L:eader whenever the time arises.

    But Trust my words when I say Mr. Christie is only putting in place Mr. Obie for this post because he PREFERRED MR OBIE FOR DEPUTY LEADER instead of Brave Davis. Perry Christie knows that OBIE chances look very very slim to nothing to EVER Challenge him for leader due to Mr. Obie’s scandals. Now back to Mr. Davis….. Perry Christie fears Mr. Davis because he know for a fact that if he even TRIP as leader… BRAVE DAVIS will be there to throw him down and take his SPOT. Brave Davis has the MONEY and THE RESPECT to be LEADER OF THE PLP and PC knows that and is very very afraid. Therefore hes going to try train Mr. OBIE for when MR. DAVIS SHOW HIM WHO IS REALLY IN CHARGE……… TIME WILL TELL!

  18. There is no need for all of this halabpp as the opposition House Leader just sets the agenda woth the Govt leader presently Tommy so that each side knows what the agenda is for that days setting.To have placed BJ in that position again was suicidal as the cry would have been weak and scared Leader.Obie now gets the opportunity to show that he is ready for leadership.Christie is someone who gives second chances so the opcoming PLP leaders need not fear.Its a good choice as Obie despite losing the deputy Leader race is still a viable persopn to contest for L:eader whenever the time arises.

  19. im upset of perry`s decision….too weak man! he might as well had put bj back there cause obie cant throw blows on the first national mess….obie musse have dirt on perry….

  20. Da Snitch can never fill BJ’s shoes. The PLP will never get rid of their scandal ridden reputation, Obie will all the baggage and more to come now Leader of Opposition Business. They just put another nail in their coffin!!
