Bahamas Press announced on July 30th that a mass disconnection exercise by BEC was being carried out on thousands of homeowners. When we revealed that BREAKING STORY some scoffed our revelations, concluding that we were yet again grasping for straws.
Bahamas Press described Hubert Ingraham’s decision to cut off suppliers in the capital in this way, “…. Hubert Ingraham, the prime minister, has always had a penchant for bending over backwards for persons of a pale hue, and never at his personal expense, but at the expense of those who could least afford it—the poor black Bahamian.”
Now after cutting off thousands of single mothers and jobless Bahamians already feeling the pinch of that category five named hurricane Ingraham, the 30 year political destruct (Ingraham) was quoted in the ‘WUTLESS DAILIES’ saying the following as he descended on Inagua. “Far too many Bahamians have been cut off supply [BEC] and are hurting.”
Now imagine that, the man who cut the people light off -now crying crocodile tears – saying people hurting?
Well since our story published online, a petition has surfaced agitating that, “changes must be made to our electricity fuel surcharge….If the Govt. gave BEC a tax break, what happened to it? BEC stated they have to use the oil in their supply before the price goes down….why is the fuel charge still going up?” (The petition website can be found at http://www.petitiononline.com/bec1234/).
Bahamas Press believes that the petitioners are genuine in their call however, they have lost the focus on attacking the real perpetrators of the high fuel surcharge dilemma. FRED GOTLIEB DECIDES WHO PAYS WHAT CHARGE AT BEC AND HUBERT INGRAHAM GAVE THE APPROVAL to THE NATIONAL SUTDOWN WHILST HE OVERSAW SINGLE MOTHERS BEING PUT IN DARKNESS! ADDED TO ALL THIS HERE AGAIN IS SNEAKY EARL DEVEAUX, THE MAN WHO STOPPED AND TERMINATED ALL THOSE CONTRACTUAL WORKS, NOW THE MINISTER FOR BEC! So if there be any removal, it should begin with removing Hubert Ingraham, with his 30 years of political disaster here in The Bahamas. He and his ‘cripple brother’ have been in power for far too long now, and its time for the country to say goodbye to them both! WE NEED CHANGE!
Just as we stated back in our July 30th release when this massacre against the poor began, we make no apologies for what may sound like a prejudicial approach to how Hubert Ingraham deals with Bahamians. It cannot be coincidence that mostly, if not all, black and poor Bahamians are being annihilated on all fronts by the policies set forth by Hubert Ingraham.
Bahamas Press demands that the prime minister reverse this decision and turn those poor black Bahamians lights back on, based on what they can afford to pay.
When Bradley Robert headed BEC, electrical bills were reduced by 50% and the entire Bahamian population felt the ease at the food store and in the consumer markets. However just after May 2nd 2007, bread moved from $2 TO $4 AND SO DID EVERYTHING ELSE INCLUDING THE FUEL SURCHARGE AT BEC. Some consumers bills have moved up by 300% and all Hubert Ingraham could say is simply this, “Far too many people are hurting.” Yeah, thanks Ingraham!
