Nassau, The Bahamas – Now an Independent MP, former PLP Kenyetta Gibson shot back with hard hitting words, at Perry Christie, after the opposition leader responded to his resignation from the PLP today.
Mr. Gibson louden the call for the PLP leader to step down from the leadership of the Progressive Liberal Party, a call echoed from other members within the Party’s machinery.
“Mr. Christie has once again revealed himself to be the cowardly bully that many in his Party know him to be. He cannot discipline the older boys and girls in the high school, so instead he walks over the primary school and beats up the younger children.”
“So as to make it clear I wish the record to reflect that Perry Christie is no longer fit to lead the Party of Pindling, Butler & Hanna. ” Mr Gibson said.

Response to Press Release of Perry Christie:
I was not surprised to read the press release issued by the soon to be former Leader of the PLP. It is a typical example of the kind of reptilian and treacherous behaviour of which I complained in my press release of the 9th January, 2008. Mr. Christie is a master of character assassination and an expert proponent of self aggrandizement. Indeed all would recall how on every available occasion during his term in office he took the opportunity to remind the country that he spoke “as Prime Minister of The Bahamas”…… as if he would have allowed us to forget it.”
This washed up, has been, egotist may as well claim that he created the world in seven (7) days, as it is clear from his release that he fancies himself on god of sorts.
I had hoped to depart in peace. I had deliberately withheld any further comment in order to foster an atmosphere of peace. But that is not Mr. Christie’s way. Mr. Christie knows full and well the background behind my re-nomination as he made many promises to me as regards the same. But it is now convenient for him to distort those events. Again no surprise!
Mr. Christie has once again revealed himself to be the cowardly bully that many in his Party know him to be. He cannot discipline the older boys and girls in the high school, so instead he walks over the primary school and beats up the younger children.
I understand that there may be some ambiguity as regards my said Press Release. So as to make it clear I wish the record to reflect that Perry Christie is no longer fit to lead the Party of Pindling, Butler & Hanna. He is arch-mediocrity, captain of all things small and petty, master of all things which are insignificant and void. He is best described as the man who is an expert at using shallow words dressed up in glittering phrases. His word and promises count for nothing!
Mr. Christie, let me offer you some advice that most of your Parliamentary colleagues speak of privately behind your back. They are the words which Cromwell uttered to an English Parliament, “You have sat too long here for any good that you have done, Sir! Depart I say, and let us have done with you! In the name of God, go!
