Nassau, Bahamas: Today in Parliament as Hubert Ingraham was trying to fix fallout of the local government elections, proved be nothing more then a ‘toothless lion’. Frank Smith stood on the floor of the House and declared that the drink ‘MONA VIE’ is a miracle drink! He declared it miraculously reduced from 45% the lawful duty, to 10%. Amazingly, Hubert Ingraham who said just months before said that Zhivargo Laing his minister of state in the finance department ‘did nothing wrong,’ quickly jumped to his feet and said the following. “If you can show me evidence that it has been reduced to 10% then someone in the ministry of finance will go home this afternoon. Somebody will go home this afternoon…” Like we said Hubert Ingraham is nothing but a ‘toothless lion’, because his junior minister who was sitting right behind him [Zharvigo Laing] eyes began blinking like a Christmas tree. A word to Mr. Ingraham, if you did not fire anyone when the law was broken [by Laing] last year, who you think would believe you now that you would fire him today? The ‘toothless lion’ was only puffin hot air AGAIN!
