Nassau, Bahamas — When you read the Nassau Guardian today you must wonder what is happening here. Today the Nassau Guardian is one again thrashing out the old dead argument of: Who is the better man, Christie or Ingraham.
The cables from Wiki Leaks is said to be an exclusive of the paper, but if they can indeed point to us where on Wiki they are found, we would accept them as valid.
The first story deals with conversations with Ingraham and an Embassy employee, Brian Bachman. The meeting was in Papa’s law firm on West Bat Street in the Cable Beach area. During the said meeting we read comments and discussions along the lines the usual FNM spin and diatribe. Christie dis and dat, who will be the next leader of the FNM and what Ingraham will do in the future.
What we found amazing was that there was little conversation about the suffering sorry state Papa left the Bahamian people in back in 2002. Absolutely nothing was discussed left by the deposed FNM Regime of 2002. Nothing concrete was written about the future of the Bahamian economy or what were the plans to dig the country out of the financial mess left by the FNM REGIME. Just the same attack on Christie and the PLP!
Bahamas Press wonders if Ingraham’s communications, if indeed they are true, with the Americans was held because of his said status as registered agent #1622? The conversation again displays acts of treason a crime punishable by law! We wonder what secrets did the PM give away as the former head of state to a foreign power. We find these cables interesting.
We note the message in all this however to paint the PLP as weak and the FNM as strong. Nothing more is achieved here. Could you imagine such a debate being crafted at the centre of American politics when Banks are failing and thousands upon thousands of American families are loosing their homes and jobs? Could you imaging that kind of jackass debate being crafted while mama in small town American cannot buy jackmackerel and grits to eat? We Cry DAMN SHAME ON THE GUARDIAN, who delivers a new low to the Bahamian people!
Not one story on the front page of today’s newspaper writes about how the Americans had to haul ASS off Bay Street and run for their lives following an armed robbery at John Bull Sunday morning. Not once in those conversations with the PM was the security of Americans visiting the Bahamas discussed. NOT ONCE!
There is not one drop of ink revealed by the papers reported how Americans on Bay Street and Tourist from all over the world were left scrambling in panic for their lives yesterday. Nothing mentioned how no police could be found or anything on the front page said about the wanted suspects, not even a DAMN sketch! They hid that report so far back in the pages and BP is still looking for the story.
Crime and Unemployment should be the concerns of the Americans. It should be the concern of Ingraham. It should be the concern of Christie and every American and Bahamian visiting this 21 X 7. WE ARE IN TROUBLE!
‘Who is the better man’ we believe is just another distracted argument, an old contest, and another boogieman debate. It has no place in our papers when CRIME AND UNEMPLOYMENT is killing the Nation.
