Nassau, Bahamas — Bahamas Press is appalled to see how low and desperate Hubert Ingraham, Cassius Stuart and political newcomer Andre Rollins have all become. All are now bordering on the plain of the delusional as Leo Ryan Pinder races to the home stretch with his newfound love, the constituency of Elizabeth.
We told you the day we know an election would be called, that Hubert Ingraham and his other desperate puns of planted independents [Stuart and Rollins] would all get a VICIOUS cut–you–know–what from the people of Lizzy.
Last week after BP discovered some 700 voters could not be found Stuart ran to one of them WUTLESS DUTTY papers on behalf of Hubert and said they were “PLP operatives” who cannot be found and that the Party paid people to register in the constituency. Had Stuart possessed the information we had he would know an apartment in polling division #10 of Lizzy registered some 10 persons to the same unit in November of 2009. He would remember Christie’s PLP had no intentions to run a candidate following Malcolm Adderley’s resignation.
Bp had warned Stuart when he made his comments to provide us with the list. He never did. In fact he refused to tell us where and or who were these operatives of the PLP. Clearly the BDM leader is now working for Hubert Ingraham and cannot be trusted by the Bahamian people for TELLING LIES! His party has no structure, no plan, no followers, and no council and is all but a shell standing in the wind making mischief getting in the way. We now publicly ask him to provide the same he gave to the WUTLESS DUTTY PAPER of face a vicious cut–you–know–what from this blog.
Political newcomer Andre Rollins is no different. He to has this strong affection for ‘Toilet Paper’. Yesterday he ran to the Rag Sheet asking them to attack the man running off with Lizzy. Calling our endorsed candidate everything but a child of God. When will Rollins and Stuart accept the people of the Bahamas wants nothing to do anymore with Hubert; their newfound papa friend? When will the NDP leadership accept Bahamians seek not to join a Party defending Ingraham and at the same time join an organization, which has no structure, no plan, few followers, no council and more importantly NO LEADER! Who will follow that?
When we see Stuart and Rollins these days we see Hubert Ingraham. We see people who have become desperate playing the dirty political at all cost. We see them being funded by FNM goons to stir and create mischief in the political process. They are all playing the game of the same old politics. They are all wearing that dirty political dress while mounting a message of CHANGE. Right thinking Bahamians rejects this.
Since the campaign in Lizzy has began Leo Ryan Pinder has stayed above the fray and has stayed on message. He has made it his mantra to stay away from character assassination and mudslinging. And now Ingraham attacks a DECENT white Bahamian and is using the race card. We would also say Ryan’s more serious opponent, Duane Sands, has also stayed away from any kind of NASTY messaging. Sands has also stayed above personal attacks and for that BP commends him.
We cannot say the same for his leader who has gone MAD like a gorilla from the West Coast. Hubert Ingraham since the campaign has began attacked Malcolm Adderley, Perry Christie, Bradley Roberts, Branville McCartney his own cabinet minister Dr. Hubert Minnis, Carl Bethel and recently members of the UBP by extension Brent Symonette. Our mouth fell open and we couldn’t believe our eyes when we heard and saw Ingraham play the race card by saying that PLP selected a white Bahamian. Ingraham called Bradley Roberts and Marvin Pinder UBPs and lambasted the PLP for choosing his decent son, Ryan to run in Elizabeth. WE ARE STILL IN SHOCK! Surely Ingraham doesn’t have a problem with the UBP for when he had the opportunity to select a young man, who he had earlier selected leader of the FNM, to become deputy Prime Minister he selected the son of the former UBP party leader to become deputy leader of his party. Now he is trying to convince and frighten the GOOD PEOPLE of ELIZABETH saying they should not vote for a white Bahamian? PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE!
Ingraham made his comments last evening while addressing a handful of supporters in Lizzy. In his nasty hoggish style he suggested a vote for the PLP in the Elizabeth is a vote for the UBP! Well WOW! Serious FNMs must be taken by the comment as everyone knows the chief‘s bagman for the FNM is Sir Jeffery Johnstone the last chairman of the UBP!
Marvin Pinder is a member of the PLP of longstanding. He was a former Cabinet Minister in the Pindling government. He served with Ingraham as a colleague in the Pindling administration. He suffered with the PLP for his standing with the poor, the weak and the disenfranchised during the long years of struggle in our country. Marvin Pinder was castigated for his political associations with the PLP. Lost employment, suffered in business and was removed from the social circles of the upper floors of acceptance as he supported the PLP. But Ingraham is here once again attempting to rewrite history, just as he tried to suggests that Elizabeth was named after his grammy. Please Mr. Ingraham you must come tougher than that. STOP TELLING LIES! The electorate is not as DUMB or as GREEDY as you think they are.
Ingraham must be bordering on the delusional as he further admonished to Lizzy residents that Dr. Sands will be as good as and “outdo his colleague in the west Dr. Hubert Minnis”. What a slap at hardworking Dr. Minnis. Could Ingraham be in his right mind? Or could it be the lost of his spiritual leader, which has taken him off his game. It is possible Ingraham needs his black hat for this one but we are certain it wouldn’t help him one bit.
One thing is certain though with Cassius Stuart and Andre Rollins at his side after this CUT–YOU–KNOW–WHAT in Lizzy they all can solidify their alliances and form another new Party.
In his address to the Nation on Sunday March 10th, 2002 Hubert Ingraham said:
I shall not seek the Office of Prime Minister. This is in keeping with the position I communicated to the Bahamian people in 1992. My views was than, as it is now, that two terms would provide me the time I needed to accomplish the goals enunciated in Manifesto ’92 and Manifesto II.
