The FIGHT is on!!! Hubert Ingraham, Alvin Smith and Glenys Hanna-Martin.
Nassau, Bahamas — Well, today was another day in Nassau and once again, the man with a pacemaker in her heart could not speak to his 2009/10 Budget. It was a second day of climatic thundering over the Parliament, and the representative of Englerston, Glenys Hanna-Martin, could not speak for her people. The MP was stopped from entering the House. The Gestapo police formed a human chained at the door, disallowing the MP from entering. And today in a redo of yesterday’s fumble, the Speaker eventually suspended Hanna-Martin officially for two days.
Bahamas Press believes that three things should be seen here. One, the Speaker disallowed the MP from speaking, whilst he allowed members of the government to do so. Two, not one of the over 20 WUTLESS media outlets in this country have yet identified the fact that SPEAKER ALVIN SMITH SUSPENDED HANNA-MARTIN, without a vote of the motion taking place yesterday! A Speaker cannot move on such a motion without a vote being taken on the floor of the House! It is his job to rule on such matters after a vote! (THE HEIGHT OF IGNORANCE FROM THE SPEAKER!!!). Thirdly, we believe Hanna-Martin and the PLP has made their point and therefore the time has come for them to return to civil order. They’ve made their point and now it’s time to get back to the people’s business.
BP warns the PLP, whilst we applaud their actions yesterday and today, the organization must know that this action can backfire! If the budget cannot pass by July 1st, NOT A GOVERNMENT BILL WILL BE PAID, INCLUDING SOME SALARIES. Ingraham [the man with the pacemaker] will certainly love this! And he will love this because the question will be asked, WHY ARE Government BILLS NOT PAID? AND THE ANSWER WILL BE, BLAME DA PLP!
We ask members of the WUTLESS MEDA in the Bahamas, when will you’ll begin to exercise professionalism in your craft? Stop looking at the picture and PLEASE begin analyze it. The Speaker failed in communicating the rules, Hanna-Martin defied the Chair and the Parliament today cannot function!The part we love in all this however is this, Hanna-Martin and the PLP stopped us from hearing Mugabe’s Bilious DIATRIBE for another WEEK! YIPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEE!!!
Ahhhhh well, so much for Mugabe who has that pacemaker somewhere lodged in that old cold heart of his, he clearly cannot cuss like he wishes anymore. Hmmmmm!
