PAPA the Desperate Man meets Cassius Stuart the Opportunist

BDM Leader Cassius Stuart now joined the FNM.

Papa is getting more and more desperate these days, and just minutes ago BP has learnt, leader of the BDM, Cassius Stuart, has been signed, sealed and delivered into the hands of the FNM.

Sources high up in the Apparatchik of the FNM tell us, “Papa has collected Stuart in his bran new bag, and an announcement of the new political marriage between the BDM and the FNM is slated for this afternoon.”

We can tell you Stuart was offered some four seats including Bamboo Town, Clifton, Kennedy, and South Beach, all left abandoned by the FNM MPs.

Sources also tell us the Party is also in talks with Workers Party Leader, Rodney Moncur.

On politico observing the high drama unfolding today in the FNM said, “Stuart was recently downtown Bay Street less than a month ago protesting the sale of BTC to Cable and Wireless. How could a blockhead change his mind so quickly? This goes to show the kind of desperation that is set inside the FNM. They smell defeat, they see defeat and are already feeling defeated from within.

    Altec, Altec, Altec, I am not “dodging” any thing. You expressed views that were interpretations, personal interpretations I add, to some past elections results. I disagreed with your “opinion” that the data was suggestive of THE FACT that there are NO INDEPENDENT VOTERS out there. I strongly disagreed with your view that even if there are independents out there, they are reflected in the totals of all third party and independent candidates. Which resulted in your conclusion that such voters (third party supporters) represents the SUM of all independents in the Bahamas.

    I took the time to repeat the “basis” of your argument here so that all readers can determine for themselves whether or not your position is reasonable. I maintain the view that our election statistics is “raw” and “unfiltered” data, showing only totals (i.e. how many supported this candidate, which polling division did they vote in, which candidate prevailed, etc.) and any attempt to read “into” those numbers and catergories beyond what is plainly reported requires imagination and invention … I maintain that position.

    Now to the matter at hand. Love 97FM carried the same polling data reports in their 1pm news today, so there is a likelihood that they will follow-up with this story again tonight (radio and television). Why would I be struggling to maintain my position if your position is being refuted by independent sources, Altec? I hope that you both hear and see the report today so that you can respond to it. Looking forward (keep your head up).

  2. LOL man cassius can’t be serious. Anyone could figure out he only looking out for himself. I know he tired of getting less than half a dozen votes in 11 years and handcuffing himself to the mace, but this has to be his to be the stupidest thing he has ever done. I hope the constituency that he runs in the people will see right through him.

  3. Cassius knows that nobody voted for him as an independent and they certainly would not do it now just because he joined the FNM. Politicians need to understand that Bahamians are not as foolish as we used to be, these shenangans simply will not do. Clearly the PM is doing everything in his power to keep Branville out of power so Branville must be doing something right. Deperate times call for desperate measures and the PM is obviously ‘DESPERATE’ to think that Cassius is a good choice. This is all so funny and Bahamians the joke is on us! We need to wisen up and show these peope who is boss!!!

  4. OH, THEY SCARED, THEY SCARED PLP COMING! MY OH MY PAPA BEAR IS PICKING UP TRASH AND MAKING THE FNM A DUMP SITE!

  5. BP to me this is not even newsworthy for as long as he has been in the political arena he has never even won his deposit back. He will be forever remembered as a political parasite who would suck on even the devil if it means to get in the house. The closes he will ever come is to sit in the gallery. What a loser

    CABLE 12 CARRIED A NEWS STORY TONIGHT IN WHICH A COMPANY CALLED “PUBLIC DOMAIN” CONDUCTED A POLL OF 400 PERSONS (ELIGIBLE VOTERS) BETWEEN FEBRUARY AND NOW WITH RESULTS THAT INDICATE EXACTLY WHAT STORM, LADY RUSSELL, BAHAMIANREALIST AND ANOTHER POSTER SAID IN RESPONSES TO AN ARTICLE ATTRIBUTED TO YOU ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO. AND THAT IS INDEPENDENT VOTERS ARE PRESENT IN SUBSTANTIAL NUMBERS (ALMOST 33% OF POTENTIAL VOTERS ACCORDING TO THE POLL NUMBERS REPORTED TONIGHT) NOW WHICH IS A CONSIDERABLE INCREASE. WHAT SAY YOU ABOUT THAT STORY AND THE POLL RESULTS?

    • First of, you have yet to answer any of the questions i put to you in the comments section of the last letter to the editor i wrote. You want me to respond to your arguments, and you dont even make an attempt to answer the questions i put in response to your claims. SMH!

      Secondly, I didn’t see the report on Cable 12.

      Thirdly, i have not heard about that poll or seen its internals or cross tabs.

      But if you agree with the poll’s findings that “almost 33% of potential voters” are independents, then that’s your prerogative. I have already put my thoughts out there for all to see, meanwhile, your still trying to find and cling on to any shred of evidence to prove your unsubstantiated point of view.

      Its obvious my letter to the editor has you doubting and struggling to maintain your personal view that there are large numbers of independent voters out there to sway an election as 3 weeks later, your still posting comments about it.

      Furthermore, the recent actions of Dr Rollins, Cassius Stuart and Renward Wells dont throw a good light on your position as they themselves have made decisions that doesnt support your view.

      Fourthly, you say that this 33% of potential [independent] voters are a “considerable increase”? “Considerable increase” over what and over what period? And what past data did the pollsters use to compare their results against? Cause I would really like to know, lol.

      But i bet you didnt bother to ask or think about that. You were just happy to find something that gave your view some sort of life.

  7. I’m trying hard to figure out WHY this is a story??? Cassius has NO political currency and all this move does is show how desperate both he and hubert are. The deep dark secret of hubert’s past would reveal he has a liking for balls…well I guess he just acquired two more…..

  8. Cassius Stuart is a miserable spitty mouth failure.It is evident he will do ANYTHING to become a Member of Parliament. He is the same man who opposed the FNM on all fronts including the most recent Elizabeth by-election and now he is “in bed” with them? SAD! Mr. Staurt you have FAILED the undecided voter by selling your birthright and party for a bowl of porridge, you will NEVER see the walls of Parliment as an MP. Additionally I ask BP how come the case against Mr. Staurt hasn’t come before the courts when he attempted to remove the Speaker’s mace and disrupt the honourable House some years ago? Isn’t the FNM suppose to have some “code of ethics” outlined for its sitting and perspective MP’s? Many Bahamians have not forgotten this. It is shameful, A DAMN SHAME that this outgoing FNM government is presenting a man who violated laws as a candidate in the election. WHAT MADNESS! And they want the citizens of this country to obey ALL laws or face penalties like the small business owners who employ fellow Bahamians and support thier families were subjected to heavy fines if they did not renew thier business licences ON TIME? All I can say is DESPARATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPARATE MEASURES!

    • IT IS ALL AN ACT OF DESPARATION! AND DESPARATE PEOPLE DO DESPARATE THINGS! BYE YALL I GAT ANOTHER MURDER ON MY HAND!

  9. Renward Wells NDP is already in much better shape than the FNM with his party having two positive fundamental principles in place for deepening our Bahamian democracy and empowering the Bahamian people. Granted the FNM actually has three principals but many believe it’s more about empowering just ‘one man’s selfishness’?
    The FNM first principal is although nearing the end of their third term of government they have failed Bahamians by taking no serious action to make important changes to an out of date colonial justice system that contributes to allowing hardened criminals, including murderers and rapists, to roam free on bail while they scare the hell out of Bahamians while committing even more violent crimes.
    The FNM’s second principal is being deliberately untruthful in their efforts to convince Bahamians that they must fear Bahamians who associate with known criminals, just because they attempted to exercise their democratic right to protest against this government’s sale of BTC. .
    The FNM’s third principal is to paint a dark picture in the mind’s of Bahamians that they are to fear all who disagree with this government, including politicians, business owners, the clergy as being unruly, undemocratic Bahamians who are out to destroy our Bahamas because there is but ‘one man’ who knows how to save it.
    There is still much to be answered as to why the prime minister did not lead his party in the 2002 General Elections. Was it, as some believe that the party’s financial backers pushed him or did he recognize what his cabinet colleagues already knew but dare not tell him, that his utter arrogance would all but guarantee the party’s defeat?
    Little has changed since 2002 or 2007 for that matter except this time around the prime minister had the misfortune to ignore a young cabinet colleague who would indeed stand up to him. I believe the deciding factor why the prime minister resigned the leadership was not that he had the best interest of the party at heart, but himself. Much more than not wanting to be on record as the second prime minister to be defeated, but to have been defeated by none other than Perry Christie.
    Will his selfishness once again put his party through what he did in 2002, to not only backroom deal to interfere with the choice of a new party leader, but to wait until the last minute to announce his intent, increasing the party’s chances of not winning reelection as the government but to await the almost certain punishment at the hands of the electorates as the executioner? Will it be Tommy all over again or Brent Symonette?
    I don’t think much will change regardless of which FNM he anoints, the rejection Die is already being prepared for casting at the Election Polls, even if the party could find another leader who truly believes in his head that He’s half man and half-God.
    Hmmmm.. Who does that sound like?

  10. A lot of voters never paid any attention to Cassius Stuart as past election results showed. For the life of me I don’t why Cassius and many others are hell bent on becoming MPs, what’s the big deal?. Past MPs will tell you, its only a bunch of headaches. Right now Cassius can’t do anything for himself, he refuses to get a regular job, so how can he do anything for anyone else. Cassius Stuart is a chronic public nuisance looking for attention. Now whatever mortal remains he has, has been sold to HAI, and whatever seat he is offered, he loses. Cassius, ya cant hold onto Hubert gowntail an ride into parliament, everyone holdin on ger get beat dis time, u gone from lookin bad 2 worse. If you had joined the PLP, the comments would be the same, just to let you know. Anyway, you never had any integrity anyhow so you fit right in. You still hang around the ladies at UWI dorms talking about how you can build castles in the clouds?. Cassius, get a life buddy before it passes you completely by.

  11. You talking about a different Rodney Moncur right???? No way the Rodney whose fearless, allergic to FNM and foolishness. No way!!!! Say it ain’t so!! 🙁

  12. LOL! Cassius is a joke on every level. Where does this guy work? What does he have going for him? I wish he does join so that he can be beaten at the polls. This will really send him into the land of political nobodies this time. He would have lost as a BDM candidate and and FNM candidate. He was a nobody before and this time he will branded a nobody and a loser. I know Cassius from Nashville days and anything he says take it with a grain of salt.

    • JOKE? Man the FNM unvailing him right now as we speak. DRESSED IN THAT BIG RED DINGY T_SHIRT! ANOTHER SPINLESS WONDER WITH TESTICALS! We even aint sure if he carring the other part.

      SHAME!

      BP

  13. Caesar:
    Let me have men about me that are fat,
    Sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights.
    Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look,
    He thinks too much; such men are dangerous

    • Yon, but point taken. Cassius? Lean and HUngry? Really? Think Dennis Healey after being attacked by Geoffrey Howe “Like being savaged by a dead sheep.”

  14. HE HAS MADE HIS DECISSION, SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL. THE PLP DOSE NOT OWN THIS TOWN NOR DO THEY OWN THE PEOPLE. bECAUSE HE DID NOT JOINE THE PLP THEN THE FMN IS DESPRATE

    • Chile Laura, Peter or whoever you are, you have missed the point entirely! It is simply wonderful that Cassius will announce his membership in the FNM this evening, as his presence on their candidates list will ensure that one more seat is lost to their dishonourable gangland tactics!

  15. How long will this marriage last?Papa just lives to enjoy cutting out the balls of his opposers.Independent minded individuals like Cassius will find that their style is not accepted in the FNM. wILL OTHER MEMBERS OF THE BDM get a pass like Cassius?Is Cassius still against the sale of BTC?Questions abound Cassius and you must speak or forever hold your peace.

    • Well for Stuart the cutting may have already been done…LONG BEFORE PAPA even came around. We have nothing more to say on that!

      BP

  16. Cassius works at a number house as a so called ‘consultant’. This man is claims to be so driven by honesty, integrity and all that other crap, is just another sleazy liar and hyprocrite!! what fall today Cassius…what number fall today?? lol..

    • @ Diehard

      So what’s the big deal? Wait tell Christie join the FNM and run against Mother Pratt. There is no such thing as fair fight.

    • @ DIEHARD

      Must you lie to get your point across. Cassius like a lot of other buisneses has an office in the the building on centerville. Does being there makes them a part of all of the operations housed there.
      GET A LIFE FELLA

    • weal link that what they all are lone talks and ******** how can a head of a party join a next wow see they all cannot be trusted

    • You really think that highly of Cassius? He had become politically stale as the NDP was sucking up all the 3rd party attention. Once the NDP took the 3rd party mantle, it was only a matter of time before Cassius became FNM or PLP.

      This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. When was the last time your heard peep from the BDM or its leader? If after 11 years you are not getting any traction whatsoever, you have to rethink everything.

      Cassius became politically irrelevant and this move by him was his way of trying to resuscitate his half dead political career.

      If the rumors are true about him being offered the choice of any of 4 constituencies (Bamboo Town, Marathon, Kennedy, and South Beach), then he has his work cut out for him.

  17. Papa is a master at spotting men and women who would be grateful for the $25,000– annual salary,that M.P.s receive. Once he has you, you must toe the line or jeopardise your $25,000–. The good thing for Cassius is that he no longer has to try to convince people that he works for living and is productive. He will become another one of Ingraham’s court jesters (and boot-lickers-at-large).

    He said that Ingraham was a sell-out, so now he will join and start selling as well. I admonish him to stay away from the Dowdeswell St. area though as the competition is fierce!!!

    • ITS ALL ABOUT FREEDOM OF CHOICE….YOU MADE YOURS NOW HE IS MAKING HIS, AND I WILL MINE ON D-DAY…SO LET STOP HATING…EVERYBODY DESERVE TO MAKE THEIR OWN CHOICES…DEMOCRACY AT WORK….YOU ALL ARE SMART? RIGHT? OR JSUT A BUNCH OF LOST HATERS WHO EXPECT ALL TO HATE PAPA LIKE YOU DO….NEVER HAPPEN OK. SO WAKE UP

      • He’s simple a ****** who has found herself a new pimp that’s it. And what does a pimp do use u up and spit you out. you gatta liken him to one a does young guys who them sissy wave a couple a dollars too and they hope in the car hoping to get a pair of jordans for a head job. What a punk.
