<<< Paul Moss
Nassau, Bahamas – Strapped for cash into the May 2007 election the PLP returned to the opposition politics in the country, however, a challenger to Perry Christie for the leadership of the Progressive liberal Party, Paul Moss, confirmed that ALL DEBTS INHERITED BY THE PLP WILL BE PAID IN FULL TO ALL CREDITORS, if he’s confirmed as leader of the Party at the October convention!
Moss made the statement on Friday whilst traveling throughout the region and engaging regional leaders. Moss noted that his concern number one as leader of the PLP would be to set the organization back onto a strong financial footing. “The first plan would be to pay in full every debt now owed by the party. This will be the beginning of many thing to come for the PLP and the people of our great country. Paying all our debts will be a fresh start for my Party, which win the next government,” he declared.
Since the May 2nd general elections the PLP has become strapped for cash, but this is not new. Since the Pindling years the PLP has had money problems. But no one has ever seen the PLP in such a deep financial stew. Under Perry Christie, donors and contributors have stopped giving to the party. He has not thwart the party from collapsing into financial chaos, and that’s Christie’s middle name, “Chaos”! The PLP, we at BP know, owes everyone! They owe so much people – even members of the party are asking them to pay up! Christie is hush on any effort to clear the debt and even on this issue he says not a DAMN WORD!
“Christie so WUTLESS we recently had a fun day to raise money for the crippling organization. My committee raised more than $50,000 for the event, but guess how much money was turned in? Less than $10,000. This is the state of the PLP and the leader is not doing anything to reform the Party,” A member of the PLP Women’s branch told BP.
Well, this is the state of the PLP under Christie. We now know the Party has such a cash and credit crisis, the October convention was cut from 5 days to 3 days. “Money is so bad BP, someone suggested a 1 day convention. Could you believe that?” another insider told BP.
Thousands of dollars we now know are owed to the Broadcasting Corporation of The Bahamas [ZNS and stations] by the PLP and there is still no intent by Christie to have the debt paid. And likewise bills have been collected from Abaco in the North to Acklins in the south for events held by the Party and yet still the PLP under Christie refuses to return to a strong financial political organization.
“Who is the treasure of the party? Where is the last treasure’s report? When was the party last audited? What are the current assets of the Party? The PLP nor the FNM for that matter has any transparency to itself and to its own followers, yet these are the people we elect to run the public money election after election. We need change!” another politico told BP.
Bahamas Press has warned the PLP that this is the state a Christie leadership will deliver them whenever an election is called; BROKE, DISORGANIZE and WEAK! It is his political friend Hubert Ingraham who he seeks to keep cemented in the seat of power in this country.
However, we can now confirm that for the first time there’s a new voice is echoing CHANGE! For the first time a political contender is promising to place the PLP on a path of financial strength. “We are prepare to do this, and this we will do when we face the giant in the next general elections,” a supporter of Paul Moss told BP.
On last week BP reported Christie’s threat to anyone challenging him for the leadership of the Party at a meeting on Grand Bahama. Christie told PLPs at that meeting anyone challenging him for the leadership “will be destroyed.” We said his bitter pronouncements was like gasp from the lips of Hitler towards the Jews. In a modern Bahamas there is NO WAY a leader could be so bold as to make such threatening pronouncements.
Members of the Jewish community must not have heard Christie! And people who promote democracy around the world must be sleeping at the WHEEL, AGAIN! How could a leader of a demo0cratic Bahamas find his tongue to threaten people who believes in democracy!?
All the more Christie’s actions recently in Grand Bahama tell us that it’s time for CHANGE in the country! Bahamas Press announced that a dark horse will challenge Christie as leader of the PLP at its upcoming October convention. BP will endorse that candidate challenging him.
We again say, at the end of the PLP’s 3 day convention, the entire leadership within the party will have a new face.
