Nassau, Bahamas: Last Thursday’s PLP NGC meeting brought the light the desperate tactics now being employed by Perry Christie. Firstly, Christie called the meeting to block challengers for the leadership post at the October convention.
However, Christie’s desperation at that meeting proved to be in overdrive. Christie stood up, after his failed motion could not be tabled, and began begging for sympathy. He began to thank NGC for allowing him to serve. He began thanking his family for their support. He began whispering his hope of continued support for the people begging, if he had another chance, he would be a better leader. But Christie has missed the point. He has missed the boat, the argument and the debate. PLPs had allowed him the chance to lead them for 12 years now and what did he do?
Christie went silent – he said not a word- when nurses began fighting for their insurance. He never issued a response to Hubert’s wicked actions against nurses. Christie GATS TO GO!
Christie went silent – and said not a word- when 80 workers recently at the Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort were laid off and sent home. Christie never not a statement!
Christie went silent – and said not a word – when 20 boys were wickedly molested by a clandestine pack of pedophile lovers at the Eight Mile Rock High School. Again, Christie was silent on the entire issue. He never met with the mothers, he never spoke to the school, Christie never toured the facilities. Christie completely ignored the matter.
Christie was silent and said not a word when the Rape of Taxpayers money began with the decision to move the Port to Arawak Cay. Where was Christie on the issue? Millions of the people’s money was being pumped to move wealthy businessmen from the city to the city. Christie said nothing, he questioned nothing, He added no comment and we know why.
Christie was silent – and said not a word – when Hubert Ingraham delivered the largest tax increase on struggling Bahamians. The tax hike by Ingraham was the LARGEST in the history of the country. Hubert placed taxes in 2007 on the Bible, where was Christie on the issue?
PLPs would remember how Christie completely ignored his PLP members in his last administration. For 5 years Christie and Obie hired scores of FNMs, Including Ingraham’s son and son-in-law. They appointed commissions headed by known FNMs. They left in place scored of officers in ministries who wiped PLPs night and day. Christie stood by and did nothing to help his own.
Well, October 22nd is the day for PLPs to ROLL CHRISTIE OUT! In just 11 days, PLPs will hold the power to KICK HIM OUT! It will be their time to tell Christie they do not want him around ANYMORE! It is time to VOTE HIM OUT! The time has come to send Christie into retirement. IT IS THE TIME to remind him once again, for a second time, he will make history again. Christie will become the first PLP leader to be toppled at a Convention!
Bahamas Press calls on all PLP stalwarts to CHANGE ITS LEADER! REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE!
Christie could not help you then and he cannot do it now!
We need Change!
