Sir Sol Kerzner and Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham.

Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Hubert Ingraham was not at the groundbreaking of Bahamar today. For some reason the leader of the FNM was absent [perhaps intentionally] because since Bahamar – which he heavily criticized – not one major contract has been welcomed to the Bahamas by the FNM.

BahaMar is spending some $2.5 Billion into the local economy.

Moreso, we must wonder what or who has taken control of the puppet to act in this way. Why did the PM, who has approved the largest contract in the history of the Bahamas refused to attend? Why would he not seek to put his rubber stamp at the ceremony? Why did Ingraham not speak at the groundbreaking event?

Was the US concerns with Papa relations with China the reason for his absence?

Brent Symonette was the keynote speaker today. Is he the new PM? We shall see.

We cry dutty shame on Hubert Ingraham !

The FNM IS FIGHTING • PAPA AIN’T RUNNING • AND WE NEED CHANGE!

  1. alantis is papa heart we all no that. but baha mar is perry heart. so he let perry enjoy his new project. i never know papa had compassion..lol.

  2. you know what everybody is glad for this bahamar deal,but it show’s that our leaders have no idea how to take this country to the next levle.as far as they are concern we are wokers and that’s all we will ever be,can i help you with your bags sir,can i take your drink order mam ,etc i tell you when will we as a people want more for ourselfs.the bottom line is if the current owners can’t afford to keep the hotels open ,the chinise will take over and if they don’t want it anymore they will sell so where is ownership in it for us.don’t get me wrong we need jobs but as a young bahamian i think we need to take this country in a different direction.

    Called you “what” name? I did no such thing. About the matter at hand, The voters did not “come home in 2002” as you assert. The HISTORICAL FACTS INTERPRETED IN THE CONTEXT OF HISTORICAL EVENTS will objectively show that because of the PROFOUND ARROGANCE displayed by the FNM party in “bull dozing ahead” with what was humourously labelled “the sweetheart bill” they lost all affection garnered over the previous 10 years, and thus lost both the referendum and general elections. The loss WAS ATTRIBUTED TO ARROGANCE AND A FEELING OF INVINCIBILITY ON THE PART OF THE FNM. The Referendum vote margin mirrored the general elections outcome. Clearly, FNMs in overwhelming numbers voted against the sweetheart bill and many openly admitted to voting for the PLP in the general elections that followed (they sit had a thirst for blood even after the FNM referendum defeat).

    The FNM not getting 50% of the eligible voters support is a mute point. Why? THOSE WHO VOTED FOR THIRD PARTY CANDIDATES, SOBERLY VOTED AGAINST BOTH THE PLP AND THE FNM. TO HEAR THE PLP EMBRACE THOSE NON-PLP SUPPORTERS VOTE IN THEIR QUEST TO MARGINALIZE THE VICTORY OF THE FNM IS THE ULTIMATE DISPLAY OF SELF-DECEPTION.

    The campaign of the PLP was uncoordinated because the party was preoccupied with the this and that one fighting, the alleged rape by that one, the scandal about the toilet bowl removal by the next one, the “speedy” residence permit approval for a former porn celebrity by the next one, the banruptcy case and forced resignation by the next one. Altec, need I go on. Point being, calamities dominated the party. Not to mention that the leader did seem to have control over the cabinet (remember Leslie signed the oil deal with Hugo Chavez WITHOUT PRIOR CABINET DISCUSSION OR APPROVAL).

    You expressed your views in contrast to mine about the outcome in 2012. Since that area is specualtive (at best – no one knows now), we can agree to wait and see the outcome. See we can agree on something – LOL.

    I did not call you names. Looking forward to your thoughful response (there is a broad audience reading our posts – they know which position and interpretation of the historical facts are nearer to the truth).

    I responded to your post directed at me in which you attempted to revise history and indoctrinate me into PLPism. I maintain that THE FNM UNDER HUBERT INGRAHAM WAS REBRANDED AND NOW HAS THE BROADEST POSSIBLE APPEAL, EVEN ERODING BASE SUPPORT OF THE PLP IN MANY AREAS (THE INNER CITY AND LOWER MIDDLE CLASS SUPPORT – BAIN TOWN WENT FNM WITH GREGORY WILLIAMS ONCE). Altec, we can continue that “discussion” whenever you’re ready.

    • I did not “attempt to revise history” nor did i try are “indoctrinate you into PLPism.” You made a claim and i responded to your claim in an adult manner. I, in no way called you any names nor did i accuse you of anything. I simply rebutted your claim.

      So rather than respond to the points i made, you now want to make accusations against me and STILL CANT SAY ANYTHING TO REFUTE MY REBUTTAL OF YOUR INACCURATE CLAIMS!

      Fact is the 87 elections should have been Pindlings last one. The hand writing was on the wall!

      Fact is many PLP’s either didnt vote or voted for the FNM in 92 and 97. Pindling stayed on too long and it cost his party twice at the polls.

      Fact is those same PLP’s came home in 2002!

      Fact is there was apathy among the PLP base in 2007. the feeling was the PLP would win considering what it had accomplished. The mistake that was made was the party bought into this perception and as a result executed the most lackadaisical, uninspiring and uncoordinated campaign in the history of the PLP! And in spite of the bad performance by the PLP’s campaign team, the FNM still didnt get 50% of the total votes cast.

      If the FNM’s base has made such in roads as you claim, the 2007 elections wouldnt have been that close.

      The FNM’s base was clearly energized going into that election and still barely beat the PLP after they ran such a terrible national campaign.

      But we dont need to discuss this. If you think the FNM has made such in roads into the PLP’s base, lets just wait and see what happens when Papa rings the bell and he faces a UNIFIED, ORGANIZED, ENERGIZED PLP BASE AND PARTY!

      I am done responding to you as you seem to just want to muddy the waters and make unfounded accusations rather than discussing the issue.

      Have a nice day!

  5. Papa dont have to be at every single ground breaking event in this country, unlike those other fellas.He has competent men and woman who can rise to the ocassion and do simple things like that,its not all about taking pictures and saying fancy words to get on tv.Papa has already done the hard work.

    • Good with numbers how? By closing the government hot mix plant to sell his, is an easy way for him raise his riches. We call that pillage; or rape,rob, and plunder Chucky.

  6. BP, why are you surprised? remember what i told you several weeks back in my letter to the editor entitled “Papa got caught sweethearting?”

    Baha Mar is the sweetheart and Atlantis is the wife. You think the wife will like to hear her husband publicly praising his sweetheart? Papa Smurf wont diss the wife, at least not publicly.

    Dont mind Papa Smurf, he know just how to keep two women happy! Lol!

  7. “Papa” realizes that unlike in the period 2002 – 2007, the PLP has been “on their game” in the public relations department, thanks to Big Bad Brad. There is no SENSIBLE WAY TO SPIN THE CLAIM FOR CONSTRUCTION OF THIS HOTEL IN A WAY THAT BENEFITS THE FNM. It’s construction was directly opposed in parliament and outside in press statements by Papa. He (Papa) is ducking a photo opportunity that will put him in a position of having to admit that he was wrong all along. Such photos and accompanying statements will be regarded as precious gems in the hands of propagandists for the opposition party.
