Nassau, Bahamas — Commentary is flowing down the pipelines of the PLP like a tributary leading into the hungry ocean. Another politico has written commentary on the latest SAGA hitting the PLP. Former Chairman of the Progressive Liberal Party, Raynard Rigby, has penned comments to his facebook page calling on the leader of the PLP to wake up. Raynard Rigby writes:
RIGBY: One would have thought that given the conduct of Malcolm Adderley after the 2007 general election that the PLP would not be surprised at his recent decision to resign from the Party. I am advised that Mr. Adderley never attended the PLP parlaimentary caucus meetings and had essentially withdrew himself from participating with his fellow PLP MPs. Given these realities, amongst the many other signs, should not the PLP have been fully prepared to face the political check-mate that Mr. Adderley was planning? This is more the case after a similar departure by Kenyatta Gibson.
The truth of the matter the Leader ought to have demanded of Mr. Adderley to either join the caucus or resign from the seat. This ultimatum should have been communicated to Mr. Adderley at least 2 years ago.
This event along with the continued silence of the Leader give the obvious impression that the PLP is clueless and has no anwser, no approach and no politcal will to address the internal issues facing the Party. I would love to know what steps were taken by the “find-Malcolm” Committee.
The Bahamian people want to know whether the Leader is now fast asleep at the wheel. After all it was the Leader who said publicly that he ought to have been notified of any possible challenge to his position prior to the October 2009 convention so that he is not caught sleeping at the wheel! Has he fallen back to sleep? All signs lead to a resounding Yes.
Wake up Mr. Leader, Wake up!
